I have an extensive background in Judaism because of my mothers religious beliefs. It has always been said to me that when a man uses Tefillin, it is as close to a direct link man can get to a divine source (Yahweh). In the past, having had a Bar Mitzvah, I started using Tefillin every morning during my scheduled prayers, I always felt a spiritual connection to something, but, during this time I was also dabbling in areas of black magic. By day, I was a “light” worshipper and by night I gave my self to the “dark”. I stopped using Tefillin after my journey turned down another path and I left behind any all affiliations with the Jewish faith. Recently after sometime of studying other areas such as the Kabbalah and aspects of the Golden Dawn, it appears that many western magicks are derived from some form of Jewish Mysticism.
So my question is, does anyone have any experience with Tefillin and if so have you ever considered using it in a more “occult” like fashion? Can you alter the intended purpose of the Tefillin and direct that towards different energies not associated with the Sephirothic realms?
If anyone has any practice in this area or suggestions on how to approach this, it is greatly appreciated.
Blessings, to You & Yours
