It took awhile for me to actually write a REAL post on here. My name
is Soror A. M. L, I am 40 years old. I have studied
Witchcraft/Ceremonial magic and Chaos magic for about 7 years now,
although I have studied some form of magic most of my life, since
preteens. I have worked with the IOT in the novice program completed
my six months in Liber MMM and created my Alphabet of Desire. I was an
initiated priestess in a coven at one point, Minervaled in the OTO and
still have some friends in the OTO in my area. I study an eclectic
type of Ceremonial Magick, I have worked on what was my version of the
Abramelin Operation, the Goetia etc. Study the Qabala, in fact I have
an article coming out in Konton magazine for the Spring Issue;
as well as ShadowPlayzine, I have been talking to the editor, although
the domain seems to be down, I have been talking to the editor. My
article is about how the Qliphoth applies to the great work, from
Kenneth Grant's point of view. I love to write and I use science,
(physics and psychology) in my magical work, finding a great many
I have been reading Tarot since I was 16, that is 24 years now and use
it actively in my work with the Tree of Life. I used to read for
clients and have worked in some clubs in the area, one for the City
Weekly Creepy crawl at Halloween. I have my own system in my magical
work where I pull a tarot card and work with it for awhile, in that
paradigm. Also I have worked to some extent in Enochian magic. Not my
best subject however, I always find myself having to work on it as a
side project. I work almost totally in bibliomancy in my magical work.
Through sheer coincidence and symbolism.
I also have studied Santeria, Hindu beliefs, Strega, sex magic, tantra
to some extent, practices and alchemy involved with that, also spent
two years studying Lilith and other Hebrew mysticism as well as the
Book of Enoch. Have a passion for Angelology and Demonology. I took
Hebrew in college for a semester. I also mix Chaos magic practices
and Ceremonial practices together. I work with herbs for magic and
health, Oils, make incense, I have worked in different forms of
divination, pendulum, I ching to some extent, Runes(for a couple of
years although not my favorite, my best work is done with the tarot
I am really into Eastern beliefs, quite a bit and tend to have a
Taoist attitued. Why I have looked into Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism.
Right now I am working with the Thelema paradigm, exclusively. I am
studying the Gems from the Equinox, and other Ceremonial Tests, also
began useing the Thoth deck, for a specific reason. Do Star Rubies
every day and need to start working on meditation again every day. I
am just very busy. This leads me to my private life.
I work for a major sporting goods chain at the corporate office, in
accounts payable. I am also a single mother of a 17 year old son, and
a 12 year old daughter. My son is with me full time, my daughter part
time. I am also a full time student. I am an anthro and psych major,
anthro I am mainly studying anthropology of religion and I am a
philosophy minor. I am an undergrad senior, I am supposed to graduate
not this fall, but the following one. I want to go to grad school,
possibly for social work. My life is quite hectic.
I also added some pictures to the pictures section. Oh, and a
shameless plug, I am the Weblist owner for Illuminated_Dimensions
which I supposed to be mainly about how we can apply things like
science, psychology, physics and mix it with older belief systems. I
have written a paper about how super string theory and quantum physics
correlate to magic. I am not a physicist however...my big thing
lately, is Jung and how he used mysticism(Qabala and Tarot) in
psychotherapy and human thought through universal symbolism. It is
interesting for me, because I have taken a lot of classes on different
religions from around the world in my college education, from
Egyptology(including death rituals and mummfication, and we learned
some about heiroglyphics), to Creation Stories from the Middle East,
Belief systems of the Quechua Indians in Peru, I am presently in a
class on Native American Religion. Myth Magic and Religion, I studied
everything from African Religion, to that if Hasidic Jews and Orthodox
Jews. Mainly it is how man thinks about religion. I see definite
correlation in how humans DO have universal ideas and beliefs and they
have through out the history of mankind. Usually it deals with
dualities. That is my main thought.
In the Thelema paradigm, I am interested in the Great Work, but mainly
having to do with the journey of that from Adeptus Minor, to the Babe
of the Abyss and what happens there. I want to write about it one day.
But I want to possibly experience it first. My work on the Abramelin
Operation, I did on my own. I am wanting to go through the heirarchy
and I am following the A.: A.: model.
Well, this is long and this is me. Hope this one gets posted.
