My Experiences About The Jin by M. Mughal

Submission for the Paranormal Corner. From M. Mughal. I am a Egyptian and would like to share with you about my experience about Jins.

I was sixteen years old when I had to visit my village, on my uncle's death, where I was born. My uncle who died, was living in the same 4000 sq. meter home with his family which we had left, long ago. It was a beautifully constructed house with dark memories.

At the age of 10, when I was sleeping in a corner room, which opened could outside toward the jungle, I heard suddenly the walking horse with a chain sound. I ran to the window and saw a big horse walking through the street, all alone ,in the darkness of the midnight at 2 am. In the morning I asked my mother who the horse belonged to after telling her the whole story. She mentioned that there was a women and 'The JIN or Ghost" taking over her body. The horse had belonged to her husband. After that incident I did not sleep in that room ever again and the sound of horse trotting was heard daily. After six months, we moved to the city. That day when I visited my village, upon my uncle's death, again same room was allotted to me but there was nothing to be heard at night.

But in the next day, when a lot of people were visiting our home to offer their condolences, I saw a creepy lady sitting at the corner and so I inquired my aunt about her identity. The reply of my aunt stunned me. She was the same lady of Horse and came to offer her condolences. She stayed there till night fell. Between 5 pm to 6 pm, I heard a scream and rushed towards it. I saw the same woman, lying down with her hands and feet twisted. Many women were sitting around. Then suddenly showers of rice were thrown over us by some one, we weren't able to see. Then every body start saying that the 'JIN ' has arrived. Every body was quite when the woman start mumbling in manly voice that he was the Jin of that women and came here for condolences as the Guy who died was very poise and virtuous. Then within minutes, the women got into her normal condition.

The 2nd day I ran back to my city home. Later people told that after a span of one year the woman died. The JIN was a good one and was merely taking care of the woman. 

Another event of a Jin I would like to share is something that happened to a costumer of mine, the guy told me about something that had happened only 2 kilometers away from were we were sitting at the time. 

He told me that one construction company wanted to build a 5 story building on a land a few months before our meeting. The construction site was known to be the site of a Jin, so local people tried to stop the building project. 

The developers kept sending masons and other laborers to initiate their project on the lot. From the very first day the laborers felt something was watching them. This however did not stop them from doing their job. 

One day their luggage was found spread everywhere in the field. Now they did not want to continue but the owner instructed them to keep on doing the build, but now there were daily something going wrong at the building site. 

After two months, in the evening, a dark storm came and lay over the building site, everyone in the whole neighborhood ran into their homes and had to stay there. They could hear whistling sounds and were all very afraid to go outside. Next day when the storm had finally settled down everybody saw a strange thing which led the owners to stop the building project and leave the place like it was. What they found was that the whole building was nailed with 12mm steel bars which were five to six meter long.

After hearing the story I actually went personally there to check out the building and what I saw was the front and right wall was fully embedded with steel bars it could not been the work human beings.

Astral Vampire (Dangers of the Astral Realm III) by Jose Prado

As I mentioned in the second post about the dangers of the Astral Realm, a Dream Walker is a person who has Semi Shamanic abilities and can thus enter another person's dreams. The most powerful was a teenage Occultist I once met who had attacked a friend she was angry with by entering her dreams and causing her to suffocate. She didn't think anything of it because she was awake when she entered the sleeping girl's dream. She also had no intention to harm her, she was simply mad and visualized hurting her friend.

Her friend reported being attacked by a spirit the next day through suffocation. She was so frightened of what she had done to her friend that at first she asked me to bind her. I refused, explaining to her that she has these gifts for a reason and instead encouraged her to join a Coven with the family's permission *.  This dream walker posed little threat as she was not properly trained. A fully trained dream walker can be a menace to society like the following individual.

A few years ago on Facebook I saw a status posted by a friend who's identity I will omit. She was a Wiccan and an Army wife living in a military base in South Korea. We had begun to develop a friendship. One day she wrote in a status that she had become so sick she was wearing a blanket, soaking her feet in hot water and having horrible nightmares that made her body shake.

Something about this scenario struck a chord with me. It just didn't sound normal especially with how violent the dreams were. I sent her a private message and we began to talk. She said for weeks she was receiving horrible dreams about her ex lover (a man of means and power), who had seduced her in graduate school. The man was her professor and they began a passionate affair but he became too controlling. Eventually they went in different directions vowing to just be friends. When she married, he had given presents to her children which she accepted.

Unfortunately she made a big mistake. She forgot that anything can be 'worked' or 'fixed' (in witch terms, enchanted or bewitched) and accidentally brought cursed objects into her home. They were beacons for him to find her wherever she was. It opened the threshold, the mystical force that protects a house, to him leaving her vulnerable to attack. According to her accounts, her nightmares featured him insanely laughing in her face.

She was breaking down and was forfeiting her will to this man. That was until I gave her the crucial piece of the puzzle she had been missing. The effects on her body, including the lack of vitamins from the nightmares. All pointed to one thing: he was an Astral Vampire. In my studies of the Occult and Demonology I read, among many other books, Jonathan Maberry's Vampire Universe(1), an amazing book which I highly recommend.

Maberry's Vampire Universe mentioned that Astral Vampires were the more evolved and powerful version of Psychic Vampires. A regular Psychic Vampire has to be around a person and either touch them or look at them to drain energy. Those who are truly skilled can drain energy at a distance via crowd energy; taking a little bit from everyone to be satisfied (others can do it remotely via the internet).

Most Psychic Vampires are good people lacking the chemical component to energize themselves and require energy from others to survive, otherwise they grow ill and die. They often have friends who willingly donate their energy or use crowd energy to drain tiny portions from large amounts of people. Usually the people are left unharmed.

Some people however are so parasitic that they develop Psychic Vampirism by nature; being nasty, obsessive, or conflictive. In some legends according to Maberry, those are the personality traits that allow a person to actually curse themselves after death and become a demonic vampire in the first place. Psychic Vampirism therefore can be done even by people who are not born as Psychic Vampires, but even this is only the best case scenario.

The worst case are warlocks or selfish witches who intentionally develop it for greater power in the Black Arts (usually Satanists). Crowley (2) even spoke at length about using it to drain people of their powers. My original master was a Black Mage who tried to corrupt me during my novice years. He said Crowley wanted to create an army of Mimics; Psychic Vampires who could not only drain people but copy their powers, grafting them onto their own spiritual bodies.

They could 'mimic' any power or energy. But I digress. According to Jonathan Maberry there were Warlocks so powerful that they completely superseded being around a person at all to drain their energy. Instead, they could Astral Project to a person in their sleep as a Dream Walker or simply hover above their resting bodies where they could not only drain energy from their victims but also infect their dreams with nightmares, steal information from them, etc...The victim would be helpless and if the vampire were smart, no one would be the wiser. Luckily for her, he was not smart.

He was arrogant. He wanted her to know that he had her and that there was nothing she could do about it. But nothing is insurmountable. I told her what he was and with psychic sight I was able to tell her that the 'gifts' he gave her were cursed. I told her to sprinkle Hoyt's cologne (3) on the gifts to cleanse his energy out completely. I also instructed her to use her own magic to fight him. I had to psychically break the bond between him and her and re-energize her myself before she could do this, otherwise none of her magic would have worked. Once a Psychic or Astral Vampire drains you, there is a connection that weakens the person's powers and any spell cast by victim, no matter how powerful is weakened or does not work at all. I then summoned a powerful spirit to find and bind him.

She then performed an Expurgation (banishing) ritual to banish his energy from the premises. She cleansed the home with Sage and then created a few enchanted satchels to ward him off permanently. I also advised her to sleep with scissors under her pillow (4) to prevent him from attacking her in her sleep again. Needless to say he stopped contacting her after that. Almost immediately he fell ill. Without a person to drain, he was not be able to feed. I felt sorry for him and asked the spirit to allow him to drain crowd energy.

He got well but was never able to harm anyone again. It reminded me of an old Bible text, Psalm 94: 4-11 :

"4 They pour out arrogant words;
all the evildoers are full of boasting.

5 They crush your people, Lord;
They oppress your inheritance.

6 They slay the widow and the foreigner;
they murder the fatherless.

7 They say, “The Lord does not see;
the God of Jacob takes no notice.”

8 Take notice, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?

9 Does he who fashioned the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?

10 Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge?

11 The Lord knows all human plans;
he knows that they are futile,"

Whether you believe in Karma, only one God, or many Gods and Goddesses, everyone in the end gets their fair share of the poisoned crop. It never fails. It's the Law of the Universe.

* The girl in question is now a proficient Exorcist, Pagan Demonologist, and a very wise and learned woman. At 15 she could already bind Demons and use the Seals of Solomon. At 18 she is now one of my best and closest friends as well as a powerful ally in all matters pertaining to the Occult.

1. A Book not only on Vampires, but on Witches, Warlocks, and Faeries. It mostly focuses on Vampires and other Demons. Well worth the read. The man is a true scholar. You can order his book here :

2. Crowley spoke at length not only about Psychic Vampirism but energy manipulation. He also spoke about how all Demons are parasitic in nature and often used blood placed in a demon trap to attract a demon through the life force in the blood. He would then enslave the Demon. I am not posting any links to Crowley here. No black magic allowed.

3. Hoyt's cologne is a cologne used in Hoodoo (Voodoo Folk Magic) that is used in cleansings. Similar to Florida Water, it's primary use is cleansing but it can be used for many other spells as well. I told her to order it from the states so that she could cleanse out the work he had done on the gifts. More on Hoyt's Cologne here :

4. In my article Hags: Demon Witches, I explained that placing scissors that are opened and pointed toward the headboard of a bed prevents evil spirits from attacking or sorcerers from casting their spells on a person in their sleep. Before she could cleanse the cursed objects I told her to use that to block his Astral Visitations and attacks. It worked.

Dream Walker (Dangers of the Astral Realm II) by Jose Prado

The following is an experience our frequent contributor to the Blog, Jose Prado experienced while working for a Coven that specializes in helping people with problems of a Paranormal Nature. This coven of witches performs exorcisms, blessings, and the breaking of evil spells by Warlocks (selfish or unethical witches). This is the second part in a series of Blogs he will be contributing on the dangers of the Astral Realm.

Dream Walker (Dangers of the Astral Realm II) By Jose Prado

At the time of this encounter, I was working with a coven known as Forest Moon Grove. Forest Moon Grove doubles as a paranormal investigation group. We used science as well as sorcery to help people with supernatural issues. We've helped Christians, Buddhists, even the occasional Atheist (of course they didn't stay Atheist for long), but in this experience it was a Wiccan woman who needed help. She had been involved with another practitioner for years before finally breaking up with him. I am not sure what he practiced but this man clearly misused his knowledge for sinister purposes.

Wicca is a revival of old European beliefs inspired by older religions. While the name Wicca and some of its rituals may indeed be 'new age', it is all based on much older faiths and practices. There are good people out there who practice Wicca, but there are also individuals who become intoxicated with power and use them for sinister purposes. I have seen Wiccans bless and I have seen them curse.

As with any faith there are good and bad apples so neither should one be prejudiced and say all of what we do is all 'devil worship'. Unfortunately this individual, as sad and disgusted as I am to say this, was actually involved with diabolical spirits. I actually wondered if perhaps he was working with Aleister Crowley's magic.

It felt like a Goetic Demon* to me. This man was so accomplished in sorcery that he was able to develop psychic abilities and astral projected to this woman in her dreams. This is called Dream Walking; it is a semi-Shamanic ability where one is able to enter a person's dreams telepathically. This man walked into this woman's dreams every night, tormenting and terrorizing the poor woman giving her no reprieve.

She attempted to ward him off with her amulets and spells but to no avail. Something more powerful than a human warlock was at work here. So after many inquiries in the community she found and sought us out. I was brought into a Facebook chat at the time and the woman described a hideous nightmare she had. She dreamed this man had become a demon of some sort with horns and razor sharp teeth. He raped her in the dream and then said, "Now you are mine forever. You'll never escape me."

As she described the dream I began to get sick and I realized that something was on her. It was an Enviacion or Sending in English (1). This time he didn't just dream walk, he came into that dream with a demonic spirit and when he raped her in her dream, he actually placed an energy inside her that acted like a wire tap.

Not only could he locate her wherever she was but he could also know her every move because the spiritual parasite within her was being used to listen in on her conversations. I secretly sent a posted message to the Reiki Master in the group, told him of my suspicions, and he decided he would take care of her personally and remove the energy stain on her himself. With it gone, powerful spirits were summoned to protect her, and after an intense spiritual battle, the warlock finally gave up. He wasn't going to go battle a whole coven of expertly trained witches that could match and counter everything he knew how to do. Today that client is well and fine but her distrust in men, especially those of power, stayed with her.

This was the second time I faced a Dream Walker, though I would have to say this was definitely the most violent experience.

* The Lesser Key of Solomon is a book of Black Magic in which a person uses Prayers to God from Ancient Hebrew sorcery to invoke demons. These are Aleister Crowley's perversions. In the Testament of Solomon, a book of the Bible removed by the Church, Solomon was a Sage (Master Mage, Enlightened Master) who received the power to control even the greatest spirits from a ring he was given by St. Michael the Archangel baring the Pentagram. The word Yerusalem (Jerusalem) was on the Pentagram. With it, he could control even Demonic Gods like Beelzebub. Satan himself and a small minority of Demonic Deities were the only ones immune to the ring. In those days Judaism was Pagan and sorcery was a natural part of the religion. They worshiped the Elohim (Hebrew Gods). When Solomon lived he put his knowledge down in a Grimoire (book of advanced sorcery) and after his death, his followers continued adding spells as late as the Middle Ages. It's believed his followers formed a secret society that some claim became the Order of the Free Masons. The book was called the Key of Solomon and was translated by an author named Macgregor. Aleister Crowley however perverted the spells and used them to control demons and enslave them for his own petty whims. His version of the Hebrew magic, which he divided into two books are the Lesser and Greater Keys of Solomon but these are impure versions of King Solomon's magic. Demons from the Keys are called Goetic Demons. Suffice it to say the Crowleyean version of the book and the actual Key of Solomon are very different at their core.

(1) In Santería (literally 'Saintry' or ‘Holiness’ in English) is an Afro Cuban religion similar to Vodoun. We believe and are taught about ‘enviaciones’ or ‘sendings’. It's a magical operation where a conjurer (sorcerer who can summon spirits or instantly manifest spells) will summon a spirit, any kind of spirit depending on what he needs, and with its help cast a spell on someone. In the very moment the spell is cast, the spirit is bound to the spell, therefore the spell cannot be reversed until the spirit is banished, and the spirit cannot be banished until the spell is reversed. Both either have to be taken apart at the same time or they must be paralyzed and then dealt with separately by another sorcerer. Although the term is unique to Santería, the same method is found in many different cultures and faiths (from European witches, to Judeo-Christian mages, to African practitioners and Native American shamans). If a person is tormented by a spirit and there is no spirit gate open or spiritual stronghold, the only other reason for a cleansing, banishing, or exorcism to not work is when a Sending has been performed. The Sending however always requires a sorcerer, a human element to perform. A spirit cannot make a Sending. It's important to note that not all Sendings are for evil. Some conjurers summon good spirits and cast protective spells to keep someone safe or use negative Sendings only in retaliation for being cursed. Some Sendings have even been used to heal the sick where a healing spirit is called forth and together the conjurer and spirit cast a healing spell.

The Lords of Yule: The Three Pagan Kings, Magi, Majii, Los Tres Reyes Magos, and Wise men by Jose Prado

Note: The Paranormal Corner is made up of different people of many faiths. Disrespecting the writers and their viewpoints will not be tolerated.

I ask that all things be considered when reading this article and add that if you do not like the subjects of this article, save yourself the time by simply not reading it.

Every year in Miami, Fl a Parade is held on the 6th of January in honor of Los Tres Reyes Magos (The Three Magi Kings). It is a tradition from a much older Christian European tradition aligned with the original date for Christmas and the Epiphany. But who were the Magi? Why is so little spoken about them on Christmas? Why all the mystery? What reasons would modern Christians have to fear their history when it so intricately fits into the old and new testament? The Magi are perhaps the most enigmatic and important people of the Bible with a religious tradition going back since before the time of Christ. To know these things, one must open mindedly search for the truth among not only the ancient records, but the modern mages of today to know the whole story. The story of the Magi is the mostly unexplored history of today's Magicians.

Tradition holds that the Magi were Pagan Kings of Persia (Iran), India, and Babylonia (sometimes Arabia rather than Babylonia). Their names were Gaspar, Balthazar, and Melchior. But there are all manner of contradictory information on the Magi not only from religious tradition but by secular and Biblical scholars alike. Some scholars believe they all came from Persia and were Priests of the Medes. Some scholars even claim much to the shock and disgust of Christians, that the Magi who visited Christ were a secret sect created by the Prophet Daniel during the time that Hebrews were enslaved in Persia.

His apprentice was a Pagan Prophet named Baalam in some sources, who continued the lineage of Hebrew Polytheism (Paganism) inside the Persian Polytheist lineage. It should also be noted that the word Magi from Persian Magus once also was used for a Median tribe. (*) Whatsoever the history, Magi were and are still real as even today there are Kurds who claim to descend from the original Magi and the title is still used by magical priests in other countries and in Pagan traditions including solitary Pagans unaffiliated with lineages. Though tradition mentions the names of only Three (possibly the leaders), they were most likely attended to by larger groups of Priests and possibly Priestesses, apprentices, scholars, philosophers, and many more including warriors. The belief that there were only three Magi comes from their names being revealed in tradition.

Possibly because they were very well known in their day and so when the story of Yeshua would be read or told everyone knew who they were. However their names were not revealed until later centuries though in Folklore (the history of the people themselves carried by generations) the same three names almost unchanged except for being translated, appears over and over again.

Even in the Bible, the number of Magi is never mentioned. They were Mages or Magicians (hence the term Magi), Masters of Witchcraft who knew the Arts well and who were able to foretell things by looking into the Stars (Astrology). The original translation of the word Magi originates from the Indo-Persian 'Magh' which means powerful, wealthy, and gifted.

The reason behind this is simply because they were powerful or gifted in the magical arts and also because they were so commanding politically and culturally that they became their own class of Nobles. They were slightly more powerful than regular nobles as they had the ability later on to choose the King in power in Persia. However, modern Mages have expressed to me that they were not exclusively Persian because a Mage can be found in any religion under various names and in the Middle East, at that time, they say the religious world was so interconnected that Magi were found in different countries. Though Persia was obviously where they were the most powerful, Babylonia was a close second. Baalam recorded the legend of the Messiah from Daniel to pass it down to new generations of Magi for them to prepare for the worship and discipleship under Christ.

So for all we know there may have been Magi in the ranks of Yeshua's own followers. Others argue the tradition is correct and that they all came from three different countries. The sign of the Hebrew God sending down the Messiah was seen by all three in their perspective countries (or same country). But we know from history records that people in many countries saw the phenomenon.

This phenomenon leads them to embark on a quest across the lands and countries of the middle-east to find the Jewish Messiah (1).  They would have needed enough supplies to last them for many days to travel so far and reach Yeshua. This journey may have taken several months. One thing of note here is that scholars today will argue that they were not real Kings; they may have been called Kings because they were Enlightened Masters, living as Saints on Earth such as the Buddhas, Gurus or Saints of the Sikhs and are today regarded by many as Ascended Masters in Heavenly realms. Conversely, if Magi were already a more powerful class of Nobles then the Magi being called Kings may have been a sign that they were at the top of the hierarchy of their order.  Scholars now think they were Zoroastrians, the early forefathers of modern day Gnosticism. Other scholars think they evolved from an off shoot of Zoroastrianism. This would further explain why they were interested not only in meeting Yeshua but in worshipping him.

Gnostics believe that all religions were once one religion (originally a spiritual science handed down to humanity by the Gods), and that in this ancient faith, all Gods were worshiped and all magic was practiced. They believe in supreme Gods known as the Godhead. They further believed that Yahweh also known as Bythos the Creator of all other Gods and creatures was one of the Highest Deities of the Godhead. Zoroastrians identified this Deity as Ahura Mazda (The Wise Lord); the same God as Yahweh or Allah in Muslim tradition.

If these are the forefathers of Gnosticism then they more than likely held similar beliefs. Thus the Messiah was considered to be the Messiah for all religious groups, not just the Jews but even for at least some of the Pagans of the time. This is not surprising as Pagans in many cultures had Messiahs that ranged from; Horus, Dionysus, Mithra, and many others.

Even some Buddhists view Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha) as a type of Messiah brought to free the world from Samsara. This new Messiah was just the most recent in an already long established line of saviors. Clearly, the story of the Hebrew Messiah was also well known to other parts of the Middle East. Because they were Zoroastrian mages, they would've been well educated about many Gods and magic and therefore knew the Christ God was coming to Earth. All followers on both sides who claim that Paganism and Christianity do not mix, must reevaluate in lieu of this information and remember that God sent Pagan Mages and Priests to bestow gifts and worship Christ as a newborn child. He then revealed the signs in the sky to lead them to the newborn child.

Would Yahweh really send people he would view as 'ungodly' or 'blasphemous' to visit his son? To me, that just doesn't make any sense. That's like God sending Devil Worshipers to give Yeshua gifts. He also displayed signs that any Magician would recognize as mystical. That confirms his support for Astrology. Nowhere in the Bible does Yahweh ever say he does not approve of them.

The Magi's original trip was cut short when Yahweh entered their dreams and warned them of King Herod's attempts at trying to Kill Yeshua as a newborn. They stopped the journey in the home of Herod, the Roman appointed King of Israel (2). This is a testament to their importance. Either they were real Kings or they were Kings in their own right for being Magicians and Enlightened Masters. Only someone of that level of importance could have entered the Palace of Herod.

When they communicated with Herod that the Messiah would be born he feared for his rule. The Messiah had to be of pure Royal blood according to the Prophecy. Furthermore, a divinity sent by Yahweh himself would already have more power than the Roman appointed ruler. Herod however was crafty and he told them "When you find the Messiah, please inform me of his whereabouts so that I may worship him along with you."

His ultimate plan was to murder the Messiah and prevent him from ever being a threat. But when Yahweh warned them in dreams, of Herod's plot, they split up and hid for two years so that Herod would not follow them to Yeshua. Here we have a Dream Interpretation that God participated in. If using Magic and Interpreting dreams is a 'sin' that would mean Yahweh participated in a sin willingly. The fact that God did this is proof sorcery is not a sin.

The idea that this activity might be a sin springs from Emperor Constantine when he rewrote the Bible. But I digress. The Magi did not find Yeshua until two years later when he was in his toddler years. When Herod found out the Magi had vanished he flew into a rage and demanded that every newborn male child in Jerusalem had to be killed. The Archangel Gabrielle (Hebrew) or Jibriel (Arabic) warned Josef and Maryam (3) of the slaughter and they moved away to a land called Nazareth.

There they stayed in Nazareth until the holy archangel told them to return. Finally, when they did, the Magi found them. An important thing to note is that scientists think the Star of Bethlehem phenomenon may have happened more than once. There are even ancient records to prove it. Could another such phenomenon created by Yahweh have led the Magi Kings back to Yeshua? Perhaps someday we will know for sure.

Mystical Christians today have formed the Eternal Order of the Magi, where they train and teach disciples for enlightenment. The idea of the Magi and their pre- Gnostic teachings are passed down through initiation and discipleship into the Order.

You can join the society if you are interested. In Europe, Cunning Folk or Witches would advise people to draw the initials CBM near doors and windows to keep out evil spirits as a warding amulet. These initials, CBM represent the following; Caspar (the Anglicized name of Gaspar), Balthazar, and Melchior. In NOLA Hoodoo this is done before or after New Years to prevent bad spirits from entering. I can personally testify to the great power that ensues by using and invoking their names in magic. I have even called on the Magi in several of my magical workings and when I took an apprentice for the first time; I realized my student had a strong connection to the Magi when she prayed, but that is a story for another Yule.

These powerful spiritual beings who rule this time of year, The Magi, are among the sacred Lords of Yule/Sol Invictus/Saturnalia/Christmas. They are known for bestowing blessings upon the needy (4) , ensuring that through the dark time of the year the dead can visit their loved ones (5), and allowing those who must leave this realm to cross over.

The Day sacred to the Magi is January 6th, also known as the Festival of the Three Kings, The Festival of the Magi, or the Festival of the three Magi Kings is celebrated by Christian Witches and by the Cuban Christian community (both by Catholics and non-Catholics) both in North America and Cuba.; Christians Witches are also known as Mystical Christians. In Miami, Florida, the Cuban people have a great Festival with men dressed as the Magi Kings in the streets, reenacting the events of the Magicians finding Yeshua. The festival in tradition does not end until January 11th. Both 6 (Hexagram, Star of David) and 11 (The Master number) are important numbers in numerology.  The feast was clearly an important one for many of the European Magoi. One wonders if they ever suspected the prominent spiritual role they had in store for them 2000 years after their deaths.

I've come to suspect that many tribes started out not as nations or tribes but as spiritual orders. The Gypsies, for instance, claim St. Sara the Egyptian (or Sara La Kali who is a Gnostic Christian Saint and Priestess) is their direct blood ancestor. The Gypsies started out as Christian Hebrews and Egyptian Christian converts who followed Sara and her mother Maryam of Magdala (Mary Magdalene) along with St. Marta and St. Lazarus who Gnostic legend says came to France where they were greeted by Pagan Shamans and became respected members of the community. Centuries later the Jett people from Northern India and Pakistan came to Europe to escape the war between Afghanistan and their own country. They mixed with Shamans who by that time were descended of both Europeans and Sara's people. Because she had come from Kemet or Egypt they were later called Gypsies.

The most prominent genetic marker of all Gypsies is the one linking them to the Jett people. Of course to be fair, Sara and her people were a minority that was quickly absorbed by the French Pagan majority. Jett refugees came in untold numbers, to Europe, based on the genetic evidence from the Gypsies/Rome/Romany. They could actually really be descendants of Egyptians and Hebrews as well. Quite simply, the Jett gene is easier to prove because they absorbed the original two groups.

The point is, we saw how two religious groups merged into one tribe which then merged with another group of people. The reason why some of the Medes may have been called Magi could be due to the possibility that they all started as Magicians who then formed a tribe and became a Magician tribe like the original Gypsies (though many Gypsies of today have turned their back on their Folk Faith and don't even want to be called Gypsies instead preferring Rome).

The majority of the Jewish community does not believe Yeshua of Nazareth was the Messiah. Although smaller groups known as Messianic Jews or simply "Jews for Jesus" do acknowledge him as the Christ. They practice a type of revival of Yeshua's original Judeo-Christian version of his teachings; although some are more original to the source than others. See Gnostic Christianity, Esoteric Christianity, and the Kabbalah.

The Romans had conquered Syria Palaestina, or Palestine as we call it today, (there were many Kingdoms in this land including Israel, the whole country was not Israel) they set up a brutal military occupation (much like Palestine today) and brutalized the population. This continued to the extent of performing mass executions of anyone deemed a rebel. Herod, a noble, who saw his opportunity to seize control appealed to Emperor Octavian, the first Emperor of Rome, convincing him that under his leadership Israel would bow down to the Romans and to their Emperor. Augustus Octavian agreed and placed Herod as the false King. In reality St. Josef, Yeshua's human Father, was a direct descendant of the Kings of Israel. He had the true claim with scrolls in the Hebrew Libraries proving his Royal lineage.

Because he was St. Josef’s foster son (or real son if you do not believe in his divinity) Yeshua would have had the true claim to the throne. This lineage is the reason Herod wanted him dead. Herod wanted to eliminate the competition. The initials I.N.R.I.  are on the Cross of Christ for this reason; The Romans put it on the cross. In Latin the words of each initial are Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum or "Yeshua of Nazareth, King of the Jews."

In this post I am using the actual historical names of the figures and places. Not the Anglicized or modern names; this is to avoid further stealing the people and their significance from their culture. See, Cultural Appropriation and Cultural Misappropriation.

Santa Claus is really a mixed concept. There is no such thing as just one Yule Lord. Different people expect different beings to arrive to them on this time of year. Some believe it is the Magi and others still think it is La Befana (The Giver of Gifts) their friend who was a Roman Hedge witch. In China they have their own version of a spiritual being that looks upon the sinners and the virtuous and reports what they have done to the Divine Emperor for either rewards or punishments. The Norse Heathens who worship the Aesir (Heavenly Gods) and Vanir (Earthly Gods) believe Odin and Thor are the ones who comes forth baring gifts to the faithful. For Christians, it is St. Nicholas of Myra (Bari) who does this. For Greek worshipers of the Theoi (Gods) it is Poseidon.

Sometimes the Magi or someone else will be the one to bestow the Gifts. Also, the 'gifts' are not to be taken literally. The Yule Lords bestow gifts spiritually. For a witch it may be magic, for a poor family it may be prosperity, for a lonely person it may be love, and for a sickly person it may be health. The Yule Lords, including Nicholas never really gave physical gifts. That tradition of receiving physical gifts comes from giving a person a gift of cloths on Yule to ward off the Yule Cat: a Demonic Black Cat as big as a horse in some stories that preys on the poor.  It's a Demonic familiar of a Hag (demon witch) named Frau Percha.

The act of having a physical gift brings prosperity which wards it off. It also comes from a group of Nuns from France who in the 1100's were inspired by the story of St. Nicholas and the destitute daughters, and chose the 6th night of December (coinciding with Pagan celebrations still celebrated on this day) to feed the poor by leaving them food in their used stockings. These are things humans do, not spirits. These are the origins of the Christmas stockings still used today.

The Dark Time of Year, starts from October and does not truly end till February. Modern peoples of the world think that the Veil closes after Samhain (Halloween). This is far from the truth. Samhain is where it truly begins. The Interdimensional doorways do not close until the festival of Imbolg in February. The Dead remain with us until then and scores of other worldly creatures remain on Earth until then as well. These remaining creatures range from Faeries, Angels, and even Demons to name but a few. This includes Human souls and the occasional alternate universe creature; not a spirit but an entity such as an animal that does not truly belong in this Universe. There are even stories of people from our world venturing off into other worlds through these unseen boundaries. Sometimes they come back with a hell of a story to tell and other times they simply vanish never to return. This is the time of year ruled by the Winter Court or Dark Faeries.
