Personal Temple of a Golden Dawn Magician in Long Beach, California

by Golden Dawn Imperator
David Griffin

Over the past year, the Alpha Omega has led the way in creating one resource after the other for Self-Initiaties and Solitary 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 some 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 exceeded all expectations. Even today, we 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, Frater E.S., from Long Beach, California would like to share the development of his Personal Temple with you.

Temple Construction in Long Beach, California

Frater E.S. writes:
"This temple sits on a foundation of round and square stones. The round stones form a circle within a circle underneath the structure (two concentric circles) with another round stone directly under the center. Each round stone is painted green with a Rune and Ogham Few written upon them. The sides of the temple are supported by 18 square stones. One side is painted black, the other white. In each corner of the foundation is also a square stone (four in total) painted in the colors of Malkuth. Everything, shapes, colors, and including the number of nails or screws has been coordinated to create the right symbolism. The subfloor has painted upon it a giant Star of the Magi (visible in the picture). The entire structure is 16x16 feet by 9-feet tall. There are many other occult plans as the build continues. The floor will be tiled, the door is on the West wall and looks like a medieval castle door, the outer walls will be stone to look like a castle, large lodestones will be hidden in the walls at each point of the Star, and many other mysteries."
We invite you to share your personal temple with our readers too. 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.
