Sealing the directions using IAO (reblogged from Nick Farrell)

Nick Farrell wrote: For a while I wondered why in the Sepher Yetzirah it refers to God by the name יהו instead of the more traditional tetragrammaton. This might be because the writer was using the name in Greek IAΩ. This name was the name given to the Tetragrammaton in the Greek translation of the Old Testament but was also a name given to Jupiter and was a mystical cry in the mystery rites. IAΩ was the letters of the sun, moon and Saturn in Greece, but it was also the first, middle and last letters of the alphabet. Translating it back into the original Greek it starts to make sense in that context.

He looked forward and sealed the East, with A I Ω.
He looked to the right and sealed the South, with Ω I A.
He looked behind and sealed the West, with Ω A I.
He looked to the left and sealed the north with A Ω I.
He looked below and sealed the deep, with I Ω A.
He looked above and sealed the height, with I A Ω.

Custom made chalices

And now an ad from one of our members:


Here are some of the chalices that were made recently. There is a large variety of symbols that can be used: Templar cross, Wicca pentacle, triple moon, and horned god. There are also several scrolls that can be applied. We have a variety of glaze colors to choose from; all of them are food safe. The chalices are hand thrown, underglazed and fired, then overglazed and fired a second time. The whole process from start to finish takes seven to eight weeks.

If you are interested in ordering a custom made chalice, check out Khari's Wiccan Treasures on Etsy.

Not connected to the Chrysi Augi

Let it be known that the Ba Iset Order of the Rosy Cross (Evolving Order of Eclectic Ways/Ba Iset Order of the Golden Dawn) is in no way connected to the organization of the Greek political party known as  Chrysi Augi (which Greek name translated in English means "Golden Dawn").

Our Order has nothing in common with the Chrysi Augi which is a political organization with possible Neo-Nazi leanings.

The BIORC/EOEW/BIOGD is an organization devoted to the study of esoteric knowledge of the Western Mystery Tradition popularized by the lodge system started in 1888 by William Westcott and Samuel Mathers, an Order that is occasionally referred to by the name Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (not to be confused with the two modern groups that currently hold the trademark of that name--which the BIORC also has no organizational link to).

Golden Dawn History 1998

January 1998, after a couple of months of organizing in the last part of 1997, the Evolving Order of Eclectic Ways opens up its doors in Denver, Colorado. On October 16, 2000, several members of this group will form Bast Temple (Golden Dawn in the Outer, Ruby Rose and Golden Cross in the Inner) which would become the Mother Lodge of the Ba Iset Order of the Golden Dawn/Ba Iset Order of the Rosy Cross. On June 29, 2013, the Ba Iset Order of the Rosy Cross would start to use the name of the Evolving Order of Eclectic Ways once again, in order to help avoid being confused with the Greek Neo-Nazi party: The People's Association--Golden Dawn (Λαϊκός Σύνδεσμος – Χρυσή Αυγή).

A performance of the LBRP



Here is a performance of the Lesser Ritual of the Pentagram, banishing version (LBRP), that I did recently as a test video for a possible series of videos for the lodge, Order and myself. I still need to figure out a better place to do this type of stuff in, given the amount of background noise that you cn hear.
