Artemisia absinthium, is the scientific name for the plant called grand Wormwood, which is the main ingredient of the alcoholic elixir called Absinthe. Wormwood is a species of Artemisia, which is native to temperate regions of Eurasia. The ingredients of Absinthe also include green anise, sweet fennel, and other Witchcraft herbs.

(The Artwork Above is available as an Art Print, which depicts a female version of Mephistopheles. If you are interested, please Click the Image Above to see the Full Artwork and for further details.)

In Witchcraft lore Artemisia absinthium is associated with the planetary sphere of fiery Mars and the elements fire and air. Due to the association with Mars you also have the correspondence with the colour red. Also when the colour red is intensely stared at, it leaves behind a green after-image when your eyes are closed, and likewise when green is stared at, it leaves behind a red after-image.

As for the name Artemisia, it is derived from the name of the ancient Greek Goddess Artemis, whose sacred animal is a Bear, which is often associated with female shamans, especially across Eurasia unto Hyperborean Siberia. (There are many names for a male shaman in Siberia. But there is only one name for a female shaman, which is Udagan, meaning a Bear. Udagan also has associations with a fire, specifically the hearth.)

Shamanic use of Wormwood involved macerating its leaves, which were then soaked in wine for several days around the Moon phases, then ritually strained. The Wormwood wine is usually used for facilitating astral projection, divination and inducing visions.

Absinthe is commonly referred to , as ‘la fée verte,’ the Green Fairy, or alternatively as the Green Witch, by many a conjuring Artist who seeks visions. She was the liquid Art Muse for a number of rebellious Artists who made nineteenth century France, especially Paris a centre of artistic life. For example Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Degas partook of the essence of the Green Fairy who made her a subject of their paintings.

Absinthe was also known as the Green Muse, Green Ghost, Green Demoness, or the Green Goddess, and by other supernaturally inclined titles. But it was more commonly called the Queen Of Poisons:

“What is there in Absinthe that makes it a separate cult? Even in ruin and in degradation it remains a thing apart: its victims wear a ghastly aureole all their own, and in their peculiar hell yet gloat with a sinister perversion of pride that they are not as other men.” Aleister Crowley, The Green Goddess (1918).

Scientists have looked into the unusual effects of the Green Fairy. Under the title, ‘Absinthe Makes Neurons Run Wild,’ Corinna Wu, who writes for the Science News magazine, described scientific research in 2000 into the effects of the Wormwood herb on the Artist’s brain.

The research was conducted by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley and Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, the study discovered that Wormwood, as well as other Witchcraft herbs in Absinthe, cause “CNS cholinergic receptor binding activity”. This, according to scientists, has the effect of improving cognitive functions of the Artist’s brain.

Although the shamanic and medicinal usage of Wormwood has been known of since very ancient times, popular legend relates that the Wormwood elixir of Absinthe began as an all-purpose patent remedy, when it had been first created by Dr. Pierre Ordinaire, a French version of doctor Frankenstein living in Couvet, Switzerland, around 1792. Ordinaire was unaware that his all-purpose patent remedy would one day be seen as a concoction of the devil, ensnaring the consumers addiction.

However, the exact date of Absinthe’s creation varies depending on the colourful alchemist account. Ordinaire’s alchemical recipe was passed on to the Henriod sisters of Couvet, who proceeded to sell Absinthe as a medicinal elixir, a Faustian sorcerer would very likely drink with Werewolf relish.

In Dr Faust’s grimoire, entitled, Hollenzwang it describes ‘Mephistophiel’ having a visionary form, appearing firstly like that of a ‘fiery Bear.’

The vision of the fiery Bear manifested when Dr Faust conjured the infernal spirit amidst the crossroads, surrounded by the wild wood of Wittenberg.

The shamanic symbolism of the fiery Bear may allude to an Artemis ‘she Bear,’ and in turn the Witchcraft herb, Artemisia absinthium.

The Hollenzwang and other Faustian grimoires are often described as being medieval of date. But in fact most of the grimoires were created in the 17th, 18th or even the 19th century, when Absinthe took centre stage among the Dracula aristocracy and in turn the fed upon common folk.

This was especially the case during the 19th century in Parisian France, in particular, where many a Decadent Artist, such as Oscar Wilde or Félicien Rops sought out the Green Witch, bestowing visions.

Image result for penny dreadful

You can rebelliously re-imagine Faust as a Sorcerer Artist, likened to Austin Osman Spare, drinking copious amounts of Absinthe prior to conjuring up a fiery red vision of a she-Bear, who then assumes the spectral guise of a salacious Nun wearing a green habit.

Little wonder then that Faust engaged in the Tantric Osculum Infame with the Green Witch, when to have entered into a Coitus Pactum with her, within an Absinthe induced Red-light district lucid dream.

He no doubt also smoked large amounts of Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) before he rode the visiting Night-Mare of his Fallen Anima, who revealed to him that Warlocks have their Anima, whereas Witch-Nuns have their deified Animus made as a God/Devil.

DISCLAIMER. Absinthe is considered as being a hallucinatory drink by some, whereas others do not experience it having any such affect.

Related image

This may be due to the differences in recipe, some of which may have once included Cannabis, and perhaps even Psilocybin in some prior cases.

Related image

The hallucinatory qualities of Absinthe was sought out by Artists, which gave Absinthe its nigh occult mystique. But the establishment propagandized the supposed hallucinatory effects of Absinthe as a means to ban it, which was mainly due to pressure from Wine producers, during the late 19th century, just as Hemp and Cannabis was banned because of the paper industry.

Related image

Absinthe is presently seen as having its inebriating effects because of its high alcohol content. Hence the reason why it is diluted with water prior to consuming the drink.

This involves an elaborate and rather arcane ritual. Drinking Absinthe straight was, and still is considered as being uncouth. As for Wormwood, the herb does have medicinal qualities, whether partaken in Absinthe or not.

DOCTOR WHO SHAMAN SIDDHI

Posted in Alien, Art, Chaos Magic, Dr Who, Goetia Girls, Lucid Dreaming, Occultism, Science Fiction, Shamanism, Sorcery, Succubus, Surrealism, Time Travel, Tulpa Creation, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2017 by FAUSTUS CROW

There are those who see my work as having no symbolic foundation or proof of an elder influence concerning a focus upon the archetypes of the ‘Anima.’ Whereas the Abrahamic foundation of the ‘Animus’ fixated grimoires have a historical lineage in the Middle East, which had been later appropriated by Rome’s empire. However, there are numerous examples of a symbolic focus upon the ‘Anima,’ which far-predates the Abrahamic gender focus upon the ‘Animus.’ Alas, there are hardly any examples of it, if at all, in European lore.

But, then what do you expect, not much has survived in regards to the pre-Christian shamanic traditions of Europe, due to the prior Witch burning’s conducted by Rome’s church, which lasted for over 500’yrs of tyrannical rule, when its Holy Inquisition committed mass genocide across Europe unto the Americas; wherefore ancient origins have been nigh eradicated.

So you will have to look into other elder cultures, who once shared ancient cross-cultural connections with Europe; an example being the European discovery of the Gundestrup cauldron of (Soma) ‘Somras,’ which is connected to India, whose peoples have not yet forgotten their own ancestral-self-identity.

There is an intriguing painting, painted by Raja Ravi Varma (1848-1906) depicting the Hindu deity called Ganesh who is surrounded by Eight ‘Anima’ fluctuation Goddesses. These ‘eight’ Goddesses are personified Siddhis.

Image result for raja ravi varma painting ganesh

The Siddhis are spiritual, paranormal, supernatural, or otherwise magical powers, abilities, and attainments, which are the products of spiritual advancement through Sādhanās, such as meditation and Yoga. The term Rddhi (Pali: Iddhi, “psychic powers”) is often used interchangeably in Buddhism.

One of the ‘eight’ Siddhis is the ability of having unrestricted access to all places, across space and throughout time. This does not mean that you can miraculously teleport your physical body wherever you desire, but such can be achieved by your conscious awareness, when accessing a lucid dream. The point of the shamanic exercise is to consciously project your ‘Five Senses’ into another space-time locale, with full awareness, when attaining a ‘Sixth Sense’ lucid dream; wherein your third eye is opened.

Should you creatively utilise your TARDIS imagination, this particular Siddhi can be associated with the science fiction character of Doctor Who, whose characteristics are none too different to that of a Shaman. The shamanic character of Doctor Who can be assumed as an Avatar within a lucid dream, when ‘meditating’ upon the symbol of Doctor Who’s TARDIS, in league with the ‘fourth’ (Ansuz) Rune.

In this case the Ansuz/Rune Siddhi is personified as a Goddess/Succubus, whose conjured manifestation within a lucid dream, enables the conjuring dreamer to attain the inner experience of becoming like Doctor Who, to thence remote-view other far off places and times.

I am not talking about taking on the guise of a particular Doctor Who out of the series, here. Doctor Who is more of an ageless inner archetype, who as mentioned, is none too different a Shaman, whose TARDIS is otherwise that of an ‘eight’-legged-Mare, which symbolically represents the power of hypnagogic (Phase) trance.

(The Horse/Mare Rune is the nineteenth Rune called Ehwaz. In the Southern Siberian Altai region of Pazyryk, where a number of tattooed ice mummies have been discovered, there are also horse burials; some of the horses are bedecked in ritualistic attire, looking as if they have eight legs, wearing elaborate head-dresses, having Reindeer horns.) 

“-a remarkable mask and breast collar for a horse, from around the 3rd-4th century B.C., from the Pazyryk culture of the Altai – a region in central Siberia” "Pazyryk is the name of an ancient people who used the stone covered burial mound or...

Doctor Who’s character is very likely based upon the ancient shamanic deity of the Norse, called Odin, the Saxon’s called Woden, whose sacred colour is blue. Odin’s names are many, and each of his myriad names are that of an alternate guise to shape-shift into; whereupon he is ultimately known as the unknowable one, because his consciousness is formless, having no limitation of a definite form.

Image result for doctor who

Odin means Light/Ecstasy Master, which was originally derived from the Southern Siberian Altaic word, Odqan, which means Fire King.

image

Odin/Woden is seen to have a singular eye, which refers to the third eye. He is known as the lord of the Runes, who wields a Rune (Word/Sound) spear (trident/trisula) named Gungnir, whereas Doctor Who has his ‘Sonic’ screwdriver.

Image result for doctor who sonic screwdriver

Odin/Woden also rides an ‘eight’-legged-Mare called Sleipnir, which is none too dissimilar to Doctor Who’s blue TARDIS when travelling the nine-worlds of the (multiverse) world tree of Yggdrassil.

orobas_goetia_dr_who_succubus_companions_time_travel_animation

And like Doctor Who he has female assistants called Valkyries, who are essentially his personified Siddhis.

Related image

Odin/Woden can be equated with the Hindu deity called Shiva, whose sacred colour is also blue, having a third eye of a DMT producing pineal gland.

He is regarded as being a master rather than a God, who is formless, limitless, transcendent and an unchanging absolute Brahman, and the primal Atman (soul, self) of the universe/multiverse. Odin/Woden and Shiva can also be seen as being similar to the Haitian deity, Baron Samedhi.

Shiva has many benevolent and fearsome Doctor Who manifestations. His benevolent aspects, has him being depicted as an omniscient Yogi (Shaman) who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash as well as being a householder with his wife Parvati and his two children, ‘Ganesh’ and Kartikeya.

When assuming his fierce aspects, Shiva ‘polices’ the multiverse, whereupon he is often depicted slaying malign influences just as Odin/Woden/Doctor Who are known to do.

Shiva is also called Adiyogi Shiva, who is regarded as being the patron deity of Yoga, meditation and the Arts.

Many of the (Kam) Shamans of North Central Asia hold Shiva in high esteem, who place Shiva’s ‘AUM/OM’ trident/trisula amidst their (Oboos) altars.

Image result for aum

Whereupon the ancient (Kam) Shamans also tended to wear the blue vestments of Shiva when inducing endogenous DMT (Soma) ‘Somras’ production within their own bodies of inner (blacksmith craft) alchemy.

The blue wearing Shamans are called (Khara Kam) black Shamans, whose practice involves the assumption of Shiva’s guise within their lucid (TARDIS) dreams.

Related image

When lucid within the dream the (Khara Kam) Shaman can then (AUM/OM) vibrate the dream upon an uttered (Rune) mantra, in order to then conjure up the eight personified Siddhis as his (Succubi/Succubae) spirit wives, and each of the Siddhis are conjoined with an Avatar of the conjuring Shaman.

The (Khara Kam) Shamans do not worship Shiva as their God, they otherwise seek to emulate him as being the first horned Shaman/Artist, who created the deities to paint upon a cave wall.

Image result for shiva kali avatar

And just as he can create as an Artist, he can also destroy what has been created of a form, being that of a belief, to then recreate it anew, to go beyond its limit; this is the evolution of consciousness, which has no limits.

NOTE: The modern symbolism of Doctor Who has an emphasis on a as yet unattainable futuristic technology, just as the Gods and Goddesses of mythology manifest powers everyday mortals only know of as fantasy.

The symbolism of Doctor Who can be traced back to an ancient mythological source where you find the Shaman, whose abilities are not mere fantasy.

Image result for shiva kali avatar

The Shaman experiences the mythological reality within his self-induced lucid dreams, where a technology of a time machine is otherwise seen as an internal (Siddhi) ability, which can be achieved.

Image result for shiva kali avatar

The Hindu Night-Mare Goddess, Kali is associated with the great wheel of time. Wherefore her Shakti power will empower a time machine, which can be symbolically translated into a meditation image of an eight-legged (Siddhi) Mare. 

Related image

When the Shiva Shaman consciously recognises the trigger-symbol of the eight-legged Mare within a lucid dream, he can then remote-view ride her as his Kali TARDIS. 

NOTE 2: Kali is an aspect of Durga, also known as Devi, Shakti and by numerous other names, who is a principal and popular form of Hindu Goddess. She is a warrior Goddess, whose mythology is centred around combating malign and demonic forces, which threatens the peace, prosperity and Dharma of the good. She is the fierce form of the protective mother Goddess, who is willing to unleash her Kali anger against those committing evil.

Durga is depicted in the Hindu pantheon as a fearless woman riding a Tiger, which is of similarity to the Norse Goddess called Freyja, who is the wife/lover of Odin/Woden. Durga has a retinue of female spirits called Dakinis, which in Europe would be considered as being none too different to (Succubi) Succubae.

Freyja likewise has a retinue of female spirits called Valkyries, whose nature is the same as the Dakinis. Durga appears in Indian texts as the wife of the God Shiva, as another form of Parvati or mother Goddess.

As you can probably deduce, there are many cross-cultural symbolic parallels between Hindu and Norse/Saxon mythology concerning Shiva and Odin/Woden, Durga/Kali and Freyja, as well as the Dakinis and Valkyries. Wherefore, the ‘Siddhis’ being personified as Goddesses (Dakinis/Valkyries) can be seen as (Succubi) Succubae to list within a Grimoire of the Fallen ‘Anima.’

SHAMAN TRANCE TARDIS HORSE DRUM

Posted in Art, Chaos Magic, Dr Who, Goetia Girls, Love Magic, Lucid Dreaming, Occultism, Sex Magic, Shamanism, Sorcery, Succubus, Surrealism, Tarot, Time Travel, Tulpa Creation, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 29, 2017 by FAUSTUS CROW

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 SPIRIT DRUM LUCID DREAMING

Shaman Spirit Drum Siberian Trance by MARDUN

The Artwork depicts a Yakut Shaman, whose trance drum is symbolically seen to be the genie bottle abode of the his Spirit Wife, who visits him within his lucid dreams.

The Artwork is available as an Art print or a shirt design, etc; if you are interested, Check Out my Redbubble shop, Please Click Here.

The European classification of the Spirit Wife is usually based upon a medieval perception, which considers the Spirit Wife to be a demonic entity, called a Succubus.

Western psychology, during the Soviet era, once considered the Spirit Wife complex of Siberian shamanism and that of other shamanic cultures to be a mental aberration, or that of fantasy prone individuals indulging themselves in erotic delusions. However, the psychologist Carl Jung otherwise saw the Spirit Wife/Succubus as being an archetypal aspect of the ‘Anima.’

Jung saw the feminine archetype of the ‘Anima’ as being the personified intermediary with the psychic powerhouse of the subconscious, whose myriad female forms are encountered within ‘lucid’ dreams, from whom a Shaman derives his psychic abilities, an Artist is inspired by as his Art Muses.

The motif of the Spirit Wife is known to the Yoga practitioner as Shakti, whose numerous feminine aspects are called Dakinis, which is also very much part of Tibetan Buddhist dream Yoga practices as well as Siberian shamanism.

For example, the Goldi tribe of Siberia clearly distinguish between a female tutelary spirit, known as an Ayami, which in Western occult practice is of similarity to the (HGA) Holy Guardian Angel, (Jung would also see the HGA as being the ‘Anima,’) who chooses the shaman.

Whereas the helping spirits, (Jung would see as being the myriad aspects of the ‘Anima’) the Goldi call Syven, an occultist would call (Succubae/Succubi) Demons, which are subordinate to the Ayami. The Syven are granted to the Shaman by the Ayami herself. The Altaic name, Ayami means, ‘Silk Twisted In Beauty,’ as in a horse’s mane. The Siberian shaman in particular sees the drum as his Mare, who too is his Spirit Wife, whom he trance rides as an eight-legged female centaur into conscious dreaming.

 

According to the ethnologist and anthropologist, Leo Sternberg, the Goldi explain the relations between the Shaman and his Ayami by a complex sexual emotion. Below is an experience related by a Goldi shaman:

“Once I was asleep on my sick-bed, when a spirit approached me. It was a very beautiful woman. Her figure was very slight, she was no more than half an arshin (71 cm.) tall. Her face and attire were quite as those of one of our Gold women.

Her hair fell down to her shoulders in short black tresses. Other shamans say they have had the vision of a woman with one half of her face black, and the other half red. She said: ‘I am the “Ayami” of your ancestors, the Shamans. I taught them shamaning. Now I am going to teach you. The old shamans have died off, and there is no one to heal people. You are to become a shaman.’

Next she said: “I love you, I have no husband now, you will be my husband and I shall be a wife unto you. I shall give you assistant spirits. You are to heal with their aid, and I shall teach and help you myself. Food will come to us from the people.”

I felt dismayed and tried to resist. Then she said, “If you will not obey me, so much the worse for you. I shall kill you.”

She has been coming to me ever since, and I sleep with her as with my own wife, but we have no children. She lives quite by herself without any relatives in a hut, on a mountain, but she often changes her abode. . . . Sometimes she comes under the aspect of an old woman, and sometimes under that of a wolf, so she is terrible to look at.

Sometimes she comes as a winged tiger. I mount it and she takes me to show me different countries. I have seen mountains, where only old men and women live, and Villages, where you see nothing but young people, men and women: they look like Golds and speak Goldish, sometimes those people are turned into tigers.

Now my ‘Ayami’ does not come to me as frequently as before. Formerly, when teaching me, she used to come every night.’

She has given me three assistants-the ‘Jarga’ (the Panther), the ‘Doonto (the Bear) and the ‘Amba’ (the Tiger).

They come to me in my dreams, and appear whenever I summon them while shamanising. 

If one of them refuses to come, the ‘Ayami’ makes them obey, but, they say, there are some who do not obey even the ‘Ayami.’ When I am shamaning, the ‘Ayami’ and the assistant spirits are possessing me; whether big or small, they penetrate me, as smoke or vapour would.

When the ‘Ayami’ is within me, it is she who speaks through my mouth, and she does everything herself.

When I am eating the ‘Sukdu’ (the offerings) and drinking pig’s blood (the blood of pigs is drunk by shamans alone, lay people are forbidden to touch it), it is not I who eat and drink, it is my ‘Ayami’ alone.”

NOTE: The quoted material concerning the Ayami is derived from: Mircea Eliade, Shamanism, op. cit., PP. 72-3, quoting Leo Sternberg, ‘Divine Election in Primitive Religion’ (1924), PP. 476 ff. cf.. Shamanism, PP. 42l ff., for autobiographies of South-Indian Savara male shamans and female shamans, whose marriages to (Anima – Animus) spirits are in striking parallel to the documents collected by Sternberg.

SHAMAN DRUM SIBERIAN TRANCE

Posted in Art, Chaos Magic, Goetia Girls, Lucid Dreaming, Occultism, Sex Magic, Shamanism, Sorcery, Succubus, Time Travel, Tulpa Creation, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2017 by FAUSTUS CROW

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.

The Artwork is available as an Art print and a shirt design, which concerns Time Travelling within a lucid dream, such is indeed possible, since much of the reported precognitive and retrocognitive phenomena occurs when attaining hypnagogic trance ingress into a lucid dream. (If you are interested, I have written an account of a personal experience about riding the Night-Mare. Click Here.)

In ancient shamanic cultures, such as those of North Central Asia unto Siberia, the state of hypnagogic trance was symbolised as a Mare. Hence you have the European term ‘Nightmare,’ which was associated with the shamanic spirit wife complex, or otherwise known as a, Succubus, whose hypnagogic state visitations initially induce what is called the Old Hag Syndrome, also known as the Bedroom Invader Experience, the ancient Greek’s termed as the Sphinx. (I have written a personal account of the Sphinx experience. Click Here.)

As for the Artwork, it depicts a Steampunk poster from an ‘Alternative Locale III Earth,’ during the Great Exhibition of 1851, where the Sorcerer Artist, Faustus Crow has presented his Necronomicon Time Machine of a psychic installation.

“When the author H.G. Wells to have conjured The Fifty-fifth spirit called Orobas from out of Crow’s Necronomicon, Orobas manifested amidst his Triangle Of Art Imagination as a Night-Mare.

“She to have then descended upon Well’s sleep paralysis afflicted corporeal frame as a strangling ‘Sphinx’ as he inadvertently accessed hypnagogic trance.” 

“But after Well’s had attained a lucid dream, Orobas then manifested as a Pony Girl Art Muse, he to have ridden as his Witch ‘Mare’ of the ‘Night’ Time Machine, who enabled Well’s to remote-view browse the Zodiac Ages of the vibrating Ouroboros.”

When practicing Surrealist dreaming, the dreaming Artist will also have to make it a H.G. Wells habit of noting down his/her TARDIS dream adventures in a personal Necronomicon; for the Zodiac Ages have dead names to Howl out, of barbarous Mantra.

Wherefore the dreamer attains the Secret of the Sphinx, whose symbolism the ancient Egyptian’s and Greek’s associated with remote-viewing the Ouroboros of time within lucid dreams, H.G Wells later alluded to with his Time Machine.

The Artwork was used in my Art book Grimoire, entitled, ‘Goetia Girls: Book Two,’ which is available from Createspace and Amazon, under my author’s name, Faustus Crow.

The above watercolour painting is provisionally entitled: Mephistophina. The artwork is A4 in size, which was initially drawn in Derwent and Caran Da’che watercolour pencils on 300g/m Aquafine watercolour paper, then painted, involving some burnishing.

The original Artwork is presently on Sale, on Saatchi Art; if you are interested, Please Click Here.

The artwork depicts a female version of Mephistopheles, who is commonly considered to be a name of a male spirit in the Faustian legend, who in return for his assistance, Faust signs away his soul as depicted in Marlowe’s and Goethe’s grandiose Church plays. The origin of the conception and name of Mephistopheles has been the subject of much learned debate among numerous scholars down the ages, whose all male pantheon of a deified ‘Animus.’ has entirely negated the feminine principle of the ‘Anima,’ yet none to really question, why?

As of per usual commonality in the numerous Playgirl Grimoires frequenting many a Hogwarts bookshop, you will find in Dr Faust’s Höllenzwang that (Mephistopheles) Mephistophiel is considered to be one of the seven great phallic princes of hell, who is seen standing under the planet Jupiter.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_painting_mephistophina_succubus_of_faustus_crow

The regent of the planet Jupiter is called Zadkiel, an enthroned machismo angel of the deified ‘Animus,’ made as an all-father-fixation God, named Jehovah.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_mephistophina_succubus_of_faustus_crow

The artwork is loosely based upon an illustration of Mephistopheles, as found in the Grimoire, entitled the, Threefold Coercion of Hell; also called, Cabalae nigrae, or the Magia naturalis et innaturalis as well as the Black Raven, which is said to have been authored by Doktor Johannes Faust.

The Grimoire illustration is listed as being plate 10 in the Threefold Coercion Of Hell, which depicts the first appearance of Mephistopheles, manifesting as a ‘fiery Bear.’ He then later manifests of fairer appearance as a little man with a black cape, having a bald head like a monk, who could be seen as a Bonpo Tibetan Buddhist practitioner of Tantric dream Yoga, since its ancient practice would most definitely piss off the worshippers of the deified ‘Animus,’ made as a Jehovah/God/Allah – Devil/Lucifer/Shaitan.

However, if Faust was truly a rebel, of a ‘heterosexual’ orientation, he would have no doubt noted, just like the psychologist Carl Jung, that the all male pantheon of a patriarchal ‘Animus’ fixation has castigated the feminine principle of the ‘Anima’ out of the spiritual equation as the Fallen.

Wherefore, as a rebel, he would seek out to conjure what has been cast into the abyss, whence to discover a real Necronomicon.

Hence, Faust would reverse the polarity, by conjuring up a Succubus ‘Anima’ fluctuation to name Mephistophina, who would then be in Faust’s mind one of the rebel Succubae of the seven planets, you could equate with the seven Chakras of Yoga practice.

To Faust himself, being a somnambulist and medium, Mephistophina has a real existence; she would be the personification of the transcendental Fallen ‘Anima’ subject of Faust, an experience familiar in dreams, and more especially in the visions of Siberian shamans.

Many of the Siberian shamans practice Nigredo trance and Albedo (fiery) lucid (cave) dreaming, via which they engage themselves with the ‘fiery’ Bear (female shaman) spirit, named Udagan, who Rubedo rebirths them back into the world, renewed.

Mephistophina would thus be a familiar spirit, akin to the Udagan of the Siberian shaman, who is of similarity to the inspiring ‘daemon’ of Socrates; and being an Entartete Kunst archetype, censored by ‘closeted’ theologians, Mephistophina would also represent a rebellion against the all male, Right-Hand-Path paradigm of a deified ‘Animus,’ made as a God.

It is suggested, then, in the light of modern research into lucid dreaming, that Mephistophina, though being a two-dimensional Grimoire image of a meditative aid, becomes as a three-dimensional interactive reality within a (sexagram/sixth-sense) ‘Coitus Pactum’ lucid dream; whereby the ‘Osculum infame,’ takes on a whole different meaning. The Osculum infame is the name of a supposed ritual greeting upon meeting with the Devil. The name means The Shameful Kiss, or The Kiss of Shame since it involved kissing the anus and genitalia of the (Mephistopheles) Devil.

A heterosexual male mage kissing the butt end of the‘Animus’ archetype of a Mephistopheles, would find the Osculum infame, to be a very shameful act indeed, unless his sexual preference is otherwise of orientation. Not too sure about how heterosexual Witches feel about kissing the behind of their ‘Animus.’ Although it is said that 47% of women read superhero Grimoire comics, which feature chiselled chinned, sculpted males, wearing colourful skin tight leotards, revealing their tight Baboon butts. Apparently women, like tight Baboon butt males… a lot, ever since we were all apes. As for their Sapphic sisters they would be none too pleased, who would far prefer Mephistophina presenting up her arse.

As for bisexual Aleister Crowley mages and their Babalon kin, they have no need to rebel against the all male paradigm of the deified ‘Animus;’ it suits them just fine.

Mephistophina would then be Faust’s familiar, who is simply an aspect of his ‘Anima,’ manifesting in various guises, as a (Udagan) Bear, as an Elfin girl, as a Nun, as an invisible poltergeist presence ringing a bell, thrice; but always recognizable as the same familiar, who is his ‘Anima’ fluctuation of a Succubus, a Tibetan Buddhist would otherwise term as being a Dakini, who is a fluctuation of Shakti.

Mephistophina is depicted partly dressed as a noblewoman, all in ‘Rubedo’ red, with an astral flight feather in her hat. The tattoo on her left shoulder is a Native American ‘heart-line’ Bear claw, referring to the power of hypnagogic (Nigredo) trance, which in shamanistic practice is experienced as residing in the (heart) chest area, where most of the nerve fibres of the Central-Nervous-System are to be found. The skull and crossbones on Mephistophina’s stockings, also refers to hypnagogic (Nigredo) trance.

The crossbones is associated with the seventh Rune of Gebo, looking like an ‘X,’ whose symbolism refers to self-sacrifice into hypnagogic (Nigredo) trance as well as the introversion of the sexual impulse. The Gebo Rune has its equivalent Hebrew letter, being Gimel of the Cabbalistic 13th path interpenetrating Da’at, and Tarot card of the High Priestess Of The Silver (Sirius) Star, a Siberian shaman would equate with Udagan. In other words, the sexual impulse is introverted by prior meditating upon (High Priestess) Udagan, in order to overcome the terror of hypnagogic (Nigredo) trance ingress into conscious Coitus Pactum dreaming.

The Gebo Rune equates with the English, G, which is utilised in Freemasonry. The ‘X’ also equates with the Latin numeral for (Occult blind) 10. The experience of hypnagogic (Nigredo) trance is otherwise termed as the ‘little death,’ whereupon you have the motif of the skull. As for the sigils, they have been adapted of symbolic alchemy for Mephistophina. Though hinted at, Mephistophina also has a little cape of remote viewing red silk swept behind her and a long pointed Chöd sword on her right side; for she be Left-Path-Handed.

Scene IV: The Art Studio (Faustus & Mephistophina)

Mephistophina: Ah, now, you please me greatly, indeed.

I hope we’ll get along together:

To drive away the gloomy weather, from around thy heart,

As you to seer, I’m dressed like young nobility,

In a scarlet gold-trimmed coat,

In a little silk-lined cloak,

A cockerel feather in my hat,

With a long, pointed sword,

And I advise you, at that,

To do as I do, in a word:

So that, footloose, fancy free,

You can experience Life, with me.

Slightly adapted from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s, Faust

NOTE: Some would classify my work as being Occult Pornography of adolescent fantasies, merely because I have reversed the symbolism of an all male symbolic paradigm of the deified ‘Animus,’ towards that of the female, of ‘Anima.’ But if so, they would be entirely missing the symbolic point.

The all male gender focus upon the deified ‘Animus’ has an underlying sexuality behind it’s symbolic influence upon all levels of culture; hence, it can also be construed as being Pornographic. When you have a biological gender focus, it will invariably involve sexuality; it is nature, which cannot be denied! However, the underlying sexual orientation is generally not seen, due to the sexual impulse being castigated out of the symbolic equation along with the ‘Anima.’

Most of the religiously hewn patriarchal grimoires are primarily populated by male archetypes of the ‘Animus,’ which frequent the heterosexual female psyche; whereupon said patriarchal grimoires are the PlayGirl stroke Bibles of conjuring Witch Nuns dancing orgiastic around their God and Devil, Angels and Demons, whose mantric spells often utilise the terminology of King, Lord, Master or Prince, etc. Some of the conjuring Witches are no doubt bisexual.

As for those Mages who conjure up the archetypes of the ‘Animus’ out of the patriarchal PlayGirl grimoires they may be sexually predisposed to do so of preference, such as Aleister Crowley for example, who was bisexual of leanings, writing erotic poems about Satan, etc. At least Crowley was honest about his androgynous bisexuality, many of the closeted bigots at the time considered to be… Wicked!

If, however, you be a heterosexual Mage, bisexual or a lesbian Witch, who decides to conjure up the ‘Fallen Anima’ and her archetypal (Succubi) Succubae Legions, you will soon find yourself being castigated as being a vile Pornographer peddling adolescent fantasies by the Politically Correct Thought Police; this is more so the case if you are a heterosexual Mage, to be duly seen as being… Wicked!

A heterosexual male who conjures up male archetypes amidst his Triangle Of Art Imagination is doing so in order understand aspects of his own masculinity. In other words, the conjured male archetypes are not external entities, they are otherwise ‘role-models,’ and in turn alternate guises of himself, which can be assumed within lucid dreams, of similarity to an actor acting as a character on stage.

Each of the alternate-guises are empowered by a feminine counterpart, you can term as a Succubus, who as an external entity, is an aspect of the Fallen ‘Anima.’ Whereupon heterosexual Faustus Crow rebelliously conjures up Mephistophina out of his PlayBoy grimoire.

Whereas the classical Faustian myth points at another sexual orientation, Christopher Marlowe to have had a preference for, which he communicated via his Judaeo-Christian Faust kissing the backside of Mephistopheles. Savvy!
