I’ve had my periods of doubt, knowing that deep down inside I don’t believe a word that the left hand side of my brain is trying to tell me but I can’t quite shake the thought of doubt. So I force myself to recall all of the times when really weird shit happened to me, things I can not explain thru scientific or otherwise mundane means. You know, the really strange occurances that leave you puzzled because you can’t find anything in your home or the atmosphere that would have caused it, no hallucination inducing drug use, no magnetic fields shifting around you, and so on.
I think about those occurances and remember, I ran thru every possible alternative cause for that and it simply cannot be explained. I also remember the times I thought a spell or evocation was unsuccessful because I didn’t feel a change in consciousness or some great sign letting me know hey this worked, but the results I desired still manifested. I reminds me that there is definitely something to this beyond what our minds can comprehend. Believing is seeing, not the other way around. You have to first believe before you can see.
That’s why so many people say here look, I did the Ouija board thing or the tarot card thing to prove you wrong and as I suspected nothing happened, so this magick stuff is bull. Well there’s the problem right there. That person did not engage in these magickal things to look for truth, they did it just to prove me wrong and doing something magickal with an attitude like that is not going to produce any results because if you go into it thinking this is BS and will not work, then it won’t work because you think it won’t. Again, I am lead to refer back to thoughts as being very powerful magickal weapons that can be used for our growth, education, and attainment of personal desires, or it can be used to destroy us and bring us down.
Similar concept. So remind yourself of the things that DID work, the strange things you DID see that you can’t explain, this will give you the drive to keep working towards your ascension, the desire to keep going until something else weird happens that makes you only want to keep going further to find out the source behind it all. If you constantly think maybe this was a dellusion, then you will only focus on the mundane and slowly retrain your brain, descending down the ladder of ascension and back to the mundane brainwashed world until your mind tricks you into becoming a slave again. Doubt is the quickest way to undo everything you have done thus far, the quickest way to lose your power.
Some would argue the opposite, that if you believe in something you cannot see so strongly that you will manifest a version of that belief within your mind and you will hallucinate that what you wish to see is there before you even though it’s just an illusion caused by desire. This may be true in some cases, but a well experienced magician will soon be able to tell the difference between what was real and what was an illusion by relying upon what their other senses are also telling them. Do not rely on your eyes alone to tell you how you should perceive the world.
Your eyes lie to you way more often than you’d care to find out. Since the eyes are the very center of what we use to see the world in which we live, as we grow up, our brain quickly learns that the eyes are the key to everything we perceive before us and so, the eyes must also be more important than the other 4 senses. Our brains then begin to favor the eyes, shutting off our other senses to a certain degree so the core of your energy can be used to maintain yoursight, to focus, to see things, to read, pointing out colors to you so can discern the difference between that tree and that stop sign ahead of you.
Humans have grown accustomed to this so much, that we don’t even realize our other senses are being deprived by our brain because our brain sees the eyes as the king, and our smell, taste, touch, and sound are just the meaningless pheasants that do the kings bidding. So you have to learn to tell your mind you don’t give a rats ass what it thinks, that you know what you saw was real because your sound made you hear a faint voice, your touch made you feel a light poking sensation in your neck, and you coud smell (insert random smell here) when the strange occurance happend, and so on.
I have been watching a great series on human psychology about the brain being the number one reason for our lack of instant spiritual attunement. And also why 3 people could experience the same event. One person doesn’t even remember that event occuring, and the other two spend a lifetime arguing over how it really happened because one has a memory of the car being blue while the other says yes it was blue but it was a truck not a car. The people who are more in tune with their spiritual senses will get the details more accurately because they have learned how to fully uses all of their senses at once, the ones who have no spiritual attunement are the ones who will remember stuff that didn’t even happen because they are relying only on what their eyes told them and not what their 5 senses as a whole told them, and the eyes well…
…It’s a proven fact that when we see something 20 seconds after seeing it our brain has already discarded about 73% of the actual details of that item or event, the details it deemed unimportant, the more time passes, the more we forget or we remember details that were untrue because our mind realizes we are trying to remember a detail it already discarded days ago so, your mind makes up a false detail to fill in the blanks. The only way to get your brain to see every detail as important so it will save all of the information it takes in and not just some of it, is to remember what you saw in the form of a story. This confuses your mind into believing the details are important and so, the event or details get stored in your long term memory section.
Try to do this with your magick from here on out and you will start to notice a big difference. The series I am watching is part of my educational training that a spirit pointed me to.
