"He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery." And these words are as true to-day as at
the time they were first written. Without this Master-Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of The Temple." ~
Alchemy is very real and is wielded within this world in order to become more creators of cause and less pawns of effect by many including myself with
much success. Yet, alchemy in truth, is not what many have come to believe it is. It does not possess the characteristics of what many in the new age
movement believe it entails. Many people seem to mistakenly place more emphasis on the power of the ritual itself instead of the power of
awareness within the mind that entertains such ideas, and therefore often miss the mark when attempting to apply magic rituals, prayer, or
new age teachings such as the law of attraction. Many who do not understand the nature of mind will end up philosophizing about metaphysics without
much else to show for their knowledge in their lives - they lack wisdom due to having no means of weighing it empirically.
Intention is the crux of all manifestation. And beliefs, both conscious and unconscious, act as commandments. When one truly possesses the knowledge
of transcendence arrived at by interior intuitive means (Gnosis) as to the how and why the nature of mind that makes up the fibre of one's Being
interconnects and interpenetrates with the fabric of reality, they will easily come to understand why rituals in of itself are only a placebo, an act,
or a tool for the magician to invoke the divine imagination and nothing more.
True magic refers to the fact our beliefs affect the physical world around us and in turn our personal life experiences. Beliefs exist within the
subjective mind as thoughts and when sublimed by the divine imagination and deep emotional intensity, it will leave an impression on the
subconscious mind - the weaver of experiences - by way of synchronicity - which in turn influence our reality in order for us to experience the
consequences of our actions. All beliefs are subjective thought forms and/or imaginings that possess an associated mental and emotional vibration, and
when formed in alignment with our intent, it will influence our environment, or the outer world of appearances we interpret as our personal life
However, the magician is always aware that consciousness is the Alpha and the Omega (the mover) and not the ritual itself. Even prayer and Solomon's
magick, which I have empirically weighed with much success many times over in my life, are only placebos and/or tools for the divine imagination to be
invoked in order to nurture deep seeded faith which is the crux of all intention or desire becoming manifested. After all, one must believe
deeply in something in order for magic to work if one has not come to truly Know Thyself. That is to say, alchemy, no matter the technique, craft, or
ritual, begins and ends with consciousness. And when one comes to this understanding through Gnosis, they usually create their own personal rituals
with complete knowledge that it is simply all an act to engage the divine imagination. Many who possess this gnosis will often do away with
complicated rituals altogether and simply go to sleep with deep gratitude for the unseen as if it were seen in order to impress the subconscious mind
and will wake up feeling naturally grateful without the conscious mind having to invoke with much effort such thoughts and feelings due to the fact
the seed of desire has been firmly planted into the fertile soil of the subconscious mind as they slept. They will possess deep faith or a deep
sense of knowing that their imaginings will be reflected back to them through synchronicity in its own time.
Everything one imagines is real, especially when it comes to archetypes of the subconscious mind that is steeped in centuries of practice and
cemented into the collective unconscious. A magician's power arises from their Spiritual Imagination.
Never compromise and never fear anything for all exist within your awareness and never the other way around.
Again, all that one imagines is real. The degree of emotional intensity influences the degree to which one's desires will be objectively realized.
Magick when stripped down to its core relies on how deeply one believes in thy will be done on earth (physicality) as it is in heaven
(imagination). As Above; So Below. As Within; So Without.
Everything is imagination.
"Man is all imagination, the eternal body of man is imagination" ~ William Blake

'The Key to SOLOMON'S KEY' (PDF) by Lon Milo Duquette
I left "a key" out. One must KNOW what they want. Many "think" they know what they want but in reality they do not. Also, many do not know thyself
enough, or understand the nature of mind and how it interconnects and interpenetrates with reality (mind over matter) and therefore fail to nurture
that seed of faith due to ignorance. They live by "seeing is believing" instead of "believing is seeing". Therefore, deep down many are only fooling
themselves and will continue to miss the mark. Also, many make the mistake of choosing too many things and never imagine a grand
experience that includes all the little dreams.
Most do not believe in what I'm attempting to share here at all, or will not be able to connect the dots, and will continue to daily commute
their existence away in mundane fashion.
"Imagination rules the world, the human race is governed by its imagination"- Napolean Bonaparte
BELIEVE in something, just ONE thing, stick to it, and allow the subconscious or whatever force you choose to believe in (God if you are the
religious type, etc) to do the rest.
Thank you for taking the time and energy to read. I wish you all a very good life.
ETA: The link to "The key to Solomon's Key" by Lon Milo Duquette seems to be broken. If you search for the PDF it will come up. Good read for
beginners. Tyler Perry's video is all you really need to understand tho.

Although what you say is true I tend to stay away from the terms you use. The terms Alchemy and Magick have been twisted in two directions. Physical
For the one's who believe in the physical practices they are deceiving themselves. For the Occult they are deceiving themselves by believing that they
can manifest spiritual influence over others. Often times they implore rituals of power that separate themselves from their true nature.
It is possible to focus on what stands against the Devine nature and achieve false enlightenment, which is why I tend to stay away from the terms that
you are using.
One may achieve a position of influence as a result of will, but under the pretext of magick and alchemy it is associated with the occult and not the
type of magick and alchemy that I believe you are speaking of. Practitioners of the Occult typically have very limited understanding of their own
true nature, power and enlightenment.
They use what they know more like a beast uses his strength to take down a meal. They fail to reach any type of advancement in beneficial gnosis. The
true message behind "Know Thyself".
If influence of others outside of attaining a position of leadership was possible through magick and and alchemy one wouldn't need the magick known as

The ones that are designed to steer you away from the truth are never what they appear to be.
This is TPTB's primary focus, to keep you from finding the truth.

It happened to a friend of mine when I was in highschool. He told me what he was going to read and said he would read it audibly. I told him to stay
away from anything like that but he didn't listen. He went insane and is still in a mental institution. He came to me for help after it happened, but
he was already too far gone. He was terrified for his life and his soul.

Why open up a pandora's box of darkness? I have seen the effects Satanism and Black Magic has on a person. Usually ends up in possession whether the
possessed person realizes it or not. I feel like I have lost my own mother to the powers of darkness. Your life begins a rapid downward spiral. Stay
away! Try communicating with God who brings true wisdom, peace and happiness and salvation. Beneficial food for the soul.
Occultist and medium Dion Fortune's nervous breakdown and her early death due to her use of magick is also another major red flag.
The best way I have found to learn about these things is by studying the lives of those who have seen and experienced firsthand both the counterfeit
and the genuine.:
The end result of using Magick and ouija boards are both the same as well...
Demons, just like vacuum cleaner salesmen, will use ANY doorway you leave open.
DO NOT DO IT you will regret it believe me. Do not play with thes things it is a doorway to Hell. I was possessed by a demon after dabbling in the
occult and thought these were fun.This demon drove me to try and commit suicide.
A girl I know CLAWED HER FACE TO PIECES after playing with a Ouiji board. She went crazy!!!!!. PLEASE guys just don't even go
there. These things are bad news. Source
Once you use the damn thing, you let
your door open to evil spirits. A friend of mine used it a long time ago and now she's in a hospital. She starts talking about a tall black thing that
watches her and talks to her. She regrets using the Ouija board. Source
stress enough than to ask you DO NOT USE THIS all this does is open up the world of dark spirits my aunt was with a group of high school students they
did this 1 student died 1 student went missing and my aunty was put into a mental institution for the rest of her life you can never close this curse
once the board is in action it will never stop and it meaning the spirits will kill thats all they want
sounds like this is essentially just manifest destiny idea again, i'm curious what is your opinion about two individuals with conflicting manifest
destinies? does the stronger one win? stronger in what sense? how is that measured?
and if conflicting intentions can hamper your results then wouldnt societies shared view of the way the world is structured essentially be an anchor
preventing you from having any success in trying to counter it?
also, can multiple people combine their efforts? does combined intention in a group increases results?
also, how do you explain unexpected things happening to people? example sinkhole swallows up a house family dies, would you say someone in that family
was expecting/intending to be swallowed by a sinkhole?
if your answer is that random things can still happen then i ask about lottery winners, are they all a measure if intention VS lack therof? or are
some of them just actually lucky and hit it randomly?
Im honestly gonna say, i think you read the book on your own terms. You just have **** load of knowledge but you aint building anything. How do you
know what right or wrong if you dont try it? Like the chemist you know nothing about history, like the physicist who knows nothing about chemistry.
You are just gonna get lost, and teach, well.... words.

A lot of what the O.P. is talking about is psychology. He's talking about how the mind works and how to turn thoughts into actions, and about how what
you believe shapes your actions and how you perceive things. These are all scientific ideas. The O.P. isn't saying that there is fire magic out there
or something. He talks about how rituals are a tool to focus the mind on a particular outcome, which makes sense, as working with the hands and doing
rituals would focus the mind on that outcome and how to get it.

The rituals are as important cause humans are monkeys who has an imagination of gigantic proportions, if i take a dump, dont wash my hands, i can make
people sick. If i use it as a teaching with something divine, those monkeys are gonna make it into a ritual if i can make it to a symbolic gesture
with a deity.
Anything that makes people sick, you make it into a divine lecture of sterility.
Most religions has their customs, most religious people dont know why, including the teachers. They teach a dogma, but never take the time to
understand why nor to explain why.
When you need rituals to use common sense you better have religion close. The majority of Swedes uses hand sanitizer. A one meter perimeter, dont sit
close. Cause humans are disgusting when it comes to personal hygiene.
Im all for any religion, but if we make a new, we maybe should start at the bottom instead of staring us blind into the future.
