20160323_090622It has taken me forever to get this review up but it is finally up so here we go…

This book is for those who have a love of gardening and a flair for alchemy. If you don’t like either, then leave this book to those who do.

So we have moved past the introduction and into the first chapter which is Working with Plants. It gives you the basic guidelines in how not to harm the plants when picking them, dealing with poisonous plants and the normal warnings. Now for me personally, I am allergic to 23 varieties of grass, 20 types of trees and life itself (recently), so yeah I have to severely modify what I can do and live through my mother who I am giving this book to when she starts her garden in a couple weeks.

Next is the Herbalist’s Tool & Pantry, it gives you a rundown of items that you need to purchase and store separate from your regular kitchen tools. The preparation for harvesting the plants are written in great detail and laid out easily in front of you.

Making Oils/Oleums Philtres, and the Teas, Elixirs, and Tinctures chapters are basically your meat and potatoes, in understanding how to make what you need without burning yourself or screwing up or even killing yourself. It states throughout the book not to drink poisonous mixes, so if you do and die, well you were warned dumb ass. Now my favorite method in this section is the salves and sprays, as this will be how I will do a lot of my mixes. Having that quick Daemonic spray for workings will be very handy in the upcoming months.

In Preparing Herbal Mixtures for Incense chapter, you can get down and dirty by hand-making your incense. I am lazy so I will be buying mine. Though I will charge them like I normally do.

In the Other Preparations chapter, you have the uses for bath salts, soaps and candle uses. This will be a good one to keep in the self. Having bath salts is perfect for when you want to purify before a ritual.

Plant Reference section, is pretty explanatory. It gives a very generous list (14 pp.) of magickal plants and what they can be used for. The same for the Bases section and Miscellany Magickal Recipes and Random Daemons.

The next three chapters are my favorite: Cursing Recipes, Death Daemonic Recipes and Divination Recipes. Ahhh, the love I have for these three keeps me warm at night.

The next few chapters Magickal Inks, Dukante Hierarchy Recipes, Goetic Hierarchy Recipes, and Grimoirium Verum Recipes gives you more than enough hands on experience to keep you busy for a few months trying them out.

Rituals sections are always a win/win in my book with, any Occult read I pick up. There are nine healthy rituals, love the number, that will keep you busy and build your energy up when working with charging your mixtures.

The second to last section, The Magickal Gardener, I skimmed through. I kill plants you heard me, not on purpose, but because I am so absolutely horrible in Gardening that Satan and Eury told me to take a seat. No lie, I suck ass at gardening, but my mother has a green thumb and can grow anything. This has all types of tips and hints in growing your garden so it is good to take heed and take notes.

Last section is a list of resources to grow your magickal library so you can have a basement like mines; that literally has books on tables, shelves, chairs, the washer and dryer and every square inch of floor. Actually if I could float, I would be able to go into my basement. Seriously, a lot of books.

This book is a wealth of information, filled with recipes, rituals, formulas, and tried and true favorites that I love. So get online, order a few few friends and enjoy your summer trying out some of the philtres and tinctures. Try not to cut a finger, blow up your alchemy set up, or poison you neighbor (well unless, you know). Enjoy the read and have fun. I know I am.

Drawing Down Belial by S. Connolly

Posted in Book Reviews with tags , , , , , , on 06/04/2014 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I have had a good weekend. Another book from my fav author came out. Drawing Down Belial by S. Connolly. I picked it up Friday and finished it Sunday. I have worked with Belial before and I was so excited about a book in which I could work with him a little further. So I couldn’t wait and purchased the Kindle version (I will be buying the physical copy as well).

 

This book is for Daemonic Divination, Ascension and Channeling. A Psychic/Mediums dream! How this book came to be is a very interesting read and makes you think about the interactions you have with people, and even in the beyond, things can always be better. Here you will have information on how to use the following divination methods: Prepared Spirit Boards, Pendulum Dowsing, Scrying, Reading Daemonic Sigils, Ascension (Astral) Work, and Dream Divination. This is enough to keep you busy for some months if not a couple of years getting into the nitty gritty. There are also quite a few more divination methods that are included and talked about as well.

 

You are (re)introduced to the four main types of Mediumship. I am blessed/cursed to have all four: Clairsentience (One that knows and can communicate it), Clairsentience (Knows what is happening in the future), Clairvoyant, and Clairaudience. From there you are told what devices will be better for each type, how your Zodiac sign relates to your abilities and tips and hints to help you make the most of your gift.

 

There is a section on prepping the Medium which is really important to know and perform. Just don’t read it and think you can skip it. I have come out of plenty of Ascensions and felt extremely dehydrated and easily dranked half a gallon of water. You have the basic Oleums, teas and recipes to help enhance your gift, including tinctures and ointments. There are some that I will like to use even though I can connect easily. You never know what else can aid you and I will be looking forward to using some of the recipes later this year.

 

There is a nice section on prepping your spirit board and even making one for the purpose you need it for. You have exercises, tips, and the most important section, How to Destroy the Board if you have something icky attaches itself to your board and tries to come through.  The Pendulum section I enjoy because I have a really good idea on a wood board I have that I can use for my workings. I am not big into Scrying, as I have seen things that scared the shit out of me, and the fact that I can pull things out of a session, and that isn’t cool. Me being a Scorpio, we are known as the most psychic, all Water signs really, but there are some good tips that will make me try again and just to help me relax and try a method that I would have just dismissed.  There are so many different scrying techniques that are shared and talked about that I won’t list them here. You have to find out for yourself J

 

The section on Reading Daemonic Sigils and Tarot Cards are another favorite. I have three Tarot decks (Necronomicon my fav, Thoth, and Angelic). I think I am pretty good with readings and I practice a lot. I also am gathering equipment to make Daemonic Sigil Chips (I have the Sigilum Daemonic which you should get). Channeling is talking about in depth and is a chapter you need to read and pay attention to. Channeling is not easy to do and you have to relax and believe in what you are doing and who yo are reaching. If not, your screwed. Ascension has to be my favorite way of communicating with the Daemonic because it’s like it is just us two or however many, because sometimes someone who needs to talk to me, more someone I need to talk to joins in and it’s like a relaxing conference meeting. Sometimes they are blunt, sometimes they are an ass lol, other times it is a serious conversation in which I need to heed what is being said to me and what I will be expecting in a few days or weeks or months.

 

The last section I’ll talk about is the Dream Communication section. I am not a good person to ask about dream translations. I couldn’t tell you what a buffalo appearing in a mustard suit means. You could be hungry or the buffalo can be like why are you eating me go Vegan. Again I don’t know. But you should try to decipher your dreams by using a dream dictionary, someone who is good in it, or try to figure it out yourself. Recently I have learned that when I have a dream about being chased by food, it means I am reaching a breaking point and I need to step back and relax. Pay attention so I won’t burn out.

 

Closing out the book are rituals for Ritual consecration, charging your divination devices, , connecting with the Daemonic Divine,  and the ritual to Draw Down Belial. You will also have info from the Daemons in this book as well, and if you have been in contact with them you will know that Leviathan is right. The one thing I have noticed when I have channeled Daemonic Divine is that our bodies are too confined so they won’t linger long. It has been plenty of times that Lilith or Hecate complained that I was short and didn’t have enough room for them, and how we humans lack space lol. So if they stay long it is most likely an important reason.

 

This is another book that has been added to my library and practices, and I do recommend anyone that is interested in Divination, Ascension, and Daemonic Contact to go and pick up this book. You will have a lot of recipes to try, exercises that will keep you busy, and rituals to play around with.
