More on making ghosts

20 Mar

For the past few months I’ve been trying to work out how to put ghosts into objects. Perhaps in a similar way that stone’s are said to absorb and emit morphic resonance. After much trial and error, I think I finally managed to crack it. The object I put the ghost into is a statue I bought in a charity shop. It’s perhaps work saying that what I made isn’t so much a ghost in the sense of a spirit. Moreover, it’s a kind of psychic thought form programmed to do a number of simple things. Essentially, by my reckoning anway, a ghost is simply a psychic imprint in the time-space fabric. What I’ve done is make an imprint and attach it into the statue I chose.

To test of my ghost works I’ve posted it to a friend of mine. Along with the statue with the ghost in it I also sent another statue that has no vibrations attached to it. My friend will then place each statue in a different environment and we will see if the ghost works, by seeing which one he believes is the one I have put the ghost in. Magick!

Sigil working

12 Jan

After my last post I have spent some time thinking. I decided that I will go ahead with the work at hand. The best way to approach this work, for me, was to create a series of sigils. I then mapped these sigils onto the specific area of Belfast where I felt they needed to be cast. I did this because I wanted to clearly visualise them in my head, as they make up nodes in one larger sigil that I am casting over all parties concerned. I then went to each physical location and cast each sigil. I drew each sigil in each location in chalk, and when the rain washes them away they will be activated.

In saying all of this I want to make quite clear, because I haven’t stated it in a while, that my experiments with Magick are purely that: experiments. I don’t believe in magick. Rather, Like a lapsed catholic, I continue to practice regardless of belief!

Lets see how it develops…

Astral projection

9 Jan

Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to try out some astral projection. Normally when I try projection I aim to go somewhere I know, but this time I decided that I wanted to simply try to project onto the astral realm to meet with beings who were from there.

I used a deep relaxation self-hypnosis technique to get me into a suitable enough conscious state to try to project. Years ago when I first started to experiment with Astral projection, i used to always stumble with the idea of getting out of my body. Now I think about things in a very different way and its much easier. Now I don’t think about getting out of the body at all, I think about moving my consciousness around within the larger fabric of reality, of which I am a constituent part. The rationale is something like this:  I am not in the universe, I am ‘of’ it. As such the same stuff that makes me up makes up stuff elsewhere, in fact everything is all the same stuff, its just my consciousness is located in a specific place within the fabric of reality.  When I want to project what I do is plug into this way of understanding the world. Therefore projecting is not so much about moving, it’s more about becoming conscious elsewhere.  It’s a bit like how electricity will travel through water. By this I mean that the source of the spark may be located in one place, but the electricity will flow everywhere.

Birthday Tarot reading for a friend…

28 Dec

The following Tarot reading is for my dear friend V. It is a birthday present. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATE!!!

I’ve put this reading online so you can always look at this wherever you are in the world. I am using the tree of life spread, which is comprised of ten cards. In recent times I have been using this spread a lot as it provides a lot of detail. I asked the cards how your life might develop over the next year. The reading is as follows:

Card 1 – Aims and ideals of the Situation: Four of Swords
The card in this position represents what you would like to achieve. The card here, the four of swords, is associated with rest retreat and solace. It is possible that you have just been through quite a difficult time, either with work or with relationships and you are seeking some kind of mental and/or physical space where you can gather yourself. This is suggested because there is a particular emphasis in this card upon spiritual healing. In other words, some form of revitalising ones essence. So I would say that my you are in search of some form of inner healing or recharging.

Card 2 – Influences on the situation: Queen of Pentacles
The queen of pentacles can represent one of two things. If it represents a person then it is a woman who is dark of complexion, but not black haired. She is earthy, worldly, practical and generous. She will enjoy all aspects of the hearth and home. She will be spiritual, but grounded in the world. She will be in her thirties or older. If she is younger then she will have an old head on her shoulders.
If this card does not represent a woman then it is a warning to look after your finances, health and or property. Interestingly, this card may suggest you need to treat yourself to some sensual pleasures. So, like the card before it, there is the suggestion that you need to take care of yourself.

Card 3 – General Nature of Question: Princess of Pentacles

The card in this position defines the nature of the question more completely. The card here is the Princess of pentacles. Because of its position I do not think it represents a person. The princess of pentacles, when not presenting a person, can represent the beginnings of a new period of creativity in your life. This may be thought of, not so much as a new phase but as a transitional period in which one ways up ones past creativity and begins to think about how one would like ones creativity to manifest in the future. It could be that you’ve outgrown the skin your in. Again, this card is very interesting, as it seems to follow on from the logic of the previous cards. This card seems to suggest some kind of personal revaluation of oneself in the world, or ones relationship to the world. Perhaps this is the reason for the need for solace or spiritual revival?

Card 4 – The Key: The Chariot

The card I this position represents the key to the situation. It is normally something that has greater significance than you may have realised, or perhaps something you have not considered at all. The Card in this position is the Chariot. Some people say that this card has to do with controlling oppositional forces in ones life. Yet, I would tend to say that it is about understanding how differing forces may compliment each other, acting as polarities rather than as opposites. The implicit suggestion here is the need to make two aspects of your being, which currently feel out of kilter, work together for you. This does not mean that both aspects needs resolved into one. Rather, the way in which they operate in tandem is what must be sorted out. A positive thing about this card and its position is that it suggests that you have the ability to do this.

Card 5 – Influences of the present: The Star

The card in this position is suggesting the things in your present that you need to take account of to benefit form this reading. The card in this position is The Star. Key words for The Star are Intuition, hope, healing, calm and openness.  The Star seems to very much relate to some of the suggestions made at the start of the reading.  The Star is a very positive card. It suggests inward feelings of positive self-esteem. It can also suggest that you are the recipient of much love (whether you know it or not) at this time in your life. It is also associated with creativity, the drawing up of ideas form the unconscious. This is a very powerful card to have positioned in the present. It suggests that you need to take stock of your own creativity and the love that others have for you. Perhaps, it is a suggestion that it is a time to contemplate ones place in the world through consideration of the aspects of The Star, so focus on the positive aspects of what is important about being alive.

Card 6 – Influences of the Future: Two of Swords
The card in this position represents what one will have to look out for in the future. The card here is the two of swords. Inherent in this card is the suggestion that two things – people, feelings or views – are set in opposition.  This card suggests procrastination. So while you may currently be in or in need of a state of self-reflection, this card suggests that you may not reach a state of resolve for the matters that are troubling you. Alternatively, if you do reach a state of resolve then it will be an uneasy one, which will give way to some form of conflict, which will then clear the air.
The other way to look at this card is to read it as a suggestion that one is to try to avoid reaching a situation of over procrastination, as this will not aid you in your life, rather it will hinder your development.

Card 7 – Effect of the significator: five of Swords
This is the affect that you have on the situation. This card is very telling, as it is the five of swords. This card literally represents playful conflict. The kind that one may have with a work colleague or friend. This card also holds a warning: be aware that what starts in fun can very quickly become serious, earnest conflict. Therefore the card here may suggest that while you have entered into something for fun, that you should be aware of where it may lead. When we enter into conflict for fun, we often assume that other people understand this, but this is not always the case.

Card 8 – Effect of the Environment: Four of Cups
This card not only represents the affects of the physical environment but also the affects of the general conditions of ones life upon the situation. The card here is the four of cups. This card is associated with a period of stagnation. It suggests that you may currently be feeling like you life has somehow got stuck. This card suggests that it may now be time to lie fallow for a period. To let ones creative juices slowly revitalise. Like the cards at the beginning of the reading, this card also suggests that it is time for you to have some kind of spiritual healing. There is the suggestion of the use of some form of ritual for this. There is also the suggestion that you need to reconnect with nature. If water cannot flow it becomes stagnant. Ergo you need to connect to the spring that fuels you.
Another reading of this card is that it is a warning to not ignore gifts or opportunities through laziness.

Card 9 – Hopes and Fears: Seven of Wands
The card in this position represents the things you either hope or fear will happen. The card here is the Seven of wands, which again is a card associated with conflict. This card suggests that you are involved in a struggle that either challenges your supremacy, leadership or more over, your judgement. Yet there is also a suggestion here that you will find this struggle exhilarating. A positive aspect of the conflict noted by this card is that you will be able to find some vantage point form which to survey the problem. So your decisions in relation to it will not be entirely blind or knee jerk.

Card 10 – The final Outcome: Nine of Cups
The car din this position represents the final outcome of the situation. This is not set in stone as it were, but should rather be treated as a signpost to what might be, depending on how you navigate the situation.
The card in this position is the nine of cups. This card is quite favourable in this position. All the nines are associated with a move towards completion in some way. The completion tends to have more relevance spiritually than physically. The nine of cups suggests that you may have realised a dream or a wish that you have held for a very long time. This card suggests a full and rewarding emotional life. It suggests that although you may have faced difficulties in the past, but now you are surrounded by close relationships and social warmth. It suggests a healthy connection to your creativity and to nature. Life is treating you well is the message in this card.
Yet one other aspect of this card which I feel you would want to know is that it also contains a question: In all the success and warmth that this card brings you, are you forgetting anyone who should be celebrating with you, or who may also deserve some thanks or praise?

All in all these cards suggest that you are currently in a period of great contemplation and are seeking some form of vantage point from which to consider a situation. It also suggests that you are in need of some form of spiritual healing in order to arrive at this vantage point. I don’t know why, but I have the feeling that this situation may only be internal, but may also involve another person. Ultimately though, these cards suggest that this situation will have a successful outcome.

Assessment of Tarot reading July – October 2008

2 Nov

AS anyone who has been following this blog will know, I did a Tarot reading at the beginning of the year and I’ve been trying to keep track of how accurate it has been. the last time I did a check on it, it was June. As I haven’t passed comment on this reading in some time I thought I’d like to do so now.

The readings for July, August and September were as follows:

July: Queen of Pentacles
This card may represent a woman who is generous patient and pragmatic. If it doesn’t represent a woman then it could represent a situation the need to take care of my body, finances or possessions. It could also symbolise something to do with my relationship, or that I need to give some attention to my need for bodily fulfilment. Stranger and stranger is all I can say.

August: The Wheel
What a card and at what a point! In straight up honesty I am hoping to hand my PhD in either during or at the end of August, so the wheel in this position is a very promising sign: This card is associated with the completion of cycles and the beginning of new ones. Hopefully this is a sign that I will finish up on time.

September: Princess of Pentacles
Now, this is a strange card to have here. This card is normally associated with the beginning of new undertakings in the world. So then again, following the last card maybe it’s not so strange at all. Academic years normally begin in September so perhaps it is the sign that I will get or begin a new job working for a University during this month.

October: Seven of Swords
Now this card ca be read in two distinct way. The first reading suggests that the intellectual and agile quality of the swords combined with the mystical characteristics of the number seven combine in this card to herald a new and exciting atmosphere that will totally refresh me. The other reading suggests that I may be proposing some bold and daring idea that is challenging to someone or something. Perhaps this card is a sign that my PhD viva may take place in October.

NOW The first thing I have to say about this reading is that I didn’t hand my PhD in August as I thought I might. However, I did get a full draft completed by August. SO in a funny way the card and my reading of iy are correct. The card for July, The Princess of Pentacles does make sense in the reading also, although not in the way I thought it would. I submitted my PhD in September and since then I’ve been spending some time giving thought to many different aspects of my life and have been taking my first few steps along the road to shapping things in my life into the shape I want them. A kind of Life after PhD state of being. The reading for October also makes sense. My PhD viva is scheduled for November, and during October my examiners will be reading my thesis, so this is the bold proposal to the world that this card suggests.

International remote viewing experiment

Earlier this week I had a specially designed box somewhere in Belfast. Inside the box was a very particular object. Today I posted a series of letters to people all over the world inviting them to use psychic abilities to discern as of the following information about the box as they can:
1. Its location
2. It’s contents
3. What it looks like

The letters were sent to the following people:
1. Al ‘Blaster’ Akerman (USA)
2. Olchar Lindsman (USA)
3. Jubal and Matt Brown (Canada)
4. Vittore Baroni (Italy)
5. Vassya Vassileva (Bulgaria)
6. Artpool (Hungary)
7. clement Padin (Urugay)
8. dr Marcelo Lima (UAE)
9. Loyd Dunn (Czech Republic)
10. Martin Zet (Czech Republic)
11. Georg Ladanyi (Germany)
12. Boris Nieslony (Germany)
13. Derek Holzer (Germany)
14. Roddy and Judit Hunter (England)

18. Stewart Home (England)
19. The Man from Icon (England)
20. Sinead Bhreathnach-Cashell (Northern Ireland)
21. Jane Horton (England)

Now I’m gonna sit back and see what happens. It should be interesting to say the least.

Summoning experiment a great sucess!

14 Aug

About a week ago I decided to try an experiment by performing a summoning. My intention with this was to summon the Reclusive Extrovert. I conferred with the Reclusive extrovert about this and made clear my intention go summon him.
I thought about this for a good long time, I took the desire in my mind and stuffed it inside an image of us meeting. I laughed about it because it was absurd and then forgot about it. At around 2:50pm today I went to the shops. As I got to the Ormeau road I spied the Reclusive Extrovert sitting in a car in Traffic. He was trying to decide whether of not to pull out into a different lane. The Summoning worked I thought. But is it really him. As if to answer my question he hung about slightly longer than I thought he needed too in order to pull out. I sent him a text message to let him know the summoning had worked.
Fantastic!
On the down side though, this web site went down at around 2:40pm, just before I went out. I suspect this was the minor altercation in reality required to make this summoning work
