Order of the Arcanum: The Good, the Bad, and the Psyche (1)
There is an extremely powerful group of Bulgarian Wizards that are called the Order of the Arcanum. They do let newer members in, but the majority of these wizards come from the Old Order, which means they come from the Dark Ages. Modern governments are not the only ones with secrets to hide. During the Dark Ages, the Bulgarian empire was extremely successful in expanding its border to include a big chunk of the European continent. Sure, they did this through military might; however, they also had a secret operation in which they trained operatives in the ways of the Arcane Arts, to develop magic that could be used in warfare.
These magic that these wizards were able to develop brought great success to the Bulgarian Empire. Unfortunately, when the Bulgarians adopted Christianity as their national religion, this band of magically induced soldiers was disbanded, some of them even imprisoned for their use of magic. The soldiers maintained a loose connection to one another until there was a secret meeting of the most powerful and the Order of the Arcanum was created. It served as a place where the wizards, who were bred by the Bulgarian government in the first place, could come to practice their magic, where they’d be safe.
They began making magical pieces that they could put their magic into. This way they could share their magic with one another and also with those who are not part of the Arcanum. The order exists until this very day, but they still exist in secret, because their magic is so powerful. These days they meet in secret at a secret temple called the Archos. If I’m being honest I don’t know where the Archos is located. I just know that it is located somewhere in Europe and I’m pretty sure that’s where the French electronics company gets its name from. I mean, think about it, is developing electric and computers and electronics nothing more than manipulating the energies around us to get what we want, i.e. pictures, sounds, wireless communication, etc?? It’s all relative.
Anyhow, the Archos is where the Order of the Arcanum meet in secret. It is also where they keep their most powerful magical items that have been created by the wizards of the Arcanum. Recently, we scored a collection of these pieces at an underground auction in Virginia somewhere. I can’t say whether or not these items were supplied by the Arcanum or if they have been taken . I would tend to say the latter, because these pieces aren’t given out like that because it takes a lot of magic to make them. This is merely speculation, though.
If you were to look up psyche, you would see that a general definition of the word is having to deal with the human soul, mind, or spirit. Thus, you will understand when I say that this piece deals with the human psyche that I am talking about your inner being, not the one that exists on the outside. Flesh and bone is merely an outer shell that will fall away during your spiritual metamorphosis and what you are left with is the psyche. It’s who you truly are. It holds your subconscious, your awareness, and you persona. It can also hold the powers that you have gained during a lifetime. This is how when you are doing a past life regression, you will sometimes wake up with powers that you never knew you had.
There are two of these pieces. They are sterling silver rings with a wizard that holds a crystal ball above his head. This is because when the piece is worn, it opens up the life in your third eye. It is often said that the eyes are the window to the soul. This couldn’t be more true when it comes to the third eye, which is invisible. When the third eye is open, many different types of powers will come to you, mostly cognitive powers such as psychic abilities and things like that.
This piece focuses on the psyche. When the powers in this piece have bonded with you, your third eye will be open. You will be able to you use your newly attained powers to see through the third eyes of other people-- whether they have been opened or not-- and to observe their psyche. You can use this piece for any individual or entity that you choose. You will be able to sift through the contents of the psyche to any powers that exist. You will then be able to pull these powers through and make them your own. You are not stealing these powers, you are duplicating them. In the same manner, you can also pass powers from your third eye into the third eye of others. You can use your third eye to locate souls in the environment around you, to summon them, and to duplicate their powers. You can use your newly opened psyche to project life into inanimate or deceased entities, by sharing the powers of the arcanum with them, which is essentially the powers of life that exist all around us.
