In this video i speak of union with opposites in order to break down our own false belief structures about ourselves and the world around us. This is a very important concept to understand, and is one of the basic meanings of the Sacred Marriage. This is a fundamental aspect of the Path, and one that needs to be discussed.

This video has my basic recommendation in regard to the daily magickal practice. I highly recommend some kind of meditation--in this case defined as focused attention, and some kind of energy work. Both of these are helpful as a regiment that serves as the bare essentials of a magical practice.

In this video, I show you how to make and use hot foot powder, which is a basic Hoodoo staple. This is used to drive unwanted people away. The basic ingredients include cayenne pepper, black pepper, red pepper, sulphur, and possibly some kind of carrier powder or dirt taken from a busy highway or railroad, especially at the edge of town. This can be used in a number of ways, such as throwing it at your target's door step, getting the enemy to walk through it, to place it in the person's shoes, through foot track magic, or even with bottle spells and candle spells (or a combination of both). This can, however, have lasting consequences for your enemy or chosen target.

In this video, i talk about secrecy and its role in the occult. I briefly go over initiation, evocation, the principle of energy conservation, and several other important principles and factors to consider in regard to whether or not the occultist should keep his or her work secret.

In this video, i discuss the three worlds as expressed in Heinrich Cornlelius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy or De Occulta Philosophia, and their relation to magic in the work of creating talismans, spirit evocation, and other types of practice. This was very much based in a knowledge of astrology, as well as the knowledge of the hidden occult sympathies, as found within various herbs, metals, minerals, and other such things in the elementary world. This would be used to construct a materia or vessel for the spiritus or divine outpouring from above in the celestial realm. Also discussed is the Picatrix and various other grimoires, such as the Veritable Key of Solomon and Sepher Raziel: Liber Salomonis.

In this video, I go over the classical magic worldview as found within the grimoiores, such as the Key of Solomon, Lemegeton, Heptameron, and Agrippa. It's important when studying classical magic of the Renaissance to have an understanding of a slightly different orientation and schema. In this way, modern magicians can try to understand these traditions as they were in themselves, without projecting our modern perspectives on to them as badly. While it is impossible to entirely generalize, I go over several key factors in the classical worldview that stands in contrast to the prevailing worldview in a lot of modern "magick."

In this video, I go over the basics of astrological talismans and their use in Renaissance magic and occultism, drawing from Heinrich Cornleius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" (aka "De Occulta Philosophia"), and also looking at earlier and similar classical source works, such as the Picatrix, the Key of Solomon, and other classical texts on this form of magic. The source text for this is Agrippa's 2nd book of the "De Occulta Philosophia," chapters 33-47, as well as from [Pseudo] Agrippa's "Fourth Book, or of Magical Ceremonies."

In this video, I show you how to find the name of your nativity angel or guardian angel from your birth chart, according the Henry Cornelius Agrippa's "De Occulta Philosophia" or "Three Books of Occult Philosophy." This is found in Book 3, chapters 22 and 26. This is part of a series of videos on classical Renaissance magic. Once the name of your nativity angel is obtained, then it can serve as a protector and guide. This is similar, but probably not the same, as the holy guardian angel mentioned by the Abramelin grimoire. Most magicians would distinguish between these two. This method can also be used to find the spirit of an auspicious astrological moment, which can be used in spirit evocation and the construction of an astrological talisman. Once again, this video is concerned with classical Renaissance magic.

In this video, I show you how to use magick squares to create sigils and to work with planetary magic for the creation of talismans and for spirit evocation, as well as other works. Generally, these planetary squares can be used as a link to the planets to help link and orient any other planetary workings toward the sphere you are trying to work with. This video is based on the description taken from Henry Cornelius Agrippa's second book of "De Occulta Philosophia" (aka "Three Books of Occult Philosophy").

In this video, i talk about some of the keys to harmonizing your magick operations for the construction of talisman and spirit evocation. Astrology was very important in Renaissance magic, and a natal chart was the first step before an operation. After this, one needs to operate in accordance with the sympathies that exist in nature in regard to the principle of correspondence. Beyond this, the microcosm or mage should be in harmony with the work that he or she should wish to realize. This is part of an ongoing series of videos on traditional Renaissance magick. Much more is to come.

Here is a link to Rufus Opus' "Seven Spheres": http://a.co/0F3o5xC

In this video, I talk about a simple approach to spirit evocation and working with the olympic spirits of the Arbatel. There is a very simmple devotional altar approach, one can utilize Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn rituals, or also Trithemius' "Art of Drawing Spirits into Crystals" as a more elaborate method that seems to produce good results. i also discuss the use of ritual offerings and the construction of talismans.

In this video, i talk about the primary source texts for old-school ceremonial magick with a focus on historical documents for the various practices, such as spirit evocation and the construction of talismans. One of the foundational texts of classical ceremonial magick is the Greek Magical Papyri or PGM. This is a collection of magic spells dating from around the 2nd century BCE until the 5th century CE. Another of the most important texts of the last 2,000 years is the Picatrix, which outlines the basics of electional astrology for the purpose of crafting astrological talismans. This is also a text that can be used for the timing of magick rituals of other kinds, such as spirit evocation, at the most auspicious time. Of course, Henry Cornelius Agrippa's "Three Books of Occult Philosophy" was vitally important, and was probably the most influential book of Renaissance magic. [Pseudo] Agrippa's "Fourth Book" is very important as well, as it includes several key texts that have made a big impact in the history of western occultism, such as the Heptameron, the Arbatel of Magic, and various works on Geomancy. These latter texts also serve as good examples of Renaissance magic, and serve as an example of various ceremonial magic practices during the Renaissance.

In this video, I discuss the integration and use of symbol systems in magick and western occultism. This is the predominant theory of modern magick and the basis of ritual construction. Once these concepts are understood, then it should be fairly easy to create your own rituals and to experiment with these various methods in your life. This is also seen by some as a method to construct a 2-way interface or language for communication with the Universe. Symbols are widely seen as the language of western occultism.
