Christ, The Elements And Inner Transformation.

Welcome readers,

The physical human body can at times continually be a burden that will weigh our spirit down. Therefore it can block the communication we have with our spirit and in turn the higher divine powers, bringing separation. As our spirit is our True Higher Self which is part of the Divine and our body is not, but in fact belongs to the earth in which it will return once more in death.

There is a verse in the Bible were "The Christ" says : "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" Matthew 26 : 41. In this verse he is clearly talking about the inner transformation of a person on the spiritual path to illumination and the struggle it, at times can be.

We must strive to bring our bodies in order, so that they are like a temple for the higher self. In the Bible once again it says : "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit" 1 Corinthians 6 : 19. What is being said is that your bodies are not just vessels for the True Higher Self, but are in fact also temples for it. In the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn it is talked about reaching a point of having "Knowledge and conversation with your Holy Guardian Angel. They are talking about that connection we must have with our higher self. Whether it is called "The Holy Guardian Angel", "The Holy Spirit", "The Higher Self", "The True Self", our "Spirit" or "Soul", it is all one and the same thing. The reason the word "Holy" is used, our Higher Self is a part of and connected to the Divine source.

So you see, when you come to know your Higher True Self, you will also start to connect with the Higher Divine powers as your Higher True Self is part of it.

Picture : The Golden Dawn of a New Day.....a New Beginning !!

You maybe asking what this has to do with the elements.

In Enochian Magick as also in the Western Hermetic Tradition, there is a tablet called the "Tablet Of Union" I am going to save a main talk on this for another article. However, in this article I wish to say that the "Tablet Of Union" is what brings the external elemental forces together and balanced. It is like for example the hub on a wheel and the four external elements are the spokes, which when altogether make up the wheel to set it in motion. This "Tablet Of Union" can also relate to the Rose that is sometimes represented as "The Christ". It can also relate to the Heart, as the heart is the center of all things, it is the heart that controls the mind.

You may often see ancient religious paintings of "The Christ" with a large heart and a "Crown Of Thorns" around it. You may see Esoteric pictures of the "Crucifix" with a heart in the center or a rose in the center.

Let me explain some of the symbolism here, the "Crucifix" as a symbol go`s back a long way before the religion of Christianity. One of the symbolic meanings of the "Crucifix" is it`s relation to the four elements. The Crucifix go`s out in four different directions and these four different directions are what relates to the four cardinal directions of the four elements. The rose, heart or even in fact "The Christ" in the middle of the Crucifix is a representation of the balancing of the four elements. That`s right, the symbolism of "The Christ" himself in pictures represents the perfectly balanced human that has reached illumination and enlightenment. 

Let me explain it some more, on my altar I have four elemental tools, the Wand for Fire, the Dagger for Air, the Pentacle for Earth and the Cup for Water, in the middle of this is the "Tablet Of Union".

All these tools on my altar, in fact my whole altar is symbolic for my inner self.

The balancing of the elements and bringing them in harmony is all about what is going on inside me, its all about self transformation as I travel the magical path.

When we choose to work with the elemental forces, we are asking them to aid in helping with our self transformation. We are setting the forces in motion to work on our inner self, so then our bodies can be in harmony and balance like the symbolic representation of "The Christ". We can not allow our earthly bodies to have control over our minds and therefore not take notice of our spirit within, which is our True Higher Self. We must have control over our physical body with our mind, how we do this is through balancing the elemental forces within. Only then will we be able to hear what our True Higher Self is really telling us which in turn comes from the Divine, as our True Higher Selves are a reflection of the Divine.

Picture : My hand painted Alchemical Symbols of the Elements in the tradition of the Hermetic Order Of The Golden Dawn. Where the colour opposites are brought together, for example Red for Fire up against the Green, Blue for Water up against Orange, Yellow for Air up against Red and Black for Earth up against White as seen in these pictures. These alchemical symbols are also good to meditate with in order to open a doorway into their elemental realm through astral travel, they are a key.

That`s right, our True Higher Self is a reflection of the Divine, "As Above So Below", "God made us in their image" as it said in Genesis, the Bible. They are talking about the True Higher Self here and not the physical body as many think.

When I talk about balancing the elements within, for example : Fire, maybe I need to not act so quickly before deciding to do something. Maybe I have an anger problem I need to deal with. Maybe I need to bring my passions under control. Water, maybe I need to look at controlling my emotions more. Air : maybe I have a very unstable mind or are unable to make my mind up often. A strong and stable mind is a must when it comes to the path of the Magus. Also maybe I might need to control my thoughts. Earth : Maybe I need to not love material things as much, maybe I need to work on giving more to others. Maybe I have a problem with eating to much or over weight.This is what transformation also is all about on the path to illumination and enlightenment.

This is what "The Christ" represents, the balanced and illuminated spiritual being that we all should seek to become in order to connect and communicate with the higher Divine intelligence`s on other dimensions.

If we are not balanced, then this is how our physical bodies become sick or ill. If we are more healthy and balanced, then we will be more open to receive messages from the higher powers that be, rather than remaining blocked to their information they wish to share. Not only this but our aura`s will radiate and glow, then the beings from other dimensions will notice and be drawn to you. We will feel more alive and vibrate on a much more higher level than you ever imagined.

Why Do Spirits Communicate Through Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication (I.T.C)

Welcome readers,

Why do spirits communicate through Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication?

In answer to this question, there are many different reasons why spirits choose to communicate in this way. I will only be giving a few of the examples that I have personally experienced here in this article. I am sure that there would be other researchers or communicators that have had other examples explained to them.

Firstly I should say that it is very rare that I try to communicate with the spirits in their realm. I do however strive to communicate with Angels, Entities and other beings, please see my other article on the difference between Spirits and Entities. Most of the time it is in fact those in the spirit world wishing to communicate with me through the methods of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication. As I have had some abilities that those in the spirit realm, mostly the astral, have used to communicate with me from a child. This is the first way they will often let me know that they wise to make contact. It is then after these first signs of communication I may decide to take it further into the methods of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication.

Some of the early communication signs that I may experience are, a ringing in one ear sometimes swapping to the other ear and lasting for a very short time. Some skeptics may say that this is more like a problem with my ears. My hearing is very clear and good as I have not long had my ears tested. To give you an idea of what I mean by ringing in my ears, I can be watching television with the volume up and still the ringing in my ear will start and go over the top of the television volume. Another way I could explain this type of ringing in my ears is that it is a lot like the sound of electricity or static in my ears. If I decide to tune into it more, well then the louder it sometimes gets.

Another early communication sign is picking up different smells that others around me are unable to smell. There are times when for example, I will pick up the smell of tobacco, flowers like roses, perfume, sulfur, candles and more. Most of the time, just like the ringing in my ears it will come on suddenly with no warning. There are times when this can be very over powering to the point of nearly vomiting and headaches. Not only this but sometimes these strong smells have come with nose bleeds.

When the energy is this strong, as you can imagine it can be very problematic for me. There was a time some years back when I was disturbed at night while sleeping due to spirits breathing on my face or whispering near me in order to get my attention.

Other communication signs are a breeze going past me, warm or cold spots around my house and other sensations experienced. My animals are often another indication of spirit activity or attempted communication within my house. Animals are in fact very sensitive to the presence of spirits, there has been many times my pets have all at once looked towards a room in my house. At one time all my animals looked up at once, went and then ran under the couch and stayed there for a few hours.

So as I say, these are only a small example of early attempts of communication to me by the spirit world, as there is many more.

When doing a spirit communication using the Rapid Moving Water / Light Reflection Method of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication, the spirits that show are around me at the time of the session.

If I was to continue the communication with the spirit or Entity using Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication, then there is many reasons why. If I wished to continue a communication session I myself really do not need to use Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication as a means of doing so.

In this article I am talking from the perspective of the Rapid Moving Water & Light Reflection Method. This method of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication seems to be the most liked method to date with those willing to try it for the first time.

Some of the reasons those in the spirit world will choose this Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication Method is mainly to show their form. The worlds of the spirits find it more easier to show in this way than a full manifestation to physical form. Even with a full manifestation to physical form, most often the spirits or Entities need a substance to use. Also the room has to relate to the spirit or Entities requirements, environment through the use of different coloured lighting or darkness.

 It takes a spirit a lot of energy to do a full physical manifestation, just as it does to move physical objects around. Those in the spirit world have to change their vibration and also they are coming from their own environment, which is very different to our own.

The below picture is three examples of spirit images coming through using Rapid Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection Method of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication :-

The reason that a spirit may wish to show their form through Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication. If for example they are wanting to reach a loved one to tell them all is fine, they would need to be seen as how they where before they crossed over.

Another reason is to bring about awareness to the public about how real the spirit world is. This is in fact one of the main reasons why I decided to use Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication to allow those in spirit to show through. In this day and age, many in the public want to see evidence of the existence of an afterlife and spirit world. A lot of people are not happy with just, what is called a cold reading from a medium, for some people seeing is believing.

Even though I know from my own experience that if someone has a more opened mind and first believes, there is more of a chance the spirit world may show them many things on their path to illumination.

Some people are lucky to be born with certain spiritual gifts like myself, however some people have to start from scratch to develop these gifts. We all have the capabilities to develop mediumship abilities, however for some it is harder than others.

Don`t get me wrong, I am still learning many things on my path from the spirit world and others in this physical world, as we should never stop learning. Those that say they are an expert or know all there is to learn and will not except anything new in the way of ideas. Even those that refuse to share their methods/knowledge with other seekers or demand large amounts of money.  I myself choose not to involve myself with these people or pay much attention to there teachings.

Through the use of the methods of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication. In the future it would be great for those that find Mediumship development a hard task. To be able to see their loved ones and hear them in real time in the afterlife much like a Skype communication session, this could be a very real possibility soon.

Another reason that I have found with my own experiences in Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication. Is that sometimes the spirits will show me landscapes of the afterlife. This helps to give reassurance to those that have lost a loved one or have a fear of death. Also there have been many times I have seen accidents taking place and even crime scenes in the images given from the spirits. It is not uncommon for a spirit to want to show me how they died if they have been murdered. Sometimes they will show me the murder weapon involved in the crime committed.

Below is the image of a knife of some sort being shown to me from those in the worlds of the spirits. The method of Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication used here is the Rabid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection : -

In this picture it shows the spirit image of a lady with clearly a hole in her head. This spirit was communicating to me that they had in fact being murdered by a gunshot to the head. Again, the Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication method was the Rapid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection method :-

Other times I will get a lot of what is called "earthbound" spirits that are lost or troubled. These images are often sad and very clearly look distressing to look at. There have been times I have had these images come through and I have suddenly been over come by extreme emotion that is uncontrolled. This is when I realized what was taking place and that the spirit showing me the image was pushing their feelings onto me as a form of communication. This they wished was for me to understand how they themselves felt, thing is, I could see very clearly how they felt just by looking at their image the spirit had sent me.

The spirit image below is an example of an "earthbound" spirit in distress. The method that is used is the Rapid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection method :-

There is a few other reasons that those in the spirit world wish to use Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication. However I think this article gives you a good idea at lest, some of the reasons. If I think of anything else that I find maybe of importance to this article here I will most surely add it.

The Lotus Wand

Greetings Readers,

Today I am going to be talking about the Lotus Wand in the Tradition of The Golden Dawn. The Lotus Wand is one of the main tools of the Magician in this system of Magick.

All wands used in Magick symbolize the Will of the Magician who is using them and the Lotus Wand is no exception.

Another type of wand that is very similar to the Lotus Wand is the Rainbow Wand, also used in the tradition of The Golden Dawn.

The Lotus Wand has the colour white at one end, which is the top and the colour black at the other end which is the bottom. The colour white is symbolic for pure spirit from the Divine source, Kether going by the Kabbalah. The colour black is symbolic for the earth, Malkhut going by the Kabbalah. These two ends of the wand can also be seen as Light and Darkness and so forth, the two poles or pillars going by the Kabbalah. So as you can see these two ends of the wand have different meanings. As you may know, Kether and Malkhut are not represented on the two outer pillars of the Kabbalah in which the two ends of the wand also represent, but are represented on the middle pillar. The two outer pillars of the Kabbalah also stand for the Left and Right Hand Path or Negative and Positive, as does each end of the Lotus Wand.

In between the black and white coloured ends of the Lotus Wand are twelve different colours. These twelve different colours represent the twelve Signs of the Zodiac and also the Planets, as Planets are always in different houses of the Zodiac.

Depending on what spiritual work, I as a Magician are doing, is to where I hold the Lotus Wand. If say I am working with the Planetary Forces, example a Entity connected to a Planet, as different Entities govern different Planets. I would hold the Lotus Wand at the colour that represents the Zodiac in which the Planet was in at the time of the spiritual work been done.

On top of the Lotus Wand is the Lotus Flower, the flower is white as again it is symbolic for Spirit. In the middle of the White Lotus flower the colour is Amber which is symbolic for the Sun as the Golden Dawn is a Solar tradition of Magick. Also in the middle of the White Lotus flower is four Orange Petals which are symbolic for the Suns rays upon the Earth which gives Light and Life to all. With the Lotus Wand there are Ten Petals that represent the Ten Sephiroth, Spheres on the Tree Of Life, Kabbalah. Then there are Eight Petals on the next layer which represent the natural and spiritual forces of the Elements of Air and Fire. Then there is another Eight Petals on the next layer which represent the natural and spiritual forces of the Elements Earth and Water.

The White Lotus Flower is also a symbol of the Egyptian Goddess Isis. The Lotus Flower opens up at The New Dawn which is symbolic for Renewal and New Beginnings or Magical workings. The Lotus Flower creates Air, giving off Oxygen that all life here on Earth needs to breathe. So also it can be seen that the Lotus Flower has a connection with the Element of Air for this very reason. There are many Egyptian paintings which show Egyptian Goddesses and Isis holding the Sacred Lotus Wand in their hand. Not only in the ancient Egyptian religion does the Lotus Flower have great symbolic meaning, but also in Buddhism and the Hindu religion and more. As an example the Chakra System in our Astral bodies looks like the petals of a Lotus flower. I will leave it for the reader of this article to go into a more deeper study of the spiritual symbolism behind the Lotus flower and it`s individual petals.

The Egyptian Goddess Isis, holding a Lotus Wand :

The Lotus flower in the religion of Buddhism :

The Lotus flower in the Hindu religion : 

As I have said before in other articles of mine, it is so much better to make your own Magical tools. Some of the reasons are, when you are making the tools your energy and concentration is going into it. If you are new to esoteric principles, this can be good practice as concentration and focus is crucial in order to get the results you wish. Not only this but while you are making you spiritual tool you are to some degree charging it and empowering it. Your Magical tool will be all the more special to you and feel like a part of you, which it should if you make it yourself. I recommend also that after you have made what ever Magical tool you are making, that you should sleep with it for a few nights. Then you should rap it in a white cloth where no one can touch it, as that is important. The only person that should touch any of your Magical tools is you. Other people are free to look at them, however they may not touch them. The length  of the Lotus Wand should be around twenty five to forty inches, I prefer to have my Lotus Wand to the shorter length in order to fit it on my Magical Altar.

Below is my hand made and painted Lotus Wand :

Also while you are doing a spiritual working, you should not touch the Lotus flower at all. The Lotus Wand should remain up right at all times, meaning that the Lotus Flower should be at the top when holding it or facing to the East on your Altar. Never under any conditions turn your Lotus Wand upside down.

If you are using your Lotus Wand for Banishing then you may hold the Lotus Wand by the Black colour. If the you are using your Lotus Wand for Invoking/Evoking then you may hold the Lotus Wand by the White colour or even use the White colour for Banishing as well. When dealing with Material things use the Black colour, when dealing with Spiritual things, use the White colour. Hold your Lotus Wand with two fingers underneath and your thumb on top. Your thumb is on the colour you are using and so is your two fingers underneath. This is why when making your Lotus Wand, have the coloured sections wide as to fit your fingers and thumb in it. I also have hand painted silver rings separating each colour.

Before using your Lotus Wand it must be consecrated first to activate it.

Starting at the top of the Lotus Wand :

Spirit ~ White

Aries ~ Red

Taurus ~ Red-orange

Gemini ~ Orange

Cancer ~ Amber

Leo ~ Yellow

Virgo ~ Yellow-green

Libra ~ Emerald

Scorpio ~ Green-blue

Sagittarius ~ Blue

Capricorn ~ Indigo

Aquarius ~ Violet

Pisces ~ Crimson

Earth ~ Black

I.T.C Research Part 1 (The Rapid Moving Water And Light Reflection Method)

Good afternoon readers,

Over the 9 years of research and practice in Instrumental Trans-Dimensional Communication (I.T.C), 5 years with spirit image work and 4 years with Electronic Voice Phenomena (E.V.P). When it comes to the spirit image methods, mainly the Rapid Moving Water And Light Reflection. I have seen a steady increase in members of the public practicing and experimenting with it for themselves. Not only this but also many groups on different social media platforms in relation to this subject have formed. In where people are able to post images of their very own experimentation's. It would be safe for me to say that there has been a small revival of interest in all forms of I.T.C.

The upside to this is that it introduces others that may not have ever heard of I.T.C to these very interesting forms of spirit communication, it brings about more awareness. In regards to those in the worlds beyond our very own, this is one of the very motivations behind these forms of spirit communication. Many people today wish to see good solid evidence of the spirit world and are not happy just to settle with a mediums message on the subject. Along with this, there are many people who are terminally ill or have lost a loved one. Human or pet, they need some reassurance that physical death of the body is not the end but is in fact a transition. One of the things these forms of spirit communication through I.T.C will give someone, is hope and reassurance.

Although from an early age I have had the abilities of a medium, when I first found out about these methods of I.T.C it added a whole new perspective on working with the spirit worlds. Now I was able to show people what is around me on a daily bases and is a big part of my life, through the methods of I.T.C.

The downside to this new found interest from members of the public in these methods of I.T.C. Is that many who are now practicing this and sharing their photo`s on social media platforms are not taking notes as part of the research into I.T.C. I feel that at times it has come to the point where people post images and say "wow look what image I captured" and that is as far as it go`s, till their next photo.

In reality, even though as I say there has been a revival in I.T.C experimentation. There is only a hand full of us around the world doing the actual deep research into all methods of I.T.C and we often keep in close communication with each other when we can do so.

This then leads me to the next part of which I wish to talk about. In regards to my very own research and experimentation in these methods of I.T.C. As I am a practitioner of the esoteric path, I learn`t in my training many years ago that it is very important to keep a journal and a dream dairy of all the works I do. This involves, moon phases, planetary positions, feelings experienced, time, date and more. Although this maybe new to some people that do not practice anything related to esoteric traditions. It is, for the sake of research important to make notes on a few things while doing a session I feel. 

There have been some interesting findings that I have come across in regards to the Rapid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection Method of I.T.C. 

On talking with other researchers into the Rapid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection Method of I.T.C. We have all found that there is times when lots and lots of images will come through in the water. We have also found that their will be times when not one single image will come through in the water, this I call a "Dry Patch". For awhile I could not understand why this happened, however just recently due to taking notes I have connected the "Dry Patches" to some other phenomena. 

I have found that the "Dry Patches" have a lot to do with the phases of the moon. This is hardly surprising to me, given the fact that the moon has an influence on water. One example of this can be found in the tides of the sea or river, another example would be the behavior in human beings. As we humans are mostly water anyway, it is hardly that surprising. 

Another thing I found was that this method of I.T.C was subject to the positions of the planets and time as well. This reminds me of working with different Angelic beings, how different Angelic beings will only show at different times. Also how some Angelic beings are assigned to different days of the week. How the elements and some planetary positions are more favorable than others depending on the spiritual work been done at the time. 

Other things I have also found is that the best times to do a Rapid Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection Method session was just before sunset and just before sunrise. I have also spoken to other I.T.C researchers who do this method as well and they have found the very same thing. It is also interesting to note that Akasha, the all-pervading field in the Ether in which a record of past events is imprinted is strongest just before sunrise. Down further in this article I talk about how it has been proven that water has or holds memory.

I have also come to realize that when I am doing an I.T.C session of this nature, if my cats are around at the time I am very much likely to get images of cats come through in the water. If my dogs are around at the time, then I am very much likely to get dogs coming through in the water. If nether my cats or dogs are around at the time, then I will often get many other animal spirits coming through except dogs and cats. 

I firmly believe that there is a deep connection between the energies of my pets and what is happening in the I.T.C session while they are around. This reminds me of times I have taken photo`s of my pets and noticed different coloured balls of light near or around them. This I believe to be that of spirits around my animals, and more than likely animal spirits also, going by my research mentioned above.

The two animal spirit photo`s above came through using the Rapid Moving Water and Direct Sunlight Reflection Method of I.T.C as did all the photo`s in this article. However, these two images came through as half a face, then using the help of Symmetric software, I was able to reconstruct the other half of their face to the photo`s you see here above. 

Some people have suggested to me that I maybe projecting the images of my mind into the water, which is a paranormal event in itself. This most certainly is very possible due to humans being able to change the structure, vibration and frequencies of water through thought and even sound. 

It has also been noted by a certain scientist of recent years that water has memory and that it is a living Entity in itself.

The thing is, when I am doing an I.T.C session of the method mentioned, I am very much in what I would call a small trance like state. As I watch the movement of the water and the flashing of light upon the water, it has a mild hypnotic effect on me. 

I have also over the years managed to master the ability of being able to clear all thoughts from my mind so that I am thinking of nothing at all. Then hold it like this for sometime without letting any other thought enter my mind. Anyone should be able to learn how to do this with a lot of training, discipline, practice, concentration and meditation. 

I am also very good at projecting images from my mind into things, for example talismans, charms and more. I also can send these images to far away places, even on the other side of the world. An example of this would be for me to construct an image of someone in front of me using my third eye after looking at their photo for a little while. Then send energy into that persons constructed image, visualizing that image going to the physical person and into the person. This is a type of thought form creation and can be very helpful to someone for healing. However it is always important to get the persons permission first before attempting something like this. So I am very familiar in regards to these matters and know without a doubt that this is not what is happening when I do a session using the above mentioned method of I.T.C.

Before I ever start a session I first have to feel the spirits around me, as they will first communicate with me by other different ways. Then if they decide to show their formations by manifesting their images in the water. It is really depending on them and of course that which I have mentioned above in this article. 

If you have any questions in regards to this article above, please feel free to ask me by leaving a comment below, I am more than happy to help you if I can ~ © Orion Silverstar 2016.
