Personal Temples: A Personal Temple from Salt Lake City, UT

by Golden Dawn Imperator
David Griffin

Most readers are already aware the Alpha Omega has for nearly a year led the way yet once again, by providing guidance for Individual Practitioners of the Magic of Light.

In the first phase of this initiative, the A.O. began fostering the creation of Personal Magical Temples across the world, with the goal of lighting "1,000 Points of the Magic of Light." This initiative was met with kind words and warm appreciation from across the entire Golden Dawn  community.

Here is what two of our readers are saying:
"I am just loving this project. Thank you Mr. Griffin for the resources that you are unveiling to us all :). Maybe I can feel little bit more comfortable about what I'm doing knowing that there are many others out there doing the same thing. Many times I forget that and kind of give up." - Brian Jones II 
"Good news for solitary practitioners! We are just waiting for more. Thank you!" - Frater C.F.

The"1,000 Points of Light" initiative has exceeded all expectations. We are continue to be inundated with photographs of Personal Temples from around the world. Rest assured that over time, each and every one of them will eventually be published.

This time, Soror S.A., from Salt Lake City, would like to share her Personal Temple with readers of The Golden Dawn Blog. Soror S.A. writes:
"Thank you for the opportunity to share photos of my personal temple with the Alpha Omega, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. And thank you Imperator L.e.S. for the work you have done and for the Order website, including the Contemporary Golden Dawn Articles/Hermetic and Rosicrucian Timeline.  
My temple (the first of which was in Kelly, WY) is located in Salt Lake City, UT. It is the result of regular and disciplined work with Donald Michael Kraig's, "Eleven Lessons in the High Magickal Arts" beginning some thirteen years ago -a book which changed my life, my purpose and my understanding of all things in the most absolute way. Expressed briefly, the results were so effective that I deemed it prudent to put my work "on hold" for a period of time by limiting the nature and frequency of certain rituals... 
Once again, I send my deep appreciation for the opportunity to bring my own little temple into the light of the greater Golden Dawn community, and that of the Alpha Omega, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn."

Keep up the good work, Sister!

We invite you to share your personal temple with our readers as well. You can send us a photo of your personal temple here.
(Please try to keep the file size somewhat small. Also, please let us know if you would like your name or motto to appear. Otherwise, we will include only the city. 
We further invite you to post your feedback and personal magical experiences in the comment's section below. Many of these will be featured prominently in future blog posts, as was the feedback from magicians above.)
The 1,000 Points of Light initiative is just one small way the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn are serving the needs of the greater esoteric community. If you can think of others, please do let us know! The idea for this marvelous 1,000 Points of Light initiative came from one of our readers from California!

We are here to help you meet the needs of your magical practice.

Remember, in the ...

Alpha Omega
We make Magicians!
