A temple within my temple. The conditions and protocols of Solomonic Magic within my temple.

My prior blog post laid bare uncomfortable realities of the Solomonic tradition, primarily concerning the virtue and truth behind the secret seal of Solomon. It is true that without the secret seal of Solomon, a magician is lacking covenant with the Almighty and Most High One. Without covenant the seventy-two daemons of the Lemegeton are neither bound by oath, nor under compulsion to obey the summoner. The secret seal of Solomon is not easily made (rightly so), and not having a covenant could discourage preforming magical operations of Solomonic magic, especially from the Lesser Key.

However, be not afraid..for not all is lost.

Through sustained conjurations, and using lesser known exorcisms, a magician (without the secret seal of Solomon) may beguile daemons of the Lemegeton to appear with a good and helpful nature towards the conjurer. In addition daemons like Prince Seere or King Paimon are known for their amicable and friendly attitudes towards magicians. A magician without the secret seal of Solomon is still likely to be successful in both conjuring and making arrangements for the aid of these more pleasant (but no less powerful) daemons.

Also, via my covenant with the Almighty and Most Hone One (my secret seal of Solomon), a magician can find footing within the temple of Solomon that I maintain in my spiritual temple. In this way, a magician of my temple may effectively conjure, consult and make pacts with the seventy-two daemons of the Lemegeton. In order to do this I must feed my secret seal of Solomon (if it was just me I would not need to feed the secret seal any more than the initial blood offering in its making) to replenish it's strength and make payment for the added strain on the spiritual frame of the secret seal of Solomon that is specifically linked to me.

As the magician of my temple grows in strength of word and deed, prayer and purpose, they become ready to make their own covenant and begin operating within a temple of Solomon of their own make. However their is no rush or urgency to do so for as long as my secret seal of Solomon is kept fed it will remain as strong as ever...and it definitely gets fed.

For those of you I have instructed to evoke daemons of the Lemegeton, I have already placed you in the temple of Solomon I have built, and which resides in my personal spiritual temple. Please continue your work with these daemons. For those of you interested in being in my temple, please contact me and we will see what we can make happen.

The empty vessels, heads and hearts of Neo-Hermeticism.

Should you present yourself as an adept of Solomonic Magic, and (for whatever reason) you do not study (in detail) both the Greater and Lesser Keys of Solomon then you CANNOT be an adept of Solomonic Magic. Should you present yourself as an adept of Solomonic Magic, and (for whatever reason) you do not practice (with strict adherence) to the protocols set forth in both the Greater and Lesser Keys of Solomon then you are absolutely NOT an adept of Solomonic Magic.

What are you exactly? That depends on context. Most individuals could be labeled as simply misinformed, but a few would rightly be deemed frauds. It is one thing to say that you are a student of, or even simply a dabbler in, the occult. There is nothing wrong with that. However if you are claiming to be an adeptus of the Solomonic Arts,and speak as an better be on point. Expect to get vetted.

I am an adeptus of Solomonic Magic. I have been INITIATED  into the traditions within the Grimoirum VerumGrand GrimoireBlack Pullet, Sanctum RegnumBlack Raven, Arbatel, and Honorius, as well as the Greater and Lesser Keys of Solomon.

I am not an internet trained occultist. I began practicing Solomonic Magic in 1990 when I was twelve. My spiritual Godfather was regularly consulted by Masonic lodges (and many other magical lodges) in California on ritual/magical regulations and protocols. By the time I was eighteen I had read L.W De Laurence's The Master Key, and The Great Book of Magical Art six or seven times, as well as A.E Waite's Book of Black Magic and of Pacts (If you have not read those those books). I am my 30s now. You can triple the amount of times I've read those aforementioned books, and easily calculate my hours of occult practice into the thousands. 

The fictitious King Solomon (formed from a collaboration of magi) is said to have bound seventy-two daemons into a vessel of brass. Why did King Solomon do this? A myriad of speculated reasons persist, however I think the most honest one involves gathering a slave labor force to build his temple. When Solomon's temple was completed and he was finished with the daemons, King Solomon tossed the brass vessel into a deep lake (other stories say the ocean or a bottomless pit). When the brass vessel was eventually rediscovered and reopened, a strong hot wind escaped, but the vessel was otherwise empty. 

I am concerned fraudulent Solomonic Magic dabblers who are claiming to be adeptus will begin selling brass vessels. I am also concerned that these same frauds will attempt to greatly overstate and misrepresent themselves as magicians, by claiming to possess a brass vessel. This casts further shade on the Solomonic tradition, a tradition already damaged by the lack of legitimate initiations, and plagued by the irresponsible as well as lazy (physically and intellectually) and spineless occult theorists who associate themselves with it. 

Frater Ashen Chassan is one such occult theorist.

Frater Ashen Chassan's over turned vase of Solomon.
On a forum thread he arbitrarily (no relation to the topic of the thread) posted a picture of his brass vessel (an upside down brass vase). An embarrassingly obvious act of A.S.B (attention seeking behavior). I queried if he had ever read the Lesser Key of Solomon or understood Kabbalistic magic. His grand standing responses to my questions proved he did not. In particular his insistence that Kaballistic and Goetic magic are separate. With one fell swoop all and credibility lost...

Frater Ashen Chassan claims Solomonic Magic, a magical system rooted entirely in Jewish mysticism, is not based on Kabbalah...which IS Jewish mysticism. It doesn't get much worse than that. I invitie Frater Ashen Chassan to spend serious alone time, and really examine what he thinks he knows.

In an effort to try and undo the sheer fuckery rampant in both modern Hermeticism and Goetic magic; I will say this:  If you do not understand the Kaballah, and by its virtue Kaballistic magic, you CANNOT understand nor preform Goetic magic. The authors of both the Greater and Lesser Keys did not include a primer on Kabalistic magic, and rightly so. It was (and is) assumed any credible magician of the time (or any time) would already be well versed in the foundation of his (now days also her) practice.

Secret Seal of Solomon
The picture Frater Ashen Chassan posted of his personal brass vessel speaks volumes concerning the depth of his practice; primarily there is a lot lacking, and little to be desired. But how is it I know this? Simple. The secret seal of Solomon, or in this case, the lack thereof. In the picture Frater Ashen Chassan posted of his brass vessel, he has engraved the image of the secret seal of Solomon on the top of the brass vase (which is actually the bottom base). But this  is wrong. The engraving serves only as a symbolic representation and nothing more. It is the equivalent of using a replica human skull for acts of necromancy. A farce and in many respects insulting.

Let us read how the Lesser Key of Solomon says to produce the secret seal of Solomon.

(I recite from memory with some paraphrasing). 

To draw the seal with the correct amount of energy, the Magician must have spent a full month abstaining from all forms of sexual activity and instead devotedly praying to the Highest of the High as well as fasting for purity and atonement. The secret seal of Solomon MUST be drawn on virgin parchment paper with the BLOOD of a black rooster who had not yet fucked a hen.

The seal must ALSO be drawn at midnight on a Tuesday (Mars) or Saturday (Saturn) on a night when the Moon is increasing in light (New to Full) and in the sign of Virgo.

Once drawn the secret seal of Solomon is to be perfumed by an incense made of alum, raisins dried in the sun (NOT STORE BOUGHT), dates, cedar, and lignum aloes.

Taking another look at Frater Ashen Chassan's seal I am able to pick out the steps he omitted...all of them.

In addition an adeptus of  Solomonic Magic,  I am a Palero or priest of Palo Mayombe, also called an Ngangalero. I know how to make spirit pots, fetishes and vessels. When an nganga (pot or vessel) or nkisi (fetish) I am building requires hippo tooth, I get fucking hippo tooth. Not a dog tooth, or a camel tooth, or deer tooth. No. I get a hippo's tooth. It is the same with animal sacrifice do feed an nganga, nkisi as well as to draw a seal, sigil or write a pact; I make the sacrifice by killing a living animal, I do NOT buy a raw steak and wring the cold lifeless blood out of it or let frozen chicken thaw over the mpaka or nkisi (seriously... I know some despicable Paleros who do this).

I have a REAL brass vessel because I made it the REAL way.

I spent a month in abstinence, prayer, and fasting. I procured a young black rooster, and housed it to ensure it's own sexual purity. I sacrificed the rooster of a Tuesday midnight during a waxing moon in Virgo. I drew the secret seal of Solomon in the blood of the rooster on virgin parchment and finally I perfumed the seal with alum, raisins dried in the sun (NOT STORE BOUGHT), dates, cedar, and lignum aloes. This process took timing, planning, and determination.

Making the secret seal of Solomon is a pact, or covenant with God the Almighty and Most High. The secret seal of Solomon is the doorway that the license (which gives the authority) to work the Solomonic tradition is delivered. Such a covenant can only be made in blood. Without the secret seal of Solomon, there is NO brass vessel, and there is NO dependable conjurations.

But, Daddy Croc, do I really need to make animal sacrifice, learn Kabalistic magic, and adhere to grimoric protocol? Yes. Yes you must. Why do you, or anyone, get a free pass? Why did the magicians of yesteryear have to follow these protocols but modern magicians do not? How can modern occultists expect the same results granted by the efforts of the magicians of yesteryear when they half ass (at best) their occult workings?

Times have changed? Really? What exactly has changed? The answer is nothing. It is still the stone age... we just have cars now and more self-entitled lazy elitist crybabies who deserve a heavy bone club to the head. All the same rules still apply whether it be the jungle or the concrete jungle, whether it be ancient Rome or Modern Rome (American and the UK)...its still ideologically Rome.

You say you are against killing animals and thereby excused from preforming sacrifice? Good chance you still eat meat. So no, you are not against killing of animals as you are willing to benefit from the death of an animal, just so long as someone else does the dirty work. You are a vegetarian or vegan? Then you simply cannot ever vibrationally align with the sub-lunar DAEMONS of the Lemegeton. You however are exceptionally well suited to the Arbatel De Magia Veterum.

To know, to will and to dare.

This axiom of Ceremonial Magic should act as your guiding light and embolden your heart. Nothing is gained in the empty, the hollow or symbolic, as the only actions which could result will be empty, hollow, or symbolic in return.  Do you want a car, a job, victory over your enemies, and to triumph over adversary.. or empty symbolic gestures of a car, a job, victory and triumph?  "As above, so below"? Ring a bell???

When I endeavored to summon Lucifuge Rocofale of the Grand Grimoire I fucking followed protocol and at 3:33 am, alone, covered in the blood of a goat and deep within the San Bernadino  mountains of California... Lucifuge Rocofale appeared. What followed was horrific, my mettle was thoroughly tested, but now I know for certain there is no man or spirit who I can not force to bow before me (excluding deity level entities). Should you "Know, Will and Dare" as well as follow the protocols of the Grand Grimoire then maybe you too could say the same. So it goes for the brass vessel as well.

For fuck's sake E.A. God help you if that is another banana. 
Do not be like E.A Koetting and "summon" Lucifuge Rocofale (there was no Lucifuge DID NOT show) in your mom's back yard, and offer him a piece of fruit (a banana). Sadly, but not surprisingly, this is EXACTLY what happened. I trust the source I heard it from. Neither be like Frater Ashen Chassan, turning brass vases upside and calling them brass vessels of Solomon.

If you are going to be an adeptus, you need to know, will and dare as an adeptus does. In the occult it is works not grace that claim your title.

Christians think about God, but Magicians know God.

Anima Sola... it is best you don't...but since you are going too anyway...

Anima Sola
La Santisima Muerte, Saint Cyprian, La Madama, Black Hawk, Saint Expedite, and now introducing the newest flavor of the month for the cult of wanna-be sorcerers (CWS)...Anima Sola.  Maybe, just maybe, Anima Sola will give CWS what sever lack of dedication, zero practice and bewildering apprehension towards authentic initiation has thus far kept out of their reach...authority and credibility. And if not (a definite not) rest assured their will be (there WILL be) a new saint or spirit's mystery to exploit and tarnish.

Just like La Madama, Anima Sola comprises a vast legion of spirits. There is not an Anima Sola but an untold mass of millions and millions of dead who are Anima Solas. As stated Anima Sola are the spirits of earthbound (but more earthbound than earthbound) dead who are, because of a myriad of reasons, alone or lost and or trapped in the earth plane. Anima Sola suffer significant torrents, as such they are distressed and desperate...which means they are very dangerous.

Similar to how a drowning man can inadvertently pull his would be rescuers under alongside with him, Anima Solas can very easily become disastrous to those trying to offer them "light and progress", no matter what the intention is behind the act of kindness. Let that be a lesson to those sadly afflicted with the idiocy of the new-age... love and light does NOT inherently protect you from anything...never has and never will.

So what is the reason for attracting the attention of the Anima Solas?

This is largely answered by both your spiritual tradition and intentions.

From the perspective of Espiritismo-Spiritism (Scientific-Kardecian, Criollo and even Umbanda, Maria Lionza and to some degree Palo and Kimbanda) it is the oath and duty of priest or priestess to offer light and progress to the dead. It is the will of God, that all "his" children/creations eventually attain their highest potential. It is rewarding spiritual work as many times the dead you elevate offer help in return and will ask higher level spirits to also give you their blessing. In the Espiritismo-Spiritism Maria LIonza, and Umbanda traditions this progression is offered freely with no expectation of help in return (however its nice when the kindness is paid back and it usually is). In traditions like Palo Mayombe and Kimbanda pacts and bargains can be struck to ensure that aid is secured by the dead the Tata or Yaya (priest or priestess) offers light and progress too.

The initiated priest or priestess of those aforementioned traditions have been given the license and authority by very powerful high level spirits to safely work with the dead. But, even with that same license and authority, we priests and priestess still handle the Anima Solas with special gloves. If earthbound dead are seen as "hot" then Anima Solas are typically "lava hot". Individuals who are not initiated drawing the attention of the Anima Sola is generally egregiously stupid. All anyone needs to do is research the deteriorating mental health, and increase of domestic abuse and murder/suicides among so-called paranormal researchers...and  they are not dealing with Anima Solas... but earthbound dead.

From a black magic perspective, if the earthbound dead are known to work quickly (because of their close proximity to the material plane) then the Anima Sola work just that much faster. Also... where earthbound dead can often want specific things in return for their aid, and may or may not be willing to do the work you want it to preform (often for moral reasons) the Anima Sola are extremely desperate and willing work for just candle light and water. Also the desperation of the Anima Sola means they are willing to do anything to get that light and water. Imagine a man being slowly broken on a rack for hours upon hours. The pain caused by having his body pulled apart is also pulling apart his sanity. He can become so distressed and desperate that he would be willing to do or say anything to make the torture stop.

Anima Sola in this way are used as the "intranquil spirits" to dominate, control and destroy.

Light and water act as a reprieve to an Anima Sola's torment, and thus the Anima Sola becomes very dependent on them. A priest/ess or sorcerer using the Anima Sola for evil or questionable purposes is not elevating the Anima Sola out of their torment, only staving it off for a time, and keeping the Anima Sola in it's "hell" because in order to get the light and water it must do evil or at the very least questionable things. The sorcerer and the enslaved Anima Sola enter into a strange relationship. The Anima Sola wants the light and water that the sorcerer offers, but is kept imprisoned in its own hell by the acts it must do it order to get the light and water. The sorcerer, sooner than latter, becomes the target of the Anima Sola, and because Anima Sola is legion, he or she (unless extremely both powerful and knowledgeable) is now oppressed by many exceedingly angry vengeful dead to give them light and water, and now whatever else they want (generally vices like cigars, alcohol, drugs and porn...but also blood) with no aid in return, simply to alleviate the oppression...for a time.

A lay person, the internet trained spiritualist, the new-ager, is many, many more times than not, simply unable to handle the aggressive and desperate nature of the Anima Sola. These well meaning but misguided people, whether they are trying to elevate the dead or exploit them, will be quickly overrun and turned into a slave of the Anima Sola.

Because the Anima Sola will soon (assuming they are not already... I avoid YouTube like a plague of stupidity that is also somehow infected with AIDS... so I would not know) be the topic of numerous YouTube videos made by morons... I will detail the ONLY safe way to help the Anima Sola and "maybe", hopefully receive their grace and blessing for your good works.

First NO images! NONE. There is an iconic lithograph of a woman, often in chains, and surrounded by flames. This image is used by initiated priests and priestess, of which many of you are probably not, and this lithograph becomes a focal point... you are not ready to have this type pf energy "pool" and condense in your working/living space.

You are to offer the Anima Sola these three things and these three things ONLY:

1. A glass of COLD water.
2. A single WHITE candle.
3. Prayer.

"Hear mortal men, the cries of the imprisoned soul, alone and abandoned in a dark prison. Anima Sola, soul of peace and war. Soul of sea and of land. I desire that all that I have lost be returned.
Anima Sola, you who are alone and abandoned, I accompany you in your grief.
I take pity upon you.For I know of the grief and suffering you must endure within your harsh and long imprisonment. I offer you this prayer and glass of water because I desire to lessen your pain and quench your thirst. Sad Soul, Lonely Soul, no one calls you, But I call you. No one looks for you, but I seek you out. 
No one loves you, but I adore you. No one remembers you, but I keep you in my heart. I offer you this lit candle so that you may find your way into the light. In this moment I offer to you my meritorious labour, and all that I have suffered, suffer and will suffer in this life, even though it can never compare to yours. I humbly pray that you finish paying for your mortal sins of the flesh so that you may find the grace of God, and be lifted from your imprisonment, With your grace you shall be my benefactor."

You will do this only ONE time a week. You will make NO promises and you will NOT ask for anything specific.

Place a glass of COLD water on the ground or on a table with NO other religious symbols other than maybe a cross (One of the OLDEST religious symbols and not owned by any single religion... it is a symbol for among the highest understanding of "God", or the Highest of the High).

Place a WHITE candle next to the glass of water.

1. Make the sign of the Kabbalistic cross over your body (forehead, navel, right shoulder, and left shoulder).

2. Light the WHITE candle (which should not be a seven day candle but a 3-6 hour candle).

3. Offer the following prayer.

Now be done for the rest of the week. DO NOT sit in front of the candle and water and meditate on the Anima Sola. DO NOT sit and talk to the Anima Sola, DO NOT tell them your troubles or make specific requests of them. You are offering this act as an act of good will. You are saying you want what you have lost to be returned to you and that they should be your benefactor, but that is it. It will be up to the Anima Sola to decide to help you, and/or you will receive the blessing of higher level beings for giving the Anima Sola elevation.

If after a FULL year of honoring the Anima Sola is this EXACT way and you want to do more... you may contact me and we will discuss what more you can safely do in order to deepen your practice.
