This night’s ritual will be an investigation into sensing the polarities and magnetism of the 8 directions in Space. We will invoke Kaal Bhairav in his eight forms as we create a circular ritual of spinning force. Kaal Bhairav is known to have 8 forms, each of which rules 1 of the 8 directions. The octagonal practice of honouring the 8 directions is a Chakra-based practice of turning around and tuning into the 8 forces and forms of Kaal Bhairav.
Bhairav is the junction of Time, he is the mystery hidden in the timeless state of awareness. Time is present in all directions, by becoming aware of this we might come to step into timelessness. This ritual night of the half descending moon will be a study of the effect of each direction and the forces of time that we project into the chakra of our lives that ever surrounds us. This is the chakra of our lives that we spin within, and which spins around us.
When we take back the projections upon time then Bhairav approaches us as the timeless one. Timelessness is a fearful state that stands outside the boundaries of our constructions, just as Kaal Bhairav himself is a frightening force, it takes a courageous honesty to look at how we spend our time in the circles of our lives.
Kaal means both ‘time’ and ‘darkness’. That which is in the realm of the unseen is dark to our awareness. The unseen has great power but the confrontation with our conception of time and direction is needed to step into it. Kaal Bhairav lives outside of the realms of the known, the courage and wanderlust to pursue the unknown is the path of magic, a path that is open in all directions if we take the step. Siddhi means Magic – ‘Maha Kaal Siddhi’ is the great cry of the Tantrics and proclaims the Magic of the unknown.
This ritual will be a magical investigation into our sense of time and direction, those who seek direction or have lost direction are welcomed in finding their power. Those who are fascinated with polarity and magnetism will equally find a ritual that focuses upon the laws of force and exchange. A devotional ritual to open this 5 part series dedicated the lord of Time and Direction it will be.
