Focus of Life

Constantly we allow ourselves to be defined by the other, a natural dance between potential and becoming where the Self gradually reveals itself, a mysterious core that it is own cause and effect. Knowledge of Self leads to acceptance and acceptance of this knowledge leads to mastery of self. In Mastery of Self we find the Focus of Life where devil and saint is twined on the same axis and generates peace. Mastery of Self comes with simplicity and compassion, naturally, effortlessly, because there is nothing to defend from the threat of the other. Life is a series of changes and life is very much like a river as Lao Tzu perceived it. The more we flow with the current and seek to understand and take interest in its movements instead of resisting it the more we will stay as the captain of our Soul.
We are constantly bombarded with opinions and judgments and it is not always so easily to not take it personally. But an opinion is a judgment formed by one perceiver of a limited series of ev…

PROSPERITY AND PROTECTION new arrivals at Sacred Alchemy Store

SACRED ALCHEMY STORE ANNOUNCES NEW ARRIVALS:
TROLLSTAVE/TROLLMARK
for protection
We can make staves, markings and runes for nearly any purpose, the one here made for protection both from visible and invisible hostile influences.
We are gathering all materials in the right days and hours, all done under the appeal of Thor and the vaettir necessary for turning a carefully selected piece of wood into a powerful charm!
The wood is not only carved and ‘reddened’, it is also filled with items proper to the runes (secrets) worked into the stave.
The stave in the photo is of the more discreet type, but each and every one will naturally come out differently being unique pieces.
Please do write us in order to discuss the details of carving the stave you need by writing to: sacred.alchemy.store@gmail.com

PROSPERITYFETICHE
We choose to refer to this spirit vessel as a fetiche, a magically endowed object, which in this case is made and constructed upon the vibration and energy of Aje Saluga, the wife of…

SACRED ALCHEMY STORE NEW ARRIVALS!

Sacred AlchemyStore has the pleasure of announcing one new product and a new service as depicted below. 


Quimbanda Despacho
Given the problems involved with life force offerings in many places in the world we have decided to offer to make sacrifice and despacho on behalf of those who need or want to have this done but are unable to do so by various reasons. We will offer on behalf of you candles, tobacco, alcoholic beverages, padé etc. and birds to the Exu and Pomba Gira of your choosing. As Quimbanda is a living cult the presence of all things ‘fiery’, menga included, is important to maintain the spirits high and effective. These more elaborate feeding of spirit can also be done in relation to workings and petition you are doing yourself in order to give a greater boost to your desire and workings. We will feed your Exu and Pomba Gira on your behalf and if Exu or Pomba Gira has messages to deliver to you, they will be given along with a photo of the despacho/feeding. In order to execute…

QUIMBANDA WORKSHOP

We are happy to announce that given the success of our first Quimbanda workshop in Extrema, Brazil last month we are ready to repeat the workshop in August 2019.
The number of participants are limited, so interested parties should get in touch fast.

We are using a form of spiritual screening to assemble the groups, last word lies with the Maioral, literally, so interest don't equal admission. There is also the matter of the group dynamic.

But given how this is shaping up we will definitely offer this workshop more times.

The dates are from the 14th to 18th of August 2019 and will be held in Extrema, Brazil, 120 km from São Paulo. Please write to: sacred.alchemy.store@gmail.com for more information and notifying your interest. 

Laroyé!

Imperfect is the Path to Perfection ever Imperfect

A Review of Frater Acher: Holy Daimon (Scarlet Imprint: 2018)
As I read through the first pages of Frater Acher it became evident that this book was written by a kind soul, the kind of person that had his soul’s mirror to reflect kindness through the constant polishing and beating by Lord Saturn. As he writes on page 6:
“Flawlessness is for tyrants and the mythical dead. As living humans, our hands are always stained. We mess up, we clean up, and mostly are blissfully ignorant of the damage or good we have done… This Platonic idea of who we are meant to be is at one with, and yet entirely separate from, our mortal personalities. It is waiting for us within our holy daimon.”
And it is exactly this imperfection I found interesting in his work. The daimon, no matter if we analyse it from the philosophy of Zoroaster, Plato, Plotinus or the Chaldeans it appears that this daimoinic element is something of breath, something of fire, something good that enters us at birth is elegantly treated b…

A Review of José Leitão: The Bibliotheca Valenciana (Hadean Press: 2017)

This collection of the main Works of Jerónimo Cortez of Valencia who composed his treatises in the 17th Century serves as an extension of Leitãos study in the Iberian Cyprians. Leitão comments in the presentation of his amazing translation work that the book might end up serve as a reference work, and indeed, the sheer volume of more than 600 pages might cause this treasure trove to be a work that is consulted more than worked, which is a pity, because this is a very complete collection of pragmatic and practical folk magic consisting of very much the same content as we find in the Iberian and Nordic Cyprians, albeit less diabolic. This means that we find here recipes for curing toothache and other afflictions as much as finding lost animals, the use of precious stones and herbs for whatever use, magical and mundane, for exploring its virtues or for curing something or someone. We find extensive explorations on astrology, all for practical use and we also fine a most wonderful bestiar…

The Worthy Enemy

When we appoint an enemy we are often times virtually soaking our hand through the mirror and try to secure what we despise in ourselves, we are trying to give a form to our insecurities and a forgotten contempt that somehow resurged in the presence of the adversary, because it is not the adversary that lures us into evil, it is always ourselves, the adversary simply becomes the scapegoat fin our own internal drama.
The idea of enemy is derived from the dichotomy between host and hostile, so there is certainly linguistic basis found in describing an unfriend as an enemy. This enmity is born from hurt and disappointment, from accusations and misalignments. We need to consider well if the unfriend deserves the dignity of an enemy in the sense of being an worthy adversary.
The Buddha once commented that our enemy is as important as our teacher – and it is in this field we need to separate the enemy from the adversary and even more so, the enemy from the fly.
What we see today is that mer…
