I’ve been an on and off magician for some time now. I bought some of EA’s courses and read lightly on his material. My first couple of attempts at evocation failed miserably. It was basically me sitting in a circle focusing intently on the sigil not getting anywhere. I decided to call it quits and give up.
Recently due to some circumstances I’ve decided to give it another go. I took my time reading E.A’s book Questing After Visions and realised I’ve done the whole thing incorrectly. I’ve completely ignored the section where he talks about brainwave states. I’m referring to the Theta brain wave states. So with my new knowledge I decided to meditate everyday for 30min. At first it felt strange and got no where but yesterday I had this freaky feeling of losing my balance and total awareness of my body to the point of blacking out. I also felt like I left my body for a minute there. I freaked out so I woke up in my body.
I’m not an expert at this so I would like to consult some of the senior mages for help and knowledge. From my currently understanding I’m assuming that I have to get my brain and physiology to the “theta” brain wave state, HOLD it there and trigger the “gamma” state and that is where I’ll be able to access the powers of evocation, divination and soul travel. Have I got this right? S
So for example in the case of evocation; you would have to keep your eyes open to meditate get your brainwaves to that state then contact the entities you’re trying to call. I mean I just managed to reach the state for a split second with my eyes closed. It would be near impossible for me to reach the state with my eyes open. Damn…I really envy the advanced users of magic. Thank you for reading my thread and feel free to comment or leave any advice. I will greatly appreciate any feedback, correction or advice.
