Here’s my latest round of Enochian channeling. See here for the technique.
Generally speaking, if you work Enochian, you work with angels. There is a specific set of angels which can be contacted from Enochian, and Enochian has contacts with both the Olympic spirits of the Arbatel as well as the traditional archangels.
Enochian’s first and second spoken calls are associated with evocation and invocation, respectively, by Scott Stenwick in his Mastering the Mystical Heptarchy. I’ve taken to reciting both of these calls preceding any Enochian working and have found that they increase the intensity of the scrying.
The matter of evocation and invocation, it seems to me, is a blurrier one than might at first be supposed. Each of us is exponentially more extended into the universe than our physical bodies, so the distinction between evocation and invocation is less clear-cut than it may seem.
My usual scrying method, which is what I practice when scrying alone, is experiencing a vision and reporting what I see for my phone. On rare occasions during my 2019 Aethyr scrying, though, I channeled an angel during trance at the end (in my experience of LIL, the channeling happened the same way, but with the Divine). These angelic channelings were a bit disorienting (my subtle body was, I’m sure, still adjusting!).
I have been feeling drawn to channeling of late, and I gave some thought to how this might fit in an Enochian paradigm. The 30 Aethyrs have been likened to subdivisions between Earth and the Divine, much like the 7 heavens. LIL is the Aethyr nearest the Divine, while TEX is closest to Earth. Ideally, a channeled source would be close to the Divine, but accessible to people and thus close to Earth.
I do occasionally experiment with new methods using Enochian and this is one of those times. Consulting with Cody P., I iterated a technique to channel angels, which is as follows. First, after activating the Enochian furniture as usual, recite calls 1 & 2. Next, recite the call to the Aethyrs, calling LIL. Repeat the call to TEX, then repeat the call again to “TEX A LIL, OD LIL A TEX” (TEX in LIL, and LIL in TEX). Finally, recite the following prayer:
NAH IAD, A AQLO IEHUSOZ, OZAZMA OI L CARTABAS DE AQLO BIAL, OD DLUGAR K’OI L AQLO CNOQUODI, CORS YLS NOALN. DRIX UNAL K’OI L, IEH JAIDA, OD GRU MANIN DE OI L GE CAMLIAX CAPIMAO CNOQUODI CAMLIAX, FAFEN BIEN CAMLIAX AQLO VAULZIRN, OD CAOSGI SOLPETH YLSI, OD GEMEGANZA.
IX PRIAZI CASRMG NOALN DSOM, SOLPETH OD PURAN; IX TON MONONS OD MANIN CASARMG, A QCOCASB, NOALN AZIA UNAL DSOM, SOLPETH OD PURAN.
This translates to:
“Glorious God, in your mercies, make this one [me] with the governors of your voice, and give unto this one your ministers, such as you may. Bring down these unto this one, merciful highest God, and cause the mind of this one to not speak while the ministers speak, to the intent that the voice speaks your wonders, and Earth hearkens unto Thee, and Your Will Be Done!
“Let those in whom may be those who understand” [i.e., who over time would become those who understand] “hearken and see; let all hearts and minds in whom, with the contents of time, may be like unto these who understand, hearken and see.”
This prayer obviously asks for God to send an angel to speak and, crucially, ask that the channeler’s mind stay silent in order for the channeled angel’s voice to come through. Finally, the last part of the prayer directs that the recipients of the message be able to understand it (or that only those who can understand it would receive it).
Let me caution upfront: if you haven’t scried all of the Aethyrs, you may have a more limited vision of LIL. LIL is also more powerful than most Aethyrs, and for this reason I recommend “leveling up” one’s system by scrying the Aethyrs sooner than later. That being said, scrying the union of TEX and LIL was extraordinarily peaceful. It’s probable that only this union of the two Aethyrs needs to be scried.
Now on to my experience. An angel named Tetranos came through with a beautiful message, including the gorgeously evocative phrase, “Listen to the sun,” which reminds me of POROMA, “the secret sun which gives understanding,” a neo-Enochian word I received in 2019. Using the Enochian numerological calculator on Thelemistas (which I believe is based on the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn), Tetranos comes to 1000, and to 112 in ALW English on Gematrinator (which is the number of letters transmitted for Leaf 49). The etymology of Tetranos also suggests a quaternary nature to the entity—and both numbers are divisible by four.
If you try this technique (it’s still kind of in beta due to the length—I may only scrying the union of TEX & LIL followed by the aforementioned prayer). Good luck!

Update: The 2021 introductory rate is over. Please visit YourLightBridge.com from current rates.
After 20 years of studying astrology, this fall I decided to take the next step and become a certified astrologer. On Monday, I got 95% on my NCGR-PAA Professional Certification Examination!
With that, I would like to expand my services to include astrological consultation.
If you reach out to me through the end of 2021, you receive one hour of consultation for an introductory rate of 25 U.S. dollars. We can discuss the astrological factors you were born under, look at upcoming astrological influences, and/or or come up with some fortunate astrological time for an important event, such as a wedding date and time or for starting a business. Over time I intend to expand this into horary and other areas of astrology.
Even more, I will be offering a very special service, which is to provide up to seven angel names that are unique to you, derived from your natal chart (following Agrippa & Leitch). I will also give you a short write-up of how these angels could be petitioned. You can request names derived from either the Hebrew or Enochian alphabet (I’ll provide suggested pronunciations).
This will also be offered for $25, but only offered at this rate through the end of 2021.
Financial Hardship: Not to worry: I’ve been there! If you cannot pay, please let me know; just put “Hardship” in the subject line of your email. I will do one hour of free or pay-what-you-can consultation per month, on a first-come, first-serve basis. I only ask that someday, when things get better for you, just offer your generosity to someone else.
If you have a question related to Enochian or magick more generally, send me an email and I’ll try my best to give a thoughtful answer at the end of the month!
See update at bottom:
One of the things that has stuck with me since yesterday (Day 37) of the gebofal(-like) ritual is the implications of the various angel “sets,” and how this relates back to the idea of squaring the circle from Days 33 and 34. With four elements and eight different angelic powers per element, and four angels per power and two controlling names of God per power…this gets complicated.
I’ve decided to reduce this largely to the powers and only exploring a single element of fire. Below is a diagram to help illustrate what I’m talking about; the colors are not completed but it’s sufficient:
Here, I have shown the powers roughly related to the fire quadrant; the order so much doesn’t matter to me, but rather a suggestion of an idea that the kerubs and “lesser” angels exist somewhere within these circles, corresponding roughly to the areas of the numbers 1 through 8 (only 1-4 are shown due to space constraints). I have created square ABCD to indicate an overlap between the powers of 1, 2, 3, & 4 (again, the order doesn’t matter so much to me, because such hasn’t been the order as they’ve arrived, but in this case Living Creatures, Transportation, Gold and Precious Stones, and Medicine).
The key point I want to make is that, regardless of the actual order, my conjecture is that the seniors occupy segments EF, FG, and, not shown, GJ, connecting these overlapping squares. The king would occupy the entire upper-left quadrant (this would require a cross which would make the diagram too busy, but use your imagination). I’ll also note that this roughly overlaps with the symbolism received during the vision:
The spiral here indicates the work that I’ve been doing to get at the center, and overlays well with the symbolic representation of the Watchtower tablets. The trinary nature of this is further symbolized by adding the pyramid and octahedron:
And finally, a later iteration suggesting the grounding of the symbol within earth:
This was later expanded on Day 30.
I am still not entirely clear on the purpose of the triangular portion; I have considered a model of “inside-outside-union” or “God-person-earth” or “Heaven/Future state-Becoming-Earth/Present state”; none of this is clear and I leave it to the rest of gebofal for it to become clear. Nonetheless, the geometry and symbolism continues to hold my focus.
Finally, I wanted to note the general thrust or spirit behind the forms of the powers of the angels:
Transformation: energy/matter qualia change for perception
Transportation: distinction of spacetime for perception
Gold & Precious stones: single-pointed focus of perception
Living: creates ability to perceive
Medicine: agency to continue perception
Secret Discovery: arrangement of perception
Mechanical Arts: arrangement of matter/energy
Natural substances: perception of differences within matter (qualia)
Seniors (“to impart or influence, knowledge and judgment in human affairs”): rules distinguishing perception across perceivers (this includes necessary changes to matter and energy to do so).
Update: So it occurred to me that there are six seniors per element, not three. One could make the argument that there are three seniors going from the outer square to the inner, and then three returning, which is to say EF to FG to GJ (or whatever that final letter should have been: man, I lose track of my own system when I do rush jobs!) and then back again: JG to GF to FE. This implies directionality, and I’m unsure about this.
Another possibility seems more likely: factorial math, where 3! is the number of connections. In the example above, suppose the common point is of square ABCD and the subsequent square with F as its center (yes, I really should’ve set that up better!) is point D (which for the next square would be in the upper-left corner). The next square we’ll label DXYZ (because I have to start at the back of the alphabet now!), the next we’ll label YUVW, and the innermost we’ll label VRST. This would leave three common points—D, Y, V, and S—across four squares per element (recall that I could only show three squares due to space constraints!), representing all four combinations of power dyads. Thus, rather than the centers, we consider this in terms of common points, which themselves connect to each other as six seniors, represented as DY, DV, DS, YV, YS, and VS.
One could take this step further and imagine these six seniors as six points of an octahedron, connecting the more visible angels, each of which occupies a triangle representing a power. Yet there are four angels per power, and two names of God controlling each set of four! For the former, the only thing I can think of is that each Angel set is divided evenly into four equilateral triangles. For the latter, I think about the duality of regular polyhedra (credit to Tilman Piesk), and the dual of the octahedron is the cube, which can be diced into eight smaller cubes, each of which has a point most external to the center, and has the common center among them. Each of the names of God controlling these sets of four angels can be represented as the outermost and innermost points of the smaller cube.
Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of LIT and the associated governors and Zodiacal Kings. Call to King Bynepor.
I just pour forth this compassion of the lotus-rose, to all of the angels and everything about me, and in so doing I become this rotation, this torus, again. I’m approaching spherical consciousness, very close to it, almost there, even though I’m on the fifth Aethyr and four more remain. There’s a little bit of a shimmer on the surface of the sphere, a tiny ripple, going about this torus/sphere. As I do so, the angels acknowledge that if I increase my concentration perfectly, I could probably hit perfectly spherical consciousness from here.
The angels are showing me a tree, and the angels note that a torus could be superimposed around the trunk, under the branches, and above the roots, but also a sphere could be circumscribed about the tree as a whole. If you change the parameters of the torus to make a double-sphere, then the dimensions of a tree can roughly be matched. The angels have me consider the twisting motion of a torus (like if you twisted a rubber hose whose ends were connect, so that the inside turned out and the outside turned in), the constant rotation which relates to the varieties of fortune.
I relate this to Adam Qadmon again, unintentionally. The angels say that this is okay. “Your mind can’t help but do that.” That can be considered like unto this force, they say, of Adam Qadmon, which can be considered like unto the force of the black-hole portal (I repeat, I’m aware of the difference between a black hole and a wormhole–this is the realm of metaphor). This is the force of Ain, which has its own dynamic when it becomes realized.
Things may change up, especially below the Abyss, where it might seem more chaotic. Here, above the abyss, it’s just this gentle rotation. They relate this vision back to the aethyr of ICH, and say this is when a certain character from that computer code gets sucked in to the supernals ahead of what might seem to be its schedule. That’s all part of this multidimensional rotation of spherical consciousness due to the multiplex force of Ain. The outer portion of the entire torus can be considered the realm of ICH itself. Likewise, one could extrapolate to some degree the inside of the abyss, which is to say Fortune seeming to shine on an individual, which for some may cause things to seem to “go well”: the Abyss, or Fortune, works good for themselves.
Getting back to the Aethyr of LIT, I consider how this relates to the tree I just saw. The angels note how that inner ring, where things are “going well”–and here King Bynepor comes to the fore to speak–“This regeneration, this generation of the tree, is like Fortune, or the Lot of Fortune, or the Wheel of Fortune, or the Torus of Fortune, hitting that tree and bringing about the growth, and you see outgrowth of that fortune in the general shape of the torus,” twisting upward in one sense [i.e., upper trunk and branches] but downward in another sense [lower trunk and roots].
I try to maintain concentration, and use this lotus-rose from my heart to do so. “Ah,” the angels say, “let’s take a look at this lotus-rose. So here we have this combination of pain within suffering [the thorns], that black sphere, and we have the portion beyond the abyss, the nice layers of the whitish petals, which are the post-abyssal consciousness (supernals).
“Separate two things,” they say. “The rotation of the sphere is caused by this force of the world of Adam Qadmon, which is ‘World without End,’ which has multiple dynamics when they hit this reality.” But what the angels are saying now is, “Look to…” (here I note my difficulty concentrating), “look to…
“The dynamic of Adam Qadmon is that space, right?” I try to remagnetize my heart, and that helps. The angels show that if you remagnetize to this space, you can consider that to be the general forward linear path toward the portal into this realm of Adam Qadmon. I vibrate the angels’ names, and they say to hold for a moment, and to relax.
“This forward path of the infinite line of Adam Qadmon–this forward path, this constant path, this walking of this path, this traversing of the path: this is one who has become magnetized to the line approaching Adam Qadmon. When one is in spherical consciousness, one remains about–revolving about the world of Adam Qadmon, in that consciousness, but it is not the line which enters it. One is caught up in the revolution of this spherical consciousness about Adam Qadmon, but in order to enter it, in order to realize the Enochian phrase which I’d previously translated, “CASASAM MAOFFAS QAA DE MIAM DE TON DAMPLOZ OLPIRT” (the abiding measureless garment [“created form”] of the continuance of all variety of light (i.e., the rainbow body))–in order to realize this, one has to be magnetized to the infinity. The angels clarify: there’s the bounded infinity of a spherical consciousness, and then there’s the unbounded infinity, which is the rainbow body, the boundless unfolding of that. A set of fixed stars can be considered an infinite direction that one goes, but in order to have compassion for all of those fixed stars, and thereby enter into a more infinite arrangement, one needs to take the path of the infinite line, and not merely the orbit of the (bounded) infinite sphere which orbits about the portal to the world of Adam Qadmon. You can have this infinite compassion, and continue upon it, but you won’t know the revolution about this infinite consciousness.
Complicated! But not overly so. The angels have set me straight, and I express my gratitude to them. Thus ends the vision.
Noon: Similar procedure; I make two calls to King Bynepor and two to the Aethyr, just because I sense my attention wandering.
I concentrate my heart upon this lotus-rose and I try to remain magnetized to the path toward the world of Adam Qadmon. The angels are showing me the same sphere, with the smallest of ripples upon it, and I can see tiny rainbows about the surface (again, this seems like vast distances across Aethyrs are being bridged now; usually such forthright visions of the sphere do not occur until later in the process).
The angels relate the rainbow and ripples to the energy of being near the orbit of the portal to the realm of Adam Qadmon. This is a metaphorical Roche effect. In principle, the angels say, this rainbow lighting is Chokmah energy to a degree, but that tiny ripple is due to the (metaphorical) gravity of the realm of Adam Qadmon. It’s that the sphere is approaching this metaphorical Roche limit, and I feel my heart being pulled towards that portal, because I have been working to remain magnetized to this path.
I ask the angels what else, in their generosity or mercy they or the Almighty may have. They suggest nudging myself a little bit closer towards this portal, so that I can feel and be truly magnetized to this path towards the realm of Adam Qadmon. The angels say to take the next few days to approach and, on Monday, to actually enter the event horizon of this portal.
The following 18 days, I’m told, will be an attuning to the elements in such a way that one doesn’t become imbalanced as one reaches this realm of Adam Qadmon. Note here, again, the importance of balanced elements appears again, as at key phases in the magical journey: Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel, Crossing the Abyss, and now full realization of the realm of Adam Qadmon.
I see myself being slowly pulled closer to this portal. The angels say to think about the absolute minimum distance and to hold there. After 18 days, I will be in that event horizon, and on the 19th day I’ll be crossing into this realm, fully balanced and aware of the powers at play, including states that can arise astrologically and elementally (which is to say, changing the relative distance of geometric points vis a vis Chokmah, using the elements–this is a deep metaphor about the heart). I’m also told that to some degree this can be done with time (Saturn).
I express my gratitude. The angels say that there’s nothing for this particular scrying, and thus ends the vision.
Sunset: Similar procedure. Pain, depression, anxiety, about halfway between the prior scrying session and this one. Took anxiolytic.
The angels point out that I have kept the lotus-rose as a focus to magnetize me to the path to the portal into the world of Adam Qadmon. The angels advise that I stay on this path. “Don’t revert back, don’t deviate in any direction.”
The angels ask me to reflect on the rotation of the near-spherical consciousness which orbits this portal. They say that as long as I retain this spherical consciousness, that the rotation that I’m going won’t matter so much. Although today was a bit trying, they note, it’s an important reminder to continue to stay focused on this path, and on the world of Adam Qadmon. If I’m truly to make this transition, then I really shouldn’t be sidelined by events such as today’s. There will be other days that will be even more difficult, they comment. I take this to heart, and “in heart,” as it were. The angels say that the only way to get around the reality of daily difficulties is to work on the heart, and come from the heart, and to be pulled forward as by the heart.
At this point I realize that I haven’t called the zodiacal kings or the governors; the angels say that this is okay. I see some energy from the rotation of this sphere, coming as a result of proximity to this portal of Adam Qadmon. It’s a whirlwind (looking not unlike the effect of sling rings of Doctor Strange comics). Others are being drawn into this energy. It’s like I can’t help myself, I reply: I continue that motion. “That’s okay,” reply the angels. “That’s the circumference: you are tending to the circumference. Just ensure that your heart is aligned, dead center, to the portal, exactly to the path.”
I decide to vibrate the kings’ and governors’ names now. The angels say that this act was good, and that it heightened their power a bit, and to just always do so to just ensure that every part of the ritual includes calling from this path to the world of Adam Qadmon. Obviously, this is paramount to them now.
Now the angels explain that there’s only so much that they can show me without my getting pulled on this path in even more (i.e., to a later Aethyr before its time). They tell me to have my heart at ease: this is the right path. They bid me continue to stay focused: anything to do with the elements that they have to show me, if given early, will pull me into the event horizon of the portal into the realm of Adam Qadmon. Each part of this process needs to be taken slowly and deliberately. Even though these scrying sessions seem short, there’s a lot of karma being burned off, a lot of realignment, a lot of karma being played out. That allows me to continue directly forward, they advise. The angels tell me not to worry: my karma is being safeguarded right now, and to just not accrue new karma. These steps are causing it to be “burned off” or “played out,” so that I can go dead center into the portal without being imbalanced.
I express my gratitude to the angels, and ask if there’s anything else. “You can always take on the spherical consciousness” gained from my previous scrying sessions, they note, without actually invoking these higher Aethyrs, so if I wish to be more balanced, I may do that. “Just don’t try to leap ahead anymore” during the visions of the actual Aethyr scryings. They will actively block that.
With that, they close the vision, and I give my heartfelt thanks to the angels.
Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of ZEN. Call to King BALIGON according to previously described methods.
I focus in on the transparent sphere/spherical heart. I look in at it; I’m given a gentle hand by Amitabha Buddha. It’s spinning around in several dimensions, which is to say about individual rays from a common origin.
I see a vast opening in the sky above me. A dark cloudy being emerges. I repeat the governors’ and king’s names. I am lifted up by the four of them to this being, who is massive. This is the angel alluded to yesterday. Amitabha Buddha gives me an affirming gesture. I bow to this angel. The angel seems male; it points to my right, where I see a vertical slit in the sky, from which light pours forth. Souls proceed forth through it into this world.
I mention that I don’t know this angel’s name. He says that my HGA does; I see it by individual letters; there’s a catch as to whether the eighth letter should be a B or G–my HGA causes the back of my tongue to rise–it’s a G: RASTORIGLAX.
Rastoriglax tells me that the beings coming through this slit are aliens. Now there’s an inversion: rather than seeking to be a good guest, I now must also take on the mantle of a good host. I welcome them all, and I thank Rastoriglax for showing them to me. He gestures to my left, and I see dark vessel, which looks like a shallow river tour boat. Now, I’m told, this vessel needs to settle in the Earth. I’m shown my home, but also the local Buddhist center, as a place for these beings to disembark and rest.
My first thought is what they could eat; Rastoriglax says that human food and especially processed food will be acceptable. I consider water and other essentials: I’m told that they are human-alien hybrids, and they will try to have physiology that can accommodate Earth nutrients and such. These 5+D beings (perhaps 7D) have acclimated themselves as much to 4D reality as they can. They will then be able to better adapt to their environment.
Rastoriglax gives me a dark bed, a dark leaf in which I lie down like a hammock. I nestle in there like a cocoon. “It’s like you dark for a little while to the public,” and then you come out more luminous. You’ll be traversing several worlds (realms), he says: Earth, Fae, Angelic, and Buddha realms. Hence, I will be a Traveler. I bow deeply, and he says not to, so I don’t.
The governors and king return me–this was the entirety of this experience.
Thus ends the vision.
Noon: Similar procedure. I circulate the transparent heart, described yesterday. I see multiple hearts such as this come at me, glowing, such as when I’m in a high-speed subway car. Now they are coming at me so fast that it seems like vibrating or flickering light. I see a black monster appear, which looks like unto a lurker in the Dragonborn DLC of Skyrim. It’s kind of black and slimy, dripping off goo. It’s approaching me.
I look in lovingkindness past it, and I notice he seems to be dragging something behind him. It’s some kind of binding, so I have a conversation with it. I get deep into conversation with it, briefly glimpsing a Buddha, (I can’t tell which one), and the monster suddenly opens up as a result of my conversation, or is unfurled into dark bandages which strain out from a single point. It’s a binding of badly aligned dimensionality. I consider doing the courtesy of asking whether he’d like it undone, but I just go ahead and use my heart to do so and to rearrange it. In so doing, it turns into a female figure, a queen, who must remain in her castle (but hey! at least not a monster anymore). She’s a very luminescent spirit and both grateful and understanding her being bound to the castle and thus cannot leave. At least she can see the outside world and hear tales of it, or have parts of the outside world brought to her.
This is a far better condition for her, she says, and this is some of the ability that I will have to untwist and to reconfigure confusing things in different realms. They will behave better on account of beings becoming aware of the potential within them. I will make the Black Iron Prison seem like unto a palace, she says.
She’s grateful for this, and she offers me a jewel; at first it seems white as she hands it to me, but my taking it turns it red. She says it’s a Wish-Fulfilling Jewel like unto Red Tara, and now I see Her statue in my mind. I ask her if she has any advice and she says she does not. I say okay, and am careful phrase: “Without impinging on anyone’s Will, I ask that I come into such a perspective that I will always be behaving such that all can achieve enlightenment with the most ideal mix of speed and minimal harm, such as all who would inspect it after the fact would come to a consensus that yes, indeed, this was the appropriate mix of speed and harm reduction.” She thinks the wording is acceptable, and the jewel disappears. I express my gratitude for this.
The four angels lead me, one each at my arm, one by both of my feet, and one by my heart, in a tetrahedral formation. My heart becomes a red point. I see a lot opening up in front of me. It’s a psychedelic vision, like the tunnel of light one sees in an NDE. I express gratitude, acceptance, and satisfaction. I feel very much at peace.
I ask what else I may see, and the angels encourage me to instead just enjoy for a moment, so I do. It’s like I come up to the heavens and my back is against a gentle parabola, looking down on Earth as though I’m in a hammock. It’s like I get to sleep here for 100 years without worry, and watch the Earth beneath me. I see my astral form spread out and become part of the cocoon about the Earth, and I am protected by it as well.
I express gentle gratitude. They note they just wanted to help me chill out. I smile.
The vision ends.
Sunset: Similar procedure.
Some issues with distractions earlier on; I redouble my efforts to open the heart and generate compassion from this transparent sphere-heart. There continue to be distractions but I worry less about them as I go: it’s like the volume of a distracting song gets turned up, each time I’m scrying and approach ZAX. You need to simply accept that it will be there and it will be distracting, but go forward with the same modus operandi.
RASTORIGLAX takes me up into heaven, and takes me to the slit in the sky again. Seeing him again, he looks more like unto the aforementioned lurker, with the dark drippings. So I ask whether he’s Red Tara, and he denies this. I’m confused and continue to approach him with this compassion. There’s something complicated about him. The sense is that there’s unused potential here: this is the potential of the Abyss itself that I’m sensing, for it to be rewired. It’s confusing, but having been on the other side of it, and understanding the true compassionate hearts which lie beyond it, it’s very complicated. I get the sense that there could be a rainbow jewel within him.
I decide to give it a shot. The four angels (Governors Nabaomi, Zafasai, and Yalpamb, and King BALIGON) are quite keen to help me. They’re with me, in the interior of RASTORIGLAX, which is like a deeper, more complicated core of a lurker. I arrange our configuration; King BALIGON is already trying to work with my heart, which is a red point to a tetrahedron–they cut this short. “This is going to be seven days’ worth of work, and on the eighth day, there may be some shift,” that suddenly I will open up this potential within ZAX on that day. They’re glad that I’m seeing it.
I pragmatically ask whether there’s any way to lay a foundation. They say to continue with the scryings, and take out certain points from Rastoriglax that that seem like they need to be understood, and they will work on them overnight, and then in the morning, these points will shift into something to be grokked. I feel a tingling in between my right shoulder blade and spine.
There’s something like unto curing the Fisher King with this quest. This is like unto seeing unique potential within a gifted child to do something amazing, such as to win a Field’s Medal. Rastoriglax is like, “This is exactly what I need,” with a dry “about time” tone. I get the sense that he is like the light version of the archdemon of the Abyss.
The angels could show me around more, but I get the sense that when something quite large is hit on, they understand that they can dispense with tourist season. I ask for assistance from the Divine in this task, and continue to generate hyperfocused compassion.
I was honored to be a guest on Praxis behind the Obscure with Ryan. We had an in-depth discussion about angelic magic, specifically on getting started with Enochian, working with the Holy Guardian Angel, and crossing the Abyss. I hope you can check it out. Enjoy!
It’s pretty easy to look at Enochian as a religion, and honestly, I am wondering whether it’s time to call it that. Jason Louv certainly concludes that this was the angels’ goal: a one-world religion. It fuses communicating and working with angels (angels themselves working on behalf of God), magick (an ability to manipulate reality, in this case via Divine power), and devotion to the Divine. Via the Aethyrs, ultimately (i.e., in LIL), these all fuse with union with the Divine, forever changing the consciousness of the practitioner.
It is the latter of these–a procedure that provides union (i.e., yoga) with the Divine (and therefore the universe)–that gives Enochian its power. This power is frightening and heretical to most Western Christian denominations (I cannot speak to Eastern Orthodox Churches). After all, Jesus has made humanity right with God, provided we recognize him as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one comes to the Father except by/through” Him (John 14:6). Note that Jesus uses the present tense–not “no one will ever come to the Father,” but “no one comes to the Father.” Am I stretching too much here, inferring too much about what Jesus says about the relationship with God and when? Read on: interestingly, Jesus goes on to say that He is in the Father and vice versa, that he will provide another advocate (i.e., one like Jesus, whom Jesus calls “the Spirit of Truth,” thought in theological terms by most to mean the Holy Spirit), who will be in the disciples. This suggests, frankly, that the Father continues to be in the disciples, giving them union with God. He then continues to say “I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” An awful lot of sharing of this Divinity, wouldn’t you say? It’s almost as if union with the Divine is the whole point here.
The frightening heresy to denominations in these verses is that God is in the heart of a believer, yet we are still human. We should not aspire to be Divine, the thinking goes, but some unclear version of similarity with the Divine. To that I say–that’s not how it works, at least in Enochian. In Enochian, you learn the heavenly and, ultimately, Divine nature we already are, after using each Aethyr to slowly peel back ego-based delusion. It is this delusion of the ego that feeds the dependency upon the hierarchy of authority.
How does Enochian fit into the grand scheme of other religions? It’s a different form of esoteric Christianity from Gnosticism in that there isn’t some grand conspiracy of cosmic beings who are keeping us deluded, but rather, our own thinking and ego- and mind-identification. It certainly has a deity, but this deity is systemic to the universe (as shown through its identification with mathematics; this suggest pantheism or panentheism), and we are a part of the universe. It may be trite to say that everything is divine, but the point of Enochian is to learn exactly what that means. It is a “suchness.” It is Tathata. Understanding (Binah) this means learning to let go of other kinds of thinking and being, and instead become what one truly is: divine, in all the glory of divinity. Enochian cosmology has excellent, but probably not always perfect, complementarity with Buddhism and other Eastern traditions. Regardless, I am of the view that Enochian, and specifically the Enochian language in general prayers and in modifications made to the 19th Enochian Call to the Aethyrs, can be used especially well to produce the esoteric attainments or states of these and likely other religions.
If Enochian is a religion, it’s highly personal. It comes from personal revelation and interaction with the angelic and the Divine. For Westerners especially, it’s about knowing your place in the cosmic order (and probably getting therapy). One becomes better aligned with the world and every realm one interacts with, yet this reflects the changes to perspective and therefore one’s reactions, all due to Divine revelation. In this sense, it’s not dogmatic, but it’s also not a mere spiritual practice. It probably belongs as a course in Universalist religions of all stripes. Obviously, this would mean that it is fundamentally compatible with most other religions.
