I've decided that, in between my normal posts (as few as they've been), it would be nice to do some signal boosting. Therefore, on a semi-regular basis I will try to post articles and blog posts I found interesting and/or worthwhile for your enjoyment, dear readers. :) I might not include all the articles I found interesting, but these will be the highlights.
To start with, two magicians that I look up to in one way or another were interviewed on internet radio shows. There was Gordon White from Rune Soup making a guest appearance on Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole. Around the same time, there was my esteemed teacher of Strategic Sorcery, Jason Miller, over at Paranormal Palace Radio talking about Financial Sorcery. I highly suggest going and listening to both. There were a lot of interesting things discussed, and I for one enjoyed it immensely.
Speaking of Financial Sorcery, Brother Ash did a review of the book. I say review, but he stated that it's more of a "Go out and buy this NOW!!!" statement.
Over at The Digital Ambler, polyphanes has some pretty awesome stuff going on. If you're in the D.C. area, he is now teaching classes on a number of magical topics, centering around Hermetics and Geomancy. In addition, he is providing readings at Sticks and Stones on a regular basis! In addition, this week he took advantage of a Mercury election to empower some of his mercury-related talismans and gemstones. The ritual he used is very interesting, as is the orgone generator he used to boost the whole thing. I've always had a background interest in learning more about orgone generators, and after hearing about his results, I'm a bit closer to experimenting.
One area of interest I've always been drawn to is that of lucid dreaming. I've never really been able to achieve much there because of the effects of obstructive sleep apnea on my REM sleep. However, the solution to that is in the works. But in the meantime, Karmaghna is looking into the use of dietary supplements to assist with lucid dreaming, and will be updating with his findings.
Thus far my favorite post, Skyllaros over at The Crossroads Companion posted about the Dimensional Sphere Sigil Technique. Reading through it, I definitely want to try it! The concept of not only firing off the sigil, but also filling your sphere with it and it moving your sphere closer to your goal...something in there strikes me as solid.
That's all I have for now, but the week isn't over yet. ;)
