What's Happening In These Cool Fall Days - September 11, 2016

The Latest News:  I have updated my entry on alchemy: Sage Advice from an Armchair Alchemist.   Go read it as I find this revelation fascinating to contemplate.  It has given me more ideas about things to try.  I'm a little late in getting my guess the card results for my Stargate entry as I've been busy dealing with exterminators and an abundant flea population because of my wife's love of cats.  We have 4.   Massive house cleaning and we had to vacate the house for a several hours.  Maybe my life can get back to normal here in a couple days as I still have to move everything back.   Just to satisfy the U.S. government about my knowledge of Stargate:  I'm having my wife proofread part of my eBook on the Stargate secrets.   While our Feds are worried about some national security issue that might be revealed (there is none), Stargate, has just made my psychic loaded gun that much stronger.   That's what I'm really excited about these days.  Nobody really knows what Stargate seems to imply.  It has been sent from my yahoo email to my wife's email.   They can see the secret right there entitled  "U.S. Government Stargate Secrets"  Of course, my state will read it as it hits their server with their cybersecurity department for sure.  Since it is being sent as an email, the U.S. government and the states can read anything coming over their servers if they think it threatens national security.   At this point, the Feds and the State of Michigan know what the chapter is all about.  I will send the final edit over Yahoo's email again for final edit.  My book will cover remote viewing, McMoneagle's ability, review some ancient myths and provide a theory as to one of the biggest Christian myths in the Bible.   I won't do a lot of editing of my eBook as it is supposed to be my memoir of a magical life.   A real life journal.  It's a personal theory I have, but I think I'm right on the money.  In this blog I will show how to use this information.  I loaded a new version of the software that I use for constellations.  For some reason, the Fort Meade location has been removed.  The constellations have changed quite a bit from what they were.   I'm wondering if the location was removed as requested by our government.  Or, the software is getting too many hits for the location.  I have a new version for my Chromebook and the skies are hours off from the old version running in an older version of Linux.  It is almost like the new one is on Pacific Standard Time: same as the zone for Google headquarters.   The world may be wondering what the secret of Stargate is, but I am only concerned with the look of the skies above Fort Meade back in 1997.  I am tying the government's graph data in McMoneagle's book to the skies above that location in 1997.  It is surprising results for the "new ager" as the data I am getting will help me to make my psychic, magic and divinatory skills stronger.   You will need the eBook I'm putting out and this blog to use timing to make yourself stronger as well.  I vow to help others interested in improving their occult skills as well.  My cover art for my first eBook is continuing at the moment till I get it right.  The new software shows the sun rising at 10:59 AM on the horizon and that can't be right.  Maybe, it is a configuration setting in the software.  I'm investigating by using our natural celestial bodies of the sky to see which one might be more accurate.   As soon as I find out, I will let everyone know.  I will try to apply the practical to this blog.  I know I discuss a lot of theories here but I want to show you how to improve your results if you are a witch, sorcerer or practicing any other forms of magic.  I've updated the Armchair Alchemist blog entry to show you why sage herb is important to you.   I'm pushing to get my magical memoir out.  At least these astronomy software problems won't effect the eBook coming out.  The only thing keeping me from that is some lack of persistence.   I am working on getting the cover page out for my latest eBook.   If Ingram doesn't wish to publish a book that covers witchcraft and charms than I will take it somewhere else. The secrets of divine providence, John Dee's mysterious symbol and Stargate will contained within.   Please note my latest entry:  U.S. Army Remote Viewing Experiments Show Us The Best Time To Be Psychic.  I decided to release the demonstration early.  Please note that I am releasing the demonstration early!  This is a demonstration you can see for yourself.  See the remote viewing entry about using a deck of playing cards.  I will be releasing a simple demonstration you can do at home to establish the best time for your area to be psychic.  You will notice I don't have any cities listed in the southern hemisphere.  I will address this issue when I show you the test.

Some other new points of what I'm doing:
1.  I will try my best to get my first eBook out this year.  Originally planned for later, I've decided to move up my memoir to the next thing I publish.  I hope to publish with Ingram's self-publisher.   The Stargate secret will be contained in it.  If you have a Barnes & Noble eBook reader you should be able to read it.  I'm looking at art work now for the cover.
2. 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.
3. Sales from my books will test to see if there is any money in publishing.  I only hope to publish 3 more books.  My essays you will be able to read here on this blog.
4. Over time, you will see me build my free occult directory.   I'm hoping to rival with the wikipedia out there with regards to their definition of the occult/new age.  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.

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.comis 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:
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.   Specific affirmations have lead me to understand that words control, not just what is going on in our bodies, but also tend to change the outer world if those words are stated repeatedly.  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.

U.S. Army Remote Viewing Experiments Show Us The Best Time To Be Psychic

DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR YOURSELF!   September 6, 2016

It's all in the CARDS!   I'm not talking tarot cards here:   Instead of making many of you wait till the holiday weekend, I decided to let you demonstrate this for yourself by getting an ordinary deck of playing cards.  Remove the jokers so that you should have 52 regular playing cards total.  At the various times indicated below for your city, try to guess the color of cards before you turn the cards over.  It will be black or red.  You will be measuring your own psychic ability.   I don't have a statistics degree, but if you get 26 cards right you are pretty much at normal probability.  If you get much above 26 cards right, record it at the various times.  Be sure to record your psychic time for the day.  Remember, the time occurs in your area about 4 minutes earlier everyday.  (See notes below)   I'm doing several trials now myself and will display my results in about a week.   I think if I have about 20+ trials at the psychic time and compare it to trials at the non-psychic time I should reach a valid conclusion.  The results are amazing and will only take 5 minutes at a time.  You may notice that you aren't really psychic, but your results may increase as you test yourself near the times to be psychic listed below.   I will be displaying my results with the playing cards soon.   I'm finding my results with guessing the cards improve 25% over my average at other times.   Not phenomenal, but it is still amazing to me.   I'm collecting more data of this experiment and will display my results soon.   Others of you, with greater amounts of intuition, may find bigger improvements when you try the cards.

If you saw my entry about "What's Happening" you will know that I mentioned I use a constellation software. One appears to be wrong.   Also, Fort Meade has been removed from the software for some reason.  This is quite odd and appears our government may have requested to have the city removed.  I have found a bypass to this problem listed below.  This was a previous entry but now I've updated it.   I am now tracking psychic times for a variety of cities in the U.S. and other countries as well.   More countries will follow.  My blog is read in over 30 languages and that allows for me to be seen in most countries of the world.   (Please note that the computer software I use may not account for Daylight Savings Time.  I may need to do a correction in the future to adjust for this.  I am writing an eBook that has to do with timing of magical rituals.)

As of August 23, 2016, this is the time you are the most psychic in these major cities using a 24-hour clock:  (Correction will be coming in the future as I need to calculate the adjustment for Daylight Savings Time)   More cities will be shown after I get the DST time correction finished.  Times listed are not sidereal but the real clock time for your area.   Around the U.S. Labor Day weekend when I have more time, I will give you my method to demonstrate for yourself what this peak time can do for you.   I will provide some data of my own, for my area, to give you some idea what this really means.   If your city isn't listed, you may be able to roughly compute approximately yours if you know your city coordinates west or east of the city listed.  Each degree west is about 3 minutes and 58 seconds later. From the data below, Lansing, Michigan looks like it is about 1.5 degrees west of Detroit Michigan.   For many of you that don't have computer software to check on this the alignment of the heavens can be checked visually.  In a clear sky, look up in the South direction, the double star Spica of the constellation Virgo will have just passed the South line when it is good in your area.

Lansing, Michigan, U.S.                  17:00       (my place of residence)

Detroit, Michigan, U.S.                   16:54
Chicago, Illinois, U.S.                      17:12
Denver, Colorado, U.S.                   18:21
Edmonton, Canada                          18:55
Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.                19:02
Seattle, Washington, U.S.               19:30
Juneau, Alaska, U.S.                       20:18
Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.                    21:52
Mumbai, India                                 18:30
Toronto, Canada                              16:39
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia                16:35
Manila, Phillipines                          15:17
Liverpool, England                          11:34
London, England                              11:23
Paris, France                                    11:13
Hamburg, Germany                         10:42
Berlin, Germany                              10:29
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation  9:21
Moscow, Russian Federation            8:52
Beijing, China                                     3:37
Sao Paulo, Brazil                                2:31

Be aware that the date for these times is good for August 23, 2016.  Each day afterwards the time has to be recalculated to be 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.1 seconds later for each day.   For example, the day afterwards in Lansing Michigan will be about 16:56  (not accounting for the 4.1 seconds).

NOTE: I use Stellarium software at www.stellarium.org/ to get my data.   Depending on the version you use, you may find discrepancies between the versions.   I may contact the organization to find out what is going on.   If they can't get it right I will announce their software is unreliable and that they need to fix it.   Just because they remove Fort Meade doesn't mean we can't use a work around and make an adjustment.   Fort Meade is 76.74138 degrees West and Washington, D.C. is 77.01638 degrees West.   Fort Meade is about 0.275 degrees East of Washington (the difference).   Using the conversions above:  0.275 degrees X 3.96667 minutes per degree = 1.09 minutes.  That just means that the constellations will occur at Fort Meade about 1 minute sooner than they do in Washington, D.C.  Now, if Stallarium removes Washington, D.C. I will just figure a conversion from another city!   Be aware Stellarium calls Washington D.C. just "Washington, United States".

In about 15 days, those seconds can be significant in your calculations.  This has to do with local sidereal time.   This calculation is the amount of time it takes a stationary observer on earth to see all the stars that normally pass over their respective spot before the stars start to repeat.  The times above were not found by using 13:30 local sidereal time mentioned by McMoneagle in his book.   They are the exact position, that psychic energy should be the greatest.   My memoir coming out soon will detail what the secret of Stargate is and why this time should be the greatest energy.  I don't look to calculate sidereal time, but I seek to find a particular arrangement of the heavens to determine the optimum period.

If you've read Joseph McMoneagle's book, Remote Viewing Secrets, you may have some idea about what I'm talking about.  Type into Google's search engine "local sidereal time psychic", click on the Images tab and you will find several graphs that show data from the experiments in the book.  Several websites have discussed this.  This graph shows the peak times to be psychic. Remote viewers for the U.S. army had tested psychic spying back in 1997. This is now declassified as this book has gone public.  Psychic spying is equivalent to mental projection.  It is an attempt to believe you can see a far away location in your mind.  Some individuals have a significant ability above others to do this.  They can describe somewhat the details from a distant location.  I am of the conviction that anyone can get better with practice.  This data is the result of many experiments. McMoneagle tries to explain it away in his book.  Scientists had felt it something to do with the location of the Milky Way in respect to the observer's location.  The Milky Way is located approximately between the Sagittarius and Scorpio constellations.  You can check Google to see its location next to those constellations in an image search.  So, the psychic time was better when the Milky Way wasn't visible from the observer's location.  When the Milky Way was visible from the horizon the ability dropped significantly for the observer.  From the book, I concluded that we have psychic levels that change throughout the day.

Astral Projection

New: August 9, 2016

I wanted to call this new chapter of my blog the Noncyclopedia, or Experienceclopedia (combining the words experiences and knowledge), to discuss a topic in the Wikipedia. As writers try to define the topic it is not a "a supposed form of telepathy" as mentioned in the Wikipedia. Telepathy may appear to become possible in the experience it is not, on the whole, a "form of telepathy". Astral projection is found in occultism and can be similar to lucid dreaming. The sense of astral projection may be experienced through hallucinations that may be brought on by medical operations or disorders as well.

While there may be no scientific evidence that the consciousness can separate from the body, the author Robert Monroe, collected much data from his astral projection experiences to write about it. His family, per info from his first book Journeys Out of the Body, believed that Monroe could project distances to perceive things going on his family's life without being physically present.

Monroe documented 3 realms of the astral world. The first one coincides with this world. Some travelers in the astral have been able to fly to points around the world or distant planets in space. The second realm appears to not be subject to time. Multiple times exist at the same time in this area. The third realm is some kind of parallel world that is similar to our world, but it has different features or technology than our own.

I myself underwent a contract with a witch years ago. I paid for an astral travel course for $45 which was supposed to help me project from my physical body. I was successful but the experience made me sick for the remainder of that day. I later used numerous books on astral projection to escape my body temporarily. I never was able to escape on a regular basis. It appears it is a skill that people are good at or only have the experiences temporarily.

There are a lot of books on the subject.  However, I find that these books are the true classics and were in my collection at one time.

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

September 11, 2016

"Before chemistry, alchemy was the science that was known. The alchemical processes were a riddle hidden from the ignorant. This list of processes, associated with the 12 zodiac signs, are found in many books on alchemy. Multiplication is the duplication of the organic or nonorganic substances. Crystals or yeasts are an example of the method by which substances duplicate: crystals or yeasts can be populated from other crystals or yeasts. Projection is the system or conditions that allow for duplication to occur. This projection is the heart of the philosopher's stone. Gold or diamonds, theoretically, should be able to grow (duplicate) given the right temperature, pressure and solution of dirt from the Earth."
- Nectanebus II

Although I've not gotten a degree in chemistry, I had taken several college level chemistry courses.  I had questioned the philosopher's stone for years wondering what it could be.   I love science and had read material at the MIT website:   http://web.mit.edu/x-ray/cystallize.html

I also read up on seed crystals here: http://chemistry.about.com/cs/growingcrystals/a/aa012604.htm

I am home beer brewer and had recently read about yeast farming, essentially, growing yeast from other yeast.  I have come to the conclusion that we already have discovered the philosopher's stone.   We just didn't know it was right there in front of us all along.  Using a seed of the substance, we can duplicate the substance over and over.

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:

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.

How do we apply it to our practical lives?  The most significant thing about alchemy is that it is important to magical ritual.   If you are into witchcraft, sorcery or other magic involving spirits you should use sage to help create a closer relationship with those Jupiter divine names, archangels, angels or spirits.   You will better attract the power through the use of sage along with the divine names.   Sage, should work to attract the spirits from the Jupiter Sephirot or Kabbalistic spheres.   It will also repel those spirits from the Mars sphere. Just like it diminishes iron in water it will diminish the spirits from Mars.

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 the myrtle tree should reduce mercury under the same lines of thinking.
