Practical Elemental Magick: Working the Magick of Air Fire Water & Earth in the Western Esoteric Tradition, by David Rankine and Sorita d'Este
This month, December 2017, I gave exams for the brown belt in Judo. The brown belt is the last belt before giving exams for the grade of 1st Dan black belt. The brown belt (1st kyu) in Judo is the most important belt in my opinion because as students we have seen by now the Gokyo no Waza which is the material of techniques learned in Kodokan since 1895. Teaching for five years Chapkoondo and Taekwondo, and heading for my third black belt at the age of 25 in Judo and also having passed time studying magic, I came to spot some similarities between magic and martial arts.
T.H. Pattinson was a watchmaker in Yorkshire of northern England and a member of Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia (S.R.I.A.). He was initiated in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn in 1888, thus he was one of the first members. At 20th of June he wrote a letter to Westcott, the founder of the Golden Dawn, in which he describes a vision he had. The letter can be found in R.A. Gilbert's book, The Golden Dawn Scrapbook, Weiser 1997
I have already written an article about this subject but I want to expand and share another spell from PGM VII 429-458 In that spell Osiris is called with voces magicae implying their secret names. The interesting thing is that the spell is short and quick but it also requires knot magick if you release the katadesmos in special places, using again the famous voces magicaes ASKEI KAI TASKEI (as the ancient text writes).
