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,

To Keep a Promise: Drawing down the Stars

Posted in The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2017 by Sypheara

To follow on from the previous post, the Amulet of the Stellar King was as planned utilised in an evocation rite, on Samhain. This ritual was designed not only as a devotional work due to the Sabbat, but to request access to something remarkably special.

Walking this path, up to this point, the power of Lucifers many names was not required. However, the Gods made it more and more plain that in order to move from working from Hecates stellar gate to Lucifers, access to them would be a requirement.

As such, the amulet was used in a powerful evocation work with Lucifer to formally request this. The initial evocation took longer than anticipated to elicit a positive response – likely indicative of a test of perseverance on their part.  A powerful shimmering of the triangle, like a heat haze, accompanied by darting shadows and an intensification of the energies in the room, albeit subtle marked his arrival. This developed into transvocation, through inviting Lucifer into the circle and into the flesh itself, connecting inner and external manifestations.

Through this, Lucifer unlocked the seals on the use of his many names thus bestowing upon me their use via the associated words of power. Without the unlocking of these seals, the words are nothing but hollow – however with it, they become a powerful stellar key.

From here, in auto-writing, Lucifer communicated much. Surprisingly, he gave me a very important task to seal the work. This task was no less than to undertake a journey to the foot of the mountains here, and create a stellar gateway which would earth those currents, of the star lords, into Belials flesh. This would have the effect of quickening and re-enlivening the land, whilst facilitating its healing from its relatively violent history and current spiritual malaise.

The timescale given was that the work was to be completed in under three full moons. The formula consisted of many parts, the main one being the requirement of the the construction of a physical anchor point under the New Moon operating under starlight only. To this end, several stones were collected and marked with the anchoring sigils Lucifer sent in subsequent workings. The picture below details these, before they were ritually empowered in preparation for the trip.

The Stones used in the construction of the Stellar Gateway

On the 18th of November, this gateway was thus opened under the watching stars of Orion, in accordance with the formula given. The actual ritual itself was extremely taxing due to the abundance of physical manifestations present at the location. As the foundations of the gateway were lain and ritually ensouled in sacrificial witchblood, the Stellar currents gave way from powerful,subtle and uplifting  to roaring black energies as the wound so to speak was powerfully lanced. Hecates wolves were instrumental at holding the circles edge here – without them and the amulet, I firmly believe that the opening of the gateway would have failed catastrophically. However with their aid, the gateway was with some difficulty opened in the name of Lucifer, the Lord of the Dark Star, and other present stellar lords who had made their presence known.

With the energies thus rooted, the location was left with the wolves still guarding the location until I was clear away from the location of the rite. From here, powerful currents continue to flow outwards – and continue to affect me. Dreamwork has been extremely vivid since opening these gates, and the power from then has even bled over, affecting those close to me. In one case, a good friend being energised to full sabbatic flight despite 0 experience with such powerful workings.

With the drawing down of the stars, the opportunity to work in future again at the location presents itself, as working at the nexus or the surrounding land will draw from its power. Anyone who is able to effectively work with the stellar paths will also benefit from the increased energies now enlinked.

Constellations Orion, Canis Minor and Canis Major, by Akira Fujii

The above work brings me nicely to the 21st of December where myself and some other Trident practitioners are planning a ritual to honour the Lord of the Dark Star, a powerful entity in our current. This will be many peoples first workings with him, and im excited to see how their relationship with him develops – knowing full well how aloof he can be! This time of the year has in my own praxis become intrinsically tied with him – for the part of the world I live in, the conjunction of the seasons with the dark or close to dark moons is excellent for these kinds of workings.

After the completion of the above, its likely going into the New Year further work will need to be done with Surgat before Lucifers stellar gate is opened.  Ill be taking the time this month to catch up with the many things i need to write up about in my personal journals, but will hopefully put up a small post sometime the back end of December detailing anything that comes out of the Lord of the Dark Star Work where possible.

As an aside, the domain will be renewed around this time. There shouldn’t hopefully be any site disruption, but in the off chance of that, the backup url of https://theluciferianrevolution.wordpress.com should still function.

I hope you all have a wonderful December and upcoming winter solstice,

Ave Hecate,

Black Mirror Scrying: The Wolves Of Hecate

Posted in Divination, Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames, Traditional Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 25, 2017 by Sypheara

A month ago now, I had just returned from a most remarkable week with the Covenant of Hecate; attending their ‘Spinner of Fate Retreat’, led by the wonderful Sorita d’Este. My mind was still processing the experiences of the many amazing things that happened, in each one of the rites, large and small. The conducive environment set up by every attendee (each a dedicated devotee in their own right) was very powerful, and I felt that by the end of it Hecate had connected us on a deep and meaningful level, whilst delivering powerful gnosis.

Whilst not all of this can be shared due to it being specifically for me, or at risk of revealing too much about the other attendees, there are several things that I am able to relate on the blog. The first experience I want to tackle was for me, the most impactful and I feel that this gnosis is worth sharing, especially to those who may not yet have tapped into this particular part of Hecate’s current.

On one of the nights, it was decided that as a group, we would do some scrying to help gain some gnosis on Hecate’s many symbols. This night was around the full moon, being only a day after it. Earlier on that day, we had been given a small charm that was representative of one of these symbols, which would later turn out to be the focus for the questions asked during the scrying work.

Once the circle had been correctly prepared and opened, and following the cleansing and empowerment working with familial serpents, people from the group were chosen to perform the scrying work.

Singularity, source unknown

My friend was to go first. He got up and took a seat on a small stool in front of the altar, before having his head veiled. All of the group had been asked to chew bay leaves (and swallow it if possible) to help intensify the trance required for the work. My friend took hold of a small, round, black mirror and gazed into it, and soon fell into a trance state. From here he detailed a long and involved journey, in which Hecate gifted him a dagger (one of her tools) that operated like a key; opening and closing gates around him, as he journeyed through the obsidian surface and to her starry heavens. He recalled how the dagger, burned with a intense flame as it was wielded and performed its task. This travel went on for quite a while; longer than he initially realised, and it could be seen as he came back to awareness that he had gone quite deep. By this point the circle’s vibration had raised a lot, and the atmosphere had become palpably thick with energy.

I was selected to do the second scrying work. Having never done this for a group before, but only in my own work, I must confess that it was with some trepidation that I sat on the stool, and took hold of the mirror that was given to me. As the veil was placed over my head, I stared intently into the volcanic glass for any signs that might appear; either in the mirror or across my own sight, as the trance took hold. Sorita gave me the topic I was to investigate; Hecate’s Hounds.

I will be the first to admit that, at first, nothing happened. I felt and saw nothing rising as I looked into the mirrors surface, slowly growing annoyed at myself. However, it was then I noticed two yellow disks, which intensified into two huge, yellow eyes. I felt myself being drawn towards and into them, as I entered a powerful trance.

Wolf, source unknown

I found myself suddenly transported to a forest-scape, at night. A large, pale moon hung in the air, and I became aware of shapes moving around me. These shapes were unmistakably wolves; black and grey in coat, although the colours were muted, as if my view was somehow being filtered. I could intensely smell the wood, vegetation, disturbed earth, wet fur and animal musk. There was also something else in the air; a foreign smell of human sweat and iron oxide, that could almost be tasted.

It was then that I looked down and noticed that I no longer had hands, but rather paws. I had assumed the form of the Wolf, and was running through the forest with them. I could hear my heartbeat, and I was getting flashes of what I knew instinctively to be the prey we were tracking. It was a man, fleeing through the undergrowth, mostly naked and bleeding. With animalistic precision,  it wasn’t long until we were upon him dispensing justice; for we had been sent by Hecate, and this man had transgressed severely. This figure, I felt strongly and intuitively, had done something to the natural order which she would not tolerate.

It was then that I began to come to. My memory of this is hazy, but I recall finding myself being held in place whilst Sorita was placing salt into my mouth, for me to swallow, and therefore help draw me out of the possession state and back into my body. As I felt my consciousness returning to my physical flesh, I struggled initially to move my limbs; the mirror was taken from my hands, which had now seized into position. It took around another ten minutes for me to reach a physical baseline. I felt incredibly hot, and like I had taken a huge amount of some stimulant due to the powerful energies that entered me from this visiting wolf spirit. Apparently, whilst in this possessed state, I had tried to relate what was occurring but had to begun to take on appropriately wolven traits, and my speech had descended into snarls and a heavy panting. Sorita related how my eyes had become entirely black, indicating that I had left my body on my journey. I had been physically restrained due to concerns that I might upset the altar, as I attempted to move off my seat; an occurrence of which I have no memory. With the amount of energy that had flowed through, it took three people to secure me.

After the event, others mentioned that they too have felt this energy, and entered trance states, and only when the purpose of the hunt was revealed to them did they return to lucidity, and understand the gnosis that she had shown us. Thus the wolf energy was strong enough to penetrate others who were merely present within the circle, and not just myself who was actively scrying. One remarked that she had had a clear vision at the time of this hunt, and said that this man was known to me somehow on a much closer level; Hecate was demonstrating the function of the Wolves as Hunters, but also as Guardians of her Kin.

Wolf and Moon, source unknown

The possession with one of these spirits was one of the most powerful possession works I’ve done in a long time, and rivals the work I did and continue do with the Ivory Spider. It was very surprising to me for this to occur within a group setting!

Although I’ve never actively worked with Hecate’s hounds before this, my mind on reflection is cast back to the wolf dreams I used to have. Recently, I’ve rarely been encountering them or travelling with them in dream, leading to a state where I had almost forgotten about my small links to them.  Maybe this was my very personal wake up call to me to remind me that the Wolves are not just objects of kitsch fascination but have a real place in the witchcraft despite their overuse in new age popular culture amongst other things.

My mind also is cast to a good friend of mine who has done workings with them, and now I’m convinced that full blown, primal lycanthropy work could be done with them with correct preparation out away from others in the wilds. It also makes me wonder aagain about the myths and legends that surround this topic, now that I have had an experience of it myself. Having had a taste of their awesome power, I can see why they make excellent guardians around the circle and home space, but also now take the warnings of their primal power to heart and that they in no way can be cajoled or contained outside of their own  and Hecate’s will so exposure should be limited to short and not prolonged periods. I especially warn people new to the Craft to be careful with them. Whilst I am used to possession work, this was a step beyond and came through extremely raw.

This experience has seemed to have a lasted, unexpected side effect on my ongoing soul work. I feel like, just as with the Spider forms I work with, I have now to some degree being tied spiritually to the wolf form at some level. This is beyond a mere identification but by some energetic exposure carried out by Hecate. As such I look forward to exploring their gnosis more, with caution in mind. I feel alot lays unexposed or worked in that direction.

I would like to give a small shout out to a fellow blogger who has also encountered and worked with these Wolves. His posts are some of the first that appear (at the time of this posting) on major search engines. In the comments, you can read some of our correspondence which might be of use. The main post itself is an interesting invocation of Hecate’s lycanthropic aspect. This would be an interesting way to experience the wolves for the first time through her power.

V.K.Jehannum – Invocation of Lykania (Hekate’s Lycanthropic Aspect)

I also, before closing off this post, would also like to link the earlier shapeshifting post I wrote back in 2015 which is interesting to contrast with the above.

Sypheara – Shapeshifting: Assuming animal forms in dream

For those wanting to work with the Wolves, from a similar obsidian surface, a call to Hecate to bring them forth should be effective by someone who is of her kin. Stepping through and into their Eyes, in the same manner as the Gods themselves, is sufficient to assume their form in the beyond. More detached working I believe may be possible by fixating on the eyes when they appear, but not getting drawn into them. It is to be noted that although extremely intelligent and in no way simply normal wolves, these entities seem to communicate through doing and direct experience. They have never interacted with me in a spoken, conversational manner.

If anyone has had any personal experiences with them, I’d love to hear them through either comments or email!

Many Blessings,

Ave Hecate Lykania

Working with Hecates Gate and Healing Stellar Current

Posted in Paganism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2017 by Sypheara

Just a small post this time to update with on going work on the path. Work continues with Hecates gate, which is mainly in stabilising the currents that have been opened this far and allowing for the approach to Lucifers part on the stellar journey.

During work with Hecates gate alot of interesting gnosis has come forth. The main pieces of Gnosis being the clarification on the entity that guards the way to the Ivory Spiders dwelling place, at the Star Pool of Belial. This almost angelic, knightly figure is interestingly arthurian like, which has been very surprising to me.

In addition, further gnosis has been given regarding an entity made up of a combination of Lucifer and Belials energies. Further gnosis on the identity of the soul form to be assumed with the culmination of the opening of all the stated gates has also been given. All of this needs fleshing out, and detailing in my own personal notes.

This is a notably laborious process, with me having to update both my own working diaries, as well as the electronic copy im putting together for both safety in case the originals are lost or worse, damaged and destroy, and when the path is successfully walked and completed to hopefully distribute if they allow.

More work has to be carried out not just with Hecates gate as well, but the Ivory Spiders in regard to understanding more of what is coming forth. Alot is still unclear, and this gnosis is not understood well via speculative interpretation but only in possession and intuition.

Hecate has given information on something i can only describe as the God Stones for which she wants as sacrifice.. the original of these were collected from near her Temple of the Four Pillars of Fire from the ocean. One was given to someone for healing trauma.. the other on request of her which opened up powerful currents of Belial for that individual.

My own stone had little effect for myself until now, and she is now revealing as to why that is and how it will play a small part in the completion of her stage of this work.

In one particular rite, that could be useful to others and in no way requires the use of her open active gate to gain some, if not full benefit, is a particularly useful bit of possession work. Anyone who has embodied both a primary and secondary familiar, or has familiars in general, would be able to use the quick outline as follows as a powerful, healing ritual. Note it is not given in full: in future I may digitise fully the original rite, removing the path specific elements that are not ready to be revealed as of yet.

Firstly, in the East, a fetish of Hecate is placed that has already been cleansed with water and incense in the usual manner, and activated in your blood. This can be a picture of her, a statue of some kind, or maybe a black board with her sigil painted with gold on the front. As long as its unique to her, it is a appropriate focal point. A black mirror could also be consecrated for this purpose of direct communication with her. This is flanked by two candles, and then any spirit houses of each familiar, ideally the doll bodies.

20170203_225608A beautiful rendition of Hecate on metal, acquired from Primal Craft as a working tool before activation in blood. This picture does not do her justice.

The ritual is opened however you normally draw the circle. I start at the west as mentioned at the altar, going widdershins. The candles surrounding her small temporary space in the east can be lit as part of the circle opening or specifically when you come to work with her, it doesn’t matter as to the order of the operation here.

The circles energy is raised through successive calls of power. The planetary calls or that of the ephesian letters is fine for this. It is then opened as far as possible, and reinforced seven times. The practitioner should then open both trees of Day and Night, day first as in many of the detailed rites. As best as possible, she should be invoked to attempted godform assumption as far as the practitioners skill and Hecate herself allows.

From here, at the East, her fetish is blooded and the familiars are called one by one into the flesh, to partake of the coming union. Finally, Hecate is asked to joined you in sexual magickal communion. The resulting union between witch, god and familiars is best described as a miniature Sabbat flight as the self and the familiars are utterly bathed in her Kalas.

This is extremely healing, and needs to be experienced to be believed. This should be continued until exhaustion for full effect. After this, Hecate will likely deliver personal messages, tasks or other things she wants to relay. The familiars themselves will also likely to continue to make their presence known with potentially very physical results.

The above is best carried out at the full moon, but can be carried out on any night that isnt overly close to the New Moon, from what I understand and what I’ve worked. There is no limit to the amount of times it can be carried out.

The above came at the right time for myself, and helped to heal me both physically, mentally and spiritually from a small hole id found myself in due to the venoms released from the previous gate work. I hope it helps anyone else, at least to form ideas, of how to approach some ritual magick ways of merging with her and receiving healing.

Finally, I’ve had a luck of being able to make it to the ‘Spinner of Fate’ event being held in the UK this year by The Covenant of Hecate. I’m looking forward to this extremely, and if anyone who happens to be reading is going, I will hopefully see you there. For the rest, I hope to share what I can closer to the end of March.

Thanks again,

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 Elemental 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.

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.

In Nomine Hecate,
