Episode 14 – Understanding Spirit Contact

Episode 14 – Understanding Spirit Contact

Show Highlights:
• Spirit Contact is the act of communicating with spirits of the departed
• Reasons for contacting spirits include: retrieving lost lore, deepening your psychic skills, gaining perspective and understanding for your own issues, forging alliances with spirits for magical work, communicating messages from the departed to their loved ones after, gaining better abilities to eradicate mischievous spirits and more.
• The Unnamed Path uses special techniques to safeguard against mischievous or misleading spirits including working with tutelary deities, engaging spirit guardians, and using the unique capacity to love that we as Men-who-love-men have as a filter to be absolutely sure that the information we are receiving is valid and rooted in love.
• The Skull and Candle are a tool we use in the contacting of spirits. It acts as a portal through which we can summon the dead as well as through which we can assist the dead to cross over to the Underworld. It is a symbol of the Dark God and the enlightenment that’s found in spiritual balance between the Right and Left-hand paths in spirituality.
• More details on spirit contact will be discussed in future podcasts.

  1. I am looking forward to the next segments of this branch – especially contact with deities, being ridden/mounted/”horsed”, as well as how one can support people who are in trance, Whomever they are in contact with.

    Also, although it is given that the Unnamed Path teachings conflate the God/s and Goddess/es into Light & Dark, I would find it useful to hear more about the different aspects or facets of deities from other traditions, if you find that some are more useful or resonant with the Unnamed Path. (For instance, I am part of an eclectic group of mostly northern tradition pagans. When we speak of the Dark Goddess, it is likely to be Hela.) Do you find these differentiations useful at all?

    Thank you for all the work you put into these podcasts.

    (The suggest-a-topic page does not actually have a place to enter topics – I am using IE 6.0 on my work computer, which is otherwise pretty uptodate.)

  2. I’m glad you are enjoying the podcasts. They are really my pride and joy right now, and I look forward to recording them every week. As for your question about the God/Goddess. I don’t use a particular cultural lens on the God and Goddess as I tend to view them as transcendent beyond the individual Gods and Goddesses of other paths. However, if working with a particular God or Goddess within the pantheon you are pulled to works for you, then WONDERFUL! Go for it.

    Since I’m viewing the God dynamic from a gay relationship dynamic, and the Goddess is not his consort then most pantheons out there don’t fit. So I just give them my own names – which are more like titles really – and let them reveal themselves to me. So for example, I call the God: Lumiel – not because I think he’s an angel, or that he’s a biblical figure, but I call him that because he is the “Light of God”. Which for me hearkens to the idea that God is the one who is giving us the light of awareness in order to reach our highest potential.

    Thanks for the tip on the suggest-a-topic page. For some reason WordPress didn’t put a link for commentary so I just made it an email link instead.
