I like what i read.
I myself, consider the “can i look into my own eyes” test to be the best tool,
for checking if i’m in allignement with my ethical Standards.
Which again, helps to make the ugly Monsters of Darkness,
to be less ugly and more helpful.
Also, Kybalion is a very good way to work such Things through.
Just Remember, you do These Things for yourself.
And -i have a hard time here too - Keep remininding yourself,
to sometimes just go outside, and do ANYTHING,
that brings you into new ideas, new situations,
just to give your life, and your mind that Little Infusion
of “well, didn’t notice that before”.
It kinda helps with the Manifestation side of it aswell.
You have to see the Options, to choose one of them.
Oh by the way, it reminds me of a technique i like to share.
We all tend to Focus ourselfes for Long periods of time into one type of perception.
And in western Systems that’s mostly Point-Focus.
Try to “broud your view” - activly choosing to look towards the outer Corners of your eyes.
It helps with de-focusing from many Things,
just see it a way of forgetting the small Picture, and seeing the bigger one instead.
you can also use this with magick,
when combined with breath.
except, there it goes a Little like:
Breathing in = Pulling energy from the inside, and letting go of the Point your Vision focused on.
Breathing out = Pushing the Energy through your Body, outwards, like a bubble into all directions.
I use These a lot, for area spells,
basicly when i evoke, i fill the area with energy that way, which then can be used by the deitys to join the space.
-however, that’s instant magick, done without a circle…
So adjust as you Need!
Keep up the good Work!
