Golden Dawn – Unleashing the Adept Within ( Audio Program )

March 30, 2014
Unleash your true adept powers.

Unleash your true adept powers.

A few years ago I got into a serious debate with myself on the subject of Golden Dawn adept-hood. I wanted to have a more clear and defined understanding of what a true adept was. I knew that many of the people who had gone through the adeptus minor initiation were no more a true adept than the average man on the street. Sure they had facts memorized, but does that make them an adept? It only makes them an adept in memorized knowledge. So what is a true adept? How do your define it, and how do you transform yourself to become one? The true adept is a powerful person often feared by the ignorant. The true adept is someone who has more than knowledge, he or she someone who has deep and often profound understanding and wisdom. While the external adept can tell you how to charge a talisman or bring about miraculous healing, the true adept is the talisman, is the healer, is the mystic, and is the magician.( Yes true adepts are both mystics and magicians ) I think it is important to advance the grades, but we should focus on true adept-hood rather than titles.
This CD program was designed to help those on the Golden Dawn path unleash the true power of the adept within. Once this magical power is awakened, everything else works, because your magic makes it happen. See for yourself, check out the information on Unleashing the Adept within.

Golden Dawn Inner Magic & the Qabalah ( The Power of Q )

Artistic drawing of the Tree of Life.

5 years ago I created a program to help adepts within the Golden Dawn tradition better connect to the power of the Tree of Life. This was no easy project. Everything had to be just right, so that the vibration of the sounds were akin to the vibration of the Sephra on the Tree of Life. Each one of these special and unique doorways was created only after a complete and total invocation. Needless to say, this program did not happen over night. The Power of Q is an exciting tool to help the student of the Tree of Life. sadly, many have the head knowledge but lack the inner awareness.
This program has not been available to anyone for about 3 or 4 years. The only way you could get a copy was through someone who bought it and was bootlegging a copy. It is available now. I can’t say exactly how long it will be available, but for a short time you can get it at my personal website. ( It is not available through the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn. ) Here is a direct link to the site. If you have any interest in the inner transmutation and power of the Tree of Life, I would suggest you check out the Power of Q. Here is the link below:

The Law Of Attraction, The Golden Dawn & Energy Healing

February 5, 2014

By Robert Zink
G.H. Frater P.D.R.

The Ruach Healing Method, a Golden Dawn method of healing and energy work.

The Sphere of Sensation of the human body.


Hermes states, as above so below. The Law of Attraction finds it’s roots in the ancient teachings of Hermes Trimegestus and the Emerald Tablet. This ancient document provides the basis of knowledge for all magical, metaphysical and even spiritual healing. It is the Law of Attraction and the reality that likes attract likes which allows us to create an inner reality of health and wellness, then have it reflected into the physical plane. Without getting too esoteric let me make this whole concept easier to understand. All we need to do is look at this simple yet profound sentence that come from the Emerald Tablet. The profound sentence is as follows: “As Above so Below.”
There are a multitude of interpretations/translations to the Emerald Tablet. Keeping this in minds, suffice to say, a workable and usable interpretation of the Emerald Tablet is “that which we create in the higher planes of reality, must manifest in the lower planes of the physical world”. This is exactly what you do as a Energy Healer, you work in the energy field of the patient and thus are working in the higher planes of reality in regard to the patient.
This is a simple concept but difficult for some to get a grasp on. I remember when a noted Golden Dawn leader began laughing on the internet and calling me a “New Age Golden Dawn Guru”. He argued that this whole concept was from the new age movement and had nothing to do with the Golden Dawn or the teachings of Hermetics. I strongly disagree.
I believe the Law of Attraction is the cornerstone of how the Magic of Light works, initiation, and or anything else that has a spiritual/physical counterpart. Naturally the Law of Attraction is the foundation of how all forms of esoteric or spiritual healing work. Think of this…..If there is no higher reality that expresses itself as the aura or energy field, if the only thing that exists is the body, then all we are doing is playing a mental game with ourselves. On the other hand, if healing a tear in the aura of a patient has a profound affect on a bleeding cut, and the bleeding slows down or stops, then we have employed the very basis of the Law of Attraction. Healings like the one just mentioned are the RULE, not the exception.
One prolific author who wrote about the Law of Attraction was one of the Chief Adepts in the Golden Dawn Temple in Chicago in the 1920′s. His name was William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932). Atkinson was one of the Three Initiates who wrote what has almost become the modern day bible of modern Hermetics. That book is a must read for anyone interested in the Law of Attraction and Hermetics. The books is called The Kybalion (1908). After over 50 years this book is still in print; showing the timelessness of the truth contained in it’s pages. Atkinson coined the phrase “Thought, Vibration and the Law of Attraction.”
master thoughtsThe whole idea that Atkinson and others claim is that our thoughts have incredible power to create the reality we seek. In other words, if we think about health and vitality, we tend to attract health and vitality and vice verse. This is a cornerstone teaching in almost every mystery school. The more you think about something the more energy is put into manifesting that thought. Again we see the concept of “As above, so below”.
This fundamental truth applies to every area of our lives. The way we think affects our mental state, our physical health, as well as, our wealth. It is absolutely critical that every Energy Healer of any healing method have a basic understanding of the Law of Attraction. It is essential that as Energy Healers we never allow ourselves to draw limitations on the universe’s ability to heal anyone of any condition at anytime.
Another famous Adept of the Golden Dawn tradition is the late Israel Regardie. He is most famous for his book called The Golden Dawn. Regardie was a proponent of the Law of Attraction and wrote about it in his 1937 book called, The Art of True Healing: A Treatise on the Mechanism of Prayer and the Operation of the Law of Attraction in Nature. In this book he shares with his readers a meditation designed to help the mind heal itself! Regardie claimed that the Law of Attraction was not only a valid method for attracting good physical health, but that the Law of Attraction was equally good for empowering other aspects of one’s life. I personally would agree with Regardie and simply add that there cannot be any healing if the constructs of the Law of Attraction are not employed. All good Energy Healers invoke the power of the Law of Attraction in their healing even if they are not aware of it. I as an Energy Healer with a Golden Dawn background join Atkinson and Regardie in embracing how the Law of Attraction and true healing go hand in hand.
Certainly there are others who do not have a magical or Hermetic background that have been active advocates in regard to the power of the Law of Attraction. This may be one of the most revealing things about the Law of Attraction; that it’s concepts are not limited to one group of people or another. People from every belief system seem to find a way to connect to the concept of the Law of Attraction, especially if healing is involved.
One of these people is Wallace D. Wattles. Wattles in his famous book The Science of Getting Rich (1910) explains to his reader that, the mere act of simply believing in the object of your desire and focusing on it will lead to that object or goals being realized. Wattles also explains that negative thoughts lead to negative results. If Wattles is correct, and I certainly believe he is, then every thought our patients think about themselves and their physical health likely has played a significant role in their Dis-ease. In other words, they are attracting into their physical bodies the very sickness they seek to rid themselves of. To take this a step further, every thought we think about our patients has a powerful and even lasting impact on them. This is why it is critical that the Energy Healer learn to control his or her thoughts at all times.
Perhaps the most famous of all the books that have the Law of Attraction as its cornerstone is Napoleon Hill’s book called Think and Grow Rich (1928). This book continues to be one of the top selling books on the use of the mind in the attraction of wealth. The book has sold over 60 million copies. The same principals that are employed for attracting wealth can and should be applied to the subject of healing. This book is as much about the subject of healing as it is about wealth accumulation. Hill insisted on the importance of controlling one’s own thoughts in order to achieve success, as well as, control the energy that thoughts have and their ability to attract other thoughts.
In recent times, we have seen a plethora of books on the subjects of thoughts, attraction and healing. For example The Secret (2006) by Rhoda Byrne. This book is very much influenced by Wallace Wattles 1910 book The Science of Getting Rich, which Byrne received from her daughter during a time of personal trauma. Another example is Esther and Jerry Hicks and their New York times best seller called, Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth and Happiness (2007). All of these books teach about the power of our thoughts and what we can learn to manifest if we develop control of our thought.
You may be saying to yourself, this is all very interesting but what does this have to do with the healing. The answer is simple. Your thoughts as an Energy Healer must be focused on a target. I believe you must hold that target in your mind with crystal clear vision. When I begin performing healing on a patient, I never draw a limitation. I always see this person in optimum health and vitality. I see radiance coming from them and always see them in a state of joy and happiness. You need to create this vision in your mind and hold it. At times it may become difficult to hold the picture, but nonetheless less this is what you must do.
chakra-bodyEverything you do must align with your overall picture of health and vitality. At times this may be difficult because your patients may be in pain, sick, hurting, and even more damaging, they may be complaining. Listening to a patient complain is one thing, as we want to be compassionate, but we must never buy into the the complaint. It is important that you as an Energy Healer never accept that things are static or unchangeable. You are a representative of the universe and the universe has no limitations.

So whether you are a Law of Attraction practitioner, a Golden Dawn or other magical community member, or an Energy Healer remember all of these are inter-connected. Even though each group accesses the power of their thoughts in different ways the same results are achieved. The Law of Attraction uses magic and healing. Magic uses the Law of Attraction and healing. Healing uses the Law of Attraction and magic. I encourage you to explore the resources in this article that you are not familiar with. Broadening your knowledge of attraction, magic, and healing techniques will empower you. Remember, control your thoughts; “As Above, so Below”. Expect results!

Top 10 Golden Dawn Magicians of All Time

January 25, 2014

                                                                   Image

The other day I was asked by a member in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn who I thought were the top magicians of Golden Dawn Magic. I told him I would get back to him on this topic and gave it some thought.  After several days of thinking about this topic, I decided what was critically important in choosing the top 10 Golden Dawn magicians of all time, and what is not so important. 

First the list of things that are not so important.

1. Being good at puzzle magic.

2.  A super-duper memory

3.  Wood working and sewing skills

4.  Religious

 

Here are the skills the magician must have to be great:

1.  Knowledge of the system and how magic really works

2.  Astral skills

3   God form assumption ability

4.  Ability to control the elements

5.  Ability to control spirits and macrocosm energies

6.  Ability to create powerful magical operations

7   Forged and tested connections to Genius and the Third Order

 

Lets go back at look at the list of things that are not so important.  Number one is puzzle magic skills.  There are a ton of people who have powerful left brain skills in math, physics, and the ability to do puzzles.  This gives them absolutely no advantage in magical abilities that anyone else.Magic is not about solving puzzles, it is about causing reality to conform to will.  Magic is about connection with Genius, and in that puzzle making or creating ability is just that, a curious ability and a talent of sorts, but has little to do with magical abilities, knowledge or power.

Next lets look at those with a super-duper memory.  I have met such people who could memorize an invocation in less than an hour.  This gives them the ability to memorize, not to actualize the magic invoked into reality.  If magic was about memory only, then the person with the best memory would be the best magician.  This is not the case.  Often magicians really do not come into their full power until they reach their 50′s through 80′s.  While they have lost a bit of edge on the memory stuff, they have gained with experience and inner knowledge.

I often am shocked at people who are easily impressed by someone with artistic or wood working skills.  These are valuable skills indeed, but have little to do with magic.  I have met people who have all kinds of gold talismans, wood worked tools that were perfectly painted, silk robes etc and yet were severely lacking in the magical power dept.  Don’t confuse the craft of wood working or sewing with magic.

Magic is magic and while it work though a connection to Divine Source, it has little to do with being religious.  Magic is about being spiritual, and spiritual to your own path, not to people, groups or churches who want to tell you what is good and what is bad.  You need to discover your inner direction on your own.

Before we embark on the list, lets take a look at skills that I think a Golden Dawn magician must have.  Naturally this list is not complete and could be fleshed out.  This is a blog, not a book.  

I think it is critical that a strong working knowledge of the system is essential.  I mean seriously, how can you be great at Golden Dawn magic if you have little idea of the system and how it works

Like wise I think it is important to have well-developed astral skills.  ALL MAGIC AT SOME LEVEL IS ASTRAL.  If you seriously do not know how the astral plane works, or how to manage it, your magical skills will be lacking.  The people on my list, I believe had incredible astral skills.

                                                                     Image

The Golden Dawn teaches godform assumption, and developed abilities in this art are essential.  I think it goes far beyond the godforms of the GD.  I think that great magicians have the ability to invoke thought form assumption.  They are not limited to the Egyptian gods, they can assume almost any thought form and take on it positive qualities.

I think it goes without saying that the ability to control the elements and the forces of the macrocosm is critical.  The power of the pentagram and the hexagram must be invoked and used in an effective manner at all times.

Image

An essential skill is the ability to go outside the box and create magical operations that work and are effective.  The teachings of the Order are designed to provide a foundation of knowledge. However a great magician is always studying and learning.  I often think about Mathers and the peas ritual.  It certainly was not classical Golden Dawn, but few could argue that is very effective.  As a matter of fact, the schisms that plague the Golden Dawn current to this very day, may be a result of that powerful magical operation.

Finally, I believe that a forged and honest connection to the Third Order and to ones own Genius is a must.  

I will leave it to you to decide if my list makes sense.  I will not put bio’s of the people listed on this list as you can find them all over the internet.

 

                                                                 

 

The Top 10 Golden Dawn Magicians of All Time:

 

1. S.L. Macgregor Mathers  ( Co- Founder of the Golden Dawn )

2  Alister Crowley               ( Adept in the GD, Partner with Allan Bennett creator of Thelema )

3  Allan Bennett                   ( Personal Student of Mathers, brought Buddism to UK )

4  Florence Farr                   ( Adept and Imperator.  Founder of Sphere Group )

5  Moinia Mathers                 ( Adept and channel of the 5=6 material, contact with Third Order )

6  William Butler Yeats          ( Adept and spiritualist )

7  William Wynn Westcott      ( Co-Founder of the Golden Dawn, Filled with knowledge )

8  R.W. Felkin                        ( Founder of GD offshoot and strong magical connections )

9  Paul Foster Case               ( Founder of B.O.T.A. and Temple Chief of Chicago GD )

My last spot is difficult.  It could be a little know guy name Willian Walker Adkinson who was a co-chief with Paul Foster Case in Chicago and was co-author of the Kbylion or it could be Brodie Innes who ran a temple and remained loyal to Mathers when everyone else schismed.  

 

Please don’t take my list too seriously.  It is just a speculation on my part and the list could change tomorrow if I were to read something new.

Donald Michael Kraig Diagnosed With Pancreatic Cancer – Magic Needed.

January 24, 2014
Donald Michael Kraig

Donald Michael Kraig

On Facebook, Holly Allender Kraig announced that her husband, author and magician Donald Michael Kraig, was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. They are asking for prayers and magical assistance to help get rid of the cancer.

“Don was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in late 2013. It’s a diagnosis, not a death sentence. It is possible to put this into remission. That is the goal, remission. Don is a fighter and is adamant that beating this is already a done deal. I stand beside him as his wife and best friend to help ease him through the battle he’s facing. The community support is amazing. I know he will be healed through all the love, support and healing energies coming his way. This is a done deal!”
For those unfamiliar with Donald Michael Kraig, he is a very influential author and thinker in the realms of ritual magic(k), magical theory, and related practices. Kraig is perhaps best known for Modern Magick: Twelve Lessons in the High Magickal Arts, which was dubbed a “modern-day classic” by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero. Other recent works include a remembrance of author Scott Cunningham, and an occult-themed thriller novel. He’s also an acquisitions editor at Llewellyn Worldwide.

Donald Michael Kraig is not only a noted author and thinker, he’s also a charming, funny, and supportive individual.

Just as Don helped me in his visits to my Fontana home many years ago, so he has helped the entire Golden Dawn and magical community. I know that for years in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn we gave out his book Modern Magick to those thinking of a magical lifestyle. We also suggest the book for all our members as additional reading. Personally, I think Don’s work is a must. I want the magical community to help Don, not for what he has given, but for who he is. He is honest, and dependable, and extremely intelligent. Our community needs more people like him. I therefore call on all magical types to use the limits of your powers to send this cancer into total remission. If some of the printed rituals are to complex you can write me here for something simple. Finally, we need to stick with this. This is not a one time deal. I suggest that you mark this on your calendar. Shoot for one time a week now or more often to banish the cancer,
and then perhaps once a month after that. Even after the good news comes that Don is in Remission, I urge you to keep doing the work once a quarter for the next year or so. Don’t leave this up to memory, write it down in you calendar or put a reminder in your I-Phone.

Golden Dawn Astral Initiation Experience

July 15, 2013

By G.H. Frater P.D.R.
Robert Zink
Imperator General of the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn

From time to time we will be sharing an initiates astral initiation experience. Our Order believes that astral initiation is a valid form of initiation. We believe that when and where possible it should be followed up by physical initiation so as to experience the psycho drama, but as for the spiritual influx of light, it is fully and safely present in astral initiation of the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn. We believe that astral initiation is as safe as any other form of initiation.
The following is a recent experience of one of our initiates into 0=0. We share this as his personal experience, not that it should match yours or any pre-determined experience. After all initiation is personal.

HERE IS THE INITIATION EXPERIENCE:

As a recent initiate to the Esoteric GD I would first like to thank EGD for the initiation experience, that being said I would like to share that experience with the other members and prospective members. I would like to think that my experience will make it’s way to prospective members waiting to begin their own GD initiation. My initiation was an astral initiation. Now my kneejerk opinion on this sort of initiation was that it would lose most if not all of the initiation relevance as well as potency, not to mention authenticity. After all the founders of the GD system didn’t conduct initiation in this manner and would probably roll in their graves were they to catch wind that such initiations were being conducted under the GD name. after serious consideration, I realized that the kneejerk reaction was in fact misguided. I am familiar with astral work so it should be a bit easier for me to experience the initiation in those terms as it is presented. Even so, I was skeptical of an astral initiation producing a “genuine” initiation experience. Never the less, I kept an open mind and went into my initiation. I was more than pleasantly astonished by the results. I share my experience now as a personal endorsement of the astral initiation as conducted through the EGD. I will forego the ritual details to get directly to the results: experiences and information that I receive through astral communication typically crystalize as language more than images, in this case I received both. The first sentence came to me as I stared into the candle flame as it danced in the eastern quadrant. Those words were “the flickering flame is ptah”. This was quickly followed with: “begin your journey–clasp your hands and pierce through the veil–the light cast is love and the brotherhood of man–begin the journey of ages-”. Directly followed a vivid image of what appeared to be an hierophant wearing an ornate crown of gold and a brilliant white light beaming from behind his head and piercing forward. A very distinct voice informed me that the white light was his chakra. What followed was a vivid display of chakra spheres. The first chakra color electric blue constructed cerulean to turquoise. The second electric green constructed emerald to light green-yellow. The third electric fuscia constructed deep brown to fuscia. The chakra display was followed by yet another vivid image of what appeared to be an mezo-american priest crowned with a gold, winged helm with open, ringed eyelets. Shortly after these image displays, a voice spoke out the words “Lux Vel Legis”. I spent a total of an hour in the initiation triangle and will spend some time deciphering the experience. I will say the experience held some humor as well, the voice: “there are deutoronomy verses stranger than the tarot(hierophant)”. emerging from the other side of this experience, I feel invigorated and yes enlightened. Ready to begin work. I rarely if ever share these types of experiences openly as I do now, however I now feel comfortable as in the company of brothers and hold no reservation in sharing these experiences now. Strive forward.–

Real Truth on Astral Initiation into the Golden Dawn.

July 8, 2013

Banner of the East..
Soror Stella Matutina

When we look at one’s initiation what does it truly mean to you, the individual? Is it man validating you and giving you a title, a position, credentials to throw around so loosely that it does not mean anything, or does it mean something far greater?

An initiation is a single journey of all who are of the path of the Old Religionists, the Golden Dawn, the Hermetic, Wicca, Druidism, and all paths associated to works and service to and with the Gods. We all go on an individual journey in life, its’ experiences, our training and studies as an individual. In all of the Ways of Old, that is the paths of the Ancients were all taught as oral traditions, held very sacred their Oaths of Silence that they took (as back then, as it should still be those Oaths were taken before the Gods, and have a high regard to uphold them). Teachers, Mentors, Elders, True Mother’s or Father’s, Adeptus’s and all those of the learned have gotten there through hard work, studies, training, years of practice, and did so through their own dedication and patience to the studies and the tools provided to them.

When we look at the way of the Ancient’s in Sumer, Egypt, the Celtic lands (which are far and wide and covered many lands that today many would not think were Celtic in culture), Roman and Greek and more held sacred the Path of Initiation. The Priests and Priestesses would go to the mountains, temples, caves, and inner sanctuaries to prepare for Initiations by setting up the altars with the candles, incense and the place in which the Priest or Priestess was to be initiated would be placed. From this one would never know what to expect as this rite is very sacred and between The One and the initiate alone. If you look at history and how those Magi’s were Initiated before us, you see a similar pattern in all of them, they all go into the desert, to the top of a mountain, into the forest, and are gone for long periods of time to commune with The One, God, Goddesses and Gods, when we look at all of them they are all given great information and are initiated in the astral.

In The History of Magic by Eliphas Levi, in the chapter entitled Magic and the Revolution there are many stories of regenerating movement from well-known Magi’s dating back to the time of Pharaoh. I will mention two such here, the rest you will need to purchase a copy and read it in full for yourself to understand.

“The name Althotas, or that of Caglistro’s master, is composed of the word Thot, with the syllablesAl and As, which, if read Kabalistically, are Sala, meaning messenger or envoy. The name as a whole therefore signifies: Thot, the messenger of the Egyptians, and such in effect was he whom Caglistro recognised as the master above all others.

“Another title adopted by Caglistro was that of Grand Copht, and his doctrine had the twofold object of moral and physical regeneration. The precepts of moral regeneration according to the Grand Copht were as follows: “You shall go up Mount Sinai with Moses; you shall ascend Calvary; with Phaleg you shall climb Thabor, and shall stand on Carmel with Elias (Essene Teachings) and Mount Carmel is shaped like that of a triangle. Now, according to S.L. MacGregor Mather’s “The Grimoire of Armadel Phaleg is the good angel of Mars (as well as all other Angelic sources). Then we also find in the same work just mentioned, that of the Rod of Moses; it states; “Zainael is the Spirit who did teach unto Moses the methods of availing himself of the Rod with the which he did perform so many miracles in Egypt, and among the Chaldeans. He hath much power to render those rich who avail themselves of his services.” Another mention of Moses states; “Hethatia maketh you see even as Moses saw the benefits which he had received from God, when he was in the Desert of the Land of Midian. These are all spirits and can only be seen and heard in the Astral Realm. There are many more Magi’s who were initiated in the Astral Realm all dating back to the beginning of man and religious sacred rites of regeneration i.e. Astral Initiation.

Also we look at the works of Dennis William Hauck’s, The Emerald Tablet Alchemy for Personal Transformation. This is an excellent work for all to have to find a deeper understanding to the rubrics of the Emerald Tablet and how to apply into your life. But be warned the path in which you will embark on may not be the easiest when you open your heart and mind up to the teachings of Thoth, for it is a journey in which one will come upon calcinations, dissolution and separation. In the 7th chapter entitled Separate the Earth from Fire he says the following; this is based on the Fourth Rubric of the Emerald Tablet; The All the powers of the Above. This is the most difficult transition for many people to pass through as it does deal with the Above which is the realm of the astral.

“The ancients knew exactly what the powers from the Above were like because they experienced them directly within themselves.” Also said, “It has been postulated that 5,000 or so years ago mankind lived in unconscious communion with the gods and followed divine “voices” in times of novel or stressful situations.” Also saying, “The ancients remembered what it was like before full consciousness dawned in man and believed that the mental world of thought and imagination was every bit as real as the physical world in which they found themselves. With the breakdown of the divine connection, the One Mind in man slowly split into duality of rational consciousness, although the archaic ability to exist in both realms is said to have survived in few genuine psychics and prophets.” Furthermore, “Perhaps our thoughts have lost their intrinsic value because there are simply too many of them floating around and because nobody seems to care whether anyone’s thoughts are inherently true or not.” And lastly, “We tend to think that imagination is the same as fantasy that dreams are just image soup that visions are psychotic, that myths are legends are just tall tales, and that our thoughts have no effect on reality. Most of us really believe that the best use that can be made of the power of thinking is to plot, gain the upper hand, make more money, garner more esteem, or get an edge over someone else in the rat race.”

“As the Son of Heaven and Earth, “the initiate has inside himself not only the four earthly elements but also the three heavenly ones, which is why the ancients viewed the individual as a microcosm of the whole universe. The same forces that shaped the cosmos are present in man. This is the meaning of the Doctrine of Correspondences and the whole impetus for spiritual alchemy. No matter how far man has fallen from grace, no matter how tightly shackled to the chains of physicality he has allowed himself to become, there is hope for him because he has all the elements necessary to set himself free. All he has to do is purify the earthly elements in his soul and personality and activate the heavenly elements of his indwelling spirit. This is the Great Work.”

Read about the German mystic Jacob Boehme as his is one of the most incredible of all he was so well mastered that when brought before a panel of eminent theologians was assembled to exam him. They found him to beyond their power to judge.

What does all of this represent? The Astral Self, the Astral Initiation.

Then we have from the Gospel of Phillip; Water and Fire (67, 2-9)—“Soul and spirit have come into being from water and fire. The attendant of the bridal chamber has come into being from water, fire and light. Fire is chrism. Light is fire. I do not mean ordinary fire, which has no form, but other fire, which is pure white in appearance, beautifully bright and imparting beauty.”

There are so many more references to astral encounters, initiations, conceptions, marriages and more that go back through the ages of man. Take the time to learn and find the truth for they are part of our history.

Initiation is a very personal experience and while in many if not all Initiations (that one considers valid) are all performed by man. But when we really look at an Initiation it comes from a far Greater source than we mere ants of humans on this earth, they come from the Gods and Goddesses or from how you see your divine source of life. All true initiations are from the Astral.

This past week on the Friday 28th of June, I did my Astral Initiation into the E.O.G.D. Order. As with any initiation I prepared myself through that of rituals that were needed to prepare my space as well as my spirit, body and mind, did the proper fasting and cleansing, prepared the items needed and took time to mentally prepare myself for the Astral event. Upon the designated hour, I had set up the candles, set the incense, set the tools on my altar and began my journey. I sat still focusing on that of the spirit and the energies that were from the Mental Plane and that of the illuminating lights that connected to my Higher Self my Crown and felt them as they went through me. One never really knows how long they are under in this type of ritual. All of a sudden I felt this amazing energy over me with the wings spread far and wide, white in colour and the head of the Ibis, I felt Thoth all around me carrying me on my new journey into this Initiation. I had no words for what followed; it was beyond words, beyond ones’ description or that of anyone else’s comprehension of such a journey beyond in that of the Astral.

As first a practicing Old Religionist I do know how powerful the astral realm is, how dangerous it can be if one travels there without knowing how to protect themselves from the spirits, but it is the one form of Initiation in which is the Higher of them all, it is Validated by that of the Gods and in truth the only one who can validate any initiation is the Gods and no other. I have had many journeys to the Astral and one of them I received a message about Future Earth and following that I came upon an article that was written by another in Arizona who too was spoken to by Ea on the future of earth which validated my vision, while following about 6 months later NASA saying they had found a system in which could be a future place for humanity. It was as I had seen it in my vision. All I will say on this is that it was a place and time in which humans only communicate via the Mental. The Astral is very real.

An experience and Words of Wisdom from a former experience I went through many years back following an Initiation in which many tried to claim was invalid due to the envy of man.

I learned long ago from a wise woman, my “True Mother”, that initiation is not validated by the hands or man, but by the hands of the Gods it is only they who can truly initiate you. Many years ago I went through a great trial, I was a solitary and then later joined an online school and as I grew within myself I felt that it was time for initiation, however, there was no one in my community who could perform this ritual, as I was a solitary, so I self-initiated to the Gods at that time I followed a more Celtic path. Later as I continued with my training I was invited by a local group to audit their coven and see if I wanted to join, at a later time I did so, and within the next four months I had resigned. In following this I was still with this online school and had met online a woman who claimed to be a High Priestess in the Wiccan community out of Canada, I studied under her and later she did my next initiation via the internet. I prepared as I would for any initiation, fasted, prepared oils, soaps, and ritual garb and tools for the ceremony, it was a beautiful and powerful journey. When at a later time I had asked if she had filed my papers with her organisation, she kept putting me off, so I did what any person with a mind would do, I sought out and contacted them myself; boy did I get a rude awakening, not only was she not a part of their organisation but she had stolen their watermark logo for my certificate. But the HP of the organisation instead of being a person of love was out right rude, and without asking anything of me told me that my Initiation was not valid because they only do them in person at their location and it has to be performed by one of the heads to be so valid in the eyes of the Gods. I was destroyed, or at the time I thought I was, full betrayal by someone who claimed to be in of the gods, they were not at all out for the Gods but for their own puffed up egos.

Shortly following this I had bumped into the old HP of the local coven I had been a part of where I live and he had the audacity to tell me I should step down as a Priestess as I was not ready and only when man blessed would I be; now I was already over the betrayal from the other at this time, so I sat and thought long and hard about this situation. Flowing this I had a vision, it was of Dr. Leo L. Martello and he had led me to my “True Mother”, we had many amazing conversations over the next year and half and then I went to Salem, MA for the first time and we met and from there I have learned so very much and gained so much in knowledge and wisdom. “The one thing she taught me and it stays with me every day. We were in the hotel lobby where I was staying and she cast circle it was on Samhain night and as she placed her hand on me she said the following, “No man can validate a Priestess of the Gods, only they can if you lift your arms and eyes to the heavens and say I am of the Gods and they give you a sign that is all the validation one ever needs, the rest is just icing”.

Can an Initiation be revoked by those Gods who so validate it, yes. If we do not stand up to the work and service for the Gods and to humanity in an honourable manner in helping those who seek us out when in need of healing, protection, bringing justice to those who have been falsely harmed or accused and so on. Are Initiations in most cases done by the hand of man, yes, and no, if an Initiation is done correctly with then the HP and HPs or Hierophant, Arch Druid, etc they are simply the vehicles for the Gods.

An Astral Initiation is one of the most pure forms of initiation at the hands of the Gods. Do all experience it in the same manner, no, of course not, do all feel the experience, I do not know for sure. Is it best to have years of training prior to such an Initiation, yes, in that way you are better prepared and you know what to expect when you entrée the Astral.

So, Always remember; when someone tells you, you are not valid because you were not taken in by the hand of man to be initiated, please ignore them for they do not know what they are talking about. The only form of true initiation is that of the Astral. If you are fortunate to be of a family who understands this and who themselves while doing the true work and service of the Gods performs an initiation pay attention to how much more powerful it is than one from one who seeks only his or her own self recognition. You will feel the difference from within, as one will be truly guided by the hands of the Gods and the other will have no power at all.

The Equal Arm Cross & Your Magic

June 30, 2013

By Robert Zink
G.H. Frater P.D.R.

The equal arm cross, many and great are it’s mysteries.
One truth that is often ignored is the fact that the vertical arm indicates our need for spiritual connection and the horizontal arm suggest our need to improve our physical world. We cannot do one without the other. The position of power is in the center of the cross. These two arms provide the synergy that allows one form of magic to help us connect with our Genius and one form of magic to help us get a job, new car, home etc. AND DON’T YOU DARE FEEL GUILTY FOR DOING MAGIC TO ADVANCE YOUR PHYSICAL STATE OR POSITION IN LIFE, anymore than you should feel guilty for connecting to the HIGHER.

Both arms the physical and the material are important to the magician.

Golden Dawn Magic & the 770 Current of Light.

March 26, 2013

doreangel

By Robert Zink a.k.a G.H. Frater P.D.R.

There has been some questions about the famous 770 current that a number of Temples employ in the Golden Dawn tradition as of late. You will notice that members within these various groups will sign a letter, or end a conversation with the numbers 770. YOu might also notice they will use it on their website etc.

This whole thing began with me, many years ago, long before any of these people even knew about the whole 770 thing. I was living in Las Vegas. Back in the 80′s there was a wonderful little occult shop in Vegas called, Bell, Book and Candle. I don’t know if it is there anymore, but there was a wonderful man named Lucky who worked at this shop. I enjoyed talking with Lucky and he seemed to have some serious knowledge of magic and the occult. Lucky provided a nice sounding board. My mentor who passed the G.D. teachings of Mathers had long passed and my other Adept mentor was sick at the time.

One day I told Lucky that I had been making contact with an angelic spirit that had presented itself to me both astrally, through invocation of the Spirit and physically. This Angel was a type of servant to the Chiefs of the Third Order. ( These are the Chiefs that Mathers writes about. )

I began testing the angel, and asking this angel to predict certain things. I still was not convinced, until Lucky suggested that I ask the angel what it true nature was, what it’s purpose was? One day I was walking home from my business and met a guy who asked for some food. I don’t always hand out money to people who ask for it, because I am concerned I might be furthering their drug addiction, however on this day, I gave him a 5 spot and and he asked if he could bless me. I said, “ Sure.” He offered me a blessing with these words, “ may you be filled with love, truth and knowledge.”

The next day we made contact with the angel. The angel used the same words, as the man on the street, the angel said, love, truth and knowledge. He told us that these qualities were the pillars of Light in the world. The angel then shared with us a wild, strange Kaballah. I was given a obsure gematria by this angel. Gematria is where letters are translated into numbers. Certain numbers have a relationship to other things that share the same number. Gematria is generally practiced in Hebrew and Greek because the alphabet is also the numbers, but it can be done in any language. The angel shared with me the numbers that transliterate into Love, Truth, and Knowlege. Those number were, and still are, 770.

Years later as the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn grew in size and depth, I began sharing this with other Adepts within our Order. They felt that this Gematria should be shared with the Outer Order and decided to teach it within the Neophyte grade. While our Order has taken some hits, and gone through some changes, and some of the lodges or Temple have gone their own direction, there is one thing that bonds us together, 770, Love, Truth and Knowledge.

Finally,in this blog, I have decided to not share the name of the angel, out of respect. I also have decided not to share how the gematria is derived, as it is still being taught in various G.D.Lodges around the world. I would say this however, you don’t need the numbers to invoke the power of Love, Truth and Knowledge. Simply close your eyes and focus on the Divine Supernals of the Tree of Life. Invoke their presence into your sphere of sensation.
Do this and when you begin to experience the glory of Light and the presence of the Divine, you will have invoked the power of Love, Truth and Knowledge. 770
