blue star kachina will melt your face, red star kachina will lop off your head

Not the pretty picture plastic shamans espouse, is it? And about as accurate.

We got this letter a while ago, (I’ll show it to you below) and  a recent interaction on reddit/occult called to my mind the increasing insurgence of interest in American Indian ritual magick, prophecy and superstition that comes along every few years.

The shallow and culturally poor glom off bits and pieces of really badly copied magick, from a people they don’t know.  The slipstreaming never stops.   The cry of “But I have so much respect for Native Americans/First Nations!” is very shallow. To respect a people, you must first know about them! I have actually been to the reservations of many many different tribes, and talked to the people. I have family living on  reservations, do you? 

The post I had an issue with on reddit was presented by a boy, of working age who had a father divorcing a mother. The mother was an “alleged” witch, and was using magick against the father to gain the upperhand in the divorce. Fine by me. I am not going to get in the way of another occultist’s will. People started trying to help the son, even though he was a self admitted plebian/non-magick user, and had no evidence that the father was not an abomination. Then they started pimping out American Indian culture to him, like a cheap and easy cure all.

They kept repeating the New Thought zany mantra to buy some sage and “smudge” the house.  These are sacred traditions. You cannot buy sage at a Wiccan store and call it good. It has to be harvested respectfully, with will and intent, at the right time of year, during a specific part of the plant’s cycle, and from a specific species, which is very rare and not available commercially, generally. 

Occultists, we are better than this. Stop repeating plastic shaman tripe. If you genuinely want to learn about a tribe’s medicine ways, move to the reservation. Find an elder to teach you. Commit yourself to serving his or her family and taking care of them. This is what students of the medicine ways do for their teachers in real tribes with real medicine traditions, all over the world. 

Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth. – Madhasudhana, Krsna

This symbiotic relationship in the oral tradition between teacher and student, where the teacher gives the tradition and the student gives service is sacrosanct and dates back to the dawn of man. This is what is lost on these people who go to a sweat lodge ceremony and pay $500 to do it. Medicine ways taught by the elders are free in American Indian cultures.  Pay it forward by buying their artwork in return. Do their yardwork. Bring them food, blankets or other necessities. This is the red way, which none of the plastic shamans are going to teach you. 

 The letter (anonymous)

 
I have watched a video caller the Secret Alchemy, which made a connection with the Holy cross  and Hopi prophesies of The Blue Kachina.
First thing came into my mind when I saw the name Blue Kachina was the Blue Twinstar, and I have been wondering if they are connected. As the video suggests, the Blue Kachina is actually a massive explosion in the center of our Galaxy that happens every 13000 years, and some people have estimated that next explosion will happen on the winter solstice of 1212.
One of the reason why I thought of the Blue Twinstar was because I though that the description of the effects of The Kachina explosion on a macrocosmic level seem to fit the changes that one would encounter on a microcosmic level, perhaps as a total result of the Great Work, effects such as transcendence of the Soul over Matter and the Unification whilst remaining individualized.
I hope I wont offend anyone with my curiosity, as my thoughts are solely based on my own subjective observations.

 My reply:

 
The Hopi are related to the Anasazi, small desert people who were once traders to the Aztec nation. There were quite a number of religious ideas exchanged,  including the idea that you had to sacrifice a lot of people to get what you wanted from the gods, in weird, festive and sometimes terrifying ways. In one excavation at an ancient Hopi well, over 90 skeletons were found, gifts to the underground water serpent god, probably.  They live all over the world now, but their homeland is in a small corner of the American Southwest between New Mexico and Arizona. I visited the “Mesas” in 2009. The place isn’t without problems, but one of the things that needs to be known about the Hopi is that they are very private, much more so than some other tribes I’ve encountered.
 
 
 
Isolated desert peoples distill concepts very effectively and come up with very innovative spiritual practice due to their isolation.  I don’t know that the Hopi believe this story about the galaxy explosion, and even if some do, don’t think that the whole tribe holds the opinion. Many of them don’t even know the meaning behind the religious symbols on the Katsinas body and accoutrements. In some people’s opinion, Hopi spirituality  is like a dead language – still practiced, not really evolving. Others believe that only a few dedicated individuals, exclusively medicine men and women can make decisions about the religion and evolve it. It’s not clear what occurs inside the tribe unless you are a part of the tribe. Even then, there are secret societies within  the tribe itself that share nothing with others in the tribe already.
 
From what I understand the Blue Star Kachina was not clearly identified. It could be either a spacecraft, god or a planet that lands or crashes on earth, the last stage in the so-called Hopi Prophecies. It doesn’t really match the status of the TwinStar as the generating seed of all existence, the connection that bridges Malkuth to Ain Soph Aur, or all of the other curious properties that we’ve been studying all of these years at TAI. 

I don’t know that the video you watched (link was removed) is made by the Hopi people. The maker does not name any elders or medicine people in the video description or credits. This is important. If it’s not made by the Hopi people, or someone who has lived with them a long time,  it is highly offensive and should not be taken seriously at all. We’re allowed to speculate on syncreticism as much as we like – for example, wondering if the TwinStar is the Blue Star Kachina, but making a factual statement about a culture we don’t belong to like this is wrong.  The Hopi as a people are not generally ready to join the global conversation on magick and the occult, and until they are they need to be left alone, and their ideas need to be left to them to disseminate on their terms. This is the same right any culture has. 

If you want to find out about anything American Indian, it’s not untoward to call the tribe. Ask them. They might put you in touch with someone who is very passionate about the topic and wants help getting the word out. They might laugh at you. They might tell you to fuck off. It’s the only right way to find out.  You can also visit in person.  Set up a visit at the hotel they run and spend a few days or preferably a few weeks there. Accept the place and people for what it is.  The truth is that the Hopi know about as much as anyone else. It’s a form of cultural genocide to put a people on a pedestal and then be dissapointed with them when they fail to meet expectations. White tourists do this all the time with American Indians, forgetting that the reservations they are visiting are some of the most poverty stricken places on earth with all of the problems that face afflicted areas. 

The TwinStar

 

The TwinStar is alive, readily accessible, a proof of Abrahadabra. It has been created by m1thr0s alone, it’s not a nebulous prophecy, and it is presented on its own terms, outside of exclusive cultural boundaries. It doesn’t need to appropriate the Blue Star Kachina prophecy to legitimize it. It’s logically tight and can be experienced directly without taking anyones word on it. Sloppy intuitive and artistic interpretations are not for the serious occultist, especially when they are taking advantage of an exclusive culture that wishes to keep its ceremonies and beliefs secret for now.

 

 

There is an account of some Hopi etchings that have been reproduced for study within the tribe. The story goes that the etchings were made by lightning and the originals are in the Grand Canyon. It depicts a person surrounding by a serpent like an ouroboros serpent, and the persons head is cut off by the serpent. The elder referred to the serpent as the Purifier. The Purifier is a more sinister figure than the plethora of New Age and Conspiracy wingnuts  seem to want to believe, and considering there was a lot of human sacrifice going on in the past in the Hopi tribe, the cultural fixation on a REALLY BIG sacrifice is not far off from simply being a deeply embedded cultural memory and a longing to be redeemed by a big powerful sky god.  The prophecy states that the sky will be red one day when we wake up and the red star kachina, the Purifier will arrive to begin purification. Not much else is known (or else the Hopi have not been forthcoming about it). I assume it means a lot of blood shed and head rolling if its just a myth, and if it’s a real prophecy that will come true someday, your guess is as good as mine. Any assumptions are pretty much useless at this point, sort of like Eliphas Levi’s crackpot flowery theories about attaining World-of-Warcraft-esque occult achievement awards.

 

“To attain the SANCTUM REGNUM, in other words, the knowledge and power of the Magi, there are four indispensable conditions–an intelligence illuminated by study, an intrepidity which nothing can check, a will which cannot be broken, and a prudence which nothing can corrupt and nothing intoxicate. TO KNOW, TO DARE, TO WILL, TO KEEP SILENCE–such are the four words of the Magus, inscribed upon the four symbolical forms of the sphinx.”

“You are called to be king of air, water, earth and fire; but to reign over these four living creatures of symbolism, it is necessary to conquer and enchain them. He who aspires to be a sage and to know the Great Enigma of Nature must be the heir and despoiler of the sphinx: his the human head, in order to possess speech; his the eagle’s wings, in order to scale the heights; his the bull’s flanks, in order to furrow the depths; his the lion’s talons, to make a way on the right and the left, before and behind.”

 

Oh so it’s about despoiling the Sphinx, I get it. People fall too easily for “You have won a special prize” routine.  This whole line of shit is about a misconception about man’s relationship to nature. And that, the Hopi have not made the mistake of doing, which is perhaps the great lesson one can learn from all American Indian people, at least those that still follow the Good Red Road.

It baffles the wannabe tribe. “How could anyone not lose touch of their proper relationship to nature?” It’s the 1/16th Cherokee man’s disease to take the price of technology  and equate it with the  inevitable rape of nature. It’s sort of taken for granted that this will happen. That’s just not how it is all over the world among literally thousands of tribes of people. This is not how it is with very advanced science and the kind of science and technology the Abrahadabra Institute is interested in. However, the idea that nature must be conquered could never be more obvious to a person who is a part of the wannabe tribe.

I mean Nature created you, you worthless dweebs, it’s not like you can return the favor. “Oh no no no, Nature didn’t do that, God did that”. God. What the fuck is God?

The Hopi people have never espoused that this is to be translated as a comet, or Nibiru or whatever else the New Agers think up next. So it is important at least that if we want to make such theories, that we base them on our own thesis, and not on the prophecies of another people. They have access to all of the information we do today in astronomy but they do not equate the prophecies with stellar events. 

 

the procession of the aeon, 5775

 

It was April 2007 and I had just finished making out with a giant white dragon that referred to himself as Ptah. Alot of other weird things had been happening, and my pineal gland had been working overtime.

 

My friend, a consummate occultist – let’s call him “Dave” – had just called me at my house in Memphis, Tennessee concerned about my spiritual and physical welfare because I had been acting…weird. “The Crowned and Conquering Child” Ra Hoor Khut had shouted his epithet at me in order to get my attention just a day before. I didn’t know who or what that was, and then there was Ningishzidda, a serpent with an intense interest  in introducing me to The Book of the Law and training me in the art of classical Greek priestesshood.

He admitted to me that he was a follower of Jesus but didn’t tell very many because they wouldn’t understand. He thought Jesus was a god of war. I thought, and still think that he was mistaking Jesus for Zeus or some other war sky god, but I didn’t say so. 

“You need to listen to him, he’s your god. Do what he tells you to.”  he said, referring to Ningishzidda.

Dave never took anything too seriously but he was one of the best chaotes around and enjoyed the sinister side of magick. He epitomized the trickster spirit. So his revelation that Jesus was his ishta dev (chosen face of godhead) was a bit of a shock. 

A polytheistic Christian telling me to obey the voices of the sparkling green and gold snakes and dragons invading my house. 

The call was completely random, it was the second or third time we had spoken on the phone. I had listened to his account of his wife, soaking the King James bible in urine so the thing about being one of “them” didn’t really register the last time we had spoken.

“So…wait a minute. Last time I spoke to you, I heard about your wife peeing on a bible.”

“Yeah…she did…what you think I would marry some rube? She’s a witch.”

Apparently she didn’t like the rewrite anymore than Jews and Christian critics do.  

“I don’t get why you’re into Jesus I mean most Christians I know are totally retarded.”

“Oh the bible thumpers and Jesus loves everyone types? Yeah I fucking can’t stand them either. They’re a bunch of zombies.”

I told him everything that had been happening, the encounters with strange cthonic deities and acid-tripesque experiences. 

 “He’s trying to talk through me. I don’t know if I should”.  

“Let him talk. You need to obey him.”

My voice changed and deepened as I felt the serpent in my head take over my speech centers. I carefully controlled my mind so as to not interrupt the lightly pressing channel.

 “You need to stop doing that shit”

“What shit?” 

“Don’t play dumb with me”

“Oh…yeah….I think…I think I  know what you’re talking about. I’ll try to stop.”

A few weeks later I learned Dave had been doing cocaine and admitted he needed help. I didn’t even know he was addicted to cocaine or what the message was about. I used to feel uncomfortable with the channeling process like this but I’ve grown comfortable with it, since it’s also saved my ass more than once. 

They say initiation is dangerous and can drive a person insane. No one ever seems to explain why in great detail, nor do the dire warnings ever come attached to a person who will tell a personal tale of why.

The whole system of magickal orders and secret societies was born on the tide of the great mystery schools of the Greece and Italy, who in turn took a page from the cults of Mesopotamia: Sumer, Akkad, Assyria and Babalon as well as Egypt. Mithraism, the great religion of the Roman Empire nearly overtook Christianity in the race to become the world’s most popular religion. Masculine in nature, it shared an alliance with the cult of Cybele, “Magna Mater” the great mother, another powerful faction in the ancient world. These societies were undoubtedly collaborators in the greatest entheogenic party ever held – The Rites of Eleusis. The structure and initiation grades in these religions were designed to minimize risk of death, insanity and mistakes in one’s spiritual path. They were very important: senators and philosophers partook in the mysteries, but so did housewives and slaves, and there were no anti-drug laws.

At the time I went through this spiritual awakening, I was a student, trying to make sense of it all, in a very unhappy marriage and at the same time had always been a serious student of the occult.   I had just finished two years at an Art Renewal Center approved atelier, and was starting in on my first year in college. 

More importantly I had just begun examining m1thr0s’s work more closely about 6 months earlier in December, and with the unveiling of his latest work in April of 2007, the prototype to the Twin Trees, titled “The P’an Ku Arrangement” my mind was completely blown. 

Reflecting back now I wonder if Dave realized that the profile of  his god more closely matched Mithras than Yeheshuah, or Jesus for those vulgar enough to mix the Jewish heretic up with the Roman salute to the sky god, Zeus. (The Latin pronunciation for Jesus literally means “Hail Zeus”) I don’t know that Dave was a closet Mithraist or even mistaking Mithras for Jesus, and I don’t talk to him anymore so I can’t ask him. 

The celebration for Mithras in the Roman Empire took place at Winter Solstice, and the parallels between the invented religion of Christianity and Mithraism are blatant. Mithras was in fact a redeemer and born of the virgin goddess Anahita, a war goddess. Both consort and mother to Mithras, just like in the Christian mythology – Mary (may she be torn on the wheel) doesn’t do it by herself. The Christian god has sex with Mary to become human, that’s the reason why Catholic Christians think the trinity is still monotheism. God the Father is God the Son. Nothing like a little paganistic incest lore to spice up religion. Unfortunately the intention was never about fun, it was about control, and so while the divine can be incredibly sexy, the whole point of the Catholic Church and almost all subsequent Christian movements was to uphold the Word of Restriction. (See the Book of the Law for more on that)

So it’s all garbage essentially, which is why I practically gag when I hear people espousing the belief that they are “Christian Occultists”, or “Christian Mages”. To me it’s an oxymoron, and belies deeply embedded ignorance. Ra Hoor Khut is clear that it’s imperative that all of the old aeon religions be discarded, Christianity and Islam are his main targets, blind slave religions founded in the most recent Aeon, while he attacks secondarily the creeds of Hinduism, Buddhism, Shamanism and Judaism – religions founded not in the Age of the Father, but in the Age of the Mother before that. Tearing out the flesh of these bodies of religion and absorbing the edible nutrients, he encourages us to take what we need from these dying cults and use them as our food during his reign. 

This is why both m1thr0s and I continue to incorporate the best parts of Sanatana Dharma, (and most especially its left hand path jewel, Tantra) as well as elements of Tibetan Buddhism, Shamanism and Kabbalah.

In the Book of the Law several clues are left to us admist the tomfoolery of Aleister Crowley’s conflicted mind. (Yes, I believe he was FORCED to write and keep this book through the machinations of karmic laws he had triggered. His actions are very clear – first the book sat in a rubbish pile for years. Crowley was extremely uncomfortable with it. He was specifically told not to change a single letter, and to publish it quickly. He disobeyed both commands, letting it collect dust and then adding that nauseating poem, while adjusting spelling and grammar from the original script. Then he washed his hands of it by saying he didn’t have anything to do with writing it.

Nuit explains to us that the word of Sin is Restriction. Sin is a proper noun, and there is only one Sin in the occult record, that is the Moon God of Ur, the historical birthplace of Abraham. Immediately prior she makes what I believe is an insight into the nature of Had and Hadit as a Transtigridian Snake God (See my article on Ningishzidda, about midway through,  for more information on this). 

Ra Hoor Khut explains himself as a God of War and Vengeance, but vengeance for what? If Sin, the Moon God of Ur is the Restriction we’ve been fighting all along, then what was the so-called “Original Sin” he committed that Ra Hoor Khut wishes to avenge? Does it have anything to do with mankind? I think that it does, and so do several other deities I’ve contacted. 

Mithras, for one, appeared to me within a few months of my initiation, as a sort of spooky and cat-like sorcerous Lord of Time and Space, a friend of Ningishzidda and an officiator of the most important contract I was to make in my entire life, my dedication to Ningishzidda. I did not know at the time that the Mithra known to ancient Persia was the god of contracts, so it was a highly auspicious omen later when I found out and my occult practices were confirmed. (this will happen many times over  the course of a successful pathworking, but it was one of my more significant eye openers) 

I think that the deep conflict in the Middle East and the epic sexual revolution ignited in The United States of America is nearly at the heart of the Aeonic movement, and that Ra Hoor Khut’s reign shall be made on what transpires here and there within the next fifteen years. I believe this is why the United States population is so fixated on Israel and so-called Palestine.  I am not one to make predictions or prophecies, this is one educated guess. I will explain my reasons later, I promise.
