I just received a comment from a friend that says since he doesn't do CM that he has no idea what I'm doing. First, allow me to apologize. Sometimes, I write to share specific things other times I hit diary mode, well most of the time. If something needs clarified please let me know and I will usually be happy to, time permitting.
First allow me to describe the scene.
I have a temple room in my home that is either set up with a traditional CM/masonic double-cube altar in the center with four side altars or the full Enochian kit. Check the Enochian tabs to see that if you want.
I am not doing my current work there.
Instead I have a Jason Miller/CM altar. I have a shelf with a white candle for the sephira Keter (unity wiht the all) four other candles on a desk in lower sephirotic colors (yellow, green, orange and purple) and a red candle for the divine earth on the floor.
Also uopn the desk is a black circular mirror handmade by myself. Upon it I have written in white crayon the sigil of the entity I am seeking to contact. To either side of my chair and just behind me are two white candles that illuminate the mirror and my reflection in it. I then enter a trance by gazing at the mirror and calling the entity I want verbally and mentally.
Once the spirit shows up, I test it to make sure it is the right one. Then I simply interact with the spirit in question. My purpose is to break a cycle of thought that is preventing me from growing spiritually and as a magician. I've made great progress in a short period of time. I have hope of making a break through on many levels.
There are some CM tricks to keep the lower entities in line so one doesn't become obsessed as can sometimes happen with unruly spirits. However, almost any technique used to directly interact with spirits done too often can be problematic. One needs friends to keep an eye out on you. Fortunately, besides the folks here that would notice if I fell off the deep end, I have others that would grab me by the lapels if necessary.
(Someone is going to ask me what those tricks are to keep things in line. Sorry, I keep trying to type that and it keeps going away. I am taking that as a sign to keep my mouth shut. )
