Symbolism & Power of the Magic Circle in Evocation

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic

Because man is a simulacrum of the universe (made in the image and likeness of God), all archetypal powers that exist in the universe also reside embryonically within man. Deep initiatory magic is about contacting the intelligences of those archetypes on the universal level to mediate that power back to connect, integrate with, and unfold the embryonic levels of the …

Ancient Egyptian Magic

Ancient Egyptian Magic by Bob Brier

Transcendence Works! Axiomata (Excerpts), Deep Magic, Mythology & Religion

Ancient Egyptian Magic was the first authoritative modern work on the magic of ancient Egypt, delving into the occult practices and spiritual beliefs across thirty centuries of dynastic rule during the Old, Middle, and New Kingdoms. Though it was written in 1980, and much has been learned since that time, this authoritative work will appeal to anyone interested in Egyptology, …

Why Learn Real Alchemy on a Magical Path?

Why Learn Real Alchemy on a Magical Path?

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic, Practical Alchemy

Real alchemy is the art of making quintessences, truly magical psycho-spiritual sacraments that expand consciousness into transcendent levels of experience. One point of distinction between true alchemical quintessences and entheogens used as sacraments in shamanic traditions, is that our quintessences act on a psycho-spiritual level without having any psychoactive compounds in the source materials. That is one of the proofs …

Magic & Alchemy: Understanding the Link

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic, Practical Alchemy

Within the Hermetic Sciences, the foundation of the Western Mystery Tradition, the two main branches are magic and alchemy. Magic as a broad subject is far more widely studied, since reliable alchemical training is hard to find. The same is unfortunately true of magic, but there is so much more of it available in general, that Seekers are forced to …

The UnderWorld Initiation

The UnderWorld Initiation by R. J. Stewart

Transcendence Works! Axiomata (Excerpts), Deep Magic

As the first post in the new ‘Axiomata’ category, I’ve chosen The UnderWorld Initiation by R. J. Stewart. Though it draws extensively from Celtic material, its value can be extracted by Seekers of any tradition as it exceeds its source material on many levels. I have quoted content that applies universally regarding initiatory magic within a deeper context of truly …

Evolutionary Powers & Alchemical Process

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic, Practical Alchemy, Transcendence

The conscious mind is not a singularity—it is a complex of functions and forces which ebb and flow within each other, and their movement creates thoughts and impressions that we believe to be our individual consciousness. Consciousness, by the very context of the word denotes a fullness, a purity, conveyed through faculties of awakened perception. Our conscious mind, however, is …

Seership & Initiatory Illumination

Seership & Initiatory Illumination

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic

Illuminatory Seership is a profound and truly Western magical initiatory practice, though little understood. It clears the channels of spiritual vision while gently awakening the Dragon of the West (called Kundalini in the East) to release the evolutionary power of true magical Illumination. The attainment of the full faculty of occult Seership is a simultaneous quickening of consciousness and the …

Hermetic Arts

Transcendence Works! Deep Magic, Practical Alchemy

Hidden in the depths of every sentient being is the impulse for evolution. In the soul of a human being this impulse, after refinement where the qualities of perception become more rarefied, begins a seeping through of the very essence of core beingness. This brings an awareness of the quickening of the original impulse… an impulse that is now pushing …
