    • Did i get the spelling of that name wrong? I will have to go thru and correct it. Like i said early on Woden13 these are old old notes just copy pasted from the original documents with some format editing but no editing for spelling, punctuation or grammar which would all take too long. I am glad at least Someone is paying attention to them besides some of my old friends who have hard copies of this (old friends of Kenneth Grant) so TY for reading and reblogging them. I have six more to go yet on Vodoun, my various versions of AC’s Star Ruby based on other Sephiroth, chakras, deities and their corresponding stones, a short twisted story that came to me after being given a tour of the old cemeteries of the city where the aforementioned Soror of the Q who worked with KG, and…. I am not sure i am going to publish the last three, which are very very personal UPGs from a triple trance i had in one day years ago regarding a certain Star Goddess whose name i will, if i publish them, not mention but will say She is connected with Sirius B. BB/ 93/ Hail Wotan. (PS – I am Way Way behind on reading my saved posts that run over a hundred of various blogs i follow so my apologies if i have not commented on anything u have posted of late.)

  1. I am reading and trying to get my head round some of the things you have been posting recently (Cassie and I are on catchup). There is a wealth of information here in the last few weeks alone. Your words and the way you link ideas transports me into a more magical way of thinking. I am still a baby witch in a way with Cassie as my teacher, but I think the way my mind changes when I read your blog sometimes is certainly helping me to catch up and feel more like a genuine witch. Many thanks, Sophie

    • Thanks Sophie. It makes me feel great when i am stimulating someone’s magickal mind. If u r referring to the old ZAXON publishing material, that is from a couple decades ago and i just copy pasted them with little editing just to get them out there. I have two more where i explain an UPG of meeting the Star Goddess of Sirius-B, something Kenneth Grant was very into. But i hesitate because it is SO personal and there are some very “politically incorrect” things there of magickal nature and i just do not want to reveal too much of something so personal. If you want to email me i will send you the PDFs of those documents, as i have written before on the posts in a comment on one of them which you may have missed. I too am wwwwaaaayyy behind in reading posts and after filing over a hundred of them i finally just deleted them and started over trying to keep up by am behind again. I am just too busy with many many tasks and problems here, many irons in the fire. I have a post part way done on one issue which will explain. Blessings of our Horned Lord upon you and Cassie. Lee
