I’m still moving forward with my Liber KKK training. While I’m really excited to work towards later parts of the book, I think I’m moving a bit too fast. I was rereading Liber Kaos today and ran across the portion where Carroll states that one success with a particular conjuration should be the minimum done, and he recommends that you have five successes before moving forward. Throughout my college days, I was an A student. it had nothing to do with being smarter, it was just a matter of dedication and effort. I have a feeling that if I rush too fast through the foundation level portions of this training that I’m not going to truly have what I need to continue well with the process. So, I’m going to relax a bit, do a few more enchantments, a few more evocations, some divining and continue work towards my illumination and invocation.
On that note, my Tarot cards are helping me choose the subject for my Invocation. I haven’t quite narrowed it down yet, but I’m sure it will be a good choice. For my first Illumination, I have decided that my lamp will be a necklace. I will start crafting the pendant this week. In the interim, I have tons to do with work, the new house, and a family that all need plenty of much deserved attention.
