When I'm alone I always recite the Holy Books aloud, it seems to strike something within me I can't really describe. I try to do it several times a day.

Agreed & recommended.

Speaking of Holy Books, I had them on my lap during the car accident I was in several days ago, the officer that was there was surprised that we all survived, since an accident of that severity usually ended up fatal. We hit a oil patch then ended up flipping 3 times, we landed upside down, the only thing that kept the top of the vehicle from caving in on us was my seat(the front passenger seat), which was perfectly vertical. It was interesting because that morning I had this strange urge to bring them along with me. I'm not saying that the books "saved" me, it was just a very strange course of events that led up to the accident.

Wow!

Id take that to be quite significant, yes. Actually, Im contemplating different interpretations, enuff said. Strange things usually happens when engaged in magick, it is half the fun, but these experiences are personal.Thus I will not offer any of my own veiws on what happened.

But great anyway Wesley, great. Which book was it?

haha, it was still a good attempt though.

It was the Holy Books of Thelema, all of the holy texts combined into one book. I have sat and thought about the reasons as to why things happened as they did, I came to the conclusion that the events were no mere coincidence, that unseen forces finally gave me what I wanted. A glimpse into the mind that is unsure of certain life or death, the state your mind goes in during a time of unstoppable tragedy(I like to examine how the mind reacts to different things, and I believe you can only truly know what goes on in the mind when you experience first hand, rather than reading about it in a book, or etc.). So, technically, I see the accident as a ritual in itself, since I do believe I gained quite a bit of knowledge and wisdom from it. I just....don't want it happening again.

By now some are probably asking "Who would be crazy enough to consider a car crash a ritual?" Well, it brought great stimulation to the mind and to the senses, a sort of ecstasy ran through my body that I can't describe, and it brought me knowledge after meditating upon it, so why not call this experience a ritual? Maybe within time I can see some symbolic imagery that is contained within the hunk of metal that once was a car.

Well, who would be "crazy" enough to belive in magick anyway? And who would be crazy enough to disbelieve it?
Think about it, half the globe, renouncing something they have no experience with, yet swallowing whole any package with the label "science" attached to it...(girlish giggle)...then beeing clearly and openly in distress every friday the 13th!
Nothing beats a real life Magick experience, and something like that....yes, I see what you mean.

93 93_Wesley_418!

Fascinating!
You should write about this in your diary if you havent allready!
This experience can perhaps be a very usefull one in the future, and it seems you gained from it allready so who knows how much more there is to gain later 🙂
I was thrown off of a balcony and that led me to Thelema in the first place, so accidents can truly have magnicifent effects on ones life.
Atleast when you can see how it eventually worked out many years later.

I discovered this site only recently and I've already found this thread to be of immense interest and help. Thank you all for your informed and focused contributions.

I'd lost contact with Thelema for quite a number of years, keeping daily Star Rubies as my only anchor.

Thanks in part to this thread, I've woven Resh back into my daily routine, and I must confess that after so long without it, I now find it something of a revelation.

So simple, and yet so powerful. It's almost as if you are planting spiritual touchstones in time and space throughout the day. They hang there like stars in your consciousness, ignited through speech, each pouring into the next, until all becomes part of a greater vortex or spiral propelling itself forwards.

In short, through Resh, I'm starting to discover a newfound sense of momentum and groundedness.

I still catch myself halfway through some meals hurriedly dashing out a belated Will, but that will come with time.

Next, I'll be looking into some yoga or tai chi. I haven't yet decided which.

It's great to have this immense electronic well of thoughts and experiences to dip into each day. The waters here are truly sweet.

In fact, I'm only now realizing just how thirsty I've been.

Thanks again,

93

They dont "look" like anything specific or definite.

That is one very subjective and artistic impression of them. I would actually recommend NOT using that because they are contaminating your natural symbolic perception of them.

So do you visualise them in a specific manner or just leave this aside waiting for what will "appear". Do you rely on vision or maybe sound or smell, etc.? How you perceive them?

LBRP once or twice a day

Reguli

Asana

Tattwas or Tarot contemplation

drawing / sketchbook meditation

I intend to expand this practice into the day with Resh or perhaps performing the LBRP at set times daily.

Informative thread, thanks for sharing all!

These days I go through phases of daily work to 'fallow' periods depending on all sorts of things.

I observe Liber Resh four times daily when possible; in practise I have found that it is more likely to be three as I am usually asleep at some stage - but I regard it as absolutely essential process to, at an early stage, do the complete four-Resh salutations for a period of several months (say one Solar season), strictly at the four exact times, and note the results, in order to recognise what it is that it can do for you.

Star Ruby and Reguli have over the last decade evolved into and become replaced by something else combining them plus some of my own continually developing material, which owes something to insights provided by Kenneth Grant, Nema, Michel Bertiaux, and others. A glove that fits Crowley does not necessarily fit me - although I may like the fabric of which it has been made and its patterns.

In this context I also recommend Nema's book Maat Magick, wherein she presents a simple rite called the 8-fold Banishing, which, once 'nailed' through repeated memorised practise, I have found to be quite worth the effort (and in some ways more satisfying than the Star Ruby of Crowley).

However busy I am, I strive to connect with my Greater Self through a simple centring observance every evening upon retiring, involving asana pranayama (which comes automatically whenever I decide to "work" now), and dharana. Sometimes I do so in a mandala rite of some sort (of which the Star Ruby etc. are types), sometimes not.

I find the practise of keeping a magical journal has become the single most important thing of all, the lynch-pin of the whole praxis.

My memory is hazy on this, but I'm fairly certain that "Iynges,Teletarchai,Daemonos,Synoches," is derived from The Chaldean Oracles. You may find what you need there.

Hello all I just found this topic and didn't want to open a new one but I found this very interesting as I am new to Thelema myself and had my Minerval in March.
Right now due to job issues and moving to a new house in the near future I can't go to my weekly meetings so I study and practice on my own.

I get up in the morning and do the Star Ruby...then Liber Resh then some meditation and Yoga.......at lunch time I say Will...do the LBRP and Liber Resh and in the evenings I do the mass of the Phoenix, Liber Resh and Will with my dinner and some enochian work and before I go to bed I meditate and LBRP and Liber Resh.

One a week I perform Liber Samekh and do evocation work and try to participate in the Gnostic Mass when I get the chance....

And I started Kundalini Yoga classes last month.

Love is the Law....Love under Will

I follow the de Cultu regimen with a few other elements added

My morning Resh is preceded with a quick purification rinse of my face and hands, and my daily yoga is accompanied by a Tai Chi or Ba Gua Zhang form

I do Will before meals

I do a tarot reading every day

I do a daily Bornless ritual

I practice setting up dream incubation and control before I go to bed

I also do a purification bath before bed

I create and charge a sigil every day

and daily affirmations and mindfulness

I'm curious, does anyone else incorporate any PGM magick in to their regular practice?  Besides the Bornless, obviously. For example, I use the Adoration to Phre each morning and the Hidden Stele in conjunction with the Bornless.

Thanks for reviving an interesting subject and sharing impressive daily retinue...you mentioned your facility with the Mass of the Phoenix in another thread is that a daily, I know you don't dally, so excuse me for not knowing the code, thought suppose I could come up with what PGM stands for...or de cult regime...anyways it would seem that you are exploring with the "Bornless" as a foundational substrate that lends itself to creative explorations and growth upon your path.

Thank you.

Yes, that is another part of my daily practice, that would fall under De Cultu

 I know you don't dally, so excuse me for not knowing the code, thought suppose I could come up with what PGM stands for..

 

PGM stands for Papyri Graecae Magicae, aka the Greek Magickal Papyri

 

or de cult regime.

That's the daily practice Crowley mentioned in the Book of Wisdom or Folly:

https://hermetic.com/crowley/book-of-wisdom-or-folly/omicron

 

anyways it would seem that you are exploring with the "Bornless" as a foundational substrate that lends itself to creative explorations and growth upon your path.

I've done Liber Samekh, and keeping a daily practice of performing it at least once a day just made sense to me.   I've found it just a useful practice in general.

As Katrice mentioned in a prior thread it stands for Papyri Graecæ Magicæ
 
The standard English translation by Betz is available online
 
The most famous of the spells is that of the "Headless One" of the Stele of Jeu the Ζωγραφος  (PGM V. 96-172) translated by C.W. Goodwin in 1852.  It also appears as the Preliminary Invocation of Crowley's 1904 publication of MacGregor Mathers' translation of the Book of the Goetia
 
Crowley later based his Liber Samekh (Theurgia Goetia Summa Congressus Cum Daemone Sub Figura DCCC) on it.

These days i find a self that tends to
the opening of the temple;
clearing the aethyrs;
establishing a balanced field;
with The Star of Force and Fire.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W65MR99Pe-A&t=15s

Read for about 40min;
meditate for 40 min;
arrange some meteorites and some other items around the Stele of revealing;
and wait,
at the boundary and intersection of crossing over into non human dimensions
as well as their ingress.

In 1993 I was opened into the Latihan Kejiwaan of Subud which I feel that my work with Liber Samekh prior to that was a prelude to~

I have only a limited understanding of the practice of Latihan but it seems to me that it's similar in a way to Csikszenthihalyi's idea of Flow, and the intersection of Flow and Will interests me.  I can see a connection between the these.

Ok maybe not to Nether-wood but i'm not the only one; the minions are being magnified.
Terrestrial elements mixed with the entified human and non-physical currents have been pouring fourth, before the sense of times in sunken cities of Kumari Kandam and others, in seeded globule momental junctures outside the depths of space.
From the Tibetan-Tethys-zone with its crystalline rocks deposited in a part of the Indian continental margin in Dolpo to the Bahamian and Caribbean archipelago
carried over from the north winds of the Riphean Mountains through the impassable Sargasso sea and beyond; entities whose mind and body are the same nature and are able to embody wherever their mind goes and display a form for those with a view of mind and body with different natures; have entangled seed vibrations; like HUM in the twelve dependent-related links of samsara and widening the portals to the realizations of the four doors of liberation; like the "Blood Drinker' Heru Ka absorbing the blood of the dead in the ocean of samsaric appearances transfixing.
The half mongol Adept Losang Drakpa had visions of a black Mañjuśrī and received teachings on the void and the nature of appearances in which the positive view ushered in a cycle, an ingress, a current, and a interpretative body of wisdom which may possess a worldling and collapse its world view.
The emanations pervade and may be hidden in images of Master Rakoczi and leap to images of Count of St. Germain or appearances of Master Morya maybe transferred to Maharajah Ranbir Singh or even buried in a plastic image or just plain use an ordinary being in an ordinary way.

but right now i'm having trouble finding a sock without a hole in it

This is true.

According to the current rumour/rumor mill, AC and JP of JackParsonsLab started all this. Then the many minions followed suit ... so that the Earth's protective shield (the etheric web) now resembles a slice of Swiss Cheese with alien (i.e., astral) entities pouring in.

Personally, I do not believe this. It is my belief, based on questionable experiments, that it was Groves and Oppenheimer who opened the first major portal in '45, with their "Gadget."

After a small series of nuclear portal opening, and the end of the 2nd war, "they" made Oppenheimer the head dude at the new Atomic Energy Commission. But then he started criticizing the mil-gov for continued "testing" and for developing more "military" uses. So "they" fired him and kept all the portal-openers for themseves.

There is a moral to this story. Maybe you (or somebody else) can figure it out?

Holy socks? I will need to consult The Inquisitor's Guide to Inquisition before any charges will be filed or filled.

Is this because the void nibbles away at the composition matter of the socks?

i swear the socks had no holes before i got possessed. Then the self that thought it was in control, began sorting the ones with the holes and the ones without; thought it had figured things out and it was taking a long moment but the socks with the holes seem to have sorted themselves out. Phew the warm milk helped.

Well you are ahead of me Tiger!  You are about ready to hit 1904!  By minimum classic Crowley literal Qablahblahblah (as Katrice characterizes it)

The end of the hiding of Hadit; and blessing & worship to the prophet of the lovely Star! = 1903

I dont really know any terms

But since I was in college I like to move the qi top to bottom and then bottom to top.

 

Once I learnt the chakra names I go from top to bottom and then bottom to top again lol

 

At some points I eject nasty energy through my feet. 

I am doing RESH so I go top bottom and then I make the Sun take me to good energy and eject shar qi thru the feet

 

If I am doing sitting qi gong I do the opposite and I move it (since I am grounded) from base to top and let it filter out into my tongue and then try and utilise it . 

 

 

but unfortunately It is a rare time these days. Lately its in bed . lying like Spare.

I guess you could look at it that way, but I am just focussing on the chakras.  Like inputting the energy into each one in turn and flushing out any bad qi either out the top of my head or out my feet.
