This drawing symbolizes the revival of the “inmost light“ hidden in every man.The inmost light represents what for the egyptians was defined “Akh“ or“Khu“,this is the bright element that through the death rises in the sky as a bright star to reunite itself with the universe.This is opposed to the body which belongs to the earth.Revive the hidden inmost light means revive your “TRUE EGO“ by the destruction of your “PRESENT EGO“.This practice conducts to the end of the continuos “soul recycling“ and to the end of the numerous unnecessary reincarnations, this pratice also conducts to the understanding of the “universal cycle“and to the death understanding as a easy phase change and not to the end of the life, until the achievement of the “eternal life“.Symbols:Ankh: symbolizes the eternal life in the egyptian creed.Caduceus: symbol of “mercury” the big power that conducts the man to the light.The head: in the head is represented the tree of life with elevation at the floors and the opening of the third eye.Solomon’s star: is the symbol of the macrocosm.Invocative circle: the basic circle for the invocation.

This drawing symbolizes the revival of the “inmost light“ hidden in every man.
The inmost light represents what for the egyptians was defined “Akh“ or“Khu“,
this is the bright element that through the death rises in the sky as a bright star to reunite itself with the universe.
This is opposed to the body which belongs to the earth.
Revive the hidden inmost light means revive your “TRUE EGO“ by the destruction of your “PRESENT EGO“.
This practice conducts to the end of the continuos “soul recycling“ and to the end of the numerous unnecessary reincarnations, this pratice also conducts to the understanding of the “universal cycle“
and to the death understanding as a easy phase change and not to the end of the life, until the achievement of the “eternal life“.

Symbols:
Ankh: symbolizes the eternal life in the egyptian creed.
Caduceus: symbol of “mercury” the big power that conducts the man to the light.
The head: in the head is represented the tree of life with elevation at the floors and the opening of the third eye.
Solomon’s star: is the symbol of the macrocosm.
Invocative circle: the basic circle for the invocation.

The Celtic god Cernunnos on the Gundestrup Cauldron
The Gundestrup Cauldron is a richly decorated silver vessel, thought to date between 200 BC and 300 AD, placing it within the late La Tène period or early Roman Iron Age. The cauldron is the largest known example of European Iron Age silver work. It was found in 1891 in a peat bog near the hamlet of Gundestrup in the Aars parish of Himmerland, Denmark. Despite the fact that the vessel was found in Denmark, there has been a debate between a Gaulish origin and Thracian origin on account of the workmanship, metallurgy, and imagery.
Cernunnos is the conventional name given in Celtic studies to depictions of the “horned god” of Celtic polytheism. The name itself is only attested once, on the 1st-century Pillar of the Boatmen, but depictions of a horned or antlered figure, often seated cross-legged and often associated with animals and holding or wearing torcs, are known from other instances.
Nothing is known about the god from literary sources, and details about his name, his cult or his significance in Celtic religion are unknown. Speculative interpretations identify him as a god of nature or fertility.
