Solidify Your Magikal Practice
This new aeon of Magik is for those fed up with Magik not having any sort of scientific proof behind it and the acute anti-Magikal establishments which dominate Occidental Society. It is for those who are sick of doubting themselves because other people who do not share their devotion are masking their ignorance under the curtain of science and skepticism. We have proof for ourselves and experiences of the Magikal kind are legitimate reasons. But that will not stop the persecution, particularly of the pseudoscience of psychiatry. Psychiatry has imprisoned those Shamans going through initiatory crisis, something which shamanic training can cure.
Magikal forces play their part in our everyday lives, whether people are aware of them or not. We see this happening. People's interactions and their instinctive responses to other people's auras. We see them when they duck away, seem to be annoyed by something etc. even when there is nothing seemingly present to cause this reaction. We see them instinctively engaging in the defense mechanisms of Folk Magik, best narrated in Chapter 7 of the 1895 book "The Evil Eye" by Frederick Thomas Elworthy: http://sacred-texts.com/evil/tee/img/27500.jpghttp://sacred-texts.com/evil/tee/tee11.htm and we see them not only in our everyday lives, but in television and media interviews as well. The only real difference is that we are aware and educated. We must prove this so that people will become more mindful abuse in this hidden aspect of society is kept to a minimum. But more importantly, so that society can get back in touch with the knowledge that previous ages have been blessed with to get things back to their natural order.
It's time to carve out a slice for Magik Users by dedicating Magik to being demonstrable. Not to appease our critics, but to give us more power as a culture so that our Magik can do more for us. Nothing is impossible with Magik. Magik has no limits, the only limits are on the Magik User themselves. Powerful Magik that can materialize aura is a matter of degree in Magik: degree in power and degree in precision. One does not need to have accomplished this feat in order to have satisfactory proof of this. One can practice and train and see that the potential for this degree of power can be attained by the direction the growth is headed in. This is the principle of correspondence, "As Above, So Below" as well as the principle of polarity. I welcome all who secretly have held the desire to engage in this kind of work, but didn't know how to start or wanted the courage to. Sleepers, awaken and break free of your chains. This blog is the first step to helping you and will be carried over into the publishing of a book which consists of philosophies and exercises. It is a combination of psionics and folk Magik that uses Art and various mind-body exercises as its form of training. It offers a new modality of Magik based on the Big Bang Theory and Plasma Cosmology.

Only that which is explicitly stated in a photo description or explicitly tagged as "my art" or "my work" is that which I claim to be mine. In all cases of explicitly claiming a piece of intellectual property as my own, you can rest assured that it will be so.
These are exercises that I came up with. They were built off of pre-existing training. I will be updating as frequently as possible. Memorize each exercise word-for-word and step-by-step before doing it and make sure you understand how each aspect of the exercise links to all other aspects of that same exercise that way you can practice without losing your ground. You practice these at your own risk if you are not in peak physical condition (meaning strength and flexibility) and/or emotionally unstable and not straight edge (complete abstinence from legal and illegal mind-altering substances, cigarettes and alcohol. If you are not straight edge then simply become so and put the money you would normally spend on that garbage in the bank. Reward yourself instead of destroying yourself).
Keep in Mind: The exercises contained herein have a peculiar quality to them — they actually work! Due to this peculiar quality, it is strongly advised that one aspiring to do these exercises takes into account the irrevocable changes that it will bring to one’s life. Seeing spirits and auras may just be an experiment to satisfy your curiosity. There’s nothing wrong with that, however, there is something wrong with ignoring the realities that success will bring. Just the notion of an experiment, by it’s very nature, implies that you don’t have a definite answer and the fact that you’re doing that experiment implies that you are aware (at some level) that you don’t have a definite answer to whether they work or not. However, the attitude of “I don’t believe in Magik, but I’ll do these exercises just so I can say they don’t work” should be avoided at all costs. If you’ve already made up your mind, then don’t risk the possibility of success — the results will catch you by surprise and you’ll find yourself in a position of helplessness to come to terms with what you see. Modern scientists, contrary to what you may have been taught absolutely do not have *any* concrete answers for what causes these experiences to happen. Furthermore, the scientists themselves aren’t the ones experiencing them and, thus, can only rely on the personal testimony of the experimental subjects or on fMRI readings of the brain, all of which have proven futile. Studies have shown that the Temporal Lobe of the brain does respond to religious symbolism, however the response to religious symbolism has nothing to do with Mystical and Magikal experiences since in all legitimate cases of being accidentally induced, religious symbolism was completely absent.
Contrary to the beliefs of modern science convincing yourself of these things is extremely difficult, due to the fact that the brains will filter out overly familiar commands, resulting in a dryness of the emotion. Those who are “convinced” of their religious beliefs do not “convince themselves” it is through regular immersion in a community gathering such as a church as well as the hypnotic, eloquently worded “holy books” which subliminally implant thoughts into one’s psyche by the very nature of reading them. This is not some clever conspiracy, but rather that those who wrote the books suffered from the same, hypnotic confusion that their manner of writing mirrors. The modern Magik User in most cases is *completely bereft* of such a community support, always left to draw their own conclusions (even when in a group) and is taught to question what they read (those who don’t are ridiculed as “fluffy bunnies”, “arm chair Occultists” and “dilettantes”: http://www.witchvox.com/va/dt_va.html?a=usfl&c=words&id=11214) and always have some sort of complaint about even the books who’s content they really liked (check out the book reviews on youtube if you don’t believe me), making the complete immersion necessary for true self-deception absolutely impossible. However, many scientists know close to nothing about this subculture (there are many subcultures that very few people know about. They’re not “secret” or “underground”, but they’re not well-advertised either. Many people have never heard of “extreme ironing”: http://youtu.be/7MV7-tMrbiM and the “audiophile”: http://youtu.be/m7ERMu825m4 subcultures. If you really want to be surprised, watch the “domino’s world championship”: http://youtu.be/boKmqf2kZHY it gets emotional!) they automatically fall back on what they’re accustomed to associating this subject with, having no idea how and why it doesn’t apply. In short, mentally prepare yourself for the possibility of success and consider that you will see auras and spirits everywhere at some point. Once this aspect of yourself becomes self-aware, it will develop and unfold. There is much more that contributes to seeing auras etc. than just practice and many of these contributing have nothing to do with eyesight. Most of them have to do with psychological wholesomeness. For example, reconciling a persisting internal conflict will make your senses more acute. If you had trouble with, math in high school, for example and, many years after college you still didn’t get how you made it through math class but through an unpredicted change of course in a conversation with someone, they word an underlying mathematical principle in a way that puts it in perspective for you, your abilities will increase. If you’ve had a rough experience, but have become a stronger person from it, either after it was over or through midway into the experience, your abilities will improve. If you’re perceptive you will understand that it was not one circumstance that “flipped the switch” on your powers, but the totality of the mental momentum built by the “in-the-moment” thoughts and emotions that transpired alongside the events of these experiences. The “aha!” and “eureka” moments were just that one extra push needed to finalize the development process. These studies are more complicated, then simply one-or-two experiments as they are an entire major branch of study, that do not fall under the umbrellas of biology, chemistry or physics, but rather along side them as an umbrella of their own, yet, like all of the umbrellas they’re interrelated to each one.
Note: Memorize each exercise word-for-word and step-by-step before doing it and make sure you understand how each aspect of the exercise links to all other aspect of that same exercise that way you can practice without losing your ground… or did I mention that already? =)
The purpose of this training: To prepare yourself for Aura Control and Mental and Emotional Control.
Consequences of neglecting this exercise: Potentially dangerous (especially if you live in a haunted location or are frequently surrounded by ambitious psychic vampires who are ravenous drainers). Your aura may go out of control, causing you to become exhausted and unmotivated, your thoughts may “slip” out of you, resulting in short term and long term memory loss (although this can never be permanent and the memory will be stronger when it’s regenerated or, in the case of being suppressed by possession it resurfaces). This training also increases the strength of the Aura Body, allowing you to use Aura without becoming ill. Practice it until you’ve reached Level 10 and don’t move on until you do.
Note: Mitigation is not relaxation or tension, it’s the gap between tension and relaxation. The greater that gap between tension and relaxation, the stronger the force generated by mitigation. On the level of the Aura, this allows you to open up your entire being since you can freely “map yourself” internally without getting spiraled (and thus having your awareness being swept away) into any active aura functions of the more immediately obvious internal functions. There is much more to you than you think. You will come to realize that you have a mind, a body and a spirit, but not only that — your mind has a mind body (which serves as sort of a skeletal structure for the aura body — but not in the form of a human skeleton, it’s a transparent silhouette with sketchy outlines of the features. On its own, it varies from clear to chalky or milky whitish-greyish as it expands and contracts. It expands and contracts its entire self, much in the same way an octopus can) and a spirit mind, your bio-body has a bio-mind (brain/nervous system) and a bio-spirit (the base level of aura) and that your spirit has a spirit body (the Magikal Muscles, which fit into the framework of the mind body — but not as actual muscle tissue does. It’s simple the aura harmonics which are a consistent series of colors interwoven within the spirit, adapted to the structure of the mind body. Part of it flows through the sketchy outlines of the mind body and the colors change with degree of tension placed on the aura body, similar to a mood ring) and a spirit mind (an inner knowing that is able to “read the blue prints of reality”, so-to-speak) and that if one of these major aspects of one’s being is unaware of itself, it will be “loose”, making you vulnerable. The Aura Body is a term used to designate the combined structure and function of the mind body and the spirit body.
A description will be given of each of these functionaries, what they mean and how they apply Magikally. It is true that I could be wrong about some aspect of the modelling. I would’ve liked to have conducted the maximum efficiency that research into these matters can provide, but unfortunately, that technology does not exist. Part of writing this is in hopes that such a technology will one day come about. Perhaps a scientist tests these techniques on themselves, discovers the reality and develops the technology. The ability to experience this phenomenon is necessary for such technology, that way, the right considerations for the technology can be taken into account. That aside, like Isaac Bonewitz wrote long before me, there will be words that will “follow me around” and thanks to his contributions to the Occult community, I am outlining these descriptions fully prepared for the day that I may be proven wrong. However, one thing I can say is this — this modelling is *not* arbitrary by any stretch of the imagination. It is based on patterns of observable, replicable and recurring phenomenon which happen in all traditions of all genuine Occult practice. In fact, even false Occult practices may lead to this phenomenon, because even some forms of false Occultism open the internal channels. What makes them “false” is that they do so improperly and unsafely and they don’t open all of the channels, only the “Mind Mind” and occasionally the “Spirit Mind”. They seldom touch the Bio-Spirit, which is the most important as far as everyday life is concerned. Furthermore, I would like to emphasize that while I may be wrong, my purpose is to bring awareness and inspire others to conduct scientific research into the Occult. This ancient knowledge is precious and we can’t lose it due to the ignorance of the “keepers of our knowledge”, which is not their fault, but the fault of the fundamentalist religions who give them reason for suspicion as well as those who fancy themselves as “skeptics”. One thing you must realize, is that no matter how stubbornly opposed someone may be to Magik, Auras, Spirits, Daemons, Gods etc., if irrefutable evidence is presented to them that matches the hypothesis given for their existence, natures etc., then even the hardheaded dum dums would be forced to grudgingly accept it. Even if they don’t, they’d lose the social backing of the scientific establishment and would become the new “deniers” of scientific fact. While it may be natural to deny the criticisms of those who mock and ridicule us, the best way to defeat them is not to go about pretending that what they say has no merit. Rather it’s to take an objective examination of what they present to us and ask ourselves if it’s true and if the changes worth making are actually worth making. If we do need to make a change, the way to beat them is to make that change. Rest assured, it will piss them off even more because now you have both the success you had before the change as well as the qualities that deem themselves “successful”, whereas they only have one. Remember this in all matters of conflict: If you can’t beat them, don’t join them. Instead, find out what makes them powerful, acquire that power for yourself and beat them with both your power and their power. One significant thing to remember is that they’ll never prove that this is all “self-deception”. Ever. That’s an opinion and nothing more than a sop to compensate for how the nature of Magik perplexes them.
In mundane terms, the word “body” refers to only the Bio-Body. The term “body” in the context of Occultism, refers to a form of a living organism (spirits included).
Everything has a form. That form may not be symmetrical or organized as we understand it, but it’s still a form. A flame burning still has the form of a flame burning and that can be counted as a body. The only error in this is if we attribute a certain degree of solidity to the concept of form an expect form not operate understand subtle, soft and static principles to be considered “form”. Understanding form this way doesn’t confuse, as one reading this would be tempted to think. Rather, it makes MORE sense of the world around you because you begin to look for the form of phenomenon that you would often pass off as “unsubstantiated fuzziness” and thus, too complicated to be made distinguishable.
The Mind will be defined as any functionary that has the properties of storing sensory experiences as data, being able to call forth such data by recreating the experience, the ability to become more precise in how accurately and intensely it copies the sensory experience as well as modifying sensory experiences by blending them together.
The most commonly known is the mind functionary is the Bio Mind, but there are more. Every mind, body and spiritus functionary also has each of the other. Just like well-known Bio Mind can register experiences from the cellular level of reality as data and modify and call forth that data, so too can the Spiritus Mind and Mind Mind register, modify and recall sensory experiences accumulated from their environments, which are the equivalent of the Mind and Spiritus functionaries of the cellular level of the environment experienced by the Bio Body.
The term “spiritus” will be used to distinguish the phenomenon from the term “spirit” which could mean ghost, nature spirit, Daemon or just about any proto-biological life form. The term “spiritus” is a Latin word means “breath” and that is part of why it has been chosen to describe the nature of the phenomenon. The spiritus of any functionary not only powers and animates that functionary, but it also connects the experiences to reality, giving them tangibility.
Have you ever had a superficial thought in your mind that you wanted to be a thought that allowed you to act in a way that caused change but couldn’t get it to be anything but a dry thought in your mind? Have you ever wondered how the thought can exist whether it’s a powerful driving force in yourself or not? The answer is the spiritus. Add a jolt of spiritus to any thought properly and you will have an unyielding charge. Practice this skill well, and combine it with the focus of the Mind Functionaries and you will be able to generate an indomitable charge with minimal effort.
The bio, or “biological” body is the most immediate and noticeable aspect of the person. It is a composite of every structure of matter available, up until its own point of existence. Magik demands that the bio-body be cared for and never neglected since it is the very center of Magikal practice so long as it is active. It is also the starting point and gateway to all other faculties of being. Contrary to mainstream religious teachings, the faculties responsible for Magik develop in proportion to the body and are not innately active. They need to settle in, which begins during puberty, reaches a turning point at age 21 and develop further every birthday afterwards. Improvements in the development of the faculties responsible for Magik and Mysticism begin at least a month or two prior to the birthday of the individual, build momentum and are normally unfolded the birthday morning of the individual. These faculties have remained a mystery for millenium and for a very good reason. They are not inherently designed to be used in life, they are functionaries that are specific to the afterlife. Using Magik is a way of “cheating” this, although in nature, there’s no such thing as “cheating”. In fact, it is *impossible* to cheat or “play games” nature. Nature’s laws are such, that any attempts to cheat them will automatically make you a victim of them. The “white-lighters” have it backwards. When we try to cheat nature, nature turns the tables on us and we find ourselves on the short end of that stick. Thus it can be concluded (if think that I just jumped to this conclusion, then it’s because you’ve never really bothered to think about how the reality you live in works.), while it may be specific to the afterlife, accessing in life is perfectly natural and not against the laws of nature in any way.
Note: The Bio Mind will be elaborated upon extensively due to the fact that it is the most fragile and most sensitive of all of the functionaries of being. The external factors that act upon it and how it develops and changed are much more impactful and harder to avoid. There will be more than just a narrative, but by reading this section it will operate on your mind to think in a certain way that is compatible to Magikal Workings. The good news about the bio-mind is that it is not completely malleable and all of the perceptions that align it with reality will not only expand it to where it cannot be modified back to its lesser self, but by expanding it will also fall into place and not move. This is because the verbal information matches the information attained from the other senses, which don’t have subjectivity. Subjectivity is exclusively the property of the analytical faculties, as the visceral and visual-perceptual and audio faculties have had no conscious variables added to their development. They are simply nature’s handwork, hardwired and set to observe without the mind adding anything or subtracting anything from the experiences. They behave this way even with the addition of the conscious, analytical faculties that have been added to them. The analytical faculties filter the sensory experiences, but whatever goes unnoticed, ignored, or modified is simply removed from the awareness of the individual. The underlying objectivity does not alter.
The Bio Mind, or Biological Mind, like the Bio Body is also of the utmost importance for Magikal Practice. Contrary to practically every modern school of thought on the subject known today (notably exceptions include Satanism, Chaos Magik and Experimental Magik), the physical is the emphasis for Magik, not the spiritual since the importance of Magik for the living human is in its ability to interact with the physical.
The Bio Mind is the collective composite of the sensory experiences but also the way those experiences are filtered and organized. At the time this is being written, there is a popular school of Occultism which states that *all Magik* is simply the result of the Bio Mind. This is completely inaccurate, due to the absolutist nature of the claim as well as how observable contradictions to this explanation are dismissed — anti-realism. In other words, this school purports that “Magik is all in your head, you just don’t know how big your head is”, which is a humorous way of saying that reality is not real or of a mental nature. Other schools use the obscure religious belief that all of reality is happening inside the head of a single God and that our intentions and thoughts have power because we are somehow influencing the god’s thoughts to bring these things into our lives. This comes from a crude misunderstanding of the Hermetic Principles, brought about by Jewish Thought and carried over into Esoteric Christianity. Naturally, these religious guesses are the result of confirmation bias and the notion that Occultists can believe whatever they want about their experiences, as if Magik wasn’t real. Thus, while one may be able to get results and can call themselves a good Magik User, it doesn’t automatically extend to being able to call oneself a good philosopher and a good scientist. The Magician is good at Magik, but the Wizard is a combination of Science, Philosophy and Alchemy (which itself, as Mark Stavish points is a combination of Magik, Astrology and Mysticism#).
The necessity for all of the previous information on the Bio Mind will be made clear at this point. Convincing yourself to believe anything won’t have an effect on how Magik works. It will always work, all of the time, but that doesn’t mean that it will work according to your expectations. A disorganized mind cannot properly perform Magik, and while the Magik may work, it will work in the manner that follows the confused blue print of the uncouthly organized mind that cast it forth. But that’s not all — Magik follows the laws of physics, the same ones as the mundane laws, however they apply so differently we normally don’t notice these applications because they’re unfamiliar to us. Furthermore, not only does Magik abide by the laws of physics it adapts itself to the nature of whatever physical target and goal it’s being directed toward and everything in between point A to point B of the realization of that goal, when done properly. When the bio mind is not ordered properly, it results in wild goose chases and events that are partially pleasant in nature but have no long lasting effect except for learning. It results in the introduction of new desirable things into your life that convince you that the Magik has worked to your benefit, however, it produces nothing of lasting value. That job you cast for which you lose after the first week through no fault of your own (or, if you’re really messed up in your mental organization, through being unrealistic and getting fired because you’re made to think that such counter-productive actions will mysteriously come together to produce a positive outcome that isn’t immediately obvious). Then, there’s that potential lover who seems to be infatuated with you, the beautiful person who you would like to be your lover and seems hurt when you ignore them who you end up chasing to no avail. These are common results of failure and why love and money spells are so looked down upon. Many Occultists, unaware of why their spells didn’t work, simply blame the type of spell itself for their failings. However, honest introspection will reveal that all of the events mimic the properties of a subconscious belief that is counter productive to the nature of successful acquisition of whatever you cast for.
Our society conditions us to believe many lies. Some of the lies we’re taught to accept as fact are those that purport that massive success is the result of “luck” and that “love” happens as a result of “destiny” and a fairy tale romance. With such an obvious fallacy in this widely spread lies and the harm that they cause, I’m surprised that James Randi hasn’t created a subsidiary of JREF dedicated to debunking fully mundane claims such as these. These perspectives on the subject manifest themselves in the aforementioned forms and are immediately traceable to the composition of their content, that’s why you get “signs” that counter-productive behaviors will lead to a successful result. It is that “random luck” perspective on money, which extends to the implications of the very ideas attached to “luck”. If you lose your new job (acquired via casting a spell) through no fault of your own, it stems from the belief that those who do not have such luck are condemned. The same reason why you feel the need to “chase” that beautiful lover, despite some of such actions being huge turn-offs and nothing that you would consider practical if Magik weren’t involved.
At this point, one will be tempted to think “I can see how such failed can be the bi-product of those thoughts, however, the way you describe them seems to only have vague traces of them.” This is true, but keep in mind that the other factors to consider when it comes to the workings of Magik — the laws of physics and the nature of the target. In fact, Magik is so subtle and so permeating, that without direct Magik, we’d have little way of knowing if there was any Magik happening at all, except after years of study and practice with good record keeping.
The way to organize the Bio Mind properly, is through something known as subjective synthesis, a term coined by Joseph C. Lisiewski Ph.D., a Theoretical Physicist and one of the best Occultists in the modern world. Dr. Lisiewski was a disciple of the famous Israel Regardi, who was also directly mentored by Aleister Crowley himself and learned the true Art of Magikal Evocation, which is a combination of the best evocation techniques and understandings of various cultures that was syncretized as a result of the Mechantilism Economic model that flourished during the Age of Exploration. Dr. Lisiewski points out 2 interesting facts that essential block proper Magikal practice in modern times. The first is the lack of depth of the modern mind and the second is the lack of a proper “subjective synthesis”, which is the state of every belief of the mind complimenting each other belief in the mind, causing no inconsistencies in one’s paradigm. In essence, the subconscious and the conscious mind of the castor are in complete harmony and taking for granted that the caster has properly thought out all of the details of the spell and gets themselves in the right state of mind to cast it, results will come dynamically and quickly beyond any possibility for coincidence.
At this point, it is important to point out that the ancient past did not have these problems of the mind. The world was a much bigger place and the way of life a nation lived was the only way they knew. Furthermore, older languages were based on meanings, not on letters. We know this because these languages still exist. Languages such as Arabic and Japanese adapt the formation of their letters to their meanings, not the other way around as the English Language does. Another obscurity, is the inconsistency of the English Language with its own lettering system. Look at older books from the middle ages (such as an unedited edition of “The Book of Courtier”) and you will see that the English letters work according to the alphabet. The sound “-shun” for example is spell as its pronounced instead of the unusual “-tion” which makes no sense whatsoever. The English Language also does not have the quality of being based on meaning, rather, the meaning of word is exclusively reliant on being adapted to the context in how it related to other words within that sentence. This is different than older languages, by which, the same word can be spelled in two different ways, pronounced the same exact way, but change its context based on spelling. In short, older languages were more based on the *reality* that they attempted to communicate, making the line between knowledge and understanding a thin one at best.
At the time of writing, I plan on expanding this singular blog post into an entire book. In that book, I will include a cosmology that is syncretized with Big Bang Theory and borrows from Plasma Cosmology. Many will argue that these two are incompatible, however, this is because they are probably thinking along the lines of the “all” principle of science, which states that all aspects of a model must match experimentation to be scientifically acceptable. I have even been called “uneducated” by some for speaking of this, however, this was done without my detractors knowing how I went about this. The fact is, I am not only educated in Big Bang Theory, but as a Maker and Do-It-Yourselfer, Plasma Engineering is one of my hobbies. Regardless of what they tells themselves, the students who simply sit in class and do nothing but listen to teacher teach, have nowhere near the education of a doer. It would’ve certainly been easier to simply syncretize Big Bang Theory with “Aura Harmonics and The Forces of Interaction”, however, I could not ignore the importance of Plasma Physics, which is how I learned to use Aura Properly in the first place. The workings Plasma is Nature’s instruction manual for how to use Aura Magik properly, this leads me to conclude that Aura is related to Plasma in some way. Interestingly enough, at the moment of this writing it has been less than a week that “The Magentic Highway” which provides support for Plasma Cosmology has been confirmed by Astrophysicists. The syncretism of modern Occultism and Science has been attempted before. However, it all such attempts have mostly been done by the New Age Movement and have failed simply due to lack of scientific knowledge. The point of this Cosmology is to provide a perfectly coherent subjective synthesis that not only makes sense of the practice within the book and the system, but makes sense of every legitimate system as they have not only been the result of my own experiences and experimentation, they have been extracted from over 1,000 good books on the subject written by real practitioners, most of which have the social perspective on the subject that was bereft of the New Age fabrications and the mistakes of the Early Chaos Magicians and more recently, Postmodernism. Otherwise, it comes from very helpful Occult Books such as “A Wanderer In The Spirit Lands” by Franchezzo, a thorough study of comparative theology and decoding the meanings of mystery religions through their stories. Save only for the books of the frauds, you will find this modality present within every Occult school and, like the Hermetic Principles (which are apart of this model) you will find them in modern science’s paradigms. This has the dual effect of reconciling modern science with the Magik, two things considered to be mutually exclusive in a world that has been bereft of a Magikal perspective for too long.
Now, many will tempted to reverse this principle to make it seem as if I am not working from the objectivity of Magik and simply “convincing” people and that’s why they’re experiencing what they’re experiencing. No attempt at being intelligent has ever failed so badly than the over-spammed logical fallacies of the James Randi-type skeptics. Observe the various victims of the New Age Movement and you will see that their Magik has failed them. Observe the pseudo-Wiccan philosophies and how many of these people are poor and helpless in society, despite many having all of the qualities of a successful person. If this were the case, then any system of Magik will work, even the dubious ones. Contrary to Postmodernism, this is not the case. The mind cannot simply take any system and make it work. Those who make such critiques, fail to realize that truly convincing yourself is a difficult feat. That there is a difference between what you believe and what you would like to believe. As someone who has been involved in various sales industries such as telemarketing, door-to-door to sales, still happily involved in direct sales with Amway, worked for Cutco Cutlery as their first ever job, I would like to inquire of the people who purport this nonsense as to why all of the people I was responsible for training didn’t become millionaires. You see, convincing yourself and changing your way of thinking is hugely emphasized in business cultures and is important in all business ventures in general. Take a look at all personal growth books and you’ll see this common factor in all of such books, good books and horribly bad ones. Keep in mind, we don’t just provide them with books. We have weekly and bi-weekly meetings to keep them motivated and without quarterly meetings where 20,000 + individuals from all over the nation come to gather for a full weekend of being rejuvenated with excitement and motivation, each of the 20,000 being charged by the excitement of the speakers and everyone else who is screaming loud many business that have been successful and consistently increasing profits each year for more than half-a-century would go out of business within 2-years.
The truth is, convincing yourself “in spite of evidence” *to the point where you truly believe what you tell yourself* is extremely difficult. The fundamentalist religions and radical cult groups of the world have been so successful in brainwashing and zombifying their adherents that they only make it look easy. It’s not, it’s a high maintenance effort that requires constant reinforcing. Think of it as standing naked in a snowstorm and pouring hot water on yourself to warm up. Sure, you’ll feel warmer for a little bit, but once that temporary relief expires, you’ll be even colder. Of course, you could keep pouring hot water on yourself, but when the well runs dry you’re left with no choice but to face the music and freeze to death. The fact is, the bio mind is not as inherently prone to rejecting reality as we have been led to think. It is only the *conscious awareness*, which is not the mind as a whole that requires the most work. This is because the faculty of conscious awareness in humans is so new that we don’t fully know how to use it yet. However, as I mentioned, self-convincing is unnecessary when one understands how and why things are. However, this does not mean that fictional beliefs cannot harmoniously co-exist with this innate understanding of reality. Dr. Lisiewski is a good example of this. He is a professing Catholic, who’s mindset is exactly like that of a Magik User from the middle ages. However, these beliefs have their foundation in documenting the objective reality of Magik. In essence, fiction can be used to add spice and fun to Magik.
Now, an astute reader would read this and say “Yes, it’s true that the sales people you speak of have trouble convincing themselves of success. But is that a grounds to say that convincing yourself is hard? Could it be attributed to the fact that their society convinces them of the contrary and that even though they see success all around them, they don’t believe it will work?” An excellent question coming from an excellent observation. The truth is — no. The most successful people who stick around are those who understand the objective factors that contribute to success. I have spent years without reading a book or listening to a CD without ever believing that my business will never work because of some few months I initially took to understand the business model and the teachings of the business. I understood how and why my business model worked and how and why to believe in my success and how and why to be a happy person only once and that’s why I have remained so, even while being around people who were just the opposite of that without any comfort or support for those years. In fact, the spirits that were haunting me at the time with the help of such people were so desperate, that they had to block these memories from me by possessing those parts of my mind, since no “speaking into my mind” had any significant effect, not even the sudden drop in happiness which would normally occur with just the presence of these horrible monsters. These monsters, were not mere human ghosts, they of the Daemon type spirits and were so horrible and menacing that without even acting, they could completely bring down even the most excited room of people just by dropping in. When they acted, they would completely overkill any excitement or happiness, since the movements that come from their interactions emit aura harmonics of intensity. Those monsters were tanks with cannons having exceedingly high defenses and offenses compared to your common Wight, but even they had to work hard for years to penetrate my understanding and if not for negatively influencing my environment so that I was forced to live with my parents with no escape they would’ve never had the chance to act on me sufficiently enough to get through to me. This is because understanding allowed me to change my life and my entire lifestyle was constantly exhibiting behaviors and results of a successful person. And not just me, but everyone I have ever taught who has learned this understanding has been able to the same. Not only is understanding of objective reality and even subjective cause-and-effect (ie. Think you can, think you can’t either way you’re right) is easier integrated into the mind, it’s much easier to remind someone of it in case they forget it.
The salesperson who wants to embark on a successful journey must no doubt overcome their own conditioning and that conditioning is an obstacle. No doubt. However, there is more to say about this subject than just that. There is a stronger point to be made for the objectivity of Magik, an element that is *not* present in the case of the salesperson. The Modern Magik User is not *only* in the same position of the salesperson, they’re in an even tighter situation. Not only is what their society their society teaches them completely wrong about the subject of Magik, but that Western Society doesn’t even teach the opposite of proper Magik. A purely Magikal paradigm is so foreign to Occidental Culture, that the status quo which indoctrinates the Modern Magik User isn’t even capable of wrapping its mind around a purely Magikal paradigm without falling back on some misconception which prevents one from understanding it in totality. This fact however, is miniscule to presenting the case for the objectivity of Magik when you consider the fact that one’s beliefs are completely changed due to the observable results that come from practice. Even the biggest proponent of the psychology and information paradigms doesn’t truly believe that spirits are “all psychological”, though they may be comfortable with that form of modelling. In my future book, I will dedicate a chapter to this aspect of the subject, where I start off posting numerous consecutive quotes from published books and then proceed to point out that although each and every single one of those quotes is consistent with an underlying order, the bulk of the respective books they were taken from have entirely different types of modelling that are contrary to each paradigms from the other books and that the quotes are not taken out of context. This goes back to the “underlying objectivity” that comes from the unconscious acceptance of reality. It sometimes pokes its head out to the surface of consciousness once in a while and inserts its objective information within the holes and fragments of an inconsistent or inaccurate Occult paradigm. But not only that, I can take excerpts from business books, science books etc. which this underlying understanding pokes its head out. Furthermore, the innate sense of objectivity is linked to the spiritual unfolding that takes place as a result of Magikal development. Interestingly enough, the support for this is also an example of this! Observations of the patterns of growth of Magik aside, Joseph C. Lisiewski clarifies that “spiritual unfolding” is the natural state of successful Magik not “spiritual growth”, which embodies it into the conscious awareness of anyone who has experienced this unfolding happening within them for a significant amount of time. That’s not all, the example of this objective understanding “poking its head out from time-to-time” is what caused this insightful youtube user to model it the same way in her video: (skip to 21:03) http://youtu.be/hxm4bVnTPAE an interesting insight is that the example she gives with composting is a direct narration of this pattern. What I’ve done, is simply extact those basic essentials from all of the symbols and words that cloak them. In other words, I have extracted the raw workings of Magik and the predictable patterns that Magik follows; that all people who do this stuff seriously experience and worded them for plain speaking. Furthermore, Charlie (the woman in the video) also points out that “the signs are always there, we just don’t pay attention to them” which is simply pointing towards the innate objectivity. In fact, it was the futility of applying my go-getter attitude that first opened my eyes to the realities of Magik. Rose Rosetree dedicates a section to this in her book “Empowered by Empathy”. The interesting part of this is, Rose Rosetree is a fundamentalist Evangelical Christian, but even the most zealous subscriber of the most dubious paradigm cannot ignore the practicality of working with the nature of Magik, which says something. To further amuse you, consider that in “Urban Voodoo: A Beginner’s Guide to Afro-Carribean Magick” by Christopher S. Hyatt Ph.D. and S. Jason Black, the same underlying principle is mentioned regarding a the use of a pendulum. If you’ve read that book (if not, read it ASAP) you’ll find that only are Dr. Hyatt and Mr. Black in disagreement with Fundamentalist Christianity, they spend a significant portion of the book mocking the entire structure of the consensus of fundamentalist Christianity and completely tearing it apart. You can find this across the board of Occultists who practice and everything else in my book and in my system is just those raw essentials narrated as well as the seven Hermetic Principles, the Five Elements of Occidental Alchemy and the Five Elements of Taoist Alchemy demystified and clarified and related to each other.
In order to properly see your mystical experiences, you must learn to train the bio mind by keeping still mentally, no matter what kinds of emotions are flowing through you.
The Bio Spiritus is sometimes called the “Etheric Body”. It is responsible for connecting humans to their sensory experiences whether mundane or Mystikal. This is the part that psychic vampyres attack and why one can feel a hollow depression if they’re drained for too long. Different from an actual psychological problem, the only time one feels this depression is when they’re around the vampyr and when they’re safely away from the vampyre that is linked to them, they find themselves recovering quickly. This is also related to the other function of the Bio Spiritus, which is to processes the Aura emissions of the Aura Body in the bio body. On an animal, the Bio Spiritus is tied in to the DNA and can be used as the back drop to cure the body. However, on a non-animal or non-biological substance, the aura body changes in tandem with the form if it changes. For example, if a human being loses a limb, enough Magikal competence can revive it by materializing a new one through the aura limb, using the cells of the shoulder to reconstruct it according to the muscle memory. The Bio Spritus is also responsible for the phenomenon known as “the phantom limb”, which is the result of a temporary heightened awareness rather than a hallucination. This can be tested by moving the phantom limb. This is known due to the fact that there are people who’s aura bodies, and thus, bio spiritus is not of human origin and is shaped differently, often having the body parts of their true forms such as ears, wings and tails. There are many different types of Otherkin and, while they seldom fit into any strict category of a “Mythological creature”, they still borrow human terminology to identify. These people are known as “Otherkin”. Otherkin are able to move their phantom limbs and also may exhibit behavioral traits of their true selves that are not normal human traits. Some people who identify as “Otherkin” simply see it as psychological. These people, most likely are not true Otherkin but rather humans who have inherited an atavism, since ancient tribal humans used to act like wolves etc. The one who is writing this is a Daemonkin, belonging to a specific type known as a “Majinkin”. In my book, there will be a lot more drawings and thus, less descriptions will be necessary.
This is a common aspect of Magik. It is the part of the self that goes into Astral Projection, the part that spirits speak to when not yet linked to or manifest and operates like some sort of movie projector, depicting a symbolic scenario to the senses that the practitioner cannot participate in. Only observe. When made conscious, it can be used to call forth memories of past experiences, even if your bio mind does not remember them.
The Mind Spiritus is responsible for directing and regulating the tempo and the flow of your Aura Harmonics as it transitions from one functionary to another. Accessed by happenstance, the caster finds himself observing the physical flow of aura, the aura body of the objects around them (which look more real, by comparison), the Aura Body of a person, or a spiritual being objectively, and snaps out of it when their bio mind becomes conscious of the experience. However, there is an interval of awareness that allows the bio mind to see what is going on, leading the person to believe it was a dream or a hallucination. However, since it’s properties are outside of the range of the possible collective visual sensory possible on the biosphere, this canned explanation can be counted as an impossibility. It would be akin to hallucinating a new color. This only becomes clear when one observes virtual simulations of hallucinations and realizes that what psychiatrists and scientists are addressing is a completely different phenomenon that they confuse as the same out of ignorance.
It is not that what the observer who incidentally accesses his Mind Spiritus to transition to his other faculties sees disappears. It’s that they lose their grip on the faculties that put them in touch with that aspect of reality. However, when they learn to grasp it, transitioning becomes easy and they can experience it consistently. When we can experience the world of Magik consistently and consciously, we can document it scientifically.
The Spiritus Mind is the functionary responsible for internal knowing, epiphanies etc. In this day and age, it is normally unconscious and often accessed by spirits while unconscious. When made conscious, it can be used actively instead of simply being limited to being passive and occasional. When used actively, it can read the truth into anything and even solve mysteries of the universe, because it can see on the level of the hidden aspects of the universe itself. It’s ability can be described metaphorically as “reading the blue prints of reality.” I can be called upon to gain insights into arcane matters.
Aura Body is a term that is used to address the combination of the Spiritus Body and the Mind Body.
Magikal Muscles is a term general term used to address any and all Magikal functionaries as a convenience for not having to list all of them. Each and Every functionary has its own set of Magikal Muscles that expand and contract together in an interconnected manner similar to distinct muscle groups of the Bio Body.
Normally called “Visualization” in Magik, however, it can also be synonymous with “imagination” and can be confusing because mere imagination doesn’t meet the demands of effective Magikal practice. Thus, I felt more precise terminology was called for. Visual Re-Creation is the recreating the image of a pre-existing visual stimulus or stimuli that you’ve already memorized perfectly. Visual creation is the like painting your imagination. You begin with a precise concept of what you want to visually create and you put it together in your bio mind. With enough practice at this, you can develop a photographic memory. Not hard to imagine that it could lead to this, considering the nature of the exercise.
Mental Re-Creation is the precise reconstruction of any stimulus you’ve experienced, even the stimulus of the higher faculties or experiences in astral projection. It works by memorizing all of the stimulus visual, audio etc. and reconstructing it in your bio mind. You can also visually recreate feelings by themselves, with no other stimulus attached to the feeling. The key to this training is to make the feeling more intense in your bio mind. If you create it intensely and vividly enough, you can physically feel it. You can try this in a light altered state of consciousness to maximize results.
Wolff’s Law is a term used in the study of anatomy and physiology. It states that when a bone is overloaded with exertion, that the bone will remodel itself over time to meet to rise to the challenge of the demand.
Your Magikal Muscles are the same way. In fact, they go even further. If a thought, skill or memory is destroyed or usurped from you by an attacking Magikal Being or Spellcaster, the thought, memory or skill will reform itself and be stronger even if there was nothing left of it. This could take time, however.
The purpose of much of this training is to allow for the reformation of the functionaries in a matter that makes them much, much stronger and more suited for the task.
Just like Wolf’s Law and Davis’ Law apply to the muscles and skeletal system of the Bio-Body, they also apply to the other functionaries. These functionaries can be made denser and more efficient if trained properly. All functionaries except for the Bio Functionaries are chain reactions developed as a result of the forces of interaction interacting within themselves.
Ergonomics is the applied science of designing equipment that reduces discomfort or fatigue. Aura Ergonomics, then, is the applied science of using aura in the smoothest, most efficient way possible. This is the purpose of every exercise in your training. To practice *properly* so that everything you do is ergonomic. After you get to this level, you have attained a level of proficiency to do what you like. In essence, you have learned the rules and now you can break them properly.
The Purpose of this Exercise: Mitigating Breath allows for adjusting and re-stabilizing aura when it’s being utilized.
The consequences of neglecting proficiency in this skill set and moving on to more advanced training prematurely: Having residue Aura stick to your Aura Field, resulting in an imbalance in your aura field which will affect performance in everyday life as well as attract nasty Aura Parasites to you like flies to dung.
Close your mouth then breath in through your nose, carrying the breath up through your nasal cavity so that the breath passes through the Magik Eye and then rhythmically direct it down to the bottom of your lungs. Hold for five counts, then release in full. After you have become skilled in this, breathe in half way, pause your breathing and while holding your breath, count to five in your head and continue breathing in without letting go of the air you’ve taken prior to the count of five then release. What you’ve just done is called a mitigated breath. When you can do five mitigated breaths in a row without letting go of your breath during the pauses you have reach proficiency.
Muscle mitigation is the ability to control your muscles without putting full tension and without relaxing all of the way. It’s partial tension that can be increased as far as full tension and relaxed so much that it produces a calm euphoria. It is a skill that is transposed into all matters of Aura control and is therefore necessary to master before doing Aura. It is superior to Yoga as a Magikal prerequisite, as it is direct and gets the job done. It relies on tensing, reverse tensing and regulating tension to different limbs. Without it, no further training in Aura Magik can adequately be pursued. You ignore this fact at the risk of your health and sanity.
The greater the range between full tension and relaxation, the more accomplished one is at this skill. The way to test your mitigation skill is to tense your muscles as little as you can. The greater the “jittering” of the muscles, the more accomplished you are. Also, the greater control you have your muscles is determined by the subtlety in which you can tense smaller muscle groups without triggering larger muscles groups. Be prepared to do nothing but tensing, reverse tensing and tension regulation to different limbs for a good few months. All muscles must be tensed, not just the ones in the arms and the legs, but all of the muscles in the head, including the temples and the very top of the cranium (which can be done by smiling wide, revealing teeth and gums and clenching the jaw tight, then closing the eyelids and applying pressure by wrinkling the brow on the forehead.)
The purpose of this exercise: To Awaken the Bio Spiritus and prepare the body for reverse tensing
The consequences of stinting in gaining proficiency in this skill and/or moving on to more advanced training prematurely: Depending on how far you get in this training before your proficiency matures, it could result in having too much energy which causes body spasms or having your other functionaries being active yet feeling suffocated.
Note: You should never move on to more advanced training until you can tense every skeletal muscle in your entire bio body with no trouble. This means that you can do it while walking and let go and transition to tensing another muscle group without the risk of pulling a muscle.
It is not advised that you try this from this blog alone. In my book, I will have numerous pictures on what stances to take in drawing to target each muscle group. But if you must, it is advised that you train in contortion to achieve full body flexibility and sufficient strength before attempting to do this. There will be a flexibility training manual that covers exercises to make one’s body flexible with no equipment necessary — just stretching poses.
Start with your arms if you want an idea. Assume a stance with hips shoulder-width apart which means that if someone were to draw two parallel lines starting from your shoulders that your hips will be in line with them: http://18puttsdotcom2.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/posture-3.jpg However, you should stand upright, not bent over: http://www.gilmanstudio.com/courses/push_hands/photos/lesson2/stance2.jpg yes, like that. Haha! Now, ball up a fist and extend your arms out in front as far as they can go of you with your curled fingers facing inward (in other words, you should be able to see your thumbs and fingers balled up, not your knuckles). Now, use your butt to tuck your tailbone inwards and carry over that motion into bending the entire backbone with your arms still fully extended outwards so that your body naturally falls into a squatted stance. Next, pull your arms inwards to flex your biceps and flex them as hard as you can. Now, with your biceps still flexed, tighten the grip on fingers as best as tight as they can possibly go. This should cause your arm to jitter. The point is to keep your arms still so that the only movement is the jittering. Hold this for as long as you can and increase it until pressure builds up in your arms so much that you feel that you can’t take it anymore. Don’t let go at this stage, but persist and eventually the pressure will release and your arms will feel light. In some cases they may feel numb. At this point, you have mitigated your muscles further. Each time you get push beyond this breaking point and feel the lightness release, you will have further trained you muscles to be mitigated.
To get out of the pose, simply reverse the process. Let your muscles loose, put your arms all the way out and use your lower back and butt to untuck your tailbone, move your vertabrae back into an upright shoulder-width stance and put your arms to your side like a soldier standing.
Note: When doing this on the abs, the throat etc. you’ll find that pressure will build up inside of your head. This could cause you to pass out, so make sure that you have a safe place to fall. Don’t worry about the passing out, unless you have a specific health condition, it won’t be a big deal. However by reading anything on this blog and applying it, you consent to practice at your own risk and can hold no one responsible but yourself.
Condensing the Bio Spiritus
The purpose of this exercise: To condense the Bio Spiritus so that it’s not easily harmed.
The consequences of stinting in gaining proficiency in this exercise and/or moving onto more advanced training prematurely: A weak Bio Spiritus which can be damaged or drained easily and may leak aura. This can cause feelings of deep depression and fatigue.
This is exercise should only be undergone after one has attained proficiency in mastering tensing training. In my book each exercise will have a chart from levels 1-10 that will describe each stage of development and provide as an honest gauge for the student to examine the realities of their competence. This chart is not arbitrary, it was modeled as a result of observing and recording the development of my apprentices and a concise description will be given for what each level is for each one of these charts. Each exercise will have its own chart. As you can probably infer, it will be a very thorough, yet concise manual.
To condense your Bio Spiritus, you start by doing the tensing exercise above. However, the goal is to cool down the jittering by taking, powerful, long mitigated breaths. You keep tensing through those breaths so that the use of the long and powerful mitigated breath cools down the jittering. As you continue to hold the pose, you will find your muscles are building up momentum and start jittering again. When they build up to jittering as rapidly as possible, then you take the mitigated breath again. This further condenses the Bio Spiritus. It may feel that the degree of condensation doesn’t change significantly, if it all, but keep at it and always take extra long breaths and breath out with as much force as you can muster for good measure.
Bio Mind Training
The Bio Mind Training is too extensive to list here. The purpose of it however, is very simple: To develop hypersensory perception and high degrees of metacognition. This will be included in the book I’m writing and will include exercises and practice projects regarding art, music, science and others. The very book itself with be worded in a way that operates on the readers mind which develops hypersensory perception and metacognition.
A very high level of ability to perceive big details, small details and how the big details and small details interrelate with each other or whether one spectrum of big details and small details interrelate with another spectrum of big details and small details and how they differ without mental exhaustion.
Self-knowledge. Knowledge of one’s own thought process and how to regulate it. It also includes knowledge of how to use memory strategies and how as well as when to use them.
NOTE: Hypersensory Perception and high degrees of Metacognition as well as Metamemory (knowledge of mnemonic techniques) are the trademarks of a skilled Occultist and are the keys to being a true Mystic. Without proper development, the aspirant could risks being mired in delusion.
Mind Eye Coordination Training
The purpose of this exercise: To increase overall focus by using a mental skill set rarely used.
The consequences of stinting on gaining proficiency in this training and/or moving onto more advanced training prematurely: The aura not being able to keep up with the body/aura being unfocused.
This one is quite simple. You start by visually create a colored line moving along the edges of an object. Pick a color to use before you begin (and stick with it). I like to start with red, but you can choose any color you want. Get an object, preferably an Athame, a sword (wooden or metal), a dagger or just a regular kitchen knife and move your visually trace the edge. Keep in mind, your eyes are not making physical contact with the object, they are simply moving to mimic the shape of the object (sadly, I do have to include this) . As they move, visually create a line moving around the object with you in tandem with your eye movements. The point is to train your mind so that the colored line should not be faster than the motion of your eyes, nor should the motion of the eyes be faster than the line. The visual creation of the line should be the result of your eye moving.
Aura Sight #1
Acquire a piece of 14 X 17 inch bristol board, you can buy a pad at any art supply store and an apple. If you have white walls disregard the bristol board. Take the sheet of white bristol board and position it on the floor if you don’t have white walls in your house (some people dedicate their entire houses to their favorite bands and have nothing but posters and skateboarding stickers which serve collectively serve the function of very decorative wall paper). Make sure that the floor is clear of any distractions, pick up anything surrounding the spot, clean up any dust etc. and make sure that it’s in a place where you can cast the least amount of shadows on it by standing further back from the bristol board. Standing over the bristol board with apple in hand, stare down at it and place the apple in between your eyes. With the apple blocking your view, keep your eyes still and focus your mental attention on the white of the bristol board behind it. If you have white walls transpose the same understanding of the bristol board and simply place the apple on a desk or simply hold it up in front of you, making sure that you hold the bottom of the apple using only your thumb and index fingers then, tucking your elbow into your lower ribs and move the arm flexor attached to that elbow so that the middle of the apple is paralleled to the tip of your nose. This manner of holding the apple ensures that your hands won’t alter the way your eyes move. You should see a transparent filamentous lining around the aura that has properties of transparent viscous fluid (think of honey with no color) that seems to glow, but in a very weak and subtle way. If you have trouble with the eye aspects of this exercise, try the baby step.
Baby Step for Aura Sight #1:
The purpose of this exercise: It’s a good exercise to awaken powers on its own and can even aid in materialization of aura, but in this case, it is designed to aid you in being able to focus on the white board in Aura Sight #1. This exercise was taught to me by a Tai Chi Master.
Sit down on a floor with a carpet. Make sure that there is nothing distracting around you. Pick up any thing that could be on the floor or in a corner that could distract. If this is unavoidable, then you have to rely on sheer determination to just focus only on the task at hand and do the exercise. Sit cross-legged style maintaining upright posture and a straight spine on a space on the floor that is a safe distance from any walls and stare down, directly at the rug. While staring at the rug, using the corner of your eyes, look at all four corners of the room at the same time from this position. Do this until the details of the rug disappear (look as if they’re integrated).
A modification of this exercise, is to put your palms out in front of you, keeping them as far away from your eyes as your arms will take them and then moving them towards the very edge of your vision while still keeping them in partial view. Keep your eyes focused forward and stare at each palm (both at the same time) with its respective eye without moving your pupils.
Aura Sight #2
This exercise is the same as Aura Seeing one, except you put your hands out in front of your face so that the very tip of your middle finger is parallel to your Magik Eye (the spot right in between your eyes, just before the bridge of your nose begins) and spread your fingers out as wide as possible. Keeping your arm in position, open your eyes as wide as they’ll open then, tuck your chin under and apply tension to the tuck (this frees up the shoulder allowing for better range of motion), then using the ball of the shoulder while keep the rest of the arm still, tuck the shoulder into the upper part of the pec or boob (depending on gender) and apply tension to the tuck (this means using the same tucking motion to tuck it hard so that it presses into the peck or breast, it’s not a separate step in its own right, but rather a way to apply the step). Then, while keeping tension on the shoulder, relax tension on the tucked in chin (this means that you lift the chin up using the vertebrae on the back of your neck so that there is no pressure being put on the collar bone while simultaneously keeping it close to collar bone, just not close enough to apply pressure) and then slightly positioning your neck so that your level of vision is just above the tip of your middle finger. As with Aura Sight #1 keep the position of your eyes and muscles still while staring focusing your conscious attention on the white. This exercise requires full body muscle mitigation to perform properly.
Advanced Aura Seeing Exercise:
The purpose of this exercise: To speed up your development in seeing full Auras.
Note: You should do this exercise after being able to see the base level of Aura, which is a clear lining around the object effortlessly and with multiple colored backgrounds (aka you don’t need to rely solely on a white background).
If your bedroom has a ceiling that is just one color of paint (as most are, though I have seen people paint their ceilings to look like the milky way), then lay down in your bed, put your hands out in front of you, back facing your eyesight, so you can see both of them. Then spread your fingers as wide as you can. While keeping your hands in position, use your shoulders to put your thumbs together, at this point, they should be like two “L’s” faced in opposing directions touching each other. Now, using your shoulders again, while remaining in position, move your hands slightly apart, creating a bit of space between the thumbs. Now, squint your eyes to obscure the visual details on the back of your hand. Using your shoulders again, move your arms up-and-down, but only slightly so that they remain in full sight. Keep your eyes still and don’t let the grasp on your squinting slip. If you have trouble with this do the “Eye Control” exercise as a baby step.
As you develop in seeing auras, you will be able to see colors and even your own aura body until you can see the entire aura that is emitted from everything and the entire Aura bodies of everything. As your sensory improves, so does the awareness of these aspects of yourself and when you begin to see how aura operates, you can open the internal channels which allow to materialize it for people who can’t see it. However, until you learn to make your memory of form, color and feeling precise, it is unwise to try to materialize aura forms. It’s better to learn how to draw and sculpt, two basic skills I will teach you. That way you can undergo the learning curve of forming your creations safely. However, you must realize that these skills are not just “tuning forks”, you must not only learn to do them, you must learn to do them properly. Be as OCD as possible with them. If you don’t have that trait, fear not. Practice the way I teach you and you’ll inherit it. =)
Eye Control Exercise:
Roll your eyes
1. Roll your eyes all the way around clockwise for 1 set of 20 reps, take a rest, then roll them counter clockwise for another 20 reps. The more controlled this motion is, the more skilled you are at it.
2. Roll your eyes in all four directions, starting from the middle and up to North and hold them there. Count to three, then move onto East and hold them there. Count to three again, then Move onto west, then hold them. Finally, move onto North, hold them in that position and count to three. Do this for 1 set of 10 reps (for starters) and when you come full circle back to North, direct your eye back to the center, then close your eyes tightly, release tension on your face without opening your eyes in order to ground before opening your eyes. After 10 reps, do the same exercise for another 10, starting at South and working counter clockwise for another 10 reps, ending at South and doing the same ground exercise.
3. Is the same exercise as 2, but this time practice by going from North, to North East, To East, To South East, To South West, To West, To North West and North for 1 set of 5 reps to start off, then do the same grounding exercise as exercise 2, *but* put less tension on your face than in exercise 2 and hold it for *longer* before releasing.
4. Eyelid control
Slightly squint your eyes hold it for a count of three, then slightly squint again and hold for a count of three. Repeat until your eyes are closed and when they are closed, pucker out your lips, hold the puckering position and then put them together and, while maintaining that position smile very wide so that you carry your lips into a being completely pressed together into that smile. Then, squint your eyes as if you intended to press them into your cheek bones. Keep that position and slowly open your eyelids. You should feel a release in your cheek bones. Admittedly, this exercise does more than just allow you to control your eyelids, that work should’ve been done with the muscle tensing training, but still persist and do 2 sets of 5-10 reps.
Awakening the Mind Body and Mind Mind
The purpose of this exercise: To make the Mind Body and The Mind Mind self aware, which in turn makes their Magikal Muscles active. This in turn makes the Bio Mind much more clear and manageable.
The consequences of neglecting this exercise and moving onto more advanced training prematurely: Having the Mind Body and Mind Mind unaware is dangerous during Magikal Practice. It can result in hypersensitivity and chronic fatigue and haphazard and disturbing images appearing to you: http://youtu.be/1ycWJhunh-A Symptoms can resemble schizophrenia, but with the awakening of the Mind Body and the Mind Mind, the symptoms begin to be manageable due to the resistance that the Magikal Muscles allow for and will completely disappear since with awareness, comes active processes which are able to observe the source of these messages whether from the self or from another.
This exercise requires a good pressure sense and visual memory and focus skills. Visual memory allows you to resemble precisely, focus allows you to hold that visualization in place for a long time. The key to doing this exercise relies on the understanding of the difference between the roles of the Bio Mind and the Aura Body. The Bio Mind is what’s responsible for thinking the image. The Aura Body is what sees and interprets the image that the Bio Mind is thinking up. It also does the same for words and the bundles of images and words which are put together to form an interpretation of a previous event. It’s important to think up an image that does not have personal significance for the purposes of this exercise.
After you have the image held in your mind, feel out the spacial boundary between the part of yourself that’s thinking up the image and the part of yourself that is seeing and interpreting the image being thought up. Just by feeling out that dividing line your Bio Mind becomes aware of it and in turn, a chain reaction causes the Aura Body to become self aware because it analyses the awareness of the Bio Mind. Being one with a sense of humor, especially in irony, I chuckle in the back of my head at the though that this is the opposite of a “double bind”, and more like a “double disentangle”.
If you have trouble with this, as with everything in this system, start with the faculties of the Bio Body and Bio Mind as the gateway to accessing your other functionaries with this baby step exercise:
Kinesthetic Awareness and Pressure Sense Training:
The purpose of this training: To hone pressure sense and Kinesthetic Awareness, making it more acute and reliable in terms of accuracy. Increases creative ability as an added bonus.
Consequences of neglecting this training and moving on to more advances training prematurely: Currently unknown since neither I nor any one of my apprentices were incapable of accessing their Mind Body and Mind Mind without this training as a gateway.
Take your fingertips and place them under the underside of a table or flat surface. The key is to be able to feel out where your fingers are pressing against the surface of the underside of the table and where the surface of the table itself. In fact, this it is one of Newton’s observations and the inspiration for his second law of motion, the law of inertia. If I push open a door, the surface of my hand is up against the surface of the door, but the surface of the door is also pressing against my hand. The reason the door opens is because the force of the hand, generated by the rest of the arm that is working in unision with the hand, is greater than the force of the door pushing up against my hand. Understanding the relationship between two surfaces touching is the key to understanding Pressure Sense and Kinesthetic Awareness training. If the feeling between these boundaries are not crystal clear, then you must keep practicing, increasing the amount of time you devote to each session until they do become crystal clear. This will not result in synesthesia or overly active empathy for those who have that concern. These two different senses are already subtly clumped together into the same experience and you wouldn’t want it any other way and empathy is a different faculty. If anything, overly active empathy is the result of one’s empathetic ability not being keen enough to make dynamic distinctions between the feeler and what’s being felt.
I strongly recommend a translated and reprinted copy of “Principa” by Sir Isaac Newton if you haven’t read it. Keep in mind that it’s outdated and has been replaced by Einstein’s General Relativity, a much more accurate and less-restrictive model with evidence to back it up (proving once again how awesome reality is).
If you’re a rugged individual who lives in the woods, then instructions to make a table will be found in the “recipes and techniques for people who were inspired to live off of the grid after reading this” in the finalized book adaptation of this system (after all, being able to materialize Magik pretty much assures that you can hunt without a gun and have your meat cooked and hunted by blasting lightening at your prey and why the heck would you want to live on the grid and deal with the stresses when you can simply materialize whatever food you want using your aura?) For now, it’s safe to assume that people living off of the grid don’t have internet access and properly have developed much of what I’m talking about naturally and gradually.
Selective Attention Training:
Psychiatrists make the general populace feel guilty for having selective attention. In truth, this is the key to mastering your mind, something Psychiatrists have a great disdain for, so if someone has managed to dupe you into thinking that selective attention is some sort of “delusional thinking”, then this is your chance to break free.
The selective attention I speak of isn’t confirmation bias — it actually deals with the subject of paying attention. It’s the ability to grasp the mechanism of attention itself and direct it to what you want. This also includes the ability to have selective attention or not to have selective attention. You can release your selective attention by letting go of the mechanism, but still have it in your palm to be squeezed at any time, so to speak.
Mentally create yourself as a colored or black and white work of art in an environment that appeals to you. It could be a forest. What is your posture? Are you standing, sitting etc.? Assume that posture and hold it as if you were the painting. As if you neither live nor die, just remain frozen for eternity as a painting.
To be able to mentally immerse yourself in fantasy is the first step of controlling your mind. However, keep your fantasies and their content a secret from others. There is no shortage of angry, dissatisfied, depraved individuals who will ignore the fact that you’re doing an exercise and will attempt to tell you to “bring yourself back to reality” because of their own insecurities. Secrecy is vital. Don’t butt heads until you develop power. After you can demonstrate your power, don’t do it when ask. Instead, cast either a good spell or a bad spell on those who harass you depending on what you feel is appropriate for that person.
Pressure Sense and Proprioception training
For this, we’ll be working with the same principles as the Kinesthetic Awareness and Pressure Sense training. It helps to be standing while doing this, but it can also be done sitting down as long as you can keep your back straight and your position upright. Ball up both of your fists and tighten your bicep muscles and move your forearms all the way in so that your biceps touch your forearms. Close your eyes and and use your mind to feel out the surfaces of the bicep and the forearms so you can feel the spot in which the biceps and the forearms touch each other. As with all awareness exercises involving the body, if you have trouble being able to direct your awareness by moving the part you want to direct your awareness to. In this case, pump the bicep up and down and pay attention to the entire range of motion from the pump as it goes up and down. The point is to feel the surface of the biceps rubbing against the forearms.
Visual Memory Training Booster
The purpose of this exercise: To spring board visual recreation skills.
The consequence of stinting in developing proficiency in this exercise and/or moving on to more advanced training prematurely: A longer visual training learning curve.
Begin by painting or finding a picture of an aesthetically appealing, yet innocent (you use imagery of sexuality and blood and gore or something normally considered grotesque at your own risk) put it in front of you on a stationary surface, grab a seat and sit at a distance in front of it so that you can see the whole image, but that you’re also in arm’s reach from it. Open your eyes as wide as they can open and stare at the image until you find yourself in a mild altered state of consciousness. This should allow an after image to occur when you close your eyes. Thus, the next step is to close your eyes, thus inducing the after image and keep them gently held shut. — to be continued (need rest)—
Meditation of Coldness and Darkness
The purpose of this exercise: To strengthen the density and intensity of internalized power.
The consequences of stinting on proficiency in this exercise and/or moving onto to more advanced training prematurely: constant leaks in aura, hypersensitivity to environment, unable to look people in the face without flinching.
The key to this meditation is to think of the nature of ice and frigid temperatures. As temperature drops, coldness raises in intensity. If you were to walk into an icy cavern, you would feel cold even if your skin is not touching any ice. The key is to make your aura so subtle that it develops intensity. At first it will starts off so weak, that you can barely grasp the Magikal Muscles without letting it slip. But remember the Hermetic Principle of Polarity — the difference between strong and weak is *degree*, not type. With practice, this will become your most dominant state. The key is to mentally recreate the image and feel of yourself as a serene phantasmic creature, with a dark appearance such as that of a vampire that is pale and delicately decreases the temperature of any environment and to let yourself sink into that identity until it becomes all that you’re aware of. Remain in that state for a little longer each time you practice. It’s hard to say how long, since you experience time differently and what seems like a hours may only be 15 minutes or vice-versa where what seems like only a few minutes may be hours.
Magikal Sight Training
The purpose of this training: To access the faculties allowing one to see spiritual beings in objective space.
This exercise is to induce an optical illusion, allowing the subconscious faculty of seeing spiritual beings in objective space (where they actually are, despite what is suggested by all of the shenanigans they may pull while viewing them with your mind’s eye) to awaken. Stick your arm all the way out using a spear hand * then ball your hand into a fist and stick out your index finger. Next, taking the tip of your index finger and place it on your Magikal Eye (the spot from the Aura Sight #2 exercise). While holding that position, contract your arm flexor downwards so that the side of your finger is up against the bridge of your nose. Then, use both eyes to stare at the middle joint of the index finger. It should look as if your finger is see-through. To ground, count to three out loud and move your arm flexor while keeping your finger still and parallel to where it was on the bridge of the nose. Never come out of this exercise moving the finger in any other way in the beginning, or you’ll pull a Magikal Muscle (literally).
* Spear Hand: Open your hand all of the way, spread all of your fingers out as wide as they can go, then put them back together so that all fall in line with each other.
Sensing and Controlling Aura:
1. To sense Aura flow, you simply have to use a Kuji-In hand sign known as “Kyo”: http://www.dragonsofjustice.org/basic/images/KI-Kyo2.jpg while standing up for prolonged periods of time. Be sure to take 3 mitigated breaths to get yourself in a state of readiness before you start.
Keep in Mind: “Kyo” is not just “any” hand symbol nor should you think that you can arbitrarily substitute such a symbol because, as with the right hand and the left hand knowledge, it is not arbitrarily chosen. Many people in this day and age confuse preferences with basic pragmatism. This results in two kinds of people: 1. The people who think that their preferences are actually necessities and 2. The people who think that all traditional knowledge are merely preferences, and thus, anything can be substituted. Neither is the case with anything outlined here, unless explicitly stated. Modern science has proven that the bio body associates specific bodily movements with specific cognitive thought processes and sensory experiences. For example, if you want to feel your job is important pick up something heavy. If you want to be more creative, press all five of your fingertips up against the underside of a desk. If you want to better remember something, scribble. The Japanese Mystics who came up with Kyo, were developed at a time and place where losing touch with your psychic sensory as a child was not heavily enforced. Thus, they carried it with them to adulthood and were able to make a science out of it. Indeed, this is how the Egyptians, The Babylonians, The Greeks, The Aztecs and Tribal cultures did it. All Occult Sciences were discerned, not fabricated.
2. You should start by learning to control the aura of your Bio Spiritus and Aura Body first. When you can feel aura, you can move it by identifying the canals it flows through. Think of those canals as veins that operate similar to smooth muscle in the digestive system. To pump aura inwards, use the left side of your body. Using your newly develop sense, use your Mind Body to pull the aura in faster. To awaken these motorskills, use memory conjuration and reference to generate the feeling of drinking water. Using your canals as if they were your esophagus, contract them inward, but keep in mind that the range of contraction of your aura canals is much greater in length than the range of contraction of your esophagus. As you practice channeling your Magikal Muscles will increase in power.
The purpose of this exercise: To train pressure sense and stereognostic sense acuteness as well as give an experiential sense of a aura form template.
The consequences of neglecting proficiency in this exercise and moving onto more advanced training prematurely: Improper and imprecise formation of aura templates due to the fact that the stereognostic and pressure senses are not as acute as the visual memory and aren’t able to match the meet the demand for precision, resulting in undesired aura forms being made.
Remember: Understand the main idea of this exercise first then list out the steps on your own in list format (ie. Step 1, step 2, step 3 etc.) as everything you need to know is not in sequential order.
Acquire a squishy object, such a stress ball or a water yo-yo. If you’re particular about your aesthetics, then swallow your pride and purchase a latex dog-toy from the company vo-toys, since they make toys that may as well be works of art. If you want to hold off on this exercise to learn the art of mold making and casting in rubber (which is highly encouraged as it will develop depth sense, something which will be covered later) and make your own squishy object then go for it. That’s what I did and it would be hypocritical to suggest otherwise.
Take three mitigated breaths and then pause for a little get yourself in a state of readiness. When you feel ready (aka stable and not feeling any fluctuations of tension) put the object in your right hand and use the skills you’ve built in breath mitigation and inhale for a count of 5 for 5 sets while squeezing the object in synchrony with your breath. After you’re done, then do the same for a count of 4 reps for 5 sets and after you’re done again, do the same for 3. Repeat this until you get to one set of 5 reps and when you’re done, drop the object while continuing to squeeze it. You should feel the object as if were still in your hands. Squeeze it 100 sets of 1 count mitigated breaths.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN this exercise, know that there’s a proper way to hold this to develop acute pressure sense. It’s strongly advised that you train to hold it as a baby step. To hold it properly, assume the proper hand position by balling your right hand into a fist and spreading your fingers out all of the way until they’re straight. Pause and take a mitigated breath to the count of two (just for the baby step exercise as this will maximize your proficiency for the main exercise via Davis’ law) Holding that position, bend both joints of your fingers and then, with your left hand put the squishy object in your palm (your fingers should be too far away to touch be able to touch it). After its in your palm, use the left hand to keep the squishy object in place and gently close your palm so that your fingers come closer to the object until they touch it. The point is to have the squishy object resting against the surface of your hand and fingers without your fingers squishing into the object. Holding that position, you can now practice squeezing the object but always make sure that when you’re letting go, you fall back into that position where the surface of the object is resting up against the surface of your palm and fingers without your fingers pressing into the object.
Aura Forms training
Aura Egg Shape
The purpose of this training: To train oneself in the proper use of Aura to conjure a desired Aura form.
The consequences of stinting on attaining the proper level of proficiency in this training and moving on to more advanced training and/or application prematurely: Starting off in the wrong order, which is usually conjuring Aura first and mentally recreating as the aura is flowing or conjuring the first aura harmonic that comes to mind, something that is counter-productive to the formation of more complex Aura Forms.
This technique was derived from the “Psi Ball” technique which is commonly used in Psionics training. However, thorough experimentation suggests that an egg-shape is more ergonomic than a perfect sphere for beginner training. This technique is performed differently than the psi-ball, which is forming energy into a ball by gathering it. Training memory, thought control and focus make this much more efficient.
Start off by mentally recreating (conjuring the exact look and form of this colored egg in 3-d) a colored egg in your mind. To help with this, you can acquire a small wooden egg from an arts and crafts store or website and paint it the color you want (a very light blue, such as sky blue is a very good color to start working with) and letting it rest in your hand while you keep your hand perfectly still, but no need to squish or drop since the phantom object training should’ve awakened the muscle memory of your Magikal Muscles.
After you have mentally recreated the sky blue colored egg, keep it held in your mind and use breath mitigation to ready your body and loosen up your aura body (this is the equivalent of heating up plasticine modelling compound to make it softer and easier to work with) and keep that image held. If you lose you grip on the image, then stop immediately. Stop every time you lose focus by taking one mitigated breath much harder than the ones you’re already breathing (we shall call this a “hard mitigated breath”) and then retract your mind. After you’re settled, regather yourself and try again until you can hold the image. Always abort any failures in focus and use the inhales of harder mitigated breaths to retract whatever you were using to construct your visualizations and/or the aura put into the effort and the exhale to dissolve it. Take more than one hard mitigated breath if you need to do so. When you finally have yourself together again keep practicing, although if you’re having these problems, it means that you weren’t more thorough enough with the previous stages of training and should go back and work on all areas more thoroughly. In any case, whenever you can mentally recreate the sky blue egg in your mind and keep it held, channel aura using your Bio spiritus into your right arm. With the mental recreation, held, the aura will automatically form itself into the egg. This effect is normally weak, but is magnified by ideomotor training.
Direct Magikal Techniques:
Charging an Object:
The purpose of this exercise: To learn how to channel aura into an object for talisman and amulet creation.
Note: This requires intermediate level aura control.
To charge an object, pick spot on the object to charge. Aura is best absorbed in indentations on an object, but can be pushed through a smooth, flat surface. For beginner practice, I recommend a candle or a jar. The spot to charge it should be on the bottom of the candle or the jar. Turn the candle or jar over with your left hand and channel Aura into your right hand. Channel aura into your right hand and keep it in place. Don’t make the mistake a lot of others make and try to “channel it through” at a distance (it usually ends up being nothing more than an ordinary projectile blast, which is psychic self-defense, not charging). Instead put your hand firmly on the surface of the bottom of the candle or jar and, while keeping your hand in place use your Magikal motor skills and slightly give the aura a push from the middle of the palm to charge the aura body of the object.
The purpose of this exercise: Learning to replenish your supply usable of Magikal Power, when you’re low.
The consequences of neglecting this exercise: Not being able to use Aura properly until about a day-and-a-half of rest. This can vary from negligible to dangerous depending on what Magik is needed for. It can be harmful to the Mind Mind, the Spiritus Mind, The Spiritus Body, The Bio Body and The Bio Mind to naively use more Aura than is expendable and could result in greatly decreased efficiency until the power is restored.
As mentioned above, Aura harmonics gather in indentations and crevices of objects and the same applies to organic matter. Aura travels through the apparatus of the human through the left side of the body. Start with your left hand. Using The Hermetic Principle of Mentalism, will the intent to align the forces of interaction to prepare for absorption by using the Magikal Muscles of the Spiritus Mind to project the feeling of streams of air blowing into your left hand and traveling through your left arm and circulating downward. Once you activate this, the Magikal Muscles required to do this are brought the awareness of your Mind Body and can be utilized with greater ease in the future. Holding the charge use your Aura Body, contract the Magikal Muscles located on the indentations of the palm of the hand inward. This should draw Aura harmonics of like-kind into your Mind Spiritus to be processed into you and made available for usage.
The purpose of this technique: To de-possess or protect personal belongings or food.
The name for this technique was actually borrowed from a science fiction show called “Hunter X Hunter”. Basically, it’s using an object as an extension of yourself. It’s starts off by charging the object using the technique above, however, you now use the forces of interaction to work with that charge and direct the aura body of the object as if it were your own.
The forces of interaction predate space-time and thus, do not to travel from point A to point B to work, nor do they need to be “wrapped around” anything. Nor should we be tempted to think that we are “gathering” forces of interaction from the atmosphere. If we operate from that kind of thinking, we’ll mess up our spells each and every time. The forces of interaction are called such because their properties of action at a distance differ from all others. They can only interact with like-aura harmonics or harmonics within a collective range of their composition. If we attempt to “gather” forces of interaction from our atmosphere and treat them as if they worked like other phenomenon of nature that occurred after the big bang, we’ll only end up trying to add incompatible aura harmonics together, which will result in the formation of an “intermediary” harmonic (actually this develops first, due to the forces of interaction from consciousness bringing the two incompatible harmonics together) which will prove counter-productive.
Channeling aura harmonics of this kind relies on a vague application of Aura Magik and the ability to remember and create or re-create the memories of feelings without attaching visual memories to them.
Putting another to sleep
The purpose of this technique: To learn how to put another individual to sleep so that if one is ever put in a position to defend oneself, they can do so with no legal trouble. Advanced only.
This technique is similar to Shu and it’s also a good example of being highly specific of what properties you use. Many will make the mistake of assuming that they should gather the aura harmonics that come from memories their feelings of sleepiness and project it towards the individual. This is foolish. Even if it can work, it takes too long and you begin having the lions share of the receiving end of the spell. Instead, you can link to a person by looking directly into their eyes and then bring forth the memory using the Magikal Muscles of your Bio Mind of getting feelings from of them of them being sleepy, then, using the Magikal Muscles of your Bio Spiritus, use those harmonics to make that person so drowsy that their bio body becomes light and falls asleep, succumbing to the feelings of sleep.
This is an advanced technique and needs to be able to be performed at the spur of the moment, something that should be easy for an advanced practitioner.
Willful Possession/Partial Possession
Willful possession is an advanced technique and should only be done with a familiar spirit who they’re strongly linked to. It is wisest to do this with a nature spirit rather than a human spirit at first, since a human spirit fits better into the bio body and can therefore take over much easier. Furthermore, human spirits aren’t normally as capable as nature spirits, but they can provide information
Recalibrate your aura harmonics by conjuring up the feeling of the familiar’s aura harmonics in your spiritus mind. Like all such memory recalls, the more intense you build up the feeling the smoother the working will go. After you build up the charge in your mind, your aura should transmute to your parallel harmonics. This is important to remember, because it keeps your attention on the fact that the goal is not to copy your familiar’s harmonic, but to simply adjust yours to your own unique harmonics using the feeling of your familiar’s harmonics as the input of force acting upon your spiritus mind to cause the change in aura. It doesn’t have to look or be the exact same, it just has to be sufficient enough to link. After your aura is of the proper harmonics and of the proper intensity to link to your familiar, communicate with your familiar and ask them to enter the part on your back known as the “origin”.
Removing a Ghost or undesirable force that’s attached to your aura
This technique uses a combination of the bio body and the bio spiritus. It is best to use train yourself in this technique first by practice drilling it, that way you can use it properly when needed. Take your right hand and grab the ghost or undesired Aura harmonics. Then, when in your grasp, keep your hand perfectly still and move your to your right side. Let the undesirable spirit or aura harmonic waft away by —
Ascending Through Memorization:
One important and vital skill set is the ability to improve your power and knowledge of Magik by memorizing. In your training and throughout your day, you will find that you will experience power and visions that are at a higher level than what you’re used to. These experiences are called “prodigies” and they are defined as “acts or events that inspire wonder.” These “prodigies” are experienced mostly in meditative states and occasionally in normal waking life. However, with your training in this cutting edge Magikal system, they can be more common in every day life. They also become more common as your bio spiritus becomes a more capable vessel for your other functionaries through exercise. If you’ve never experienced a prodigy before, don’t worry about figuring out what they mean as I describe them here. Keep up your training and when you experience it, you can’t miss it.
The key to ascending through memorization is to memorize whatever you feel useful or groundbreaking through your practice and apply it Magikally the same way you would apply any other lesson that nature has to teach or something you learn from a book. If you see a spiritual being use a technique that you find useful, use that technique by recalling the memory using your Mind Mind and use your Spiritus Mind to figure out the technique and how it works. If it doesn’t suit you, then call upon your spiritus mind to figure out a technique that suits you. After you do so, call upon your spiritus mind figure out the underlying principles of the technique and then you will have expanded your understanding of the principles of forming techniques. If you feel an aura density that is greater than your own, memorize the way it felt, then recall the memory, hold it in your mind and cycle your aura from your Aura Body through your Bio Body while keeping it held and your Aura body will automatically become stronger.
The applications for using what you experience as a reference and inspiration for becoming better are innumerable, but one thing is important — remember them. If something you experience expands your collective range of experiences, you are on the right track.
How to use the Pentacle to Physically Evoke A Spirit
This is an intermediate-level technique, contrary to what the mainstream current of the Occult will tell you. You require the ability to materialize Aura forms to have enough power to use it. Always work with a pre-contracted familiar, and start off by doing your basic ritual work of banishing, cleansing, cone of power, drawing your pentacle on the floor. The key relies on using the geometry of the shape. Have your familiar possess the material you drew it on the floor with and continue to build up Aura Harmonics that are compatible with your familiars (see the willful possession technique from earlier) and, while still mentally linked with the spirit, raise your Magik Wand or Scepter in the air, as if you were the Statue of Liberty. That should change the velocity of the “flow” of the Aura Harmonics in such a way that evens out the density of the harmonics is spread thin, which allows the spirit to materialize without any turbulence. The familiar spirit travels through the five points of the pentacle (the “points”, meaning the very tip of each triangle) in tandem and assumes its default shape by reforming in the center of the pentacle (shaped like a pentagon).
The familiar spirit should always be told about the working and how to go about it before the ritual.
Shape matters and some shapes are better for some things than others. This is a fact that modern mainstream Occultism fails to address, even telling people that “anything will do”. This is fallacious. The object shape determines how Aura enters, flows and can be tapped into. If the Aura Harmonic is incompatible with the shape of the object its being channeled into, it could be unstable and leak out, or become inert. This is what correspondence is for. Using correspondence, you can automatically acquire the right Aura Harmonic for the right objects by conjuring an image or symbol of what corresponds to the construction of the object. Also, the construction of objects should be built only on factoring in correspondence and how correspondence relates to the purpose of the object.
The PROPER way to power up and it’s purpose — Banishing and Cleansing!
So often I see a novice Magik User trying to use direct Magik to “power up”, as they see in mangas and animes like Dragonball Z. This is the equivalent of trying to imitate what you see in a Kung Fu movie and confusing it with real martial arts. The problem in this case, is not what they’re doing, it’s how they’re going about it. “Powering up” is a well-known concept in Magik and is essential to it. It’s often referred to as “gathering energy” and many techniques including drumming, dancing, psycho-drama taking mind-altering substances, the Magik Circle and the Cone Of Power have been used for the purposes of building energy historically and in modern times. However, the problem I often see in the novice Magik Users is that they try to imitate what they see characters like Goku doing and end up wasting a lot of useful Aura when trying to power up. They end up doing just the opposite and actually lose effectiveness. I often see them screaming, which is another mistake, since screaming doesn’t really have an effect on the intensity of power. In fact, just the opposite, mitigation and internal calmness produce way more efficient power than going off of the deep end in any extreme. The closer you stay in the grey area without crossing into the extreme, the more effective you are. On that note, remaining perfectly neutral is also inefficient. The key is in understanding that some shades of grey are darker and lighter than others and it’s your ability to navigate through those shades that allows you to be effective and that this is what is meant by “balance”, not to stay at point of neutrality 100% of the time.
The key to proper powering up is to burn off undesirable energy, dissoluting the inert components, distinguishing the aura harmonics left over as a result and internalizing them in proper relation to each other, then remaining mentally still until they consolidate in place. This very practice relies on developing a mental link with aura harmonics that correspond with your goal, not on inappropriately using these forces with the expectation that they “should” work like fire, electricity etc. It is true that they can be made to work that way, but the way to do it is also based on linking and utilizing your mental muscles, no matter how much the end results resembles the workings of matter organized after the Big Bang and the formation of spacial temporal boundaries.
All of these steps happen in every instance, but the key to doing them like Goku, for example, is to practice this so much that the interval time it takes to pull off each phase and transition to each phase is so small that it makes it look like a singular maneuver. Don’t be shy in spending six months to a year just practicing this alone and nothing else. It’ll be worth it in the long run.
There’s still more you need to know. Undesirable aura harmonics are common. They can be anything that interferes with your working, even if it’s a good range of harmonics that isn’t suited for the purpose(s) of the spell or the construction of the aura harmonics. We acquire them as a result of our daily interactions with other people, walking through places such as inner cities or even wilderness areas with mixed harmonics, some of which do not resonate with us. If we don’t banish properly, they can be the result of residue harmonics left over from previous workings we’ve done. The key to proper banishing is to use two distinctive techniques for which type of undesirable aura we’re talking about. So, let’s divide these undesired harmonics into 3 categories, identify what each category means and the technique for dealing with. The categories will based on the usefulness of each type of undesirable harmonic and the way the techniques that get ride of them work and for this, the 3 best names for these categories that come to mind are: trash, recycle and compost.
As a general rule of thumbs, for usable and reusable undesired aura harmonics, use your Magikal Muscles to channel them from the crown of your head to the spot just below your belly button and from that point, to pull them up from the soles of your feet to your belly button, without having crossing over the aura flow coming from the top with the aura flow from the bottom. Even though this starts off with flowing in one direction, the result of doing the exercise properly has a flows of two directions of aura flow operating in tandem. The flow from the top is designed to transition to the flow from the bottom, since the grounding of the bottom flow causes interference with the top if channeled first. The flow from the top should be a gateway to transition to the flow from the bottom and completing the exercise.
Compost(1 year ago)
Just some of my favorite Magikal Exercises. Figured I’d share in case there’s anyone else interested:
"Take a seat in a comfortable chair or lie down on a settee. Relax the whole body, close your eyes and observe the train of your thoughts for five minutes, trying to retain it. At first, you will find that there are rushing up to you thoughts concerning everyday affairs, professional worries, and the like. Take the behaviour of a silent observer toward these trains of thoughts, freely and independently. According to the mentality and the mental situation you happen to be in at the moment, this exercise will be more or less easy for you. The main point is not to forget yourself, not to lose the train of thoughts, but to pursue it attentively. Beware of falling asleep while doing this exercise. If you begin to feel tired, stop instantly and postpone the exercise to another time, when you intend not to give in to tiredness. The Indians sprinkle cold water on their faces or rub down the face and upper part of their bodies to remain brisk and not waste precious time. Some deep breathing before you begin will also prevent tiredness and sleepiness. As time goes on, each disciple will find out such little tricks by himself. This exercise of controlling thoughts has to be undertaken int he morning and at night. It is to be extended each day by one minute to allow the train of thoughts to be pursued and controlled without the slightest digression for a time of 10 minutes at least after a week’s training….The keenest attention ought to be given to this work of thought control, as it is very important for magic development, a fact that everyone will realize later on." —Franz Bardon from Initiation into Hermetics (p. 35)

of the dense aether is used to accomplish gross feats such as
levitation and the short range occult martial arts. The force
responsible for this resides in the belly just above the navel and
may be extruded in lines of force to any part of the body and to
locations outside the body’s surface to a distance of several
meters. Levitation (which includes the ability to walk on water
and fire, as well as in the air, or at fantastic rates across the earth)
is accomplished by supporting the body’s weight with these
aetheric force lines. In the case of firewalking, the force is
used to repel the heat and flames.
To get these force lines to come from the body, the adept sits
cross-legged on the ground and attempts to jump like a frog
from this awkward position. The exercise is usually conducted
in darkness and the jumps attempted with the lungs fully
inflated. Within as little as three years’ practice, one may begin
to learn how to exert the aetheric force against the ground. A
cushion may be used to protect the tissues of the posterior in
Movement of the force within the body is easier to achieve and
most commonly is approached by trying to develop a warmth or
itching sensation at various points. The adept should be able to
free himself from the attack of virtually any form of disease and
ensure longevity by directing the psychic force to any site of
weakness. If the force can be drawn to the hands, then it may be
projected just beyond for healing purposes or to deal fatal blows
to an enemy.
The dense aetheric force is the basis of most superhuman
feats, the abilities of leaping to great height, clinging to smooth
vertical surfaces, the deflection of weapons, and the strength of
Operation of the subtle aethers involves the transference of
thoughts and emotions by the agency of the aethers which
normally link the life force to the brain. The simpler the message
and the greater its emotional charge, the more easily is it
projected. As with all things, destructive effects are much more
easily created than constructive ones. The adept may begin to
strengthen his abilities by selecting a small specimen of plant
life and trying to make it wilt and wither by the force of his
unaided will. As it begins to succumb he may reverse the
current of his will and resuscitate it again. He may practice
telepathic contact with various beasts, dogs being particularly
suitable for this purpose. At odd moments he may pick various
persons around him and make them stand up, sit down, or move
around and do particular things. One of the classical tests of
psychic ability is the power of casting an aura of subjective
invisibility about oneself. This does not involve any alteration
in one’s optical properties, but surrounding persons are
somehow prevented from noticing one’s presence. The
complementary ability to this is the projection of an aura of
charisma or fascination which may have application in the
formation of sundry cults and messianic sects. These powers
arise from a constant, semi-conscious, intense concentration
on the characteristics one wished to project.” — Peter J. Carroll, from Liber Null and Psychonaut (pp. 98-99)
"Anyone can meditate, anywhere. The word meditation conjures up visions of a monk sitting in
lotus posture, his hands on his lap staring into nothingness. But many people in Western culture
find this posture uncomfortable.* They are not as accustomed to sitting on mats or on the
ground as some other cultures who practice this everyday. Fortunely one can meditate just as
effectively sitting in a chair. But certain elements are essential.
Upright posture is very important. It improves both breathing and the flow of energy or Chi.
Sitting slumped over decreases the flow of oxygen and can eventually lead to distracting
discomfort. One way to straighten your posture is to imagine this string pulling upward,
pulling your head and spinal column into line. This visualization will
naturally pull you into the best posture.
Some people find it useful to pick a spot to focus on,
especially in the beginning. This may be a spot on the wall, a candle flame, or
an arbitrary spot on the ground six feet in front of you. A variation is to close your eyes
and visualize and visualize an object like a feather or a candle flame. The trick is to breath
gently enough that your breath does not cause the imaginary feather or candle flame to flutter.
Another trick* is to imagine a vapor cloud coming out of your nose when you exhale, something
like the cloud of vapor you see on a frosty day. When you inhale, the cloud is drawn back into
your nostrils. You simply “watch”* the cloud expand and contract.
Focus on your breathing. Let your stomach relax, and breathe deeply. Take a deep breath in,
hold it a moment, inhale a little more, then exhale completely. Once you have exhaled hold it a
moment, then exhale a little more before taking your next breath. You have to think about this
process first , but it very quickly becomes something you do naturally without thinking about it.
Inhaling a little extra before exhaling and exhaling a bit before inhaling helps you to do this
deep breathing with less discomfort. After a few minutes your respiratory rate will naturally
decrease as you relax.” — Kerr Cuhulain, from Wiccan Warrior (pp. 69-70)
"The most simple meditation technique is to find a comfortable physical position, though not one that will encourage the practitioner to fall asleep unexpectedly (hence the common usage of an upright or sitting position). Once in place, the practitioner begins to breath deeply, not hyperventilating, but drawing breath all the way down into the lower parts of the lung, and breathing out in a slow manner. Eventually the mind will sharpen and the body will relax , creating the ideal state of relaxed readiness. It is from this state of relaxed readiness that effective magick springs forth. In time the practitioner will become adept at achieving this R&R state with a single controlled breath, allowing them to prepare for empowered magical action at a moment’s notice." — Seth, from Tactical Magick (pp. 8-9)
"The aura around the head is called the nimbus; around the whole body it is called the aureole. Have a friend sit in front of a blank wall or curtain — something tan, beige of off-white is best. Have the lighting be low, with the light source out of your view (a few candles can work well). Sit about ten feet back, settle yourself into a light meditative state, and stare blankly at your friend’s "third eye" — right in between the eye-brows. As you do so, open your eyes wide and let them go into a soft focus, as if you are focusing on the spot half way in between you. You may find this easier to do by hanging a white thread from the ceiling at this distance, and focusing on it. Breathe smoothly and maintain your off-focus. After a bit, you will begin to see a clear light outlining your friend’s head, as if they were glowing softly. But if you shift your focus and try to see it more clearly, it will disappear. The trick is not to look directly at the aura, but rather to catch it at the edges of your vision.
Practice this awhile until you can do it easily. Then try the same thin under different lighting, different backgrounds and with different people. Eventually, you will be able to see auras around anyone…And when you can see them around people, you will be able to see them also around pets, plants and especially trees (which have enormous auras!)
What you will have learned to perceive is etheric aura. As your perceptions improve, you can learn to detect the energy that radiates into the astral body and beyond. You may be able to see it flowing, ebbing, wavering, and shimmering like the Earth’s Aurora.” — Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, from Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (p. 34)
"Seeing the aura of others is a passive exercise. Now here are some exercises to actively expand and contract your own aura. Hold your hand out in front of you, back towards you, and fingers spread wide, as if you were pushing something away. Use the same technique you have just learned to see the aura of your hand and fingers. Now start breathing intensely, rapidly in and out, through your nose. Without changing your position, tense your muscles and stare at your aura as if your eyes can emit laser beams. As if you were turning up a burner on a stove, focus your intention on "pumping up" your aura, so that it seems to "burn" brighter and brighter. Visualize the auras lengthening from your fingertips, extending like flames of a blow torch as you level your hand and point your fingers away. Then, when you have extended them as far as you can, suck in a deep breath, and retract him back to the normal glow as you slowly close your fingers into a loose fist. Practice this over and over." — Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, from Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard (p. 34)
"Another training technique is the puncturing of an orange. This may sound fairly simple, but pick up an orange and try sticking your finger into it. The flexibility of the orange gives it considerable strength. Now place two or three fingers closely together and, again, using psychokinesis or ki, project the fingers through the fruit. Strike very quickly, with the mind projecting force ahead of the strike." — Col. John B. Alexander, Major Richard Groller,
and Janet Morris, from The Warrior’s Edge (p. 195)
“Alchemy is a rainbow bridging the chasm between the earthly and heavenly planes, between matter and spirit…alchemy, the royal sacerdotal art, also called the hermetic philosophy, conceals, in esoteric texts and enigmatic emblems, the means of penetrating the very secrets of Nature, Life, and Death, of Unity, Eternity and Infinity.
Viewed in the context of these secrets, that of gold making is, relatively speaking, of little consequence: something comparable to the super-powers (siddhis) sometimes obtained by Great Yogis, which are sought not after for their own sake, but are important by-products of high spiritual attainment.”
