Powers That You Need for Magick

Powers You Need for Magick

 

Like miracles, magick doesn’t always accomplish what we want. Sometimes the practitioner is just not ready or strong enough, and sometimes, things just are not meant to be. There is a certain cycle to all life and regardless of how much we desire to change it, it is not always possible. A friend of mine wrote something to me once that made me realize that sometimes special people are “given” to us for only a short period of time, so that they might learn from us and us from them, before going on to the next incarnation or “heaven” if you prefer. Sometimes having a special person in your life is a “gift”, but one that just isn’t meant to last forever. Magick is also like that. Some of us are ready and some of us are not. But for those of you that are, you will need a few things to begin. And those things are your Powers.

Before going on, take this into consideration. Visualization is very important to magick. You can not perform magick without it. With the simple power of visualization via meditation, you can rearrange the atoms in your body to produce better health conditions. You can consciously ” feel” your way through the human body and manipulate your cellular structure solely by the power of your thought waves. (More on this later: See link at bottom of page) You can visualize the illness or trouble spot fading and diminishing until it finally dissolves completely and the excretory system carries it away into nothingness. Once you have accomplished this, it transforms itself into reality. Others can also help to boost the process by sending out their thought waves, prayers, dedications, declarations, etc into the Universe to co-mingle with yours. In fact, the more energy, the better off you are. You just have to redirect those atoms and form them into a different pattern. And this is done by “magick”. And as I mentioned above, to do this you need your powers. You will find them listed below.

The Power of Belief: First, you must believe. You can not go into this with total disbelief because to do so is to admit defeat from the beginning. If you can emit strong believing thought patterns and emotions, then the liklihood of them taking shape is much greater than not. You must be able to “see” your request or desire taking shape in your mind and you must believe in yourself to do this. The Power of Belief can turn out to be an incredible thing.

The Power of Declarations: You must declare your intentions completely but firmly. Make sure to be as detailed as possible. You are sending out a declaration to the cosmos, so let’s get it started off on the right foot, shall we?

The Power of Attention: Attention is something that not many of us put a whole lot of work into. When you are learning to meditate and focus, to concentrate and control, attention must be foremost in your actions. When you begin a healing, you must pay attention before, during, and afterwards to your body or your patient’s body. To diagnose and heal, you must make yourself fully aware of all that is happening. And you must learn to control you own thoughts and emotions, so you must pay attention to these things specifically.

The Power of Positive Thinking: Focus your thoughts and free them of negativity . If your thought patterns are full of fear, then you will attract this type of energy back to yourself….. just as you do out in social situations. In public, if you smile at people, most will smile back but if you scowl, they either scowl back or totally ignore you. Being scowled at or ignored is not your goal. Likewise if you transmit thoughts full of love and trust, you will attract this also. You must try to free your mind of all negative energy and meditation can help you do this.

The Power of Responsibility: Taking responsibility means accepting that what you do is your own decision and no one elses. It means taking consequences for what you do or cause to happen, and not putting it off on the nearest “victim”. “He made me do it”, or “But I thought it was the truth…” are not acceptable excuses.

In fact, anytime you do something, no matter what you were told or thought, you are solely responsible for what takes place from then on out. Responsibility means “bucking up” and meeting situations head on and with fervor. Don’t put things on the back burner. Take charge of your life. And once you do, make the most of it. In this way, you prepare yourself for whatever work you must accomplish, and you also realize that if you don’t make things happen, then nobody else is going to do it for you.

The Power of Repetition: Once you have determined your goals, you need to focus on them over and over. Repetitive actions only make the process stronger. It may be called Magick, but you still can’t get it just by twitching your nose or blinking your eyes, so put some oomph into it. Repeat those thoughts and emotions.

The Power of the People: It is possible to do many things by yourself, but it never hurts to have extra resources on hand when needed. The more people that aid you in your healing, the better. They don’t even have to be present. In fact, this might disturb things in an unpleasant manner for you or your patient. The more people sending out their thought waves, prayers, dedications, declarations, etc into the Universe to co-mingle with yours, the better off you are. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. People might surprise you.

Now that you have been armed with your powers, make the most of them.

The Spirit and Magick

The Spirit and Magick

 

Like the God & Goddess, we are all  three-part beings. You have a body, “mind”, and soul.

The BODY is self-explanatory.

The “MIND” holds a consciousness, a subconsciousness, and a super-consciousness. 

 

Your internal self is a SOUL or a spirit. You may be “all” these things, but you are still “ONE” person. Getting clearer?

This portion of you, the soul, is within the body. A larger, multidimensional portion of you, called the Higher Self exists simultaneously outside the body at all times, and in all places, and in all incarnations.

Everything, Mind, Body, Soul and the Higher Self is a part of the Creator as well. Entertwined you become the energy known as Akasha. This is what creates Magick or Miracles. This is personal empowerment. The all-encompassing spirit!!

In doing magick of any kind, you are going to have to use all of yourself, the consciousness, a subconsciousness, and a super-consciousness to visualize, meditate, focus, and practice what you need to know and do, along with the forces of nature. Air (one of the elements and one used frequently) may be what transports that new thoughtwave or bit of electrical energy that you are planning on sending out to it’s newest destination. That will mean that the atoms of air, the atoms of you, the atoms of the Spirit will all be in contact at the time, moving, exchanging, changing etc. Magick will not come if you can not learn to use all of the above together at the appropriate times.

In other words, if you put your whole self into what you are doing, use all the “energy” from that weary old brain (all areas of consciousness’) that you can muster, and all the feeling from that still-beating heart, you can generate some powerful energy. Energy that no one but you is in control of….as long as you can also learn how to focus it and direct it.

The Origin of Magick

The Origin of Magick

Author: Crick   

Have you ever wondered about the origins of magick?
By magick I am not referring to the stage tricks employed by various entertainers for our amusement, but rather the energy which numerous cultures and belief systems have tapped into in order to manifest their various objectives.

This universal gift is known by many different names depending on which culture/belief system one looks at. It may be known simply as magick, prayers, miracles, life force, juju, karma and so forth.
For the purpose of this article it will be referred to as energy.

Have you ever wondered if such energy was a latent presence here on earth prior to the arrival of humankind? Residing here as an ancient primordial force, which was patiently waiting for sentient beings to discover its presence and purpose.

And if it was here prior to the arrival of human beings, did it serve an active purpose in the shaping of life and/or the creation of events that allowed for said life to begin? Was this primordial energy an essence that was introduced by Deity by way of a direct involvement with what we know as life? Or was it a side effect that formed as a result of actions taken by Deity during the course of said activities?

Or perhaps it is a development that manifested itself with the advent of humans? Could it be that the life force that we know as spirit introduced this energy into the life process in order to provide us with opportunities to expand our spiritual awareness and/or connection with alternate realms?

And if this is the case, why do you suppose that such a tool for growth and/or communication is so under utilized?

I say this because in society today, folks tend to become less connected with the world around them and more absorbed with the part of the self that is influenced by the individual ego.

And if this is a tool for growth and communication, why is it that those folks who actually use this energy for this purpose are spurned and looked upon with suspicion and in many cases with outright disdain by others in society? Witchcraft in essence, embodies the concepts and principals in the use of such energy.

And yet the word “witch” brings out and runs the gauntlet of emotions and perceptions of humanity as a whole. And depending on which side of the fence one stands, a witch is either an evil and vile creature or a person who is in touch with and resonates with the universal energies of which magick is a major part of.

Where does this fear of the unknown come from?

Was the ego installed into our souls as a balance to such a powerful tool? Has the balance shifted too far to one side of our souls?

As humans we readily employ magick in our various endeavors, but do we really understand its origins and what exactly is that we are using as a tool? Could the ego be a safety mechanism that has been allowed for whatever reasons, to exceed its purpose?

In some cultures, magick known as prayers is used as a means of communication with Deity. Does magick have but one specific intended use? And if so, are all other uses of such energy but an abuse of its original intended use?

Within these same cultures, when an event that is normally beyond the capacity of mere mortals, occurs, it is called a miracle.

Are these so called miracles really but a form of the same energy that others would call magick? Can we as humans in fact manifest these miracles by employing this energy? Or should such manifestations be the sole province of deity?

And while we are on the subject, does this energy have a shelf life?

Does it become stronger with use, opening even more avenues of discovery and power as one venture along the path, or does it weaken from non-use and/or the cultural disbelief in such a power?

Or is it simply a neutral tool offered by the powers to be, with many different attachments waiting to be realized by humanity.

Regardless of what name we call this energy or by what concept we use to identify with it, this gift has surpassed all boundaries of cultural, religious and societal beliefs. It is found in all aspects and fiber of this existence that we call life. It is a dominant force, often in a passive way, in basically everything that we do as humans. As such we may most likely only achieve but a peripheral understanding of such a complicated and diverse force.

Perhaps one day when we become as one with deity, a more comprehensive understanding of such a gift will be made known to us. But until such a revelation is proffered by the powers that be, we should always strive to understand as much as we are able to in order to effectively use such energy in a way that is both constructive and meaningful to our personal lives and not only our personal lives but to those around us as well.

As members of a diverse community, we have a responsibility to contribute to the health and well being of our community. Because of the diversity of society, there will always be divergent views as to what this energy is or in how it is to be used. But at the end of the day, how we use such energy is still an individual decision.

There are certain pagans, in particular Wiccans, who believe that whatever energy is sent out will return to the originator threefold.
As a traditional witch, I personally am not so sure that such a transfer is so cut and dry, but in general such a concept is a good yardstick or learning curve to adhere to.

I personally do not consider myself a master for I do not believe in such a being outside of deity. Rather I am a student of life with lots of questions. For without such questions there are no answers.
And quite frankly I don’t have answers to many of the questions that I have asked here. What few answers I may have are based upon my personal life experiences.

As pagans we are each individual and thus should answer such questions as they pertain to each person in regards to ones own beliefs and practices…

Magick For Your Needs

Magick For Your Needs

‘Enough for my needs and a little more’ is another of the maxims of this incredibly moral craft, as I mentioned earlier. You would be amazed the number of times I am asked: ‘Okay, if you are a witch, how come you can’t predict the lottery numbers?’ The answer is that it all comes down to need: and do I need a million pounds? True, like any mother of five children I lurch from one financial crisis to the next and when things get really dire, perhaps I could magically bring forward an anticipated payment or attract an unexpected windfall from abroad. But I don’t really need a million pounds. And what about the negative effects? If I became incredibly rich, I would almost certainly lose the incentive to write. Credit card bills are a powerful focus for creativity. And, of course, my kids would never get out of their satin-sheeted beds.

Lotteries are generated by human hands primarily for the purpose of making money for their creators. They really are random affairs and so it often happens that it is the wealthy people who win even more money – although that does not necessarily bring happiness.

Casting your needs into the cosmos and trusting they will be met does work, but not if you are expecting magick to compensate for an unnecessary shopping binge. Nor, after a period of overeating and no exercise, can you expect a miracle diet to work so that you shed a stone in two days while still eating chocolate. Spells tend to work best when there is a genuine need, generated by real emotion and linked to determination on a practical level.

Magick And Knowledge

Magick And Knowledge

White witchcraft is essentially the process of drawing on ancient wisdom and powers via the collective mind that we as individuals can spontaneously but unconsciously access in our dreams and visions. In magick, we can use rituals and altered states of consciousness to access this cosmic memory bank at will and in doing so, some believe, draw on the accumulated powers of many generations, especially in healing magick.

This cosmic consciousness – or Great Mind or akashic record, as theosophists call it – is perhaps what made it possible for pyramids to be built at almost the same time in lands as far apart as Egypt and South America, and for shamanism to follow similar patterns in unconnected continents. By accessing this source of power, we may create a ritual or use certain crystals without consciously knowing their significance, only to find out that our invented spell closely resembles one from another time or culture; we know how to heal without being taught.

Gaining such knowledge has been described as ‘inner-plane’ teaching and if you can trust your own deep intuitions, you need very little formal teaching about magick. If you scry at the full moon or during one of the ancient festivals, by looking into water and letting images form, this deep wisdom will offer solutions to seemingly impossible dilemmas.

The practice of witchcraft demands great responsibility, for you are handling very potent material when you deal with magick. The benefit is that by focusing and directing your own inner powers and natural energies you can give form to your thoughts and needs and desires and bring them into actuality. The more positive and altruistic these focuses are, the more abundance, joy and harmony will be reflected in your own world.
