Se a pessoa não é médium como "negociar" com o Daemon?

Religious business.

Se a pessoa não é médium como "negociar" com o Daemon?


Num fórum alguém perguntou a respeito deste assunto, mas usando outra palavra: como poderia fazer “comércio” com um Daemon sem ter qualidades de vidência.
Achei oportuno observar isso.

Primeiro, por causa da abordagem. Veja a palavra usada: "comerciar" com o daemon. Como se fosse uma simples negociata vulgar.
A relação com algum espírito em magia em hipótese alguma se trata de "comércio", sejam daemons, anjos, espíritos planetários, etc.
Pensar que seja apenas uma transação comercial com o espírito é algo realmente desrespeitoso e uma maneira muito mundana de se pensar a respeito.

Pode ser que isso seja por causa da imagem popular infelizmente comum no hemisfério ocidental, devido a algumas terreiras de religião africana (ATR – African Traditional Religions) onde entidades mau doutrinadas fazem ofertas no estilo “me dá uma bebida e uma oferenda X que eu faço tal coisa”. Lamento, nem sempre tais entidades vão cumprir, estão apenas sendo oportunistas. O que podem oferecer é para “ajudar” na questão, não mais que isso. E eu sou Babalorixá de Candomblé, então essa é minha opinião.
E de maneira ampla, em qualquer área de magia ninguém pode assegurar resultados.
Repito o exemplo que apresentei noutras postagens: nem médicos, advogados, etc. podem assegurar algo.
Magia não é comércio com os espíritos. Em nenhuma hipótese você vai comprar um resultado.
Os espíritos também tem seu preço em várias formas, trabalho a ser preparado, materiais adequados, as vezes oferendas específicas, E da mesma forma na parte humana existe sim uma parte formal que é o trabalho profissional, que tanto eu quanto outros fazem e aí estarei colocando minha experiência pessoal, tempo de trabalho a realizar, materiais., livros, etc. Se você precisar de um encanador na sua casa eu duvido que vá questionar pelo simples fato de que este cobre pelo seu trabalho. Em termos muito básicos, é isso.

Mas quanto aos espíritos, não importa quem está lidando com eles. Você ou alguém que execute essa atividade.
É sempre necessário ser respeitoso com os espíritos e estes também deverão obrigatoriamente agir assim com você.
Uma coisa importantíssima a observar é perguntar ao espírito se ele “pode fazer” tal coisa (mesmo que esteja na descrição dele), e depois perguntar se ele “aceita” a tarefa.
Outra coisa que aprendemos com os anos é sempre pedir para que o espírito traga orientação e até sugestão se houver outra maneira de lidar com o assunto. Muitas e muitas vezes eu comecei com um espírito que indicou outro completamente diferente para o caso. Inclusive de áreas muito diferentes o que certamente resultou em rituais feitos em dias diferentes e numa sequência de eventos bem interessantes.
É importante lembrar que os espíritos dos grimórios são antiquíssimos, boa parte deles foram os deuses das antigas civilizações. Eles têm milhares e milhares de anos e conhecem todos aspectos humanos. Ou seja, não se trata de algo como as entidades das muitas linhas que cultuam espíritos de mortos, incluindo muitas linhas africanas, que já tiveram encarnações humanas. Estes são bem recentes e limitados em relação aos demais. Para alguns historiadores, só lá por 900 DC (ou até depois) as religiões africanas começaram a ter um formato mais específico, e isso também devido aos contatos com europeus de quem aprenderam várias de suas práticas que foram assimiladas por eles. Ou seja, são muitos recentes.

Anjos e daemons nunca encarnaram, jamais tiveram uma vida humana e sua percepção das coisas por mais que seja atualizada ao nos observar, terá sempre uma diferença enorme.

Então, voltemos à questão da maneira de abordagem. Por que esses espíritos teriam contato ou sequer atenderiam um tratamento desrespeitoso? Repito, isto vale para todas esferas assim como nas áreas das relações humanas.

Imagine uma pessoa desejar um encontro pessoal romântico com alguém. Sabe apenas seu nome, mas procura aqui e ali e consegue o telefone. E prontamente faz sua chamada, para alguém que nem conhece, e já pede qual o preço para que venha correndo até sua casa para satisfazer suas fantasias?  Uhm? Infelizmente é como a maioria dos novatos agem em relação aos espíritos.

Então repito, os espíritos dos Grimórios são na maioria das vezes muito evoluídos, não importa em qual área, mas muito antigos. De maneira alguma estão dispostos a ajudar alguém facilmente e muito menos vão aceitar um tratamento desrespeitoso. E isso não tem nada a ver com oferendas, que podem ser boas, mas nem sempre. Alguns espíritos literalmente sentem-se profundamente ofendidos se receberem qualquer oferenda e vão responder de acordo.

Enfim, isso não é comércio. É uma conversa entre duas partes para chegarem a um acordo em comum. No máximo, até uma negociação, mas nunca algo tão simples como "comprar" uma tarefa deles.


Event
Art by: Marek Purzycki - Poland


É preciso vidência?

Agora vamos a questão de ser ou não clarividente, médium, etc.
Na prática nem todas pessoas vão ter percepções de qualquer tipo durante os rituais. Muito menos manifestações visuais ou sensoriais do espírito e muito raramente presenças físicas.
E mesmo os mais desenvolvidos também não terão eventos significativos com frequência, geralmente serão manifestações menores as quais presta-se atenção auxiliada pelo treinamento ao longo de anos de trabalho.
Essa é uma posição também apresentada por muitos grandes magistas que conheço.

Porém boa parte de certos relatos que vejo pela internet e em tantos livros populares, estão na área da pura fantasia mental e são facilmente verificadas.

O que ocorre nos rituais, e quando ocorre, são manifestações diversas, e aí sim, com o tempo a pessoa vai também estar desenvolvendo sua própria percepção, intuição e até a visão de 3º olho e associar as coisas. É um aprendizado.
Assim, a primeira coisa é aprender a reconhecer o que parece ser apenas intuição, uma idéia que surge na mente da pessoa, mas em resposta a algo que está sendo feito ou tratado.
Mesmo que esteja usando o espelho de visualização ou a esfera de cristal e outros recursos.
A imagem ou intuição pode durar apenas uma fração de segundo apenas.
E são estas manifestações que vamos aprendendo a observar e na medida que tenhamos outros resultados que confirmem nossas impressões, também se desenvolve confiança no que se está fazendo.
E é claro, sempre faça uma leitura de Tarot ou outro oráculo para confirmar se você está no caminho certo. A pior coisa é confiar demais apenas na intuição e com isso perder o rumo por excesso de auto-confiança.

Antes de qualquer ritual, o ideal é fazer uma leitura, Tarot ou outro oráculo que você domine para averiguar o que pode ser feito e algumas respostas prévias dos espíritos a serem evocados.
Depois poderão vir sonhos, e esta é uma manifestação típica, mas nem sempre as pessoas sabem reconhecer sua simbologia e é um aspecto de aprendizado também.
Com o tempo, se aprende a aprende a reconhecer cada área pois é comum que os tipos de sonhos tenham alguns aspectos distintos, como tipo de ambiente, luminosidade, tipo de lugar, vilas escuras ou lugares fantásticos, etc.
De uma maneira geral, e aqui uma sugestão para os que tem dificuldades em lembrar dos sonhos, é observar qual é a “sensação” que fica com você ao despertar. Mesmo que não se lembre do sonho, é bem comum acordar com uma determinada sensação de que foi um sonho bom, estranho ou até mau. Esta sensação já é um grande resultado. E se lembrar dos eventos do sonho, melhor.

Nota: Uma sugestão é trabalhar com o Arcanjo Gabriel, que rege a esfera da Lua e ajuda muito nos planos espirituais e mundo dos sonhos. Faça uma oração ao deitar pedindo sua proteção e que ele seja guia naqueles planos trazendo clareza. Outros trabalhos para sonhos, incluindo certos Salmos específicos também funcionam muito bem.

Outra coisa que poderá ocorrer após os rituais, são os sinais, coincidências e eventos ocorrendo na sua vida diária e que de alguma forma ajudarão a intuição que está se desenvolvendo para perceber que vieram por parte dos espíritos com os quais se trabalhou.
Pessoalmente eu tenho de 3 dias a uma semana para sinais iniciais indicando que a energia está em andamento e como. Muitas vezes já tenho sonhos desde o primeiro dia simplesmente indicando que houve a presença dos espíritos.
E claro, nos próximos dias seguintes ao ritual, fazer uma nova leitura de Tarot, etc. para consultar sobre o andamento do trabalho realizado e analisar isso.

Voltando ao momento da execução do ritual em si, as manifestações mais comuns são flashes de luz, mudanças drásticas na luminosidade do ambiente, aromas completamente diferentes dentro do ambiente, percepção ou sensação de uma presença, sombras rápidas aqui e ali. Sons diversos dentro do ambiente também. Sensações corporais, algum tipo de pressão sobre o corpo, desconfortos diversos, sendo a coceira na pele algo muito popular. Tanto que tivemos um tópico noutro fórum apenas sobre estas coceiras na pele que alguns descrevem como se fossem formiguinhas caminhando em cima da pessoa.
Insetos podem aparecer também e apresentando comportamentos muito estranhos, alguns insistindo em mostrar uma determinada direção, ou parecendo surgir ou desaparecer no meio do ar. 

Mas as vezes ocorrem experiências fantásticas mesmo. Já tive manifestações visuais e bem físicas de espíritos, incluindo toda sala desaparecer e eu me ver no meio de uma espécie de neblina, com vento e a única coisa visível era o próprio círculo onde estava, que parecia estar no meio de um imenso nada e flutuando e eu não enxergava nem as velas ao redor, apenas sua luz dentro do círculo e as formas espirituais que se apresentaram. Noutra porque eu coloquei uma vela numa posição errada e apareceu uma espécie de machado no ar que apagou, ou melhor, literalmente achatou o pavio da vela e o barulho da pancada foi bem audível e a cera ficou marcada como se tivesse sido pressionada.

Outro tipo de evento que pode acontecer são as distorções de tempo e que parece ser um pouco mais frequente. Basicamente tem dois tipos. Em um pequeno número de relatos, inclusive meu, pode-se observar que tudo parece estar se movendo em câmera lenta, incluindo a chama das velas e a fumaça do incenso, ou muito rapidamente, estranho mesmo e sem qualquer sensação de vento na sala. Já o outro mais comum, será percebida após o ritual ao se olhar novamente no relógio. Por exemplo, a operação pode ter sido rápida e objetiva, digamos uns 10 minutos. Ai sair da sala descobre-se que passou mais de uma hora e vice versa. Eu tive rituais que foram longuíssimos, com muitas partes, longas conjurações e, ao sair da sala descobri que haviam se passado apenas poucos minutos.E eu digo conjurações de muitas páginas. Realmente longas e mais toda a parte durante a manifestação do espírito.
Percepções locais de mudança de clima junto com distorções de tempo também podem ocorrer. Por exemplo, de repente parece que do lado de fora da sala é um dia ensolarado (isto no meio da noite), ou vice versa. Ou barulho de vento e até tempestade num dia absurdamente calmo, barulhos no telhado e com certeza não era nem pessoas nem gatos (meus cães dariam alerta no ato).
Ou dentro da sala ficar muito frio ou muito quente. E vento. Eu digo, ter vento dentro de uma sala fechada. Tudo geralmente muito rápido e terminam quando se fazem os banimentos sempre necessários.
E claro, pode ocorrer que este vento seja justamente para “soprar” as anotações do ritual e até as ferramentas para fora do círculo de proteção e aí tanto pode ser o espírito conjurado quanto algum intruso e neste caso é absolutamente necessário estar preparado para lidar com a situação, ou seja, um ataque de espíritos, pois em hipótese alguma se pode sair do círculo. Neste caso podem ocorrer sensações muito desagradáveis, o suficiente para fazer a pessoa literalmente se mijar nas calças ou até sair correndo de medo. Um simples motivo pelo qual eu não aceito assistentes para um ritual. Já me incomodei até com pessoas supostamente preparadas. Isso não é show de circo e pode ser bem perigoso as vezes.

Ou seja, o praticante deverá estar preparado para exorcizar o que estiver acontecendo até ter segurança novamente sobre a situação. Deixar de observar isso pode ser altamente desagradável e demorar muito tempo, até meses para ser finalmente solucionado.
Relatos de pessoas com problemas deste tipo e por longo tempo nos foruns de debates é o que não falta. Pode ter sido até uma simples vela colocada numa encruzilhada que tantos apregoam facilmente por aí. 
Essa é uma falha infelizmente comum entre os novatos. Começar algo sem saber o que fazer para encerrar e limpar a bagunça toda.
Outra coisa que pode acontecer nos rituais são os eventos externos. E aqui lembrando que o ideal sugerido em muitos grimórios é fazer a operação em áreas bem afastadas de outros seres humanos. Quem tiver esta oportunidade, é claro deverá se precaver também, mas pelo menos não vai prejudicar outros.
Mas como tantos, eu trabalho em casa, num bairro habitado.
E como tantos, eu também tenho vizinhos que não são exatamente o que chamamos de “boas pessoas”. 
O círculo ritual e a sala que tenho especificamente para este uso são preparados para meu trabalho, e também algumas prevenções ao redor de toda casa. Mas apesar disto, o que houver do lado externo da área de evocação não reconhece paredes e pode sim, afetar os demais moradores da casa e toda vizinhança próxima.

Então, para quem tem família e especialmente crianças e animais de estimação, por favor tenham o redobrado cuidado ao fortalecer suas defesas pois outros poderão ser facilmente atingidos.
E aí um simples motivo pelo qual além de lavar minha casa com ervas, eu também lavo toda rua em frente, basicamente com um regador de jardim usando uma forte mistura de ervas. E as vezes apenas pétalas de rosas (energia de amor e força espirtual). Estou buscando proteger a mim e a outros e principalmente, também fazendo um serviço público, pois as pessoas que passam pela rua também vão ser beneficiadas com a energia das ervas e evocações que faço durante a lavagem.
Tanto que as pessoas do bairro aprenderam pelas conversas que tenho com eles, ao passar por aqui limpam bem os pés onde estiver molhado para trazer boas energias como amor e prosperidade. Mas isto também vai estar banindo outras energias negativas deles e muitos são drogados ou tem outros problemas. Depois observo os resultados em suas vidas pessoais e alguns são bem interessantes.
Claro que lavar a rua, uma área pública, também pode atrair energias para que faz isto, portanto, não tente fazer se não estiver preparado para lidar com as forças que vai encontrar ali. É sempre necessário limpar a si mesmo depois de fazer isto.

Aqui o exemplo prático é que ao proteger minha casa pode acontecer que a energia intrusa que não conseguir entrar aqui aproveite para atacar o vizinho (efeito rebote) e isso resultar num problema que de forma indireta pode me prejudicar. Então, goste ou não dos vizinhos, é melhor proteger eles também. Se houver outros problemas com estas pessoas, que sejam tratados de outra forma.

Assim outro aspecto até mais importante do que se preocupar em ter “mediunidade” ou percepção astral é que durante qualquer ritual, mesmo que seja uma simples magia com oração e velas, existem os espíritos intrusos que podem aparecer a qualquer momento e vão tentar se alimentar da energia apresentada e causar problemas.
Neste caso, podem ser percebidos imediatamente na sala de trabalho pela sua negatividade. Mas poderão ser comuns sons e distúrbios fora da sala usada como templo. De repente as pessoas da casa passarem mal, as crianças começarem a chorar de sem motivo aparente, explodir uma briga na casa dos vizinhos, os cachorros da casa enlouquecerem contra alguém na cerca (já fui olhar e latiam para o ar aparentemente vazio mas eu percebia o que era). Ou pode mesmo aparecerem pessoas estranhas pela rua (como mendigos, bêbados e drogados e outros facilmente manipulados por espíritos obsessores, etc.), ou uma rua normalmente vazia ter um repentino movimento de carros e motocicletas fazendo muito barulho, etc. E repetindo isso, as pessoas da casa podem ser imediatamente afetadas. E repito, especialmente se houver crianças tenha muito cuidado. Mais um motivo para se levar as proteções e banimentos muito a sério.

Enfim, para todas estas manifestações durante o ritual com o tempo aprendemos a observar e entender porque ocorrem.
E junto com estas, também teremos respostas dos espíritos muitas vezes, justamente por causa daqueles pequenos “flashes” de intuição que podem ocorrer ou estarem relacionados a algum tipo de manifestação que ocorra.

Sem grandes efeitos visuais, mas principalmente com o “como” nos sentimos ao realizar o ritual e os posteriores eventos.
Tudo isso somado é que vai levar a um melhor aprimoramento de sua prática e aprendizado.
Estude, faça anotações, planeje, faça o melhor que puder dentro de seus recursos e principalmente, evite os atalhos aparentemente fáceis pois podem ser armadilhas.

A Consultation For An Adventure. The Three Cards Tarot Reading.

I love how Hagar and Eddie appears happy at this image.
Copyright to Dik Browne and King Features Syndicate, Inc.


Hagar is one of my favorites.

He is not that typical hero.
He is just a normal man, but already he is the leader of his group and a proud Viking.

Well, he is not exactly that kind of "normal" man.
He goes into other lands, have fights and even against dragons.

And more, he is a loved husband with a wife, a daughter and a son, each one with their own aspects and interests to deal with.

Everyone who have a family knows this is already a lot of compromises to deal with.

Just think about Elga, his beloved wife. She is not just caring about home.
For sure no! Elga knows her husband is a warrrior and watch for him the same way about her children.


When Hagar himself goes to get a reading, there's more than the funny or just curious aspect.

At our lives sometimes we need the opinion from others about what we are doing and to check our steps.

This is a reason for the readings for an adventure.
What are the possibilities, the choices and options to deal with, what is behind that, some to learn, etc.

With the Tarot, there's a popular reading scheme using just three cards for such things.
This will vary a bit for each case.
The most popular assignments to each card at the triple scheme are:
Past, present, future.
Situation, Current events, Outcome.
The adventure, how to deal, what probably coming.
Etc.

These are just some basic patterns, but the one doing the reading may be able to deal with that as a phrase or a full block of ideas to work more. 


So what to expect?
First, to understand what is the current environment. What is the reason, how you was before trying your attempt? What happened in the past? What is the reason for the reading?
Second, is the process to deal with it. How to work, what to observe or is needed to learn. Or the current events and the need to learn more about.

Finally at third position, some possible results or what is the possible environment or challenges coming.


Simple? Uhm, not just so.

Here is why I explore more at my readings and a reason I do a lot more in my work, not just the basics. I can't be quiet when there's more to say. Sometimes I can only suggest something more, for sure I won't be stupid for that kind of opportunist clients. And sorry, I have to cite such ones who pretend I enter into a war for free.

For each card and position we find lots of possibilities to explore and learn about life and all the background related to each case.
So at first position, why such events happened? Was that a reason to start with such doubt or there are something hidden to discover?

The next position talks about how to deal, or how things are moving. In no ways means people have to become static. No! This is the action time. This is when people will be acting to explore, develop, learning and even changing any possible outcome.
Here I will explore more, to see whats happening, what is unseen, what is needed to learn. 

Then, the next card, the third, means what is possible to happens only and only if the person does nothing to change that. So, that is not a garantee for some possible future, but what energies are ready to receive the current events.

For another point of view, sometimes the third card is not pointing for some "future events".  I say at some cases the third card is a resource tool, to show where to point our resources and work. a goal to work after.


And again, I will be exploring more about what such goal means and back to the first card, how that is related to the person. Here a reason a like to make a more complete reading observing the numerology aspects.
Any reading watching for future events (in my opinion) may observe what is the person's main goal in life. An d this is very related to the numerology study I will do only once since the first reading, and such information is for an entire life.

We can get direct information even from a simple one or a three cards reading, or whatever method.
The most important is the client to get all needed information as possible.

Feiticeiros e Magistas, mas uma vida comum

Algumas coisas parecem impossíveis. Ou é apenas a maneira de fazer?
Arte: Impossible nail-through-wood trick - by Steve Ramsey.



Feiticeiros e Magistas, mas uma vida comum

Estava lendo alguns comentários humorísticos num site da internet que se dedica justamente a observar como certas situações na área da magia são realmente engraçados dependendo do ponto de vista e algumas postagens as vezes tem um teor mais crítico ou bem incisivo.
Em todo caso acho interessante lembrar uma coisa absolutamente simples: nós somos pessoas normais e até comuns.
Quer dizer, pelo menos eu certamente me considero uma pessoa bem normal e comum de uma forma geral.
Vejamos, eu tenho todo tipo de problemas que a maioria das pessoas tem, independente do país em que vivem.
Nalguns países existem muito mais problemas é claro, mas de uma forma geral, eu posso afirmar que ter problemas pessoais, familiares, financeiros, sexuais, políticos, saúde ou porque seu time esportivo favorito está perdendo de novo o campeonato, etc. é algo que faz parte de nossa vida humana.
Mas então as pessoas observam que somos praticantes e estudiosos das artes ocultas. Os grandes mistérios e praticamos atividades em magia que podem revelar maravilhas ou nos colocar em contato com algumas coisas horripilantes.
Porém seria isso algo tão diferente assim?
Ter as vezes visões maravilhosas ou enxergar garras monstruosas aparecendo de entre as árvores enquanto caminhamos na rua só porque nos metemos nalguma confusão seria algo tão perturbador assim?
Sim, isso pode acontecer.
E qual é o problema?
Eu sinceramente acho muito mais engraçado as pessoas passarem na frente da banca de jornais e ali estarem estampadas as barbaridades que os políticos fazem! (risos).
Será que lidar com os demônios da Goetia é algo tão terrível assim para sermos até perseguidos as vezes por certas religiões e igrejas enquanto alguns ministros destes mesmos grupos chutam a pontapés um inocente cachorro abandonado na rua só porque estava na porta da igreja deles? E aqui citando uma situação que eu vi pessoalmente e amaldiçoei eles aos gritos no mesmo momento.
E infelizmente algo muito comum são os autoproclamados “muito bons” que encontramos em qualquer área da vida. Apresentam-se superconfiantes, plenamente resolvidos, fazem um marketing incrível sobre si mesmos. Mas é apenas uma máscara, portanto em seu trabalho também falta a verdade.
Mas geralmente nós é quem somos considerados diferentes.
Por ter um interesse por aprender mais sobre esse imenso Universo em que vivemos.
Depois por acreditar que a vida humana é muito mais do que nossos meros problemas comuns.
E aqui de novo, é claro que nós também estamos sujeitos as mesmas Leis Naturais.
A diferença é que não nos conformamos com uma vida limitada.
Aqueles que buscam o aprendizado e a prática das ciências ocultas também estarão vivendo dentro dessa mesma realidade e buscando por mudanças.

Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se Manifeste.

Angel Magick
Digital Art by Amelie-the-Fox - Hong Kong

Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se Manifeste

Faz tempo que penso em escrever sobre um aspecto citado no livro da Jamie Sams, chamado "As Cartas do Caminho Sagrado" (Ed. Rocco) que além de oráculo considero muito interessante para auto-conhecimento e aprendizado.
Basicamente o livro e suas cartas abordam os ensinamentos de vários povos nativos norte-americanos.
O aspecto que quero citar é da carta "Roda do Arco-Íris", que fala da Unidade e Consciência da Totalidade.




Enquanto eu preparava este material, Brother Moloch publicou um excelente artigo, Lying About the Truth (Mentindo sobre a verdade) onde comenta sobre as mentiras do mundo e como acabam fazendo parte de nossas vidas e a maneira com que lidamos com ela.

Aqui eu quero comentar sobre a busca da verdade como parte de um caminho pessoal.


Os Doze Ciclos da Verdade para que a Paz se manifeste.

A tradução da edição brasileira infelizmente omite uma destas e por isso cito aqui o mesmo, mas extraído de uma entrevista com uma famosa anciã do povo Seneca,  a Vovó Twylah Hurd Nitsch.
"Meu avô me ensinou a seguir os Doze ciclos da verdade e os caminhos da paz para preservar minha totalidade e me ajudar a caminhar em equilíbrio e cumprir a missão da minha vida. Eles são: aprender a Verdade, honrar a Verdade, conhecer a Verdade, ver a Verdade, ouvir a Verdade, falar a Verdade, amar a Verdade, servir a Verdade, viver a Verdade, trabalhar a Verdade, compartilhar a Verdade e ser grato por a verdade. O Caminho da Paz está vivendo em harmonia com esta filosofia antiga ".

Eu conheci este livro nos anos 90, e como não tinha acesso a edição original, acabei por procurar qual seria a parte faltante e concluí que seria "ser verdadeiro". Mas a a parte que faltava, só muito depois descobri ser "ouvir a verdade". Ser verdadeiro é apenas um resultado da aplicação em nossa vida destes aspectos.
Ouvir a verdade. Leia os itens acima novamente. Pode parecer um pequeno detalhe mas isto fez muita diferença para mim. E é a partir daqui que continuo este texto.



Muitas pessoas associam o ocultismo com espiritualismo ou que sejam parte de alguma religião.
Mas não é bem assim.
O ocultismo basicamente é uma linha de estudo e práticas a respeito do paranormal, etc. e que não necessariamente faz parte das tradicionais linhas científicas e até mesmo é proibido em certas religiões.
É o estudo do oculto, aquilo que não é revelado de forma mundana. Sugiro que você se divirta procurando primeiro de tudo, os significados mais básicos nos dicionários formais de seu idioma. Só depois olhe e compare as muitas definições que vai encontrar nos muitos livros dessa área.

Muitas áreas do ocultismo são também parte das linhas espiritualistas e tantas religiões.
Daí ser normal uma certa confusão em relação ao significado e aplicação destas palavras.

Para praticar magia não precisa ser espiritualista ou meditar.
Da mesma forma, uma pessoa espiritualista pode não aceitar a magia.
E uma pessoa religiosa pode considerar a magia algo normal. Vide as religiões africanas, Taoistas ou simplesmente o uso dos Salmos nas tradições de origem cristãs.
E ao mesmo tempo, mesmo pessoas destas religiões não aceitam a magia por algum motivo.

Assim temos a magia baseada em espíritos, anjos, divindandes, etc. tanto quanto existe uma linha chamada de "modelo psicológico" da magia, em que seus praticantes não acreditam na existência de espíritos e acham que tudo está dentro da mente das pessoas.
Pessoalmente eu discordo do modelo psicológico por experiência pessoal. Citando um comentário de Rufus Opus, seria preciso ser muito narcisista para pensar que todo Universos já está dentro da mente da própria pessoa.

A maneira como percebemos as coisas tem a ver com o nosso próprio desenvolvimento nas diversas áreas da vida.
Assim, mesmo que não seja espiritualista, de alguma maneira os ocultistas também vão ter um desenvolvimento nessa área mesmo que não sigam certas práticas ou busquem por isso. Apenas vai ser algo que vai acontecer com o tempo a medida que aprendem mais, estudam e passam a observar tantas coisas relativas ao mundo e suas energias que assim acabam por ter também um desenvolvimento nestes aspectos.


E assim falamos de desenvolvimento pessoal.
Eu tenho uma linha espiritual que começou primeiro pelos aspectos mentalistas, cartesianos. Livros, estudos, práticas que podem ser feitas até de forma mecânica se houver todo o necessário esforço e aprendizado para isso.
Mas ao mesmo tempo, fui percebendo que isso estava relacionado a energias do mundo e apesar de ter dificuldades em fazer uma conexão entre resultados e as coisas que observava, já percebia que havia algo mais, as forças espirituais. Apenas não sabia como lidar com elas e continuei por muito tempo usando a minha mente, como principal canal de manifestação, mesmo que já tivesse uma percepção quanto a outras forças atuantes no universo.
Certamente minha vida era bem mundana e com tanta informação certamente era um estranho lidar com as pessoas nessa vida em busca de outros horizontes.
Então descobri a meditação e meu Mestre e fiz uma guinada drástica na minha vida da noite para o dia. Uma experiência que já relatei nos foruns de magia. 

O principal foi perceber que o único que poderia mudar era a mim mesmo. E começou a grande caminhada descobrindo a cada dia outros aspectos e pontos de vista a serem estudados e conhecidos.
Aprendi a meditar, observar o mundo, a quebrar dogmas e paradigmas que eu carregava comigo tanto pela formação social e familiar, quanto pelos meus próprios estudos que até então apenas tinham sido informação que eu não sabia realmente como usar.
Meditação tornou-se parte da minha vida assim como estar aberto a experiência, não aquela das crenças, mas minhas próprias experiências. Descobrir o novo, questionar, aprender, observar e experimentar. É por isso que digo que falo a partir de minhas próprias vivências. Eu gosto de estudar, sempre tive paixão pelos livros, por estudar outras vidas e como as pessoas conseguiram seus resultados. Mas isso é informação que pode ser útil certamente, mas quando você mesmo faz suas experiências arrisca-se a descobrir outros aspectos e novos horizontes.

E perceber o quanto a magia está relacionada a isso nos seus múltiplos aspectos.
Ver, ouvir, respeitar, ser grato, etc.

Como citei ao início, a magia para mim também é parte da busca espiritual, de uma maneira de viver e sentir a vida. Um ponto de vista pessoal certamente, pois continuo sendo um buscador do eterno, de perceber a vida em todos seus aspectos e a magia é para mim uma maneira de nos ligarmos ao todo, em suas múltiplas manifestações.



Novamente vemos como certas denominações tem mais de um sentido, como por exemplo a Alquimia, que tanto é uma área da magia quanto também se refere a alquimia interior, a transformação espiritual.


Assim nos tornamos ativos em relação a existência e não apenas mero espectadores.

Depois de muitas vivências nestas décadas, percebi que algo estava faltando quando busquei os doze ciclos da verdade como algo a trabalhar em mim mesmo.
E foi justamente o citado ao início: "ouvir a verdade". Eu percebia as coisas, procurava observar os aspectos. Mas de uma certa forma não estava realmente ouvindo. E por causa disso, tantas vezes eu pensei ter sido vítima de minha própria compaixão ao permitir que tantas coisas acontecessem ou fossem feitas em relação a mim, até mesmo me prejudicando.
Mas na verdade, eu estava recebendo a informação, mas não estava "ouvindo".
Portanto, não foi apenas compaixão. Foi não dar a necessária atenção ao que me era apresentado.
E certamente fiz muitas escolhas e tomei decisões erradas e que afetaram primeiro a mim e noutras vezes as pessoas que eu amava.
Ouvimos as coisas e ainda assim, optamos por diversas razões, a seguir outras opções. Chame isso de compaixão, paciência ou escolhas pessoais. Mas seguir o caminho do "bem" as vezes também significa ter que agir contra aqueles que buscam nosso mal. 

O importante é manter a busca para realizar em nossa própria vida estes doze ciclos da verdade.

Um único aspecto pode fazer muita diferença em tudo o que vamos descobrir e aprender. São as bases para que tenhamos raízes sólidas naquilo que fazemos.

Isso tem muito a ver com a própria Roda da Vida do Tarot quando nos apresenta seus aspectos evolutivos e involutivos e faz parte do processo de cura de nossos aspectos pessoais para uma vida harmoniosa.

Quando deixamos de perceber algum aspecto, ou fazemos escolhas, isso pode até nos desviar de nosso caminho e teremos outras experiências que por um lado vão adicionar mais informações sobre o que podemos entender como certo ou errado, ou como adequadas ou não aos objetivos maiores que tenhamos em vida.

Mas o principal é nunca desistir de buscar a verdade. E ser grato por ela.

Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Giorello by Araminta.

Free Online or Doing Readings For Yourself With Quality

Many times in life we need to do a reading for ourselves or get a free reading.

Be sure I needed it a lot of times as I'm a normal human being and sometimes I was not able to pay for a professional work with the ones I respect a lot due their vision.

At another post I comment more about Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings?

Now I will add more about and using thre readings at internet or something elese. 


When we have a personal reading the first is the ideas about how the symbols are presented by someone else doing it for us. And since the beginning in the 70s, I used to observe the cards and symbols to get what they was looking for. So I was looking to the cards and symbols presented, not just to the person behind me. This helped me to learn very early about the "general image" idea for a reading, not just the former texts, but how that was like a kind of "scenario" to the situation presented.
As I had working for my spiritual developmente early, with time I was able to "sense" when there was a real "ray of light" coming from some spiritual level or not.
Since the first readings I had, I loved a lot the ones where I learned about what their was doing just observing the way and how some shown to be so great. Like to learn how to do a great reading just using only one card and I posted about at the post "Extreme Tarot Readings and Some of The Art Behind It".

A great Oracle/Tarot reading is not that one when you only listen "easy words", but when it really present what you need to know, why and for what. Another reason with time I found to work in my personal works to study and develop myself to present "guidance", instead of just talking about current events nor to be limited to the symbols I get during a reading.


Reading for yourself. Keep out of the interpretation!

When we do a reading for ourselves the better is to work as doing a reading to someone else, an unknown one.

Why? Think for a moment.

May be the first problem reading for yourself is the "lust for results"?

No! The first matter, not a problem is you need to have courage to deal with it.

Courage! You must be like a spiritual warrior after your own freedom, your life!

To many people (adepts of sin IMHO) talk that is not good to try a reading for yourself. Some texts I had read even goes really worst and try to say it's like a "sin" if you do a reading for yourself.

I fully disagree. 


The main challenge is when you do a reading for yourself, and too often you will be lusting for results.
We are humans, so why not have the desire for a "nice reply"? But is needed to be ready to accept things can be different and so have the needed courage to accept it.



The same as using an online tool for a reading at internet, this means you must be able to be apart, and think more about what you got.

So, always get the first reading to study. Be using your own cards or an online tool.

Think about this phrase: "if you want to see, be ready to what you get".

For sure there are a lot of bad online tools. Or better, there's a lot of really very bad online tools.
Not much different if you is not skilled at oracle reading and try using it by yourself without studying more.

If you are studying an oracle and doing your own reading, never feel shame to have your books aside to research more about what you get.
If you are not using such online tools, you is the one taking the cards, uhmmm, not really the same. You have to get the first cards and meditate serious about what you got.
This is a personal reading. Have the courage to accept what you are getting.

Courage is needed to do your own path in life.
Is needed to remember each own may have a personal war to deal, so what is really big to someone may appears easy to another.


No matter if is a personal reading done by yourself or an online reading. You must observe your first feelings about until you get confidence even at your guts too,



This is the basic to have some idea about doing a reading for yourself.

Reading machine from the Big movie.

Some Online Oracles

Now I will cite some online oracle tools I found with these years and I really like that.

My main suggestions is: Always take the first reading, no matter if you dislike it.
Ok, I found some online tools will be extreme wrong, and this is how I got the list I will present bellow. Meanwhile, as you do your own experiences, you must use a different online tool to check, never the same.

But do not repeat the same asking to the same oracle. The only acceptable is asking: "please, explain the previous message"or "please, explain more about such aspect show".
BUT never, never ask a new reading for the same question, be at your own reading or an oracle online tool.


For an interesting point I observed to be very serious: the I-Ching, no matter how you use it, when people want to ask the same thing again, it is very famous to present a warning reply about "not being serious".

Even at former personal oracle readings we are under the same rules about get what is show.



So do not abuse of personal nor online oracles.


Now I will cite some I have been working and I really like the results.

Each one is specific and must be used with respect.

Note: The same way I always evoke the spirits for a reading to any oracle I use, I always do the same when using any of the following oracles.
This means, yes, I raise my hands and do my evocation for higher spiritual guidance.
I really found a lot of difference doing that as the reading becomes very formal.


Some websites I rated to be near 100% and I suggest for different works or areas:

Here I give my testimony: I have used the following ones for years with near Zero error when compared (even for checking) against my inner vision and my personal formal readings about the events related.

To repeat: The following ones I give my personal near 100% about quality:

Fourthdimension's Crowley Thoth On-line Tarot Reading - I love this. This is a formal celtic cross spread with the original texts for each card. The website do no tries to comment the reading, just present the original text. A great site when you have not your deck and want to read by yourself. Be sure to pay atention HOW the cards are selected, here is why I love it! It's a formal AC suggested reading, since the first card to show what area the question is related due the former method.

I CHING ONLINE - Fantastic! To me, the best I-Ching site. I stronggly suggest to remember I-Ching have proper rules (cited at the site). I'm using the I-Ching since the 70's so I observed the same to happens: if you start arguing, the oracle will give direct messages about your intents or ideas.... This is the formal I-Ching way to piss you.
Really a great site. The random aspect goes out as you is the one on controle to press the key to get each line (I use this method always).
Realy very good material.
One I suggest for donnations too. A few from each one will help them to keep the great work.

Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - Portuguese version (better use)
Egyptian Tarot using Kier cards - English version
This is a site for Egyptian tarot readings with the Kier editors cards. Very good! I don't know the author in person, she is Nelise Carbonare Vieira, but presents a very nice work and also is suitable for personal readings with her (recommended).
Note: I found the english version very simple compared with the english one. Appears to work the same way, just not so nice as the portuguese version. Ok people, please remember not all of us have the time to make two entire websites, OK? She deserves my respect also.
The main website is in portuguese, so do your homework and use Google Translator, no troubles here.
The random reading to me always was really very Ok. All cards I got have been direct into the question.
The material is very good; She also have a very complete book about the use of this deck plus all cards study and all of that is available even to study online if you have patience. Or give the merit and buy the ready PDF with all that, really a bargain.
The egyptian Kier deck is a wide source to study and to the ones already on the Tarot and more the Egypt deck, will find the presented cards use to be really very accordingly the question asked.

The llewellyn Tarot Reading
Feel free to call me stupid. I don't know how to reach this since the initial website page! So save this link!
This is a great one, with the choice for eight different deck plus different spreads.
Here something I observed, and this is related with each deck.
Each deck was created for a different vision, so you MAY be carefull to remember each one is related to a very different spirits area.
For example, I use to call the Celtic Dragons to present their wisdom. Hey, Dragons! To often they have no compassion and will present the really crude aspects you have to learn.
The Llewellyn deck use to be the formal tarot and is always Ok.
The Witches tarot is just this. Very good when you are dealing with magic wars or just witches acting, even if this is yourself. So, just a witches point of view.
The Fairy Ring is fantastic to show when something at any magic areas is acting. This includes the areas you have not training. This option also have been good when the source is ATR (African Traditional Religions) or is related with spirits of dead.

My suggestion is to explore each one as you found better.



These are my personal main suggestions, result from years searching and trying.


To finish: Please, reread my previous comments about how to read for yourself. To be simple, do your prayer to open the gate and get the first reply. Do it with courage.

Funny Ritual Result Coincidence and an Important Remembering


Funny Ritual Result Coincidence and an Important Remembering


Few days ago I was rereading some material about the kind of results people will receive working with the Goetia, but also with other spirits including angels.

I will comment about what we get many times is not the only one result, but the possibility to accept it or not. To be clear, is needed to evaluate how the operation is going to avoid fake results or something that won't be desirable.

Most often, magic, and not only daemons will work using the short path. This means they will even find something that is the more accurate to the "original phrase" we used when commanding them for some work.

The classical example is asking for money and they present a job to you. This is clear the most simple but true result someone can expect as a very positive result. They will not make rain money over your head, sorry, this is a simple nature law.
To get a job in no ways means to accept the first, as is needed to be professional and work for a decent job for sure as possible. So using magic to find a new job is not just to get the first, but to improve the process in the same way the person also need to do his/her part and to learn better job searching methods like the ones Liz Ryan suggest at her column at Forbes.

Some may even help you to find a great treasure but, its inside a army base so you can't enter there. Or is needed to climb a peak. Some interesting examples John R. King IV cited in some of if very good relates at ImperialArts and his books. Such examples are very good to show how possibilites may come, but still human work is needed.

And some of such treasures may be not so big, but just good buys to save some bucks at your local store. Think on this in a wide time lapse. A simple example, just the buy of home itens and food. I found a local market near my home, and there I discovered some itens I use more cost usually some 20%-30% less. Plus some bargains I found here and there and be sure the spirits who help to find treasures are many times after that. How much this is in a year? Uhm?
A good way to make money also means to do a good use of the money you have. I'm not talking about being petty, but just better to use the money you have. And this includes for sure to pay more, but for good quality itens that will last more. Quality itens, not just fashion, like clothes use to cost more, but they will have a longer lifetime too. As a personal example, the shoes I get cost 2x-3x more than the popular ones, but they are very confortable since the first time and longer a lot more than the others. A good buy that save a lot of money for sure. Spirits will help you to that too, like the Venus ones, just ask them to teach you to learn more about quality. 
Mercury spirits will help you to make fast business (not to be rich, but moving), and to learn more about your areas of expertize. The Venus spirits will teach you how to do make a better work, I say, to increase the quality of your works so people will valuate it more and get better results. Even a better sell value. Just think about the idea of asking to such spirits for better "creative inspiration" for whatever area you are, to make better, with quality.


Other kind of results are of different quality and not always good. And here daemons are more popular about this aspects. While angels usually try to make people learn to develop themselves, daemons may explore both the light and dark side and present even challenges to people choose. Be sure many angels do this too.


That are the "not so good" results. In the case, results that are even the opposite of the asked. A recent example was someone on need of some higher value due personal concerns. Some time later he found the bank released a credit card with the same value to use. In practice that was not a job, nor a client nor some work opportunity. That was not "new" money incoming, but just a debt. this is the kind of not so good result I'm talking. I had such things happening to me too in the past (so I was really being cheated) so I learned in the hard way. It may solve at an instant a need, but create more troubles than before.
Daemons, angels, planetary spirits, african tradition spirits, etc. many of them will do it.

In such cases is needed to think if the result is proper and accept it, or not.

A proper procedure in such cases is to do a new reading and even to do a new ritual to call the spirit again for a clear talk about the resulting event, evaluate the possibilities, the pros and cons, and this way to think if that is acceptable or not.

Is important to remember the "lust for results". We comment about it often. When in times of need, or just lust, people may get the first opportunity and forgot to evaluate if that is proper or not. Many times there are best solutions just working a bit more. And others no.
Be sex or money, business of a health problem, whatever area have different aspects and possibiities to deal.


Observe this is very different of expecting a lover jump over your door wanting fantastic crazy sex because some ritual was done. No. this is not so. Sex and love, still means to let the room, go to public places, meet people and make good use of the opportunities. If is a new job, you have to go to the company and do your work to keep the job.



A very funny coincidence was this one. I did a prosperity ritual, and as usual, after the work I went to do some home work, this is always good to ground yourself again while disconnect of the entire process. So I had care of my dogs, prepared some food and have a time to myself.
Then I went to the computer and this spam message was there, despite all anti-spam resouces I use:
Yes, is that very popular scam criminals use trying to bill some money so they will "give" you all that money. If they do this until today is just because sometimes they found someone to caught this way.


This made me laught a lot and think if was a joke from the spirit I called. No it wan't, but gave me some ideas to remember anyway.

It is a very good example about some results people get and accept at first and later claim about what they got. 

Magic results does not means to be final. Even when they appears to be very good. 
I had some fantastical proposals that even soo good, made my guts jump at once, so I went more information and found that was too much good to be true. Others was even good, but forcing for some kind of compromise of myself.  Another example was an offer to publish a serious material I have, just 5% about was published before at the Ritual Offerings book. It was very interesting and serious, something like a contract for even 100.000 books selling garanteed at start, plus public chats nationwide. Instant money and richness. But the following was trying me to left my spiritual area to become a bishop at some church. What? Plus all my spirtual background I'm also already a former minister at ULC, but they just wanted me to left all my spiritual life to accept their proposal. NO WAY!!! And yes, there was some spirits working on it too for a long time, despite being a different area, as that spirits don't pay too much about that. Just to note, in my country a lot of most famous churches in practice use magic and ATR (African Traditional Religions) mixes for example. Be sure many of such temples and churches think I'm a nice add to their group. But this have nothing with my own spiritual goals.

As commented, results need evaluation, observe what happened, do another reading and even call the spirits again. 
And observe your gut feelings. 


No need to try everything

Magic is very wide and there are many ways to make something, but for sure not to be stupid and just try all spirits because something does not worked the way wanted. 
Despite many areas for working, is needed to observe what is happening and what may or not be different so, is not just "try all", but to use a method to deal with the real possibilities. 
There are many tasks we got that may have some possibilities, and this can be worked in a few ways to observe the results and reach a conclusion if something else is proper or not. 
When something does not work, there are a lot of reasons, and most for newbies. This need a long study and practice time to start some results and that will improve with the years of work. 

And some tasks won't result in no way. Even if at start there are possibilities to try. 
But nobody can assure results in magic, there are too many events happening too. I cited this in a previous post too. 

So remember: when results start some may not be exactly the needed and this means evaluation. 
Use the best results you get, learn with them and this will always be a gain someway. 


And for sure, do not reply to some internet scammer offering $ millions so easy.

Making the Goetia Circle

Goetia Circle

Making the Goetia Circle


Times ago these images was posted at Aaron Leitch's Solomonic group may be of interest to people, so I will comment a bit more about the process.

Making your magic tools is always an interesting work not only because the magic area you chose.
Each area have many to study and learn.

In no ways magic is just to learn phrases and words by mind, but you need to understand what is the purpose, why it is done and for what it is needed.

Citing a Rufus Opus comment, when you are doing the Work, this means you have to work too!

And all work you do will add power to your magic works.

Be sure all spirits, angels, daemons, etc. will know if you did your part too.
So always is good to remember: the magician must do his/her part too and not act like a parrot. 

Even if you are not skilled for such craft works, whatever you do, with a sincere intent, at your best capabilities will add a lot of power to any magic you do.

We too often comment how much is important to be respectful with the spirits, and the same way such spirits have to be respectful with you!

So, to do your homework is the first part of any magic works.


I commented about the skills we have or not.
Be sure I have really bad hands for craft works.
Even so, some I find better to do by myself as I can.

I'm not the only with bad hand skills, nor with the proper needed capabilities to some activites, like metal works and jewerly some people have.
For such cases, it's Ok to pay someone to make that for you. Here, is your sincere work to get the needed money and to go after the best one you can pay to make that tools for you.

A serious sincere work add respect and power to what you do. Even if you need to pay with the most sincere but humble resource for that. In no way I told you to stop feeding yourself nor your family for that. Just do what you really can at best, but no masochism is needed!


Well, watching by myself my results when I do some hand works may be a kind of masochism too... Ok, I have self-criticism... I'm kidding. In practice is a work of love.

Well, I know my craft workings are not so nice, nor so perfect. But be sure I used the most I can, tryed the most I can and most of times, I worked a lot more than other people needed to get something.
Time is power too.
That was the same when I made my Triangle of Art. That costed a lot of times jsut for the basics.


Going to work

So here my working to make my Goetia circle and wish inspire more people to do the hard way needed to get the deserved results..


First I researched about the names in the circle, their meanings, related texts, psalms, etc. There are some differences so I had to study more and found my own decision about.

I researched the books and articles from other magicians and advanced forums like the StudioArcanis, currently we found to be the best at the area.

This was many years ago, took some six months and I discovered many authors unknown in my country, find other works and articles at so many blogs too. Very interesting when you ask to your spiritual guides to help the work and each day find more and more to read, study and learn from other's experiences.

I collected a lot of material that time studying this and that ideas plus observing who was the ones behind that and how they was working with that. This is important to observe, as some people will find better to make their practices this or that way so one need to think for himself for the decisions to do. In no way such are final decisions, as we always can learn and change something as our works goes on.

This included going after some original grimoires sources to observe what they did and compare with modern studies too.

Ms Sloane 2731 - Clavicula Solomonis Goetia Circle
Ms Sloane 2731 - Clavicula Solomonis Goetia Circle
Source: BritishLibrary Manuscript collection


Finally, observing my own idea to go most at the original sources, I found better to my purposes the same J.Peterson published at Esotericarchives - The Lesser Key of Solomon (Lemegeton).

I love scholar's work such this site, one of first and still the best IMHO. I always say to people I'm more about practical work. I have to study all that for sure, just I have not all the patience they have to compile all that to make their work. It's a serious needed task and they deserve my full respect.


That time I was already doing some basic Goetia works, with very interesting and positive results.
To cite, the method used was the one most people know as the "Red Triangle" by Devi Spring and former based in the original Aghor Pir's work. It sure works and is really very interesting. It uses the daemolanators Enn's chants. Just in my point of view, it's not the same as a former ritual and it does not have all the resources for protection for initial contacts with unknown daemons for you, nor about intrusive spirits as that ones appears sometimes.

So I wanted more in the same way as I always did in all my previous works like the spiritual areas and that resulted to experiences that really few in the world have done. 
Anyone who is after the modern works like Aaron Leitch, Rufus Opus, Brother Moloch and others will have lots of excelent material to study from their former practices, not just theory. I say, solid teachings from people who paid the price for their learnings and know very well what they are talking about.
Nobody learns alone, the nature already is a great teacher, but this way can take a long time. So you can learn from people who went serious into their work, not just for sel-promoting, listen, read, study all you can so this will add to your personal findings and discoveries.


Where are the materials?

Since I found was the time to make a former circle, at the same time I was researching the proper words and symbols, I went after the most simple part: The simple fabric cotton I found to be better to use. 
Guess what? I live in a city with more than 1.5 million people. For many months no store had brute cotton fabric to sell!
Curious, uhm? That happens when the spirits put you under test too. If you want, you may work for it. So I went at many stores, at all places. Until someday I found it again. Just for curious, at same time all other stores had the material I needed too.
This is not a punishment in no way as many religions use to claim and this way make people to feel guilty even because they have sex with their wife or husband.
No way! Just happens!
But when such happens you may know to use such event for your own power. So as soon I perceived something was blocking, I went to each try reciting my prayers, talking with the spirits I found better to help about and making clear my intent.
All this added power to the final result. So remember: all your effort will be part of the final deserved result.

To find proper fabric inks was not so difficult, but I had to learn and research a bit more about how to use it too.


Working

As the previous house I was had a lesser room, I needed to adjust the circle size, so I made it small, just 1.4m (4.5ft).

The day I finally started the hand work part, it had first a former prayer evoking God and all spiritual guidance for it.


For all following days, as part of the works, during all painting process I always started with lighting a candle and prayer for God, asking the blessing for the work being done.
This took an entire month. I told I'm very bad at hand works, so it was slow, and I have my own pain in back troubles to deal too. Most people will do it in 1-2 weeks.


The fabric was washed and all the paints I used was consecrated.
 The first was to have an idea about where and how to place the symbols. So I printed that to observe over the fabric and made initials notes.

My Goetia Circle - Checking symbols positions

Ok, learned how to fix the fabric in the ground and to use a string to make the circle using a proper fabric pen to draw the circle:

My Goetia Circle - Starting the draw

The next was near easy, I had to choose a characters size and drawn by hand. Here just free hand, so the result was some tremble, but Ok.

My Goetia Circle - Writing words

Following until complete it:

My Goetia Circle - Initial draft ready to paint

Then I fixed it at the wood wall to make easier to paint. You will note I had some mistakes and needed to use white paint to correct it.

My Goetia Circle - Painting process


And the final result:

My Goetia Circle - Finished


When it was finished, I kept it for some days more at the wall, waching for some other paint errors I was not aware, and always asking the blessings of God to the work done. And I liked just to be looking at it and thinking.


As I commented at start, not that kind of so very nice artcraft, but a work of mine and this is also a true offering to present to the spirits I'm working with.

After that, I did the consecration of the circle. There are the names of God, angels, etc, so each one have a proper psalm and meaning to recite. Used oil over it for a proper blessing ritual and only then it was used the first time.



My Goetia Circle and Triangle of Art


The circle is not the 9ft former size, but is Ok. The works done with it helped me to be at a new house with the needed space, so when I can I can I will do a new 9ft size.

Work done and be sure, a serious stronger difference at the rituals and the ways I got results and replies from all spirits I have been working.

Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.

Be sure giving the Key is not a physical act only.
Photo: Unknown author.


Receiving Oracle Skills by Initiation.

OR

How become instantly good with oracles due some occult supernatural ways. 


Learning a more complex oracle, like the Tarot, Runes, I-Ching, etc. is something that demand study, practice, research in other related areas according with the oracle being studies, etc.

Just to make simple comment, I'm using more the Tarot as an example. 
The first most people learn is a general meaning to each card, rune and some basic spreads to place the cards and have some kind of reply. Most of people don't do much more and only expect to be using their own natural intuition for that.
Even if the person have a gift of birth like vidence, this does not add so much. All they have are ideas or visions and will deal accordingly their life experience only to understand what they see.
So the next needed is to start a more former study about each card, not only the basic meanings, but some of the idea each card express and how it is related to the others. Is here people start to understand more about the real way the oracle works. This will add a lot to understand the ideas and how intuition may help too, and to get more complex understanding and relations amog

The following, is learning about the inner symbols of the cards, planets, astrological signs, numbers, elemental correspondences and so on.
This is just about technical aspects.
The other to develop is the own intuition capabilities, learn more about other areas to understand more about people, society, etc.
So this is a wide area to study for sure.

There's the possibility to increase that throught initiations. To access other levels and discover more areas and this way improve the reading capability.
For sure this is not something like "instant learning" nor "instant vidence" capabilities. 


Many see initiation just as a rite to get a diploma, many may think this is an instant miracle way for new super-powers.

Initiation at basic levels, is just to become in contact with some kind of knowledge.
This is the human level.

But at the higher spiritual levels, the initiation is a process to receive a kind of key.

You must see the idea of "key" just as something that may connect you to something.

Like opening a door to you.
BUT, see, the door just is opened, you still need to enter by your legs and learn what is behind that point.

Get this? Is not an instant capability.

You will just receive the key, or a connection to a resource at the other realms.
If you was working to prepare for it, for sure you will see results faster, but again, this is why you already have done all the previous needed work.

So you will enter there, entire new realms and possibilities and see by yourself to learn.
Some will have a lot to learn, others will be ready for that.
Anyways, they was in the merit to receive it despite how much practice.
Yes, even without so much practice some people may have the needed merit, just need more hard practice that often happens very fast.

I may give to someone an intiation to an oracle or something else, but still there are the need to work with it, practice and study. Before and after.

This is why some people may receive such initiation and have a jump on their skills: they was just working and was ready to receive a better resource.

And no, no, no, do not even think to ask for that. This is not something to buy too.
Yes, too often some people try and they received only what they deserved... Sorry...
You can buy a diploma, but never the merit or real skills.

I may give such initiations by my own to the ones who deserved the merit. Never to the ones who asked. They was just fooled by themselves.
I give such initiations sometimes, when the disciple/student is really ready.
Some have tryed to be "opportunists" and received just a fake key pointing into their own darkness. Betrayers! They even received a "mystic name" from me. To these ones,, as they are vampires out of light, such names was just what they never had done and what they have to discover to deserve what they asked for. A bill for life at most.
I'm looking at both sides, Uhm?

Remember the phrase: "When te disciple is ready the master comes"?
Is this.
You can't ask for it.
It may happens to you someday if you keep walking and do your own homework.

And this can happens in two basic ways:
1) Meeting someone who will give the keys and will be an incredible experience.
2) Astral initiation. Uhm something like at someday or night, you receive a vision, or the sky opens up and you see a big flame or spirit/angel and they will give it to you.
Yes, it really happens this way, I had some and will be only yours as you keep the work.

Some formal Orders do a nice work to give the keys to the ready ones . But even there you must do the work.
So, study, practice, take notes, improve yourself. Sometime when you are ready that will happens.

Reading for Yourself. How Ensure Objectivity in Personal Readings? Some notes.

Mirror Gazing. As an oracle too, what you see?
Unkonow photo author.


Someone questioned: I sometimes find it difficult to be objective when we do personal readings. So, my question is: how do you ensure objectivity in personal readings? I usually write it down in the third person as if I were speaking to someone else. Other methods?


My Reply:

At any oracle, Tarot, Runes, etc. a reading to someone else or just for yourself must be objective. 

Think on Meditation and Therapy.

Yes. something I found to be needed is therapy.

So is needed to be as most as possible like a third person, even about yourself. 

Meditation will lead into yourself. And what you will find there? Ego, traumas, a lot of personal problems and even from past lives to deal with.

Well, you can become a hero and deal with all that alone.

But there are a lot of methods that help to learn faster and will help to deal and even cleanup all that mess.

A good therapy is a very valuable resource.

Many schools use that and yes, many cases are well resolved with psychologists.
Ok, have some patience with the psychologists too.  :rofl

Once I got a female psychologist, and I commented to her some of my occult background. The result was funny: she had a real strong fear from me. She always used to keep at the opposite side of the room and each time she gave a reply, she used to say something like "I ask permission to all your degrees to suggest that... blah-blah-blah...". At third meeting she was presenting me some texts and books about the "crazy ones genious in history" and suggesting to introduce psychotropic drugs...  LOL...

So I moved to another one, and just presented what I was in need to work, but no information about occult works. The guy did a fantastic specific work in just [b]two [/b]one hour meetings. Dot.

There are a lot of alternative therapies. As a sannyasin, I did a lot and my Master Osho told just this about, the need of cleaning, improving yourself and to save a lot of time.

Just to note, at the alternative therapies area, there are a lot of formal practices like the ancient Ayurvedic medicine, acupunture, Gurdjeff, etc, etc., that at many western countries still are not formally recognized, even with thousands years of practice.
And there are many workshops to work on specific areas of life, some last 2-3 days and even more, when people usually goes to some place and stay there doing an immersion to work that. For sure, the results vary a lot for each one accordingly your concioussness level and what you are working with.

Most of times, the good workshops with formal trained therapists do more in few days than you will get instead of working alone for a long time. Some of that workshops may be at easy levels while others may present workings where you will be really and deep faced with the possibility of dealing with deeper points.
In my specific case, I missed the opportunity to go to Poona in India while Osho was alive for the stupidest reason: a marriage and accepting due the wrong reasons the opinion of my ex-wife. Ok, I paid to learn that. But I never gave up and continued.
I learned that our personal development is above anything. No one will compensate for your work of self-evolution, just yourself.
I remember Osho used to say that when it comes to your own evolution, your personal work of consciousness, you must be selfish. No one will do it for you, only yourself. Ok, you can try to sell your soul, and lack the evolution.  LOL...
This is that always helped a lot to keep my faith, despite all the problems and even at the most difficult times.
So I continued and I had the opportunity to be at a Ashran with my Master in the Andes mountains, an entire month each year for many times in the 90s, and that was an immersive experience of workshops one after other in the mountain and the woods. Each workshopt was 2-3 days of extreme experiences. The ones who was easy got nice results. Yes, always there are a lot of people who are just mystics and so easy. Others who went deep, have meet big results. What about learn to run in the woods, having to climb a mountain running, blindfolded and with instructors actually chasing you and really hard beating you with wood sticks? I say really serious spanking. No masochism, that guys was really great. Think about to run like that in the middle of large bushes full of thorns that hurts a lot. Yes, we did that at very risk places like ravins and pits. Add to this all the spiritual part. And in my case, the contact with spirits I started many times before. If you had read some of Castaneda works, is this I'm talking. Near same kind of teaching. That school had some very related works and this means, no choice to error. Glad we never had see even a broken leg even with all extreme risk. Only many scrapes and cuts on the skin. One teaching I have for myself was if choose to give up facing the problems may hurt more in the rest of your life. I learned to run where there was no way.
Before someone ask, I fully give thanks to the teachings I experienced and did by myself, but the schools become something very soft later, the instructors I knew have gone and today it appears more like a nice SPA resort for rich people after spiritual tourism.  Still a nice place to visit and some of the current soft works can be interesting to who is not after a fashion life style.


When you take the Tarot for you, remember this is about having some better understanding about yourself.

This is what you will find in a personal reading. You.

Are you ready to look to yourself?


Something I disagree with others is about consider all posible card interpretations. As an oracle reader, you must develop your vision and have just one interpretation to each case.
For sure, this take time to learn, with practice and study.

But what is the right answer? Usually the first idea you get in your mind. Not what you get one second later.
You must be able to get the first impression, like a "flash" of light. That is the reply when working with any oracle.

But you is the one who have to accept what you see.

And trust me, by personal experience, this can be painfull sometimes, just because what the oracle sometime will point is not what you want.


To give an idea as an example too:
A practice I did in the past, is a shamanic method of self healing.
In this case, to heal your eyes if you use glasses.
I use it.
The practice is simple: think the source of the eyes health problems is just because you does not want to see something, nor accept something. In resume, our eyes troubles most often cames due our mind refuse to accept what is seen. This is the general idea.
So you have to compromise yourself and say: "I accept to see and I want to see all I don't want to see".
It's a daily practice. I removed my glasses more and more until I was for many months without wearing glasses.
BUT, see, I started to see a lot I was not wanting to see.
This means, you will see the world, the people, your life, any aspects.

And I became to suffer with that.
I already commented about not being masochist in another posts during personal healing practices nor at any therapy.
Well, after many months I was seeing too much about everything. My senses and visions about people and anything extended to a level I was really unaware to deal. I found a lot more behind all that I was not seeing. Most that was not important to solve nor desirable.
So I stopped with it. And yes, I'm kept fully aware from all that if needed.

Well, the Dalai Lama wear glasses, uhm?


Ok, this is one idea. You may use the oracle and ask to see.
This is why is a very good idea always to do a prayer and invoke a specific angel/spirit/deity to work with you on the reading.
This way you are not only on your knowledge as they will talk with you, develop your intuition.

But you have to ask to see and work to be able to accept what you see, no matters how much you dislike it.

Be sure my human part really hate many readings I do for myself.
One more reason sometimes I ask to others to do a reading for me, even beginners.
My human part need a check, no matters how good I know to be on my oracles and all the feedback I receive, still is my human part, and our mind can cheat us.




The lust for results.

This is one very important aspect about "personal readings": lust for results.

A good reply is when the oracle point a "no way" result.
Ok, you must be able to accept the reply and what is shown. Or be stupid to follow even when the oracle show a problem if you continue.

But there is something that can drive any one into nuts.

So, as I remember for now, there are at least two replies we may get from the oracle that we really dislike:
"Not yet".
"Wait. Things are going to change".

That is a shit!
And why?

You are doing all you can, using all teachings you received while working to change or make something happens.
And you deep need or want that to happens.

Here, the only I have to say is: have patience.

Oh shit!!!!

But sometimes is very hard to have patience when all kind of troubles are knocking at your door.
Or you are working for a long time to get something.

There's something to do?
Yes. One thing I learned is to be humble and talk to others who are on the path. The people who you know are already doing the work.
Remember, you are not alone.

May be some day you will be so high you will be be alone in the highest mountain.
And guess what? You won't be alone if you remember you can talk with the trees, the birds, the mountain himself.
They will talk with you too, just learn to listen.

Birds like to do gossip. This is what they are doing at the trees in the morning and at the eventide.
One more reason I have a place with food to the birds in my garden. They comment about everything they see in the town.
Pay attention to them. Is a way to learn their language.

But anyways, we are humans. I'm not so leveled up to just let any worry.

I survived to many hard events. But I'm human.
Glad I had people to talk with.
And always my full thanks to all who have helped, that is really priceless and never will be forgotten.



So to resume about your personal readings: work to cleanup your life history, develop your intuition, be ready to listen and as possible, get the first message and have a second view from someone else to compare with your results.
This will add power to your readings for other people too as you discover the best is to be clear with them about yourself.
If  you are clear, no masks, you will be objective and people will discover you is a normal person too. I have the same problems most people have, at all areas, be sure. I just had a lot of experiences that become part of my practices and learning and I can share this without fear.
Discovering yourself is part of becoming true.
