Sharing this because it features my good friend Christa Vee talking to my other good friend Jackie from the Magic Tool Box on the Goetia.
In which I talk to Jacqueline Wilson of Magic Tool Box UK about all things Abramelin. You actually get to see what I look like in real life in this video, so those of a nervous disposition may want to look away now.
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)
* Respect (for others and for the planet)
Recommended for meditation.

New video: in which I record my efforts at making a full-size Goetia floor cloth, a la Lesser Key of Solomon the King.
Got this from one of the GD Yahoo Groups – check out Ciara’s boots:
BUT… the real question is: since when did Cathy over at Azoth Art start making ghetto fabulous footwear as well? 😉
Halloween is fast creeping up on us! In this video resumé I appeal to the world’s television and radio producers, journalists and creators of online content, offering my services as a Media Pundit. I can provide expert opinion for your forthcoming Halloween stories! And I am willing to do so free of charge (in return for publicity for my work as a novelist, that is). Please use the Contact Alex page to send me a private message.
(NB: This is a repost of a video I made last year for last Halloween, so I thought I’d do it again this year!)
There is no innovation in Golden Dawn magick! If there were, the same three or four topics would not get endlessly recycled on GD blogs and fora across the internet, year after year after year…
Just this week, for example, Nick Farrell has resurrected another old chestnut, the question of the reality of the Secret Chiefs. I could shove in my ha’pennorth on the subject… but looking back through my own blog posts I realise I am guilty of joining in the eternal gyres myself. Here for example is a vlog which expresses my views on the subject, back when the topic was being discussed in 2011.
Recently though I have seen this post on Magic of the Ordinary, and I thought I just had to respond to the four hypotheses that Peregrine advances.
I disagree with all four of them – and instead advance a fifth hypothesis of my own.
I have met in my life three or four people who could possibly be “Secret Chiefs.” NONE of them had internet access, nor used emails, nor ever attempted to go online in anyway. They communicate in strange, esoteric ways, such as using snail-mail (or, as it is known in the Third Order, “mail”), talking to people face to face – or, in the case of one potential Secret Chief who is particularly computer illiterate, getting her daughter to handle email communications on her behalf. 😉
This is a strange concept for some people who are addicted to the internet to grasp, but the fact of the matter is that if the Secret Chiefs are for real, they probably would not publicly respond to Nick’s challenge for quite innocent reasons, such as not being on the internet they haven’t read of it. One can get so addicted to being online that one should remember that 93% of the world’s population is not on Facebook, and as far as I’m aware that includes the Secret Chiefs as well.
If however I am mistaken, then I would say that I know which one of Peregrine’s four hypotheses is most likely… unfortunately I am bound by zillions of oaths of secrecy from saying. 😉
Novelist and writer on the occult Alex Sumner gives advice to a certain “ES” holed up in Moscow Airport on how to claim political asylum. In doing so he invokes the goddess Eris to provide a “Discordian” solution. 🙂
In which I review Psychomagic: The Transformative Power of Shamanic Psychotherapy by Alejandro Jodorowsky – and include an account of an uncanny encounter of my own with Psychomagic.
