Models Of Magic The Energy Model

Models Of Magic The Energy Model Cover
The rise of the energy model in the West is marked primarily by the appearance of Mesmerism towards the end of the 18th century. Anton Mesmer, who was not an occultist but who was on the other hand regarded by his contemporaries to be a "miracle worker" of sorts, rediscovered amongst other things the ancient healing disciplines of hypnosis and magnetism. He popularized his theory of "animal magnetism" which he saw as a subtle force inherent in organisms, but he also made heavy use of metal magnets for healing purposes.

While the French Revolution put a temporary end to Mesmer's movement, his ideas were not lost. They were taken up by a number of others, primarily occultists, who drew on them while developing their own theories of magic. One of the first to do so was Bulwer Lytton of the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (SRIA), who postulated the existence of a subtle energy which he termed Vril, possibly deriving from Latin virilitas or "force, power, strength". (This was actually the model for the naming of Bovril, from Latin "bovis" or "ox", and Vril or "life force".) We can observe interesting parallels to this concept in the vitalist theories of biology which emerged around the same time. Other exponents of the energy model of magic (not then so termed) were Reichenbach with his concept of Od, Eliphas Levi and his Astral Light and Mme. Blavatsky, who adopted the theories of Prana from Yoga physiology. This was also the time when anthropology and ethnology discovered the Polynesian concept of Mana and Asiatic scholars began to concern themselves with the Chinese principle of Ki or Ch'i (Chi). The latter two go to show, of course, that the idea of subtle energies utilized by magic is far older than the 18th century. In fact, we can observe it already in early Shamanic cultures. Shamanic magic is very frequently a mixture between spirit and energy model, e.g. the shaman may call upon his spirits or gods to give him "power" or he may, vice versa, use his power to extort favors from them.

In its pure form, however, the shaman or magician is not in need of spirits and other entities. The world is viewed as being "vitalized" by subtle forces or energies and his primary task consists in mastering the art of perceiving and manipulating them. As all phenomena are basically energetic in nature, the existence of an otherworld is not strictly required. Thus, the magician is more of an "energy dancer" than a "fence rider" or go-between. But even here the key to the perception, charging and general utilization of these forces is again the magical trance or, as Chaos Magic terms it, gnosis.

Theories and practices pertaining to the energy model can be found with many magical authors but it has seen its real, large scale popularity only since the seventies of our century when the general influx of Eastern thinking (pace the Hippie movement) made concepts such as chakra and kundalini work a mainstay of most occult disciplines. Strong energy model elements can also be found in Franz Bardon's system of "electromagnetic fluids", "condensators" etc.

White Stains

White Stains Cover

Book: White Stains by Aleister Crowley

White Stains is a poetic work written by English author and occultist Aleister Crowley under the pseudonym "George Archibald Bishop". It was published in 1898 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

White Stains contains various poems in both English and French which can also be regarded as individual works. The major part of these poems show an obviously sexual content. Crowley claimed that he had written White Stains for the purpose of rewriting Richard von Krafft-Ebing's Psychopathia Sexualis in a lyrical form. (from

Each Person As A Star

Each Person As A Star Cover "The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the State but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in thought and dull in feeling." -Albert Einstein, Mein Weltbild (1931)

After the proclamations of Nuit and Hadit, there comes one of the most important statements to Thelema in the third line of Liber AL:

“Every man and Every Woman is a star.”

By this is meant that “we are all free, all independent, all shining gloriously, each one a radiant world” and further that “the Individual is the Autarch.” In the same sense that the sun, as a star, is center of the solar system in the physical macrocosm, every man and every woman is understood to be a sort of microcosmic star and center of his or her own system. “A star is an individual identity; it radiates energy, it goes, it is a point of view. Its object is to become the whole by establishing relations With Other stars. Each such relation is an Event: it is an act of Love under Will” - Each individual is “an aggregate of such experiences, constantly changing with each fresh event, which affects him or her either consciously or subconsciously.” Certainly, from a psychological standpoint, it can be easily understood that we are all centers of our own universe and also ‘aggregates of experience’ as our own memories show. Further, stars are self-luminous implying that we derive power and strength from within ourselves and not an outside source (explained in depth later), and also stars are constantly in motion interacting with the infinite gravitational pulls of the infinite other stars and systems.

Thelema posits that Hadit is “the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star.” Crowley writes “He is then your own inmost divine self; it is you, and not another, who are lost in the constant rapture of the embraces of Infinite Beauty.” In fact, Nuit tells us “Be thou Hadit, my secret centre, my heart & my tongue!” showing that we are intimately interconnected with divinity, mirroring the general Eastern sentiment of the soul’s link to God and the sentiment seen in the West in mystics like Meister Eckhart and Miguel de Molinos:

"Thou art to know, that thy Soul is the Center, Habitation, and the Kingdom of God.”

In a word, by saying “every man and every woman is a star,” we assert both the individual’s sovereignty and their divinity. Just as physical stars each have their unique course in the span of space, each individual is understood to have their own unique Will. In fact, “Thelema” itself means “Will” and this is the foundation of the entire philosophy of Thelema. It is said:

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”
“There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.”

These two statements clearly establish that everything in Thelema revolves around the dictum of “do what thou wilt.” As Crowley often noted, this does not mean, “do what you like” but is a command to perform one’s “true” or “pure will” and nothing else. Liber AL proclaims, “Thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that, and no other shall say nay.” Now we can see the general point-of-view of existence formulated in Thelema: each individual is considered as a “star” whose sole right or duty is to perform their Will. In the core of this star is Hadit and about the star are the infinite space & possibilities of Nuit. We have established that each individual is at the center of his or her own universe, a “secret centre, heart, & tongue”[14] of the divine, each performing their unique Will amidst Nuit, Infinite Space.

The Book Of Thoth A Short Essay On The Tarot Of The Egyptians Being The Equinox Volume Iii No V

The Book Of Thoth A Short Essay On The Tarot Of The Egyptians Being The Equinox Volume Iii No V Cover

Book: The Book Of Thoth A Short Essay On The Tarot Of The Egyptians Being The Equinox Volume Iii No V by Aleister Crowley

Crowley sets his whimsical, humorous (notorious?) writing style aside, to take a deep, reverent look at The Tarot. This book contains more information about The Tarot and the Creation of The Tarot than numerous other books combined. This is not a "fluffy" book for amateurs, but a well-written and researched work connecting The Tarot with The Qabalah and Astrology. If the tiny booklet in the Tarot package left you wanting, this is the book you desire to fulfill your hunger and thirst for more knowledge. I have been reading books about The Tarot for ten years and "The Book of Thoth" has quenched my thirst.

However, I also recommend purchasing "The Tarot Handbook: Practical Applications of Ancient Symbols," by Angeles Arrien ("Tarot Symbols from a Psychological, Mythological, and Cross-Cultural Perspective"). "The Tarot Handbook...." by Arrien, uses Illustrations of "The Thoth Deck," by Crowley and Lady Frieda Haris to explain the Jungian Psychology of the system, and gives a Helpful Overview of Interpreting the Thoth deck.

So-far, "The Thoth Deck" is the BEST deck I have ever found (I collect Numerous decks) aside from "The Ceremonial Magick Deck" (by Lon Duquette) & "The Masonic Tarot" (which is hard to find). Nearly every Serious Tarot User/Student I know uses The Thoth Deck, with wonderful & Accurate Results.

I do suggest, however, finding the Palm-sized Thoth deck, as opposed to the Oversized Deck--which is harder to manipulate. The cards work on a principle of Psychokenisis combined with Jungian Psychology. But, whatever works for you, personally. "The Book of Thoth" is a great asset to any Tarot Library and a good place to start studying the System. However, many people need to begin with a simple deck, such as Rider-Waite, before delving into the in-depth study of Crowley's works.

Aleister Crowley's writing (in general) certainly is one of the most complex styles that I have come across. Quite a learned man, however one must realize to bypass the content of his words and see through them as if they were covers to different tombs of knowledge, understanding and wisdom. His Book of Thoth (Egyptian Tarot) may be his best work and seeming most thought out (aside from Magick: Book 4). To buy the book is not enough, one surely would need the card set as well to get the full effect of his descriptions of the cards. Introducing the Tarot in history as well as the inflential men of the Tarot. Highly regarding Eliphas Levi and his book Transcendental Magic: Its Dogma and History as one the best and classic works on the Tarot (also suggested is Paul Foster Cases book "The Tarot: The Wisdom of the Ages").

I would say that Tarot Divnitors are not advised for this book because Crowley does not use the cards to fortell anothers future, but rather as meditative devices to alter ones consciousness and peer into the unknown world, seeing the other universe - that is prophecy. After explaining the relationship of the Qaballah, he moves on to the deck itself beginning like most with the Fool. Going through all 22 Trumps and 56 Minor cards deciphering the cards himself and placing it in word symbols for you to figure out. Its not often one can understand this at first reading. Many readings are neccessary, as well as looking through many other books of Tarot and occultism to begin to unlock Crowleys 'tombs.' You will soon find yourself not reading it, but referring to it like one uses a dictionary.

If one wants a fresh new look at what Crowley is talking implying in all of his sublime wordiness, I highly and strongly reccomend Timothy Leary's book "Game of Life" and "Info-Psychology." The former is a dedication to Crowleys work on the Tarot told in Leary's style (which he equates evolution with Tarot), while the latter is Leary's own neuraliterate book which ties in with the former. The Book of Thoth is the most original book to date on the Tarot system and highly reccomended for anyone looking to understand truly what the cards mean, as well as Crowleyites and occultists in general. A wonderful piece of work!

Thelema And The Number 93

Thelema And The Number 93 Cover One day you may hear or read one Thelemite say or write the number 93 using it as a greeting and a good bye. The significance of the number 93 has to do with Gemantria. Since thelema is a Greek word it has a numerical value much like Hebrew words do.

Ex: Thelema (9+5+30+8+40+1=93) a Greek word meaning Will which adds up to 93
Agape (1+3+1+80+8=93) a Greek work for Love also adds up to 93

Since the basic Elements of Thelema read out as Will and Love under Will you may see this written out of 93 93/93. Just thought I would share.

War And Conflict

War And Conflict Cover
Liber AL vel Legis, as mentioned in earlier installments, is not merely a step into the future but is also a fulfillment of the wisdom of the past. In the past, war was respected and understood more clearly than in these days. Joseph Campbell explains about the cultures of the past that, “There is… the cruel fact to be recognized that killing is the precondition of all living whatsoever: life lives on life, eats life, and would otherwise not exist. To some this terrible necessity is fundamentally unacceptable, and such people have, at times, brought forth mythologies of a way to perpetual peace. However, those have not been the people generally who have survived in what Darwin termed the universal struggle for existence. Rather, it has been those who have been reconciled to the nature of life on this earth. Plainly and simply: it has been the nations, tribes, and peoples bred to mythologies of war that have survived to communicate their life-supporting mythic lore to descendants.”5 In this sense, war is understood to be a sort of symbol of the struggle of life and the necessary expression thereof.Those who affirm life and its struggle for existence are those who “have been reconciled to the nature of life on this earth,” and Thelema represents one of the most modern fulfillments of this life-affirming view of the universe.

Crowley explained his distaste for the motif of denying or distorting this life-affirming view when he said, “My primary objection to Christianity is 'gentle Jesus, meek and mild,' the pacifist, the conscientious objector, the Tolstoyan, the 'passive resister.'… 'Jesus' himself, in the legend, 'set his face as a flint to go to Jerusalem,' with the foreknowledge of his fate. But Christians have not emphasized that heroism since the Crusades. The sloppy sentimental Jesus of the Sunday-school is the only survivor; and the War killed him, thank Ares!”6 Here Crowley implies that the true image of Jesus should be one who ‘set his face as a flint to go to Jerusalem’ without fear or weakness, which brings back once again the images of Jesus bringing “not… peace, but a sword.”7 We see that a “mythology,” a symbolic understanding of the universe, which embraces war is one that acknowledges the inherent conflict in life but nonetheless affirms it all. Crowley emphatically declares, “All leaders of men are active, finding pleasure even in toil, hardship, and defeat: they accept every Event as proper to their chosen course of action, and conquer even when they are beaten down for the moment. They die at the crisis of the battle, with failure certain; yet they rejoice, having lived and loved and fought and done their will; those for whose cause they fought will reap at last where they have sowed” (emphasis added) This attitude of conquering all obstacles and, most importantly, rejoicing in both happiness and hardship is an important angle to interpret the use of “conquering” and “war” in the tradition of Thelema and the text of Liber AL vel Legis.

Further concerning war, Campbell explains, “Heraclitus declared war to be the creator of all great things; and in the words again of Spengler, ‘The one who lacks courage to be a hammer comes off in the role of the anvil.’ Many a sensitive mind, reacting to this unwelcome truth, has found nature intolerable, and has cried down all those best fit to live as ‘wicked,’ ‘evil,’ or ‘monstrous,’ setting up instead, as a counter-ideal, the model of him who turns the other cheek and whose kingdom is not of this world.”9 In this sense, the mythologies of “war” are understood to be “life-affirming” or “world-affirming” in contrast to those mythologies of “peace” which posit a perfect land in another world. Examples of this are abound in all cultures of the world. Christianity’s notion of heaven in the clouds is the most obvious reference, but there are also other traditions that attempt to escape this world including Pure Land Buddhism, or Amidism, which is a sect of Mahayana Buddhism that believes one is supposedly guaranteed rebirth into the pure land of enlightenment if one merely has devotion towards or prays to “Amitabha Buddha.” These are both views of religious traditions that cause the aspirant to look outside of him or herself for salvation, an attitude fundamentally rejected by Thelema.

Sigil Magic For The Professional Magician

Sigil Magic For The Professional Magician Cover
I will assume that you are already initiated into the secrets of Austin Spare's sigil magic. Consulting with my clients as a professional magician, I am always confronted with the same question: Is the client's will identical with my own? If it is, there should be no problem involved in charging the sigil in the client's stead by myself. (The client, one must remember, will usually not be familiar with the basic tenets of sigil magic or even magic in general and will probably hesitate to try it out for himself.) However, I believe as a matter of principle that everybody should vaccinate his will for himself. I do not feel happy with charging myself i.e. my subconscious with other people's desires. For example: if Mrs. X wants to be brought together with Mr. Y by a sigil (love spell), it could be interesting to know what might happen if the pertinent sigil were charged by myself.

Accordingly I had to find a means to implant sigils into my individual clients in such a way that they are not aware of what they are really doing. At first, talking with the client, I will try to find the "smallest common denominator" out of a tangled mass of multiple desires. This will continue until the client is able to word his or her statement of will (henceforth to be termed "will sentence") in plain and unambiguous language. Following this all contact between the client and myself will be abandoned for two or tree weeks. In the meantime I will construct the sigil, usually employing the word method, and sketch it on a piece of parchment. Very often the client's name will be encoded applying the magical camea of the planet pertinent to the client's desire. I may then supplement the sigil with this personalized glyph. Then I will outline a short ritual for the client in which will be hidden the charge proper of the sigil (employing either the mantric method or a variation of the so-called "death posture").

After a while I will send the client this constructed sigil by mail including instructions on how to charge it plus possible additional admonitions, if necessary. Most probably the client will have forgotten the precise wording of his/her will sentence by now; neither will he or she be able to draw any conclusions from these strange glyphs. After having been charged the sigil can be sealed and constantly worn in a locket, it can also be put perma-nently in view e.g. as a wall decoration. Some of my clients have placed or hung their sigils nicely framed in their office rooms.

To charge a sigil the following method is very effective. The client arrives for consultation. In some cases has to bring along some substance imbibed with his or her Odic. During a small ritual client must close his/her eyes and place the odic substance on the sigil which will be lying open in front of him/her. Then I will take the client's finger and prick it quickly and sharply with a small chirurgical lancet. After the blood drop has been smeared onto the sigil, the latter will be folded and sealed immediately. I then admonish the client to bear in mind that this talisman must never get into other people's hands. This charging method is especially effective in working with protection or "antipersonnel mine" sigils.

Here are some examples relating to client's feedback:

30.04. Sigil as wall decoration
24.06. Business enterprises developed well.
12.07. Protection/defense sigil charged employing chirurgical lancet.
14.07. Client feels well and secure.
23.06. Sigil as a defense "antipersonnel mine" with codification of client's name by the magical camea of Mars, charged with lancet.
09.10. "Mine" fully operative: sickness and accidents of 2-3 enemies.
11.10. Sigil employed as a wall decoration.
11. Business successful. Sale of real estate to a monastry (!) has been agreed upon.
27.12. Sigil, mantric charge.
14.02. Client's partner becomes more friendly and loving.
18.03. Partnership satisfactory.
17.06. Sigil charged spastically by myself in client's stead.
18.06. Shortly before the potential buyer arrived for inspection in the afternoon, the last seat in the coffeehouse (sales object) had been taken, suggesting excellent business; immediately after inspection number of customers decreased again.
07.12. Fast charge of a "combat sigil".
21.12. The idea incorporated by the sigil incarnates as a conscious wish in the target person's love partner.

Magick And Will

Magick And Will Cover
Magick has been defined quite accurately as the "Science and Art of causing change to occur, in conformity with Will." It follows, then, that every intentional act is a magickal act. Magick is the science and art of living. The modern custom of spelling magick with a "k" has been adopted in order to distinguish between the Holy Art and the sleight-of-hand tricks of stage performers.

Arthur C. Clarke has stated that "any sufficiently advanced technology will appear to be magic to to those with lesser technologies." For this reason, the magickal arts have been shrouded in mystery and an air of supernatural nonsense, which stands in the way of many serious students. It must be understood that magick is quite natural, and quite effective. Recent developments in psychology have validated many magickal principles, particularly the work of Carl G. Jung and his colleagues. Magick is the realization and utilization of Man's True Nature.

While all magick is working with the same forces, any powerful force can be used for various ends, and so magick is often separated into classes or schools such as White/Grey/Black, or similar labels. White magick is more properly understood as mysticism, because its sole purpose is the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Thus, white magick is sometimes referred to as the Yoga of the West. Grey magick is really what most people think of when they think of magick, except for the ignorant few who think of all magick as "black". Grey magick is the practice of manifesting the will or desire of the magician. It is extremely important that the magician be sure that this manifestation is in line with his/her will, not just a petty desire, or they will suffer the consequences. Black magick is the name given to all magickal acts which pander to the weakness and avarice of the magician, and for that reason are ultimately self-detrimental. The concept of black magick has been clouded by a great deal of self-righteousness and false morality over the years. The idea of lodges of black magicians is absurd, but is used as a tool to strike fear and to slander the reputations of good people.

Real magick is performed in a place beyond "good and evil", but it is foolish for a magician to manifest that which is not in their best interest. For this reason, many magickal Orders and Masters insist that the student be well versed in the practices of white magick, union with the Higher or True Self. In this way, the student may learn what is best suited for them, and will not allow their grey magick to fall prey to the petty desires which are injurious to them self.

A distinction is sometimes made between Low Magick and High Magick, or Sympathetic/Natural Magick and Ceremonial Magick. The Low/High labels should not be understood as a judgement on the quality or morality of either methodology. Rather, the terms derive from the fact that Ceremonial or High Magick developed among the people of the cities, usually built on high ground. The more natural forms of magick, Low Magick, developed among the "pagans" and farmers of the lower rural lands. Over time, the practitioners of Natural and Ceremonial Magick have at many times blended traditions, and very few of the modern magickal traditions are exclusively Low or High Magick.

The 20th century has seen a great revival in the occult arts. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, many organizations like the Golden Dawn and the Ordo Templi Orientis sprang up in Europe. Great minds like Eliphas Levi, Aleister Crowley and Helena Blavatsky helped to organize the useful information and discard the nonsense. Publications like The Equinox have set a scientific standard for the study and practice of magick. In more recent decades, the work of Gerald Gardner, Doreen Valiente, Margaret Murray and others has led to the Wiccan movement, reviving the old pagan systems of Europe.

But this modern renaissance is, in reality, nothing new. Magick is, has always been, and will always be an important part of human culture and society. It is unfortunate that this form of personal development was outlawed and despised by the mainstream Christians, for much of the wisdom of the ancients has been lost. To that which we do have, we are only now rediscovering the keys. The systems of alchemy, astrology, Qabalah, Goetia, Tarot, the Enochian magick of Dr. John Dee, and many more are beginning to coalesce into a meaningful and coherent tradition of Modern Magick.

Magick is not the evil, supernatural hodge-podge of magic words and flashy light shows which the ignorant make it out to be. It can, however, be a dangerous process. The magician deals with many aspects of themself, their environment and the divine which may be psychologically traumatic. The mind is pushed to its limits and beyond, and if proper precautions are not taken, obsession and insanity can occur. Anyone with neurological or psychological disorders should consult their doctor before taking up magickal practice. Magick must be afforded the respect and discipline that would be given to a martial art, and the care and integrity given to a system of psychotherapy.

However, magick is not outside the reach of the dedicated student. There is much to be learned, many ordeals to be passed and a multitude of obstacles along the way, but there is no path nobler, more full of delight and ecstacy, than the magickal path.

The card definitions in the books are unrelentingly positive and based entirely on the querant's psychological state and perceptions.
