Clairvoyance

Release Your Inner Clairvoyant

Everyone has the ability of clairvoyance, which means ‘clear seeing’, this is viewing with your psychic eye, this enables you to see into the past, the present or the future. You are perceiving energies that are not tangible, and by opening your third eye you are able to embrace a different type of vision. Through clairvoyance you will have the opportunity to perceive things before they happen and will be able to tap into the astral plane, through clairvoyance you can receive information from your spirit guides.

We are all born clairvoyant, although some are able to naturally use this ability, others need to work on it. Most people involved in companies and businesses, especially the stock exchange, will often say they acted on gut instinct, or it felt right to take a certain step. There is no logic associated with these feelings, it is just an inner knowing, without realising it you actually use your psychic ability often in your life. Think of how many times you have said, or done something that felt right, you were actual listening to your psyche and acting upon it.

Have you ever watched babies giggling at something that adults can’t see, they are clear seeing, babies are also able to see people’s auras. Mothers are psychic where their children are concerned and seem to have an uncanny instinct as to what their children are doing, or know instinctively if they are in trouble.

There are various types of psychic energies, and each person is different in the way they tune in, there are different ways you can receive information, it all depends on where your psychic strengths lie. For some it is quite natural to sense the presence of a ghost, or receive information from a long lost relative. A medium has the ability to relay information from a departed soul and often they are able to describe the person they are receiving the information from, they are hearing words and this is called clairaudience. Some are able to tune into ghosts by sensing their presence, this is called clairsentience, they are often able to reveal detailed information about the spirit.

When you are beginning you will likely find that you are clairvoyant, you will see images in your mind’s eye, and get a sense of what you are seeing, it is much the same as having a feeling that someone is going to phone you and then they do, or an image of someone falling down pops into your head, and it happens. There are probably many times in your life when you knew something was going to happen and you put it down to coincidence, you were actually tapping your psychic ability. Another way of triggering your psychic ability is to use tools such as tarot cards, the imagery of the cards can help inspire and stimulate your abilities. Runes can also help you to open up clairvoyantly and can be used as a catalyst in opening up your psychic channels.

There are no defined rules to learning how to develop psychically, but by using clairvoyance in your day to day life, you will find decision making easier, and be less likely to make mistakes. It will help you in making wise decisions handling finances, or in choosing the people to spend time with.

Those whose psychic ability occurs spontaneously are often fearful of what they see and feel. And it often takes some getting used to. They may have vivid images in their mind’s eye of something that is going to take place, and it happens, this can be quite unnerving to the uninitiated. They might hear noises in the night, or sense a presence and not know what is happening, this is their clairvoyant abilities surfacing, and it is necessary to learn how to channel the psychic energy so that it doesn’t overwhelm them. Some people have dreams that are precognitive, others have images, others hear, and some sense that it is important that they do, or not do, a certain thing. However the information is received it is all the same, it is the channeling of energy, and everyone has a different way of accessing and using the messages they receive.

Anyone can develop their psychic abilities and use them to enhance their life, there is nothing to fear and it can be a wondrous journey, approach with a sense of humour and with a joyous spirit. If you are keen to learn about clairvoyance, the chances are that you have had some experiences that you had no answers to, either as a child or as an adult. It takes an empathetic person to actually work in the field, as you are often dealing with very sensitive people, but if this path appeals, work on your abilities and decide exactly how you want to proceed. For instance as you progress you may want to use the tarot cards, or do numerology, or astrology. There are many ways that psychic ability can be used and it all depends on what type of journey you are on, and what inspires you.

When you begin your psychic journey it is a good idea to keep a journal, this can be part of your book of shadows. I believe to enhance your abilities you can’t go past beginning with psychometry, this is where you hold an item, such as a watch, ring, pair of glasses, bunch of keys, or piece of jewellery, belonging to someone else, and you sit very still holding the item and concentrating on only that. Breathe deeply and allow the item to reveal images and messages to you, or it could be that you have a strong feeling about something, or you feel cold, hot, or tired, grumpy, happy, elated, nervous. Whatever you see, hear, feel, sense, reveal this to the person the item belongs to, however silly you think it is, just say it, something that doesn’t make sense to you, will likely make sense to someone else. After you have tried this several times you will have an idea of how you are receiving the information, you may get images of actual events that are to take place, or be told of what is going to happen. You may sense certain things, you may receive images that are symbolic, you will not know exactly what it is you are seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, until you have tried psychometry on several occasions.

I began by going to a meditation class for the first time, after the group of eight had meditated, we were asked to exchange jewellery, watches, or rings, with the person to our left. I was handed a ring by a lady, as I sat holding it I received an image of a white fluffy kitten and a man handing it to the lady, she assured me she didn’t have any animals, nor did she care to have any. We carried on with the reading and I saw other images which I revealed to her. I thought no more about this until the following week, when a very exuberant lady almost bowled me over with her effusive hug, she told me that two days after the class, which happened to be her birthday, an old friend turned up and gave her the most adorable kitten, it was love at first sight. Items hold a history of the person they belong to, and can give information about a person’s past, present or future. Energies of what has taken place, or is about to take place in the person’s life is held within an object. A record is kept of what they have done, are doing, or are going to do.

Some people progress faster than others, and of all the things you can do to develop psychically, you will find that meditation, followed by psychometry is the most effective way to begin. It helps you to open up to the energies that are flying around all the time, it is like being quiet so that you can hear someone whisper something to you. By meditating, relaxing your active mind, and becoming still, you are able to perceive things that you would not, when your mind is very active.

Next time you go to the art gallery, look at the painting and see if you can get a sense of the artist who did the painting, if they have painted a portrait, try to tune into the subject and see what comes to mind. Everything carries an energy, a door handle that many people have touched, a sugar bowl, a spoon, salt and pepper shakers, a chair that someone sits in regularly. Even a car’s steering wheel, whatever people touch, carries a vibration, an energy that is you become aware, you can tune into quite naturally. The next time you speak with someone, see if you can go beyond what they are saying, and sense what they are feeling.

From psychometry you can try reading people, first try this with friends, you could even have a regular meditation class and work with others who are interested in metaphysical matters, you read people without holding anything. You look past them as though you are looking at their aura, and you will find, as reveal to them what is coming to you, when doing this approach with an open mind and don’t take yourself too seriously, you can have fun as you learn. After you have practiced reading your friends, you can try reading people when you are out in public, maybe when you are next sitting having a cup of coffee in a shop, or sitting on a train, or in a taxi, eating out, or just walking along. Energy is bouncing around you all the time, and if you tune in, you will find that you can receive all sorts of information just be being more alert. In a way it is like trying to find a radio channel, you keep turning the switch until you find the right frequency, which them allows you to hear the music clearly. What you are trying to do is to find your particular frequency, once you do this you will learn how to turn it on and off, and will be able to open yourself up when you choose, and close yourself off when you choose.

I would suggest that when you begin your psychic work, you designate an area within your home where you will be working, you can practice your psychic enhancement, and meditate here as well, it can be a room in your home, or an area where you can work comfortably. For your workspace you will require a table, it need not be elaborate, place a cloth of your choice over the table, (which is your altar) velvet is a nice choice, especially black or purple. Two candles in candle holders, at either end of the table, also have some incense that you can light each time you work. You will need four coloured candles, representing the four elements, green represents north and the element earth, the red candles represents south and the element fire, blue represents west and the element water, the yellow candles represents east and the element air. Place these candles north, south, east and west, on your table and light them each time you work. Have an oil essence burner and something that is alive, such as flowers or a plant. Choose a set of tarot cards that you like and have a set of rune stones, place crystals of your choice on your altar and place your tarot cards and rune stones to the left of your altar, next to the candle. Keep your essential oils in a container on your altar, begin with rose, jasmine, gardenia and lavender and add to these dependent on your taste, do the same with your incense, choose the fragrances that appeal to you. Place a crystal ball, with stand, in the center of your altar. Use a smudge stick before you begin any psychic work then light your incense, candles and oil essence.

Your first step before you begin any psychic work, is to open your chakras, these are your inner energy centers. Begin by sitting comfortably, breathe in deeply and exhale fully, keep doing this until you feel totally relaxed, then visualise the colour red which is at the base of your spine, this is your base chakra the beginning of your energy flow, visualise a vibrant red glow, you may notice a warm tingling sensation, see this light moving up your spine to the next chakra which is orange, this is your sacral chakra. See the red light merge into the orange light and continue moving up, next you have the colour yellow which is your solar plexus chakra; envisage the orange chakra merging with the yellow chakra. Visualise the yellow chakra merge with the heart chakra, which is green, visualise the green light merging with the blue, of your throat chakra, this merges with the third eye chakra, which is purple. The final chakra is the crown chakra and this is violet, envisage the purple third eye chakra merging with the violet crown chakra. Imagine light bursting from the top of your head and pouring out to the universe. As this takes place you should feel a wonderful sense of peace and be completely at ease and ready to meditate, before beginning your psychic work.

The base chakra is the four petal lotus located at the base of the spine, the body/mind connection is the building of cells, blood, nails, bones and teeth and the element earth, this chakra relates to your will to live and your connection to the earth. The sacral chakra is the six petal lotus and the mind/body connection is the lymph glands, bladder, reproductive organs and the kidneys, this chakra opens you to the flow of energy between you and your partner. The solar plexus chakra is the ten petal lotus and the mind/body connection is to the nervous system, stomach, digestion and instincts, it helps you to balance the material and spiritual world. The heart chakra is the twelve petal lotus and affects the skin, thymus, circulation, heart and chest, it promotes your ability to give and receive love. The throat chakra is the sixteen petal lotus and the mind/body connection, is self-expression, neck and voice and is known as the chakra of communication. The third eye chakra is the ninety six petal lotus and the body/mind connection affects the pituitary gland, face, ears and eyes, this chakra affects your intuition and psychic ability and helps you move beyond the conscious energy. The crown chakra is the thousand petal lotus and the mind/body connection creates a bond with the universal energies, it is the chakra of awakening and enlightenment.

When you finish your psychic work sit quietly and visualise closing yourself off, you do this by sitting and visualising the crown chakra closing, next the third eye chakra, followed by the throat chakra, next the heart chakra, then the solar plexus chakra, followed by the sacral chakra, and finally the base chakra, next take three deep breaths.

The next thing for you to try is remote viewing, when you lose something, such as your keys, wallet or purse, instead of moving around your home looking for the item, sit quietly meditate for a few minutes then visualise all the places you were thinking of looking and you will find that more often than not by doing this you will very likely find the item. Because as you look with your mind’s eye you may get an image of the place where the item is. Remote viewing works more often than not when you are searching for something.

Before you begin any psychic work light a smudge stick and incense and swirl the smudge stick in a clockwise motion in the area you will be meditating, and working in, hold the smudge stick and swirl it over your altar, you are creating a protective area in which to practice.

Another way you can become more attuned psychically is to keep a dream diary next to your bed, and as soon as you wake in the morning write down everything you remember about your dreams, and how you felt in your dreams. The more you do this the more in touch you become with energies beyond the five senses.

Practice your clairvoyant skills on a daily basis if you are able, pick up items and read the energies emanating from them, the more you do this the easier it will become for you to pick up psychic messages.

Clairsentience and Clairvoyance

Clairsentience, is you tuning into universal energies, this is when you touch something and have a feeling, such as going an antique shop and picking up an item that sends a shiver up your spine, or touching an old book and feeling emotional, this can also happen when you go to a museum. What you feel or sense, is your psyche giving you a direct message.

Clairvoyance and Psychometry

With psychometry the energy is trapped within an object and you are able to tune into the energies contained within, such as thoughts, feelings, emotions, ideas of those who have handled the object. This can be a very revealing activity and is something that anyone can learn to do. Information can be gathered from an item that belongs to someone on the earth plane, and from someone who is deceased.

Clairvoyance and Psychokinesis

This is where you can hold a crystal on a chain and with your mind move the object from left to right, from side to side, or in circles, the object is responding to the promptings of the unconscious mind. This helps you to strengthen and enhance your psychic abilities.

Auras

As you practice you will find that you begin to see auras, some are very bright and vivid, others are dull, and some are barley there, much depends on the energy of the person you are reading. Everyone has a continual energy field and when you are well, happy and in sync with your life, it will be bright and glowing. If you are feeling down and out of sorts it will be dull and heavy, the more you work with psychic energies the easier it will be to see the auras of others. A person’s aura can reveal if they are stressed, tired, lacking confidence. An aura can be seen around the person, or can be seen with the mind’s eye, it all depends on how you personally develop psychically. The aura can reflect the mood and personality of a person, the most visible aura is around the head and when you begin is likely to be seen as a white glowing light. People’s aura changes constantly and the aura reveals the mood of a person, different colours can represent different moods. A red aura is to do with passion, movement, change and sometimes, anger, lust or stubbornness. Orange relates to abundance, creativity, fertility, independence, joy, confidence, eccentricity, low self-esteem unsociability, each colour in the aura spectrum has a positive and negative connotation, it depends on the mood of the person being read for. A yellow aura relates to expertise, adaptability, logic, financial ability, or jealousy and emotional distance. Green relates to a lover of beauty, fidelity, healing, travel, empathy, or possessiveness, sentimentality, dependency on others. A blue aura relates to harmony, powerful leadership skills, justice and knowledge, emotional balance or over-reaction, pedantic, rules and regulations, can oscillate with decision making. A purple aura relates to spiritual powers, imagination, psychic abilities, a visionary or unrealistic, someone who lives in a fantasy world. A pink aura relates to the quintessential peacemaker, a healer, teacher, nurturer, or someone who has undefined principals, over-anxiety, and a martyr. A brown aura is revealing, security, a trustworthy person, a good financial manager, a stable person, or someone who is materialistic, or someone who is overwhelmed by life. A grey aura represents someone who is tactful, adaptable, likes to remain under the radar, someone who is flexible, or secretive, inability to commit. By being aware of the meaning of the aura colours, when you are doing a reading you will be able to sense whether there is a positive or negative energy.

Past Lives

As you are learning to expand your clairvoyant abilities you may also believe in, and be interested in tapping into past lives. Past lives can help you to better understand the life you are now leading, past-life work can help people who have destructive or unworkable, habits or behaviors in this lifetime. Even a relationship you are currently in may be associated with a past life.

It is thought that we have many lifetimes, and are associated with the same people over and over, in a variety of ways. You may have an overwhelming connection with someone and feel you have known them before, the connection is instinctive, this could be mother, father, brother, partner, child, friend. You can often identify those that you have this type of connection with. Or it can work in the opposite way and you find people that you take an intense dislike to and you don’t know why, past-life work can reveal why this is so. There may be places in the world that you are drawn to and you don’t know why, you may be drawn to a church, or particular area, or country. It may be that there are certain times in history that you have an emotional response to, or an aversion. There may be places that leave you feeling sad, or places that make you feeling unquestioningly happy. You can use a crystal ball to help you to tap into past lives, as a crystal ball transmits clairvoyant energies.

Try sitting in your meditation space with your crystal ball, first meditate then sit and stare into the crystal ball, allow your mind to wonder, keep gazing into the crystal ball and see what appears in front of you, it may be that you see a person or place, or a historic time may come to mind. When using the crystal ball it is for focus, when you see something it will be in your mind’s eye. You will find with practice that you will be able to piece together people and places, and a story will begin to unfold. Try using different essences and incense as your sense of smell can trigger past life memories, fragrance can act as a channel through time and can help you to connect. Try using hyacinth, frankincense, lotus, lilac, jasmine, rose, honeysuckle, mint, cinnamon, lavender, mimosa, sandalwood, juniper and cedar.

Light a candle before you begin and use any of the essences in an oil burner, you may also mix fragrances, and see which you respond to. So after you have smudged your area, lit your candles and incense, meditated, you are then ready to focus on your crystal ball. Count backwards to twenty, let the smell of the essences permeate your senses, focus on the crystal ball with the intention of tapping your past lives and receiving information to help you in this time.

Some people believe that we travel through different lifetimes with a family of souls who follow us through each lifetime and play different roles. You can right thing down as they come to you, also you may wish to try this with a friend and each look into the others past life, the same as if you are doing a psychic reading with an item, or using tarot cards or runes.

Another way of tapping your past lives, is to visualise a silver cord in front of you, it stretches from the left to the right, the left is past, this right is the future, you imagine travelling along your past timeline to before you were born and tap the previous lives, you may have images or feelings, the essence you are burning may be triggering heightened senses. You may also tap into your future and your future lives, you visualise yourself travelling along to the end of this life and beyond and see what comes to mind and what you feel. You can also ask the question “what was I doing one hundred years ago”, or “what will I be doing a hundred years from now. Have a pen and paper ready, or have a friend who will write down what you are seeing and feeling, this can be a very liberating experience, and can make sense of things you can’t make sense of.

Clairvoyance and Ghosts

The more you work on your clairvoyant skills, the more likely you are to see ghosts and be able to receive messages, words may pop into your head, or ideas come to mind, there are all different types of ghost, some are restless, some lost, some quite content to live in the home they were happy in. Only by allowing your clairvoyant skills to develop will you be able to see what type of psychic you are and how you receive your information. It may be that you have natural skills as a medium, and the spirit world is your forte, you will only know where your strengths lie, through practice. It could be that you will be a messenger for people’s long lost relatives, and you may receive information to pass on.

Begin by preparing your sacred space, cleansing it with a smudge stick and with incense, and meditating from there you can start your psychic journey, if you decide you wish to embark on this journey with interested friends, or interested acquaintances, try to meet regularly to meditate, and practice your psychometry, your people reading skills, your aura reading, and your journey into your past and future lives. You can progress in any way that you feel most comfortable, and allow yourself to be flexible, begin and progress with love and light.

Ritual Magic

Rituals can be very quick and simple or elaborate and ceremonial, magical ritual however does stand apart from other rituals.

Magical rites are unique and before performing them it is necessary to have an intention, this is a clear idea, vision, image of what is to be attained from the magical rite about to be undertaken. When magic is practiced we are embarking on a journey into the unknown, as we travel through different dimensions. The more people embarking on this journey, the more information there will be to share leading to spiritual evolution, as human consciousness journeys into new realms that offer insight and wisdom.

When practicing magic rituals there is a connection with a different type of consciousness that is beyond mortal, from this inter-dimensional contact comes the opportunity for enlightened thoughts and actions. Although as the levels of communication are so different with the different spheres of consciousness, often the information received is in a symbolic manner.

There is a soul consciousness linking every single human being, no matter how divergent we may be from each other, one energy impacts another, especially so with those who are awakened and dare to delve beyond human consciousness. The mortals who are open and have the ability to commune with different realms, are not only individually affected by divine energies, they have an affect on their family, friends and loved ones. The flow on from this, is that they in turn will affect others with their passive contribution to human evolution.

Imagine if one inter-dimensional message in the form of love, acceptance and healing, reverberated around the world, there would be a variation in all consciousness. Therefore as humans work with magical energies in the spirit of love, kindness and across time, man then absorbs the universal flow which affects all existence. Just one interconnected bolt of supernatural energy at a particular point in time, can trigger a sequence of events that would otherwise not have occurred. There are powers at work available for us to tune into that in our earthly consciousness would not register.

To be an effective magician requires the ability to still the mind enough to be open and receptive, enabling you to channel information in the form of energy. Each individual has the power within, as to whether they have the focus or the ability to tap this power and use it effectively, is another question. Those who are involved in activities such as running a race, competitive swimming, the martial arts or any sporting events, have an energy within that they need to hone, focus and channel with a particular precision to attain the desired result. The practice of magic is much the same, it takes dedication, commitment and an understanding of how to tap the inner power source and hone it.

Magic rituals create a link with intelligences more evolved than we are, they vibrate at a much higher frequency than mortals, and they are impossible to contact with our earthly everyday senses, hence the need for rituals. To successfully connect to supernatural entities, regular meditation and magic is combined, intensifying the connection.

Before beginning your ritual consider what it is you want to achieve, what end would you like to produce. The qualities you will need are imagination, patience, dedication, curiosity, the will to learn and the want to commit. Magic and meditation can only enrich and enhance  your life, as you become open to a myriad of possibilities. In some ways when you are practicing ritual magic you are dealing with a power not unlike electricity, and as with electricity it is meant to be handled with care as its exact nature cannot be defined. Learning what to do with the power you are invoking is as important as the stages of the magic ritual you are performing.

The practice of magic in modern times does not require a sacrifice and the spilling of blood  to appease the gods, or as an offering to the otherworldly beings who are to be summoned. The principles of ritual, many of which have carried through from ancient times, are as valid now as they were when performed centuries ago. Many of the consciousness exercises, techniques and meditations are still used today.

One question to ask yourself is why you want to practice ritual magic? The energies of the occult are powerful and a degree of reverence and caution is needed when working with these powers. Think of yourself as an initiate, or the sorcerer’s apprentice who is learning how to manifest and manage otherworldly energies. Ritual and magic work can be repetitive as you try spell casting and try again, over and over. Dedication is required and a commitment to what it is you are learning. Magic is a natural force available to be used by those who have the key to the door, magic is like alchemy forces come together to create. The are many paths that can be taken in the initiates journey. To become a magician you need imagination, the power of visualization, discipline, trust, faith, belief, intuition and the ability to commit.

When you begin your ritual work you will learn with practice, how to exercise control of consciousness and action through inner dimensions, thus becoming the master over the magic you are conjuring. In many ways you are the initiate learning how to handle the power, this is akin to the electrician who learns how to safely handle electricity, and always proceeds with caution and respect for the power being handled. It is also necessary to have an evolved moral code, guiding you towards using the powers you will be working with, for benign purposes only.

When learning how to practice magic we are absorbing information that alters our consciousness, depending on how we individually respond to it, this change penetrates the structure of our soul. Ritual depends on discipline, knowledge, order, and success depends on our ability to isolate a stream of consciousness, while expelling all influences that will interrupt the pure flow.

To become receptive to divine energy we learn how to achieve a blank mind, while maintaining an alert consciousness. It is necessary to become still and calm, yet remain focused and alert, relaxed and peaceful while being open, willing and ready. From the stillness and the silence comes the all.

In the stillness you may want to acknowledge, “I am not my body, my thinking, what I see, hear, taste, smell or touch, I am not affected in any way by my senses. I have the ability to control consciousness from whatever high level it is received.” Learning how to turn off individual consciousness, is the base from which all magic practices work from.

For ritual work a circle is created to work within, take a pen shape piece of clear quartz crystal and hold it in the right or the left hand, or you may use a wand in place of a crystal, a wand seems to add to the majesty of the moment. Stand up straight and point the crystal or wand, upwards, this is to acknowledge the divine energies from above, point the crystal or wand downwards to acknowledge all other supernatural beings. The energy is felt from the center of our being, face North and pointing the preferred magical object towards the floor, move in a clockwise direction creating a full circle, ending facing North again. Repeat the process, only this time draw a lateral circle, as though standing within a hoola hoop. Next turn sideways, and depending on which hand the magic tool is in, the left or right shoulder will be facing North. Repeat the original process, beginning North and working clockwise form a vertical circle, with this ritual a circle of the Cosmos is drawn . Before doing anything else a state of absolute mind stillness must be attained and maintained, this allows us to bring our minds to a point of focus leading to complete detachment to the outside world.

Focusing energy is done by holding a rod that is pointed at one end, or a wand, as you stand straight and face East, hold the wand in both hands and point it upwards with your hands touching your face. Keep your breathing relaxed and calm and imagine the energy from above connecting. Think, “let my energy and the energy of the wand, become as one with the Cosmos.”

There is a ritual of will and intention that can be done while you are in your magic circle, while holding your wand, conjure in your consciousness something that is worrying you. A problem that you naturally react to, acknowledge and feel the reaction, then think of the word banish, and see the problem being dismissed and disappearing into nothing. You are using the ability to control your consciousness by will and intention, by intentionally calling on something then intentionally banishing it. Very clearly tell the problem to “be gone,” you are sending it out into the universe to then dissipate, it becomes smaller than the naked eye can see and vanishes. Hold on to this point of nothingness for a moment, through will and intention, you have raised and laid something, you are now immune.

A very similar ritual, again while standing in your magic circle, with your wand in one hand, pointed downwards, conjure an image of what you want to change. See it in the darkened sky as if looking at a screen, concentrate on the energy within feel it building and moving upwards to then meet with all manner of supernatural energies. The energies meld into the image in the darkened sky obliterating it, the new imagery of what it is you want to create is manifested and appears on the screen. You feel all opposition to the new image released, there is no resistance to the new manifestation. Point your want upwards, feel the energy of that which you desire meeting with the tip of your wand and being transferred into you, to then manifest in your earthly life.

With all ritual magic you are moving from a place of neutrality, to a place of linking with the energy of the infinite, the source of energy. To become an adept at ritual magic means learning how to manage energy. Each night before going to sleep allowing your mind to empty, you do this by releasing the days thoughts and feelings. You are detaching yourself from earthly events and allowing yourself to become open to the all, you are rising above physicality. Begin each day with a clean slate, start with a neutral uncluttered mind each morning when you awaken, thus allowing yourself to be open to possibilities. Learn to rise above reaction to daily events, and remain in the zero space of neutrality which allows an objective view of all things. By practicing energy control you not only become a more powerful magician, but a more powerful human. This is a way of banishing all that is negative and being receptive to manifest all that is good and positive.

While standing within your ritual circle you can create another space around your body, this can be done with a small crystal in each hand, or a crystal in the left hand and wand in the right. Face North, stretch both arms above your head and let your wrists touch, keeping your arms straight bring them down to shoulder level, extended either side of you. Still keeping your arms straight move them in front of your body with wrists touching, then move both arms until you are touching your legs at the front. Do one full turn to the right and end up facing front, then one full turn to the left facing front. Imagine a white cocoon beginning at your feet, moving upwards and encasing your entire body, then meeting and sealing over your head. Here is your space of suspended animation, a space where you are not affected by what is going on anywhere, a space of complete neutrality, beyond time and space, you created and you control your circle of timelessness. By creating and inhabiting your cocoon of timelessness and light you open a doorway to the Cosmos and all the magic within, you become the keeper of the keys, to the doorway of magic.

Once it is established that energy is omnipresent, it can then be absorbed rather than being sought out, it is a force field in which an individual can become part of the whole. If energy IS then we must learn how to become ONE with it, if we are at ONE with the energy that IS, we then become part of the ALL, the SUPREME energy. Over time ritual preparation becomes faster as there is familiarity with the subtleties of the ebb and flow of energies, creating a cocoon of timelessness, light and neutrality can be done in a moment. The ultimate aim is the control of our Inner and Outer worlds, providing a link between Earth and beyond.

When creating a magical world in which to work while practicing rites, it is also necessary to know how to readily close the door and exit your created world once work has been completed. A simple ritual to collapse the magical space is to take three deep breaths, exhale deeply count backwards from three to one, when reaching one, clap both hands together three times and say the word “release.” Once this has been done, shake the hands as if shaking off water, sip some water and wash your hands.

Once you have the doorway to magic you must then learn how to conduct yourself in other dimensions, and learn how to decipher the information given to you, as often messages come in a symbolic manner. The symbol is a connection for you from one dimension to the other, deciphering the symbol is the key. Much like a new language symbols are your connection between dimensions in effect energy is being exchanged. When connecting with intelligent beings in other dimensions through magic ritual a language is being constructed to allow communication, this is done through symbolism. A skilled practitioner of the tarot may receive the symbol of a tarot card during their communication. A rune reader is likely to receive an inscription pertaining to a particular rune stone. A numerologist will see numbers, and an astrologer will see zodiac signs. Goddesses and Gods often appear and you may spontaneously feel their message, or there may be a slow dawning of understanding. You may also find that certain deities with particular traits present themselves often. If any of these symbols are presented to you and you have no history with any of the divination skills, allow yourself to meld into the symbol, by doing this your imagination and intuition will be activated.

Those not involved in divination practices may see a car, a house, water calm, or tumultuous, they may be shown a heart, this pertaining to love, there could be a multitude of other signs that can be related to. Other times a shape, or a sign is seen accompanied with a feeling the visual and the feeling creating a whole, this triggering the imagination and intuition and a message is delivered.  Through a mutual connection an understanding is reached between dimensions, and over time various symbols present themselves over and over, from this spontaneous understanding is reached. With regular ritual practice a natural harmony is reached and you have your dimensional Master key.

When a symbol is presented that you have never seen before you will not instantly decipher the message, however be still and feel yourself enter into the symbol, become one with it, by absorbing its essence, understanding will be reached. Magical understanding will come to you through merging with the symbols, your understanding and ability will evolve over time. Over time you will find that through ritual practice words will not be necessary,  understanding will come through symbolism and the feeling that goes with it, you will absorb the message the way you breathe in air. You don’t question what constitutes air, or what happens as you breathe the air in and how it affects your body, you just accept that it is the giver of life and you understand. It is the same with ritual magic and symbolism, you begin to breathe in the understanding and it reaches your consciousness. A symbol that often appears during ritual work is the ankh, the symbol for everlasting life, this can have a variety of meanings depending on when and how it is presented.

Look at the symbol of the ankh meaning everlasting life, imagine you were doing a love spell regarding the future success of a relationship and the symbol of everlasting life appeared, the meaning would be everlasting love, longevity, bonding, partnership, affirmation of love, durable partnership, depth. If the ankh appeared in answer to a spell associated with a business partnership, it would mean durability, strong ties, complementary objectives, ideas in sync, long term success. If the ankh appears like a figure eight, eight in numerology is associated with money, managing money, The figure eight often appears when there are obstacles to be overcome, it can mean success after effort, it can mean difficulties that will require action, determination and dedication. More than one ankh linked together can mean continuity, building, fitting together, working together, extending, growing. If as a symbol appears to you, you allow yourself to enter into it, let yourself become one with the energies and feel the message. In this way through ritual magic, one symbol can be presented and through merging with it, and feeling, a plethora of messages can be absorbed.

If you need to charge your energy you can visualize the ankh in front of you exuding energy and you absorbing the energy, this is a very effective meditative exercise. From this visualize  yourself filled with the energy of the ankh, then you are able to exude the energy to create harmony around you. Send the energy out to friends, family and loved ones, if someone is sick send healing energy to them. Once you begin to feel and understand the transference of energy, you will understand the depth and breadth of energy merging and sending.

Once your ritual has ended and the circle has been closed, document everything that you  felt, saw, heard and did. Draw any symbols that were presented to you and write what message was transferred from the symbols. During future rituals do the same and also note if any of the symbols are repeated.

Ritual magic should always be practiced at night, if you choose you can use the lunar cycles, for powerful rituals there is more energy during a full Moon, for less intense rituals the waning Moon is suitable. For ritual work candles can be inscribed with particular zodiac signs, depending on the intention of the spell you will be conjuring.

Air, the element of Air keeps us alive, Air is Prana, energy, when breathing and connecting with other dimensions we are breathing other atmospheres. Incense is lit to symbolize the element of Air, it creates an atmosphere that will match the frequency of the ritual you are practicing. With the element of Air you will invoke the archangel Raphael, he is the healer of all things a broken heart, physical ailments, emotional ailments, throughout time this is his role. Raphael instructs humanity, the sword he carries is the symbol associated with the element of Air, it is also the instrument to cut away disease, and negativity. The sword cuts through issues and brings matters to a head, the sword also prunes that which is no longer necessary. With the point of the sword, the energy of Raphael, and the movement of Air thoughts can be sent out to the universe, reaching into all dimensions. The sword protects, the sword defends, the tongue is a sword and can bring kindness or pain.

Fire, is a powerful element and when invoked, the archangel Michael should also be summoned, for his personification of reason and right overcoming wrong and narrowness. Fire overcomes, heals, cleanses, rejuvenates, by calling on Michael, the power of Fire is directed inwardly and outwardly. Michael is a healer and brings balance, he transforms fire into a safe and manageable form. This ritual begins once the match lights the candle and Michael is invoked to contain and channel the element of fire. The element of Fire can be invoked to help a ritual associated with letting go on some level or another, or to remove the old to make way for the new. It can also be invoked for a new relationship that wants to build on a clear foundation, the energy of fire fans the light of love. If you regularly think of Fire and Michael for a few moments each day, you will have no difficulty invoking the powerful element of Fire for your ritual. Whenever candles are lit before a Fire ritual, or before any ritual, do so with a sense of ceremony, attention and formality. Use a tapered candle or match, to light all candles, and with a sense of the inner spark being ignited to meet with the energy of other dimensions. Fire can warm us when we are cold or it can burn us if we get too close, and do not respect its power.  It can light the way and offer clarity, the understanding and managing of its power is all important.

Water, the element of Water pertains to the ebb and flow of emotions and relationships, before birth we are immersed in water, our bodies contain water. Plants need water to grow, crops and flowers need water, it is absorbed into the earth and gives life to all that grows. Water links conscious and unconscious energies with the all, integrating all life forms. If a water ritual is being performed the archangel Gabriel is called upon, Gabriel is the carrier of messages between different levels of intelligence. He is the symbol of fertility such as fertility of the mind, fertility of a business or fertility of the body to bring new life into being. Before beginning a ritual with the element of Water, take a cup fill it with water and place it near where you will be working, as you fill the cup you charge it with the energy and the intention of the magic spell you will be practicing. You are willing the energy of what it is you wish to achieve as you charge the cup. The cup has a consciousness and understands what is required, whatever the concept it is held within the cup. A powerful ritual is the transference of someone’s energy into a cup of water, as the cup is filled with water the person connected to the ritual is imagined in the cup. Their energy is moving within the water, you then drink the water with love and light while thinking of the spell you are about to perform, by doing this you become as one with their energy and they are part of the spell. This is often the ritual of lovers, it can also be done in the form of healing, the person becomes a part of the loving healing energy exuded and becomes one with the Cosmos. The cup can be used in reverse by filling it with water and whatever it is you want to remove from your life. Whether this be financial difficulties, letting go of a relationship, behaviour, negativity, focus as you fill the cup on whatever it is you want gone. You then tip the water out letting go of whatever it is you want removed, let water from the tap run on your hands as all negativity is washed away. Water rituals can help with emotions, worry, anxiety, love, bonding, partnership, healing.

Earth, contact is kept with Earth as links with other dimensions are attained, contact is kept with Earth as we work with inner and outer forces. Ariel is the archangel of Earth and presides over the luminaries, he connects us with creation and teaches us how to absorb Earth’s energies. Auriel is knowledge and experience and urges us to quest, Ariel helps our Earth consciousness connect with the great unknown, he offers us the key. Ariel encourages us to respect the Earth and its natural power of peace and harmony or natural disaster, Auriels monitors and controls Earth’s behaviour and the forces of it. A rock or a gemstone can be the symbol used for the element of Earth. Call on the element of Earth for any ritual where you would like to change one thing into another, such as a long term relationship into marriage. A part time job into a full time career, financial lack into abundance, where you need an alchemical reaction of one thing turning into another more valuable thing, Earth is the energy to work with. If your ritual is to do with wisdom and understanding coming to you concised into a symbol, an Earth ritual while invoking Auriel will provide the necessary energy. Call upon the element of Earth when you want answers in a feeling, via a symbol, you will absorb the message as a whole. Auriel plants seeds of consciousness that grow with vitality and life, providing answers to problems that arise on Earth. The symbol of a shield represents Earth and can be conjured as a means of protection also, the shield can also be a reflective area for that which is desired by the conjuror. The shield also helps abstract ideas take shape, take form and become understanding, the shield can draw understanding, or repel negativity. For a banishing ritual a shield can be used, as it repels negative people and situations, the shield is useful to draw something to you, or to repel or banish something as you deflect harmful thoughts or energies.

There is a colour and light ritual technique that can be used, the premise is along the lines of colour therapy. After drawing your circle, and before invoking, chanting, meditating, think of colour and let a colour pop into your mind. Whatever colour you choose, this will be the colour frequency from which you will be working during your ritual. This is like turning on a light in your home by flicking the switch, at the end of your session the light can be switched off. By doing this you are illuminating your inner being, and as you embark on your ritual you will see the chosen colour throughout your rite. This is a very efficient technique if your energy is at a low ebb, or you are feeling down in the dumps, or frazzled, the light will have a healing effect. You will find that there will be a particular feeling, depending on the colour of light you have chosen, or the colour that is revealed to you and you work with. The information you receive will depend on the frequency of the particular colour.

Ritual is a connection between differing dimensions, allowing information to travel from one to the other, as intelligences from other dimensions operate through inner dimensions. The ritual begins from the moment the circle is drawn and powerful energies are invoked. We then open ourselves up and become receptive to receive information and impressions, reflected back from other realms to be deciphered by the conscious mind. In some ways we are sending a beam of energy and light, and depending on the depth of connection some response is received from another intelligence. Sometimes impressions can be fleeting, such as catching a glimpse of something out of the corner of the eye, or thinking you heard something but don’t know where the sound came from. There can be a scent that arouses certain feelings, thoughts and memories, in a way, you are receiving thought, feeling, sound sense and imagery as a whole that is to be interpreted. This you do after you have completed your magical ritual and closed the circle. Magic rites begin with energy and attitude, a powerful motivation will allow you to release a power to work with, it is necessary to be totally present.

Consecratory rites, energies coming together for a specific purpose, a dedication is made to all who take part in the right, so that human and otherworldly dedicate to the mutual purpose. The rites of consecration include invocations to the deities, or beings you will be invoking, along with a clear definition of what the intention of the ritual is.

To prepare for banishing rites the intention must be clear from the beginning of the ritual, so that as you invoke energies they know for what purpose they have been summoned. When participating in a vanishing rite it is necessary to be ready to let go of whatever it is that you want banished, by consciously entering into this rite with this in mind it is easier to banish successfully.

Our consciousness is operating on diverse levels, and becoming more aware of our physical senses is an important aspect of ritual magic, as these senses link us to other dimensions. Our own attitude towards the performing of rites, places an integral part in successful spell casting. Regular practice along with a focused and dedicated attitude, will assure growth and a successful for the dedicated initiate. Many practitioners ring a bell at the beginning of a ritual before the circle is drawn, and at the end after the circle has been closed off. If you choose you may wear a particular outfit for ritual work only, this may be loose fitting trousers by a long sleeved top all in one colour. You may like a robe that wraps and you tie an elaborate, or colourful tie around it, whatever you decide to wear, only every wear it for ritual work and in the meantime keep it wrapped in fabric until it is needed. Before beginning any ritual magic you may wish to use a word that you like the sound of, this can be a made up word and by using it before you begin it initiates the beginning. Use it at the end of your ritual also. By preparing a sacred space, using candles, incense and scented oils, drawing a circle and invoking otherworldly energies, you have the tools to practice ritual magic. Always work with love in your heart and for the good of all, thus respecting the threefold law of “do no harm.”
