“Let the Magical Link be made strong!” (Aleister Crowley)
I want to share with you the inspiring craft of Frater Parusha. He works magical sigils and sacred symbols into corresponding metals, in accordance to principles of magick and alchemy. A couple of weeks ago, I received this beautifully crafted sigil of the A.’.A.’. (Sigillum Sanctum Fraternitatis A.’.A.’.). I opened it in my sanctum, and immediately, it was evident he had crafted it not only with care and excellence in a mundane sense, but also using his abilities as a trained magician and alchemist. Moreover, it was imbued with the force of a true aspirant and adept of our Order–a true sign of someone who doesn’t only read about magick, but practices it with zeal and verve.
In Magick in Theory and Practice (quoted above), Crowley dedicates a chapter to the subject of the “magical link.” He explains there that this magical link is one of the most neglected topics in magical literature, even though it is one of the most important factors of a magical operation. The magical link is what can connect the Will with the manifested intent of the operation. This is why this chapter is dedicated to the production of talismans, magical operations, and the work of the Philosophus. The Philosophus is one of the pivotal grades of the A.’.A.’., it decidedly determines who attains to the Lovers degree and who doesn’t, because it is the degree where the magical link is set and proven. Those unable to establish this link are doomed to remain arm-chair magicians at best, able to discuss theory but utterly unable to make their Will and magical force to manifest in this plane. In the end, the aspirant to the A.’.A.’. aims to unite the inner with the outer, and the high with the low. It is the magical link what makes this union possible, and the aspirant then becomes an Adept, having made of her body a talisman, consecrated and dedicated to the manifestation of the inner genius.
Frater Parusha’s work is a tangible example of the outer work of a magician and alchemist who is working beyond theory and delves into practice the right way.
“Let the Magical Link be made strong! It is ‘love under will’; it affirms the identity of the Equation of the work; it makes success Necessity.” (Crowley, MTP. Chapter XIV)

As most of you know I’m not only make this artwork, I consecrate them and I use them myself successfully as well. So the craft technique is required and the ability to consecrate them properly. Most of the pentacles available are nicely casted or mass produced. That are not the ones I make. The ones I make are special ones , a one of a kind unique pieces with a very special energy. (that is what I hear back from this who have them from me) They are very valuable tools that sometimes create very surprising situations. And that directly beats the idea that they are placebo’s. Naming Pentacles just placebo’s is an insult and definitely do no justice to the spirits and angels involved. They are truly Holy.

On our webshop site there will be an option to support my work in a patronage system. There will be 3 level in a way you can donate to support my work. Not only because I’ll do it but also its an old craft that magi from the past were doing. With my Work I will continue this Work so that it won’t be lost. Beside this its also a way to investigate the workings of those magical objects and one is able to experience that oneself. Many people these days read about it, which is good , but experiencing is a whole other story. The same is true about my Alchemical work. This “patronage’ will give you extra possibilities, like discount, gifts, information etc. So if you not want to buy items from me but you like my work you can be a Patron of ‘Ancient Artifacts Workshop’. more on this later when the webshop is on line.
The ‘eye in the triangle’ with 3 yods. With s ruby in the eye. Made from brass. Comes with a Silver chain.
For the Thelemites,
Ruby is Mars = Horus 😉 3x a yod = 30 + 1 eye in the triangle = 31 = Liber Al: Book of the Law.
Some new work from me and an update. The fifth pantacle of the moon is updated. Its engraved upon 1,5 mm thick .925 silver. The other pentacle is a Mercury pentacle for business. Ruling angel Hamoniel. Made on the day and hour of Mercury. From brass. This one is made for a special person (a brother and friend) as a gift He helps me a lot about all this without asking anything in return.
Also I made and designed a “Star Ruby” pendant. With Swarovski Rubies in it and a Zirconia in the middle.

For those who don’t know. I make Custom made pendants, seals, sigils magical lamens from your own design etc. Examples are visible on this blog but also on our Facebook Page. If you have a design then its possible I can make that for you from all common metals. In the future I will work with precious and semi precious stones as well.
Considering engraving pentacles and sigils/seals and the way I work. For those who are not familiar with the engraving technique. The seals and pentacle I make are engraved with a ‘traditional’ consecrated Burin and that takes a lot of effort in the sense of concentration, stability and strength in the hands. It cuts deep into the metal. One small mistake can ruin the whole seal or pentacle. Most of those mistakes are not repairable some are. All this beside the skill to consecrate them. Actually that already takes place in the process of engraving them. When I do that I’m in some kind of trance state. Its a form of alchemy that is very powerful.

On this page you can see two seals of Lucifer I engraved and made. One is from Brass, the small one and the others is from Copper.
Concerning Lucifer in Dutch.
“Esoteric philosophy admits neither good nor evil per se, as existing independently in nature. The cause for both is found, as regards the Kosmos, in the necessity of contraries or contrasts, and with respect to man, in his human nature, his ignorance and passions. There is no devil or the utterly depraved, as there are no Angels absolutely perfect, though there may be spirits of Light and of Darkness; thus LUCIFER – the spirit of Intellectual Enlightenment and Freedom of Thought – is metaphorically the guiding beacon, which helps man to find his way through the rocks and sandbanks of Life, for Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the “Adversary” in his lowest aspect – both of which are reflected in our Ego.” (Vol. 2, p. 162)

In ‘One star in Sight’, een A.’.A.’. publicatie in klasse B wordt een uiteenzetting gehouden over de structuur van ‘De Grote witte Broederschap’ bekend onder de naam A.’.A.’.. In equinox IV nummer 1 staat een essay van Crowley over ‘occultisme’. Hier kun je het On occultism lezen. Is nog niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands maar dat zal wel komen in de toekomst. Het is duidelijk dat er veel wordt gevraagd van de student in kwestie. De student zal gewapend moeten zijn op alle vlakken. Gissen, fantasie, vaagheden zal de student niet kwalificeren. We hanteren de methode van wetenschappelijk onderzoek om tot verlichtende inzichten te komen. Bekend onder de naam “Wetenschappelijke illuminatie” (“Scientific illuminism”). Tegenwoordig maar ook in het verleden waren en zijn er veel charlatans die zich uitmaken voor ‘leraar’ of voor ‘Adept’ maar het niet zijn. Met name in het ‘New Age’ circuit speelt dit maar ook in sommige magische groepen en organisaties waar ook soms hoge bedragen worden gevraagd voor lessen.
Twijfel zelfs dat u uzelf twijfelt.
Betwijfel zelfs dat u uzelf betwijfelt.
Het lijkt erop dat soms bij twijfel de grootse zekerheid zetelt.
O vernietig het! Vernietig de slang!

Aard van ons Werk.
- Mannen en vrouwen van Aarde, naar U kom ik uit tijden en voorbij tijden, van Ruimte voorbij uw zicht; en ik breng u tot deze woorden.
- Maar zij hoorde het niet, omdat ze niet klaar waren om het te ontvangen.
- Maar bepaalde mensen hoorde het wel en begrepen het. En door hen zal deze kennis bekend gemaakt worden.
- De minste van hen, de dienaar van hen allen, schrijft dit boek.
- Het is geschreven voor hen die klaar zijn, aldus is het bekend wie klaar zijn als zij behept zijn met zekere gaven, klaar zijn bij als het aangeboren is, bij weelde en rijkdom, of bij intelligentie of bij andere uiterlijke kenmerken. En de dienaren van de meester van zijn inzicht zal dit beoordelen.
- Deze Kennis is niet voor iedereen; inderdaad, weinig zijn geroepen en van deze beperkte groep zijn velen gekozen.
- Dit is de aard van het Werk.

Liefde is de wet, liefde krachtens de wil.
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Before one can become a magician he must learn to control his own mind; for mind is the substance with which the magician acts, and the power to control it is the beginning of magic.
– Franz Hartmann-
And thus in his actions a magician can be detected since he/she acts out of a mind that is under control, a disciplined mind. Present, focussed, vigilant, and having the overview. Many people tend to talk/ write about their realizations. Actually that is not necessary, its reflected in what and how one acts. On the fruits thy will know the tree.
On Page 40 from “The Law is for all” (New Falcon publications 1996 edited by Louis Wilkinson and Hymenaeus Beta) Comment on verse 37 chapter I from Liber Al Crowley wrote:
“To the beginner I would like to offer this program:
- Furnish your mind as completely as possible with the knowledge of how to inspect and to control it.
- Train your body to obey your mind, and not to distract its attention.
- Control your mind to devote yourself wholly to discover your True Will.
- Explore the course of that Will till you reach its source, your Silent Self.
- Unite the conscious will with the true Will, and the conscious Ego with the Silent Self. You must utterly ruthless in discarding any atom of consciousness which is hostile or neutral.
- Let this work freely from within, but heed not your environment, lest you make a difference between one thing and another. Whatever it be, it is to be made one with you by Love.”
Love is the law, love under will.
The Great White Brotherhood.
“Persons capable of entering by themselves into communion with the great spiritual brotherhood receive direct teachings and will continue to be directly guided by the spirit of wisdom. Those less gifted by nature and still in need of help and guidance will ﬁnd it in the outer organisations of the Society.
Our community has always existed, ever since the day of creation when God issued this Divine Commandment: ‘Let there be Light.’ It will continue its existence to the end of time. It is the Society of the Children of Light, the society of those who live in Light.
“In our School, we receive the direct guidance of Divine Wisdom, the will of which is free, and its disciples are chosen amongst its devotees.
The mysteries taught to us comprise all that it is possible for men to know about God, about nature, and about man. Without such knowledge, no human being can be wise, and it is in our school that all the wise of the earth have been trained.
Among our members are some who do not dwell in this terrestrial world but belong to other spheres of the Universe. Our disciples are scattered over all parts of the starry worlds. We study but one book: that of nature, which encloses the keys of all secrets. In our study of it, we follow but one method: that of experience. Our meeting place is the Temple of the Holy Ghost – that Holy Ghost which permeates the Universe and which the elect easily discover whilst it remains hidden to the eyes of the profane. Our secrets cannot be bought or sold, but we give them freely to whomsoever is capable of receiving them.
Whenever Invisible Spiritual Beings manifest their will on the outer plane and appear in this world, an association is formed in the beginning between a few enlightened and capable individuals, thus giving birth to a nucleus to which other individuals are attracted. Invariably, in proportion to the association’s increase, disparate elements are attracted to it. These are people who are either incapable of understanding its principles and following them or those whose aim is to place the whole organization in the hands of an unwholesome majority controlled by them.
Thus, in view of the trouble caused by the merely selﬁsh ends of such initiates, the enlightened minority withdraws from the activity, taking back into secrecy its work. The majority, pursuing for some time its ghostly existence, sooner or later dies, for no living form, be it man or society can continue to live after the principle that is its life has vanished.”
“This is the reason why our organisation keeps its secrets and reveals neither its name nor its See to the profane.
This is also why, though it earnestly desires that the teachings be spread among the profane, it renounces public propaganda as a means of multiplying the number of its members. The Initiators and the Initiates remain unknown. If some say that the outer society will gather but few members in this way, it is easy to answer that it has a spiritual head and that those who are worthy to be admitted will be led to it by their intuition. Those who are deprived of the necessary intuition are not ready.
A comparatively small number of capable and enlightened members is always preferable to a multitude of unprepared and indifferent ones.
From the above, it is easy to draw the conclusion that the ﬁrst condition to which the new disciple must submit himself is that of silence on all that concerns the Society; not because it has anything that must not be known to the virtuous or the good, but because it is at one and the same time necessary and prudent that high and sacred things not be exposed to the vulgar to be perverted or profaned by them.
Another condition is required: It is the mutual conﬁdence between initiator and disciple, for a disciple who has no faith in his initiator cannot be taught or guided by him. Such things seem strange in the beginning; but when the disciple has attained a certain grade of evolution, everything becomes clear. The unfoldment which leads to the awakening of the inner senses is slow; but without patience and courage, nothing can be achieved.
The victory of the higher self over the lower in man is a manifestation of the victory of the divine consciousness over the terrestrial and the animal. The object is always the realisation of man’s true nature and the acquisition of conscious immortality.”
“Silence, we say, veils the sanctuary with an impenetrable shield, and only the worthy can ever hope to penetrate it. The word unknown comes from the Latin incognitus. It is this word which is represented by the letter “l”. Many disobeyed this and in the way of things took knowledge and set up on their own.”
