Hi all. I wanted to ask you some tips or guidance…
Up until now my only magick has been following the Gallery of Magick and Power of Magick way, which tends to skim down the practice to focus on the physical results.
I don’t know how you people here feel about this way of doing magick, if you consider it too basic, but it’s given me great satisfaction so far.
I’d say what I want to gain here is mostly spiritual; I already feel confident in my ability to use magick to gain materialistic gains or to sway people into favorable situations (mostly with the Goetia, the Archangels and the spirits from “Lucifer and the Hidden Demons”).
But I yearn to have experiences similar to those I read in this forum, and what I’ve done before isn’t enough for me!
I made a list of areas I want to focus and improve, any help I can get will be much appreciated
I made it in the order of what I feel is more important for me, but that could always change I guess.
Astral senses / lucid dreaming
My visualization skills are not that terrible but for some reason it seems to be much better with my eyes open (like when I perform the Sword banishing from a book by Damon Brand), but when I close them and do a pathworking (usually to Raziel or a Goetia demon), it gets more difficult.
Fortunately, one week ago I had my first incomplete and blurry vision of Dantalion, and it brought great joy! Didn’t happen again though… I was doing this guided meditation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwFX0RHzSIY
Third eye / conversation with spirits.
I guess it kind of overlaps with 1)… here in this forum I read that Azazel and Uphin are more than capable of helping me achieve those results, but I was hoping someone could point out some detailed resources on how to contact them, or how I can tell if I’m ready to do so.
I’m a student in a medical field, and I would love to have guidance from some spirits or deities associated with knowledge. Perhaps even possession for when I have to work, to maximize my learning.
Out of body
Would be a dream come true! I just purchased a book by John Kreiter, I’ll see how it goes.
P.S.: could also be used to imagine sex in a satisfactory way, right? Perhaps kinds of sex that are usually frowned upon or that my partner is not comfortable with?
I guess most of my desires stem from curiosity. Curiosity to see things, to learn. Much like 3), I can’t even begin to imagine how much knowing all my past experiences could give me wisdom today.
Working with deities
I’m a fairly nerdy guy in the mythology field I taught myself ancient greek and I’m currently learning hebrew (via duolingo though, for now), and the prospect of contacting greek of norse gods is so exciting…
My first experience with tarot was with Jodorowsky’s book and deck. This author only talks about tarot as a psychological tool, and maybe for this reason I don’t really feel attracted to it as a divination tool.
I got a book about runes though, they do fascinate me.
I’ve almost no idea what that even means, please help
Is it possible to draw energy from a person to make them weaker, as in a form of attack?
That would be my main goal, and I’d love to learn how to.
I read about Lilith and meditation on the Kelipot tree, but I guess I would have to meditate on the kabbalistic tree first?
I am pretty healthy, but just like anyone I have my issues (mainly scoliosis, which gives me lower back pain). I assume working on the physical is the most advanced magick, right?
That’s why it’s the last on the list.
