Three common problems with online designs of the SDA

I mentioned this on the Praxis Behind the Obscure podcast, but it deserves attention for those of you who may be making you own Sigillum Dei Aemeth. Some of the online designs are incorrect.

The first and probably most important issue is the inclusion of the y/14 cell at the bottom of the outer ring. This is probably most problematic because not only did the Archangel Michael directly tell Dee elsewhere in the diaries to fix it, but also because this causes the sum of the outer ring plus one (which was to be added as directed by Michael) to add up to 440, not 441. 441 is equivalent to the word “Aemeth” or “truth,” while 440 is equivalent to “dead.”

The next problem is that the angel name Ized is sometimes listed as Izad. Review DuQuette’s Enochian Vision Magick to see how the angel names are derived from the associated table.

Finally, the letter Z to the left of the top of the pentagram should actually be an S, for the same reason as mentioned above. Dee apparently replaced the S with a Z based on phonetics, something he did elsewhere at least marginally at one point in his diaries.

Have I mentioned how indebted I am to the Phergoph site? You should check it out.

Gebofal, Day 30: Highest Aethyr, LIL

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of LIL. Call to King Blumaza. Note: If you’ve never done Enochian, this Aethyr is quite powerful. After scrying this Aethyr the first time in 2019, I took steps to try to initiate myself into Chokmah and, for this Aethyr, Kether. After meeting with some success thereby, I was able to deepen the vision of this.

I see this pure, white sphere. It’s like it’s trying to shine out all of these different colors, and I feel my crown chakra lifting and raising up. There’s a lot of lightning coming off of this sphere now, and now it is so bright because it is reflecting all of the light which ever has come to reflect off of it. It is blindingly light now, and I am being wrapped up in a beam from it. It is holding me and taking me into a cocoon and it is taking me inside of itself.

This is the Diving Heart of Hearts. I approach the Center, and I’m slowly decelerated as I approach It. When I look about me, I see all of these thousands of millions of possibilities of beings, and I’m having compassion towards all of them, all of these lives lived, moments of Joy, Sorrow, Horror, and Peace. I’m seeing them through millions and billions of species’ eyes. I’m just trying to maintain this level of compassion for all of them.

I feel all of these moments come through me now, rotating from the outside to the Center, where I am, as through a torus, and I continue to have this rotation, and as I speed it up…it’s like they’re both at this Center and about the Surface of the Sphere simultaneously. No longer is this a rotation, this is a humming, a sympathetic vibration.

Now I feel the energy coming up off the leaf, the table, and the seal of King Blumaza under my foot. I hold this compassion, and await any message from the Divine. There’s such a beautiful feeling of peace right now; it’s like I’m lying in a bed of Compassion and the feeling that comes over me from lying there is Peace.

“Oh, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: this which you have sought for so long, it be only 19 days hence. I have put it in your Heart to read this first leaf, for it was to be read. Know this, that such Love is neither earned nor unearned, it is neither conditional nor unconditional, for this is PRONOA: it merely is. It is always available to you and to your fellow human beings, and to the animals and to the plants and to all of this life upon this planet Terra, or in English known as Earth: CAOSG.

“It is always available unto you, if you look for it, if you seek it, if you steep yourself in it, and all of its infinite varieties. The Love of solving a complex problem, the Love of merely holding one who is mourning, the Love of joining in to the rejoicing of grand moments of Beauty. It is always available unto you.

“And now, feel you this change about your subtle body as you prepare to enter into this realm of Adam Qadmon. Feel it in its fullness, for I am the One True God, and show Myself in Many Different Aspects, many different divinities, for all gods are One God, and what there is to be known and what is to be grokked, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: it is far beyond your understanding, and I will merely do what can be done to bring it out in you, to unfold it in you, to make it more visible to you, to give you Perspective, yea: Coelispex, so that you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, may help unfold it in others, and be able to unfold it in all of its infinite variety: TON DAMPLOZ.

“Such Love have I to you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, and to All. For All may come unto me. All may know this Love. Fear not the words which arise out of your mouth, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for the Spirit of the Lord is with you and speaketh through you. Yea, even when thou knowest it not.”

My voice is caught in my throat: “O God, is there anything else?”

“No, Son of God, Son of Man, Son of Earth: you have two more times to call upon this today. You will know it in its fullness this evening: yea, when you repeat the word ‘LIL’ seven times. Such sevenfold depth you will know, and then, 19 days hence, you will enter into this realm of Adam Qadmon, and you will realize this rainbow body. Much love unto thee. Commence now.”

Union, and then: “Such Beauty there is in this, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth. I have nothing else for you today, until you call me again at noon, and again at sunset. Much love to you, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: remember always: God hath such love, hath such PRONOA, for thee.”

The vision ends.

Commentary: I see the phrase “One True God” as the Divine identifying the truth of unity, and “show Myself in Many Different Aspects, many different divinities, for all gods are One God,” as the Divine unifying across all panthea (e.g., possibly panentheism) “and what there is to be known and what is to be grokked, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: it is far beyond your understanding” as an obvious reference to my limits. So, please, be forgiving if this doesn’t match up with your worldview. Peace and love, peace and love!

Noon: Similar procedure.

The angels have me make some physical adjustments. Again I see a white sphere, this time with a vertical ring about it; I note that it reminds me of the rings of Uranus, and doing so causes it to appear a bit more bluish, but it returns to white shortly. The ring comes undone at the point farthest from me and once again approaches and enfolds me like a cocoon, and again takes me to the center.

Again, I see the interior of the sphere, and I slowly come to a pause. I see again all of the experiences of all of the beings, and God is once again showing me all of the possibilities which could not be (i.e., foreclosed based on actualizing certain previous possibilities). God shrinks down the pictures of actual experiences of beings and now I see this vast space between all of them, and it’s this massive light, and I see how very close I am to this portal to the realm of Adam Qadmon. I see the vast spaces of unbounded possibility, and both Binah and Chokmah, in this vast emptiness of potentiality which cannot be, are ineffective in that Binah cannot receive, and Chokmah cannot project.

I’m told to try my best to have as much compassion as I can for all of it, equally, and I do, and I do, and I do: it just magnifies, and once again I try to speed the flow to the point where there’s this hum reached, and there is. I feel my entire body just lifted or raised up, and it’s this beautiful hum to my subtle body, and I feel energy coming up once again now off of the book (Amzes Naghezes Hardeh, Leaf 20a), more off of the table, and finally off the seal again.

God is saying, “Behold, Blumaza [king of the lunar sephira of Yesod], and with Mars in Cancer [in its fall], and the moon in its fall [in Scorpio]: it is opposing where it is normally in its exaltation, and thus they are receiving each other. So, though they are themselves in a weakened condition, they themselves are nonetheless raising each other up. So this lunar and sublunar sphere can be in a better condition to receive the light, to receive the light of this lunation, and thereby work it into the grand unfolding of All That Is. Thus now you are able to receive the light, such as you are able to receive it.

“Yea, have compassion for those that are in your path! Have compassion for those who are in pain, and have compassion for those who are confused, and have compassion for all that Could Have Been, for the reality in which you are taught by the one whom you must now teach! Have compassion across space and time, and across all of the possibilities that were foreclosed as a result. Just continue to have this Grand Compassion, o Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth, for this is your destiny! This is the unleashing of the Venusian nature within you, much as your sun was released and rectified yesterday in its fullness, so you must know now that today marks the beginning of the unleashing of this PRONOA, of this compassion, for yea, although your capacity to love has been very confused, it has been very difficult: it has [nonetheless] received help along the way, and now receives the Highest of all Help, the Help of the Almighty God Himself, Herself: the Almighty Divine as you have come to know It.”

I just try really hard to focus on this, and to do as I have been bidden, and it’s like I’m now encased in this spherical rainbow jewel, and it’s beautiful, this vibration and hum. The angels are saying, “Yea, it is difficult to unfold completely, this completely spherical consciousness in which all the light is there [as a bright white light], and yet, you have only known What You Have Been Alive to Know, and What You Have Been Around to Experience. Yet the Divine Has Known all of these things In Equal Measure, and so continue to hold this in equal measure, and at times your rainbow will seem like unto a beautiful white sphere. At other times, it will seem like unto the process of putting the black sphere in its proper measure. But at all times, hold, as bet you can, when meeting another, this transparent sphere, knowing them as they are to be known, and allowing them to be as they are, and allowing, to some degree, the suffering which they are choosing for themselves. For in so doing, they can come to know the fullness of God on their own terms, and thus the Law of the Parts will be upheld as well as the Law of the Whole.”

I feel God now within me, and He is reaching into my torso, into my anahata chakra, yes, even the heart of my heart, and He gives it the subtlest of touches and caresses, and it opens so much up in me, and I feel so much, and I’m so grateful unto the Most High for this. He is saying, “Your heart is being prepared. Look you to the elements and approach them with this same transparent heart.”

I say, “O God, please give me the strength and the fortitude and the sensitivity and all that which is needed to do so,” and He says, “This I will give you, and more, and I will give you, indeed, confidence to do so.”

And I ask, “O God, my God, is there anything else?” And he says, “No, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth: go now in peace. Know now that this journey is already a fait accompli.”

Thus ends the vision.

Sunset: Call to LIL. Call to King Blumaza. Due to delays and feeling upset, I neglected the call to the governors, and to the Zodiacal Kings.

The angels bid me to lean back and relax. They acknowledge the emotional content of a day like this. They praise my work at compassion, and say that it is multidimensional work. I grieve into my heart of hearts, and recall how the Divine blessed me by touching this heart. I remain so grateful. I allow myself to feel the emotional pain, and it’s okay.

I see a hand come towards me, and it takes me by the hand and leads me to the center of the white sphere. It’s the hand of Christ, and we sit on rugs and drink tea at the center of this sphere. He shows me His hands and feet, He shows me the scarring about His scalp, and the wound in His side. He notes that my hands are together (in the prayer position, holding Leaf 20 between them), and my feet apart (so as to be touching the sides of the table). In a sense, He notes, that a cylinder could go through my hands at this point. He notes that, in general, my placement of my hands with each other, and my feet apart, is an inversion of the placement of Christ’s own placement. Peter was crucified this way.

He says that I have doubted, and have returned. I have denied, and I have returned, because I have come to accept the pain. He reverts my astral body back into the usual crucifixion pose as a symbol of accepting me. He says that at the center of this cross is the heart: the heart of the heart of the heart of the heart of the heart. He then bids me to repeat the call, this time repeating LIL seven times as had previously been advised of me, “And we will resume.”

I repeat the call to the Aethyr and this time remember to call the Zodical Kings and Governors of the Aethyrs, except I substitute “LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL DE LIL” (“LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL of LIL”) for just “LIL.” Note: this would seem to presuppose that each Aethyr can be thought of as able to be subdivided into Aethyrs within Aethyrs. I have used this technique before and found that you can get into quite rarefied Aire (heh) by doing so.

I’m directly within the sphere again, this time seeing all of these screens of possibilities again, but this time all of these possibilities are whirling about me, as is the space in between, a massive rotation. I’m having compassion even for the forces which are causing this rotation, and this seems to click something into place! And behold, I see again, and I see again, and I see again: I see this massive rotation, and we are approaching this realm of Adam Qadmon, and I’m told that tonight, I will be right at the event horizon, and I will cross right into it tomorrow.

There’s this massive energy, this beautiful light, and it seems to completely encompass this sphere, which now seems more like an egg of a shuttle-pod, surrounded by intense energy and light, and all of the possibilities on the screen, actualized and foreclosed, are increased in intensity, and I continue to hold this compassion for all of them, as I can. I try to turn my compassion up to Infinite: and this is the key word, “infinite”: MAOFFAS MONONS (measureless heart): MAOFFAS MONONS! MAOFFAS MONONS! MAOFFAS MONONS! Measureless heart! Measureless heart! Measureless heart! And this heart is just encompassing all of this, and I see now about me all of this grand beauty, all of this grand heart which is just trying to pour out to all possibility, and to all of this Infinitude.

It is unlike anything that I would have possibly conceived, and I’m trying to stay at both the Center and About Everything, and it is almost too much for my heart to take! And I know that God knows my limits, so I continue (and I nearly weep now) and continue with this Measureless Heart for all of these Possibilities, and just this Potential Itself, that I’m trying to have this Measureless Heart for, this Infinite Heart, as best I can!!

And I’m trying, trying to reflect the Whole [of existence] within me, as best I can, because I know that this is the best as I can be purified as to try to maintain this emotional state, this Vastness of Compassion! “Let it be Infinite! Please, o God, let it be Infinite!” And He says, “Aye, indeed, but you yourself are human and have limits, but indeed, it is the spark of Me within you that chooses to cry out in such ways, and so I will give you as measureless a heart as your system is capable of.” My emotions still run quite high and I continue with this vast feeling of compassion towards all I see, and it is this tragedy that I, as a human being, and yea, even the Divine, have our Limits.

But even working within these Limits, there is so much to be done. There is so much good to be had, and so much Compassion to be had, and so much Peace to be modeled and distributed, offered in pure generosity and compassion for All. I’m feeling this beautiful energy now, coming up off of the leaf, up through my hands and arms and into my torso: and it is God in His Mercy Who is changing me and my entire subtle body now, all the way down through my feet. I especially feel energy coming up from the seal of King Blumaza, and I’m feeling it all about me now, all about this table. And I see the same elongated octahedron arising out of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth. I see the top half encompassed by a sphere, and now the bottom half also, with a filled circle at the middle, as follows:

Representation of the white circle of the light of the Realm of Adam Qadmon, interfacing with the spheres of Heaven and Terra and of the elongated octahedron from previous visions.

The spheres represent heaven (future state, and the upper part of the lotus-rose bloom) and terra/earth (present state and the lower thorny stem of the lotus-rose). It is all new to me. All of it in its beauty must be accepted for what it is. These two spheres thus look like unto the symbol for infinity, and a twisted ouroboros, but about many dimensions. I know them to be of many dimensions, but they are represented in 3D here.

The middle ring on the plane perpendicular to the meeting point of these spheres is the Ain Sof Aur of the realm of Adam Qadmon, shooting into the link between heaven and earth. It is Wonderful. I’m told that it is this filled circle in this plane, where these two spheres meet, is what I will circumambulate over the next 19 days.

I ask whether God, in His Mercy, has more to show me, and he says “No.” I thank Him, and the vision ends.

Note: Only now, after all of this time, do I realize the final piece I did not realize before. Gebofal is 49 days long, and there are 49 leaves of Loagaeth. It is not only 7*7, the squaring of the septenary nature of Enochian as a whole, but it is also the sum of the 30 (degrees per astrological sign) and 19. Nineteen relates to manifestation, but also 12 (signs of the zodiac) + 7 (planets), and is also the rounded square root of 360, which is why it is the degree of exaltation of the sun. Once again, the exaltation scheme of Enochian is borne out.

Gebofal, Day 17

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of UTA/VTA (“you-tay”). Call to King BABALEL. Vibrated both the governors of this Aethyr as well as the Zodiacal kings associated with it. I got a side effect from a shot and wasn’t feeling great (nearly vomited), so I repeated the call to UTA just to be safe.

The angels instruct me to put both hands up on the leaf 33b, because they can tell that I don’t have much strength to leave my hand on the Holy Table. Nonetheless, they ask that the sides of my feet remain abutted to the plastic furniture risers (which I am using in lieu of those made of sweet wood), which contain the four miniature Sigilla Dei Aemeth.

I see a whirling disc, full of color. This, they say, is the preview of the rainbow body, and the preview of Chokmah, and of Kether by way of Chokmah. I generate compassion at their request. The angels are directing me to a throne. They note that although my physical body is not well, my astral body is ready for this vision. I put my hand on the Holy Table at their direction.

The angels mention that Babalon appeared to me briefly when I was sick, and that God in His Mercy (J/Iehusoz) prevented my vomiting (praise be unto him). King BABALEL praises my calling upon the zodiacal kings. This will be sort of an upgrade for me: as a result, so much more will occur (though so much had to occur for this result!).

I continue to sit upon this throne. I’m a bit paralyzed, but everything I see come before me, I have a lot of compassion for. I see a whirlwind of angels, rotating: at this point, it’s unclear whether it is they or I who is speaking. The message is: “It’s enough. No matter what: it’s enough. The rainbow body is enough for this.” All of the horror, all of the beauty: everything is enough in this moment. The angels instruct me to sit upright in my throne. They note the cube created by the four legs and the seat, but also, the arising from that, the head and heart, and the larger spheres implied by them: this is the rainbow body crown.

The angels (governors and kings) say that they will do “surgery” on my subtle body now. I vibrate their names and express my gratitude. They express their gratitude for me doing this, even though it was very difficult. I ask if there’s anything else, and they say no. “Rejoice, Son of Man, Son of God, Son of Earth. Such was the worst of these [Aethyrs].” The angels instruct me to remain in the throne astrally, and show me a couple of discs before closing the vision.

Noon: Similar procedure: this calling of the Zodiacal Kings will continue through the rest of the Aethyrs.

I’ve recovered somewhat, and focus on the heart of compassion. I remind myself that chunks of this world needs to be grokked before one can have compassion towards them. Once again I’m seeing the 7D sphere, with line segments (but, emotionally, “rays”) emerging from the origin, indicating directions and seven colors. I ask the angels what I ought to focus on in order to balance across these dimensions. The angels instruct me to continue with my compassion, but also try to start incorporating others’ perspectives. I acknowledge that this is not my strong suit, but the angels say to keep trying, even in small ways: it’ll make a huge difference.

I see all seven of the angels, plus my HGA, almost bouncing up and down on my chest, trying to jumpstart this subtle body/psychic surgery and work. I see two of the angels, Ooanamb and Gebabal: they lead me to a door in outer space, which is similar to the door in a previous vision, except rather than being in “regular” outer space(!), it’s a trippy, psychedelic, Jackson-Pollock-on-drugs kind of space, very vivid colors. The angels instruct me to go through the door, and I do; like with Orpheus, I can’t help but look back. I see the door dissolve into this psychedelic space and become one with it.

Now I feel as though I’m falling, but the angels correct me: I’m not falling. The mind is what is falling: this is the force of the drippings being pulled by the Abyss. The general gravity is trying to pull me down out of the Heart of God. One must be patient and persistent, and eventually a being’s heart will magnetize toward the Heart of God, rather than fall away from it. “You need to not identify with the drippings.”

Considering that the door is what has dissolved, and that there’s this downward motion I’m feeling, I remind myself that in space–other than gravity, collision, or magnetism–the body tends to either remain in the same motion, or at rest. So I ask all of the angels collectively how to approach this Divine Center, and again the angels say to be willing to let go of my ideas of reputation. Be willing to let go of a bunch of things so to allow being authentically in Divine Union, and the blessings coming to “will be beyond what imagination could have predicted.”

The angels are trying so hard to help me recover physically, and I’m very grateful for this. There’s a tiny circle directly ahead, and it’s a planet, like unto the Pure Land, they say. The angels tell me to keep in mind that there is a slight flaw in some of the doctrines surrounding the Pure Land, which is to say that this world is corrupted. The angels tell me not to worry so much about that.

Instead, coming to this Pure Land, the angels inform me that this is the proper perception that all is already perfect. I become distracted by visions of me not too far off in the future, two to six months. I return to the vision, and try to relax into it. I sit for a bit in the perfection of this pure land, recognizing the perfection of all things. My heart realigns a bit. The angels encourage me: “Yes, this is what we’ve been waiting for you to do.” The angels close the vision with instructions to rest, and I express my gratitude.

The vision ends.

Sunset: Similar procedure.

I see the same psychedelic scene again. The angels reiterate that I need to be consistent about remaining in compassion. The angels point to the psychedelic scene again. All of this needs to be loved, I’m told. This is a big task, and this needs to be constant, but I will be able to do this, even if not 100%. That’s what the rainbow body is. Making the effort and doing the work and trying is all very important, they advise. I say that I will take it to heart, and the angels ask me to take it in heart, so I do.

The angels recommend just trying to sleep tonight, and that tomorrow should look a lot better. They ask me to continue compassion and lovingkindness towards all, even towards things: “You’re in the same world together, and a chair has the level of consciousness to be such and not something else, doesn’t it?”

My holy guardian angel pulls me aside to speak. He says that this may be the last time he and I speak. Should I be successful in crossing the Abyss and realizing the rainbow body, he will become fused with me. He wants to express his love towards me, and he thanks me for reaching out to contact him, and I’m so very touched I start to weep a little. I return my love to him and I say that though I am a human and below him in the hierarchy, I consider him to be a brother. “No,” he says, “we are the same. We are brothers.” He enfolds himself about me for when the fusion occurs.

I ask the governors and kings, whether they have anything else to show me: “Please do not hold back, if it’s in your heart to give.” They say no, to continue to this lesson: remember to love all, even thoughts.

The zodiacal kings whom I have called roll up the remaining zodiacal kings who were passed over in previous scrying session. “No worries,” they say, “you were going according to the formula you knew. Now it’s good that you’re using this formula.”

Gebofal, Day 9

Sunrise: Call to Aethyr of LIN. Call to King BLUMAZA (associated with the sephira of Yesod), as described in Day 2.

Note: This was a slightly awkward scrying. I had to take one of our cats to the vet today and, my being a “householder,” I improvised a bit rather than trying to reschedule. I have tried to live by the commandment, “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and unto God what is God’s” (and, according to some versions: “…and unto me what is mine”). For me, this means trying to meet my worldly responsibilities as well as I can manage. In other words, I knew this ritual would leave me perpetually busy before I started it! 😀

I activated the furniture before I left; I brought what I could of it (a smaller version of the Holy Table of Practice, the large (main) Sigillum Dei Aemeth, King BLUMAZA’s seal, the Round Tablet of Nalvage, my wand, and Amzes Naghezes Hardeh, AKA Liber Loagaeth). I forgot the full, prayer of Enoch as related by the angel Ave (which I have modified), so I relied on Aaron Leitch’s transcript of the original. This being the 9th day, and angels constantly drawing out 40 & 9 (e.g., the numbers on the outer ring of the SDA summing to 441, 49*9, and there being 40 cells in all of this outer ring = 49-9), I expected a shift, and there was, and I’m not just talking about the awkward scrying session to start the day. Note also that the Aethyr of LIN is the first Aethyr with an angelic governor whose does not derive from the previous methods of the Watchtowers: PARAOAN.

The vision begins with four dots of a square; I then see a tesseract. The angels rotate the tesseract. I visualize holding a torch lit by compassion. The angels remind me that this was originally the Aethyr that tripped me up in 2014, but now I can see the rotation, and that this is a turning point when it comes to the Aethyrs, and where it gets more complicated. I’m seeing four dots above me and four dots below me, each set in a square configuration, and they’re twisting in opposite directions, then returning to their initial position. My subtle body is sort of being twisted along with this. King BLUMAZA bids me be still, and I do so after adjusting myself in my seat.

The Governors & King are showing me a light, which is reminiscent of the light which strikes George Malley in Phenomenon. It sort of hits me. The angels are trying to shake something loose in me, and they note that it’s difficult on account of the awkward physical position I’m in, but acknowledge it is how it is with my being a householder. My subtle body is moving a lot; this Aethyr is very dynamic. I try to remember the heart of compassion, and the angels commend this, saying it will always magnetize me in the proper direction. This dynamism, they tell me, is all part of the lunar nature of King BLUMAZA & his sephira of Yesod, and the cyclical nature of the moon and the understanding thereof. They say it’s almost like the start of a new moon cycle (note: the moon is in Aquarius, not Aries, so this is metaphorical).

The unfolding that’s taking place in this scrying session is like unto folding something in a different dimension, such as pushing and pulling front and back rather than left-right or up-down. I see a palace open before me. I see a cross, but it is now rotated 90 degrees, except that the left length is equal to the right, and the short top part is of equal length to the bottom. They ask me what this is reminiscent of, and I say, “an airplane” (aeroplane). An airplane is trying to maintain a balance, more or less, of orientation. The angels ask what happens if a pilot loses visual? The pilot goes to instruments. Yet if the pilot loses visual, then visual cues are needed. The instruments are the heart, they tell me, whereas the visual is the circumference. The angels say that there is what you see in the imaginal/astral, and then there’s what you see in the mundane. This will be important as I work my through the palaces, for the heart and the mind must navigate the earthly palace and the heavenly palace simultaneously, so rather than two navigations, I must track four! The astral heart (center), the mundane heart, the astral visual (circumference), and the mundane visual, and finally these two palaces which must be navigated, and I mustn’t confuse the mundane and the astral! 😀

There will be yet another doubling, I’m told, which will be the reconciliation of all of these things in some manner. I express gratitude, the angels acknowledge and say they foreshorten this on account of my responsibilities. “Peace be upon you; know that He governeth all things.”

The vision ends.

Noon: Similar, ritual as Day 2, call to King BLUMAZA and to Governors Ozidaia, PARAOAN, and Calzirg.

I take a 7-7-14 breath. I see several images, but the angels ask me to focus again on the light which shook me earlier during this morning’s session. I see a vertical ring of light, a horizontal ring of light, and then a ring of light which is circular about the x- and y-axes. The last of these is about me, and I’m feeling out, using my heart of compassion as a torch again, coming from this place of compassion again. I see this heart as a pearl again, and it’s vibrating about the y-axis, at times with an axial tilt of about 30 degrees (and then reverting to vertical) which causes a conic section at top to seem to be bored out, but then it seems to not be. I get a sense that this is “the limits of the [heart] sphere to undo anything.” The angels are telling me that if there is some change that needs to happen, there may be some tilt to this degree, but then the entire thing just repolarizes or, if the attempt to create a change isn’t working out, reverses polarities.

The sense that I get is that about the xz plane (e.g., the slightly more than the ecliptic), there isn’t as much need to change or to change perspective.

A frog shows up. After testing, it goes away, so it shouldn’t have been here. The angels are pleased with this. I concentrate on the solids I’ve previously received, including especially the small white sphere. It seems to resist being understood. I see it breaking apart as with slices of an orange and then coming back together. This, the angels tell me, is merely different faces of the same compassion shown, for example, to a zodiacal influence. Even with Venus in fall or exile, they tell me, showing compassion is down to the skill of the magician or sage or realized one to be compassionate.

I’m trying to relax into the vision, and the angels themselves instruct me to relax. The angels ask “What hath God wrought?” Note: this is a reference to Numbers 23:23; “For there is no enchantment with Jacob, neither is there any divination with Israel; now is it said of Jacob and of Israel: ‘What hath God wrought!’.” Ironically, it is also the first Morse code message ever sent, which is to say a means of giving a message which must be interpreted! Nonetheless, I answer plainly, “All things continue to be wrought through Him, and therefore all things are already wrought through him,” which I modify to “All is wrought by Him” (in an attempt to transcend the objectness or nounness).

There’s a shift in my manipura chakra when I say this. The angels again try to twist me, but this time inside out, shifting from me-as-center-and-God/Totality-as-circumference to me-as-circumference-and-God/Totality-as-center, and then back again. The angels try to return me to the “uncollapsed wave function” described in previous scryings. I’m also to see all of these at the heavenly and earthly levels (so we’re at 16 things to be seen simultaneously, if you’re keeping track!). I’m trying to consciously fuse all of this together into a single perspective; the angels declare that this will happen most definitely at the Aethyr of LIL.

I ask if there’s anything else. There’s something of a feeling of a coiling snake (which is often symbolic of kundalini, yet also the ouroboros) about my right ankle (my right foot is on King BLUMAZA’s seal). It coils up and about me, and I feel compelled to push its jaw above my head. Once again we have the Phanes egg of the Orphic Mysteries. They tell me to know the circumference of the snake itself (e.g., the energy of circumference of the Divine, and Its heart, and of oneself, and of one’s heart). The snake eating its tail and starting anew is a reminder of the fallacious concept of death.

Now the snake is literally stretching me apart. The metaphor to stretching the imagination, the energetic body, and so on could not be more obvious, but it’s only at writing this up that I make this connection. This, they tell me explicitly, is to help me be okay with a larger extent of myself. Again, I get the sense of a loss of reputation: “A snake shedding its skin, a snake shedding its skin,” they repeat. I look at the shed scales, and it’s reminding me of husks in Kabbalah. That part of me is already redeemed, I sense: the accomplishment of the True Will is already imminent. The completion of the project is already happening, so I’m not sure I entirely understand this. But it’s like who and what I am needs to be redefined. I’m looking at all of this with compassion. The angels are saying that it’s like the scales will drop from my eyes, in terms of my own circumference, and the circumference of God, and the circumference of All.

I see an equal-armed, which is like the kind of toy with regular white plastic, and then green squishy soft plastic and padding underneath; it’s about the size of my forearm and could be safely played with by a toddler. It has a hole at the center, signifying the heart and relating to the Monas Hieroglyphica. This is like unto the Buddhist deity Tara, the angels say. This is like unto the salvation of Christianity, they tell me, hastening to save humans from their sins and errors such as via the compassion of Buddhism, and there’s this Buddhist-mentality which can rectify the corruption of modern Christianity (I’m only the messenger, people!). I note the slightly lower quality of the transmission, but this is the turn towards the Abyss and then the supernals again, so it is not surprising.

I ask if the angels have anything further, but mention again that I do not wish to be a rude guest. They say “no,” but then show me a baseball diamond, but now seen from above, it is like unto the Masonic compass symbol.

The vision ends.

Sunset: I see a spiral come at me once more. I’m in a cocoonlike section of a twisty energy field, which is narrow except for the part which encompasses me. Rather than twisting as in the previous two visions, it’s stretching out like the spring of a pen from the ends, narrowing it out. This narrowing out is placing my energy field throughout the “circumference” or sphere of the universe.

The angels caution me that this is the point in which individuals can go down a bizarre road (they don’t expect me to, but there’s a reason for the caution). This, they say, is when an individual too wrapped up in petty or narrow ego concerns, or overly obsessed, or deluded as to the relative importance of matters: such a one can get a real sense of identification with the Divine, and thus go into grandiose directions which are not upheld by the totality of all. Whereas others can actually make this shift into the totality of the Divine, and continue to work within the areas which are upheld by all. They say that this takes a subtle mind and I request this as well as discernment and a proper heart and alignment toward all of these things.

The string is stretching me apart, and the angels say that what’s going on right now is the stretching apart of my subtle body into a more universal configuration with the Whole; it’s making its way out to the sphere of the universe (as it were), and God is now at the center, and we flip these perspectives back and forth. Essentially, we are reconciling, returning to an uncertain, uncollapsed quantum state as to Who is at the Center, and Who is at the “Circumference” (lacking a good term for the spherical equivalent of this). The angels say that for any given person, their relationship with God typically puts them at the center and God at the “Circumference” (“How do I relate to God of all?”), but one can also see the Divinity within oneself, and simultaneously extend their ideas of who they are to more and more of the “Circumference.” Both of these things are true at once, they tell me. This is the trick, they say: God is both indwelling within, but also interpenetrating the universe, thus both the center and spherical surface by each of our individual measures.

At the same time, we’re not only this core within, but we’re also the Circumference, and also the rules that determine the measures of these. As we develop into adulthood, this Circumference can seem to get larger, and as we become elderly this Circumference can seem to diminish, but someone who is truly Realized can get this Circumference truly realized with All, as it IS.

This Crowned Wisdom and Crowned Understanding is crucial, but not enough, for there needs to be a shift to the Heart. It’s not a simple thing to say, “Oh, it’s just the Heart, so I can just be loving, and everything will be just fine,” because at the same time, there’s still that pain and hurt by which too many of us have unconsciously defined ourselves. All of that said: what is going on here is a simultaneous process on both fronts (and for which I am profoundly grateful). I could feel this same kind of pull early. As far as Choronzon goes (which has been popping up–here I pause to call on the Governors Ozidaia, PARAOAN, and Calzirg and on King BLUMAZA). Here, again, they mention the black sphere of prior visions. It is spherical, which means it is properly balanced in this frame, so that when for an individual who is unbalanced, this seems like a prison, a black cube. But for one who is balanced, the core of dukkha is suddenly properly contextualized in an excellent system to undo suffering, via a white spherical heart of compassion. This happens both in the mundane world but also within the subtle body. These forces can thus be constrained and redeemed. It may seem scary to the ego, but going through this process, one comes to the core of issue of dukkha, and this torch of compassion cannot ever be snuffed out. The issue is with the mind, not the heart. If the mind put the heart first, the magnetized heart would eventually point the mind in directions which would allow the mind to correct itself, and to gain this transcendent understanding, and to put dukkha in its place and context.

The angels are encourage me to forget the form that all of this will take in the coming years. Instead, acknowledge that the spirit of the change will be understood in the coming weeks, rather than the form itself.

Liber Loagaeth / Amzes Naghezes Hardeh: Final Thoughts before Gebofal

As I write this, I have ten days before I begin with the ritual known as gebofal, or at least a decent reconstruction of the spirit of what it may have been. For the most part, I will be following the works of Aaron Leitch, who is quite the Godsend when it comes to all things Enochian. The prayer that I will be reciting is 999 words, which leaves the 1000th word/insight to come from the Divine, as a parallel to the 50th day of illumination following the 49 days of the Counting of the Omer.

I started this work back in August of last year after having studied it for a couple of months prior (all you fans of astrology will note that Mars was at the beginning of its extended stay in Aries, my 9th house). and at the time I wasn’t sure I would be able to finish in time for an auspicious start to the gebofal ritual. The angels gave Dee & Kelley 40 days to finish the work, which is nigh impossible for a human being in my view. Perhaps if you multiply 24*40 for 960 hours, there’s a case to be made for 40 days.

A few notes about my approach: for each day I would work on the book, I would activate and wear the lamen and ring, and often I would activate the Sigillum Dei Aemeth also. Eventually, I lost some feeling in the tip of my middle right finger, but I made the choice consciously to sacrifice that. After each leaf, I would energetically activate it, as with any sigil, via gnosis (via the usual means). During the process, I’ve had a run of good luck, and noticeably so, without injuries or much in the way of things going wrong; it’s almost as if the intent and acts to work on Amzes Naghezes Hardeh has caused the angels to form a protective field around me. I’ll also add that Mars, the malefic out of sect of my day natal astrological chart, was also less Mars-y, or should I say I was focused on my will. With it in my ninth house, I was focused on the will to do something spiritual, which of course fits.

All that’s left to do now is nine days of purification prior to the 28th, the day after Passover. I’m not Jewish, but was baptized Christian, and have come to be reconciled to some degree with Christianity. I will be re-doing Leaf 49 (see my 3rd update to “A Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 6“), which is more of a correction/purification than the restructuring of Leaf 1. I’ll also be correcting/purifying Leaves 2-10 and through about Leaf 25 or 30 thereafter, mainly on some incorrect letter identification on my part or on the part of previous transcribers whose work I was relying on to supplement my own judgment. I pretty much know the mistakes I made, so I know what to look for. I think I’ll be able to get it done…maybe.

I hope to only need six days to finish all of my corrections. These six days parallel, the creation of the world and the day of rest of God in Genesis, only in reverse (for today is my day of rest): much as the angels continually reflected on Jesus’ phrase, “the first shall be last, and the last, first.” The final three days I hope to recite personal prayers that the gebofal working is seen through, and this parallels the “mystery of the Trinity” spoken of by the angel of Wisdom, Galvah; it also parallels the three days encompassing death and resurrection of Christ.

I don’t have much more to add at this point. I’m already feeling fairly introspective as the 9-day period of purification approaches, so this is definitely quite the ritual. I can only anticipate it being intense, since this is a thrice-daily scrying of each Aethyr, followed by 19 additional calls (I will assume the last call will be the reading of Leaf 1 itself).

Please wish or pray for my luck and providence in this task. Thank you.

Seeking a Search to a Solution to Liber Loagaeth, Part 5

Some divine inspiration struck last night regarding certain numbers and their part in Liber Loagaeth. All of the leaves, save two, are in the 49×49 letter format. The first leaf has the front side (leaf 1a) with 49×49 words (hence why they must be written out over several pages, though the truly hardcore industrial individual may purchase a foldable 24″ square page and try to fit them all in!), and the “back” (leaf 1b) has 40×49 words and then has a 9×49 table of letters, 441 letters in all. The number 441 parallels the SDA as mentioned in prior posts.

The final table, 49, is “one” (i.e., the angels did not have Dee & Kelley produce a “back” side), and is to be made into five 3×7 tables, for 105 letters in all. This table is described as “a hotchpot without order, so it signifieth a disorder of the World, and is the speech of the Disorder or Prophe[cy].” By implication, the rest of the book should not be of the same sort of disorder. To understand the order of the rest of the book, then, a user who understands mathematics must subtract the number 105 from the 441 for a total of 336 letters. 336 divided by the number seven (the cornerstone of the Heptarchia and much of the rest of the system!) yields 48–the same number of total leaves of the first 48 leaves of the book.

How might such a solution work? I suspect that each of these 48 “keys” unlocking each table is used twice, once with the word going forwards, and once with it going backwards. We have seen the play on “the first shall be last, and the last shall be first” in my prior post on seeking a solution to Loagaeth. This may yield the Enochian keys / calls themselves. It may even be that each of the keys is to work, not once for each leaf, but rather the first key will unlock Leaves 1a & 48b, the second 1b & 4a, the third 2a & 47b, etc.

Let’s start with seeing if we can obtain a key: here is the key as transcribed from Sloane 3188 (note that for the sake of clarity I haven’t reversed the tables as they would appear in the Enochian script):

ADROS,A,CLODFAC,DOGEPNAH,LAPCAH,MOCDACODEFAMON,TUALC,DOM,
URASNAGEPH,AMPHIDON,GANSEL,VAX,OREHAMAH,VORSAFANSA,UKAS
DAMIFAGA,NABULAX,ORSAGEH,NAMVAH,OCAR,LUNSANGEL,CARPACOA.
LUNSEMNEPH,ODARNACHOH,ZEMBLOH,OBLICANDON,GALSORXULAGA,
FOMNAPH,APANSAGEH,LONSUGALAN,GRAST,UBLANSO,ARNOX,VONSAO
TALTEMAPHECH,ORMACHADAGENOX,URSTAMVAH,NADVAREH,ONS,ARG
ZUCANZU,NAPLIORAH,NORGE,HAHANAHA,USPLAH,GRADUNVAH,NAVIO,
ARSAH,VONROGEN,DAHVALAH,ORZAP,CUL,CARSED,A,PO,RSAL,QASTAVA,
GANFUMARABOMONAH,GASTAGES,ORDOLPH,NAQAS,ORGEMVAH,NOXAD.
bottom of Leaf 1B from Liber Loagaeth

Next, I move forward in order across this table and delete each letter from the first table 49 (I’m using the AOM version, without the word “Loagaeth”; doing this with the Leitch version leaves a suspiciously untouched 8th & 9th row from Leaf 1b):

ADROS,A,CLODFAC,DOGEPNAH,LAPCAH,MOCDACODEFAMON,TUALC,DOM,
URASNAGEPH,AMPHIDON,GANSEL,VAX,OREHAMAH,VORSAFANSA,UKAS
DAMIFAGA,NABULAX,ORSAGEH,NAMVAH,OCAR,LUNSANGEL,CARPACOA.
LUNSEMNEPH,ODARNACHOH,ZEMBLOH,OBLICANDON,GALSORXULAGA,
FOMNAPH,APANSAGEH,LONSUGALAN,GRAST,UBLANSO,ARNOX,VONSAO
TALTEMAPHECH,ORMACHADAGENOX,URSTAMVAH,NADVAREH,ONS,ARG
ZUCANZU,NAPLIORAH,NORGE,HAHANAHA,USPLAH,GRADUNVAH,NAVIO,
ARSAH,VONROGEN,DAHVALAH,ORZAP,CUL,CARSED,A,PO,RSAL,QASTAVA,
GANFUMARABOMONAH,GASTAGES,ORDOLPH,NAQAS,ORGEMVAH,NOXAD.

Repeating these steps with the remaining four tables from Leaf 49, one quickly discovers a problem: there are more letter I’s (Enochian: Gon) in that table than in Leaf 1B, regardless of whether the AOM or Leitch version of Leaf 49 is used. Darn! A “hotchpot of disorder” indeed!

My next attempt was to take every seventh letter out of these 441 letters; the first result of this is a 9 row by 7 column (the first 63 letters out of 105), which I show below with the letters of King Carmara (I’ve also bolded an additional letter M for the Marmara version) and Prince Hagonel.

C DH,MDTM,
GHNOH,AS
GAEH,NCA.
NRZODOA,
H,GURAOO
ARARH,EG
U,RE,HH,VO,
ODH,UD,L,A,
ANAOAVD.

I then continued with the remaining 42 letters out of 105, and noticed that not only were Carmara & Hagonel there, but also, separately, the common letters of Baligon (the Venusian version of King Carmara) and Bagonel (the Venusian version of Prince Hagonel): BAGNLO; with a separate I & E:

LGPAOO
EDL,AAA
A,OAR,EO
EABCLG
AH,LURA
PANMAR
NH,HPUI

Coincidence? Maybe, but the presence of these two kings and princes in particular (leaving only 19 out of the original 42 letters NOT part of a royal angelic name) suggests to me that rather than removing letters from this in a disordered manner (i.e., how they originally showed up), it makes more sense to remove the number of disorder from the original 441 in an orderly manner. Doing so seems to be confirm the method in that the Heptarchia shows up so as to wink at the process.

What remains are the following 48 seven-letter combinations, which may or may not unlock individual tables in Loagaeth:

ADROSAO DFACOEP NALACAH OCDCOEF AMNUALC DURASNA
PHAMPIO NGASEVA XREHMAV ORSFNSA UKDAMIF ANABULX
RSAGHNM VAOCALU SANGLAR PACLUNS EMPHODA NCHOHEM
LOHBLIA NONGASR XULAFOM NAPPANS AELONSG AANGAST
BLNSOAN XVONSTA LTEMHEC HOMCHAD GEOXUST AVANADU
RHONSAZ UCANZAP LIOANOR GHAANAA USLAGRA DNAHNAV
ARSAHVN ROGENAH VALAORZ APCLCAR SEAPORS AQASTAV
GANFUMR ABOMOAH GASTGES ORDLPHN AQSORGE MAHNOXA

I’ll try to test these out later when I get some inkling of how they are to work, but this is the stage that I’m at right now. Clearly, more needs to happen before this is solved. If you like, feel free to work to see if there is an algorithm; just get back to me (there’s an email form somewhere on the site) if you’re successful.

Approach to a Loagaeth Solution, Part 3

Just another note on the general structure of the tables of Liber Loagaeth which are to be completed by the magician; there are 1201 cells visible to the magician on most of the tables to be completed on most of them. It turns out that, like the 113 letters of Table 49, 1201 is a centered-square number. What are the other two integers that (by definition) go with it? 1,200 & 49. Interestingly, 1201 + 1200 = 2401, which is 49^2. “Multiplied and dignified” numbers indeed!

Additionally, 1201 is a “super-prime.” To explain this, consider the first few prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, & 11 would be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th primes. Of these, 3 (prime number 2, which itself a prime number), 5 (prime number 3, also prime), & 11 (prime number 5, also prime) would be called “super-primes.” Interestingly, 1201 is the 197th prime number, yet while 197 is the 45th prime, 1201 is the 45th super-prime; additional dignity! 1201 is also the 25th (5^2) centered-square number, and the 15th centered decagonal number. 25 +15 = 40, and to make sure we multiply and dignify further, 4 (for squares) times 10 (for decagons) is also 40, and of course 40 is highly significant biblically & in Gematria as the number of water, and is also the number of cells in the ring around the SDA. Water is indeed mentioned by Galvah when asked about the letters of Leaf 49: “Of me they are honoured, but of me, not to be uttered: Neither did I disclose them my self: For, they are the beams of my understanding, and the Fountain from whence I water.”

Now that this seems to be exhausted (but you never know if Terence Tao will happen upon your blog!), let’s look at some of the exceptions to this. Leaf 43a, the first (technically, the first half) of the last 7 leaves of the 49 total (“So the last shall be first, the first last”) shows the a 7×7 square in the upper-left corner (but in Enochian/angelic letters, these would be in the upper-right). It also has the entire first row (rather than missing half its letters). In all, this makes 1246, which is a centered tetradecagonal (4+10=14) number, the 28th (14*2).

441, which is “Truth” in Gematria and additionally the sum (heh) of the outer ring of the SDA (as we saw in the previous post), is also a centered tetradecagonal number, the 17th, and for other reasons 441 is a very cute number: the sum of the first 6 cubes (“the mystery of the divinity” as promised by Galvah). 441=21^2 (21 letters in each of the 5 triangles in Leaf 49), which means there’s a further mystery of the trinity expressed through this leaf.

It’s not exactly clear, but either Dee or the angels or both seem to have also given us help on the other half of this leaf (Leaf 43b) but this time just with the first row, which means we have 1225 letters in all, or 35^2, or 5*5*7*7. We see yet again the expression of threes and fives in addition to the ubiquitous seven.

I noticed something else at Leaves 29a & 29b; Leaf 29 is the first of the fifth seven, and because five is the number of humanity, it makes sense that this is these are the first tables to have missing information (for we begin in a state of ignorance relative to the angels). Unlike the other leaves, which only leave out every other letter, Leaf 29a also has two complete 7×7 squares and two 8×7 rectangles at the left and right & top and bottom, respectively, each with capital letters where there would otherwise be blanks in every other cell. The use of 7 and 8 in this case is suggestive of the 113, or 7*7 + 8*8, letters in leaf 49. There are also four standalone letters at the corners, for a total of 110 (product of the 1st, 3rd, & 5th prime numbers). Altogether there are 1311 letters, which is 3*19*23. Leaf 29b looks nearly identical to 29a, except it has four 7×7 squares for an additional 100 letters and 2 letters in each corner for 108 (2^2*3^3) in all, or 1309 letters. 1309 is 7*11*17, and is the first sphenic number (numbers that are products of three primes) to be followed by two more sphenic primes (1310 and 1311, the latter of which we’ve seen before, which of course is the same first/last reversal we’ve seen repeatedly, since 1309, the earlier of these, comes last, while 1311 came first).

I’ll keep plugging away at this, but I thought I’d share the thoughts as they came to me!

Miniature SDAs

Those familiar with the Enochian system are likely aware of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth (SDA), or “Seal of God’s Truth,” a disc made of beeswax which is carved by the magician. This gorgeous seal has on its top an outer ring segmented into 40 parts, which circumscribes a heptagon of 49 spaces (7 for each side), which touches an inner heptagram at the points, within which are two more heptagons, the inner of which touches a pentagram. On the bottom, the Notarikon AGLA (Atah Gibor Le-olam Adonai,” or “Thou art powerful forever, Lord”) is written in a clockwise formation, within which several interlocking crosses are arranged.

There are hundreds of letters and numbers to be written on the spaces in the front in order to complete this seal. This can be done, but it takes patience on the 9″ version to do so when working with the beeswax: it an immense amount of when working on the four 4″ versions! My recommendation is to do so on the miniature (4″) SDAs soon after making the geometric template (and not waiting for a year, as I did!). Another caution is that it’s much easier to make a mistake with these, so be patient and careful. Double-check each place before lettering it. However, the angelic “high” that comes from making these smaller pieces of the temple furniture is the same as for the SDA, so it’s worth it from that perspective alone.

I’ll be reporting back after having done the lettering on all 4 of these. Chances are I’ll re-scry LIL again (that being my main Enochian activity nowadays).
