Familial Snakes of Divine Healing

With the proverbial boat missed as far as June is concerned, thankfully I finally managed to finish the small but difficult write up of the snake familiar ritual. For the last two months, numerous versions of this rite have been carried out, with gnosis delivered directly by Hecate and  my primary familiar.

The familiar that came to me through this ritual was bizarrely, as insinuated, my primary familiar. Through this work he was revealed to have an ancient serpentine origin that up to this point had been unknown to myself. This familiar has proven himself to be a master of shape changing, able to morph himself into a shape not too dissimilar to a lunar moth, which meant initial access to the serpentine currents was not in anyway assumed. He has been a great companion so far in the work, but is still somewhat mysterious to me despite the possession work and dream visitation! Even after such a long time of having contact with him in some form or another.

The work at the Covenant of Hecate retreat, whilst not my initial encounter with the Ophidian current, resulted in increased levels of direct contact with it. It is my belief that this for me was in no way coincidental – healing at the moment is an important focus on my journey on the Ivory Stellar Path. It has become necessary to balance and heal both myself, and others around me within my life as Hecate directs me to these works of light.  Not just Hecate it has to be said although she has been the primary instigator – Lucifer sacrificed his solstice night to direct me in the healing of someone very important to me which was an incredibly beautiful if heavy experience that unfortunately is bound by an oath of silence. I can say I feel in his debt – with this work completed, I feel another specifc and unexpected gate was unlocked and granted by both Hecate and Him.

I can feel the acceleration to working with his Stellar Pillar Gate on this path now – a step towards the completion of this stage and onwards to the Earthing works. This plus further works of healing are the immediate future and focus for myself.

Not all of this is via serpent current as mentioned, but it plays a vital part alongside work with the Gods themselves. I have also began, to see at times, echos of The Atlantean Devil Queen within my work. What part she has to play, and how I can approach the connection I have with her, is something that still remains another mystery to explore.

The detailed write up of how to work directly with one of the serpent familiars, is detailed in the linked PDF. This has been carried out within a group, and was very successful in bringing through the Ophidian current. Working with Hecate is ideal for this, but it has been successfully carried out with success with different calls involving Belial. Intuition suggests that it would be suitable for work with other gods linked to the Ophidian Current with adaptation, as many share the gifts to manipulate it. It is likely that a differing ‘flavour’ of the current will be delivered depending on the route into it – Hecate and Lucifers serpent familiars are likely to be more stellar in nature than the primal ones sent by Belial and the Great Serpent God, but this isn’t set in stone. Reality is more complicated than neat boxes. As mentioned in the document, I leave this up to expansion by the reader whilst recommending it is first accessed via Hecate as it was her who unlocks these gates. I stress that caution must be used here to a degree – the ritual is simple to perform, what is brought through is anything but and is very strong if accessed correctly. I truly feel this is a cure than could become a curse if abused.

The Familial Snakes of Divine Healing

I hope many people can put this to good use, not just for themselves but others! I have been astounded its effects on others around me, many of them having little exposure to this current. Longstanding physical, emotional and spiritual issues have been vastly improved in such little time. Again, it demonstrates the power of the eternal Witch Gods.

Ave Hecate Zonodrakontos!

The Prayer Book of Belial

Posted in Publications, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2016 by Sypheara

So, it was a long time coming, but my good friend Atilla Kabak has finally managed to finish an important work.  This book, titled the ‘The Prayer Book of Belial’,  was written in possession with the Lord of Lords across many months. Atilla originally got in contact with me through this blog, and it quickly became apparent that Belial had many things in store for him.. this book just part of the gnosis that Belial wants returned to the realm of man.

As such, i’m going to launch into this for those who are interested in works on this current, and thus must make clear that therefore I am not an unbiased source. That said I believe this book is an important addition to the current for reasons I am about to lay out.

The exterior of the hardcover copy of the book is a simple, sparse black casewrap without any adornment, or other artistic work or embellishment. This belies the dense, revelationary text that is held within its 164 pages. 

dsc_0369

The aim of the book is also deceptively simple: to bring the reader into direct contact with Belial and open up his gates within their soul and flesh.  Through the introductory sections of, ‘on inner path’,  ‘on prayers’, ‘on visions’, ‘on rites’, and on ‘on healing and curses’ the author lays out succinctly and without embellishment or trappings the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the path and how therefore the book can be successfully worked. In addition,  in the follow-up section’ a simple guide’, the author offers up information for absolute beginners of following his simple, instinct led approach.  Finally, the author details how the book was received in no less than four separate languages from Belial, and how it required significant translation to be understandable and decoded from the original ‘stream of consciousness’ which occurs during possession.

After this, the author begins the meat of the text – the Four Sets of Twenty Prayers / Devotionals dedicated to the Lord of Lords.  Each prayer opens a particular gate or set of gates within the soul, thus marking it as one of Belials own kin. The particular method for each set and prayer varies, but a general theme runs throughout each section. Each section is dominated by a particular seal, which encapsulates its powers. These prayers may be accompanied with the use of physical tools as part of trans-formative rites. From my reading of this book, as well as experiencing its activated power, I give now my best, entirely personal summation.

dsc_0367

The Call – This section is extremely initiatic, laying the ground work for further empowerment through the opening of seven sealed gates within the soul. A further nine gates are then opened through the use of Belials stones before it is seated and sealed with the prayers of the ‘Summonings To Soul and Body’ and ‘The Oath of Communion’, which unlocks the second path.

The seal of The Call is that of the red gem of Belial, dripping in blood, suspended above the flames.

The Communion – This section is the foundation of the bones of the work, as he or she who walks the path further explores and lays further foundations on what was released during The Call. Belial here seats himself into the very flesh, in return for the pacts made to him.

The seal of The Communion is the opposed phases of the moon, linked together via the ways of Belial. Above this, his eternal flame sparks and burns.

In Flames – This section sees the bones enfleshed by the aforementioned and foreshadowed burning fires of Belial. Through the works mentioned here with a special pentagram, both physical tool and spiritual self are ignited in the most literal of manners. The author in private correspondence detailed how this pentagram literally would physically ignite during this phase of development.  Here, the capabilities of the devotee for working with Belial and the Gods are greatly enhanced. Here, in this magickal transformation work is also carried out on the world soul itself as alongside the blessings, curses are delivered at those who would despoil the World Soul, and Belials flesh.

The seal of In Flames are six serpents, writhing forth from a coiling mass of flame and flesh, showing the emanation of power.

The Path – This final section is the seal upon the whole work. The practitioner demonstrates here the lessons learnt on the path, and completes the seating of the blessings and curses within the self through the prayers of the seven deaths and rebirths. Here any fear melts away, those who have successfully completed the path so far coming into a much deeper understanding and connection with the lord of lords. Through this section, the soul is opened fully to Belial becoming intimately connected with his own beyond even physical death.

The seal of The Path is that of the widdershins Ouroboros that encircles Belials pyramid of power.. the three flames symbolising not only the trident but the three thrones of Belial.. that which stands in Ghagiel, that which stands as the hidden throne of the Atlantean Depths, and that which lies at the centre of our own world, The Devils Throne.

These prayers as the reader can see, make this a good book for someone who wishes to assist with their self initiation into this current. It does so not by relying on description but creating and reinforcing a genuine connection. With Belial being vitally important within the Aeon Of Lucifer, and being a much maligned entity despite this, I believe this work is a great way for those devoted souls who wish to encounter him to do so.

dsc_0368

It is however, not a work or book I believe suited to general occultists. The pacts are clear in what they offer but also what they demand in return, which is complete soul devotion. Taking from, without offering back, on this path would be ill advised. However someone who wishes to connect firstly and primarily with Belial might be able to take and work with it effectively to learn much about this great witch god.

For those already of the current, this book offers powerful ways of greatly strengthening the subtle bodies and soul, and reveals the creation of unique powerful working tools if the lines are read between effectively. It also adds another powerful means for devotional works.

The only drawback to the book I see is the editing. Due to being a self published book, and the work not being in the native language of the writer, there are numerous errors in parts of the texts beginning sections. Whilst the difficulty in translating the calls in possession is easily understood, I believe that the beginning sections could have benefited from an additional editing pass. However given the immense value of the work on hand, I believe these can be easily overlooked. The words and sigils here contain real spirit and power. It is also understandable that Atilla wanted to stay clear of the somewhat shark infested waters of modern day occult publishers, where the waters can sometimes be muddy.

The book is far as I am aware, not in limited order – it’s only limit being the obviously small number of people who will wish to work with such demanding material. The book can be purchased from Lulu or Amazon, at the following links:

Lulu

Amazon

The work itself does not come pre-consecrated as a gateway. From receiving it, part of me believes this is for a good reason.

As such, I offer a simple way to those who receive it that was given in intuition by Belial to me to self consecrate it. First, the book is to be opened. The first sigil of the The Call is to be blooded in Belials name, so that the entire gem is inflamed in red. This is to be followed by blooding the last sigil of the The Path in Belials name, covering the flames and the tip of the pyramid. A prepared sigil of Belial on paper coated with a dried, liquid libation, is to be blooded and placed face up on the front of the closed book. Atop this, a consecrated candle holder is to be placed. A candle, blessed in  Belials name is placed upon the top of the sigil and book and is lit. Once the candle has burned down, the book is activated via the Pact of the Devoted Blood. The candle, before being burned can also optionally be strengthened by being dressed in patchouli oil, and Belials name and sigil being carved into its sides.

On this note, further work with the book can be carried out – I would thoroughly recommend that each prayer working the sigil below the prayer is adequately blooded. Thus, the book itself becomes a powerful living tool through which Belial can be called forth and communed with.

I hope this has been an interesting look at this release. It is certainly an exciting time within the current as more is brought forth, by the Gods and their devotees. Going forward on a side note, I hope to improve the quality of camera images as my current set up is very inadequate. This however takes a second seat to my current project, which is working and preparing the bones here of one of the deceased familiars.

Blessings and Curses: Samhain

Posted in Necromancy, Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2016 by Sypheara

I would just like to take a small moment to wish everyone who follows the blog and my work a productive and blessed Samhain season.

I love this time of year.. all the way up to the winter solstice the energy is perfect for all sorts of interesting workings. Its great to be able to share these with others, and this years group Samhain rite by a friend of mine was spectacularly well executed. It was very powerful rite, tapping into the ophidian currents to expertly honour the dead.

That said, as regards to my own workings, this years Samhain rite was a little different than expected. It’s been a relatively difficult time here for numerous personal reasons, in regards to both illness and death. All on top of attempting to integrate the gnosis coming through from the awakened gates.

Recently, a horrible occurrence happened that required a powerful protective, and malefic rite to rectify the extreme psychological harm brought about to one of my friends family members after they were attacked at knifepoint. So, alongside the usual offerings to the dead at this time of year, the rite was executed on the Sabbat night with this in mind, and was extremely powerful.

Into the body were called Hecate and Belial, as well as the Ivory Spider, to lend their aid and power. This power was directed towards the empowerment and consecration of a malefic and necromantic wand of control, command, and bane using the accumulated venoms of the path thus far.

After this, empowerment and protection was first given to the innocent victims using the existing wand of Lucifer, to ensure they were duly empowered and protected. Afterwords, the new malefic wand was used to impale, envenom, and then blast the malefactors before they were cast out from the circle into the northern quarter into the waiting teeth of Belial and his hosts.

dsc_0364Wand prior to its activation in ritual with associated venoms 

The wand was made from a single, dried out branch of holly that was acquired as a present from an earlier working.. an interesting tool that was given at the right time for the right purpose. I am not interested in Malefica in general.. anyone who knows me or who has followed the blog for anytime will have seen the lack of such material here. But this time it felt powerful, necessary, and part of demonstrating the power of the Path from Belial in my direction.

Unfortunately due to the nature of this work involving the specific use of the Ivory Spider and his venom conjoined with Belials, its unfortunately unsuitable to share the exact method of consecration for the wand here. However I detail the above to illustrate the other side of the coin of working with these entities.. the ability to defend oneself and ones friends and family, blood or spiritual, that comes with the territory.

In other news, a certain friend of mine has also recently completed a very interesting book.. a book that relates to possession work with Belial. He has poured an immense amount of time and effort into this text.. I hope to soon grab a copy to illustrate why I think its an important addition, albeit one that comes with a lot of caveats.

Thanks again for reading,

Ave Hecate,

Enlinking Familiars to Objects

Posted in Luciferianism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 13, 2015 by Sypheara

Finally, I have a draft of the Enlinking Familiar rite I am happy to release. Having gone through numerous edits, I believe it is now in a state that is correctly representative. It quickly became much larger and intricately detailed that I initially intended, in order to correctly and fully detail the process involved.

This marks the completion of the two familiar rites I initially set out to perform within my own, personal workings and to document. This entry details the means by which the Primary Familiar was initially encountered in its full, manifested form, and given a physical shell so it could be interacted with to carry out powerful external workings.

In this rite the method by which this was carried out is detailed. Whilst it is specifically written to pertain to the primary familiar, it can be abstracted easily to be applied to any familiar a witch needs to enlink. Note this is not a binding process but the creation of an active gateway! Once opened, it is a link that cannot be removed or destroyed without consequences for both familiar and practitioner. Note also this is written from the perspective entirely of someone working with Hecates energies.. it is only though her energies this particular rite can be successful.

In addition, the rite mentions briefly the wand and triangle of Arte. These are both necessary tools that need to be both acquired, and utilised effectively within the rite for it to be truly effective. It could be that these small entries form themselves  the basis of a basic, working tools entry that will be later detailed, but this has yet to be fully decided.

The Veiled Stellar Eye of Hecate

This rite contains some further elucidation on the Stellar Eyes of the Gods,and the role that Hecates specifically plays within this rite. It is through her Stellar Eye the power to link familiars in this particular way is carried out, the true forms of which only she herself can reveal to the witch. It also in its own way, acts as as a multifaceted and hidden key.  It also forms a part of a hidden and secret path to deeper mysteries within her realms, and can be utilized for a specific line of Ascent for those who she bestows this gift upon.

The resources section has been updated, and the write up can be found at the following link:

https://theluciferianrevolution.files.wordpress.com/2013/12/enlinkingobjectsexternalfamiliars4.pdf

My attention now turns to working on active gateways and much deeper, and occult work with the Trident Gods to properly begin the lightning path that leads across the Abyss. In addition, a working on the 21st with a local group has been scheduled to further raise and connect with the Stellar Energies, hopefully giving others a firsthand taste of this empowering current.

Ave Hecate,

Was reflecting on and came to the conclusion that a post was in order, considering the auspiciousness of the day.

My mundane situation has calmed down considerably, and I am (mostly) moved into my new place. Tonight, the Temple Room will be reactivated by a process involving the following. Whilst I do not have time to detail this process, it can be quickly lain out as follows for the interested:

  • The casting of the sphere of night.
  • Calling of the quarters.
  • Calls given composed of the both the Planetary , Stellar calls, and that of the Ephesian letters.
  • Ensorcelling of the powers of the sphere.
  • Invocation and Possession involving Hecate.
  • Opening of both sides of the Tree, light, then dark to balance the polarities.
  • The concentration of this energy into opening the new gateway within the new inner temple through blood work, sexual magick at the height of frenzy and excitation.

I wish everyone who is reading a blessed and productive Samhain…  may the torches of the Gods forever illuminate your path. I hope your workings tonight truly blow open the veils and reveal the gnosis that you seek.

Ave Hecate,

Ave Lucifer,

Ave Belial,

All Hail to the Witchgods this Night!

Welcoming the Ivory Spider

Posted in Luciferianism, Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames, Traditional Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2015 by Sypheara

The Gateway given by the Gods now stands successfully opened on the physical and spiritual planes. Directed by Belial and Lucifer over three separate rituals across an entire lunar cycle, the formula was given fully and the Stele of the Elemental Guardian and Guide constructed, carved deep into wood, inked in love, and filled with rivulets of blood in devotion.

This would be my first work in the medium of wood. However, even as I prepared the first lines, etching them deep into the surface of a birch end grain block, it became evident that it had been the correct choice. Each chiselled shape seemed to radiate power, the lines dancing across the vision. The process was kept simple. Using a basicc set of chisels, and a hammer, the outline was created and then enlarged to suit the icon given. Once completed, the lines were brought to life with a thin line of artist’s ink, which ran slowly throughout the prepared image.

The first ritual saw the Gate Sigil granted at the Temple Initiation pre-merged with the incredibly powerful Stellar Glyph to form the complete Gate. This symbol was blooded in the name of the Gods, with attention being given to its particular patron, as the work was commenced under the influence of the darkened New Moon.

In sexual magickal communion the Trident were called forth into the Flesh. With the invocational possessive state achieved, Belial took charge, merging with the Self. At the height of Sexual Communion, an explosion of Energy up and through the spine and from the Sigil occured, for a split second resulting in the loss of awareness. After recovering, the voice of Belial could be heard, confirming the validity of the formula and the priming of the Gate via blood and bone.With one final act prompted by him, subtle visions of the Gate on the other planes could be seen, its surface now glowing a powerful and radiant silver. Lines of blue and gold energy ran across its surface as it opened slowly to reveal a dark recess through which no light penetrated, confirming the success of this first stage of the work.

Gradually, from the darkness, a sigil danced forth of a moon being split in twain by numerous receding dancing rectangles. This vision, although clear and calm, grew frustrating and maddening as the shapes danced into inconceivably impossible shapes within the mind’s eye. Soon however, as I calmed myself down with Belial and Lucifers aid, a distinct shape came into focus. Of a large, moonlike eye surrounded by astrological symbols in a web like shape. This sigil burned brightly, and Lucifers energy became more intense.

As this experience settled, the initial rite was closed with the Gods thanked for their assistance. Gnosis was given, the Gods indicating that the new granted sigil was to be etched into the other side of the block, and opened in the similar manner to the first on the night of the next Full Moon.

Again calling the Trident forth in ritual, this time Lucifer took a much greater role, elevating his energies to match that of Belials. As the new sigil was blooded, the Lord of Thaumiels energies could be felt, slowly enveloping the self in a strong and powerful energy. In the possessed state, Lucifer made it clear that the sigil was in fact the sigil of the Elementary Guardian. He hinted at its vast power, and mandated it be unlocked in the same manner as the gate of Belial itself, using Belials physically bestown gifts merged with his own current. This was carried out as directed, resulting in the seal brimming with energy, seemingly coming alive to the eyes.Continued sexual meditation saw the gate in bilocation glow with an intense energy, the gate now filled with a strange luminescent light. This energy came in waves, vibrating from low and subtle to high and overwhelming. Similar to the visions in the first ritual, the gate swung open.

From the darkness beyond, a great, white writhing mass thrust forth without delay, a startlingly chthonic emanation contrasting greatly with the stellar current that had been up to that point powerfully delivered through the gate itself. It rapidly grew in size and mass, spilling outwards into the cave area, assembling itself into various forms as it did so.First, it assumed the form of a gigantic, furred white serpent, with piercing amber eyes. This form was not ‘pure’ snake, being also possessed of many writhing centipede like tentacled legs. This form quickly shifted fully into a centipede, and before the senses could even adjust, it had transformed into a gigantic, arachnid like entity. This visage first merged through the guise of a spider, before proceeding to that of a gigantic, pincerless white furred scorpion. Its form settled there, as gigantic, white wings burst forth from its back, yellow eye upon yellow eye covering their surface. These looked not dissimilar from bat wings, but unlike a bat’s, were covered in large, beautiful white feathers. Upon its head the entity bore a large azure crystal inset into its flesh. Beyond this, further along its back, its primary sigil was evidently marked upon its flesh. Like the gate, its entire being let off a startlingly powerful stellar current despite its appearance.

With the being having presented itself, and no warnings or feelings of insidious intent detected by myself or indicated by Lucifer and Belial, it was invited into the physical flesh to take part in the communion. It obliged readily, coming into the form.Even as it did so any clear vision of the cave itself dissolved, instead replaced with images of this beings aura being superimposed over my own form. I began to feel the spine beginning to curve as the energy levels heightened further. Suddenly, without any prior warning, a very intense vision of this entity stabbing one of its appendages deep into my stomach, continuing on up into the ribcage, filled my entire being. My physical, mental and spiritual form contracted reflexively as it deposited something within the soul body, and I began to thrash violently. This lasted for several, tense seconds, resulting in a total loss of bodily control. The pain suddenly ceased, and the presence of the entity was replaced by that of Belial, stepping in to moderate the flow of energy from the contact.

An inverted version of Ensouls Illustration (linked) depicts an entity similar to the Ivory Spider

At this point my awareness shifted back towards my physical form, and I could hear my own voice now, repeating an unknown mantra. A repeating pattern of four distinct words that seemed to resonate with the same pattern of the encountered entity. The entities presence could still be felt subtlety, and it began to communicate, first in images and then by voice. It confirmed the mantra was its words of power, and identified itself primarily with one of them, the final one, as its name. It referred to itself by a title, ‘The Ivory Spider’, and related its task as a Primary Guide, Protector and Pathfinder on the road to Middle Road Ascension, revealing stellar gnosis for assimilating both sides of the tree.

The second ritual was closed as the first. Over the proceeding two weeks further gnosis and communication was had with the entity outside of any active ritual workings. This consisted of contact not just with the entity but information released via the injected venoms themselves. Flashes and sigils depicting this process were released clearly to the conscious mind. The venoms could be seen congealing around the soul, wrapping around and infusing deep into its makeup.

A third ritual to settle the process was requested via the entity. To fully create the finished gate, the entity instructed that the four words of power, including the word of its primary name, were to be written around the edge of the block in a widdershins fashion in the Theban alphabet, each word being blooded individually and invoked from within the constructed circle. From this, as communion was taken at the level of the flesh, the Ivory Spider disclosed more.

Initially this was knowledge pertaining to the middle pillar, and the uniting of both life and death on a Stellar Path of Ascent. The entity made clear the extent of neglect of the Paths of the Stars by Man in the current age, detailing how now few travel or attempt to earth Stellar Currents, compared to ages in our past that could be considered relatively recent. The entity described itself as a pathfinder and guide along these pathways, describing how it also maintains and spins new connections.

Of most importance, the entity gave advice to finish existing, grounding works, before work with Belial and Lucifer himself should be undertaken, under Hecate and its own watchful eye, to initiate the beginnings of these powerful soul transmutative rites.

The entity was not only supportive, but confirmed planned work with granting the primary familiar a body was of importance; The entity heavily indicated that this will be of great importance in providing a physical grounding, assisting greatly in the forthcoming rites which channel these stellar currents. It is to be noted here the importance of a physical anchoring point. This fact is one that is often overlooked, even though it is of utmost importance to the work. Their successful construction is one that becomes mirrored through every realm when worked correctly. The entity in its own words was adamant that the ‘triad’ of the gateway stele, as well as both familiars was complete before any further work commenced on the path to ensure correct balance in the self. Whether integral to the work itself or simply a personal step needing completed before the new path is walked was not disclosed.

With discourse and communion finished, the entity withdrew, and the completed Stele of the Ascending Gateway of Belial and Lucifer was wrapped in black silk, tied with red cord, and placed into the guarding and waiting hands of the empowered doll familiar.

It is at this point an honest word must be said. These works will be powerful, and due to their innate nature, contain sensitive information and not everything can be disclosed immediately onto the blog. As such what can be shared will need to be limited until this part of the path is walked to its conclusion, the gnosis assimilated, and the Watchers give license for it to be disclosed in detail.

As always however, as much as can be shared openly will be made available via the blog, so the path can be illustrated as a guide to others.

Of Temple Initiation and Screaming at the Moon

Posted in Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2015 by Sypheara

It felt like a trip I had to make.

During personal workings at her altar, Hecate made it known that the invitation was open – and I felt strongly pulled to the idea of travelling to the temple where her currents have been successfully, powerfully and permanently rooted into Belials flesh.

It felt like the final seal on all of the dedications and initiatory workings. Hecate instructed that it would facilitate the removal of a certain blockage I had been facing – allowing the currents of all four Trident Gods to flow through and encompass my entire being –restructuring the soul; propelling me to a whole new level of work. The request was made to the Gatekeeper of Her Mother Temple to ensure that the initiation was appropriate and accepted. With confirmation from both Gatekeeper and Hecate, I made the necessary arrangements for this pilgrimage.

Three weeks ago, I found myself walking up steep, stone steps to the Temple of the Four Pillars itself, deep within the Spanish Mountains. Accompanied by the Gatekeeper, I was about to undergo the powerful initiation held within the heart of this sacred place.

The Temple of The Four Pillars of Fire is aptly named. A large stone circular structure – the womb of the Goddess – is surrounded by four smaller stone circles, one for each of the Trident Gods, which are sunken into the ground. Sigils of the Arte adorn the temple’s aging stone walls, as sacrificial bones hang from branches above the archways – the entrances to each Pillar of Flame.

The Temple of Four Pillars of Fire

Due to the intensely personal nature of the rite, as well as ensuring the protection and due respect in regards to the Temple and its Gatekeeper, what can be shared is limited. Below I detail some of the ritual experience that occurred during this powerful initiation.

The rite began with entrance to the Womb of Hecate, facilitated through the western gate where bones hung low from the trees.

In the heart of the central vortex the Four Pillars of Fire were activated by its Gatekeeper, their powerful magical force swirling around temple circumference before entering the centre circle – the womb of Hecate.

With power vibrated through subtle and flesh incarnate bodies and blood offerings given upon temple seals, inner gateways were opened in the names of the Trident Gods, Demon Princes, Tassatowah and Temple Guardians. These beings did not just unite their power within the temple, but also within my own flesh and soul. The vortex quickened whilst we stood facing the Northern Wall of Belial, a stone face covered in his sigils, and the dominating form of the fetish lord, standing at the centre of the womb as its axis. It was here that the first pledges were made. As their power flowed into my being from each quadrant, oaths were taken to follow the Gods beyond the expiry of physical flesh.

I gave up my silver pentacle, an item of much sentimental value, tying it to the Fetish Lord as a gift. The Fetish Lord then became the focus of the rite, the possessed skull – dedicated as the Godhead of Lucifer – already bore offerings of my blood. When my ritual gift was placed upon the Fetish, the skull was again blooded.

At this point, kneeling before the Gods, sacrifice was given – the offering was made by the Gatekeeper. This sacred act of sacrifice granted to the Witch Gods sealed the pact, reifying their vast energy into my soul. The entire process intensified as the Gatekeeper drew the Mark of the Serpentine Trident upon my brow. As blood ran down my face, a crushing blackness flooded into my being. This was more powerful than anything I had ever previously experienced. The power rose rapidly, released from the sacrifice, into my being and up through the Fetish Lord. As the black energy transmuted within my being in a rapid alchemical process, I felt my soul energy becoming a pure stellar current – carried on the ascending spirit that was released from the sacrificial offering. A current of pure flame, ripped through my body – not pain but an intensely pleasurable feeling which filled my entire being with pure joy; an elation akin to the orgasm of the soul.

When this overwhelming energy eventually settled, yet another journey was undertaken to one of the Pillars of Flame, to call Hecate in Godform assumption. While full possession was not achieved, Hecate made her presence known in a flash of energy, soothing my simmering soul energy as further invocations were made. Upon completion, when it felt time to return to the womb of Hecate, I was presented with the sacrificial bone of Belial. I was then informed that this amulet would unlock pathways and Dragon Lines that led to the heart of the Earth.

From a seated position I blooded the bone and closed my eyes. My vision was filled with swirling reptilian eyes. Belial was immediately present. The eyes danced across my field of perception, turning, swirling, opening and blinking in rapid succession. Belial spoke, his voice clear and authoritative, giving direct and powerful messages. He asked why I resisted him. I replied that it was not intentional, and asked for his guidance on the path. He related that my destination was not, as was customary with some Primal Craft intiations, to be the Devil’s Throne. Now was not my time for that particular journey, instead I was instructed to follow Belial into the depths.

After being dragged through the largest of the reptilian eyes I found myself falling through dark tunnels which, spiralling downwards, eventually gave way to damp earth and stone cavern structures which opened into a large, black cave. A powerful light emanated from an opening in the roof, bathing everything in a brilliant, golden light.

A figure wearing armour and a sword, manifested before me. The entity wore a green cloak and hood, which obscured its face, and had two gigantic white feather wings protruding from its back. The being was authoritative but seemed benevolent. With his sword he opened or created a vortex. The ground fell away to reveal a dark lake. Light poured in from a collapsed ceiling, but the source was not sunlight. It felt like we were tens of kilometres below what could be described as the surface, that somehow the light was being generated by a type of photo-luminescence. Around the rim sat eight stone skulls, water poured from their mouths feeding the dark lake below.

Dark Lake – Photographer unknown

At the centre of the lake lay a circular stone platform, connected a far wall by a stone walk way where a huge gabbro door was inset into similarly dark walls. At this point my body seemed composed of solid white flame. A huge sigil adorned the door. The glyph vibrated powerfully. It was illuminated by green, blue and golden white energies like dancing flames. I reached out to touch the glyph, but as I did so, I heard Belial whisper something unintelligible, like snake speech, and the vision dissolved; returning me to the ordinary blackness of closed eyes. I immediately recorded the sigil from the doorway and, exhausted, thanked Belial for his guidance. The rite was closed in love and honour. An offering of brandy was left for the Gods as an additional token of respect, and then we headed down from the mountain.

Over the coming days Hecate, in possession work, revealed the purpose of the gateway sigil. Using formula given during initiation it was carved in wood and opened in blood, unlocking its seals and pathways for further exploration. This process releases a powerful Elemental Familiar.

In later work this gate was successful merged with the Stellar Glyph of Lucifer – granted unto all who place their names in Hecate’s Book of Souls during initiation at the Mother Temple. A second seal was given and the mysteries further revealed. More work is to be undertaken, this time on the full moon, to seat the stellar currents that also flow into through these chthonic paths revealed upon this ongoing journey.
