    Since the dawn of time, people of native Earth have manifested and devised symbols that hold together their intent and desires for power. They would often forge these symbols from precious metals, stones and other materials that held a sacred and divine significance. The ownership of such objects of power, were believed to be able to change the landscape of time itself, depending on the will of the user.

    The creators of such symbols- over time- became held with great esteem. This may in fact be the reason why mansons and blacksmiths of the past were able to erect such secret societies. They were simply artists and spiritual scientists that invested their energy into the darkarts and other shamanistic traditions.

    These symbols were not based on mere superstition but were qualified by actual events that proceeded when in use. Unknown to most, wars are still waged around the globe in order to acquire ancient and rare artifacts that we only hear about in folklore.

    Any object that can retain the abuse of the centuries that has been created by magickal hands and was used in some way to manipulate the Universe- is potentially an object of power. Some of the most powerful objects- are beyond the rare Mayan and African talismans, the ark of the covenant- or even crystal skulls. Even the magickal words of the ancients engraved into stone can perform a frequency shift- something that is required in order to substantiate real magick.

    Frequency shifters is all that they are, and all the power anyone in this realm may ever require. The bending of time and space- required nothing more than a wand.

    The wand is probably one of the most misunderstood and mocked objects of power and occult magick in the world. Perhaps because most of the cheapest sideshow Magicians have one. It is still unclear whether or not the wand first began as substitute walking stick- it is clear that both went hand in hand literally. The staff is also a wand, in many cases even fictional stories in the bible that speak of staffs are indeed speaking about the wand.
    The wand is an wooden antenna usually carried in the right hand to send out signals of energy.

    There are many types of wands, each for a different purpose or to match the energy of the owner. Wands- like the Male penis- extends the energy from the pineal gland- out into the external Universe. With the proper focus and intent a wand can be a very useful addition. To understand the use of a wand we must first understand that the scenery of reality does not change by the waving of a wand as we told in movies and books. But the alchemical nature of the Universe is compromised by its use. For example, to invoke spirits the ancients normally used wands- for the same reason we may notice musical conductors using the baton- also a wand. It is a way of channeling the user's intent using the air, communicating without language. Wand users will find their telepathy increasing as well because of this.

    If we can call a wand a Male object of power, the female object of power would be the chalice- perhaps a hidden or unknown object of power, yet only viewed as part of sacred ceremonies. Now we may we know it best as the Pimp cup.

    [​IMG]

    From a symbolic reference point, the drinking from a chalice that is an object of power is kin to drinking from the yoni of a very spiritual Mother or Woman. In essence this practice is the keeping of knowledge of where Men get most of their spiritual knowledge from, the Woman and the wealth of intuition that pass through the feminine vortices. Like the wand in the past the chalice was also made in wood and dressed in special gemstones and crystals. It was not rare at all to drink blood and honey from a chalice. But most importantly any drink poured into an object of power such as this would become magickal, an elixir of power. Even the chalice of a King would be handled with great care by special people initiated for that purpose, as drinking from the King's cup could bring about great fortune or death if caught.

    The sweetest elder I've ever had the pleasures of meeting comes to the blues jams sometimes on Sunday afternoon. Her name is very long and I don't recall how to spell it properly so I won't attempt it since the name is a sacred thing. Anyhow, she has a strong wooden staff that she walks with and I told her how much I liked her style, she said to me, that if you needed to walk around you might just as well walk with one of these. Her mojo is intense - you can feel her from across the room.

    My other thought on this is, the search for the holy Grail, in the movie Excalibur. First there is the discovery that the land and the king are one. When Arthur fails and falters so does Camelot. In order to revive him Perceval must find the holy grail, from which Arthur drinks and regains vigor enough to do battle with his bastard son, Mordred, born from his Sister Morgana.

    Of course, Arthur falls after he discovers his Queen Guinevere is actually lovers with his best friend and favored knight Lancelot. Since Guinevere is off the table sexually, she renounces her post and retreats to the nunnery. The Holy Grail (cup / chalice / divine feminine energy) must be found on a quest to return Camelot and Arthur to one last glory.

    I remember thinking that the concept of the land and the King being one, was probably the instigation behind colonialization. The European Caucasian discovered that if he could remove the people from their land, he could actually domesticate them, control them and rule them.

    Which is why I say that to be Kings and Queens we must have land, not just one another.

    Even Excalibur, the sword that the movie is named after, it is forged from the Lady of the Lake, and at the end of the movie Arthur instructs that no good Perceval to return it to the lake. The sword's power is drawn from the feminine and is returned to her when the quest if complete.

    Goddess Phynx, there's allot that we can learn from those elders with walking sticks. I've heard stories about Elders with walking sticks that really didn't need them for walking, they used them to mark the ground as they walked. I had a very long dream awhile back and a native Indian Chief was teaching me about their shamanic traditions of magic.

    He told me some spirits animate from out the earth, and each part of the earth was like a computer motherboard. He said to explain why the crossing over into different territory on the earth is also the entrance into a new dimensional frequency and hence different types of people with different mindsets.

    He also educated me about the feather duster, something I always thought was just for cleaning the house. This is also an object of power and also a wand. It was used by early Shaman to dust the aura, specially the auras of visitors and travelers that were coming into a particular territory from the outside.

    [​IMG]

    The witch's broomstick as shown in most pagan/wiccan traditions is also a wand- following after some of the same principles as the feather duster- and again most people will think it is for cleaning the house. The broomstick was used for chasing away and beating unwanted negative spirits. It is taught in African cultures that the jumping over the broom symbolizes the Wife's willingness to clean up the house of her new family. But the actual meaning that the new couple are entering together into a new and clean world, so long as the broom is kept in working order. Someone needs to start redesigning some of these so-called African traditional weddings because according to the Ancestors they are being performed incorrectly and for selfish reasons.

    The sword Excalibur has been fantasied as real for a long time by Men of power, so much so it's possible it became real. In ancient times there was such a sword or actually a knife, the rock the knife was placed in was magnetite - a magnetic rock, and the knife made of metal, or sometimes different types of ore. It would be difficult to pull the knife out of the rock but not impossible. What became a game was who could produce a knife that was so powerful with metals that it could not be pulled out of the magnetic rock. Of course only the Shamans knew the truth of these metals.

    [​IMG]

    Certain types of knifes easily became objects of power for hunter gathers as well as Warriors. Some of the most powerful knifes were made from obsidian, an type of black volcanic glass that was said to be able to protect Warriors from psychic and spiritual attack. Obsidian was also used for scrying by ancient Africans.

    There are some materials that are said to be still feared by spirits, knifes and swords for example are feared, and especially those made from obsidian.
    It could be because some suggest ancient Magicians learned how to trap souls inside of obsidian rocks.

    Another connection between the male wand and the feminine chalice is the cauldron also a chalice of much larger portions and a wand of power was often used to stir it's contents.

    Detail from 5th section of the Book of Caverns from the tomb of Ramesses VI

    An officiating goddess stokes the fire beneath the enormous cauldron into which the heads and hearts of the enemies are delivered. A second cauldron contains the bound and decapitated bodies of the enemies themselves. The cauldrons are supported by the arms of the "place of annihilation".

    http://www.egyptologyonline.com/funerary_texts.htm

    Cauldrons weren't only used for cooking food but also for combining magickal ingredients along with all the elements, fire, water, air and earth. Incantations were often recited during the mixing. Cauldrons were made out of gold, brass and granite- sometimes dressed in different crystals. While granite is a common, it held a very high place in Mayan culture, used for protection during sacred rituals.

    The Crystal Skulls



    DG Meta, you mentioned extremely briefly the crystal skull being one of those objects that was created with purpose & intent as energy conductors. There is a crystal skull in the British Museum here in London. It's said the skulls are pre-Columbian Mesoamerican but according to certain scientific studies it's claimed the skulls were manufactured in Europe in the mid-19th century.

    We already know the metaphysical properties of Quartz crystals as powerful energy conductors that are able to structure, store, focus, transmit, amplify, & transform energy, which includes matter, emotion, thought & information. Although I study information from European sources, I don't "always" accept the information given from an European worldview & am often researching & looking to see what our intellectual spiritual Queens & Kings have to say on such matters. So I was wondering if anyone had any deeper spiritual or astral insight into these skulls & who created them?

    Love, Peace!

    Goddess Soulosophy, we actually have the technology to produce crystal skulls today, even though many have not realized the connection yet, or that such technology could be used for a variety of materials. Still it would not be as perfect as the crystal skulls found in central America. I am speaking about 3-d printers.

    Nothing new under the sun.




    Crystal skulls were created using some type of quantum holographic computing. Which seems unbelievable based on the age of these skulls. But this is what the womb does also. During the process of creation it was most likely that the quartz was not as solid, almost liquid like a resin. Even now glass resin can be used to stretch the power of a quartz crystal.

    There seems to be many reasons for the creation of crystal skulls but they are definitely objects of power that were used to store critical information about the past as well as future. Native Shamans would also transfer a bit of their energy into the skulls as a way of keeping them safe, a great deal of protection rituals were placed on them too. Many believe these skulls were gifts from cosmic Ancestors that would visit earth. They held the keys for the evolution for that nation or tribe. This is precisely why in the Superman series his fortress of solitude was built by quartz crystals, crystals that kept the holographic memory of his Father- technology so advanced that he could actually interact with it in real time. The very same type of holographic technology was in the movie "I Robot."

    Quartz crystals can be used as 3 dimensional recorders, like video cameras- but recording potential realities and thoughts as well. The truth in this can be found if we purchase a quartz crystal and use it without cleaning or clearing it out. If we lay it next to us while sleeping we will have bizarre dreams about all the people that touched it. Also this is a good sign that a crystal has not been cleared properly. Crystal technology on earth is actually underused. Because all crystal minerals correspond with the stars and star systems.

    On the subject of objects of power - I have always been fascinated by magick rings (Lord of the Rings did not help matters either). I have never much about them from an African perspective until recently (not technically African but Arabic);
