The seventh chapter of Chemical Serpents is titled “Illumination”. To illuminate in literal terms is to supply or brighten with light, in metaphorical terms it is to enlighten. Enlightenment is something spiritual types often talk about without actually defining it very well. For one thing it is not a state that once attained is ...more
Ego as the Sacrifice
Our ego is shaped by external circumstances, our environment, upbringing etc. We take it to be ourselves until something shakes this self image and proves us otherwise. The initiations such as Abramelin serve this purpose. In our daily lives the attention is directed solely onto the outside world. Our ego is built ...more
It has been a full week since the amazing Festival23 weekend came to a close, and I thought I'd do a quick write up from the perspective of Dana and myself.
First off, there was a LOT happening. In addition to the 'Pyramind' main stage, there was a 'Third Eye Space' tent dedicated to rituals, workshops ...more
Just like may other things in my life, my personal relationship with the secret fire started off as a total surprise. Before it happened I had spent over seven years hanging out with the New Age and holistic therapy circles and I had learned lots about the energy work. Yet somehow kundalini escaped my attention. ...more
"Be sorry and sympathetic for my terrible plight! " Moan the souls in all the realms that revel in their suffering.
"For I am downtrodden and shunned by all others, through naught of my own doing."
"Watch me at work and marvel, see how I employ my genius and meticulous manipulation!" Croon the rich and avaricious, who ...more
In the Cybermorphic Chaosphere system the sun corresponds to Ego. It has been something I always had a hard time comprehending. I grew up studying Kaballah and to me Sun=Tipharet=heart. Ego in my perception would be based 'lower down' on the Tree perhaps in Yesod (Purple). I was heavily influenced by the study of Eastern ...more
A few months ago Dana Varahi and myself were interviewed by Alyson Dunlop on her show, ADX Files. We discussed our own contact experiences, our use of magic, evocation and CE5 techniques, and Operation Intruder. This is a great show, and if you haven't given it a listen yet consider this a timely reminder...
In terms ...more
The sixth chapter of Chemical Serpents is titled “The World Dragon Tree”. The image of the tree as symbolic of the cosmos is a ubiquitous one, with Yggdrasil and the Tree of Life of the Kabbalah providing enduring examples. Traditionally the tree has come to represent a bridge between the underworld and the heavens, ...more
The fourth chapter of Chemical Serpents is titled “The Elements” and explores the concept of the Quintessence. Quintessence means “fifth element” or “soul”. Also known as aether, this was considered the highest element in ancient and medieval philosophy, the element that permeates all nature and is the essence of a thing in its ...more
Here is the amazing artwork by Janice Duke that will feature on the cover of my upcoming book Daimonic Essense. The book charts my journey into researching and making Abramelin Oil and Incense. It will introduce the reader to its rich historical and multicultural background dating to ancient Babylon and Egypt. It will present the ...more

Owls are not what they seem.
The Giant in Twin Peaks.
I came across Mike Clelland when listening to podcastufo.com and the stories he described intrigued me. I found other interviews with him and ended up listening to them all. I rarely do that unless I am really impressed with the speaker. ...more
It has been nearly 3 months since I completed my Abramelin Operation. In the last weeks of it I began working on a sculpture representing my Daimon or Holy Guardian Alien as I like to call them. The representation, needless to say, is a frivolous attempt at channeling the inexpressible qualities of this entity. I ...more
The third chapter of Chemical Serpents is titled “Trinity”, with each of my illustrations for it concerning threes and trinities. You may have noticed that the first chapter, the second and this one, concern the one, then the one becoming two, and now the three, or the two becoming three. This theme carries forward ...more
Yet another bit of my awakening story. For those of you who can't remember it I would advise you to read at least one of my articles before you continue the reading.
Towards the end of 2014 I have experienced a full blown kundalini awakening. A sudden awakening of a secret fire is a mind blowing ...more
The second chapter of Chemical Serpents is titled “Eggs and the Androgynous Child”, carrying the general theme of serpent symbolism into its relation to eggs, their offspring and serpent-like mythic beings, with specific reference to the Philosophers Egg, the Cosmic Egg, the Monas Hieroglyph, and the figures of the Androgyne, Baphomet, N’Aton and Sophia.
Over the next few weeks I will be posting a number of the sketches I produced for the full page illustrations I created for Chemical Serpents, along with the fully realised images. I was commissioned to illustrate this book by When Illuminated Press for Anton Channing, and enjoyed it thoroughly as it explores symbolism ...more

It's a rainy, cold and misty day in the Scottish Highlands. I am sipping a still hot cup of coffee and wondering what strangeness will unveil in the days and weeks to come... This blog is indeed inspired by Twin Peaks for those who wonder but it is also inspired ...more
Date with the Selkie.
I dreamed seals again. I was strolling along a rocky shore in the evening. As I went over some boulders I noticed a man and a child standing beside an injured seal. They called for help and I agreed to wait with the seal. The seal had an injured eye and at ...more
"Heaven and Hell are within us, all of the gods are within us. All the gods, all the heavens, all the worlds are within us"
"Dream is a personal experience of that deep, dark ground that is the support of our consciousness lives, and the myth is the society's dream. The myth is the public dream ...more
In my recent blogs I began to describe a story of my awakening and a strange love story between myself and Aariel- one of the old Kia agents. Before moving onto the next bit I believe I need to make a small intermission. I have realised how difficult it is to describe your inner experiences ...more
In my previous blog I began to describe the story of my awakening which took place over a year ago. I believe it is a valuable record of my personal journey and possibly an inspiration for other mages. Kundalini - (the secret Fire or the Serpent as some people call it) is one of those ...more
Wondering what Kia Agents think about artificial intelligence?
"Once we reach a certain threshold of computational capacity and comprehensive understanding of the human brain, we could finally simulate the brain and obtain programmable sentience. And that's not far-off in the future!"
"We're in the process of designing a new intelligent species, AGIs, which would be in a ...more
