Raising and Using Energy
Energy is a real force that permeates the universe, it is essential for any type of magical work to be successful and it is yours to experience and control. Before we go too far it is probably a good idea to show you what we mean by energy and energy raising. Please read through the following exercise and then give it a try.
Sit in a comfortable place free of distractions and in an upright posture with your back away from the back of your seat (no slouching).
Hold your hands at about shoulder height and width in front of you with your palms facing each other. You may feel free to close your eyes for this next part if it aids in your visualization.
Visualize a ball of energy between your hands, imagine it just floating in the air.
After holding it in your mind for a few seconds have it float toward one hand and then back to the other one. Have the energy ball move back and forth faster and faster like a Ping-Pong ball.
Next we want the ball to start moving in a circle clockwise between your hands. Do this for a while varying the speed and the size of the circle to get a feel for it.
After a few minutes have the ball of energy enter your right hand and travel through your body and out your left hand, continuing back into the circle.
When you are ready bring the ball to a rest between your hands and feel free to open your eyes.
Now I want you to move your hands slowly together, you should feel some resistance as they move closer.
This feeling is the energy that we speak of. In order to strengthen your energy you
need to develop your skills of concentration, visualization and your overall health.
While there is no "three-fold law” there are three basic STEPS to working magick.
- You raise the energy
- You program the energy
- You direct the energy.
When you begin directing the energy, you should continue to program it, while you visualize it doing what you want it to do.
Look around you, everything you see, your computer screen, your chair, your bed... everything you see was once someone's idea before it materialized into a physical form in reality. As with science, for example storms manifest on their own; hot humid air colliding with cold, dry air for example, but the majority of everything here was once someone's idea.
Let's begin with step one. First, you have to have energy to work with, and the stronger the energy the better. The stronger your own energy, the more energy you will naturally be able to raise, direct, and handle. The more experienced you are, the easier this becomes. All of this is like working a muscle. The more you work with it, the stronger it becomes. You can either use your own energies, or use external energies by invoking them.
For white magick you will more than likely want to use your own energy and connect with the working.
Using Runes and vibration is one of the quickest and most powerful ways of raising energy. Other ways are using the foundation meditation or through just visualization. You raise the energy and should feel it strongly, throughout your entire body. Other ways include Hatha yoga, Tai Chi and/or breathing exercises of your choice.
To invoke energy form an external source, you can do this when you have enough experience by focusing upon what you want to draw energy form and “breathing” in the energy from it.
Step Two, you must program the energy. Tell it what you want it to do. Energy all by itself is pretty much neutral and inert. You must use affirmations. Affirmations are short, to the point phrases in the present tense that are repeated to program the energy. The present tense must be used because energy does not have the reasoning power to understand "will happen." "Will” can be at any time. To make something manifest, you must visualize and direct it as if it is already here and happening.
For example: You don't want to say "_____ will come to me." Instead, you want to say "________IS coming to me now."
Energy does not have the reasoning power as to *HOW* what you want is coming to you. Energy takes the path of least resistance, unless it is programmed. For example, you want more money. Don't just affirm "Money is coming to me." This could manifest, if undirected, say on a job where you handle money, like a cashier for example, or through your paycheck, as usual. That is the easiest way. You have to further affirm: "Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me." "This money is all mine to keep and spend as I wish." You should also affirm "in a very positive and happy way for me." You don't want a loved one to die and leave you an inheritance or get the money in a way that would be unpleasant. So your affirmation would go something like this: "Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me. This money is all mine to keep and spend as I please. This money is coming to me in a very positive and happy way for me."
Affirmations should be repeated with intent, three to ten times or more, in your mind. You can also visualize energy as with step three, throughout the day and state your affirmations a few times to reinforce the working. ALWAYS REMEMBER: ENERGY TAKES THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE AND DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO REASON.
Step three, you direct the energy. You do this through visualization. Energy using white magick should be visualized as a white-gold light, shining brilliant like the Sun. The white-gold is the astral energy that you infuse the intent of your visualizations with. This infuses energy into your working so that it manifests in the material world. You need to visualize this brilliant energy either around your entire self and/or around whatever it is that you want. Visualize in your mind whatever it is that you wish to manifest and that it is OCCURRING NOW and visualize the energy lighting it up.
For example, with attracting money, you would want to visualize the money [your wallet full, or whatever], even *feel* and *smell* the money, touch it; the more realistic your visualizations are and the more astral senses you use, the more effective the working will be, and infuse it with as much energy as you can, the more brilliant, the better, using your visualization. Feel happy emotions.
For health, direct the energy to the afflicted organ, and visualize yourself as healthy and happy. Again, FEEL happy, while you are doing the working, as if it is already so. Now, forget about the working and try to think of other things. This can be difficult in desperate situations, but do the best you can, because worry and obsessing over a working can undo the energy you put into it. Just let it go and know it is working. The only exception to this is visualizing the energy as with step three, throughout the day and state your affirmations a few times to reinforce the working. Just don't obsess over it, as this is a lack of faith in your own power and can dilute the energy or ruin the working. This sort of thing takes practice like anything else.
For black magick, you do not want to come into contact with any negative energy you raise. Those who do not have knowledge do this sort of thing and suffer many times for it. The answer to everything is knowledge.
Grey energy is the most devastating. Grey energy is also death energy. It causes illnesses and all sorts of negative things. For example, in working a death spell. Take the death energy from a cemetery or anywhere there is death and pull it out of the ground, using visualization. Program it, as in step two, for example, "The grey death energy is destroying_______." Do this while you are infusing it into the individual you wish to do away with. This must be done many times on a regular basis.
What is necessary are the strength of your own soul, your will and directing the energy.
On a lesser note, those who deliberately try to do you harm in your life, simply direct their own energy right back to them, using the grey tones. Sit back and watch them suffer and revel in it. Black magick is for bringing about justice.
