Guise, you could try and see where this particular technique leads you to:
Altering the past via spells in the present.
It is something I found out when I was inspired by a videogame, and through intense visualization you too can achieve it. I have also written in this "report"two situations where it has helped me combat illness and injury, and what is aging but facets of those two evils?
Here it goes:
Do you remember the Mortal Kombat videogame? If you do not, doesn’t matter. What’s important is that a certain character in the series used to do a particular movement that triggered in me this awareness.
You see, the screen where you fight your virtual opponents is limited. Your character always faces in a certain direction and walks either forwards to his opponent, or backwards whilst maintaining visual contact with him. And if for some reason you go back too far, you are stuck by an invisible barrier on which your enemy might pin and brutalize your character. The exception is a character named Scorpion. He has a special move where he turns towards this impenetrable frontier, leaps to it, and appears behind their enemy to lay the smack down.
THAT thing made me aware of the similarity between it and our impossibility of accessing the past, that perhaps a spell should “jump” like the character does into whichever place the caster would send it.
That is why whenever I do this technique I pretend/visualize that the left side of whatever I am looking at is the warping barrier, that if I push a spell beyond it, it will cause changes.
I start by the usual visualization of holding an energy, shaping it and programming it. Then I remain still so that my visual field remains static (with eyes closed or open, does not matter if you are visualizing), and I move that thoughtform towards the left until it disappears from sight.
Then, which is the most important part for me, I say “But I did it back then already”, as if I were answering to someone asking me about it, like I am having a conversation with someone who does not know what I did or not, and that my verbal confirmation of it causes it to change.
Sometimes I make the thoughtform vanish with an audible sound knowing I sent it back then into the “ordered” line that is my past chain of events.
Now, this is how has helped me so far:
- Situations where I’ve been assaulted by a spirit and I am caught off guard, too terrified or overwhelmed to react:
Several times I’ve been under the influence of a summoned spirit where you are coaxed into not focusing in your thoughts. The spirit causes a change with its presence where you find yourself drifting similarly to when you are so tired that sleep catches you. You struggle to retain a thought, and before you know it you’re being swept away.
What usually happens is intense daydreaming and mild form of either possession or obssesssion, but I won’t have any of it. So, when I just think that trying to visualize back or even say out loud some sort of exorcism will only worsen the situation, I do that technique because it happens (in my mindset) in a sort of “borrowed time” that flows apart from the current situation.
I just smile saying “but I had already come prepared”, so usually whatever that spirit was doing finds itself broken because this technique alters the continuity of time in the sense that it is forced to respect whatever barrier suddenly arises between me and it, because “it was there before all along”.
Same situation but with illnesses. I do the usual golden-hued energy projection whenever I am becoming sick. I’ve reached the point where even some symptoms will stop for a few minutes such as nasal congestion or toothaches during an intense flu.
But sometimes it cannot be helped when the illness is too advanced, so whenever I muster the strenght, I project that golden energy and say “but it was always there before the illness came”, thinking that if it were so, and if we can pretend that the illness is purely an energetic disturbance besides the biological causes, then that energy would have to deal with the one I projected with.
This used to cause a greater change of symptoms and I’ve gotten out of bouts of flu sooner than the usual 10 days. We had one some time ago, and most of my family members (and friends who caught it later) required at 10 days with antibiotics. I on the other hand got out at 5 days, with the help of antibiotics that is, because I am nowhere near being able to do that on willpower and magick alone.
All in all would be an indicator that this technique is helpful, but I’ve got another documented case, but requires its own heading.
- Healing a fucked up tendon:
About a year ago, around november 2014, my dad got into an argument with some asshat who was refusing to pay something he broke in our shop. The guy run off into the street by tackling my father aside, and my father grabbed him not out of anger, but necessity since he has a bad knee which went under surgery. He is missing a cartilage in that knee so he must keep his legs muscled lest it bends the wrong way and breaks.
Seeing that, I realized that I should stop the runner before my father fell off him (the guy was 7 feet, my dad is 5’7 or 5’8) and things got worse, so I ran after the guy, grabbed him and my dad, lifted both them off the ground and slammed the guy on a bench.
I did it in an obvious state of anger because otherwise I doubt I would have managed that feat in the cold, not only because of the strength needed, but because otherwise my own knees would not have withstood the effort.
You see, I am 396 pounds at 6 feet of height, my dad was and still is 220 pounds, and that guy was very skinny but at 7 feet of height we can theorize that his overall weight (skin, bones, and assuming he had all his organs?) was around 198 pounds. That is a whooping 814 pounds of sudden pressure on my knees. Needless to say, I fucked up a tendon behind my upper thigh that did not allow me to walk fast without wracking pain and tears. Really, I could not even sit down and extend that leg without crying.
So, I began doing that spell. Began visualizing a spring and complex mechanisms akin to cyborg implants that I would make “pop” out of existence into the past saying the same phrase: “but I had this spell going when I did that effort”.
Afterwards I’d see my leg having these implants for a few seconds but quickly breaking because of the effort sustained, so I kept repeating the spell convincing myself that before the confrontation I had like ten times the same spell on me, active.
Now? Now I am fine. I can run, I can break down doors with a kick like before (don’t ask me, I just do it, sometimes for fun, sometimes because I am like that), I am back to lifting heavy things… Like it never happened.
Or should I say, like I had a lot of active spells back then.
So well, that’s all Tell me if you find it useful.
