Most of you might notice that the book’s title is in spanish, so the book is in spanish.
If you did then you are correct :P
No worries I will translate! Book says Witches, Werewolves and Vampires! By Renzo Vitallini.
This book talks on many things of those three, and I’ll just give my comments, critiques and thoughts on the content that I will translate.
This part that I will go in depth talks on a man called “Juan el Rojo” Or Juan the Red.
This took place around 1314, where he was in court and they were deciding to burn him alive
(which they did, but be aware that he used the arts for killing or he supposedly did, but people were killed just for telling fortune by pouring hot candle wax into water...).
Juan declared to the jury and judges that he killed people with wax figurines and that he was an assassin.
How did he do this?
“He claimed it was virgin wax which he collected by stealing from temples and churches that according to him he was protected by the gods of bad.
On a night of Tuesday or Saturday with no moon in a place far from town where he waited till midnight and invoked infernal potencies/forces while he molded the figurine while concentrating mentally on the person that had to die, later he added hairs of that person, pieces of their finger or toe nails and etc of his target. After that he dressed the figurine in unwashed fragments of the target’s clothes.
Then he waited till the next Tuesday or Saturday so he could move the figurine to a sacred place and baptized with a few drops of holy water imposing the name of his target.
Afterwards he gives the figurine to the customer that paid for the curse and instructs them to slowly introduce it into fire when ever they wanted to while invoking Satan and concentrating mentally on the death of that enemy.”
#1: When it mentions him stealing wax from candles in holy places, I believe it makes sense, due to the theory of emotional imprints in objects, so if you follow that theory then those candles would have some very potent energy. Not saying he knew of this theory, but looking at it from a modern view with the understanding of theories, it makes sense.
This was more likely in my opinion a mental blockage; he believed that his practice that he called dark arts. (Which in reality isn’t real, there is no such thing as bad or good magick, just how you use it. Example being a hammer, you could use it to build things or you can utilize it as a weapon, magick is but a tool. That is why a few religions condemn it, magick or any metaphysical art puts power in the hands of the people.)
#2: Not fully sure why he chose such days (Moonless Tuesday or Saturday), will look it up soon and see if I can find any connections from multiple sources.
Midnight is considered a witching hour, just as much as Three A.M.
In his invoking of infernal potencies I am assuming he Invoked those forces as he charged the figurine with its specific energy, effectively utilizing its preexisting energies that I mentioned in note #1, also the energies won’t react to each other unless you believe their being polar opposites will make them react, remember, your mind is your best friend, but in ignorance your worst enemy (Not sure if I subconsciously remembered hearing that or I just thought it up :P, make what you will of it.)
#3: He focused on the person he was targeting so he could put their signature within the figurine so it makes a connection with them and making the curse/spell stronger, plus his intention of the purpose of the figurine.
#4: The hairs and other physical products of his target were added to make more anchors and connections of the person, plus those items, naturally have the energies of those that are around them most (being the person that made or wore them).
#5: Lol, still not sure on the importance of Tuesday or Saturday.
#6: Baptizing and imposing the name is just finishing the curse of this figurine.
#7: The last part is of the client invoking Satan and focusing on the death of the client’s enemy. Many magickians use godforms/entities/forces to power their spells.
You could just as easily invoke Satan to heal children with cancer with no after affects as you could invoke Buddha and Jesus to give cancer to others… would be hard since you would have to get past the passive nature of the godform, but it is possible in theory.
But you don’t use a hammer to paint, nor do you use a brush to hit nails, obviously you can, but they would be much more affective if you use them for their passive nature that you know in your understanding. Example being if you believe and read on Satan being good and not believing what you see on TV and movies then you could invoke him to heal with no repercussions. It really depends on your belief.
Me personally, I worship nothing nor think anything could force me to do something I truly wish not to do. But when it comes to the beliefs of others I would die for their right to have them, even if I disagree with them.
My belief system or paradigm is built on concepts from many religions that I found handy and liked them.
Be who you wish to be, if you want to believe in something then do it. Just remember that belief is a personal matter and there's not too much reason to put it the faces of others. If it is your blog or they ask you then fucking hard core :) go all out, but imposing it on others or imposing your lack of it isn’t helping anyone.
