Season of the Witch



Darksome night and Shining Moon,

East, then South, then West, then North,

Harken to the Witches Rune:

Here come I to call thee forth.


Earth and Water,

Air and Fire,

Wand and Pentacle and Sword,

Work ye unto my desire,

Harken ye unto my word.

Cords and Censer, Scourge and Knife,

Powers of the Witches Blade,

Waken all ye into life,

Come ye as the Charm is made:

Queen of Heaven, Queen of Hell,

Horned Hunter of the Night,

Lend your power unto the Spell,

Work my will by Magic Rite.

Neopaganism is based on the ancient worldwide religion of Mother Nature.

It is unlikely that much of the original thought structure truly remains of the ancient worldwide religion of Mother Nature.

There is no set dogma in Neopaganism as each cell of Nature worshipers devises its own belief systems and rituals.

Rituals will be largely dependent on environmental conditions within which the cult resides and ritual takes place.

Belief systems will be dependent on the thought process' and mindset of the members of each unique coven, in turn, dependent on local Goth.

Since Nature takes a central role in these groups dogma is modeled more closely on easily identified aspects of Nature.



the devine manifest in all reality


True Neopaganism springs from outside Abrahamic religious thought and attempts to free the female psyche from the psychic bonds of Yahweh.

True Neopaganism uses magik ritual to change internal perception through recognition of unseen aspects and patterns within Nature.

True Neopaganism has no use for the complex rituals devised by Ordo Templi Orientis of Theodor Reuss or the Theosophical Society of Aleister Crowley to be enacted in a temple setting no different than that of the typical cathedral.



Wicca

"Our aim is to gain the inner sight in the most natural and easy way.

Our opponents' aim is ever to prevent man and woman from loving, thinking that everything that helps or even permits them to love is wicked and vile.

To us it is natural. If it aids the Great Work it is good." - Gerald Gardner

The Five Essentials

Eightfold Path or Ways to the Centre

Meeting Dance


Only if it be safe, may the Covens meet, in some safe place, for the Great Gathering.

Naked all, the High Priestess leads the Dance with Magus, both hands on her waist, standing behind her.

Alternate men and women should do the same, the High Priestess leading and they following her in the Dance.

The High Priestess at last leads them into a right-hand spiral.

When the center is reached, she suddenly turns and dances back, kissing each man as she comes to him.

All men and women turn likewise and dance back, each man kissing each woman and each woman kissing each man.

None shall say whence they come, or give their true names.

Five Essentials


Intention:participants must know that you can and will succeed.

Preparation: participants must be properly prepared.

Circle: the Circle must be properly formed and purified.

Participants: participants must be properly purified

Tools: participants must have properly consecrated tools.

The Circle


The Circle, the Temple of the Gods, should be truly cast and purified, that it may be a fit place for the Gods to enter.

Mark a Circle nine feet across on the floor with chalk.

Have a bowl of water, a table as an altar and some salt.

Trace the Circle on the lines you have marked out, starting at the East and returning to the East.

Always go round the Circle with your right hand to the altar.

Put the salt into the water and go round the circle again, sprinkling it to purify it.

Go round the Circle again censing it.

Incense induces relaxation and helps to build up the atmosphere which is necessary to suggestibility.

Gum mastic, aromatic rush roots, cinnamon bark, musk, juniper, sandalwood, and ambergris in combination are all good, but patchouli is best of all.

If you may have cannabis, 'tis better still.

Everyone in the circle is then sprinkled and censed.

Draw an invoking pentacle in the Air, starting at the top and going to the lefthand corner, saying, "I summon, and call thee up, O Ye Mighty ones of the East, to guard the Circle and witness our rites."

Holding the point of Athame upwards, do the same to the South, West, and North, and return to the center, to the south of the altar.

Power is latent in the body and may be drawn out but unless confined in a circle it will be swiftly dissipated.

Hence the importance of a properly constructed circle.

Power exudes from the body; hence you should be properly prepared.

The slightest dirt spoils everything, the importance of thorough cleanliness.

The attitude of mind has great effect, so only work with a spirit of reverence.

Wine taken and repeated during the ceremony helps to produce power.

Strong drinks or drugs may be used, but if you become confused, even slightly, you cannot control the power you evoke.

The simplest way is by dancing and singing monotonous chants, slowly at first and gradually quickening the tempo until giddiness ensues.

The scourge is a far better way, for it stimulates and excites both body and soul, yet one easily retains control.

Each woman should bind her man, hands behind back and cable tow to neck.
He should kneel at the altar, and be scourged with light, steady, monotonous, slow strokes (the scourge has eight tails and five knots in each tail).

The scourgings are 3, 7, 9 (thrice three), and 21 (thrice seven) 40 in all. It is not meet to make offerings [scourgings] of less than two score to the female deification of Nature, for here be a mystery.

The fortunate numbers be: 3 and 5.

For three added to two (the Perfect Couple) be five.

And three and five be eight; eight and five be thirteen; thirteen and eight be twenty-one.

The Fivefold Kiss is called 5, but there are 8 kisses, for there be 2 feet and 2 knees and genitals and 2 breasts and the lips.

And 5 times 8 be two score.

Also, fortunate numbers be 3, 7, 8, and 21, which total 40, or two score.

For each man and woman hath ten fingers and ten toes, so each totals a score.

And a perfect couple be two score.

So a lesser number would not be perfect prayer.

If more are required make it a perfect number, as four score or six score.

Also there be Eight Elemental Weapons.

When all men are thus "purified," they purify the women in turn.

No one may be in the circle without being thus purified.

A man may only be taught by a woman and a woman by a man, and that man and man, and woman and woman, should never attempt these practices together.

Remember, the Circle, properly constructed, is ever necessary to prevent the power released from being dissipated.

It is also a barrier against any disturbances of mischievous forces, for to obtain good results you must be free from all disturbances.

Remember that darkness, points of light gleaming amid the surrounding dark, incense, and the steady passes by a white arm are not stage effects.

They are the mechanical implements which start the suggestions, which later unlocks the knowledge that it is possible to obtain the divine ecstasy, and so attain true knowledge and communion with the divine female deification of Nature.

When once you have attained this, ritual is not needed, as you may attain the state of ecstasy at will, but till then, or if you having attained this yourself, and wish to bring a companion to this state of joy, ritual is best.



To Gain the Sight


This cometh to different people in diverse ways.

'Tis seldom it cometh naturally, but it can be induced in many ways.

Deep and prolonged meditation may do or prolonged fasting.

Of old monks and nuns obtained visions by long vigils, combined with fasting, flagellation till the blood came, and other mortifications of the flesh, and so undoubtedly had visions.

In the East it is tried with various tortures, at the same time sitting in cramped postures, which retard the flow of blood, and these torments, long and continued, give good results.

In the Craft we are taught an easier way to intensify the imagination, at the same time controlling the blood supply, and this may best be done by using the ritual.

Limiting and constraining any of the senses serves to increase the concentration of another.

Shutting the eyes aids the hearing.

So the binding of the initiate's hands increases mental perception, while the scourge increaseth inner vision.

Now the mind must seize and mold the power generated, and redirect it to the desired end with all the force and frenzy of the imagination.

It is important to work naked from the start, so it becometh as second nature, and no thought of "I have no clothes" shall ever intrude and take your attention from the work.

Naked, tie hands behind back, pull up to small of back, and tie ends in front of throat, leaving a cable-tow to lead by, hanging down in front.

Arms thus form a triangle at back.

For the purpose of initiation ritual it is good that the initiates be bound firmly enough to feel they are absolutely helpless but without discomfort.

If the aspirant complains of pain, the bonds must be loosened slightly; always remember the object is to retard the blood flow enough to induce a trance state.

This involves slight discomfort as great discomfort prevents the trance state.

So the initiate goeth through it proudly, like a princess, knowing it but serves to increase her glory.

This can only be done by the aid of another intelligence and in a circle, to prevent the power thus generated being lost.



annointing oil


To make the anointing ointment, take some glazed pans filled half full with grease or olive oil.

Put in one sweet mint, marjoram in another, ground thyme in a 3rd, and if you may have it, patchouli, dried leaves pounded.

Place pans in hot water bath.

Stir and cook for several hours, then pout into linen bags, and squeeze grease through into pans again, and fill up with fresh leaves.

After doing this several times, the grease will be highly perfumed.

Then mix all together and store in a well-corked jar.

Anoint behind ears, throat, armpits, breasts, and labia.

For all ceremonies where the feet are kissed, they should also be anointed.

Magus: Listen to the words of the Great mother, who was of old also called among men, Artemis, Astarte, Dione, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Diana, Arianrhod, Bride, and by many other names.


High Priestess: "My Law is Compassion unto all beings.

Keep pure your highest ideals.

For mine is the secret which opens upon the door of youth; and mine is the cup of the Wine of Life: and the Cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the Holy Grail of Immortality.

I am the Gracious Goddess who gives the gift of Joy unto the heart of Man.

Upon Earth I give the knowledge of the Spirit Eternal, and beyond death I give peace and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before.

Nor do I demand aught in sacrifice, for behold, I am the Mother of all things, and my Compassion is poured out upon Earth."


Magus: Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess, She in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of Heaven, whose body encircleth the universe.

High Priestess: "I who am the beauty of the green earth; and the White Moon amongst the Stars; and the mystery of the Waters; and the desire of the heart of man.

I call unto thy Eternal Soul: arise and come unto me.

For I am the Soul of Nature who giveth Life to the Universe.

Thine innermost divine self shall be enwrapped in Synchronicity.

Thou who thinkest to seek me, know that thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not unless thou know the mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee, for behold; I have been with thee from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire."



ritual tools


All tools must be consecrated by a man and a woman, both as naked as drawn swords; they must be purified, clean, and properly prepared.

The tool should be kept in as close connection as possible to the naked body for at least a month.

When not in use, all tools and weapons should be put away in a secret place; and it is good that this should be near your sleeping place, and that you handle them each night before retiring.

Do not allow anyone to touch or handle any of your tools until they are thoroughly impregnated with your aura; say, six months or as near as possible.

To avoid discovery, let the working tools be as ordinary things that any may have in their houses.

Let the Pentacles be of wax, so they may be broken at once.

The best substances for making tools are those that have once had life in them.

Thus wood or ivory is better for a wand than metal.

Virgin parchment is better than manufactured paper for talismans.

Things made by hand are good, as there is life in them.

The High Priestess shall rule her Coven as representative of the female deification of Nature, and the High Priest, Magus, shall support her as the representative of Yaweh.

With compassion and worship in their hearts they shall raise power from their bodies to give power to the gods, as has been taught us of old.

For in this way only may man have communion with the gods, for the gods cannot help man without the help of men.

Form a mental image of what is desired, and force yourself to see that it is fulfilled, with the fierce belief and knowledge that it can and will be fulfilled, and that you will go on willing till you force it to be fulfilled.

Remember magical operations are useless unless the mind can be brought to the proper attitude, keyed to the utmost pitch.



drawing down the moon

Drawing Down the Moon


The High Priestess stands in front of the altar, assumes Goddess position (arms crossed).

Magus, kneeling in front of her, draws pentacle on her body with phallus-head wand:

"I invoke and beseech Thee, O mighty Mother of all life and fertility. By seed and root, by stem and bud, by leaf and flower and fruit, by Life and Compassion, do I invoke Thee to descend into the body of thy servant and High Priestess [name]."

The Moon having been drawn down, i.e., link established, Magus and other men give Fivefold Kiss:

(kissing feet) "Blessed be thy feet, that have brought thee in these ways";

(kissing knees) "Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar";

(kissing labia) "Blessed be thy labia, without which we would not be";

(kissing breasts) "Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty and in strength";

(kissing lips) "Blessed be thy lips, that shall speak the sacred names."

Women all bow.

High Priestess:" Whenever ye have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the Moon is full, ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of Me who am Queen of all Witcheries and Magics.

There ye shall assemble, ye who are fain to learn all sorcery, yet have not won its deepest secrets.

To these will I teach things that are yet unknown.

And ye shall be free from slavery, and as a sign that ye be really free, ye shall be naked in your rites, both men and women, and ye shall dance, sing, feast, make music, and compassion, all in my praise.

There is a Secret Door that I have made to establish the way to taste even on Earth the Elixir of Immortality.

Say, 'Let ecstasy be mine, and joy of Life given to me, for I am the Gracious Goddess. I give unimaginable joys in Life! And upon death, peace unutterable, nor do I demand aught in sacrifice."

Magus: "Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess."

High Priestess:

"I love you: I yearn for you: pale or purple, veiled or voluptuous. I who am all pleasure, and purple and drunkenness of the innermost senses, desire you.

Put on the wings, arouse the coiled splendor within you.

Come unto me, for I am the flame that burns in the heart of every man, and the core of every Star.

Let it be your inmost divine self who art lost in the constant rapture of infinite joy.

Let the rituals be rightly performed with joy and beauty.

Remember that all acts of compassion and pleasure are my rituals.

So let there be beauty and strength, leaping laughter, force and fire within you."

Ever remember the promise of the Gracious Goddess:

"For ecstasy is mine and joy on Earth" so let there ever be joy in your heart.

Greet people with joy, be glad to see them.

If times be hard, think, "It might have been worse. I at least have known the joys of the Gathering, and I will know them again."

Think of the grandeur, beauty, and poetry of the rites, of the loved ones you meet through them.

If you dwell on this inner joy, your health will be better.

You must try to banish all fear, for it will really touch you.

It may hurt your body, but your soul is beyond it all.

Ever remember, that if you help others it makes you forget your own woes.

If another be in pain, do what you may to distract his attention from it.

Do not say "You have no pain!" but if you may, administer the drugs which sooth as well as cure.

Strive to make them believe they are getting better.

Install joyful thoughts into their inner mind so that it be always believed.

If you give him one of the drugs and then say, "The pain is growing less.

Soon it will be gone," because the pain goes, the next time you say, "The pain is going," he will believe you and the pain will really get less.

You must ever say so with conviction, and this conviction must come from your believing it yourself, because you yourself know that if you can fix his mind so that he believes you, it is true.

Look exactly between their eyes, looking as if your eyes pierced their heads, opening your eyes as wide as you may and never blink.

This continued gazing oft causes the patient to grow sleepy.

If they show signs of this, say "You are growing sleepy. You will sleep, you are tired. Sleep. Your eyes grow tired. Sleep."

If they close their eyes, say "Your eyes close, you are tired, you cannot open your eyes."

If they cannot, say "Your arms are tired, you cannot raise them."

If they cannot, say "I am master of your mind. You must ever believe what I tell you. When I look like this into your eyes you will sleep and be subject to my will," then tell them they will sleep and wake up refreshed, feeling better.

Continue this with soothing and healing drugs, and try to infuse into them the feeling of ecstasy that you feel at the Gathering.

They cannot feel it in full, but you can command them to feel what is in your own mind, and try to concentrate on this ecstasy.

Think joy, think compassion, try to help others and bring joy into their lives.

Children are naturally easier to influence than grown people.

Ever strive to work through people's existing beliefs.



bring on the thunder

Way to the Center



Let each High Priestess govern her Coven with justice and compassion, with the help of the Elders, always heeding the advice of the messenger of the gods, if he cometh.

She will heed all complaints of brothers, and strive to settle all differences among them, but it must be recognized that there be people who will ever strive to force others to do as they will.

If there be any disputes or quarrels among the brethren, the High Priestess shall straight convene the Elders and enquire into the matter, and they shall hear both sides, first alone, then together, and they shall decide justly, not favoring the one side or the other, ever recognizing that there be people who can never agree to work under others, but at the same time there be many people who cannot rule justly.

Ever remember, ye are the Hidden Children of the Gods.

So never do anything to disgrace them.

Never boast. Never threaten.

Never say you would wish ill to anyone.

If you or any not in the Circle speak of the Craft, say, "Speak not to me of such. It frightens me. 'Tis evil luck to speak of it."

If you would keep a Book let it be in your own hand of write.

Let brothers and sisters copy what they will, but never let the Book out of your hands, and never keep the writings of another, for if it be found in their hand, they well may be taken and enjoined.

If your Book be found 'tis clear proof against you alone.

If taken keep all thoughts of the Craft from your mind.

Say you had bad dreams; a demon made you write without your knowledge.

If they try to make you speak of the Sisterhood, DO NOT, but if they try to make you speak of impossibilities, such as flying through the air, consorting with the Christian Devil, or sacrificing children, or eating men's flesh, to obtain relief from torture, say, "I had an evil dream. I was not myself. I was crazed."

If you are condemned, fear not, unless you betray the Sisterhood.

The Curse of the Goddess shall be upon any that betray the Sisterhood, so they are never reborn on Earth, and instead remain where they belong - in the Hell of the Christians.

Be sure, if steadfast when you go to the pyre, you will feel naught.

If the worst comes, and you go to the pyre, wait till the flames and smoke spring up, bend your head over, and breath in with long breaths.

You will choke and die swiftly, and wake in the arms of the Goddess.
You go to Death and what lies beyond, the ecstasy of the Goddess.

The Law shall still continue to help us in our plight.

No one, however great an injury or injustice they receive, may use the Craft to do ill or harm any.

The Craft may be used to prevent or restrain Christians from harming pagans or others, but only to constrain them and never to punish.

Strictly keep to the Law, never accept Money for the use of the Craft.

Christian sorcerers sell pardons to let men escape from their sins.

You may use the Craft for your own advantage, or for the advantage of the Craft, only if you be sure you harm none. Let the Coven debate the matter at length. Only if all are satisfied that none may be harmed may the Craft be used. If it is not possible to achieve your ends one way without harming any, perchance the aim may be achieved by acting in a different way, so as to harm none.

Let the Craft keep books with the names of all Herbs which are good for man, and all cures, that all may learn.

Keep another book with all the Banes [poisons] and let only the Elders and trustworthy people have this knowledge.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.





This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
