Astral Musing: The Lilith Compact
Over the course of the last few months, I have spent a significant amount of time engaged in research. What is noteworthy is that this exploration resulted in a two part poetic adventure respectively entitled Sorceress of Silence and The Lilith Compact.The links will take you to a pair of shows I did this past weekend in which I narrated them, the second of which I focused predominantly on the second part of the poem. If you are going to listen to it, I highly suggest you do so in the pop out player. These pieces are highly significant for me, largely because I was limited to essentially an all-female cast. As a consequence, I had the thrill of connecting to and benefiting from some distinctly feminine guidance, insight and wisdom.
One such insight was exceptionally profound and ran rings through my mind for the better part of two days. What intensified this single insight was that, as a magical practitioner, I should have known. Like many on this path, I am very aware of sacred texts that contain knowledge whereby the magician can enter into a bargain with inorganic beings. Numerous practitioners throughout time have utilized this sacred knowledge and continue to do so, thanks largely to the internet, its importance only rivaled by the invention of the printing press which made the Reformation both possible and successful. Texts once hidden away are now readily available online and interest in them continues to grow. From Abremalin’s Sacred Magic, to the workings and writings of Dee and Kelly, to The Testament of Solomon and The Emerald Tablets – direct contact with/to non-physical, non-human beings is clearly outlined. Of importance to any spiritual seeker who is aware of the divine spark within them should be an understanding of the disposition of that very soul spark. Black magicians are claimed to be able to make “exchanges” for that soul spark inside of them, receiving power, wealth, fame – and a host of other desires – in this reality. With this in mind, I am going to state a hypothesis and then spend a short time with providing information to support it.
Hypothesis: The soul spark within many humans does not belong to the archons – the creator gods – but rather to us. It cannot be taken from us unless it is given freely.
It has been demonstrated that, throughout history, similar knowledge, awareness and insight has arrived when there is one common element – kundalini energy. The Buddhist’s, Hindus and others in the far east, the Gnostics and mystery schools of the middle east and the indigenous peoples of the Americas all were aware of and worked with this energy and arrived at similar observations about the influence and nature of inorganic beings and non-ordinary reality. Because the focus of roles throughout each of these systems was different, the wisdom they collected was often gained from need. For example, shamans in Meso-America would enter the other world in search of cures for specific ailments. It is said they converse directly with a representative of the particular plant(s) needed for the cure and then return with the knowledge and apply it. Another fascinating but not well known aspect of the shaman’s role was known as soul retrieval.
The belief is that, at times of extremely intense emotional or physical pain, a part of one’s soul spark can flee for protection and become lost or trapped. I spent a great deal of time using Alberto Villoldo’s exceptional guide Mending The Past and Healing the Future Through Soul Retrieval. I would highly suggest it to anybody who is interested in this type of “soul magic”. The sorcerer would seek out the lost soul fragment in the otherworld – normally as a result of displaying symptoms consistent with soul loss – and then return them to the owner, either in human form or through a construct. Entertaining the idea that there is a possibility this could actually take place, opens one up to other deeper insights that are echoed in philosophies around the globe.
There are a growing number who are, at least, considering the possibility that we have lived multiple lives. Grudgingly accepting this assertion, if one is a skeptic, then leads to contemplating how universal balance is maintained on a personal level through Karma. There are, additionally, schools of thought that contend that these past lives can remain a part of us through successive incarnations through physical or mental ailments. OCD, over eating, unexplained pain and even traumatic nightmares can be indicators of a past life interfering with the present incarnation. If one can entertain this possibility, then another layer is revealed and a further duty of the shaman is exposed.
Because of this belief of multiple lives, and that preceding ones could effect the present, the shaman would bring a part of the person’s consciousness to the Lower Worlds to the Chamber Of Wounds. Within, the soul consciousness watches “the first wound” inflicted on them, causing the physical or mental ailments that were “bleeding through” to the present incarnation, often through several lifetimes along the way. This was a form of counseling, where the person saw the wounding being done – through words and/or deeds – and accepted it, often forgiving those involved, which potentially freed them from the effects it had caused them.
A point of interest here is the journey one takes to reach the Chamber of Wounds. Descriptions vary but most involve navigating a river – in a boat made on the spot – before encountering the Gate Keeper to the Lower Worlds. Shamanic traditions contend that one is not always granted entry to the Lower Worlds and is told to return at another time. It was said that battles were taking place within those realities, causing instability. If granted entry, one steps through the gate directly to the location requested.
ENTER THE ARCHONS
Toltec sorcerers called them the flyers, created entities who continually interfered with humanity, both by psychic attachment and through energetic manipulation. The Gnostics observed that the archons worked in very similar ways and, through experiential reality, found methods to defend themselves against both their influence and their attacks. To add a further layer of intrigue, Carlos Castaneda suggests that there is a “foreign installation” within the mind of humanity that makes it susceptible to the manipulation of these flyers, like a type of virus. When this suggestion is further explained, the ramifications for those who have “given their hearts”, “dedicated their souls” or have freely given away that soul essence within them to any of these archons is mind numbing. He contends that their major avenue of direct interference uses religion as its engine.
If you doubt that observation, you must ask: Where else will you find humans capable of horrendous acts which any sane person with a working conscience would consider reprehensible? Not only that but using their particular religious belief to justify it. But there is another disturbing deception that they continue to perpetrate through their human puppets and that is of ownership of the individual, both body and soul. The so-called Abrahamic beliefs have, as core to their doctrine, an acknowledgment that all must believe that their god owns and controls their soul spark and determines its disposition after death. To weed out the heretics, one must give their life, efforts and/ or soul to their deity with the belief it will result in a rich eternity of “heaven”. Failure to submit, as claimed by Christianity, will result in an eternity of torment.
Here is the AHA moment for me….
While I was very aware that one could bargain with their soul spark for rewards in this reality, what was the difference between that and what these religions do? Considered closely and objectively, the only difference is that “believers” are banking on their rewards in the after life. Both the black magician and the religious believer enter into a type of cosmic contract with inorganic beings, whereby the soul spark, at death, is owned for a specified period.
To explore this a bit further, and provide additional support for the above observations, it is very helpful to view this through the lens of Gnostic thought. Why Gnosticism? As mentioned earlier, there is a common element of kundalini among those systems that had direct experience in accessing other realities. This clearly resulted in a vast amount of cosmic wisdom that arrived through experiential reality. The Gnostics were contemporaries of the early Christian movement and very often their target as well due to this acquired wisdom. This foundling religion had a cornerstone that the church was the ultimate authority over man, and despite lack of proof, all must have blind faith in God. The Gnostics viewed this blind faith component as evidence of the archons control over the minds of their followers.
Being the early astral travelers, spirit journeyers and remote viewers, it was essential that they learned how to work with and control their kundalini, an essential variable in the wisdom they gathered. This component is conspicuously absent from western religions but there are strict punishments listed in the Old Testament for witches, soothsayers, seers and the like. During the infamous Inquisition, it was not uncommon for mid-wives to be tried and burned alive as a witch, simply because they instinctively knew how to safely deliver babies. What the entities behind the formation of the Abrahamic religions knew was that each human contains psychic gifts and abilities that are innate and can be strengthened through effort and use. This would grant them access to wisdom that most often ran counter to the dogma being enforced, and often at the point of a sword. They sought both dominance and total obedience, traits which Castenada associates with the flyers.
So, even if they could access other realities and entities, could observations made by the Gnostics really pose a threat to the Abrahamic beliefs? Quite simply…. YES. To be more precise, the nature of our soul essence and its origin posed a grave threat, largely because it elevated man’s soul to that of being above the gods. Not only that but possessing this knowledge was one of their most potent weapons, which they could use to defeat the archons essentially on their own turf. They believed, and is echoed in Hermetic Philosophy, that there was single entity from which all creation was conceived. In the realm of the Divine, which they referred to as the Pleroma, The ALL created a number of entities to enact its desires of creation, including a group of beings known as the aeons, who were created in male/female pairs. The most well-known is called Sophia, and they believed that, without joining with her cosmic twin, she created a psychopathic androgynous entity called Yaldabaoth or the Demiurge. Similar to the story of Gaia, she was allegedly imprisoned in the shell of earth by the children she created.
While interesting, there is one other element that is the crux. The Gnostics believed that our great soul spark was made in the Pleroma which, essentially and cosmically, means we are first generation emanations of The ALL, while the archons posing as gods, are relative – compared to us – newcomers. They were created for the purpose of creation and administration, it was claimed, without a past, while our souls have existed for far longer in an ongoing series of events with a goal of rejoining with “that from which we came from”. They further claimed that the archons were not capable of evolving spiritually, like humans, and harbored a jealousy of that. It cannot be denied that those religions most prevalent in the west rely on enforcing how weak or sinful we are, existing at the whim of the respective god, even making preposterous statements, here and here, claiming “god’s judgment” when a calamity or tragedy occurs. These evangelists have an enormous audience base and were instilling little more than superstitious beliefs and reinforcing the essential “fear of god’s wrath” component of their doctrine.
A common belief among religious devotees is that their particular holy text contains answers to anything they need to know about. If something can’t be found, there are a variety of explanations why, including the ever-popular “god works in mysterious ways”. There is no coincidence between the birth of Catholicism and humanity’s entry into the Dark Ages. For over a thousand years, scientific discovery progressed at a snail’s pace, with new discoveries deemed to be heresy if they did not reinforce the official policy. It can’t be denied that this iron fist ensured that the followers did not involve anything but religion for their answers. Is there any reason why this would be any type of a threat to these great gods, that can be found the Bible, for example? YES…. Check this out:
6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
This clearly reinforces not only one of their greatest fears – if humanity united as one, nothing they attempt to do will fail – but also that their interference would be on a mental level, influencing speech and the ability to understand it. The following echoes a very similar acknowledgment and fear:
Then the LORD God said, “Look, the human beings have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!”
This may well refer to the tree located in Eden but its deeper meaning is found in systems like the qabala that have the “tree of life” as central to their belief. Is it possible that these archons harbored a fear that we would discover the true nature of the cosmos and creation, and consequently us? Is it possible, as some contend, that the reality of form was created for the benefit of growth to the soul spark within us… and not for the god’s benefit?
The Gnostic disciples were taught about and experienced these archons, and devised potent weapons which not only included mantras and mudras (hand movements) but especially the recall of the birth of the archons, when they felt another consciousness trying to invade their mind. Buddhists in the far east discovered that learning how to silence one’s mind to all thought also sent the intruding thoughts and source packing.
Before a summation, there is one last belief that must be addressed because it may well play an integral part in understanding just how deeply some of these archons – demons, jinn, daeva – can actually enter and control a human host. The belief is that there are some humans born without a soul spark. They have the spirit or etheric energy but essentially are missing a soul and it is claimed some archons interact directly on our 3D plane using these “soulless beings” essentially as suits. Given your awareness of the complexity of creation, does this belief have a possibility of being realistic? If this reality was indeed designed for our spiritual growth and development, involving exposure to adversity, challenge and obstacles, it stands to reason that some entities must inevitably play the role of villain. Are they acting on their own or are they being directed by inorganic beings?
IN A NUTSHELL
I do not seek to draw conclusions for you, not do I force my conclusions on anybody. Based on research and insight, however, I contend that the “creator gods” do not own us any more than a house’s architect, painter or electrician owns the tenants who move in. While I question the veracity of much of the Urantia Book, I will agree it paints a reasonably cogent picture of the extremely complex requirements pertaining to the continued maintenance and administration of our 3D reality, earth being our major concern. The Gnostics add a further note of sobriety for consideration in the form of energy harvesting and predation – the act of being a predator. The very existence of these archons, some sects claimed, was entirely dependent on humans for energetic nourishment. If the belief in human “energy vampires” has merit, then it stands to reason that inorganic beings have this ability as well. To add more confusion – or perhaps clarity – it is essential to listen closely to those who you feel are true sources of light. Alchemist Jim Self, among others, claims that a type of energetic corruption has occurred, impacting directly on our 3D reality. The creator gods began creating using their own energy – “breath of life” – instead of from Source. It is claimed they refused when told to stop and were cut off from being able to utilize Divine Source energy. An energetic feedback loop was then created in which humans became the food source for these entities, who in turn would control events that would keep them well-supplied with resulting human energy.
Once again, I am not pushing anything on anybody. My position, all told, is that I own my soul spark and body. Additionally, we each (spiritually aware beings) determine our destination after the transition of death. While the gods cannot take the soul spark by force, I believe that, similar to a black magician’s agreement, it can be given to them willingly. Before working on this last pair of poems, I had never made the connection between the two methods, which may have different causes, but the effect is undoubtedly the same. Both parties have made sacred and binding agreements, giving their deity all rights to the soul spark after death.
As a magical practitioner, I should have made the connection by noting the similarities… but I didn’t until I took the Sorceress of Silence trip with “the girls”. It showed me that those entities who are oriented to the divine feminine, like those I worked with in penning these poetic journeys, have both unique wisdom as well as insight.
I am compelled to address one final point of interest and perhaps even concern. Like many in my generation, and the preceding ones, I was raised in a religious home, where I was taught that only their beliefs were “true”, among many other questionable beliefs. As one who is a “recovered Christian”, I have observed that those who have accepted the “offer of salvation” did so as a result of either family pressure or a need arose for some means of support during a difficult time. Often, as in my case, this event transpired at an age when I did not fully understand what I was getting myself into. As a result of this latest collaboration with “the girls”, I became aware that I had never annulled that contract made in prayer as a young child. They kindly provided me with an answer and ritual, detailed below.
It can be as complex as calling in the Watchtowers to witness your declaration or as simple as lighting a candle and asking a guide or favorite angel to stand in as a cosmic witness. It is advisable to spend some time beforehand to detail your “declaration of independence” and don’t be discouraged about having to write it down and then read it aloud, as opposed to simply speaking from the “heart” of your being. This can be a bit unsettling so having it written down ensures that your annulment of the contract is complete. Once you have read it aloud, you may wish to request some assistance in the removal of energetic etheric chords from the archons to you. Over time, my experience has shown me that these can slowly erode if not enough energetic intent is placed on them but can still remain as attachments all the same. An important consideration is that whoever is chosen also is requested to provide healing energy to the point of contact.
As a final suggested step, consider a slightly salted warm bath. Address the Earth Mother as it is filling and request to use her water essence to remove all negative energy, entities, vibrations or attachments that are no longer in your best interest. On completion, once again address the Earth Mother and thank her for allowing you to use her essence to cleanse. Ask that she accept the energy removed by the bath and transmute it to a form which she can utilize.
For a final time, I do not force my observations or insights on you. It is just a piece of the whole truth like a sliver of pie. To some, it will not resonate as truth at all, echoing the Hermeticist Principle of Polarity, which objectifies, “all truths are but half truths”. I would suggest also that it is imperative we alter our paradigms, as new information, awareness or insight becomes available. It would not be reasonable to pick up a year old flyer from the bottom of your closet, to your favorite grocery store, and expect the same specials to be on sale. Similarly, we do ourselves a great service when our viewpoints change to reflect new data received. Many can sense that something quite extraordinary is about to take place and Thoth provides some fascinating predictions and encouragement in Tablet XII, called The Key of Prophecy, provided below in conclusion.
“Aye, the children of men shall progress
onward and upward to the great goal.
Children of Light shall they become.
Flame of the flame shall their Souls ever be.
Knowledge and wisdom shall be man’s
in the great age for he shall approach the eternal flame,
the Source of all wisdom,
the place of beginning,
that is yet One with the end of all things.
Aye, in a time that is yet unborn,
all shall be One and One shall be All.
Man, a perfect flame of this Cosmos,
shall move forward to a place in the stars.
Aye, shall move even from out of this space-time
into another beyond the stars.”
Namaste, Nick xxxxx
