The Chaos Magick Audios by Peter J. Carroll et al (The Original Falcon Press)
Volume 1: The Cthonos Rite by Peter J. Carroll
music & sound effects by Sam Welbourne & Dan Sumpter
This volume consists of two CD’s.
The first has an introduction to the ‘Philosophy and Practice of Magick’ (about 24 minutes). In his usual dry but clear way Peter Carroll talks about the role of the unconscious mind and other considerations necessary for successful magick. This is followed by an introduction to the “Cthonos Rite” The first CD closes with short descriptions of the six Chambers
- The Philosophy & Practice of Magick
- Introduction to Cthonos Rite
- Using the Cthonos Rite CD
- The Pit
The second CD contains the Cthonos Rite:
- Beginning the Cthonos Rite
- The 1st Chamber—Evocation
- The 2nd Chamber—Divination
- The 3rd Chamber—Enchantment
- The 4th Chamber—Invocation
- The 5th Chamber—The Pit
- The 6th Chamber—Illumination
We are guided through the six temples or chambers. We hear of the specific colours and symbols necessary to perform the various acts leading to Illumination.
Although these tapes date from the early 2000’s they have not lost their efficacy. Carroll’s voice is calm and strangely re-assuring even when we are facing disintegration. The sound effects enhance the journey admirably.
Volume 3 ‘The Ouranos Rite’ by Peter J. Carroll
“Nothing is true: everything is permitted”
“About the CD ……The seven classical planetary bodies can be used to represent the spectrum of psychology. Ouranos (Uranus), the eighth body, orbits outside the sphere of the classical planets- and of the god-forms or thought-forms attributed to them. Thus it forms an ideal symbol for that which encompasses all of the gods within its orbit, namely, the magical personality. It represents not the power of the magic itself, (which is attributed to Pluto), but rather the desire to be a magician, and the personality required to live as one.Ouranos can also be thought of as the dark side of the Sun. Ouranos represents something more dark—and perhaps devious—creeping around in the darkness outside of the normal.”
The CD contains:
- Invocation I
- Invocation I (short version)
- Invocation II
- Invocation II (short version)
- Invocation III
- Ouranian Sonic Invocation
It is amazing to hear Peter Carroll doing the various invocations. This is one of the invocations:
I OURANOS GOD OF MAGIC
OPEN THE GATES TO THE SUBCONSCIOUS
I OURANOS OF THE OCTARINE FIRE
OPEN THE GATES TO THE AETHER
I OURANOS INVOKE THE OURANIAN WYRDSPEECH
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH ME
AS I SPEAK IN TONGUES OF CHAOS
There is a booklet with the invocations.
It also includes information about the Ouranian /Barbaric language, plus an English / Ouranian dictionary.
The last section, ’the Ouranian Sonic Invocation’ is amazing and lasts for just over 29 minutes. It is completely hypnotic and induces a trance-like condition. I can imagine swirling, like dervishes, completely negating the conscious mind and allowing the sub-conscious mind to work/do whatever is necessary.
See also http://www.chaosmatrix.org/library/chaos/rites/ouranos.html for more information about the rite and the formation of a servitor.
NB: A servitor is an artificial energy being, conjured by a person who usually practices some form of magick (Wicca, chaos magick, natural magick, etc.). The conjurer’s intent and focus results in light, gray, or dark-natured servant (servitor) who is later bound by the recipient upon receiving the servitor’s vessel. This vessel can be a pendant, a rock, or whatever.
Servitors are usually conjured to assist people with a specific need – protection, developing paranormal skills, telepathy are a few.
