[Rec] Creating Magical Tools: Painting the Tattva Cards and Ritual Consecration


Magical Tools: Painting the Tattvas Ritual
Teacher: Naha Armády
Recorded 2022
Prerequisite: Tattvas and the Radiant Holy Breath Ritual Training

From Tattvas and the Radiant Holy Breath Ritual Training: “The five tattvas are the 5 Sanskrit aspects of reality, represented in color and shape. They correspond to the Cosmic Elements. Painted on cards, the images of the 5 tattvas were employed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in a technique known as scrying in the Spirit vision, practiced by the magicians of the Inner Order. In this way, the tattvas are used as portals to the elemental realms”

In this event, participants create the 5 Tattva cards, painting them and consecrating them for use as magical tools for divination, scrying, altar work, and personal magical use.

In addition to the theurgic nature of the consecration and activation process, , this process is done as an alchemical transmutational working as well, involving tarot divination and supplanting the tattvas upon existing Tarot Keys. The Keys are drawn from decks which are charging on the altars of the school.

Thus this becomes a potent process of self-discovery, intuition and rectification.
