Circle For Archangel Michael at Magika Sunday, Oct 1

My friends, I would like to invite each and every one of you to come to 107 Federal Street in Salem, Massachusetts on Sunday, October 1st at 3:00 PM in the hour of the sun to attend a circle in honor of The Archangel Michael and all the angelic powers who watch over us. We will be asking Archangel Michael and all of the angels to help humankind in promoting peace, love and harmony throughout the world. Unless human beings become aware of the harm that they are doing to mother Earth through their continued negativity and hatred, we will continue to see the type of worldwide weather disasters, earthquakes and other calamities that we have been seeing of late. This is not the wrath of god. This is the result of human negativity and hatred being transmitted into nature and nature is rebelling. We reap what we sow.

As Giordano Bruno said, everything in the universe is connected. Even things that seem to be inanimate have a spiritual aspect to them or in other words, a soul. Humanity is hurting the soul of the Earth through hatred and negativity! We must pray to the Angelic forces to help humanity to change its ways and adopt light and love in place of hatred! We will ask for this in our circle.

We will also use this wonderful occasion to dedicate and consecrate the Chapel of the Archangel Michael at Magika. There is no cost to attend and participate in the circle. The only currency that I ask you to bring is the currency of love and prayer! If you can’t join us in person, please join us from where ever you are by calling on Archangel Michael and the angelic forces at 3pm and join us spiritually. I hope to see you all there! Many blessing of love and light to you all !

Parking Note — Please park in nearby public parking. There is no on-street parking at our new location. You can park for a reasonable rate at the City of Salem Lot on Bridge Street, or other public lots downtown Salem. It is a pleasant walk to our new location in the historic McIntire District, and it will be a fair day.

Hurricane Closure

Hello my friends. Due to the close approach of Hurricane Jose, we want our staff and friends to be safe, so we are electing to be closed on Wednesday, Sept 20 – all day. We will be back on Thursday, opening at 11 am as usual.

Hate Speech?

To all of my friends… and maybe a few who are not… It has recently come to my attention that of late some of the shops in Salem have been experiencing negative reviews in social media advertising sites, and social media in general. For what it’s worth, they are not the only victims — have also experienced these things on Yelp, TripAdvisor, and others. The bashing has been wide-spread and it is clear that this is being conducted by those seeking to cause harm to local business either directly or via their minions under their control. We reflect, “An Harm Ye None…” Doing this breaks the Wise Law of the 4Fs, Flax, Flags, Fodder, Frey (Frig). Flax… never take the clothing off the backs of anyone; Flags or homes… never compromise the roof over anyone’s head; Fodder or food… never take food of their tables; Frey or Frig signifying love… never compromise the love of their family members and friends. I’d add to that one more “F” for freedom. We should all be free of such.

These are the Laws of the Ancient Craft. Breaking these suggests that you are not one of us. The God and Goddess known who you are — and maybe do others. Friend or Foe, I have never done this to any local business. There is enough for all to go around, and I offer the best wishes for all local business no matter who you are. Those conducting this do so out of greed, avarice, and jealousy.

Watching how the minions triangulate this to deflect suspicion is clever as well as interesting to observe, yet it is not rocket science to see what is going on. Many are being victimized — In the end, Three-Fold will engage naturally. The Goddess gives and takes away. Build community rather than attempt to destroy it.

I am, and remain, available. If you have a difference with me please call and speak to me. Hiding behind the keyboard with your whispers degrades you, and all of the Craft. My blessings to all of the shops in Salem that you may prosper.

Lecture / Class Abstract:

From distant antiquity, the choirs of angels have existed. All religions recognize intermediary spirits between the Divine and humanity. In the purest sense, an angel is a messenger relaying power and wisdom between worlds. They exist to uphold the Divine Laws. Lastly, as mediators of the forces of creation, their aid may be courted for aid in all matters (mundane and spiritual). This class draws from the Hermetic synthesis of the Italian Renaissance, the Angelic Art taught by Madeline Montalban, and the Greek Magical Papyri. Both theory and practice will be addressed.

Some highlights include (but are not limited to):
~~ A Brief Overview of comparative angelology
~~ One’s Holy Guardian Angel in magical lore
~~ Guidelines and Preparations to Angelic Magic
~~ Considerations for Prayer and Meditation
~~ Divining your personal Moon and Sun Angels
~~ The Archangels of the Elements and Planets (basic correspondences)
~~ Methods of Petitioning (Italian Stregoneria, American Conjure, Ceremonial Magic)

A brief resource list will be shared for further study. Please bring a notebook and writing utensil to the class.  (Recording of the class is permitted so long as the participant notifies us at the start of class).

Passages-My Brother Victor

My dear friends. It is with a heavy heart that I offer that my older brother Victor, age 87 years young, passed into the Light on Monday February 6, 2017 at 1:01 AM Eastern Time. He was a bearer The Light, and now carries that into The Light with our Ancestors. Our family has many beliefs as do many of yours. Victor was a member of the Church of Christ LDS (Mormon) and was respected in his church and neighborhood in which he resided. He affectionately helped care for many and was known by those in Florida where he resided as “Grandpa.” Religion was never an issue for us, and while we differed in our paths we all shared a belief in doing good for others, as that is expected of us by the Divine, however you may personify He/She/Them. My brother is survived by a daughter, Roberta, grandchildren Mark and Maddie, and a great-granddaughter Lilliana.
