THE LUCKY HOODOO SPIRIT WINDOWS

DAM

Spirit Window of the Eastern Gate (without Sigil)

For sometime now, I have felt indebted, beyond requisite offerings, to the Spirits of Lucky Hoodoo for their continued Presence in my Life and Work. I knew there was a project of some sort which I would set about alongside them, not as “pay back” but as a cooperative labor which would serve the extension of the Hoodoo Empire in Spacetime.

As Sovereign Grand Master of the OTOA-LCN, I have, of course, worked with numerous students of this highly organic system of Spiritism but, as Rev. Michael Bertiaux has, himself, been quick to emphasize, the Path of Lucky Hoodoo is both real and operative outside of any group or magical order which might wish to contain it. OTOA-LCN, therefore, serves as a “Magical Machine” in the field of Hoodoo Research but never holds the “secrets” from those working outside of its Sanctuaries. This simply cannot be done for it is the Spirits Themselves who reveal their Mysteries through Mediumistic Communion.

What CAN be done, however, is active contribution to the growing body of material being created, conjured and conveyed through ongoing magical practice in this arena. Some of our findings must remain private only because they are wholly personal. Others might be fruitfully shared with the larger community in the same fashion that one might contribute to any journal of research. There are opportunities for exciting exchange in the “marketplace” with an eye toward enhancing our own ontological experience.

LEGBHA-LUAGE (without Sigil)

Initially, I had anticipated some sort of written endeavor, branching off from the Introductory material given by Rev. Bertiaux at the opening of his magnificent Voudon-Gnostic Workbook. This was never envisioned as any sort of “improvement” on the work of the Master but rather an elaboration in which I could give expression to my own individual exploration and extensions of Hoodoo Working in an esoteric vein.

From this desire (and also to address some particular problems expressed to me by students of the LH Grimoire), I began penning the “Becoming Hoodoo” series with the intent of examining the not always apparent connections between the raw and amoral sorcery of elemental Hoodoo magic and the high ideals of Seven Ray Monastery Gnosticism.

These essays were produced piecemeal and anthologized via a number of small occult publications. As I was asked about these by many who were unable to purchase the books in which they appeared, I have put up most of the written material here on my blog that they might be enjoyed by all.

After arriving in British Columbia this past autumn, it became clear that there was further work to do along these lines and it would be during travel over the waters of Kootenay Bay that the Hoodoo rose up to delineate the next phase of this work.
It began simply enough with a series of drawings intended to be used on my own altarspace. From this bout of sketching, directions came in as to how this simple series of images could unfold into an ongoing work of use to others who were, likewise, connecting with the Spirits in their own homes and lives. From this impress I have designed, painted and assembled the LUCKY HOODOO SPIRIT WINDOWS which are meant to be actively used in conjunction with the LH Altarspace of the VGW.

The four Spirit Windows may certainly be enjoyed on their own merit as art pieces, although the intent behind them is for active use in esoteric work. In writing up a commentary on the use of these images, I found that I had returned to the “Becoming Hoodoo” project with a stand-alone entry in which I could continue sharing from my personal vision of the Hoodooverse. I moved rapidly from a pamphlet to a paper and the result is the small volume entitled SPIRIT WINDOWS.
In writing this first of a new series of booklets in the Voudon-Gnostic tradition, I’ve continued to take the approach which has developed in the Becoming Hoodoo papers, blending information, personal anecdote and vision. These booklets will also contain commentary by Michael Bertiaux selected, respectfully and with blessing, from many private communications over the years.

TIKI TIME!

TIKI2

The “Tiki Cultus” is very Adamic in Nature. Tiki was the first Man and his adventures, as such, follow closely after the mishaps attending the Clay Creation of the Book of Genesis. However, unlike the well-known Adam, Tiki has become an emblem of Protection, a Guardian Spirit at various important Gateways and Thresholds. His ferocity contains the bite and bitterness of the human “set-up” via creation: a Being thrown into the World of Spacetime with its enticements and suffering. On the flip side, Tiki carries the Wisdom and Power rippling at the Dawn of Consciousness, a direct connection to the Divine Influx back of the Human Game. He is, therefore, well suited to serve as Protector of Sacred Sites and Forbidden Places.

TIKI1

To encounter Tiki is to come face to face with the Essence of own’s Core Self. We are reminded of Indiana Jones, who understood that “The Penitent Man is humble before God.” We do not impose our seemingly sophisticated selfhood onto Tiki. We recognize Tiki within ourselves and, thereby, pass the Gate.
