Dreams / Tips for learning to have lucid dreams
« on: July 17, 2014, 01:26:12 AM »
Hey everyone,

I would really like to learn to have regular lucid dreams. At the moment I have very few lucid dreams at random times that only lasts for about 10-20 seconds.
It is really cool when I get the 1 lucid dream out of 1000 dreams, however it is extremely frustrating when I get the 999 regular dreams out of 1000 dreams.

Does anyone have any tips to help me develop more regular lucid dreams? (or) Does anyone have some sort of progression to develop lucid dreaming success every time (or at least more success than I currently have)?

Any answer would be appreciated.

Magick / An inquriy regarding a particular book on Alchemy
« on: July 15, 2014, 07:37:57 PM »
This article is directed to those who have read the book "Covenant of Silence" by Nicholas D. Collette.

Of all my books on alchemy (I have 4 books include the one mentioned above) this book in particular is the most questionable. This particular book has exercises in alchemy which are very different from the exercises provided in my other 3 books on alchemy (two of which are written by the same author).

I was wondering if anyone has done any of the experiments in "Covenant of Silence" or at least read the exercises?

Nicholas died recently and the cause of death was determined to be overdose I believe, however his death has a lot of controversy on his website and a few others. I read through his book and it is unprofessionally written, however he processes in the book are extremely precise and straight-forward.

The exercises mainly involves creating the elixirs with morning dew and even the philosopher's stone using morning dew or blood. He had a website that he was really popular on, however some of his workings involve using Mercury (the actual element mercury and not the mercury as the aspect of spirit) and using blood. It is all really sketchy and in some cases just dangerous.

Of course with proper safety measures it can become safe, but I do not want to be in physical contact with something that could give me mercury poison! Like his method of creating "The True Hermetic Seal" which is supposed to be able to seal a retort and create stones that are harder than diamond.

One day when I have the correct set-up and safety equipment I would like to at least attempt his experiments. However I would really like to hear anybody who is familiar with alchemy because the ways that Nicholas does alchemy is extremely different that the one that I am familiar too (The one I am familiar to is based on the teachings of two of Dr. Albert Reidel's students and other hermetic sources).

Questions & Suggestions / I am new here and I have questions
« on: July 15, 2014, 03:22:09 PM »
Okay, so I am new here so I do not know much about how this forum works yet. I have a few of questions.


1. Is there a way to see all articles (and only articles, I do not want their comments to also be search results) posted by a particular user.

2. Where would I post an alchemy related question (technically it is a alchemy book related question)? Would it go under the Magick category?

3. How can I edit my profile? I can not add pictures or an signature like the other users can. Do I have to wait a certain period of time or something of the sort.

4. I am trying to figure out the format of this forum; it looks like it is HTML. Am I able to use HTML to code my posts?

5. Is there a way to receive emails when a post I made has a reply/message?



I would appreciate any and all answers.

Hello and Goodbye / Hello Everyone
« on: July 14, 2014, 06:57:51 PM »
Hello, my name is Timothy and I am from Florida. I am 18 years old who has been fascinated with metaphysics for many years. My favorite subject of metaphysics is Alchemy, which I have been interested in for about 5 years by now, and lately Hermetic Elemental Magick.

I have almost no skills in any metaphysical arts anymore; the best I can do now is simple manifestations.

Over the past months, I have become interested in elemental magick which eventually led me to here and the articles made by the user "Prophecy." I have been kinda just floating around on this site for a couple of weeks reading Prophecy's articles mainly and finally decided to make an account (Social Anxiety had postponed me to do so) and I want to begin down the path of Hermeticism because it is the one that seems to fit best with me and my interests/beliefs.

I want to pursue the path of alchemy the most, however due to the fact that the 4 books I have on the subject all entail the use of alcohol in the distillation process, I can not really begin actually working in alchemy until three years from now when I am of legal drinking age and can purchase alcohol.

I used to belong to the site known as MyTK, but over the years I outgrew that site because I feel that it was lacking the seriousness that I wanted, so I left that site after being there for about 3 years. (I kinda miss it, it was falling apart when I left it and it was finally destroyed by the most recent admin a year or two ago.)

... I think that is about it. I am pretty shy, but I would really like to connect with this community.
