Makaveli The Mystic Part 1: (Symbolism of Tupac Shakur; Books he read in prison)


Want exclusive Tupac articles, videos, and investigations?  Updated weekly on our Patreon.


The aura that surrounds Tupac Shakur’s life and death grows stronger with each passing year.  New theories and old theories of him faking his death continue to be supported while 2017 marked his induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Tupac’s posthumously legacy shows no signs of slowing down.  Although much is known about his public life through videos, interviews, and music; his interest in the occult and the astral realm is a little-known fact of history.

Incarcerated from February 14, 1995, until October 12, 1995, Tupac engulfed himself into a literary retreat of the senses.  A list of the books he read at the Clinton Correctional Facility famously made it’s way around the internet in the early 2000’s.  We’ve researched nine books that led Tupac into the white light and influenced quotes such as “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” and “Let’s go inside my astral plane.”



“Initiation” by Elisabeth Haich was probably one of the first books Tupac read on the occult.  Initiation is a mystical-telling of Haich’s former lives, including her incarnation into the daughter of Pharaoh Athois.  It details how the future is relayed via consciousness as dreams; this is a beginning stage of controlling/altering your fate.  The book will open your eyes into the depths of reincarnation.


Ponder on This” is a compilation of Alice Bailey’s teachings; it acts as an encyclopedia of mystical tools and prepares you for “Initiation,” a spiritual development that you enter upon birth.  Astral Projection is mentioned as a concept that is vital for Initiation; one must learn to see through the fog and illusion, stabilizing their etheric bodies with the vibrations on the plane.


The Destiny of the Nations” is another piece of Alice Bailey’s work.  World dominions are at an ever-changing realm; this and the fate of each nation relies on energy masses and consciousness of its people.  This book examines the inner-depths of social interaction.


Serving Humanity” is Alice Bailey’s concept within “soul contact” and the utilization of the personality on the physical plane of existence.  Telepathy, Illumination, and Control of Speech are a few of the topics covered in the literature.


Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle” is the last book of Alice Bailey’s that appears on the list.  The essence of mental energy and communication is the key dynamic to the book.  A “flow” of energy is discussed and correlates with connecting to the overall system of energy fields for the world.


“The Meaning of Masonry”  by W.L. Wilmshurst describes the inner workings of Free Masonry and the symbolism that incorporates the ancient mysteries of Egypt.   The book opens in one passage with this line “The papers here collected are written solely for members of the Masonic Order.”


Gershom Scholem’s book “Kabbalah” is considered one of the blueprints of Jewish mysticism.  The Torah and the hidden symbology within the text are interpreted and projected into a higher understanding of GOD.


Mysticism” written by Evelyn Underhill acts as an introduction into the manifestation of energy as it pertains to the mystic arts.  This would’ve been the centerpiece for Tupac in regards to magic. 


The Tibetan Book of the Dead” is what more than likely influenced Tupac’s belief in “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” as it deals with life-after-death scenario and how we perceive this experience.  The line was first used by Evil Mind Gangstas on their 1993 song “Livin On The Edge” and also featured on the OG recording “Reincarnation” along with Hussein Fatal and other Outlawz members.  The quote gained mainstream status with the release of “Only Fear of Death” on the 1997 album “R U Still Down? (Remember Me)”.  The three Bardo realms of the afterlife are “Bardo of Death,” “Bardo of reality,” and, the “Bardo of rebirth.”  


The majority of the books listed are written by New Age writer Alice Bailey and were transmitted to her by the Tibetan Ascended Master Djwal Khul.  This is significant for many reasons.  Bailey’s work correlates along the line of the white magic (right-hand) path; most of her teachings deal with the evolution of karma and the final mastering of the astral plane.  To master or achieve a “higher” realm you need to have an understanding of the “lower” realms and when to embrace it and when to look beyond the vibrations that you’ll encounter. 

Alice Bailey’s teachings are on Theosophy (mystical and occult texts) and embrace a path to enlightenment.  As you can see from the list of books Tupac read, he had no literature on Aleister Crowley and the new age religion “Thelema.”  Thelema is based on “The Book of the Law,” the law is “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.  Love is the law, love under will.”  This focuses more on the individual spiritual path and the use of magick in different forms.

Spirituality captures the imagination of not only your inner-self but the self that surrounds you.  There exists techniques that many consider controversial or even witchcraft… the left-handed path & the right-handed path depending on usage.  Two examples of this would be Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine” as it holds a right-hand atmosphere to the readers.  The opposite of this would be Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of the Law” which deals with the aspect of the left-hand.  In reality, how you perform the white or black magic and for what use determines the Good or Evil concept.

The Right-Hand Path deals with concepts of the body, spirit & mind.  Karma is also present.  This would be associated with ‘finding yourself’ through meditation and white light.

The Left-Hand Path dives into the use of Satanic imagery, sex magic & other taboo methods of rituals.  Many musicians and artists have adapted to this path as it symbolizes and showcases the use of magic (in the open). 

Pictured below is Jay Z with Crowley’s law “Do What Thou Wilt” next to a picture of Crowley.


Here is the famous Beatles cover “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”.  Crowley is included.


According to Alice Bailey: The White Magician has the motivation that will benefit the group he surrounds himself with/has contact with.  The Black Magician works alone, and if he works within a group, his/her purpose is shrouded with a selfish ego.  The White Magician works for the balance of the universe.  The Black Magician works for no one and represents no unity.  The Left-hand path will always assume supreme power on the physical and astral realms; this is because Black Magicians crave exposure within their rituals of magick.  The Right-hand path evolves, it does not believe in using magick for ‘selfish’ reasons as induced by the Left.

Papa Legba is a spirit in Haitian Vodou whose job is to act as a “channel” between the living and the dead.  In folklore, he’s presented as an old man with a cane.  Updated versions depict him as young and energetic.  The cane represents the connection to the fertility of the earth.  To salute Papa Legba, a follower will present three knocks to ask him to open the door of the unknown.  The colors he wears are red and black or white and black.  In Tupac’s music video “Made Ni**az” Papa Legba makes multiple appearances.  Below is a scene that symbolizes Papa Legba.

Red/White and Black are presented on his jacket.  Three knocks close the ceremony of the music video.




The same footage can be seen in the “Hit ‘Em Up” music video.


Also, the “I Wonder if Heaven Got A Ghetto” video was specifically designed by the director Lionel C. Martin to leave the door open to theories revolving around if Tupac was still alive.  Tupac arrives at RUKAHS, New Mexico on a helicopter where nuns take care of him.  There’s a scene where Tupac gets on a bus, and along the ride, different musicians and revolutionaries get on such as…  Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Huey Newton, Martin Luther King, but who is the mysterious guy in the very back?










This looks identical to the mystic Grigori Rasputin.  He is widely known for the various assassination attempts on his life, most of these attempts all took place in a period of one night in December of 1916.  He was poisoned, shot, beaten, strangled and survived each encounter but finally, his conspirators tied him in a rug and tossed him into an icy river.  Rasputin broke out of the bondage and attempted to swim until he succumbed to the cold.


If you look hard enough, mysticism is a foundation of Tupac’s work.   And Tupac wasn’t the only Outlaw to make a song about astral projection.

Sefer Yetzirah (Golem creation in Kabbalah)

A creation bonded and brought to life by the divine names.  When a ritual is given proper creation through the use of symbology within the Sefer Yetzirah, a Golem will manifest.  Monsters like Frankenstein and Golems are thought to only be of folklore.  On an episode of X-files “Kaddish” (episode 15 of season 5), a Golem is brought-to-life and takes vengeance on anyone who opposes its creator.  The “Golem of Prague” is the best-known story of the Golem, aligning with the plot of the X-Files as well.  In the 16th century, Rabbi Judah Bezalel created a Golem to fight and stabilize Prague from antisemitic attacks and rhetoric.  The magical spell would work all days of the week besides on Saturday, the sabbath.

Multiple writings reveal how to use the Sefer Yetzirah to summon a life-fused puppet of sorts, there also exists a broad range of texts that distort the original.  The Kabbalah wheel (231 gates) connects Hebrew letters as gateways for the ritualUse dust to spell three letters ADM (man).  You summon combinations within the eleven letters of Hebrew rune.  This is only one technique, others can be seen here.


Mystic texts are barely performed via rituals, but what if someone could interpret the correct sequence of letters and create a Golem? Or is the text just another prophetic way of telling us that technology is our Golem?

Elohim Arising (Alchemy and White/Black Magic)

Necromancy is the practice of channeling magic to contact the deceased. Considered a form of black magic, this very tool was used in the Hebrew Bible by the Witch of Endor who first appears in The Book of Samuel.  The Witch summoned the prophet Samuel’s soul using a technique known as scrying, this was requested by King Saul of the Kingdom of Israel.  Saul seeks wisdom from the dead although all the mediums were driven out-of-town due to their power in witchcraft.  The Philistine army is on the outskirts of Israel and the stress slowly drives him to the arms of a necromancer.


He disguises himself & searches the night, motivated in his efforts; he meets the Witch of Endor who not only summons Samuel but also predicts the inevitable doom that King Saul will soon witness.  The next day he commits suicide when his army is defeated.

First mentioned in the Book of Exodus — these stones would be placed within a Priestly Breastplate; this enabled them to foretell the future & gain guidance from God.  The breastplate was the fashion of The High Preist of the Israelites, leaving judgment at God’s will.  The twelve jewels that were placed in the breastplate had no relation to each other and contained their own alchemical process.  The breastplate was connected to an Ephod (object of priestly rituals).  Both the breastplate & Ephod are usually made from the same material.  This acted as a medium to God.


The hidden name of God. Origins can also be found in The Book of Exodus.

72 fallen angels of heaven. 

Alister Crowley stated about the Shemhamphorasch:

“There are three verses in Exodus (xiv, 19, 20, 21) each containing seventy-two letters. By writing down the first of these, and underneath this the next verse backwards, and under this again the last verse forwards, seventy-two columns of three letters each are obtained. These are read downwards, and the terminations AL or AH, according as they are male or female, appended.” – Book of Thoth: (Egyptian Tarot), Issue 5

Houdini Debunked Séances

And then promised to come back through the use of a Séance.  The man was Harry Houdini & his life was shrouded in mystery.  Houdini and his wife Bess had devised a coded message (Rosabelle Believe) that he would try to communicate back to her if he was ever to pass away performing his life-daring acts.  The passing of his mother sent him for answers from a spiritual perspective.  He noticed the parlor tricks included with the Séances & dedicated his time to debunking traveling mediums he would encounter, often offering them awards to showcase their “true” abilities. 

One of his best-known cases involved the self-proclaimed medium Mina Crandon, revealing her techniques he had observed through her performances.  The magazine Scientific American held a contest rewarding a cash prize to any medium who could demonstrate psychic abilities in a controlled environment.  No one was able to claim the prize, although the magazine published an article praising Crandon’s psychic handy-work.


Houdini claimed that Theatrical Séances were within the proper protocol of performance if the entertainer did not relay his abilities to the workings of psychic powers, but instead to a theatrical approach.  He invented the Séance Box, which covered the majority of the medium’s body.  This was the main factor in debunking the medium and their trickery.  All and all… Houdini never met his match.

Séance Box

Edgar Cayce was deemed the “Sleeping Prophet” for his uncanny approach to fortune telling.  He would lay on a couch… entering a trance & would interpret images that were channeled to him.  A master of Christian Mysticism… he dealt with astral projection, automatic writing, holistic healing, astrologer & much more.  A random meeting with a traveling stage hypnotist (The Laugh Man) was the cause of his sudden BOOM in powers.  Many of the future events he describes have taken place or the time period has not arrived yet.


His talents were not only tied into the future, he also engaged in readings for health information.  He worked alongside Doctors, with no prior knowledge of medicine & supplied knowledge that later has been confirmed by health organizations & Doctors to be true.

Predicting the deaths of two Presidents while in office.

You are to have turmoil — you are to have strife between capital and labor. You are to have a division in your own land before you have the second of the Presidents that next will not live through his office … a mob rule!”

The Rise of Hitler

In 1935 he stated Hitler would rise and would only “come as an overthrow or an outside war” to end his reign.

You can read more about his life here.


Even though Cayce didn’t perform Séances in the sense of using his knowledge & powers for publicity –s etting him aside from the tricks associated with wowing an audience at-will; he did provide a service that holds true-to-the-facts.  Edgar Cayce’s readings provide an insight on the spiritual movement that rose to fame during the 1920’s.  Could Houdini have debunked Cayce?  Or would Cayce have debunked Houdini?

Séance (Tap into your Spiritual Side)

Well-known Magicians gained extra exposure by debunking Ouija board sessions. Spirituality captures the imagination of not only your inner-self but the self that surrounds you.  There are many techniques that many consider controversial or even witchcraft… the left-handed path & the right-handed path — depending on usage.  Two examples of this would be Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine” as it holds a right-hand atmosphere to the readers.  The opposite of this would be Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of the Law” which deals with the aspect of the left-hand.

The Right-Hand Path deals with concepts of the body, spirit & mind. Karma is also present.

The Left-Hand Path dives into the use of Satanic imagery, sex magic & other taboo methods of rituals.

1. Water Séance

Influenced by the Ancestors in Espiritismo (Santeria) & incorporated into the ceremonial process in the 1940s/50s.  It’s a channeling of working with spirits, your Ancestors of blood, spirit animals, guides & masters.  The spiritual elevation is the concept for this practice.  Maintaining a stable prayer while assisting in spirits that are trapped or lost in this realm.  This is where the white light, prayer, and communication with the spirits align.  The sole focus is on prayers, the evolution of your ESP levels & developing a gateway of guidance via your spiritual energy.  This can also be utilized for spiritual blessings/healing.

Pseudoscience or not. If you believe in it, it’ll take effect.

What You Need

  • White Light.  An aura surrounds you. 
  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protects you. 
  • The water.  It moves if energy is around, or channeling might come via vocalization. 

2. Talking Board

The mainstream tactic of necromancy is using a board of some sort to communicate with spirits.  Ouija boards (talking boards) have been used since ancient times but were thrown into the public’s eye in the late 1800’s.  One of the first accounts of this is in The Hebrew Bible, the Witch of Endor is sought out by King Saul of the Kingdom of Israel to communicate with the Prophet Samuel. The witch is immersed with familiar spirits, she obliges. Accounts speculate that she did not summon Samuel, but instead a force of manipulation.

The Witch of Endor, Dmitri Nikiforovich Martynov


The alluring factor of the Ouija board is the power to communicate with an unknown source. This could very well be a side-effect of the Ideomotor Phenomenon (motions made unconsciously).  Ouija boards & the subconsciousness go hand-to-hand, acting as a form of Anamnesis.  Whatever your belief is — you’ll get something out of the experience depending on your input method.  Well-known Magicians gained extra exposure by debunking Ouija board sessions.

What You Need

  • White Light.  An aura surrounds you. Image B
  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • Talking Board (You can buy one like Image A or make one like Image B.
  • A Planchette of some sort.  (It’ll come with the board if you buy one Image C.  I made mine from the bottom of a glass base. Image D









3. Catoptromancy

The art form that forces the past, present, and future into a cycle of mediumship by looking into the reflection of a mirror.  Positioned usually towards the moon.  A makeshift shadow box of sorts can be used to place the subject into complete darkness while staring directly into their reflection.

Experience the new reality.  Brought to you by your third eye.  Free-forming a self without being a version of that self.  A form of this (Scrying) can be found within techniques of many mediums.

What You Need

  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, religious statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • A mirror.  This can be a small makeup mirror or a larger one… it’s due to preference & size of the location you’re conducting the Catoptromancy at.


Forms of Catoptromancy & Necromancy can be found in more than a few Disney films. The Black Cauldron, Hercules & Snow White.

4. Psychomanteum

A claustrophobic approach to necromancy & the most modern concept on the list.  This is an invention from famed Dr. Raymond Moody (a philosopher, psychologist & doctor); known for his experiments on life after death, OBE (Out of Body) & NDE (Near Death).  It involves an enclosed area, limited lighting (candle), and a mirror angled to only reflect the darkness.  This allows you to contact spirits & deal with grief.  This can also induce astral projection.

What You Need

  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • A mirror.  This works better with a larger mirror.
  • White Light – Candle for aura


5. Cartomancy

The teller of the future.  Cards envision this very moment… or did they? Cartomancy involves fortune telling via the usage of cards. The most common example of this is Tarot Cards.  Mainstream Cartomancy can be attributed to Antoine Court de Gébelin (Freemason) who launched the idea that the Tarot Cards were an Egyptian wisdom to be harnessed by Western civilization.

What You Need

  • Prayer or Spiritual items (prayer beads, spiritual statues…etc.) protect you. 
  • Tarot Cards (you can purchase these almost anywhere)
  • White Light – Candle for aura


Texts such as Dogma et Rituel de la Haute Magie written by the Sage Éliphas Lévi includes traces of Tarot.


In the letters of the words AZOTH and INRI written kabbalistically; and in the monogram of Christ as embroidered on the Labarum, which the Kabbalist Postel
interprets by the word ROTA, whence the adepts have formed their Taro or Tarot,
by the repetition of the first letter, thus indicating the circle, and suggesting thatthe word is read backwards. 

All magical science is comprised in the knowledge of this secret.

To know it and have the courage to use it is human omnipotence; to
reveal it to a profane person is to lose it; to reveal it even to a disciple is to abdicate in favour of that disciple, who, henceforward, possesses the right of life and
death over his master – I am speaking from the magical standpoint – and will certainly slay him for fear of dying himself.”

Spirit Cookbook of Politics

Project Astral was the first to report the occult link to BOOK OF THE LAW/CAKE OF THE LIGHT via Reddit at 3 A.M.  We have more information regarding the overall practice of this ritual & how it connects to our Government.



   1.5 cups flour

  • 6 tablespoons. extra virgin olive oil

  • 7 tablespoons. honey

  • 1 tablespoons. wine leavings

  • 7 drops Abramelin oil

  • Optional: Blood/Semen



Influenced by Tantra sex practices, Aleister Crowley (pictured above) portrayed Sex Magick rituals & many others during his lifetime.  IMAGES DERIVED THROUGH THE ENERGY ASSOCIATED WITH SEX… WHICH IS ONE OF THE STRONGEST ENERGY FIELDS.  Images are harnessed through this realm… similar to this scene from Altered States (1980).  This is a form of the alchemical process.  Sexual energy combined with a trance/meditation.  Origins of Sex Magick date back to the Knights of the Templar.  If you want to know more about the process… here’s a link.


If you’re not familiar with rituals…  This would be a great place to start.

The Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre campground located in Monte Rio, California.  It’s known for its mysterious meeting that takes place once a year…this including Presidents, Congressmen & other Men of the establishment.  Reporter Alex Jones infiltrated the compound in 2000… You can find the footage here.


I’ve put into effect a scenario outlining THE PHANTOM PLAN… If the elites are using meditation techniques & rituals to complete their own Magnum Opus, why is the mainstream public constantly strayed from this current cycle?  Instead, they’re influenced by Television…etc.
