KT The Gathering

It’s been a few months now since I became the current custodian of KT, before her arrival ‘A Temple’ was prepared, this was formerly the family living room which had become somewhat boring and in need of new life anyway, so the space was devoted to KT. An Altar was made with offerings of perfumes, flowers, drums, rattles, and all manner of stuff which i felt KT may like and then the entire place was left to sit for three days and nights. Why Bother ? some may ask. Respect was the first intention, others before me had put a great deal of effort into KT and her birth so it seemed fitting to continue that effort but then i eventually met her. A small Golden troll with a large smiley face and an obvious love for getting things done.

Throughout her stay KT began to draw in the like minded, the first a Witch in America, who quickly joined us among the ranks of Xaos. Then the temple opened its doors to members and took on the name HKN, which consisted of newcomers to Chaos Magick. The cycle continued and KT began to meet more and more people until we eventually ended up at a Pagan Wedding where she took her place upon the Altar. I introduced the High Priestess to KT and explained who she was and where she was from. KT had in fact lead me to not one Witch but three ladies who all worked together, a happy bunch indeed and all rather talented. We drank until dawn, laughed much and before i knew it was making plans for a workshop whereby KT was going to be accompanied by more Dolls and Trolls created by this new group. In the next breath we were offered nine acres of land by a Shaman in Lincolnshire from which we could do the work outdoors among Nature. This may not have been so much by chance as KT and I had indulged in Trance, Dance, Shamanic Healing with my Clients and students. However, it was space i certainly needed and the Shaman wanted me to work the land with him in ceremonies and rites.

Now this being my first deliberate experience of working with an Egregore meant i was on new ground to begin with but KT was certainly making a difference to my world and sending it in the right direction to achieve personal and group goals. I also began to meet with and become involved among the KIA Community. Something I greatly enjoyed and found most useful. So the work continued, pushing the personal boundaries further until a magazine was created and launched with a Z Cluster member on board, the American Witch, some KIA Agents and old friends. The project took off and left most of us standing, with the first issue months ahead of our proposed launch. We had a string of female occultists / witches who all wanted to be on the front cover, some in very little clothing at all and a stream of articles and ideas. Again i had asked KT to assist with this and as always she delivered, in return she was placed in a huge box of chocolates, drinks and flowers to feed upon.

Everywhere i took KT she seemed to find new friends but our work was spinning fast around the eight colors of Magick. Starting with sex magick and works of passion, we quickly moved to red magick and attacks on those who wished to rule by avarice and indoctrinated ideaologies. During the wealth magick stage i gained a greater income and job offer while the thought magick aspect brought myself and a knowledgeable person from Z Cluster together. This all spun into a weird mash up of media magick and then i asked KT the most daunting question, “Can you show me the Black Spear?” This brought on an instant bout of depression, grief and a whole bunch of other shit i was not expecting but as soon as i relaised what was occurring, my Z Cluster Buddy introduced me to a Voodoo Priestess who specialised in Necromantic Rites and was highly skilled in all of the old African Arts. Ifa, Voodoo, Hoodoo, Palo etc.

This opened a new chapter in my life, the worship of my own ancestors, working with the dead, and now im at the stage of a serious study of Santa Muerte, the healer of deep seated grief. No wonder i felt so shit ! but having been involved in shamanism for some years, i knew to accept not fight such feelings.

On the Green front, the American Witch and I fell in love despite the Atlantic Ocean and somehow we seemed to be able to work despite the distance. We laid some plans to meet but as yet they have to wait, we suffered a little, dealt with the usual pains of love and just kept each other going via messages and astral work. When i look at KT and her influences in my personal sphere, she certainly delivered, working it all out for me so all i had to do was the work itself. Amazing little troll who i shall always adore and can never repay.

The Swiss Army Knife of Magick ! Xaos

Many newcomers to the chaosphere ask where should i begin or what should i do ? which i guess is a natural progression away from the paths of indoctrinated thinking with a healthy dose of concern. The usual try some sigil magick seems to sit well but i personally opted for a different approach, to use the Media as a tool and weapon against ‘The Media.’ Why not ? after all we are manipulated on a daily basis by TV, Radio broadcasts and a whole host of other stuff which we may not fully see or even hear yet such things seem to affect our emotions. After several friends showed their repulsion towards Religious based beheading and other atrocities being spawned by the media I wanted a means to fight back, to create change and offer up an alternative world view. By coincidence it was at this time i happened to meet a few faces from KIA.

The first aspect of Xaos i adopted was Digital Art and learning how to manipulate images by layering one on another and keep going until i had a complete new image from the existing. After a few sad attempts i realized that such a notion required a little visionary input from myself and so it was. The next step was to remove all aspects of self importance, Ego based ownership of what i was creating, the overcoming of self centered pride and the insecurity that someone may nick my work ! I asked myself what the hell was wrong with me and why i had i lost the ability to just be open and share in my creations. To circumnavigate this proved easy, just throw out an add on social media offering to work for free on the behalf of others and so it began.

Within weeks i was having to refuse any more requests as i was so busy and my time was being consumed for no pay but it no longer mattered. I was having fun, bringing a little joy to the life of others and gaining some valuable experience. This later lead to a KIA Agent placing some fascinating art before me and me being somewhat cheeky and asking “Hey can i play with this one.” The agent to my surprise replied “Sure.” This gave me a wonderful lift as i was now in a small collaboration to work with another artist. So where is all the Xaos in this you may ask ? maybe there is none as that i cannot honestly answer, my mind was in some weird state of overdrive and a myriad of messages were flying about the place between myself and other Magickal Practitioners. In short the whole nine yards was hectic, Chaotic and somewhat rather disorganized on my part yet it worked and damn well, so i kept rolling with the ideas and trying weirder ideas within my art. Sleepless nights and endless days produced some imagery i was happy with as were those i was working for, until the day i came to acknowledge i had a flair of my own which seemingly appeared out of nowhere. It was at this point i approached Anton about starting a KIA Node, something i had no experience in whatsoever. Between three or four Agents I gained a mass of wisdom and guidance which carried the whole project forward, after a couple of weeks KT arrived. Now i could be imagining this but it all seemed to stem from Art. From a desire to attack the system at a personal level simply because it felt right to do so, not just for myself but for others too.

Within a month or two, the entire operation was established with mentors, friends and fellow agents helping me to push through some limited growth of my own and expand beyond my usual hemisphere. I remember describing the experience as being in close proximity to ‘a gay person coming out of the closet,’ by that i mean it takes guts to show ones colors to a stagnant society which in all honesty hates the likes of KIA Agents but it did not matter. I was not alone, I was not branded as stupid but did pick up the odd comment about being mad or weird. One day someone replied to one of my comments with “o you know how nuts that sounds ?” to which i quickly replied, “It only sounds nuts due to your own lack of self education, your own shallow perception of something you have yet to grasp let alone try to understand.” What my friend was seeing may have been a mere fractal of something far greater but either way we laughed about the whole issue, I then sent her to Agent Anton for a quick walk through about Egregores and their benefit, especially one named KT. So from a small moment of anger, a fleeting glimpse of change and a desire to know brought about an entirely new aspect of working magick.

 

“Where do I begin, how should i get started?” my reply. “Art, Thee Art Ov Chaos.” which later became my own brand of the same.KT banks logo_Fotor
