Powdered Black Cat Bone with ceremonial 'Black Handled Knife"

"The Key specifies that the blade be quenched in a mixture of the blood of a black cat and the juice of hemlock. Each of these ingredients is important. Substituting a plant for the blood doesn't make a lot of sense to me, as there is already a plant in the mixture. I think that the attempt to veganize grimoiric magic is dangerous, and requires one to discard the animism which is the underlying basis of this magic.

The blood of the black cat is not only important for its Saturnine attributes, it is also important because it infuses the blade at the moment of quenching with (at least some part of) the power of the cat, a living spirit. Have you ever seen a cat react to the presence of spirits? The spirit attached to the blade will literally fight for you against hostile spirits, should that become necessary.

As for using your own blood, the best I can do is tell you my experience.

I have such a knife, quenched in water infused with hemlock and my own blood. It is one of the most potent magical objects I have ever seen, which is saying something -- I once had in my possession a talisman that had been smuggled out of an archaeological dig in Ur, a genuine bronze-age artifact, that could and would, on its own whim, summon dust devils strong enough to push cars off the road. My knife might not be that powerful, but it has the potential.

I paid a high price for it, and nearly died several times. I quenched it on an appropriate election, at the culmination of an arduous 14 day purification. For unimportant reasons, I was unable to attach the handle at that time, and so I wrapped the works up in appropriate silk, stowed it in my pack, and continued on my way.

Soon after, I became very ill, with what I thought was a bad cold. This developed into pneumonia, and should have been the death of me, as at the time, I was homeless, and traveling south as quickly as possible to escape the onset of winter and to try to find work. Along the way, several people tried to kill me, for reasons ranging from the color of my skin to outright psychopathy, requiring me to defend myself with extreme prejudice. At one point, I had to fight off a pack of feral dogs that thought I was dinner. Etc.

Many years passed before I was able to complete the knife. I waited for another appropriate election, and attached the handle. Brandishing the knife, I recited certain bits of the Key which I felt were appropriate to the occasion. As I did so, the smoke of my incense struck a line due east, and then circled around me and the altar, forming a perfect circle that hung about 18 inches off the ground and did not disperse until I ended the rite. This happened outdoors, in a deep wash at sunrise, where there are *always* air currents as the rising sun warms the air on the nearby mountains, causing it to expand and push colder air down the washes.

So, in sum, I think you can use your own blood, if you are prepared to deal with the consequences of doing so. Your experience won't be the same as mine, probably, assuming you have a safe home, have not recently been trespassing in the territory of a powerful deceased medicine man, have forms of protection at your disposal, and so on. In short, be prepared."

SAMMAEL Fetish Idol


"Samael: (Hebrew) meaning "poison of God" Although described in the Zelator Ritual as an Archangel, Samael is more often described as an Archdemon, or as the Qlippotic force of the Sephirah of Hod on the Black Pillar. In this ritual [Zelator 1=10] Samael is portrayed as the guardian of the Path of Evil who prevents the candidate from journeying upon the Path of Darkness. Samael may be visualized as a black winged bird-like entity with glowing eyes. He wears a robe, tabard and nemyss, all black. He hold a large black sword."

Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition
~Chic & Sandra Tabatha CIcero~

"In direct association with the Qlippothic forces-Samael:The Desolation of God, or The Left-Hand
"Hod is the complex working of the will of the Absolute. Samael represents the barren desolation of a fallen and failed creation. the outer form is Theuniel, 'The filthy Wailing Ones of God.'

Adrammelech:Powerful King

To Samael, Adrammelech is attributed. "This name is found in Fourth Kings: XVII, 29-31 'And the men of Babylon made Succoth-benoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hamath made Ashima, and the Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites burnt their children in the fire of Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim."

Consecration of the parts that will make up the SAMMAEL Fetish Idol as seen in a Shamanic Drumming Journey involved in the last Full Blood Moon Eclipse and the Shadow SELF workings...

continued Shadow work - Daoist/Taoist techniques

I am doing some extended Shadow
 association with the full blood moon eclipses...that
 started with the Full blood moon eclipse tetrad in

the Shadow SELF Work I am doing presently is building
 on the Paredos: From the Magical Greek Papyri-
100’s B.C.- 400’s A.D. and the Secret Teachings of
 Esoteric Daoist Magic-Temple of the Celestial Cloud-
Professor Jerry Alan Johnson PH.D D.T.C.M. (Zheng’s
 Daoism)Well for me too often-in our Society as a whole-
Shadow Energy is associated as something ‘bad’ rather 
than looking at it as a holistic part of each
 own work (which was Not intentional-in the beginning)
 has evolved into a series of ritual workings that intends to
 meet this Shadow aspect of Self (which I have done) 
balance it with the LVX Self- build on better understanding
 of that aspect of Self and work with it through 
historical/cultural disciplines-that recognize and work with
 the specifics of this energy. 
It has been an interesting and educational journey thus

it is a journey that it both exciting and
 intimidating in scope...very experimental and
 progressive for me...I am making meticulous
 notes-to hopefully better understand it-and
 perhaps be in a better position to share the
 material and approach...

In the Daoist/Taoist Shadow work...some of
 the progressive Work is broken down into
Elemental approaches: EARTH & SKY,
WATER, and HEAVEN & EARTH...there is 
also 3 other sequences: [energy] 'Channels &
 Organs, Cave/Dark Room, and a concluding 
section on 'Hexing a Victim's Shadow'...

 I will be the first to say-that I am totally at fault

 for 'cultural appropriation' in this area-but-it is

 it with the utmost respect, and recognise that I

 have been led here for a reason...
A great deal of this Shadow Work-also involves

 Shamanic Drum Journeys...which have been

 instrumental in the Work itself...
This work draws heavily from the Disciplines of

 Qigong, specifically mastering the Wuji postures

, 1-10 Meditations (Secret tongue seal &

 Visualizations, and the Three Invocations

 (3 Divine Invocations-Secret Sounds to open the

 Thread of Life, Creativity & Consciousness)...
