Last night, I moved from the lowest part of the path of the Devil to a much higher level. This is not from Hod to Tipereth. This was vertical as in rising in the planes. There are three significant factors here:
- The astral forms I encountered at the higher planes were solid. They had weight. They were tangible. These perceptions were very new to me.
- I was shown three levels of the sphere of Tipereth. These were very distinct. I used to think of these levels as more theoretical than actual. They are more real to me now. Also, what I did not record last night was the realm of the choir grew to huge proportions. In asking about that I was told the job of the choir was to make things manifest. Their size indicated their ability to find the path for the magick to take. I have called this path the weakest link (which could actually be a strong point) in the past. This makes me feel that working with choirs is much more important than I previously thought.
- Orobas went with me on part of this journey. The god I was with literally called him forth to follow. Mentions of the American Goetia were made but nothing came of it.
Or so I thought, today I woke to horrible back pain. Is there a link there? Is part of me holding on to something so tight it messes with my back issues? I have no clue really but I thought it worth recording that a journey so strong as to make astral beings feel so physical could have resulted in my physical issue flaring up. I just don't know.
I will say that I greatly enjoy being so astral as feel astral bodies as physical. To some that may indicate that i was on the lowest levels of astral. I don't know. I make no claims to anything higher. That said, adding not only a sense of touch but density (weight) to my astral perceptions seems to be an increase in skill level or perceptual ability.
