What Happened to Last Night’s Storm?

What happened to last night’s storm?

Where is the lightning and the rain?

Where, the furious stentor,

and the rumbling of heaven?

What happened to the pleasures of youth,

Where did the touch of your fingers go?

Where, the ecstatic sigh,

and the shirtless defiance against the past?

Whatever happened while I drifted away

into the limitless hug of death?

Now, is only a clean world,

bright and fresh,

sprinkled with songs of birds

and the smells of spring,

of soil,

of dew.

Now, only the aftermath,

a world renewed and the ample breath

holds my soul

after our light-storm took me into the night.

Why I Lay This Soul to Be Torn Apart

I have seen the dunes of time, rolling with the shifting sands of the endless desert between the dream of life and the wake world of the House Absolute.

Who can cross this unforgiven vastness?

Who survives the ancient whirlwind that tears apart gods and worlds?

Who stands whole before the terrible stentor of The Heart Of The Sky, whose voice creates and destroys the infinite abode?

Who will cross this desert, whose ever shifting dunes are formed out of the cold breath of the eternal void upon the sand of time where every grain is the unique divine point of view of every traveller, of every dreamer of the House Absolute who ever entered this desert void?

And why is it, beloved of my soul, that I would lay that very soul to be torn apart, to add one insignificant grain to the infinite sand? It is so that you too may come to find your completion, your satiety in the constant embrace of the beloved, and that you may also know the glory in plenitude as I have.

The Witches Sabbath is available for preorder on Kindle

The Witches Sabbath, the second book of the Spiritual Technologies series is available for preorder on Kindle.

The Witches’ Sabbath is an act of freedom, and a call to awakening to all spiritual warriors.

This is the Tantra of the New World. It adds to the existing technologies of the East and West the shape-shifting dreaming technologies of the Nagual.

The shamanism of the people of the Nahuas (the Toltec enlightened past of this American continent) has awakened, and it comes as a catalyst that will fuse the Eastern and Western traditions into a new Dharma, one that liberates not only men and not only women, but our true essence as beings who exist beyond bodies, beyond gender, beyond the programs of our past.

This is the tantra of the gender fluid, the religious experience of the variety of human expression.

This is the sexual alchemy of the queer, the transgender, the gender fluid, the asexual, the female, the male, the neutral, and anyone who is a divine star acting through the veil of human existence.

Preorder your Kindle copy here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VNTLQDQ/

The Kindle book will be available on August 28 of this year. You can preorder it now, and it will be delivered to your device on the day or release. I will let you know when the paperback copy is released.

Triad Experiment #3

The participants of the Astral Mastery Workshop were sitting in a circle. This was the first experiential moment of the weekend, where each participant is guided into becoming aware of their etheric bodies and instructed on how to detach it from the physical so that it may serve as a vehicle to travel on this earth at will. As any practiced voyager knows, one of the main barriers at this stage is the psychological barrier that stops you from transferring your consciousness from the physical to the etheric. I have deviced many effective methods to bypass this internal objection. This day, I put one to the test, and it involved E.J. Gold’s Triad.

I opened a portal in the center of the room, and activated a second artifact: a piece derived from the Philosopher’s Stone activated as a magnetic center, attuned to emanate a close range magnetic field. It was just enough to excert a very subtle pull around it without becoming overwhelming. I placed the stone next to the portal and every participant was able to feel the pull and to allow the etheric body to follow the pull out of the bounds of the physical body. With this newfound freedom, the workshop took off.

The next day, the voyagers had already become intimately familiar with the feel and movements of their etheric bodies, and had no trouble moving out at will and without help. Now, the portal opened with the help of the Triad could be used by the voyagers to move through and into higher planes, to safe designated areas to explore and become acquainted with these new environments and their developing bodies of light. Having acquired these skills, we could now proceed to open another portal which each voyager could use to move and come back each in accordance to their own work need, while at the same time allowing me to keep track and map their whereabouts, maintaining communication throughout.

Each one reported a wonderful and easy deployment, and clearly maintained awareness and volition throughout their journeys, successfully bringing back knowledge, maps, and magical tools from their sojourn in order to apply to their Work.

The use of the Triad to open portals is a very natural and useful technology, but the real art and beauty of this instrument shines when you apply it in combination with other magical and shamanic tools, and when you activate inner abilities that work synergistically to aide you in your work.

In this experiment, I used the Stone, the Triad, a Staff, and a meteorite charged with the Aka Dua as a continuous Healing Beacon. With these, along with the activation of skills that would be useless to name here, I was able to provide a safe space, guiding instruments, and the experience necessary for each voyagers to learn the art and science of astral projection from beginning to end–easily, naturally, and effortlessly.

Triad Experiment #2

The second time E.J. Gold’s Triad was used was when I put together a small party to rescue a friend and relative who had been tortured and killed in Central America, and had subsequently been stuck in a bad place in the underworld.

My brother and I scried his location and situation. He had been killed by a gang in El Salvador, and buried alive next to a river by the border with Honduras. My brother and I put together a band of warriors and set up a rescue.

We gathered our tools and entered the bardos, headed to the underworld and travelled down to the place where he was. As we got closer, the atmosphere was of course getting heavier and heavier, and replete with the ambushes and pitfalls typical of the hell dimension.

At the right moment, I used the Triad to open a portal to the higher dimensions, and once rescued, our cousin could safely pass through with us, facilitating a quick exit and restoring his voyager’s memory. There was a sublime pause as he stopped to thank us and his gratitude touched everyone’s hearts.

Mission fulfilled. Liberation was attained by a tortured soul. The gate was closed and the Triad put away.

Triad Experiment #1

I received this Triad from my good friend E.J. Gold in 2015. When he told me he was sending it he said simply: “You’re a shaman. You’ll know what to do with it.”

I opened the package with great delight; E.J. never ceases to amaze me with the useful technologies he tirelessly provides. This time, I was not to be disappointed. Far from it. As soon as I opened it I could tell I was holding a sacred artifact. I saw in the center of the triangle a shimmering membrane, and with just the focus of attention effortlessly available to me in my Santo Sanctorum, my temple, I immediately noticed a strong and vibrant circle––or rather, a sphere––all around me protecting and sealing the temple along the lines of the edge of the protective circle I had earlier established. I noted this effect, and safely put the Triad away inside my altar for later experimentation.

Within a week, I proceeded to the first experiment. With two friends, I used the Triad as a focus amplifier to open a portal. Any reader with good knowledge of practical magick can deduce the function of a triangle. A portal immediately opened up behind us, and while my two capable assistants guarded the circle, I went through the portal and found myself traveling to different parts of the past of this incarnation.

I’ve been here before. This is the retorno, the ability to go back and forth in time at any point in time during the life of the body, to relieve and examine any moment of the life time. The portal gave me immediate access and propelled me to the different points I wished to visit. It boosted the effect, making it immediate, fast as the speed of intent, and quite tangible. I relieved key points of my life.

I went through my lifetime about six times all together, at times changing a few things but mostly coming back to this time line where I am doing this work. I ended up not so much changing anything, but polishing some rough edges of my experience and planting a few habits early one, a couple of shocks so I could remember at other key times.

Eventually, after many years of exploration and work on the life stream, I came back to my assistants and closed the gate. We went outside to assess the effects of the voyage, notated the results and again put the Triad away.

This was the first experiment. Tomorrow, I will share with you the second experiment.

What Is the Etheric Double?

A reader, Rohit Agarwal, asks:

Going through golden flower book , is just simply amazing experience.

I have a question , when koyote ji , says that in etheric double , one can go anywhere on this planet. Does he says in different sense or literally it means one can roam around the entire planet just as going on world tour spending hundreds and thousands of dollars.

Asia , America , europe , all of world is it accessible same way as in organic body and all the experiences one can have at these places in organic body , one gets in etheric double. Or is there some differences in experiences of organic body travels and etheric travels. Is something of organic world experience missed in etheric travels or everything of organic is included plus more.

Please explain. It will help greatly.

Thanks

Asia, America, Atlanta, the bottom of the ocean, my brother’s prison cell, falling with the rain, bouncing with dessert sand in a gust of wind, the edge of the thermosphere…

Koyote’s intensives (Diaphanous Shell, Bhakti the Future, Meditation, Aka Dua, The Dreaming, etc.) all contain the experience of such feats and tasks as he writes and talks about. While the books contain the recipe and the instructions, his personal training include the practical, tangible experience.

There are differences, some as Mary F Scott points out, and then some! The etheric body may come to be known as having its own intelligence. The process taught by Koyote of building an etheric body out of the substances already being produced by the organic body, mixing them with the genius of magick and the ancient teachings, and then training and learning how to use it well enough to transfer a piece of your consciousness into it, turning it on, and have it produce other substances—the ones required to build an astral body—all has to do with a very organic-like process of growing and evolving—all very much within the limits of nature as defined by the shaman and the alchemical magician.

The communication between the etheric body with the conscious, cognitive mind takes learning the language, training, adjusting. It is much more like Rose says, personal. No one can tell you what heat is communicated as to you, if your mind translates it as “hot” or “danger”. The communication between etheric body and organic body is instant and immediate, on the other hand. The body will seek to nurture it and protect it, and objective communication is possible. For example, heat is communicated by the etheric body to the physical body immediately; and, a party of voyagers, such as is always the case in Koyote’s intensives, encountering heat in the Dreaming or etheric waters will all tend to communicate the encounter—some as heat, some as color, some as a dangerous presence, etc.

The physical body is not usually there in all its glorious presence when voyaging in the etheric plane; it plays its own role, though, definitely, and must be trained to handle the voyage. With excellence, as Koyote teaches, the physical body is tangibly present and aware throughout. The etheric body, regardless, communicates directly what is being encountered. This communication, with practice and experience, may be mastered and fine-tuned. Even before mastery, a group of etheric and astral voyages will come back to report, not only personal experiences of objective and collective data, but also changes to the very space their physical bodies have been in—things like increased heat, a mist in the room, a crispiness in the air, the presence of an angelic breeze, time distortions, sparkles in the atmosphere, etc.…

The bodies each report what they are capable of reporting, and they each report to the same internal agency, each in their own language. The magician, the voyager, the dream yogi manages to master the language of these bodies in order to communicate instructions that lead to the manifestation of Will. In many ways, the etheric experience is, then, as tangible as the physical experience to those who have the dreaming body fully developed.

Transcend the Limits of Perception

The ultimate end of the Toltec warrior’s training is to master one’s own perception. In a sense, this is also the aim of yoga, magick, and alchemy. In all these esoteric traditions, the aspirant seeks to fine-tune their awareness to perceive and hold the consciousness of the cosmos, the supreme being.

These practitioners seek to change the way they perceive the universe. They seek to be able to see the universe from the perspective of God, and in this manner attain the knowledge of the gods. It is an act of ultimate aspiration for those who follow the path of knowledge and self-transformation.

The way to do this is to learn to transcend the limits of human perception, and identify with the perception of the infinite. To stand in the place of the supreme being and witness the beauty of creation is to become one with all, even if for a moment. The life that follows this supreme vision will be vastly different from the life of an ordinary human being, a life far beyond the limits imposed by the false beliefs and petty agreements we have allowed to cloud our vision.

–from Dreaming’s Gate: A Doorway to the Higher Dimensions

A Doorway to the Higher Dimensions

This, then, is the key to learning to consciously go from the waking to the Dreaming, and indeed to any other plane of existence where we have formed a body:

You must learn to withdraw your attention from one plane and place it on another at will.

If your attention is placed on the external world, on the stimulation coming from your physical senses, then you will withdraw your attention from the inner world of the dreaming. But, if you know that the Dreaming is always there, it is a matter of just moving your attention from the world your senses perceive and placing it on the inner world.

This movement might seem hard to do at first, but it is actually very, very simple and easy. It is so easy that we do it every day and every night. The difficulty is not in withdrawing the senses from one plane and placing it on another, since we do that every day. The difficulty is learning to do it at will. It is a movement, a switch we have been doing automatically, like breathing and the beating of our heart; but just like breathing, we can also decide to do it voluntarily.

You can choose where your attention will be placed.

You can use the Dreaming’s Gate to train yourself to gain mastery of your attention, to access your dream world at will; and later, even, to use this ability to access higher planes of consciousness.

A View from a Gnostic Scholar… pt 2

Paul Joseph Rovelli continues his review of The Teachings of a Toltec Survivor:

Here’s the next three chapters, read for my review:

The next three chapters present the Great Magician as the demiurge in ancient Gnostic literature. And while there is commonality between the two, there is also differentiation. Chapter 4 is titled: The Personality and the Essence of Sheep. As any Las Vegas magician will tell you, the success of any trick lies in the magician’s ability to divert your attention away from where the real action is happening. But for the Great Magician, he is telling you that you already have a soul; deceiving you from the Gnostic truth that you must create your soul from one’s essence in its admixture with the physical vehicle. Creating the soul is the key to releasing oneself from the imprisonment of the essence that is said to be trapped in matter. And therefore, like Blavatsky asserts, our immortality is conditional; based upon our ability to complete this task.

Chapter 5 is titled: Enlightenment for Sale! Anyone? This chapter dispels the myths of the New Age and other Theosophical misnomers (existing despite Blavatsky’s input). Karma and Maya are accurately described; probably for the first time in writing, anywhere in contemporary literature. Also, some ideas are presented on AMRIT and what the Koyote calls the “coating”—an idea yet, that needs more explaining. But it seems this coating produces the subtle bodies, and I certainly enjoy the parallels with some of the defining documents of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. There are also a few ironic parables the clearly drive home an important message.

And in Chapter 6, titled: The Great Magician, he clearly shows this demiurge, functioning as the lord of the Black School of Magick. While I personally find some disagreement with the Koyote’s rendering of the order of the letters of the Tetragrammaton, I agree with his overall point that cultural emphasis has been placed on patriarchal ideals and away from the matriarchy. And I would disagree with the idea that we are essence trapped in matter, as mentioned above, and that indeed, we are essence liberated in matter; that we can produce this soul that the Great Magician fears we can have the power to produce. And the Koyote does come around to pronounce this by stating, “Fortunately, there can also be liberation in a different way [from death]: in self transformation.”

Other brilliant ideas are presented in this chapter; quite consistent with Thelemic doctrine. This liberation in truly only available for the few; warning us that if it should ever become a large movement, the Great Magician would surely cut it down. This is why Liber AL tells us that it is for the few, who will ‘rule over the many and the known.’ Such rule must then be seen as belonging to those who develop their souls to perfection; a rule of awareness. But also, through the institution of war, which closes the chapter, as one learns of Ra-Hoor-Khuit: “I am a god of war and vengeance.” For though the Great Magician uses war to control the masses, the instrument of war also “creates self-identity,” as the Koyote clearly points out.”–Paul is the director of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X.
