Let’s Talk Witch – Body of Intent


Celtic & British Isles Graphics
Body of Intent

Everything and everyone has a body of intent, a form of will and intent that maps how our mind and our physical bodies are built and in general how we interact within the physical world. Everything exists because of this deeper level of intent. This is not the general term for intent you might find in a dictionary, but a much deeper level of intent, an active level, the true meaning of intent, an expressive, participating, active version, rather then the simplistic version commonly expressed.

 

This type of intent is used to express every facet of who we are and how we move through the world, just as each atom, molecule, cell, and larger object uses intent. This expression is done not by one point of intent but by many points. Each aspect of an atom is an expression of intent within the physical. And not just protons, neutrons, and electrons, but also of the motion of the atom itself and the many ways it interacts with other atoms around it. As such all of the varies expressions of intent used by someone or something is refereed to as the body of intent.

From early on this Body of Intent determines the order processes are started in our physical self, it directs cells to choose which DNA patterns to use. This in turn determines the anatomy of an individual from conception on through life. As each cell dies off and is replaced, this intent sends signals to a new stem cell telling it what functions to perform.

The physical cells then use the resources available to it within the body to maintain that body on the information contained in the DNA and chosen by the Body of Intent . This is the reason why good nutrition is so important in building and maintaining the basic structure of the body, and how our bodies are tied to the physical. Yet each cell in our body is an individual unto itself working with us for mutual benefit and expression.

Learning to manipulate Intent in others or ones self is the same process as learning to walk. You can see some of this with the facial changes and even eye color changes of some multiple personality patients. Some personalities may acquire a disease within the body while other personalities show no signs of said disease. In those moments, those cells show up as a separate distinct Body of Intent within the patients Body of Intent, as if two or more fields of intent are present, which is really the case.

As the physical body breaks down our Body of Intent and awareness separate and loose their influence or focus within the physical, however a Body of Intent still exist for each cell within the body that the cell belonged to, as well as each atom of that cell. Because of this graduation to larger forms, the Body of Intent of an Individual appears to be so much denser closer to the physical body. It’s only when disease takes place which is not in cooperation with a forms larger Body of Intent that you see striations that are not your own , this is what some observers sense when looking for a disease in someone, however each of these people uniquely express this information to themselves through the filter of there basic sense’s.

 

But intent is so much more then the physical, it shows up in the mental as well, from the structure of our mind, our emotions and thoughts, to the formations of beliefs and the awareness and perspective we have of all of this. Yet we have to be careful here as well. Because thoughts are tricky until you understand what is intended by that word, and that’s my next point . Verbal thoughts or word thoughts are attempts to translate real thoughts emotions and beliefs into bits of information, pictures, and described sensations using a different perspective, words. This of course means, while verbal thoughts and words are real in there own way , they are only attempts to represent true thoughts and have almost no real power. Think of verbal thoughts like this, if you are in an accident were you get physically hurt, that is a true thought, but if you are looking at a picture of an accident that is a verbal thought. Yes you can trigger the effects of a true thought on the body by using verbal thoughts if you are familiar with or have in some way experienced an accident, but that’s not the same thing as a true thought , that’s a reminder of or a re-experiencing of a true thought.

WOTC Extra – Touching Your Core of Power

Fantasy Images

Touching Your Core of Power

 

To touch your core we must get into a relaxed state. For this exercise you will need the following things:

1. Straight back chair
2. A coffee table (that is free of clutter)
3. A glass of water
4. Incense of any kind and a holder
5. Tranquil (instrumental) music.
Before you begin this meditation, make sure that you start your music, sit in your chair and light your incense and place it in the holder and then place it on the coffee table, yet out of your direct line of sight.

Place the glass of water before you, and begin to relax. Take as much time as you need to relax before beginning the meditation.

Now we are ready to begin.

Sitting in your chair bring your attention to the glass of water before you. Breathe at your normal pace. Gently gaze at the whole glass, as well as its contents. Do not strain your vision simply acknowledge the glass of water with your sense of sight.

As you are gazing at the glass of water, also become aware of the music that is playing, as well as any other sound that you might hear in your surroundings. Simply hear the music while you are staring at the glass of water.

As you are gazing at the glass of water and listening to the music, also notice the smell of the incense, simply notice that you smell the incense while gazing at the glass of water and listening to the music.

As you gaze at the glass of water, listening to the music and smelling the incense, also become aware of your whole body. Simply feel your whole body, while gazing at the glass of water, listening to the music and smelling the incense.

Continue in this fashion, seeing the glass of water, hearing the music, smelling the incense and feeling your whole body. You will begin to feel as if you are being pulled in every direction, while at the same time your senses will feel as if they are revolving around some unknown center.

Close your eyes and sit in this relaxed state. Let go of the senses. Simply sit in this space. You have entered into the core of your being. Don’t think; simply be in this space.

Bring your attention back to your body, and slowly open your eyes. When you are ready, take a drink from the glass of water and this completes the exercise.

Once again , the goal of touching your core is to link you to the source of your power. Overtime and with a little practice, you will be able to bridge into your core vibration within seconds. Often times, I can touch my core, simply by hearing everything in my surroundings. I will usually feel a sensation of lightness and hear a static sound in my inner ears, which lets me know that I have touched my core.

The glass of water at the end of the exercise was only utilized to bring the sense of taste into the practice. If you choose to you can completely forgo this step, however you could also use this final step as a magical spell in its own right. For your first bit of magick, think of a specific goal, while focusing on the glass of water; see the water as your goal; as one and the same. Perform the rest of the exercise the same as before, but around your specific desire, represented as the glass of water.

When you take in the water you will take in your desire, which in time will be fulfilled.

Let’s Talk Witch – The Core of your Being

Fantasy Images

The Core of your Being

 

It may be gathered by this point, that the power of magick is the power of your personal will. In order to successfully cast a spell, the magician must come into contact with the center of their being, which will imbue life into the desires expressed through the spells they cast. I call this level of consciousness The Core.

When I speak of the core, I am referring to a place within us that is beyond our bodies and beyond our thoughts and emotions. It is a place of stillness within. We are not unfamiliar with this notion. Terms such as “the Force” , as well as “ the Power” seek to explain the essence of this energy that is the power behind all that exist.

The Core is the essential force inside of us. It is from this core that all magick begins. To cast a successful spell, there needs to be power behind the spell and the core is that source of power. Anything that we place within the center of our being will grow from within us; outwards in all directions and it will eventually show up in our lives as a manifestation, or a successfully executed spell.

Over the years I have began to practice a state of being that I term as touching my core. The neutrality of this space calms the mind, so it is the starting place for all of my mystical endeavours, such as prayer, contemplation, or more advanced forms of magick such as spell work and elemental or spiritual magick, such as summoning and interacting with spiritual forces.

The energy in this state of being is inexhaustible because it is the beginning of everything that you really are, before the programming that came at a later stage, just as the universe was in a state of darkness, until the first emanation of light.

The Core holds every potential creation. It is your personal reservoir of power, because it corresponds directly to the center of the universe outside of yourself. The easiest way to access this core is to start with the aspect of ourselves that is always readily available to us: the five human senses. Our five senses; the act of feeling, hearing , seeing, smelling, and tasting can act as a springboard that will help lift us into our core vibration; the seat of our power within us.

Our senses are observational tools that help us to witness our external world , yet at the same time, our senses can help bridge us into the world within. Once we find a way to flow through our senses, while at the same time building upon them, we will begin to notice a neutral space within them. Not only will the senses seem to flow around this neutral core, the core itself will also be felt within each individual sense.

WOTC Extra – Remembering To The Do The Exit Ritual

Celtic & British Isles Graphics
REMEMBERING TO THE DO THE EXIT RITUAL

 

Remembering to do the Exit Ritual can be the one of the hardest parts of this beautiful ritual of contact with powers and beings. Benjamin Franklin said that it took at least 21 days to form a new habit. Many spiritual teachings emphasize 40 days as the amount of time needed to imbed something into your experience. So, if you are feeling frustrated by your own forgetfulness, take a breath and relax. We all forget to do rituals the beginning.

To help yourself remember, you might buy a pack of sticky notes and post reminders to yourself on your doors (so that you see them as you go outside) and on the rearview mirror of your car. These will prompt you to remember. Alternately, program your smart phone to remind you. Also, if you find yourself driving in your car and realize that you have forgotten to do the Exit Ritual, pull your car over to the side of the road and stop. Take the time, then and there , to get out of your car and do it. Once you have to stop your car a few times you’ll begin to remember!

Good luck and keep up the effort— the rewards are worth all the effort! Here’s the Exit Ritual again, compressed into four short lines to make it easier to remember:

Sky Above [extend attention into sky]
And Earth Below [extend attention into earth, keeping it in sky also]
I Greet You. [keep attention in both sky and earth]
[Pause a minute after saying this]
“I am amazed at the powerful pull I felt from
the sky and the earth as I did this exercise. I have never felt that kind of power before. I don’t have a clue what it means, but I can’t wait to practice this ritual some more. I have tried many spiritual rituals, but this is by far the most real response I have received.”

Let’s Talk Witch – The Exit Ritual & How To Do It

Celtic & British Isles Graphics
The Exit Ritual & How To Do It

 

The Exit Ritual is a contact and greeting ritual that reconnects us to powers and beings. People call powers and being by all kinds of different names: Universe, God, Higher Power, Angels, Totem Spirits etc. It doesn’t matter what view you take, just know what there are higher beings that exist all around who cannot wait to help you out!

Connecting with powers and beings is useful because they can help you get back into that feeling of peace and serenity. They exist a higher level than we do, so it’s often easier to ask them for help rather than trying to “do it all” ourselves. The Exit Ritual also realigns our chi or life force, which can become distorted from working and living in buildings with strong electromagnetic fields.

How to Do The Exit Ritual:

To do the Exit Ritual, follow this procedure every time you leave an enclosed space such as a car, building or house:

1. Extend your focus up into the sky and say aloud, “Sky Above.” The reason we extend our focus first is that the Exit Ritual is a form of making contact with and asking favor from powers and beings. Thus it is appropriate that we go to them (with our focus) rather than asking them to come to us. In ritual, we only invite powers and beings to come to us after we have carefully prepared an appropriate sacred space for them. Once we have completed the ritual, we then thank them, and then bid them farewell. Because we don’t want to go to all that trouble, in this case we simply extend our focus first, and then make contact.
2. While keeping your awareness above, extend your focus into the Earth and say aloud, “And Earth Below.”
3. Then, keeping awareness of both above and below, say aloud, “I Greet You.”
4. Wait a moment and see what happens. Be alert for acknowledgement or response in one of these three ways:
-from within you, such as a realization, a change of attitude or belief, a new awareness
-changes in your environment, such as a sudden breeze, a change in the color of the sky, a bird or animal suddenly appearing visually or vocally, or a tree or shrub suddenly becoming vividly visible
-a response from Sky and/ or Earth: a special message for you, an answer to a question, or guidance and new directions. Note that this message may sound like a voice in your own mind. This is perfectly normal. What will be different is that the message will usually be different than what you say to yourself.
What happens may happen in just that moment, or it may happen throughout the day. It may change the quality of your day, your awareness… whatever you notice. You may also want to use arm gestures. Arms raised in a upward facing V for “Sky Above” and arms down in a downward facing V for “Earth Below.”

WOTC Extra – Preparation for RItual


Dragon Comments & Graphics

PREPARATION FOR RITUAL

 

Inevitably there are certain things to remember before the ritual proper begins. While you are preparing for the ritual, when putting on your robes or ritual gowns you might spend time in reflection, silent meditation or prayer. Prior to the beginning of any ritual, and while enrobing concentrate on the matter in hand, if the ritual has a special intent. Alternatively, simply focus on the Supreme Being, Cosmic Responsibility and/or a successful outcome and ask that the event to follow helps you in your learning.

There is no limit to what can be worn in a ritual. Some groups will suggest white robes with black cords or vice versa for everyone, thus ensuring that everyone starts off on an equal footing. Others may designate certain colours for leaders of the group and other colours for trainees, while yet others will simply suggest that you are comfortable in what you wear. Many people will spend a great deal of time, energy and effort on fashioning suitable robes, and we suggest that you use sigils and symbols appropriate to your own beliefs.

The idea is that when working magically you leave behind the ordinary mundane world, so you will probably prefer to turn off mobile phones, put away keys and name tags and remove money from pockets and so on. It will be a matter of group preference as to whether you wear jewelry or not. In some circles, magical jewelry such as the pentagram, the ankh or rings with magical symbols or significance may be allowed while in others they are not. Many groups will not allow the use of watches, since time is considered irrelevant.

It is often better not to use perfume or cologne unless it is based on essential oils which are suitable for the work in hand, or complement any incense being used.

Let’s Talk Witch -Working Magick as a Group


Dragon Comments & Graphics

Group Working

 

Rather than working as a Solitary practitioner, many people will seek a community of like-minded individuals on the basis that their own individual powers are thus enhanced. We give a method of group working, although it is very easy to adjust this for work on an individual basis. The rituals used for a group represent a cooperative act of worship which widens the scope of the ceremony to encompass larger objectives than just the personal; we can then consider our joint responsibility for the world in which we live and a more universal perspective. At the same time, through working in a group, a more focused atmosphere can be created – a raising of consciousness so that each participant receives wisdom and energy commensurate with their needs and understanding. True initiation into the mysteries of magic for instance, is a private silent process, but an initiation ceremony accompanied by ritual can be seen as a more formal process for marking unmistakable long-term changes in the consciousness of the practitioner.

The purpose of rituals used in this way is to create an inspiring and expressive atmosphere in which to give life and meaning to the connection between the ordinary and the sublime. Symbolism takes on a meaningful existence and through colour, sound, movement and imagination, becomes a vibrant language of the soul. Rituals help us to do several things:

1. To learn the proper application of a basic structure for personal use and to understand the relevance of ritual.
2. To increase an understanding of the flow of energy which we experience and to develop confidence in the use of symbols.
3. To contribute to the group awareness of members thus helping them make the best use of their individual and group powers.
4. To create spiritual and emotional conditions where initiation on an inner level is accepted and experienced and where we can accept heightened states of awareness as the norm.
5. To use knowledge of ritual and power as a way of achieving personal spiritual health, so that the rituals themselves eventually become unnecessary and are recognized simply as a way of gaining access to the ultimate. They may then be replaced by direct experience.

By using the same rituals for both individual and group work these are seen as complementary and members of the group are able to enhance their experience on both a personal and shared level. We can take the insights gained from group work into the personal sacred space and come into contact with an awareness of a new level of activity and vice versa. A magical ritual is far superior if it succeeds without side effects and therefore can be shocking if there are untoward results. Traditional forms of magical ritual – often first taught in a group situation – tap a basic and, if misunderstood, possibly dangerous force which has to be channeled and directed properly. Group work can form a training arena which is also protected to enable the fledgling magician to learn the craft.

WOTC Extra – Grounding and Centering


Witchy Comments & Graphics
Grounding and Centering

Your spell is done. The energies have been released, you’ve cleaned up after yourself and the magic is free to do its thing. The very next step is to ground yourself. Grounding and centering is often missed or skipped over and yet is one of the first things any witch should learn . If you’re not grounded it can cause all sorts of problems in all areas of your life.

A few years ago, I took part in a ritual where I was Air. We weren’t just calling the elements, we were invoking them.

Invoking is an often misunderstood word— in this case, I was embodying the element so for the ritual I was Air, not just a representative. The ritual was lovely but grounding didn’t happen very well. My friend who was another element, didn’t ground properly either. We found ourselves outside after midnight in Winter, wearing light sleeveless dresses and feeling very silly, giggly and quite euphoric. It took a week or so before I came back down to earth’ and re balanced myself. I’ve made an effort ever since to ensure that I ground thoroughly when I’ve finished anything magical.

There are many ways to ground. Food is one simple and good way— carbohydrates especially, although chocolate works well too. This is why cakes and ale come at the end of a ritual. When we used to do open sabbats we’d finish the night with a pot luck feast. Running your hands under cold water also works, as does rubbing them on the ground. Gardening and physical exercise are also good grounding activities. You might like to try a tree visualization where you see your roots going into the earth and returning the excess energy that you don’t need can be useful, but be aware that if you’re brimming with energy and feeling flighty then the focus required may be hard to maintain.

Centering yourself requires that you find your center and pull your energy into it. Some people feel their center to be their heart, others feel it in their solar plexus or belly. You will know when you find it—it feels like your true core. Being centered is being in a calm, balanced and serene place. You have energy, but not that restless twitchiness where you are itching to be off doing things.
