Magic Works

Welcome to my gallery!

These works are generated as components or expressions of magical operations and are created in ceremonial conditions, Some pieces include an occult technique embedded in the form itself, others invite us to attend to a particular aspect of our practice

I also create bespoke magical artworks. Please contact me via contactdeepmagic@gmail.com with your commission proposal. All artworks available here are originals.

Enchantment:

The Great Mystery is a Well that Never Runs Dry

The Tao is like a well: used but never used up. It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.

It is hidden but always present. I don’t know who gave birth to it. It is older than the gods.

Enchantment:

Primal Bifurcation

Hear now the Word of Madness and Mystery.

I am movement and chaos, and I am the stillness inside of you. 

Self-born, untaught, motherless, unshakable. Giving place to no name, many-named, dwelling in fire. 

I am the secret Serpent coiled about to spring and in my coiling there is joy. I have made a hollow skin, from the heart of the holy tree, I compassed the earth therein, and rise from the depths of the Sea. 

I who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among stars, the soul of nature, that gives life to the universe.

Enchantment:

Dissolution, Revolution, Evolution

Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.

The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.

Therefore the Master remains
serene in the midst of sorrow.
Evil cannot enter his heart.
Because he has given up helping,
he is people’s greatest help.

True words seem paradoxical.

Enter, master, into my mind, and grant me memory. Do this monthly, facing the moon, on the first day [of the month]. Prostrate yourself before the goddess, and wear the tablet as an amulet.

Enchantment:

Descending Sigilization

The desire to be great can only become organic at a time of vacuity, and by giving it (Sigil) form. When conscious of the Sigil form (any time but the Magical) it should be repressed, a deliberate striving to forget it, by this it is active and dominates at the unconscious period, its form nourishes and allows it to become attached to the subconsciousness and become organic, that accomplished, is its reality and realization.

The Detonation of Language

DUST-DEVILS
In the Wind of the mind arises the turbulence called I
It breaks; down shower the barren thoughts.
All life is choked.
This desert is the Abyss wherein is the Universe
The Stars are but thistles in that waste.
Yet this desert is but one spot accursed in a world of bliss.
Now and again Travellers cross the desert; they come from the Great Sea, and to the Great Sea they go.
As they go they spill water; one day they will irrigate the desert, till it flower.
See! five footprints of a Camel! V’ V’ V’ V’ V’

Enchantment:

Shamanic Costume

A shaman wears regalia, some part of which usually imitates an animal—most often a deer, a bird, or a bear. It may include a headdress made of antlers or a band into which feathers of birds have been pierced. The footwear is also symbolic—iron deer hooves, birds’ claws, or bears’ paws. The clothing of the shamans among the Tofalar (Karagasy), Soyet, and Darhat are decorated with representations of human bones—ribs, arm, and finger bones. The shamans of the Goldi-Ude tribe perform the ceremony in a singular shirt and in a front and back apron on which there are representations of snakes, lizards, frogs, and other animals.

Enchantment:

Occult Sun

There was nothing more. Dyson let the little pocket-book fall, and turned and looked again at the opal with its flaming inmost light, and then with unutterable irresistible horror surging up in his heart, grasped the jewel, and flung it on the ground, and trampled it beneath his heel. His face was white with terror as he turned away, and for a moment stood sick and trembling, and then with a start he leapt across the room and steadied himself against the door. There was an angry hiss, as of steam escaping under great pressure, and as he gazed, motionless, a volume of heavy yellow smoke was slowly issuing from the very centre of the jewel, and wreathing itself in snake-like coils above it. And then a thin white flame burst forth from the smoke, and shot up into the air and vanished; and on the ground there lay a thing like a cinder, black and crumbling to the touch.

Shaman’s Dream

Because I can swim in the immense
Because I can swim in all forms
Because I am the launch woman
Because I am the sacred opossum
Because I am the Lord opossum

I am the woman Book that is beneath the water, says
I am the woman of the populous town, says
I am the shepherdess who is beneath the water, says
I am the woman who shepherds the immense, says
I am a shepherdess and I come with my shepherd, says

Because everything has its origin
And I come going from place to place, from the origin..

Enchantment:

Esoteric Text

This power is neither heavenly nor spiritual; neither is it an influence from disembodied spirits. It is the human spirit-magnetism within the self of the one doing the writing. When the thoughts have taken possession of the mind and are not consciously directed, one becomes subject to their promptings and, unconsciously, or automatically, takes a pencil and writes them down. The oftener this is done the stronger becomes the magnetic prompting. For instance, one may learn a lesson or poem by heart, and he repeats and repeats it so often that the thoughts take possession of him and he will repeat it unconsciously even in his sleep.

Enchantment:

Secret Words

It is therefore not quite certain in what the efficacy of [barbarous] conjurations really lies. The peculiar mental excitement required may be aroused by the perception of the absurdity of the process, and the persistence in it, as when once Frater Perdurabo [Crowley] (at the end of his magical resources) recited “From Greenland’s Icy Mountains” and obtained his result.

“It may be conceded in any case the long strings of formidable words which roar and moan through so many conjurations have a real effect in exalting the consciousness of the magician to the proper pitch — that they should do so is no more extraordinary than music of any kind should do so.

Enchantment:

Invocation

Invocations to modify the ego are ritual enchantments and personifications of the new desired qualities. Attention should be given to planned changes of dress, tone of speech, gesture, mannerisms and body posture which will best suit the new ego. One manoeuvre frequently used in yellow magic is to practice the
manifestation of an alternative personality with a specific mnemonic trigger, such as the transference of a ring from one finger to another.

In 1882 an anonymous book named OAHSPE, A Kosman Bible was published in New York. It was subsequently revealed in a letter to the Editor of The Banner of Light, a Boston periodical, that its author was a dentist named Dr. John Ballou Newbrough and that the book had been written, mostly in the dark, through the agency of automatic writing. Newbrough claimed indeed that the book was written not by himself but through ‘some other intelligence’ using him as a vehicle.
