When I first contacted the Golden Dawn through Cris Monnastre, I was oblivious to the consequences a simple postcard from Cairo would have for decades to come - not only for me personally, but for the history of the entire Golden Dawn as well.
I came to Cairo to consecrate my elemental wand inside the King's chamber of the Great Pyramid of Khufu. How I created the Wand of Power is a story for another day. Having added the names of power on the wand in purest gold, each in a different city, and having crowned the wand with tips of pure gold and silver under the light of a total Solar eclipse ...
The Wand of Power at last was ready for consecration. And what better place to consecrate such a wand than inside of the King's chamber of the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
|The Wand of Power|
But destiny, it turned out, had other plans…
I had been constructing the wand for over a year when I discovered the perfect pretext to consecrate the wand in Egypt. There would be a New Age event there in 1992, to begin preparation for the 2012 end of the Mayan calendar.
Thus, I prepared myself with 6 months of a strictly vegetarian diet, combined with a severe regimen of fasting.
Thus, upon my arrival in Egypt, I was extremely sensitive to the energies around the pyramids. I also found myself surrounded by an amazing New Age side show, with people expecting everything from the appearance of UFOs, to the arrival of the Count of St. Germain, or the appearance of the Virgin of Fatima.
Nonetheless, I took everything happening around me as having symbolical value, in consideration of the personal spiritual mission I was on. Thus, I was quite dismayed when my room-mate, provided by the New Age crew, used a pendulum to convince me I should not consecrate the wand inside of the King's chamber, since, despite all of my fasting and dietary regimen, I had not undergone half a year of chastity, which my wife would never have supported to begin with.
Although I considered this but New Age nonsense, I could nevertheless not overlook a symbolical event prohibiting me from carrying out the plan for which I had come to Egypt. Thus, as sad as it made me, I left my wand back at the hotel when we as a group visited the King's chamber the next day. It broke my heart to do so, but the signs were clear enough. What happened inside the pyramid was even more astonishing, however.
I had a powerful and life changing vision while inside the sarcophogus, which left no doubt the Golden Dawn was right path for me. Far more surprising, however, was what else happened inside that chamber. Emerging from the pyramid, I found my pendulum-wielding room-mate, writhing in pain. Inside the King's Chamber, he had broken his thumb, lost his pendulum, and the hand he used to wield it was now swollen up like a tamale.
While he was whisked off to the hospital, I returned to my hotel room flabbergasted by everything. Never again would I see spirituality and sexuality as in any way contrary or incompatible. The psychic pseudo-conflict between the two, caused by my childhood Christian upbringing, had been overcome forever.
The next day, it became clear why an invisible hand had prevented me from consecrating the Wand of Power inside the King's chamber. The following night, I was offered to climb to the top of the Great Pyramid...
And this time all of the signs were "go."
Prior to our pilgrimage, we anointed one another's feet with rose oil, then began the long ascent up the pyramid. The stones are just small enough to ascend one level at a time, using both hands and feet. About two thirds the way up, I made the mistake to look down and was overwhelmed with vertigo. The rest of the journey, I kept my eyes fixed only on the next stone in front of me.
The true astonishment came once I arrived at the summit. There I discovered why I had been stopped from consecrating the Wand of Power inside the King's Chamber. Here, and nowhere else, at the apex of the Great Pyramid, was the only place on Earth worthy of the consecration of such a wand.
I have never experienced such powerful energies anywhere else on Earth. Here, at the apex of the pyramid, and not in the King's chamber as everyone believes, lies the true focal point of the energies.
I walked well away from the others and performed the sacred Egyptian rite of consecration, which I guard as a personal secret until today.
This was my adventure consecrating the Wand of Power in Egypt, which began my meteoric career in the Golden Dawn. Such was the burning fire of my spiritual aspiration when I first sought initiation.
Today, two decades later, this fire still burns strongly within me. It is this nobility of purpose and purity of heart that has sustained me through two decades of nearly non-stop attacks on the Alpha et Omega, and has protected me from the Dark Secret that has infiltrated the heart of the Golden Dawn.
