The Abyss is one of the greatest tests upon our spiritual path. Its revelations and the wonders beheld by the eyes of a soul - successful in traversing its dark expanse - are little comfort to those currently undergoing this heinous transformation. Lucifer's Flame devours all in its path, fashioning the soul who undertakes the Flight of the Phoenix. Every last defence is torn away as pride and ego are shredded - stripped of all we believe we hold dear - before our souls are cast, naked and alone, into the Great Darkness. Those lacking in true faith and devotion are torn asunder by the Abyss. This black phase is a truly a terrible experience - but it is one that must be endured. The brave souls currently undergoing this tremendous challenge have everything that they need within their own hearts to succeed. Faith alone is the key that initiates the Rise of the Phoenix, the immortal Witch-soul, reborn of fire. These are the devoted of Children of the Trident - fashioned in this dark furnace by the Hands of the Gods - who will emerge with new purpose and power upon the Path of Hecate in this ancient, sacred Arte.
The sabbat nights intensify the fires of evolution. To a soul undergoing such a powerful transformation this can be unsettling. Direct your energies into honouring the Gods of Witchflame and steady your course - held firm in faith and devotion - to the successful completion of the Dark Lake Crossing. Brothers and Sisters of this Witchflame Arte I salute you!
With Blessings in this Primal Craft.
Forever in service to Hecate,
In the Shadow of the Trident, cast by Lucifer's Flames,
- Flames of The Phoenix
