Alright, peeps. It’s taken me a while due to some icky human stuff but here is round two of my Q&A’s.
The set up was the usual, my UC and a small table facing East with a scrying bowl and two candles. The sigil I used was found in the book Summoning Spirits by Konstantinos.
Prior to this, I did a little research on Sandalphon. I read the description in the above mentioned book, as well as some nice poetry about Him.
My preparation was also the usual, the cloud exercise with a countdown.
Sandalphon’s sigil opened very rapidly. It started fading in and out and the lines started expanding in thickness. I don’t think I’ve ever had one open so fast.
“I call thee Sandalphon, great Angel of Ascent. I call thee to appear before me, in a beholdable form and speak to me in a clear voice I can understand. Sandalphon, come!”
I repeated “Sandalphon, come!” while continuing to gaze at the sigil, which seemed to expand in a strange way.
I felt a subtle thickening in front of me, if that makes sense, and heard a gravelly voice say, “I am here.”
I moved my gaze from the sigil to the scrying bowl and tried to relax some more but I didn’t get anything. I gazed at the sigil again and the voice repeated, “I am here.”
I closed my eyes and got the impression of a vast figure, but it was very subtle and soft for such a powerful angel.
I welcomed the figure, and thanked him for coming. In response, I got a “Speak your Will.”
Here is what I got:
DK: Sandalphon, what does it mean to be Ascended?
S: To be Ascended means to personify the Eternal within. To transcend the physical form and to translate the course material into the Divine particle.
DK: If Ascendancy means to translate the physical substance to a more Divine one, then why has it been said that the physical is the Gloried position?
S: The physical is gloried as the final manifestation of the Divine Thought. It is not separate.
DK: I think I understand. So Azazel was correct and the Great Work is to transmute the physical here on Earth.
DK: Why were you transfigured as an angel form the human?
S: To act as a guide upon the path, as is my brother. Your path is a difficult one but it is clearly laid out before you.
DK: What do you mean?
S: You have much to overcome, and much to accomplish in this life but know you are not alone for the Eternal Source is strong within you. Trust yourself and know that many hands guide you.
DK: Thank you, Sandalphon. Can you tell me about the difference between Angelic Ascent and Demonic Ascent?
S: The path through the Demonic is quicker, but the learning curve is greater. Ultimately it leads to the same place: the Ascent of the human into the Divine. The Demonic has its place and you would do well to heed their guidance.
Heed my words. Your Ascension has begun. Stand firm upon the path. This life for you is one of power.
At this point, the sensation of vastness just disappeared. I called out to Sandalphon but there was no response. I guess he dismissed himself.
I gave the license to depart and suddenly realized that my trance had lifted completely as soon as Sandalphon had left. I was not light headed or dizzy in any way… It was a complete return to normal consciousness. I have never encountered that before.
This Q&A seemed a little ego stroking so I take it with a heavy dose of skepticism. Make of it as you will.
