This simple ritual occurred spontaneously when Trace visited myself and Lolita. We worked on the concept that we each have many persona’s inside us that need expression, but that we each may have a persona that we most need to awaken at this point. I think David Bowie said something along those lines back in the 1970s. Perhaps it inspired the multiple selves view of magical psychology found in Chaos Magic. The intent of this rite was to gain information concerning the nature of that persona in us that most needed awakening at this point, and information concerning its expression. In this way we each aimed to unlock a new ‘glamour’.
The method was simple. We set up an atmospheric room with candles and incense around, and put an altar on the floor in the form of a brass tray. Lolita and I placed specific yellow magic dolls on the altar whilst Trace used a troll doll with rainbow hair she had brought with her. We sat around this tray on Zen meditation cushions, and began chanting. The idea of the chant was to enter glossolalia. Because trace was unfamiliar with this we all started by simply chanting ‘om’ repeatedly.
Afterwards we shared any ideas concerning how the others sounded, how each of the dolls looked, and our own insights into our contacted glamours.
