Last night I completed my initiatory journey unto Fire with great success. Upon my last visions of Sastan began to fade I threw his sigil into the flame letting go all the energy and build-up that has been with me for 11 days.
This morning I began my scrying session with Mepsitahl. Below is my altar as I always have it, this time with blue candles and her sigil. I see nothing wrong with having an eclectic altar and alchemically bringing mixed forces together,at least on an altar scale. I create my reality, as a living god I chose what,when, and how ( I believe this is the fire side of me speaking)
I am moving clockwise(deosil) as i pathwork the elements and evoke their power unto me. For Mepistahl I am facing west on the floor(not using the altar again, feels more grounded and effectual on the floor relaxed. Gods sit and relax, not standing for hours at a time). Thrones are built for gods, those who stand assist…period.
I decided to “improvise” my beginnings with the water element by calling upon Mepsitahl as she is the initiator of visions,clairvoyance,clairaudience,dreams,etc…
My setup consisted of the following:
One blue floor cloth
two blue votive candles
one ritual cup with water
Tarot deck(using the Giger deck as it feels powerful and the images are evocative)
One black bowl with water
One black scrying mirror large with plate stand
My amethyst skull (goes wherever I go)
notebook with pre-made questions
Brass plate with pentagram and cali white sage
Sigil on cheap paper
Notice I have two mediums; bowl and mirror. The reason being that I wanted to learn the art of scrying on both. Mepsitahl explained to me that “she is everywhere” and so having both and gazing at one then the other facilitates my visions tremendously.
I recited the 2nd incantation wobblilng back and forth. I began to feel quite light headed as the scent of the sage transported me elsewhere.
I began gazing at the sigil for a few momewnts. I chanted her name with praises and love. The desire within me began to grow…a desire of love(best way to describe) of affection and understanding.
"Mepsitahl…mepsitahl…daughter of nepture…beauty as divine as the oceans…mepsitahl…etc…
Slowly I began to seriously “feel” a presence almost descending down to me. As opposed to fire which moves quickly and ignites, the water element “flows” unto you. The presence was definitely felt this morning(which as of this writing It continues to linger within me).
My conjuration was a if I was courting a beautiful woman whose shyness was intoxicating and alluring at the same time.
Let me first say that mepsitahl is VERY shy. For her to appear within a bowl of water or mirror is true revelation. However, she appeared to me in my mind in the most descriptive references that I could not imagine nor create.
A woman in her mid twenties, ivory skin smooth as pearls to the touch. Long straight white hair flowing very slowly.purple/blue Eyes as old as the universe yet new and invigorating to the magician. Gem stone on her forehead. Her body draped in a transparent blue cloak moving as if under the oceans of time.
This vision began to take sure power that behind her a silver glow of rays came from behind her shimmering like fallen stars reawakening her presence.
From this point on I began to ask her to allow me to see her within the mirror. For me, using the mirror all these years, all I could see were blue or red outlines of spirits but now I wanted the sight to appear as fresh as morning on the mirror. This is easier said than done. Magically awakening the sight with a mirror is patience and work. I did see a woman but then it vanished. My bowl of water was also not as charged. My mind, on the other hand,saw everything there was to see of her.
I had several questions ready and she answered all of them. I also had a request to make a pact with her to learn all she knows and impart her wisdom unto me. She agreed. For twelve days she will be revealing her secrets( a list of which is so long that it took several pages from my notebook).
For an idea on how I verify the visions I receive and know that what I was conversing with is the spirit in question, re-read my earlier posts on sastan. There’s no need for redundancy.
As opposed to Sastan, Mepsitahl is very specific on how to evoke her to full manifestation(mirror or physical). This means she gave me full instructions on number of candles,colors,orientation,etc…
Later tonight I will upload a digital painting of this amazing woman. Her presence is nothing short of angelic or…love…
NOTE: I will also draw some fire beings that I have personally evoked through flame(less their names for confidentiality) even my androgynous fire familiar(whose an angel of sorts).
