This is an experimental video project. The soundtrack is an “isochronic tone” intended to aid “Manifestation” (cosmic ordering, creative visualisation, “the Secret” etc). The images are selected to represent positive goals which will benefit both the individual and the whole planet, e.g.

* Success (sporting endeavour)
* Abundance
* Love
* Peace
* Respect (for others and for the planet)

Cosmic Ordering Calendar 2018

Some eight years ago I first came up with the idea of devising one’s own Cosmic Ordering Calendar. As a reaction against some of the cynical and trashy novelty calendars that were then doing the rounds, I thought, why not create one’s own calendar to do something noble like manifest one’s goals and aspirations?

Example of a blank photo calendar

Needless to say, I am currently using the break between Christmas and New Year’s Eve to prepare my Calendar for 2018. I’ve found that a great deal of the work can be done for you by getting photo calendars, which are available from major stationers: their intent was for you to put twelve cute pictures of your family on it and send it to your relatives. However, the Cosmic Orderer can subvert this and put twelve pictures of what one wants to manifest in the forthcoming year.

Cosmic Ordering Calendar 2011

Currently I am working on my 2011 Cosmic Ordering Calendar – see here for my original post about the subject last year.

As regards this year’s it seems that the various things that have been occurring have done so but in the wrong order!

An Open Letter to Lady Gaga, on seeing that she has held a Seance.


Lady Gaga


Dear Lady Gaga,

We have not corresponded before but hopefully in the future you will look back upon this moment as the beginning of a long and fruitful professional relationship.

Have you ever imagined the sight of a bill for ghostbusting services which has the letters F O C* printed on it and felt like “Oh my God! Why didn’t I hire this wonderful man before now?” For this is the service which I, Alex Sumner, Prophet of the Age of Capricorn, Ascended Master, and all-round expert on all things Occult can provide! In fact I will start right now by proffering some advice on seeing that you have recently held a Seance whilst on tour in Ireland.

Firstly, the good news. The spirit you refer to as Ryan is unlikely to be the soul of an actual dead person in torment upon this Earthly plane. Generally speaking, the souls of dead people only hang around the material plane up to few days after their physical passing, whilst the remaining ties which bind them here are themselves dissolving. Thereupon they depart for the after-life in the usual manner.

Moreover, mediums do not generally contact dead people even though they purport to do so, because the person’s soul has long since ceased to be in a position to provide useful information. If they are collecting accurate information about a person’s life it is likely that they are reading it off the Akashic Records. NB: don’t expect a spirit to provide more information than it would have known whilst alive, and beware of any supposed spirit which purports to do so. There is a saying in the Occult: “Just because you are dead does not make you more intelligent.” This sounds so obvious but often people who go to consult mediums tend to forget it.

The bad news however is that it may very well be that Ryan is a genuine “thing” of some description. It might be some sort of negative entity or elemental which you have attracted to yourself because of emotional trouble. Like a Bad Romance for example! (Heh, see what I did there?) This is not the end of the world however as there are various ways to get rid of it, e.g. the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, or in extreme cases some of the techniques which I describe in my blog-posts about Vampires (see here and here). Furthermore, one can reinforce this by actively attracting positive and beneficial influences (see, e.g. here).

There is a remote, and I stress the word remote possibility that it is a real entity sent by someone nasty: however this is unlikely to be the case. The vast majority of people complaining about being psychically attacked by someone else are in fact nothing of the sort – if anything they are just severe cases of people attracting bad influences on themselves, in the manner I describe above. In any event, remedies such as the LBRP etc should be more than enough to protect you.

By now you should be reading these lines and becoming more and more fascinated with the idea of hiring the services which only I can provide. You will be pleased to know that you can contact me further to discuss hiring me. Hope the tour goes well,



*NB: I may have said F O C but this applies only to my ghost-busting efforts. I still charge expenses!

The Magical Basis for the Law of Attraction

The Secret. Cosmic Ordering. Law of Attraction. Creative Visualisation. The Power. Etc ect tec. Books like these and similar are available from the Mind Body Spirit section of every book store across the globe (I wait until they are available through my local library though, if I read them at all). The more I do read of them, however, the more I am convinced that they are all saying the same thing but expressing it in different words. Equally, however, when I read them, I almost never get a satisfactory explanation as to why they should work if at all.

Well: I have decided for the benefit of poor benighted mankind to give away the real Secret behind The Secret, as it were, for free, by revealing how the modern fancy for the so-called “Law of Attraction” was anticipated by the occult-revival of the late 19th century – and in doing so I hope to indicate a practical method which you, my readers, can put to work yourselves.

The key to it all is in Theosophy.

I have been an aficionado of  the Golden Dawn for an extremely long time. The more I look into it the more I am convinced that the Theosophy of H P Blavatsky is a far greater influence  on it than is generally accepted. According to certain researches I have been doing, I believe that both Mathers and Westcott intended the teachings of the higher grades – which have never been published – to be “westernised” versions of the more recondite teachings of Theosophy. Moreover: at the time the Golden Dawn was founded, just about everyone into the occult scene of the late 19th century was into Theosophy anyway, so the founders of the GD fully intended  the teachings of the order to be interpreted in the light of that movement. It is as if the Golden Dawn provided the How; but Theosophy provided the What.

So to cut a long story short, there I was researching the origin of the concept of Artificial Elementals, and I decided to find out what the various Theosophical sources had to say about the subject.

I had read various people describe extremely convoluted methods of creating Artificial Elementals for magical purposes – more shame them! – but the reality of the subject is actually quite simple:

A Thought, which is contemplated with enough effort, takes on a life of its own on the Astral plane.

That is, essentially, the whole secret of Artificial Elementals in one sentence! The thoughts we have day to day, moment to moment, each create some presence on the astral plane: but because we do not devote much effort to considering them, they soon fade away into nothingness. However: a Thought which is considered often, for long periods at a time, which is invested with much emotional significance and so forth persists on the Astral Plane to the extent that it can attract energy which is sympathetic to it to feed it and prolong its existence. These Thought-Entities (“thought-forms”) can even become so animated that they instinctively perform acts which are consonant with their nature, which have an effect on the physical plane.

The classic example of this is that of a mother who loves her children so much, that quite unconsciously her love for her children creates “guardian angels” for them.

So therefore, the wise magician could attract good fortune unto him or herself, by filling  the mind with strong feelings of positivity, concentrating on this hard and repeating it often. This positivity would then form a kind of Artificial Elemental which coalesces into a helper-spirit which naturally aids the magician.

Similarly, one can wish good fortune unto another by e.g. visualising the subject and concentrating on good feelings towards them.

This is an infinitely flexible method of working: it could be used for Health (by visualising the subject being happy and healthy), or Wealth, Success or something more specific, by altering the precise nature of the visualisation that one concentrates upon.

However: there is a corollary to all this. Just as good thoughts create Artificial Elementals of a benevolent nature, so do bad thoughts create ones of a malevolent or unpleasant nature. Hence, it is not just enough to concentrate on positive thoughts and emotions, one must free ones mind from all negative ones as well. Dwelling on bad, unproductive thoughts lock you into a downward spiral. Moreover, if you were attempting to think your way to success, but retained any small idea that you did not deserve it, or doubt that it would occur, this would serve to negate or lessen the good work that you do.

This is also the best reason for avoiding attempting malevolent or evil magick, because it invariably involves attracting bad influences around you, even if you purport to try and then direct them to someone else.

So I hope you now see how this fits in with the “Law of Attraction” – basically, the various forms which it takes are all methods of creating Artificial Elementals which influence others – whether you know it or not – into bringing the thing thought about to you. Theosophy predicted it over a hundred years ago – but still there seem to be new books coming out about it all the time, none of which acknowledge the source.

Incidentally: I have come across a number of people who claim to be “white magicians” who refuse to cast spells for other people, claiming that even something well-intentioned is somehow black magick. This seems to me utter nonsense – and dangerously hypocritical as well. As far as I am concerned, there is no moral difference between shaking someone’s hand and saying “I Wish You Well,” and casting a spell to wish them well: because if you shake someone’s hand and mean it, you are casting a spell! A little spell, maybe, but still with an effect on the astral plane nonetheless. NB: these people of whom I complain did actually shake my hand supposedly heartily, so you may appreciate why I have a suspicion of insincerity about them.

Practical Exercise – for attracting general Good Fortune.

As promised I will end with describing a simple little exercise which you can put into practice immediately. Note carefully, however, what I say about dwelling on negativity. If you do not banish – e.g. with the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram – every negative influence from your life, you will find that the exercise is not likely to work.

The exercise is this:

Every day, spend about 5 to 10 minutes in meditation, meditating in the following manner. Visualise that you are outside your body looking at yourself. As you contemplate yourself, mentally repeat the phrase “I LOVE YOU” like a mantra. As you do so, allow yourself to feel pure, unselfish Love filling you and projecting out towards this visualised image of yourself.

In the short term you will experience an immediate effect of feeling good about yourself. In the long term, by repeating this exercise every day, you will begin to notice that you are attracting good fortune into your life (i.e. because you are forming a benevolent Artificial Elemental on the astral plane).

Creative Visualisation – Lessons from a Christian Mystic

Here are two methods creative visualisation which you can use to alter your life for the better. These are basic techniques which ideally should be carried out every day. You may notice a certain similarity to techniques recommended by certain occult or new-age / theosophical sources suggesting that they are far eastern in origin, but in fact they are nothing of the sort: they were actually first mentioned by the fifteenth century mystic Saint Thomas à Kempis. Not only is this Saint respected in exoteric Christian circles, he is also endorsed in Rosicrucian ones as well, e.g. Theophilus Schweighardt.

Thomas à Kempis wrote:

If you cannot recollect yourself continuously, do so once a day at least, in the morning or in the evening. In the morning make a resolution and in the evening examine yourself on what you have said this day, what you have done and thought, for in these things perhaps you have often offended God and those about you.

Imitation of Christ, book 1, chapter 19, “The Practices of a Good Religious.”

Kempis has an unfortunate pre-occupation with sin and offending God, and comes across as negative. He could of course have focussed on the positive instead – by recollecting oneself at the end of the day one might discern that you have pleased God and those about you – not for the sake of indulging in piety, but for that of rejoicing in the goodness of the Universe.

Yet in this short quote Kempis has hit upon the basis for a workable system of daily creative visualisation. I have therefore formulated the following practices of which anyone of any faith (or lack thereof) may make use.

Morning: “Prospective Visualisation”

First thing in the morning on waking up, visualise how your day is going to proceed whilst mentally repeating an appropriate affirmation or resolution. You should visualise yourself being successful at everything you know is going to happen, i.e. you see yourself being happy, being popular, achieving what you want to achieve, etc. You can even visualise things coming to you from sources outside your conscious control – i.e. because your mind is connected to the Universe in ways which you only unconsciously appreciate. Never assume that anything is completely impossible, even if it seems unreasonable, because you would then be creating limiting self-beliefs.

Evening: “Retrospective Visualisation”

This is almost identical to an exercise which I recommend in connection with Lucid Dreaming. In the evening, last thing before going to bed, meditate by visualising the events of the day, remembering them backwards. When you discern something going right for you, contemplate a feeling of gratitude to whoever caused it, and to the universe in general. If you realise something went wrong, you should also express gratitude for being able to discern your mistake, and resolve that you will learn from your experience and do better in the future.


Getting into the habit of using creative visualisation regularly everyday increases the probability that one day you will be pleasantly surprised to find events happening as you had intended them that morning. This can include apparently remarkable occurrences like people getting in contact with you, offering you opportunities, which you did not cause to happen. In fact you did cause them, though not in a way that skeptics might appreciate.

Retrospective visualisation helps to improve the memory – some sources allege that it can ultimately help one recall ones past lives. I also find that by doing this immediately before going to sleep, ones dreams are less likely to be plagued by memories of the day just gone, and instead will be filled with images from the deeper levels of the unconscious.

Creative Visualisation in the internet age

In what is quite clearly a shameless attempt to get pictures of scantily clad women into the Daily Telegraph, this august publication has published a review of weird and whacky 2010 calendars. But one of far the most interesting ones was one which did not resort to such cheap thrills at all, but was an attempt at humour: the 2010 Credit Crunch Calendar. This alliteratively-titled work features pictures of Britons (not) coping with the current recession, e.g. pictures of boarded-up branches of Woolworths, people going on staycations in Birmingham, etc. The idea being that it is meant to show that Britons can laugh in the face of adversity.

I say interesting, because it suddenly struck me that this was in fact a good example of how not to create a 2010 Calendar. I shall explain.

Several years ago I read The Cosmic Ordering Service by Barbel Mohr. It consisted of one page of sound, practical advice. Unfortunately the book itself was 112 pages long. Nevertheless, not to be completely underwhelmed by this publication, I have myself tried cosmic ordering in the past, based on the little amount of advice there is in the original book and have found some success with it. My attempts consist of – every January 1st – instead of making New Year’s Resolutions, I cosmically order what I want to achieve in the year ahead. Which brings me back to the subject of Calendars.

There is a common practice nowadays for people to create their own Calendars to give to others as Christmas presents: for example, a Calendar consisting of a set of family photographs to give to relatives. More to the point, there are an increasing number of resources availabe which are making it easier for people to do so, and also easier for them to make better quality items. For example: lulu.com. So here is my idea: instead of creating a calendar to give to your friends and relations as presents, why not create your own Cosmic-Ordering calendar for yourself?

Write out a list of twelve things you want to achieve in 2010 – one for each month – and then find or create a picture which visually represents each of your objectives. Do this now – do not wait for January 1st 2010, because by then it will be too late. Once you have assembled your list of 12 objectives and corresponding pictures, head on over to some site like lulu or if you are feeling adventurous and have access to a good quality printer and desktop publishing software, have a go yourself. Whichever way you decide, it should be of quality sufficient enough to impress you.

Once it is printed out and ready, try to spend some quality time next New Year’s Day contemplating gratitude to the Universe generally and its inhabitants in particular for all good fortune and blessings which have come to you in the past. Then, once you are in the mood, review each of the twelve objectives you are setting yourself, visualising the corresponding picture and mentally describing in words what it is you want to happen – and when you want it to happen by. You must be utterly convinced – at both a Conscious and Unconscious level – that you deserve all the success for which you are visualising / cosmically ordering – otherwise this exercise will not work. You can thenceforth use the calendar normally, displaying it somewhere where you will see it often.

The great thing about creating your own calendar in this way is that you can tailor it to your own personal aspirations. If you tried to make do with a commercially produced one, you would have to put up with affirmations which are only very general in character – which would thus lessen its importance for you.

This is why I thought the so-called 2010 Credit Crunch Calendar was such a bad idea. Instead of showing a load of pictures of Britain in recession, how much better it would have been to have twelve pictures of how we would like Britain to become in the forthcoming year – because maybe then we can all make it happen.
