Re: Introductions Hello Everyone,

  My name is Km Anu, I am 25, I live in the frozen north. I worship those in the starts to better know myself, and so far that's going great. My current focus is expression in all aspects of life. Expression of will, expression of desire, expression of passion, ect. I believe expression to be the most powerful modality for causing change and an amazing tool for thought transmutation. I questioned Catholicism at the age of 19 in 2013, discovered Zen, tantra, alchemy, eventually Wicca and now I think I'm just a pile of those things. Most of my techniques are self taught or developed, I don't have many teachers. I have a partner that is less internet active, but she specializes in music whereas I lean towards visual arts and aestheticism.  Furthermore, I try and be trans formative and malleable. I have observed connections in my life with Deities and Daimon, and learned much from them and the books I read. Sometimes I produce instructional literature on my techniques. I am excited to join a community of people that seem like-minded and serious, and am excited to work with all of you. Thank you for your presence and for accepting mine.

Re: The Anthology of Km Anu

This is the language of it, an any modality guide to creating effective sigils for more than one use, and the first step to developing a personal alphabet of desire or language of the inner realm.

Atlantis I've tried not to really form an opinion but just idle web browsing led me down a bit of a rabbit hole, and now I'm here. seems like it hasn't been very thoroughly investigated. Any thoughts?

More sigils, helping someone on reddit. I have ADHD and I often create confusing educational material. Someone was asking help with the language of it, so here's what we got

Re: The Anthology of Km Anu Good morning,

  I spend much of my time trying to relate my current occult practice to my job and enriching the lives of my patients. Over the last five years, I've made quite the comprehensive doctrine of mental illness and will in my head, but have never had a reason to write any of it down anywhere. And being a person that experiences mental illness, this doesn't seem very fair. For example, anxiety is a phenomenon that is common in my day to day life and I often see it as one of those tacked on effects of more severe mental illness, but I suspect it likely a cause. People attribute anxiety to stress but in reality there are many different kinds of stress and anxiety is only one effect of many varying stressors a person can have. There are certain truths I can speak having experienced them directly and they are as follows.

 Self confidence is an attribute of will. Will in and of itself is a difficult concept to properly elucidate, simply because it means many things to many people, especially in the occult. I would say that most of the herd confuses will with motivation, when in fact motivation is a feature of will along with other sensations or mind states to include hyperactive, upset, confused, ect. These are all motivators of will. Will to me in this moment and for this writing is defined as a person's mental ability to initiate and complete change either within or without themselves. I see many people with mental illness day in and down out struggle with personal confidence and as a result their will is stunted. Furthermore many of these severe cases do not have support from their peers or community. We all know what it feels like to be rejected, but many people who frequent short term acute care facilities lack acceptance from ANY community to include family, neighbors, work if they can even find it, ect. Independence is taken over time and they forget their own capacity for change. Most lay people can't just change their minds about how they feel about a moral concept when upset, even if they have an amazing system to re-enforce their will. Basically, if you do not care for yourself, and everyone tells you can't care for yourself that consensus will become your reality. Thoughts become actions, actions become manifest thoughts, and the whole thing starts over again in reverse. A truly kind and compassionate person cares not for the destitute or decides to accept them. They would harden the will of the lost or leave them alone all together. The givers give improperly, I would know I am one of them. Only by become humble before those we see as weak can we lift them to a place of self love. Love the self and so love the world :facepalm:

Re: The Anthology of Km Anu YES!!!

So I went through a trans formative period in my life at 18 that was plagued with strange symbolic dreams containing reoccurring symbolism I still experience to this day. Often I see a dark-haired lighter skinned (Like me, kind of red toned but slightly brown) woman with grey eyes. Almost always on a beach with black sands and a really big blue colored moon. Whats neat is that I kept extensive journals of this period as I was in military school with nothing to do. Unfortunately I later began to believe them cursed and gave them to my mom to hold on to, now they're somewhere in her cluttered house.

The big bummer for me is the lost of the symbols, especially considering my expression-based focus as of late.

Chamber of Night Good morning,

  A while ago I experimented with a legal psychoactive plant called sinicuichi. This was macerated for two weeks and ingested with some grapefruit juice and a little of the spirit used for the extraction. The resulting trip was odd, mild, mostly uneventful, and relaxing. I found the effect to be sort of like being in the sunken place from get out. My vision was a little tunneled and sounds sounded extremely distant. The effect was similar to being in an empty church with someone talking elsewhere. I am working on combining this with my rite of reflection (I know, I've yet to release that) but keep running into things that need their own guides. Hopefully everything will be done by the 15th.

The development of internal language and symbolism I’ve been trying to refine my current study focus lately and realized that I place a lot of importance on personalization of my techniques. I feel like this makes them more direct, effective, immediate, and their results easily recognized. I can say conclusively that inner discovery improves practice in the SUBJECTIVE realms.

I’ve also observed that many people will adopt a personal philosophy/ cosmology that they best identify with. It makes sense, if you’re going to commune with the world you want to be speaking the same language, but many people struggle with what that language is.

I suppose what I’m getting at is obvious. I’ve been doing a lot of sigil work in these past few years and developing and maintaining an Alphabet of Desire, or constructed magical language to use in ritual based on sigil mantras I have created in the past. Applying the Semiotic model of magic, selection of identifiable symbols is easy when you invented the symbols. Furthermore, any spoken oration during ritual bears far more command, both over the self and the object. I was wondering if anyone else has had experience in this sort of personalization, and how much you feel it has improved your practice. Furthermore, does anyone take these concepts farther? If it’s possible to change the dialect of internal communication to maximize its effectiveness, is it also more effective to change the concepts considered themselves? To what degree are things in our worlds defined by the language we use to identify them, and can changing that language have a meaningful effect?

Re: Left Hand Path Quotes

Reminds me of part of Metallica's The Thing That Should Not Be:

Not dead which eternal lie
Stranger eons death may die

What a slick pop-culture Lovecraft nod. Napster aside, I love Metallica.
