Viral Catastrophe in the Age of Becoming

Posted in The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2020 by Sypheara

I’ve had multiple people message me in regards to the truly awful pandemic that is sweeping the world right now, wondering how we are here and how this affects work going forward.

I’d just like to first say thank you to everyone who got in touch – right now, we are fine, and have put in place contingency plans to protect the temples written work as well as all magickal relics and gateways. This was spurred after divination with the powers that be revealed that unfortunately things will get inevitably worse before they get in any way better. A very surreal situation, but one we thankfully saw coming and began preparing for back in January.

The tipping point was reached and these plans have taken the form of moving everything of true vital importance to a remoter location whilst leaving magickal and physical defences at the old inner temple location. We will be working out of this new location for the foreseeable future. This is under direct advisement of the spirits of the Arte that demanded urgent and swift action from ourselves to ride out the coming storm.

We are also stocked up on food, water, and required means to defend ourselves. Unfortunately the lockdowns and other measures will likely restrict larger scale magickal workings with the Dragons. This is down to the fact that these workings require outer gateways to be penetrated in certain physical locations to be truly effective.  Plans are in place to try and pursue these were possible, whilst sticking to the lockdown regulations for everyone’s safety and benefit.

In regards to the pandemic itself, I have heard really two camps try to explain the event. Both while containing elements of the truth, come to wrong conclusions. One maintains that there is no human or spiritual culpability – that viruses just happen and are intrinsic to nature. The second state that this is a God sent plague, echoing fire and brimstone mentality from ages thankfully gone by.

The reality is this is neither God sent, nor simply ‘bad luck’. This event is in reality a backlash from an abused and poisoned world soul – the virus itself spawned as the result of ridiculous levels of cruelty and uncleanliness – the accepted location generally being a Chinese wet market with awful conditions. This is a curse we have lain upon ourselves due to our races poor and ill judged use of the many boons the Gods have granted us – and they have simply allowed us to feel our own backlash of the collective inaction to address such issues. The Gods will allow us to reap what we ourselves have sown as the system self corrects for our colossal failures – this is not THE apocalypse, but rather a dangerous existential crisis we have forced upon ourselves due to terrible behaviour and spiritual erosion.

Such backlash occurrences are going to be common post 2012, as we enter the Aeon of Lucifer fully. Only by addressing these issues collectively can we halt the increase in strength, duration and frequency of these events.  This is the foreshock of a much larger quake, that can only be addressed by changing our ways of life on a mass scale. This will involve making the correct physical, mental and spiritual changes required to rebalance the world soul and avert disaster.

Due to the failure of an authoritarian government to effectively contain this outbreak, thanks to a colossal cover up in its early stages, all we can do is ride out the storm. Many innocent people will likely be killed in the ‘crossfire’. The massive majority, in fact. I pray that Hecate and the Gods look upon kindly those souls who cross over, and and shepherd them to where they need to be and relieve their suffering and those they inevitably leave behind.

To all those out there on the path, now would be a good time to turn inward when it comes to your spirituality. We might be stuck inside, but that is time to deepen our connections and do the inner work required in this period of nigredo. We can use this as an almost alchemical time to polish off areas of that practice where we were otherwise deficient and search for our own meaning and calling in this troubling time, whilst strengthening our connection with the powers of the path.

For those of us who don’t have that luxury due to working in essential services, firstly I’d like to thank you for your efforts in the greater community. I pray that our mother wraps her arms of protection around you, and also that she opens the eyes of all to appreciate the work you do. For to safeguard innocent lives is incredibly invaluable – a virus does not discriminate after all. At this time may your path grant you the strength to persevere, and endure.

I end this post with an invocation that was utilised in the Imbolc rite I performed this year for the local pagan group – at this time of Ostara celebration in the older calendar (which runs around seven days after the actual equinoxes), I feel it is just as appropriate to reiterate. The text is from a rite, where raised energy is earthed into the Dragonlines to quicken the great serpent. I offer it as both blessing, and curse, as is appropriate. Stay safe and well all.

Leviathan: Sea Dragon Rising

Posted in Stellar Gnosis, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2019 by Sypheara

It’s been just over three and a half weeks now since me and the new initiate set off with one goal in mind. The raising up, and working with Leviathan. This mighty sea dragon has a rich and interesting history. The name Leviathan (לִוְיָתָן – ‘Livyatan’) literally translated from Hebrew apparently has the meaning of ‘wreathed, twisted in folds’. This is an excellent description of this great creature, as we will go on to see. This is a direct continuation of an older root name derived from the Amorites, who had an identical sea serpent within their teachings who was known as Lôtān. The belief in great dragons plays into the motif of the Chaoskampf,  which occurs again and again in cultures world wide. I leave the mythological / legendary information to be passed on by those far more knowledgeable than myself. Here, I will concentrate on a very personal account of working with this entity.

The Destruction of Leviathan by Gustave Doré

The approach and understanding of Leviathan within Trident Witchcraft has only barely been explored. So for our own meeting with the Great Dragon, to say I undertook the operation with anything but great trepidation would be a complete lie. If one believes as trident witches do in the actual existences of these entities, then meeting face to face with an entity with the power to create walls of broiling water and drown one without the slightest compunction should be one approached with utmost caution. Doubly so when the intention of that rite is to walk into an open vortex within the very element that makes up the Great Dragons body.

We arrived on the chosen beach earlier in the day of the full moon, at high tide in order to observe the seas motion. There could be absolutely no complacency here – the last thing we wanted to do is underestimate the power of the ocean. This was just one beach of several we had inspected, but this one seemed relatively ideal. A small spit of land jutted out into the water, protected from the full force of the tall 18 foot waves by a wave cut platform. It was here we decided the rite would be conducted. The energy of the place felt extremely raw and elemental, but right. Despite the weather being customarily foul, one cannot expect sunshine and rainbows in November on this bleak but beautiful coast, we decided to go ahead with the ritual at around 11 pm.

We waited until close to that time, and set off as warmly wrapped up as we could. The beach wasn’t too far from where we were staying – but far enough it would take a least a reasonable amount of time to get there in the dark. We took the necessary equipment – the stellar amulet  of Lucifer, a small obsidian keystone empowered in Surgats energies, the stave and a small kerosene lamp being the primary but not only tools of the work.

One of the markers was still there – a dead and decaying seal a reminder of the primal power of the ocean. We passed it and found the spot, that perfect little piece of land that jutted out bordered on three sides by the sea. The ritual began as the water begin to come into the bay, under the beautifully clear starlight. Orion hung majestically in the sky, the raw power of Betelgeuse evident as it hung like a jewel some seven hundred light years away. It felt as if the entirety of the heavens rotated around the ritual point, for that brief moment revolving around the axiom of the crossroads we were to open. The omens seemed good and the wind had calmed, so we decided to proceed.

The circle itself was anchored utilising the kerosene lamp, and the area prepared for the ritual with the stave. To digress slightly, the fluid nature of water means a static circle is insufficient for working with this element in many cases. Invocational possession was affected to triformus level, and Hecate, Lucifer and Belial all evoked to the circle edge. Working with Surgat, the required formulation on the edge of the circle was carried out. Next,the obsidian stone was blooded liberally to act as the stellar key to enact the necessary transition safely.

With the temple initiate of the black degree anchoring the working with the help of an attendant celestial entity sent by the Gods as a fifth pillar of the work, I walked to the waters edge and carried out the final evocation of Leviathan. The act of casting the obsidian stone into the onrushing waters, was the sign the call itself was complete. I waited until the moment felt right and walked into the freezing waters at the point of manifestation of the vortex. The serene moment was suddenly shattered by an immediate on rush of pure power, that was akin to being electrocuted. My entire body went rigid in the water as it felt like powerful shocks ran rampant throughout my body. I was unable to move for what felt around five minutes as the serpent held me in its grip. At this moment its serpentine energy flooded me and I got a glimpse of Leviathan itself. This flickered between two forms. The first was a large silver scaled sea serpent with vestigial wings, of such pure stellar beauty that it is difficult to describe with words. The second appeared as a gigantic deep sea creature, looking similar to a eel-like version of a dragonfish, complete with distended jaws and bio-luminescent skin. It’s body was arrayed with a series of eyes that ran the length of it’s body. These two forms overlaid each other and switched rapidly like an flickering old television screen tuned to conflicting channels for around ten or so seconds.

Leviathan, artist unknown

This vision calmed and I felt Leviathans energy moving within me. The possession had come on quickly and suddenly, and in the powerful hold of it I was driven to a fresh sacrificial offering of blood. As it spilled into the water, I was compelled to partake of it directly. Leviathan imparted to me via impression that drinking some of this blood during this stage of the work was a seal upon the possession itself, the snake eating itself to become whole. As I began to assimilate the energies of this union, it calmed to a more subtle level. I saw flashes of the seals actually breaking, and a new mark being placed upon the subtle body.

I let the experience slowly subside until Leviathan let me know the work was complete. He withdrew quite rapidly, almost as quickly as the possession arrived. The way in which he made clear the rite was over wasn’t so much as done with spoken word but instead something indicated by ‘psychic impression’. There was no voice but almost a feeling that formed almost visible words in the minds eye with their forcefulness. ‘Your work is complete, and your offering received. Now leave this place, lest you be devoured by my waves. For my sea yields not for any man who stands foolishly in it’s way.’  This repeated in my mind – inescapable, raw, forceful and pressing. I returned quickly to the circle and with the invaluable help of the initiate closed up the rite quickly and effectively as demanded by Leviathan. We left the beach quickly and headed back to immediately get warm and recover from the experience.

The aftermath was one of quite honestly, serious exhaustion. The ritual had the effect of stressing the physical and astral bodies after its performance which has meant I’ve had to rest up considerably for the last few weeks. This is the less ‘glamorous’ side to this form of possession work. This working also capped a period of very intense rituals, and was by far the the strongest, meaning I was pushed to my current limit in this timeframe. In the time since, I have had a strong visitation from Leviathan via the lunar gates indicating that one full lunar cycle later, the gnosis could be extracted in full re the seal granted to me for full recording in the magickal records that are kept here. That work is to be done tonight via dream work, and tomorrow as follow up work and proper documentation of what is sent as energy allows.

The observant will have noticed I have only given very general formula for the working above. That is because this ritual is dangerously close to a circle breaking rite and involves working within active vortices – both of which could go very wrong if not approached right. Those who are not properly initiated run extreme risk in these workings, and even those properly prepared can have quite serious issues integrating the risen energies. As such I do have to put a sensible caution out there to anyone expecting to work with him in this identical way. It is also note to caution that similar to Surgat, he is difficult to work with and not particularly fond of our kind, especially due to current circumstances.

From here on out I’ll be focusing on the initiates training and growth as well as preparing for the following rites with the other great dragons. I hope to complete the work of the dragons, and Lucifer and Belial’s Stellar Gates by the end of 2020, gods willing. This is ambitious but achievable. I feel it is time to get onto the workings of the stellar whirlpools and the planetary gates themselves. As until this work is done, the stellar temple cannot be formed.

I hope this has been an interesting introduction to Leviathan, albeit one that I feel barely does this great entity justice. I feel this is just the start of a long working relationship with this spirit, and a healing / empowering of my own inner / outer landscapes for whats to come.

To you who encircles the Earth,
Oh great dragon of Chaos,
Beautiful radiant serpent of Light,
Dark nebulous serpent of Dark,
O Great and Terrible Ophidian One,
In Love and Honour we call to you now,
To he who nurtured us,
To he who strengthened us,
To he who sent us forth,
Wrapped in the scales of Young Creation,
In Primal Times forgotten by Man,
We give to thee our eternal thanks and devotion,
We ask of you now,
Send us your strength, 
To fortify our bodies,
To ready our minds,
To prepare our Souls,
To do what needs to be done,
In the Aeon of Lucifer,
In restoration, hope.
In destruction, damnation.
Let the judgement of the gods be delivered,
By the guardian of the waters
Of She who came First.

Samhain Blessings: Success in the Black Degree

Posted in Necromancy, Paganism, Stellar Gnosis, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2019 by Sypheara

A very quick and short entry from myself, just to wish everyone a good Samhain period – the day itself might have passed, but here we will be extending workings well up to the 11th (and likely a few days beyond!). This includes that nice little working on the coast with Leviathan, which i’m expecting will be carried out in lovely freezing and raining conditions. A pretty usual state of affairs in this rather bleak but beautiful place. The plan is to carry that out sometime in the next two weeks.

To update on the former post – it is with great relish I can report that the initiation of the first candidate of the inner temple here went extremely well. Lucifer was impressed with the gifts offered and the faith in which the ordeal was faced and past. As such, the groundwork for the Stellar Temple I want to build metaphorically and literally in the years to come, is properly started. It will take several years minimum before the praxis is in place, probably longer before I can even consider securing a physical temple site due to the time and monetary costs involved. So a very long term project to make explicitly clear, but one I look forward to building in partnership with the new apprentice, Hecate and their own path willing.

Outside of this some strong possession work with Hecate commenced last night on the 1st to celebrate both the blessed, as well the dark and forgotten dead.

This group working was led by a good friend of mine, who has many years working with our Goddess. She doesn’t work in Trident Witchcraft but in another strain of Hekatian Witchcraft, but the energies raised are extremely similar for obvious reasons. Use of Ophidian speech allowed for the spirits we intended to contact to raise powerfully but also safely into the ritual space. Particular attention was given to those accused of being witches in the past, especially in regards to a particular local group which were accused and hanged based on absolutely marginal shreds of evidence in the 17th Century. Only three of these individuals could have been referred to as witches, the rest included a businessman and at least one, ironically, pious Christian.  Their murder has left them in a state of limbo, not helped by years of mundane interference at their unmarked burial site. To be able to give them some solace, by sharing offering and remembering the story of their heinous murder, feels like at least an attempt to address a powerful and long standing injustice. Other personal contact with the dead was made, but these experiences remain solely for the group attending and will not be shared here as is proper.

Overall it was a powerful rite to share with others, and culminated for me in an almost full drawing in of the black goddess which i won’t readily forget. Whilst these are common for me with Lucifer, they are much more uncommon with the dark mother to that full bodied extent, and are thus enjoyed thoroughly when experienced.

With that said, back to it, I hope its been a great time for everyone, and many blessings in your works ahead.

Ave the Blessed Dead,
On these dark Samhain nights,
Those souls who have come before,
Who light the way with their torches,
We give to you our praise and love,
In the name of the Dark Mother,

And with heartfelt wishes,
Peace to the Dark Dead,
Those lost and forlorn,
Lie forgotten no more
Be fulfilled and at rest,
Sated and Soothed,
In the Black Queens Arms

Of Rising Flames: The Macrocosmic Apocalypse of Man

Posted in Publications, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2019 by Sypheara

October is shaping up to be a very interesting month.

Work with Surgat on the Hunters Moon has revealed the necessary Dragon Gates for accessing Leviathans powers upon the shores of the sea this coming Samhain, and this paves the work of two further workings with the great dragons to correctly open the correct stellar pathways. It is not without some trepidation that this new work is embarked upon – it seems to be some of the strongest workings up to this point. I must now undertake these in direct contact with the elements outside of much of the formal ceremonial ritual trappings I have gotten used to up to this point in my work.

Nevertheless its one I hope to face head on and receive the correct empowerments in response, and have made the formal pact with Surgat to pursue such in full knowledge of what must be done and endured.

In addition to this, I will be performing in the temple space the first initiation into the current of a new devotee. Whilst not a full temple initiation, for the gates for that are yet to be lain down, this is nevertheless an important introduction to the current for them. Hecate and Lucifer have made it very clear this individual is to receive the empowerments of the Gates that have been opened here thus far, and have directed the formation of an initiation rite to that effect. I hope that this is the first foundations of the stellar temple – itself still likely many years from formation – that will be set down.  It is now for the hard work between myself and this other devotee to see how this is to develop.

Outside of the above, I also had the excellent opportunity to read a rather stunning essay by a fellow devotee, who originally shared it in the primal craft facebook group. This essay, titled ‘The Macrocosmic Apocalypse of Man’ details the roles played by the Witchgods, as indicated by the Goddess Sepheranz in the current global transformation of The Age of Lucifer. This is an excellent introduction to those involved in the current who might not have touched on or explored this gnosis, whilst also explaining it simply for those who are outside of the current in a digestible but also inspiring manner. I contacted the author, who wishes to be identified as Ryan SK, to ask if he would allow me to kindly share his work on the blog. He accepted, and I thought that the time around the Hunters Moon would be the perfect time to share this beautiful work.

The essay can be accessed below via clicking the title link and contains the following sections; It can also be found in the resources section of the blog.

The Macrocosmic Apocalypse of Man

I. Introduction

II. THE UNION OF HECATE AND LUCIFER TO USHER IN NASCENT COSMIC ENERGIES 

III. SEPHERANZ AS THE APOCALYPTIC DAUGHTER OF FLAME 

IV. THE UNION OF SEPHERANZ AND BELIAL AND RETURN OF THE ATLANTEAN CURRENT

With that I wish everyone a beautiful waning moon period up until the arrival of our most blessed of sabbats and the turning of a new cycle at Samhain. May it be a productive one bringing you all the blessings and empowerments of the Gods as befits your own path.

In Love and In Honour,
In the Name of She Who Came First,

Beauty in Singularity: The Face of Messier 87

Posted in The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 10, 2019 by Sypheara

Today marks a ground breaking development in the field of Astrophysics. For the first time, scientists have managed to get a hold of the first picture of a black hole. This marks a great step forward in our study of these great stellar constructs, and so far confirms our understanding of general relativity. Going forward observations will, hopefully, point the way towards unifying two of the underpinnings of modern physics which currently stand somewhat in opposition. More on that angle here.

The black hole imaged is that at the centre of the Messier 87 galaxy. Described as a ‘complete monster’ by some, it is unfathomably large. Estimates have ranged from (3.5 ± 0.8) to (6.6 ± 0.4) × 109 solar masses, with a measurement of 7.22+0.34 −0.40×109 solar masses being obtained in 2016. This mass is one of the highest known for a supermassive black hole. A rotating disk of ionized gas surrounds the black hole, and is roughly perpendicular to the relativistic jet. This disk rotates at a velocity of up to 1,000 km/s, and spans a diameter of 0.39 light years. M87* as it is known, swallows an entire solar mass every ten years – equivalent to 90 earths in a single day.

The photograph from the recent work is below which shows the event horizon itself. The picture immediately after it, demonstrates the jet emitting from the M87 galaxy itself – which is the bright glow of the condensed stars which make up its elliptical shape.

Image of the supermassive black hole M87* – Event Horizon Telescope

Photograph of the relativistic jet generated by M87* – NASA

The EHT has also been attempting to take pictures of our galaxies heart Sagittarius A*, itself located in Sagittarius Alpha, a very interesting part of space. Soon we will get a picture of our own parent supermassive black hole, which has driven stellar evolution likely for over 13.2 billion years.

For those who know little about black holes, physically they are extreme concentrations of matter – so intense they bend literal space time in their vicinity. So intense that at their core, the curve of space time becomes infinite in what is known as a singularity, and all known laws of physics break apart under the extreme conditions.

So crazy are these predictions that alot of interesting theories abound – some believe that black holes allow travel to other universes, effectively acting as wormholes – others positing that collapsing black holes themselves create new universes and it was such a process that formed our own.

One is probably thinking at this point what this has to do with the Primal Current. In my own approach to Primal Current, these objects are nothing short than some of the strongest stellar portals – that belong to the Lord of the Dark Star.

The Lord of the Dark Star is the gatekeeper of the Throne of Hecate, and an immensely powerful stellar being that holds the keys to intense stellar gnosis. As a spirit he is quite aloof and difficult to reach for many people – mainly reachable through Hecate when the time is right and he chooses to reveal himself. Detailed initially in the Red King by Mark Alan Smith, he makes numerous further appearances across Marks work. With this day being so important, I felt it would be great to therefore share some of the stellar gnosis that was obtained in the form of the following invocation and voces magickae sent forth with working with him closely alongside Lucifer. I’m not sure if i’ve published these before publicly, but either way I felt today was a time to post them.

Caduceus of the Lord of the Dark Star – The Red King, Mark Alan Smith

Call to the Lord of The Dark Star

‘LU-THAY-CI-EL, ASH-TE-RAY x9
Through the Eye of the Great Dragon,
In Knowledge and Power I call to you,
Lord of the Sacred Stellar Gateway,
That which lies beyond Sagittarius Alpha itself!
Crown Prince of the Endless Void,
Child of Hecate and Lucifer,

Great Guardian to the Throne of the Great Goddess,
He whose Name is spoken only in hushed whispers,
In words half remembered by the Race of Man,
Open the Way to your Swirling Vortex,
Envelop me in your Essence,
Within The Crown of the Axis Mundi of the All,
Revealing the Pathways to Dimensions,
Outside the Realms of Finite Time and Space,
Your Eternal Way now opened,
Paid for in Witchblood and in Love,
In Hecates Name’
LU-THAY-CI-EL, ASH-TE-RAY x9′

The above invocational call should be done whilst in a fully cast circle, with the trees fully opened, utilising Hecates Eye (in turn created from an orb of solid obsidian). This is the perfect start to devotional work with him – in additional, the sigil given may be marked in wood, itself painted black, in gold.

The LU-THAY-CI-EL, ASH-TE-RAY is a call given by this entity alongside Lucifer to intensify and quicken stellar currents. It can be used in conjunction with the above invocation as mantra to empower the devotional rite. It can also be used for other select purposes – that at some point I hope to detail in print far, far down the line.

My first meeting with this entity was of being suspended on a stone platform, in the blackness of space, with the form of Sagittarius A* burning brightly behind it. I was surrounded by some kind of energetic shield, safe from the intense waves of radiation which licked its edges, in turn forming fabulous aurorae. The Lord of the Dark Star extruded into the shield from the event horizon itself, descending several manifested stone steps. He appeared as an immensely powerful winged humanoid form, possessing a canine head, reminiscent of drawings and paintings of the god Anubis. The energy that washed over me from from him was an intense fuschian colour of such vibrancy it was breathtaking. It was here he gave his initial empowerment, something I will always be eternally grateful for.

Ever since, the winter solstice and dark moons have taken a special meaning as perfect nights for working with him as well as other stellar entities that are otherwise drowned out every month by moonlight. These are perfect nights to work with the stellar spirits, for obvious practical reasons.

To end this relatively short but hopefully interesting piece, I’ll simply add that we live in a time now where our knowledge of the physical stellar makeup is far improved, and that it befits us to to work with them based on this. Just as the ancients based their stellar work on actual observation and direct contact with these entities, so should we, rather than relying on debased systems that have been hacked and chopped together over the last 200 years, themselves based on valuable but flawed medieval century grimoires.

For those who are wanting to learn more about stellar magic – start with astronomy. Build up your knowledge of the stars themselves, and of the stellar classifications and coordinate systems. This can seem tedious at first but it is a genuine base – even a very amateur understanding will put you light years (pun intended) in front of those who work outdated methods without understanding the actual, physical realities around us. Your magickal work will simply become much more effective and new avenues will open to you. Of special interest would be examining stellar classification, to better know the types of stars in our sky.

For those new entirely to astronomy and stellar, or even planetary magick, the following books work as good launching points with the above kept firmly in mind.  There is plenty more but these are my current favourites I can personally recommend. It is important to know where to go from to remain earthed in some manner in this vast avenue of exploration.

The Summer Solstice: The Blessing of Lucifer

Posted in The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2018 by Sypheara

I would like to simply make a short post to wish everyone a beautiful and productive summer solstice on this wonderful sabbat night.

I have enjoyed it in the traditional sense, spending time with some great friends and enjoying the powerful energies released from our creative endeavours!

Tomorrow is when the main meat of ritual will be conducted, and is something I have to begin truly preparing for! In this work, as mentioned before the whole aim will be the quickening of the world soul and the drawing through of Lucifers solar fire to bring individual and group illumination.

On that note, Id like to simply offer forth two of the calls from the work in honour of Lucifer to share some of this energy with other devotees who walk this path. I don’t pretend these to be works of art, but they are sincere and powerful and I hope they bestow upon the reader at least of fraction of Lucifers solar power and blessing!

The Solar Invocation of Lucifer

‘O Morning Star, hear me!
I invoke thee, Light of my Heart,
The Lord of the Universal Trees of Man,
The Perfect Red King of Sulphur,
O Stellar One!
Phoenix of the Purest Fire!

He who holds in his hands the Light Sun,

Ruler of Life Giving Power fed to the Flesh of the Earth

He who holds in his hands the Black Sun
Master of the Cemetery Rites who shepherds the Mighty Dead!
I pray to you Lucifer, to be present at our hallowed rites of celebration,
Always bestowing your blessings upon your gathered kin!
Now

I ask of you, O Perfect Stellar Flame,
In the name of Hecate,
Supreme Goddess,

In Love and In Honour,

As I walk the Path of the Wise,

Enter now my flesh,
My blood,

My bones,
Witch Kin and God become One!’

Cleansing Flame: The Phoenix and The Synchronomicon

Posted in The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 21, 2018 by Sypheara

I can start this post by safely saying that the issue surrounding the chimeric spirit, as detailed in the previous entry, is now fully resolved.

The spirit was bound successfully on the full moon, into the constructed box and witch jar. This operation went far smoother than expected – although certain physical anomalies did present themselves as the spirit obviously did not wish to be anchored into the vessel. This complicated the ritual slightly but at the end of the day it was completed without serious issue. Follow up dream work, with said spirit, confirmed it was successfully bound.

Due to the sensitive nature of the work unfortunately I cannot provide pictures of this ritual or any documentation detailing it in depth. However, I do want to quickly and briefly discuss the synchronomicon of Lucifer, how I see it being used and it’s connection to the Phoenix in my work.

The Pyramids of Giza by Daniel Clarke

Lucifer as anyone involved in Witchcraft the Trident Current will know, is a truly complex entity. The many masks, names and identities all attributed to him are endless, and to truly delve into this subject and his history would be the subject of an essay all to itself! In Trident craft, there exists a particularly powerful set of Voces Magicae, which allow the witch to channel the power of all the many names of this witchgod at once.

Described in detail in Queen of Hell by Mark Alan Smith, the synchronomicon is vital to correctly channel Lucifer at the higher levels required for further theurgic work.  However, in the original book the means by which the synchronomicon is unlocked is detailed only briefly: it is stated Lucifer should be evoked explicitly and the synchronomicon requested.

It would be good to add that of course, it doesn’t always go smoothly. Lucifer isnt simply going to give access to this because someone THINKS they deserve it. As anyone who has been reading the latest entries would know, Lucifer may ask of the witch to fulfil a particular task or bring forth a particular piece of knowledge forward in payment for its unlocking in pact.

Note that the explicit evocation and fulfilling any agreed pact is required before the synchronomicon can be used. I have seen recently many so called witches and occultists, usually those who are not really working with the current but simply mashing material together, use the synchronomicon call wedged into their work seemingly with little thought or respect.

Without the proper process undertaken to unlock it, the synchronomicon call, vocalised, is worthless.  Without that step it is purely empty, meaningless words. It has to be unlocked at soul level.

This is a point I cannot stress enough. If you see someone detailing to use this call without stressing this point, it shows they likely have NO understanding of the synchronomicon and lack the ability to actually make use of it. This sounds like common sense but it feels a point I think has not been taken on board.

Once unlocked, the change from before and after should be obvious. To myself, the synchronomicon bestowed strange, fire like powers, revealing the phoenix flame within. This takes the form of a literal phoenix within a transparent, gold-copper pyramid which can be extracted and its energies directed to compel, bind and cleanse upon both inner and physical planes.  I don’t feel this is somehow unique to myself but something that anyone with the right approach, and paying the right price, can also gain access to.

The Phoenix by Dan Woollard

This is the difference in power between those who use empty words chasing ‘recognition’ and those who put in the work and are able to access this point of power directly. The pure stellar fire that is able to be directed as well as the quickening of Lucifers energies when used in possession work makes this more than worth the effort to attain.

Using the phoenix once bestowed seems entirely intuitive. It is able be to fed directly into the aura to protect and heal. It can also be projected into the surrounding circle in ceremonial work to greatly reinforce and empower the ritual space.  The use of the phoenix in this fashion can be done almost in an instant by drawing it from the heart energy centre. When bestowed, the sigil of the phoenix can also be marked on particular surfaces for various effects. I leave that up to those who are able to gain access to the phoenix to explore.

With the night soon to be waning as we enter the Sabbat, I will leave this post on the following note. Now is a great time to work with Lucifer at his most light bringing, in all aspects, of the black, white and red suns. I have a work planned with those nearby locally to earth these alchemical suns as part of both a celebration in Lucifers name and quickening of the world soul and I am so very much looking forward to it. If I can I hope to share some of the calls as part of a devotional and blessing post tomorrow~

May you keep well and grow reader, illuminated and protected by the Stellar Fires of the Phoenix~

Ave Lucifer,
