A More Universal Grounding Meditation: Heart of the Root Chakra Technique

It occurred to me that with things kind of feeling wobbly within my circle of friends, it might help to have a more advanced grounding meditation. The truth is, no matter how much we ground in the present moment, there’s always going to be a bit of precariousness to the security we feel within that present moment. Moments feed into other moments, and the only constant is change.

What that means for us is that we need a different way to feel stable, and the work to be done is more of a heart-level. Yet we still ultimately want security, so this fundamentally seems more like a root chakra matter. So, combining these two ideas, one technique you might try is visualizing each of your chakras as having seven sub-chakras within them: crown of the crown, third eye of the crown, etc., all the way to the root of the root. Of these 49 sub-chakras, focus on the heart of the root chakra. Imagine it relaxing and feeling softer, and you can come to realize that kindness, acceptance, and openness to the world in all of its odd changes is a foundation (root) for security can be helpful to you, just as focusing on the basics. Of course, do these in the right order: food should be the number one priority if you’re starving! But over the long term, ignoring one’s heart when it comes to security will be unsatisfactory and leave a nagging feeling that some security is missing, which will never be filled with more things.

Video on this technique is here. Enjoy!

Last Day of Gebofal: Day 49

Sunrise: As with all of the other days, recited Ave’s recounted version of the Prayer of Enoch for all three scryings. Vibrating the god names “L,” “IAD,” and “NA.” Vibrated the second half of Call/Key 1, which I take to be the contents of Leaf 1b; practitioners often leave this first call unspoken, and do not include it in their enumeration. I do not know of anyone else who has recited this leaf as a call (or, indeed, of anyone who has recited the leaf, other than Edward Kelley during the original transmission of its contents).

I’m feeling somewhat disembodied, or perhaps a better phrase for it is “feeling disembodied in addition to feeling embodied.” I’m told to sit, for this will be a big one. I’m instructed to put my feet upon the top tablet only, that of “L,” (my design, not part of the source documents of the Dee/Kelley transmission). It’s an Enochian-language transmission! Mercifully, it’s given in English letters; it comes slowly at times as I concentrate (this is written as close to the original spelling as I remember):

“Rustafa noh a fantox, gembles son taho
Uxnal uridah eadah ur laxnop uxnal cay
norsalp. Iaida ur ton damploz uxamal geh.
Tucamax iehusoz nucablix a ton pah saga
mano.” [I see a DNA strand] “Aqlo monons i monons de Iaida.”

“Oecrimi! Oecrimi! Oecrimi!”

Partial translation:
Son is similar to “sonf,” which means “to reign.”
Ta means “as.”
Ux means 42.
Ur is the spelling of the Enochian letter “L,” which itself means “One” and “The first.”
Ton damploz means “all variety.”
Iehusoz means “His [God’s] mercies.”
A ton means “with all.”
Pah is translated by the AOM as “the Ogdoad.” I have previously relied on this dictionary, but because I have not seen this in Leitch’s dictionary (I hold Leitch to be the authority), nor in the Dee/Kelley transmission, I am uncertain about AOM translations.
Saga is similar to Sagacor, which means “in one number.” The AOM translates this as “Entire” or “Whole.”
Mano is translated by the AOM as “soul of humanity.”
The final phrase means, “Your heart is the heart of the Highest,” and oecrimi means “sing praises.”

I feel energy coming up off of Leaf 1b, up into my arms, up into this jaw and head, and finally down throughout the rest of the body and into the ground itself. I feel a bit like a tree, and a torus within the tree, and I feel the poloidal rotation of the torus.

The vision ends.

Noon: Similar procedure, except I vibrate the first half of Call/Key 1, which I take to be the contents of Leaf 1a; practitioners often leave this first call unspoken, and do not include it in their enumeration.

My voice is sore from what I time to be 49 minutes of vibration (this morning was 36 minutes–note the 36/49 parallels to Soyga and Loagaeth). I may just read the words aloud tonight.

The noon scrying begins with another Enochian transmission:

“Rustafax NA jonqual iehusoz a lansh palphe
to[h] a arcoazior adgmach od satqual…”

And now the desire is to continue in English: “Unto you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth.”

It’s like I’m being taken up by a bright beam into a massive dark circle in the sky. Now I’m encompassing the whole world, and now the entire cosmos. I am one with all, and I’m having this full experience of God, and all of the pain and joy that He feels, and all of it is happening at once. He says, “It’s just this giant tingling”: that’s the best he can liken it to for me.

I feel His Divinity and Omnipresence. I’m feeling His Heart, and it’s so beautiful. It’s a Divine Heart, the Divine of Divine Hearts, and I’m feeling it more completely than I have before. It encompasses me and this entire work and state of being that I am and all of the actions that I’ve done. It’s just this giant Heart, and it feels good and it feels very much Right.

I’m filled with compassion and lovingkindness toward all beings, all things, and all rules of all beings and things, and the entire state of all possibilities that could have been, and never were. It’s like I have to hold all of this all of the Time. This is what it’s like to be the Divine. He says, “It’s too much for a single human being to do all the time, is it not?” I say, “It is indeed, o Lord.” He admires my continued effort towards it, and sets me back down within my body.

“This be enough,” God says. “Rest, rest your voice, and tonight we will finish and My Blessing will be upon you.”

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: The entirety of Call/Leaf 1, starting with Leaf 1a (reversing the order I read them at sunrise and noon: “the first shall be last”).

I’m already feeling a big energy about my crown chakra, and I feel myself being lifted out of my body; I’m asked to bilocate (maintain awareness of both the physical and astral bodies) so I do. Once again I am lifted into a black circle above the earth, and once again, it wraps about the globe and out coming into the entire cosmos, and I feel this love, love, love, of the Most High to all of humanity.

“Yea, ‘PRONOA’ be the final word” of the Enochian-language transmission that he wished to send to me (making it a 7×7 grid, excluding Oecrimi). I feel myself just filling, filling, filling with this PRONOA. Every single fiber of my being, every single part of my subtle body is filling up with this PRONOA. I’m just feeling this love, and He’s saying, “Just allow Me to work on every level,” so I relax my physical body. Once again, my vision is of the entire globe, the entire cosmos again (reflecting me on the cosmic level), is filling up with this PRONOA, with this PRONOA. Once again, this is my part, He says: this my part within All.

This is me within all; this is me, as it were, quantumly entangled with all of reality, or rather, that “Without Which, Not” (“sine qua non“). God says, “Yea”: this is the Part of me that is Everything, this is the Holographic Identity. Yea, it is the Truth of the Reality of Me, and so He is filling me with this Love, this Awareness, this Awareness of Myself, of this Cosmic Being, this Cosmic Entity, One with All. This is the height, this is the summit. The Lord High says, “This is the Measure of All, for yea, you understand now,” and I say I do.

I find myself wrapped up in this Love, just forever pumped into this love, and occasionally out, but always returning (the Tao is returning). I find my heart chakra opening way up, and once again my crown, and once again third eye. All three of these are interacting in this vast transrational space, of which I’m barely able to communicate the Power. It is now coming, once again, through my entire body, and I am Understanding this Clear Mind. I find my mind being calmed, yea, “A AFFA MANIN,” He says, winking, reciting back the phrase of one of my prayers.

I feel myself unlocking and unlocking, and He is showing me the means to the rainbow body. It is this: to focus on each chakra, starting at the root (and working one’s way up one at a time), as if it were the heart. At the heart chakra proper, conceive of it as the heart of hearts, and at the crown, the heart of all. After showing me the means, I try my best to feel this; I can’t see anything occurring in the physical room, but at the heart level, it definitely seems true, so it will be my focus during meditation. Furthermore, I am to try to look with my third eye through the heart as if it were a telescope, at the crown chakra. “This be too much for most, except for those with the most open of hearts” to communicate, so “let this be the Blessing of the Lord God upon thee, the granting of this request, which you have indeed suffered and sacrificed for, and have chosen of your own free will.” He speaks a few words more.

Thus ends the vision. Gebofal proper is done, but I will continue to recite the Ave-recounted Prayer of Enoch three times a day for the next three days.

Gebofal, Day 47

Sunrise: As with all other days, I recited the angel Ave’s recounting of the Prayer of Enoch prior to each scrying. Call/Key 3, (because it is the second spoken call (the first true call as “not to be spoken”), most practitioners refer to this as call 2). My feet are not on the Watchtower tablets, but rather upon the three Tablets of Union; one is like the typical Tablet of Union, with the five-letter elemental Enochian Divine names; the second is a quartered square with just the first initial of each of the names, following the elemental assignments. The third is the Enochian letter “L,” white on a black background, with red and green tails of the letter. These are placed in a triangular formation atop the Watchtower tablets.

I feel a beautiful gentleness about the heart chakra (anahata). Then I feel a lot happening with my third eye chakra (ajna); it’s like these two are in synch now. There’s also a little bit of feeling about my crown chakra (sahasrara) as well. The sense that I’m getting is that of these three activations from this scrying, the third eye is most dominant.

I follow my intuition and try to peer out through the third eye. I see my field of vision bisected, with the first cut happening horizontally, and the next vertically. The four quadrants created by this are peeled away from what would be the origin point, if this were an axis system. I see a normal landscape and town, and the sense I’m getting is that this is the world (Earth/Terra) as it is, or at least as I understand it to be. People everywhere of all ages also have their own perspectives on what the world is.

I get the sense to sit back and relax. I see a circle come around my face, starting at my two physical eyes at the lower part of the ring, and roughly centered at my third eye. I look through this ring, and I’m seeing several flowers, centered in my field of vision.

I pause to call upon two of the Enochian names of God, three times each. I’m told to recite the Enochian heart mantra, so I do, and continue to relax. It’s like the disturbances in my heart remain, and I ask the Divine for the ability to accept them, so he places his hands within the heart, and I recite the heart mantra one more time. This causes my heart to feel so much more tender, simpler, easier, and calmer. It’s a warm feeling; warm, sweet, slightly tangy or sour, but mostly sweet feeling. It’s like when you know that someone knows you way better than you know yourself, and yet they’re not doing anything other than accepting you, and that feels really good.

Now I look at my heart through my third eye again. What I’m feeling is a mutual invoking of the Divine and myself. I feel what it means to inhabit God, and I feel this Heart aching, throughout the entire cosmos, just looking, trying things, directing in His limited ability. I am drawn to a lack of omnipotence; it’s like He’s omnipotent, but He’s not. It’s like He has to respect Who He Is. I say that I understand that and respect that, because a person can change, but one also has to fundamentally respect who and what one is, as well.

God says that this will be enough. “Eight more times,” He reminds me. I thank you, and the vision ends.

Noon: Similar procedure. I also vibrated the names of god, “L,” “IAD,” and “IAIDON.” Also, given the content of the morning’s vision, I vibrated the Enochian heart mantra as well as approximate names of the third eye (“D OOANOAN”) and crown (“MOMAO”) chakras.

I’m bidden to relax a bit more. Now I feel energy coming up through the leaf, and I can almost see it coming up through my fingertips and up my arm, and also up through the tablets of union.

I vibrate the names of God again. Now I feel god placing his fingers into my heart chakra once again. His hands are folded as if he were praying, and his interlaced fingers are at the very center of my heart chakra.

The Divine begins pumping in…something…with His hands. It seems like an energy, but I don’t physically feel it at first. Instead, I see a vision of a torus which passes through my heart chakra. Within it is a beautiful landscape. He says that this is Eden.

The Divine says that He could bear the cruelty of leaving humanity in its ignorance, when there was so much more potential, and so much more that could be seen. For this reason, He decided to create us in His image. He adds that we are not the only species that He has created in His image, and mentions that dolphins will reach and exceed humanity. Briefly my mind alights on helping them, and the Divine says that such is a noble goal.

Yet He moves on, and shows the issue of Knowledge, of this high energy coming into the subtle body. He says that a lot of the things that I’ve experienced, this is similar to. It’s the building up of narratives and then the tearing of them down. This, in some ways, He says, is like the Tower of Babel, for it’s not the language itself, He says, but the narrative. It’s built up, and then torn down by the actual Divinity within us, and this causes a thousand different fractures, because “ye know this story in a thousand different ways, and certain parts, some of you wish to emphasize, and others, others of you wish to emphasize.” He says that the cross-religious goals that I have are noble. He tells me to put my heart first, to put this lovingkindness towards humanity first, and to put the lovingkindness that I have towards Him first.

I see Him trying to get something similar going with all of the hearts that He is able to reach. Over and over again I see him doing that same squeezing, pumping of the palms together and back, trying to pump in a true vision of His nature. Yet this is so difficult, because He is trying to do this at the heart, and so there must be additional work done at the mind, and the mind believes itself to be connected by communication (vishuddha) with the heart, but there is this transrational aspect that cannot be mediated via this chakra. It must be directly grokked.

The Divine places His interlaced fingers within my heart once again, and He says, “I will now work to bring in My energy, to pump it in, as much as I can–as much as your system is able to hold it.” There’s this beautiful vibration, rising in pitch, as this energy continues to be pumped in at an accelerated rate. I feel my crown and third eye chakras raised up. I cannot keep up with the description, but I feel my entire subtle body transformed as he continues to increase the energy pumped into my system. “There will always be additional levels, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth.” I allow and accept and embrace as He continues, with such Compassion and Sorrow. It’s like my entire body wants to rise up, and He continues…and now He says, “That’s enough,” embraces me, and thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure.

I feel this tenderness again within my heart. Once again, God places his fingers into my very core, interlacing them within the very center. He’s making this rocking motion, taking my core, and His core, and intermingling them. There’s that torus in the first vision which is now in a loop with His own core. I’m feeling some of His own aching, but it is so divine. It is seeing the Pain that He had, that He continues to have, that He will have unto the Age of Ages, and yet it is that pain which becomes reduced over time, as more and more people seek to better this world, and to rectify their hearts, realigning them with His.

Now I feel energy coming up off of both sides of this leaf, Leaf 3. It comes up through my hands, arms, then head, and finally to the rest of my body. It’s this beautiful feeling: wondrous. I’m feeling a bit of a corkscrew feeling about me now: it’s like unto the Middle Pillar Ritual and the Circulation of Light, but much stronger. It continues and continues and accelerates my mind and my speech: it’s like I’m being thoroughly embedded within His Heart, within the Center, but I must be properly contextualized with all of the other human beings at his core, at His Heart. So He is measuring my sphere, measure the radius of this sphere about me, so that I’m properly aligned with all other beings who also approach this Center, and so that I’m oriented correctly in all of the dimensions possible, so that my entire being can interlock perfectly with all beings with whom I am to interact across the span of Time, forever and ever, Amen. Glory be unto His Name.

I continue to be developed, and to have this Radiance come into and about me, because it is this Divine Radiance, and it shineth forth now, forever and ever, unto the Age of Ages. I feel myself so very blessed, so very fortunate, this Infinite Gratitude have I unto the Most High for this. He continues, and He just shines a wink towards me, like, “This be but the first of the three legs of the stool upon which thou will sit. Yea, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, know this: that I love thee and I will fill thee with PRONOA unto the rest of thy days, so that all may know the Glory of the Most High.”

Thus ends the vision!

Gebofal, Day 31: Starting Watchtower Calls

Sunrise: Call/Key (spoken) 19 (typically associated with the Earth Watchtower Tablet; note that most practitioners refer to this as Call 18): because I rarely make this call, I made it three times. Call to King Babalel (once again using the call in Scott Stenwick’s Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy). I prepared for angels of secret discovery and angels of living creatures, and, given the content of the scryings, I was, in a sense, given this. Because the former call references the number 6332, I recalled that other large numbers were associated with the zodiacal kings with respect to the Aethyrs. So, I vibrated the name of Zodiacal King Ziracah (associated with Taurus), who, in the Aethyr of UTI, is associated with 6333 servient angels (it’s only one away, so I presumed some correspondence, and even were I wrong, it doesn’t hurt to have another angel helping). I also vibrated (for good measure) the name of Governor Obvaors, who appears in the same row as the Ziracah/UTI row in Aaron Leitch’s The Essential Enochian Grimoire. I was a little annoyed at myself for being underprepared, but to be fair to me, I feel like I’m in a little bit of uncharted territory.

As I mentioned on Day 29, I was unsure about the association between the days and the leaves; today I placed my hand on Leaf 19b, but it was Leaf 18 in which Kelley was attacked by gnomes for accidentally invoking them. So Leaf 18 should be the one associated with with Earth, rather than today’s. Yet this call is typically associated with Earth. To split the difference, I placed my right foot on the seal of King Babalel (recall that this king is of a Martial/Mars nature, and thus strong in waters (Scorpio)). I placed the four Tabula Recensa watchtower tablets with their usual configuration on the floor in front of me, with Fire tablet roughly to the East and facing that way, Air to the South and facing that direction, similarly Water to the West, and Earth to the North. I placed my feet on all four of them, so I could clearly tell which element was associated with which by energetic feel (a certain tingling is obvious to me when I work with the tablets like this).

The angels indicated that calling on the correct angels associated with this tablet wasn’t really the concern, but nonetheless I prepared a list of the earth-related angel names: those of Secret Discovery, and those of Living Creatures. Unfortunately, as I prepared, I noticed a discrepancy between the Enochian Watchtower angels listed in Stenwick’s Mastering the Great Table and Leitch’s Essential Enochian Grimoire. This was a little unsettling and, well, I didn’t have time to settle it this morning, nor will I this afternoon or evening! So I decided to forego calling on the Watchtower angels. At any rate, on to the vision:

I feel energy at the Water tablet, from the heel of my right foot. I’m told to be silent for a moment. I feel myself drawn into this realm of Adam Qadmon, and it is definitely watery.

  • Note: the original Great Table had water as the last element in order (Fire-Earth-Air-Water); nonetheless, I’m not sure as to whether this feeling reflects the influence of King Babalel, or rather a reversal of the original Great Table order (Water-Air-Earth-Fire). Tomorrow, Wednesday, has King Bnaspol, who is specifically indicated to be strong in Earth (Virgo) from his call. So, if I notice that the Earth tablet is activated, I could use this as evidence that the Heptarchical kings override the tablet order, but if the Air tablet is activated I could assume that the order of these leaves reflects the original Great Table order (though Mercury/King Bnaspol should be relatively strong in air, the main power indicated is over earth due to both exaltation and domicile, and most importantly the call to King Bnaspol). Things would be even stranger if Fire were activated, and I would probably throw up my hands if water were activated tomorrow as well!

Returning to the vision: this wateriness isn’t what I was expecting, and that’s okay! King Babalel is trying to guide me right now, and he says to make the call to governor Ziracah (note that this King is associated with Taurus, an Earth sign, which opposes the water sign of Scorpio, where Mars is strongest, and from which King Babalel presumably has his power over waters), which I do. I feel energy come up off the leaf and the water tablet. There’s a bit of shifting around of the energy now. The angels say that it’s not like one element is existing completely separately from another. Nonetheless, water is dominant; part of this, I’m told by King Babalel, is his own influence, but, yes, this leaf–and this call (presumably when used for gebofal)–is of a watery nature.

I ask, in all humility, the angels that if I indeed be in the realm of Adam Qadmon, to please show me what is to be shown. I’m told to make the call to the God of the West. Thus, the God of the West/Water is MPH ARSL GAIOL (OIP TEAA PDOKE), which is what I vibrated. [Despite my the godname from the original tablet,] I feel this water come up from the tablet and up my right leg, whooshing up and all about me from the water tablet. The angels note that yesterday, the full moon was in Scorpio (and, I would just add, aided by mutual reception from Mars in Cancer).

It’s a subtle point, but the angels are saying, “Water flows, and water dissolves. Water can move about in a rush, and if it hits you thus is most solid-like, like earth. For that reason it can behave like a solid when it is moving quickly or, of course, when it is frozen. Or, it can, just by a soluble being in contact with it, it can dissolve that soluble, and flow and transport the solution. So, its nature,” the angels tell me, “is to break down, and to transport, whether that be temperature, whether that be through dissolution, through flowing, or through the force of its pushing, like unto a solid. It breaks down, and it transports.”

So when I ask how this relates to the geometry in the Aethyrs, the angels are saying, “What this can do is break down the current association between points, and it can, as a result, move two points together or further apart. It can also act as an intermediary between the two.” I express my gratitude to the angels and to God for this, and I ask if there be anything else. They say, “No. Continue to treat this a bit as an experiment,” because this is kind of new to me, so I take it to heart, in heart. They’re adding, “More will be revealed to you: this was going to be a bit clunky, anyway, but now you know the best way to approach this.” I thank them and they give me as homework to flesh out the remaining days, so I thank them and I will.

Noon: Call 19 (18 as labeled by most practitioners). Call to King Babalel. As usual (I haven’t included it because I mentioned it earlier), I vibrate the title of Leaf 19a. Taking the lessons from this morning’s Aethyr, I vibrate the name of God MPH ARSL GAIOL. I vibrate the names of King Ziracah and Governor Obvaors. Feet are placed as mentioned earlier.

The angels have me relax. Once again, I feel energy arise from the Water Quadrant/Tablet; I even moved the seal of King Babalel to under my left foot, and though I felt energy come up from that seal when making the call to him, I instead found the energy coming up from my right heel again when making this call.

Now they move on to reviewing the morning’s lesson & vision with me: water transports, water dissolves, thus it can dissolve the relationship between two times, and can also transport between them. Now they ask me to review this with respect to geometry; once again, this is a reviewing of the lessons of the higher Aethyrs, as I was promised, yet the angels note that this relates to the lower Aethyrs as well: all of reality. The effect of water is its rearranging of conditions. These elements can rearrange the conditions in which Heaven and Earth meet (see yesterday’s scrying) so that the flow that one is in is being met properly and appropriately. The angels assure me that a lot of these lessons will be learned by my unconscious mind more than anything else.

They move on to asking me to consider two points, or even a system of points of geometric consciousness of an individual. It’s natural that, in interacting with someone else, there would be a certain amount of elemental water involved in the realm of consciousness. If one increases the amount of water in the individual, then there’s a bit of dissolution of the structures that one has in place, which could cause two points to separate, or perhaps come closer together, but regardless it changes the arrangement of no less than two points to each other. Also, the angels have me consider the transportation of certain new solutes into the system by dint of the introduction of water.

Now the angels turn to the knock-on effects. Introducing more water forces that system to react by bringing in more earth in order to remain in its current arrangement, or perhaps to decide how it wishes to flow or rearrange itself given this introduction of water. Also, the transportation of a flow between two different and currently set points–assuming no dissolution is involved–the individual would need to decide whether they want a flow between these points. For example, would the individual want their set point of “compassion” to flow to and/or from an individual who has done heinous crimes? Do they want that compassion to be linked up to someone whom they, to that point, have viewed as “evil”? So the individual may need to rearrange the way that certain ideas flow, so this is a bit of a secondary dissolution (i.e., a rearrangement of a relationship between established points of consciousness), rather than a primary one.

Now the angels take me back and have me consider the person who is giving or introducing the water. Someone with a more Scorpionic take may want to introduce water in order to investigate or understand something better; this is not unheard of for people with planets in Scorpio, with an intensity, which sort of shoots water out like a pipe or a hose, such as to hose down a dirty car or to aim directly at a fire. A Scorpionic sense of this, the angels tell me, is much more–and this, again, is opposed to the sign of Taurus, ruled by King Ziracah, yet in line with King Babalel (whose link to Scorpio I’ve already mentioned), so there’s this interesting dynamic between these two angels. At any rate, the angels are saying that someone who is introducing water could be coming at it with this Scorpionic intensity and focused kind of water, that fixed water which is aimed precisely at a fixed point.

Now the angels turn to the introduction of water from someone with planets in Cancer. Here, the transporting quality of water is paramount, as with nutrients. Or, in the cardinal sense of the sign, water may be used to change the dynamic about someone. For example, in a protective manner, someone with, say, a Mars in Cancer (as we have now), the water is used to dissolve points about someone in a dangerous situation so that they can leave the old dynamic and move into a newer, safer one. How water would act from Cancer is thus very dependent on the needs of the situation (recall that Cancer is ruled by the moon, the fastest-moving of the planets and associated largely with the final formation of circumstances just before they emerge into this world, i.e., Yesod), and those things or circumstances that it senses or intuits should be begun.

Finally, we have mutable water: Pisces. So here we have the sign of fish, whose entire reality is water. Here, the person themselves is being transported along with the water that they reside in. Whereas a crab may or may not reside in water–a fish must live in water. Fish must therefore be highly adaptable to water in all of its measureless (“infinite”) variety: “TON MAOFFAS DAMPLOZ,” the angels use the Enochian phrase. The consciousness is thus in this water, and this sign chooses to live with somewhat fewer “fixed points.” Granted, a fish still has somewhat fixed points relative to its own body, but it sees the world with much more fluid points about it. Nonetheless, if water is going certain direction, the fish must account for the flow of the water, the changes of points caused by the water, what’s transported in the water: that whole concept is very much to be considered (clearly, I have no planets in Pisces or Cancer, so the angels take their time explaining these!).

“This is a lot,” the angels acknowledge. I ask whether they have anything in their generosity, if they be so inclined, to offer, and they say, “No,” but bid me to write this up. They acknowledge that these are complicated lessons, but important to consider, because now we’re going to get at some of the “roots” of the 360 degree circle/ecliptic (note the play on root and “square root”–19 being the rounded square root of 360), and all of that which is within it. The 30 degrees of the Aethyrs is the repeated cycle within any given sign, but these are the root principles of the entire Zodiac: “What is at the root of the Zodiac,” they clarify.

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Similar procedure: Vibrating the titles of Leaf 19a&b. Call to King Babalel. Vibrated the God names “MPH, ARSL, GAIOL.” (Note: I have decided to revert to the Tabula Recensa, so such vibrations will be associated with their usual locations. In the case of Water/West, the association is OIP, TEAA, PDOKE). Because I’m confident in this being a thoroughly watery vision, I place both feet upon the water Watchtower tablet, which has the seal of King Babalel above it.

I see this wave part in front of me, and it’s like a vision of Moses parting the Red Sea, and the angels are just pointing out the staff–associated with fire symbolically–which parts water, and how the action of water is undone. I’m approached by King Babalel, speaks to me for the rest of the vision. He walks with me and has me take note of all of the different geometric points in the two sides of the walls of water held in stasis. He notes the fish therein, and he notes the crabs (some in the water, some on the land on which we walk), and the scorpions. He notes the pinpoint accuracy of the stinger of a scorpion, and the crab’s circular crabwalk (like unto the moon!), and he notes how the fish seem to be everywhere in the water and seem to defy a lot of logic in their way.

“But each of them has their strong points,” he remarks. Now I’m feeling more energy come up off of the leaf. “Just to get very specific about how this relates to the realm of Adam Qadmon,” King Babalel transitions, and how I need to consider this as I do this: he notes that today was a somewhat difficult day for me to maintain the compassionate heart, but I did sort of rally at the end of the day. “This is a good thing,” he continues, “and now have compassion for all of this. Have compassion for the fact that water dissolves! and have compassion for the different ways in which it acts! and begins things anew! and can be concentrated, and focused!” Basically, he finishes the point: “have compassion for these various areas of your own chart, relatively empty though they may be!”

I agree, and as I do so, I see a watery sphere about me (here’s an alternative reference), and King Babalel says to take a good look around, and to really note this. When I’m encountering others in the future, he says, “You will get a sense of what’s going on with them, and what seems to be lacking based on a sense of their aura. ‘This is not watery enough,’ or, ‘This is too watery.’ This can be combined with the general sense of chakras,” which, he adds, do not completely overlay with planetary influences, yet it’s its own septenary nature which tends to combine at times. Mars, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter (whose rulership in the zodiac opposes each other) are more or less like unto the elements. Yet the three remaining have been of interest to me in their higher forms: the sun overlays with the heart, the moon with the third eye (as broad intuition), and Saturn with the crown chakra (as Binah). The king advises me to be aware that I will have a greater sense of other people. This will be a transformation of me and my perception, because I’ve been given such a vast and wonderful teaching (and, as I write this up, I wonder whether a deeper, more fundamental teaching has been given to my energetic system), which I heartily agree with.

King Babalel kindly says that the angels are grateful for the work that I’m doing to teach this stuff and giving as much as I can in return, and says many other kind things, and gives me a subtle bow. I make sure to give a deep bow in return and give my thanks to him and all of the angels. He notes the holiness of this day, the 31st day of the ritual (31 is associated in Gematria with the name El or ‘God’), and that I will only see him two more times in this ritual.

I ask if there’s anything I need to concern myself with as far as calling the kerubs or so-called “lesser” angels of the Watchtowers, and King Babalel tells me that they are not appearing the same way here in this ritual. This is but the first lesson about water, he says, and I will rev up into the next lesson–except it won’t be him next time. I extrapolate that perhaps the next time will be Saturday, but I’m fine discovering this as the days unfold.

I express my gratitude again, and ask whether he has other things to show to me. “No,” he says, but notes that he is very pleased and to continue especially with the compassion. This will make everything make much more sense, and that ultimately we’re getting into some root forces of the heart here.

Gebofal, Day 21 (The “Super-Spooky” ZAX / Abyss Day)

Note: I’m clearly being a bit facetious with the title, but it serves the purpose of informing people that, yes, the abyss can be crossed even if there’s bizarreness or even a little horror associated with it.

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of ZAX. Call to Governors LEXARPH, COMANAN, & TABITOM, to King Bnapsen, and to Zodiacal Kings Zinggen (Aquarius), Alpudus (Libra), and Zarzilg (Sagittarius).

I had been identifying with the lotus-rose, but the angels say not to: instead, to hold it by the sepals, which now wrap around to grasp each of my fingers gently. I get some distracting images and pause to vibrate the angels’ names and to breathe. I feel this welling up of compassion, and it pours forth in all directions about me, even towards the distractions and I follow the chain of their causation, and I get to the fundamental structure of the law. A snotgreen being tries to close a snotgreen curtain, and finally the governors force him back.

The angels open the veil, and create a triangle about me, and note that the four of us could also be a tetrahedron viewed from above. The zodiacal kings then form another triangle, and I’m at the center of a Merkaba symbol now. Finally, the angels are telling me that there’s another layer: I could be the eighth point of a cube, at the center of a 6-simplex, or a vertex of a 7-simplex. The angels are driving at what it takes to get into this higher-dimensional thinking.

I continue to hold compassion for everything about me, and I see an arm emerge, and it belongs to one of the Takers in season 5 of The Magicians, or the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth. I note the constant attempt to fight the dispersion, and the angels tell me to hold fast in my position, so I do. There emerges a white cube, and he’s within it, and not liking being within it. He sort of reintegrates back into the environment.

I note the pattern but also note that if the dispersion-disruption cycle is accelerated, then it’s like if you ignore the hand which waves rapidly back and forth in front of your face: you still see and get the general idea of what’s happening. So the angels instruct me to speed up the process, and I begin circulating the compassion and concentration quickly. The angels and I are in our 6-simplex formation. I see a middle-aged guy in a really cheap-looking outfit superhero outfit with terrible wings.

I vibrate the angels’ names, and finally(!) the entire scene shatters into thousands of square mirrors which are all about me and whirling about me in a vortex. I try to crank up the compassion. This is like unto a realm of Binah, yet note the squares which show that this is still Abyssal. I concentrate, and the angels encourage me, “because all of these squares (signifying cubical consciousness) can be circled!” I concentrate really hard, and the energy shifts from the book, and I have compassion even for the concentration.

The angels indicate that all of these cubes will now curl into spheres, but I will still be able to see the cubes engraved upon them. (Note: My first encounter with Babalon in ZIP was of Her in a dress of crystal spheres). The grand concentration of the mind needs to be met equally with the compassion of the heart and I’m holding onto this lotus-rose to help me, and it holds me back. Each of the square mirrors was a thorn upon the rose, I’m told. I comment about the immense difficulty of this concentration, which is far higher than I recall the first time I scried this Aethyr!

Now the compassion and concentration are balanced as I try to magnify the former. Again, it’s a whirlwind of these mirrors. Figures try to step out, and now they don’t look like themselves, and I vibrate the angels’ names again, and the outer forms of the figures look like unto gray aliens now. (My cat comes in to interrupt). Having compassion helps them to looks somewhat more human, and I tell the angels that this is getting very fractal, and I ask if they have anything else, and what the endpoint and what understanding may be gleaned from this.

The angels say that what’s to be gleaned by this is that the vastness of knowledge that is to be had can go in any of these multitudinous directions. Yet if you inquire with an open mind and an open heart, they will begin to reflect like mirrors, and eventually you will begin to reach a point where they can all be concentrated into these spheres of awareness, but it takes a lot, and if you do it at this cosmic scale, such it will be. But the point is that the divine is there to be had. It takes work over a lifetime(s), and you can get some shortcuts, but this is the nature of that.

The aliens, I’m told, represent a conglomeration of knowledge that loses its awareness of its own divinity. This clicks everything into place and I just have so much compassion now for everything in this place, because that’s a bad state to be in. The angels say that this is enough for now, and that more will be revealed later, though I have the flavor of what this place is like now.

Noon: Similar procedure. I made three calls to King Bnapsen.

Once again I scry by holding the lotus-rose by the sepals. I see squid-like entities jump at me, but it’s like they hit this glass pane and slide down, ineffective. I generate compassion and lovingkindness and circulate it. I try to speed this up, and accelerate the process, and the general theme changes into square mirror, which transform into “sphered cubes,” which in this case is to say a transparent cube with a square etched on the inside. It’s difficult to see at this stage, though, because of the generated compassion.

Now I see a central column appear, it looks like a giant pleather cowgirl boot. I pause, regenerate compassion, and, seeing the dust that it generates from stomping the bottom of the chamber, I phase-shift through it. I grab hold of the boot like Jack in the Beanstalk, or a kitten, and the boot rises like someone looking at what’s gotten on their boot. It appears to be Babalon, in a cowgirl outfit (her fringe, & frilly skirt is particularly “80s cowgirl”!).

I’m hesitant, but She says to me, “No, you have the flavor of the lack of [this aethyr’s] lack of awareness of its own Divinity, but you are generating your own divinity here. You are aware of your own Divinity, which is why you’re seeing it. The fact that there can be a transition, even with an Abyssal aethyr like ZAX, that shows you the Power of Understanding and not letting go of It.”

She says she’s wearing this in honor of the fact that I’m a Taurus, so I’m very honored. She sets me down (after all, She’s hundreds of feet tall), and She begins dancing. It’s like she’s in a bullfighting arena, a (nonviolent) toreadora (or “matadora” or “mater tor”: “mother for”). The bulls are all black, and She allows them, and She invites me to join Her, and I do, and a bull charges me, and everything goes black, but I reappear, and She says that I need to dance, so my astral form does so, but it becomes more like country-style partner dancing. It’s like everything that comes to take away the Divinity in Us are not working.

I ask her specifically about the blood which She accumulates, and She says people the Sorrow because that’s what’s in their hearts. She says that I have “less Sorrow” and laughs. She holds up a black sphere, looking like crystal ball in her hands. She says that I am more aware of the transparency within the crystal ball than the blackness. For me, it’s a beautiful thing to gaze upon, but not what defines me.

I express my gratitude, and continue to hold onto the compassion and concentration. I ask the governors and kings if there’s anything else to be seen in this vision. I see a black dot approach me and come about me as a prison. “Remember I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” a line from the poem “Sympathy” by Paul Laurence Dunbar (later used as the title of the autobiography by Maya Angelou; she herself later wrote a poem called “Caged Bird” with similar imagery to Dunbar’s). I concentrate into this phrase: the angels say that this is what I bring to this aethyr, which many others do not Understand.

I’m not sure what it means, but I note that I’m on Leaf 29a, and thus page 28b is open. Regardless, I express my gratitude, and the vision ends.

Sunset: Similar procedure. I made the call to ZAX twice.

I see the lotus-rose. I see this beautiful heavenly light shining down upon the blossom, and I can feel the light entering my physical hands from it. There’s a sense of peace and I try to circulate it in and through me. Everything’s quite balanced across the sub-abyssal and supernal worlds. This is what ZAX is, I’m told: a beautiful balance between these worlds.

It’s like my heart is starting to sing, and the lotus-rose is starting to sing, and it blossoms even more, and Babalon is appearing as a ballroom dancer in a sleek, shimmery, black outfit, the skirt cut up the outside of her thighs, with a tophat and is dancing with aid of a pole.

Now She flies and rotates about the x/z plane and lands upon the nape of my neck and I walk around, giving Her a ride about–the symbolism couldn’t be more obvious. Now She interlaces Her extended fingers into a roof, and rotates Her hands forwards and backwards about my skull: She seems to be doing quite subtle work to my sahasrara chakra and its relationship to the ajna chakra, which I cannot feel physically but know is there. This will improve the overall flow between them and also among them and the anahata chakra. There’s also extraordinarily subtle work She’s doing to my vishuddha chakra, which nevertheless (being a Taurus and all) I can feel. All of this is changing the dynamic among these four chakras.

“That’s it,” She says. She bows and takes her top hat off and gives me a wink. She briefly takes the form of Nuit and dissolves into the night sky, and I ask the angels whether there’s anything else. They say no, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow as the vision ends.

Gebofal, Day 11

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of CHR (“khar”). Call to King BNASPOL and, though not stated, I’ve generally been vibrating the names of the governors of each Aethyr as well.

Again, I try to ensure I’m approaching with a heart of compassion. The angels ask me to lay the wand upon the table so that my left hand can rest on the Holy Table of Practice, while my right hand rests on Leaf 39b.

Once again, I try to speed the circulation so that it hits a high vibration. I see a tardis, which isn’t what I have in mind (they say that it’s okay: it helps that I haven’t seen much of the show). It turns into the front of a house. The angels instruct me to enter the front door, so I do; when I do so, I turn around and see that there is not one door behind me, but seven; the door I entered is the third from the left. I use my heart to guide me; at first I’m drawn to the fifth door from the left, but something draws me to the first door. I open it but there are monsters behind it. I try to see if they change in response to the lovingkindness, but they don’t, so I shut the door.

I go to the fifth door and open it. There is a large mountain. I see a figure there and vibrate King BNASPOL’s name. He becomes more vibrant and identifies himself as him. I am set atop a chair on top of a mountain. It’s a regular four-legged chair, but now it seems like a throne atop a mountain. I’m looking down onto a plain, and generate lovingkindness towards those below. There’s this concern or question as to whether this is enough, and I answer “No, it is enough–it’s more than enough.” I see a form of God in the clouds, and He asks whether it is ever enough. I say that if it be inspired by Him, then of course it would be. This seems to please God. This answer seems to shift things somehow.

It’s like I’m being tested sometimes along the way–there’s a drawing out of appropriate perspective by this Socratic method from time to time. I return to the center of the sphere after generating lovingkindness again, sitting on the dry seabed floor. King BNASPOL says, “Behold how variable one must be [in the heart]; the sitting within of the heart is ofttimes a variable qualium. I reflect on my occasional hyperfocus of the heart. I’m told not to worry if I move out of a universal love into a more focused version; instead, allow that the heart to continue, merely ensuring that the heart isn’t cut off from anything. For such is the nature of the heart. Remember the rotation of fixed stars about the torus, he tells me. Remember how God’s heart twists it and brings certain fixed stars into focus, and others not. Therefore it’s okay if one’s focus is uneven, as long as it doesn’t delude itself into the negative, seeing others as one’s enemy or unworthy of compassion. Other than that, it’s okay: this is the slippery nature of being in Hod. It’s similar to the twisting or rotation of God’s heart which is unknown to us but known to Him.

I’m grateful to King BNASPOL and note that the energy that this king receives isn’t often of lovingkindness, but he deserves it, too. He thanks me and hugs me, and I return the hug. He thanks me and also informs me that, no, this is not the time in which I will be reconciled with Mercury: that will happen later. I thank him, and he bids me farewell: the vision ends.

Noon: Similar procedure.

The angels bid me put my hand on the Holy Table, with the PELE side of the ring face down upon it, and I do. I pause to breathe evenly. King BNASPOL approaches. I vibrate his name, but this is not he. I vibrate the three governors’ name along with his, and now all approach, and two take my arms and two take my legs. I am placed at the top of a mountain peak again, but now the peak stabs me through the heart. My body is rotated around and it becomes liquidy as it does so, painting the mountain: coating it and sealing it.

I generate lovingkindness again, and this causes my body to fuse with the mountain, like a laminate. It seals in the the mountain, giving it a shimmer and a sheen. It creates a reddish-pinkish tinge, which becomes a golden tinge, and finally a whitish and etheric tinge, and finally there’s an unfolding of possibilities. It’s not clear what the timescale is, and there’s a suggestion of 1000 years. I’m unsure. The angels mention that 1000 years can be a day.

At any rate, I try to speed up the circulation caused by the heart of compassion. I’m told to look up, and I see a face appearing as a result of this transformation. It’s developing an identity. This, the angels say, is like unto humanity, or the people whose spirits I continue to touch over time. There’s a common understanding which emerges; I’m reminded of CodyP and his collective myth.

The mountain gets a character to it. It becomes alive and has its own intelligence. The mountain points directly upward to a star, the angels show me, and this star is the same star as last night’s. This star creates a shield about the Earth, which is like a cocoon which allows both dormancy and development. It’s like the seed of Kether developing and learning to sprout: this is enough for humanity, I’m told. The angels add that the mountain, with its own personality and character, can be approached by people and can provide what they need.

Now I see waves, and something like a dolphin intelligence approaching me playfully, like the playfulness of a seal from a dream some time ago. I follow it with a playful dive into the water of my own. This dolphin leads me to a group of dolphins, who say that they have things to tell me at a later date. Five dolphins touch noses, their bodies configured in a pentagonal formation. I reach my hand through the central space left by their noses, and I pull out the very tip of the nose of a whale.

It is the God whale of Dee & Kelley, like a blue whale, dark in hue. The dolphins say that together, they are like unto the intelligence of this whale. The angels tell me to go into the belly of the whale. At first, they say, it will appear dark, but after ZAX, it will become progressively clear to me.

The vision ends.

Sunset: Similar procedure; note that I was fairly tired and unfocused much of the day.

I see a zipper unzip, and when the sides of cloth are pulled away, I see stars. Then I see the night sky unzip and I see only light, and then that unzips and I see the night sky again, and finally another zipper and light again. This goes on for a bit. I continue to generate compassion, and now I see dark tentacles surround me. I continue to hold the torch of compassion. I circulate the speed of compassion, and now I’m in a dark thicket made up of these tentacles.

King BNASPOL is with me in the thicket, and he’s also being surrounded by tentacles. This is an illuding image, and I say that I want no part of this. It’s like the vision or the tentacles are trying to wait me out. I continue generating compassion for this and why such an image would even exist in the first place. I see that the darkness seems to be emerging from my at my feet, but I have compassion even for that and throughout. I continue to circulate this compassion, and the darkness finally stretches itself back to the surface of the sphere. The blackness around King BNASPOL finally fades.

I vibrate the governors’ names as well, and I see them ripped apart and then regenerating themselves. I’m told that this is a difficult kind of reading [sic] for them, because King BNASPOL’s nature is fluid. It (astrological Mercury) can be of either the nocturnal or diurnal sect, and Mercury itself is quite fluid. If this be the 11th day of straight day of scrying an Aethyr since TEX (this being the 20th Aethyr), then this is roughly equivalent to the mouth of the Abyss. Every three days it’s like I’m scrying 21 Aethyrs on account of the sevenfold intensity, so there’s a day that’s like unto the mouth of the Abyss (especially the evening of that day), then a day that feels like the Abyss itself, then the day following that. Every three days it’s the same experience, just at a higher level, roughly. Note: I get the sense that this cycle will clearly be over once I scry ZIP on the 18th of this month.

I’m holding a lot of compassion for all the beings about me, and I’m bowing to the compassion in King BNASPOL’s heart for what he’s going through for me (note: I can’t remember whether he’s still somewhat entangled in the tentacles). I try to accelerate this so that his suffering is minimized. He smiles and seems to step forth from the tangle of tentacles about him. He says, “This is the suffering within you when you are overly identifying with the act of suffering.” One needs to continue to look past the immediate thing that one sees, and consider at the core of cores, at the heart of the heart of the heart, what the meaning is behind it, and it’s not easy to witness. Yet we all suffer for each other.

King BNASPOL says that these visions needn’t always be amazing. Just continue to hold onto and lift the torch, even if things seem like nothing but blackness. He acknowledges that this is the last of Day 11, meaning that there are 10 more days of the darkness about me, and that I have the symbol of the white square, which contains and squares the black circle of suffering. There will be a way out of suffering in this world, but there are reasons why some people choose to suffer–so as to aid the white square of the dharma. There’s a lot of compassion on all sides, hence the white circle within the black circle.

I ask the governors and king what else they may in their generosity choose to show me. They reiterate that I’m being a good guest, to continue to have faith, even though there are times in which bipolar disorder acts up in me. It’s okay, and they’re proud to see how far I’ve come. Maintain the faith and compassion, they say. The angels point back up to the star, reminding me of the lesson about the need to be tender towards one’s own compassion, as though caring for one’s infant self. I express gratitude, and the vision ends.

Gebofal, Day 2

Sunrise: Procedure (the general procedure can be ascertained by this): Facing East: the Prayer of Enoch as quoted by the Angel Ave to Edward Kelley. Recitation of call to King BLUMAZA (Monday) via Stenwick’s Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy, but not using Call 1 since I’m limiting myself to one call to be used on a given day. Call 48, the key to the Aethyr of RII.

The angels instruct me to vibrate the title of Leaf 48b, to which I’ve turned. They also instruct me to place my hand flat and dead center upon this page. There’s a definite feeling of the energy to this; a hefty unlocking to the subtle body energy. The angels have me recite the Enochian Heart mantra I composed (I add a “IX OI NOALN MOZOD K’ILSI, IAD”–“Let this become Divine Joy unto Thee, God” to the end of the regular mantra). The energy is quite pleasurable.

King Blumaza is trying to steady my body. The angels collectively point out that I’ve requested assistance in the realization of the rainbow body. They pull my awareness back from behind my subtle body so that I can see it, and it seems to be shimmering as an outline and as a light body. It essentially appears as clear light in the Buddhist tradition, and they inform me that it is healthy. Realization of the rainbow body, they tell me, is an unlocking of the heart to awareness of the subtle body, specifically the heart being at one with–and okay with–the flux of unfolding of possibility. “In what ways am I not doing this?” I ask. In certain ways with respect to a hyperfocus on myself in specific roles, and a need to honor the whole of myself and the whole of others. “Welcome to Saturn in Aquarius,” (my 7th house), I quip.

The angels give me a preview of the sphere of LIL from my previous scryings of it. I note that we’re getting previews of these later Aethyrs far earlier. Here the angels tell me that every subsequent day will enfold the previous days’ scrying sessions. They have me pay attention to the square pyramid, its full form of the octohedron (which, as it includes infernal consciousness), and the octahedron’s dual polyhedron complement, the cube. All of these point to “evil” or dukkha nature of material existence, yet this is helpful in bringing forward many paths of compassion. This is done in the sense that the outer points or vertices of a cube (material reality) or the octahedron (the elements’ embedding within material reality) are tangential to the points of a sphere of a given radius. This dual polyhedra pair can be thought of as a given angle seen by an individual, but this rotation would appear different to another. At any rate, multiple points unique to each individual which touch the sphere of all possible points can be thought of as a unique collection “fixed stars” (True Wills), one for each individual. The sphere itself can be thought of as the range of possibility a person inhabits. The Enochian angels are big on geometry.

The angels mention that I should take heed of the movement of the heart. Ultimately people moving with compassion is still a “cubing of the sphere,” not in the sense of getting the same amount of volume, but rather finding the appropriate orientation in which the True Will is realized and followed. There needs to simultaneous realization of the state of dukkha (cube consciousness) as well as finding the compassion to transcend suffering and help others do so (the points of the “fixed stars” of the True Will toward which the soul of an individual can travel, found along the sphere). When I ask about how this relates to the subtle body, the point back to the heart. Though the body has this dissatisfactory nature, this dukkha, such as in its tendency to grow old, to suffer disease/injury and death, the heart center (anahata) is like the sphere of Divinity, or can itself be seen as a personal microcosm of divinity within a person or entity, which can be as accepting of the unfolding of cubic reality–even in its dissatisfactoriness & falling away from the Kabbalistic World of Adam Qadmon and from Kether in Atziluth–the heart can be as accepting of this as God can be.

The angels close by telling me more of this will be revealed as I continue gebofal and work on opening the heart. Continue with the heart mantra, they tell me. The vision ends.

Noon: Same procedure, but Facing South. I vibrate title of Leaf 48a. This one was somewhat more difficult than the morning’s ritual, likely due to the washing machine in the adjacent room. There is indeed energy coming from the page, which I have my hand flat on (on account of the plastic sleeves–I used a scrapbook format for the book in order to preserve the pages as best I can).

I see the a point as the center of a sphere and an inscribed cube/octahedron. There’s a variable rotation to the sphere about the inscribed cube/octahedron. There’s a sense of the mind of God/the Divine working through the fixed stars, as it were, which relate to the True Will.

Now the angels form a tetrahedron, and I form the fifth point for a 5-cell polytope. Then the angels post the question to me: if I were instead the center of a tetrahedron, would I know the difference? Here I should interject: it’s probably a good idea for you to watch a video of a rotating 5-cell now. The answer I give is, of course, “No,” I could be mistaken that I’m at the center whereas instead I would suffer from an optical illusion. Here they point out that getting an additional state of consciousness with which to observe reality (such as meditation) is key to learning to orient oneself, and understand whether one is in a higher-dimensional perspective, or whether one has “fallen,” or remains stuck in, a lower-dimensional POV. This is important when it comes to understanding how well the heart has unfolded vs. remaining self-centered.

At any rate, the angels point out the importance of cube-octahedral consciousness, in order to get a better bearing on one’s set of fixed stars/True Will, and on the perimeter of the sphere, to thereby infer the center. Keep in mind that there’s a lot of geometrical metaphor with respect to the emotional heart, yet there’s also likely literal geometry being discussed. The angels point out that their nature is to be helpful, and continue the heart analogy: they can create a design into which a human being becomes the center, but in so doing they can change the arrangement which aligns to a different sphere in which a person can operate. They can also change a warped heart; for example in the case of a skewed octahedron/square pyramid (here the analogy would be a base of fire that is too wide, suggesting a hot-headed & angry heart), they can help to re-align and balance the elements. This is partly why the HGA is so key, because not only does the HGA appear after a period of balance is reached, but the HGA can continuously help to rebalance and to invite in other angels or spirits which can reconfigure the soul so that it can further unfold. Essentially, the heart detaches and remains in equanimity even as it continues to act according to the True Will.

In passing, the angels mention that the number of governors correspond to an astrological aspect: 3 governors suggest grand trines, where as 4 governors suggest grand crosses. Of extra geometrical note is that a 5-cell (4-dimensional polytope) has 10 triangle faces and thus 30 angles, which matches the number of Aethyrs, and that a 6-simplex (6-dimensional polytope) has 35 faces and thus 105 angles, which matches the number of letters on Leaf 49.

The focuses to what appears to be a bendy flagpole, except it seems like cloth tied to the top of it. What is this? Ah, the scene changes to show a mature dandelion with sail-seeds. Remaining at the center of spherical consciousness, one naturally produces seeds of benefit (as it were if dandelions were a desirable plant). There needn’t be any effort to scatter the seeds: they will be planted by the normal course of events without any effort. It occurs to me to ask whether this applies to a person reaching towards heaven, or an angel descending toward earth, and they say that both views are correct.

Finally, the angels mention that the exact placement of the moon had to do with the communication difficulties, and that I should simply continue to scry thrice daily.

Sunset: Similar procedure, facing West for the prayer of Enoch. I will probably be more diligent about my orientation throughout the rest of gebofal.

The angels ask me to reflect on the 6 and 8 points of contact between the circumscribed spheres of a the dual polyhedra of a cube and octahedron: 14 in all. They ask me to reflect on the 6-simplex (here we return to the simplest polytope in 7 dimensions) which is self-dual, meaning that altogether the two have 14 points on a single circumscribed 7D 6-sphere. So here the angels are pointing to an obvious resolution to the number 7 with respect to equidistance about a point: “Seven, rest in seven,” as the prayer goes, and of course a self-dual 6-simplex has 70 faces, for a total of 14 points and 70 faces (84=7*12, the number of planets times number of zodiacal signs, or (2*2*3)*(2+2+3)), or 140 faces + tetrahedra (14, which we’ve seen, times 10, the number of sephiroth and the base of the most commonly used number system).

The last part is me being told that the ultimately unfolding of this part of the Enochian angelic system as being in a similar to that of DMT entities (for the record, I have no experience of the latter yet). They close by suggesting again the “missingness” of the 7 letters in Leaf 49, and also to consider 7 as the reconciliation between 6 & 8. I also am told to retain the spirit of open-heartedness as a good guest.
