The Assault on Reality / Re: Halloween brainstorming
« Last post by Moon1ight on Yesterday at 03:29:36 pm »
Today I found a nice little spot for the ritual.  :) 
It in a small wooded part of a nearby park and some folks apparently wanted to build something there, so there are wooden (My english breaks down :D) stillages? palletes? [Those wooden things which fork-lifters lift with stuff on it :D] lying around, so I can build a makeshift table to put the candles and the photo on.

Obviously, the place needs some preparation :D :



Since tonight the veil is thinnest
We will make the Magick rise
Show the world variety's wonder
Make the truth clear to all eyes

The DKMU Vault / Re: Doombringer and cats
« Last post by Moon1ight on October 19, 2017, 07:24:17 pm »
Hi :)

I remember that the Doombringer was connected with the Cheshire Cat. I think it's in the Godforms-pdf. Otherwise I have no idea -- only thing I can add is that we have this little cat spirit in the Network: https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=366.0 ;)  Maybe this topic is relevant for you currently?

I'd also ask your question in the FB-DKMU group -- more folks read there and maybe have some ideas. Though I'm quite grateful for you also writing here :)

The DKMU Vault / Doombringer and cats
« Last post by Dalabrac on October 13, 2017, 07:53:08 pm »
So over the last couple months I've been seeing cats out of the corner of my eyes multiple times a day. At first I thought nothing of it, until I started working with 663. For a day or two, no more cats. Then a cat or cats two or more times daily sonsistently since. I know he has some cat symbolism and connections, so a part of me thinks the cats are indicative of specific interest on the Doombringer's part in what I'm up to or something. On the other hand, they could be no more than misfiring neurons reminding me cats exist for some reason. Thoughts, anyone?

The Assault on Reality / Re: Halloween brainstorming

Some ideas that my house has been considering:


1. Don black robes, go trick or treating to collect offerings and snacks
2. Paint squares of flat plywood to make sigil plates, like little mini altars that can be left around. We might hook them together to be like a convenient teleport grid for wandering spirits, with candy nearby for sustenance, and probably incorporate the LS.
3. Summon the ghosts of ancestral magicians and ask them for advice, omens, etc. One idea was to auto-write messages and then tie them to balloons and let them fly to reach their intended target. I kind of wanted to give them access to the internet somehow, but I don't know how I would do it, unless I could get in enough of a trance to let them speak through me onto here or one of the facebooks.


Moonlight, I can see what Roommates think of doing our summoning ritual in public. That seems to happen anyway... But these aren't hard plans yet.

Sounds interesting :) Welcome to the Forum!

You might find some inspiration in 2014's Halloween material https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=140.15

I personally am not a very calendarial person and don't really connect to "special dates" -- I try to make every "normal" day good and magickal :) So I'm not really the right person to answer here. However, the day before I plan to be in Munich and hopefully get us a tag or two there ;)

I might find some semi-hidden wooded spot close to the river and make a little ritual with some candles, charge some sigils that way. Maybe get a Black Robe, so that if anyone sees me it will be taken as fun? :) I begin to like where this is going. Basically Halloween as "Night of Public Magick".

Edit: On Facebook, Frater Alysyrose posted this Sigil:



He says: "Sigil for lifting the veil. Halloween 2017."

Edit2: Here's a link to a square version I created. That's easier to print on the public photo-printers we have in some shops: https://s1.postimg.org/1cencmam8v/Lift_The_Veil_Square.jpg

Edit3: Multiple coloured versions were created by the awesome folks :) You can find them in the Halloween-Thread if you're in the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/DomusKaoticaMarauderUnderground/permalink/1838190526210708/

The Assault on Reality / Halloween brainstorming
« Last post by Carthor on October 11, 2017, 12:22:05 am »

This is my first post on the forums so far, its good to be here, recently ive been a little more active in the IRC and facebook, and now here!
Now down to business, Halloween is just three weeks away, which I believe is more than enough time to plan a large group working. Halloween is a perfect night for DKMU projects, the veil is thinnest, and best of all everyone thinks the veil is thinnest. Halloween this year is on a Tuesday, associated with Mars and the color scarlet which works out well for Ellis. I would like to see this go somewhere in the direction of infusing Ellis with all the spooky ghost stuff that normally goes on.
What do you all think?

Chaos Magic & Beyond / The Second Spirit -- Enhancing Willpower
« Last post by Moon1ight on October 10, 2017, 01:49:41 pm »
Hi everyone  :)

Somehow I feel that it is time to share another of my Servitors with you.

He is the Second Spirit. His intent is roughly "To ensure that I have Great Willpower and Self-Discipline". Here is his sigil -- this interpretation was created by Kindra Tia Haugen https://kindrahaugen.wixsite.com/kindra-tia-art -- thanks again :)



I think Willpower is, just like Cheerfulness, a topic common enough that folks might benefit from this. And I also think that the effectiveness of such Magick will increase, if more people use it. So there :)

The Spirit looks to me somwhat like an Ancestor Ghost from TESIII Morrowind http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Undead#Ancestor_Ghost but in faded Gold, not grey, with gusts of golden light around him. He also wears his Sigil as a mask on his face, but since it's all transparent, the skull is still visible.

The first part of the idea is that that this will boost one's general willpower. Just the ability to pull though on one's plans, get up and do stuff etc. That is a kind of background-effect. And the second part is, when I actually have a hard time to get myself to do something just now, visualising that sigil as a mask over my face and the Spirit telling me, in a deep voice, to get on with it, helps quite a bit ;)  The point is that he wants you to get ahead with what you really want -- to push you to become the version of yourself, that you really want to be.

That should be enough to get started working with him, in whichever way you do it. I'll add a short part from my Reflections-tread:
"> Doing Magick with that focus. "intentionally infusing ones Will with magick" -- "Summon the vision, and more importantly, summon the Feeling, and Pretend like a kid that you’re casting your spell, and like a kid, Believe it.".
a.) Influence your life directly. In short, gather Energy, then "program" it with your intent (as an affirmation in the present tense), then activate it. (on programming: "the more realistic your visualizations are and the more astral senses you use, the more effective the working will be, and infuse it with as much energy as you can, the more brilliant, the better, using your visualization. Feel happy emotions."*)
b.) Power your servitors with it ("Throughout the centuries, witches kept servitors, some of these relationships have even spanned lifetimes. This is achieved by calling the servitor by the name given to it, and breathing more light energy into it, reaffirming its mission")"  ( https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=380.msg1778#msg1778 )

A bit of history, for those who care. I don't remember a lot, unfortunately. Somewhen a few years ago, maybe only 2 or 3, I decided that I need a sigil for willpower and came up with the above, just rotated slighty. I saw it as the Sun beaming down sunrays. Then a few months later, I had an uncalled visualisation of a kind of ghost next to my bed. Not a strong hallucination or so, just like I would visualise with open eyes an apple on a table that isn't actually there. But in this case, I didn't try to visualise a ghost (though I do think that I saw a cool ghost-picture some time before that.).. But it was kind of non-threatening.  So I tried to ask it what it is, and tried to think what could be going on, and then, I don't remember how, it ended up taking that sigil as a mask and kind of becoming a Servitor for that Sigil. Don't know what you make of this -- maybe some kind of unconscious evocation while sleeping that caused this to happen :) Either way that has been a while ago and it is now an established part of my life. I'm regularly powering it up in roughly the way mentioned above. And my willpower is improving too :)

Later, I charged it with this little ritual:



Hopefully, this will be useful to someone :)
Sidenote: Though there is no LS included, he considers himself part of the LS-Network :)

Edit: I forgot to mention, he is not Second because of any chronological order, but because he is somewhat concerned with Second Order Desires, i.e. what you wish to wish . It's a concept i I learned in Philosophy, see here for a short explanation https://www.uark.edu/campus-resources/rlee/hintsp12/oh/frank-2order.html

Edit 2: I never felt the urge to share this one before... and don't have an urge to share the others. But he today somewhat demanded to become public. That's quite interesting in itself... Maybe someone needs something like that just now and that thought propagates through the LS-network? In any case I'm kind of nervous about it, as if it was a performance on stage :D but feel that this should help :)

Chaos Magic & Beyond / Re: Review of Ray Sherwin's new book, "Ouroboros"
« Last post by thief_and_a_liar on October 10, 2017, 12:39:43 pm »
I think that in the process of creating a sigil is where you do most of the job.

Sherwin says that it is a mistake to make the sigil into a desire or a wish.

"The Result of my sigil already exists."

As to working with a sigil over time, he just says to keep the sigil in mind as much as possible.

To get power into the sigil he mentions yoga I think. And well, we could make a very long list of things to do to power a sigil.

Chaos Magic & Beyond / Re: Review of Ray Sherwin's new book, "Ouroboros"
« Last post by Moon1ight on October 10, 2017, 11:00:30 am »
Thanks for the review :) This part really interests me: "He comes with some advice about using sigils, like working with a sigil over a period of time instead of forgetting it." -- since this is kind of what I do already. The Fire-And-Forget approach never really worked for me, and I sure did try. So I'd like to know, what does he suggests for "working" with a sigil? How does he get "Power" into it etc. ? And also, what do you suggest to the same questions ;) if that fits your style?

Edit: Thief answered in the IRC "He says he keeps the sigil in mind as much as possible. also, not making the sigil a desire, instead making it as something that has already happened, or something like that" -- thanks :) So nothing to new here.

Chaos Magic & Beyond / Review of Ray Sherwin's new book, "Ouroboros"
« Last post by thief_and_a_liar on October 04, 2017, 11:47:43 pm »
I got a pdf of this book from Sherwin himself, promising him to write a review. Here it is:

Review of Ray Sherwin's new book, "Ouroboros".

It is a short book, 110 pages.

First, Sherwin goes into everything that went wrong with the occult order Illuminates of Thanateros, that he was a part of creating.

He then comes with some of his own opinions regarding magic:

"No-one needs to be ritually sodomised or exposed to human sacrifice and vile abuse for their own personal development."

"It has always been my view that the pursuit of money disables magical ability."

He muses about his self and his environment, and then goes into the mechanics of sigil work. He comes with some advice about using sigils, like working with a sigil over a period of time instead of forgetting it.

The rest of the book consists of some poem-like stuff. I am not a fan of poetry, so I leave this to those who like that sort of thing.

Sherwin is against occult orders, and believes it is more powerful to work alone.

He also does not seem to like evocation and invocation that much, stating that sigils provide a more direct route. He also says that talking to the subconscious is like talking to a stranger whose english is not very good. This reminds me of what Dion Fortune said in her Psychic Self-Defence book, that the subconscious mind does not understand language at all. But it understands pictures.

I really shouldn't read occult literature. I have read enough of that sort of thing, and never seem to learn anything new anymore. Still I was curious about Sherwin's new work, as I have been a fan of his previous books. So, for some this book could be worth something, but it wasn't exactly worth much for me.
