I wanted to open up the discussion of “Psychic Tears” in relation to Magick, and their sort of connotations that they have.
Tears are mostly water and salt. According to Azazel, water is one of the Gateways to the spirit world, and in particular is representative of the abyss. Symbolically, there are many connotations to water being related to personal emotion. I find that salt can be used to nullify/“ground” or conduct particular energy currents depending on the intent of its user. Combining these two aspects together implies that our tears constitute of a physical manifestation of our emotions from our personal psyche.
When they happen to be shed in a ritual, the naturally flowing tears can amplify the power of the intent that manifest. I have found that items can be concentrated with tears, and personal emotions can be placed into any sort of fetish to amplify its power.
In a general social sense, the physical act of crying seems to activate all types of social connotation, but it’s purely subjective to each interaction. For me it just appears to be a generally understood indication of extreme emotion. What puzzles me the most is that humans are the only animals that can cry. That for some reason we as humans physically expel water and salt, two vital “ingredients” to our physical survival, just for the sake of indicating how we feel.
My general question to you all is; why have we evolved the ability to cry emotional, “Psychic” tears? and what ways can we as Magicians use them for?
