1714-1 One naturally adapted to self and to associates as regarding
the reading, understanding, of mystic and magic influence.
1714-1 In the field of the understanding of the magic or mysterious
forces, especially as applied to the influences over peoples,
and in the APPLICATION of same - whether as to song, music,
or of precious stones - even these that have to do with the
odors - may the entity gain, conquer self, and develop
through these experiences; keeping in that way in which the
criterion for the development is made as the ideal; holding
that, the entity may reach to that position as to WHATEVER
is desired, so long as the DESIRE is in accord with that
universal force or development, called - God. Ready for
19. (Q) What should the entity study to develop mysticism?
(A) The effect of odor, color, harmony, upon individuals.
Individuals study and personal application greater than
books, though the books of the mystics may be read - but
DEVELOP same in PERSONAL experience AND application.
21. (Q) Should the entity study and write poetry?
(A) That the natural consequence of harmony, as related
to any of the phases of mystic influences - for poetry is
only the mystic influence of the mental forces of a body.
That's POETRY, really, in individuals. The mystic influence
had upon the mental forces of a mental body. We are through
for the present.
When there is held by self an ideal, or
that as is a guiding star for the continuity of life, hope,
peace and happiness, these may not touch a body. One
allowing self to harken TO the voices of those that partake
of those ELEMENTAL forces may be directed by that that may be
called black magic, or that of OVERPOWERING in the mental
2143-1 17. (Q) Did changing my name have anything to do with my life?
(A) Change in the name changed the vibrations in many
directions, and is HELPFUL in the present experience - will
these be guided as the directions or indications have been
2630-1 45. (Q) Since I am definitely drawn to occult things, how can I
free myself from the fear instilled by an early horoscope
which stated that in turning to anything psychic I might open
myself to the influences of black magic?
(A) No better formula may be given than this: Read
Deuteronomy 30th, as being directed to thee BY those
influences ye helped establish among a great peoples.
Then study and analyze John 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th. Not
as rote, again, but as a PRACTICAL experience, as may be the
experience of any soul that seeks to make that creative
force, God, as manifested there, the rule of the life.
No greater psychic lived than Jesus of Nazareth. No greater
activity was manifested than by the entity itself in that
directing of the household of its own sons; two of which
practised black magic and were destroyed. These build that
fear. In Him it is eradicated.
Let that be thy watchword which begins one of those portions
intended for thy instruction, ever - "Let not thy heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid."
137-3 4. (Q) In a previous reading, you told this body that he
himself was a psychic. You will tell him how he will develop
this psychic ability.
(A) As has been given, we have in the material world the
two known and accepted conditions. The body and the material
world. The projection from the body or from a material world
is of that unknown element called psychic. See?
We have those forces in the mental, or soul forces that with
the spirit inside of entity shall manifest itself, that the
phenomena or psychic forces become perceptible to the
individual entity. The training, the knowledge, the
understanding of such forces may be developed in this body
through certain lines that are as sure conditions. As given,
in this manner and form, may same be developed, giving a
certain given period to concentrate his body physically,
mentally, entering the silence. Come apart from the outside
world, the thoughts, perceptions of the outside forces, alone
entering into the silence for 15 to 20 minutes each day at
Giving the body the time, the spirit forces of such entity
aside, and then enter into the magic silence and instantly
force those projections from the manifested forces of the
world, of material, of psychic, those conditions that will
make to the individual the understanding, the knowledge of
the psychic forces as are in the world, and that may be made
manifested in this individual entity . For with each
137-3 Page 2
entering in through concentrations, with awakening of that
entity forces quick arising conditions that arise through
such a condition as has manifested through psychic forces.
The use of such forces in a material world is the greater
gift of any entity. This body would understand from this
conception the perception of such knowledge and the use of
In this manner may the body fully understand such conditions.
Well that these be guided by that injunction as will be found
in the last verse of Deuteronomy 29, and the whole chapter of
5. (Q) Where shall this body take this solitude, when
(A) Any place the body may choose, being alone, and in the
same place each day.
6. (Q) Is any such hour suggested for this concentration?
(A) No, any hour, only using the same hour each day,
entering with the supplication to the Giver of all good and
7. (Q) How can this body learn to concentrate as suggested?
(A) This is the special gift of this entity. Through the
supplications set aside the cares, the thoughts, of the
outside world and study those conditions that mind enters at
such concentrations, at times and certain times that come
through the mental forces of the body.
8. (Q) After this has been developed, how can the psychic
power of this body be used?
(A) In developing same in the lives of others, not to become
as one that would be evil-spoken of, but that that gives the
other living possession of the holy one within the lives of
each and every individual that will awaken to the indwelling
of Him who gives life to all.
9. (Q) Is it pre-ordained that this body should have the use
of this power?
(A) Pre-ordained in that entity, as gained through this
mode and manner of conducting this will, with that of the
Divine Spirit as is given in injunction "My spirit beareth
witness with your spirit, whether ye be the sons of God or
not." In this entity this has been kept, and the body keeps
the living way within itself and presents the body, soul and
spirit, holy and acceptable unto Him, which is a reasonable
10. (Q) How long will it be necessary for the body to go into
these solitudes before this body will have the use of a
(A) Twenty to thirty days.
137-3 Page 3
11. (Q) After these periods of concentration, what should be
done to develop the body's psychic power?
(A) For those particular injunctions that come to the
individual self in such moments, same may be used in the
material and in the psychic way, so long as it is done in an
12. (Q) Should this body read any literature on the subject of
the psychic? If so, what literature?
(A) Those as indicated we find the best study of psychic
13. (Q) How can this body study himself?
(A) Study this injunction as given in the manner and way
14. (Q) Will the development of this psychic force imprison
this body as far as he personally is concerned?
(A) It improves the body materially, mentally, physically,
spiritually and financially.
15. (Q) Would you suggest anything further to this body?
(A) We are through for the present.
1724-4 35. The entity then became much acquainted with the influence in
the Alexandrian land, and there we find the activities or
interests were in the unusual, the mysteries, those things
which delved into the abilities of individuals to use the
unseen forces; or to work in what would be called by some
MAGIC, by others those influences in which the elementals
were used for activities upon the higher tension of the
mental forces of individuals.
1724-4 36. Again we find the entity slipped into those things in which
self-indulgence and self-aggrandizement brought disappointing
forces to the entity. And the entity was raised only by its
associations with those in authority to the better activities
during the experience.
37. The abilities then as a writer, the abilities as a musician,
the abilities as a delver into the mysterious forces, arise
in the present experience INNATELY and manifestedly according
to the harkening within from those experiences through the
Roman, the Palestine and the Alexandrian lands; in the name
then of Zebuden.
2386-1 30. The name then was Tep-Lepan. The entity gained, the entity
lost; gained during the periods of deeper thought and
meditation, lost in the period of grudges, the period of
attempt to apply necromancy as related to the magic, or the
2386-1 Page 5
reasonings. Magicians then were not merely sleight of hand
performers, or prestidigitators, or those who worked
mysteries, but rather they were - as would be termed today -
the lawyers, or the students of laws of EVERY nature
pertaining to the ruling and directing of the subjects of a
kingdom or of a household.
"There IS a law, if I could but know!"
33. Again that counsel, that admonition, - know that the answer
is ever within self. For, He - the ruler - He, the love -
He, the God of the universal forces - will not leave thy
questions unanswered, if ye seek to know same in and through
Him; and the answer will find materialization in mind and
THEN in materiality in self.
2386-1 34. Study then to show thyself approved unto that ideal ye
choose; knowing there is the necessity of combining,
coordinating, cooperating with the universal forces and
2835-1 20. Before that the entity was in the French land, during those
periods when there were disturbances and wars not only with
the Huns but with those peoples of the Norse land.
21. In that period the entity found the needs for relying upon
the cunningness of its ability to work magic, as it were; to
use all the wiles of every nature to have and hold its place
or position among those in such times. Yet the entity then,
in the name Madame Queluman, was equal to the occasion.
22. Thus those experiences as may be found in the abilities of
the entity to judge individuals, to know the way of their
thinking, or what they think; the abilities as one who
is sensitive to the activities of others, those who are
interested in all forms of occult or mystic powers, the
influence of charm, the influence of rote. All of these
become a part of the innate or manifested experience of
23. And while much of this the entity has held in abeyance in
its material activity, it finds expression in the entity's
deeper mental self. And yet, as indicated, the needs in such
experiences that the real spiritual values of an ideal be
34. As to the abilities of the entity in the present, that to
which it may attain, and how:
36. Then study to show thyself approved unto the same, keeping
self unspotted from condemnation; knowing in Whom ye have
believed, as well as in what ye believe.
3285-2 16. The entity was among those who by its own wits, as would be
called, today (being left by others and by its companion),
made what would be called now sorceries or divinations, using
charm and magic as a means to attain those desires and
17. Hence in the present all things pertaining to charm, sacred
formulas, societies, initiations, the ritual of varied groups
are of interest to the entity, not matter whether these are
in the darkest minds of men or in the higher ritualistic
18. These abilities were not used for other than material things.
Thus, while they have the material hold, they must be watched
and guarded against becoming the thing ye worship, rather
than the spiritual. Hence the warning that has been
indicated to the entity. It is the spirit with which ye do a
thing, the purpose that brings weal or woe in its effect in
21. The entity then was an apothecary, as might be called today,
working with the herbs and oils and the combinations for the
special essence and odors that might be obtained from same.
22. The name then was Shuelmeur. The entity gained throughout
that experience, for that it applied such for the preparation
of the mind to be attuned from the material to the spiritual.
Yet these might easily become the source or means rather than
just the urge to be induced. Hence as indicated, the senses
or the sensual things may easily lead the entity astray,
unless it be well grounded in the spiritual ideals and
5277-1 19. The entity then learned from nature, understanding of the
manifesting of life in the earth. The entity had the
abilities in the hands to make things, to bring to pass in
the experiences of others by using what is sometimes called
magic. It is natural law of attraction or repulsion of
activities by rote of mind, as well as elements in nature
itself; for, as is understood by those who would interpret
man correctly, the body-physical if alive is composed of all
the elements in the earth. Some have antipathy, others have
attraction, and the attraction may be used to create, or
antipathy may be made to work against or produce thoughts,
conditions, emotions in the bodies of others.
20. These the entity used, not too seriously, yet to its own
questioning by others.
21. Thus in the present, in relationships which have been with
peoples and groups, sometimes a question mark, and yet
greater are the abilities of the entity even in the present
to use divine science, or divine attraction, to bring to pass
in its experience those things which may help or hinder.
22. Never use thy abilities for self-indulgence or self
gratification; it becomes sin.
[Do I think there is any substance and truth in magic? - Definitely! I think
its use should be curtailed except when a good for others can be done, and it
is needed. Even when hungry, Christ would not turn stones into bread, though,
He was fully able.]
