The theories of sexual magic can be summarized:
(1) Man possesses hidden powers (often identified with the
subconscious mind) which give him greater perception, raise him
to states of ecstasy, expand his consciousness, stimulate
increased physical, emotional and mental powers;
(2) These powers lie 'buried' beneath some 'barrier' which
conscious control cannot penetrate, but which can be overcome by
a variety of techniques, including to some extent drugs and
(3) This 'barrier' can be penetrated through heightening the
physical, emotional and intellectual focus of the body by sexual
stimulation', leading to a 'break through' at the point of
orgasm, at which energy is released.
Techniques employed are heterosexual, homosexual or autosexual.
In the case of autosexual techniques, the aim was usually to
heighten the consciousness of the magician and focus and
stimulate his magical power, culminating in the release of
energy at the point of orgasm. The English artist and magician
Austin Spare employed a technique of 'magical masturbation' as a
means of concentrating, releasing and directing magical energy.
Aleister Crowley also employed magical sexual techniques - of
every imaginable variety - in his occult work, and in the Ordo
Templi Orientis, of which he was a member, 'magical
masturbation' was taught as the technique of one of the higher
Keith: I mentioned that much of the research into the rituals of ancient
Egypt suggested the ritual re-enactment of the beginning of the manifested
universe when the Sun-Energy Principle manifested as a physical being and was
without a bride, but masturbated the universe into a curd like "starry"
existence and then the other gods were manifested out of this.
The priests at Karnak re-enacted this ritual. It seems to be less repulsive
than ritual cannabilism of the Mayans, Aztecs etc. so let's not be too
judgemental. After all drinking the blood of Jesus Christ is pretty much
vampirism no matter how you look at it.
There is no doubt that power energies are manifested in sexual acts.
Supposedly the incarnating soul searches for his new mother and father while
they are in flagrante delicto (or whatever the Latin is). Feeling trishna and
tanha the new/old saw is drawn back into meaty incarnation because of the
ecstasies of his parents.
I have found that all this is well and good, but like anything there is hell
to pay for excessive, selfish and unjust use of these energies. The jails,
not the temples are full of gang members who are drug and sex addicts and
become slaves to beings that use them. The brothers of the shadow are a lot
easier to reach than the Masters of purity, wouldn't you say?
