Been hunkering down, going through a magickal woodshedding session, trying to figure out how to make my magick more efficient, practical & effective.
IIH Immersion: I’ve kinda taken a pause on progressing through IIH and really just take my time polishing the techs I feel most beneficial for me; like more understanding of the elements, or being able to connect to other beings. Recently, my clairvoyance skills has really gone up a level; in that half sleep state, I’m able to hear the thoughts of others that pertains to me – quite interesting experiences, I haven’t been able to replicate it at any event however.
Clients: One more client to go. The last one I was working with kinda ended abruptly and while I have mix feelings as to the desire, I did my best w/ the working I prepared for him. I even sacrificed a magickal tool of mine that I’ve been saving for years, for a special event, and used it for the clients ritual. While I am on the edge regarding the result, the scientist/magus in me wants to see results.
Misc: Been re-reading some old ChM texts, trying to re-inspire the “mad” scientist/mage inside of me. Somewhat working. The problem is time and energy. Work has been going at me and the mental fatigue it causes me tires me considerably, I don’t want to quit and probably wont but I have to find a solution to this.
[EDIT] Layout change, HUZZAH!!!!!
I’ve posted on this blog my work and accounts with this item, just go check out the “experiments” tab of this blog for my previous post (because I am that lazy to have to link them for you, take that)
This is pretty much the exact account on how I created my Jupiterian Cash Box with the help of the entities from NAP, a grimoire I’ve been working with for quite some time now. I thought I’d share this with you all, for study purposes or to create your own.
I’ve had a couple of wooden boxes that I bought from the dollar store, for the purpose of doing something magickal with them. I’ve always been fascinated w/ magickal boxes so I thought this project was a perfect fit for what I was trying to do.
On the physical box, I ended up painting it blue outside and yellow inside. I marked the outside w/ the symbol & seal of Jupiter, some words of power like the names of the entities I planned to contact, money sign as well and a pentagram symbol as well for good measure.
Inside the box, on the lid part of it, I painted the symbol & seal of Mercury and the words of power associated with this symbol as well. I also left some real money, coins, a magnet and a petition of what I want to happen inside as well.
I want to be in a financially excellent situation.
I want to be able to acquire anything I please.
I want to receive funds wherever possible.
I want to attract wealth and fortune from every avenue.
I want to be able to win any contest.
The main ritual part of this working was done through the entities of NAP, some planetary magick and the NAP Attracting and Banishing Rituals, since I thought this tech was being underused/valued and you never hear of its usage. The ritual is in 3 parts; calling in Arzel, then Mercury, then Jupiter.
Mind you, I’ve skipped certain things since I’m very familiar with this system but if you are a beginner, you might want to do everything by the book.
I call on thee, Mighty Arzel.
Bless this endeavor to success.
Gods of Mercury, hear my plea.
Bless this box with your grace.
I then used the NAP Mercury Attracting Ritual.
Gods of Jupiter, hear my plea
Bless this box with your almighty powers.
Oh Nitika, Genius Of Wealth.
Bless this box so money shall come to me, enough and to spare.
With these words, I beseech thee;
Oh Mighty Elubatel, this humble servant beseech thee.
Bless this box so that it may bring its possessor success.
I beseech thee with these words,
Oh Powerful Labezerin, I beseech thee.
Bless this box so that it may bring good fortunes to those want it.
Hear my plea,
I then used the NAP Jupiter Attracting Ritual to close off the ritual and seal the energies,
Then, for 7 days or so, I did some supplementary charging via NAP Attracting Ritual. I also ended up leaving a permanent spot for it in my altar.
Its’ main strength, I believe, is its’ flexibility. You can have it permanently charging certain desires you want accomplished or you can have it temporarily spread prosperity by charging certain things. I’d leave game cards, cash, petitions regarding prosperity in this box. You can leave your resume in there if you’re looking for a job (and if your box is big enough). You can take some dirt from your bank, etc. You can put a petition for your friend who needs help.
The sky is the limit with this little trinket.
Hope it brings you as much prosperity as it does to me and my family.
Spirit Training – Consciousness Transference:
In this exercise, the point is that a practitioner must be able to transfer their consciousness to another being/thing easily. Of course there are different levels of this practice, one of the highest is such a degree of control and power that one is able to override their target.
This is one of those kinds of steps which one can simply forget morals and ethics if they are quite gifted in this skill, Bardon warns that there is karmic repercussions for the practitioner who abuses this practice.
For the purpose of this exercise though, one can move on to the next step by achieving the minimum level – which is to be able to perceive the external environment through your target.
To me, if you’re naturally emphatic or could role play a character pretty well, if you are basically skilled at immersing yourself into something – these are good attributes that will help get through this part.
Soul Training – Elemental Initiation pt02:
In this section, Bardon explains a chakra/middle pillar type elemental exercise in which the practitioner absorbs a certain type of energy in a certain part of a body, and move on from there; from your lower body (Earth), stomach (Water), chest & throat (Air), the head (fire). Also, he reasons that once someone starts this practice – it’ll balance the practitioners elemental structure as a side effect of this technique.
Bardon explains his reasons behind the organization in a practical and logical way but personally, I’ve never really this order in other systems/traditions.
What I got out of this is do some sort of “energy” exercise everyday.
For me, do this daily for a year but move on after 6 months or when you are able to feel the effects of this tech.
Physical Training – Gesture Magick:
Here Bardon talks about the magick of gestures, he basically says that personalize your tech and keep it a secret.
What I got out of this is that create your own spells; not just through gestures but words, sounds, whatever – but keep it personalized and keep it a secret.
Start with one and make sure it works, then move on to the next, and the next one.
Recommended Training Regime:
- Elemental Initiation part 02 (2x)
- Consciousness Transference (whenever you have the chance)
- Meditation Upkeep
- B&W Soul Mirrors
- Gesture Magick Creation
I guess I’ve been in a state of stagnancy recently…..I mean I’ve gotten into a routine and since that routine has been working – well, you know what they say; if it aint broke, don’t fix it.
I’ve gotten to a pretty good intermediate level of magickal skillz, I’ve been managing to achieve things or gain stuff that I want through magick. I’ve been able to help people with it as well. I’ve learned so much again this time around and I’ve made important friends/associates in the community through this blog, the many online communities I frequent and even around my locale. I’ve been working through, and going strong through the magickal system I’m employing at the moment.
But this is what I do, how I am built – I work on something and I work on it till I own it, then I make it better so by the time I’m done with it, it’s as easy as pie for me. This is how I work through life, for the most part that is, and magick is not included in that process. I mean I will get to the point but somewhere inside me, there’s something that pushes me to go beyond the limit I’ve created and break it, and see what lays beyond.
I guess some people can call it “chaos”, and I’ll forgive them for it.
Is it the determination to strive for betterment? Maybe but I don’t really think so since there are some things I’m quite content not to get better at (lol, if you know what I mean).
I just really enjoy the whole world of magick and I want to know more, discover more, seek more adventures, etc.
Since I’ve written my post about having a “dull” sword yesterday, it really felt like I’ve exorcises a demon out of my head and now things are very clear, I want to do the things I’ve wanted to do before but seemed to have lost the motivation through the haze of it all.
Maybe it’s just the post-year long vacation hangover but I’ve taken my aspirin, drank my water, puked it out and slept it off.
I’ve been thinking recently that my elemental energy exercise has been a little stale lately, I haven’t been getting the response that I feel whenever I practice it, like I’ve plateaued (is that even possible, magickal wise?) - even the vital force exercise that I’ve just re-started recently has started to feel the same way.
Since I’ve been working w/ the planetary constructs more recently, and that I’ve always wanted to go more in depth  in regards to the elements/energies, I decided to add a little daily planetary energy exercise.
Basically, whatever planetary force corresponds w/ the day I am on, that’s the energy I will try to get to know on that day using minimalistic magickal techniques (planetary seal, energy accumulation). I’ve been doing this for months now w/ Jupiterian forces but I’ve decided to expand to the other planetary energies to balance and refine myself more.
And in the end, have better grasp of these forces.
1. The energy model/theory that I follow is that planetary, vital force, chi, elements, are all part of one power/force, just different shades that we, the practitioners, manage to discern and discover.
