The famous magickal circle before being a kind of protection, define the perimeter of a being, of a star in an ideal cosmos. The simple act of tracing a magical circle cut-up reality and senses and project one’s soul into a different realm of perception and significance. When the subtle line of chalk, salt dust or draw in the sand meets its end, or its beginning like an Ouroboros serpent, the first leaking energy, flowing power within it is one’s very own. And even before adding any Holy Name, the circle’s power manifest one’s Essence or Augoeides.
And it is only this simple but meaningful experience of presence and awareness that will make your magickal circle impenetrable, first and absolute manifestation of One’s True Self, Holy experience. And that’s the trick against the ghosts and all crappy illusions dwelling around and within…
