Candlemass

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are involved in the study and practice of esoteric knowledge, then don’t forget that tomorrow is Candlemass Day. One of the rituals the Roman Catholic churches will observe on Candlemass is the blessing of candles. It is a good opportunity for you to give that extra charge of energy and mystery to the candles that you will be using for your rituals during the year.

Attend one of tomorrow’s masses and bring some candles with you. Then have them blessed by the priest after the mass. I suggest that you bring enough quantity that would last you for a year till the next Candlemass. You can bring for blessing an extraordinarily big candle that you can use and reuse for your rituals during the months ahead or you can bring for blessing a number of smaller candles, like tea light candles, that are normally good for one ritual only.

White candle is the all purpose candle you can use in any ritual. However, if you want to incorporate color in your candle magic, you may want to bring an assortment of colored candles so that you will have a specially blessed candle that will match the kind of ritual you may want to do in the course of the year. For example, candle magic involving the manifestation of money will normally become more emphatic if you use a green candle. A yellow candle will be more appropriate in rituals involving career, while pink or red candles will be more appropriate for love affairs. If you can secure one, you might want to bring a black candle to keep for those kind of emergencies associated with the need to banish certain things in our life that we do not want to continue bothering us.

Whatever candles you use in your rituals, just take advantage of tomorrow’s special ritual for blessing candles. It happens only once a year. You can, of course, use ordinary candles in your spells and rituals. But having specially blessed candles on Candlemass will give you that sense of extraordinariness you would to create around your magical tools like candles.

Life’s Meaning

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a few quotes from the work of  three authors who have apparently found a
common ground in answering the question: “What is the meaning of life?”

 “Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”

-Joseph Campbell-

“There is not one big cosmic meaning for all; there is only the meaning we each give to our life, an individual meaning, an individual plot, like an individual novel, a book for each person.”

-Anaïs Nin-

“In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in his cosmic loneliness.

And God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see
what We have done.” And God created every living creature that now moveth,
and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man
sat, looked around, and spoke. “What is the purpose of all this?” he
asked politely.

“Everything must have a purpose?” asked God.

“Certainly,” said man.

“Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,” said God.

And He went away.”

-Kurt Vonnegut-

It is not difficult to agree with these perspectives as a matter of empirical fact. If  life had a fixed and constant meaning for everyone, then we would have settled the issue
long ago. But ask anyone what the meaning of life is and you will get as many
answers as there are respondents.

Life’s meaning cannot be arbitrated for us by a dictionary. You cannot find life’s meaning the way you can find what a word’s meaning is by opening a dictionary. Because the meaning is intrinsic to the one who is asking the question. It is in each of us and as such, it is something that is subject  to our own creativity.

Next time you feel compelled to address the issue: What is the meaning of my life? Go inward, take a look at yourself, and ask yourself: Why would I want to go on living?

Your answer to that question will also tell you what the meaning of your life is.

Samhain

Samhain is a time of reflection of what had been and what will be.

On Halloween night, it is said that the separation between the physical and spiritual worlds is thin. It is time to meditate and commune with those who have passed on to the other side.

The Other Side is the future for everyone. There is no exception.

It is time to come to terms with the one phenomenon of life over which we have no control — death.

In today’s fun-filled celebration of the supernatural, may you learn to look beyond the veil and realize that whether we are Here or in the Other Side, we are living in essentially the same world.

When we realize that, then we realize that there is actually no real death.

Happy Halloween sa inyong lahat!

Taking Care of Talismans or Amulets

I am reproducing the following handout from Santo Nino Botanical Center (aka Peter Mystical Book Center) verbatim with no editing.

HOW TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOUR AMULET TO BE MORE EFFECTIVE

The efficacy and power of an amulet depends not only on the magical symbols or power words shown on it, etc. but also on how it is “consecrated” and how it is used.

Granting that you already have the amulet and “consecrated” it according to our instructions on “How to Consecrate” your Talisman, Amulets, etc. The following are the simple instructions to be strictly followed to get the very best out of your amulet or to be more effective.

1.  HOW TO WEAR YOUR AMULET

a. Wear your amulet as a necklace or as a pendant. In this case, make a small hole in one corner of the parchment paper on which the amulet is drawn or printed. Put a golden or silver neck chain through the hole, and wear around your neck under your clothes., in order not to be seen by other.

b. The amulet may be carried, put into a locket or red flannel bag and wear it like a necklace.

c.  Finally, the amulet may be carried or folded in your wallet,purse or in the pocket of your clothes. Always wear or carry your amulet wherever you go. The longer you carry it, the quicker will the expected results come.

2.    BE CONSTANTLY AWARE AT THE PRESENCE OF YOUR PARTICULAR AMULET

Remind yourself always that you have the amulet in your person, and you have a “COMPANION” a force that is quietly, deligently and powerfully working to your advantage. This is necessary to complement the mystical powerof the amulet in order to obtain your desire.

3.     DO NOT ALLOW OTHER PERSONS TO TOUCH YOUR AMULET

a. As much as possible, do not allow other persons to touch or otherwise handle your amulet. Why? Because whether deliberately or inadvertently, other persons might, if they touch or handle your amulet, transmit onto/into it negative psychic energies which could, unless removed, cut down the magical power invested in the amulet.

b. It is even better, in addition, that you do not make other persons see your amulet! Perhaps the best way to prevent your amulet being touched or even seen by other people is to fold it and keep it inside a locket which you then hang around your neck by chain or keep (inside a small envelope bag, if you wish) it inside your wallet, purse, handbag, briefcase, etc.

In cased your amulet is accidentally touche by other, you must consecrate it again.

4.    DO NOT TELL OTHER PEOPLE ABOUT YOUR AMULET

a. You should not tell anyone about your amulet unless you are certain that they share your interest in the occult.

b. The need to keep quiet or silent about your amulet and about  your occult work in general stems mainly from the fact that the majority of people are afraid of the occult and of people who are associated with it — and what people are afraid of, they tend to attack with all their might! If you did tell just anyone about your amulets, or that you practised magic, etc., they would probably not only shun your company and spread false information about you but they might also suspect you of being behind their personal problems. Of course you would be innocent of the misdeeds they suspect you of but how are you going to prove that to them?

c. Let your amulet work for you — quietly and effectively. It is not your duty to convince anyone that amulets do work when consecrated and used properly; you could, in your bid to convince, talk to someone from dawn to dusk, and they might still consider you an ass for believing “such things”, anyway! So why don’t you please let them alone? Let your amulet help you to prosperity and let other people wonder at your success and “luck”!

5.     DO NOT DOUBT THE EFFICACY OF YOUR AMULET

a. If you should, even before you commence to use your magical amulet, get it into the mind that it would not work, well, then you have succeeded in cutting back drastically its magical power! This is a point you will do well to remember: in all  matters spiritual, the degree of one’s faith or belief in the particular spiritual formula being used helps to determine the degree of the person’s success or failure in the use of the formula concerned. It does not matter who or what you are praying to, are asking for help from, or are using: if you strongly disbelieve its ability to work for you, well, it won’t.

b. The uninitiated are, to a large extent, puzzled by magic and other forms of the occult. How and why, they often ask themselves, do a few (usually silly-sounding) words, phrases and sentences, or some funny looking symbols drawn on parchment or embossed on metal and carried around, produce such remarkable results? They often conclude that it is illogical  that such methods could produce the said effects; that the “effects”, should they occur as expected, were the results of pure coincidence!

c. It is quite likely that the person who has had no prior experience with the occult will think this way: the problem is that thoughts like that, when held long and strongly enough, tend to inhibit the effectiveness of the amulet (or other magical spiritual method) being used. The best attitude to adopt, in a situation like that, is one of open-mindedness. Amulets and other magical devices have been around since prehistoric times; they have been used throughout history by kings, queens, nobility in general, as well by common ordinary people. And they are still being used today in all corners of the world! If there was really nothing in them, it is logical to expect that they would have been out of use centuries ago!

WE HOPE FOR YOUR SUCCESS AND PROSPERITY

In posting this handout from the Santo Nino Botanical Center, I wish to give a full account of one Philippine tradition on how to properly handle amulets, talismans, or anting-antings. There have been differing accounts of this in the Forum and their is no way to settle those differences in a conclusive way. By giving at least one complete tradition, you can, if you wish, fully adopt it and erase any uncertainty you may have on how you should be handling your anting-anting.

Earth Changes 2012 to 2080

This is an interesting preview of what might be  in store for us in the future , more specifically,the decades following 2012. I’m quoting from The Sanctus Germanus Prophecies (Vol. 2):

We believe that in the Northern Hemisphere in the dead of winter 2012, temperatures will reach their peak as the Seven Suns momentarily line up and concentrate heat onto our solar system.  Such an injection of energy will provoke even more rapid melting of the vast permafrost areas in the Northern Hemisphere and the continent of Antartica, causing a significant rise in the sea levels, which in turn will gravely impact human society.

The accelerated meltdown will cause major flooding of lowland and coastal areas worldwide resulting in a mass exodus from low-lying regions to higher ground and certain designated Spiritual Regions. Amidst this turmoil, lightbearers will be able to seize this opportunity to create a transitional society that will lay the foundation stones for a New Golden Age. (pages 64 – 65).

If you are intrigued by this prophecy, take a look at the website of the Sanctus Germanus Foundation.

This might also be a good subject to pursue in our forum. I have  created  the forum Prophecies for those who might be interested to pursue the subject matter.

Kambal Tuko

This anting-anting is an interesting companion to Santo Niñong hubad. It is called Kambal Tuko. Tuko is the Tagalog word for the gecko lizard. The gecko lizard lives on trees and is well known for its ability to cling quite firmly onto it. This lizard’s clinging ability has found itself into the Filipinos’ language and culture through the phrase “kapit tuko.” It signifies anyone who will cling on anything at all cost — like a public official, for example, who refuses to step down even if his or her ability to perform successfully all the responsibilities of the office is already in doubt. We say he or she is “kapit tuko” with respect to the position.

The lizard’s legendary clinging ability has also found its way into the realm of anting-antings. The association is obvious. If one has the clinging power of the lizard then he or she acquires the power to stabilize and make permanent a situation — like a romantic relationship or a love affair.

Use this talisman or anting-anting to make sure that your relationship with a man or a woman will last for a long time, if not forever.
