Book Reviews

This past month I have been dropping a book review video every day of the month, and I have a few more to do. Here is the latest video so you can backtrack :Occult reference books.

What I do and have noticed actually, is that people read the same fucking books and they read them because everyone else does, but never did shit with the book. At least I went through majority of my books or have them scheduled to be performed in the next few months.

I will keep up with the book review videos since I got some many down this month. I have read majority of these books years ago, and I have so many that I want to get up and out. Even moving into the next month I will be dropping more videos maybe 2 times a week.

All in all, I really hate that phrase lol, I am feeling good in sharing the books that  I love and like with others. I tend to keep it pretty true to form with my colorful language in tack lol. I mean I really am not changing for anyone. I share what I love with people who want to listen, can’t get any better than that.

Daughter’s of Lilith

Posted in Important Posts with tags , , , , , on 05/06/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

On FB, me sister’s group is back active again. I changed the format of how I was doing classes, and decided to do them bi monthly. It gives people time to plan out what they are doing and to fit the working into their schedule. What I like this time is that you can schedule your posts, and man tell me this isn’t the best thing.

Since people are busy, myself included, I am not always on at the same time and I may miss a day if I am running classes on FB. Mainly because I severely limited my FB and only post dumb shit on my pages. I do the bulk of my work on personal temple sites, in my personal working on other groups. So when I scheduled the post for the month of May, I was able to do all 31 days. We are working with Morrighan in her capacity of being similar to Lilith, and then learning about the Morrighan herself and her three sides.

So when someone comments I can check and interact where ever I am at. Instead of trying to remember to post. My schedule is full and at any time, I can have 6-11 day workings showing up from my orders that I participate in. SO I have almost all my workings for the year already schedules, and any other opportunities that pop up. I can actually fit them in knowing when I have time and what month is light.

I am loving the way the ladies are participating when they can. It is more about them getting exposed to different goddesses, then it is to do every day and respond. I mean this is an occult study group on fb, and why would I charge for that. I would charge on my own website because I can regulate it better. As we all know that fb like to deactivate or put them in jail because people get butt hurt. So to avoid them feeling pressured this is a better alternative. When they are ready to get deeper and commit then the learning moves off of FB and I get deeper.

July is when the next monthly working is going to start. I have to check my schedule to see which Goddess we agreed on. But I love it, because if I haven’t worked with that Dark Goddess before, than that is a treat for me as well.

Workings and Wakings: Is there a difference?

Posted in Rituals and Workings with tags , , , , , on 04/02/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

Over the past few years I have just personally noticed that people say that they don’t do path workings or walkings , and that they always just work with their Deity of choice. And it got me thinking, what is the real difference? Is there a difference? Or is this just word wording that we use just for the fuck of it?

So this is what Working with a Deity and Walking with a Deity means to me. *MY OPINION SO DON’T GET YOUR DAMN PANTIES IN A BUNCH*

Working with a Deity is what I do on a daily basis with the House of Baal. It is what I do when I connect with my Patron and Matron, when I work with other Deity’s and during rituals/rites. It is what I do when I meditate to them, when I celebrate them.

When I walk with them, I get a deeper connection to them,  with them, and definitely for them. I have spent a month walking with Hecate, going through shadow working with her, and really learning myself. I have done walkings with the House of Baal for 30 days in learning more and more about the Elder Daemons and how I can connect to them and how we work together. I have spent 4 years, soon to be 5, walking with the Goetia Demons. Every time I walk with them, I learn something new, I am exposed to new methods, I have a break through, or I am broken down for better understanding. I will be doing a 2 month Walking with my Mother, Lilith later on this year as well.

I feel both are very important when you are on a spiritual path and when you worship to, work with, pay homage to, or whatever you want to call it that you do in interacting with your Pantheon; walking with them will give you a greater insight into the relationship that you share with them. Without it I feel that you are missing a key component that can help improve your workings as an individual and a group if you do majority of your workings with your coven or group of people or friends.

Doing both, or one or the other, is good. I just suggest if you haven’t done a long working with one Deity that maybe you try it out and see how you like it. If you don’t care for it, no harm no fowl. Just continue what you are doing.

It never hurts to try new things.

 

Thaumiel; The Dark Divided Ones by S. Ben Qayin

I got my copy of this book yesterday. I was too excited to open it and begin reading it. And yes I finished it the same day. The cover is very glossy and it has some nice wight to it, 79 pages (85 including the authors info and last words and some blank pages for note taking, well I use them for note taking).

Inside this softback book you have some gorgeous pictures, in depth illustrations, and beautiful symbols. The pictures in this book are in color and you know what, I appreciate that. Black and white is fine and it is classic, but there is nothing like color images assaulting the senses you know.

You have an introduction chapter, eight chapters and a final word chapter separate form the author’s final words. What I really like is that this bad boy is in a series of 11 books. So what you are investing in, is an extremely in depth systematic working of the Tree of Death. I know I live for these types of books, because I get my whole magical life with them. I get put through the ringers and when you you talk about working with Satan and Moloch, you better bring your A game. You need to me mentally, physically and spiritually ready and aware before diving into this series of works. This, in my opinion, is for seasoned magicians who have went through being knocked on their asses a few times. For those who want to take their knowledge and working with the Tree of Death to the next level. This is not for those who think they can conquer everything because they been doing this for 5 years. No, when you go into this with an ego of I know I can conquer everything and not being humble, trust me they know you. They will fuck you up for GP, and you will come out missing a part of your mind. Play around with real work if you want to . This is deep shit.

This book draws from information that you can find in the Keys of Solomon. Which means yes this incorporates Solomon Ceremonial Magick but with a heavy twist, and seasoned with Chaos Magick.

There is this one sentence that stood out to me. It is on pg 40, first paragraph and it says “…I believe that when working the pentacle (point facing north/up…) is implemented to give energy and honor Other Gods…instead [the pentagram is facing downward] directs power to he black magician and honors them as their own free God.” I like this clarification of what the points on the pentagram mean. Everyone has their own way of interpreting it. But going into any working it would be nice to have a found view of the pentagram either point up or horns up.

This book takes you into the void extinguishing your light and replacing it with darkness. Becoming the Black Magician that you are setting out to be with this working. This working requires your blood (so if you can’t stand the site of blood or you get faint, you may just want to skip this book all together), a hefty amount of salt, and the ability for you to remain calm and open when going through these gates.

You didn’t think you were going to continue reading my reviews did you? Naw, I got something good for you.

26 Occult Books I want to Read this year

I decided to get back on my reading challenges. One of my friends added me to a group she created called 52 books, and I used that as my challenge for how many books I will read for the Goodreads challenge. I want to do this as a minimum. I have over 6,000 books in various formats that I want to get through. I mean I have a lot of shit to read lol. But this year I have 26 occult works that I really want to get through. When I mean Occult, I mean grimoires, Dark Art workings, nonfiction, Eastern Disciplines, all the New Age shit and what not.  Here is my list. Now I have a lot more, but there are just the ones that I want to start or reread, or even finish this year.
