PME-commentary Pyrhum

Pyrhum- The fire sphere


As I enter the sphere of Pyrhum I see the world as it was first conceived a fiery, molten sphere. Nothing solid and the sky itself is sweltering heat. I get my bearings and imagine the sigil of Pyrhum before me glowing red hot. I call out his name and in the room where my body resides I hear the faint crack of the candle that is lit to my right. I call out again to Pyrhum and his mind finds mind. He draws towards me with lightning speed and his attention and awareness are light a searchlight directed towards me. We meet and size each other up. I speak his name as I draw my awareness back towards my room and into the nearby astral plane. My mirror has his image but most of the time we speak to each other mind to mind

We have some minor small talk and greetings. I feel my body wants to move about as if I had a dose of caffeine. Pyrhum's presence makes one feel very active and filled with energy. The searchlight feeling is Pyrhum's outer aura his inner aura can be described as sharp and fierce like five swords with a swirling fiery center. I begin the questioning. (J- me, P-Pyrhum)

J= what can be achieved in magic through the element of fire?

P=Anything relating to will and desire owe their origin to the fire element. Flashes of inspiration come from the will to know and the light of awareness seeking and finding the desire. Once one masters fire and the will, nothing can be denied of that person. They will have a desire and their will shall immediately seek out the solution. It is a force of its own that cannot be hindered.

J=How does one reach mastery of the will and fire?

P=In order to release the inner will and mastery of fire, one must take on goals that are difficult to achieve. Then one must do everything they can to conquer that goal absolutely. The feeling that arises upon success is the inner will and fire. More goals conquered will strengthen this power until one comes to be familiar with this power.

J=Bardon speaks of humans making pacts with spirits. Have you any knowledge of this or know humans who have done this?

P=Yes. Magicians make pacts and enter the fire sphere or any sphere of a being they make a pact with in order to come to a greater mastery of an element or power. This is for magicians who have the "Long View"*. Magicians with the Long View see no problem with a pact and know this speeds their development and mastery over the elements. The deal is made before hand and a familiar is assigned to the magician so they can learn about the element in the physical. After the death of the magician they enter into the sphere of the element and work with the familiar and under the principal the familiar works with. This aids both the magician and the familiar. Spirits grow more powerful with their interaction with a human master. Once the magician has served their period of time in the sphere they return to the physical with a greater mastery over an element. These are people who excel in that element in their life and find it easy to work with that power. There is much to tell about this sort of work.

J=Could you explain more on how one works with a familiar of the fire element?

P= Familiars depend on the deal made and what the magician is willing to expend in order to work with the spirit. Lesser familiars need a flame that constantly burns and certain herbs to be burnt as an offering. These offer mostly inspiration and some minor aid. These familiars greatly appreciate the chance to work with a human for they develop quickly from this. Greater familiars require greater offerings but give more aid. They participate in rituals and can find spirits that will answer whatever questions their master may have. In either case the pact must be fully explained and at no time does the magician give over his soul, unless temporarily to learn more about the element as I discussed before. A deal can even be made to serve during the life of the magician when the magician sleeps. Other deals can be made as well. One should speak with a principal of the sphere first in order to be given the proper familiar.



I thank Pyrhum, and ask if I meditate with him for a few moments which he agrees to. After this I again thank him and return him to his sphere. I then end the ritual write what I needed down and drew Pyrhum. As you can see he is a beautiful creature with very large eyes.

Although Pyrhum has a potent aura that is very active he is not what I expected from Bardon's description. I expected a very forceful being that would be difficult to deal with. Pyrhum was kind and forthcoming with answers. He also surprised me with the information on pacts. I was expecting something along the lines that humans that worked with the fire element (or any power or force over another) too much were simply drawn into the fire element by resonance until they could release themselves by working through it. Pyrhum's answer made sense in the bigger, cosmic scheme of things once I thought about it. If this is actually the case I can see why Bardon said what he did on pacts. He was likely worried that his readers would immediately go signing pacts to master the elements. I can see the benefits and the dangers in this. If a magician or dabbler who was not truly prepared for such a pact agreed to one than they may not attempt to reach mastery in one life as Bardon's work teaches us. This could hinder a magicians growth in the sense of not being absolutely balanced and not as much help to mankind as they could be. One should attain the Long View before making any decision of this nature and then only through deep meditation and possibly asking Divine Providence directly or ones Angel.



*The Long View is apparently the ability to see that one reincarnates in order to eventually master our sphere. The Long View is a patient view of spiritual development and trust in the natural order that eventually mastery shall be attained. I also gleaned that this was a common practice in the "old religion" or magical cults of ancient times. It would be similar to eastern monks who work on one aspect of the divine for several lifetimes and once mastered move on to the next until all aspects have been mastered and total enlightenment is achieved. It is not a new age-y notion of reincarnation, it is the **KNOWING** that one reincarnates. To use a movie reference it is not Morpheus telling Neo he is "The One", but Neo finally believing absolutely he is the One. All of the Long View information was transmitted in what I call an information "packet". A spirit will say something that I have no previous idea of and instead of explaining it the information is just revealed to the magician instantly. Sometimes larger packets can be sent which will take days, weeks, months or even years to fully "unwrap" based on the development of the magician.

  1. hei my dear friend!
    In your experience what happens if I enter in trance in the akasha and "vibrate" the sigil of spirit? Its possible the mind of the spirit go to my mind? Its possible the quality of the spirit change the akasha and I withdraw this quality to my mental, astral body?

    thanks your help!

  2. What will happen is you will come into a pure mental contact with the spirit. Then spend some time on each of the levels. That will create a powerful evocation.

  3. I accidently deleted a comment just posted. So sorry, my phone can be a bit eccentric...it being my phone and all. Again sorry! Feel free to repost the comment. But the answer was no, i did not use the code. Just the sigil and his name. I focused on his attributes and connected with the idea and used the sigil as a guide. Most sensitives will tell you just looking at a sigil can call a spirit.

  5. Hei JB!
    Bardon says in PME with each spirit have a dark side, a negative being.

    1. The universe is all about finding balance and harmony, it is a process and because of that it is not static but dynamic. For this to happen two poles of every idea and force seek to balance the force they rule. Therefore you have the highest ideal and the darker material power.
      I have never caled on or evoked any of the spirits "darker" negative beings, no. Can't give you a good answer to this other than lack of interest in doing so. I have called negative spirits and some considered evil in order to understand those forces better and for certain tasks, but other than that I do not usually work with darker forces.

  6. Hey Justin! It is still possible find the images of the Bardon's spirits of your posts? The links don't work...

    1. I need to post them again. I deleted the old site. Still debating whether or not to repaint them all or not.

    2. Okay.
      I hope they come back.
      They are available in any of your books?

      Delete
    3. Thry will, they are on a list of to-do's
      The old pics are not in any books, they are mostly rough paints and nothing i was too proud of but enough to visually show the spirit. They are "bardon's" spirits so to make money on a book of his works does not sit well with me.

    4. I have read in some old comment, that you are working in a "magical copendium" (like PME).
      Its possible you say more about this project?
      Im asking because this is a really good idea!

      Thanks.

    5. It got transmuted into some of my other works and along with the books for the HMS order. It will have a grimoire within it.

      Delete
    6. But, you will put this to out or is just a internal order grimoire?
      Thanks again.

      Delete
    7. The grimoire is part of the system and the system will be published. The Wanderer is the first book in the series.

  7. Bardon stated that our human spirit is immortal but if we make a pact with a demon and stay in there sphere for too long we will become q demon and lost immortality . Do you believe in that justin? i personally don't i believe that we are always immortal and invincible.

    1. Imagine you are a rock. Every hour of every day, every second you do nothing but conceive of yourself as a rock. What are you? A person who has fooled themselves into thinking they are a rock. How do you get convinced you are not a rock, you are a person thinking they are a rock? This is what the human spirit is. In every life they take on a new mask and fool themselves that they are the mask. You can get lost in the mask, forgetting you are a spirit.The spirit is eternal because the spirit is a mask of the Unity, the Divine. It is GOD pretending it is separate from god, just like we pretend we are individual units and not a part of the unity, not the bodies we inhabit or the temporary personalities we work in. All just masks wearing masks, when what we really are is all GOD.

  8. Do you think pyrhum could set fire to objects on command?

  9. Hei!
    When you see the name PYRHUM using kabalah, what is your opinion about the M in the name of the spirit in your personal experience and knowledge. I mean, the M in material world is the control of all fluid things, and power over the magnetic fluid.
    My only thoughts in this is if the fluid is the transformation worked and done by the fire, but we have the problem of magnetic fluid.
    In my experience I see him like a great amout of will; every time I meet him I have a burst of my personal will, I dont see magnetic fluid in him.
    Please, have some thoughts to help me?
    Thanks!

    1. The same can be seen in Michael. Think of the M as waves of energy, like an infinite ocean of force and not just liquid and you will achieve the idea.

  10. hello Justin how does one need to unwrap all packs of information based on thier development? what kind of development is this in a magician? what kind of energy should i use to improve intuition? i want to enhance my intuition so spirits can directly pass knowledge and information to me no matter how large it is

    1. It is all based on what you know and understand. Spirits speak a symbolic language that gets translated into ours by means of the soul and spirit. Anything not understood in the energy packet moves you to do things to understand, so for instance, you know a little about herbs and wish to learn more occult secrets about them so you call a spirit over herbology. It communicates with you in a normal fashion and you get inspired with a few ideas. However in this example maybe you are missing some bit of practical knowledge. This information was given to you but you do not have the requisite knowledge to decipher it. A few things can happen, it could occur to you later as an inspiration out of the blue, it could be you walk into a bookstore and find the perfect book on herbology, or meet someone who knows the info you need. All of this was from the spirits influence but required the right circumstances to be deciphered.

  11. hello justin how do i balance or remove excess elemental energy in my body for example fire. do i need to balance it with water or something. does this weaken the will power?

    1. That is a more complex question then you may realize. Did you add more on purpose? Reverse the process ala pore breathing or imagination. If it is just your astral makeup then follow Bardon's steps on soul mirror work and go from there. It is all very personal and unique to the individual so a catch all answer would not suffice.

  13. Hello JB. For evocation, can I replace the sword/dagger with a gun and replace the wand with a pen/pencil.


    IMO, a gun have more in common with the fire element/willpower than a sword doe. A pen/cil is also more analogous for the air element/intellect than a wand.

    1. Anything can be turned into a magical tool if one applies the imagination and the will. I would not recommend certain things, such as the above suggestion. These particular tools have a deeper meaning then you may now immediately perceive. I would recommend deeper research and meditation on what these tools and your suggested replacements may mean symbolically because that is where they are effective at. That being said, it is in the end *your* magick and not mine.

  14. One more question. Does spirits interfere with electronics? Can I evoke them with light on?

    What will happen if I bind spirit to a machine? Will the machine run more efficiently?

    1. Spirits surround us all the time.

      Depends on the spirit and depends on the machine. I would recommend speaking with the spirit and making sure it agrees.
