in relation to my runeworking, How do i inscribe the necessary runes onto the tools i will be consecrating and using solely in my rune work?

would it be acceptable to use (unconsecrated) tools i already own to do this? or would it be better to get new ones and consecrate them, without inscribing anything on them, and if so, would it be sacrilege to then use those once used tools for day to day use or should i keep them so i end up with two sets of ritual tools, one inscribed and one plain?


The answer to this will be a debate (at least with some of the people I know). Personally a tool is a tool. I have a "Hammer" that I use in ritual I have also used it to drive tent stakes in the ground. My ritual athame is razor sharp and if I needed to I would use it in the kitchen. The Vikings used their everyday tools to do both religious work as well as house work. If it was good enough for them its good enough for me. If I need to make a strictly magical item I create it then consecrate the item after.

The debate comes from Traditional magic vs eclectic magic.

so basicly your saying that if i want to create a set of consicrated tools for carvig/colouring runes etc there would be no problem in using the tools i alreasdy have to create these?

this is what some other people i have asked have said as well so it seems that this is the way to go, thanks for the advise.

Magical Revival :
Occultism and the Culture of
Regeneration in Britain,
Circa 1880-1929

by Jennifer Walters

A thesis submitted for the
Degree of Doctor of Philosophy
Department of English Studies
University of Stirling
2007

Abstract

This thesis is a cultural study of the
Magical Revival that occurred in Britain,
1880-1929.

Magical Revival denotes a period in the
history of occultism, and the cultural
history of Britain, during which an
upsurge in interest in occult and magical
ideas is marked by the emergence of
newly-formed societies dedicated to the
exploration of the occult, and into its
bearing on life.

Organisations discussed are the Theosophical
Society, the Golden Dawn, and the less
well known Astrum Argentum <sic>.
( Argenteum Astrum )

'Magical Revival' has further significance
as the principal, but overlooked, aim of
those societies and individuals was
regeneration.

Scholarship on late nineteenth- and early
twentieth-century occultism is influenced
by a longstanding preference for the
esoteric over the exoteric aspects of
occultism. It has tended to emphasise
themes of abstraction, the psychological,
and the esoteric, and has promulgated a
view of occultism as static and impervious.

From the outset, however, this thesis
argues that approaching the Magical Revival
from the purview of the esoteric is limiting,
and that it screens its own significant
themes and affinities with mainstream
culture.

It suggests that what needs to be prepared
is a study which reads occultism with a
close attention to its own terms of
engagement and description.

This is the aim of this thesis.

The thesis offers a way of reading the
occult activity of the period that privileges
its exotericism. It seeks to pursue the
links between an identifiable culture of
occultism and conventional cultural
discourses and activities towards an
understanding of the movement as one
actively constituting itself and producing,
rather than obscuring, knowledge in
relation to the social and cultural moment
from which it arose.

The occult topics and tendencies identified
include evolution; ceremonial magic and
astral travel; the body in occultism; and
the nature of the occult experience.

Others include the life and medical
sciences; the philosophy of religion; and
physical culture.

The following questions underpin the thesis:

In what ways did the Magical Revival connect
with contemporary concerns?

What does its activities, written records,
literary and other material productions
reveal about the nature of those connections?

What does a closer attention to the textual
and lived culture of the Magical Revival
contribute to existing understanding of
its place in late nineteenth- and early
twentieth-century culture?

In answering those questions the thesis
proposes that, in its systematic
identification and addressing of cultural
and social needs, general and specific,
the Magical Revival should be viewed as
closer to the social mainstream than is
presently appreciated.

Moreover, that the occultists’ efforts
towards individual and cultural
regeneration, take place within a broader
cultural movement away from social thought
dominated by degeneration, towards thinking
directed towards regeneration.

Please excuse my late arrival. I would like to formally request membership into The Esoteric Order of the Brazen Dawn. I have studied the paranormal since I was a small child and believe I might have somethings to contribute to the group.

I have done a search here for a mysterious figure in history which is none other than The Count of St. Germain with no results. Please forgive me if he has been discussed here on the forum before.

I always thought that the character Dorian Gray had some similarity's of The Count of Saint Germain.
Was Oscar Wilde inspired by the strange tales of the Count being immortal? Does the Count walk among us today?
And if so who or what is the Count?

I agree that it is rather more than likely
that Wilde was inspired by tales of the
Rosicrucian Adepti, and it is quite possible
that he indirectly drew upon the legend of
Sanctus Germanus by way of Edward
Bulwer-Lytton's Zanoni.

In that story ( which opens during the
Revolution - it is said that St. Germain
was in Paris at that time ) Zanoni's
master goes by the name Mejnor,
which is an anagram of Jermon.

So I am giving a talk at the Asylum in Lincoln on mesmerism. What would you like to know about the art? I plan on giving an introduction to Mesmer and his predessors, and the actual pocess of mesmerism itself. I will then talk about how it progressed into Victorian society and its three main uses as described in my Masters disertation (medical, spiritual and villainy) in both literary and factual accounts. I want to use some quite extraordinary examples and make it a bit light hearted and weird. I mean, if you knew nothing of mesmerism, etherology or psychic ability, what would you want to know? How can I make this engaging without a practical demonstration?

Ah - you are referring, I think, to the Divine
Guardians of this Order, who 'journey as upon
the Winds, strike where no man strikes, and
slay where no man slays'
?

We had to break them of that abominable habit
when we went "open source", as it were.

Please feel free to divulge anything you like

blank stares in advance.
