On the Body
There are many different clues to working with the body, and we are going to discuss some of the ideas that the Aspirant himself needs to develop and utilize in further work.
Trance is an outpost toward stars. An aspirant must understand its nature, which is about all, natural, and easy for every soul. There is no mysticism in this occurrence, just a divine combination of biological and natural processes of the brain. Using methods that requires hours or years just shows that we do not understand the very mechanism of trance, as well as the mechanism of our mind.
About magical words
Vibration is a signpost to the stars. It does not carry energy in itself; on the contrary, it carries consciousness and serves only to direct energy, which in that case, unmistakably runs toward the field of action.
Treatise on Scrying
In the life of the Neophyte, there is a special place in the exploration of visions, but he must not equate it with the experience of the astral projection or the projection of the body of light.
Draw the Sign of the Beast above your head. First, a full circle (shout NUIT), then a dot (say HADIT), and finally, a cross (vibrate RA-HOOR-KHUIT).
Liber G vel Regina
Draw a heptagram (with mano in fica) starting from the second B (see the A∴A∴ sigil).
Every magical retreat is a true reflection of the Aspirant’s inventiveness and courage. Yet, it is not whether he will have the courage to implement it or not – it is something completely different, the courage to construct the whole work for himself.
Complete course in Astral projection/Lucid Dreaming
All our trouble is that with the occult arts, we try bypassing something that is an entirely open channel in itself. It has taken so much time during which we have been really unable to say what is going on in our brains during quite ordinary things; apart from being able to perceive certain reactions, we are unable to answer how and why processes occur within the mind, and how certain information is processed and stored.
The appearance of a Shadow inside a Lucid dream
Both shadow and fear in a lucid dream are always and only routes to the Angel who tells us where to go – if we dare and if we find courage and Will.
“The Body of Light” astral projection technique
Success in the complete transfer of consciousness to the astral body is something that is very rare in occult work, and it can be said that this technique is both simple and impossible to perform.
All secrets are just our inability to grasp the simplicity of our soul by Neurosis; the point of the ultimate experience is by no means in barbaric names, nor in the hours spent in Dharana.
Treatise on Enochian magick
We really have an objection; the Enochian realms are high for one simple reason, for we are utterly incapable of peering into our own depths.
The Neophyte is a newcomer, but not because he gets new experiences. Rather, it is because he gets right experiences.
Charging the Sigil
The first thing to do with a sigil once it has been constructed is to do nothing. It is work exactly which causes the turbulence of our censor of reality and self-regulatory abolition of enthusiasm – neurosis.
The author of Tarot is not the one who drew it but the one who holds it.
On the use of magical words
There are only a few more practical tips related to the mantra; when you repeat it, imagine there is a dark cave in the center of the chakra.
The Neophyte and the Vampire
The Aspirant should always continually think that every relationship is merely a pale imitation of the authentic Tantra, which is the unity with the Angel.
Preliminary words on Scrying
He must understand that both him, his vision, and his eyes are only a part of one and the same apparatus, and even when he has completely failed, it is precisely the desire of that mechanism to manifest in this way.
Two short astral visions
I am vibrating names, and passing through. I show up on a single leaf of a tree. I am so tiny; in front of me, there is a drop of some liquid, actually dew, sliding down that leaf.
About the essence of the Robe
As you move, so does the Robe move – it is one movement and one Will, inasmuch as the Angel and the Aspirant are One.
On the names of power
There is nothing so effective as the nature of silence; the full effect of the ritual is only after its last word, never during the performance.
On magical Motto
The Motto is a metaphor of Will. Choosing the Motto is the Aspirant's first attempt of the Great Work.
More on magical Motto
The relationship between the Motto and the Angel is the same relationship between the Aspirant and the Motto. In every present which continually exists in the same way, the Aspirant, the Motto, and the Angel are one and the same thing.
Liber Resh. Some notes on practices. Also, on Māyā or Illusion.
The essence of Liber Resh is not in a single execution, like it may be in Samekh, but in constant, daily repetition, even when you are not aware of progress, to remind you what awaits you at the end of the Path. It reminds you of golden Tiphareth, gently and continuously.
