Another Day in Work and Contemplation...

I am not used to liking everybody. Mostly I am a curmudgeon. Suddenly, I am much less so. Suddenly, I don't dislike folks. This is a bit odd.

I have given a lot of credit to Jason for teaching me some necessary things at just the right moment. However, I think the way I am doing the LBRP now and invoking spirit have a lot to do with it too. 

I am not using the banishing earth pentagrams anymore. Instead, I am banishing each element from its quarter and pushing all of that element out of my body in the process. After doing the Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram, I draw the active and passive pentagrams of spirit over the altar and rend the veil.  I may or may not vibrate Eheieh when I draw the pentagrams but I always say, "I invoke spirit" at some point during the process. 

I think I am beginning to understand something. Thanks the the Golden Dawn, Tipereth is thought to mean beauty. Yet, that is a lesser translation. The most common translation used before the Golden Dawn is something much more descriptive. Though, I can see how beauty applies.

Vision

I felt the pull to enter my temple room tonight. I entered and connected with my HGA. He said that he was there but did not call me, "something else did."  I saw primal fire. Then a camp fire. Then a vision. I am not sure that it is proper to the tradition I came from to relate that vision here but I'm thinking about it. I understand some things I didn't understand before. 

Results of Recent Meditation

Last night, I mentioned that I focused on my root chakra during a meditation and that my back muscles relaxed. If that had any effect on my back problems, it made them temporarily worse. I had a bad day.

It is partly because you're invoking spirit. Another part is that you are actively pushing out the elements from your body. You aren't just passively doing it, like what happens when you do a banishing rite. You do the rite and then, let it do its job without anymore conscious input from you. By doing the rite and then, thinking it's leaving you, as part of the rite, you're making it more deliberate and other things related to that element are being drawn out. You're balancing yourself out better. But, keep in mind that when one is totally balanced, you aren't 'above everything'. The forces in you are just better counter opposed.

>> If that had any effect on my back problems, it made them temporarily worse.

The root chakra deals with elimination more than muscles of the back. However, elimination runs along a good deal of the back, so it could have been from that part by that spot of your back.

Also, the root is the most dense energetically for your body before you start dealing with the below root chakras that correspond to things, like anger and selfishness. So, it isn't surprising that your root would take something that is or was wrong because it wasn't thoroughly cleared (just because it doesn't show up in the material body doesn't mean it isn't totally cleared from you) to show you something.

Also, if the area of your back that hurt is near your root, the close proximity can cause the exaserbation because it's there.

Damn straight. That is an easy mistake to make. I've made it in the past and I've watched many others make it too.
