For me, it’s simply lighting two candles in front of me, sitting down, and doing a visualization of embodiment of light.
If you don’t know this one, it’s quite easy, I believe EA outlined it in the newsletters a while back, but it’s found in quite a few magick books.
Simply visualize a ball of blue ethereal energy above your head(or below your feet, if you should prefer to start from the ground up), feel it permeating your head, the light surrounding your skin, radiating into your pours, until your entire skull is a glowing beacon of energy & light.
Take very deep breaths, letting the light overcome you, it’s brilliance calming, soothing…this being the very energy of the edges of the Universe itself.
Repeating this process, next bring the light down to your torso, slowly visualizing the energy filling your body, with your body accepting, and ultimately becoming the source of the light itself…now, again breath deeply, a few times, letting the light become one with you, expanding throughout your veins.
Next, expand this soothing, calming light your arms, your plexus, your thighs, your calves, your feet, etc.
Be sure to remember to take deep breaths between each expansion, allowing the light the chance to merge with every cell in your body, until you can sense no difference between your physical self, and the energy that now flows within you.
Perform this relaxation rite thoroughly, slowly, always feeling the light as it moves to the next extremity of your body, and you will feel it’s calming energy overcome you.
Now that you have reached a state of calm; filled with the source of the Godhead itself; it’s calming light, it’s ethereal eternity flowing throughout your pours, breath deeply, and return your attention to whatever ritual you are about to perform…if none, simply allow the light to stay with you, or perhaps, fill it with an intention, and expel it from your body with equally deep breaths, now charged to perform your will. (Simply magick).
Afterwards, perform chants, do sigil gazing, or whatever works for you to help fall into the sync, getting deeper into trance.
I’ll be honest, you will reach a point in your practice where you can easily fall into trance, wherever, whenever, as long as you practice this sort of relaxation right or ritual ‘throughout’ the day, and I mean everyday.
You should get to a point of being as comfortable as Qui Gon Jinn, ready to fight Darth Maul, yet sitting down to meditate during the battle. (I know…corny, but this is how it is…life is stressful, but find 5 minutes every few hours, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve).
