RATING: 5 Charley’s
this video comes with a caution:


The reason for this is perfectly understandable warning is that the video records actual Magikal workings by practitioners of Solomon’s Magick. This is the first time filming like this has been allowed. Sometimes people often rush into situations where they may encounter a problem that they will have no control over. Or they will be disappointed with not getting the results they are seeking.

That’s why when dealing with any type of ceremonial of Magikal working, it is better to proceed slowly. Get the proper training and acquire the discipline you need to devote yourself to the process.

The Tree of Life, the Kabbalah and its important place in mystic tradition is taught by the Magister.

This video is extremely fascinating and will give you an excellent introduction to this particular  mystery school of Magick. It concentrates on developing and applying the powers of the mind.

Runyon, the facilitator, cites the work of Dr. Carl Gustav Jung as a reconciliation between Magikal philosophy and practices. Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst founded analytical psychology. His ground breaking insights in to the human psyche has gone on to influence such fields as psychiatry, anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy, and religious studies.

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awake.”
Dr. Carl Gustav Jung

Jung was fascinated with Tarot cards and believed the imagery on them could serve as a doorway to the unconsciousness. He also practiced the I-Ching Oracle for over 30 years. Because of these occult pursuits, he was referred to as “A Mystic.” He last book, published in 1958 dealt with UFOs. It was entitled, Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies.

Runyon goes on to quote Jung:
“Beneath and beyond the personal subconscious mind, there flows a vast deep sea of dream images and forgotten lore.”

This observation lead to Jung coining the term, the
Collective Unconscious, which is made of Archetypical images that dwell and influence us in the shadowy realm of the unconscious mind.

In both cases, Jung’s theories, and the Magik that Runyon practices call on exploring and harnessing the latent powers of the mind. In the quote below, it can be said that Runyon’s Magik philosophy dovetails nicely with Jung’s beliefs, or visa-versa. Perhaps Jung’s beliefs dovetails with ancient Magikal philosophies?

“The human imagination, inspired by its divine creator, is the most powerful force in the universe. A river of hopes and dreams that bears us all along, on its flowing course from the beginning, to the end of time. From planet earth out to the farthest stars.”
Carroll “Poke” Runyon, Magister

Practical Jinn Magick:
Rituals to Unleash the Powers of the Fire Spirits
By Corwin Hargrove
Jinn Magick is simple to execute, and the results can be some of the best you will find in all of occultism. Much has been written about The Fire Spirits, known as the Jinn (or Djinn), but books of practical Jinn Magick are rare. Hardly any exist, and those that do are often a disappointment. This book reveals a practical method for calling on the Jinn and receiving a response. There are forty-two rituals, and the magick can help with passion, influence, destruction, and transformation.

Legends of the Fire Spirits
Jinn and Genies from Arabia to Zanzibar

By Robert Lebling – Forward by Tahir Shah
When Westerners think of a genie, the first image that comes to mind may be Barbara Eden in her pink harem pants or the illuminated blue buffoon from the animated Disney film Aladdin. But to the people of the Arab and Islamic worlds, the picture is dramatically different. Legends of the Fire Spirits looks beyond Westernized caricatures to immerse the reader in the vibrant lore of the jinn—the wondrous, often troublesome, and sometimes terrifying spirit beings of ancient Arab and Islamic tradition.

The Vengeful Djinn: Unveiling the Hidden Agenda of Genies
By Rosemary Ellen Guiley and Philip J. Imbrogno
If you fear one thing in life, fear the Djinn. This groundbreaking book presents the findings of Rosemary Ellen Guiley and Philip J. Imbrogno’s investigation into the powerful and mysterious interdimensional beings known as Djinn or genies. It reveals what the djinn are, where they can be found–and their hidden agenda against the human race.

Working with material compiled from a variety of sources–including their own case files, Middle Eastern lore, the Qur’an, teachings of Islamic scholars, and the latest theories in quantum physics–the authors explore the relationship between the djinn, demons, fairies, shadow people, and extraterrestrials. They discuss the military’s interest in these clandestine beings, offer eyewitness accounts of modern human encounters with the djinn, and reveal the location of interdimensional entry points in North America.
