GATEWAYS THROUGH LIGHT AND SHADOW

The Magical world has indeed exploded for me in rather surprisingly consistent episodes of work, achievement and continued exploration.  I have not kept up with this blog as well as I should…or will have liked but I do have another WORD PRESS blog as well as a FACE BOOK PAGE and FACE BOOK profile…all of which I’ve been trying to keep updated. Grated the face book page has received the most attention because…well its easier and I’m on there more frequently.

For those of you who look into this blog from time to time. I have had some more publications come out.  I have switched publishers for the time being and have been working with AZOTH Press.  I recently contributed to their début book LIBER SPIRITUUM which is an excellent anthology of fellow magicians such as myself sharing their personal expertise.Liber S 1

 

Well,  time, long in anticipation is now at hand :). AZOTH PRESS launched  the official promotion and preorders for my next publication and legacy of my magical career!

Within the pages of “Gateways Through Light and Shadow”, I reveal the entirety of magical experiments which are around 30 unique experiments. Each of the records contain several evocations and magical experiments which were conducted over the span of four consecutive years. Each magical experiment was transcribed directly from audio recordings of the actual evocations. Accurate word for word record is entered into this magical record. Each evocation and experiment lasted an hour or more with detailed and in depth responses to questions which were put to the spirits. In most cases I asked the Angels and spirits questions which have been mysteries and enigmas, never before revealed in occult literature. A few of the opening questions were:

  1. What is your origin and source. Can you tell us of this?
    2. Is what the grimoires and historical text (if relevant Bible) say about you is true?
    3. What is your true nature and workings with humanity? How do you consider humanity?
    4. Are there any new talismans, spells, charms you can impart to us to harness the full benefit of your office(es)?
    5. What are the best ways to contact you and work with you?

The seven planetary archangels are conjured, this time being revealed (scryed) by my magical partner with his exact relations and translations of their responses. Exquisite detail of his visions and experiences are recorded to give the reader a profound picture of the majesty and wonderment these beings exhibit. The responses my scryer and I received astounded us and left us in awe. We often discussed the workings hours after the actual operation and I include much of these conversations and debriefing as well. Without a doubt I believe the work my scryer and I have done has shed new light into the occult community.

Magical Services


Fairly recently I began offering magical services in the area of magical consulting, spellwork, and talisman/implement constructing.

In the past years I have enjoyed speaking with those who have come seeking my perspective on matters which typically relate to the magical grimoires and their practice. Although I in no way consider my viewpoint and experience the end all to classical magical working, I am happy to share what I have learned with those who value my time.
A major reason why I have not blogged much in the last year or so is greatly due to my schedule filling up beyond belief. Besides writing books and tiredly continuing my own magical rituals, more and more eager magicians have come to me asking my assistance and feedback regarding their own work. A few have commissioned me to create magical items for them that they themselves do not have the skill or time to make themselves. I found I have enjoyed doing this for the individuals who truly appreciate what I do and the time and effort which goes into my magical work.

Those who know me and know my work, KNOW that I take magical pursuits very seriously and am not interested in cutting corners on conducting rituals, striving for unambiguous results, and conducting rituals with the proper implements and paraphernalia. In the area of classical magical I have a very particular approach and have realized I am not the only one.

For those of you on the path of traditional western ceremonial/ritual magick, the Solomonic strain of grimoric evocation/invocation, and conjuration, if there is a matter you think I could help you with then you may wish to consider the following services I am now providing:
Magical consulting price list:

-For Skype or other visual/audio media conference: $125.00 per hour.

-For Instant Messaging over Social media: $90.00 per hour.

– For email assistance and correspondence for your particular issue, price will be adjusted based on length of teaching/coaching, and feedback etc.

– Spellwork will be considered and priced after initial inquiry and consideration of your request. I am unlikely to assist anyone who is wishing to manipulate another, bring them under your control, put a love or hex on anyone or other such nonsense. If your motivations and reasons for magic are in any way suspect I will most likely not take your case.

Making veritable magical implements is also my forte as I have made countless vestments, implements, and other such items used in ceremonial magick based from the Solomonic strain of ceremonial magic. If you need an Item based of the Key of Solomon, The Lesser Key or Lemegeton, Heptomeron, Grimorium Verum, The Grand Grimoire, The Grimoire of Pope Honorius, etc. I have either made them already or could make them as they are specified in the actual grimoire. My abilities and expertise are not limited to the above works of magic however so if you are interested in an art or implement outside of this realm feel free to inquire.

I also have made the ritual items for DSIC as I describe in my book, Gateways Through Stone and Circle not only for myself but for other serious magicians as well.

Many if not most grimoric items are quite difficult to make properly. The materials which go into them are typically expensive and difficult to come by as well. I time the crafting of such implements seriously and will adhere to the times and planetary alignments listed in the Key of Solomon if they are not specifically listed in the grimoire they originate from.

For the Art of DRAWING SPIRITS INTO CRYSTALS (DSIC):

For the Ebony Pedestal: $900.00 (Materials: Black ebony wood, 24k gold leafing and symbols, 18k gold filled plate and 100% quartz crystal sphere.

Spirits in the house

So an interesting follow up to my post I did shortly after I moved into my new house: http://bryanashen.blogspot.com/2013_08_01_archive.html
 
 It’s hard to believe it has been over a year! And What a year! I was so worried that my smaller magical room would dampen or dissuade me from consistent magical working …and boy was I wrong. Hands down, the most successful magical operations I have conducted to date has been in my “new” magical chamber. The modest sized room has been the location for the majority of the material which my next book will be about. Archangels, spirit kings, ghosts and elementals, all contacted in no subtle way in that room. Funny how things work out. Not only did I have a suitable place for magical workings, I also received first hand results on how a house and area can indeed be cleared by magical, albeit holy workings.
 
A quick synopsis for those not wanting to read or reread my post about clearing the house after we first moved in: The very night of the move we immediately began having haunting type activity to the point where no one could sleep very well and my wife demanded I do a clearing as soon as possible. Well after a rather intense room to room clearing with magical sword,…and an unexpected encounter with an elongated spirit with blurred, milky white features who demanded I “get all my stuff out”,… it turns out the back-story would right around the corner.
 
Several months ago, my wife pulled up in front of our house to find one of those plastic and fabric flowers near a tree in our front yard with a message attached t it. The message was an obvious note to someone who had passed away and how much the one who left the flower had missed them. A bit of research done by my wife found the name written on the note matching a one of a previous owner of the house and also a news article. The article outlined a tragedy in which some sort of conflict had broken out where the now deceased man had been in angered state and was firing off rounds in the backyard when police were called. The details which ensued afterward are vague but resulted in the man being shot and killed in the backyard, our backyard now.
 
Several months after finding the flower and news article my scryer and I were in my magical chamber talking to my –fm- house spirit at its request. My –fm- spirit mentioned to us that the man who had been shot and killed in our backyard should be “called, given a  blessing, and reassessed” at some point in the near future. I thought this was interesting albeit a bit random concerning the main topic we were talking to the spirit for. Also, the spirit thing that appeared (right in my face) didn’t want to talk or reason with me but jest kept issuing orders so I had to send it on its merry-astral way. My –fm- spirit which came along later (and shall be another post), mentioned that it was not a deceased person but a being that came in “from the land” and was rather disliking of people but apparently enjoyed making them angry, spooked, irritable, and so on.
 
Ironically (or not) my wife and I were contacted by the deceased man’s mother who also lived in the house less than a week later. Apparently she wanted to know if we would allow her in the backyard with some specialist to go over the details of her son’s death and see if there was any provable discrepancies on the side of the officer shooting and killing her son. She also left her number and asked if either my wife or I could call and speak with her concerning this. My wife called the next day and had a rather interesting conversation with the woman.. She at first spoke about the history and the fact that her son had been shot and killed there and was apologetic to break the news to us to which my wife said that she had already found out and was aware of the situation. The woman went on to ask my wife if we had “experienced any unusual phenomena” and described how she had always hear footsteps, find windows in the downstairs open, and other unusually occurrences. Besides this she also remarked how the family were always fighting, how there was always a tension in the air there. My wife said that there had been occurrences but that her husband was sort of an expert in this area and knew how to get rid of it and that the house was peaceful.  …Apparently this woman had already done a bit of background checking on both myself and my wife and found out that I’m a magician  :-0… (it’s really not hard to do these days…ohh well)  Luckily she was not antagonistic towards me or my wife knowing this fact and actually delighted to hear that I had done something about the haunting. I continue to find it rather amusing how the realities of my life tend to play out like a not so boring paranormal occult novel. Not that I’m complaining, but it does make you shake your head and smile at just how interesting life can be and how very few would ever believe it.

A Journey into fire

A few weeks ago I offered a few close friends (who were willing) a chance to experience the sensation of true astral projection and exploration in the astral planes. The first person to volunteer was a gifted seer, veritable Druid in the Celtic path, and long time friend.

In the two experiments given bellow I was lucky enough to have a partner who had been developing his spiritual sight and practice consistently for many years. That is to say his dedication for daily meditations, rituals, and following his path is impressive by anyone’s standards. We had known each other for over a decade and working together was quite easy and productive.

My method for inducing the effects for astral projection is to have the subject experience the deepest level of trance and relaxation as they are able and to physically experience the notable effects of pre-astral travel before the actual experience occurs. They are led to feel the quick vibrational hum of the energy moving about them, the experience of rocking or spinning, loosing sense of direction and gravity, and the sensation of lifting out of their body.

This was the first experiment I did with him to experience the astral plane. His record is below:

“First the sensation of rising was gentle but palpable. I was very aware of Fra. Ashen’s voice during the entire experience. Before leaving the room, which I could not see very well, I was suddenly rising through the floor of a hospital room in the midst of a surrounding privacy curtains, around a bed that contained a man whose face was in very bad shape, bloody, swollen, he looked to be completely unaware, the vision quickly faded and I was back rising through the roof of the house.
Sense of relaxation was very intense now, the vastness of the blue sky was high, very high above me. I saw for a moment a bird, a black bird, crow or raven flying above me. Again that vision faded and I was back in a dark relaxed state with lights moving before my vision. Moving into space was unsettling, but not dibilitatingly so. The light grew before me and as I moved into it ti was totally encompassing. Again there was a brief vision of a room, totally white, like light infused cream, with table and chairs also white. Again this faded but the feeling of the room was still there.
As Fra. Ashen directed me to see a guide a face appeared before me, very androgynous in appearance, but beautiful and kind in a stoic way. There were not words exchanged at first only impressions. Impression of frequent visitations by his kind to our planet, conveyed with some humor but some gravity. Felt his energy encompass me, almost like wings, an energy exchange or communication, perhaps both.
When I asked how I could easily contact him he pointed to my forehead and heart and said, “Through these places.” Strong impression of needing to work closely with the Operator. When I asked his name there seemed to be a moment of consideration on his part. Impression he had many, eventually he said, (name was given but am omitting it for blog). As I was returning, I saw a very detailed vision of a long rod of aquamarine filled with energy, and pearlized light. Coming back was very comforting and the feeling or dropping back in was not bad in anyway, like a feather falling on a windless day.”
Elemental planes.

This was an exciting proposal for me as it allowed me to recreate magical practices I had delved into during the earlier parts of my magical training and discovery while sharing it with others in a dynamic way. My early foundations for ritual/ceremonial magic were based upon these certain principles and it seemed more than appropriate to come full circle and acknowledge just how much my abilities and methods have matured over the years. In this sense, the practices as well as my magical tools have undergone quite a metamorphosis to encompass my understanding and experience as it has developed.
Hypnosis used with the effects of the “Magician’s Voice” to draw others into a shared mystical experience has been a great tool. I find that if I can just “get the person there”, the rest of the ceremony will follow suit without me having to paint the picture of what things “should” be like. The person experiences what they will all on their own with their own perceptions.

I construct the ritual by utilizing my formula for astral projection coupled with the portal opening invocations by the “Opening by Watchtower” – In this instance, specifically for the Fire element. I assist others to experience the realm of fire and the beings which inhabit it. The traveler will is seated within a magically concreted circle facing the south while gazing at a large, and specifically made fire Tatwaa board. I have them stare at the symbol while taking them through some breathing and deepening exercises. Post hypnotic suggestions are placed to take them into a deep state of mind and form a strong bond with the symbol they are gazing at.
The experience below was again done with the same friend and magical coworker I mentioned above. We have continued to work together and have been vastly enjoying the results and benefits of every operation.


After the chants have been said and invoking done with my fire wand, the subject forms a strong astral connection to the symbol or Tattwa. I will help deepen the level of focus and assist with the ability to project through the tatwaa as a doorway to the Fire realm. – Sound like fun?

FIRE ELMENTAL REALM EXPERIENCE

My magical chamber is set up with TRITHEMIUS circle. An altar was set to the South coverd a scarlet silk covering. My fire wand, a brass censor, fire incense, and candles, as well as few other fire element corresponding symbols are all placed on the altar. my personalized Fire altar tablet with additional Tejas tattwa card are set outside of the circle directly in front of the seated subject. A large “portal mirror” acts as the stand and resting doorway for the tablet and Tattwa card. The subject sits in a comfortable chair and is seated directly behind the altar, placed within the circle facing south. Fire signs drawn over subject’s third eye with fire wand and fire sign portal (upside down V) drawn on his third eye with consecrated fire oil (the likeness to Oil of Abramelin)


As the subject contuse to deepen and star at the fire card, I begin the peremptory and traditional LBRP

Light trance induced where I had him begin to stare at the tattwa card and focus his gaze on it as lit all the red candles and placed fire incense on the censor. I then raise the fire wand in my hand and perform the Opening by watchtower, “And When after all the phantoms are banished, thou shalt see that Holy and Formless Fire! That fire which darts and flashes through the hidden depths of the universe. Hear thou, the voice of fire!” I thrust my fire wand three times toward the tablet, plus symbols of the realm of fire, then an invoking pentagram of fire with the fire Kerub) within the center. Strong, focused intentions are directed toward opening the astral door way to the realm of fire through the tablet. I intone with vigor, “OIP TEAA PEDOCE”, and point my fire wand at the center and intone ELOHIM. “In the names and letters of the great Southern Quadrangle, I Invoke ye, ye angels of the Watchtower of the South!”
Energies in circle and room immediately change as I turn to the scryer/subject and guide him to astral travel state as he continues to stare, I find the right time and have him close his eyes, knowing he’s able to see the inverse tattwa image on his retina…

..With a successive count from 10 down to one, I suggest the Tattwa image growing larger and larger and him being drawn like a magnet toward it. It continues to move closer and grow larger till it become the size of a door way. With a focused breath of release of astral momentum, I could sense the scryer’s energy move out toward the south and fire tablet. At this Point I chanted the Divine name: Yhvh Tzabaoth followed by Archangel: Michael, and Angel: Aral. Further suggestions of allowing images and sense to become acute and experience the Fire elemental plane were given… then I remained still to sense the experiences myself.

Scyer’s Experience:

“As Fra. Ashen’s voice began to direct me through the tattwa I could easily see the reversal of color of the red and green. The doorway being green through my logical associations with color and put them aside and let the experience be. Stepping through the triangle, it lead me into foliage, seeing pulses of light zipping through leaves, vines, and branches. The idea of communicating life force was very evident, in green life. At his point my vision faded out again and I could not see. The I was able to barely see a city formed of shining brass and black and red marble, towers and spinnerets of shining gold, and above it all a great burning presence life suns next to one another and overpowering in light and heat. This was when Fra. Ashen invoked the Archangel Michael. There was so much movement, and I am such a terrible multitasker that it was hard to follow the beings the flashed and moved everywhere, with such rapidity of motion and speed that it took me a long time to get my bearings in all the chaos.

I had to shut my sight down for a few seconds and ask for a being to stop and converse with me. As my vision returned I saw only a face of flame very intent on me. When I asked his name and who he was he cried out “EFREET!!!” Raising his arms and suddenly the scene behind came flooding into vision. A red plain of smooth lave and on the lava sat thousands of brass vases and out of the vases shot pillars of thin fire straight in to the sky. Where the fires touched the ether, above them formed stars, thousands of them.

The Efreet spoke of purification and that it was that energy that connected it with water. It said that healers must bring the presence of fire with them when healing to burn away what was most harmful and unneeded. He talked of connecting into the fire to energize and push through obstacles, it’s energy linked to all four of the forces that fuse the golden key. That fire had many forms some cooling, destructive, purifying, but all was passionate energy.”

The session was concluded by a hypnotic command to do an about face and once again see the astral door way of the fire Tattwa in front of him (the Scryer) and have him once again step through the portal back into the room, a quick 1 to 10 count was given and a Closing by Watchtower of the fire portal was done with a banishing pentagram of fire drawn over. No LBRP was done and the room remained ENERGIZED for a time…… Very positive and amazing energy flowed through both of us the entire reminder of the day and evening. After the operation, I left to run 3 miles and teach my martial arts class with plenty of energy left to burn!

Liber Spirituum su Goetia

Lemegeton-
Book of Spirits, in line with the methods of the Fourth book of Occult Philosophy in design and usage. Although not mentioned in the Goetia, the methods, prayers and procedures I use through the dictated texts are added along with the parchment sigil seals which were present during successful evocations to physical manifestations. ( Not the metal lamen seal but one used in the binding of any oaths or to be sealed in black box)

The seal is adhered to the drawing of the spirit on the left page, while all pertinent information basic and learned during the ceremony is written on the left. Two quill pens are used to scribe in the book, one goose and one black crow. Each have their special ink and purpose.

Front and back of BOS have silver plates bearing appropriate symbols to the work: Front has Solomon’s table figure with pentagram, hexagram, and seal engraved on a plate below. Back (shown) has grand pentacle with plate below (not engraved as of yet)
