Magic is the Key

secretsoftheserpent

Every organism depends on its environment for success and growth. A person needs to make sense out of his or her world, when that need is frustrated again and again, you get what you see in the world today. Everywhere you have people telling others they can’t do that because they are not good enough, they are not good-looking enough or they are not smart enough. People treat others they way they treat themselves. That voice in our head is judging us all the time. This means we are in this environment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No wonder we can’t grow.

Amulets, Talismans, and Religious Beliefs

Sapphires figure prominently in numerous beliefs and traditions, both past and present.  For centuries, sapphires have been used for alchemy, magic, healing rituals, and astrological prognostication.

Early priests and scholars believed that precious gemstones, including sapphires, had specific “virtues” that could be used to benefit man if their powers were properly harnessed. According to legend, Helen of Troy (c. 12th century B.C.) owned a large star sapphire, which was believed to hold the key to her desirability. The famous “seal” of King Solomon (c. 1000-931 B.C.) was legendary, not only because it was an inscribed sapphire, but also because it apparently gave him power over spirits in the air, earth, and underworld.

During the Hellenistic period (400-100 B.C.) when gemstones were associated with specific deities or occult powers, sapphires were routinely inscribed with the head of Jupiter (Zeus), the god of the sky. During this…

Salamander

secretsoftheserpent

I love the symbol of the salamander. The salamander is a symbol cloaked in mystery. This symbol is another alchemical symbol that everyone is taking literally. I even read an article about how the ancients were wrong about the salamander. In truth the symbol of the salamander was a battle of wits between ancient philosophers. The word salamander means ‘fire within’. This should have been the first hint the ancients were not talking about the natural salamander.

Higher Self

secretsoftheserpent

Most of you know I am not a fan of religion.  That is putting it mildly.   I’m going to be straight, this world would be a lot better place if religion were gone. How can I say that? Religion keeps you from knowing your Higher Self. Religion works because in your memory you have a feeling of wholeness. The fall of the gods and goddesses in all the myths is us. We have fallen from wholeness into this meaty body. Religion was created so we can’t figure out how powerful we actually are. With religion we think we are taken care of and someone else is in charge of our lives. Let me ask you something. When we raise our kids, do we try to get them to think for themselves? Do we want them to run to us every time they have a problem, like when they were…

Giants

secretsoftheserpent

I have shown in previous posts how giants in myths are usually showing a very big ego, but myths go several layers deep with truth and giants are no exception. In Lemurian Magic, I showed how an advanced alien race created the human race. They created a first race of humans that were just as big and smart as themselves. In all the myths the giants are frequently in conflict with the gods. In religious texts, the Nephilim, are seen as evil fallen angels. Did these giants exist? This post will show proof they did exist, but in no way were they evil. The idea that they were evil comes from lies of patriarch religions.

Living Magically

secretsoftheserpent

Living magically is the state of living mentally active rather than passive. It is knowing what goes into our subconscious rather letting someone plant ideas in our head. It is the ability to look at the world through fresh eyes. It is being consciously aware of all our actions, goals and interests. It is the willingness to confront our perceptions and be willing to change if needed. It is expanding your awareness and understanding both internal and external worlds. It is the commitment to seek and see with our own eyes and mind. To know the difference between real and unreal, truth and untruths. Understanding the reality you live in is very real.

Mother and Child

secretsoftheserpent

What is this Mother and Child Pose all about? Every religion has some kind of mother posing with her child, usually male, on her lap. Mary has Jesus in her lap, Mother Yashoda has Krishna in her lap and many more have a god child in the lap or their mother. There were even religions that worshipped the Mother and Child. It all goes back to Isis with the suckling Horus in her lap, but what is this symbol trying to tell us?

Evil Eye

secretsoftheserpent

The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune and injury. All the talismans created are basically for fighting fire with fire because they are called the ‘evil eye’ too. People with green eyes were said to be the main perpetrators of this misfortune, so they are said to be ‘green with envy’.

Angels

secretsoftheserpent

An angel, according to religions, is a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence. Some angels are good and some are bad. They even battle each other and god has to step in to make peace between them. As you will see, there is nothing heavenly about these beings and they are described as superior to humans because the people they are supposed to represent think they are above us.

Tuatha De Danann

secretsoftheserpent

Most of what we know about the Tuatha De Danann is from a text called Lebor Gabala Erenn(The Book of the Taking of Ireland). Better known as The Book of Invasions. This book was written by christian monks and was put together as late as the 11th century. Here we go again with the 11th century. King Arthur legends and the Norse Eddas were all written in or around the 11th century. How foolish do the royals and religions think we are? The Tuatha De Danann were the first to Ireland and I’m about to show you why. Good thing these christian scribes didn’t really understand what they were actually writing or true history would be gone.
