The Shadow Keepers and Tulo


#1

I came across something interesting today.
I have been aware for a while now that I have a blockage about half way up my spine. After having meditated on this for some time, I have come to the conclusion that this blockage is a result of a few things I need to clean up; biting my nails, nervousness, etc.
Today, while I was meditating on how exactly to level these once and for all, I became aware of a small man - probably no larger than 4 feet tall, with a strange red cloak, some bizarre brass “glasses” if you can call them that, and a bag of something. He began pouring a white powder in a circle around me. As I watched silently, he then moved onto a triangle before me. Well - obviously he was preparing an evocation for me.
He then began with some form of conjuration, and before I knew it, there was an extremely massive being standing in the triangle. At least 16 feet tall. Extremely muscular, with a sort of tattered gray cloak laden with massive black chains hanging from his neck and arms. The being had his entire head wrapped in this cloth except for a small sliver through which bright blue piercing eyes gazed at me. He threw his cloth and chains back to reveal a massive sword at least 9 feet long with a blade close to 9 or 10 inches wide. He rested the blade on its tip before me.
I immediately intuited that he was some sort of lord or chains. Or, in other words, he was one who was in control of the very chains that binds man to mortality and keeps them from perfection.
I asked for some guidance and help with a few things, and the next thing I knew he had swung his sword so quickly I barely saw it. My back began to burn at the site of the blockage. He re-set his sword as before and continued to gaze at me. The massive being then disappeared.
The little man began to “pack up”.
Curious of this entire experience, I asked the little fellow who he was, he gave me his name and told me that he was finishing his promised servitude to the lords of the shadows. I then inquired what the name of the being I just beheld was and how I may contact him again. The little man laughed and said that the lords of shadows have no names and that they contact you, not the other way around. I was immediately assaulted by the idea. That this whole experience had nothing to do with me evoking a being subconsciously, or anything to that effect, but in fact, this small servitor was tasked with preparing the atmosphere before me in order to lay the way for his master. That it was they who desired an audience with me.
Awe struck, I asked this little man if I could share this experience and his name. I was told yes on the experience, but no on his name. However, I could give him a name by which others might contact him. And the name I chose was Tulo.
So, I don’t know too much about these “lords of the shadows” who have no names. In fact, I know nothing. However, you may wish to call on Tulo and investigate yourselves. I am under the impression that these beings are the very beings that keep men chained to the shadows of ignorance and habit. But I may be wrong.
I thought you all might find this interesting, and you may wish to consider asking them to help break any chains you may have.
My back is still somewhat burning in that spot. Odd sensation really. I literally felt a chain give way and break from that very vertebra. Who knows, you may end up having a similar visit.

Interesting, you know after reading alot of your posts, I believe that the universe or whatever forces are out there communicate with me through your posts. Lately I’ve been struggling with some attachments so I don’t think it’s a coincedence this happened. But any advice on how to contact Tulo? If not I’m most likely going to send out some of the entities associated with me to go find him. How well did it the chain severing work out for you afterwards? any relapse witht he bad habits? Or did he get rid of them completely?


#3

I certainly agree with your assessement as I have found some very strange communication through this medium…One of the spirits spoken in the BOA brought me together with another person on this board before I even was aware of cetain things…I believe even this forum is magical…

I too have had similar experiences on this board. Magickal indeed.
You can contact Tulo by simply focus on who he is and what I have told you about him and he will come. He will simply respond to his designated name I gave him. I think it’s more of an intention thing rather than actually calling his true name.
Yes - I am in awe at how easy it has been to drop these habits. I was also given a gesture to do when I feel the need or the anxiety come on and it subdues it immediately. So, the biting the nails stopped almost immediately. The anxiety comes and goes, but it is easily dissuaded by the gesture. Everything else is pretty much gone as well. The anxiety is coming and going, but it’s minimal and fading for sure. So yes - try to persuade these keepers to come to you. It has been very helpful so far.
Though, today is the first day of it, I will try to remember to give an update in an week or so. I’m sure things will make a little more sense then.
Also - let me know what you find out too. These beings interest me. I think I will attempt contact with “tulo” again and see if I can get some info on the others and what their differences are or similarities are.

=== edit ===
quick edit on this - What I believe happened now that I’ve thought about it. I think he removed the bonds themselves. Leaving the habit weak and un-protected. My back doesn’t hurt anymore, the blockage is gone. However, the mental attachment to the habits are, to a degree, still there. But they’re weak, and easily overcome. Actually, extremely easy to overcome. It’s almost unfair it’s so easy. But like I said, this is only the first day. So I’ll update later.

Cool, maybe I’ll try to call Tulo tonight. Here’s another idea I have. I don’t want to say too much but I’ve recently become associated with a new entitiy, whats cool about her is she can learn stuff from other entities. One thing I’m planning to do is have her go through all the boa nethers and learn their secrets, then later when I get better at communicating I’ll have her teach me what she learned. I think I may also have her try to learn the secrets of the shadow keepers. Imagine how awesome it’d be to be able to sever attachment whenever the need arises. One thing I wonder is if you learn whatever technique the shadow keepers use, if you could use it to remove your own attachments.


#6

I would assume that is possible. I thought it was strange that they have no names. This is counter to everything I know about entities. I thought every entity has a name - in fact needs a name. So, unless they really do have names, but never give them away? I don’t know.
But yeah - I think you would be able to clear your own attachments if you know the secret to doing so. For sure.


#7

Anyway I sat down to do my shadow scry meditation for the night. While doing so I tried calling out to tulo, just said his name over i and over again since I didn’t know if alash tad alash tal ashtu would work with an entity from another current. Anyway I sort of saw some vague after images moving around me so I stated that I wanted my attachments removed and then focused onm them. My body felt all tingly afterwards. Can’t say for sure right now but I don’t feel very attachey so maybe it worked.

Hey DK, during this impromptu ritual did you have light at your back? The muse of curiosity has struck me.


#9

Like, ethereal light, or a real light?
There was a ceiling light that could have been slightly shining on my back. However, I was not aware of any sort of ethereal light. I do, however, remember feeling a heat, though I don’t know if that would be related to the phenomena you’re interested in though.
What, exactly are you thinking? Is this a specific phenomena you’re looking for?


#10

Actual light. This idea started out as a vision that came while reading your account of what happened. From what I gathered one could use their own shadow as a way of connecting with these beings. Also I think the reason they don’t have names comes from an old axiom I heard a long time ago. “The name is the first binding.”


#11

DK ive been (slowly) working with the Kingdom of Flames. I am about to evoke Eshmak from the First Kingdom of Flames this weekend. He has dominion over a persons thoughts and perceptions being a spirit with power over the mental plane rather than the emotional. I wondered if you used him to help dissolve the mental structures still holding the habits together that that would consolidate the work of this Lord of Shadows? Just a thought.


#12

ah - well then, yes. There was. In that sense, there was a light right above me and I was definitely facing my shadow - actually - almost completely facing my shadow.

And fascinating - as they are the beings of binding, they cannot, themselves, be bound. Where did you hear that? That’s actually really cool.

Love the way you think sometimes Kitari. I would have never thought of that.


#13

Interesting. I need to get my books bought soon.


#14

You were serious back in the evoking entities from D&D thread! You evoked the Dungeon Master from the cartoon series! :smiley:

I know this post is long overdue but I wanted to make sure I could give it my full attention and really explain it right.

Years ago in high school there seemed to be a recurring thing with people coming to me and saying they were bound. By this they would usually mean that there were blockages that they couldn’t explain keeping them from using certain abilities. I didn’t understand why this was happening or why they thought i would know how to fix it so I did some astral traveling and this is where things get fuzzy because I have the damnedest time remembering my astral projections. But I went into the astral plane to get as much information as I could on binding and when I came back to my body that was one of the first things that popped into my head and I meditated on it and came up with the explanation that this is sort of a metaphysical statement. A lot of people think of bindings as constrictive like handcuffs or an off the wall example i’ve heard is the meridians being tied in a knot. But a binding can also be a connection. That is the type of binding a name possesses. This has been the example i’ve seen anyway. Like why farmers don’t name the animals that go to slaughter because it gets them too attached. Or how parents don’t let their kids name strays because they always end up keeping them then. The giving of a name from parent to child brings them into connection with the family etc.

So brilliant! And so true too. Name’s are extremely powerful, there is no doubt about that!

Magic targeting a person inevitably uses that person’s name. If one doesn’t have a person’s ‘real’ name, can give a name to that person oneself and use this name in ritual to the same effect? Perhaps one could perform some sort of baptismal ceremony to do so. After all, names are merely given by other humans.


#19

You don’t always need a name for magickal targeting. I’ve been given magickal targets that were completely anonymous in identity and just saw a picture of them and still got the results intended. The idea is to establish that person as your target. You can do this in any way from saying their name to looking at a picture or even just imagining being in the same room with them.
