    Thank you for posting this article, I would like to learn more about this from all stand points, mystical, scientific and any other way thank you. For example, how to safely summon a guide when you have never done it.

    1. To ‘safely’ summon a guide you only need to request a guide appear. I don’t advocate all the banishing and testing of guides. Often you will be advised to perform banishing rituals (such as the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram) and then test a guide with various God names (the most ‘powerful’ names and words) that you know, with the idea being that a ‘bad’ guide will either depart or reveal themselves to be ‘bad’ if you do these things. However, if from the beginning you accept that you are in control of the situation, and using it as a learning experience (to learn whatever it is that you need to learn), then you will discover that it is unnecessary to be so clinical and antiseptic. If in doubt, learn to work with your Higher Self first, and then work with your Higher Self as guide and you cannot go ‘wrong’.

    When exercising the tattvas, is it neccessary to know the fundamentals of ceremonial? Can one use tattva-cards solely for meditational purposes and not be engage in ceremonial and magickal periphanelia?? Also are their any preliminaries before entering into the Akasa tattva (spirit)?

    thanks!!!

    1. Yes, it is possible to use the tattva cards for meditational purposes only. You do not need to practice any kind of ceremonial magic or use any magical paraphernalia. The exercise I offer on this website is devoid of specific requirements as proposed by the Golden Dawn adherents. As such, it can be adapted to your own practices and beliefs. The tattva symbols, as very simple representations of the magical elements, provide an easy way to practice a meditation or ‘astral scrying’. The basic technique can be used for any symbol, including Tarot cards.

    I have been using these a lot. I like their simplicity. When I teach this to a group of people who may be put off by archangels or excessive paraphernalia I lead the group in finding an appropriate “guide” or astral version of the self.

    Hello

    I have a simple question, every time in meditation i see a circle which is black, around it has different colors. I sit there and observe this circle and it gets bigger and bigger until everything becomes pitch black. I’ve been having this Experience for a while now, i really don’t know what to do? Is this a Aska Tattva? please advice, I would really want to surpass this stage and get in touch with my Guru. But i really have no guidance :)
