Ancestral Work/Magic 101

I am still working on the mirror essay and life is moving a million miles a minute..., but I previously had this in my files.  Given how much I have done with my Great Grandfather (if you have been reading on Facebook you know), it's appropriate for me to post this.  This is how I was taught to do it as a starting point.  Haters, your comments just won't be approved so don't bother.

A lot of times, in my work as a Houngan and a Magician, I can honestly say that ancestor work can produce miracles. I am less of a Vodou liturgist, and more of a Magician, and I have seen real miraculous things happen when you really get it right with the ancestors. This is from getting a job, to better social contacts, healings; lots of tangible and fast results. I am amazed at how many things the ancestors can really help with, when the altar and frame which you work with them is zinging with energy. Of course, this is merely my opinion.

For me personally, some of my ancestors really have a lot of magical knowledge. Personally I have found that techniques such as self- hypnosis, meditation skills, and other forms of quieting the head allow for a better communication stream. This is a lot of what my book, Hands-On Chaos Magic, is about: the basics to intermediate level magic, and what I teach in public (and I do ancestor classes fairly often). Often, when I am sitting down at the ancestor altar, when things are right, I will get results right away, or streams of information; including ideas for practical magical techniques, and more.

Hands-On Chaos Magic will cover the techniques, but not the framework for Vodou service and working within the system. Now personally, I have found that talking to the ancestors is much less about talking, but "vibing". If you are in that quiet center place, it's much easier to communicate. In my experience, the words have always been less important in than that the vibration is right. The most helpful vibe, to me, has been one of gratitude and love.

I will give you a couple examples of getting to that most helpful vibe. How can one get to that centered place more easily where communication is possible? First, realize that each action should be done with intention. What this means, in my humble opinion, is that it's not just putting the food down on the altar; it’s putting the food down with conscious, intentional love, and gratitude for all that came before you. A simple set of techniques helps me with this process. First, I will use various techniques to center and ground. IF I am going to do more a magical operation with the ancestors, a white bath is often a good idea. My ancestors personally like doing magic with me, so this does happen.

While I am serving them, I will breath as deeply as I can, remembering times that I had with some ancestors that really connect to the love of family. I recall memories from childhood, conversations, whatever I can possibly remember. The goal is to let those feelings of love and gratitude for those memories really fill up your body with that good feeling. After feeding them, they will often ask me to sit down and listen, where they will give me good advice. My ancestors are a varied lot, some have great business advice, and some are great magicians. I maintain that vibe of love and gratitude through the conversation and connection (and this always seems to work a lot better). Really, holding a vibe like this is as simple as concentrating on the memories, and bringing all the information up through your imagination. As long as you are really getting into it, and it feels good, your aura will vibrate correctly. If you know songs for the ancestors, and can keep that love and gratitude vibe, it tends to go doubly well. Really, I extensively cover how to create, hold, and maintain a vibe and an auric vibration in 'Hands On Chaos Magic' through multiple chapters of information. Since the purpose is more to get the basic techniques of magical operations in the public eye, I did not specifically give examples relating the techniques to ancestral work, but it's all there.

It is possible, to contact one ancestor at a time but that would be another post. This does use some of the techniques I learned while in Haiti and using the Kardec systems of mediumship (for more information check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allan_Kardec) as well as the Kardecian Africanized practices that make up a Spiritual Mass. Often, if you have an Ancestral staff, merely tapping the staff 3 times, and calling the person's name in love is enough (if you have a connection, and stay in that centered loved based place) to feel their presence.

In a lot of ways, it's easy to misinterpret the communications, so do double check things with divination. I often will combine the Tarot with the Ancestral work to give you a set of techniques to help work with the ancestral currents and fine tune your communicative abilities.   When you are starting out and even later, it is very difficult to separate the message from the messenger.  I know some mediums who will claim to this, but that is really a misunderstanding on their part (or worse).  It still must be filtered through the subconscious mind even for the medium.

With good connections to the ancestors, miracles are possible. That does not mean that you don't have to put the work in. Asking the ancestors for millions of dollars and then sitting on your butt probably will not fly. However, I have seen them, and people who have worked with me to get their ancestral frame working right, get results very quickly, and nothing beats the real sense of peace and love that comes from getting it right with them. I do classes in the mid-west (Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Chicago) on this topic on a semi-regular basis.

Setting Up your Altar
The way I leaned how to do ancestor work in Haiti and the way I teach ancestor work is through a white table method of work.
What you will need:
  • Florida Water.
  • 4 Rocks from around your house ( or 4 quartz crystals)
  • 1 glass cup for water ( preferably clear or white)
  • 1 white shiny cloth covering.
  • 1 white candle
  • Vegetable oil (Easier to obtain and acceptable, though Van Van oil would be
    an even better choice)
  • Small table, shelf, dresser, cabinet top (Obviously the more you want to
    display on your alter as far as pictures and heirlooms will dictate how large of a table you will personally want)
Optional Pictures of your ancestors
Frankincense and Myrrh (Or other incense that will help raise them up) 
Fresh water
Van Van Oil
Bread, rice and beans

Skull imagery 

  1. Clean off the surface to be used.
  2. Wipe down the top with Florida Water.
  3. Optional, but preferred: Mix Florida Water, Water, and some of your
    Urine. Mix this in a bucket and rinse the white tablecloth with it (this does
    not smell). Allow the tablecloth to dry in the sun.
  4. Place the white tablecloth over the area to be used.
  5. Get four small stones from around your house. Clean them by scouring
    them with salt. Rinse them off well (Salt is not good to use for the spirits of
    the dearly departed). Then place one at each corner of your alter.
  6. It is common in Voudou practice to baptize ritual objects. This is a ritual
    method of giving them names. You can take a sprig of basil and splash a baptism onto your water glass, giving it a unique name as you do. Sigilized names work well, or even something like “Mama Aqua Brings Spirits”. The name should be unique; by naming it the glass becomes a unique thing. It is now a powerful portal between you and your ancestors. Place this glass with water onto the center of the alter and add a sprinkle of Florida Water, white wine, white rum, or a little anise.
  7. Into a glass candleholder, place some earth or small rocks from around your home and a few grains of salt (Just a few grains of salt to remove negativity). Take a white candle, and with pure vegetable oil or Van Van oil, rub the candle from the middle to the top then from the middle to the bottom. As you rub the candle direct your energy through your hands and pray for spiritual awareness. Put the candle firmly into the candle holder and place it in front of the glass of water.
  8. Optional: Place pictures of your ancestors or articles from your ancestor’s onto the altar. Place any skull or dead imagery onto the alter as well.
  9. Light the candle and call out to your ancestors to come and commune with you. If you are familiar with chakra work, you can also open all chakras before you communicate with your ancestors. Other blog posts here go over some ways to do this.
  10. Give the ancestors some bread. A cup of coffee with sugar and black. Other good offerings include: Rice, rice and beans, sweets, chicken roasted corn, grilled peanuts, fresh coconut. Ask your ancestors; they will happily let you know. Avoid salt in the food as it can take energy from spirits and you are using the food to provide them with a source of energy (this is a point of contention within some houses and sites).    
  11. Take a little time to sit at your altar, quite your mind and listen for messages that they may want to give you. We'll cover some mediumship techniques in the show. 
Of course, this is just a start.   We covered this with a hypnotic meditation on Deeper Down the Rabbit hole, so if you want a little more info  Click here and kick back and listen.   Deeper Down will come back, I think sooner then later (and yes, with me).

For food for though, I would say don't go to the ancestor altar asking for things right away.  Go to develop and learn about them, and yourself.  Go for a real relationship, then it is easier to ask for things.

If you want to see some thoughts on why I think the ancestral altar builds results more quickly then without it from a non-paradigmal point of view, check out:

Andrieh Vitimus on Dead Files Revisited: Fractured

So this week I got horribly swamped, but I did want to write about mirror magic and have been totally hosed for time.

So instead I will cheat, since I have something interesting to cheat with. I was in the Dead Files Revisted Innocent Blood and Fractured, here is the episode.

Here is a video where the second part I got to do the home exorcism on the Travel Channel on Dead files.   If you would like to buy it, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RUJVK9E/ref=dv_dp_ep8

A couple things, If you want to complain to the producers that they didn’t name me, feel free.  They did it to all the people who were disposable “fix the problem”.  It is bullshit, but oh well.

They really didn’t show the full rituals.  The first was a New Orleans Style ritual to the Baron and his Wife to help remove the dead and more so really give the dead compassionate release.  The Dead Files Did not show the possession  Apparently at one point, I was crying for a while.  The camera men and woman had NEVER seen that from anyone in any of the cleansing, and most said they could feel the emotions. We had laid out a METRIC shit ton of food for the dead too, and candles.

The second part is a planetary archangel ritual, where all 7 planetary archangels were called into the house and then called to give blessings into a 7 planetary archangel incense.  They only showed 2 angles, I went across 7 planets using Michael as Sun ( sorry thats where I put him).  I do have the whole ritual written out, and I have worked it before… Its a fantastic ritual that brings all planets into balance and their highest aspirations.  It also happens to work real well for home excorcisms, banishing the stuck feeling, or as a jumping off point towards really powerful Bornless ones or HGA work.  Its not quite as “stiff” as most ceremonial magic operations and involves alot of training pre-steps and progressive training to work the ritual.  Pretty much I worked on that ritual for years and theres certain ways to make it work through proper training. I have done this with Jason Colwell, and we had so many weird occurrences happen when we did it. EVENTUALLY I will get that ritual out there, but you can see part of it above.

What they didn’t show, was that I went ROOM to room, cleansing every nook and cranny in that house with the incense and a white candle placing some physical bit of the incense in every corner.  Of course, they didn’t bother to mention that, but I did go the extra mile for them.  So if you have a house situation, like that one, want shit gone?  I can take care of and get your house back to normal.  I am happy to fly out to various places ( and we can work out the cost).

Outside the “not name the people”, I was really glad I could help the family on Dead Files. I know alot of what you see on TV is fake, but I made sure it was real for these people. I might have disagreed with Amy on some of her impressions and what was there ( there was stuff there, just not really everything was as bad as it was made to seem), but the angel work I did there did do the intended effect which was to heal the living and the negative vibes in the house.  They had real pain, and that helped to clear and heal it. Hell the dead slave problem was enough to cause that. I was just happy I could get their home back to a home. That's how I roll.

It was a fun time, Amy at least said "For this you need a chaos magician,  they are truly powerful, and I only call them out in the worst of cases"..  Haha... see with all the hate blogs we get, at least somebody respects our "Power".

Entitlement does not fit the budding magician

So usually I don't respond to hate mail, but this one I think is indicative of a whole undercurrent of people who get into magic.  Here is a paraphrase:

“Your book doesn't get to the point.  I need results now, not some obtuse staring exercise is not magic. Sigil magic don’t work. “

I won’t, in this blog, criticize the review that penned hands on Chaos magic as a hoodoo book after I included one chapter on sorcery … mainly using their review to sell their own products, but for the people who make those types of claims above.

and A hell of a lot of people get results when you are not.  
and Maybe you are the problem.

In the recent blog wars of the internet, Jason Miller and Gordon White got multiple “fuck you”, where’s the magic in your blog.. I will touch on that too...

Why does Hands On Chaos Magic have 6-10 chapters on building focus and imagination before sigils?

Because these are skills people do not have in the modern age.  This is to the point that Fortune 500 companies are teaching people mindful meditation to actually try to help people’s focus.  Any magical system requires intense focus, pointed training of will, and fierce imagination in the senses.  People do not, in the modern world, come prepackaged with this.  Skipping all the training and building of that, the magic probably will not work.  Sorry that is not what you want to hear.  That is the problem, so often in the magical community, the business of the occult is telling people mainly what they want to hear.  I am convinced of that.

Focus is such a problem that people have to get trained to even marginally be productive on their jobs.  In fact, everything attacks focus.  So that “obtuse not getting to it” is your mind training to even have any life success.  Think I am kidding on this point, read any book on business success.  Focus and attentiveness, in a culture of information overload, is one key to success.

Critical thinking, imagination and method testing are the keys to innovation.  These are life skills, not just magical skills.  These are skills which, not surprisingly, separate the successful from the non-successful.   It really should not be a surprise that they are needed for magic since practical magic really is creating life better.  Life is still in the goal there, so life skills are still the foundation.

Usually, unfortunately the same people who argue this kind of point, are the same ones who think they do not need to make life changes, or think they have to learn life skills, or make self-improvement attempts.  Magic has never worked that way and you get “Nothing Sir”.  Most likely these are the same people who blame their co-workers for their lack of promotion, blame external circumstances for everything in their life, and blame anyone they can to avoid self-reflection.

If you have no focus skills you might be lucky to get 1/1000 sigil enchantments to work.  Getting the different trance states down, and really getting focus, probably ⅕ as per Peter Carroll... maybe ½ once you're in the magical zone.    Of course, sigils aren’t the only thing you use.   People who claim 90-100% success, eh they are engaged in sucking their own cock… and are building a myth to sell shit.  With the training, the problem with sigils and magic in general is that it does work - just the wording or way it comes about disguises the result.  Sure it comes, in a way you don’t expect, or you make the attribution to your personal life skills not the magic because they are so intertwined.

If you think that magic is the easy pill towards your life being wonderful and great…. guess what:


Usually, that price is our self-construction, comfort zone, mental transformation, or time.   Shit do financial magic, and confront the fact you have been conditioned with shit beliefs about money.  It happens.  The sacrifice of transformation is present, and there is an exchange (just not the traditional views of what sacrifices are).  Of course there are authors that say no, the sacrifice aspects are non-existent, but I have made a New Year’s resolution to no longer argue with idiots, so I won’t be naming them.

So let’s get back to the focus and magic.  The better your life skills are adapted to your goals or passions or current vector, the better your capacity for successful magic on that endeavor.  If those things aren’t there, the magician has to develop them.

I am horribly introverted, yet I go to Toastmasters EACH week giving speeches to help my public speaking (I am considered  a very good presenter and speaker, but I mostly do that under the veil of Andrieh Vitimus, not my legal name).  If I fully want to embrace INFLUENCE magic, this is a needed and important pre-requisite.    These soft skills directly improve all the magic on those lines in a synergy that acts as a multiplier of the magical success, and is not independent of the magic.   I should be reviewing my NLP skills too, as well as actively engaging with other people.

Most people who want to get serious into magic should IMHO take on a philosophy of
'Lifelong learning'

AKA (Colloquialism) is the "ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated"[1] pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances social inclusion, active citizenship, and personal development, but also self-sustainability, rather than competitiveness and employability.[2]

It’s in adopting that philosophy applied to our self-transformation and magic, that the magic we plant has the greatest chance to grow. Even the basic skills of focus and imagination directly tie into those life skills.

Of course, this is why so many authors keep talking about life-skills. Life Skills are an easy topic to boost magical results. It’s a feel good fix that is an easy, let’s get a boost and make people feel good. Whether or not some occult experts are also experts on training those life-skills aspect should be a matter of debate per author.  Given the over-the-top emotionally stunted screaming to defend oneself that already occurs, it may not be one that the community can realistically have at this time.   The secret truth of magic is probably something like this:
“ You could have only one little enchantment or technique and probably get to where you want to in life, if you have real dedication to the process” - Andrieh Vitimus … go ahead you can quote me on that.

Magicians studying magic for its own sake, in general, have multiple goals. Yes life enhancement, but also.. this game. The game of life… the WHY, the How of magic. It’s like a pet obsession, more than a quick fix. Know what happens when real magicians who 

....are not trying to sell you something and   
. . . unlike those who make it sound easier than it is do when they start to make a real big life change,

 Those magicians probably sit down with a project planner and map out the steps they need to take, just like you would. The difference is that the magician will use their techniques to build fortitude and a little luck in the process, using their own skillset as the canvas to work the results. Again, LIFE transformation, not magic pills. See the magic pills for what they are, bullshit marketing crap peddled to unwary or entitled people done with questionable ethical ideals. 
 Make the paints of your life, with the knowledge you learn, and use the magic as part of process that paints your life adventure.

Next week, I am going to go over some Sorcery on Mirror Spirit Traps (and potentially people) and how they work.

Need to start out your New Year getting your daily plans and strategy in a line with the greater goals you have.  Book a coaching session with Andrieh who is a fully licensed NLP practicing and hypnotherapist.  I can help you plan out your goals and achieve them from the envisioning stage all the way to success with making the transformations along the way be more powerful, easier and life affirming.

Offerings III: Symbiotic Intelligence versus Atomic Intelligence

What does intelligence look like from within a totally different perspective from our space and time existence? First, causality and story seem to be tied to time. We tell stories, and those stories that make sense generally fall into place in linear time within the rules of time and space as we know it. We relate to the beings within stories, and understand them through that metaphor. This does not mean that they perceive or interact with us in that sort of way, or that the interaction looks like human intelligence. I do not know what this intelligence looks like, but I can say with a different set of Time-Space perspective, it cannot look like ours.

In Offerings I and Offerings II blogs, I covered the biology of exchange, and the Space-Time quandary in part II, but now we get to some more interesting facts about offerings. If the magician forms a Space-Time bridge through active imagination, and links it to a physical altar, it does seem like the spirit world can do wonders and miracles. Sure, the offerings add to this resonance, but how?

In Hands On Chaos Magic, on page 334, I covered many techniques using Seed Crystals, and gave a rather intense explanation of how spirits could interact. Like most of the secrets revealed in plain sight in Hands On Chaos Magic, if you skim it, you miss it, and it only makes sense if you DO it. (Which also means those charming few who skimmed through on their way to trashing an Amazon review missed quite a bit.) The idea is simple. It’s how you make chocolate, steel, and sour dough bread. In Cat’s Cradle (Vonnegut), this is used to create water that freezes at 109 degrees F, because a different crystalline structure of water was introduced to the water. 

The idea is that adding a few crystals, of a previous batch of crystals, to a mixture of melted solid as it is cooling forces the melted solid to form in the same way as the crystals. I postulated in Hands On Chaos Magic that many of the ATR talismans work in this way. It’s also the way the Goetia seems to work with the different metal talismans. Feed the talismans the right offerings and it’s like adding melted liquid that solidifies, as part of what the entity can use at the Time-Space juncture of the altar. Of course, that means it has to be the right mixture of Chi to solidify the essence with the spirit.

A few interesting things happen with this process though. It’s not that you get the “pure entity”.  No. You get something like a third thing. You and the crystals form a 3rd structure, one that you interact with. In the ATR, we always refer to our spirits, our Legba, our Ogun etc. In Haitian Vodou, each spirit has various aspects associated with them, much like different crystal elements. So we know “Ogun is Ogun”, but there are slight variations between one person’s Ogun and another person’s, much like the general crystal “type” and the crystals we make. The ATR do not talk about “the spirit”, they talk about your own personal spirits. The language is important and it encapsulates a few things. Your Ogun is not my Ogun, even though they are Ogun. Likewise, your Paimon is not my Paimon. This is true for many spirits. That is important.  Outside of some politics, everyone has their own set spirits they have built up.

Now the thing about that is that what that entity is is no longer “pure”, having “mixed” or “bonded” with the practitioner. Once a Space-Time bridge is formed, and the spirit has significant Chi, they can act independently of the magician, however that spirit is actually interdependent on “their” magician. We talk to a spirit, we communicate with them. Isn't it possible they develop personality as they grow in the Space-Time juncture? Where do you think that personality comes from? Certainly some of the personality direction may have been part of the seed crystal, but I bet a bunch more comes from the magician. 

The entity that interacts with us and others is the part which exists outside the Time-Space constraints we live in, and has anthropomorphized and personalized attributes that are built via the ongoing relationship and interactions with the magician. Perhaps the spirit world gets something out of this, but who knows. This seed crystal metaphor seems to be a type of symbiotic intelligence that develops. In a way, it also explains why “good” spirits can do bad things in the hands of an ambivalent person who does feed the spirit correctly (adding the right “liquid Chi” to harden and give form). The morals, (a great deal of the personality), and more is built with the relationship with the magician and sustained by the physical bridge that magician maintains (the altar, talismans etc.)  In fact, the more Chi/quintessence/vitae the spirit has at the juncture point, the more personified it may seem (as there is more of the magician infused into its’ essence). In a group context, an entity will take on properties of the group and primary care taker.

So are the offerings enough?  Yes and No, actually. There is a lot to be said about the offerings, but a good deal of the strength in this process depends on the magician to go out and get a clear crystal. No, I don’t mean going down to your local shop and picking up a chunk of clear quartz, I mean getting a clear/clean vibrational base for “your” spirit. (Although you can certainly use a physical piece of clear quartz to be a touch point for the Space-Time juncture that you are building).  This is why so many books have detailed the exact ritual for a summoning.   Generally, the magician does not get this right and it takes several different attempts. In all actuality, there is a second Space-Time juncture that is formed outside of any altar, and that Space-Time juncture is in the physical brain of the magician (neuron changes), that solidify and harden around the memories associated with interactions with an entity. Yes, to change those neurons takes about 30 days.  And, guess what? People will start getting greater results if they have basic techniques down (like those you will find in Hands On Chaos Magic). That is probably the most effective way to create real relationships with your spirits. 

If you have really read Bardon, you can probably tell he has a very different method, and I have been accused of using this method more often than not. Bardon clearly sends his consciousness to where the spirit is, and directly pulls the “crystal flakes” to the physical world.  Of course, to “go where the spirits go” means to be able to exist without time or space, and also to be able to get back again. This is undoubtedly what shamans have done for thousands of years and then still, they would build up their spirit allies using similar methods.

If the physical talisman is strongly imbued with a clear information pattern, the process of growing happens fast. This depends almost entirely on the skill of the magician. Otherwise, the magician is interacting with the pattern (spirit) with a higher noise-to-signal ratio which slows down the process of the seed crystal growth, personification, and power. Clear crystal and signal plus lots of Chi = miracles happen. Remember, intimately and literally, the entity is part of the magician’s energy, brain, and probably even (in many cases) soul.

Why don’t magicians get rolled?
If it was only about the amount of attention given to a spirit, your average Christian should be able to easily roll any magician in a conflict of wills. The Christian god gets tons of attention.  The truth is usually the opposite, that the magician is doing the rolling. Why?

Because the magician is better able to form a Space-Time juncture point, and then build it up with the right vibrational vitae (offerings or directed energy work) to create a superior juncture point.  This symbiotic intelligence is why I think you can have two different spirits of the same type working against each other in a contest of wills. Some magicians are just better at infusing the juncture point with clear information, and form.

There may be effects that depend on how much thought energy an entity has taken, and it may be possible for an entity to have a spiritual reservoir. Hell, it may be possible for it to move Chi around from one juncture point to another (although I think this would depend on the stories around that entity).

But still, the personification and empowerment of the entity happens better if the magician has clear thought and energy while doing the work. EVERYTHING I said in Hands On Chaos Magic about mental practice, clear energy, signal and control applies here! 

If you have really read the last 3 blogs and really have read Hands On Chaos Magic, there is a tremendous amount of tangible magic hidden here. While I am not going to go into how to actually feed your particular talisman or entity, there is more than enough to think about as far as how you might go about doing just that. If you add a few points, such as the fact that servitors that are backed up and fed in a similar way show similar patterns of growth and physical manifestation. Just think on it. Then go out and TRY it! Remember, BE THE MAGIC!

Offerings part II: The Space-Time Quandary of Different Existence

Of course, the purely left hand path approach to all entities is that someone had to create it.  In fact, I heard this refrain uttered by multiple very high prominence PAGANS at a recent festival… and this tells you that, for the most part, Chaos Magic has won the hearts and minds of the pagan populace even though they still will throw around a lot of platitudes, and seem to hate calling themselves Chaos magicians (btw most Chaos magicians are somewhat agnostic, and wouldn’t make such a TRUTH claim).    Let’s again assume the assumptions:

  • The Spiritual Forces exist in some capacity outside of the individual mind. The religious magicians cry out, praise Jesus, but I am not finished yet.
  • The Spiritual Forces are not real, in the sense that they do not share the spatial, temporal, nor physical characteristics which define physical reality. While my assumption is that they exist, they cannot exist in any way comparable to our existence, meaning calling them “real” falsely implies anthropological traits that we ourselves apply.
  • Spiritual forces require some tie-in to the material plane to function and work in the material world. Usually this is a human magician, but certain classes of spirits may work independent of people by being tied to certain places, plants, etc. The religious will take open offense to this assumption, but in test after test after test, this is how in practice I have seen it work 99.9999999999999% of the time. That’s a hell of a lot of 9’s and when you take the romanticism out of the equation, I have kinda found this to be the case with everyone I have ever trained. BTW, that does not mean, we might not start aka at birth with some ties to certain spirits at birth. So maybe there is room for spirituality after all! :)
  • Spirits probably do not have an intelligence that looks or functions in a way similar to a human intelligence (although the dead might, but even then Time is an issue).

Notice, no where in this do I say it’s impossible that we created deity; it just does not matter.    If you’re going to say we created deity in platitudes, you should back it up by saying we don’t have a soul at the same time and ANY metaphor for anything spiritual is just that, just a metaphor working on your brain.  That’s what the Church of Satan does, and I can respect that.    So let’s go back to these assumptions.   One can, right off the bat, argue the Jungian perspective and claim we create them so they do not exist.   

However, that negates the observed result of physical offerings actually producing better results.  The mere fact that so many people can claim that physical offerings enhance results is the major problem to this idea.    Either we are all corrupting our Meta-belief system with an insidious mind virus (that offerings are required)  or the Jungian principle of “all in your head” simply fails to model the phenomenon correctly.  Likewise, if the biological exchange model was sufficient, service to a spirit should qualify as enough to get suitable results (btw service does enhance results too, just not as greatly as physical offerings).  This quandary suggests something more is afoot then the models allow.

If the entities are existent, outside of the individual mind (this does not imply a platonic structure of spirit, merely that informational patterns exist outside the individual mind), as an assumption and that that informational pattern exists in a different time space reference point (if it even has a Space-Time reference point), then what?

The Space-Time Quandary of Different Existence
Spirits seem to, in general, only partially affect our existence via the proxy of magicians/priests/shamans (outside of a few spirits which we will cover).  The reason, if you assume they exist in a state outside of our Time-Space continuum, how can they influence, with any meaningful results, our Space-Time continuum?  They would, in their natural state, probably have very little understanding of Time-Space aka Cause and Effect.   This would be a big claim, but consider the following:

Most African Traditional Religions require good character, but even a cursory poll of people would tell you that so many houses in Vodou, Palo and Santeria FUCK their members, or would be members, that it is CRAZY.  How can the spirits just watch and let it happen, consistently, it’s like they show no moral values?

Angels abound and yet the WICKED seem to constantly get ahead?
What the fuck, where is the smiting from God?  Whole religions based on serving the poor, and yet the truly wicked get away with literal murder?

Even crazy demons, shit why doesn’t shit seem to self-destruct more often, I mean really, if they had full control, it should be a much worse shitstorm, but its NOT.

Name a tradition where this does not apply.  You can claim it’s Divine Will, and I will say bullshit, that it’s Divine Will that someone gets molested or shit like that.  Norse, anything… its easier to explain this by saying they have NO knowledge of the events because of the Space-Time divide, and are limited by the perceptual basis of the people who allow them access to this world via MIND (we will get back to the physical offerings in a second).

There are so many examples of this idea.  Now add a magician to the mix and BOOM… results.  Why?

A simple answer to the above problems is that spirits do not exist in our Time-Space
continuum, and thus have very little knowledge of what actually goes on in this world until they have a Space-Time juncture point.    This, of course, means the magician acts as the Space-Time conjuncture point in part.    If you follow the logic of the Space-Time dissonance, it also follows why two spirits of the same time of spirit can exist in different spaces at exactly the same time.   Because the spirit does not have any sort of time constraints on it; because it’s existence does not involve the same kind of time structure’s ours do.    You could correctly say all spirit-based magic is a type of Time/Space magic.    In fact, if a person was so inclined to read Bardon, they might even agree with that.

Not only do we have a biological imperative of exchange, but the exchange provides a physical anchor in the Space-Time continuum for which a spirit CAN act.  

Now of course, if you were really wanting to argue the assumption that they exist outside of the individual mind, you probably could, but we have a few other unique occurrences which, again, tend to exist at least outside the individual mind.

  • In independent work with an entity,  people will find out that the same entity requests the same types of things (this is with no research on the entity).  For instance, Diana Paxson at Convocation 2015 mentioned one situation where two independent sources within the guild she works with determined the same colors for an entity.  I have heard many people working with “unverified” personal gnosis (ask me why I HATE this term with unmitigated passion), come to the same conclusions independently with no correspondence about either emerging or lesser known entities.
  • In preparing an Astral temple, with no instruction on any details in the temple, I was correctly able to identify the major themes of the temple, and structure of the temple for the Gentleman For Jupiter group.   I was not given any additional information, there was no way I could know that.  I have seen this similar experience happen several times to many many people.
  • Real magical Practitioners and devotees can almost always see/understand if another person is seriously working with an entity that they share in their personal framework.
  • In divinations, entities will pop up that the magician has no connection with or pre-knowledge of, yet when the person getting the reading is questioned, most of the time, they will say they have been investigating or have a relationship with that entity.

There are many many examples of these sorts of data points that pop up.  They should not be ignored or trivialized.  The idea that spirits existing outside of our Space-Time coordinates, and needing a bridge, still fits.  So that is the first stage of talking about altars and offerings, spirits need a Space-Time bridge.

This covers why spirits would make proxy points to magicians, right, but magicians are generally a completely unstable lot.  I mean, we go from point to point, concentrating and balancing different priorities, rarely is our intention focused in one direction.  This means that at best, a well trained magician is a very short focused bridge and if you work possession work like we do in Vodou, that is exactly what happens with a short Space-Time bridge that is complete.  

Understand the bridge is not just to the mind of the magician, as the mind is very close to the nature of spirit.  It is the physical body of the magician that ACTS as the Space-Time bridge as called in through the use of mind connection and active imagination.  Intention dictates energy direction and characteristics in the body.  Rarely will the magician be able to stay so in SYNC with an information pattern for a really long time, that it is a reliable talisman (but we will get to some examples maybe in part 4 or 5 at this point).

So it’s time in my extended thought explanation just to state a couple more assumptions about talismans, before I can move on.

First, LOTS of people get lots of results with talismans and they seem to have an outside of mind effect.  Again, we cannot fairly dismiss that datapoint.  

From tons and tons of experimental data, from tons and tons of magicians, let me state that most of the magicians will agree that talismans can hold an information pattern or intention which has a strength of signal.  Both the clarity and strength of the talismans depends on a lot of different factors beyond the scope of these blog posts but that said, it means that physical options can be imbued with energy patterns.  These physical things, while not as powerful as direct magician involvement, certainly must be more stable as they do not self-generate opposing intention vectors.  AKA they FIX and hold the same intention, and within the scope of the argument, act as a Space/Time bridge with greater stability.   Clearly this, in a nutshell, explains physical altars and talismans, but does not yet get to the offering parts. Although that last part of physical offerings because ambivalent, depending on how good the magician is at pushing energy/intention and binding it to physical objects.  So for example, my ancestors really do like the vibration of Coffee, but they will always accept me performing Reiki work on and at the altar, to give them energy to work with.  It gets bound into their reservoir (the altar) to pull from.   Physical offerings work in a similar way, in that if you are using those offerings on their Space-Time bridge, they can drain the energy or the capacity for amplitude to themselves.

You can try this with a friendly spirit you have a relationship with.   Create a physical space.  Give them a food offering.  Tell them you want to understand.  Save some of the food offering  (and do not place it down on the altar).  Place some of the food on the altar.  Notice the difference.  Unless the spirit is trying to be nice to you, the food might taste bland, or just something about it off.  Respectfully, you have to ask the entity to do this.  Sometimes, with the dead, you might get sick from the food.. so be prepared to banish.   Make clear your intention is that you want to understand what happens with the food.  IF a spirit won’t work with you in this capacity (aka get permission), ask a different one.  If you try this, you’ll understand exactly what I mean.   The only problem being that the spirit might give you some of their energy in exchange, ask them not to..  (if they like you that’s how it should be, but that won’t help you learn in this case).

This also gets to WHY certain foods for certain spirits.  Simply put, spirits are informational patterns in a way, and as such, only certain patterns of physical material increase the resonance of the spirit itself.  That is why certain spirits will request certain foods and offerings once a bridge is made.  They are telling you what will add to their spiritual amperage to influence the physical world because not all resonances will.  That is probably a simplification, but with some thought it will take you a VERY long way.
