The Artwork depicts a Siberian shaman drum. The drum in Siberian shamanism, in particular, is symbolised as being the trance horse the shaman rides into an ecstatic state of consciousness. The motif of the horse is often symbolised as being an eight-legged Mare. 

The eight-legs of the Mare represent the eight cardinal directions, which are also associated with the eight points of a ‘cube.’ Hence in the Tarot card of the ‘horned’ Devil XV, which depicts a demonised ‘horned’ shaman, he is traditionally depicted seated upon a ‘cube,’ you could imaginatively associate with the TARDIS of Doctor Who, since the shaman saw the drum as a macrocosmic tool, that empowers his microcosmic trance ingress into other (inner) realities.

At the centre of the ‘cube,’ and at the centre of the eight cardinal directions you have a ninth point. Whereby the eight-legged Mare was also associated with the world tree interlinking nine (worlds) states of consciousness, which of a symbolic formula was painted upon the drum skin. 

The eight-legged-Mare is also a fusion of two horses, representing the two nerve channels running along either side of the spinal (world tree) column. These two (horses) nerve channels belong to the Autonomic-Nervous-System. When these two (horses) nerve-channels are brought into balance via meditative (hypnotic) drumming, the two horses become fused, as the eight-legged-Mare, which activates the central-nerve channel of the Central-Nervous-System running along the centre of the spinal (world tree) column.

When the central-nerve channel is activated, the shaman will experience the arousal of what is known to the Yoga practitioner as the Kundalini-Shakti, along his spinal (world tree) column. The Kundalini Shakti is considered to be the life-force, which is experienced as being a liquid (fire) light, whose ‘quintessence’ is intuitively felt to have a feminine  (Anima Mundi) source. The Kundalini Shakti may be an intuitive description of the bio-photon, emanating from the Mitochondrial DNA, which is passed down from the mother to her children.

Whereupon the eight-legged Mare is seen to be the (female-centaur) animal form of a Spirit Wife, who manifests as a shape-shifting human (Anima) female within visionary states and bio-photon illuminated lucid dreams, a Surrealist Artist would call an Art MuseIf you are interested in an Art print or the shirt design, etc, Check Out my Redbubble shop, Please Click Here.  

Those of a Westernised temperament will probably find that the symbolism employed by a shaman is a bit too much to swallow, concerning his/her trance tool of a (genie bottle) drum. In order to further clarify what the shamanic symbolism of the drum is communicating in regards to hypnagogic trance induction, which is none too dissimilar to inducing a state of self-hypnosis, you have the following excerpt from a research paper.

Shaman Night-Mare Drum Siberian Trance by MARDUN

“Scientific research has determined that drumming patterns are associated with different brain wave activity, as measured by cortical EEG. The research was conducted, to determine if the subjective experience of percussion in general, and rhythmic drumming in particular, would elicit (inner) images or (internal) sensations with a common (symbolic) theme.”

“Twelve participants were divided into three groups and monitored for EEG frequency response to three separate drumming tapes. These tapes included: Shamanic Drumming, at approximately 4 to 4 1/2 beats per second; I Ching Drumming, at approximately 3 to 4 beats per second; and Free Drumming, which incorporates no sustained rhythmic pattern.”

“Four cortical sites, bilateral parieto-temporal and parieto-central areas, were monitored for each participant during three sessions. At the conclusion of the sessions, each participant prepared a brief written account and was given a tape-recorded interview of his or her subjective experience. These subjective experiences were then categorized according to recurring themes and consensual topics.”

“This research supports the theories that suggest that the use of the drum by indigenous (shamanic) cultures in ritual and ceremony has specific neurophysiological effects and the ability to elicit temporary changes in brain wave activity, and thereby facilitates (Triangle Of Art Imagination) imagery and possible entry into an ASC (altered state of consciousness – active imagination of varying visionary intensities), especially the (shamanic state of consciousness – hypnagogic trance/ecstasy) SSC.”

“Drumming in general, and rhythmic drumming in particular, often induces (inner) imagery that is ceremonial and ritualistic in content (depending on setting) and is an effective tool for entering into a non-ordinary or altered state of consciousness (ASC – active imagination) even when it is extracted from cultural ritual, ceremony, and intent.” 

“The drumming also elicits subjective experiences and images with common themes. These include: loss of time continuum; movement sensations, including pressure on or expansion of various parts of the body and body image distortion, “energy waves,” and sensations of flying, spiraling, dancing, running, etc.; feelings of being energized, relaxed, sharp and clear, hot, cold, and in physical, mental, and/or emotional discomfort. 

“Emotions, ranging from reverie to rage; vivid images of natives, animals, people, and landscapes; and non-ordinary or altered states of consciousness (ASC – active imagination), whereby one is conscious of the fact that there has been a qualitative shift in mental functioning., including the shamanic state of consciousness (SSC -hypnagogic [the Phase] trance) journeys, out-of body experiences (OBE’s), and visitations.” 

“A pattern that incorporates approximately 4 to 4 1/2 beats per second is the most inducing for ‘Theta’ gain. (Theta frequency is usually associated with drowsy, near-unconscious states, such as the [hypnagogic trance] threshold period just before waking or sleeping. This (acoustic/’music’) frequency has also been connected to [creative – ‘Muse’] states of “reverie” and [The Phase] hypnogogic dream-like image.”

“The pattern of the drumbeat as it relates to beats per second can be correlated with resulting temporary changes in brain wave frequency (cycles per second) and/or subjective experience, provided the drumming pattern is sustained for at least 13-15 minutes.” (NOTE: The Theta brainwave is depicted in the design.)

NOTE: The excerpt of the research paper, was adapted with notations, from a ‘Presentation Abstract’ by Melinda Maxfield, Ph.D. for the Stanford University Centre For Computer Research In Music And Acoustics (CCRMA).

SHAMAN DRUM SIBERIAN TRANCE

The design features a Finno-Ugric Siberian shaman. The word Shaman originates from Siberia, which is said to be derived from the Evenki word “šamán,” most likely from the South-Western dialect spoken by the Sym Evenki peoples. If you are interested in the Art pint, shirt design, etc, Check Out my Redbubble shop, Please Click Here.

The Tungusic term, Shaman, was subsequently adopted by Russian explorers interacting with the indigenous peoples in Siberia. The word, Shaman can also be found in the memoirs of the exiled Russian churchman Avvakum.

The term Shaman has since been adopted by anthropologists as a coverall term for numerous other cultures who share similar shamanic techniques, which enable a practitioner to alter his/her (brain wave) states of consciousness.

The Siberian shaman in particular utilises the drum. The drum is often referred to as being an eight-legged-mare; which is in turn is associated with the abode of a (Anima emanation) Spirit Wife, somewhat like a genie in her (drum) bottle. In other words, the drum, Mare and Spirit Wife are seen to be the same. (The Eight legs of the Mare, being the eight compass directions of a symbol painted upon the skin of the drum, which is also associated with the motif of the World Tree.)

 

The shamanic motif of the Mare and the Spirit Wife leads to the term ‘Nightmare,’ which originally referred to the Old-Hag Syndrome.

The Old Hag Syndrome is otherwise known as the Bedroom Invader Experience, which is experienced when an individual inadvertently accesses hypnagogic trance.

An unprepared individual will invariably become terrified when accessing hypnagogic trance, wherein he/she will experience the manifestations of his/her deepest fears, which often involves sexual scenarios.

Whereupon the term, Old-Hag Syndrome refers to the visitation of a Succubus, whose initial manifestation is nightmarish, which induces the experience of intense pressure upon the body, the sensation of being (Sphinx) strangled, sleep paralysis, vivid hallucinations, and eventual lucid dreams.

Wherein an individual will feel as if he is being abducted by otherworldly (Alien) entities as well as experiencing out of body experiences.

The Shaman learns to control his fear, in order to ride the (inner TARDIS) ‘Night-Mare,’ rather than being ridden by her.

Whereupon she becomes his (Ally) Spirit Wife; hence the carved (World Tree/Axis-Mundi) handle of the Shamans (Mare) drum in the design, which represents his (trance) Spirit (Anima-Mundi) Wife.

(NOTE: The Mare/drum [trance symbol and tool] is seen to be tethered to the World Tree, which symbolically represents the spinal column of the Shaman. The Spirit Wife refers to what Yoga practitioners call the Kundalini Shakti, which is experienced as a liquid energy that is aroused to arise along the (World Tree) spinal column. the Kalahari Bushmen of South Africa call this inner energy, Num, which is aroused when a practitioner accesses hypnagogic trance, which the Bushmen call, Kia. In ‘trance dance’ culture of the [Rave] dance clubs, this inner energy is known as ‘The Rush!’)

 

The monotonous beat of the drum stimulates the Theta brain wave, which induces hypnagogic trance. The experience of hypnagogic trance is basically hypnotic induction.

The Theta brain wave is also associated with anxiety reduction, the active (day dreaming) imagination, lucid dreams and Zen meditative states.

The Theta brain wave is depicted in the design, which is also known as the hyper-suggestible state.

The inducement of the Theta brainwave allows for mental programming via the use of repetitive Mantas, such as the ecstatic songs (and trance dancing) of a shaman are effective at dispersing fear states, when sung in conjunction with the (Spirit Wife/Mare/Pony-Girl) drum.

SUCCUBUS MULTIVERSE DREAMING

Mephistophina, standing betwixt the Ida And Pingala (Autonomic Nervous System) pylons, Black And White as Mares, becoming as the dapple Grey eight-legged Night-Mare of Mercurial quick ‘silver’ Mercurius, arising along the (Central Nervous System) Sushumuna as the Anima-Mundi.

She be the ‘Da’at’ (Reptilian Brainstem) Sirius Star Girl Guide to trance ride into Lilith’s Harem Of The Multiverse Dream, wherein her Nightgaunt Succubae Witch Sisters govern over womb worlds to…lovingly… conjure as Jinn, made of bio-photon fire.

Though such be not that of Newage Hollywood love, of internalised relationship dynamics fueled by fantasies of unrealistic perfections.

A Succubus like a woman does the Valkyrie choosing; it is what the subconscious mind to know of a biological truth, the ‘Anima’ to reveal.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk goetia girls, lilith's harem, succubus, witch, ghost girls, ponygirl,

Although this be harsh upon those who have been rejected by a woman, leaving behind a broken heart; it is at such a time that the wounded of (Central Nervous System) heart be ‘opened’ to the ‘Anima,’ whose predatory dream fluctuations of the Succubus do then hunt down the fallen to choose upon the battlefield of life, likened to that of the carrion Crow of a Morrigan, who to rip through the seals of the Chakras to open.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_ponygirl_sleipnir_orobas_succubus_of_faustus_crow

But the chosen then has to control her, so as to microcosmic ride astral as the Night-Mare; otherwise, the ‘Anima’ to then take over of indulged in fantasies of a Ring-Pass-Not. If not controlled, the rider indulges in religious sentiments to worship the ‘Anima;’ hence becoming as the ridden, to never know of the rough magic along the Ley of lady sychronicity, who to Maya dance upon the mirrored path Ouroboros.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

The dreamer may come to a realisation that the Succubus allows a dreamer to tune into alternate selves, who to be in relationships upon some other alternate Earth, which to reveal that when becoming incorporeal, the consciousness of an individual naturally slides into an alternate self of a Tulku to fuse with, and what was known of a life before, becomes as an ethereal half remembered dream.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

Or that of knowing of inner Mind-Doll Tulpas, whose conjured microcosmic spin does weave macrocosmic synchronicities along the Leys, via which the dreamer can hunt down the, hunter, of another woman to meet at a place of bio-photon flame attraction.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

The Succubae can reveal many a dream secret to a chosen… shaman… Siberian shamans to know of, as well as those practitioners of other, still surviving elder shamanic cultures; whereupon in the Tantric Buddhist practice of Tibet the Succubae are called Dakinis who are manifold aspects of Shakti. The Dakinis are seen to be Wisdom Holders of dream Yoga.

Before the ascendancy of the ‘Animus’ worshippers of the patriarchy the ancestors of the European’s also had a shamanic understanding, which had investigated the ‘Anima.’ Alas, after five hundred years of a totalitarian inquisitional purge, the shamanic legacy of the European’s was nigh eradicated of genocide, spreading towards other cultures across the globe, which to still continue of imperialistic empire building.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

Perhaps it is all part of a process of dismemberment, like that of DNA self replication, wherein of 23rd angstrom, periodic mutations occur. But over the long stretches of time what goes around, comes around, Ouroboros, when the dismembered shaman is put back together into another form of a return.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

So, beware of the politically correct thought police who to trickster twist your words around, preferring candyfloss fairytales to promote; more so that of the Abrahamic worshippers of the deified ‘Animus,’ made as their Orwellian God and Devil, whose machismo Angels and butch Demons are listed in many a patriarchal ‘Playgirl’ grimoire.

The ‘Animus’ worshippers will duly castigate thee as being a vile pornographer, who to thence burn your ‘Anima’ conjurations upon their Inquisitional mind-control pyres of a moralistic Enartete Kunst!

“Why would they do so?” You might ask; well, it does appear that there is an underlying sex war behind it all, due to a deified gender focus, which can be seen as being an expression of an evolutionary flux, concerning the evolution of consciousness.

sleipnirdrumyahoocouk

Wherefore, the rebellious focus upon the symbolic expression of the ‘Anima’ is also part of this process, which might eventually lead to a balance occurring of inner space, lucid dream conjuring.

goetia-girls-ufo-girl-advert

But this will be dependent on others observing the obviously out of balance focus upon a deified ‘Animus,’ which of a religiously hewn patriarchal symbolic paradigm permeates all levels of culture, spreading world wide.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_triangle_of_art_conjuration_mephistophina_succubus_of_faustus_crow

Should you consider this analysis to be rather far fetched, all you have to do is to look at the fundamentalist scourge of the Middle East and that of home-ground to find Abrahamic mind-sets of a shared funda-mental insanity.

KUNDALINI SHAKTI MEPHISTOPHINA, GOING BEYOND MEPHISTOPHELES

The name of Mephistopheles is a composite of the Greek word, Megistos, which means, Greatest, and the name of the Olympic spirit of Mercury called, Ophiel, who is mentioned in many Grimoire. Ophiel is otherwise named Ariel in William Shakespeare’s, play, The Tempest. The name of Ophiel is also a composite name, which comprises of the Greek for Serpent (Oph) and the Hebrew El, meaning lord, or deity.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_mephistophina_kenzi_lost_girl_succubus_of_faustus_crow_book_advert

The translation of which would then be: ‘Greatest Serpent Deity.’ You then have, Megistos-Ophiel, thence leading you to Mephist and Opheles, who as Mephistpheles is essentially an alternate version of the ancient Greek God, called Hermes, the Roman’s called Mercury, whose symbol was the serpentine Caduceaus, looking like a (trident) trisula.

This is more so the case concerning the Hermetic deity, called, Hermes Trismegistos, Thrice ‘Greatest’ Hermes, the early Christian’s had demonised, whose name probably developed into the composite of Mephistopheles. This invariably led to the name of Mephistopheles being commonly interpreted from the Hebrew word, Mephitz, meaning ‘destroyer,’ and Tophel, ‘liar.’

The literal translation of the name would then be: ‘Destroyer Of Liars.’ This does not of course equate with the common Christian perception of Mephistopheles, who, as the, ‘Destroyer Of Liars,’ sounds more like a Hindu deity, as the ‘Destroyer of Maya/Illusion.’

goetia_girls_faustus_crow_succubus_art_book_evocation

Mephistopheles of German folklore leads you to the ancient Germanic tribes, who once worshipped the shamanic deity called Wotan, the Norse named as Odin, the Saxon’s knew as Woden, who the Roman’s had equated with Mercury.

Woden also has cultural links with ancient India; for his sacred colour is blue, as well as being singular of eye, who wields the trisula, called Gungnir; just like blue-nectar Shiva of the Hindu’s, who is the third-eye lord of Yoga, wielding the trisula, called Pashupatastra. Both of whom are the ‘Destroyers Of Worlds,’ being that of Maya/Illusions.

Although, one should actually say, that these deities communicate shamanic teachings of ‘Solve et Coagula,’ metaprogrmming, which destroy your limited illusions of reality. Woden’s name in particular was allocated to the third day of the week, which in German is Wodensdaeg, in English, Wodens-day, becoming Wednesday.

Should you then seek out a feminine version of Mephistopheles, to make modern of expression, to otherwise name as Mephistophina, the closest associative parallel would be Charles Addams artistic creation of Wednesday Addams, who has since become rather archetypal of a Goth icon; although Wednesday Addams is more akin of Gothic characteristics to the sphere of Saturn, rather than Mercury.

However, there is a more Mercurial version of Wednesday Addams, whose Goth girl character was depicted in the TV series: Lost Girl, called Kenzi, who is somewhat of a witty comedian and a fast talking thief. It just so happens that Mercury was classically associated with comedy and thieves.

goetia_girls_kenzi_lost_girl_dark_haired_goth_succubus_of_faustus_crow

You might say that a female version of Mephisopheles is pushing the envelope of symbolic believability or to otherwise point out that, such investigations into the symbolism behind an archetype, which has influenced popular culture down through the ages, has no value; or to growl, that one should not upset the established apple cart.

However, when to refer back to translation of,’Greatest Serpent Deity,’ you can equate said serpent with the Kundalini Shakti, as described in the practice of Yoga. The Kundalini Shakti is usually personified as a Goddess, who is also described as being a, ‘Fire Snake,’ which of an energy arises along your trisula spine of a Caduceaus, through the three levels of the unconscious, subconscious and conscious mind.

goetia_girls_ksenia_solo_kenzi_mephistopheles_mephistophina_dark_haired_girl_lucid_dream_succubus_of_faustus_crow copy

The Kundalini Shakti is also associated with three trisula colours, known as the Gunas, being black, white and red, which in the practice of Alchemy equates with the Nigredo, Albedo and the Rubedo stages of the (Hermes Trismegistos) Great Work.

goetia_girls_ksenia_solo_kenzi_mephistopheles_mephistophina_dark_haired_girl_art_muse_succubus_of_faustus_crow copy

The Nigredo is associated with hypnagogic trance ingress into the third-eye dream, wherein your emotion is implanted. This then leads to the Albedo of the bio-photon light, which illuminates your spun electron dreams of a fractal association, of thoughts, formulating into a corresponding dream scenario; said dream domain will be empowered by your initial emotional charge.

When to eventually awaken of rebirth, you then have the Rubedo of the Hypnapompic stage, where you feel that the dream experience has imprinted your nervous system; since the nervous system cannot tell the difference between a so called real experience, or that of a vividly imagined one; this is very much the case when you experience a (Great Work) lucid dream.

goetia_girls_ksenia_solo_kenzi_mephistopheles_mephistophina_lucid_dream_dark_haired_girl_succubus_of_faustus_crow copy

When these three alchemical colours of the Gunas are seen in relation to the physical characteristics of a Goddess, you then have her black hair, white skin and red lips, which would make her look like a Goth chick.

goetia_girls_lost_girl_mephistopheles_mephistophina_ksenia_solo_dark_haired_goth_kenzi_succubus_of_faustus_crow

The Kundalini Shakti is also known of in the practice of Alchemy, as the, Philosophers Stone, Quintessence, Anima-Mundi (World ‘Soul’/Tarot XXI) or the Mercurius, which is described as being an inner light.

This inner light of the bio-photon, emanates from amidst the mitochondrial (Double-Helix/Caduceaus/Serpentine) DNA, which is passed down from the mother to her children; hence, being feminine (Shakti) of source, whose light illuminates your dreams.

In other words, the ‘Great Serpent Deity,’ probably refers to the Kundalini Shakti, which of an inner experience is known of by other cultures, to term by other names; although, of commonality the serpent motif entwined with the feminine principle, unifies them all.

Wherefore, Mephistopheles was originally a female character, who as the Kundalini Shakti , to otherwise name as Mephistophina, she is conjured up by Faust, to thence Coitus Pactum arise along his (Gungnir/Pashupatastra) Caduceaus of a spinal column, who then illuminates his skull, like that of the orgasmic Big-Bang birth of the universe.

goetia_girls_lost_girl_mephistopheles_mephistophina_lucid_dream_stargate_ksenia_solo_dark_haired_art_muse_goth_kenzi_succubus_of_faustus_crow

Whereupon, Faust is more akin to a Yogi, a Western practitioner would equate with a Hermes Trismegistos, upon whose lap is seated his Succubus, Mephistophina.

goetia_girls_lucid_dream_kenzi_lost_girl_succubus_art_muse_of_faustus_crow

A Yogi would consider a Succubus as being an energetic fluctuation of his (World ‘Soul’) Shakti, to call a Dakini.

goetia_girls_succubus_art_muse_kenzi_lost_girl_of_faustus_crow

Faust does not sell his (Shakti) Soul of Abrahamic fear porn, he otherwise enters into a ‘Coitus Pactum’ with her of a ‘Sacred Marriage,’ when to contact his (Shakti) Soul within a (Great Work) lucid dream.

The ancient Norse shaman would call the Soul the, Fylgja; should the practitioner be a heterosexual male, the Fylgja will manifest as a (‘Anima’ Mundi) woman; hence Faustus Crow has conjured up Mephistophina.
