The Conjuring of varying entities and those worlds, which they occupy, many an Artist to know. The practice of Conjuration is engaged in whenever the Artist is confronted by a blank canvas onto which is Conjured a form. This requires an emotional connection with what is to be Conjured; for it is the emotional charge of the Artist, which animates what is being visualised.
The visualisation phase of an egg stage is when the thought processes automatically kick in; this generates a myriad number of symbolic associations, which cracks open the egg of an idea to take flight.
These symbolic associations are determined by what is being visualised. The visualistion will be of differing intensities depending upon the emotional charge of the Artist.
Most often than not, the visualisation will be more of an impression than a fully fleshed out form; at other times, it will be quite vivid, though fleeting.
Sometimes it will be very vivid of an overlapping ghost reality. Whatever is Conjured of a form, will be constructed from innumerable symbolic associations, which are derived from the memories of the Artist.
Everything that the Artist has ever experienced is stored within the subconscious, being the storehouse of memory. You then have a formula of: Emotion, Thought and Memory, which can be termed as the ‘Triangle Of Art.’ At the midst of the ‘Triangle Of Art,’ you have the ‘Eye’ of the ‘Imagination.’
It is the inner eye of the imagination, which, of a ‘Paranoiac-Critical Method’ example, fuses the memory of a Fox with a human figure of, say, a Hogwarts Witch of a schoolgirl, which then creates something else of a St Trinian ‘Exquisite Corpse’ Conjuration, you could knit-together as a Manga version of a Japanese Succubus, known as a Kitsune.
This will of course require the Artist to have the necessary ‘observational’ memories concerning Japanese culture, which will be Conjured up automatically.
If not, the Artist will then have to rely on references. Whatever the case, when the Artist observes everyday events, it is not done in a haphazard way; the Artist has to make it a habit of consciously transforming what is being observed into a sketch, let alone a painting within his/her imagination.
The character of a Kitsune does not exist in a void; wherefore, her Conjuration will then generate associations with everything Japanese drawn from memory of ‘re-remembering.’
So, when the Artist manifests her upon the canvas, it will then lead to an associative world being painted around her.
The trick is, the stronger the emotional connection the Artist has with the initial Conjured character of a Kitsune, it will then lead to a free-flow association into her world.
The intensity of the creative act, is its self a form of meditation, and like a martial art, it best occurs when the analytical mind does not interfere. This requires that the emotion is felt by the body; in other words, the emotion is transmuted into a feeling, a shaman would say is felt by the heart, where the ‘power of (hypnagogic state) trance’ resides.
This then leads to a (Theta brainwave) state of automatism, where the Artist is not thinking about what is being painted, it just manifests via the (pentagram) hand, guided by the eye of the imagination.
With continued practice it can initiate vivid dreams, leading to a state of lucidity; this will in turn engender concordant synchronicities.
The experienced synchronicities will reflect back the symbolic focus of the Artist, who, when to observe the synchronicities, to take further of artistry, becomes as a Shaman.
However if an individual is unprepared for the feed-back-loop of synchronicities, which will reflect back his/her ‘symbolic’ beliefs, such as dreaming about a subject, to then, upon awakening, suddenly overhear a conversation about what had been dream’t, or even prior thought; as well as losing and finding items under mysterious circumstances, or seeing an email from someone, he/she was thinking of, before seeing the email, etc, said individual might just become very paranoid.
The experienced paranoia is a reactive state of the unprepared conscious mind, which is esoterically termed as entering ‘Chapel Perilous;’ basically, the mind attempts to come to an understanding of what is going on, based upon what has been learn’t, which invariably does not allow for such phenomena to be recognised, whereby his/her belief system starts to fragment, being the Nigredo stage of the Great Work of Alchemy.
This can initially lead to an individual believing that his/her life is being subversively manipulated by secret agencies of the government, to even see men in black around him/her upon a synchronicity, or to believe he/she is being pursued by malign Satanists, Biblical demons, or Newage-Gnostic aliens, who experiences assailing Illuminati nightmares, along with those who feed into the fear, whose ulterior motive is to exacerbate the paranoia even further, which of a hidden agenda is to enslave him/her within their ring-pass-not symbolic construct, etc.
The Nigredo stage will continue of disintegrating madness until the individual realises of an Albedo stage of inner Alchemy, that his/her (microcosmic) dreams reflect back himself/herself, and likewise the feed-back-loop of concordant (macrocosmic) synchronicity.
When to then transform his/her symbolic beliefs, the dreams of the individual and the experienced synchronicities will then accordingly change of an Alchemical Rubedo stage; whereupon the individual becomes aware of the reality of Magic in his/her life, which is the goal of the ongoing Great Work to evolve consciousness. Hence the Artist, Austin Osman Spare extensively practiced (automatism) automatic-drawing, which he made as his symbolic Alchemy of (metaprogramming) sorcery practice.
Alas, there is hardly any documented examples of his technique, apart from what he had described in his esoteric writings.
But the Artist Kim Jung Gi demonstrates what Spare was speaking of who is a supreme Martial Artist of the Arts. There will of course be those who to argue that Gi’s work is not automatic, which of commonalty is usually defined as a return back to a childhood spontaneity by many a so called Modern artist drawing scribbles a 2001 Space Odyssey ape can too doodle, or that of allowing the subconscious to chaotically take over, as if it is some David Icke reptilian with a planet X mind of its Freudian own, or otherwise equated with archetypal entities possessing a Jungian Artist.
Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Modern art; but it has far more to do with ‘who you know,’ rather than ‘what you know.’ However, Gi has the childhood spontaneity of being at one with his subconscious mind, like Spare, to such an extent that his inner Conjuring of various characters (spirits) and their (dream) worlds Gi is able to ‘vividly visualise’ with his inner eye of re-remembering onto paper, without using any references, let alone avoiding being esoteric about his artistry, which to freak out many a square mind, who make up the majority of the audience. In other words, Gi draws as a child would do, who can… actually draw.
There are those square brained sceptics who argue that a Conjuration of a spirit is merely Hogwarts fantasy, who, when to dare practice, gibber their rituals, read out of a medieval Playgirl grimoire in an empty room, seeing nothing appearing. Well, what do they expect, they are not thinking correctly, who to have quaintly forgotten that the Art of Magic is that of Art.
The trick is, you have to think and act like an Artist, to otherwise practice Conjuring a spirit onto a page, within a book of shadows sketch-pad, to thence draw of manifestation; but first, you draw within your mind, whence your inner eye to then guide your pentagram hand.
You will then have a Succubus Art Muse to appear amidst your Triangle Of Art Imagination, to seer the Muse taking on an Art Model life of her own of a drawing, the sorcerer Artist Austin Osman Spare to have known, who was aware that the drawn image has an interactive informational reality within the experienced dream.
She to then guide your winged eye of the Artist into her uterine tunnel of the Active Imagination, which of Art, is Sorcery.
As an Artist, you to stand as the creator at the centre of your Magic Circle of an Art studio, divided of four quarters, surrounded by your elemental weapons of a Wand of a Brush, Palette of a Shield, Sword of a Palette Knife, and a Cup, wherein the colours of your Art are mixed of Alchemy.
The Altar is your Easel, upon which be the canvas of a one time cave wall to paint with Metals suspended in oils, when to conjure up a quintessential Succubus Art Muse out of your Triangle Of Art imagination.
Her Mind-Doll form of a symbolic expression can be knitted-together of an ‘Exquisite Corpse’ Tulpa, which of symbolic Alchemy, will pertain to one of the seven planetary (Chakra) spheres of an archetypal influence.
The initial two-dimensional image is then but a ‘doorway’ into your creative mind of an Artist, a conjured Succubus Art Muse to Symbolist inspire; who, depending upon your emotional intensity, may then manifest as a three-dimensional reality within the temple of a Surrealist ‘lucid dream.’
As a Sorcerer Artist, you might also observe that the conjured symbolism of a particular Succubus Art Muse within a microcosmic lucid dream, or that of a vividly imagined evocation, will generate concordant macrocosmic synchronicities.
Said synchronicities may lead you to meet up with a Muse of an Art Model, you have already depicted within a painting of oiled flesh, for yet another painting to model for, of Sorcery Art.
Such is what I explore of artistry, to take further of experimentation. Should you be one of those who to scream that you cannot draw, I am sure that you can draw a stick figure, like those depicted in Palaeolithic cave paintings, or likened to those of hieroglyphs, you can create as your colourful Sigils of Howling Conjuring.
NOTE: The video covering The Conjuring of Orobas oil painting is still a work in progress; I will do further video updates as the painting progresses, along with updates concerning my other paintings.

I am aware that my (unsane) work causes much ire to the square minded, who consider me to be quite insane. or to be verging on madness. My answer to the unimaginative squares is that of giving them the finger; while pointing at Dr Sidney Cohen.
As for those squares who think I take inordinate amounts of drugs, I to quote Salvador Dali: –
Others of rose-tinted-glasses often castigate my work as being vile pornography, whose politically-correct Thought Police square heads are up the slimy arses of those who consider my work to be far too tame, who of Biblical End-Of-Days entrenched tastes are moulded by Death Metal gore hedonism.
I care not for their Zoroastrian extremes of an Inquisitional puppet on a string Conquistador. (By the way, I did not get inspired by a stylish Juno Reactor video; my work has been around for some time on the Wyrd web to pirate tremble, long before said video using the crossed Keys symbolism, of a prior, 7th Gebo Rune [X] of [cross-bones] trance ingress into the [skull] dream, to make Shaman Chaos Magic lucid; wherein a horned Odin to Galdr conjure [Anima/Fylgia/Fetch) Valkyries via his Druden Runes of a meditative focus.)
Hence I will not pander to the brainwashed Shekel minds on many a cultic forum, whose brains are being upended by egocentric Zombie Shills, which of Samsara Psy-Ops, feeds their brain-dead competitive hunger for brainless attention!
There will always be vampiric arseholes, around the quarters of the wheel, whose elemental attacks are aimed at affecting your internal self-image. Their attacks can only affect you, if your internal self-image is wounded in a particular elemental quarter of the wheel, whether it be how you see yourself physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually, or all four of varying past hurts, which gets you to react at the midst of the elemental wheel, to unbalance.
One such attack could be that of you being called commercially shallow, by an individual, who of protest sets about giving stuff away for free. However, human nature being the way it is, said individual is then faced with others taking up all his/her time, to the point of being utterly vampirised.
Whereupon of a predictable outcome, the individual tells all, not to ask him/her anymore for freebies, who sets up shop somewhere else under another name, who to now charge for his/her time and effort, when to come to the realisation that there has to be a balanced exchange of energy, let alone remembering what he/she had previously labelled you as; whence, when to look in the mirror he/she sees himself/herself as being a hypocrite.
Over time you will notice that the attacks are tied in with periodic synchronistic feed-back-loops, which reflect back how you see yourself deep down; whereby validating the existence of your wounded self image, which you can gain an insight into, when to (Nagual) dream.
For example, Carlos Castaneda’s shaman mentor, Do Juan Matus termed the arseholes as being Petty Tyrants, who, reveal where you are hurt around the wheel; this is of course not their intention, they just want to fuck you up of a vampiric Samsara power game.
When you eventually heal your wounded self-image, (hence the terminology of Wounded Healer for a shaman) the synchronistic feed-back-loop accordingly changes; this then leads to the Petty Tyrants crap being returned! (Healer, Heal Thyself.)
Should you be in a position to observe the Petty Tyrants, such as on a cultic forum, for example, you can then sit back and watch the Petty Tyrants being hit with their own mirrored back shit, who will be faced with arseholes like themselves; for like attracts like, which then leads to their dialogue rapidly disintegrating.
The same applies, when to look at the bigger picture of an election, to observe of an insane circus, whose two elitist clowns reveal that democracy is an illusory facade, which, when recognised you can wake up from; but for there to be any change, it would require everyone to see it.
When to see the arseholes for what they truly are, they will invariably spontaneously combust into expletives saying that they are being psychically attacked, let alone cursed, etc, but the curse be their own selves of an affliction, they seek to afflict others with, of schoolyard Psy-Ops ego games.
