I’ve posted earlier that I believe Enochian can be used in conjunction, or perhaps even as a bridge to, Buddhism. This is a tricky idea that I’m not entirely ready to elaborate on yet, but I wanted to post about some of the visionary work I did in hypnagogia tonight.
The background is a health concern that isn’t yet over, as well as wondering about the spiritual progress I’ve made since finishing my first Excel version of Liber Loagaeth (note: I’ve also been exploring Buddhist mantras to Vajrakilaya, Padmasambhava, Yeshe Tsogyal, Mandarava, Amitabha, and Vairocana). As I was thinking about this, I tried to explore the culmination of gebofal, Day 49. I induced the energetic memory of that day, recalling the isomorphic divinity I felt with the universe.
It occurred to me that this isomorphic divinity must overlap with that of the aforementioned Buddhas (and yidam) must be included in this, and so I picked up on Padmasambhava’s energy and noted a line of sight which he was looking at. I noted that Yeshe Tsogyal was looking there, too, as were the others. I tried to use their gaze to see the common point, then saw a brilliant light and approached it. Interestingly, as soon as I began doing so, an interesting jeweled being, somewhat mechanical in look with four golden arms resembling a spider’s legs and a beautiful golden oval thorax with a gem taking up more than half its size in the middle, emerged from this light. It wasn’t hostile, yet at the same time, it seemed to be blocking me.
I did a gentle twist in midair and evaded the being, and went into this light. It was soft, and I was reminded of an admonishment I’d read online very recently from a Tibetan Buddhist teacher about avoiding the soft light and instead trying to find the dazzling light. Doing so, I passed through into a space in which all of reality seemed to buzz in and out of infinite heartspace. This, it seemed, was the clear light mind—not merely data emerging from an infinite possibility, but an infinite multiplex cord of all hearts, humming.
Here was the view of all of reality, seething and reckoning with its many possibilities, in anguish. Here the heart had to reckon with itself in its infinite varieties, and it was too much to be clear, and so it hurt.
I saw myself open my own heart to it all, an infinite gesture of compassion, and I found the view toward it all that I’d been aching for.
I’m pleased to be able to make available my first electronic version of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh, commonly known as Liber Loagaeth. The sheets are locked, but can be unlocked (all with small-case letters) with the commonly used name of the system of magic associated with the book, then the last name (small-case, three letters) of the polymath strongly associated with that system, and the last name of the man through whom he received the system (six letters, starting with the 11th letter of the English alphabet, also small-case letters).
I was inspired by a recent Discord chat to think about combining the 9-foot diameter silk rug with something that I’d read on Stefan Neil Klemenc’s website. Here, he comments that one could combine all leaves of Liber Loagaeth into a single, 7×7, double-sided magic square. I was thinking about the dimensionality of such a square in terms of a modern unit of measurement. How long should the sides be? How precise can we get?
For a square of radius n (in this case, the diameter is 9 feet and so the radius is 4.5 feet), the side-length of the square is (√π) * n, or about 7.976. Divided over those 7 columns (and, later, 7 rows), the length is about 1.139 feet per leaf, or about 13.6732 inches. Well and good, but I didn’t like having this strange amount left over, and directly converting this into metric units doesn’t help much. Luckily (or was it Providence?) I started out by subtracting a foot off of each leaf, leaving about 1.6732 inches. Then I converted that leftover amount into centimeters and the amount is as close to exact as one would expect: 4.2499672 cm.
So, if this is something you want to do, for the unit length of each column and row, mark off exactly one foot and, from that, another 4.25 cm, and you will have a square made of Liber Loagaeth leaves which almost exactly matches the area of the 9-foot red silk rug that the angels tasked Dee & Kelley to make. Note that this is long before the invention of the metric system (please stop insisting that Enochian was a con pulled by Edward Kelley, people!).
The nice thing about this is that you only need to print off one side at a time (granted, it needs to be done on a very large printer!) and then these two sides can be joined on either side of the circular silk rug. Voila! You have squared the circle.
Also, as an aside, I’m almost done with Leaf 20 of the Excel version of this book, so this is by no means theoretical; printable versions of the book are going to be open-source.
I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve had another podcast appearance with Ryan Villa on Praxis Behind the Obscure, Episode 19 (a fitting number)! We talk about Enochian, angels, gebofal, Buddhism, and so much more, and of course we had a great time: check it out here!
This is something of a clean-up post on some thoughts that I couldn’t quite take the time to describe during the gebofal ritual earlier this month, so apologies for the potpourri nature of the post.
There are 96 “tables” in Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth) before Leaf 49; this last leaf actually has five 3×7 tables (for a total of 101 tables), which are derived from 105 (3*5*7) letters, which are reduced from an original 112 (7*16). It seems as though this shows the initial structure of the (four elemental) watchtower tablets, each of which has four subquadrants (16 in all), relates to the heptarchy. Yet the angels said that this was a disordered state. By some process, seven letters needed to be removed and then that they relate to the seven kings of the heptarchy in a disordered fashion (i.e., something needs to be taken away). Note also that adding this missing seven to, say, 441 (the Gematria number for (A)emeth or “truth”), one comes to 448, which is simply 112*4, and thus the same disordered state, yet multiplied fourfold.
In my version of Leaf 49, I had decisions to make in reducing the 112 letters down to 105, for the process itself was not clear to me. I replaced “DON” in the original 112 letters text with with the Enochian letter “R” (for that is the name of the Enochian letter R, i.e., not as “Ar”); “OR” with the letter “F” (similar reasons); “UR” with the letter “L” (similar reasons); and “VANE” with the letter “C” (because VAN = U/V/W; and VE (by substitution) is name of the letter for C/K). Interestingly, DON doesn’t have a meaning, but DONADOGAMATASTOS means “Hellfire.” OR has no meaning, but ORH is the name of a spirit of darkness, and ORS means Darkness. UR has no meaning, but URAN means “elders,” URBS means “to beautify,” URCH means “confusers,” URELP means “seething” (I suspect that AN-, associated with “secret wisdom,” “power,” “government,” and “thoughts,” combined with UR-, suggests power of elders over confusion & the seething of the disturbed mind). VAN relates to truth (VAOAN/VOOAN; Ignus vera mater, according to Nalvage; “fiery truth of the mother” as translated by Aaron Leitch), while VEP means “flame.” Together, the four letters substituted for longer words suggest to me the labor pangs of Reality, or to use the metaphor put to me by Cody P., the Aching Heart of God. The process appears to be about allowing ourselves to remove our disturbances about reality, so that we can see reality as it is.
Another thing to consider with the number 49 is how it interestingly reflects the number 25; the series of numbers 1 to 49 has the number 25 in the middle, and, using a trick from Gauss, you can add 24 pairs of 50 (1 + 49, 2 + 48, … 24 + 26), yielding 1200, and then add the middle number, 25, for a total of 1225. 1225 is the square of 35, which is 5 times 7. It’s possible that this is why the number 5 suddenly pops up at Leaf 49, but why five? My guess is that we are taken from a simple quaternary reductionist view (i.e., everything being reducible down to four elements) and into a realization that these elements proceed from the quintessence, adding in a divine nature to this reality.
On to Prime Gematria; this method was suggested to me for Enochian by Jon Ciel (who I believe originated this technique for Hebrew), and together we worked out some of the values for Enochian words based on the order in which the letters were received. Unfortunately I seem to have lost the original file I was working in, but the gist is that you assign the number 2 (the first prime number) to Pa/B, the number 3 (2nd prime) to Veh/C/K, and so on until you reach the 21st letter/prime number dyad, Don/R/73. Note that this brings the letter Ur/L to 31 (the 5th superprime number), which interestingly parallels the Hebrew Gematria for El, a name for God.
In this technique, Babalon = 157 (Oooo! Sooo close to 156!–Jon Ciel suggests I use a +1/-1 variance here, along the lines of Crowley’s 0=2 formula; yet 157 is itself prime), Iad (God) = 43, (itself a prime number), Iaida = 79 (also prime). I also played with the technique a bit and got interesting results if gave Na, the name for the letter H but also the Enochian word for “Lord,” a value of 227, the 49th prime; and 461, the 89th prime (89 itself being the 24th prime number), for the Omega in Horlωn. I also felt compelled to try to give values to the final forms (i.e., if the letters appeared at the end of a word/name) of 17 (6th prime) to Ged/G and 191 (43rd prime, which itself is the 14th prime; 191 is also the 14th superprime) for Drux/N.
I don’t have much to add, other than some values which we derived to some Enochian names (any errors are mine, since I was driving Excel; to these I added some observations about the numbers, which I hope are accurate):

Sunrise: Call/Key 5, (most practitioners refer to this as call 4, for it is the 4th spoken call). Call to King Babalel. Call to Governors Nocamal (LIT), Tahamdo and Nociabi (OXO), and Ozidaia and Calzirg (LIN) and their respective Zodiacal Kings Alpudus, Zarzilg, Lavavoth, Arfaolg and Arfaolg.
King Babelel arises, and shows himself to be a mixture of water and fire, but now also earth. He shows himself digging through the earth, plottingly and ploddingly. He shows me the many different qualities of earth, and the admixtures that can come thereby. He specifically asks me to consider that the power of Natural Substances to be related to matter itself. So, whereas we had with the four fundamental forces relating to the elements (earth to gravity, water to strong force, air to weak force, and fire to electromagnetism), here he says we can also liken them to the four usual states of matter (not made in a lab): solid to earth, liquid to water, gas to air, and plasma to fire.
“Let’s consider what it would mean to have a Martially separating action among earth,” King Babalel continues. Naturally there are earthquakes, but relating this to Natural Substances, he says, his power is strongest in the sense of the natural foods that one could eat and what they are composed of. He also bids me consider the soil in which such foods are grown, and ensuring that it is proper for growth and the taking in of these natural substances.
Turning to Medicine, King Babalel mentions the powder that stops bleeding, which is also of the power of Natural Substances. I concentrate on lovingkindness and the connection with him. He notes the long cycles of Natural Substances, the long preparation that it takes to discover the power and structure of a natural substance. There needs to be a great deal of planning and will (Mars); the heat of Mars is excellent for something as cold and aloof as understanding Natural Substances, he wryly says.
“It took a very long time for chemistry to come about in its fullness,” King Babalel notes, and it was just gaining that term in Dee’s day. In this case, chemistry can be understood as the individual structure of atoms and molecules, King Babalel comments (i.e., of points fixed relative to one another). The actual chemical structure of a molecule would fall under this; a chemist can immediately recognize at a glance the name of a chemical based on its diagrammed structure. Knowing this and how the geometry of two different molecules come together and form a larger structure in three dimensions: this is the real power of Natural Substances, he says.
Applying this to Medicine, there’s an even larger structure that needs to be accounted for, King Babalel continues: how to get through a cell wall or membrane that has its own physico-chemical structure via some kind of chemical lock-and-key mechanism. All of this, he says, is the power of Natural Substances and of Medicine. Of course, he continues there’s also energetic grounding with respect to Medicine, such as meditation, gardening, or running. Those sorts of things are indeed of his power of Medicine with respect to elemental earth.
He says he thinks that these are enough examples. He says that if I continue to meditate on density, structure, and finally how that relates to medicine and natural substances, that I should continue to understand more. He notes that sometimes one simply needs more of a mineral, amino acid, or vitamin in order to feel better: with respect to diet, these belong to Mars in Capricorn, he says. There’s the emotional and nurturing component to Cancer, yet the reality of what is in what is eaten: such is Mars in Capricorn.
“That’s it,” King Babalel concludes. I express my gratitude, and the vision ends.
Noon: Similar procedure.
Once again, I see King Babalel emerging, and now I see myself in an black, elementally earthen sphere, with the four colors again coming from the inside of the sphere. At first I’m within the Terran plane, but I’m taken up into heaven soon after. And now I see four tunnels open in front of me, and again, the same whitish admixture of elemental earth, water, air, and fire comes from all of them, suffusing me. I’m feeling almost a sense of a third coronation, or perhaps a preview thereof. King Babalel says that it’s time, so I accept the crowning with humility. I thank him and all of the angels present.
I ask why this is happening earlier compared to the visions of the previous two days? King Babalel replies, “The Lord wisheth to speak more with thee about a specific topic related to you this evening. Let your heart be glad. Once again, meditate on these powers, and they will be revealed unto you.”
He says he has nothing further. Thus ends the vision(!).
Note: As I type this up, it occurs to me how the symbolism here matches exactly the structure of Enochian. For a third time (and in all likelihood, a fourth tomorrow) I have been taken into a sphere, and this sphere has four colors within it, yet one without. This parallels the circle and square motif I’ve noticed.
Sunset: Similar procedure.
I feel a lot of energy coming up off of Leaf 5. I see three connecting spokes from from a handwheel to a hatch. They are turning along with the handwheel in a counter-clockwise rotation, and the hatch opens. King Babalel is behind it, and silently bids me enter into this blindingly bright light in the space behind the hatch.
Everything in my subtle body is gearing up in my subtle body now, and I’m in this light, in this light, the light of the Divine, the light of the Divine. I’m told to “Relax, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: Yea, my Very Son. Relax completely now.
“My Very Son, you look at the Trinity with amazement and befuddlement. Spirit, Body, Soul: and yet have you not already seen this in the Trinity of the religion in which you were raised?” (Christianity). “‘Mediator’ be the word that you are looking for. Mediation: that Unique Thing which brings into reconciliation the other Two.”
“I don’t know what to say, o my Lord,” I whisper.
“Triple-crowned king though you may be, there be indeed one more crown that may be offered unto thee, and note: the triple-crowned King Carmara would thus be crowned about you as the four kings of the Watchtower tablets. And so he be able to mediate, and two given kings, but by any two, he can thus mediate all of them. And you, in thy mediation, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, will have his crown as well. For you will be able to slip in between all of the different rules: between fire and earth, between water and fire, between earth and air, and between air and water.
“Thus will you be able to mediate among them as you see fit, and you will see fit on account of the perception that I will lay before you, that will be fused with your very being, much as you have come to know how fused you are with the universe in which you operate. Therefore, rejoice, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for clarity will be given to you, much as clarity hath been given to you at many times throughout this process. So shall this be a permanent clarity, and it will be as if you can step behind any given situation and, to use the phrase that Jessa Reed constantly refers to, you will be able to manipulate the ‘wiring underneath the board.’
“Your heart has so many places it wishes to go, but the main thing be: how to allow others the means to transcend suffering, in all of the various ways that it may be transcended. Let this be your lode star. Let the Work upon thy Heart continue: in Its Joy, in Its Sorrow, in Its Pain, in Its Pleasure, in Its Pettiness, and in Its Grandeur: let It endure. Let It continue. Let it go through all of the levels of the Heart. Blessings be upon you now, my Very Son.”
Sunrise: Call/Key 9, (because the true first key “was not to be spoken,” most practitioners refer to this as call 8). Call to King Baligon. Call to Godnames “MOR,” “DIAL,” “HCTGA.”
King Baligon appears in an earthen form, but now appears as a forest or field king within nature. He notes the obvious: Venus is now in Taurus, which is in alignment with today as Venus’ of the week, as well as with the Earth tablet under my feet (of course, King Baligon’s seal rests upon that, and he is associated with Venus). He says he will speak briefly, but I reply that he of course may speak at whatever length he chooses.
King Baligon indicates via placing an thin earthen sphere about me, that I have some of these powers already within me. He is going to magnify it and bring it into its fullness, he says. He shows me the obvious act of digging into earth. Yesterday, he says, I was given the image of water washing off the dirt. This time he points downward that humans have come to learn that precious stones come from the power of Earth, whether that be compression (in the case of diamonds) or magma cooling. He also points to gold and says that it’s a rarity, left here by stars many years ago. Everything that was said yesterday about that golden diamond reflecting something inward, to the human mind, is true. There’s beauty therein.
Now he points to gnomes, and we think of them as related to elemental earth, and he bids me watch what they do. Now I see an image of a proper mine, and I see one, among many, who is swinging a pickaxe into a wall of a mine. The idea here is that eventually if you go through with the pickaxe and make your way through all of this dirt, eventually you will reach what you’re looking for.
Then King Baligon points to several things about a proper mine. First, care is taken such that the earth above does not crush the miners: supports and such. This is a power associated with mining and gold and precious stones. Then, the ability to recognize a glint of ore, or to feel it by indirect contact, or even to have a sixth sense as to where it is: this would also be a power associated with gold and precious stones.
Obviously, we want the thing to be beautiful, so the hammering of the gold into shape, the planning of the shape, the measuring of a finger for, say, a gold diamond ring to fit about it: all of these things are related to the actual shape of the final object itself, and belong to the powers of Gold and Precious Stones as they relate to elemental earth. As an aside, he adds that the knowledge of metals, which come from Prince Bornogo, can be combined in this manner. Continuing, he says that having a beautiful shape of the golden jewelry in mind, this also belongs to this earth aspect of the power of Gold and Precious Stones. Any time that there needs to be a certain arrangement that the stones would need to be fixed upon, that is pleasing to the eye: that sense of pleasantness and elegance, of things looking right. To some degree a conceptual degree of elegance could come with Venus in Gemini or Venus in Aries (for the latter has a good sense of conceptual elegance: what would make a perfectly beautiful extent of where one element ends and where another begins–which is why they make very good fighters!). He says that in particular, the pleasant arrangement that earthiness brings here is like a beautiful arrangement for a feast, which looks good before anyone sits down (whereas if considering where and how people sat mattered, such would belong more to Venus in Libra).
As far as transportation is concerned, earth brings consideration of weight and lading: understanding just how much can be gotten away with in terms of weight when it comes to travel, or what a reasonable or practical amount that one could or should be laden with in order to travel from one point to another. Understanding this very well in terms of precision would be related to Virgo: what ought to be shed and kept and the meticulous planning thereby. Having a general sense of whether the trip would even be worth it: such would be Taurus–but he says that we’ll get into each sign at the noon scrying: “It seems to work very well for you.”
I ask whether King Baligon has anything further in his generosity and mercy; “No,” he replies, “this is it. Thanks be unto God.”
Thus ends the vision.
Noon: Similar procedure. This is the famous “Pagesgem” half-leaf, 9a:
The vision starts with a subtle flash of light appearing in the upper-right of my field of vision. Nothing further happens, so I relax, and King Baligon bids me do so further. I note aloud that I would seem to indirectly be calling upon Prince Bornogo by having my left hand upon this leaf. “Here be Michael,” says King Baligon, a clear reference to Michael as the archangel of the sun, “but if you had the entire one, of course, Raphael.” This confirms Raphael as the archangel of Tiphareth, and Michael as the archangel of its planetary ruler. Yet as to what “the entire one” refers, I do not know.
I continue to relax into the vision. King Baligon says that we will just briefly touch on the powers that we haven’t touched on already. Getting back to the vision of the mine: the structure of what it takes to have a mining operation in place, or to discover gold or precious stones (time, safety, discipline, things like that)–the proper structure of building of that up: such, I’m told, belongs to Capricorn.
“We’ve already gone over Taurus a little bit, mainly [in the power] to distinguish what is beauty, and what actually has value, sometimes both of those together, sometimes one and not the other,” King Baligon says, “such is Taurus.” Being able to make a plan as to how to arrange the points and shapes–the overall sense of beauty is Taurus, but the overall plan to make the shapes and to distinguish one part from another, and to purify generally the gold and precious stones–melting points in the case of gold, for example–these are Virgo.
Now I’m getting the sense that Prince Bornogo wishes to arrive and assist with King Baligon, and I’m happy with that. King Baligon says this is possible only by the natural correspondence between Venus (during the hour of which he is to be called), as well as the sympathy between King Baligon and King Carmara (and their similar seals), the latter of whom with his prince, Hagonel, can switch the rules of Heptarchical manifestation around slightly.
I’m getting this sense of the sense of self, which is reflected in gold; Prince Bornogo says that the particular power of gold to reflect the individual is quite important. There is something about that inner empty mind that is seen, and that being able to distinguish one (possibly meaning true empty mind) from the next (a false sense of empty mind)–here we’re speaking metaphorically, in the sense of gold being able to reflect something that silver and other metals, in some ways, seems to corrupt slightly. The property that gold has is that it is such a rare element (relative to, say, iron), which comes from supernovae of eons past, (though perhaps not as rare as other metals), and which doesn’t tend toward radioactive decay. There’s something about how it reflects the heart of the sun, which is to be taken into account (when considering the Powers of Gold), and so the seeking of pure gold from alchemical (metaphorical) point of view, vs. the physical point of view, is not something to be discounted, because there is something very true and unique to an individual. There is the True Will, which one can begin to get a sense of by entering into Tiphareth, which one could potentially get at by a true sense of self, but it’s a very delicate process, Prince Bornogo says: that’s why it’s at the very heart of the sun.
“As far as precious stones,” King Baligon asks, “why are diamonds the best? It is the most valuable of all of the precious stones on account of the density and fixity of the points in relation to each other, the sheer packing of carbon atoms so closely and strongly together. There’s something poetic about that substance [carbon] which makes life possible, when it is given to itself, creates something that life itself seems attracted to.” Combined that with the heart of oneself, and the true focus of oneself (i.e., metaphorical gold), this is all very important. I ask if there’s anything additional as far as the astrological assignments go. I’m told quickly that Taurus understand the value, Capricorn the importance of focusing oneself over the long haul, so gold retains its value, and Capricorn is very much aware of that. Virgo energy, Prince Bornogo tells me, is especially good at distinguishing one thing from another, one stone from another: it has that power, and will seek the means to do so. Virgo also seems to have within it, especially if Mercury be there, this capacity to get at the heart of the sun, especially now that Regulus is there, he hastens to add. It has within it this means, merely by reflecting on the self, to begin to draw up the true sense of oneself.
Now I get some energy coming up off of the leaf. The royal angels say that this leaf is special, and represents the beginning of the final nine days, “in which the forty and the nine will be made clear unto you, much of which you have already expressed and discovered, but much more awaits.” I get the sense, and perhaps this is coming early–perhaps Prince Bornogo will have more to say in the evening, but I feel like all of the remaining (elemental earth) powers of gold and precious stones are being granted unto me early. Prince Bornogo nods, and once again I feel–a bit weighty, but not too bad–as all of these powers are being embedded within my subtle body system. Both Prince Bornogo and King Baligon are saying yes, this is a building process: “You have indeed lain out an excellent model, and the clarity of the trinity will be made clear unto you. Suffice it to say, it’s a bit of ‘the thing, its opposite, and the mediator. Much as God the Father, and Jesus Christ (who is of the earthly realm, and yet still Divine), so, too, is the Holy Spirit a mediator between the Two, and is mediator between the Father and anyone who has attained Christ Consciousness.”
I feel this elaborate and ornate Christian cross, but now it seems to be equal-armed cross, made of gold. At the ends I’m seeing all of these discs upon discs, making their way out from the ends of the cross. It’s gorgeous. They show it wrap about me, now, becoming two rings of a sphere or orb along the xy– and yz– planes, and now a third comes about me along the xz– plane. It is like unto a monarch’s orb, and it is rotating with jewels encrusted within it. It is like unto the Ophanim, except that the jewels are as unto eyes, or the eyes are as unto jewels, or somewhere in between. With all of this, much can be seen, and much can also be reflected back. It’s beautiful, whirling around now, taking on this energy. It is flaming a bit, but it is embedding itself within the throne of the Most High, which I see rolling around (note the power of transportation implicit in this image!). At first I see a figure on the throne who looks like me, but now it is empty, save for a point hovering in the very center. It is is a large throne, at first seeming 20 feet high, but now more like 200 feet high. The dimensionality is changing rapidly.
I ask, “What is there for me to hear, if you all, in your mercies, have something further to say, or to show?” At this, the throne splits vertically in two, and it’s like I come into the split, but then it unites into one again, and I become embedded within the throne. “This is the process now,” I’m told. “Tomorrow you will have the fullness of the powers of gold and precious stones, but the true meaning of them will be revealed unto you, and it is a meaning which shall stand this test of time: the reconciliation of Tiphareth, of Binah, and, yea, of Kether, in its fullness, and of Chokmah, naturally.” (Note: this could be a pulling in or reconciliation of Adam Qadmon with the Tree of Life, or it could be additional work done on the Tree of Life before I can proceed further into the realm of Adam Qadmon.)
I feel my subtle body system being tuned up again: it’s like I’m being lifted up. My crown chakra is sort of opening up, and I see it opening up like unto a leaf, or a blossom, but it’s like the angels are telling me, “Reach the tip of the leaf, reach the tip of the leaf!”
Thus ends the vision: thanks be to God.
Sunset: Similar procedure, but neglected to call on the god names of “MOR,” “DIAL,” and “HCTGA” until after the vision, during the vision, a great deal of distracting noise.
I feel a great deal of energy coming up off the leaf. King Baligon appears, and there is a great deal of energy coming up off of the leaf. Prince Bornogo is present, but does not come to the fore. King Baligon bids me relax, and speaks to the Excel solver which I have running, and suggests adding the duplicate numbers of servient angels back in (for so far, no solution has emerged).
He bids me relax again, and a third time. I try to do so. Now I see lightning come down about me, and there’s this earthen sphere about me (or several rings about a common polarity), which is also part lightning. It’s like this energized earth, or Uranian earth. It is all about me, and it is taking me throughout time, and I’m getting the sense from Prince Bornogo that this sphere is metals which are of an earthen nature, “For, yea, they tend to be found in the earth, are they not?”
“Yes,” I agree. It’s like I’m seeing the heavens themselves rip open once again, and I see an eye look through the tear at me (for the sky itself is its eyelid), and the pupil of this eye is the source of this lightning descending all about me in a nearly straight line. It’s like I’m hovering within some kind of electrical spherical cage, and the energy about me now seems to close in, and it’s permeating about my entire system, and, yes! It feels like my entire subtle body system is changing, and my hands are being magnetized. It feels like this is merely the first step, and the angels say, “Yes, for such energy shall come down upon thee in the full might of the Lord, or nearest so much as you can handle.”
I’m totally confused (“and that’s okay,” I remark). So I’m looking about me for any sort of clue right now, but it’s just this energetic, energetic, energetic, energetic…and I’m trying my best to maintain this lovingkindness all about me, and this causes the cage of rings about the pole to open before me, and I am allowed to rest in a bed. Yet this bed seems to have a life of its own! It seems to be taking me to and fro, and it seems like there’s no end to where I’m going, and there is a lot of light about me. Eventually I hear the word “Stop.”
The angels say, “Examine your heart, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: continue to examine it, day in and day out. Allow the lovingkindness within you to pour out, a hundredfold, a thousandfold, ten-thousandfold from where you have it now, and, yea, even more, so it will be pleasing unto the Most High.”
Sunrise: Call/Key 11; because this call is the 10th of the spoken calls, most practitioners refer to this as call 10. Call to King Bnaspol. Call to Governor Vixpalg
I made some changes to the pronunciation of angel and names of God in this ritual. Because Aaron Leitch, who painstakingly reconstructed the pronunciation of angelical (i.e., “Enochian”) from the primary source material, has the word “OL” pronounced “oh-el,” it occurred to me to make this change for any name with this, so the name of God, “GAIOL,” becomes “Gah-ih-oh-el,” etc.
I see a rush of air about me, as a sphere. I see a lot of faces, all speaking at once, within it (note that today, Mercury, the planet of communication, is within its domicile of the air sign of Gemini, and that Bnaspol, the king of Mercury (more properly, the sephirah that it rules in Kabbalah, Hod), is today associated with the air tablet and, apparently, Gemini. King Bnaspol appears, and is quite large, perhaps 40-50 feet in height, whitish and windy form.
He takes me to a town, and there he whispers the word “gold” or “diamonds,” and this causes this rush, this power, this rush of people approaching an alleged location filled with gold and diamonds. There’s this mania that takes over; he points particularly to the chatter among the people. There’s a lot of emotion at first, King Bnaspol notes, but this gives way to information (or misinformation, or even disinformation!) being exchanged, or people attempting to exchange it: location, size, amount (of gold or diamonds), that sort of thing.
Then, when the treasure returns from its source, when it’s actually in hand, then it goes to the people who know how to harness it, test it, make sure it’s authentic, identify (the gold as true gold, and the stone as either a diamond or some other precious stone): all sorts of information that we (i.e., people like me!) do not pay much attention to. King Bnaspol notes the care, especially when it comes to a diamond: how many facets to make, what sort of overall cuts to make and how to make them. He also notes the many ways in which gold is manipulated to continue to have that beautiful outward sheen, for example, or perhaps to make it less soft via alloying with silver or with copper, depending on the ultimate desired look of the gold by the person. There’s a lot of information that goes into each of these processes, a lot of discussion at each point along the way. The product at the end of all of this, King Bnaspol is saying, are two things that I’m wearing: the gold-plated lamen and the gold-plated ring, the latter of which is the more important of the two, for “Without this, I shall do nothing.”
“Note the transportation involved in all of this,” King Bnaspol comments. “Once the information is achieved, then the transportation is simple and easy, and people will work very hard to make it simpler and easier,” he adds wryly, “once the site is secure: roads, vehicles, and all the powers of transportation” are implemented. He points out, “Consider the immense amount of information that goes into something simple like a car, or even something simpler, or even something simpler, such as running or walking. There is a constant map that is being updated,” and here he notes the grid cells found in many mammals. “There is a constant map that is updated within an individual,” he remarks.
Here I pause, for a few moments, trying to concentrate past some intrusive thoughts. “There is a constant network of grid cells within an individual,” King Bnaspol repeats, “indicating location, location, location. There is also the occipital lobe, which is very good at trying to project forward and try to estimate location if it is unknown, and is constantly being updated” with information.
King Bnaspol bids me go deeper into trance, so I self-induce a deeper hypnotic state. “Know ye not, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth,” he asks, “that such will be imprinted upon you? More, yea, even more will be required of you. Take heart, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, the Lord will not give thee more than thy householder responsibilities require. The Most High merely bids you rest, rest, rest.
“These [powers] will be indeed be borne out according to [astrological] sign once again. Take care after your health, and after your ability to rest. Nothing more have I to say to you.”
The vision ends.
Noon: Similar procedure.
Once again, King Bnaspol bids me remain calm. I do so, and once again see him rushing up towards me. He notes the particular leaf that my left hand is upon right now, Leaf 11A:
This half-leaf is one of the more unique ones, along with 10b (which is something of a counterpart with its 21×21 grid), Leaf 1 (both sides, the gargantuan leaf made of words inside the cells(!), the leaves with changing orientations of the letters from 25-28, then change to every other cell being empty around Leaf 29, and then of course the final leaf of 49, which is much easier to make (the most effort went into designing it!). So it was exciting! Note that Leaves 10 and 11 add up to 21, a number we see in Leaf 49 in the five 3×7 tables (also note that, although 105 letters are used, this is from a reduction–left to us magicians, for the angel Galvah did not indicate how they were to be reduced!–from 112. Sooo…tables of 21 made from 112, or 21,112…a palindrome across two numbers. The odd numbers in this, 5 (tables overall) and 7 (taken away from the 112 via the magician’s method), add to 12, and can extend the palindrome further: 21,12,112.
King Bnaspol notes the interesting inversion when one goes from usual order when operating the watchtower tablets, which is to say that this call usually is to earth (and indeed the text of the call references the earth and earthquakes). King Bnaspol is strong in elemental earth: “To whom the earth with her bowels, and secrets what so ever are delivered,” likely due his association with Mercury, which is both exalted and in Domicile in the astrological sign Virgo, an earth sign). King Bnaspol says that because this is Loagaeth/gebofal (as opposed to a specific calling) there’s this inversion in the energy. He notes that my feet are upon the Air/Southern tablet as opposed to what this call is usually associated with, the Earth/Northern tablet. Still, Mercury does receive planetary dignity (domicile) in Gemini, an air sign.
King Bnaspol bids me to note the translation to these four calls (spoken calls 7, 8, 9, and 10 (but actually the calls are 8-11)), as well as the next four calls, for they will shed some light on my understanding. He also bids me make a mental note of this day, May 5th, because this is what I will be referring to, the inversion of the orders when it comes to Loagaeth: this will be of an important interest to me later.
Regardless, he appears to me again in this whitish, windy form, or a whitish smoke. He uses the same example of whispering the word “gold” and notes the different powers of transportation and those of gold and precious stones associated with these (e.g., of demand).
King Bnaspol has us start with Gemini, and attributes the initial communication, the whispering of the word “gold,” to it, that information about that which is coveted or desired: that is Gemini, as is the communication about verify information related to it. Additional things to consider are the information related to the properties therein, as discussed above. Of interest is that the Prince of the Sun, Bornogo, is related to knowledge of metals, and so could be combined with these elemental angels with respect to gold.
There’s an energy coming up off the leaf, which is of interest, but King Bnaspol bids me wait on it. It is the power of seeking information about the most precious of metals, gold, or precious stones. Though not necessarily about knowing such information about these in advance, it is the seeking, coming to know, and communicating the information related to the topics from this morning’s vision (such as identification).
When it comes to the powers of transportation associated with Gemini, King Bnaspol notes the shorter-distance travel (as opposed to longer distance travel, such as would belong to Sagittarius). Again, this is more closely linked with such roads as would belong within a neighborhood, such as a city or neighborhood map, especially if it’s the route one travels daily, knowing that shortest or quickest route, and knowing when the established route is changed. All of that is integrated into most modern smartphones, he notes (this would suggest that the power of the transportation angels related to Gemini could be used on, or in conjunction with, smartphones).
King Bnaspol points me towards that fact there’s a bit of swiftness with respect to Gemini, especially with Mercury in that sign right now! There’s that swiftness of back-and-forth communications of ideas, which is like the chattering between friends: the hustle and bustle that also is associated with the city. Such is his power to increase or decrease that.
He bids me move on to Libra: it is the pleasantness of communication when Venus is there, its domicile. It’s a different flavor from the experience of Venus in Taurus: it’s about etiquette and, “OK, we have all this communication, but how are we going to communicate it to each other in a way that doesn’t cause problems down the line, and cause disagreements thereby.” The beauty, refinement, and elegance of Venus is very much in line with Gold and Precious Stones. These are (and here I get a sense to concentrate!): there’s a sense of opulence with Venus in Libra, whereas Venus in Taurus is much more about easy living, softness, and comfort: feeling good because the body is well taken-care of. Venus in Libra, on the other hand, is etiquette and people feeling comfort and ease with each other, so comfort physically in the case of Taurus and socially in the case of Taurus. So in the case of a diamond gold ring, it’s a centerpiece, it’s a thing for people to talk about, but it’s almost always used in the context of relationships, “Look what So-and-So got me,” which becomes the chatter and gossip that reaffirms the social standing between two people, and among a network of friends. For what it’s worth, it’s fair, for it is something of substance and value.
Next, King Bnaspol alights ol Libra, and on Venus in Libra, with respect to transportation. “Here, it’s about harmony. This was the obsession of many geniuses such as William James Sidis: finding a harmony of transportation: how to cause the least amount of delay, the best sort of social (good, due to the least loss of time), because of the reduced Saturnian influence (or the best kind of Saturnian influence, for Saturn is exalted in Libra!) on account of the discipline. Venus, here, because it’s seeking pleasantness and harmony among people, then reaching agreement and the discipline that requires that is why Saturn is exalted there. At any rate, with respect to transportation: harmonious city planning is clearly at the top of this list, so this is definitely a power that you would consider to wield in advance of whichever city you would move to, or perhaps even consider which cities(‘ powers of transportation) already align themselves with you and your desired goals, if (moving to such) is your endgame, so to speak.
“With respect Aquarius. Here, we have the fixed idea, fixed air. Now, how on earth can fixed air relate to transportation? Fixed air, at the very clearest example, would be the hot air balloon. It’s a very slow, leisurely trip, and is relatively safe”–(considering how little it’s changed from the 18th century!). “It’s definitely steadier than being on an airplane or helicopter. An airplane to some degree is closer to Aquarius than a helicopter, which is much more like Gemini.
“Consider the jeweler,” King Bnaspol moves on. “The air [to cool the metals] must be cool and convey the heat away in a fixed manner, and be ordered in the safety surrounding this cooling process. The entire ventilation must be properly managed, so that steady fixed directionality to air: such is Aquarius related to gold and precious stones and jewelry. Also, the fixing of gold, because in this one case it happens to work well, about information in computer chips: in this sense the Aquarian element is very much at hand.” Generally, he points to how we can use computers, use these air-tablet powers with respect to computers.
Finally, once again with respect to transportation, King Bnaspol adds, “Maintaining a schedule, following that schedule, [and] making sure things are done at the right time at the right place: timing is everything in comedy,” he jokes, intimating that even the delivery (transportation) of a joke could be helped with these angels using the Aquarian astrology energy.
He asks me if I have any questions. I thank him for his thoroughness and I ask about the phrase used to call upon King Bnaspol: “…and hast said to me, here to fore what thou art, there I may know,” and whether he thus knows anything about me that I’m unaware of and that would be helpful for me to know that he could say unto me, “If it please you, and if you be so inclined, you Right Noble King, Bnaspol.” He kindly offers me two notes on me that I accept.
I thank him and ask whether he has anything else. “This is enough. Some you have already suspected, others you need to hear in the moment, because though you know it, it’s important to know” (at that time). I ask if he has anything else, whether it be long-term or short-term. He says: “Much of what your mind is already grinding upon, there I know, and to tell you would be to change the outcome that is desirable unto the Most High. I reply , “Fair enough, I respect that, your Majesty.”
Now he shows me this feeling coming up off of the leaf, Leaf 11a, and that this leaf is the 39th that I have worked with, and opposite that is the 40th (which has a 21×21 grid of bold letters which is centered within the 49×49 grid). This marks the transition to the 40th leaf, he says, which is previewed here. (I’ll note also that in reaching this leaf, these two squares’ dimensions of 19 and 21 add to 40. Also, the difference between the number of cells of these two central grids is 441-361 = 80, which is two times 40. 21 is the number of Aethyrs below the Abyss, and subtracting that from the number of leaves, 49, leaves (heh) 28 left over, which is exactly how many leaves have all 2401 cells filled in. However, he also notes that there is the 3/4 split of the 49 leaves, which is something already worked to be reconciled within this system, as I have mentioned in previous posts. 19, of course is all of the Watchtower tablets, and 30 is the number of Aethyrs.
Thus ends the vision.
Sunset: Similar procedure.
King Bnaspol appears once more in this windy form. As he surrounds me with air as a sphere (similar to yesterday evening’s vision), he says, regarding Governor Vixpalg and Zurchol: they have been helpful, yet he says that I’m getting “a little too high up for them to reach.” This doesn’t seem right. Now he says that the difference between their number of servient angels and the number referenced in the call is even (and that this is a pattern that I would have noticed if I would have been able to take the time to find it). With even numbers, he says, I shouldn’t expect as much help. They’re present “in the sense that you’ve vibrated they’re names,” he says, “but they are less of a factor.”
Now he transports me around the world and says, “I’m transporting you around the world as the air travels.” He notes of the entire of atmosphere of earth: “Note how any given molecule of air, nearly all the air that exists, will eventually reach” all the destinations. “It will constantly move into and out of living creatures,” but for the most part, the atmosphere is circulated. “This air can cover the entire space,” (i.e., the globe), he says. Transportation is in air’s nature: “People used the power of sails to get to where they wished to go, and the only reason they couldn’t quite do so easily on land is that the land was not quite flat enough, whereas the water was easier to transport with.
“Regarding jewels and precious stones,” he reviews, “again this has to do with information as to proper location, identification: things like that, and the proper application and uses of gold and these precious stones.” He adds into this the proper use of stones as far as talismans are concerned, such as astrological magic. Gold has its special place, he says, and that if one were to use these elemental angels associated with gold, that one would have a much easier time entering into Tiphareth (i.e., via the sun): this is of interest to anyone doing Holy Guardian Angel work. He again advises me to note this date for future reference.
King Bnaspol tells me to bear with him for a moment, and he tries to find all of the appropriate reflections of these powers, and is trying to find the proper alignment of them all, and now they are all being beamed into my subtle body. It feels like an even stronger imprinting from last time; it’s both pleasurable and energizing. “Just bear with me, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth,” he commands, “for you are in a delicate place.” Overall, it seems to last at least a full minute.
Update 2: I have added King Carmara & Prince Hagonel to those days in which multiple kings & at least one prince must be called, for they are the high king and prince, respectively. See my write-up of Day 36, coming shortly. This also leaves (heh) both King Carmara & Prince Hagonel called times each.
I think I have something of a scheme (subject to change) which explains the different order that I’ve observed with respect to these leaves. Today (Day 35/Leaf 15), the tablet activated was the Air tablet, and because it’s Saturday, it was King Bnapsen who I called. He said that there will be a reversing, several times, of the tablet order.
Yet I have also noted the following: most of the time, the Enochian calls (which, among other things, are associated with the leaves of Amzes Naghezes Hardeh (Liber Loagaeth) of gebofal) sometimes have large numbers (i.e., in the thousands) in them, and these are relatively close to the number of servient angels associated with zodiacal kings in the Aethyrs. Yet there are some calls which do not have them.
Thinking through both of these discrepancies, I had a tentative order to the remaining days’ workings; it was beautiful, it was, in King Bnapsen’s words, “clever,” but “wrong.” Rather than show the original, here’s what he hacked with me during today’s solar noon scrying. I’ll link to this after the fact.
The only thing I’ll note is that tomorrow, Sunday, I will actually call on Prince Bornogo (in addition to King Bobogel). Other days I’m either calling on only the king or a king and prince jointly. Saturn and the sun invert their associations for exaltation and fall, so there are two days when their influences are combined (“the last shall be first, and the first, last.“)
The second of these, the last elemental day (yet n.b. that two watchtower calls remain on Thursday & Friday, and Leaf 1 I will read on Saturday), falls on Wednesday, yet King Bnapsen associated it with the Sun and Saturn. When I call on Prince Brorges the Saturday prior, it is nonetheless during Mercury’s hour). Mercury is mercurial! By then, astrological Mercury will be in exact trine to Saturn, and the sun the sun is transiting will be ruled by Venus, who will be in Mercury’s sign of Gemini. Finally, the sephirothic & planetary switch between Raphael and Michael for Tiphareth, Hod, Mercury, and the sun seem somehow reconciled with Saturn in this plan.
In general, he says, this is tailored to me and my natal chart (King Bnapsen notes that my Mercury is in Aries, the sign of the sun’s exaltation), so your results may vary.
Finally, note that the tablet order changes from:
Water-Earth-Fire-Air (West-North-East-South, which suggests the night, a reversal of the day), to
Air/South-Water/West-Earth/North-Fire/East (shifting the order by a single tablet), then
Air/South-Water/West-Earth/North-Fire/East (again), and finally:
Fire-Water-Earth-Air, which, interestingly, has the “first and last” from the previous two rounds reversed.
*End of Gebofal proper; in the evening, around 8:37, when I intend to finish: all four planets are in domicile, and all planets in sect. †Included to complete a full septile and to fulfill promise: “Thrice 50 times will I lift my hands unto thee” in prayer of Enoch. ‡Included to complete a full astrological septile **Actual end of the ritual; included to complete a full septile. This day the moon is in Leo, my rising sign, while the sun is in Taurus, my 10th house and the sign of my sun & moon. Strikethrough text indicates changes to calls based on advice from King Carmara in later readings.
