Whenever you speak or to write, you are engaging in the sorcery of ritual magic; the words that you use instantaneously ‘conjures’ up associative symbols of an ‘evocation’ amidst your triangle of art imagination.
If this does not occur, it is because you do not yet understand the sound associations with the corresponding symbols. In other words, you do not yet understand the language being utilised.
You can investigate these instantaneous symbolic associations, which are taking place within your subconscious mind, for yourself, by remembering your dreams upon awakening, to thereby analyse what triggered off your dream in the first place, which is invariably that of a word leading to an emotively charged symbol or versa vice. Such associations can be subversively influenced by others, which of a science is termed as neuromarketing, although, its science is based upon the techniques utilised by religion.
But you can take control over these outside influences, by personally observing the internal associative process when you attain lucidity within the dream, wherein you can utter a word of conjuration, such as a name (mantra) you have prior associated with a painting (mandala), photograph or sculpture etc, which has an archetypal quality.
For example, you can utilise an image (mandala) you have associated with a Succubus, which has been prior meditated upon.
This will then generate instantaneous symbolic associations, whose correspondences formulate into the manifestation of a (mantra) named Succubus within the dream.
Since you have attained lucidity within the symbolic arena of the dream, which to all intents and purposes feels very real of a fully immersive experience, the Succubus is now more than just a two-dimensional image of a symbol, she becomes as a three-dimensional interactive sensory reality.
Another example: imagine an artist who at a conscious level is painting an image of a Succubus whose painting involves the usage of planetary metals suspended in coloured oils to paint. The painting of the Succubus has been named of a title, which of a name has been utilised as a mantra.
The artist repetitively intones the mantra of the named Succubus, while painting her image of a mandala, since its creation will automatically involve meditation, along with intermittent periods of active-imagination, involving visionary episodes concerning the Succubus being painted.
The artist will also visualise an abstract symbol of a constructed sigil over his painting, which represents his symbolised desire of a seal. At a certain juncture of his intense focus, the artist experiences a short duration of hypnagogic trance, which can be extended with practice, where he will sense that another part of himself has taken over painting the image.
This other self has been prior associated with an alternate self-image of an Avatar to assume, like that of an actor playing a part of a character, whose female counterpart is the Succubus, via whom he introverts his erotic ‘focus of desire’. He doesn’t have to consciously think about the construction of the painting any longer, it has become subconscious of automatism. It is at this point that the employed symbolism has been implanted into the subconscious informational domain of the electron dream.
When the symbolism of the painting has been successfully implanted into the subconscious mind of the artist, he will then experience ensuing dreams about the Succubus he has painted; much of which will be quite surreal of artistry.
The initial dreams will be that of trigger-dreams, which might lead to him becoming conscious within the microcosmic realms of the dream, when he recognises the trigger-symbols association with the Succubus he has painted. These trigger-symbols will also manifest as concordant macrocosmic (oracles, signs, portents and omens) synchronicities, which are indicative of the (water) dream merging with (land) waking reality; whereupon he becomes amphibious of awareness.
The artist may also experience a visitation of the Succubus at the hypnagogic point of sleep; which, if he isn’t prepared for of an eventuality, it will initially manifest as the Old Hag Syndrome involving sleep paralysis, where he will endure being pounced upon by a shadowy entity. If the artist can overcome his fear, and thereby remember the name of the Succubus he has been focusing upon, when to either think or to call out the name, the shadowy entity will then assume the form of his conjured Succubus.
The artist might have sussed out the riddle of the Sphinx, which of a symbolic formula is made up of four elemental creatures, being that of a Woman’s head and torso, a body of a Lioness, having Eagle’s wings along with a Snake headed tail. However you also have a tale about a prince called Oedipus. It is sad that he took on the challenge of answering the riddle of the Sphinx who was sizing up Oedipus to be her next victim.
She asked; “what goes on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon and three in the evening?” Oedipus thought for a moment. Then he replied “The answer is Man. He crawls on all fours as a baby, then walks on two feet as an adult, and then walks with a cane in old age.” What Oedipus was told of numbers, when added together adds up to the number nine, which is associated with the precession of the equinoxes.
Oedipus successfully answered the riddle of the Sphinx, which indicates she is associated with the process of time. More so that of a closed timelike curve, whose ring of time points at an Ouroboros of eternal recurrence, which of a tessearact experience is that of ‘Intrusive Nostalgia, Re-Remembering.’ But there be many another ring of time myriad, encircling parallel universes next door.
The Snake headed tail of the Sphinx represents the emotive charge of the artist, which is cohered and directed by his eroticised conceptual focus upon the Woman, whom represents his mind-doll. If the artist internally generates a potent emotional charge, which reaches an ecstatic state, it will initiate the arousal of an electrical sensation, like that of a slithering serpent arising along the back of the neck towards the cerebellum, which leads to hypnagogic trance. The symbolism the artist has associated with the Woman is then implanted into his subconscious, which initiates a dream visitation of his mind-doll, who is associated with the predatory Lioness, where he might experience the aforesaid Old Hag Syndrome.
Should his fear overwhelm him, he will sense that he is being strangled, which is indicative of the activation of the reptilian brainstem. Whatever his fear is, it will become his worst nightmare made manifest; the trick is to rein in and ride the Night-Mare, rather than the nightmare riding him. Should the artist have been successful in internalising his sexual impulse of an emotive charge in order to negate his fear, the mind-doll will assume the form of his erotic desire, when he calls out her name; wherefore binding her to his will.
This will then lead to an ecstatic out of body experience, which is represented by the wings of the Eagle; whereupon he is then enabled to access the hall of records, which is that of his lucid dream, where he becomes aware of the Ouroboros.
When the artist attains full lucidity within his electron dream hall of records, to browse, like that of the internet, of an informational web, he will observe that whatever associative symbolism he has associated with his Succubus of a world, it too will also manifest around her of an (informational associative fractal dream domain) alternate reality.
Her universe is made up of corresponding memories; wherefore you have the term of ‘the hall of records’ as well as the Hebrew word of ‘Da’at,’ which means, belief. Basically, the beliefs of the artist will determine what he tunes into of a dream world.
So, if an artist has painted a Succubus to look like a Steam-Punkette, he might find himself entering into an alternate Steampunk Wizard Of Oz Nikola Tesla world, of a fully immersive reality, or perhaps he has painted a Native American Succubus residing near unto Area 51 Dreamland to thence remote-view. The artist is only limited by the extent of his imagination going beyond the limits of indoctrinated beliefs.
Should the artist engage in surrealistic dream sorcery concerning his painting of a Succubus, the painting becomes far more than just a two-dimensional image; it otherwise becomes that of a ‘doorway,’ into another world, and that of a spirit repository of a Succubus, he can thereby conjure into manifestation, within a three-dimensional fully immersive lucid dream, to thence illustrate two-dimensional of image, within a grimoire.
