and The Order of the
Review of pages 462 to 539
According to ancient Egyptian
thought man is made up of two parts: the Ka (soul/spirit) and the Ba
(body). The mythology of the Phoenix parallels the right of an Adept in
occult order initiation. In that order an Adept Minor is in the condition
of “man (ba) to ascended man (ka).” In other words a man’s flesh is still
in control of his soul/spirit (baka) but he is aware of his soul/spirit as
it begins to awaken. As an Adept Minor evolves into an Adept Major his
condition changes to that of “ascended man(ka) WITH man (ba)” wherein
ascended man is equal with the flesh (ka=ba). As an Adept Major evolves
into an Adept Exempt his condition evolves into “ascended man (ka) in
control of man (ba)” where his ascended man is in control of the flesh
In effect, the rising of the phoenix
is the death, resurrection and ascension of man to god.
The Ritual of the Middle Pillar:
This ritual accomplished the drawing down of the energy of the universe into
man’s sephriah. The chant says, among other lines, “Soul Osiris slain and
risen” and in the ritual when you manifest Osiris as risen it is the same
symbol as ascended man. A well-known euphemism for Osiris is the Phoenix.
The “Order of the Phoenix” could be
a parallel to an Inner Order of an Occult organization. ("Peter"

and Harry. P. 531.
The connection described here
happens in psychic war. Spirit exchange. When two individuals are involved
in a psychic battle and neither dies bits and pieces of the spirits of both
of them exchange. Eastern mysticism calls this an exchange of energy at the
chakra level. Hermetic magicians exchange this energy at doth.(A vertical

Harry’s dream changes and takes on a new form. He becomes a presence inside
the body of a snake and he sees through the snake’s eyes to watch the attack

• Voldemort morphs into a snake –
transmutation in occult terms. South American magic refers to this as a
nagual – the taking on and sharing the life of an animal form. (A War
of Witches. Timothy J. Knab, Ph.D, Harper Collins, Publishers, 1993.)
• Harry: bilocation. He’s in two
places at one time. The physical part of him (ba) was in bed asleep. The
part of him connected to Voldemort (ka) experienced what Voldemort was doing
when he attacked Weasley. Harry experienced this attack in his physical

a “branch of magic that seals the mind against magical intrusion and
This is identical to the Sign of
Hypocrates. You learn this sign when you learn astral travel so that
you cannot be attacked. Hypocrates was under attack by Set and when Set
attacked Hypocrates turned himself, astrally, into stone so that he could
not be attacked. The attacker cannot get through the barrier.
Legilimency, page 531. “those who
have mastered Legilimency are able under certain conditions to delve into
the minds of their victims and to interpret their feelings correctly… Time
and space matter in magic. Eye contact is often essential to legilimency.:”
There are two parts to this in
• One part of this is aura reading.
If you can read someone’s aura or the ka of that person you know what is
going on inside that person. Eye contact is necessary to read someone’s
aura. Eyes mirror the soul.
• The other part is the fact that
occultists can hear what people broadcast spiritually much the same way that
if we could tune into certain frequency we could hear radio signals in our

occultists because everything has to be done in the NOW. You can’t change
the past or read far into the future so everything must be sown in the

the next page when Harry is instructed to focus and discipline his mind.
This is the first law of the Tablet
of the True Seeker (Code of Survival in the system of Hermetic Magick):
purge love and hate. Love blindly inclines one to error and hate repels one
from the truth.

Snape is teaching Harry how to
prevent psychic attack. He is also teaching Harry to take his ascended man

emotion can only be controlled from the soul/spirit.
