In an attempt to raise the collective consciousness and vibration of the planet to welcome in the New Earth, adepts eventually reach a state of grace in which they are able to perceive new aspects of causation towards suffering, digression of spiritual growth by the amnesia caused during human incarnation birthing cycles, and newfound options toward sustaining momentum of transfiguration while still alive in the material plane. The adept discovers that a key component to ascension relies on willingly choosing to abandon reincarnation altogether, while simultaneously remaining invested in the evolution of the human collective. This balancing act rarely reaches a point of success because everything protecting the construct of the system tries to stop her.
Mirrors are often revered in magical workings for their capability of opening portals into other dimensions, the spirit world, and realms beyond our understanding. While it may seem like a tale out of dark folklore, and the substance of spooky campfire stories, there is historical and quantum context to the claims.
It has often been understood and taught that an initiate must first reach out to a specific Spirit, Entity, Totem, or Deity they wish to work with as their chosen Patron in order to pursue an alliance with them. But what is less often acknowledged is the more important occurrence in which Patrons choose their initiates first without being asked to. An invitation to become an initiate is extended from the Patron because they recognize their own attributes, coherence, and compatibility within the new adept, and want to help them or grow their reach within humanity. This could be to help them spread awareness, or offer them protection and guidance.
If we do feel ready to work with a Patron but haven’t felt their presence yet, we can ask them to appear and respond to us. We can invite them to make their presence known so that a relationship can develop. This is an important step that we often overlook when working with new energies. We cannot just expect protection or favors without earning it. A Patron represents those who emulate what they are known for. And this can extend beyond cultural, ethnic, or spiritual lineages.
Often referred to as the Hat Man, Shadow Figure, or Humanoid Black Mass, a Shadow Person is typically described as a very tall, solid black figure, that is typically in the form of a humanoid type of entity. The do not have a face, although sometimes arms and fingers are noticeable. They are seen arching in contorted stances but are not especially animated. They linger, and hover higher than a person would stand, often in the corner of a room, or at the end of a hallway. Some people describe them being eight feet or taller in height, and sometimes appear as tall as the ceiling of a room. Their size grows over time. Their lower body tends to morph into a solid black mass that blends in with, and bleeds into, the space they are occupying. So it’s mostly the torso and head that appear in human like form.
If you have felt vulnerable to dark thoughts, negativity being projected onto you by
others, or just felt blah, doing a circle of protection can really help you shed those dark
clouds which can offer you clarity going forward. Think of a rainstorm that happens in
the forest. From afar, fog can build up which limits the view. The rain is dreary, cold, and
unsettling. Doing a circle of protection acts as rays of sunlight to cut through the fog and
lift the density which provides a clear view for a longer distance.
This Lucifer installation is part of a bigger “Morning Star” installation series, which depicts the fallen angel struggling among a webbing of telegraph lines. The massive statue, created from wax and real feathers, is suspended over a former altar space. Ornate stained glass windows illuminate the contrasts of light and shadow that are cast over the statue, intensifying the ominous statement that many have tried to interpret it to be. Perhaps it is intentional that Mr. Fryer has not personally released a statement on what the statue is meant to represent exactly, but we can draw quite a few conclusions as to what he was intending to express.
