Apologies for not posting much lately. I’ve been insanely busy with a number of things (too much work, business trips, homework, all kinds of projects, deadlines etc). I’m currently on vacation, but I’ll resume posting once I get back. In the meantime, you probably want to watch this video if you haven’t already (in which case, do you live under a rock or something? 😛 ). Jason Miller and Gordon White Talking Financial Chaos:
Scarlet Magdalene at Alchemical Musings is conducting an anonymous survey among people who have done the Abramelin. I am really interested to see the results of this.

Up until last night I had never become lucid in a dream without immediately waking up. Last night was the first time I was fully lucid in a dream, without waking up right away. It kinda was a nightmare though and I couldn’t really change things in there, so I deliberately woke myself up. To find that when I wake myself up from a lucid dream, I have sleep paralysis. Which I also hadn’t experienced before, and which pretty much sucks. And I kept falling asleep again before the sleep paralysis could wear off, and returning to the same crappy dream, and promptly waking up again in paralysis, and so on and so forth.
Today I’m going to write about a very useful skill: seeing auras. This is the first I teach people who are curious about magic and anything metaphysical but want to experience something first-hand that will truly impress them.
There are many reasons why seeing auras is at the top of my list. First of all, it’s something that most (if not all) people can do with minimum training and effort. I personally believe that we probably all see auras all the time, we are just used to tuning the information out, the way a big part of stimuli from our environment is tuned out by our brain because it’s deemed non-important. In addition to that, while seeing auras isn’t exactly a vital skill for magic –in fact I know many really successful magicians who have never seen an aura in their life- the way you need to focus (or more accurately, un-focus) your eyes to see an aura is the same type of gaze you need to scry successfully, as well as see spirits with your physical eyes. Not only that, but I have noticed that the more someone trains in seeing auras, the easiest it is for them to see spirits in their environment when they aren’t even trying. So as you see, there are way too many benefits one gets from something that doesn’t take longer than a few minutes of daily practice.Continue Reading
There is something strange going on lately and I don’t know what is causing it. It’s the fifth or sixth time now (within a month, maybe month and a half) that I have a weird encounter with a totally unknown person who will start behaving in a really odd way the moment they lay eyes upon me.
It all started one Sunday morning, when I was out trying to find a suitable crossroads to dispose of some offerings and other stuff that needed proper disposal. I had walked a few blocks from my apartment (mainly because it’s a busy area and I was walking until I could find a spot with no pedestrians for a moment or two so that I wouldn’t draw attention to myself). I wasn’t really in the best of moods, and I looked like a mess: unwashed hair and wearing the most unattractive clothes I probably have in my wardrobe just because they were the first thing I grabbed when I reached inside for clothes.

The topic of this month’s Blog Hop is one I consider very important for the success of most spells and workings: ritual links. Many people spend a lot of time looking for the right spell that will accomplish what they want. They buy the best, most expensive materials or spend a lot of time and effort to make their own materials, carefully taking into consideration things like moon phases, planetary positions etc. Yet they fail to do the most important thing for the success of their working: actually link their magic to the target!Continue Reading
Is it weird to love a city like a living being? If it is, then I suppose it’s even weirder to believe that a city loves you. I don’t know. All I know is that it’s totally different that liking a city very much. Not like how people say “I love Paris! It’s such a cool/romantic place!” for example. It goes way WAY deeper than that.
I just got back from a trip to the city that actually loves me more than any other place I’ve ever been to (and believe me, I’ve been to loads of places!). To me, this city is a living organism, consisting of other living organisms. The way the human body is a compilation of different kinds of cells, bacteria and other substances that somehow cooperate, each with their own consciousness, yet still part of the bigger consciousness that is a human. All cities are like that, but this is the only one I can perceive so clearly. I don’t know if it’s because of the city itself, if it’s more conscious or more social than other cities, but whenever I am there, there isn’t even a moment when I stop feeling the living being that is the city: huge compared to me, powerful, wise, loving. Really old, yet very modern, ever-changing, ever-evolving. I can reach out with my consciousness and feel the boundaries of the city, where it starts becoming less and less of the city and more of something else until it’s not the city anymore, until another consciousness is reached, one that belongs to a different place. A different being.Continue Reading
