Many of you know by now, I’m not very good at settling for normalcy. I always want to push the limit of what I already have; evolve, think outside the box… I have this mindset as well with the mystic arts.
One of the ideas I’ve been tinkering around in my head was connecting with Bardon. I’ve been playing around with this idea for awhile; I was inspired by a fellow forum member, my own inquisitive nature, and the principles and ideas of Chaos Magick.
I mean why not, we connect w/ gods, deities, entities, ancestors and what not – why couldn’t this be a viable approach to his system?
So a couple of nights ago, I decided to have a go at it.
It was a very freestyle approach, I basically asked that I be heard by Bardon and that he bless my endeavor. I performed my normal rituals and spoke my request. Initially, I made sure I feel a “connection” and then proceed to go into a zone where I am more open to messages from beyond. Then I waited and meditated.
Soon after, I received “visions” of a desert, a dry afternoon desert.
To explain this in a movie like terms, the scene is like any western movie where they do a sweeping motion of the landscape. Then the scene shifted focusing on the desert skies toward space where I lingered for a bit. If you’ve ever seen the desert night sky, you know what I am talking about – so clear.
The scene shifted again to me leaving a desert mountain like structures, heading for the open desert, and then towards the sun where I lingered the most. The scene with the sun was the most intense as it was blinding me and I could feel the desert sun on me.
I eventually disconnected when I received nothing new.
If I interpret that, I see the vision of desert as symbolically my journey towards initiation. Many a story, especially of shamanistic nature, where a journey to initiation begins and ends in the desert-like setting. I don’t think I need to explain the symbolism behind this.
Space for me, is the universe, everything, above and below, the akasha.
Then the scene of the desert to the sun, for me, symbolizes reaching the end and the beginning of some sort of Solar initiation.
Now that I think about it, plenty of ways to interpret this. The key parts were my feelings during the vision, I did not feel any negativity. It was all very positive energies so I think it is safe to deduce that I did receive his blessings.
