Golden Dawn astral initiation rituals do not work magically 0=0 AO astral astral initiation aura dr who Egypt EOGD fraud golden dawn initiation initiator inner plane magic magical groups mathers occult stella matutina talisman temples by Nick Farrell - December 8, 20132 I am famous for being blunt and the headline statement will get a few people upset. I have said over a number of years that I do not believe that astral initiation into the Golden Dawn work, but have not said why.I would LOVE astral initiation to work. As the head of an order, it would mean that I could set up temples in the US or other far-flung parts of the world at a great rate. If I was charging fees for this, I could make a bomb. It would enable groups to be established without me having to bring people to Rome for training. In short, astral initiation is a tool for empire building rather than creating magicians.
