Who wants some secrets?! Over the next several weeks, I’ll be posting lessons in advanced magic dealing particularly with thought-forms and what I am calling Tulpas. Among other things, you will be learning–
-how to train your astral body to do anything
-how to use thought-forms to manipulate your physical and mental state
-how to create powerful servitors, familliars, god-vehicles and Tulpas of your own design
-how to create entities with powers you desire and then manifest those powers though yourself/install them in your own astral body
-how to manifest a tulpa through your own body, overwriting your own personality and characteristics with a character of your own construction
-I MIGHT teach you how to manifest a tulpa through another person. That’s one of the scariest operations you can perform, though. If nothing else, I will at least point you to a book that will give you the gist of how to do it if you do a little figuring on your own.
Basically, I’m going to be teaching you how to create conscious entities out of your own astral body and work with them for magical purposes. The techniques I will be teaching you are well-known but rarely openly taught. This techniques will enhance every kind of magic you do.
I’ll be starting out with the foundation techniques you need to learn before you can start building powerful thought-forms.
Let me know how you guys get on with these techniques and chime in with your experiences, questions, advice.
First the Warnings…
- These techniques work. Quickly and dramatically. A lot of people are more comfortable when the magic they do has an element of ambiguity. You might get scared.
- Physical manifestations are common with this work. You may see things, you may hear things. There might be poltergeist phenomena.
- Because the thought-forms you are creating will be intimately linked with your own energy body, it is highly inadvisable to use these techniques for baneful workings.
Teaching your Astral Body
While your willpower is the director, virtually all magic is performed by your astral body. It’s important to understand that you can teach your astral body how to do anything by simply learning to communicate with it. All you have to do is “show” it what you want it to do and then command/will it to do it. Everything we’re going to learn comes down to training your astral body to perform certain tasks. This comes down to imagining what you want it to do–visual imagination and also imagining the feeling of do it. Then you command/will it to do it. By practicing over and over, your astral body learns how to perform the task. This is the basic concept behind everything we’re going to learn, and this idea of “showing your astral body what to do and what it feels like” will come up again.
The Foundation Technique: Self-Possesssion
The goal of this exercise is to cause your physical body to be fully possessed by your astral body. After you achieve this, you saturate your astral body with as much energy as possible. I often call this technique Magic 101 - it’s a fundamental exercise that will boost literally every kind of magic you do. It helps to have done some kind of energy work before. If you haven’t, learn some basic energy breathing exercises.
I recommend you do this exercise 1-3 times a day until you can do it in a matter of seconds. After that, you should do it before basically any magical “thing” you decide to do - divination, evocation, spellwork, whatever. This exercise is adapted from a book called Psychastra by Frank Rudolph Young. It may be helpful to read his version and look at his illustrations if you have a difficult time imagining/understanding the exercise.
Lay on your back. Imagine your astral body floating above you. See it as a cloud of light that is floating above you. Imagine a tube that is coming down from your astral body into your naval chakra. Now become aware of a stopper or valve in your naval. This valve is currently closed. It opens inward and allows your astral body to enter into your physical body. Take a deep inward breath from your naval. Imagine the valve opening and WILL it to open. Imagine and will a feeling of suction - imagine and feel the cloud of light being forced down through the tube, through the valve and into your physical body. Keep breathing in and pulling your astral body more and more in through your naval. See the cloud of light being pulled into your body and filling it up completely. You will notice a feeling of strain and a feeling like your astral body wants to jump or rush back out of your body. You may feel it “fighting” you. This is normal. Keep breathing in and willing it to flow down into your physical body until you feel that you are completely saturated by it.
Once you feel that your physical body is saturated by this billowing cloud of light, imagine the cloud filling up your body so that it conforms to the contours and shape of your body. Imagine the outer layer of this cloud developing a skin that pulls it into the shape of your body and locks it down into your physical body. Your astral body may still be fighting you and you may have a feeling that it wants to jump back out, but will it to lock itself in and submit to you. When you feel it submit, feel and see your entire body glowing with this light and imagine that the full power and capacities of your astral body are now locked into your physical body and fully at the disposal of your conscious mind.
The more you repeat this exercise, the faster your astral body will learn what you want and how to do it. At first, you may take 15-30 minutes to to achieve this self-possession. After a week or two or regular repetition you will find your astral body complies in under five minutes or even in a matter of seconds.
Saturating your Astral Body with Raw Energy
Once you have the hang of possessing your physical body with your astral body, the next thing is to practice saturating your astral body with as much raw energy as you can get while you are possessed by it. Any basic energy raising technique will be good fcor this. Imagine your astral body being flooded with raw cosmic energy. Keep breathing that energy in until you feel that you are saturated like a sponge. Know that all this energy is at the disposal of your physical body and conscious mind.
It is when your astral body is saturated with energy that you direct it to perform tasks. For example, if you are learning divination you can imagine your astral body reaching out and finding the information you’re looking for, grabbing it, pulling it to your mind and translating it to something you can understand. You imagine what this looks and feels like, then engage in your divination. Again, the more you repeat these “demonstrations” the faster your astral body will learn and the better it will get at the task.
Next will be learning how to shoot your saturated astral body into a specific location, which is a big part of manufacturing talismans. Then we’ll move into elementary thought-form work.
