lilith an enigma revised

30 Jan
  Lilith from Goddess to Demoness; and back again.
The story of Lilith is perhaps the oldest as Humanity’s time on earth. She first started as Lilitu a goddess of fertility and sex in Mesopotamia. And has been identified with Abtagigi as Kalili. And later identified as the Hand of Inanna/Ishtar and her high priestess. In her darker side she has been identified with Ardat Lili a summerian succubus as well as with Lamashtu  a female demon that preyed upon children and  and pregnant women. When in 508bce the Babylonians  under Nebuchadnessar  attacked Jerusalem. And took some  of the Israelites back to Babylon. The jewish captives incorporated some of the gods and goddesses into their Religion. and labelled them as demons.  One of these was Lilith.She appears in the book of Isaiah chapter 34:14-15 and the Alphabet of Sirach. the latter as the first wife of Adam. who left him after an arguement over equality. and was demonized. This demonizing of Lilith continued through the middle ages in mystical commentaries of the Torah such as the Zohar. Which borrows from the Alphabet of Sirach. and looks upon Lilith as a queen of demons. and mother of the succubi whom are known as the Liliot or Lilim and as Qarinah Djinneyeh in Islam.  However not all of the books of the Zohar saw Lilith as evil.  In the Zohar the book of Concealment chapters 4 and 5 tells of the symbolism of the two prositutes whom came before king Solomon. who were amazed by his wisdom. and was attached to it. it also speaks of the daughters of men who seduced the sons of God would be reconcilied to Adam through  the Wisdom of solomon. the daughters in some commentaries  are actually  the daughters of Lilith. (see the Zohar volume 5 the pritzker edition pages 569-580 notes 67-68;79 translated by daniel c matt). One kabbalist of the 16th century who’s name was rabbi Issac Luria went further to say that Lilith was actually reconciled to Adam through the marrige of Leah to Jacob. (see window of the soul: the kabbalah of issac luria pages 85, 158) and there are many Liliths (148). the other Liliths one is the wife of adam qadmon also refered to as the first eve. another Lilith is refered to as isheth zenninim.  or Malahat a darker Lilith whom is the wife of Samael.  identified with Cain and Esau in the kabbalah.  In the late 19th to early 20th century a christian fantasy writer by the name of george mac donald  wrote his book Lilith. that tells of Lilith’s reconciliation to Adam and Eve.
Lilith in Islam is hardly mention except as Al Qarinah the mother of the Djinn. whom is later identified as Laylah A mysterious divine feminine entity in the poetry of the Sufis. Most Muslims and Sufi agree that the Djinn can be redeemed if they turn away from evil as surah 72 or sura al jinn teaches.
what all this means is that Lilith is slowly emerging from being ostracized and demonized; to be restored as one of the Aspects of the Divine Feminine.  whom is called the Shekinah, Allat, Sophia.
in celtic mythology she is linked to the Morrigan the phantom Queen . through their shared Avatar Morgan the Fey.
and in greek mythology with Hecate, Medea, and Lamia.

for  me personally  Lilith is the primordial Eve, She and her daughters whom are also Liliths are Grandmothers, mothers , sisters and at times spouses to the human race.

19 Jan

Middle Eastern Shamanistic Healing has many levels. and techniques.
Here i am going to discuss personal healing.
Please understand this is based on Jewish Shamanism and  Arabic Sahiriin Healing.
Like in all shamanism smudging  are involved. However a basic stick of incense can be used. and a crow’s feather.
If you have a Spirit Companion or Companions please include them in this if possible.
First of all close your eyes. and  clear your mind for about three minutes. visualize the ocean or the desert or the woods.
Then open your eyes. and light the incense and hold it the hand that you are not in the habit of using first. Then take the Feather in the hand that you use for writing, etc.
hold the incense in front of you. and wave the feather at the smoke so the smoke comes to you. and repeat these words in hebrew:
ana yah oshee ana  ( yah represents the divine Y is the Father god  H is the Mother goddess)
ana yah shee ana
ana hatzlee cha na
ana hatlee cha na
ana yah oshee ana
ana yah oshee ana
ana hatzlee cha na
ana hatlee cha na
ana yah oshee ana
ana yah oshee ana
el na rafa na, el na rafa na (el represents god or the  divine masculine)
elat na rafa na, elat na rafa na. ( elat represents the goddess or the divine feminine)
the next words are in arabic:ine
rahmaat arwahmy  karimah sa-i-dee
rahmaat arwahmy karimah sa-i-dee
say this entire paragraph three times.  then put out the incense.
and say i give thanks to the Divine God /Goddess for hearing me.
and my spirit/entity family for helping me.

Egyptian Magick in summary

19 Jan

Egyptian Magick.
I will not go into detail about Egyptian Magick. But i Will give a Brief Summary.
Egyptian Magick was maded known to the world in a brief mention in the Book of Exodus of the Hebrew Bible.
What it doesn’t mention; at least not directly. Is that the Egyptians based their Magick
on Theistic Magick. That is they petition a god or goddess for a specific need.
And then cast their Spells. In many ways it is like Celtic Magick in which Druids of old would do the same.  However when a god and goddess blesses a Priest, Shaman.
They can work Magick without Petitions.
The Gods and Goddesses whom they petition are:
Osiris the god of the underworld. and guardian of Creation.
His sister Isis, Goddess of Life and Light, mistress of Magick, first Queen of the underworld. she is also the  first wife of Osiris.
Her twin sister is Nepthys she is the goddess of the night. and dark magick
Osiris is represented by the constellation of Orion.
Whereas Isis is represented by the Star Sirius in the Constellation of Canis Major.
Both goddesses in some ancient texts are represented by the phases of the Moon.
The full moon is Isis. the new moon is Nepthys.
Isis’ son Horus is a master of Light Magick. and is at war with Set the brother of Osiris. Is the God of Darkness and the Desert. he represented by the body of human with the head of creature that is half jackal and half ibis.
There was a brief time when Set or Sutekh was seen as benevolent deity. but when the cult of Horus took over. He was maded as an evil entity.
However there  was a more evil Entity called Apothis. the serpent of darkness. and is at War with Ra.
The Greatest and well known Magick text of the Egyptians was the Papyrus of Ani. or the Egyptian book of the dead..

middle eastern purification and protection ritual

18 Jan

this ritual is based on a islamic purification ritual against shadow beings

step one:cup your hands before your face and say the following in arabic:
we have given you al-kaw-thar (in-na A’aa tie-nak-a al kaw-thar
so pray to your lord and sacrifice (Fa-ssal-lee le-rub-bi-ka wa an-hhar
that your hater be the one cut. ( in-na Sha-nee-a-ka hua al-ba-tar

the pagan version would be:
we give you al kawthar and al manat ( in-na A-aa tie-nak-a al kaw-thar waw Al ma-nat . Al Manat being the name  of the Goddess
and the rest of the lines are the same as above.

then spit in your hands three times and rub yourself three times as if you were washing yourself. and  say the following:
oh spirits of the rouhaniah of Al Kawther ( waw Al Manat)
protect me from the touch of and presence of the shadow creatures and the children of iblis and the Dark one.
post script: this is a pagan version not the original

why do spirits/entities click?

13 Jan

it is a common thing with them. when my lady first came to me. she used that form of communication to me.  there was always a pattern. she would click once then twice.  my guess it is a form of amusement.
you see when humanity  started talking  to the spirit realms. they would tell the entity or spirit to knock once for yes and twice for no. or vice a versa. clicking is a modern version of this.
when they do this; they are not trying to communicate with you. they like to play. its like a game of peekaboo for them. trust me if they have something to say. they will let you know. by communicating to directly through telepathy, dreams, by touching you. manifesting themselves in many ways.  and yes i had that experience. lol

restoration

24 Dec

sometime ago in my studies in the kabbalah i learned about tikkun olam. now what that is the repairing  or restoration of spirits in the universe. i also had learned that the spirits are not just human spirits but some  nonhuman spirits as well. and the latter seek to lift human souls and spirits up. because  as they do it. they themselves are lifted up.
i had learned today that this my calling in the many lives that i lived. and i might be still doing it in the next lives to come.
i thank the Divine for reminding me this  again today.

my experiences with shadow beings. and my spirits defense.

25 Sep

as noted i did have experiences with shadow beings.
my first experience was back in the 80s when my succubus had started her relationship with me. but mostly in dreams.
one night in august i felt an extreme chill as i laid on the bed. i felt a dark presence above me. i felt a terrible fear then felt my energy drawn from me.
as i felt this presence descend on me. i started praying to the divine for help.
suddenly i heard a voice  of a woman say: you will not touch him.
and i saw a silver orb dart in on the dark presence and caused it to scatter.
recently a year ago. i saw one of my dragons firing balls of light at a spider shadow in from of the television. and i woke up and felt the same Presence again.
however my succubus was on top of me. it seem to be a tug of war between them.
then i saw several orbs and mists of all colors move on the Shadow Presence. and it vanished without a trace.
