the djinn revised3

20 May

who are the Djinn?
the Djinn are race of spiritual beings that exist in our world and unseen.
although some say they exist in our world alone. i believe they exist in a  spiritual plane very close to our world.
the djinn are of many races but some say they are ranked by colors. whatever this be true or not i myself pefer to see them as different races as Fae have different races such elves, dwarves and so on.
the djinn are said to be the following:
Marid whom dwell in the seas of the earth and live on and near coastal areas especially around the middle east.
the Ifrit exist in desolate areas of the world. especially in deserts and jungles. however some do live in the cities. and some have become rsident djinn.
the jounan are djinn that exist everywhere in the world. and they seem  like to live along side humans. some have become resident djinn.
the ghoul are what i call the gothic sect of the djinn. they live in cemeteries. and live on the life essence residue of the dead.
the shaytan are the rebellious ones. the worst of the lot is lead by Iblis whom was one of the  ascended djinn. whom hates mankind. there is another group lead by his great grandson hamas whom lead a sect of shaytan whom wish to make peace with humanity.
the ascended djinn are many. some are refered to as gold djinn who try to help both djinn and humans to reach the Divine.
the other djinn that i mentioned are the resident djinn. now resident djinn can be any race of djinn that likes to dwell with humans. and human abode.
besides these there are the Qarin/Qarinah djinn. these are male and female djinn that become companions of humans. whom some actually develop a strong relationship with their human companions.  they are the gypses of the djinn world.
i will not go into details on this. because it will spark opinons based on  religious views.  i only post this as information.
my source is of course from my own djinn companions.  as well as what they pointed out from the books that i read.
about the Fae.
what i have been ‘told’ the fae are cousins of the djinn.  and migrated to different areas of the earth. the Fae are called Fox Spirits and Asaras in the Far East and Asia.
they are called Peris in north western india. and so forth.
more info pending
p.s. when i asked who are the djinn? i mean what i say. it is in present tense. the question is here and now. it is the question that is on anyone’s mind. although i accept criticisms of grammar. i will not accept it on the grounds of giving information. it undermines the message. so please accept it with some measure of tolerance. sorry any negative comments to this post or ON ANY OTHER POST  will be trash.

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.

Middle Eastern Shamanistic Healing

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

middle eastern magick part 3: the list of spirits (arwah ) of the sihiriin

15 Jul

the list of spirits and entities  called arwah  among the sihiriin varies depending which sihir you approach.
besides this the list. there is also planes of existence or realms as believed by the sihiriin. so i will list those first.
list of  spirit realms as known by the sihiriin is about five in all. they are the following:
the  first is the Marsha: it is a realm very close to the earth’s dimension it is a realm where the spirit of the dead are not aware that they are dead, because of  their earthly life they aren’t willing to move on, they had died a violent death, they seek justice, vengeance, etc
the sihiriin can contact these spirits. but only when they try to interact with the living. so the sihiriin will try to help the spirit to move on.
the second is called khirbat infar.  it is a realm where the spirits of the dead are unable to move on because of some evil deed in their life on earth.
this realm is also called the marachmawta. although this name refers to a darker place within the kirbat infar.
in other religions these realms would be  refered  to as purgatory, hades, sheol,  summerland,  ghennah,   tartarus the realm of  hela, etc.
the third realm’s name means both the realm and the spirit entities:
they and their realm are called the moustajabiin
the moustajabiin are the entities we know as  the djinn, shedu,  shiddim.  however these names mean the same entities in different cultures such as the jewish and islamic peoples.  they are also  but not limit to would be the fae, nature spirits, etc these beings come through gateways in the earth and above and on it. these same gateways also lead to the realms of the dead as well.  those who dwell here are the marid, ifrit, jounan, dhahab or gold djinn.
dragons also exist here they are called tannim in hebrew. but also called surrish
this realm is also  connected to gaffarim a dark realm where dark entities exist. among them are djinns  such as shaitan, ghul, ardat lili, alu, ezrailim, ubaid, galas.
depending the sihiriin’s background these beings could be bad or good as they choose.
from these realms rule the kings  and queens of the djinn also called the al muhbiin. the kind ones or great ones. these are al muhib, murrah, mirhiz, barqan,  sidi shamhurish,abiad,  maymoun.  as well as queen aynah whom is one of the queens of al qarin, al qarinah   whom is  also called lilitu: their queen mother.
iblis leads the red djinn or shaytan. although these djinn are divided between iblis and his grandson whom is said to converted to islam and opposes his grandfather. and leads shaytan who are good. and are sometimes called the shayian.
also in this realm is the behamahs whom are the grays in UFO circles.
(this might draw some lively discussion. but modern sihirin actually think the grays are a class of djinn refered to as behamahs a subgroup of the ghul.).
there are other realms that are simply called the light and deep darkness.
the deep darkness is the place of entities called the shirririin
the shirririn are true demons. chaos demons who hate everything good as well as love.
they are divided among the following:
a-kaabihiin the bad deed ones
atiliin the devious ones
fasidiin the corrupted ones.
sharririin whom are worst of the lot. and lead the other three. their name means the evil ones.
the place of light is home to:
the khiribu. or cherubim the guardians
the khodam the servitors
the houriyaat the ladies of light.
sarapha burning ones.
the malaki-a the angels
the anunnaki and igigi: the gods.
naphas that have been purified. these include humans and djinn, etc.
there is more of course. but i only give a brief description here.
in the near future. i will add more info.
namaste!  or shalamu allikumu!

the djinn

the Djinn
April 17, 2011.
By richard tanzer (formally richtan on the hubpages)
who are the djinn?
the djinn are spirit beings said to be created by smokeless fire before the creation of mankind
according to islamic religious and mystical texts. this was thousands of years before man.
these beings were created as stewards of the earth and the universe. and were divided by several groups. these are the ghoul, afrit, the aamar, the marid, the qarin, the shaytan.
the shaytan being the worst are refered to as the red djinns
and are the ‘demons.’ they hate the human race.
the afrit or ifrit are responsible for some of the ghosts and
spirit hauntings
the ghoul are vampire or vampiric like spirit beings
the aamar are the green djinn and are interested in our world and us. they have inspire some of fairy lore. as well as nature spirits.
the marid are god like or deify spirit beings. that inspiresome of the myths and legends of the worlds
the qarin/qarinah are djinn who act as guardian spirits. they could be reformed afrit, aamar or even marid. and are assigned by God to some human beings. some according to legends actually can fall in love with humans. and act as incubi or succubi. and in some accounts are the incubz and succubi. and are called qarinei and qarinahei
like us the djinn have the power to choose good or evil
mostly the evil ones are the shaytans lead by iblis who refused to bow before adam at his creation. because of
this iblis and his djinn hate humanity. however not all djinn feel this way. according to some texts. the marid opposes iblis. and are at war with hims
Was Lilith a Djinn?
i believe she was a qarinah of Adam before his fall. and treated Eve as her sister. but after this is only a guess
what Lilith’s relation was to djinn. i know to some jewish mystics that the closest parallel to the Djinnis the Shedim, Shiddahim, Lilioth, Lilim, Seirim. that the islamic word qarin was transformed into another name for Lilith as Karinah or Qarinah. my personal belief is that some Djinn are related to or have some connection to Lilith. as she was a Qarinah of Adam before Eve. and in one book: the legend of the fire spirits she is the mother of all djinn.
Their beliefs:
according to the quran (sura 72) some believe in Allah (God). some do not. some sources go far ar
to say that there are christian djinn, jewish djinn, muslim djinn. as well as pagan djinns
as well as satanic djinn.
as noted; like us they have free will and have the ability to choose between good and evils
descriptions:
it varys: some look like us humans but have wings. some live by oceans and have the form of a mermaid or have wings of a gull. some look like dragons. some move all the time.
they are master shape shifters. and take any form they choose. and have abilities that are far
beyond humanity which their psychic powers seem like magick to us. however this power is not
beyond us. its just we haven’t learned it yet. and are limited by how we preceive the universes
how are they like us:
besides having free will. they are born. grow old and die. their life span is measured in eons.
the youngest being the aamar the oldest being the marid. they have family units: a father, mother,
and a child. each family is part of a clan. each clan is ruled by a chieftan. each chieftan answers to a prince or princess. that prince or princess answers to a king or queen. those kings and queens
answer to a surpreme sultan or sultanna. like us they are divided into nations. and co exist with our world but in their own plane of existence their own dimensional plane. that we sometimes reach in our  dreams or shamanistic experiences.
djinn like us are divided between two sexes. but like us they have their own deviants.
the males are called djinni. the females djinneyehei  they eat. sometimes our food. but mostly they draw energy from the universe. but eating for them is a form of amusement and enjoyment.
their cities exist partly in our world. but mostly in their world. and the entrance points are in the
highest mountains. to hottest deserts.
