witchcraft

It’s that tide of the year again

Bringer of gifts

Spring

Season of the sacrificial lamb.

According to some occult theories the Vernal Equinox is the tide of death…and things seem to be speeding up quite a bit. Yeah, we went from the fires in Australia to a viral outbreak. Lovely jubbley.

never too small

People are dying!

Sweden, the exponents of all that’s Left Wing and Progressive were the only European country to have ignored the Covid-19 mass hysteria while the British and the Americans were waving their pitchforks demanding their share of forced imprisonment.

Loki are you at it again? 

illusions

This time last year witches were going hysterical over Notre Dame and Brexit. You’ll be sursprised how the more progressive and left wing people are, the more they love authoritarian technocrats and apocalyptic movements – whether it’s witchcraft or XR.

Throughout 2019, you had XR activists blocking traffick and causing drama on the tube, basically being a pain in the arse to ordinary day to day communters going on about their lives. Only to end up with Australia going up in flames as if the son of Muspell had just been unleashed.

We’re all going to die! – people screeched…and they still do, but…

Is it the Earth or is it what holds the balance, that Dread Steed, that is about to be set on fire?

When they lose at their game in spite of exerting social pressure, as with Brexit and in the UK at the latest general elections, they’re left foaming at the mouth.

Tricks get confused with illusion.

Do you get the gist?

To re-word a famous Churchill quote: Illusion is the ability to send someone to hell while getting them to look forward to the trip. In other words, illusion creates images that can be deceptive or misleading to the brain. The information gathered by the five senses is processed by the brain, creating a perception that in reality, does not match the true image.

Under the influence of illusion many individuals come to believe they are speaking for the majority of people. Their self-deception is fed by news they get from generators of mass illusion such as social media, interacting only on platforms that agree with their beliefs and where having a different perception of reality is heresy.

Then they are stunned when in the real world, reality takes a different form and Boris Johnson gets a people’s mandate to go ahead with Brexit.

It is said that when the gods hate you, they will drive you insane.

What if Brisingamen is a chain of majority consesus and it’s used to stir conflict?

Let’s watch this short videoclip and see how to scramble a perfect storm with coronavirus.

Ragnarok has never been so popular. People are getting a masochistic need for escathology. There’s even a Netflix series and witches buzz each other excitedly “have you watched it?”, “what did you think of it?”, as if to catch a glimpse of the future in popular culture.

If I ever wanted to drive people crazy and push them on the verge of social suicide, I would definitely choose mass hysteria as my execution weapon.

I can’t but there are forces out there that can.

I’m sure that news of Covid-19 accidentally leaving the lab was not meant to become public knowledge and amid cries that we must not be racist, the Chinese goverment took advantage of western naivety to shut a few mouths and prevent any more news from coming out. It went from being a Chinese pathogen to global pandemic with Europe and America at its centre. China is now ever so quiet while the West doth protests too much.

Social media addicts are surprisingly easy to manipulate and prone to accept deception as truth. Social media is the drug and Covid-19 its virus.

Yes, the virus exists but the pandemic is not caused by a pathogen but by social media’s virulent illusions. It attacks the rational side of the mind and destroys it.

A pandemic is also a time for opportunism. If you’ve a secure job, who would say no to an extra 6 weeks holiday on full pay?

Not I.

Time to retreat in peace and quiet is the witch’s most precious commodity, especially in a world of constant noise and social indoctrination such as the one we live in today.

Sometimes a witch just needs a break.

Witches need the silence that comes from social distance.

Sometimes a witch has enough of creating artificial silence with meditation and wants actual silence.

So just imagine grabbing those who make all the noise and locking them up in a virtual reality where they can be kept out of the way and busy on social media.

If these people stay in, cooped up in their virtual world, it means you won’t be seeing them in the real world. You can sneak out and find a temporary respite from the ordinary world. It is also an illusion…just a better one.

Now, you see, from my perspective, this is the second year in a row, my magical colleagues and I get this much time at exactly the same time of the year, to gather and work together.

What for most people presents limitation, for us means opportunity and expansion. You could say, we have the devil on our side and he has a wicked sense of humour.

While witches and occultists of all traditions follow their leaders guidance to STAY IN AND SAVE LIVES and end up spending days on end chained up to virtual meetings and rituals, we get in a car and go up to the mountains, spreading all that coronavirus to each other.

What a load of BOLLOX.

I thought all these adepts weren’t afraid of death and engage with death and the underworld as a normal spiritual practice. Now the underworld has come to them. Here is their chance to engage with death for real. Why so scared all of a sudden?

The most laughable of all are followers of the Left Hand Path, you know, the former goths turned black magicians and psychic vampires, or the cranky old bitch that goes dark after getting dumped by her New Age master for a young tottie…those types. For them lockdown means staying the fuck in shut indoors and getting New Age arseholes too afraid to get a cough and die to surveil and ‘educate’ people.

What the fuck is this? Do you call this someone one the way to magical adepthood?

These people live in their heads and experience reality through Zuckerberg’s autistic lenses.

SOLVE ET COAGULA

So if you’re smart, make the most of this interesting times to observe people’s reactions in times of  mass hysteria. Watching their self-preservation instincts will disclose an enormous amount of information people usually manage to hide well under normal condition: do they remain vague and aloof? Do they continually spread updates? Do they go in full panic mode and bellow at people what they should do?

It’s almost like Judgement Day, people separate in those who stay quiet and those who make lot of noise. If you’re someone with a good hand at magic, you know what that means.

The hardest challenge a young magical practitioner will ever face is to discern who in the occult/witchcraft is authentic and who is a manipulative con.

 

Beware of anyone who issues ultimatums and uses further isolation as a threat. Among occultists and witches this ‘do as I say or I’ll cancel you’ is becoming the norm. Take this pissy old wanker for example:

These coercive threats come from individuals who make a living from telling people their problems will be over by casting a spell with a candle. Who the fuck comes up with a Ritual to fight coronavirus? They are no more rational than flat-earthers and yet you’ll find that these individuals are often the louder to berate conspiracies. I carried out a small social experiment of my own and showed a few screenshots like this one below to ordinary (non-witchy) people, starting from the guys at the Syrian restaurant down the road and asked them to tell me what they thought of these ‘magical people’ statements.

Most reacted with “Whoa!” to begin with, adding that they wouldn’t be prepared to be talked down like that by ANYONE.

Younger people tended to believe that her claim to know people who had died of the virus was to attract sympathy and boost social media responses. IMG_E5974[1]

Three people you know/met died of Covid-19…oh my god, Janet you are SO full of shit!

The interesting part is that the inversion is now becoming increasingly obvious. People with no interest in occultism and witchcraft tend to be more assertive and be less prone to fall for manipulative tactics than so call magical practitioners, witches, etc. meanwhile the believers join them in condemning anyone who doesn’t believe their story as a subhuman underclass whilst believing to be the ‘chosen’ elite.

Anyone who writes “Don’t argue with us” deserves to have a photo of her holding a massive green cock published on Loki’s Gazette.

I say, “Suck on it old bag! That’s about the best use your mouth will ever have.”

The responses on Janet Farrar’s wall prove a point on the pathetic state of modern occultism and witchcraft that we have reiterated time and again.

Cornonavirus rules them all through mass hysteria and they willingly surrender their freedom.

Witches of the world…98% of you are not what you say you are.

You are glitter snorting, helpless, infantilised, lifestyle consumers.

neopagans

Rational people put you to shame.

But you…(and you know who you are)… don’t even have the guts to speak out your own truth to those who fall in the grip of mass hysteria.

glitter

 

You follow the trend,

You stay safe.

I thought there was no safety in witchcraft…aww…things have changed it seems.

stupid-people-to-this-side-of-the-internet

It’s safer to believe and stay in the herd.

So take care if you are new to this path. Nowadays when someone tells you they are a witch, you’ve got to take it with a generous pinch of salt. Most of the time, you’re dealing with infantilised consumers.

 

 

 

Trickster’s Day: Piercing the veil of reality

In the light of the recent upsurge in counter-complaints by “spiritual” teachers justifying their predatory and abusive behaviour, we have witnessed, generally speaking, two different reactions to these events.

On one hand, compared to last decade alone, are beginning to stand upfor themselves and spread the word about these pathological individuals who have abused their power – usually exhibiting a history of abuse that has been exposed via the many testimonials of brave individuals who chose to come forward, often at a great price for themselves.

Within this group, there are those who yield to threats: to their business, their family and sometimes, even their own lives. They are not, as one would initially assume and many came to realise, empty threats. Sarah Anne Lawless, for example, spoke up fiercely about the abuse she suffered, her disillusionement with neopagan and modern witchy culture. She exposed deeply uncomfortable corroborated truths about authors, spiritual teachers within “traditions” and dug pretty deep in the dirt. Her were powerful words which resonated with many “common” neopagan and witchy folk but it hit a sensitive nerve at the core of the Ivory Tower. And the Ivory Tower mob thinks along this line: Hang on a minute, we can’t possibly suffer another Loki’s Gazette. These dangerous rogues must be stamped out to send a clear message to anyone contemplating the idea to hang out the dirty wash in public, that we will do whatever it takes to silence them. We must organise, come together against the common enemy for our common good, and if we cannot bribe them or persuade them to let go of their issues and put them behind them, they must be destroyed.

So, next thing, Sarah Anne Lawless comes under attack by an academic who using veiled intimidatory tactics, tries to turn readers against SAL by insinuating some of her ideas veer dangerously towards white supremacism, a strawman we see the “progressive” intelligentsia pull out of their sleeve, whenever their active contribution in the protecting and whitewashing the “spiritual” predators illicit activities going behind oathbound secrecy is at risk of coming out to light. But take the podium from a position of academic authority and brand someone a white supremacist, a fascist, a racist and you’re guaranteed to stir a mob that will silence a whistleblower. Neopagan spiritual celebrities all joined in chorus to taunt her for being such a victim (they only feel strong in numbers…you got to wonder why). She admits to have mental health issues, they chide (like it gives thenm a high and feel so much stronger and with their shit together). They even have the gall to throw back in her face the fact that their intimidatory tactics are affecting her young children and use it against her (victim blaming). The shameless, vile, dog turds these “spiritual” teachers are! Next thing, she gets a letter from the Health Department declaring her products are unsafe and unfit for sale. A couple of her social media outlets are shut down. She receives threat after threat by those who abused her (how fucking familiar) and eventually, under duress, she shuts one of her FB pages down and restarts from scratch. These are merely “warnings” of the things to come if she does not retract what she said, they threatened her. And who the fuck do these wankers think they are? Al Capone? However, bear in mind, when you have “academics” and a whole array of saintly gurus of love and light to support you in telling the authorities the victim had a screw loose and was dabbling in poisonous plants, you’ve got your arse covered. No secular authority wants to deal with another satanic panic, do they? And wouldn’t that also go against the interests of all neopagans and witches who could suddenly feel persecuted by the state? You know, I must confess, I voted Sadiq Khan, not because he was Labour but because he is Muslim. I look forward to the Islamic faith growing from strength to strength and I won’t deny, it would give me immense satisfaction to see Sharia Law becomes statuatory in Britain and with that entire “spiritual” businesses and movements go bankrupt and disappear from the face of the Earth. Paganism is too deep-rooted to be eradicated and will continue to survive but it needs to be purged if it’s not to morph into an alternative Christianity and suffer the same degenaracy.

we deserve to have our shit taken to our doorstep and burned. Sorita had them to quickly remove the comment but not quick enough to prevent us taking a screenshot (and what are you going to do this time in the hope to retrieve it? Hack the hard-drive?). Our (mine in particular) attitude to this threat is, “Sure Darren, (or any of you cunts for all I care) just try it. Try it and pray, (nah, supplicate on your knees till they’re raw and bleeding) you’re hellproof mate. I can just imagine cunts like these getting the wrong door and causing a tragedy to an innocent family over their poxy, shitty, nonsensical, countless times debunked, hocus pocus “beliefs”. To think that his fiancee’ used to work for the NHS as a mental health worker and now promotes herself as a NLP practitioner with “a passion for helping people”. She isn’t exactly doing a good job at home, is she? Look at the nutcase she’s engaged to. Is he one of the many people she aspires to “save”? She even stalked us in a mission to redeem us. Fuck off, Gerealdine Oxenham. Just fuck off. As for her Man of the Earth (whatever the fuck it is supposed to make him) buddy, Marco Visconti, we made an enemy of you? We could have sworn by the sonorous sound of you falling from the clouds in surprise, you had only just found out you had one lurking in your lack of self-awareness. Keep your diaper on, mummy’s boy. Even King Paimon agrees you’re an under-developed infant in an ageing man’s body still playing with his squeaky toys.

How ironic it is the more “spiritual” people claim to be, the more prone to excessively disproportionate retaliation they get over a bit of satyre and go as far as to threaten arson and grievious bodily harm (oh, yes, and also in Marco Visconti’s case, it wouldn’t be the first time he advocates violence in response to difference of opinions…a fucking dirty scum of a reactionary fascist in other words…oh but he’s a freemason and has friends in high places now. Pfft. Tell them they can get in the queue to kiss my arse.)

Then you have Sorita D’Este, pretending to care and fight for cyber-bullying and harassment in one epic diatribe in which she claims to have been a victim but not quite a victim (Lord forbid anyone should think she’s in need of their positive energy) because we simply reposted her forthcoming attendance at Hexfest – an overpriced conference of new age bullshit for the mass market organised by a despicable salesman in drag known for his mysogynist treatment of women. Put in context, back home, Sorita is all about the sisterhood and such self-serving move is hypocrisy and lack of integrity of the highest order. We can’t understand what these accusations of cyber-bullying are all about (and that’s taking it from Sorita’s FB conversation with Marco Visconti and not her blog after that where she cowardly hid the fact that she was addressing us out of fear people would be curious to visit our blog.) If our blog is so full of shit as she implies (even she knows it can only be implied), what is there to fear? All the better that people see for themselves, you would think.

Clearly not as innocent if you need to pick people’s brain for what may be externally perceived as parody? Trying to avoid behaviours that may give you away? Testing the waters for customer’s loyalty? A bit of both? …and notice Marco Visconti’s comment underneath. Yeah, the USA, her next port of call below

13 Sorita2

Of course Sorita, no bullying here. No bullying whatsoever. Just a bit of good humoured harmless banter from your cash buddy. So can you answer this question: When does witchcraft/magic becomes a willy wonka luna park for greedy little pigs?

We are not even judging her (people can judge for themselves, no?), we simply present the facts quoting words coming out straight out of the horse’s mouth. It is understandable Sorita might not like us to pull the wool off people’s eyes, but what the fuck, stating the facts is hardly bullying. Get a grip and take responsibility for what you reveal yourself to be.

So why is speaking out so frowned upon in neopaganism? What sense of entitlement drives prominent pagans to go to extremes in hunting down their critics, condemn them in kafkaesque tribunals and seek to punish or destroy them in a manner inquisitors dealt with alleged heretics? What the fuck is this all about? What sense of “spiritual” elitism makes these big fish in a small pond, dismiss the criticism of “brothers and sisters in the craft” as inferior and unworthy of notice? More importantly, why do the “common” pagans often stick by them and defend them even in the light of evidence beyond doubt?

In the next instalment, we will be talking about the second category of people aforementioned at the beginning of this article and deal with all these questions.

Loki and two sugars please

There is a very fine line between some occult practices used in magical warfare and sabotage methodologies used by intelligence agencies, so I’m going to open this article by quoting King Leonidas of Sparta.

They are close to us, then we are also close to them.

Closeness, that sense an invisible presence lurking in the shadows, breathing down your neck. Many Alexandrian witches find the experience rather unsettling and that’s because of a number of supertitions at the core of their beliefs and their fierce attachment to power and control over external circumstances. When Sharon Day breached into Loki’s Gazette and posted the article I have since re-edited and re-posted she must have thought that her violation of privacy would have acted as a future deterrent to write and speak our  mind. We are seeing a concurrent precedent in the case of Sarah Anne Lawless. Since speaking out against merchants of fakelore, charlatans and abusers on her blog, she has been subjected to all sort of retaliation that have affected her livelihood. If there wasn’t any truth in the facts she exposed then why would anyone feel so threatened to take such trouble to silence her? Clearly, facts not words define a truth. Uncomfortable facts are uncomfortable truths some would rather they would not become public knowledge. Those affected by it, have their mask of insincerity to protect and it is to be expected they will take any measure to prevent it from dropping. Fakelore, be it pagandom, witchcraft or occult related is at the core of the religious industry that has replaced mainstream religion as a political tool. It goes hand in hand with our times, where it is corporations and businesses in charge of government and ‘democracy’. It is naive to think of those making a living out of new alternative religions as to be spiritually motivated and their mission, so to speak, evangelical, in the sense they put their knowledge out there to attract kindred spirits to their message. Spiritual people are historically independent, ‘off the grid’ and very often persecuted for not conforming to the rest of society because they represent a fire that if catches, threatens its very existence.

Given the effort and money it cost Sharon Day to breach into a blog that failed to yield any of the information she sought, I must admit I was sorely disappointed to see such a golden opportunity to prove herself a worthy enemy go to waste. I was expecting Xerses’ army to show up but instead, during the period we were shut out of our own blog, I ended up making some interesting connections with off the grid people and practices which are, in the words of who I spoke with, emphatically nothing to do with ‘new age’. I had the time to corroborate these claims and judge for myself, which put a blanket of calm serenity over this period of siege. More wondruous events and gifts exuded out this chaotic moment, all of which I had been racking my brains to how I was going to go about to obtain. Well I shouldn’t have worried. They literally came out of the blue, at the right moment and in the form of gifts from people and the land. This is how you know your contact is your ally and working with you and for you. Especially in the past year, this has been a set pattern. I/we don’t ask for things or help but we do have a solid companionship going with the contacts. It is based on a genuine mutual appreciation and exchange without request and it’s ongoing communication. The greatest benefit is the removal of all anxiety and drama when shit happens because of external interference, enabling one to remove it like you would with a bag of rubbish. Drop it in the bin, done and dusted, life goes on as before. I guess this is what has always lacked in magical traditions like Alexandrian witchcraft. Their relationship with their contacts is based on want camouflaged by ‘will’, e.g: “I will for so and so to go forth and do this and that for me and I will give this and that in return”. Under the outer layer of want of the will is the layer of desire. Under the layer of desire is greed and below that hunger and below hunger survival and below survival is fear. (Stupid Sorita voice piping up) “Oh, but I don’t see anything wrong or immoral in wanting. What’s the point in doing magic then? ” (Normal voice) “Of course, there’s nothing wrong or immoral in wanting, when you earn it through your own efforts. However, when you have to beg and bribe entities to fetch it on your behalf, it shows that as a sentient being you amount to nothing more than a little whatsit.”  So, especially when you want to cross into dark and outer realms or get cosy to beings with key roles in mythology and no sign of worship or temples because you think it’s cool and you don’t want to look like you’re lesser than someone you’re in rivalry with and is giving you a disinterested the middle finger, just remember…

873.gif

Another luminous idea frequently rolling out Maxinarians: (read with stupid voice on) “Magic comes at a price; you got to give your life force to a god/dess”… who’s got countless times the life force you’ve got because, take heed, if you don’t, they ain’t even going to take a second look at you, you’re that insignificant to them. There are three types of sacrifice and I’m only going to mention the one relevant here (you can read about the others on my personal, fully functioning live website…middle finger to you Sharon) which is what the weak do in order to obtain partial favour from a deity. Do they work? You tell me. I could come along and make a deity an even bigger and better bid than yours, and then how far are you going to go? What are you willing to lose? When magic comes at a price, it can easily turn into an auction won by the highest bidder, not to mention some deities are known to screw their most faithful. If your contacts are into trading, terms and conditions then you will always end up getting the short end of the stick, and that’s because, like loan sharks, they know you will always go back for more, as you don’t have the means to stand on your own two feet but still like to pretend you’re some big flashy queen of the pond. As for deities who screw over other deities because of their hand in fate…well, put it this way, even Baldr got a better deal in spite of appearances.

For some magic is need, for some it’s want and then for some is a whole massive load of fun…like an extreme sport…so you become some stuck up pompous arse or you gravitate towards fun deities, kindred spirits. Spirits that should you die and merge with them, you wouldn’t mind but in a sort of way you even look forward to it. It’s no different from finding your twin-soul. Perhaps it was a ‘mare’ coincidence that during one of my strolls with my friend from beyond, he picked something I needed and had been looking for quite some time. The timely closeness with the early February liminality and to what actually unfolded gives me the goosebumps. Meanderings into the dark valleys and misty plains (of death) with the mother of miracles and many shapes, give dreamwork an altogether different flavour from the insipid Alexandrian broth. These house patrols seem to always lead to cunicles bearing the imprint of the amateurish fool of the day who first butchered the fabric then didn’t possess the artistry to mend its frays. Perhaps under the guiding hand of an even bigger fool demanding recompense for her services; bringing us closer, putting the lanscape and figures on it, in sharper focus for all to see (it will become clearer as you read). It’s what King Leonidas talked about: the open door carelessly left behind by the viscous enemy intent on closing in.

Here is one of my favourite Alexandrian cliches, “We have to celebrate the eight sabbaths because it’s what witches do.” Oh no, you fucking don’t. For the most part, they’re new age/hippie inventions borrowed from someone else’s pre-Christian history and in many cases, an excuse to engage in a little self-flagellation to offer deem sacrifice to the goddess, who turns out to be some astral parasite (well, we are at that time of the year, aren’t we?) Unless your forefathers lived in Imperial Rome, festivities based on their calendars and ritual flagellation would have been unheard of by local tribes (Candlemas/Lupercalia of all festivals are not remotely British), so they’ve nothing to do with British Traditional Anything, until Britain became assimilated as a Roman province. Even then, it’s probably more dignified to say sabbaths are traditional to a modern hippie sub-culture rather than make out that’s what witches of old did. But ok, these days it’s trendy and desirable to be a subjugated victim, so I’m sure whether it is Rome or the EU it wouldn’t make a jot of difference to those who take pleasure in bending over with a rope running from their neck to their hands tied behind their back for a clergy(wo)man with a scourge in their hand. Bleargh! No self-respect. As for honouring our ancestors….

Seems like the only thing running in the blood is desperation to fuck 10 to 15 years old…some reason to be proud to be Alexandrian.

never met this man in my lifeadopted

Anyway, now we have a little further insight in Sharon Day’s intentions to (mis)appropriate herself of Loki’s Gazette. As it stand, I wipe my arse with her Privacy Shield Framework. She’s welcome to keep the crumbs she managed to scavenge from our thrashed material. We don’t stop anyone from cutting and pasting and sharing what we publish, so unless she was thinking of buying lokisgazette.com and upload of all files passing them as hers, it would make no sense to import them using a software programme. Loki has many names, Sharon might not be aware of…and I don’t just mean Loptr.  Yep, so Sharon Day was going through Loki’s Gazette bins. Good, good, very good. Next time, we’ll put the cat litter out so she can take a look in that too. Meanwhile, here’s a prophecy for her (we looked at the stars for the purpose):

 

I apologise if this prophecy makes us sound a bit like Christian Day in one of his moments. I just couldn’t help relating it to something Sharon Day posted before she introduced him to Alexandrian witchcraft. That was one giant leap for Alexandrian craft…

IMG_1013IMG_1012

…and straight into the ditch of chaos. And for those in the know…

We couldn’t have done it without your insanity Micki Reagan!

A big fuss was made about initiating the mentally ill, and even bigger fuss about non-socialising rules outside the coven. I guess witches cannot be trusted to be of sound judgement. Some people ought to be kept as far away as possible, not because they are bad or to discriminate, but because from a magical perspective, they are unlocking devices. So in that respect, Maxine should have enforced that non-socialising rule (she should have locked her in a cupboard and thrown away the key, if you ask me) on her newbie, who hasn’t grown much since, I see, before expecting people she never met to follow that stupid, flakely applied rule. Not that the rule is stupid per se. It’s the reasons given and the way it’s presented and enforced that show she really understands fuck all of what she claims to have co-founded and be the queen of.

Oh dear Sharon!

By now, Sharon should be, at the very least, aware that while Loki perfectly understands how the mind of ordinary folk like her ticks, he’s a being who inhabits many worlds at once. Not your usual trickster. Not your usual demon either. Possibly older than Ginnungagap itself. He seems to tag along wherever fate deploys him. Loki understands better than any other deity, the need of experiencing victory by those whose hubris moves them to usurp positions way above their station. Sometimes he even helps them to fulfill their ambitions but that comes at a price only fate decides. Yes Sharon, you may, like the fictional Viserys Targaryan, have all the credentials and pedigree lineage in the world but there comes the time one is confronted by powers beyond one’s limitations. Like Viserys, Sharon wandered helplessly using wealthy middle class status to buy favours that would promise her the crown she believed to deserve. Powers she thinks her lineage will bestow her with the means to tame them in her service. Powers she thinks she can bargain, strike deals with and have dominion over and powers whose language she does not speak and whose nature she does not grasp.

Now we’ve seen what happens when picking battles with the wrong sort of power, let’s take a walk down memory lane to see how Sharon Day got to where she is now. Facebook ‘Truths aside, here is a carousel of Loki’s most memorable mindfucks…it is illustrative of when it is the deity who ends up writing in their magical diary about the time when it was they who evoked a disingenious human and through their hubris bridged ruin and destruction (there are other anecdotes: King Midas is one and Pentheus another, but there are many more).

One of the weaknesses in Alexandrian magical training is its obsession with hierarchy, cult of personality and conquest of power within a fairly homogenous set of poorly understood practices. Deep down, Sharon Day believes that being Maxine’s poodle endows her with power of authority. In turn, the inability of Alexandrians to tell her to fuck off and go back to sipping prosecco at the country club, reinforces this belief of hers with the expectation the rest of the world (external reality) will follow suit. It then comes as a shocking surprise when a young pedicurist, a shop assistant in an exclusive French boutique and even a volunteer at Kingston’s furniture for the homeless don’t see such nobility in the flat arsed hunchback and do not treat her with the deference she demands. Like Viserys Targaryen, Sharon Day misunderstood Loki’s sentiment behind his agreement to fulfill her crowning of glory.

Mischief, mischief, on whose foot is the mischief?…There’s more than one way to skin a cat (Maxine, you should reeeeeeally take heed)…and back to ‘a price’ for the magic, it’s been truly enlightening to see what are women’s perceptions of Loki, particularly witches’, and the power of ‘new’ sci-fi mythologies to shape and influence these perceptions.

Loki in

So much that, to begin with….

Capture1

La-di-fucking-da…She should have taken that as a warning if she had any sense…especially after the Meg Tanaka/pedicurist episode

Five days later, a thought came just like that out of the blue: go log in Loki’s Gazette. I couldn’t be arsed but I did it because when thoughts pop up like that there’s always a reason. First time since October, I think.  Oh wow, it ended with more than just a bent journal for Sharon…

…and I let you imagine as a result what low opinion we have of you.

…and it was all her own doing. Yeah, so what’s this story about the Calypso Software? Well, as it goes, once I got back in Loki’s Gazette, I did what anyone else would have done and reconfigure the whole thing and investigate what went on, to find out who was behind it. Turns out it was Sharon Day. I found date, time, her name and her credit card she used to purchase the software, the transaction and invoice number with date, time and location in Nashville, Tennesee, the software activation time, location and port(s) with other several email from technical support attached, the IPad, two IPhones and consequently her Apple ID (traced and confirmed) the programme was also enabled for, with which she illegally trespassed and stole data and files, and her conversations with WordPress support in an attempt to obtain administrator rights, so no point in Sharon donating her brain to science, I guess.

We were both logged in at the same time and I could see her smug satisfaction dissolving in desperate panic. The interface was going mad and I could see she was importing files, which helped getting a better picture of her exact location, whilst stirring a proper pandemonium in her precious software. She tried breaching back in several times after that over the next few weeks, and yep, I’ve saved them all up.

motherfucker

Just think of all the ammo you’re giving me.

Fucking moron. If I were her I would stop obsessing over Loki’s Gazette for real and not just pretend to people she does. She has already removed all doubt of her stupidity, from here on she can only make it worse for herself. What I’ve done with the fruits of her stupidity is for me to know, but at this rate, the rage she felt at the airport will be nothing in comparison to the tears of bile she will weep if she carries on.

“Real rage permeating the air”….see this shit? gratitude

It validates Sharon Day can’t do neither rage nor compassion. It’s all fake as plastic. She’s in Nashville, supposedly ‘looking after’ her hospitalised daughter. Why isn’t she focusing her gratitude and compassion entirely where she should instead? Meditation, yeah? Clearly, she can’t be doing it right. Why not just sticking to sipping prosecco at the country club and scrap-booking instead of trying teaching others a craft you have neither the flair, or the power or the expertise for?

Breaking news: last minute report in mid-edit. Another fucking drama as we write.

(Now please don’t let me post the entire thing) You wonder why shit happens more than once. Number one, you repeat the same mistakes over and over again. Never learning from them and bang on about this fucking kindness as an excuse, only to get all sullen and passive aggressive, scratch sand over it to cover the smell of your mess. Number two, you ask money for services your heart is not in it. You huff and puff. Ask for more money and when you don’t get them, you get pissed off and rant about it on social media, just like this.

shit

Go re-read what I wrote earlier about mental illness…

shit1

If she really was that bad, what the fuck was she doing in your entourage in the first place? So, let me get this right. First you let the nutters in and then you insist on boundaries? Forgive me, I thought it worked the other way round. This is why, I can’t stand Alexandrians. They are fickle, emotionally retarded and constantly steeped into unnecessary drama. You are a bloody embarassment. No common sense at all. It’s just about parading the curious as if they were committed worshippers of the queen while doing a bit of proselytising, the soiree, the whole fucking claptrap about expensive wine and Strega – 3 euros a bottle in an Italian supermarket and one of the shittiest cheapshit liqueurs you’ll ever find on the planet but it’s all about the name, isn’t it? Hello? It’s only expensive because it’s London and there are finer drinks out there. And then, why even bargain and make concessions for this person to get in for free. There is your chance to get rid of the nutter, matter of fact, without really telling her the real reason! Problem solved. Noooo…first the concession, then you feel ashamed for her, next the character assassination in a closed group. That’s easy, isn’t it. Will these people get to hear her side of the story?

I don’t believe it!!!! How many years have you been in the craft Maxine? Probably better you don’t say.

You know Maxine, there are only two people who are anal-retentive in selecting who gets initiated: one is writing to you right here, right now and then there is someone else. We started at the same time. She with her project and I with mine. Different selection methods, same rigueur. We go parallel to one other and diverge at some point but I respect that magician like no other, on the grounds that she never minces her words and takes no shit. In magic, especially if you lead my dear there’s a very, very thin margin of error. Magic doesn’t do sorry and neither do the beings that come with it. No maybes, no buts, no ifs, not even the chance to take a breath between words before they’re gone. You put a foot wrong and you’re out. You put your foot wrong many years ago and it’s gone all shit for you ever since, so now all you get is parasites who will eat you alive.

Did I understand right? Two years????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I can’t get my head round it. I think none of us here can.

Wait, I need a strong cup of tea now for the next load of tosh. It carries on…

Bloody hell!!! Maxine, you’ve been saying the same fucking shit for nearly half a century but you’ve fucking waited two years to come up with whinge even though you ‘can tell who doesn’t smell right‘. Can you really? Maxine, the only thing you have nose for is cash. You can smell the cash cows. You can smell them good.

(Sigh!) Let’s make light of it while I put the kettle on a second time for another cuppa.

Exactly, as it has just been demonstrated with Sharon Day.

Admit it. You needed a good bitch. Don’t we all sometimes? But will you just stop acting like you’re the victim. It’s tiresome to having to listen to same old broken record. True potential magicians don’t gravitate towards victims, don’t you fucking get it? This is my second edit to this article and I’ve just inserted these bits right in the middle of it when your post is barely 7 hours old. Could it be, perhaps, Loki is not the only one who has it in with you lot (two)? Even I don’t have the fucking answer at this point!!! Could it be…he’s up to something even I don’t know? Things are getting rather peculiar and you said it yourself, this ain’t Disney world, and at this point I’m starting to think you’ve really pissed off something greater than just people. I’m going to put on the table some disinterested advice for you before closing this parenthesis (it’s up to you, take it or leave it): learn from ‘the attacks’ coming to you. Listen to what they are trying to tell you. Take them standing. Stop making excuses for yourself. If you forgive, you must know how to forget because the first cannot happen without the latter. So, stop lying to yourself, it can hardly be called a strength. Choose magicians (then you have to change attitude and treat them as such) over cash cows and brown-nosers. It’s your Achille’s heel and it won’t take a rocket scientist to tell you how it’s going to be your undoing.                                  Was that kind enough?

proud

Back to the edit and it already feels like we had this conversation before

Sparking originality was never Sharon’s forte and three pedigree initations into witchcraft have made not a jot of difference to her non-existent magical powers. At the end of the day, she still needs to employ ordinary services for ordinary people and cross her fingers for a placebo effect. This, among many other aspects point rather conclusively witchcraft does not run in her blood but it doesn’t mean she is not tied through bonds and oaths to practices that enable spirits and skin-walkers to enter her mind. I go into more depth about the technical applications and mythological examples of this practice on another blog, but one key connotation is that in ‘witches’ not of the blood, intiation rites bring up to the surface areas of arrested development the conscious personality had suppressed in the subconscious whilst growing up. Very often, people on the outside, family and friends, will notice a dramatic regression, no dissimilar to a midlife crisis where a 50+ suddenly begins to imitate their juniors, and in some cases to behave like teenagers. They also become rather susceptible to the effects of glamour, as we have seen. Unfortunately, they often forget that time (not magic) does not lie and cannot be cheated. The painful realisation dawns with unexpected encounters with sassy and spirited pedicurists in the spring of their youth, bursting with energy, no longer prepared to take any shit from anyone, no matter how rich or witchy. A well groomed shop assistant in an exclusive French boutique may not suffer gladly the delusions of a frumpy woman, no matter the size of her wallet would match with her actual tent dress size. And why should she? Some sizes, like witchblood, are just not available to everyone. To thine self be true. No need to get angry. No need to jump on the defensive. Take the shop assistant’s blessing and move along, chop, chop!

 

truly blessed

Hear, hear the mouth of wisdom!

It’s not that Sharon Day is fat; she’s just misshapen, has saggy skin hanging off her stomach, no waist, a flat arse, no neck, no muscle tone and needs to airbrush her portraits to fish some compliments. I don’t need to describe her to those who know her. It’s called ageing, my dear. By the way, serious congratulations to the photographer for a masterpieces because your portraits looks nothing like any of you in real life…

…and whilst on the topic of ‘truth’ and ‘be true to thine own self’….

another of your blessings

“When it’s rejected, Initiation into the priesthood or Alexandrian craft is neither available, nor suffered by us. We do bless them on their way. ” Ok, so that explains why the nominated heir to the King of the Witches became a heroine addict, suffered a stroke in his early 30s and is now a vegetable who can’t speak and needs 24 hrs care. Some blessing on your own son, Maxine, but…..

4uto4JE

It looks like Maxine could learn one thing or two from Tywin Lannister about power, witchblood and being true to thine self. Let’s get the point across in pictures.

brat

“I am the king!” – protests the insufferable, vicious, little brat.

How familiar….

mx1mx

And how the protests fall on Alexandrian ears…

same argument

“Please shut the fuck up!”

Now, if I were you Maxine, I’d get Sharon Day to take note of Tyrion’s wise words and display them in bold neon characters somewhere you can see them most of the time.

tyrion

“Any man who must say I am the king is no true king.”

Get it? Any wo/man who must say, I am the king, I am the queen, I am co-founder, I am a true initiate, I am a High Priest/ess, I’m an Enchantress, is none of these things. Power does not come from telling people that you have it but comes from showing them. Usually it reaches your ears, when you least expect it, in whispers. Your son, seem to be hanging by a thread of life on purpose, as if not to release you from responsibility, to never let you forget and as an indictment upon yourself of your own judgemental pronouncements on others. In your blind hypocrisy, you condemn your own son along with those you resent and feel enviously powerless against. Yes Maxine, powerless. And whenever you feel powerless, we can all take a big breath, plug our ears because you will start crying out bullying and have a temper tantrum like that other toddler, Sorita; then as soon as something lifts your spirits (usually some misfortune happening on another) you’re back to your cocky self, until someone does or says something to dent your ego and the cycle starts all over again. Lo, and fucking behold the earlier interjection!

Right, I’m cutting off the rest because it needs a separate article and I might take it elsewhere, to a worthier audience 😉 . I’m leaving you with a song to make you forget all the eye candy and your woes…but not the dinosaurs!

Keep smiling.

Sleep well.

No wet dreams guys ‘n girls.

 

The power of words upon shaping reality: cautionary tales on giving express permission

What would you do if in the quest of becoming a prominent public figure for neo-pagans and wiccans, you ended up caught between detractors and gossip?

There are many ways to handle these obstacles and for those who truly believe themselves adept at the magical arts, magical defence should put a quick end to all problems. However, for many who make such bombastic claims of magical power and secret knowledge, it turns out to be all noise and no substance.

They must then deal with the additional embarrassment of explaining WHY they seem to be powerless to make their detractors and gossip cease and desist. Every now and then, Sharon Day likes to remind us all, what a poor persecuted victim of vicious gossip she is. I thought all that had been dealt with and buried at the Grand Sabbat, or was it?

gossipbut you still post about it like you did

So let me get this one straight: here is someone who claims of having no longer time for gossip but seems to have plenty of time for yapping and posting memos to her persecutors on social media.

I guess Sharon Day is still a long way away from mastering silence, nevermind indifference. Her detractors will be pleased to hear they’re still keeping her secretly scouring the internet and running up her phone bill for gossip, aside posting her predicaments online.

It’s really no use to pretend to be strong in a zone of virtual strangers when you lack self-control in the secrecy of your four walls. It has become common knowledge, thanks to some eloquent individuals in her life, she can recite Loki’s Gazette blog posts almost at verbatim but still needs to read from her BOS in her witchcraft rituals.

But let us not blame people for their disloyalty. After all, it’s not their fault if Sharon Day fails to inspire respect in her friends…and her enemies.

Expressions such as “You can even add some if you want” mark her out for the abject fool she is, and it wouldn’t even be the first time.

No, you couldn’t make it up. She actually said “no publicity is bad publicity…shaft it all the way to Ragnarok.

shaft it

O.K….Have it your way Sharon.

Never before, even in its fluffiest ranks, has the craft seen someone lacking the most basic understanding of conflict handling and resolution. Sharon Day wonders why people won’t let bygones be bygones.  For someone who makes such a big deal about words, she gives express permission to add on and then wonders what the fuck is hitting her when she’s taken on her word.

Sharon Day being an arse

Here comes the Looney Tune! Hidden in plain sight: a classic example of how Sharon Day lets her closest ‘friends’ ride her like a bicycle.

Perhaps Sharon Day is afraid of not being able to hold her ground if she were to confront her enemies with the animosity she carries inside. Or perhaps, she’s hyper-conscious of how her wits let her down whenever the occasion presents itself.  In her fantasy world enemies offer themselves to her like her Waitrose ready-made meals. In the real world, all she gets are fleeting opportunities. Carpe diem because once they’re gone, they’re gone. Let’s just say, animosity without cunning and sharp reflexes results only in uncontrolled anger – neither priestly nor magical. It’s not just a detestable flaw in someone proposing herself as a power icon but a downright dishonourable weakness.

So what else does Sharon Day do when she’s not busy telling other Alexandrians how to run their covens or making rounds of calls to check what people talk about behind her back?

The likes of Sharon Day use spiritual practices and beliefs to avoid dealing with painful feelings, unresolved wounds, developmental needs and other major slaps in the face from life. This coping mechanism is commonly known as spiritual bypassing.

The more money you have in the bank, the harder it is to divorce the bored housewife who took early retirement from and has been off work for the past 20 years. Before we label her fortunate, we’d be better off reminding ourselves that a gilded cage is always a cage and that idle minds will gravitate towards purposeless pursuits. Who says all curses must end in death?

Sharon Day has a young daughter being slowly consumed by an illness like a candle on both ends. Sharon’s belief that a curse had been placed on her daughter was what brought her to witchcraft in the first place as she desperately sought someone who could break and remove this curse.

There’s nothing worse than trying to live of reflected glory through your offspring because you never really learnt how to live and shine of your own accord. This is how Sharon Day filled her younger days as a typical well-off, middle class mother. But while most middle class mothers would content themselves of ferrying their kids activity after activity, Sharon Day had always objectified other women as pawns to compete against because that’s what she was brought up to believe in beauty pageant country. This conditioning caused her self-esteem to plummet at various points in her life. She had proved useless at competing first hand and failed her parents’ expectations, so she took her burden off her shoulders and placed it on her own brood. Call it a generational curse just waiting for its season to ripen.  It was at one of these competitions that Sharon Day met her nemesis in a woman of colour who had made great personal sacrifices to help her daughter’s talent to flourish. Having discovered Sharon Day was trying use her influential status to bribe and corrupt the panel of judges in her daughter’s favour, and being nowhere near as half as wealthy or influential as her, this woman resorted to the good old fashioned method of witchcraft. But, we’re not talking wiccan magic here. This woman was no new age sucker and resorted to methods anchored deeply in her ancestral heritage. There were no polished brass candlesticks on her altar.  No athames. No swords or cups. No need to fight back Mzungu’s abuses of power with their own weapons when she possessed fangs and talons as hers.  The mama putting on such juju was one hell of a triggered lioness fending off a hungry hyena away from her cub.  The juju reached deep into ancestral memory and back in time with songs and melodies belonging only to those carrying that memory imprint in their blood and the desire to avenge the wrongs of the past and present, to never be a second class American again. Modern fluffy witches still believe the dead operate on the reality of the living. They don’t because they can’t. They are no longer part of our world. What they can do, however, is to create turbulence and an attuned practitioner can re-awaken old grudges from their former lives to set them against other ancestral lines like Furies. The more oppressed the ancestral group, the more responsive and sympathetic to a kindred’s plea they’ll be. They will attack the oppressor’s ancestral lineage, who on the other side will find no Christ to to hide behind. Whichever form the attack will take, it will travel across time and space in the form of mysterious sickness and physical debilitation that will affect their living descendants. Long ago, someone poked fun at Loki’s Gazette for suggesting that the ‘sins of the fathers will be visited upon their children’. As a matter of fact, yes, it’s a realistic possibility, particularly true for anyone out of synch with their ancestors. So, when Sharon Day talks of having been harpooned, she’s not entirely wrong, except she’s not really noticing where it came from and where it plunged.

We know many a witch who would be quick at waxing lyrical about their cursing prowess and equally quick to deny such things are possible when someone other than themselves is being magically attacked for whatever stupid reason. Of course, as Sharon found out, witches brag a lot about cursing, hexing and healing but when it comes to the crunch they suddenly turn to scepticism and will do their best to rationalise it away, because there is nothing more embarassing than putting oneself out as a not-to-be-messed-with sorcerer, and then, when the moment of truth finally catches up with them, have nothing to deliver but contrived platitudes about past lives karma or suggestions to book an appointment with a psychiatrist.

You would think, whatever your belief, or lack of it, in curses, Sharon would have a clear idea of where her number one priority lay…waiting to be attended, but it seems, even dogs can do a better job.

mother

But fuck it…let’s tend to the spineless piece of dead wood too afraid to be seen hanging around the Alexandrian Witchcraft Ltd stall by his coven associates and call it service. Let’s book a last minute ticket to Glastonbury and go stir some shit on someone else’s doorstep and call it extending an olive branch.

Sharon Day likes to brag on her blog about these sensational victories in life but she never explains how any of that bullshit takes priority over the girl on the hospital bed.

She can save her breath because facts are self-explanatory and louder than any protest. No skin off our noses, however…

g ramsey disgrace

In a short span of time, Sharon has been firmly planted in the exoteric courtyard of magic, no matter how masterfully credible the enchantment of being part of some inner circle has been spun around her. There are some among us who pity her for she has open enemies all around the magical community who would fell her like a sacrilegious totem at the first opportunity. Worse still, her very gullible and easily manipulated nature, not to mention her material wealth, have attracted an equal number of greedy hoodwinkers and gold-diggers who stand to benefit from a tool like her being such a beacon for desperate inepts and these people are very good at hiding their contempt with a friendly smile and a pat on her back. Essentially, if you have not yet understood, Maxine’s plan is to elevate herself to divinity status, with Sharon Day towing behind her as chief High Priestess, sponsoring her every project.

Often, the hatred against Sharon Day has nothing to do with her background or who she gets the ‘privilege’ to mingle with. Seasoned witches are well aware of the promotional empress parading at consumer-orientated pagan gatherings in her new clothes but it’s the non-negotiable and persistent demand that everyone should echo the ignorant massess oohing and aaahing in awe at her illusionary splendour, the expectation to join in and imitate her in her mindless adoration of her mistress, sell themselves to and exalt her keepers, capitulate unreservedly to them… that’s what rubs feisty spirits the wrong way.

Aside those who stand to gain from consumer-orientated pagan events, who the fuck would want to pay entrance fees and have pushed in their face an overpriced, hard to sell, limited edition copy of photocopies of notes meant for the fire that Alex Sanders had himself copied from sources freely available in libraries.

Armchair magicians with more money than sense…or power, that’s who.

Enemies are part of life and true friends may be a rare luxury for some but it wasn’t until Sharon Day came on the scene that it became clear just how the two can be easily confused. Like a massive brasso-polished waste container, she was strategically (as well as tragically) placed to collect all the crap discarded by the many on their way out the craft’s own trailer park compound. It didn’t take long for it to start smelling badly and having all the sleazy vermin of the occult feasting on it. Now, no matter what you wash it with, it stinks just the same and it’s only a matter of time before she’ll be cast out in the desert like Scott Blunt, Karagan and many others before her.

Ironically, some flouncers envy Sharon’s exterior facade of glamour. Sorita D’Este is still coming to terms for not having been the first Maxine turned tofor support and is doing all in her might to win the pissing contest she got in with Sharon Day, or gods know, blasting rod failing in its purpose, maybe she wants to give an illusion of unity, as if we’d quickly forget what pagan mini-celebrities are like once they have no longer any use for one another. Not that she ever thinks it could have been her son to be left bereft of a mother with only a dog for company, if not worse.

From the inner perspective, however, even just contemplating envy is utterly insane, as it goes something along the lines of these two GOT characters, which see Sharon Day play the role of Theon Greyjoy – the proverbial highborn traitor (she did betray her initiator Scott Blunt out of ambition) who having seizes the opportunity to raise in rank, end ups being disrespected and mocked by her own for her goofy naivete and lack of charisma, (this reminds me when she called witches to unite against the common enemy), tortured (had her hopes raised and crushed by a series of failed healing rituals for her daughter) and bound into servitude by Maxine, who turned her into a broken, desperate for redemption pet, like Reek.

do you love me reek

So what does Sharon do when the healing fails? She packs her sick daughter off with relatives on the other side of the Atlantic and gives herself something to intoxicate the mind and whip her into a frenzy, like poking her nose into the affair of strangers who probably never even heard her name, then goes on social media proclaiming herself a victim of malicious detractors.

This is how oblivious to gossip she actually is and how little time she has for it. So little in fact, that she actually starts the ball rolling by picking on a tradition that has nothing to do with Alexandrians and are minding their own business…

Interfering and meedling in private affairs of groups that are not Alexandrians, like she has nothing more important to do in life.

The following screenshots are evidence that far from being the victim of malicious gossip, Sharon Day actively attempts to divide and rule the pagan community and actively encourages disloyalty and discord by recruiting from within her network those stupid enough who will open the way for her to target groups minding their own business and showing no desire to become embroiled in her madness.

Why would someone who claims having no time to explain herself, demand exactly that of others she has never even met?

curveballcurveball1

Knocking on too many doors, risking of ruffling a lot of feathers, from Brazil, to Australia and all the way to Canada…who the fuck does she think she is!

curveball4curveball3

Pray tell us why, because we’re fucking confused too. I never understood where Alexandrians get their entitlement of ascertaining what’s into Gardnerian’s underpants.

curveball2

Silly me, “the answer is simple”, according to Sharon Day. So if it’s not about a vouch, why does she make it her business to poke her nose into the affairs of a tradition Maxine holds in so much contempt?

pissing contests

It’s inconsistency after inconsistency. “We dared to break their rules”…so why the fuck do you now expect everybody else to respect your fucking rules? “This set us apart from Gardnerians”…yet you’re always sniffing up their arses like dogs on heat. “Much to the despair of other traditions…Much to the annoyance of the Gardnerians”…oh, so you like giving others a hard time, then cry victim when the tables turn. Fuck off. Just fuck off.

jealousy

 

Pffft….I wouldn’t be so sure. Jealous of what? What is there about your miserable lives to be jealous about?

 

Bribery, rebels without a cause, plagiarism: some of the reasons why Loki’s Gazette despises neo-pagan, magical communities and their luminaries.

Oh yeah, Loki’s Gazette had it too (having been ranked at the same controversial level of Christian Day), the offer of the olive branch, to see if a bit of bribery and promises of glory would convince this rogue priesthood to repent like the prodigal son and get into the herd of good goddess-fearing-Christo-wiccan bum kissers.

Not a single member of our group grew into a magical practitioner because of a book, a person or course, even though we’ve all had some exposure to that at some point in our lives. In the end, we each understood and followed the way placed in front of us. We forge our training through our own practice.

Magic cannot be taught.

You’re either wired for it, in which case it will grow on you like an exoskeleton, or you’re not…in which case you’ll be studying and trying and reaching out to this teacher and that until you convince yourself to be deserving of a crowd of obsequious disciples and a title to match because you’ve been ‘working magic’ for 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 years.

Pathetic.

Fuck that shit.

curveball5

After the olive branch negotiations went tits up, came the threats from the ‘Most Noble Order of the Masters of the Temple, – a bunch of hopeless wankers – who also unsuccessfully fumbled clumsily with the possibility to infiltrate and antagonise both us and a number of magical groups suspected of having some sort of ideological affiliation to us…which is what happens when you don’t credit the sources you take inspiration from.

It’s unclear what this investigative commission led by NLP/Hypnotists Geraldine Oxenham (semi-Alexandrian and treasurer of OTO Ameth Lodge) were hoping to find but last we heard they were told in no uncertain terms where to go and promptly booted out by each and everyone they bothered, before getting a lengthy and rather amusing diatribe about their profound ignorance on some magical matters by a particularly cantankerous occultist.

What can I say? It must be the fucking magic!

Then again, the choice of words Geraldine Oxenham uses to introduce her NLP and Hypnotherapy practice cast serious doubts on her fitness to exercise that profession, especially considering that in occultism, obsession is a sign of psychological and spiritual unbalance.

obsessed

Lo(l) and behold, turns out she was going back and forth between Sorita D’Este and Sharon Day, in the days leading up to the Glastonbury drama.

What a healthy bunch!

These days, the idea that a magical group may be content to operate self-sufficiently and completely outside ‘THE’ pagan community, lack any desire to be a promiscuous spiritual slut, even relishing in remaining unknown, seems like an unfathomable utopia.

Everyone wants to be known and hailed by the masses like one of the Grand Poobah of Witchcraft with Treadwell’s and Atlantis bookshop fighting over who’s going to provide all the trimmings, right?

Wrong.

Upon spotting Grand Master of the Ameth Lodge, Freemason and Citizen of Hookland, Marco Visconti on the far right of the picture we had no choice, as you can see, but to take this mighty magical order’s intimations very, very, very seriously.

This much seriously to be precise.

The Most Noble Order of the Masters of the Temple in their shining outer robes of glory.

All in all, the Noble Order of the Masters of the Temple soon found out the hard way power was not their natural state.

(Sigh!…………………..)

Reality check as a prelude to the next bit

Even though they don’t like to admit it, Alexandrians are one big dysfunctional, fragmented family of bastardised lineages whose matriarch blows hot and cold and whose training is at best disjointed and incoherent at the core of the tradition itself. Many downlines were’t even given that and Maxine couldn’t have cared less, letting initiates grab each other at throats over the validity of their practice like it was some sort of an amusement sport. They lack a unified canon to make them stand out from Gardnerians and the once much maligned about eclectics. Instead they settled for becoming a poor imitation, with a couple of pages from this book, a passage from that book, three lines of this liturgy, a DIY Abramelin in three days, and so on and so forth. Maxine calls this paper poultice, Alexandrian refinement. When their BOS contains glaring mistakes, they are called ‘blinds’.

Peruse a few out of print publications from long forgotten magicians and realise they’re not blinds at all, but just the hand of a fucking cunt who couldn’t even copy from a book. Want some proof? Let’s take a couple of leaves from the Temple of the Mother 3rd BOS and compare it to its original source from a founding father of modern magic whose name seems to have been deliberately obliterated by all those who used his books to start up or bump up their own independent traditions.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Alexandrian tradition was conceived and sank its roots amidst strife and intrigue, mistrust and deceit, lies and jealousy, broken oaths and weak bonds. When the roots of the tree are sick, the tree is doomed no matter what. Alex Sanders openly admitted to surrounding himself with people he could take advantage of and was quite opportunistic in this sense, which it’s why for most of his life he got by, telling tall tales and offered initiation to whoever would listen to him. Then one day he had enough of it. He threw his notebook in the fire. He repudiated the tradition he created with the intent to start afresh. Alexandrian tradition officially ended when he died and what later happened to the son he had nominated as his successor (irreversible brain damage), gave it the final rubber stamp.

Balding sack of bones stares at plump pair of titties. Proud owner of such bounty smiles like a Cheshire cat knowing she’s already got one up grandma’s sexy net curtains on the pole standing to her left. Stiff curtain pole projects her inner fury to hubby’s lewd mind.

As the poor attendance at their last two Grand Sabbats proves, each Alexandrians wants to be king and queen of their own castle. We don’t see them jumping to their feet to attend and pay homage to the co-founder. Their loyalty to her extends as far as their self-interest goes – as recent events prompted Karagan had to openly admit on his Facebook page.

Let’s all get rich while we can.

karagan

…wrote Karagan Griffith after being pushed in the ditch by the woman he helped get into Maxine Sanders’ good graces. He was all smiles when posing in this photo for her in the days immediately after the Grand Sabbat 2014. Oh, didn’t he just love to piss other Alexandrians off with his new found allegiances!

 

Christian Day had always had little respect for Alexandrians. Not only he berated Frater Barabbas but who can forget the time he began to insult Sorita D’Este live on one of his podcasts? So this allegiance was something along the logic of shitting on your doorstep before inviting all the neighbours to come and watch you rubbing it all over your face. As anyone could have easily predicted (had they been told in advance), none were too impressed and a scuffle ensued at Treadwell during Jihmal’s book launch.

85% buyers of his bullshit are non-practitioners.

What of the remaining 15%? Presumably all Alexandrians.

shitting myself

A long-disillusioned turned cynic Christian Day changed his tune about Alexandrians only when an equally disillusioned Sharon began to speak to him in the only language he understands: the language of money. If it bring customers to his events and business, he will  be your best buddy in public for as long as his cash till clings with dollars.

And judging by the way Sorita D’Este raced against Sharon Day and time to secure a speking role at Hexfest 2019, he would have every legitimate right to feel superior to this bunch of squabbling twats, since they seem to need him more than he needs them.

yep

Exactly. Alexandrian wicca made witchcraft a cool subculture; it’s essentially materialistic, fits in perfectly with the modern consumeristic mindset and it’s run by business orienteted people pretending to be mystical and magical. Perfect for the American and Brazilian market. Moderately successful in desperate South Africa. Insipidly savoured, but only when convenient, by Australians.

Much to your amazement, you may find that in this new subculture the same rules don’t apply to everyone, and non-initiates may outrank craft elders and monitor yours and theirs future online activity, even mis-appropriating of whatever intellectual property you might at some point regret to have shared with them online. FIY these non-initiates are: Rhys Bonzy Lavender – webmaster for Alexandrianwitchcraft.orgrhys bonzy lavender and Maia Honan, Maxine Sanders’ daughter, marketing and co-director at AlexandrianUK Ltd. (It is not clear why she hasn’t added Alexandrianwitchcraftuk Ltd to her LinkedIn resume…something to be ashamed of perhaps?)

Moral of the story, never, ever, trust someone who replaces friends like expendable commodities on a frequent basis.  Thier loyalty goes as far as their need of you and then (to paraphrase Maxine Sanders) with a shrug of their shoulders, they’ll tell you they can’t beat themselves over the past….nevertheless, Maxine loves nothing more than to live in the past and profit as much as she can from it.

Failure – to hex, bind and heal must be a bitter pill to swallow when you’ve been telling the world what you were about to do and even took the trouble of flying thousands of miles to get to a special location and hold a Grand Sabbat (yet another Grand Scale Flop). Remember this online bragging when the whole animal sacrifice issue blew up?

spot of light relief

And your daughter is a prime example…you stupid cunt.

Lying to oneself, pretending that detractors, harpooners and gossip are defeated while in fact they are tearing you asunder doesn’t make your wishes magically come true and by the look of it neither does Maxine’s magic. You’re both fucking useless, so instead of covering your ears next time someone deals a few home truths on you, if I were you, I’d listen very carefully to what they have to say.

famous last words

This quote makes Maxine Sanders sounds like one of those Catholic priests harping about god being on their side but we know magic is not partial like the Abrahamic god nor it’s not the exclusive possession of one or two people, a group, a tradition.

Magic will always try to cheat. It’s in its nature to create illusions. It will fool you into convincing yourself you’ve succeeded only to sneak behind you and stab you in the neck just as you rejoice in your results. People who project all sort of nefarious scenarios on their opponents end up believing what they imagine as something that actually happened when in actuality, life goes on as usual with its ups and its downs for thir target. This practice of living in one’s constructed imagination is typical of modern witchcraft and one of the main contributing factors to obsessions and degenerative mental health conditions plaguing the community.

Then you’ll hear Maxine solemly declare, there is a price to pay.

And that’s also not true.

It’s not a price. It’s the most logical cause and effect for letting delusional thinking take the driver seat in your life.

According to Firechild, years before their son Victor was born, Alex and Maxine had already worked out all there was to know about magic and had it all under control. They had so much faith in their own magic, they declared their son would one day succeed his father as King of the witches. Then bit by bit their life began to fall apart at the seams. Barely in his 30s, after years of heroin abuse, the heir to the crown suffered a stroke which left him in a semi-vegetative state and severe irreversible brain damage. As in Jonathan Strange and Dr. Norrell tv series, it seems the fairies took the spirit with them and left an empty shell behind. Folklore is full of similar tales of people who brought suffering upon themselves as a consequence of reckless dabblings motivated by greed and vainglorious pursuits that could not be found in their book of life.

So let me rephrase Maxine’s quote for you, “Fate will not be cheated – don’t even think you can overwrite it with magic.”

Fucking cursing and fucking healing, again, for the zillionth time…like that’s all the use you’ve got for magic.

hex and heal

Another article by someone who is repeating what they have read or heard somewhere. How original.  How fucking controversial.

Neither Maxine or Alex wanted to intentionally curse their son but like a greek tragedy, that’s exactly what they did while in prey of mindless grandiosity. In the case of magical practitioners, most curses are self-inflicted with their own arrogance.

Perhaps, it is that just about anyone with the right resources at hand can become a public figure and puppet leader – much like anyone with sufficient funds can run for president in the US – but binding and cursing is not for everyone. To truly become a living scourge for another requires a certain skill and frame of consciousness that is seldom fostered within consumer orientated traditions and wiccan kitsch.

There’s a fair chance the consciousness I am talking about has nothing to do with any magical training Maxine Sanders would be acquainted with and remains secret to most simply because the ability to curse is a recessive trait some people are born with and they cannot help – only learn to control.

The ability to heal in humans comes from the external environment. It can be medicine plants or it can be a deity. Either way, humans may be able to alleviate pain but cannot heal because we are all subject to disease and death, and as such, the amount of life force at our disposal is sufficient for one individual alone.

The misconception linking cursing to healing endures because modern witches still can’t tell the difference between a curse and magical warfare tactics.

On the same account, Reiki is not witchcraft but a westernised new age fad that found its way in Alexandrian lore since Maxine Sanders developed an interest in it. It brings back memories of those fucking power rods and the days we all had to stand in circle, around a photograph of this woman called Francis. Our coven leaders would tell us to build our golden crosses, extend our right hand and send blue light, then gold, then blue again while intoning “sinew to sinew and bone to bone, muscle to muscle and vein to vein, make the body whole gain.” It felt like a Star Wars meet Jesus Christ scenario with Gerald Gardner thrown in.  You could almost hear the atmosphere around us groan in exasperation “Not again!”  These power rods never made a bliding bit of difference unless doctors prescribed this whiny old cunt friend of Maxine, strong enough medication. She was an ageing self-entitled cunt who thought people owed her their energy.

Kubler Ross is another psycho-pop fad aimed at inducing a placebo effect on those the technique is applied to. If you so shit your pants at the prospect of dying and need some sort of a tampon to prevent your fear from leaking, go for it but don’t go boasting about refinement, refusing to dilute rituals or being true to the Art Magical because these fads are anything but Art Magical.

So, what is the problem with saying it like it is?

And please, less of this bullshit about not seeking converts because that’s exactly what all these crocodile tears and online propaganda are about.

 

 

Pulpits of Alexandrian Witchcraft

It seems to be just the right time to re-dress balance on the question of mental illness. These days it is only too often offered up as an excuse for being divinely touched. It is a difficult topic to debate without tangible examples, however, common sense cannot be misapplied outside of a ritual context.

Should we be critical of those who proclaim membership to elitist groups? Yes, we should. We should scrutinise every aspect of their life and personality before accepting their claims. Yes, we should also judge a whole tradition by the fruits it bears. A dying tree will only produce rotten fruit. A chain is as strong as its weakest link.

Today is Prince Harry’s wedding. No skin off any occultist’s nose. And yet…pulpit1

But let’s take a look at who’s wagging the finger from the pulpit:

Spare a moment to think about how this presumed chav, David Beckham, got to where he is today and what Alexandrian witchcraft did for this woman. You know, talent vs wearing Stonehenge on a knitted jumper just to make a point – hey, look at me I’m a witch!

Third degree High Priestess elevated by Alex Sanders himself being publicly reprimanded upon opening her mouth. We wonder what it must feel like to look like a Little Britain character who sounds just like her.

Consumerism and the witch

Fresh from the social media department, we’ve had news of Sarah Ann Lawless directing witches to the Holiday Shopping Guide for the Modern Mystic and Witch.

Aha! Just add Modern before Mystic and Witch and here you have it, a politically correct way to address Millennial spiritual consumers.

She chirped and thrilled: “Very cool to have my shop ‘Fern and Fungi’ (shouldn’t have been Fungai?) mentioned along with other botanical wizards in this witchy gift guide.

Ah the Holiday season: botanical wizards to one side, consumers waving their cash on the other.

Now you see what mysticism and witchcraft have been reduced to – a mass market for the instant gratification of the identity conscious.

Perhaps that’s how authentic witchcraft proposes to slip through the fingers of the unworthy.  Just provide the masses with a Land of Boobies, ample distractions to keep them busy and give them that feeling of belonging they cannot find through lack of self-disciplined application. Nobody wants to be taught anymore, certainly not the Pinocchio  generations. Once their bellies are full of junk and satiated, they won’t be searching further any time soon, so knowledge can remain safely hidden and at the same time purses will tingle with the gold of fools and coffers overflow to build corporate empires for the master puppeteers.

Crafty! Crafty indeed!

Still you should be warned that there are those who prey on human weaknesses and would be only too glad to assist you along the path of degeneration.

So let’s put this bee in the ears of readers and stand back to watch, for how long will it take millennials to realise they are being deliberately conned, derailed and exploited by ‘wizards’ to whom the Craft never quite opened its doors to them in the first place?

Thirty plus years going around the block and never needed to buy anything from anyone. Plants grow even in your local area. All you need is an eye to spot them and just get off your arse to create your own magic. If you really have to shop, do it intelligently and work the spell of saving yourself cash. Learn to make your own products. The internet is full of free resources and stop make excuses about lack of time.

Millennials would do better organising themselves into treasure hunting bands and give themselves the education their school system has denied anyone born after the 70s.  Alternate Pinocchio with Plato before even considering diving in headfirst into any cauldron.

As for books, rare, old and new…let me whisper something in your ear. There’s a little community online, hosted in the least expected part of the world, where you can find a treasure throve of books on the occult. Some authors and book sellers, including Amazon would be shitting bricks if they knew their books are there and can be safely downloaded at zero cost, whilst they charge exorbitant prices for a fancy bookbinding.

For once, do a truly rebellious act this Holiday Season: save yourself money and fuck the consumerist machine.
