10 Card Read Day 30 (Last day)

Posted in Occult with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2017 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

Today is the last day of my 30 day Tarot Read challenge. I was able to read everyday, although I may have not posted on time everyday. But its on my laptop, and not my phone and I won’t put it on my phone so I can unplug every now and again.

I have had a really good time working with my Divination Goddess Gremory and Ipos on the last few days of my readings. These cards, the Thoth Deck are truly beautiful and on point with the readings.

4 water, 4 air, 2 earths

Where are you now, potential/challenges, what to focus on, your past, your strengths, near future, suggested approach, what you need to know, hopes and fears, your potential future.

28 Day Working Day 4

Posted in Occult with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2017 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

Today was a very easy day. I did my ritual and meditation to Uvall, lit a candle and it burned constantly throughout the day. The wax is completely gone, only the wick remains. I did go ahead and gathered all my Daemon workings and paperwork so they are neatly organized.

I started my research on the Orishas that have called out to me. I have a lot already, but now it is getting serious.

No blood working today, kept everything inside of me lol. Did a morning meditation to Leviathan and still working on a fire meditation for Sekhmet for the night time. I played with the puppy, explored more groups, acquired more books, and just chilled out. I didn’t read anything, just watched movies.

Towards the end of the evening, my partner and I talked and I went in to a few trances, we bounced ideas off each other and what not, and of course I pulled my tarot card to write down and focus on.

My research is actually leading me into redoing my Divinatory Gate Walking with some new ideas. So I feel a little excited. I have around three other path workings I want to redo and get sent off.

Day 4 down.

I have around a few hundred books on my Kindle, around a hundred currently on my kitchen table, and yet I just placed an order for about another 20 to finish of collections. Between my Kindle, laptop, and my bookshelf I have around 4700 books. And counting.

So here are my favorite and prized books. I was sorting through everything and figured I should share some of these. You may find something that you want to add to your collection. I believed I wrote about a few of these books and they will linked below.

20160412_101401

The Grimoire of Tiamat by Asenath Mason is one of my favorite Grimoires. My favorite thing about this book are the Children of Tiamat. They are not to be played with. Rituals are intense. The sigils and pictures in this book are breathtakingly transportable. I love when I touch a symbol, painting, or sigil; I can be have a quick astral trip to wherever it wants to take me to show me things. An amazing book. Here is the link to the review Grimoire of Tiamat.

20160412_101509

The Book of Azazel by E. A. Koetting is very interesting. I;m not a fan of his, but this book seemed like something I need to have. The book in the beginning has this Catholic vibe to it which I was like hell no. But the section with the Legion was worth getting the book, I think. I don’t agree with the occult’s person taste for sex, money and power. I’m not going for that bullshit, nor will I trap anything in a vessel. The Legion I can work with for realistic goods of higher attunement, not these basic cares. Still, even now, I’m glad I did purchase. Here is the original review The Book of Azazel.

 

The Keys of Ocat by S. Connolly is a really good working Grimoire. I have two books, the left one in regular binding and the one on the right bound in leather. The one on the left has the most notes and highlighting in it, while the right is preserved. Basically if Gate Opening is your thing then this book (if it is still available) you should have. I like the rituals, the preparations and how you have all the orations to add to your own gate workings. The review is here Keys of Ocat.

20160412_101555

The Infernal Colopatiron by S. Connolly is another gate working and manifestation of the god self. I have pages marked, tons of loose papers from notes in it, and its highlighted to hell. A really good working for me.

20160412_101610

The Sabbattica compiled by Edgar Kerval is a book that has many authors contributing some of their occult knowledge. I was so excited wen this book came out. I mean I was stalking Nephilim Press website and waiting for the email saying it was now available. Three years later and I am still pissed about the last chapter. Here is the link Sabbattica.

20160412_101630

The Book of Abraxas by Michael Cecchetelli is one of my more interesting books. This book is full of rites, Christianize rights, Paganize actually considering the polytheism in Rome at the time. You have the rites for Angels, Yeshua, and honestly with some tweaking they can be used quite effectively. Looking through I have some lines crossed out, notes written with the changes I made. Just refreshing.

20160412_101647

The Book of Smokeless Fire by S. Ben Qayin is the shit. You will hurt yourself, and fuck some shit up with this book if you do not take precaution. The reason why it is in my prized collections is because of that fact. The meditations, the trances, just fucking amazing. Here is the link Book of Smokeless Fire.

20160412_101704

The Ast Ma Ion by Edgar Kerval is a visual masterpiece. With this Grimoire came colorful cards to match each chapter. These cards held so much for me to meditate with. Just the best addition to a grimoire. Here is the link Ast Ma Ion.

20160412_101722

Noax by Edgar Kerval is still untouched. I read the first 12 pages and then life happened. It’s in my collection because 1)  I plan on finishing it before the summer, and 2) it is from Edgar. His works are amazing, and this book from what I have read so far, is going to be another best from him.

The books with no links will have reviews written up about them before the summer is in full swing hopefully. I have a long list of reviews to get through, finish writing and to start, so bear with me. But I do hope you enjoyed this little list and the other reviews. Most of the books came from Nephilim Press. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

Wortcunning for Daemonolatry by S. Connolly

Posted in Occult, Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2016 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

20160323_090622It has taken me forever to get this review up but it is finally up so here we go…

This book is for those who have a love of gardening and a flair for alchemy. If you don’t like either, then leave this book to those who do.

So we have moved past the introduction and into the first chapter which is Working with Plants. It gives you the basic guidelines in how not to harm the plants when picking them, dealing with poisonous plants and the normal warnings. Now for me personally, I am allergic to 23 varieties of grass, 20 types of trees and life itself (recently), so yeah I have to severely modify what I can do and live through my mother who I am giving this book to when she starts her garden in a couple weeks.

Next is the Herbalist’s Tool & Pantry, it gives you a rundown of items that you need to purchase and store separate from your regular kitchen tools. The preparation for harvesting the plants are written in great detail and laid out easily in front of you.

Making Oils/Oleums Philtres, and the Teas, Elixirs, and Tinctures chapters are basically your meat and potatoes, in understanding how to make what you need without burning yourself or screwing up or even killing yourself. It states throughout the book not to drink poisonous mixes, so if you do and die, well you were warned dumb ass. Now my favorite method in this section is the salves and sprays, as this will be how I will do a lot of my mixes. Having that quick Daemonic spray for workings will be very handy in the upcoming months.

In Preparing Herbal Mixtures for Incense chapter, you can get down and dirty by hand-making your incense. I am lazy so I will be buying mine. Though I will charge them like I normally do.

In the Other Preparations chapter, you have the uses for bath salts, soaps and candle uses. This will be a good one to keep in the self. Having bath salts is perfect for when you want to purify before a ritual.

Plant Reference section, is pretty explanatory. It gives a very generous list (14 pp.) of magickal plants and what they can be used for. The same for the Bases section and Miscellany Magickal Recipes and Random Daemons.

The next three chapters are my favorite: Cursing Recipes, Death Daemonic Recipes and Divination Recipes. Ahhh, the love I have for these three keeps me warm at night.

The next few chapters Magickal Inks, Dukante Hierarchy Recipes, Goetic Hierarchy Recipes, and Grimoirium Verum Recipes gives you more than enough hands on experience to keep you busy for a few months trying them out.

Rituals sections are always a win/win in my book with, any Occult read I pick up. There are nine healthy rituals, love the number, that will keep you busy and build your energy up when working with charging your mixtures.

The second to last section, The Magickal Gardener, I skimmed through. I kill plants you heard me, not on purpose, but because I am so absolutely horrible in Gardening that Satan and Eury told me to take a seat. No lie, I suck ass at gardening, but my mother has a green thumb and can grow anything. This has all types of tips and hints in growing your garden so it is good to take heed and take notes.

Last section is a list of resources to grow your magickal library so you can have a basement like mines; that literally has books on tables, shelves, chairs, the washer and dryer and every square inch of floor. Actually if I could float, I would be able to go into my basement. Seriously, a lot of books.

This book is a wealth of information, filled with recipes, rituals, formulas, and tried and true favorites that I love. So get online, order a few few friends and enjoy your summer trying out some of the philtres and tinctures. Try not to cut a finger, blow up your alchemy set up, or poison you neighbor (well unless, you know). Enjoy the read and have fun. I know I am.

30 Days of Spirit Work prepared by S. Connolly

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , , , , on February 24, 2016 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I decided to order this little workbook because I need to focus and really get some one on one time with my deities, who I have been neglecting. I haven’t been able to sit down and properly pray, or meditate in close to 2 years now. What I do, I can’t really count that as something that has been helping me. I feel lost and I need to get the power back up and running. It is there, I just feel a disconnect.

So let’s get to reviewing this bad boy shall we.

This Magician’s Journal is 53 pages, its nice and thin, tall and wide. Gives you enough space so you can write in it without having to take up so much space. The book starts off with you labeling it, asking for your name, when you started it, and when you ended it,and a personal note section. It’s like other journals you may have encountered. I like this personal notes section because I can write down what I hope to achieve with this 30 day working in the beginning and then add what I learned afterward. The next three pages are the preparation write ups (one for the self, two for the prep) to further get that mindset ready for what you are about to embark on. Then a page for conjuration notes and a page for notes. Now we are getting into the working itself. So you have quiet a few pages to prep yourself before you are ready to begin a 30 day working. I would really take my time and utilize the pages that are given so you can attempt to plan out what your intended goal is to be. We all know that the Divine have their own agenda for us, so this can still be what our intent is actually going to be, or what we think it will be.

The Spirit section starts off with the a page for the spirit you are choosing to work with. There are places to draw the sigils, and if you have her Goetia workbook then you already know what it looks like. If not, there are places for the attributes of the spirit, their places, planteray options, herbs, keywords, a few note sections and a larger box so you can draw and map out your ritual. It is a useful four pages that will have you working in depth with your spirit. Again, here is where you will get to do some very good research on your chosen spirit. If you haven’t worked with your spirit in a while this is a great way to become reacquainted, and if this is your first time, this will help prep you for the working and give you a better understand of who you will be working with.

The Work begins by given you an idea for the layout in how to make the most of this journal and your time. On Day 1 you will focus on Sigil Meditation and it gives you some direction on how to go about this day. You also have a nice size area to write the findings of your meditation. Day 2 is the Offering Ritual and with some guidance and a large writing area you will make all your notes about the ritual that day. Day 3 is for the Tools/Seals and Patens and includes an area for drawing. Day 4 is where you will write about notes about any recipes you will be using. Day 5 is where the divination comes into play. Day 6 is ritual oil preparation and notes. Day 7 is the reflection on your first week. You will make modifications and then go one to the rest of the working the way you need to proceed. Days 8-30 are for you to do as you please with your personal working. The next few pages gives you more suggestions, tips and more areas to write in.

I like how this workbook is set up. I like to be a little more organized when it comes to my workings, and I have tons of notebooks and binders all over my basement. But this will be easier for me to catalog and to have for each being that I decide to work with. I can always look back on the workings from that particular spirit and then do it all over again and add more notes. Something that I tend to do a lot anyway. If you are super organized I suggest you get you a few. I did and I can see me ordering a lot more in the close future.

Good luck with your workings, and may they clear your mind and set you free.

Drawing Down Belial by S. Connolly

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , , , on June 4, 2014 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I have had a good weekend. Another book from my fav author came out. Drawing Down Belial by S. Connolly. I picked it up Friday and finished it Sunday. I have worked with Belial before and I was so excited about a book in which I could work with him a little further. So I couldn’t wait and purchased the Kindle version (I will be buying the physical copy as well).

 

This book is for Daemonic Divination, Ascension and Channeling. A Psychic/Mediums dream! How this book came to be is a very interesting read and makes you think about the interactions you have with people, and even in the beyond, things can always be better. Here you will have information on how to use the following divination methods: Prepared Spirit Boards, Pendulum Dowsing, Scrying, Reading Daemonic Sigils, Ascension (Astral) Work, and Dream Divination. This is enough to keep you busy for some months if not a couple of years getting into the nitty gritty. There are also quite a few more divination methods that are included and talked about as well.

 

You are (re)introduced to the four main types of Mediumship. I am blessed/cursed to have all four: Clairsentience (One that knows and can communicate it), Clairsentience (Knows what is happening in the future), Clairvoyant, and Clairaudience. From there you are told what devices will be better for each type, how your Zodiac sign relates to your abilities and tips and hints to help you make the most of your gift.

 

There is a section on prepping the Medium which is really important to know and perform. Just don’t read it and think you can skip it. I have come out of plenty of Ascensions and felt extremely dehydrated and easily dranked half a gallon of water. You have the basic Oleums, teas and recipes to help enhance your gift, including tinctures and ointments. There are some that I will like to use even though I can connect easily. You never know what else can aid you and I will be looking forward to using some of the recipes later this year.

 

There is a nice section on prepping your spirit board and even making one for the purpose you need it for. You have exercises, tips, and the most important section, How to Destroy the Board if you have something icky attaches itself to your board and tries to come through.  The Pendulum section I enjoy because I have a really good idea on a wood board I have that I can use for my workings. I am not big into Scrying, as I have seen things that scared the shit out of me, and the fact that I can pull things out of a session, and that isn’t cool. Me being a Scorpio, we are known as the most psychic, all Water signs really, but there are some good tips that will make me try again and just to help me relax and try a method that I would have just dismissed.  There are so many different scrying techniques that are shared and talked about that I won’t list them here. You have to find out for yourself J

 

The section on Reading Daemonic Sigils and Tarot Cards are another favorite. I have three Tarot decks (Necronomicon my fav, Thoth, and Angelic). I think I am pretty good with readings and I practice a lot. I also am gathering equipment to make Daemonic Sigil Chips (I have the Sigilum Daemonic which you should get). Channeling is talking about in depth and is a chapter you need to read and pay attention to. Channeling is not easy to do and you have to relax and believe in what you are doing and who yo are reaching. If not, your screwed. Ascension has to be my favorite way of communicating with the Daemonic because it’s like it is just us two or however many, because sometimes someone who needs to talk to me, more someone I need to talk to joins in and it’s like a relaxing conference meeting. Sometimes they are blunt, sometimes they are an ass lol, other times it is a serious conversation in which I need to heed what is being said to me and what I will be expecting in a few days or weeks or months.

 

The last section I’ll talk about is the Dream Communication section. I am not a good person to ask about dream translations. I couldn’t tell you what a buffalo appearing in a mustard suit means. You could be hungry or the buffalo can be like why are you eating me go Vegan. Again I don’t know. But you should try to decipher your dreams by using a dream dictionary, someone who is good in it, or try to figure it out yourself. Recently I have learned that when I have a dream about being chased by food, it means I am reaching a breaking point and I need to step back and relax. Pay attention so I won’t burn out.

 

Closing out the book are rituals for Ritual consecration, charging your divination devices, , connecting with the Daemonic Divine,  and the ritual to Draw Down Belial. You will also have info from the Daemons in this book as well, and if you have been in contact with them you will know that Leviathan is right. The one thing I have noticed when I have channeled Daemonic Divine is that our bodies are too confined so they won’t linger long. It has been plenty of times that Lilith or Hecate complained that I was short and didn’t have enough room for them, and how we humans lack space lol. So if they stay long it is most likely an important reason.

 

This is another book that has been added to my library and practices, and I do recommend anyone that is interested in Divination, Ascension, and Daemonic Contact to go and pick up this book. You will have a lot of recipes to try, exercises that will keep you busy, and rituals to play around with.

19 pages later

Posted in Occult with tags , , , , , , on December 23, 2013 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I am tired of writing lol. For now.

On Jan 20,2014 I will begin my very unique divinatory ascension working. It utilizes the twelve Zodiacs as the gates, Necronomicon seals, Kerry’s and current; while being guided through by divination Daemons and Gods of the Zodiac.

Yup only I can come up with some stuff like that. But it’s been almost two years in the making, and it is a lot to do: ascend, walk through gates and not lose yourself on a chaotic current.

Last night I spent, I think, eight hours writing the ritual up. Getting the gates organized and with the intent that I wanted to have auditory each. Choosing which divination Daemons should compliment me and Westwood actually work with me to go through the gates. And most importantly the God or Daemon that will be representing the Zodiac as its guardian, the ascension ritual that I modified, and the colorful odds act of my choosing to utilize a triangle structure within my normal workings as its normal just the 4 elements I call and that’s it. This time it’s more set up as a square our shape, triangle in the middle and a circular area where I will be sitting at, during automatic writings. When I was writing every thing down, I chuckled, because it reminded me of when I was in the lab. We come up with an experiment, what we would want to use, write down everything we needed, and list all the steps that we would go through to get it down, than performing it and making adjustments and then trying it again. So needless to say, I will be able to have 4-5 working days of divination ascension per sign with an hour for each working. More than enough time to tweak it before I moved on. Plus with down time scheduled into the work, gives me time to work with the Beings without feeling rushed or that I needed more time.

So 19 pages later and I’m finished with the ritual itself. I have the information of how I am working the gates, what the signs are,c wise being utilize for what, and where everything is placed. But it’s more than a list to do. It is a journal of what I will be doing the entire working. I know I won’t be ascending every day. I also know that everything those 20 odd days, there will be a few days where nothing need to be tweaked, because it went perfectly. So yes you will have an update. The week before I start it, and then Jan 21,2015 is when I will let you know how it went lol.

In between that you will read about other workings I’m going through and just my normal stuff.
