Feast of Ullr / Feast of the hunters, November 27th

Feast of Ullr / Feast of the hunters, November 27th

The name Ullr occurred in paganism. Ullr was a great warrior, hunter and he was known as the God of the bow or the great God of hunters. The Feast of Ullr (the Feast of the hunters) was celebrated on November 27th. The main aim of the ritual, which should take place before the feast, is to seek blessings for any weapons which are used for hunting. Then the weapons should be more successful during the winter hunting season. This kind of the ritual is also used to ask for succes and luck for your tribe and your personal lives. The celebration which should held then should reflect the wild hunt. On the celebratory table should be placed meal prepared from wild animals (duck, deer, pheasant, etc.) with other foods which you can find in forests (edible mushrooms, various edible berries). For drinking is suitable to prepare delicious wine, beer, mead or herb tea. There should be prepared a plate and a cup for Ullr on the table as well. This feast is an important act that honors the pagan deity.

Volturnalia

Volturnalia

Volturnalia was the roman festival, which was celebrated on August 27th every year. This festival was dedicated to Volturnus, who was a Roman god of water, rivers and fountains. His name was apparently derived from a local Samnite cult. The Volturno river in the area Campania, in southern Italy, was named in his honour. The God Volturnus was honored with feasting, drinking of wine and playing standard roman games. The first floating wind turbine in North America was named after him.

Moonstone

Moonstone

This menhir was erected by Celtic culture two thousand years ago. Its specialty is a monthly face on the top. It was the custom at the time of full moon to come to the menhir and ask it for answers. People put small gifts down around the menhir. Usually fruit, bread, candles, straw toys. Such a relationship to a stone may seem weird to us today. Worship and trust in its advice? Everyone is going to laugh at us. In particular people who sit in front of TV daily and completely devour information from anonymous sources. They never ask why is this information presented to them, who in the background is interested to communicate this information and what is the purpose? They don’t ask, but yet they despise others who can lay questions. Their life is false. It is about the information of others to which they do not really understand. I don’t know about you, but I prefer to sit down in the evening in the full moon by the Moonstone and listen to its stories!

The Secret of Life

 post The Secret of Life, The Grand Mystical Lodge

All over the world we can find mysterious stone menhirs, statues and pillars. They appear in traditions and stories which speak about them as living things. The Jewish Rabbis knew the secret of how to revive a stone to serve them, of which there is quite a lot of evidence. The Jewish tradition has maintained in the Gemara book warning against “Jadaa” a plant which wandered through a desert, by its size and shape it resembled a human and was very dangerous. Kabbalah describes these “creatures” as living creatures through “Ruach haadama” – Breath of the Ground. While a human lives thanks to the Breath of God. Even pagan traditions speak about trees, old stumps or stone menhirs as if they were something alive, something that is worthy of respect and understanding. Nowadays it may look weird because for us they are just cold stones that emit a special energy. Science examined one of the great menhirs in our region in Europe and found out that at the time of the solstice the magnetic field around this stone is changing. But it lacks the magic – the connection with the power from elsewhere, the present manifest of the God! The world which was here and which will be here again, will be full of magic, full of strange creatures and gods. It will certainly be very interesting. The question is, where will human beings belong in all of this? What will happen to humans?

Giant Castle

Giant Castle, The Grand Mystical Lodge

They call it the Giant castle. An ancient fortification on the top of a hill high about a kilometre above the sea level. According to science this castle was built by the Celts. Interestingly, science wasn’t able to find out a single shred of evidence of any settlement there. Therefore, the scientists developed a hypothesis that it was just a place of ritual. The thing is the Celts didn’t build such places, never mind building them on a top of a hill and all the hard work by fortifying them with h stone walls. People who know the Celtic‘s attitudes towards god worshipping, also had to have a big laugh about the scientific hypothesis. What should science do when legends say that the Giant castle is occupied by giants who throw stones down the hill? And what is worse – stones actually really do fall down from the hills. Big hundred-kilo boulders fall in a large amounts. According to the scientists it is the tourists causing the stones fall. Science can be sometimes really funny, but what they completely overlooked, as if it didn’t exist, are the small stone trolls which appear throughout the place. One decade ago there were none – I went through this place several times myself. Today, there are dozens of them. As if something has been slowly but surely coming to us…

Madame Helga Lowski

Madame Helga Lowski

The icon of spiritualism about which there is almost nothing written anywhere. Helga Lowski was born into an old Jewish family in Krakow, Poland. The exact date of her birth is unknown, but when she was twenty years old she escaped the mass deportation of Jews to the concentration camps. With a group of friends she went to Paris where she soon begins to practice, at that time very popular, spiritualism. Since childhood she felt strange supernatural motives in her heart. Among Jews it is strictly prohibited to develop in any mysticism way. It is very guarded especially among women. And Helga was well aware why. A woman can communicate very intuitively and in-depth with the spiritual world. With the world behind the veil of matter. Helga was famous for her beauty, but because of that she was moved to the edge in the community of spiritualism and lost the majority of spiritualists colleagues. In those times the domain of oracle salons was that the staff looked like unwashed ghosts. Manicured ladies were only in cabarets as an accompaniment of various magicians with tricks. But her “handicap” brought Helga to that time elite and therefore also to the scholars and intellectuals.

Very early she met several influential occultists and participated eagerly in fight against Hitler. In the fight on a spiritual level. Many of Europe guilds became known for such attacks and when we observe the strange behaviour of the Nazi leader and his fatal mistakes, this fight was apparently very successful. But Hitler was quite well aware of this and his special SS troops searched around the world and tried to eliminate the occult scholars. Among some of them there is evidence that they ended up in concentration camps, or even worse, did not survive Gestapo interrogations. We do not know the eventual fate of Helga Lowski. In the last record of one of her colleagues, a tremendous enthusiasm of her abilities is described. Literally, it says that the world has never had a better medium than Helga. Only she was able to communicate with the ancient Devas, to which others could never get through the fog of wailing souls. Here, however, the trail of Helga Lowski ends. The strange silence surrounding her is somewhat scary. Did she get lost within something immemorial? Did she go mad like so many others who in deep hypnosis found some strange place without time and the laws of matter? Or was she caught by the Gestapo in the dark streets of Paris and just vanished forever? Emptiness instead of a young and beautiful Helga is just full of unanswered questions …

The Grandmaster Frantisek Kabelak

Frantisek Kabelak - The Grand Mystical Lodge Frantisek Kabelak - The Grand Mystical Lodge

Frantisek Kabelak (*1902 +1969)

One of the most outstanding personalities of the world’s esoteric scene. Kabelak could be specified as a maverick who was so hungry for knowledge that he sacrificed most of his time, often also his personal life to it.

Kabelak was born in a Czech family in Vienna, where he studied and also began his interest in esoteric science. During his studies he was already a member of the Magikon study circle. After graduation, similarly to other major esoterics, he was travelling around the world. He visited among others Africa, Asia and Southeast Europe. The purpose of this travelling was looking for esoteric culture which in many cases he managed to find. As he writes himself, in Palestine he was influenced by meeting with the Master of Kabbalah so much that for the rest of his life Kabbalah was the main focus of his study. However, despite that, Kabelak was very familiar with other esoteric disciplines such as practical magic, ceremonial magic, magic mirrors, psychometry, spagyrics, cabbalistic theurgy, clairvoyant magic and alchemy. At the same time he knew several foreign languages – English, Hebrew, Arabic, German, Polish, French, Coptic, Latin, and there are a few other cultures and languages in which he was interested – in some of his remarks there are words of the Tibetan and Indian languages, or also notes in Russian. As we can see, Kabelak really had an almost encyclopaedic knowledge and his range of knowledge was extraordinary.

After returning from his trips, Kabelak moved to Prague (1936). Here he very soon became a member of Universalie and due to his knowledge he was almost immediately involved in lecturing. He initiates the creation of a spagyric and alchemical laboratory. He also used it, because he was very interested in the manifestation of ideas in nature and he himself practiced Hermetic medicine, about which he wrote a comprehensive work entitled Herbarium spirituale siderium. Besides this work, Kabelak was very active in writing and during his membership in Universalie he published many works in the bottom edition of Eulis, and he also regularly contributed to the Logos membership magazine. He translated Faust’s Magic innaturalis which had apparently greatly influenced him during the course of his study in Vienna, as well as Magic Nigrae which he added with his own comments. He continued this way until the beginning of the war, when the activities of Universalie were forbidden.

Outside the already mentioned specializations, Kabelak was also actively interested in secret societies, especially Rosicrucians of which he had an extensive library. However, his wife sold it when he was travelling for a long time – although he was very upset about it, he began to build a new library. After the arrival of the Nazis in Prague it was destroyed by the Gestapo.

Kabelak’s activity during the Second World War has not been evidenced. Some sources mention that he was forced to work in a quarry. Unlike many of his colleagues he managed to survive the war.

After the war Kabelak closed into privacy, he moved away from Prague and studied alone. Later, during communism, when all the esoteric activities were prohibited, he moved to Becov. There at the edge of a forest he had a cottage, where he continued in individual studies and experiments. During this period he stayed in touch with a few friends from the esoteric community, he completely withdraw from the public scene. In this period Kabelak was diligently working on his manuscripts – Kabelak wrote many works, unfortunately, far from all survived. Many of the manuscripts were in a hold of Kabelak’s close friend, who unfortunately was later arrested by the secret police and his entire library, including Kabelak’s manuscripts was taken and destroyed. His sister managed to salvage something, but many valuable works were lost. The surviving works include 18 of his own works and translations.

He came back to the “public” scene in the 1960’s, when in Prague he secretly taught a small group of people. He created a whole cycle of educational lectures, from which, however, due to the totalitarianism, there was nothing left.

In his mid-70’s Kabelak was already seriously ill. He wanted to write an immense work, which would be a complete synthesis of his extensive knowledge and understanding. Eventually, he was able to realize only a third of his intentions … in September 1969 he died over half-written manuscripts – he was working right until the very end!

We believe that Frantisek Kabelak was Illuminati by heart and soul. He believed in another world – a world where the truth would be established, and the possibilities of spiritual knowledge would be limitless.

Frantisek Kabelak who has many successors, would be satisfied in today’s world of possibilities. We all live in their dreams. In dreams, in which they hoped and for which they fought for until their last breath.

We believe that you are following the way of our knowledge.

Thank you!

Abnoba’s tears

Abnoba's tears

The ancient Celtic goddess Abnoba was the patron of fertility in a wider sense. However, only few know that one of her characteristics was a secret and carefully hidden jealousy. Today, we could ask why hide such a natural thing, but it is necessary to understand that we are talking about a characteristic, which was unnaturally imposed by Christianity. In the ancient period of the Celts the world was flowing with laws of nature and the fulfillment of female biological needs which was in first place in the life tasks of women. So it is not surprising that Abnoba knew quite well that something was wrong with her and because she was afraid that her strange disease could be passed to the Celt women who loved her as a goddess of fertility, she made a little magic with incalculable consequences. She divided her jealousy into small stone pearls and then she buried them deep in the woods in a very large area. Something very strange happened. The ground didn´t accept her pearls and mournful tears welled up in the places where she had hidden them. Today they are known as Abnoba’s tears. Springs that have great magical power. However, it was a slightly different power than the goddess had wished. It is said, that if you drink from that source it binds your heart with a magical power and you will never forget about it. Every time you remember you will feel a jealous stabbing pain in your heart.
