THE MAGICK OF SOLOMON – FREE ON YOUTUBE

MOSRATE

THE MAGICK OF SOLOMON, 2nd Edition is an 85 minute video documentary written and narrated by Anthropologist and ceremonial magician, Carroll “Poke” Runyon, Magister of America’s oldest continually operating Magical Lodge, The Ordo Templi Astartes (O.T.A.).

The first part of the video offers a history of Western Magick, illustrated with graphics and displays, setting forth the author’s theory, based on his own research and experiments, that of visions of spirits obtained by magicians in medieval times were subjective and hypnotic rather than hysterical hallucinations.

RATING: 5 Charley’s
First,
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.

RITUAL#2
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.

JUNG
“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
Enjoy the video and the many lessons it teaches.

JINN MAGIK
Practical Jinn Magick:
Rituals to Unleash the Powers of the Fire Spirits
By Corwin Hargrove
magikal
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

DIJINN
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.

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.

OVERALL RATING OF BOTH SERIES: 5 Charley’s
The first thing I have to share with you is, that I am not a big fan of network “reality” Ghost Hunting shows. I find they tend to have very little “reality” and decent research techniques in them and way too much manufactured drama as a backstory. These are the main reasons such shows are referred to in TV production parlance as docu-dramas.

A Haunting on Potter Street – The Potter Street Station

But then I discovered Steve Shippy, A.K.A. Prozak, the Rapper turned Ghost Hunter on Amazon Prime. First I was impressed with the excellent production value of each show. Then, the well-organized and well equipped Ghost Hunting investigations, he and his team is second to none.

Third, the results the teams gets in terms of video footage and recorded Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) sent many a chill down my spine. Of course watching such shows in complete darkness helps foster such goose-bump reactions.

Finally, its Shippy’s approach to the reason he Ghost Hunts. He comes across as genuinely wanting to, not only to help the people who are undergoing unpleasant supernatural intrusions, but also the poor spirits, trapped here, who are causing the haunting situations in the first place. He’s not driven to prove the paranormal is real or not, he just accepts what is happening is real, and then adapts a humanistic approach to deal with the situation at hand.

In Shippy’s defense of not being taken on a “rube ride”, the team always conducts thorough background research in each case. And examine the witnesses’ claims to detect possible fraud and sleight-of-hand trickery. So his acceptance as to the reality of the haunting is a guarded one.

Unfortunately, not all haunts Shippy comes across are all just creaking floors and random knocks in the night. Some are downright cantankerous and demonic in nature, causing vandalism and bodily injury. For encounters like these, Shippy enlists the services of professional Exorcists or Mediums to conduct site cleansings.

While on the subject of professionals, one reoccurring guest Ghost Hunter is Brian Harnois, one of the original team members of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S.). Their show, Ghost Hunters, premiered way back in 2004 on the SyFi channel. It was the first show of its kind and popularized paranormal reality TV and Ghost Hunting. (Wikipedia). Brian’s catch phrase is “Dude RUN!”

Brian’s style of Ghost Hunting is dramatically opposite of Shippy’s. Brian tends to be more confrontational and in- (the Ghost’s) face, forcing the entity into a physical altercation. This usually results in Brain getting the worst of these exchanges, resulting often in deep red scratches or other unpleasant painful side-effects. Admittedly these touches of “drama” makes for good TV, and satisfies one part of the required reality TV formula.

But it’s not the usual goofiness of other Ghost Hunter shows where the team members are arguing with each other, till they hear a bang. At which point they abruptly end their petty manufactured squabble and begin screaming “What was that? What was that?” Maybe if you had been Ghost Hunting and not reliving high-school, you’d know what that was. But, I digress.

Brian unfortunately brings a lot of baggage with him to the show.  A lot of Ghost Hunter fans are not too happy seeing him again. And they enjoy the fact that he is being brutally be resulted by unearthly claws. A Google search will give you the details. But Shippy fully supports him and respects Brian’s many years of experience and advice.

Now the question remains, is Shippy faking it all? I can’t answer that. Simply I don’t know. But after bingeing my way through all these shows, and seeing and hearing all the circumstantial evidence documented in them, I’ve come away with the conclusion that there may be something out there  lurking in the shadows, worthy of more investigation. Ultimately to be proven if it’s indeed real or not.

THE AFTERLIFE INVESTIGATIONS: THE SCOLE EXPERIMENTS – FREE DOCUMENTARY

AFTERI

For five years a group of mediums and scientists witnessed more phenomena than in any other experiment in the history of the paranormal, including: recorded conversations with the dead, written messages on sealed film, video of spirit faces and even
spirit forms materializing.

THE SCOLE EXPERIMENTS

2PAFTERLIFE
Supposed Ghost Photos captured on unexposed film.

BALLS OF LIGHT
Swirling balls of light, seen and captured on video.

ALIEN
Really odd, an “Alien” captured on video, but not seen.

RATING: 3 Charley’s.
Undoubtedly, the claims made in this video, along with the many photos and videos presented, are incredible. With a complete suspension of belief that is. Over all it’s a well-produced video.
Most of its source material is from the original VHS tapes, made during the séances held in 1993 through 1998.  These have not been remastered, so expect some blurriness here and there.

RM
As a bonus, the Scole team visited the famed “Radio Medium” Marcello Bacci of Grosseto Italy and filmed many of his Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) sessions.

My personal take on this documentary is that a great deal of it could be authentic, and you will get the chills while viewing it. But in viewing it a number instances, I felt the producers couldn’t resist the temptation not to “pad it” with either visual effects or over-the-top claims.  After all,  job number one for them is to create compelling “reality” TV.
