All of the foundations of practice section presents exercises which will empower you to develop your psychic faculties. The foundation of the foundation is the exercise called “Peering Into Drugaskan”. All other exercises in that section will create a dynamic of synergy which will enhance the effects of that ONE exercise. I just did a consultation regarding this…
Here is my advice. Begin with the Ignition of the Black Sun and Kunda Yoga. Devote yourself to those things three day a week. Then focus on one of the exercises within Foundations of Practice for a month two days a week. Take two days off and let results assimilate.
Through this process contemplate your personal application of the Three Evil Principles. (evil thought, evil word, and evil deed) This will help you to USE and WIELD the power you develop to make room for more. None of this even calls for the need of the Altar of Blackened Fire.
Their are indeed alternatives for creating small portable makeshift urn of power which can indeed be consecrated as nexions of infernal power for the most forbidden alchemical work in this text. They do have disadvantages though.
- It is hard to bury things like talismans and other objects you seek to empower with divine darkness. Most objects can still be buried if the size of the smaller pot or urn permit it. However things like handmade candles used within the Rites dealing with the Lamps of Fate are usually not able to be buried among other things.
- It is harder to keep the eternal blackened fire burning. You CAN use smaller chime candles and burn one a day. That takes commitment though as the activation process is a bit more complex. Devotion to that process though will make it just as effective as keeping an eternal flame burning. Imagination and the ability to adapt are important. Nothing is ever set in stone outside of the Alchemy. That you cannot fuck with without blow back. That is SCIENCE.
