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…

The Virtue of True Friendship

“I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects.”
― Oscar Wilde
Two children giving a pinkie swear stating to be best friends forever is a beautiful act which many might consider naïve, at most cute. If we pause at this moment a surge of the eternal reveals itself in the children’s innocence tying the little fingers together they are tying Mercury to Mercury and an oath is made of friendship. No other planet could be more proper for such oath. Mercury which is bad with bad and good with good, a communicator, thief and deceiver, the amalgam wherein Eros with all his love and contempt flows like the pulse of a dagger. ‘Friend’ and ‘fiend’ share etymological roots as much as ‘host’ and ‘hostile’. Friendships, like marriages, concords and pacts of whatever orientation often see this turn from friend to foe due to Mercury playing out misunderstandings, disagreements, betrayals, disappointments and deceptions in …

Shigidi; Radical Protection (New offering at Sacred Alchemy)

After a year offering Shigidi off store and having experienced great results and feedback from those installing this amazing force in their temple, home or workspace we have decided to offer this product permanently at Sacred Alchemy Store.
Please read below for details:
Shigidi; Radical Protection
Protection of one’s ambient, home and sphere is always important – and amongst the most powerful tools available is the Shigidi.
Shigidi is a supernatural force, a composite of powers that utilizes the ase of Esu at its most fierce and hot, hence turning this into a power of aggressive guardianship drawing in the essence of large felines, predatory birds and your own warrior ancestors bound in the ase of Esu for the sake of radical protection. Shigidi represents a similar mystery as found in the Congos, commonly known as Nkisi Nkondi, which is a variation of the Yoruba Shigidi, similar in the protective and restraining powers it holds.
Since Shigidi is ultimately resorting to the use of your ow…

Ifá forecast –dafá ikin


The geomantic oracle known as Ifá is one of the most precise and solution oriented oracles known to man. By identifying patterns of energy moving your current situation it is possible to find presidency in the past and within the fundamental energetic building blocks of creation clarifications, answers and solutions to whatever situation. Ifá is predicting the future by analysing the past and the energetic matrix that lies to the root of a given situation and from this can predict the future.
Ifá can be thrown with obi (kolanut), opele (the divination chain) or with ikin (palm-nuts), the latter being the most complex and time demanding form of predictive work where the manipulation of the ikin leads to…
