Geometry, Chi, & Magick

About 5 minutes ago I was in meditation. Asking for my next step I get the nudge to write about mathematics, or more specifically, geometry in meditation. So here I am.

For decades the tesseract as drawn on paper has fascinated me. Here’s a video I found which has some mind boggling animation to ponder.

This is the key. Mind boggling. Anything to shutdown my local, physical brain for a while opens doors in my mind. Those doors lead to some very curious places in the mind-scape.

Another visualization I have been playing with has been folding space. What would it look like if you grabbed a piece of the fabric of the Universe in each hand and brought them together?

All I’ve gotten so far is what looks like a star field popping into my mind’s eye. Should be fun to explore.

The point of this exercise is the shutdown of my local brain experience. Getting the explainer to go play somewhere while I go deeper into other experiences.

Or just observe and learn.

One idea I will experiment with next is using geometry or the folding space process combined with chi. I am curious what will happen when I channel energy into the experience. Both with and without intention.

Be interesting to see what and possibly who might show up and join me for tea and a chat.

The Power of Names and More Secrecy

You may have noticed I changed the name on this site to Sea Magick. Why? First, I admit I can be a perfectionist. Picking a domain name is one of those activities where this can really show up.

Mostly, I wanted to be able to have my magick and sorcery projects a step removed from the public. For some people the word sorcery can be loaded and off-putting. My preference is to deliver information and share experiences which will help people. I don’t really mind if people don’t like the word sorcery. The word magick though is easier to put out there and not have people stumble or project their issues on me.

The word magick is also just so accessible to people!  The real distinguisher is my focus on the ocean. I didn’t want the Sea part of the name to be lost by the Sorcery part. Plus, SeaMagick was available on Twitter and Instagram.  SeaSorcery was not. So there is that. I did like the alliteration in SeaSorcery.

Really if you go by definitions there is no difference between the words magick and sorcery. Everything depends on your source, on how far back you go, and which culture you use as a reference. The earliest reference I could find was a pre-Christian precursor word to sorcery and basically meant pharmacist.

Pick whatever definition you prefer. One way to keep people distracted is get them disagreeing on definitions of words.  While they are acting like amateur lawyers fighting over who has a legitimate claim to some bit of language you can make off with the goods. Amazing how well this works.

The key is in the doing not the definitions we can debate all day long. Since there is 2000 plus years of differing definitions for the word sorcery I am going to be pragmatic. When I write I use the word magick a lot. People are very familiar with the word magick. So I changed the name of the web site. Now my url matches my Twitter and Instagram handles.

About the secrecy. I also realized I will continue with a level of secrecy in certain matters. Even though I actively engage in activities some would call sorcery I am not going to be broadcasting my projects in real time. Even less so for any work for clients.

Stories though are helpful when learning. People are wired to learn through stories. The telling of my own stories is certainly going to be helpful for others. So I will figure out a balance in how much to tell. Secrecy does build power so no telling stories until the results are tabulated.

Edit: Yes! I changed the name again on 11/18/2018! SeaMagick was constraining me so I went back to one of my previous domains. MysticGrail.

 

How to Do Successful Ocean Money Magick

I forget where I saw this first.  Either at RuneSoup.com or StrategicSorcery.com.

Magick is not an ATM machine.

No wait.  Magick is not alimony. It was one of those.

Either way you don’t just wish you had some money and poof, you’re bank account is full.  There’s a bit more to it. For one, you are part of this process of having money find you. Other people are part of this as well.  Money flows between and through people.

If you want to work with money magick there are a few concepts to consider. For that matter these ideas are worth considering for any ritual work you are wanting to do.

Tips for Successful Money Magick Rituals:

  1. Confidence – During the ritual imagine being confident even if you are not. This isn’t the same as faking it.  What I am suggesting is to have the confidence of a child playing.  Playful attitudes will carry you a very long ways.
  2. Intention and Presence – Be here now. Meditation can help. Speaking out loud to whoever you want to work with does as well.  While your speaking you tend to stay focused on what you are saying and your audience.
  3. No Leaning – Don’t beg.  Doesn’t work. Don’t be a bully either. Be centered and grounded. Anything else pushes people away or draws in vampires.
  4. Appreciation – Sea shells, tobacco, rum, whiskey, or sage offer whatever you feel drawn intuitively to offer. What’s most important is the appreciation.  Without groveling. Remember you are dealing with energies and entities which do not have to worry about things like eating. They don’t need your wine or sea glass. The value is in the love and appreciation being expressed.
  5. Transmuting Emotion – How do you feel having in the act of paying off your car?  Or whatever you are asking for?  How does depositing that $5000 feel? Don’t focus on the money directly.  Focus on the feeling of the money circulating into your life. If getting the roof fixed is more powerful for you than seeing your bank account balance with a surplus focus there.
  6. Magickal Awareness – Cultivate a magickal perspective on life.  See the world around you from a magickal point of view. Since magick will work in unexpected ways you may miss the seeing the results show up in your life because you were looking the other way.
  7. Patience – Stop obsessing with whether your ritual worked. Worrying like this only delays results. Or worse, cause you to miss them altogether.

Money or Wealth Finds You Through Other People

If you aren’t connecting with other people in some way money won’t find you. Think about like going fishing. Just not in a predatory way. Are you more likely to catch a fish with one fishing pole or 10? Each line in the water is a potential catch. Create channels for your desires to manifest.

So far this year my money magick work has been really educational. After a year my real estate brokering efforts have brought in zero dollars. Real estate could in fact be a good choice in the end.  Right now, goings are slow for me in the hottest market in history.

Why hasn’t magick worked in real estate? In a way magick has been working.  Potential clients have been finding me within days in rather unexpected ways within a few days each time I do rituals.  No transactions yet.

On the other hand I had a very nice windfall from a completely unexpected source show up within a few days of a ritual this spring. That ritual involved the Headless Rite, Four kings of the four directions, and spiced rum.  Or whiskey.  I forget.

This is typical.

Financial magick, like all magick, works by the rules of other realms. The magick does not work by human expectations.  You have to start somewhere though and having an idea where you want to go or what you want to achieve is important. Just make sure you create ways for results to come to you.

Browse the Internet for a while looking for wealth or financial magick stories. As a rule, whether you are working with angels or dragons, results happen in very unexpected ways from surprising sources. Timing will also be paradoxical.

One way and it is a good one is tapping into your gifts.  You were born with gifts to express in this world.  Some of them are even worthy of offering in exchange for money.  Offer value for value to other people. Your gifts are one way you can participate in the circulation of energy involving money. Figuring out your gifts though can be a challenge.

What Are Your Gifts?

The one thing I have been reluctant to do for decades, write about magick and help people with ritual work, is where all the energy is for me. Other hints I have been getting for years have been coming from other people about my voice.  I always get compliments on the quality of my voice in helping people get into trances for hypnosis or energy work.

These are my gifts!  I’m just now understanding sharing them.  The more I am sharing what I am learning and ready to share the more I am seeing results.  As is typical the results don’t fit my brain’s expectations. I am also learning people are happy to pay for me to share my gifts with them. This in another concept which has taken some inner work to get through.

When I started doing a new round of rituals this spring I decided to do something brand new to me.  I started working with archangels. Just to be clear, angels have never been my thing. No particular reason other than lack of exposure on my part. While I can’t really point to specific results from some of those rituals this spring there is one worth mentioning:

A ritual involving Metatron was very helpful in realizing a few of my  inner secrets:

  • First, seeing clearly how important the Ocean has been throughout my life.
  • Second, I have become much more willing to be more public about helping people through and with rituals and magick.
  • Mix ocean magick and sharing with others led to the creation of this blog.

The other rituals appear to be working they just aren’t really measurable yet. Remember timing is in a whole different dimension from yours. Results can happen in days, weeks, and sometimes a year later.  When results start showing up though you might feel like you were struck by lightening. Staying in the magickal frame of mind is key to not missing out.

Working with Mother Ocean

If you have a guide or spirit you would like to work with and are ready to power up a bit grab your life jacket.  Mother Ocean has been here since the dawn of time ready to work with you. You don’t have to be near the ocean.  If you have some ocean pictures, sand, water, or wave soundtrack can help you tap into her vast energy.

Your imagination is the doorway to all magick. Imagination is more powerful than most people realize.

I love working with the ocean because for me the images are so easy to access.  That ease is a big clue.  Life takes effort but it doesn’t require struggle.  If I am struggling in any part of my life I always take a closer look.  Including in my magickal and spiritual work. There is no effort for me to feel the tide coming in delivering  with it gifts from the ocean. Try it!

Can you readily imagine working with the ocean currents, sea life, tide, and moon?  Yes? Then you have access to Ocean Magick. Even just a deep inner knowing you are supposed to work with Mother Ocean is enough.

Setting can be helpful in stirring the energy and inspiring your imagination. People use alters in part to help create a setting for getting into the productive space.  Listening to waves, touching sand, and feeling saltwater whether at home or on the beach will help set the stage for you.

If you are fortunate enough to be able to be at the beach there’s all sorts of possibilities! Rocks, sea glass, sand, shells, water, sticks, driftwood, birds fish, the list goes on.  Make the space meaningful and respectful for you and all creatures .

Combining your imagination and Ocean Breathing you can connect your intention with the energy of the ocean. Acting as a guide you can channel ocean energy to empower your money goals. Or, ask to find those hidden treasures and gifts within yourself.

Release your energized intention and let it fly of like a seagull cruising the air currents off a cliff.

Let the tide bring your desires and gifts ashore.

1 Thing I Did Years Ago to Get Ocean Magick Energy Pulsing Through My Body

Years and years ago, sometime around 1998-ish maybe earlier I started an intentional practice to develop my ability to sense energy.  I wanted to begin to feel energy course through my body. Not only that I wanted to be able to choose to ignite the flow both when I wished and where I wished. Meaning I wanted to be able to get in the energy state walking around or even driving.

What got me started on this path was something I read in one of Tom Brown Jr.’s books.  He talked about a feeling you could experience physically when you get to a certain state of meditation.  I forget exactly how he described it.  An electricity flowing through you. The force which connects all things. I wanted to feel that connection. The exact motivation I really don’t recall.

These days I understand what he was describing as Chi in Eastern terms. The subtle energy one taps into with Reiki and other related modalities. As is typical with my life’s journey I didn’t seek a master or teacher. What I got was a bright idea.  The best way I can to describe this idea would be to call it Ocean Breathing.

Forgive the detour but I can’t believe how much of my life I have experienced in an Ocean context.  My whole sorcery practice can be described as Oceanic.  The exercise I am going to describe is  blatantly Sea Sorcery yet only recently did I get this is what I have been doing.

Even when I was exploring Earth based approaches.  The most powerful experiences I have are nearly always near or in the ocean. The more I reflect on this idea the more I see the pattern.  The quietest inner voice is the most powerful. While the ocean can be a deafening storm of wind and waves the power is often in the depths which appear very quiet to us surface dwellers. This perspective also explains the amazing amount of ideas I get in the shower or while swimming.

Back to the Ocean Breathing.  When I say Ocean Breathing I am not saying put on SCUBA gear or attempt to actually breathe underwater. What I am suggesting is you imagine yourself a wave in a vast ocean

Ocean Breathing in 3 Steps

  1. Imagine every breath you inhale peaking at the end of your inhalation like the crest of a wave in the ocean.
  2. Imagine every breath you exhale ends in a trough.
  3. Imagine feeling the Ocean, energy, being drawn up into your being and flows back out as you exhale.
  4. Repeat.

Do this everywhere all the time.

  • Walking,
  • Driving,
  • Watching TV,
  • Playing Video Games
  • Cooking Diner

After a while you will begin to notice rather subtle feelings in your breathing process. Exactly how the sensation feels will be a little or even a lot different from person to person. Just be open to noticing what you notice.

As you develop the capacity to flow this energy you will also find you can direct it somewhat.  In fact, we open a Universe of ideas when we consider the possibilities for working with this energy. Some of the more obvious ones are related to healing work.  Healing is something I am not involved with these days. Developing your facilities of energy access and guiding though is one of the main piers for our magickal practice regardless of a specific area of interest.

Ocean energy skills work are also useful with:

  1. Sex magick and sexual connection at the energetic level can definitely get your attention. The power is in the subtleties. My most profound experiences have come from creating a space to be filled and holding that inner space confidently, patiently, and without expectation,
  2. attracting money and financial opportunities into your life,
  3. attracting your soul mate,
  4. connecting with entities whether personal or really in any pantheon will get a boost from developing your ocean energy abilities. Some of the ones I work with are quite personal and some are well known. Energetic skills have been helpful in every case. Much more so than specific words I may use in a ritual.  Communicating with energy is just so much more effective for me.
  5. most importantly, connecting with yourself. (The real point behind all these practices.)

You can open yourself to a new life of experiences and opportunities by starting this simple Ocean Breathing practice. No force, just the energy wave being drawn in and flowing out. Let the energy of Life keep flowing through you connecting you with the rest of creation. Stay open and the ripples turn into waves you can surf.

Ride the energy wave!

How To Mix Magick, Money, and Your Career – Tales From My Life

Until very recently I was stumped by a very important career question?

What do I want to do?

For a guy over the age of 50 coming up with some answers sooner than later would be a good idea.  Assuming I want to experience some kind of change in the professional side of my life. No small task in my experience.

For years I have studied and tried starting various businesses. I have had a few careers.  I’ve made bit of money here and there in hobbies. Nothing stuck.

Except my adventures in the esoteric side of life. Those inclinations never left me alone.

For at least 15 years I have been getting this nudge to offer my magickal talents to help others. Yes, it has taken me over 15 years to get to a point where I can be comfortable with the idea of getting paid for using these gifts. My big hold up was not so much confidence.  I was really concerned about business ventures focused on the magickal would slow down my growth.

Really concerned! So much so I would have lived under a bridge before risking sabotage of my spiritual growth.  I even did get paid for doing energy work early on.  In the end, I didn’t pursue a healer’s path.

One recent experience helped transform my thinking about money and magick.  After doing some rituals and offerings I started seeing results.  Pay off a car loan and buy another new car kind of results.  One was a phone call out of the blue two days after a ritual. In other cases, prospective real estate clients started finding me as well.  And fast.

What else happened was my growth accelerated. Why? Integration. I was beginning to integrate more parts of my life into the whole of who I am. Magickal and mundane are woven together. They are on in the same. I was limiting myself by creating the illusion of two worlds.  One to express the magickal aspects of my existence and the other the non-magickal. When in truth all of my life is magickal. Reality is founded in the magickal energies.

Including the money making parts.

So the next question becomes, “Do I use my skills in a non-magick field or offer my them directly to others in exchange for money?”

Both options are completely valid.  In my case, I have been studying, practicing, and experimenting with all sorts of paranormal and energetic things since I was 9 years old.  Speaking of, I have no idea what happened to the pyramid necklace I ordered in the mail. Curious child I was for sure.

My longevity in every other field of interest I have studied doesn’t even come close. You might say I tried everything else I could and am left with what was there in the first place.  Okay I took over 40 years to get here but better late than never.

What conclusions might you draw from my story? Or maybe what have I learned from my path so far?

  • All of reality is magickal at the foundation. I find hints of non-ordinary reality everywhere.
  • Business and career is just one of many ways for people to interact with each other and the world around them.
  • My delineation of money from the rest of reality has been fear-based.  I feel money at best represents energy.  Other than to humans in the physical it is just paper with printing.

The tools available in the various magickal systems are useful in real estate, medicine, education, business, politics, raising kids, or anything else. Everything we perceive in the physical experience is still subject to influence of some sort by the magickal. How you apply the tools though would  vary with your circumstances and your belief systems. Smoothing over tense situations at work and attracting a new client require approaches only really differing in the details. Meta-processes are quite similar.

I’ve come to understand that I just happen to be someone who is drawn specifically to energy and magick as a primary study.  If there was another field where I had this kind of attraction I could use magick to enhance that career. There isn’t so here I am.

Well, there is my side gig teaching Argentine Tango. A rich experience for anyone interested in heart magic. Another story for another day.

 

Magick, Twin Flames, and Why You Probably Aren’t Going to Win the Lottery with Your Wand

One thing for sure.  If you want a Harry Potter magickal experience you’re going to need a heck of a lot of power.  At least you will in this Universe.  We appear to live in a Universe governed by probabilities. The magick that is reality also appears to be rather non-linear.  As in, how you think things should happen in your life is almost certainly wrong.

Can you change your pencil into a train set with the wave of a magick wand?  Maybe, the odds though are rather slim.  In a probabilistic Universe our magickal workings are all about influencing the odds of some event happening. You need a pretty big shift in odds if you are starting at 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Because shifting odds with magick takes energy you need a bunch of energy the longer the odds. Which is why in my practice I am taking the advice Gordon White over at Rune Soup and breaking my big goals down into small steps.  Each little goal is much easier to have influence than one massive goal.  Speaking of Gordon White, while you are listening to his podcast check out his book Chaos Protocols.  Great book on navigating life in our times with magick.

Another way to work with probabilities is to let go of control.  The odds of a successful magickal working may be much higher than you realize.  Assuming you do not insist on results showing up the way you think they should.

As an example, this is how I met my wife. For a number of years I had been searching for a type of connection I knew was out there somewhere. This really kicked in after a spontaneous energy initiation in 2001. One of those blow your circuits things that happened when I was alone in nature.

After the divorce from my first wife I started experiencing relationships which kept pointing in this energetic direction.  They just were not working out.  My intuition was at times screaming at me to not be involved with the woman in my life. Very confusing times. The odds seemed pretty low that I would ever meet my her.

One day I was standing in the shower and I did a small ritual. One of the keys to this ritual was I consciously dropped my criteria for a partner.  I asked for my partner, full stop.

She contacted me 2 and 1/2 days later.  A very significant time period by the way. One I have seen repeated in other work I have done as well as works of some of my colleagues.

As an aside: I had an on-line profile on a dating service which is where she found me.  A day later and it would have been deleted. I was seriously tired of dealing with dating.  I had created the profile as a possible route to find “her.”

After we met, we both experienced at least a few years of chaos due to living with the most intense energetic connection we could have imagined. Those familiar with the idea of soul mates will recognize the term Twin Flame. The heat of the Twin Flame connection is pretty good at incinerating non-productive ego patterns.

We survived though and are thriving.  Our connection on every level is intense. Without the personal growth work we had both done prior and continue to do we likely would have self-destructed.  Life can get pretty confusing when you can sense just about everything about your partner whether they are with you or 100 miles away.

One of the keys to why we were able to get together was in dropping my expectations she be a certain way. After letting go of control and trusting the process the magick, spirits, universe delivered my partner. I am quite sure whoever or whatever is in charge of these things was trying pretty hard to get me to wake up.  There were various obvious signs such as three months before we met I had met her in a dream where she had given me her name.

As you develop your magickal practice I am sure you will notice the same effect. Success is a progression where small successes lead us to larger ones. Eventually we arrive at our goal having followed a path we couldn’t have anticipated. Possibly, we find at the end of our work an even better result than we could have imagined.

How To Tap into Infinite Energy for Magick

Energy.  Magick.

Really the same thing.  Making changes in reality with your mind.  Can happen by choosing to pick up a hammer and building a bird house.  Or, by casting a spell or conducting a ritual.

Decide how you want to direct your energy or chi. Do it.

Where do you get this energy?  In the physical we need enough sleep, healthy food, and clean water (maybe a little coffee now and then) to keep our body and brain ready for action.  In the non-physical realms of chi and spirit we gather life force and emotion.  Some might lump those together.  I see emotion as an aspect of life force. Chi energy goes far beyond emotion.

How do we accumulate energy for rituals or casting spells?

Energy is flowing through reality constantly. Reality IS energy. All of our experiences and existence come from a pool of chaotic energy.

  • Meditation practices can help gather this energy.
  • Transmuting emotion is another effective process.
  • A number of traditions have specific exercises you can practice.
  • Freeing energy from our internal belief systems.
  • Channeling energy from other physical entities.
  • Channeling energy from non-physical.

While people use magick to change their external worlds.  Magick, in the end, changes us.  Some of the most effective ways to harvest energy from life are to change ourselves.  More specifically, change our belief systems which are taking energy to maintain.  Especially, beliefs we’ve accepted from others during the course of our lives. Even more powerfully, social taboos.

One very simple way to experience this change is with the clothes you wear.

  • Get dressed like you would be going to a job interview or dinner in the nicest restaurant in town.
  • Put on a pair of unicorn rubber boots.  Or boots with polka dots.
  • Put on a silly hat.
  • Go to the mall. Or grocery shopping. Or your kid’s soccer game.
  • Own it.  Show up and notice how you feel.
  • Notice how others react.

In the owning of the stepping outside of customs or norms you accumulate energy. Another source of energy is the feeling of people around you.  What they are projecting to you as a result of your showing up.

All of this energy can be gathered, cleaned,  stored, and redirected. Energy is just energy.  No matter the source. Your mind is probably filled with little belief systems sucking energy off you.  Just like the belief about what you should wear to a job interview.Release them and use the energy.

You are probably spending energy dealing with other people’s beliefs and energy which are directed at you.  Keeping your own beliefs intact while being flooded from other people takes a lot of energy. Use their energy.  Stopping taking whatever you are receiving personally allows you to use their energy.  Either back at them or for any other purpose.

Become a hunter and gatherer of energy. Sources are everywhere.

  • Locate the energy source.
  • Attract the energy.
  • Process the energy.
  • Redirect or store the energy.

Energy can be stored in objects, your own body, or non-physically.  Be careful.  You can make yourself sick or worse doing this incorrectly.

Having help from a spirit-type entity is also a good idea. They can help make the process very efficient and effective.

Experiment. Learn to sense energy physically. See it. Feel it. Touch it. Hear it. Smell it.  However works best for you. Play with it.

We haven’t even gotten to sex yet.  Sex, either solo or partnered is an incredible source of energy and place for learning and experimenting. Stay tuned.

Where Does Magick Happen?

This morning I was set on starting my blogging marathon. My goal is to produce something everyday to share on this blog. Something helpful and hopefully inspiring for you. The morning started out good with a nice 1/2 hour meditation before getting out of bed relaxed and centered. Good breakfast.

How did the writing go?

Not well at all.

Coming up blank all morning. With nothing but a downward spiral and evaporating inspiration I shifted my attention. Cruised Facebook then Twitter. Again. And again. Looked at web traffic stats. And on and on.

Eventually, I decided to do something besides fritter time on-line. Wednesday is one of my exercise days. Did my dumbbell weight lifting routine. Good workout.

Nothing. Not exactly nothing. I started writing about magick experiences and experiments during sex with my wife. Just couldn’t get things fleshed out.

Well. How about some ritual work? Ahhh. Something shifted. In the middle of one ritual I got the word Tango flashed at me.

Maybe something about Argentine Tango and magick? Could be. Though nothing really hit me. Off to an early lunch.

Then a shower.

As is often the case, water did the trick.  A stream of thoughts revolving around where magick happens showed up.  The ideas came first as I was thinking about an awards brunch I went to this week for brokers at the real estate firm where I work. One broker in particular is never in the office. First time I met him I thought he was a new broker. Which was momentarily exciting as  I had been the newest broker for quite a while. Which I still was 10 seconds later.

He gets all his business as a broker being out in the community. The reason this is so important to my writing today is that he is an example of where magick happens. I have no idea if he is into the occult. What I do know is he is putting his energy out into the world. As a result, he is part of the flow.

For magick to work we have to be out in the world in some manner. The Internet can be part of the answer.  You are reading this blog post somewhere other than at my desk in my home.

If you want to use magick to attract:

  • Love
  • Sex
  • Wealth and Money
  • Satisfying Career
  • Figure Out Your Life Purpose
  • to Meet Your Twin Flame or Soulmate
  • or pretty much anything else you eventually have to get out of the basement.

In my own life, I did a ritual (in the shower) to bring my partner to me. She found me on-line two days later. Part of the process of meeting and eventually marrying did happen from the comfort of our respective homes. We did need to have a first date to begin the process of seeing if we could be in an actual relationship.

Money or Career opportunities are the same way. They come to you through other people. When I do ritual work to attract prospects in real estate, I can do the ritual at home. Prospective clients find me though out in the world or in via my connections.

Magick is really good at shifting the odds for you in whatever you are attempting. Don’t stack the odds against yourself.  The more you can do to help increase your chances of success the more likely the magick you are using can help make your goals a reality.

Where does magick happen?

Magick happens inside yourself and in the outer world. The trick is to be able to do the working internally.  Feel what the positive change of realizing your goal feels like inside yourself.  When you are done you release and “forget” your goal in the ritual. What you remember as you go about your day is that reality is fundamentally magickal. You see the world magickally and magickal happenings are business as usual.  When things start happening you are awake and see results finding you. Usually from places and in ways you didn’t expect.

One exception which really isn’t an exception is during energetic work. The most effective energetic workings are when I bring the other person to me.  Reaching out to effect change isn’t nearly as impacting.  The process feels a lot like there is a vacuum between myself and the other.  The vacuum is created by my making internal space for the other to flow towards.

A very yin approach.  There is also something rather hologram like about the experience.  Everything is contained within everything.  There is no “There” to touch.  Everything is right here as part of me. Not working form that perspective really dulls the connection.

Sex with my wife is one place I really enjoy this practice.  Whether we are physically connected or not I will draw her into me energetically. Nearly every time I initiate this process she feels me.  Sexual union on another level of connection.

So where does magick happen?

Magick happens inside ourselves. Ultimately, magick changes us. The process of using magick for physical world results changes both us and the world.

Magick is both inside and outside yourself. What can be difficult with physical world workings is discerning what (or who) is happening where. From my own life I get opportunities pretty much everyday to practice this discernment. My wife and I have had a connection which was obvious from day one.  Frankly, I have a feeling more than a few people would be freaked out by how transparent we are to each other on all levels. Psychic, empathic, spiritual, energetic, you name it, we feel it. If you aren’t ready for such an experience you can get a serious case of vertigo around who is feeling or thinking what.

Where is all this magick happening?

To quote Albus Dumbledore, “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Or … maybe not?

Magick and Secrecy

How much do you talk about your magick with other people? When do you talk about your magick if you do?

This has been a dilemma for me for years. At first I was embarrassed because people thought I was strange and I cared about what they thought of me. This was when I was heavily focused on developing energetic skills after my initiation experience. The weirdness compared to ordinary life made integrating my growing awareness and sensitivities difficult. Telling people was plain awkward.

This week I am getting some more clarity around this idea of secrecy. For the last 3 or 4 months I have really upped my ritual and offerings practice.  The results have been astounding.  Life changing.  Even though magick has been helping me for years lately certain blocks in life are dissolving.  Mainly in the areas of wealth, finances, and career.

I would like to help other people change their lives as well.  Yes, there is a self-interest involved.  In helping others with magick I will be continuing to develop myself.

In order to help others I have to interact with them and let them know what I do.  How much and what do I share has been the question.  Time for Google! Reading about how other’s have been sharing and looking back at my own experiences after some time has passed helps.

Why Not To Share – Secrecy and Power

Secrecy can help a lot on the power cultivation side.  Sharing a process being planned or currently underway can definitely be counter-productive.  I suspect this has to do with how easily we unknowingly are influenced by other people. Direct interference by another person’s active attention and intention is another influence.  Between the two results can be anything from dismal to completely opposite what is desired.

Holding the secret definitely builds power.  You can feel it in your body.  Try it with just about any secret. Even negative secrets work.  The feeling is different between positive secrets and negative secrets for me.  A negative secret feels bad. Powerfully bad though doesn’t feel good. A positive secret can feel very empowering.

Emotional and energetic power can be transmuted into magickal work.

Practicing Magick and Being Part of the Rest of the World

Do we need to keep magickal secrets forever?  Is there anyone we can tell? What do we tell?

Some magick practices have little to do with the human world which is the case for a friend of mine. Hanging out at the local pub chatting about magick projects with strangers is probably not helpful. You just don’t know what baggage and belief systems you are going to have to defend against.  Which takes energy.

Magick for results in the physical world is a bit different.  Secrecy can still be helpful.  Seeing results and not telling how you got them IS powerful.

What else is powerful is stepping into the world and declaring yourself at the table so to speak. Confidence bordering on arrogance at times is helpful in getting results. Allowing your ego to run a muck on the other hand is not. This balance is important to figure out.

When ego is in charge crucial parts of ritual and magick like patience or focus are forgotten.  Ego has a place.  Denying all parts of ourselves is also limiting.  Figuring out how to channel the energy behind all these parts of ourselves is what’s important.  They are a serious source of power.

Action in the world is an important part of magick. We are tipping probabilities with magick.  We increase our chances of seeing physical world results by being in the physical world.

I want to help people learn to use magick in their lives.  In the process, I will be developing my own skills further and I will be getting paid.  If I don’t tell people what I do and the results I and my clients get this will not happen. I won’t be able to help help anyone and I won’t see results in my life either.

Magick is your birthright as a human.

 

Meditation for Twin Flame Telepathic Heart Connections

Not long ago, in the middle of the night, I wanted to feel her closer to me.  Yeah, she was a couple feet away in our bed. Still, sometimes you just can’t get enough snuggling!

There is an energy meditation I like use to invite her to me in situations like this one. When I do she usually rolls over so we can snuggle some more. Being able to call to each other at a heart level in itself feels good let alone the physical closeness we share when she responds.

Why don’t I just roll over myself? I respect her need for sleep. Her health and happiness are a priority for me. Sleep is top priority for maintaining both.

This time something new and wonderful happened. When I made my heart invitation to her that night she placed her hand over my heart to flow energy for a few minutes.

Pure bliss! The warm glow of her energy reassured whatever wanted her closer that everything was fine. Just recalling the moment brings back the peaceful feeling of being cared for so deeply.

The technique for inviting your partner is really simple. Still, it may take some practice.

Warning: Trying this with people you are not in sync with can open you up to all sorts of painful lessons. The flow of energy can be very destabilizing if done at a depth either people are not ready to experience.

  • Focus on your breath. Allow everything else in your mind to drift by without judgement.
  • Relax. Physical tension blocks most communication. Relax as and be aware of the state of tension and lack of tension in your body.
  • Feel your energy flowing using whatever sense is most comfortable. Personally, I am quite visual and kinesthetic and am describing this process from that perspective.
  • Visualize you and your Twin’s heart energy and chakra as one energy system. Be aware of and see the interweaving and oneness of you and your Twin’s heart energy.
  • Intuitively feel yourself create a space for your TF. This space is an intuitive sense and will have the quality of drawing them to you.
  • Hold the space, the feelings, and the intention without expectation.
  • Snuggle up!

The fundamental idea of this meditation is in the invitation. This approach is quite receptive, very yin. I found a yang approach of projecting my energy wasn’t nearly as productive as making an invitation. Energy has been more effective worked with instead of commanded. Everything happens in my heart work space.

I use a similar process when I do energy work. Whatever level I am working with the idea is to make an invitation. Often, something does happen. I am intentionally not imposing my will so the results can be unexpected. Which is okay. Be unattached to results. Hold the space.

Why does this meditation work?

First, with a Twin Flame you already have a natural connection. You are in sync on all levels. Vibrations match for you two. Anything energetic work related is much simpler between you and your TF.

Of course, unresolved issues can get in the way. Anything that causes tension for an individual has the potential of reducing the effectiveness of your intention. Also, mental distractions or diverted attention are very effective at shutting down the awareness of the connection and the energy flowing.

Second as I described above the act of inviting can be very powerful. Creating a vacuum for the other to fill is very effective. A pushing force creates a reactive push against. Push your intent and you risk a push against your intent. Guide energy, attract energy, hold space for energy.

Third, related to the first point, you are of the same soul as your twin. Yes, one is masculine and one is feminine. The most natural partner for either to flow energy and intention with is their original complement. You are one, like two eyes share the same body. One sees from the feminine perspective. The other from the masculine perspective. As one.

You are meant to dance together. As one.
