Welcome to the second magical course of Dragon Rouge. When 
beginning this second course you arc expected to have carefully studied 
and practised magical course 1 . Wc also recommend that you read as 
much is possible of the recommended books from course 1 . You should 
also be initiated in 1,0, if not [his should be done ai soon as possible. 
This course prepares you for initiation in 2,0 and to be granted this you 
must be initiated in 1 ,0. This second magical course is also divided into six parts rhat will be sent to you 
in six letters. The first five letters contains magical theory and practise that belongs to the second level 
in Dragon Rouge. The last letter contains instructions for the second initiation and For the short essay 
that the adepi shall write. For every initiation you shall be able to take more responsibility and initiatives 
in your development. Your contact with the order and your contact person will become deeper. The 
initiation system of Dragon Rouge that is based on the draconiar. magic is meant to draw the lines for 
an undogmatic and dynamic spiritual progression. 

The second level - The sphere of the moon 

The second level in draconian magic is represented by the moon and in particular its dark side. The 
dark side of die moon-sphere is called Gamaliel according to the qabalak Lilith is "the mother of all 
demons and queen of the night", other dark goddesses belonging to Gamaliel is Hd, Hcid* Hecate, 
Kali and the Noras, The sphere of the moon is the sphere of time and fate and the ruling goddesses are 
connected to these matters. The name Kuli can also be interpreted as "rime", the Norns are weaving the 
web of destiny and Hel is the ruler of death and thus also of life.The goddesses represent the different 
phases of the moon which is one of the most important manifestations of time. On many levels, 
physically as well as metaphysically, they represent the blood of the moon, the menstruation* The 
sphere of the moon is alio the level of dreams, visions, fantasies and hallucinations. It is the first of the 
astral levels and the sphere through which almost all magic operates. Here a magician can manipulate 
dreams and visions in the personal unconscious as well as in the collective unconscious. Here one can 
learn how to control ones own destiny and destiny pattern in ones surroundings. The dark goddesses 
often appear as spiders weaving the web of destiny, time and dreams. Through magical progression the 
magician becomes the weaver of his own web and his own dreamy This can be the effect of an erotic 
meeting with the dark goddess, or by working closely with thk force and finding these aspects in 
oneself. The meeting with the goddess and the methods of the initiation to the sphere of the moon can 
be different depending on if one is male or female, This sphere is connected to sexuality and the 
primitive instincts. Here one will confront unconscious desires and instincts who can appear ai frightening 
and can have an subversive or overthrowing effect on ones lower Self (ego). This is also a level where 
perception is going through changes often with a hallucinatory character This goes deeper as ones 
initiation into the astral goes on. This can sometimes be frightening at first, before one is able to control 
the astral Self, something which happens when one is releasing the control of the mundane self and its 
limitations and thoughts. The moon -sphere is where the meeting between the outer objective world 
and the inner subjective world take place. This is the level between the observer and the observed* 
which is symbolized by the sun sphere (Tipher ethiThagirion) and the earth-sphere (Lilith/Malkuth). 



Here one can find conscious and unconscious fantasies, concepts, though rs and feelings. The magic of 
the moon-sphere is mainly witchcraft. Therefore this second course will go through the basics of 
witchcraft. We will aJso study topics like sex magic, astral travels* dreams, demonoJogy and other 
important subjects that corresponds to the second level on the path of draconian magic. 

Development on the Tree ofLife 

In the ordinary QabaJah the adept is walking up the Tree of Life to reestablish the original order of Gods 
creation. In the Qliphotic QababK the adept is instead walking up (or down) the tree of knowledge. It 
is the second of the two trees in the Garden of Eden that is mentioned in Genesis, The Tree of Life 
represents different manifestation levels of order. T*h e tree o f knowledge rep resents levels of deconstruction 
and chaos and is sometimes referred to as the 'Tree of Death". The Tree of life as the so called dght 
emanations that created the present world/ conception of the world. The tree of knowledge is the left 
emanations that disintegrates the present, The magician begins a disintegrating process to transform the 
present into some thing new, the moment that he or she cats the fruit of knowledge. The tree of knowledge 
and the Tree of Life is mirrors of each other and the progression is parallel on both trees. One tiling that 
is unique with the draconian path is that the magician works with both trees in an integrating process. 
Many dark magical systems are only focused on the destructive power of the left emanations without 
being conscious of their reactions on the Tree of Life. This is even mote the case with the practitioners 
of the white magic who in their work of trying to restore the order on the Tree of Lire often release great 
destructive energies. If you are searching for the good you will end up finding evil. If you try to create 
chaos you will probably help to create order On the draconian path the magician eats die fruits of 
knowledge that the serpent offers. The progression on the tree of knowledge comes through the 
destruction of the present order with its limitations. Therefore the dark magician walks on the left hand 
path. The draconian magician is unique because he/she is at the same rime conscious of and controls the 
reflecting effects on the right hand path. On every level of disintegration that the magjeian passes 
through, something new is created. The magician disintegrates with the left emanations and constructs 
with the right emanations. On the draconian path the magician personally takes on the work of Creadon 
and goes from being a creation to become a creator. This is the total revolt against God, the gods and the 
present order which is symbolized by the myths of the flood, the fell of the angels, Prometheus stealing 
the fire from the gods andother myths around the planet The magician begins the aichemistie path of 
progression to rise up from the slave-level of being a Creadon caught up in the laws and limitations of 
creation. Through reaching the personal power, the inner fire/ die Dragon, the magician breaks the bonds 
and his / her existence reaches divi nity. 

El even levels and fo ur spheres 


The gradual initiation of the magician goes through eleven phases in the four worlds. This is illustrated 
in the Tree of life/death symbol. The four worlds is what in the draconian levels of initiation is called 
the earth-sphere^ the moon-sphere, the sun- sphere and the star-sphere. The earth-sphere is the outer, 
objective, material world that the senses perceives. The moon-sphere is the \tvc\ of perception where 
we have our thoughts, feelings, conceptions and dreams. The sun-sphere is the subject, the earth-sphere 
the object and the moon-sphere is the reflections the subject makes of the object, the pictures that the 



observer makes of the observed. The star- sphere is the £ ran seen dental, the divine spark, the hidden god 
in man [hat the Self reaches through overcoming itself Tt is the pupil in the eye of the observer, the 
mystical not-being that is the core of everything. The four worlds belong to the material, the asrrai, the 
mental and the divine {the casual or spiritual plane). The first initiation of the magician is concerned 
with or ien ration in the basics of magic to receive the map and find the gate. The gate is the cave of 
Lilith which is the crack in the material objective world and leads into the world of conceptions on the 
astral level The second initiation which k the goal of this course is concerned with the foundadons of 
controlling the principles on the astral levds. The astral plane is the level where the magical operations 
of the 3,0 and 4.0 initiations takes place. At the 5.0 initiation the magician enters the mental level and 
the sun sphere. 

Without getting into details the initiation process can be described in the Following way together 
with the Qabalistic spheres. On the earth plane (Malkuih /Lilith 1.0) the adept of magic conies into 
contact with the occult. On the astral plane he passes through the unconscious (Yesod/Gamaliel 2.0), 
the thoughts (Hod/Samad 3.0), and feelings (Nerzach/A'arab Taraq 4„Q)„ On the mental plane the 
magician is one with his complete and united Self (Ti pheredk/Thagiri on 5*0) and understands the 
polarities and functions of the Self (Geburah/Golaehab 6;0 and Chesed/Ghaagsheblah). Through deep 
understanding and Knowledge of the Self and its functions the magician can break the limits and 

boundaries and reach the limitless power* This takes place on the divine plane, when the third eye is 
opened (the eye of Shivs-Lucircr-Odin) and one is gazing into the infinite dark mysteries 
(Binah/Satarid 8.0) and xes and formulates ones own truth in it (Chokmah/Ghagid 9.0). Here the 
word of the magician is formulated, and -logos or the negative word on the left hand path. The magician 
has now become a god or reached unity with God depending on which path he has chosen (Kcther/ 
Thaumiel 10.0). For the white magician this is the end. The Self has been annihilated and the soul has 
become one wiih God and reached the bliss of Nirvana. For the dark magician chis is the start. Here is 
where the real work of creation can begin. This work can begin on the 1 1.0 level which is the last but 
also the first. Here lies the mysteries of the twin god and the black holes to universe B. 

Dragon Rouge ate only initiating the Fust four degrees, after that one is initiated into the Dragon 
Order. The initiation on the divine plane can not be formulated here. Shortly can he said that this 
initiation is conducted by the "serpent" itself and that the three Qliphotic levels completes the prophecy 
of the serpent in the Tree of Knowledge (Genesis 3,5): "but God (Kcther) knows that when you eat 
from it (the Tree of Knowledge B Han hizon"), your eyes shall be opened (Satarid), and you will become 
like God (Thaumiel) and know what good and evil is (Ghagid). 

Symbolic language and paradoxes 

It must be understood that all symbols, conceptions and mythological pictures that is used in magic is 
nothing else than just symbols, conceptions and pictures. Many who are unexperienced believes that 
the maps of the magical worlds (the Tree of Lire/ Death etc) is the magical reality. This is not the case. 
There is no limited area called Gamaliel. Existence is not divided as it is illustrated in the SephirotV 
Qliphoth. They are working maps for the magician to be able to find his way easier in the unknown. An 
ordinary map of a material place is not the same as the place. It is a simplification that does not present 
the actual area in reality. But nevertheless the map is needed co be able to orientate, it is a useful tool 
And a map looks different to everyone who reads it, A map for cars or a map for orient ecrers picturing 
the same area might look rather different. It is she same with magical maps, Many meaningless 
argumentations concerning which magical system which is right or which is wrong could be avoided if 



one could just remember that the system is not the reality. Unfortunately there is many modem magicians 
that over-emphasizes the freedom from systems and traditions. This is normally even wont They can 
not find their way and are soon lost in the labyrinths of magic. Another phenomena chat the attentive 
adept might confront is the many paradoxes and contradictions that can be found in the study of 
magic. The theories can give a hint of the reality and never a complete description of it. The difficulty 
of two dimension ally mapping a three dimensional world (for example the maps of our planet) Is much 
easier than picturing and describing the occult dimensions. It is like trying to explain colours to one 
who was bom blind. One is forced to describe it with symbols, like*red is warmth* etc This is how the 
pictures and symbols of magic is created. Through symbol* and conceptions from our world we are 
describing other worlds. Ir is impossible to avoid paradoxes. All attempts to create water proof logical 
systems of reality ends up with showing nothing at all. Paradoxes are necessary in magic. Contradictions 
arc used to create an understanding of the reality behind the conceptions. At the Samael 3,0 initiation 
you will learn more about "the magic of contradictions* and how it is expressed in anti-inteJIectualism 
and "controlled insanity". There is two more extremes that should be avoided when magical texts arc 
interpreted. One is a fundamentalistic, lircraltsdc reading, Religious people often misinterpret die^rmfcols 
as being reality. They believe that the devil is an evil monster with horns and tail, or more often that the 
magical worlds arc exact pictures of reality. The other common extreme is when the magical symbols 
are reduced to an every day pycholngical plane, Lilich myths arc interpreted as mother complexes and 
God is an projection of a dominant father etc. The symbols of magic can fruitfully be used in both 
religious and psychological purposes but the student of magic should use it for magical purposes. 

An ti n om ian is m 

One thing that can be found in all left hand path systems is antinomianism. The word means "against 
the law" and of course docs not mean any juridical laws Magical antinomianism is breaking a culture 
or religious tradition. It is often characterized as a crime against the traditional and the conventional* 
Breaking the tradition gives freedom to create ones own traditions, conventions and rules according to 
the magical development. Breaking rules, habits and traditions also releases psychic energy. Energy that 
used to be focused on a habit can now be focused on magical work or other things in life. This change 
can confront a person with some temporary anxiety which is why so many people avoid it. But the 
magkian uses the breaking of a tradition to focus energy from the unessential to the essential. This is 
how to grind out the Black Diamond. A magician sees through, becomes aware ot and breaks all 
meaningless traditions, rules and habits. He or she focuses all energy that were uncontrolled on the 
magical progression. This is to go against the grain on a deeper level By going against the scream of 
creation, the right emanations, the magician breaks out the energy chat is hidden in every emanation 
level. This is the mechanics behind the Qliphoth. For every law of creation there is an anti-law. Dark 
magicians have often ritualized the magical antinomianism. 

The 5M ceremony ofTancrism is one example. Here die participants engages themselves in five forbidden 
taboos, The black mass of sacanism is another famous example. Here the cross is turned upside down 


and the mass is read backwards. The red sects of Voodoo and the cabrit chomaios arc famous for 
breaking all traditions. In the Vamachara-yoga there is a system called Vt pari ta karani, where the 
practitioner goes against his senses and conducts the revolting to awake the inner force, This is ritualized 
in the unusual and extreme form of the 5 M ceremony where the five m's mean: "rneha", urine* mamsa , 

human flesh, "mala", excrements, "medha* 1 * blood (often blood of menstruation), and "mehana" sperm. 



These five "jn" is consumed in what is believed to be one of die most powerful rituals. 

Usually antinomianism is only practised on a mental plane. It is about breaking psychological 
taboos to release psychic energy. On the different levels of the Qliphoth one will confront different 
antinomianistic principals. On Gamaliel one will confront the hidden fantasies, desires and sexual 
taboos. Magical antinomianism is a complicated and dangerous method were it is easy to loose oneself 
If one is to break traditions and laws it demands great personal moral and discipline. Otherwise one 
will be a victim of ones own anarchy. To begin this work one will need a magical advisor as a guide, 

Dreams and astral journeys 

Astral journeys k one of the most central phenomenas in occultism. In this second course we will go 
even deeper into this topic since the second level is connected to the astral level. There is a lot of 
interesting books about astral journeys, the astral and out of the body experiences. The books by Mon- 
roe and Ingela Cole are recommended as well as the Astral Projection Workbook by J.H Brennan. 
There are many misunderstandings regarding the astral plane. Some white magical groups dismiss it as 


black magic and some dark magical groups as white magic. Of course astral journeys have got nothing 
to do with either black or white magic. These are levels that can be entered using certain methods. 
Almost all magic operates through or on die astral plane. Every magician must learn about the astral 
worlds. Anyone who disagrees on this, is doing it in lack of knowledge or because they have railed to 
enter into even the first extraordinary IcveL Though there arc some who are staying to long and to often 
on the astral and uses this to escape from everyday problems. Those who are doing this are entering the 
astral plane on a personal and very vague level that is related to day dreaming. Even though one is 
meeting fantasies and dreams on the astral level It does noc mean chat the astral plane is a fantasy worid. 
Serious insights into the objective astral worlds are very trying and demands discipline. 


The astral world is the world between the objective and the subjective world and all dreams, conceptions 
and fantasies can be found here. This does not mean that the astral plane is some kind of obscure 
fantasy world. Astral experiences can be more dear and intense than what wc experience on the mate- 
rial plane. From one point of view the astral worlds can be seen as objective spheres since they can be 
visited by many people at the same time that can verify each others experiences. The astral plane is the 
level from which the objective material plane is formed. All variations that this plane could have had 

can be found there. What is fantasies, dreams and hallucinations for us can be experienced as reality on 
the astral plane. The astral level is the border between life and death. When the physical body and ego 
of a person dies, he finds himself on the astral plane where he confronts all conscious and unconscious 
conceptions. The Tibetan and Egyptian book of the dead describes how one can pass through this. 
Finally even the astral body dies and the Self returns to itself on the sun-sphere on the mental plane. 
From here the Self can or will be reborned on to the material plane through the astral plane. For the 
majority of people this is unconsjeious and uncontrolled mechanisms. When the)' die they sleep themselves 
into a dark uncertainty. A magician learns how to control his Self and his consciousness and can through 
dreamconrxol even control his Self after death. 

On the astral plane there is death and life, time and space even if it follows a different continuity 
than on the material plane. On die sun-sphere there is no life or death, no time and space. Only the 
existing Self can be found here. On the material plane we experience day and night the same way that 
we experience life and death. On the sun/sun-sphere there k'only existence, above night and day /life 

and death. 




Many be] i eve that out-of-the-body experiences is die only way to [ravel into die astral plane. It is die 
most difficult but also the most direct way to experience the astral worlds. In magical circles there is 
often just one or a few who arc experienced astral travellers. The others develop other magical abilities 
like; mental magic or material, manipulating magic etc. But everybody must learn to control the astral 
mechanisms, through dreamcontrol or working with mirrors or crystal halls. 

Dreams are in between the personal unconscious and the astral. Consciousness can be compared 
to an iceberg in an ocean, What is above the surface of the water is the personal conscious and what is 
under the surface is the personal unconsciousness. The sea is the collective unconsciousness (borrowing 
a term from CG. Jung). The Self can travel between these levels. The sea is the same as the astral . In 
Shamanism one differs between small and great dreams. 

Small dreams are in the personal unconscious and can be concerned with mundane pleasures and 
problems and are often indistinct and confused. Great dreams are in the collective or astral plane. 
They are dear and filled with symbols. We are not just dreaming ar night, we are dreaming all the time. 
Also when we are awake. Through controlling the dreams we can control our consciousness and our 



He Magician 2.0 

The higher grades you will be initiated into the more responsibility you will have and the more will be 
expected of you. To develop further you must refine abilities like: focusing your will, discipline, openness, 
patience, responsibility and be willing to sacrifice. You shall be active and involved in the progression of 
the order in the way that you feel suits you best. You shall help others as you have been helped. You 
should be open and respectful to your brothers and sisters of the order. It Is important to co-operate to 
create the best foundation as possible for the order. This foundation is your chance to have a dynamic 
and powerful development on the draco man path.

-progression of the self or ego-trip? 


One of the most used fashion words of our time is individualism. Everybody are individualists and are 


placing the individual in the centre Everybody are focusing on themselves and a collective where the 
individual can be helped to help himself arc created. Often relieving the individual of some money, a 
lot of money. In occultism the progression of the adept have always been central and this can of course 
be seen as the most obvious form of individualism. But there arc traps. The term individualism is so 
frequently used that it Jades any real meaning. In satanist circles following La Vey the most extreme 


ultra individualism k preached: We are individuals! Of course this is a sane reaction to hundreds of 
years of christian oppression. But here wc can find the most naive view on individualism hidden under 
these proclamations about the rights of the individual. And they are actually a real danger for the 
development of the individual, An ego-trip and shouting out loud about individualism is hardly the 
same as a fruitful progression of the individual. 




Black and white magic have often been separated on the basis chat the black magic has been centred 
around the ego and the white magic has been altruistic and concerned with helping others. The reality 
behind such believes shows something coiripfcreiy different. That self- appointed white magicians should 
in any way be less egoistic than so called black magicians is not so obvious. Or thai they should even try 
to be. On the contrary to call one self a white magician; an uncgoisric magician tilled with love and 
compassion, reveals the most sclrrighieous view of one self. 

In the occult the selfrightcousness has always been one of the greatest boundaries For evolution. Everyone 
wants CO be die ^master* at the same time and through this will not learn a thing. Everyone wants to be 
a leader and the organisations falls apart and no one achieves anything. 

If one wants to achieve magical progression one must first accept the rules of magical progression. 
An individual must first and foremost sacrifice himself to gain himself If one does not wish to give in 
to the conscious rules of a magical society one will continue to be a slave under the unconscious rules of 
the big mass of people. Many "rrcclandng" occultists mean that their magical development works best 
outside the frames of a magical society, Often this is just shows that they are deceiving themselves and 
are really afraid to leave the frames of the mundane society. A free individual chooses group and works 
loyal and self sacrificing inside the group. This way an individual can reach personal perfection according 
to the personal dreams and visions

Lepr 1?A*J D patI? 

In ail societies during all times man has created rules and traditions concerning the social life, how we 
view the world, ourselves and other people. Ideal principals of how one should be and act has been the 
goals of all acts of man. In religious environments these ideal principals have been attributed to the 
divine. All these rules and laws that man created did in time sink down into the unconscious and man 
lived according to them as if they were laws of narure. One part of rhc left hand path is amino mianism 
where all laws and rules axe broken systematically to make one aware of chem and not follow them 
blindly Docs this mean that the left hand path is an anarchistic and criminal path without laws or 
ideals? Many immature teenage satanists have misinterpreted the antinomianism of left hand path this 
way This is a wrong interpretation or at least a very self destructive view. 

The left hand path leads the individual out to chaos and the Dragon. This is a state without the 
limitations and laws of the human intellect. In chaos there is now laws, no limits or limitations. Man 
would immediately be annihilated if thrown directly into chaos. Mankind is defining her own existence 
with limits and limitations. If these would disappear man would disappear. A magician on the left hand 
path is working towards this state of toed freedom* To avoid annihilation a magician must create a 
powerful inner structure. Through being conscious of the unconscious structure of the big mass a 
magician can be free from it* This should not be interpret as being an antisocial personality or a sociopath. 
This would only limit the possibilities of the magician. One must never forget chat the process ol magic 
or alchemy does not have to be expressed in the outer mundane life. 



It is a paradox that chaos includes complete order. Not like the laws of the cosmos that h bound by 
controlling laws. The order in chaos Is more like the order of an organism and nor like a machine. 
Chaos is eternal dynamics and eternal movement that follows patterns. This is illustrated in the fractal' 
forms. These patterns are order in chaos. The order of the cosmos h following statical structures. Here 
the difference between the left and the right hand path can be illustrated. The right hand path strives to 
reestablish the order of the cosmos and through this man will enter a static eternal state (symbolized by 
the Garden of Eden) ruled by the cosmic laws. The left hand path strives to break out of the cosmos and 
through this man can reach a dynamical eternal and divine state, free to follow the true will. To reach 
Chaos - the Dragon - a great inner moral is required. When one chooses to break out of the outer and 
unconscious rules one must create inner conscious rules* To be able to work with the powers of Chaos 


one musr have a very strong inner structure. If not one will be consumed by die Dragon.

- aw ALcfrecDical key 


The symbol of Dragon Rouge has been created by the inner circle and was finished by the artist and 
magician Johan Liljcmark. The symbol contains the spiritual progression process that the magician 
goes through* Most conspicuous is the dragon and the eye. The eye represents the beginning as well as 
the end of the alchemical transformation. It is the womb of Lilith and the eye of Lucifer; the gate to the 
other side and to illumination. In Tantra this symbolism is more known as Shiva and Shakti (Lilirh- 
Lucifer) where Shakti is the force that opens the eye of Shiva so that maya, the illusion-Cosmos is 
annihilated. The eye of Shiva is the same as the third eye and the Ajna chakra. 


Shakti is the kundalini (the dragon force) and Kali. In the eye is the symbol of Kali which is the circle 
with the triangle that has a dot in it and Is pointing downwards. This is also the sign of the darkness and 
the mysteries, in which the illuminated gains insight through the opening of the eye. In tantra this is 
the symbol of vamachara (the left hand path). In the Dogon mysteries the eye is a picture of Sirius 
which is the mythical home of the ancient race who taught the first people to use magic In the Bible 
they are represented by the serpent in the Garden of Eden that offered the fruits of knowledge to man 
so that their eyes shall be opened and they will be like God. The fallen angels of enoch and the ancient 
ones in the nccrpnomicon is other examples of the same my tli- historical legend. In typhonian alchemy 
Set-Typhon (the egyptianand hermetic dragon-god) represents the mysteries of the eye and Kheperas 
entering and rising up from of the underworld to the divine world of the all seeing. In the old norse 
tradition it is Odin who represents the initiation process of ail seeing. His entering and rising from the 
nine worlds and his sacrifice of one eye in the well of Mimer is described in the new symbol of Dragon 

The dragon in the symbol represents the kundalini and vril, the inner and the outer power The two 
wings indicates that the power is rising. They are also describing the dualistic powers of existence. They 
are the double axe> the hammer of Thar and a symbol of Tau and Thaumiel, the end (the gate of the 
new beginning) and the dark uwin god, The dragon is facing west which reveals its connection to the 
left hand path. The movement of the dragon includes two s- movements where one is hidden behind 
(or inside) the eye. This movement is the double energies of the dragon, called Ida and Pingala. But it 
is also the power of illumination of the side of darkness and the side of light, the sun and the black sun. 




For the draconian magician the new symbol of Dragon Rouge h a map that reveals the alchemical 
transformation. Through passing through the gate (the womb of Lilith-Shakti-Hel) and reaching into 
the unknown the magician will find the power (the Dragon) that leads to illumination (the eye of 
Lucifer-Shiva- Odin), The Dragon and the eye axe symbols of the same principal since the word drakon 
comes from a greek verb thai means "to see". The Dragon is the power that makes all seeing possible. 
The new symbol of Dragon Rouge contains many more aspects that will be presented in connection 
with Initiations. 


According to vril-teadiings and Feng Shui to use a dragon as a symbol and to wear it brings luck in 


The Dragon is the winged serpent. The Dragon unites the serpent with the eagle, what is below 
with what is above. 

The Dragon is the four elements. The wings are Air. The reptile body is Earth. The scales is Water 
and the burning breath is Fire. Thus the Dragon is the fifth clemcni-the Spirit. 

The Dragon is> in the form of Ourobouros, the serpent that bites its own tail- The Dragon is the 
beginning of the end and the end of the beginning. 

The Dragon is beyond good and evil, night and day, female and male, plus and minus. The 
Dragon arises through the meeting of opposites. The Dragon is the polarity between plus and 


, The Dragon is the symbol of Tao-The Journey- and The Journey h the goal. The Dragon i 
. dynamic eternity. • 

The dark is the unknown, what is repressed from the conscious. In the dark is the hidden treasures 
of the soul. 


If we light a candle a shadow appears* The more we strive for light the bigger shadow will grow 
behind us. 

In darkness we can find fear. Through confronting darkness we are confronting fear and can be 
- free from it. If we escape the darkness our fear will grow for what :s in the darkness. 

In Dragon Rouge a balance between dark and light, the creative and the destructive is the goal. 




Although Dragon Rouge is a practical magical organisation, it is of great importance that magical 
students of the order achieve a theoretical education as well. Without theory the practical work is 
empty and confused. Dragon Rouge encourage our members to study magical theory hut it is important 
not to become too theoretical and confuse theories with reality. At the 2.0 level of Dragon Rouge 
certain books should have been read, for example Uber Null&Psyehonaui; by Peter Carrol, Maat Magic 

by Ncma, Dancing with Dragons by D. J. Con way and of course the books by Carlos Castancda (especially 
Journey to Ixtlan and Tales of Power.)- The student should also have studied Nietzsche, C.G.Jung and 
Aleistcr Crowley, The following books are recommended reading during this course: 

Flying without a Broom by D J.Conway 

Symbols by J.C-Cooper, also his book Taoism is rcco rnmen ded since Taoism is a draconian path, The 
symbol ofTao is die Dragon- 

Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Hudson 

Masks of Misrule by Nigel Jackson 

Ecstasy through Tantra by John Mum ford 

The Dark Goddess by Marcia Stark and Gycnne Stem 


The Great Book of Tantra by Indra Sin ha 


Secrets of Sex Magic by Prater LLD 

It is alsp recommended that the student should stan collecting the old grimo ires Like Goetia (Lemegeton, 
The lesser keys of Solomon), Key of Solomon, The sacred magic of Abra-meiin the Mage and. other 
books of the black arts. These have both a historical and 3 practical magical value. We also recommend 
our students 10 start to read philosophers like: Hcrakleitos, Plato, Hegel, Schopenhauer and Heidegger. 




The first month should be devoted to in depth meditations and to project the search for knowledge 
into the astral plane. This will lead the dragon force into the astral level and give the magician access to 
power and wisdom from these levels* 

Week 1-2 


■ Meditate over the of the aphorisms of Dragon Rouge, Do this at least three evenings a 
week while gazing into the fine of a red candle, Choose one aphorism every evening and write down 
three personal reflections concerning every aphorism, 

• Make a kundalini meditation every morning standing up. Use the energy to enhance your activities 
during the day. Write down the results. Be aware of your energy and how it is increasing every day 
which makes your daily activities easier and more stimulating. 

• Make a kundalmi meditation when lying in bed at night. Use the energy to become conscious in 


• Realize how you can best channel the dragon energy in concrete actions. Can you spread the 
draconian current through texts that you are writing, music, pictures or actions? All energy that you are 
awakening must be channelled in to action in the outer world. How can you work with and in Dragon 
Rouge. Come with ideas and make reality of your dreams an thoughts. 


■ i 

* Read about the myths of the Dragon in mythological J ex icons, fiction and history books. Medi- 
care and contemplate on the hidden symbolism of the Dragon myth. Write down your reflections. 

Make pictures of the Dragon/ dragons and create symbols for the dragon en erg}'. Do not let yours elf be 
stopped by lack of fantasy or talent. If you are a musician you can create music that illustrates the rising 
of the dragon force or the meeting with the chaos principle - the Dragon. 

* Meditate on the symbol of Dragon Rouge at three separate occasions. Both with eyes closed and 
with open eyes. Try to make the symbol to appear on the retina so that it can be seen with the inner eye. 

■ Create a picture or statue of the Dragon- It can be made of stone, wood, clay or other materials* 

You can also buy a dragon statue in a shop that you can paint yourself Place your Dragon on {he altar 
and initiate by smearing in with musk ail {and eventually a few drops of your awn blood), then let it 
bade in moonlight one night and sunlight one day. When the "Dragon" is teady you should conduct 
the Dragon Ceremony before it three nights in a row. 




CD2kQlCal COURS6 2 

L€TT€R 2 

This second letter of the magical course 2.0 will be focused on bringing 
you an introduction to the magic chat is connected to the second level 
of initiation. This letter ind udes among other things; a chapter about 
astral magic, an introduction to CG Jung and a list of dream symbols. 
The three basic concepts of draconian magic and five elementary 
principles are also presented. They should be your subjects of meditation and contemplation. They are 
based on ancient teachings of philosophers from both west and the east. These teachings are included in 
the draco ni an philosophy. If one is acquainted with philosophy some concepts might be familiar. 
Generally speaking, the draco man philosophy is related 10 thoughts among pre-Socracians such as 
Heraldeitos, old wise Lao Tse in Taoism and post -Christian for non-Christian western) philosophers like 
Nietzsche. Bur die draco nian philosophy is actually a map of experiences with a main task of being a tool 
that can bring the magician magical experiences and power, rather than trying to find a theoretically true 
explanation model of reality. Therefore the draco nian philosophy rests on evolutionary and initiatory 
systems like Alchemy. The five elementary principles are elementary in a wider perspective than just being 
basic. They are each one representing one of the five elements fearrh, fire, air, water and ether). The first 
task of this part is to map die principles in relation to the elements and the elements relation to the 
(Qli photic) Qabaiistic system. 

On the second draconian level the magician explores the dream level and the astral plane. This includes 
a theoretical understanding of this level and the psychology of CG Jung can be a great aid for 
understanding here. But this also means that the magician must work with practical astral magic and 
dive into hisVher dreams. In the previous magical course 1.0 some exercises came with each letter, in the 
second course deeper exercises to gain astral memory and astral vision is included. 

Astral memory 

When the dragon force is awakened and raised to the second level - the Svadhisthana Chakra - the entry 
into the other side begins. An entry that becomes total and complete when one travels out of oneself 
through the last level - the Crown Chakra, On the second level that corresponds to Yesod /Gamaliel in 
the Qabalah one will begin to receive impulses from the other side and from the astral plane. These are 
impulses from worlds that one previously did not know about and therefore censored from consciousness. 
The impulses are mainly of an emotional nature and with the mots in the unconscious sexuality. First 
on the Manipura level (corresponds to the lower pans of Tiphareth/Thagirion} actual memories from 
unconscious astral journeys will appear But one aspect of this memory appears at the Svadhisthana level. 
Here one starts to dig in the astral bank of memories. This results in one reaching a state similar to deja- 
vu with places, persons, occurrences that one have never previously materially experienced. Sometjmes 
deja-vu is an example of one having experienced something on the astral plane and therefore the familiar 
feeling will arise in a material Situation. 


Astral vision 


To be abJc to sec astral phenomena: while still in the body is called astral vision. Astral vision is one of 
the main techniques when approaching the other side. Through visions of the astral worlds a magician 
can get energy, knowledge and inspiration. One can also establish different forms of communication with 
astral intelligences. The words dairvoyance and astral vision are often used as meaning the same thing. 
Sometimes this is correct. In scrying and in parapsychology clairvoyance means seeing astral energies. But 
in a deeper sense these two words are not synonymous. Astral vision is the ability to see dreams, visions 
and fantasies,. One can also see energy fields and patterns that are binding people and things together. 
Astral bodies and ghosts are things that are seen with the astral vision. This seeing corresponds to the 
second plane according to the Qabalistic-diaconian map. Above this plane we can find the sunsphere- 


mental plane and the starsphere'-dhdne plane. Clear seeing or clairvoyance in the dracom-in context is 
reached first on the highest plane when the third eye is opened and all illusions are annihilated. This is 
the real clairvoyance, s.nd the actual meaning of the word dragon ("to see"). To be able to reach this level 
the magician must Jearn astral vision. 

Demons, angels and others one mightencounteron the astral plane 

One of the most common questions that magical students ask about astral magic is how one should react 
and behave when confronting the bangs that are said to exist on this level. Many magical students in our 
secularized culture find it very hard to imagine a meeting with angels and demons, A more modern 
student with a scientific approach might find a meeting with clfs and ghosts totally absurd. This 
scepticism reveals a total rnisunders landing of the astral plane and of the methods by which the draconian 
rnagicial works with this plane. The astral plane is the level of conceptions and perceptions. Here the 
magician will encounter conceptions that are characteristic of both him /hcr ? society an d the whole world. 

^^^^_ ■ 

The magician first will pass thro ugh a level where the subjective conceptions are confronted, A secularized 
student might here encounter his/her boss or the tax collector ins read of the devil. But soon the magician 
will enter the collective conceptions and will here meet archetypes (often similar to the ones mentioned 
by CG Jung) and existential-religious themes such as God and angels or demons. Through conjuring 
these forces the magician moves them from the unconscious into the conscious. Demon conjurations, 
that is one kind astral magic, is an ancient method to externalize unconscious personified forces. The 
question if all these demons, spirits and tax collectors arc existing for real is left unanswered. Some are 
viewing them as as products of the mind, others believe that they are objectively existing entities, Both 
views might be true. Whatever the case, these forces must be confronted by the magician if he/she is not 
to be controlled by these very powerful forces.

Five elementarvdraconjan principles 


All is one. Ourobocros or the dragon that bites its tail shows the eternal return and that the beginning 
is the end and the end is the beginning, in the small is the great and in the great is the small, the one is 
the all and in the all is the one. That which is above is like that which is below 


All is force.The universe is force in different forms. Force is movement. The force reveals itself through 
the seven rays or levels of vibrations which represents the seven colours in the spectrum. The Dragon 
is the force and when the Dragon manifests itself with seven heads they are representing the seven rays. 

All is passible. All boundaries and limitations are illusions, Only the visions and force of man creates 
limits. To fellow one true will is the only law. Man can become a creator of himself. 


All is floating, Reality is constantly changing. Order is illusion. Through movement and action man 
achieves the life and force to create his life. Stagnation leads to ruin. To rest in the arms of the Dragon 
is to follow die stream o f force. 

Everything exists. Nothing exists, Reality is a question of energy and percepnon. Nihilism is an 
expression that reveals lack of energy. Meaning exists if energy exists. Everything can be true and become 
true through a focusing of the right vision though the right force and right action to the right goal. 


Esoteric comments to the threebasic concepts of dr a coin an manic 

1. Vision: The word dragon comes from a Greek verb which means "to see". The word can also mean 
"to flash", Draconian magic is me magic of clear seeing. Most people are living in a glass globe which is 
misted over by them selves. Through the mist they can only see the outlines of the world outside, The mist 
reflects the image of themselves and they are intcrpre ting the world outside through their own reflection. 
They are caught in "a bubble of self contemplation**. Man receives information about the other side only 
after having filtered it through the self. When we are reaching intelkctu al knowledge it is filtered through 
a number of categories that are creating our understanding. The three main categories mat we are 
understanding the world through are time, space and causality (cause and effect). The categories are 
creating our universe The picture mat we are receiving through the intellect and the categories is what 
we are calling cosmos, order and the side of light The ideal state of perfect logical and intellectual 
understanding in the categoric system is what in mysticism and religion have been attributed to the world 
of the gods. The wodd outside the glass globe is what is called chaos and the unknown. It is "the dark 
side". It is also "the other side" or "the other" in relation to man who inside the glass gjobe is the starting 
point for his own understanding "the one", "the only one" or "the first". These are terms that usually are 
assigned to God. God or the gods are ideal images of oneself as one would like to see oneself and how 
one would like reality to be„ in he mirror image. The other or the dark is the unknown outside. On this 
man are projecting fear for what is outside himself. The draconian path of dear seeing is by cleaning die 
globe from the mist so that the world outside is appearing clear and in its wholeness. The draconian path 
also makes transcendence outside the glass globe possible. The vision of the world outside is the drakon- 
principle :"to see". 

2.Force. The vision of the world/worlds brings knowledge. Knowledge is force. Every dosed system 
ch the world inside the globe is) have a limited amount of energy The energy and the ability of 
perception are connected. This is why the draconian paths (Kundaiini-yoga, Odinistic initiation? 
Typhonian alchemy etc) are focusing the inner energy to heightened perception to reach clear seeing,, 
which will bring the possibility to get energy from the outside. This inner force is called "the inner dragon" 
and the outer force is called "the outer dragon". Everything is force and energy in different and on 
different levels o f vibr atio n, Th c world in side the glob e is a stabilized system of ene tgy in fixed form. The 
fixed energy is not accessible for man, Inside the fixed form is a core of pure free and moving force like 
the lava in the centre of the earth. This Is the force that the magician is using and focusing to open a crack 
in the globe so that the world outside is accessible. In the world outside an infinite amount of force is 
now accessible for the magician. The magician uses the inner force to attain a vision of the outer force. 
This vision creates a charge of the inner force which increases the ability to see and access the outer force. 
It demands great force to see and to see gives great force. 


3 + Action. The third principle in the trinity of draconian magic is the necessary consequence and result 
of vision and force: action. Magic is the arc and science to make actions, outer and inner, that makes reality 
of a vision. If the vision- seeking and heightened force of the magician is not used in concrete actions the 
magician will become burned out. Action is the necessary channel for the force that the magician is 
attaining through the vision of "the other side" Action is the expression of magic Through the force of 
the actions the magician can make his visions real 



With the arrival of modern science traditional religions have become out of dace, A decreasing amount 
of people are feeling that the church can answer the big questions. But science is also lacking the possibility 
to present any real answers. This could explain why occultism have spread in the cracks of industrialism 
and the post-industrial society. Occultism gives us the possibility to seek the answers to the mysteries of 
life ourselves. For man)' people it seems to be enough just to study the surface of occultism through 
popular literature and magazines. But others are diving deep into the hidden worlds to see what truths 
that are hidden there. These worlds and the methods to reach them is what the next three chapters will 
be concerned with. We shall see how one can open the gates of magic 

Research has revealed thatmore than ever)' tenth person have experienced that they have left their 
physical body and found themselves in an invisible body without the limitations of the physical body. 
This experience has mostly occurred in states of sleep, half-sleep or physical exhaustion. Most people will 
keep this experiences for themselves in fear of being viewed as mentally confused oe liars. In a society 
where the concept of the soul has been left behind this is one qf the big taboos. In other societies t for 
example among nature tribes, these experiences arc seen as natural and are openly discussed. 

During surgery, near death experiences or under other extreme circumstances people have had 
experiences of rising out of the physical body and travelling with the soul. Often they have fdt that they 
have been on the shore to another world and sometimes they have travelled into it Often people have 
experienced a long misty and shimmering tunnel. In the end of the tunnel they have seen a bright light. 
In many cases they have seen a figure standing there with open a cms. These experiences are described in 
similar ways by people in different cultures in different times* 

Occultists and magicians have systematically worked to control the ability to travel with the soul 


out of the physical body. They have believed that through this they can reach wisdom and knowledge that 
otherwise would be unreachable. They have also described meetings with entities from other dimensions 
in worlds on the other side These worlds are called astral worlds and the invisible body astral body. The 
word astral comes from the word "astnTlis" (latin), which means star and already during neo-platonism 
denoted the world between the material and the divine. This is the world of the soul where it goes when 
it is released from the physical body, something that occurs temporary during sleep and finally at death. 
People who have entered the astral worlds have often tried to remember and map their experiences 
in different ways. Tins is the way that magical systems like the Qabalah, Enochian magic and shamanism 
have been created. The witches journey to places like Brocken are believed by many occultists to be 

descriptions by astral journeys, 

The astral worlds are described as different levels. When one first enters out of the body one can 
stay in in this world. One moves around like a spirit and can enter through walls and closed doors. There 
are numerous stones about witches and magicians thai have indulged in astral espionage, often like an 
astral peeping Tom. After a while most people will enter higher levels and srudy them. In the lower levels 
of the astral plane one can encounter ghosts and newly deceased people. Ghosts are believed to be astral 
bodies of deceased people who have for some reason stayed on a level Some will meet seductive spirits 
on their astral journeys and will have great experiences of astral sex. Others will be haunted by fearsome 
demons. Many have described astral landscapes and cities. Sometimes astral travellers have journey 
through surrealistic worlds that can be compared to the art of Dali or Bosch, On the parts of the astral 
plane that includes the material .world the elfs, fairies and other mythological creatures from the forests 
can be fo unc. In the high er a s tral wo rid s one will c onfron t god s, godde s ses and m ore archetypical d cities. 



Descriptions of astr al journeys 

Wc have all heard about people who have entered other worlds. In fairy talcs and fantasy literature one 
can read about colourful worlds fall of legends, Childrens books about people entering the world of 
Narnia through a wardrobe. Religions speak with respect about how the founders of the religion found 
truth by gazing into an other world. Most people in out culture believes that this is pure fantasy or only 
possible for a limited group But magicians and occultists today mean that everybody can experience the 
astral worlds and they have created systems to open the gates to the other worlds. 

In the industrial society of the western world the concept of the soul was left behind. Instead of 
the ancient view of man having a soul, a more mechanic view of man grew stronger. Man became 
machine. This view of man Ikes on in our society People who are having spiritual experiences are looked 
upon with suspicion. Some are believed to lie while others are locked in asylums and given medication. 
In other cultures especially among the nature tribes where the belief in the soul lives on they have a 
completely different approach. There it is a problem if someone does not have spiritual experiences, 
visions or memories of other worlds. 

Michael Harner who is a professor in social anthropology and a practising shaman have carefully 
studied, both in theory and practise the phenomena of entering other worlds. He was initiated in the 
shamanic mysteries among the Jivaro people and the Conibos in South America and among North 
American natives. He describes his experiences and discoveries in the book The Way of The Shaman. 
His first real out of the body experience he had in an Coniho indian village Tornas an elder man of the 
Indian tribe tells Harner that if he wanted to have any real knowledge about the shamanic wisdom of the 
Conibos he had to cat the "soul- liana". This is a liana that are cooked to amixture called Yage or Ayahuasca 
and is an extremely powerful hallucinogen that it among the natives goes by the name of "the little death". 
H arncr cxperi enced numerou s powerful vi si ons o f o ther worlds, gods an d demon s . 

These visions would change Harriers life and after this journey he dedicated his life to shamanic 
journeys to other worlds. Instead of using Ayahuasca or other hallucinogens he is today using a monotone 
drumrhythm to reach trance In The Way of The Shaman he also describes the experiences of his disciples 
when they with the help of the drum are travelling through crystal tunnels into other worlds. 

Another westerner that also was initiated into the methods of the American natives is Carlos 
Castaneda. He is just like Harner a social anthropologist and went to Mexico in the sixties to study 
medical plants. He met the indian magician Don Juan Matus who more or less tricked Castaneda to the 
shamanic path. The descriptions of Castanedas expenences are collected in a series of books thathave 
sold millions of copies around the wotld. Carlos Castaneda learned how to enter the other worlds with 
the help of hallucinogens like Peyotc, Psilocybin and Datura. This made his hooks extremely popular 
among hippies in the late sixties since they used all kinds of drugs to expand consciousness. For Castaneda 
the consuming of hallucinogens was something involuntary that his indian teacher almost forced him 
to do. A more sober description of leaving the body can be found in the books by Robert Monroe 


Ke V5 to the other side 


Experiences of leaving the body are as common as ic is uncommon to discuss them. This shows that it 
is not actually supernatural at all, but something that wiB be quite common and natural in a future society. 
People who can control theit out of the body journeys mean that this js something that everybody can 
learn. One of the oldest techniques to release the soul is the drum journey. Through listening or dancing 
to a monotonous beat consciousness and the brain waves enters a trance like state that enables astral 
journeys. During pagan times and among the nature tribes drum rites have always been the most 
important way to contact the spirit world. Today drum ceremonies and ecstanc dance rites to contact 
ancestors and to enter other states of consciousness are common on Haiti. On modern rave patties the 
participants have described how they during the dance have travelled out of themselves. Hypnosis has 
been used as a way to Jeavc the body under controlled circumstances. Many forms of hypnosis ate 
working in a similar way to monotonous rhythm. By exposing the brain to repeated impressions 
consciousness will enter a hypnotic state Twinkling lights, pendulums that moves in circles or pulsating 
sounds are often used. The hypnotist will the guide the person out of the body. Self hypnosis is a more 
difficult but as effective way to teach out of the body experiences. This means that one will guide oneself 
out of the body the same way ahypnousc would but one will do the guiding oneself and must keep control. 
Meditation on a deeper level works like hypnosis and is the most common way to leave the body To 
meditate watching a burning candle, repeating a mantra or formula can induce trance states. In many 
cultures hallucinogen drugs have been used to contact the other wodds. Among shamans in Siberia the 
Amarita Muscat* mushroom have been used. In South and Middle America the psilocy bin mushrooms, 
the Yage liana mixture, the Peyote and San Pedro cactus and the Datura pknthavc been used by shamans 
to teach the other side. The Datura was used among the witches in Europe on the journey to Brocken. 
Among dervishes and Arabic sufis, hasch have been used to gain visions and astral journeys. In modern 
times synthencal substances like LSD, DMT and MDMA have been used to experience other wodds. 
Though magicians and occultists have often believed that drugs is a way to dangerous and uncettain way 
to reach the astral plane. Astral journeys migfit seem abstract to those who have not had the expenencc, 
But for the ones who have had the experience itis something very natural. In the £kst phase it is common 
that one goes through different doubts concealing oneself and the reality of the experience But after a 
while when one have had more astral experience this phase will usually end. These experiences will open 
up in finite worlds and possibilities for the magician, Everybody who have learned to travel out of the body 
have described this as something worth striving for. The fear of death have almost disappeared among 
them who alreadyin life have travelled out of the body La the future this ability to travel to thcastral plane 
might not be seen as anything supernatural at all.

Freud,. Jung and their colleagues viewed the psyche as a dynamic system, a constantly changing flexible 
setting of inner connections, which is greater than the sum of the separate parts. Here follows a short 
description of the psychological model of Jung and the most common concepts one might encounter 
while reading his wntings. 

Thc libido 

Freud borrowed the term libido from latin to denote the "fuel" behind the psychical system, He believed 
that the libido was a primal energy and used the term to denote the sexual energy in particular. Jung on 
the other hand thought that it was too narrow to let the term denote only the sexual energy. In his view 
the libido was psychic energy, the intensity that exists in the psyche. The libido was something that could 
be defined through its consequences, forexample the awareness that one directs outwards orinwards, the 
magnetism between people and the ability to get things done. 

The Symbols 

According to Jung the symbol has a transcendental function. It is an attempt to apptoach something that 
is impossible to express as a whole, therefore pictures and especially words are definitions that are less 
precise than their original significance. The higher up in consciousness a symbol is, the more 
individualized it is. And the more individualized it is the more distant it is from its ongin. 

The symbolic language is according to Jung necessary for the psychic health of man and her ability 
to progress, because that the transcendental can be projected in the symbol and thus be expressed. The 
symbol can transform the libido to higher expressions, (compare with the rising of the kundalini through 
the chakras and its transcendence from primal life force] . 

The collective uneon scion s and ita archetypes 
Jung worked mostly with the study of panents that were psychotic, for example those who suffered horn 


schizophrenia while Freud studied neurotic and hysterical cases), Jung found among his patients many 
different conceptions of a religious and mythological character which could be traced to different times 
and places all over the world. He believed that they could impossibly have encountered these symbols 
through any outer source. Instead to explain the occurrence of the symbols in dreams and fantasies he 
invented the term the collective unconscious. 

He supposed that there existed a collective unconscious level where all experiences "since the first 
days of man** could be found. But this collective unconscious has not only got a storing function, it also 
contains a creative element, here the primal pictures of our conceptions can be founds they constitute the 
shape or the frames through which the divine are experienced. These collective building bricks are what 
Jung calls the archetypes. The archetypes arc not fixed pictures or inherited ideas. Jung views them as 
given characterizing forms of fantasy; the primal forms through which we arccxpenencing the world and 
as such they arc moving and creating. They are expressed in everything that man dreams or thinks or feds. 


i mil ■ 


Just like the eye can not watch itself we can never really describe the archetypes, Jung describes the meeting 
with an archetype in a dream as being unfathomable, imposing and divine. 

Figurately speaking Jungs view on the psyche of man could be likened to a gigantic iceberg where the 
conscious is the little part that is above the water. The outer layer of this he calls the persona. The word 
comes from Greek and means "mwk", that is the face that we axe revealing outwards. The persona is an 
important part of our conscious personality, which strives to keep the Self and its integrity intacc It can 
be dangerous when this mask is believed to be the "actual personality", which leads to that the person 
behind is locked in and can not progress or be conscious. 

The centre of consciousness, the centre of the visible part of thciceberg, is the Self. Just below the 
surfaceis the personal unconscious, which contains accessible and more hidden psychological complexes. 
This part of the unconscious contains what Jung calls the shadow, a double that carries the parts of 
personality that we have repressed. Here we can also find the anima/ animus, which represents the male 
in the female psyche and the female in the male. Below the personal unconscious we can find what Jung 
called the collective unconscious. There is no obvious limit between the personal unconscious and the 
collective unconscious, both the shadow and the anima/animus aspects have roots down in the collective 


Id the collective unconscious onecan confront the archetypical picture sphere, Hereis the mythical 

pictures of the archetypes that have revealed themselves indifferent figures with different riames through 
all times, Athena, Venus, Kak and Isis are examples of these. Behind/under this sphere we can find the 
sphere of archetypical symbols which includes die god-child, the god- father and the great mother. Then 
we will reach the sphere of the rnathemaucal and geometrical figures. Here we can find stylized symbols 
"engrams", of which the mandala (the magical circle) and the connected quarternity (the number four, 
the square and the cross) are the most common. 

The quarternity is according to Jung the logical condition for an overall judgement. If you want 
to denote the whole of the horizon you can use the four directions. The four original qualities, four 
elements, four colours, four casts in India, four paths of the spiritual progression in Buddhism etc The 
circle represents the perfect completeness, while the number four is its natural minimal division. 

A fburfoldness is often divided into3+l so that on of thcunks are holding an exceptional position 
and is divergent, like the earth- air-water elements in relation to fire. Jung means that if the fourth 
greatness joins the other three, the "one" will arise, which denotes the unity. The number of archetypes 
could be infinite, but to make it easier to describe the recurrent expressions they can have Jung divides 
them into different "figures" and concepts, The Shadow, the Hero, the Anima/ Animus, the Old Wise 
Man, the God- Child and the self are some of the archetypes. 


The Sha. 

Just like all light creates darkness somewhere, the conscious light of the self creates a shadow in the 
individual personality The shadow is our own "negative". It is the part of us that carries all guilt and the 
sides of our self that our conscious self have repressed. AH die feelings, weakness and desires that would 
destroy the picture that we have made of our self. 

We arc experiencing the presence of the shadow as a threat It is embarrassing, irritating, frightening 
and is perhaps also creating anxiety. For these reasons, according to Jung, we are working actively to 
repress this part of ourselves, to keep our beloved illusion that we are "perfect**. 



Jung observed how this psychological shadow, when it is repressed still continues to operate behind the 
scene and creates different types of neurotic and compulsive behaviour. He also observed that we instead 
of repressing the shadow also could project it on others, and then believe that they had all those troubling 
and repulsive qualities that we do not want to sec in ourselves. 

In Jungs practise the individuation of a patient (the progression process that according to Jung 


everybody works with) almost always began with a humble accepting of the shadow with the conscious 
I- feeling of the individual. This is the first and mast important step to psychic health according to Jung. 

To become conscious about the shadow takes away its power since this drags out all the hidden 
impulses and fantasies in the light and in the sphere of ethical choice. One is then confronted with the 
difficult ethical decisions and the repulsive self-disciplin that one sometimes have been able to escape 
through neuroses. One must now confront and deal with our true and actual will. Only In the meeting 
with the shadow can we take the total responsibility for ourselves and our actions. 

Jung meant that the shadow is collective because it can be found in ever)' person, but that it often 
is very coloured by culture and the Individual. The close relationship between the shadow and the Self 
makes an integration possible, but it Is impossible to totally understand it since it reaches deep down in 
the collective unconscious, according to Jung like a inevitable effect of the darkness that the light of the 

Self creates. 

There is a conception that one who enters the unconscious reaches the ego centrical sphere which 

is like a dead end. 

It is true, Jung writes, that the one that gazes down at the water first sees his own reflected image 
" This is the first test of courage on the inner path, a test that frightens, most people, tor the meeting with 
oneself is one of the most unpleasant things one can experience, something that one escapes when 
projecting all negative parrs on other people". 

But if one manages to do this a litde part of the task is solved; one has lifted the personal 
unconscious to the level of consciousness. However, the shadow is something that is a living part of our 
per so naii ty also wants to exist. This is a problem that involves the whole of man and one will realize ones 

The meeting with the shadow is according to Jung no dead end, it is a narrow path, but it is the 
beginning of the individuaponprocess where oneis opening oneself for helping powers that are sleeping 
inside the deeper levels of man, in the collective unconscious.

t . 

The hero is the most central and universal figure in the myths and there is some common elements in 
the stories: the divine birth of the hcrcs his entering into the dark/ underworld, his dangerous mission 
and brave fights with monstrous beasts, the presence of helpful companions char can be both male and 
female ot in the form of an animal, One can say that the theme of the heroic myths are defeat, death and 


Jung came to the conclusion that the hero is an archetype in the coHectfve psyche that is often 
shaping the slowly emerging self .image of man. The divine birth of the hero reflects the magical creation 
of our consciousness of "something from nothing*'. The entering of the underworld is a metaphor for 
bringing the unconscious to a conscious level. But Jung believed that it could be dangerous to identify 
oneself too strongly with the hero archetype. He viewed mans struggle for self consciousness as just one 
step in the progression of the collective unconscious. A womans animus often tits into the archetypical 
pattern of the hero that is fighting to get consciousness and energy.

Anima / Animus 

As an echo from the myths, stories and great works of Jiteranirejiing found in his patients dreams a guide, 
a companion for the dreamer that showed itself as a person of the other sex In the myths the "other one 
or the other" leads the hero to the final stage in the end of the tale, 

Jung came to the conclusion that under the conscious masculine side of man also existed an 
unconscious female side wttb its own character and personality. Thisis a female inner aspect of man and 
this shows itself not only in the tact that it has a female character which the man is not conscious of in 
his normal state of mind but also in the fact that this inner side actually assumes the symbolic/orrn of 
a woman in dreams, fantasies and projections. 

Itisexacdythc same for women, in their unco nsdo us they can find a masculine (part personality), 
a side with a character and behaviour that generally would describe a man Jung called the feminine side 
of man the Anima, the latin word forSoul and the masculine side of woman was the Animus. The Anima/ 
Animus functions as an important connection between the Self and the unconscious. He or she invites 
and leads the individual to a deeper understanding of the unconscious world. 

Jung writes about the Anima; "Everything that touches the Anima becomes tabu, magical, 
dangerous and definite. She is the serpent in paradise for the person that is full of good intention. She 
presents persuasive reasons for working with the unconscious, she tells us to break down all moralistic 
inhibitions and release powers that one should have better left in the unconscious. Because she wants life, 
she also wants good and evil- In the part of life where clfs and fames plays their game those categories does 

not exist". 

Jung meant that apart from its chaotic nature the Anima is also carrying sometimes that he defines 
as hidden knowledge or secret wisdom. He writes :"lf she would be only negative, the case would be rather 
easy. But this is not the actual case, for the same Anima can reveal herself as an angel of ligpt, as a 
psychopomp that can lead us to the highest purpose ruin ess, such as demonstrated in Faust. If the shadow 
is the qualifying test the Anima is the masters degree". 

The old wise man 

Knowledge, reflection, insight, wisdom and wit- these are abilities that Jung ascribes the archetypical 
figure that he calls the old wise man. This figure can be both fatherly and hemic but it also has qualities 
that do not relate at all to the father or the hem He is peaceful, secretive and temperate and is expressed 
in a force that comes from the inside and strengthens one in the inner fight- He is resembling a magician 
or a hermit. 


Just like the Hero, the old wise man is not just something that concerns the psychology of men. 
In women he is one side of the Animus, the helpful inner strength and wisdom. He gives advises but he 
is not commanding, he is creating and shaping and makes way for progression. Jung writes: "The 
magician and the old wise man are synonymous and have their origin in the medicine man of the ancient 
tribes. Just like the Anima he is an immortal demonic being, that penetrates the chaotic darkness of die 
purely biological life with the light of purpose. He is the teacher and *Jhe initiating master'* He also writes: 
" If the name "Lucifer' would not been taken it would be a suitable name for this archetype. I wiD now 
instead be satisfied with calling it Toe Old Wise Man or the Archetype of Purpose. Like all other 
' archetypes also this one has got one positive and one negative aspect, something that I will not di 
further here." 



The Divine Child 


"Smaller than tiny and bigger than the greatest" is a good definition on this archetype. When the child 
archetype shows itself in our dreams this is of great importance, it represents potential development and 
at the same time a confrontation with the original,, wholeness and unity. v 

In stories and myths and also in dreams the exposed and abandoned child is common as well as 
its secict miraculous birch. According to Jung this reveals how very hard the cask of the child is, how the 
influences from the surrounding world in different ways are creating enormous obstacles in the way of 
every individuation. 

But the divine in the child also reveals great strength. The dragons and serpents that in the myths 
arc threatening the inner self of man is according to Jung evidence of the danger that the new 
consciousness might be consumed by the unconscioas. 

The deeds of the child are often directed towards the conquering of the darkness and the birth into 
the conscious, Jung writes about the appearance of the child archetype: "Often the child is progressed 
in accordance to Christian models hut even more common is the development of the child from non- 
christian pre -stages like ktonian animals like crocodiles, dragons and snakes, it can also be monkeys. It 
is common that the chtJd reveals it self in the chalice of a flower or comes Out of a golden egg Or is the 
centre of a mandala". 

The Self 
The experience of the archetype of completion, die SeJf, is similar to the religious experience of the 

m * 

presence of a god Jung discovered symbols of .the Self in many of the religious systems of the worid and 
was fascinated by their perfection. The garden of Eden, The golden age of the Olympus, The 
mythological wodd egg from which everything were created, the hcrmapbrodJc original man. 

The Self archetype represents both the wholeness of our being, something larger than theconscious 
self and a L the same time something other than this, that which keeps us progressing. The Self is the cause 
and the goal, it is both an immanent and transcendent archetype. 

Jung believed that the realization of the Self has got two meanings, a complete progression of the 
individual and also experiences of a high value that is outside the individual personality. The most 
common symbol of the Sdf is the mauuSali, the "circle divided in four" that has been used so frequendy 


in eastern medication. .. 

The archetypes that have been discussed here are mainly expressed as figures or beings. But Jung also 

talked about the changing- archetypes. These are different steps ot levels in the individuadon process.

Week 1-2 


Do the kundalini meditation on four different occasions and focus die energy on the Svadhjsthana- 
chakra. which is placed between the navel and the genitals. This ehakra is can be visualized as an orange 
lotus flower with sis petals. Explore all feelings and impulses since they can be eventual memories from 
astral journeys. Try to let the energy flow and make sure that the kundalini is not blocked at this sti 

Practise the astral vision through gazing at the aura around a burning candle. Normally one sees only the 
usual light. But for the experienced the whole colour spectrum of the rainbow can be seen. Practise un 
you are able to see parts of the spectrum around the flame of the candle, 

Go out in the nature and End a power place. A power place is a place that give? you power and 
concentration. Sec how the place affects you* astral vision. The place will give you a feeling of heightened 
awareness, clearer seeing and active calm. Hunters and warriors used places like these when they waited 
for the right time to attack. Because of the power place they could wait for days. 

Week 3-4 

Continue to meditate on the colours around candles. 

Get or construct a Ouija board and start a communication with the other side through this You can also 
use a glass placed. on a paper with the numbers and letters of the alphabet Practise until the movement 
of the glass/object is obvious. When an invisible power js moving the object this is a very distinct feeling 
and there should really be no doubt. It is important not to take the information to seriously since in the 
beginning it will be mostly gibberish or projections of fear or expectations- To use Ouija or other similar 
technique magically is a controversial practise. Many people mean that this is dangerous and only brings 
one in contact with lower astral beings. In Dragon Rouge it is believed to be a useful, but perhaps primitive 
way to contact the other side, One should be able to control this tool of communication but then move 
over to more advanced astral techniques. In Dragon Rouge this is the first step in a series of more and 
more advanced practical astral magic that also includes automatic writing and ism ] eviction.

The third pan of the course is concerned with wicehcrait. Though 
many modern practitioners of wicca and ''white" witches claims the 
opposite, wj is a dark magical rradkion with roots in black astral 


cults where the powers of nature and the sexual force is central. 

Witch craft is connected to the phases of the moon, the lunar powers 
and corresponds to the shadow realm of the astral plane, the Gamaliel Qlipha, This letter will present 
methods to conjure astral erotic partners from Gamaliel- an operation that is important in witchcraft. 

In the ancient Jewish mysticism, Gamaliel is the name of the sphere of "the evil per vers ionf. Gamaliel 
means "the obscene" and represents the sides of existence that was feared die most among the Jewish 
priests: the sexual force. The type of sexuality that belongs to this sphere is not connected to reproduction, 
it is sexuality for pleasure and experience. During almost all times this kind of sexuality have been viewed 
as something evil since it is nor serving any purpose of society. When society condemned this kind of 
sexuality the lust of the individual became something to repress and fight. What used to be untainted lust 
was here transformed into something dangerous and sick, or as Fnedrich Nietzsche wrote about the 
moralising and condemning of sexuality from Christianity: "Christianity gave Eros poison to drink; -He 
did not die thereof, but his face turned, from lust to vice", 

Gamaliel is something that every magician must study. Here one can find all repressed lusts and 
instincts, or the cause for all condemned lusts* In Gamaliel the magician remembers moments and doings 
that have led to the birth of a desire and what led to the fading away of another desire. Here the magician 
can understand the structure of the instincts and desires and can through this become clear enough to 
awake to his true will. This is the goal of sexual mysticism: to penetrate ones own sexuality to understand 
it and then use it for both pleasure and to progress. To find ones sexual it}' in its most original form is to 
find the Dragon The Dragon is the archetype chit represents the pure lusts and desires and the perfected 
personal power, s - 

lt is mainly through the dreams that the magician works with Gamaliel- A magician can study and 
live out his sexual desires through conjuring astral partners in dreams. This is done by entering dreams 
through meditation. Before this the magician should not have slept for two or three days and should not 
have had sex tor two or three weeks This makes the contact easier when working with powers from 
Gamaliel, During the meditation the magician should concentrate on the desires that he wants to 
experience. At a later stage of the meditation dream pictures will arise, these should be activated and 
energized by the magician. The pictures should become more and more alive and this will arise the 
k uncial in i in the magician which energizes the dream and so on. h can be quite difficult to succeed with 
this operation but it is worth the reward. A total experience of Gam aliel is always one of the most fantastic 
i the life of a magician and also one of die most important on the magical path.

Witchcraft has its origin in the pre-Christian pagan religions, k can be seen as a magical form of belief 
or world view and can be found all over the world. It is basically identical with other original magical 
religions like Voodoo and shamanism. The basic conception of existence is chat evcrythingis connected 
It is a holistic world view where everything is connected through a net of energies that the initiated witch 
or magician can influence. The sun, the moon, the planets, the stars, earth and iti animals and plants ate 
influencing each odicr and life itself: Through knowledge about these a witch and the magician can 
control life and all that it contains. Moon magic, astrology, herbal magic and others have grown from this 
knowledge. The knowledge of the witches were mostly based on personal experiences and intuition. This 
is why the system of one witch/ magician can be quite different from the system of another witch/ 
magician. This is also why witchcraft falls outside the hmits of common science. 

During pagan times many forms of religion existed. Roughly one might divide them in two main 
forms. In old none religion there were the asatru and Odinism but also the religion of the vanes and sejd. 
The first two was mainly practised by rulers, warriors and priests. They gathered in berserker tribes and 

r guilds. The second religion was common among peasants. In the first one the gods are mainly 
ruler and warrior gpds In the second the gods are prosperity and fertility gods, In the First we can find 
sky-gods, but in thesecond mainly eartlvgods and goddesses. These types of religion complemented each 
other and there were no exact boundaries between the two. Sometimes the asatru is said to be a more male 
dominated religion and the religion of the vanes more feminine. This is not incorrect but quite a 
simplified explanation. In both forms of religion both gods and goddesses can be found. Witchcraft has 
its took in the pagan fertility cults. Through rites and magic they tried to influence life-sowing and 
reaping, sexuality, fertility, and giving birth. The witch cuii was a cult offcrxiliry were the the powers of 
nature and the universe were invoked. They worshipped the god and the goddess as being present 
everywhere in nature, the universe and in man. In the centre of the cult they worshipped Frej and Freja. 
They were worshipped for their divine flesh and was often picture as nude figures with exaggerated erotic 
forms (the goddess with huge breasts like the Venus from Wiiendorf and the god wkh a gigantic erected 
penis like the old bronze statue of Frej) and often in sexual positions. Sexuality as the foundation of life 
was also the foundation of witchcraft. Witchcraft and the witch cult is therefore based on sex-magic 

The modern European witchcraft has its roots in the Pan and Dionysus worshipping bachants and 
the Hecate adepts in Greece and alio among the cults of Ncrthus, Frej and Freja-vitkis (compare the word 
witch with vitkis which means a wise person) in the norse, Germanic and Celtic areas. Lt Is a cult of nature 
where one retires from the regulations and bonds of mundane life and society and returns to an original 
state to find hidden powers. Therefore the cult has often included naked practise (skyclad) . Animals have 



been worshipped as symbols of the original, the instincts and sexuality. Taboo -breaking ritual act* have 
been included. During the backanals (the Roman version was called. Sacurnals) they worshipped the 
horned god and mother earth, Goats, bulls and decrs were also worshipped. They went our to secrerpower 

places in the forest or into secret caves or catacombs;. They intoxicated themselves with alcohol and 
hallucinogenic plants. Thegod and the goddess were celebrated through sexual rites and orgies. Also the 
cult of Frej and Freja had orgiastic practises. Poems and chants of the Freja cult axe filled with playful 
erotic and eroto magical information that would later upset the Christian priests, The cult of Frej and 
Freja were even more repressed and destroyed than the cult of Odin. 

Christianity that erased the feminine element in nature and interpreted everything feminine as the 
Devil would persecute the witch cult more than the other pagan forms of religion „ The witch cult placed 
the goddess in focus and many leaders and practitioners of the cult were females. The church would start 
a blood srained campaign that would mainly fall upon women. We all know what kind of interrogation 
methods they used, for example the water test were a woman was thrown in the water. If she drowned 
she was innocent. Irshe kept floating that was proof of her being a witch and she was burned at the stoke. 
Torture was common to force confessions. The fact chat the Bible encourages the killing of witches gave 
the priests a religious authorization to their persecutions. Many thousands of women would feel the 
Christian message of love as they were burned alive at the stake. 

A witchcra ft renaissance 

During the 19:th and early 20:ch century the interest for witchcraft started to grow again in a new and 
modernised form. Aradia-the gospel of the witches was published in 1899 and was to become one of the 
most influential books for the renaissance of witchcraft, lc was written by Charles G Leland and based 
on his ten year friendship with an kalian witch, It presents the teachings of witchcraft in a way that was 
unique for the late I9:ch century. Unique was also the books by Dt Margaret Murray, "The with cult 
in Europe" and the "God of the witches" that were published between 1920-30. She believed that the 
witch cult was aeon tra-religi on to Christianity and that it had roots in the pagan Goddess cult. She meant 
that the witch cult had its own hierarchy, sacred days and ceremonies and thus were an actual religion. 
She also claimed thai certain European kings had secretly been members of witch covens. The most 
famous representative of die modern witch cult is Gerald Gardner who published the books: Witchcraft 
Today and The Meaning of Witchcraft in the fifties. He claimed that the witch cult was still alive and 
he described its practises. 

The witch cults and the neo-pagan movements are growing fast. Some are feministic and political 
others are hierarchic and d ids tic. Some are working with a mo re individual magic while others are mainly 
conducting religious ceremonies. Some are very orgiastic with sex and/or drugs while others are more 
puritan and health oriented. Many of the so called wicca groups are not even magical but religious. Some 
groups of witchcraft are connected to satanism but more common is a connection to shamanism and the 
green wave movement. There is an eroto-inagicaJ symbolism in the witch cult that connects it to the 
Indian Tantras. Just like the Tantra and in the left hand path magic the focus is on the Goddess. She 
represents the gateway to the dimensions of magic. She is mother earth and through her womb life 1$ bom 
and dies. She is the gate and the goddess of the underworld and a magician follows her down to be 
initiated. She is the realm of the dead and the mother of all life. In this role she is the dark goddess and 
terrifying in aii her power. In the witch goddess and also in the witch god the principles of the 



unite, Eros andThanatos - the principle of lifeteuality and die principle of death. In some witch groups 
(covens) this is illustrated in sadomasochistic rites where pleasure and pain becomes one. Here is an 
example of a classical witch initiation that is used by many witch groups; The candidate is undressed, the 
hands are tied behind the back and the eyes are blindfolded. The candidate is led into the witch circle. 
Around the circle the group of witches are standing. In the middle of the circle stands the high priestess/ 
priest. She/he gives the candidate the fivefold kiss on the feet, knees, sex, breast and mouth. Then the 
candidate receives 40 lashes of the whip. The aspirant reads the witch oath and pledges allegiance and 
to be silent. The aspirant then receives the magical tools; the athamed agger, wand and emblem of the 
coven etc. The aspirant is asked if she/he is ready to "suffer and be purified to learn". If the answer is yes 
the aspirant receives another 40 lashes of the whip. Thereafter the high priestess/priest also receives lashes 
of the whip. Finally the high priestess/priest are having sex with the aspirant. 

In many witch groups the initiation is practised in a more erotomagical Form. The aspirant drinks 
from the chalice that symbolizes the womb of the goddess and receives the wand that is the phallic god. 
A symbolic sexual act il conducted when the wand is put into the chalice to fertilize it with the will of 
the aspirant. Some covens with a more traditional medieval anti-Christian view reads the Lords prayer 
backwards during rhe initiation. Sometimes a Bible is burned. In most groups the Christian elements are 
missing and old pagan gods are worshipped Many are not even invoking gods/goddesses with traditional 
mythological names bur calls them the Sun father and the Moon mother etc. 


Pan becumes the Devil 


The terms witch and witchcraft is used and misused in all kinds of situations where they do not 
belong. Some people have a tendency to call everything that seems weird or they do not understand 
witchcraft. Many arc calling themselves witches though chey lack any real contact with the forces that 

the original witches worked with. 

Witchcraft is as old as mankind itself It is a special part of the religious experience of man Unlike 
the established and dogmatic religions it has represented the contact with spiritual forces that are based 
on practical experience. Because witchcraft has always existed outside the established religion it has often 
been accused of being perverted, evil and dangerous for society. In ancient civilizations like Egypt and 
Babylon witchcraft was accepted as a subsection of the official cult. What we arc today calling witchcraft 
was in these cultures also the practise of the feminine side of religion. This was connected to the ktoman 
forces of the earth and the underworld. The ancient witch cults were connected to the instincts, earth 
and the physical while the male cult, that was often dedicated to a sky-god, was abstract and based on 
religious-political dogmas. When the Jewish Jahve cult grew the witch hunts became more common. In 
the cult of jahve all feminine and ktonic elements had been removed. Left was only the one heavenly 
rather of the state. All cults and cultic acts that were not dedicated to this heavenly lather was evil Murder 
was encouraged, like in the second book of Moses 22:18 w You shall not suffer a witch to live". The ktonic 
powers were believed to be only dark and evil and the heavenly is the only good. Only when the important 
balance was forgotten and the focus was only on the heavenly did the dark become evil, What was 
introduced by thejahve cult became really grotesque in the hands of Christianity. When it expanded and 
needed to gain more power a scapegoat was needed, so that Christianity could truly appear as the advocate 
of good All old ktonic deities became devils and demons, chc old Greek god of the forest and fertility 
Pan who appeared with horns and cloves was identified with Satan himself. In this manner all pagan earth 
religions was turned into Devil-cults. If one loob behind the surface of what is described in the old 
grimoires one will find ancient gods. Through the grimoires and the dark cults the ancient wisdom was 



carried into our days, Now man can absorb and practise chij wisdom without die threat of bem^ burned 
at the stake or in hell. Modem society needs to establish the balance between dark and light that has been 
Jost for thousands of years. 

The powers of light represents order, structure and dogmas. The dark represents nature and the 
wild, intuition and freedom. Society has suffocated in the Jaws and principles of the light. This can be 
likened to a house that is build in a forest. The forest is the dark, wild and unknown. The hpuse is the 
light, order and the structured. The house became a village. The village became a city. Finally the city 
became a large over dimensioned metropoJ of Jight and structure. It had eaten great parts of the dark and 
wild forest and was planning to eat more. The forest became something unknown, difficult to reach. 
strange and frightening. The wild of the forest started to reestablish itself in the middle of the city. The 
order of the city was eaten from the inside Soon chaos ruled the city. People were forced out in the forest 
that had been something strange and dangerous. 

This is what has happened to man on the meniaj and materia] plane. Man is imprisoned in the 
structures of the light, but must finally escape to avoid suffocation, Man needs to return to the knowledge 
and wisdom of witchcraft. More and more people arc beginning to realize chat the real knowledge about 
existence musr be found in different places than what was earlier believed. Nature itself is the main 
teacher. Many have already realized this. Unfortunately many of those who have realized this have learned 
nothing from it. They continue to step in the old footsteps of the Jahve cult, Christianity and Islam and 
other patriarchal dogmatic teachmgs. They are calling themselves white witches and other embarrassing 
titles only to please die lords of the religions that have continuously tried to kill them. They continue to 
think in the ethical and law-bound ways of the traditional religions. They have not achieved the 
important insight that witchcraft belongs to the dark, ktonic and natural side of existence and the dark 
has been viewed as evil only by the antagonists of the witches. 

A witch must leave the old values and find her own and the values of nature. A witch must travel L 
the dark unknown from which she once came and to where the human consciousness must return. 



The powers behind witchcraft may on the surface seem frightening. Man has become so alienated from 
the original and wild in existence that the experience of it at first causes fear , just like many people fear 
dark forests at night though they know that no actual danger exists- When one becomes familiar with 
these dark sides one will instead see their beauty, wisdom and power. 

When entering the path of witchcraft one must confront the dark and unknown. Both the inner 
and the outer sides. The witch must get to know the inner instincts and desires. The most important of 
these is the 1 ifc force which its rooted in the sexuality. It has been limited and controlled by the moral ism 
of the religions of light. The witchcraft and the dark represents freedom and the life force while the 
religions of the light represents death, martyrs and self denial. The conflict between these came to 
extremes during the inquisition when the witches were burned at the stake, accused of sexual immoralities 
of all kinds. 

The ancient witchgods like Pan, Dionysui, Baphomet, Liliih and Anahita represented the origind 
instincts or man. The gods of light represented laws of morality. The witch must free herself from all the 
rules that are controlling the life force in her. This life force is represented by the Dragon and/or the goat 
- two symbols that have synonymous with the Devil. 





The most suitable place for contacting the original sides of both the inner and the outer existence is out 
in the wild nature. In this environment there are no laws or limitations chat man has created to control 
existence. The witch can learn di reedy from nature. This can be done by walking around in the forest 
and with a relaxed gaze and remembering some special objects or places. This can be a stone, a leave or 
some occurrence like a wind etc She can the sit down and meditate on the symbolic meanings of these 
objects, places or occurrences. She does not need to use a symbolic lexicon, it is better to feel with the 
intuition and get a spontaneous idea of the meaning, 

"When practising magic and witchcraft one must constantly pay attention to what goes on around 
oneself. When practising magic very occurrence has got a meaning and it is good to know what it means. 
Though it is important not to draw any premature conclusions. The witch should view all omens and 
visions with a focused and distanced calm. 

An easy way to see an omen is to spin around several times and suddenly stop ar look at the first 
thing one sees. The very first thing one sees is the omen. The fact thai one looked at just that will reveal 
tendencies in the individual personality. These tendencies are determine what kind of situations one will 
end up in. The same goes For other more advanced kinds of divination where one uses clairvoyance, like 
mirror or crystal ball gazing. To achieve clairvoyance is very important for the witch. She might use a 
mirror, a crystal ball or a dark howl filled with water, She sits down in a darkened room and lights a purple 
candle. With an unfocused gaze she looks down into the object of divination. After a while a pale white 
energy mist might appear After a while visions and pictures are projected. At first the images are vague 
and fades away quickly They are still important since this one step towards a more concrete astral seeing. 
A witch who have practised and developed clairvoyance can through this influence and control her 
existence. She might find an enemy in thecrystaJ ball and by dropping blood on the image she wiJJ control 
the situation to her wish. If it is a Jove spell, menstrual blood or semen might be used. 

By paying attention to the surroundings a witch can find all she needs for her magical work to reach 
its goals. If she is iN, she might find certain objects on a walk in the forest. These objects might give her 
the power to fight the disease. The same can be done when healing others. 

What makes a witch a witcht is her natural contact and relation to the dark and original. She 
develops a close friendship with nature and learns how to receive hdp, force and information through 
it. At' first she must of course fight hard to reach this communication with the wild. A good start can be 
to find an animal in the forest and start a mental communication with it. The witch must be conscious 
of the fact that she can not communicate in an intellectual human way. She must communicate with 
feelings and intuition where the words are emotional signals. 

By developing this kind of communication the witch learns how to communicate with beings from 

other spheres. They are also communicating on the intuitional plane beyond words. 

The l»i;rney:o Bracken 

In folklore and myths the stories of the witches journey to or other cult place are common. The 
witches journey to meet the devil during orgiastic rites has actually got a magical significance, It has its 
origin in the pagan cults of Pan and Dionysus in ancient Greece, the Celtic cults of Cernunnos and the 
Egyptian cults of Ba-Neb-Ter more known as the goat of Mendez, later called Bap ho met. Ecstatic dance, 

orgiastic sexuality was practised and alcohol and narcotic herbs were consumed At the peak of the 
experience the participants often experienced a meeting with the deity. The Bracken Journeys is a later 
variation of these cuttic meetings. The witches consumed narcotic herhs like aconite, mandrake root, 



and thorn-apple. Sometimes they mixed the herbs with fat and made the famous witch-ointment. This 
was often smeared on a broom. When the naked witch sat on the broom die narcotic herbs entered the 
blood through die thin skin around the vagina. The effects of the herbs induced virions and astral 
experiences. During diese trance states the witch often experienced meetings with the dark deities. But 
the witch did not need narcotic herbs to reach experiences. The methods to reach them are numerous. 
Ecstatic dance to reach trance states is one method. The witch can also stay awake a couple of days to reach 
extra ordinary experiences. Some witches used the method of spinning around fast for a long time and 
then lie down and let the circular feeling induce visions or out of the body experiences. The witch can 
also use different kinds of self hypnosis to reach a suitable state of mind. One effective method is; to follow 
a pendulum with the eyes. This can of course be tiresome for the eyes but if one continues the results are 
often good. As with all kinds of hypnosis one must expect ii to take some time before the results are 
arriving. The witch can also visualize that she is railing and continue until visions are appearing. When 
the witch in one way or another reaches a higher consciousness she will meet different beings. She should 
search for her guide or totem animal, it can be in the form of a human or an animal. Sometimes it might 
appear as a wind* a flame or a cloud. The witch will feel which one is die totem. During the magical 
progression the witch might meet more spirits. They are usually catted "spiritus familiaris". Of course the 
church saw the spirits as demons. People believed that the witches used the spirits to steal and to cause 
disease and trouble among others. It was also believed thai the spirits was given to the witch when she 
swore loyalty to Satan at the sabbath. What these entities actually ate doing is to help the witch in life. 
They can protect her against negative energies and impulses. They can act as mental support and give 
power in all kinds of situation, The witch can also contact spirits through rituals. In the ancient gri moires 
there is lists of many demons and their seals. There is also many descriptions of complicated rituals to 
contact them. Often there is less complicated ways that a witch can contact a spirit. Lets take the demon 
Astaroth as an example, he can be found in Lemegecon - the lesser keys of Salomon. Astaroth was the 
favourite of the infamous witch La Voisin, If we look under the surface of Astaroth we will fmd the 
Phoenician fertility goddess Astarte. According to Lernege ton Astaroth appears as an angel of great beauty 
riding on a dragon, He gives answers on ail questions and can reveal all secrets. The ritual begins with 
the creation of a circle of protection that the witch draws around herself In front of her she constructs 
a triangle. On each side of the triangle a red candle is burning. No other light is present* With a magical 
wand (with inscriptions written on it] she draws che seal of Astaroth so that it is seen in the triangle She 
conjures die demon with chants. If the seal disappears she draws it again. After a while the seal becomes 
alive and energies are coming from the triangle and the shape of the spirit cakes form. It can take time 
and much practise before one succeeds with a ritual like this. The first times perhaps just the presence 
is felt and information might come from feelings and inner visions. This is also of great value and a 
necessary beginning. In the end of the ritual the witch lets Astaroth return* This is done when the triangle 
is closed, by drawing a sun cross over it. Both before and after the ritual the witch must conduct certain 
purifications. A bach with some cleansing herbs might be suitable before the ritual. It is also suitable to 
put salt in the room for a while and then remove it, salt attracts negative energies. The sun cross, the salt 
and the herbs can be used to exorcise both people and objects.

The rites of the witch 

The witch who has a very close relation ship with nature also finds most of the objects for the rites there. 
Her rites are often quiie simple and she uses things that she has found by intuition. It is not necessary 
that the rituals and magical recipes of one witch is suitable for another. What is ptesentcd here is only 
the foundation, the rest must be created by the witch. One of the most important foundations for the 
magical rites of the witch is the knowledge about the four elements and directions. They correspond in 
the following way: east and air, west and water, south and fire, north and earth. The air represents the 
intellect, communication and knowledge. Fire represents will power, passion and energy. Water 
represents feelings, dreams and intuition. Earth represents rest, fertility and growth. A witch can use herbs 
that corresponds to the elements in her rituals. Air and peppermint, fire and cayenne pepper, water and 
lavender, earth and dove. She can use them as incense m reach the states of mind that the elements 
represents. A basic ritual is to thryw herbs in the wind that blows from the direction of an element. For 
love she visualizes the beloved and throws cayenne in the south wind. If she likes to send a telepathic 
message she can send peppermint in the west wind. Jt is good for a witch to know the meaning of the 
colours. Air and (b tight) yellow, fire and red, water and blue, earth and green and brown. For a money 
ritual a witch can light a green candle and clove incense. She should conduct the ritual in the morning 
because the rising sun corresponds to get something, the setting sun to get rid of something. She should 
hold some coins in the hand and think that they should reproduce and increase her wealth. She then takes 
one of the coins and places in in the earth. A witch must fed what to use and what not to use in rituals. 
She must also feel how she experiences the elements. A good practise is to divide a paper in four sections 
and dedicate one section for each element. Then she should write down what she feels and thinks about 
the elements She should also wrire down the different sides of her personality that she thinks corresponds 
to the different elements. With the help of this list she can later construct ceremonies and magical

Without doubt man is one ofihe most sexually orientated beings on this planet. Sexuality and the practise 
of sex has reached outside the limits of procreation, something that is unusual among most animals. Thus 
it is not so far fetched to claim that the strong and special sexuality of man is the fundamental factor for 
the existence as a human being. Only man is independent from mating seasons. But the fact that a warm 
wind and the energy of the sun can increase the sexual urge is a reminder of out ancient past as an animal 
among others. Similar to the development of man on all levels In general the sexuality is on a middle level 
between the past as an animal and a godlike future. , 

To progress furthet man must develop the sexuality. This achieved through what is commonly called sex 
magic. Basically all magic is sex magic since magic is a conscious use of the psychic power which roots 
are in the instincts, The most basic instinct is sexuality. The other instincts serve only to maintain it. To 
underline this definition we must first enter the most primitive stages of development. All living things 
are dependent on the ability 10 breed. If a man or an animal does not satisfy the other urges; hunger and 
thirst, the individual will probably die. But if the sexual urge is ignored it is a catastrophe for the entire 
race. Man has alteady spread all over the world and guaranteed the survival of the human race. The present 
problem is over population. Thus can man have sex for pleasure and progression which are not rwo 
separate causes for sex. On the contrary they are connected. To enjoy life and living is to become more 
alive. To become more alive is to develop. Sex magic is the path to heightened pleasure and human 

The origin of sexual magic is impossible to decide. It probably was created as soon as man became 
conscious ofsexuality. Questions were asked and a desire to understand drove people to study their sexual 
life and how it influenced existence Sex for pleasure was divided ftorn sex for the cause of breeding, using 
newly created methods like masturbation. Sex fot pleasure probably arose around the time when man 
gained control of fire. Then man was not as bound to the change of seasons as previously and then created 
a sexuality that was free from mating seasons. This was the first time that man defied nature and took 
the first step from animal to human being. Since great parts of our history have disappeared in the 
darkness of time we must lean on myths and legends to find answers on the origin of human sexuality 
and sex magic. Mans defiance against nature is in the Bible described as the eating of the forbidden fruits 
of knowledge. TTie serpent who is one of the foremost symbols for sexuality acts as the tempter. When 
the fust human couple eats from these fr u its they are suddenly aware of their nakedness and sexuality. 
Eve gives birth to her first child after the banishing from the Garden of Eden, Thus we can make the 
assumption that they did not indulge in any physical sex before that. The fruits shall make man like God. 




Here we can see how closely connected sexuality and divinity is, In all the ancient mythologies the gods 
have had an orgiastic sexual life. For example in the ancient Greek myths the gods are living far outside 
all moral laws. But the gods did not want man to livn like them and when Prometheus stole the fire from 
the gods and gave it to man we can assume that he gave the knowledge of sex* The gods felt threatened 
and punished Prometheus. The knowledge about sexuality can make a god of man* The earliest known 
sex magical practises can be found in India and Egypt Also in Babylon and among the Sumcrians similar 
practises were probably common. In India sex and religion has often been closely connected. Most 
famous of these traditions are Tantrisrn. The origin of Tancrism is hard to decide but some believe that 
that it was created when "Kali Yuga'\ the black era started for about 5000 years ago. The place of birth 
is supposed to be Agarthi, the mystical town north-west of India that is believed by many magicians to 
be the place were surviving magicians from Atlantis gathered, Tantrisrn is based on what can be compared 
to Oscar Wildes thesis that the only way to free oneself from a vice is to indulge in it. In Tantrisrn there 
is nothing of the extreme ascetic practises chat are common in other yoga traditions. Through Tantras, 
holy acts the practitioner makes the carnal divine. The desire are fulfilled, buy through special rituals and 
practises. The desires are sublirninated and directed towards the awakening of the kundatiru\ One of the 
most famous rituals is the 5M rite- In this rite one will indulge in such things that are normally believed 
to be negative for spiritual development. One will enter these acts and make the carnal into the divine. 
5M stands for; "mam 5 a" meat, preferably meat of cow ox ox since it is totally forbidden, "matsya", fish, 
"madya" alcohol, "mudra", aphrodisiacs, "maithuna", sexual intercourse. The ceremony begin with a 
meal where the meat, fish and alcohol is consumed together with the aphrodisiac herbs. Then it is 
common to smoke hash to heighten the effect of the ritual. Then the orgiastic maithuna phase begins. 
The basic purpose of the ritual was to break the old values and mental barriers of the practitioner and 
thus awake a spiritual or psychic reaction that would cause the kundalini to arise. The awakening of the 
kundalini, the serpent fire is viewed as something specific for Tantrisrn. It is not. Apart from the practise 
existing in many other systems in the east it also found among the Gnostics. Gnosticism was a synthesis 
of the ideas that flourished during Hellenism. Christianity, Judaism, Persian religion, Greek and Egyptian 
mythology is mixed. Gnosticism was centred around Alexandria. Among the gnostic sect the Ophites 
many spiritual practises that is reminiscent of the Tantdc ceremonies can be found. The Ophites was a 
surviving tradition from the ancient Egyptian snake cult and conducted ceremonies with Jiving snakes 
that together with certain breathing exercises would arise the kundalini. The most notorious Gnostic sect 
was the "Borborians" . The name is an after construction since"borboros"is a Greek name for dirt They 
conducted violent and orgiastic rites in which homosexuality and incest was the rule rather than 
exception. These group sex rituals was a conscious defiance against the moralism that was arising. They 
viewed the Christian God as the "Demiurg", the god of the false world of illusions. To break his moral 
laws was turn oneself into a god. The orgies of the Borborians is similar to the 5M ritual of Tantrisrn. 
Similar to the Tantrics the Borborians viewed the sexual fluids as the water of life. These should not be 
wasted. Hie difference was that the Tantrics learned how to keep the fluids in the body at the point of 
orgasm, the Borborians chose to consume it Anal sex was common among the Borborians and many of 
the Tantrics* The anus was viewed as the seat of the kundalini and through stimulation the kundalini 
could be awakened, This view is also shared by the Alchemists and the ancient Egyptians, There are 
Alchemical wood cuts picturing the ted dragon resting in the area around the anus* In Egypt this dragon 
was called Apcp. Set was one of the forms of Apep and the god of bisexuality. When the Christ like Osiris 
became the favourite god in Egypt the view of Set changed and he became the main evil principle* This 
occurred together with a new moralistic trend. Though mans sexuality is highly devdopt, man is also the 
most inhibited of all living beings. When man became conscious of the sexual self a great confusion 



probably cook control and man was stuck in the studies of this phenomena Rearing that the sexuality 
like fire could be dangerous man chose to let it glow instead of as before, burn. Thcgreat fire was trusted 
in the hands of authorities, for example priests. In many religions priests have consciously used the human 
sexuality, h has been apowerfuJ tool of control, something that leaders and priests of the world were wei] 
aware of. If they trough laws of moral can control the sexuality of an individual they can also control the 
psychologist Wilhelm Reich proclaimed these theories; that man is free only when the sexuality if free 
of inhibitions. But he was eventually incarcerated in a mental asylum. Religions that are proclaiming 
sexual ascetism are often directed towards non-existence. In Hinduism there is many paths. Some are 
trying to reach a state of non-existence, Others are trying to reach divinity themselves. The more 
destructive paths arc often very moralistic and recommends celibacy. The ones who are trying to reach 
divinity are often totally immoral. Again we can see that sex is life. Sex is existence, If mac wants to become 
truly free, if man wants to have enough energy to control life, the sexuality must be explored and the 
energy awakened. It is a difficult path ? but the reward is great. Man must reach the deepest darkest abyss 
of the unconscious to awake the sleeping dragon, awake it and make it fly. The original sexuality of man 
must be found. It must be awakened and with this energy released man can reach divinity and true

unification of the oppositcs and the powcrof the polar forces 
in the illustration of the sexual meeting of man and woman, 
sun and moon. 



The black mass is without doubt the most famous of all sex -magical ceremonies. Through aJJ times it has 
been viewed with both fear and fascination. Thus it has been a frequent subject for all kinds of horror 
movies and books, A great paradox is that the Christian church has been the major contributor to the 
construed on of this Satanic ceremony. During the inquisition the priests created evidence to prove the 
guilt of the hordes of devil. These written texts are full of perversities that witches and magicians were 
believed to indulge in when they met the Devil When area! Satanism arose in the middle ages as aprotcst 
against the god who burned people at the stake, the involved persons based their practises on those 
descriptions that was found in the text of the church. For this reason a, in many ways, brutal and %iulent 
cult was created. The black mass has also got roots in ancient Greece and Egypt, as a degenerated left aver 


from ancient ceremonies. In theprovince of Mcndez in Egypt the goat-god Ba-Neb-Tet was worshipped. 
He represented the sexuality, fertility and ecstasy. The ceremonies that were dedicated to him was often 
wild orgies where people had sex with goats that represented the god. The Satanists was accused for 
indulging in this practise by the Christian texts. Also the Dionysus festivals came to influence the picture 
of the black mass and the sabbath. Dionysus was the homed god of wine that ruled ecstasy, drunkenness 
and sexuality. His shape was that of a bull and the goat, symbols of strength and the sexual instincts. In 
Athens he was known as "he with the black goat skin". In Kinaitha festivals were conducted were the men 
was trying to catch a bull in the horns and lead it to me temple where the priests called upon Dionysus 
to let his spirit enter the bull. The dance was very important in all festivals of Dionysus, To the tones of 
flutes and cymbals the participants danced to reach ecstasy They dressed in goat skins and carried horns. 
Wine and narcodc herbs like Thorn-Apple was consumed. They whipped each other and had sex to the 
honour of the god, They were viewed as crazy by outsiders and when Christianity arrived they were all 
of a sudden Devil worshippers. The Satumals of Rome were similar. Saturnus is the god that has been 
identified as Satan and die Egyptian god Set On these Satumals everything was turned upside down and 
chaos was created. All the rules and laws of everyday was put aside. It was here permitted to act out any 
inner fantasy that was otherwise abnormal or impossible. The slaves were served by the masters and could 
eat and drink what they otherwise would never taste. People honoured Saturnus by dressing up like him, 
Ixi Durostrum a young man was chosen 30 days before the feast and he was clad co look like Saturnus, 
During these 3D days he walked around in the city and was treated like a god. He could indulge in any 
lust and practise anything that pleased him with total right and acceptance from others. But after the 30 
days he was Co cut his own throat at the altar of Saturnus. The few real witches during the middle ages 
was the survivors from die pre-christian religions. They were living in great danger and had to practise 
their religion in secrecy, They were like the cult of Dionysus mosdy women chat worshipped life and 
sexuality in different forms. Thus they were a target for the strictly patriarchal church of the middle ages 
who viewed woman and sexuality as temptations of the Devil, The witch burnings was an attempt by the 
church to eliminate the feared old religions- The witch sabbath and its "pagan" predecessors are 
ceremonies that celebrates life. Ine extremeand and even frightening expressions in these ceremonies has 
served the purpose of leading the participants to the ecstasy of breaking mental limits and inhibitions. 
A common factor in these ceremonies is the breaking of the rules that man normally is ruled by The 
demands of the over-self is left behind and the repressed desires are released. What rules that arc broken 
depends on the tunc and the place of the ceremony. In the medieval Europe it was of course a very 
powerful act to turn a cross upside down and burn bibles. To do the same in the secularized society of 
today would never have the same effect and in a society that was never invaded by Christianity it would 
not have any effect at all. What these ceremonies have in common is to celebrate life and existence in its 


origin, beyond all constructed laws; to be a god beyond terms like good and evil, right and wrong. To 
leave the ruling mora] laws and Limits temporarily is a must if the individuals that are conducting the 
ceremony arc to reach personal freedom and openness to the repressed parts of the self. Thus the 
parcel pant becomes conscious of the whole of his being, Dancing and special herbs have often been used 
to open the gates to the unconscious. The witches meeting with the Devil during the sabbath was a trance- 
like meeting with repressed sexuality The different attributes of the Devil; fire, the serpent and the goat, 
ate ancient symbols of sexuality. The Devi] that the witches met was a personified manifestation of their 
ownmosr forbidden lusts and deepest bur:ed life force. It may appear as if sex magical rituals and orgiastic 
ceremonies were only practised in a distant past or in primitive cultures. This is not the case. Ceremonial 
sex has been practised since the beginning of time and stilJ is. During the last hundred years the 
phenomena has increased. The witch cult has risen again and have more practitioners than ever. Many 
new witch cults have chosen not to include the main part of the sexual practises, though witchcraft is 
actually a celebration of sexuality. The sex magical ceremonies that was conducted by witch groups and 
occult organisations a hundred years ago was often prepared in every detail. New participants had to 
follow the rules and already created patterns that the ceremony was created around. Later sex magical 
rituals have bccndcveJopt to be more free in their structure. The participants arc choosing their roles and 
creates their part of the ceremony. In the old as wcU as in the new rituals the ecstasy is necessary.To break 
rules and limits is also an important part But to do like the medieval witches and burn bibles is not 
necessary in todays society. Today just the fact that one is conducting a ceremony is to slip over the edge, 
since materialism and rationalism s till are dominating A sex magical ritual can be conducted alone. The 
power of the other participants will of course be missing but instead all focus can be on the individual 
sexuality. Private sex magic is also very safe sex. 

Apart from all attributes of ritual the most important things in a sex magical ritual is the following: 
'The breaking of limits". The participant must think that which can not be thought and release all 
repressed fears and desires. "Ecstasy 1 ' is reached through a serious study of that which is otherwise viewed 
as forbidden. This ecstasy can be painful but purifies the individual through the awareness it brings. The 
purification leads to "The awakening of the Life Force" The limit breaking, the ecstasy and the awakening 
of the life farce arc the basic parts of an sex magical ritual. How it is constructed otherwise is depending 
on the magical system the magician is using. Just like the ancient orgiastic festivals the modern feasts arc 
based on the same things as during all times: sex, drunkenness and experience oi freedom and joy The 
difference is that we because of centuries of moralising have forgotten the holiness and the spiritual 
progression of this. The writer W.B. Stab rook who studied the ecstatic rites of the Voodoo writes in his 
book "The Island of Mystery": "If we would mix a little sacrificial blood into our cocktails and spiced 
them with prayers and holy fire, perhaps our nightclubs would become more perfected in an orgiastic 
sense and as holy as tempi es was during the times of Priapus and Aphrodite. 


Practical sex magic 

In sex magic the total orgasm is practised, this is an orgasm that is not limited to the sexual organ hut 
includes the whole body and consciousness. The psychologist Wilhem Reich made a difference between 
the terms orgasm and ordinary ejaculation. The ejaculation is a physical sensation while the orgasm is 
metaphysical. The metaphysical and sex magical orgasm is a state of mind. It is the holy ecstasy that 
mystics during all times have tried to reach- The awakening of the kundaiini is such an experience To 
enter the orgasm in a meditative state can lead to this kind of ecstasy. This is done by carefully 
concentrating on the orgasm and what happens when it arrives. Together with this practise it is suitable 
to work witJh the "lasting orgasm", This is an orgasm that ncverreaches the peak and ends. It can last for 
as long as the magician wishes. Jt can be a bit hard to reach this experience at first but as always dedicated 
practise is recommended. "Auric sex" is a method Lhat almost always leads to a lasting orgasm, and it can 
be practised in pairs, alone or in group. Here only the aura is touched. When practising auric sex it is good 
if one can see the aura but it is not necessary. A good way to practise the astral vision is to hold the hand 
in front of a dark surface and try to see energies move around the hand and the fingers. This is easier if 
the room is lit with only a candle or two. In auric sex it is important to be able to feel the aura. The auric 
energy of the hands shaU touch the *ura around the sex of the partner. To praedse the sensitivity it is 
recommended that the hands are moved in and out from the body and one should try to feel how the 
aura gets thicker closer to the body It can feel a bit electric in the hands and as if the aura is pressing the 
hands out from the body. An orgasm through auric sex will be a very ecstatic experience at will last for 


a long time. 

Lilith was the first wife of Adam according to the Jewish mythology. Unlike Eve she was not created 
from the body of Adam. This led to certain complications. Lilith was created at the same rime as Adam 
and did not want to submit to him. This was evident when they had sex, nobody wanted to lie underneath 
the other. Now God happened to prefer Adam so he threw Lilith out of die garden of Eden. In sex magic 
Lilithic sex plays a special role. This is sex when the man lies under the woman and she stimulates him 
with vaginal movements only. Thus she is in control of the sexual energies. The woman is often on top 
of the man in astral sex. This is something many Christian monks experienced in traumatic dreams when 
the we re raped by mean demon women. Their own fear and guilt was what made the experience so 
terrible. For a magician the succub us/ incubus can be helpers and guides, The most important part of sex 
magic is the practical part Through practise one intensifies the sexuality and turns it into personal power, 
increased life energy. When the life energy has totally awakened a divine state is reached. In such a state 
ail occult abilities that previously have been out of reach is attained. 




Narcotic and hallucinogenic herbs have been used in many occult traditions to gain access to the spirit 
world. In vision seeking traditions like shamanism and witchcraft we can find a great knowledge about 
the effect that different herbs have on man. Another occult system that have got knowledge about herbs 
is Alchemy^ the knowledge about the herbs effect on perception have been explored in a chemiognosical 
science. Some haw wanted to deduce all spirituality to herbs that changes perception and hallucinogenic 
mushrooms' enthusiasts have in these plants found a source of incredible wisdom and skeptics have 
thought that they had evidence that all spirituality can be derived fiom drug tmsts. Others have 
completely dismissed the use of herbs and have pointed out the destructive side effects these herb can 
bring. From a perspective of religious history it seems without any doubt that perception changing plants 
have been used by sages, magicians and priests in almost all cultures. In India die Soma was hailed as giver 
of wisdom and happiness, the Soma was according to some scientists the amanta muscara that was 
probably also used by the Vikings. The Indians explored the other side with Pey ote and San Pedro cactus. 
Sufi mystics used Cannabis and here in northern Europe the psilocybin mushroom was used* If one is 
interested in the effects that these herbs have on man the books by Carlos Castaneda are of great value. 
Also books hy Terreoce McKenna and Timothy Leary can give a interesting perspective, but it must be 
remembered that these two writers are exaggerating certain themes and an influence from the sixties 
hippie philosophy is present. The books by these writers can in any case he valuable documents. The 
books by Aleister Crowley are also of great value since he was a drugromantic thatgotinjured by the drugs 
himself The book Diary of a Drug Fiend is recommended. 

Drugs are usually separated in three categories: 


1. Stimulants: Caffeine, Yohimbe, Damiana, Cocaine, Nicotine, Amphetamine, Ecstasy. 
2.Tranquilliscrs: Alcohol, Valeriana, Opium, Heroin, 

3. Hallucinogens: Psilocybin (mushrooms^ LSD. Mescaline (Peyote cactus), Amarita muscara, 
Cannabis (Hash, Marijuana), Witch herbs (Mandrake, Thorn-Apple, Aconite)* 


This list is of course incomplete but can give a good perspective. There are hundreds of herbs, mushrooms 
and chemicals that can be listed, Generally the two Erst categories are called body or nerve system 
influenc ing d r ugs. T he third catego ry are called p s ych oactive, psychedelic or haUucinogens. In some cases 
the categories arc melting together. Ecstasy is also a hallucinogen and Cannabis is also tianquilli&ing. 
Magicians have almost only used drugs from the third category, the hallucinogens. In some cases 
stimulants have been used in kundalini practises and sex magic Damiana, Yohimbe or ordinary tea arc 
effective in kundalini practise and sex magic, since they arc aphrodisiacs; sexually stimulating. The other 
group with tranquillisers is only destructive for magicians, apart from perhaps a glass of wine. 


That drugs are more important in the shamanistic tradition than in purely magical traditions is because 
magic is an art of will while shamanism is a vision seeking tradition* Drugs are destructive and are often 
having a negaave influence on the will and activity of the magician. Since magic is the art to turn thought 
into action magicians are often negative to the use of drugs. But traditionally many hallucinogens are 
believed to be great sources of magical knowledge. If one reads the books by Casxaneda one realizes that 
for him they were a valuable method of learning to reevaluate old values and gain access to new worlds. 



A magician must have direct experiences of die other side at any cost otherwise he will end up as a pure 

theorist The other side is a great source of energy for the will This is why many magiaans believe that 

psychoactive herbs is a legitimate way to reach a direct empiric knowledge about the astral world, as long 

as it is only a temporary gate opener. After this experience the magician must learn how to achieve this 

The second level of progression in draconian magic Gamaliel 2.0 is associated with witchcraft and the 
astral world. This kvd is also connected to vision seeking and hallucinogenic experiences. This is why 
this subject is treated here. It is important to get a historical grasp of these aspects of this level. Vision 
seekingis done through dream magic operations and the awakening of the kundalini and is not connected 
with any psychoactive herbs- 

The experience of intoxication is an important aspect of the three dark astral levels. Here the magician 
will confront all feelings, thoughts and fantasies. This experience will include both ecstasy and fear The 
intoxication is not in itself connected to any kind of herb, drink or other product, this is a common 
misunderstanding The herb, drug or alcohol is merely a way to reach intoxication, not the source to the 
actual state. The in toxica ted state is inside man and the path goes through a exploration of the inner sides. 
Herbs or alcohol can be used but often magicians will use breathing exercises, drumming, dancing, edge- 
experiences (parachute jumping, fire walking) physical exhaustion or sexual stimulants instead. In the 
book "The birth of a tragedy" Friedrich Nietzsche describes two opposite states of mind in man: the 
Dionysian and the Apollonian, Dionysus and Apollo axe two Greek gods. Dionysus represents 
drunkenness of life, instincts and dark desires that are flowing over man, Apollo represents darky, 
harmony and temperance, Dionysus is the dark Apollo the light. 

Many magicians and Aleister Crowley* more than others have had an elitistic view on drugs. They meant 
that drugs are harmless for people with a will strong and pure. The slave people will become addicted 
because of their inner misery. In Liber AJ jt is written: 'To worship me take wine and strange drugs 
wtwreor 1 will tell my prophet and be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all". In the comments 
to the LibcrAlcrowleysebtistic approach is dc tin ed:" The craving for the se things is caused by the internal 
misery which their use reveal to the slave-soul. If you are really free, you can take cocaine as simply as salt- 
water taffy. There is no better rough test of a soul than its attitude to drugs. If a man is simple, eager and 
fearless he is alright; he will not become a slave. If he is afraid he is already a slave. Let the whole world 
take opium, hashish and the rest; those who are liable to abuse them were bcttcrotT dead", Crowiev was 
eventually addicted to heroin. 

A person with a weak will or a vague perception of the ordinary reality and the magical reality should not 
take any form of drug or psychoactive herb. A magician must be able to control destructive vices such 
as smoking, extensive drinking A magician never becomes enslaved under a vice. A magician constantly 
works for the balance between the Dionysian and the Apollonian; the intoxicated ecstasy with the 
calmness of dariry. In the building of our world the rational Apollonian side is the ruling. To contact the 
otber side a magician must enter down in the dark Dionysian space of ecstasy, though not without the 
lamp of ApoUonian clarity. 


A history of religH one perspective on hallucinogenic experiences 

During the 5ix ties and seventies many scientists expiated the connection between religious experiences 
and hallucinogen drugs. This created a debate around the similarities between LSD and schizophrenia. 
Many came to the conclusion that the LSD state could not be equalled with psychotic experiences. 

In the early sixties many known scientists claimed that psyched dies could induce states similar to 
the religious experiences of the classical mystics. These were not constructed from systematic analysis 


but on sd f experimentati on. 

One of the earlier experiments about the tela don between drugs and mystical experiences was made 
1963 by Walter N Pahnke + He worked with a group of twenty students of theology with similar 
background and with little or no knowledge about the mystical experience. Almost everyone of them was 
interested to enrichen their religious life by an experiment, they were thus positive to the experiment* The 
experiment was made on Good Friday while listening to a two and a half hour long mass in church. Half 
of the group received 30 mg psilocybin and the other half got a placebo that only caused the skin to get 
warm and itch a little- Directly afterwards the group told theit experiences to a tape recorder. The result 
showed a dramatic difference between those who received the psilocybin and those who received the 
placebo. Nine out of ten in the group who got psilocybin could confirm that they had experienced deep 
religious experiences while those who had gotten the placebo had not experienced anything different at 
alL Pahnke came to the conclusion that psilocybin under the right circumstances can induce mental states 
that hardly can be differed from the descriptions in the classical myths. He underlines the importance 
of the opinion, preparation and feelings of the subject, that which is called set and the atmosphere and 
situation, which is called setting. Many different experiments were made and some had a more negative 
result, but all experiments showed the importance of the set and setting. 

Two other scientists, Masters and Houston, answers the question about the autencky of the drug induced 
mystical experiences, they came to the conclusion that only 3% reached an authentic experience of this 


One of the last scientists with a positive attitude towards drug experiments was Walter Houston Clark. 
His book "Chemical ecstasy, psychedelic drugs and religion" was published in 1 969. Clark did not believe 
that the drugs actually caused the mystical experience, but rather released the human possibilities to 
experience the divine. He is of the same opinion as most of the previously mentioned scientists that dance, 
ascetism and meditation can also release thjs possibility. He does not claim that the psychedelic drugs are 
risk free. Longer psychotic states, confusion and sometimes permanent insanity have occurred. But if the 
expenment is led by experienced people the risks and after effects can almost be completely eliminated. 

Someone who denied that psychedelic experiences had anything at all to do with mystical experiences 
was the Catholic professor R C Zachncr, He believed that the mescaline experience had nothing to do 
with any actual religious experiences. If it had, that would threaten the Christian values in morality. To 
show that he knew exactly what he was talking about he swallowed a pill himself and had the impression 
that he was in the "Alice in Wonderland" world. 



Mag-ical FJajitfi 

The vttcbts mtttment 

The witches brew or ointment is famous in our culture, This is an ointment chat the witches smeared their 

broom and their bodies with to induce trance states. The recipes are numerous contains a mixture of 

different powerful and sometimes poisonous herbs. Some retypes are containing aconite and hemlock, 

two herbs that were used in executions, and opium and hash. In some recipes seemingly useless 

ingredients are included like urine and slime of toads. Often most of the ingredients did serve a purpose. 

Urine is supposed to contain certain stimulants and this can explain why it was included in the German 

witches Dreck Apotek, where the fluids of the body was saved for magical purposes. The slime of toads 

sounds like something from a fairy tale but is a traditional hallucinogen. The secret from a toads ski 

containing bufotenin and substances similar to DMT The main ingredients of the witches oiniment 

four potato plants that are only used in very small amounts, otherwise they are too poisonous. They 

Thorn 'Apple, Henbane, Belladonna and Mandrake. They are eon taming the alkaloids hyoscyamin, 

atropin and scopolamine. Atropin is used today to cure certain mushroom poisonings. In the military 

atropin have been used as a cure in nerve gas attacks. It is a great paradox that atropin is in itself a 

hallucinogen can reduce the effect of other hallucinogens like LSD and Mescaline. Scopolamine is a very 

powerful substance that was used as a truth serum. The witch herbs can induce trance states with lowered 

brain wave activity - alpha waves- and a hypnotic HEM state, similar to the dream state. 




Thorn-Apple (Datura stramonium) is an infamous hallucinogen that has nicknames like devils herb, 
devils apple and yerba dd diable. It has been used all around the world as a magical drug. In Haiti it is 
included in the Zombie process. Both in India and among the Indians it was used, but viewed with dread. 
The Kali worshippers in India used it and so did the Dionysus cults. The old'wiiter of herbal scripts 
Theophrastos describes what happens if one takes Thorn- Apple root; about 4,2 grams makes one a hell 
of a man (the root has been used as a aphrodisiac), die double dose induces visions and temporary 
confusion, three times the dose induces lasting insanity and four times the dose leads to death. Thorn- 
Apple has been used to leave the body. The herb was believed to give the ability to fly between the worlds, 
but is viewed as difficult to handle when it often causes black outs and sleepwalking. 

Henbane (Hyoscyamus nigcr) was used in the witches sabbath as a welcoming drink In very small 
amounts the seeds crushdd in a chalice causes delirium. The name hyoscamus is a latin version of the 
Greek name "hyoskamus" created by Carl von Linn*. The Greek name means swine bean and comes from 
the legend of the witch Kirke who transformed the crew of Odysseus into swine through a brew of 
Henbane. The oracle priestesses in Delphi was claimed to reach their trance visions through breathing 
in the smoke of Henbane. In old norse tradition the Henbane was probably used by witches and Volvot 
Henbane was probably included in the powerful posion that Grimhild offered Gudrun in the 
GudrunskvidcL Just like with the other with herbs certain ceremonial acts are included when collecting 
these herbs in nature. The Henbane is drawn from the ground a full moon night with the help of a bkd 
that is tied to the plant 

Belladonna (A tropa belladonna). The latin name can be traced to the Greek goddess of destiny Attopos, 
"die inevitable one" who cuts off mans life thread. The species name Belladonna means "beautiful 
woman" since the women in southern Europe used the juice of the herb in their eyes so that thev would 



get big pupils and a dreamy look, to become more eroncally attractive, A drop of pure Belladonna oil 
makes the pupils enlarged so that the eyes look black. The herb has other names that is reminiscent of 
its effects; somnifcrum, the sleep giving, hynoticon, the hypnotising or enchanting, iacthale, ±e Jethal 
and furiale, the raging Belladonna has been used in medicine as well as in poisonings. The psychoactive 
effects can cause visions and a feeling of weightlessness. The root is used to create amulets, . 

Mandrake (Mandragora officinarurn). No other herb or plant is so strongly connected to witchcraft and 
black magic The meat-like root is similar to an entwined human body and is believed to be one of the 
most powerful magical objects a magician can ever own. In medieval grimoires it is explained that the 
root can give all happiness on earth. But when the owner dies he will burn eternally in hell if he has not 
disposed of the root before his death. IF the root was bought it must be sold to a lower price than it was 
purchased for. After a while this can be difficult! The historian joscphus Flavius that lived in the early 
centuries describes the Mandrake as a fantastic root that could be found in a valley around the dead sea. 
It glowed with a red light at night. It disappeared when when one tried go get it and the only way to catch 
it was to pour urine or menstrual blood on it. The myth that the Mandrake glows at night is not a false 
claim. In certain climates and weather it can give off a vague light To draw the Mandrake from the ground 
was believed to be hazardous. When the root is dtawn from the ground it is believes that it produces a 
terrible shriek that will toll anyone who holds it. According to ancient folklore the Mandrake should be 
drawn from the earth a Thursday night under a full moon by a black dog. According to Theophxasms 
one must first draw three circles around the plant with a knife. With the face turned to the west one will 
then proceed to cut off the top of the root. Then one should gradually cut loose more and more of the 
root. Before the lastbitof the root is collected one should dance around it and tell everything one knows 
about the secrets of sex and love. The Mandrake is known to be a powerful aphrodisiac. In the Bible it 
is mentioned as the apple of love and some mean that the forbidden fruit is really the berries of the 
Mandrake, The Mandrake could also be the prototype for the creation of Adam. The Mandrake was 
believed to grow under a hanged man, were his ejaculation at death reached the ground was were the 
Mandrake would grow. The words Mandrake and "Air una" reveals the mysteries of the plant Air una is 
old norse language and means "all secrets" or "sacred secrets"- The Alruna is the rcvealer of those secrets. 
Mandragora is the Man dragon, a draconian seed that is growing in special secret and powerful places. 
The Mandrake is a powerful hallucinogen. 

The recipes of the witches ointment can vary. This is a modern example: 

3 grams o f Bellad onn a lea f s 

9 gram s o f Henbane se eds 

1 gram s o f Thorn - Appl c leafs 

1/5 gram of pulverized Man drake root 

This is to be misted up with grease and made into a smooth ointment 

The ointment is to be smeared around the genitals, in the armpits and on the wrists, or other places where 
^he skinn is thin. The ointment is poisonous and should be used with care and in smaller quantity 
Another important thing to mention is that in above is a northern european recipe and chat the same 
plants growing in warmer parts of the world generally are much stronger. So the contents of the ointment 
should be used in half or even only one third of the quantity when making it from herbs and roots from 
tropical or subtropical countries. 




Magical mushrooms 

Statues of mushroom gods was found in Latin America, The ancient Indians valued the psilocybin 
mushrooms highly, so highly that they were given a divine status, The mushrooms that "was called 
Teonanacad was surrounded by a cult personified by the god Xochipillij "prince of the flowers". The 
mushrooms were believed to be one of the best ways to gain access to the spirit world and the shamans 
used these on their magical journeys. Id the books by Carlos Castaneda the meeting with the "little 
smoke" is described, this is a smoke mixture that includes mainly psilocybin mushrooms, In northern 
Europe psilocybin mushrooms have been used in magical rituals for a long time. Many of these 
mushrooms are growing also in this northern pans of the world. Mushrooms arc connected to the 
teachings of earth power and dragon lines since they consist of gigantic root systems that are growing 
according to the power lines of the earth. 

The most famous hallucinogen is LSD and is also derived from a mushroom. LSD comes from ergot 
(secale corn u turn) which is black infected seeds from different crops. The infection comes from the 
resting state of the mushroom (Claviceps purpurea) that contains many substances used in medicine, but 
also poisonous alkaloids. The psilocybin mushroom and LSD are rcktcd in the hallucinogenic effect 

The most mythical and sacred mushroom must be the fly agaric. Also this mushroom is an hallucinogen 
that have been used by witches, magicians and shamans in many different cultures. Itis generally believed 
that the Vikings got drunk by this mushroom in connection with berserker ceremonies. Some facts reveal 
that this might not have been the case, many of the alkaloids of the mushroom induces sleepiness and 
calm. Only the red fly agaric have been used. All other mushrooms of this kind are deadly. The red is also 
deadly if eaten raw The mushroom must be dried or boiled. If the mushroom is not correctly prepared 
it can cause death or incurable damage to the kidneys and the liver. The effect from the red fly agaric can 
be much stronger than LSD But sometimes it can give no effect at ail, but perhaps the lasting feeling 
if sickness and tiredness. This mushroom have been used in Siberia bv shamanic tribes. First the 
mushroom is prepared then one of the tribe members consume the mixture. The urine of the consumer 
is then consumed by the test of the tribe. The urine is then free of all poisons and only the hallucinogen 
alkaloids are left. For us westerners it can seem a. bit odd to get drunk on this mushroom, An 
anthropologist introduced the men in one of the shamanic tribes to alcohol. The day after the consuming 
of the alcohol the men stated that they could not possible understand how anyone could freely use this 
terrible thing called liquor. 

IpQttrca Purpurea and Nutmtg 

The Ipomeasceds contains LSA LSA is related to LSD, 10- 1 S grams of the seeds of the flower is crushed 
and put in wine ot water. The crushed seeds is left in the fluid for 12 hours before it is consumed . 

.Nutmeg (myristica fragrans) is a hallucinogen that can be found in most kitchens, the nutmeg just like 
the nutmeg flower can induce psychedelic experiences. The prophet Nostradamus used nutmeg to seek 
visions. Also the infamous Charles Mans on used nutmeg in prison. Five or ten crushed nuts is a 

hallucinogenic dose. But this amount will cause nausea and a terrible hangover. 



Mild psyc&Qdtiive kerbs 

All the previously mentioned herbs and mushrooms can lead to serious eg Frequences, There is also a 
knowledge about less poisonous and dangerous plants that can still be very effective. Many have been used 
traditionally in magical ceremonies or as aphrodisiacs. AH of these herbs below are legal and easy to get, 
in a health shop or in an occult shop- 
One of the most effective plants For visionary inspiration is Kava-Kava (Piper methysticum), a pepper 
plant from the Fiji islands, Kava-Kava is the national drink on Fiji where it is used in ceremonial purposes 
as well as for relaxation and pleasure. The effect of Kava-Kava is very subtle and an insensitive person 
might not experience anything at all the first rimes. After a while when the effect have been identified 
it can be experienced, Kava-Kava induces a feeling of clearness and exaltation combined with a feeling 
of heightened mental energy and physical relaxation. In larger doses the body can feel a bit numb and 
the "Kava" can be used as a help for sleeping disorders. It can give hallucinatory experiences, mosdy 
clairaudienee. Kava-Kava is suitable for all kinds of astral operations and dream journeys and meditation 
to music. It is also a sexual stimulant mostly suitable for astral sex + 

A very powerful herb is Yohimbe (Corynanthc yohimbe)- Its effect is strong and it is not sure if it is to 
be called a mild psychoactive herb. Yohimbe grows in Africa and has been used as an aphrodisiac for a 
very long lime. The hark is a strong sexual stimulant. It has mostly been used by men since it enlarges 
the penis. During cercrnorucs Yohimbe was consumed to extend the sexual practises for several days. It 
is dangerous to combine Yohimbe with alcohol, diary products and MAO-inhibkers and most drugs, 

Damiapa (Turnera Diffusa) is a well known and used aphrodisiac Louis J. Culling describes it in his 
classical book "The Secrets of Sex MagJck". It is a mild stimulant and has been used by many modern 
tannics. It hacks origin in Mexico where the women used to drink it an hour before sex since it heightened 
the pleasure 

Ginseng is a root that has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine It was believed to be 
able to cute most disease 5 and activate the seven energy zones of the body Modern science has shown that 
Ginseng heightens the immune system and the performance of the brain. Ginseng is used in connection 
with Kundaliru and Chakra meditations and in sex magic 

Ordinary tea and especially green tea has got magical qualities. It increases the energy and have a positive 
effect on the kundaluii. The same goes for Guarana that is a plant from the Amaaonas that contains 
caffeine Its seed is crushed and mixed in a stimulant blew. The Cocoa bean is an aphrodisiac that have 
similar alkaloids to the drug Amphetamine, It is known to be used in seductions in our culture. Often 
in the form of an exclusive box of chocolate Combined with roses it can give a very good effect. 



Week 1-2 


Use your sexual energies to strengthen your magical willj to be more aware in dreams and in the waiting 
life. Create a magical seal that represents your hjghcr self It can start with a sun cross with your name 
inside or be a totally new symbol Focus aJJ sexual energies on this symbol Meditate on this symbol before 
going to sleep at night and place the seai under the pillow. Make a talisman of the seal that you can carry 
during the day time. Note how the symbol becomes a cataJyst for the kundalini energy and how it 
strengthens your will and awareness. 

The symbol can conjure sexual beings that will appear in dreams or in hypnagogic states. Explore this 
if it feels right It can be a way to increased contact with the other side, but it can also attract vampiristk 
forces so keep a firm Integrity. 

The symbol will in crease the contact with your higher self. Communicate with it through a Ouija, mirror 
or a crystal ball, Do this at Jeast four times. Wnte down the results, 

Try to have contact with the horned god and die dark goddess through rituals, extraordinary 
communication and dreams. 



Seek the secret fire in a candle light and synchronise it with the secret fire in your soul-die Chi-point (also 
called the heart of the dragon) which is the heart of the astral and etheric energies. The point somewhere 
in the belly area and is a centre of balance of the soul. 

Centre the Chi -point and focus all sexual impulses here and let them strengthen the aura, Your personal 
magnetism will increase which will influence the way you speak, walk and your charisma. This is not to 

be the goal since that would place the focus outside the practise It is only a secondary result 


By strengthening the Chi*point and through this the aura the magnetism in the hands will increase, 
Explore this by doing healing (hangovers, muscle problems etc) and auric sex, or to crush a piece of wood 
by hand (we will not be responsible for damaged hands, so be careful). 




LetTen 5 

The thought that the universe is constructed according to certain 
geometrical and mathematical principles can be found in many mystical 
systems all around the world. In the west we can find it in the Teachings 
of Pythagoras and the neo -pi atonies. Their thoughts would influence 
j the Qabalah which is the magical system that have the most complex 

map of rhe geometrical /mathematical structures of the iiftivcrse Almost all western magical systems are 
influenced by the Qabalah. The Qabalah is a magical system of the right hand path. Its goal is to repair 
the original order that was broken in the fall, and bring man back to the Garden of Eden and the grace 
of God. The path to this goal is the pr actise of spiritual exercises, prayer, abstinence and the mosaic laws. 
Other goals of the Qabalah is to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem which was destroyed by "the beast" 
(Rome), and to cleanse man from all sinful elements, namely all female aspects and principles. In Qabalah 
evil is called the Qiiphoth which is a condescending name for woman, it means "whore* (It can also be 
translated as "shell", "cave", "womb*). The dark and evil is connected to the female element. Western 
occultism fears the Qiiphoth more than anything dx. The Qiiphoth is chaos, destruction, lawlessness, 
sin and revolt against God and creation. Only very few magicians have worked with these powers. The 
magic of the goetia where 72 demons are conjured is a QJi photic system just like parts of die system of 
Abramelin, Dragon Rouge is an unique order in using the Qliphoiic powers in a initiatory way. Step by 
step we are using the powers of the Qiiphoth to break down the structures of creation so that we shall 
become like gods. Against the mathematical/geometrical structures of the Qabalah we arc using the 
chaos -mathematical and fractal powers of the Qiiphoth, In this fifth letter yon will receive a unique deep 
study of the Qiiphoth.

The Pendulum of Focault 

Tfre DarK siDe op Tt?e qabaI^I? 

The Qabakh is the mystical and philosophical mterpretation/dcriphering of the biblical tradition. The 
Qabafch has its origin among the Jews but have during the years been used by the magicians of the west 
that have included correspondences from other religions and systems. The most central concept in 
Qabalism is the symbol'The Three of life" which is amapof the inner and outer existence. The Tree 
of Life consists of ten ''Sephiroth" which are the different levels of manifestation of ctcation and thus 
representing different states of bemg The ten Sephkoth are connected with twenty two paths. The paths 
and the Sephiroth corresponds with different angels and divine names. 

Many books and manuscripts have been written about the Qabakh but the concept of the 
Qliphoth is in rare cases mentioned in haste but is often never touched. What is written about the 
Qliphoth is mostly short warnings for its powers. The QUphoth exists on the back of the Tree of Life 
Tnebackside or shadow is the dark and truly hidden parts of existence. This side has been called "the Tree 
of Anti-life" or "the Tree of Death", QUphoth means shells in Hebrew. The Qliphoth and the Sephiroth 
is each others oppositcs and mirrors. The QUphoth is often compared to caves that are linked with tunnels 
underground. While the Sephiroth represents the heavens above the Qliphoth represents the infernal 
regions belaw. Here all demons of mankind can be found, they are all powers and aspects of existence 
that man have repres sed in fear. For this reason these worlds are viewed as evil and very few stu di es o f them 
bve been made. Most people do not dare to face the evil in themselves and in their world. The Qliphoth 
is not evil from any objective point of view; only from the way that people experiences it Often the 
Qliphoth is viewed as the roots of the SephirotTL This picture corresponds to the view of the underworld 
as the world of the dark powers. The Qliphoth can also bee seen as lurking in MaJkuth, the lowest SephkiL 
Thus the Qliphoth is the power potential that must be awakened if man is to be able to reach the divine 
sphere. Both views of the Qliphoth reveals it as the kingdom of the underworld, The Qliphoth can also 
be viewed as the shadow of the Sephiroth, In all views the QUphoth is the dark mirror of the Sephiroth. 

The anti-world 

The scientific side of the QUphotic powers is found in the theories about anti-matter. Anti-matter is 
con strutted like all other matter but is consists of anti -atoms and and-particks. A hydrogen atom consists 
of a positive proton in the core and a negative proton in orbit around it A hydrogen anti-atom consists 
of a negative proton in the core and a positive proton around it (positron). The particles of anri-matter 
is with other words opposites to the normal atoms. Our world and the parts of space that have been 



explored by man seems to consist only of normal matter- But the universe must originally have contained 
an ambiplasma consisting of the same amount of and -matter as of normal matter. The an ti -matter have 
been repressed, at least from our galaxy. 

The Qliphoth is the anti-worlds that are constructed in a similar way but still is an opposite of the 
Sephiroth. Just like and -matter the QUphoth is repressed from the normal Sephiroth worlds. The 
repression is a question of view. Hypothetically thinking, if a man existing on the QJiphotic side of 
Mai kuth (earth), Lilith s the Sephiroth would be the repressed worlds. The same applies for any anti- 
worids who would not have to be different from ours except for the charge of the elementary particles. 
If the normal Sephiroth worlds would meet with the Qliphotic wodds they would annihilate each other. 
B ut they are e xi s ting in a kind of terror h alanc e that m akes th eir existence p ossiblc . I f a particle and a an ti- 
particle would meet they would be annihilated and a tremendous force would be released. This will not 
occur if the mass is big enough, then a Lddenfrost layerwould be created to keep them apart. Such a layer 
exists between the Sephiroth and the Qliphoth. If it would break, it would probably result in a 

Chavaioth and the number eleven

Eliphas Levi "La Clef des Grands Mysteces 



The ten Sephiroth is the cosmos, the divine order. They are God thd Lord, Alpha and Omega - the 
beginning and the end The Qliphoth is chaos, They are Satan (Hebr. opponent), the shadow and 
opposite of God. They exist outside the beginning and the end, in the dimensions outside rime. The 
symbol of harmony is the circle and its number is ten. The number of Qliphoth is eleven. Eleven means 
astep outside order. Eleven is the Luciferian breakingwith creation. Before Lucifer and the other angels 
with him defied God, the harmony was complete. The Outbreak of Lucifer means chaos, Changes 
occurred and the old stagnation was broken. Ten became eleven. According to the Qabalists the name 
of the prince of darkness is not Satan. It is only the title that names him the opposite of God Jehovah. 
From a Qliphotic perspective God is Satan since he is the opposite of the an ti- worlds, The true name of 
the prince of darkness is according to the Qabalists the name of God backwards, According to Levi itis 
"Chavajoh" using a Hebrew constitution of vowels. Although Jehovah and Chavajoh are representing 
opposite principles they are not far from each other, similar to the number ten and eleven. 

The number of the Qliphoth is eleven since the top Qlipha is divided. It is called Thaumiel, the 
twin god. Itis the extreme opposite to the top Sephirah, Kether, that represents complete unity. Thaurniel 
represents eternal changes and manifoldncss. The twin gods arc in constant fight which contributes to 
eternal progression. This is the secret of the number eleven; itis the gate to eternity. The number ten is 
a closed circle which is broken by the number one. In the sexual mysticism the number ten is virginity 
that is opened by the phallic one and becomes the numbei eleven- the gate. The fear of the opening makes 
the eleven a monstrous beast. This is also the manifested form of eleven, Chavajoh have been pictured 
during the ages. It is the the fearsome Ti am at of the Babylonians and Apep of the Egyptians, but also the 
red dragon of the myths that rests in the abyss ready to break in and take the virginity of our world and 
thus open the gates to other worlds, 



The Qliphoth and the Necronum icon 

The Qliphoth is where the dark gods d weft All aspects of existence that the human mind have repressed 
because of fear arc also here. All fears man have not dared to confront, a]] wisdom man have not dared 
to accept are hidden in the Qliphoth. This is the main theme in the novels by H.P Lovecraft Beyond 
our world there are entities that are waiting to rush into our wodd as soon as someone opens the gate. 
The novel Call of Cthulhu begins with these words: "I believe that the greatest mercifulness is that the 
human mind is incapable of grasping all that it contains. We are living on a peaceful island in the middle 
of the black sea of infinity**. In this manner Lovecraft dives into the Qliphotic psychology; in fear of 
ourselves we have repressed great parts of existence. We are caught in our limited conceptions and are 
living in them totally unaware of the dark reality that exists outside. If the walls that are protecting us 
would fall, it would lead to chaos and our annihilation. For a dark magician the unknown and dark parts 
of existence is a well known reality with which he/she works. 

The novels bv Lovecraft are filed with fear of the dark powers. He gives a description of how the 
world will be when the ancient dark gods are conquering it: "Man will be free beyond good and evil, 
without laws and moral, Then the ancient ones will teach man new ways to scream, kill and rave, and 
the earth will burn with a annihilation of ecstasy and freedom". This harmageddon-description reveals 
Lovecrafts moralic background when he describes freedom as eviL This age of chaos does not have to be 
negative, rather it might be a phase of freedom in which the true being of man reveals itself. 

The mystical bookNecronomicon chat is mentioned several times in his books has been the topic 
of many speculations. Some believe that it is a real and fatal gomoire of unknown origin. Though one 
must suppose that it is merely a product of Lovecrafts fantasies. It does not make it less interesting since 
he was agteat dreamer that unconsciou sly contacted the Qliphotic spheres Lovecraft was supposed to 
have had very surrealistic nightmares. These can have been his visions of the Qliphoth. These dreams was 
the foundation for the dark wodd of mvths that he created in his literature. 



According to many qabalists the Qliphoth was 
created at the fall. This released the red dragon, the 
original serpent Here illustrated by Austin Osman

Practical magical work with the Qliphatic powers have been almost impossible for most magicians since 
hardly no books or other information about the subject have been available. Dragon Rouge have worked 
to find techniques for Qliphatic magic It must be pointed out that the Qliphotic tree is also called the 
Tree of Death and these forces can be very dangerous since they are opposed to all that people of this world 
view as norma], 


To contact the anu worlds of the Qliphoth one must learn the and- thinking. One of the best 
methods tor this is to "walk in the shadow". This method is also called "powerwaiking" since it opens 
the gate to enormous powers. The powerwalking is done when walking, one visualises chat the left kg 
is moved when physically the right kg is moved. The powerwalking should be practised on a open area 
without people or any obstacles since it is easy to walk into them. It is recommended that someone is 
around to pull one out of the trance walk if needed. 

Another way to contact the anti- worlds is to focus on the syncopes in music, the emptiness between 
the tones or beat. Another meditation exercise is to gaze into a mirror and try to change consciousness 
with the mirror image. One can also call out the names of the Qliphotic powers. The magician should 
visualize the demon ruler and call out the name as a mantra. Information about these demons can be 
found in grirnoires even if they are influenced by Christianity and filled with supers tition. 

The symbol of Adamas A ter is one of the most powerful symbols of the Qliphoth. It can be used as a key 
to Qliphotic worlds. It represents the number eleven and AA - the black diamond, the Qliphoth and

Faust Hollenzwang 


AH over the world and during all rimes people have believed that we are surrounded by good and evil 
spirits. The ordinary man have turned to the good spirits fo r p toteca on a n c help. The good spirits or more 
accurately "the spirits of the light" represents different aspects of the god or gods that created the structure 
and order in creation. They arc strengthening and keeping up the divine and ideal order, A small amount 
of people have chosen to conjure the other spirits at night - the evil spirits. These dark beings are invoked 
for purposes that frightens the normal population. The dark spirits are disintegrating the divine and ideal 
order and why would anyone want to invoke these and accomplish this? The most common explanation 
is that it is because of egoistical and destructive reasons. This is true. But on a much deeper level than 
a uninitiated mind can understand. 

The universe consists of two basic principles. One is the manifesting astringent and creating power 
that mows clockwise. It is represented by the forces of light and the right hand (dextri). The other is the 
disintegrating, expanding and destructive power that moves anti-clock wise, It is represented by the dark 
powers and the left hand, in Latin called "sinistra" which also means evil, wily. Just like the wise of die 
cast are turning to Shiva that represents the destructive power, the magicians of the west have turned to 
Satan (hebr. opponent, the reversed movement) or one of the pagan predecessors like Pan, Saturn, Set, 
Odin/Loki, Dionysus* Cernunnos etc The reason that a magician turns to the destructive powers is that 
they are the key to the personal magical power. They are annihilating the obstacles and limitations on 
the path of the magician. This is the power the destroys the stone that surrounds the diamond, A magician 
is not using these powers for meaningless destruction. On the contrary they are making the creativity of 
the magician possible. They are releasing the divine in the magician and sets one free from the limitations 
of creation thus enabling one to become a creator. 

Every principle in existence or creation has got a dark side/ shadow that releases the powet of the 
principle and makes it accessible for the magician. Thus the world consists of billions of demons and evil 
spirits. Some are viewing them as objectively existing beings while other chooses to see them as 
psychological principles in the mind A magician can gain power over these principles if the true name 
is known and vibrated/ pronounced right Through me ages different books with demons and rituals have 
been created by magicians. In the west these books have been known as "grimoixes". There are three main 
systems of demonology in the western tradition, two are rooted in the Qabalah. Hie first axe those bearing 
the name of Solomon himself. Here we can find complicated rituals and magical circles and triangles 
Here is also the classical Qabalisnc seals that are based on the Aiq Bekr the Qabalah of the nine chambers, 
that is based on the Hebrew alphabet and the secret name of God Sehemhamforash. The other Qabalis tic 
system is derived from only one book - The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage. Here one can find the 
magical squares with demonic names and chiffer which represents the will and desire of man in dii ierent 
aspects. The squares are working as catalysts of the powers and realizes the will of the magician. They are 
used as talismans and are believed to be very powerful and dangerous. Alcistcr Crowley called "The 
Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage** the best and most dangerous book that have ever been written. 
The last system is more directed towards the powers of the light. This is John Dec *s Enochian system that 
is a careful map of the different spheres of the universe and the elemental worlds and spirits. Besides these 
systems the magician reaches contact with spirits through his own experiments. The Ouija board is one 
popular way to contact the other side. More advanced magicians might try automatic writing and channel 
sign's and other information. The next step is to contact spirits and powers in dreams or astral journeys. 



For a dark magician it might be a bit confusing to use the old grim aires since they are filled with Jewish 
and Christian superstition. The demons arc forced to appear in the names of Jehovah, Adonai, Elohim 
and Zabaoth. It can feel strange for a magician whos sympathy is more with the demons than with the 
Christian /Jewish God. One must bear inmind that these grimokes were written in an age when everyone 
where Christian or Jewish, The dark magic that was practised then was transformed and Chri s t ian ized 
but wc can today use the ceremonies with small changes. It is the result that matters, 

There arc also more modem ways to contact the powers. Many methods to conjure and evoke 
spirits according to the left hand path and dark magic have been developed within Dragon Rouge- Here 
follows one of the demon rituals that is used in Dragon Rouge, we will also present a chosen number of 
Qliphotic spirits for Dragon Rouge magicians to contact According to some modern books evocations 
are simple and not dangerous at all Nodung could be further from the truth. Evocations are dangerous 
and difficult, something that every real magician knows. The fact that one soil performs the operation 
is because it is one of the most powerful and direct way to gain knowledge and power. 

Demon Conjurations 

The incantations and ntuals of the old grim oires are long and complicated. This heightens concentration. 
Every thought and and action that is carried out for a purpose makes the possibility for success greater. 
Thus it is good to be concentrated and serious when performing an evocation. Dragon Rouge has chosen 
to take away many of the classical elements of the old rituals. This can be done both because we are 
demanding more of the magicians ability to inner concentration and discipline and because it is more 
in accordance with the left hand path. The following ritual can be described as a minimalisric evocation. 
The magician should conduct the ritual three days after the decision The magician should fast these three 
days and mccbtate over the name and sigil of the demon at least one hour each day. The magician states 
clearly what he/she wants to accomplish with the ritual. This should be written on a secret note that the 
magician places under the pillow at night The magician should try to visualize what the demon looks 
like and send out a calling through the dreams. 

The evening of the ritual should include cleaning of the ritual area and puriSearion rituals. The 
magician should also take a hath or shower before the ritual. Abra-Melin explains that spirits loves dean 
and pure areas. Though there exists certain dirt-demons who are attracted by dirt and dust, hut these are 
never used other than in special coprosophical rituals. The magician sits down in front of a purified 
magical mirror and paints the sigil on the mirror using suitable paint (such that can be removed with 
water). A black candle is placed in front of the mirror and an incense of musk or dragons blood is burned. 
Then the magicians makes a opening gesture and chants; 

When the contact is growing the magician can chant the name of the demon and look at the sigil 
with a relaxed unfocused gaze. After a while the spirit will hopefully appear. The first sensations can be 
a feeling of some thing invisible being present in the room. After this the being might be seen in the mirror. 
If the magician is advanced oc if the evocation is a success the magician will experience how the demon 
enters the room through the mirror. The contact can continue during the night in dreams ot astral 
workings, The gate must be dosed the following day When the contact is ended the magician breaks the 
contact and greets the demon in a polite way and conducts purl fie ation ceremonies. A shower can be 
suitable also after the opetanon.

Week 1-4 


Practise the Qliphotic breathing exercises, where you visualize that you arc breathing in when yoy are 
physically breathing oat and vice versa. Use the breathing to enter trance and to open up tunnels in the 
soul through which the kundalini can rise up. Practise the reversed breathing every second evening for 
two weeks. 

"Dance with your shadow". Light a black candle behind you and sit in front of a wall thus enabling you 
to see your shadow in similar size as yourself. Make a circle around you and light musk or other suitable 
incense. Send energy from your aura out of the fingertips towards the hands of the shadow You are 
sending auriclignt The shadow will after a while start to send a form of shadow energies into your hands. 
Move your hands and let it become a dance where light and darkness arc united and exchanged. Make 
this practise only once and let it take its time. When you are finished be sure to ritualize the ending of 
the ritual very carefully The contact with she shadow must be limited to isolated events to prevent that 
its powers do not flow into the ordinary life where they can influence in a very destructive way Take a 
shower or a hath and purify and strengthen the aura after this ritual Be sure to turn on the lights and 
try to banish all shadow energies. 

Meditate on the moon (preferably fulimoonj and invoke the goddess. Create a tunnel to the moon 
through reversed breathing and contact the moon sphere. Seek knowledge about the moon sphere and 
travel into it if possible. Seek astral visions in the moon that can give you information and impulses 
regarding this sphere. Write down your results in the magical diary, 

"Make love with your shadow". The same procedure as with thedance but including auric sex. Often the 
dark goddess, the horned god or other deity will manifest in the shadow This act can lead to one of the 
most fantasdc experiences a magician can experience - an act where the powers of light and darkness 
united in a erotic meeting, but be careful and keep a strong integrity. End the ritual with respect for the 
shadow or what is inside the shadow. Do not forget that the shadow belongs to a more powerful 
dimension, * 



cmAGicaX course 2 

n 6 

The second initiation in Dragon Rouge means that one has started to 
walk the left hand path. The magical student has entered the cave of 
Lilith and begun the journey through the Qliphotic runnels. The first 
step is to explore the caves of the dark dreams which are represented by 
Gamaliel. This automatically brings an initiation 11^ witchcraft and the 
magical student should establish a contact with dream entities and archetypical figures. The con tact with 
the dark goddess is extremely important since she will be the main guide and ally on the path to the cave 
of the beast (Thaginon). The second initiation is the first of three that belongs to the astral plane or the 
moon sphere. There can be some confusing elements on this sphere since many gates will open, Therefore 
the discipline and patience must be very strong when working towards this sphere. Dream and reality 
can be confused when working with Gamaliel, This is nothing to worry about. The differences between 
dream and reality will become more obvious in time. Perhaps in a way that might be surprising. 

The second initiation wit] be made together with two persons approved by the inner circle of Dragon 
Rouge, To be initiated you must first have been granted an initiation and this is done by sending an 
application, together with a description about your experiences and eventuaJ questions concerning the 
second course. You will aJso write a text about the draco nian magic, eventually from the perspective of 
the second level of inhuaxionThe text should be at least two pages (A4, not hand written), The application 
together with texts shall be written in good language. 

If you are having any doubts that your magical achievements will be serious and lasting we would advice 
you not to go through with this initiation. Dragon Rouge does nor welcome any magical May flics and 
it can be a burden for the person if an initiation is done that leads to nothing. The initiation of the second 
level means that the magician is planting a seed in the dream consciousness which will grow and sprout 
fast together with the magical progression. One is establishing a contact with the other side, the hidden. 
The value of this contact can not be overestimated. It will guide the magician through life and even 
through death. 

If one is to be initiatedone must be able to work together with other members. We do not want people 
using the order as a spring board for their own operations. Your psychical and physical condition must 
allow long and sometimes demanding magical operations. We will not initiate people who are suffering 
from any addiction or are having psychical/social problems, A magician is often helping others and must 
tint be able to help him/herself When working with chaos one can not be too chaotic one self 

As an initiate in the second level of Dragon Rouge you ire expected to participate actively in the activities 
of the order in a way that suits you best. You will repay what you have learnt through passing it on and 
helping others in the order You will share the responsibility of keeping the order functioning and 
owing. Ai an initiate you will have a more and mote important role in the draconian current. If you 
arc serious and if it is your wish you can be a pan of a international magical community that could last 
the test of your life. Well* probably even longer.

The cave o£ I. iitt n 

Lilith is the mother of all demons. The is the foremost female principle of the dark side and returns in 
many aspects on Sitra Ahra. Lilith carries the Dragon in her womb. She is also the Indian goddess Kali 
who is Shakti, which means power and corresponds to the kundalini - the Dragon force/Me force. This 
power is separated from from the divine and is buried on the physical plane but is the power behind all 
existence. It is Tiamat, the Babylonian dragon of chaos, who were thrown down into the abyss and on 
who's body creation rests. One must go inside the surf ace of thematerial to reach the powerthat is hidden 
there. Lilith is the first Qliphotk sphere and the dark side of the material plane. She is the indomitable 
Mother Earth who is worshipped by the witches. She is the wild nature that man has escaped- In Zohar 
1 34a Lilith is called "the soul of the wild animals" and among the Sumerians she was LU, the storm, the 
typhoon and the hurricane. Out in the wild nature is the crack in the material through which the 
darkmagician travels. The womb of LUith is the gate to Sitra Ahra. 'The dark forest" who Dante enters 
to find the gate to Inferno corresponds to the Lilith Qlipha. 

In the Jewish mythology Lilith was the first wife of Adam. She was the female force who were 
equalled with the male, but since the structuring principles oi the light was growing there was no 
possibility for her who represented the dark and wild to be equal with Adam who represented the order, 
the structures and the categpnsing principle. God - the principle of light, tried to subdue UUth but she 
escaped out of the Garden of Eden and out to the wild nature. Here she met Samael (Satan). Together 
with him she gave birth to the Qliphotk demonic legions. LUith dwelled in a cave that also symbolizes 

her womb and the gate to Inferno (Sitra Ahra). 

Blackholes arc the caves of Lilith. The black holes arc gates thatleads to other universes (Sitra Ahra, 
antiworlds). The blackholes are sucking i all light and channels itto the other side. The light is the energy 
of existence which die magician and all humans arc parts of. The magician is trying to find these black 
boles which are gates to the "wormholes"in the universe - the tunnels of Qliphoth. It is from black holes 
thatunivcrsesareborn and itis through blackholes that visitors from the other side arrives. The Qliphotic 
gates of the dark magician are black holes that he can travel into or conjure demonk beings through 
Magicians arc fertilizing the womb of lilith with his wiU - the magical seed - and let the willed be born 

out of it. 

From a tannic terminology the Lilith Qlipha is the dark side or the toot of the Muladhara chakra. 

Muladhara is the energy zone that is located between anus and the genitals. It is illustrated as a red lotus 

with four petals and corresponds to the earth clement - the material From here the bask instincts and 

desires arc controlled. In Muladhara, inside the earth, the fite is hidden together with the will behind 

all existence. This is the fire that the magcian shall awake when he enters the womb of Lilith- 

Lilidi is aform of the Shekhina is the Qabaiah, which is the female aspect that has been driven down 

in the material in esdle. She is captured in the matter just Like the dragon in the bottom of the abyss. She 

is thus the presence of the divine power in the material plane. This is the "energy" that has been captured 

in the "form", the "will" thathas been caught in the "'conception". Sophia of the Gnostics is in the same 

way driven down to the material plane and is a form of LUith. 'The form and the conception" are the 

causes to creation and the structured existence. It corresponds to the Demiurgof the Gnostics, who is 

the same as jahve. "The energy and the will" revolts against the Demiurg that are kcepingitim] 

Like the serpent of Eden this force reveals itself to give man the possibility to release it and 5a^-e himself 

and reach divmkv.The Gnostics believed chat the serpent was the same as me saviour, or the real saviout 




Sometliing that is confirmed since the word foe serpent in Hebrew is "Nechesh" which has the same 
numerical value as the word for saviour "messiach", the number 358. To end the Lilith Qlipha the 
magician must seek the parts of the material plane that belongs to the shadows, the parts of the material 
existence that are outside the normal and known. It is here in this cave that the sleeping dragon can be 

The dark side of the moon. 

After having passed through the cave of Lilith the magician reaches the dream consciousness. This is a 
state that normal people are only having vague and temporary memories of. When the magician reaches 
Gamaliel he/she enters the dream sphere and the astral plane. The Qliphas Sarnael 'The poison of God" 
and A 'arab Zaraq "The raven of Disintegration are also belonging to this level, they are representing the 
dark side of thoughts (Samael) and feelings (A "arab Zaraq). In the beginning of the magical development 
one can experience the astral plane but the total experience and control arrives first when the dragon force 
have fully nsen to the astral level. The Scphiroth that corresponds to Gamaliel is Ycsod and the chakra 
is Svadhistana which is placed above the genitals. This chakra is illustrated as an orange lotus flower with 
six petals. As all chakias the root is at the spine. When one is meditating over the lotus flower one can 
feel how its power i s pulsating from the spine. 

The astral plane and the dreams is represented by the moon. Yesod is the light side of the moon, 
Gamaliel is the dark side, Gamaliel is called "the obscene"> which can give a hint about how the Qlipha 
can be experienced. AD repressed fantasies, desires and dreams arc hidden in Gamaliel, their core is the 
sexual drive. These are revealing themselves as perverse hauntings and nightmares. The word nightmare 
it self is directly derived from the conception of the female entity called the hag or mare (being hagridden). 
This is a sexual being that can attack people in dreams. This being is related to the sexual demons the 
incubus (male) and suceubus (female). The tales about these entities are filled with fear since they are 
haunting the individual with his most hidden and most forbidden dreams. The more unbalanced a 
persons S vadhisthana chakra and sexuality is, the more demons are formed and will trouble the sexuality 
and dreams* This is why Chris cans and other religious people (especially those who have taken the vow 
of chastity) have been haunted. These beings will create involuntary orgasms for the victims. An orgasm 
will produce life force and energy. The demons ate working towards the goal of this energy returning 
through th e spheres ro the cote (Kethcr/Thaumiel). The victim who will not follow this process are losing 
his power that are disappearing into the dark and is thus vampirized A darkmagician is working miively 
in this process and are using the sexual demons to excite the dragon force to arise. When having 
confronted his dark dreams, accepted them and gained control over their power, Gamaliel will become 
a very powerful source of power, the demons are no longer vampires but guides. Having sex with spirits 
and demons for the magical progression have been an important practise in many cults through the ages, 
from the Voodoo to the sex magical cult of the infamous Boullan. 

Lilith is the queen of the dark dreams and the demon ruler of Gamaliel. Through the dreams and 
the collective unconscious of man she rules the material plane. She is The Great Mother is the form of 
a spider that weaves the web of destiny and dreams. She represents all dark goddesses of the moon and 
weavers of the web of destiny; the Moires of Greece, Urd, Vcrdandi and Skuld in old norse tradition, the 
Egyptian goddess Neith (that often was viewed as the wife of the god Set) and Kali (the wife of Shiva)* 
She is rime and thus both creator and destroyer. The spider is both a symbol of time and destiny and 
symbol of sin and desires, often in vampnisoc forms. AH people are stuck in the net. A dark magician 


frees himself from the net and becomes a self weaving spider - he learns how to control his destiny. All 
low magic is active though the astral plane (curses, love spells etc). 

Time is one of the basic principles on the manifested side of the light On the dark side time docs not 
exist, butis iscontrolled from there by Liiith or Kali whois the goddess of "KAJLA", Time, which belongs 
to the lunar cycle and menstruation. In witchcraft a triad of goddesses represents the phases of the moon* 
They are Diana, Hera and Hecate, they are ruling new moon, full moon and dark moon respectively. They 
are the virgin, the mother and the old crone (Hecate is also the witch and the goddess of the black arts}. 
Through their phases the are influencing life on earth. To gain the power over time and its phases the 
magician travels to the dark side of the moon - Gamaliel - and finds the black hole in time, TTie vampires 
of the legends are existing on the dark side of the moon - the shadow side of the astral plane - in the worm 
holes of time. The dark side of the moon corresponds to the underworld and the kingdom of the dead. 
It is Hel and Hades, By living in the tunnels that arc connecting the underworld with our world the 
vampires havt learned how to wander between these two worlds. 

In the vampire Eros and Thanatos is united, the principles of sexuality and death The vampire 
includes the basis formulas of Gamaliel and the dark side. Sexuality is the creative power and death is the 
destructive and disintegrating power. When these principles are united the seed of divinity is born where 
time, limitations and dualities have ceased to exist The blood thirst of the vampire follows the moon and 
the blood that the vampire drinks is and represents the monthly. The vampire devours all potential 
existence which gives it new power to live. The vampiristk character of Gamaliel comes from its 
absorbing and transcendenting nature, Gamaliel is the other side of the black hole that ah sorbs all energy 
and draws it to "the other side" ~ Sitra Ahra. The enchantin^y beautiful seductress Lifltfi is its catalyst. 
The journey to Brocken and the witches sabbath is the traditional experience of Gamaliel. During 
violent orgies the power of the sphereis experienced. The goat is centra] - the representative of thephallic 
ecstatic sexuality. He belongs to the next level on the left hand path - Thagirion - the dark side of the sun 
and the shadow of the mental plane. The goat has had a central role in the hermetic ecstasy cults of most 
cultures. He is Set, Shiva and Satan. In Egypt he was worshipped as Ba -Neb Tet, the goat of Mcndez. 
His cult spread to the arabic world and in Europe he became known as BaphomeL The cults around Pan, 
Dionysos and Cernunnos are closely related. The purpose of these cults was to awaken the life force 
through ecstasy. Dances, scat and intoxication with wine and herbs was oftenpart of the ceremonies. The 
Satanic black masses are vanants of these cults- 
Gamaliel is a form of the. womb of Liiith, from which the magician drinks the blood of the moon 
and reaches the trance state of the dream. The witches brew and ointments are concrete forms of this. 
These brews contained herbs that arc both stimulants and hallucinogens; Mandrake root, Belladonna, 
henbane and thorn-apple. In the early ecstatic cults of Shiva die use of the narcotic Soma herb was 
included. Soma is associated with he moon and the spheres that are represented by Gamaliel Gamaliel 
is Babalon (the scarlet woman, the whore of the book of revelations^ who gets drunkon the blood of the 
holy. Her chalice corresponds to the womb of Liiith and the holy Grail that is rilled with the blood of 
Jesus. Utis symbolism is the same as the vampinstic The blood represents the death or transformation 
that brings life and resurrection. The magician becomes drunk on the force of life. The vampire, Babalon 
and the participants at the holy communion are conducting a ritual of the same kind. The witches 
cauldron and the chalice of the magician represents the womb of Liiith and Gamaliel and the mixing of 
the brew is its fertilization by the will of the magician or witch. The finished brew is a demonic child by 
the magician and Liiith who wiU work to achieve what it was created to accomplish. The dreams, visions 
and fantasies of the magician is witch brews of the mind who must be focused and created with great 




knowledge and control if the desired result is to be reached. The second Qlipha of the astralplane Samaci 
is the finished brew, Samael is the poison of God and destroys illusions and limitations. The magician 
will pass through an magical death and "rite de passage" during a intoxication of wisdom and insanity 
The trance will bring him down to the black darkness of the underworld and make him blind, but only 
then can he see and realize the wordless wisdoms that can be found deeper in Sitra Abm. The blind god 
of madness of in the works of H.P Lovecraft, Azathoth can be associated with the Samael Qlipha. After 
the trance of the "Poison of God" the darkrnagician enters the third and final astral Qlipha; A "arab Zaraq 
-the raven of disintegration. The mists of the ignorance of the old life axe lifted. The illusions are drowned 
in a flood of the mind and the magician can experience how the "old reality" are rotting away. When the 
old conceptions have been annihilated the magscian stands before his first and perhaps greatest trial . the 
valley of Paroketh in which he will confront hirnsclE 

Th* Beast 666 

The centre of existence is the level that corresponds to the sun. This is Tiphereth on the Sephiroth and 
Thagirion on the Qliphoch, The personification of Tiphereth is the holy guardian ange! that is described 
by Abra-Melin.The hidden side of the sun is represented by the beast. The numerical value of the beast 
is 666, the number of the sun (the sum of the square of the sun) in numerology. In Qabalism the number 
666 belongs to the sun demon Sorath who is the counterpart to the archangel Michael who rules 
Tiphereth. ' 

Tiphereth-Thagirion represents the Manipura and the Anahata chakra. The first is located at the 
solar plexus level and is symbolized by a yellow lotus flower with ten petals. The other is located at the 
heart levd and is symbolized by a green lotus with twelve petals. These two chakras are ruling the 
instinctive, intuitive and powerful consciousness that characterizes the "fiphcrcth-Thagirian level. They 
are the two sides of the mental plane. Golachab and Gha "agshcblah is two Qliphoths that also belongs 
to the mental plane. They are called The flaming one" and 'The Destroyer". The are representing; 
sexuality and death in the dualism between Eros and Thanatos but are both carrying the seed to the other 
inside them. They arc ruled by Astaroth and Asmodeus, two well known demons who can be found in 
most grimoires from the middle ages. The rites and history around these demonic couple are 
characterized by sexuality and premature death. 

This is the level of enlightenment. It is from this state that most prophets and guides have been 
active. On this level the magician becomes one with his self and can use the whole of its power and 
consciousness. Many are blinded by the sun and are stuck here. The energy of the sun is so strong mat 
the magician can not see that this is only half way to the goal. Many believe that this is the goal and stays 
here. With the power of the sun the magician can control his old world but can not create new ones. To 
be able to create new worlds the magician must become a god and this happens when he dies at the abyss 
at the highest level and reaches Thaumiel. If the cave of Iilith is the crack in the shell of the fruit, 
Thagirion is die seed - the true self, the complete ego, Inside the seed the pure power can be found. This 
is released first when the shell of the seed has disappeared, something that occurs at the great abyss. When 
the magician has become a god he creates his own universe, his own tree of life and have fulfilled the 
development that is begun when the serpent offers the fruits of knowledge. 

Many have reached their demise on the sun level when they have beEeved that this is the divine 
IcveL One example of this is Nazi-Germany They had the swastika, a sun symbol as their main symbol 
and many other sun symbols, The swastika indicates a movement either to the right (clockwise) or left 



(counter clockwise), meaning die sun or the black sun. The Nazis used the counter clockwise swastika 
and they tried to use the power of the beast and the power of phallic ecstasy. The sun cross is the sign of 
die beast. Even though he completely failed to handle this power, Hider described it in an interesting way: 
"Kraft durch freude" - power through joy. Ecstatic joy and a feeling of freedom, happiness and power. 
Under a shining sun two naked children have left Paroketh and all its limitations behind. Only through 
die power of joy can the magician reach through "the lesser abyss". When the magician have transcended 
into the sun and the mental plane, he must see the adventure and the comical side aU to succeed. 
The magician must be in touch with his guardian angel (guide or totem) before entering Thagirion. 


If the Beast is not balanced by Tiphereth it will be beyond control and instead of becoming the 
consciousness of the magician it will tear him apart. The Egyptian god Cheperais one of the main symbols 
of the perfect process. He is the holy scarab who rolls the sun in front of him and keeps its force under 
controL Thagkion is wisdom of pure instinct. The magician becomes the holy animal. Hie beast is the 
totem of the magician and they are as one. He is the ecstatic force that have been connected to Pan, 
Pashupati, Dionysos and Ban -Neb-Tet, gods who arc representing the power of wild beasts, sexuality, the 
carnal, intoxication and ecstasy. 

According to the Qabalah this sphere is ruled by Belphegor and Chiva who is the magical child of 
the male and female principles of the Qliphoth - Samael and Iilith. Tiphereth corresponds to Christ. The 
Anti-Christ, who is supposed to arrive with the pn jphecies of the darkpath is active through Thaginon, 
The Anti-Christ represents the Beast 666 and is the channel and active force of the Dragon. We can read 
in the Book of Revelations 13:2 " „and the Dragon gave unto the Beast, his power and his throne and 
it authority". To bear the mark of the Beast in the forehead (as described in the Book of Revelations) 
and on the right hand, means that one is letting this power work in thoughts as well as in actions. 

Between the highest divine level and the lower there is an abyss. On the Sephiroth this is an enormous 
gap that leads down to the dark side. On the Qliphoth the abyss does not exist in the same way. It is not 
something that one falls into but rather something one can pass over or use to climb up. But the levels 
arc separated also on the dark side. This can be likened with die river that divides the darkest centre of 
the underworld with the parrs around. 

When passing through the abyss the magician dies (symbolically or actually) as a limited self. He 
transforms to become a pure experiencing force without any limits for the true will. He becomes a god. 

*" ' ' Bill* 

On the Sephiroth the mystic rises up in a passive eternity, but the dark side brings an active eternity. 

Physically the abyss is represented by the neck and the throat, the part where the spine enters the 
brain. Here is the Vishuddhi chakra that is symbolized by a blue lotus with sis teen petals. In the abyss 
there are deities like Abaddon, the angel of the abyss and Choronzon. They are devouring ihc corpse of 

the limited Self that the magician leaves behind. This corpse must die and the magician must transcend 

beyond it 

The eye of Lucifer 

The divine levd on the path of the nigh side is reached when The Allseeing Eye is opened. The universe 
is torn apart and the illusions arc destroyed The magician becomes a god and a creator. The true will can 
be expressed and fulfilled, The universe is inverted: blade becomes white, non-existence become 
existence. A black hokis created and agate is opened to a Universe B. This levelis to distant to understand 
from a human perspective. 



Tl?€ DARk GlfT 


The draconian mysteries contain teachings about vampirism and the reality behind the myths of the 
undcad. Vampirism describes many interesting psychological and existential phenomena*. In one sense 
the vampire is an alchemist that have discovered elixir vitac, the elixir of life in blood and defeated 
death, but the vampire is also united with death and has gone into a pact with the grim reaper. Another 
form of vampire is the one who is dependent of lire, who refuses to let go of the world of the living and 
is obsessed with drinking from the spring of life - the blood. "This vampire is like the drug addict a slave 
under one big desire that erases everything else. Jn the vampire myths we encounter numerous erotic 
aspects. The vampire h an exotic entity that instead of fertilizing its object, kills it. The victim gives 
himself totally to the vampire in the ultimate masochistic rapture. But at the same time the vampire is 
a slave under the victim, it can not exist without the victims life force. The vampire unites Eros and 
Thanatos, the concepts of sexuality and death which are counterparts but also twins. A study of the 
vampire leads to deeper knowledge concerning the secrets of these concepts. In the system of Dragon 
Rouge there is four different types of vampires. 

1. The ghost vampire or the "ordinary" vampire. This is the traditional vampire of the myths who for 
some reason is captured in the world of the living without being part of it. Eternal life is a curse for this 
vampire. It lives alone and outside the world of the living but is forced to exist in its shadow to survive. 
This vampire lives like a ghost or phantom in a world between the earthly regions and the astral level. 
According to myths ghosts get stuck here when they arc not letting go of life> maybe because they have 
unfinished business on earth. The might not wane to leave their family, loved ones or the house they 
have Lived in all their life. They will become "house ghosts" that can be found in old houses, castles or 
temples. The vampire tries to keep a physical existence and can create a false human body by sucking 
life force (blood) from the living. The physical existence of the vampire is an illusion which makes it 
invisible in mirrors, This is the tragic vampire that is relieved from its terrible fate only when a stake is 
driven through its heart. 

Z The astral vampire magician. Some magicians who axe advanced astral travellers visits sleeping per- 
sons and takes energy from them. Often through astral sexual activities tha: can give the victim so 
called "wet dreams". The orgasm of the victim releases a great deal of energy that is absorbed by the 
vampire. Some magicians absorbs energy in this way also when having physical sex. The astral vampire 
magician is usually obsessed with the astral wodds and needs new power and new kicks to remain here. 
The astral body is made extremely strong through the life force of the victims. The vampire magician 
might also create an astral world of its own and needs even more power. If it would accumulate more of 
its own power it would gain access to the higher levels beyond the astral spheres. The astral vampire 
magician avoids this because it wants to stay on the astral level. Its drive force is usually sexual and it 
dwells in a world of perversions and erotic obsessions. It exists in the dusk world between the astral and 
the material world. This vampire can have a physical existence. It is then common chat it lives an 
isolated and antisocial lire where the obsessions are expressed in fantasies on this level. But this vampire 
can also be a social person with a charming personality that lives one lire during the day and changes 
when the night arrives. During the day the vampire can select the victims to visit at night. The astral 
vampire magician is a kind of incubus or succubus: a sexual demon that visits people in their dreams. 
The word nightmare {being hagridden) comes from dreams about the hag or marc.TTic astral vampire 




magician is socializing with other beings on die asual level (often sexual entities like nymphs and satyrs 
etc) while having few or no friends on the earthly level. In time this vampire might be trapped in the 
astral level and is then becoming a vampire of the first category. 

3. The vampire &f the abyss* The most frightening form of vampirism is connected with die qabalistic 
abyss. White magicians or other right hand pith magicians might end up trapped in the abyss if the fail 
with their quest. Dark magicians can nor fell down into the abyss since they are already travelling in the 
qjiphotic tunnels underneath. The abyss leads down to the Qiiphoth and "the other side**, Sitra Ahra. 
When the white magician is crossing the abyss all individuality and identification must be left behind. 
This is the hardest task on the right hand path and many magicians perish here. They are unable to 
leave the abyss of death and return to life that was before or pass until the last pieces of what is left of 
individuality has been left behind. Many white magicians is here against their will turned into 
magicians" and are forced to suck force and individuality from victims in life below the abyss; this 
because they refuse to let go of their ego and individuality though the abyss consumes this, This is a 
very powerful vampire with great wisdom, and at the same time being in despair, desperate and completely 
ruthless. Only when it is annihilated by the light of Kether and is guided into the spiritual level can it 
reach salvation. 

4, The shadow vampire or the aliphatic vampire. This is the most powerful vampire, but also the most 
mystical. This vampire is a dark magician that has let go of the body of light to the shadow (not the 
psychological) or the anti-self. This vampire has opened a black hole in his own existence and transfers 
all life T all light and all energy that it can get into "the other side". A gnostic metaphor tells us that our 
creator was a shadow vampire in an other universe and drained in of energy to create our universe. 

The vampiristic initiation is something a magician goes through on die astral level. Here a mapcian 
can meet the legends of the vampire in different forms. This vampyrism is pan of the Dragon Order. 
The initiation of the Dragon Order begins at the qliphotic Samael level 3.0. In the vampiristic initia- 
tion a magician learns to see the bonds of life and death and to explore the secrets of the blood on the 
way to the experience of eternal life. This is an alchemical process with roots in the dark mysteries from 
ancient Egypt. This initiation is sometimes called "the dark gjft", and its knowledge is a bittersweet 
insight of death and life, cruelty and the erotic, reality and the tale. 

Demon lovers, incubus and succubus represents one form of astral vampires.

Tt>e cjLipftonc IM VOCATIONS 

For most darkmagiciansitis no use trying to work with Qliphodc powers from Thagirion and the spheres 
beyond. Only when the magician has passed the veil of Paroketh can workings with the higher spheres 
be recommended It could be done with help from more advances and experienced magicians. Otherwise 
the magicians might be overthrown by this enormous powers. But hopefully nothing at all wou J d happen. 
A magician evoked thedemon Gorarar under supervision of more advanced magician. This demon 
belongs to the Golachab Qlipha. The contact with this force opened a link chat the unexperienced 
magician could not dose. He was haunted by negative energies and disturbing lesser demons that are 
working under Gorarar. IF the magician has passed the veil of Paroketh he could not have been haunted 

as badly. 

The greatest danger when working with the Qliphoth is that the magician does not understand 
what he is working with since the forces are so abstract The Qliphoth is constandy trying to possess the 
magician. If a magician would only for one second be afflicted by an involuntary possession of powers 
that arc beyond what he can understand and control, the risk of madness is great. That riskis present in 
all Qliphodc work, this is why a magician must be very careful in all wotk with Qliphodc powers. 

We will here present die first two (of 11) of the Qliphotic invocations. The Lihth and Naamah 
invocations. Also with these invocations the magician must be careful. If they arc used without toped 
and direction they can disturb the magician almost like a curse. The Luith/Naamah invocation can bring 
the magician into a unpleasant isolation and a materialistic ghost existence* The Gamaliel/Iilith 
invocation can lead to vampirism, sexual exhaustion, impotence and perversion. But the Qliphoth is also 
the greatest source of power and wisdom, if the magical work is serious. It is the enormous powers that 
have made the Qliphoth so feared. 

In these invocations the magician lights eleven black candles and there should be a eleven pointed 
star at the altar. The magician purifies himself and then the temple. Then the demonic incense is lit The 
magician should mediate on how the power is arising inside him. The thoughts should be concentrated 
to the part of the brain that is called the reptile brain, in the back of the head. When the power is is 
awakened and the thoughts are gathered in the reptile brain the invocation should be read.
