Hey there all you amazing and magickal people…I would like to share one of my evening rituals with you.
I perform a qigong ritual (Standing on Stake) which I use to create energy to help sustain my life force, balance my mind and help open up my mind amongst othere things. I perform a light warm up to get the blood circulating and my limbs loose and warm. Before I stand in the “Standing on Stake” posture I ask Lucifer to bond with my energy. I stand in front of a mirtor with my eyes open and begin the qigong ritual using abdominal breathing.
This is how to perform abdominal breathing:
This is done by resting the tongue on the upper palate, behind the teeth to first create a connection with the yin and yang energies. It also stops you ftom getting dehydrated as it activates you saliva glands to kerp your mouth moist.
You breathe in and out through your nose. As you breathe in push your abdomen out and when you breathe out pull in your abdomen.
Gaze at the mirror (like you would gaze at a sigil) at your reflection and you should see your aura grow or even vibrate and you might catch the spirit you have asked to join you in your ritual, it’s aura melding with yours. Perform the standing posture for as long as it feels comfortable for you. Close the posture by breathing in as you raise your hands to your side and then up above your head then push your palms down towards your abdomen. Do this for 3 repeitions. This helps stores the energy you have created temporarily.
When you perform the seated meditation always perform it at a time and a half ratio to the standing posture. Close the seated meditation in the way as the standing posture. Closing the seated meditation helps you to store the energy you have created permenantly.
Then stand and rub your palms vigourously until they are very warm. Then rub down your face, back of your head, front of your body and where you can reach on your back, inside and outside of legs. Rub 3 times on each section of of your body. )This will help close the meridians and pressure points that become open during the ritual) Next pat down the above body parts also 3 times (This helps disperse any chi that may still be present to prevent it from stagnating).
I do this everyday and you can perform with the diety you are working with and ask them if they would like to join you. I find this another great way of bonding with them.
Let me know what your experiences are from doing this as it would be great to discuss.
