" Originally the name Sanguinomicon came from Father Vincent of House Omega. former fangsmithing name of Father Sebastiaan. This gives the whole project a mysterious feel and breaks the seriousness which is plaguing the vampyre community for the last few years. Being Strigoi Vii and holding a good sense of humor together we named Liber Calmae in our original series the Sanguinomicon.P. This book is a key. Like a mirror it should reflect what you already know and feel.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira INTRODUCTION From before the first conscious memories of mankind our Family has been there.

Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira THE SANGUINARIUM & THE QUEST
The Sanguinarium roughly translates from Latin to mean “the Guild of Blood” and is a term to describe what the Ancients call the Current of Elorath. This current is a mental and spiritual frequency which appeals to a rare selection of individuals on this planet who carry the essence of Elorath, a spiritual Family which has existed since the dawn of time. The Sanguinarium itself is the modern manifestation of this Family, it is the material manifestation of a great awakening and realization of what and who these people known as Strigoi Vii are. The Quest is this great awakening and to find and introduce to our brothers and sisters of the Blood our existence and the opportunity to embrace their potential. The second portion of the Quest is the process of individual metamorphosis and transformation to the level of an immortal known as Zhep’r. The Quest for the outer lay members of the Family is a simple one, while the complexity gains momentum for those who choose to enter our priesthood and take up the duties of leadership. The core group taking responsibility for the execution and motivation of this Quest is an international order of Strigoi Vii Magisters and their acolytes known as the Synod. They have taken up the duty of providing the tools and resources that set forth the foundation of the Sanguinarium itself. Initiation is a major aspect of the Quest for Immortality, each level of initiation requires the individual to solve a Mystery. These Mysteries are spiritual and philosophical equations which are used to bring teachings into the sphere of understanding and then to a point where they produce individual results. The Seeker is an individual who has just begun their awakening and is actively seeking out those of our number through a genuine curiosity of his or her Family. This is the first step of individual Zhep’r. These initiations can either be done as on a solitary level or through formal initiation in the Ordo Strigoi Vii, a correspondence order and outer court of the Synod. The Initiate (the Mystery of Jahira) has chosen to explore and test themselves through initial exploration of the elementary Strigoi Vii Mysteries. Their approach begins in the sensory reality through a pragmatic, materialistic and objective approach, thus building a foundation to explore the deeper mysteries. The Witch and Templar (the Mystery of Calmae) has validated the reality of the level of the subtle reality known as the Ether and validated the reality of the Art of Communion. They apply and practice Strigoi Vii mysteries as a core part of their life. The Adept (the Mystery of Kharrus) has come to mastery of completing the circuit of Communion and personally experienced and communed with the Strigoi Morte, our disembodied ascended ancestors who have defeated the Second Death. The Inner Mysteries are reserved for the initiated Magisters of the Synod, initiation is thus by invite and appointment only to qualified adepts. Throughout the balance of Equilibrium we find that we are often drawn to characteristics of the Egragores and aspects of Elorath as a source of power. Upon becoming the Second Mystery of Calmae many of us are drawn to focus on a road of the Egragores of the Triumvirate. Mradu is the noble warrior and guardian, Kitra is our councilor and weaver and Ramkht is our visionary and priest. All Strigoi Vii can work with the three Egragores, however most usually are more attuned to one over the others. Some unique individuals are attuned to two or all three, while some do not have a patron or attunement to any. Within the Equilibrium there is the duality of the male and female aspects of 8

the Self, Kalistree and Mithu. Kalistree is the feminine Dragon Goddess and Mithu is the Dragon God, the body we wear often reveals the frequency in which we are attuned. Some of the qualities which aid in help identifying and define a Prospectii Strigoi Vii include. Each seeker is a unique experience and there are certain qualities which distinguish a Strigoi Vii seeker from other Sanguinarium or vampyre families. • Realists in that vampyrism is more than just a fashion statement. From the mundane of Vampyrism do not turn into bats or mist, do not physically live forever, have super human strength and exist as real human beings who seek spiritual evolution. • Ambition and realizing the world is not an easy place and willing to challenge things in your life. You must realize that you are your own being and if you want to get things done in this world you have to do many of them yourself. • Individual, you are not a follower, sheep or seeking membership to a vampyre fan club for gratification or just looking for something to belong to. You are seeking affiliation with the Strigoi Vii for self growth and to achieve the Zhep’r individually and as a collective. • Acknowledge your talents and skills in both the dayside and nightside. • A sense of wonder and that their is more for you in this world. • Magickal ability, no fear of the occult and a skill at ritual and energy work. Many Strigoi Vii are encouraged to be powerful and skilled magicians, members of various the Left hand paths and organizations (Santeria, Buddhism, Gnostic Christianity, paganism, Setian, Tantric workings, etc.). • Support of the Family. We want people who are dedicated and loyal to the Family with a dedication and love of their heritage. Who want to see the success of the Family and put it first amongst all other vampyric or occult organizations. • Humbleness & Patience. You have to understand and be willing to make the investment in the family as we are making in you. It will take time before you formally get initiated and if it does not work out there is a reason. Even if you are an “elder” in another family we respect those willing to take the necessary steps to like everyone else to join the family. Time tells all and we respect ambition to get involved, but there is more than knowledge and ambition to becoming Strigoi Vii.
• Seeking one’s Dragon Within (their higher self, archangel, etc.). Giving a vision of
what one’s ultimate state of existence is and realizing that pursuit of this state is never 9

completed and the journey is the experience. Basically striving for perfection. • Willingness to learn and educate oneself and contribute to the Family with your knowledge base at all levels. • Business sense. Understand we all have to eat and pay our dayside bills. The Strigoi Vii and the Sanguinarium is not a place for freeloaders and traditional psychic vampires or people who sap others. • Love of aesthetics. Within ritual or going out, all Strigoi Vii should be well presented and dressed. Also aesthetics are a powerful tool of communication and atmosphere in the scene and ritual. No one likes a poorly dressed vampyre. We are a decedent and fabulous group as well as serious about what and who we are. • Serious. We are looking for people who take vampyrism serious and are not interested in a seeing life as a role-playing game. Strigoi Vii are students of the world and wish to explore every aspect of this gift and opportunity we call life. • A healthy ego. We do not want people who are ego-manics, but have a healthy ego or realize they have a big one and are willing to work on it. • A good sense of humor. The ability to laugh at things. • The ability to face and acknowledge your fears, problems, prejudices and forgive honest mistakes. We do not want guilt ridden people who hold on to things and cannot move on. • A willingness to share with others what you have found, in the right place and time and to be silent when it is not the right place and time.

The etheric body is absolutely tied to the physical body. and the ka of Egyptian mythology are simply names for the etheric layer of the body. Heavily guided and affected by the phases of the moon.

Spirit simply exists. which is purely intangible and can only be experienced. It is also from here that the astral body can be separate and travel through astral projection. becoming aware and learning to communicate with it is an essential experience and part of one’s Zhep’r. Since this is the case. Austin Spare called this the Kia. you are experiencing this layer and you can be “astral projecting” when you daydream. The pattern of the self extends outwards from this point and shapes the ethereal. and imagination reside. Like the etheric body there are two layers to the astral body. In Egyptian mythology the whole of the astral can be compared to the Ba.

When you think. the laws of time and space simply do not exist. and also thought of as the soul. as well as the corporeal layers of the body. Within the cabala this is often known as the Atsilut. In Strigoi Vii this is known as the Dragon Within. The upper astral is the realm of abstract consciousness. and in cabala this is identical to the Beria: the place of creation (upper astral) and the place of patterns (lower). The lower astral is the layer of concrete consciousness. this is a place where time and space do not exist being the final layer before the spiritual plane. the divine spark.

This combination of two perspectives beginning with being absolutely grounded. lays a place where the unexplained occurs and where our current perceptions. Beyond the Dayside realm of the reality of the five senses. Without this we cannot begin our becoming and truly be magickal beings. it is that simple. and it is the responsibility of the individual to pursue through action their own steps to coming into being. and then being unbelievably flexible in the matters of spirituality. The core and best relation. The most important element of Strigoi Vii flexibility in the Nightside can be compared to the elementary concept of the chaos magician using the phrase: “belief is a tool. Learning or being inspired by Strigoi Vii is enough.” When vampyres find themselves overwhelmed with the materialistic minded normality of the Maiiah. The Council for Secular Humanism. materialism. they can find equilibrium in the more solid and rational Dayside. In contrast. the Synod seeks to collect enough feedback from the community to contribute it to the Zhep’r of Elorath and all individuals involved. then you are not of the Blood. quite the intriguing organization. do not force yourself. Strigoi Vii seek to move above and beyond the standard concepts of humanity on both Dayside and Nightside perspectives. Like the spiritual side of Strigoi Vii. whether religious.

If it does not feel natural.
growth. A concern for this life and a commitment to making it meaningful through better understanding of ourselves. rather to always compete with ourselves over with others. No Strigoi Vii is happy with mediocrity. We seek to be better artists. Commitment to the use of critical reason. For the Nightside Zhep’r is a strong spiritual quest of improvement. increase our knowledge of history. judging them on their ability to enhance human well-being and individual responsibility. in seeking solutions to human problems and answers to important human questions. our history. A search for viable individual. good will. an open marketplace of ideas. magick. If the concepts of secular humanism are not introduced or challenged into the collective of Elorath then there will be no Zhep’r or foundation. we seek to become mentally sound and at peace with ourselves. factual evidence. essentially they are the same word. The Individualist Strigoi Vii are staunch individualists in that we must validate everything for ourselves through personal experience over taking the judgments and opinions of others or in laymen’s terms: “I will believe it when I see it. become more financially stable. our intellectual and artistic achievements. and tolerance. This must be done within reason. not to steal from or abuse those we care for. A primary concern with fulfillment. music and art. the hunger to spirituality and ethically evolve is always there. Dayside Zhep’r is that consistent move to evolve. A constant search for objective truth.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira political or social. A conviction that with reason. Spelled ‘Xeper’ by the Temple of Set and ‘Kheper’ by the members of the Kheprian tradition.” 27 . with the understanding that new knowledge and experience constantly alter our imperfect perception of it. thus becoming a better person always seeking to expand our horizons. finding balance in Twilight and awakening with union of ourselves with the Dragon (higher self) to achieve and maintain immortality. progress can be made in building a better world for ourselves and our children. In addition. transform and progress in all aspects of our lives. social and political principles of ethical conduct. The Dayside zhep’r strives to improve the perceptions of reality for the Strigoi Vii and establish a solid foundation in the Dayside world of the Maiiah. must be weighed and tested by each individual and not simply accepted on faith. and scientific methods of inquiry. and creativity for both the individual and humankind in general. rather than faith and mysticism. and the outlooks of those who differ from us. Dayside Zhep’r The very word ‘Zhep’r’ comes from the ancient Egyptian word that means “to become” and is the very core of both the Dayside and Nightside experiences of the Strigoi Vii.
the resources to create. not blind agreement. one is “As long as your actions do not interfere with my own agenda in life. we will respect others through attempting to have an understanding of their viewpoint. thus according to tradition. not just simply accepted upon faith. as we grow in Zhep’r. being sensible hedonists. “I see where you are coming from. we take action to mend the offense to the other individual. and those who work toward something valuable deserve to be appropriately compensated. good 28 . This is a constant quest for a greater objective truth. This conviction extends even to the understanding that when we were children we saw the world in one way. Because our Zhep’r has grown. which is our foundation here in the Maiiah. Keeping these standpoints will result in empowerment as an individual over engaging in energy wasting conflicts. our perceptions have changed. religions and political viewpoints must be weighed and tested by each individual. Over raw faith and mysticism. We take the concept of compassion towards those of faith. do as you will. Our first commitment is compassion for ourselves. does not have absolute value.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira On Requests Strigoi Vii will never place a demand upon another of the Blood. gain more experiences and find new knowledge. our imperfect perceptions transform in each one of us. with a very objective few of a socially Darwinist world. Strigoi Vii are about gaining pleasure within the Maiiah. Strigoi Vii adhere to two very powerful statements. Strigoi Vii will demand for their own perception of reality that critical reason. even though we may not agree. This concept has been mostly lost or forgotten amongst Vampyres and should even exist between an elder and seeker. We love pleasures such as nice cars. having a quality place to live. Faith implies doubt and complete lack of evidence and reason. We stand at the point of mastery.” The second is “we must just agree to disagree”. and Carl Jung. experience and knowledge. we are not without great compassion. Like the Gnostics who seek spiritual knowledge (better known as Gnosis) all Strigoi Vii seek evidence for themselves as an individual in all things which are intangible. Compassion Even though dayside Strigoi Vii philosophies may seem like the concepts of Nietzsche. scientific methods of inquiry and factual evidence be tried and employed first. however I do not agree. Secular Humanism. but we see it differently now as adults. only a request can be made. ideologies. then freeze and make an apology. Issues of Faith Natural Strigoi Vii must have the conviction and personal strength to see that dogmas.” Materialism Anything for free is not worth paying for. When we offend someone we do not sulk. However. traditions. Free will of the individual is the most important of all ethics. We must accept the world of ideas and tolerate with respect those who may not agree with us.
Strigoi Vii enjoy and use the psychodrama of theatrical ritual. do not selfishly abuse. We might not agree with the law. Responsibility Strigoi Vii embrace the concept of respecting the Dayside laws of each community and culture. However where this gets sticky is when individuals are taken advantage of. come closer to the Dragon and enter the Nightside of reality in a structured manner allowing for spontaneous communion with the Strigoi Morte. and it marks a beginning and an ending to the action of entering the Nightside. fully awaken. people have the right to accept it or go somewhere else.

When you provide a service or product. an experiment to experience more. wisdom and common sense. When you are in debt you will always have that weight upon your shoulders and soul. We see obstacles and failure as challenges to be overcome and as ways to increase our own Zhep’r. we must remember that we exist in the real world.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira food. everyone is more confident. For the individual ritual is rehearsal. Group ritual reinforces teamwork amongst individuals and unites us in common goals and agendas. but we MUST respect it for it is the Will of the Ancients. not the ultimate goal in itself. and then always act with logic. Theatrical drama in ritual can also be an extremely powerful tool that assists in raisin and amplifying energy since it can be used as a visual focus. very much like some cult mentalities found among the fundamentalists with people giving over millions of dollars to televangelists. and to provide the best for our children and for ourselves. so is any form of business.one Dayside. try and try again. and two the Nightside which is the suspension of belief in order to more effectively break down the Maiiah. Strigoi Vii rituals take place on two levels -. Money is energy and as any interaction is an exchange of energy. the theatrical psychodrama. Money is a tool to reach goals and obtains supplies to reach it. Ritual From a Dayside perspective. Failure & Loss From the perspective of the Strigoi Vii failure is not a loss. Thomas Edison took over 10.. Do not allow others to abuse you. We support a Vampyric economy and have no shame in making money upon playing. Educate yourself about risky behaviors. When you walk down the street and you have money in your pocket. and that you alone are responsible for your decisions.up the Glamour.

No Strigoi Vii should ever commit any illegal act which will bring unwanted and unhealthy attention to the Family.
To the mundane we are defined as a religion and using this perspective is a tool to protect our Mysteries. It is the duty of all Strigoi Vii to seek out our own individual paths. Make sure you keep within the Law of Secrets. a tool which the Ancients have implanted amongst humanity to cultivate diversity of thought. magickal. which as explored earlier. talented. treat them with utmost care. When crossed with an unawakened Strigoi Vii. Youth is a time of contemplation. philosophy. Many of the concepts we work with are simply not suitable for children. in which children should build a strong Dayside foundation. intelligent. or spiritual rehearsals such as Wicca or other commonly accepted systems. and support our brethren in doing the same.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira Minors Some of us feel the first signs of Awakening at an early age. Those seekers under the age of majority should be encouraged to establish their Dayside on their own through means of martial arts. We are all parts of the spiritual organism that is Elorath. Religion The Strigoi Vii is considered a spiritual and philosophical meta-paradigm. NEVER force someone into following a given path. is based on doubt and faith. ambitious and unique. where each of our unique energies contribute to its advancement. We must acknowledge and celebrate our individuality. show support. spiritual. however the risks of allowing minors to participate the community are too great. not a religion. if they feel the ‘calling’ they will come. Also make sure you keep within the standards of what a Strigoi Vii seeker should be: beautiful. not exposing them to things that they are not prepared to learn. Family All Strigoi Vii are of the same great spiritual Family known as the Sanguinarium. make your own opinion based on rational thought. and offer to help them find a mentor to guide them. Under no circumstances allow minors to attend Quabal. be initiated into an Order of any kind. Involving minors in Strigoi Vii draws unwanted attention from the mundane world and presents the wrong impression of whom and what we are. even if the beacon is burning brightly. With the birth of the Fifth Aeon of Humanity nearing we consider religion an obsolete concept. or gain access to any of our Inner Strigoi Vii Mysteries. as well as our shared history and traditions. let them ask questions of their nature and how to develop it. Do not force them. Most religions are based on belief. 30 . Is magickal theory a religion? Think and validate for yourself. Dealing with minors is risky for everyone and can bring greatly unwanted consequences.

Give respect to those who have earned it. but a true leader will prove themselves through dedication. Within individualism free will of ourselves and others is held as the primary objective and virtue. Anyone can claim a title. We seek to resurrect and express the empowering traditions of long lost eras. even to your deepest enemy. Confront those who have offended you directly and respectfully. while consistently adapting them for modern times. Look to them as examples and inspirations. not dictators.

Look upon your Magisters as leaders and guides. unless it is in self defense. business. The Life of a Social Darwinist The concept of the Darwinist is that only the strong survive to cull and weed out the week. the time of virgin purity and self sacrifice that was a part of the Christian æon is showing signs of coming to an end. making the entirety of a species stronger so that it may survive and thrive. there can be no true measure of the strong and powerful. we are talking about reality. We are not talking about harming or killing any human or animal. chivalry and loyalty are benchmarks of Strigoi Vii Dayside philosophy. Always be civil. your person and the members of your family. and accomplishments. With Strigoi Vii embracing the coming of the fifth æon and the Age of Aquarius. Also know that it is your right to protect your territory. respect their traditions and laws and never enter without being invited.

Some within and outside of traditional BDSM or fetish circles may see passive roles as demeaning. Malicious. Strigoi Vii. Strigoi Vii view things more in terms of passive and active roles that work in agreement. one of which is that of sensual experiences and pleasures of the flesh. while others will not find these activities arousing or entertaining. It is the duty of the active partner to guide any play or activities after a logical negotiation on the needs. role-playing and even some taking and willingly accepting commands. The passive role is simply the receptor that has the ultimate decision to deny or accept anything which they feel is beyond their limits. Many Strigoi Vii enjoy fetishes. Fool me three times… well there won’t be a third time. There is an exception however… When one takes risks and the agenda fails due to circumstances outside of one’s control: that is simply a risk. egocentric behavior will not be tolerated by a Strigoi Vii. Strigoi Vii do not see things the same way as mundane fetishists often do -. since many Kitra are often now in a more active role.

However we can surely acknowledge that there are forces at work in this universe which are greater than our own understanding.

Or…through Spiritual immortality. or that we should not restrict our highly passionate natures to the standard human concept of relations. the whole self. They become priests of those egregores and encourage their children to follow in the same traditions to feed each egregore in suit. This entity in modern magickal theory is often known as an Egregore. How we feel physically affects all other layers of the Self. Egregores can also be the focus towards a symbol or icon that is charged reacting through those who acknowledge it. Why do people want to become famous? Or through having children and naming them in your honor. Gods and Deities Since Dayside Strigoi Vii expect tangible proof and evidence for verification for the individual. or that there are supernatural higher beings who control our destinies. the Strigoi Vii from the Dayside philosophy sees that humans created gods as explanations of these or a variety of 33 . Many times we feel we have met lovers of previous lives but have little time in this incarnation to waste. When a child behaves all year long and leaves an offering of cookies out for Santa or a tooth under their pillow for a quarter from the Tooth Fairy they are worshipping and thus charging that egregore. The mundane human has at this point very little tangible evidence in the world to prove the existence of an ultimate intelligence that created our reality. we from the Dayside perspective see Gods and Deities first as collective consciousnesses made up of the common actions of a group of humans who feed them. keep your body in absolutely the best shape and seek to avoid the effects of aging. lifespan and destiny. Take care to keep things in moderation.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira The concept of polyamory. The Strigoi Vii see deities as a child would see the Tooth Fairy or Santa Claus as gods. and as such they may be tapped as a source of energy. Immortality The center of the individual should begin with physical health and the body. Then they Awaken. Immortality on the Dayside is through being remembered through others. we do not have choices. These forms of lifestyle require specific strengths and mental freedoms to function properly.

That is a lasting impression or impact on this world. some however can be influences. while many are simply beyoond our control. This is the very thing that mundane humans do when calling upon gods and deities. Or through making a piece of art and letting others love it (such as D’Drennan’s ankh). see the entity for what it is: a collective social construct in culture. Survival of the Self is the highest Law.
and it is recommended to incorporate that communication into our aesthetics by dressing with elegance and distinction. when dressed in a manner which demands respect you will gain the ear of the mundane. simply to enhance their personal Glamour. We strive to be more in all our aspects. and Santa Claus are just what they are. while remaining true to your nature and tastes. as opposed to actual sentient beings that one can have a chat with or share a beer with at the local pub. or that somehow we owe them something. Asarai often have significant mental problems. Aesthetics are also powerful in ritual. Strigoi Vii will see gods as tools and sources of will power. Aesthetics Image speaks as much as actions and words do. Asarai come from within and without the Sanguinarium. The asarai are a diverse bunch. However the elder may only dress in such fashion on occasion or within sanctum. and not be overwhelmed by the image we wish to portray. If these psychic vampires manage to get their claws into us we might not even understand why we feel indebted or responsible for them. the same applies in our community. Aesthetics are power through Glamour of human nature! Why have so many in our Family forgotten this simple idea? The true Strigoi Vii will employ this principle!

The point here is people will listen. a serious lack of confidence seeking to make us feel guilty. When the next generation of mundane humans takes the egregores to the next level forgetting that the deity is a social construct. sometimes even more than the fundamentalist movements of many major real world religions. the Tooth Fairy. who according to esoteric tradition are known as psychic vampires. we must understand how to use them first as a focus and tool. A fledgling Vampyre may wear gothic clothing expected by the mundane human of a vampire all the time.

Often they are the over-willing donor. the housewife playing the role of the elder and defender of the community. We commend their efforts to attempt to define our nature. seeking “advice” on how to deal with their affliction or “energy deficiency”. and those so obsessed with “peace and unity” of a “community” that they forget their own Zhep’r or the equivalent. Some are those unawakened who do not see their own natures or their emotional and unconscious attacks. and/or developed sympathetic vampyrism since they were fed upon too deeply over a prolonged time. Traditionally. or a reaction. a common example of a psychic vampire in occult lore is a person who creates melodrama. however we do not agree with the need to re-define a word which has been charged and defined for decades. Another definition is that they are like the miserable person lying in an elderly home who no nurse would wish to aid. Particularly dangerous asarai are those who have come into contact with a Strigoi Vii.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira masquerade as one of us.

We danced in aesthetics. from the popular association of erudition with occult practices: 1 : a magic spell <the girls appeared to be under a glamour -. legend. while others may just see it as a natural human reaction to our existence. Most asarai and psychic vampires simply have not gone beyond a theory and have no true results in practice. This has caused them to resent the concept of the Great Glamour. we are often bound to those needs while incarnated. These individuals see vampyrism in theory and as an explanation for an energy deficiency. or as having psychological issues which are no threat in reality since they sit behind the shield of a computer screen. alteration of English grammar.

Then mythology slowly was born all over the world in the fears and folklore of the ancient humans. they have many uses including functioning as a costume piece. Before the Sanguinarium and the Internet I met more psy’s. the Glamour of vampires through folklore eventually evolved into expressions such as literature. He then mentioned today those very same people in 2005 would come up to him and be intoxicated.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira The Glamour has been built up over the centuries even before the mass incarnations of the Strigoi Vii began. subways and television increased the Glamour even if for a short time by introducing our image to the world. which is happening. Let me give some examples of the more successful applications and manifestations of the Great Glamour. and a way of identifying others who are drawn to the vampyre archetype of themselves in the real world. he was an Elder and we laughed as he got his fangs at the BANK in 1996 before the second Vampyre Ball.

Such energies can be quite tainted with impure qualities or can harm the individual. which is in taking the excess prana which is radiated from the ethic body that lies above the skin is fair game. for example between members of different roads and thus are “cycling” this energy between each other. In this article we explore the Strigoi Vii perspective of communion. since it interacts however is not apart of the Maiiah's sensory reality. This metabolism can be increased through intent or naturally apart of an individual's ethereal body. however if you wish for another perspective and expanded listing of techniques I highly suggest you read Michelle Belanger of House Kheperu’s book the Psychic Vampire Codex by Sam Weiser / RedWheel Publishing. Following Strigoi Vii communion system and ethics results in the difference between these two states. discipline. aura and pontus. Within Strigoi Vii we define the ethereal as the energy body that includes the chakhras. Strigoi Vii never make communion with those who are physically or mentally ill. Employment of these teachings is also what differentiates a Strigoi Vii from the fashion vampyres and a major part of the zhep'r and metamorphosis which we seek to awaken too. Within an ethical framework of communion.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira COMMUNION Communion is the system of acquiring the excess life-force generated by a human’s etheric body. Strigoi Vii have honor and respect for their vessels and those who give us their energy. Being able to experience and apply communion efficiently and intentionally is a central part of the Strigoi Vii awakening. Surface communion. Vampyres never feed from each other. while the astral body is the shapeless consciousness that includes dreams. Prana is the sanskrit word for lifeforce and is goes by many names including chi. It is essential to realize that most esoteric systems confuse the concept of the ethereal portion of the self with the astral or collectively label it the astral. Overall communion takes effort. However making communion on a deeper level of the etheric body. by penetrating beyond the aura is considered a violation of the self and can be equated to a form of vampyric rape. Additionally making communion with other awakened beings. they exchange energies. ki or akasha and is contained in the etherical (energy portion) of the subtle body. Collectively these are known within Strigoi Vii as the subtle body. emotions and thoughts. All living beings exchange pranic energy. especially other Strigoi Vii on a deep level without their permission is simply unethical and a form of theft. direction and focus to achieve higher and more developed states and just being tied to the standard interpretation of a parasitic or psychic vampire.
There are also the psychological risks including the significance and metaphor of blood in our culture. as well as two levels which include surface and deep.

The quality and empowerment of the energy can be determined by the mood of the crowd. long lasting and developed relationships between several vessels is socially nearly impossible. the corporeal health risks such as STDs. possessive and obsessive to the Strigoi Vii and the result can drain the vessel to a point where they manifest the traits of sympathetic vampyrism. which is not something you want to do to someone you care about. The first thing required to make proper communion is that the ethereal body must interact with a source of prana. energy work or such practices as prana games and tantric techniques. as well as the attachment such as potent and direct dose of prana in physical form can imbue. The major risk of this form of communion is obvious. a Strigoi Vii needs a variety of frequencies of energy and larger doses than one individual can generate. such as in large crowds. Simply put. maintaining healthy. however they should be aware that any source that is easily tapped and can run dry quickly.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira The drinking of blood or “sanguine communion” is highly discouraged. rallies. Commonly this happens on a deeper level and at all times all parties involved are fully contenting. 40 . Mal’occhios and visual. cities. This creates such strong links between the vampyre and their vessel that are nearly impossible to break. amusement parks. There are many different types of communion which include unconscious. malls. tactile. since such behavior can be highly risky and a truly awakened and trained Strigoi Vii has many other options. ambient. tantric. concert. The vessel can become deeply attached. For example making ambient communion at a funeral or a protest will not be as satisfying as that of a nightclub. All of these require contact between the etheric energy bodies of the Strigoi Vii and the vessel. Some vamps may feed from a spouse . This is most easily done through ambient energies which have been released from the etheric bodies of humans. No one human can satisfy the spiritual hunger which a Strigoi Vii has developed or is natural to them. Hepatitis and syphilis. thus causing harm to their donor.and don't want to feed off of others.

Now that we have these realities layed and ethics layed out. Please note it is essential to realize and to state to the donor is being drained and may not be able to 'refill' their source at the demand of the vampyre's hunger. airports.
41 . There are several steps to achieving communion this way. Another technique of ambient feeding and even Mal’occhios is costume and aesthetics. this includes mainstream concept of psychic vampires or what is explained in Dion Fortune's book Psychic Self Defense or in Anton LeVay's the Satanic Bible section “Not all vampires drink blood”. mal'occhio.

Feel like you are inhaling smoke and visualize the pranic energy coming into your ethereal body. Within this article we are going to discuss the concept of “ambient communion” which is the first level beyond the chaotic and unconfocused unconscious communion. Ambient energy is the easiest to digest since it is already mostly refined and can vary on intensity on the emotions and activity of the group excreting it. there is of course several different types of communion which include unconscious. Once contact is achieved the energy field must be penetrated. The more unique and creative we with our appearance. Unconscious communion can also be done online without any results from those who have no proper experience. tantric and contagion. deep and surface. thus allowing us the opportunity to draw. thus in a way all beings can be seen as vampyric. Each individual will have their preferences and some communions may be more efficient than others. Some beings simply require more energy and subconsciously take actions to fulfill their needs. just unique in such a way that people will notice you. Drawing energy in is like breathing in vapors and even that visualization and or actually breathing in may assist in training yourself. the cinema or even amusement parks or large cities. humans will notice and automatically make contact. Large pools of pranic energy can be compared to a sauna or a clowd and can be collected by moving into this clowd or making ethereal contact with it. Strigoi Vii through the system of communion can move beyond this unconscious state into a highly developed and focused format. public speeches. These psychic vampires we of the Strigoi Vii call “asari”. gaining powerful results with maintaining our dignity and ethical structures. Ambient prana surrounds us and is the surface energies which are “sweated off” humans and mostly manifested from and around large gatherings such as concerts. Many of us can feel the energy like being on a dance floor or if we have had the experience of being on stage in a theatrical performance or being in a band or as a singer. almost like grabbing the energy. Rock stars and actors are prime examples of standard humans who have become addicted to the crowd focusing on them and directing the energy to them for a period of time. You need not be the most beautiful individual or the best dressed. Since the ethereal body echo’s and emulates the corporeal body in the Maiiah simply physically putting your hands or part of your body in or near the cloud will allow you to effectively make contact. much like a fishing lure. Flexing your rectum muscles has also proven to be a way of anchoring and creating more of a draw inward. first one must make contact. zhep'r or training. This is why so many Strigoi Vii are performers or vocalists and gain pleasure from live audiences.
The senses in the maiiah will be more intense. Tantric communion is very much like the incubus or succubus of myth and requires sexual contact. some attribute this experience to opening your “vampyre eyes”. tantric communion and sealing the energies you have collected. You will be more centered. This system is similar to the concept of laying on hands and employs many of the same techniques as found in systems such as reiki. Tactile communion requires physical contact. Contagion communion focuses on breaking down the illusion of distance and space between yourself and the vessel by using a piece of maiiah such as hair. which results in direct contact with the vessel's ethereal body.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira Shielding is the process of protecting oneself from hostile or negative energies. Adept communion is the visual technique of Mal’occhios and requires even more discipline and training to achieve properly. Between two Strigoi Vii tantric techniques are excellent for cycling and vortexing energy to amplify and purify it. cycling energy between those who focus on roads. Experiencing successful communion will result in several tangible and experiencible results most of which is a calming effect. thus being able to perform meditation more effectively. equalized and relaxed. especially uniting the ethereal bodies in a way that one can actually teach techniques effectively. Learning how to harness this energy is a skill known to the dedicant level of Strigoi Vii and moves beyond a simple tactile contact. with an enhanced ability to perform astral projection. You will notice that the taste of food is richer and smells will become much more intense. Things that pass through the body such as urine or fecies will not work since they are not processed as deeply through the corporeal body in the maiiah. Deep communion requires meditation and an expanded ability to hold large amounts of prana at any one time. On the astral side your dreams will become more vivid and intense with a better recollection when awake. We will deal with this later since it is common sense when making ambient communion whether the energy is safe by the mood and quality of the crowd projecting it. Other awakened will however be able to notice your energy signature not being completely your own. More advanced techniques of communion are explored in Liber Bellah which include tactical communion which has many similarities to the systems found in reiki. When a human is having sex there is an intense charge especially during orgasm and amplification of prana. colors will be brighter and your vision will be sharper and things will be more in focus. a finger nail or flesh as a conduit that is linked to the vessel since it was grown from their body. Once you have drawn the energy in hold your breath for a short period of time for the newly acquired quantities of pranic energy to merge with your own ethereal body. with more vigor. Tacticle communion is covered in Liber Bellah. 42 . These harmful energies could come from negative emotions emitted from the astral bodies of the humans carried within the prana. however the main benefit of this is the Strigoi Morte will be more likely to pay attention to you when in Sanguine Mass. while filtering is the process of separating the good energies from the negative.
43 . by attracting and making communion with the Strigoi Morte we can exchange prana for refinded energies and attune ourselves to the otherside more effectively. this requires specific training and is covered in Liber Calmae and must be mastered to become a Strigoi Vii adeptus. With learning these skills and techniques one's zhep'r increases and can make the next step of making direct communion with the subtle reality.Sanguinomicon: Liber Jahira Mal'acchio is the most advanced form of communion which is expressed in the outer teachings and requires visual contact between the Strigoi Vii and their vessel. Once the individual has mastered Contagion this is the next step. However mastery of these outer teachings is essential for the Strigoi Vii to have a foundation within these states. The ultimate agenda of mastering these outer forms of communion is communion with the Strigoi Morte in sanguine mass. Here extending of tendrils of the etheric body move out to siphoned energy from the vessel. Additionally beyond these outer techniques Strigoi Vii who move to the Inner teachings will prepared to learn how to make communion with humans in dreamstates and through astral projection.

If initiated into a road it is proper to be dressed according to the role you are taking. Like secret societies such as the Freemasons or most cultures the Strigoi Vii maintain their own traditions and customs of interaction. The greeting Strigoi Vii should take the right hand of the individual they are greeting. Jahira should be familiar with the following forms of etiquette for both in person and online interactions within the Sanguinarium sanctums and the Nightside.

Best results are achieved by performing this ritual in a group at least once a month and on a solitaire level about once a week. The New Moon as well is a powerful time since the moon casts no light which will disturb the breaking down of the WBW. 6 feet long and 3 feet wide covered with a black cloth is best. However group rituals are also performed in order to generate a greater and more ample offering to the Strigoi Morte. Normally a sturdy table of 3 or 4 feet high. thus amplifying the offering through grounding. thus obtaining better results. 54 . The altar should be facing the west and have enough room for all of the tools of ritual to lie within easy reach of the presiding members.

These have little effect on dispersing the manifestation of ethereal structures. Often used in the occult and magick communities for scrying. This should be held by the presiding priest of the ritual. Speculum This is a black mirror is the most important element of Strigoi Vii ritual. especially for those who are not awakened enough yet to see beyond the Maiiah. Many individuals decorate and make their wants through customization and artistic endeavors to better attune them. For rituals which are to take place outdoors. since there is as little light as possible. 55 . the dim red lights as used in photography studios for developing film. A sword can also be used for group rituals especially in which the Mradu role is being employed. Chalice In Strigoi Vii ritual the chalice or goblet represents the container of the blood of both the immortal bond of the Family and the life-force which is the offering to the Strigoi Morte and to sate the spiritual hunger of the Dragon. This is usually put at eye level on the west wall of the ritual chamber or on the floor as if a well in the middle of all participants. the Speculum is the portal to the subtle reality (Rakasha) and point of mental visualization.

Dress Just as the chamber should be full of atmosphere and ambiance so too it is important for the celebrants be properly attired for ritual.

Suggested live music can include drums. This can also be used to burn parchment sigils for requests from our Dragons.

Cauldron The cauldron should be set on the altar or put about waist level and should be the container for putting out candles or incense. For some workings clothing psychologically is limiting as well as impedes the flow of prana. Most Strigoi Vii rituals such as the Sanguine Mass and Ascensions are most often done with theatrical masks.
