Two weeks ago, on Wednesday, first hour of Mercury, chanting the spells to Invoke Hermes from Graeco-Egyptian Magick…
Hermes manifested in my mind in his classic form of a young athletic boy, winged hat, sandals and the caduceus. He sat down close to me, long before I finished the ritual (this ritual from Graceo-Egyptian Magick was pretty long, but he did not mind me finish it). In this form he represents agility of mind and body, and the ability to go everywhere.
I asked him, What do your roles as a Healer, Divine Messenger, and Magician have in common?
I am the Archetypal Channeler. I connect things and let the information and energy flow. As a healer I channel healing energy. As the messenger I channels the wisdom of the Gods, as the Magician I channel the Creative Forces of the Universe.
Realize also that language is a form of channeling.
Selene (as Yesod/Moon) is also a sort of gateway through which other energies can reach us. What is the difference between you and Selene?
Selene is passive like a mirror, she reflects unmoved. I am the active channeler, I give form and actively shape the things that I channel.
And what about your role as a psychopomp?
I am everywhere, also in the deepest darkness, where I bring small lanterns of the Gods, creating a thread for lost souls to follow home. I can come and be everywhere, without being touched by it.
He took me into an underworld vista, a cave containing some monsters. I reacted a little frightened and Hermes told me that he could teach me his skill of traveling everywhere without being touched by it.
Hermes influence is deeply felt in my life. I am learning business skills to setup my own business, I learn marketing, am drawn to TV series with main characters with mercurial characteristics. A lot of info about Hermes is popping up everywhere, and of course I am looking for more information about him. He fascinates me and I feel a kinship.
I also participated in making a 2nd face of Cancer talisman ruled by Mercury, set up by Christopher Warnock.
I sense that Mercury/Hermes is playing an important part in these planetary initiations. As a connector, opener of the ways, and a teacher of magick… I am exploring the idea of Hermes as an intermediary spirit, anyway, I look forward delving deeper into these mysteries!
