What's Happening? July 10, 2016

The Latest News:  Summer is passing quickly with mundane tasks like flea bombing the house when you have 4 cats and 1 with fleas!   It's been perfect weather this weekend even though we've been hurting for rain.    

Some other new points of what I'm doing:
1.  I've given the secret of Stargate out to another.  This person has same interests as I do.  She is into dream work. Stargate has no applications for any governments, but has the potential to make witches and other occultists 3-5 times stronger in their work.  Of course, if any government is working with mental projection the books on Stargate hold a lot of potential.  Why hold the secrets all to myself.  Soon, I hope to have my secrets out to all my readers.
2. The Magical Memoir of Nectanebus II will be an eBook and I hope to publish it with Ingram's self-publisher.
3. My free eBook about the ancient languages is complete.  My Egyptian chapter is finished.  This is my theory of the languages: Egyptian language was based on the sounds of daily life and animals, Hebrew was very similar to some of the Egyptian vowel sounds and Greek completely caught the sounds of chakras.
4. Sales from my books will test to see if there is any money in publishing.  I only hope to publish 3 more books in paper and the last will be an eBook.  My essays you will be able to read here on this blog.
5. Over time, you will see me build my free occult directory.   It's been done at other sites, but that ends up being an advertisement.  I can let my readers in on my past experience while I discuss groups out there on the web.  So, you will start to see all my occult sources that made me what I am today.  You'll see one out there for the late Al Manning.

Secondary and Work
:
1. Writing nonfiction is hard work!  I have kept editing this book about about Gray-Cobb and my own style of magic.  I keep coming up with more changes.
2. My new online mini-book "Say God's Name: A New Way to Pronounce the Ancient Languages".  The book about the Golden Dawn has other systems such as Askenazic Hebrew and another method.  I will highlight those and then cover the reasons for my own system.   I should test all 3 systems to see which gives better results.  I thought of this while I've been working on my second book.
3. I've learned significantly about Kaballah (magic), Freemason initiation from 10 years of study and Egyptian mysteries.  I need to pass this on in the form of books.  In the case that the U.S. government shuts down due to budget talks - most nations will be able to see our government's ridiculous sideshow on how not run the U.S., I will publish in my books in Canada.  It is my intention to sell my books in other languages in Europe anyway because my interest comes from worldwide readers.
5. My occupational life seems to be dull and stagnant at this point.  Being an author in this blog brings me more fulfillment than I've gotten from other things I've worked at.  Occult has always been an interest and I will pass this to others that are on the same path.
6. I still need to get my first book sold on Etsy.  The books are handmade and I have 290 books left.
7. Testing, testing and more testing.  I try to use my books to change my life first and then I can add real life experiences to my writing.  I need to test before I release any books and then I can tell others of the results that they may expect.

See the post below on New Avatar Power (Get Your Instructions As Through Geof Gray-Cobb was Still Alive).  There is a puzzle to solve.  If you are successful you will get another N.A.P. type ritual for FREE!.

My Goals As An Author:  My second book out will be about Gray-Cobb's magic.  The Canadian occultist and psychic was on the cutting edge of making long complex rituals short and concise.  There were essentially stripped down rituals from the Golden Dawn and other magical grimoires.  Nobody had ever thought of doing what he had done.  I've decided to carry on his work with Avatar Power and consider myself an apprentice of the master.  As the rough draft of my fictional Freemasonry book is almost done, I will start working on my fourth book: Egyptian magic.   A free copy will be delivered to the Grand Lodge of England in 2016.  I believe it will be a controversial book that may amuse some Freemasons, but also infuriate others.  My fifth book will be my memoirs involving a variety of topics: affirmations, black magic, my own system of prayer, the Voynich manuscript and the U.S. Stargate program.  Stargate has a lot of meaning for pagans.   It means a lot of extra power.   My next books after that will be about invocation, evocations and finally god worship.  So, I better get off my butt and get busy!  I've got at least 8 more books to write.

My Projects on the Side:  I'm going over to a list form so I can inform you as well as keep my notes organized for what I am about to do.  This should work better for me.
1. Place my first book, "The Cat Speaks Egyptian" on Etsy.  Update details about what the book is really about on my wordpress blog.  My publisher is slow in getting info on his weebly site as he has had other things to do.  See below.  This is my first book!  Binding and gluing take too long.  I can't work on my next book if we're busy making books.
2. Work on Sounds of GOD are coming.  I don't want to put the sounds out until my books are out and then I may need to advertise on youtube.com and link back here.  Youtube Movies are in the future to show someone exactly how to pronounce Thoth's name.
3. My other blog, www.geniuscubed.wordpress.com, is kind of in limbo at the moment.  I've been too involved in other things.  I need to get back to that before they disable an inactive account!  It will be my science fiction writing which will focus on business, politics and government as if I ran the U.S.  Hey, I can't do any worse than the politicians!
4. My first book was a miniature book with pictures: thecatspeaksegyptian.weebly.com and this needs to be finished.

Old Ideas to Follow Up on Sometime:  After browsing 'The Elements of Music' by Jason Martineau and the 'Divine Name' by Jonathan Goldman I got some ideas from all the other things.
A. I will check with Goldman to see if his site has put the divine name in parallel (sounds on top of each other - 4 angels - 4 Freemasons saying the name together.  I don't think the name is said in series (sounds following each other).
B.  Ideas came from my concepts in 'Duncan's Ritual of Freemasonry' with the 3 Freemasons moving in unison 'Figure 32 THREE TIMES THREE' (see website www.sacred-texts.com/mas/dun/dun08.htm).  The word needs to be pronounced in parallel instead of serial.
C. I will always attempt to update the old entries to make them better and may introduce a new topic once in awhile as time becomes available.  Some of my ideas and experiments with the "Rite of Adam" will show up in my science fiction blog.

I BELIEVE:
1. I am somewhat between being a Deist and and a Pantheist.  We are in a universe that has natural laws as though the Creator made the world and stepped back to allow man to work.   We also seem to have a world that has beings that can be commanded to complete tasks or provide information.   I like the Postmodern philosophy on life and have considered certain Atheist ideas as valuable also.  Atheists have an interesting view on life.

Reflecting on my Past:
I think that we co-create our world with others through visualization and affirmations.  My worldview is in a Supreme Creator, but it is a deistic view since he set the world in motion and does nothing at the present time.  Miracles occur because we tend to believe strongly that something will occur.  Not all of us believe in miracles and that would account for reality being 99% miracle free.  Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet?  Over the summer, most Americans would believe in that.  In my teens, I was pushed to go to a "holy-roller" church to find miraculous healings going on.  The only explanation for what I saw: it is either (1) a magician's trick such as a fake to attract new members or (2) that human beings have an inherent God-power within them that make spectacular healing miracles possible.  We are each little gods co-creating our world.

I will work my best to make sure this blog will continue.   I will continue to make it one of the most comprehensive, provocative places on the web for occult thought.

The Diabolic Discourse

New July 2, 2016

As some of you have worked with Israel Regardie's Middle Pillar Ritual, it is one of the most powerful forms of mysticism out there.   The mystical forces are almost overwhelming if you meditate on them on a daily basis.    If you refer to some of the books on the Middle Pillar many authors point out that the feet is the area where the Earth is located.   Next, Water is located in the groin area.  After this, Fire is located in the Heart region. After this is the Air which is supposedly located in the throat.   Finally, comes the Spirit, or 5th element, located halfway inside the top of our head and the other half above the head.   If you Geof Gray-Cobb's book on Avatar Power you can see an illustration that refers to this ritual.

The books say the sphere of energy located in the throat doesn't really exist.   It is as if it is missing.   I will have to look at some of my books to see what they really call it.   However, I think I have an answer for working with the missing Air sphere.

Master Rite of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

Revised From An Older Entry 7-2-16

This entry is being updated and was originally called "My Philospher's Stone - The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree".   I am going to delete the old entry referring to a eBook I was going to produce.   I never got around to doing the eBook and have decided to let the public work on this one as I describe the ritual in its entirety.

Anyone who has Christian teachings in life is familiar with the Garden of Eden story. Assuming the story was real with a real Adam and Eve the Tree of Knowledge of the Good and Evil existed at one time. Using information from the description of this Rite, one should be able to construct a ritual to have the participant identify with Adam, transform a piece of fruit into the apple from the Garden of Eden. The participant would take a bite to obtain the visions or knowledge of Adam. All knowledge should flow into the participant and that person, theoretically, should become a god.  This is a ritual involving a communion.  I am looking at protestant transformation ceremonies that involve communion. Some of you may be familiar with these. This ritual, with Masonic overtones, is what I can also call the Rite of Adam. Ritual of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. (abbreviated: R.O.T.T.O.K.O.G.A.E.) It may be dangerous. I was working on my Ritual of the Nonself (abbreviated: R.O.T.N.) and may have contracted an illness held by the target contact in my experiment. I have halted testing of that ritual for the time being. The ritual is to help one become another person in thought, word and deed.   After much work, I realize that the Ritual of the Nonself may be something along the lines of the Martinists.  Check out the 'Book of Secrets'.   My work with the Ritual of the Nonself may lead to the Tree of Knowledge.   Some may be wondering what I meant by 'The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree'.   The expression may refer to a son who hasn't amounted to anything good - acting just like the rest of his family.  However, I am referring to something altogether different.

Essentially, the Rite involves 3 main ideas: 1. An apple is used during the ceremony 2. You identify the apple as being one and the same with the apple that Adam and Eve ate 3. You eat the apple 4. You identify with Adam 5. You derive some spiritual experience where you may become "God-like" for an instant.

Some have said that the instant Adam and Eve ate the apple in the garden that they became God-like and all-knowing.   That is the goal of this rite.   This was the fall of mankind and we suffer Adam and Eve's sins to this day (if you believe the Christian view).  Why would we want to suffer if we didn't commit the same sin as the 2 in the Garden of Eden?   You know the Christian view:  sins of the fathers are upon the children.

My philosopher's stone might actually be the result of my 30 plus years of occultism studies.   I may have enough material from what I've studied: a philosophical secret organization, witchcraft, Freemasonry studies, and ancient mysteries.    My spiritual fathers are those philosophers that have gone before.   They are my heroes.   You can tell who you are meant to be by the type of heroes you have.   Who do you respect?   Who is your idol?    Answering questions like these says a lot about who you really are.  Claude de St. Martin would be one of mine.   Essentially, everything I need is already inside me.   I have to look inside myself.   The apple has fallen and it is there for the taking.   I just have to eat it and wait to see what happens. I am in my 50's and I'm willing to take more chances.   My life is mediocre with nothing really exciting in my career.   I worked magic to create change and excitement; it was like opening Pandora's box or going into the 'Twilight Zone'.   It was very much surrealistic.   Assuming that the Devil was the Serpent in the Garden of Eden it seems natural to pull him up for such an operation.    

Master Rite of the Nonself

New July 2, 2016

Previously, in my work with Rosicrucianism, I became exposed to another field of occultism: Martinism.   Martinists more or less examine the works of Louis Claude de St. Martin.   I won't go into the complete history, but his work is a belief in being close to God by using a form of prayers that he devised.   It is an opposing belief from the order that he was working with.  [I will add more details here later]    Some of the other members were using the evocation of spirits in order to encounter God.   St. Martin was opposed to this idea of contacting God.  While I never got to the higher degrees of Martinism, I am still under oath as not to reveal the concepts.   You may have the opportunity to join a Martinist group after you've become a Rosicrucian but you may become disillusioned or disappointed after you've seen a ritual.  It appears that most of the leaders of such rituals never tell the members what they are supposed to get out of it.   It can be like witnessing a dramatic play with no explanation.

I became inactive after awhile.  A book, available publicly, pointed out that Martinists seek to become unified with the mind of St. Martin.   While I disputed his philosophies as valid, I still was not quite convinced that his path was right for me.   Why would I ever seek to have his mind joined with mine even if I was successful?   I have even developed my own form of prayer, that I feel, is more successful with particular goals.

I have come up with a better target: Nicolas Flamel.   The alchemist credited with finding the Philosopher's Stone.   It it the aim of alchemy to develop this stone.

The Rite: 1. Study Nicolas Flamel  2. Identify with him to become the alchemist in thought, word and deed.

More details on this process coming up!

Sage Advice from an Armchair Alchemist

July 12, 2016

My publisher recently put out his blog entry on gruit ale and found some startling facts.   I just used some kitchen spice to be a great picture for this blog entry.  Of course, the spice pictured is really what we are talking about here.  See his blog at:


http://concoctingbrews.weebly.com/

He tells us: "sage was used to remove iron from a spa during the early 1900's."  

If you were to look at the Kabbalistic tree, Jupiter is represented by Chesed on the right pillar.   Immediately, to the left pillar, you have Mars represented by the sphere Geburah.  This is interesting.   Sage is a plant corresponding to the sphere Jupiter.   If Sage does diminish Iron, then this is using a plant of Jupiter to dissolve an element of Mars on the opposite pillar.   Sage would balance out the other plants or minerals of Mars and might be an effect of alchemical chemistry.   I do recall reading somewhere that sage is full of the metal tin.   Tin is a metal corresponding to Jupiter.

This is simply amazing.   I was thinking of composing an experiment with part of an old rusty nail, in a jar in solution of water. One would then add periodically more and more sage spice over time.  The rusty nail would be observed to see if it has a reaction with the metal or if the metal would slowly dissolve.

Much of this may be known by college level Chemistry students.   It does appear that tin ions will reduce iron ions to some extent.   This would be close to the alchemical knowledge.   

Another strange thing is that it has been determined that pine cones absorb or attract lead.   The pine tree is associated with the Roman god Saturn.   Now, it makes me wonder if other trees are sympathetic or associated with gods have the same properties.  If this is true the myrtle tree, associated with Aphrodite, should attract copper.   Something from myrtle tree should reduce mercury under the same lines of thinking.


The Voynich Manuscript Revisited



May 12, 2016

Over the years, I used to toy with trying to crack the Voynich Manuscipt.  Many others have come up with their theories.  I noticed that a particular shorthand exhibit was being displayed at the museum where I work. Shorthand was originally used in the development of teaching materials for the blind.  If you search on Lucas embossed stenographic characters you can see a number of examples in the image search of Google.   Several of these shorthand characters could have been used to solve some of the characters in the Voynich Manuscript.   I had always had a hunch that John Dee was behind the manuscript and his language of communication would have had to be middle English or Latin existent at the time of his life.   I remember reading that one individual, coincidentally with the same first name Lucas, solved  Roger Williams's shorthand that was previously unsolved.   

The stenographic characters created by T. M. Lucas are displayed on the page: http://chestofbooks.com/reference/American-Cyclopaedia-1/The-Blind.html
and also at:  http://www.nyise.org/blind/gall.htm

Of all the types, the Lucas characters have the characters that come the closest to possibly composing the code of the script.

The book, the Voynich Manuscipt: The Mysterious Code that has Defied Interpretation for Centuries by Gerry Kennedy and Rob Churchill has the Voynich manuscript letters shown on page 243.  The character shown above was interpreted to be the letter 'k'.  I made a rough drawing of the character myself above.  I could have drawn it with a better horizontal line; so sorry, the drawing is not as true as I had liked.  

Reexamining the Lucas characters, the character above could be formed from the code 'wh' with a vertical stroke and a slight curve to the right at the bottom of the stroke. The top of that stroke could have a loop symbolizing an 'o'. Connected to the loop is a horizontal stroke that could have been for an 's'. The additional vertical stroke for a 't' could have been a null character to make it more difficult to solve. The character above, feasibly, could be the word 'whos' which was a middle english word prior to when the word became 'whose' in our dictionary. I'm speculating, but this is a possible lead. I am researching some other characters to see if I can find some other matches.

Air, Earth, Fire and Water

New:  March 26, 2016

Many of heard of the concepts of air, earth, fire and water in occultism.  It is thought of as 4 elements that are commonly found in new age and occult reading.  I thought I would add this simple idea to the blog, but it can be a life changing concept.

While these 4 elements have been brought up by other authors, I thought I would give my input on best to use them.  Most people can use the elements for visualization and affirmations.   You don't have to use these for spirit work.

Start with the Earth element.  Any of your goals or dreams have attributes that can be sensed.  Go for a walk outside and notice the the ground or dirt next to your feet.  You get the idea even if you are in a grassy area.  Picture that same dirt with your eyes close.  Your goals have many different things about it just the dirt or earth outside.  It has a certain look about it.  You can hear dirt as you drop dirt from a height onto the ground.  It has smell and can be felt.  It even has taste, but we will leave that one to babies that may eat dirt from time to time!   Picture your goals or dreams with your eyes closed and try to sense all you can about your objective.   For example, one might be looking for a new job and it may help to narrow the definition down to what I really want: a job more than $10 an hour.  This is a modest ideal, but some people are out of work and it may help

Next, we consider the Air element.   Notice that when someone speaks words it is similar to the wind. When the wind blows, you may think about it as your body is being impacted by this force of weather.  Words also make us think.  Thinking is the intellect involved and we need to put our goals and dreams into words that describe it.  Let's go back to our example of finding a job.   Let's state in words what we really are trying to achieve.  "I have a job that pays over $10 an hour."   There are many books on affirmations out there.   It helps to say your desire in present tense.  I find that affirmations have some way of occurring and it tends to keep you focused as if you are a piece of metal being pulled toward a magnet.

Thirdly, we examine the Fire element.   Things that you want are desires.   You have to take some kind of action toward those desires to make them come true.  Let's look at if you are trying to camp and you are going to cook something.  You might have some charcoal bricks and lighter fluid to grill something.   To get that fire going you need to light some matches or take some kind of action to achieve your goal.   That is if you want a fire to cook something you have to initiate or take some kind of action to get it going.  You get the idea.   Want and action must both happen for this to occur.

Lastly let's look at the Water element.   This is a very confusing idea for a lot of people.   Water usually is comprehended when we take a bath or swim in a lake.  You can feel it.   Emotions are very much the same thing as you feel them.  Can you feel as if your goal or dream has already taken place?   You can take many paths to get to this feeling of the water element.  Let's look back at our job example.  Feel as if you got the job: feel the exhilaration - the emotions that come with getting your goal.   Really immerse yourself in that feeling.

Now, you can see the engine that drives many self improvement books out there.   In just a few short paragraphs, I have summarized numerous books and websites on the subject.  To get something you must know everything about your goal.  Know, or at least imagine, what your goal might look like, sound like, feel to the touch, taste (if it has a taste) or smell (if it has that).  You should be able to put the goal into words - take the time to write that down in a notebook or log.   You should really want that goal and take steps to getting it.  Lastly, try to imagine the feeling you get from achieving your goal.
