Meditation for the Occultist

We wish to declare something important to the reader:

We are not well versed in the occult and other relevant disciplines. We are Neophytes who share what we are currently studying. We implore the reader to read and learn from the original source.

Consider this website a portal or gateway towards the real occult masters and teachers.


Meditation is a well known exercise by most people. However the approach of the occultist to meditation is different to the ‘layman’.

The layman’s approach to meditation is basic.

He wants to receive the benefits of meditation such as a relaxed mind or a clear thought process. The layman will use basic techniques to acquire these benefits and will repeat the process.

However as occultists, our attitudes on meditation differ.

We meditate to transcend limitations, dive deep into our minds and to seek enlightenment.

Meditation is a building block to many other important occult exercises. Consider the following statements.

Meditation is the first step to a ritual (The Middle Pillar)

Meditation and Magic are entirely necessary to each other for the full development of the human soul. (Magical Ritual Methods)

The value of simple meditation practices, such as are found in Zen practice should not be discounted, as they can be a great help in developing body mind awareness, relaxation, and awareness of the immediate present (Condensed Chaos)

For the layman, a simple mindfulness meditation will suffice. As occultists our goals of enlightenment and spiritual transformation require special forms of meditation.

We will be looking at three important meditation exercises for the occultist in this article.

Yoga Meditation

The Yoga Framework for meditation is a great system for the beginner occultist to get started with.

It is recommended that the neophyte starts to learn about the different chakras, asanas (postures), pranayamas (breath control), dharana (concentration) and much more.

The 8 Limbs of Yoga

The Yoga system for meditation is important because it is a ‘systematic method of self-development‘ (The Middle Pillar) and a purification of the soul from the ego and its blemishes.

There is much information on the internet about getting started with Yoga meditation so we will not spend time outlining all the exact techniques. However we wish to put forward some tips that will help the neophyte in Yogic meditation.

If the occultist wishes to achieve success in meditation, he should first be well trained in pranayama (breath control).

We sincerely suggest that all persons intent on attaining success in meditation should first master the techniques of pranayama. It will help them greatly.

Meditations from the Tantra.

One pranayama exercise to help the occultist to better his meditation is the Nadi Shodhana Pranayama (Psychic Network Purification).

Nadi Shodhana, If practiced properly and without strain, is the greatest of pranayamas for purifying the body and stilling the mind (Meditations from the Tantra)

We will not explain this method as we are not sufficiently trained in Yoga and we do not wish to corrupt the teachings of Yoga. We advise the reader to perform his own research into this technique.

There are some tips I would like to put forward regarding Yoga Meditation:

Work equally on each chakra.

Many people focus on one chakra because they want the benefits of that specific chakra.

This is futile.

If your preceding chakras are not open, prana (vital life force) cannot flow up towards the chakra you wish to improve.

It is advised that the practitioner balances his time and efforts between the different chakras.

Don’t get frustrated.

We tend to get frustrated when we are unable to maintain focus in meditation. We need to remind ourselves that it is okay to lose focus as it is natural for the mind to wonder off and on ponder every thought.

The neophyte should make changes to his meditation routine so that he can meditate better.

Consider the changes below:

  • Focus on something interesting.
  • Meditate in the Morning.
  • Alternate Nostril Breathing.
  • Change Lifestyle Habits.

Maintain a schedule.

A schedule strengthens the individuals resolution to do something.

By making meditation part of your schedule you are giving it importance and thereby are more likely to persist in your meditation practices.

Meditation should be a habit among your other habits like brushing your teeth, exercising, reading and so on.

Meditations on the Tarot

The Tarot is a deck of cards originating from the 15th century, which were used to play games such as Tarocchini, French Tarot and Königrufen.

Then in the late 18th century, Tarot cards began to be used for divination purposes.

On 1 March 1933, Carl Jung spoke about the Tarot during a seminar he was conducting on active imagination.

Those are sort of archetypal ideas, of a differentiated nature, which mingle with the ordinary constituents of the flow of the unconscious, and therefore it is applicable for an intuitive method that has the purpose of understanding the flow of life, possibly even predicting future events.

While Tarot cards today are mainly used for divination purposes, the occultist uses the Tarot to access the archetypes that are within the cards.

Magicians regard archetypes as various forms or images of divinity that teach us about ourselves and our place in the divine universe.

There are many occult exercises one can perform with the Tarot, however for this article we will limit ourselves to one starter exercise the neophyte can work with.

If you wish to get a full understanding of Tarot Meditation, you should consider the following books:

The meditation we will provide here is sourced from Israel Regardie’s The Middle Pillar.

  1. Shuffle the cards of the Major Arcana and choose one at random.
  2. Observe the card deeply . Take note of the symbolism, the colors, the patterns and other significant factors.
  3. Close your eyes and try to re-create that card in your minds eye.
  4. After 5 minutes of roughly re-creating the card in your mind begin to dismantle the card. Separate the different elements of the cards until nothing remains in the mind.
  5. When the image is no longer in the mind, try to hold on to that mental silence from the meditation. This mental silence is important because in this time some spiritual information may be transmitted to you.
  6. Slowly come out of the meditation.

There are many other types of tarot meditation. If you wish to find the different types, have a look at the three links I have placed above.

Kabbalah Meditation

The neophyte occultist will know that the Kabbalah has an important place in the Western Esoteric Tradtion.

Virtually all Western Spiritual Systems can trace their roots to the Qabbalistic Tree of Life” (Self-Initiation Into the Golden Dawn Tradition).

Before I procced to provide a Kabbalah Meditation, I would like to advise the neophyte occultist to learn the Hebrew Alphabet, as the Hebrew Alphabet is the primary alphabet of Western Magic.

Consider the following statement:

These letters can also have a psychological influence on the aspirant who meditates upon them – affecting changes in consciousness. The importance of memorizing the Hebrew Alphabet cannot be stressed enough, for it is one tool that the magician will use constantly throughout his/her ceremonial workings” (Self-Initiation Into the Golden Dawn Tradition).

Now I will put forth a beginner Kabbalistic Meditation. I strongly advise that the reader studies the Kabbalah from the established authors and teachers. I will leave a list of resources at the end of this section.

Meditation with the Hebrew Alphabet

Now that we know that the Hebrew Alphabet is very influential for the occultist we should begin to connect with them on a deeper level.

Twenty-two fundamental letters were carved by God, sculpted, weighed & combined

Sepher Yetzirah

Get into a meditative state. In a meditative state the conscious mind is submerged and the subconscious mind is active.

If we want to deeply connect with the Hebrew Alphabet we must fill our subconscious mind with it.

Choose one and focus on its shape. Close your eyes and see it clearly in your minds eye” (Three Kabbalistic Meditations.)

Perform different visualization exercises with your chosen letter.

  • See the letter as a certain color.
  • See the letter contrasting with another background color.
  • See the letter ablaze with fire.

There are many other exercises you can perform with the Hebrew Alphabet. For further reading into Kabbalah Meditation please check the hyperlinks below:

3 Effective Mental Alchemy Techniques

If physical alchemy is the transmutation from copper (invaluable metal) to gold (valuable metal), then mental alchemy is the transmutation from undesirable mental states to desirable mental states.

“Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art” (The Kybalion)

If you are fearful, and you wish to become more courageous, the process of mental alchemy will be transmuting fear into courage.

There are many mental alchemy techniques, however in this article we will limit ourselves to three effective techniques in mental alchemy:

  1. Emotional Transmutation.
  2. Polarity Transmutation.
  3. Correspondence Transmutation.
Advertisements

1. Transmuting emotions into productivity.

Emotions are raw energy.

Any action performed under the influence of emotion is more powerful than an action that is not performed with emotion.

Love, romance, and sex are all emotions capable of driving men to heights of super achievement.

Think and Grow Rich

Mothers perform great feats when the fear of potential harm to her baby is present.

When fighting, any blow influenced by anger/rage is much stronger (however, less accurate).

With regard to memory, emotions make a sensation or idea easier to memorize as opposed to an emotionless idea (The more interest that is given into an idea, the more memorable that idea becomes).

This mental alchemy technique is concerned with; turning your emotions into energy and using that energy to become more productive.

EMOTION -> ENERGY -> PRODUCTIVITY

How to transmute emotions into productivity.

Maintain and Regulate Emotions.

You must maintain your emotions, rather than acting on each fleeting emotion. Instead of exhibiting a certain emotion when it feels normal to do so, keep it inside (this is not suppressing the emotion, this is storing it for later use).

Our purpose in this step is not to suppress our emotions forever, rather it is to acknowledge our emotions and store them for later transmutation into energy.

Convert Emotion into Energy.

Now that you have some emotions stored in your ’emotions bank’, you have to withdraw those emotions before you are to work on a project or require energy for some reason.

When you resurface previously buried emotions, you begin to experience those emotions. And since emotion is energy, you can then use that ’emotional energy’ when working on a project, creating art, studying, etc.

For example, Mary before painting an artwork takes a brief pause and unearths all those buried emotions. Upon unearthing her emotions, she begins to feel those emotions (positive or negative). She bathes herself in those emotions for a couple of moments, and now she possesses something called ’emotional energy’.

Focus Energy onto a Project.

Now that you possess the powerful ’emotional energy’, you must be sure not to waste it on any non-beneficial pursuit.

You must focus your emotional energy on your prioritized project.

If you paint, compose or write, use emotional energy to motivate you and to transform your emotions onto the canvas, on the song or the book.

2. Utilize the Principle of Polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”

 The Kybalion.

The Principle of Polarity defines that everything has two sides, two aspects, two poles: a pair of opposites.

The Principle of Polarity shows the neophyte that he is able to transmute from one mental state to its opposite

Examples of this include:

  • Noise & Quiet
  • North & South
  • East & West
  • Positive & Negative
  • Hot & Cold
  • Light & Darkness
  • Truth & Falsehood
  • Sharp & Dull

How to transmute from one mental state to its opposite

Knowledge and continual remembrance of the Principle of Polarity is half the work in transmuting from mental state to mental state.

If you are in a depressed mental state, it is wise to remind yourself of the opposite mental state (joy).

By remembering the opposite mental state, you are making it known that there is always another mental state.

And when the other mental state is considered, the individual can subconsciously work towards attaining that state.

The other half of transmuting from state to state is ‘performing actions that correspond to your desired state’

This involves immersing yourself into the desired mental state so that you can manifest that desired state. It is well known that if your thoughts, body language and behaviors are positive then so shall your mental state be.

For instance:

Just as someone who is throwing a tantrum and screaming has put himself in the Anger state, one can perform actions that could put him in the Love state.

If you wish to enter into a ‘Love’ state of mind, perform acts of love.

Give to charity, help out people, perform acts of kindness, be caring and attentive to people’s problems and so on.

Also, this technique could also include thinking, visualizing and reminiscing on his own experiences with love.

He may remember the times he was loving to others, or others were loving to him.

He could visualize being loving to someone else. And he may plan on being loving in the future.

All of these mental actions have the ability to switch his mental state from Anger/Hate to Love

3. Utilize the Principle of Correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.”

The Kybalion.

This statement could be re-formatted as such:

‘As outside, so inside; as inside, so outside.’

or

‘As in the conscious mind, so in the subconscious mind; As in the subconscious mind, so in the conscious mind.’

So whatever state the conscious mind is in for an extended amount of time, the subconscious mind will adapt to and whatever state the subconscious mind is in, the conscious mind will adapt to.

“Every thought or action which is not harmonious, whether through ignorance or design, will result in discord and limitation of all kinds”

Murphy, J (2011).

Daily behavior and speech is absorbed by the subconscious, and then whatever is registered in the subconscious will be manifested later on.

The principle is like a cycle, the contents of the (sub) conscious may change but the cycle is everlasting.

The Subconscious and Conscious Mind Diagram

Hence by understanding the interdependent, yet interrelated nature of the subconscious and the conscious mind, we come to a point where there are two methods of influencing behavior.

The first method is using the subconscious mind to influence the conscious mind and the second method is using the conscious mind to influence the subconscious mind.

How to use the Principle of Correspondence to transmute from state to state.

  • Create Good Habits & Leave Bad Habits

Whatever you busy yourself with consciously, will manifest in the subconscious mind.

Changing your habits, changes your mental programming.

It is important to engage yourself with good habits so that the subconscious mind is programmed positively.

And, you should refrain from bad habits as you do not want to program the subconscious mind with negativity and a bad attitude.

  • Make Changes to Your External Environment

The subconscious mind is like a sponge, it absorbs any external stimulus and imprints your mind with such stimulus.

If your external environment is clean, peaceful, and organized, so will be your mind.

What is the External Environment?

The External Environment is anything outside your internal environment (the mind).

You can physically observe your External Environment (your room, your house, your workplace, the people you associate with, the places you visit, etc.)

By making changes to your external environment, you also make changes to your internal environment.

  • Clean your room daily.
  • Visit good places/venues.
  • Be vigilant of what you consume. (media, foods, music, etc.)
  • Accept and Reject Heterosuggestions

If anyone gives you a negative suggestion reject it, and if anyone gives you a positive suggestion accept it.

Remember, whatever is accepted by the conscious mind is accepted by the subconscious.

If you are given a negative suggestion, consciously deny it. Tell yourself ‘I am not that way, and those individuals who give me the negative suggestion are wrong’.

When people give you a positive suggestion/compliment, accept it and tell yourself ‘I am that way, they are correct’.

  • Alter a negative statement to a positive statement.

Instead of saying something like “I can’t do this”, say “I can do this” or “I can do this if I try hard”.

If you find yourself saying a negative statement, stop in the middle of the statement and either alter the statement or start a new positive statement.

Joseph Murphy (2011) mentions a story of a girl looking at an expensive bag through a store window.

She was about to say, “I can’t afford that bag”, when instead she said “That bag is mine. It is for sale. I accept it mentally, and my subconscious sees to it that I receive it”.

At eight o’clock Christmas Eve her fiancé presented her with a bag the same as the one she looked at in the morning.

“Never finish a negative statement; reverse it immediately, and wonders will happen to your life” (Murphy, 2011).

Recap

In this article we covered three main mental alchemy techniques:

  1. Emotional Transmutation
  2. Polarity Transmutation
  3. Correspondence Transmutation

Emotional Transmutation involves converting emotions into an ’emotion infused energy’ and using that powerful energy towards a project or goal.

Polarity Transmutation involves switching from one mental state to its opposite through simply acknowledging the opposite mental state and performing actions that correspond to your desired mental state.

Correspondence Transmutation involves reprogramming your subconscious mind so that your conscious mind is operating on the lines of your will and desire.

Mental Fascination

William Walker Atkinson

In this manual I shall use the term “Mental Fascination” is the sense of: The action of a Mental Force that powerfully influences the imagination, desire ,or will of another.

This is my own broad definition which includes all the varied phenomena of Personal Magnetism, Psychological Influence,Hypnotism, Mesmerism, Charming, etc., etc., all of which I hold to be but varying phases of phenomena of one Force.

What is the nature of the Force which produces that which we call Mental Fascination, which latter I have defined as “The action of a Mental Force that powerfully influences the imagination, desire or will of another?” Mental Fascination is the manifestation—what is the nature of the Mental Force that powerfully influences?

As you will see in some of the following chapters, there have been many theories advanced to account for this Force, the theories varying from “magnetic fluids” to mere simple suggestions on the part of the influencing person.”

5 Powerful Occult Exercises

The spiritual/occult teachers write & preach the important ideas and exercises and the modern world rejects them, claiming that there is no scientific evidence to support these exercises. 

But many years later, after many studies and observations, academics and scientists are able to prove the benefits and use of an exercise and they inform the masses of these exercises at conferences, psychology appointments and so on.

For instance: Meditation.

In the past, the Western world would look at Buddhists and other practitioners of meditation and would laugh and say that they are wasting their time sitting in one area for an extended amount of time.

But now, the Western world is at the feet of the occult teachers trying to soak up every wisdom from them.

Some of the exercises mentioned here have been ‘validated by science’, but some of them are yet to be. 

There is no need to wait for ‘proof’, science lags behind the works of the occult wisdom. 

By the time you are of old age, then they will find scientific evidence of some of the occult exercises. 

With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get into the 5 Powerful Occult Exercises.

Visualisation.

In the book ‘Mental Fascination‘, the author William Walker mentions;

Visualization, is simply the creation of a strong Mental Image of the thing desired, and perfecting it each until it becomes almost clear as an existing material thing. Then the Visualization tends to Materialize itself–that is, it begins to build around itself (the) actual material conditions corresponding with the mental framework.”

Visualisation can assist you in manifesting your desires, if you apply it properly and regularly. 

Visualisation is very popular not only among students of the occult, but also widely used by people who are high achievers such as sportspeople and talented people.

Creative visualization is a good example of how to use your imagination to help you create whatever you want to happen in your life. The technique has been around for a long time, has been well-researched, and its usefulness has been demonstrated” (Brenner, 2016).

The Procedure:

Abigail Brenner M.D ends her article, ‘The Benefits of Creative Visualization’ with the requirements of visualisation to be effective.

There are three requirements for creative visualization to be fully effective:

1.) the desire to create what you have decided to visualize

2.) the belief in what you have chosen to attain through your visualization and the certainty that you will attain it, and 

3.) the acceptance of having whatever you have visualized as your goal”  (Brenner, 2016).

William Walker Atkinson, the influencing force of the New Age Movement mentions the process of visualization in his book ‘Mental Fascination’ :

Bring the Positive Imagination to see and feel the thing as actually existent. Then by constant practice and meditation the Mental Atmosphere becomes foremed, and the rest is all a matter of time. See yourself as you wish to be. See others as you wish them to be.

There are many different many variations to the procedure of visualisation, the above ones are sufficient for the beginner, but we also advise our readers to pursue the works of Joseph Murphy, William Walker Atkinson and other occult authors to get the best description of visualization and its exercises.

Thought Control

How many people have been ruined by their thoughts ? 

And how many people have become successful because of their thoughts ?

The level of thought control is the difference between a successful person and a miserable person.

Through concentration a person is able to collect and hold his mental and physical energies at work.

A concentrated mind pays attention to thoughts, words, acts and plans.

The person who allows his mind to roam at will will never accomplish a great deal in the world.

He wastes his energies. If you work, think, talk and act aimlessly, and allow your brain to wander from your subject to foreign fields, you will not be able to concentrate.

You concentrate at the moment when you say, ‘I want to, I can, I will’” (Atkinson, 1908) 

STRENGTH TAROT CARD

The Procedure:

Thought Control is self explanatory.

Ignore thoughts of things you wish to stay away from (failure, poverty, illness) and concentrate on thoughts on things you wish to manifest (success, freedom, happiness).

In ‘Initiation into Hermetics’, we find Franz Bardon’s explanation of daily exercise helpful to the beginner:

“Take a seat in a comfortable chair or lie down on a settee. Relax the whole body, close your eyes and observe the train of your thoughts for five minutes, trying to retain it. 

The main point is not to forget yourself, not to lose the train of thoughts, but to pursue it attentively”

The author advises the reader to start with this exercise and to add time to the exercise as the student becomes more confident.

“Having obtained a certain skill in this exercise, you may turn to the following one

The purpose will now be to hold onto a single thought or idea for a longer while, and to suppress any other thoughts associating and intruding with force on the mind.

Vigorously refuse all the other thoughts that have nothing to do with the thoughts being exercised.

To conclude, we can apply thought control in two main ways:

  1. Focusing on one thought and refusing all other thoughts.
  2. Focusing on a train of thought without forgetting the thoughts.

And most importantly we must concentrate and focus on positive thoughts so as to attract positive circumstances in our lives.

And we must refrain from thinking deeply about anything negative, as we will attract negative circumstances if we do so.

Sigil Magick

This exercise uses psychological techniques to manifest desires.

Don’t be confused by the term ‘magick’. 

‘Magick’ refers to the use of energy, natural forces and willpower in order to bring about change

Aleister Crowley, founder of Thelema (ideaology), differentiates between performance magic (card magic, mental tricks, sleight of hand) and magic that is used to bring about change in the world with the addition of a ‘k’ to the end of the word.

Sigil Magick is simply the use of symbols, the subconscious mind and your will in order to make changes to your reality.

In a sentence, the procedure consists of creating a unique symbol sourced from a statement of intention (‘I am wealthy’), then sending that symbol into the chaosphere or to your unconscious mind, then the sigil is considered to be charged and working to manifest your desire.

The Procedure:

  1. First you must create the sigil.

In Liber Null & Psychonaut: An introduction into chaos magic.’ by Peter J. Carroll, which is a primer on Chaos Magick, the process of creating a sigil is explained.

The author mentions three methods, but we will only refer to the first and most popular method:

The Word Method.

This consists of writing your statement of intention, then eliminating any repeating letters and lasting forming a symbol from the remaining letters. 

The sigil does not need to be a work of art, however the more visually pleasing it is to look at, the easier the symbol can be ingrained into the subconscious which means better results with your sigil magick.

The last and most important step is releasing the sigil from your conscious mind to the subconscious mind or to the chaosphere. 

There are many methods to do this, but those methods are either excitatory or inhibitory in nature.

The most common ways of activating a sigil is through sexual orgasm, burning the sigil and concentrating on it.

Before we finish the procedure for sigils we must need to mention one important factor that may affect the effectiveness of sigil magick.

You should never wait and keep remembering the sigil after you have released it. 

You must release the sigil and completely forget about it.

Breath Work

Breath Work is a powerful technique used in order to alter emotions, alter mental states, bring amazing benefits to the body and the mind and other remarkable benefits.

Each breathing rhythm has its corresponding emotion or mental state. 

A journal entry entitled, “Breathing rhythms and emotions” by I. Homma & Y. Masaoka explains this phenomena in detail:

“All subjects were tested for anxiety levels by using Spielberger’s State‐Trait anxiety Inventory. A positive correlation between trait scores and increase in respiratory frequency (f) was observed.”

Breath work is an essential tool in any neophyte of the arcane arts tool belt. 

If you wish to learn the Science of Breath Work I will have to refer you to a Yogi and their corresponding works. 

We will use extracts from William Walker Atkinson book, “The Hindu-Yogi Science Of Breath (A Complete Manual of the Oriental Breathing Philosophy of Physical, Mental, Psychic and Spiritual Development)” to explain the different methods of breathwork.

The Procedure:

One of the first lessons in the Yogi Science of Breath, Is to learn how to breathe through the nostrils, and to overcome the common practice of mouth-breathing.”

‘Civilised’ man with all his innovations and medication is still at a loss. He breathes from the mouth instead of the nose. 

“Many of the diseases to which civilized man is subject are undoubtedly caused by this common habit of mouth-breathing.”

The journal entry, ‘Effects of Nasal or Oral Breathing on Anaerobic Power Output and Metabolic Responses’ attempts to prove the hypothesis that “nasal breathing would be more advantageous than oral breathing.”

Nasal breathing filters large particles from the surrounding environment and may help to deliver air with fewer contaminants to the respiratory system. Additionally, nasal breathing increases the humidity of the inspired air and may make it more pleasurable to the lungs for utilization. Finally, because of its effect as a potent vasodilator, NO (Nitric Oxide) produced during nasal breathing could be beneficial during exercise.”

Get into the habit of breathing from the nose. 

In my daily life, I breathe deeply from my nose every time I remember to. Additionally, to accustom myself to nose breathing, I try to keep my mouth shut and I naturally begin to breathe with my nose.

We will elucidate on different forms of breathwork techniques in a future article, however if you wish to learn more, we advise you to read William Walker Atkinsions take on the  different Yoga breaths techniques.

Some of the different techniques he mentions are the: 

  • YOGI COMPLETE BREATH
  • YOGI RHYTHMIC BREATHING
  • YOGI PHYSIC BREATHING
  • YOGI SPIRITUAL BREATHING
Advertisements

Mediation 

Meditation is the one of the most important technique in the realm of The Arcane Arts.

We will not explain much into meditation as we know most of our readers are acquainted with the benefits and the methods. 

We will reference some great works into the science of mediation and add some additional remarks.

In all occult ideologies such as Thelema, Rosicrucianism, Hermeticism, Chaos Magick, etc, meditation is praised as the most essential.

In ‘Condensed Chaos by Phil Hine, the author mentions:

The value of simple meditation practices, such as are found in Zen practice should not be discounted, as they can be a great help in developing body mind awareness, relaxation, and awareness of the immediate present.

The Procedure:

In Part 1 of Book IV by Aleister Crowely & Mary d’Este Sturges it is mentioned:

“The ultimate idea of meditation being to still the mind, it may be considered a useful preliminary to still consciousness of all the functions of the body”

That’s all meditation really is. 

There are many different exercises for many different reasons, however we call our readers attention to most basic form.

  1. Get in a comfortable position. (Not too comfortable, you don’t want to sleep)
  1. Focus on one thing. 

That could be focusing on one place on your body, for instance between your eyes. Or it could be focusing on a mantra/repeated statement. Or it can be focusing on the rhythm of the breath. Choose a basic thing and focus on it.

  1. Ignore intruding thoughts.

This is the difficult part.

The mind will yell at you, “I’m bored, let’s think about such and such”

You must reject those intrusive thoughts, but do not be mad if you have too many other thoughts. 

That is simply how our minds are programmed. We are programmed to be constantly planning and thinking. 

Meditation improves the individual’s will power and self-control. If you are able to meditate for five minutes a day, you will achieve extraordinary feats in your personal and work life.

We have explained one method of mediation but we advise our readers to read more into mediation as what i have mentioned is nothing compared to the universe of knowledge out there. 

Conclusion

We want to make the point clear to our readers, that occult or magick is not working with the devils or spirits. It is simply using energy, emotions and willpower to influence changes in the world. 

All of the techniques presented here are sourced from the occult but are backed by multitudes of scientific evidence. 

To recap we mentioned Five Powerful Occult Techniques:

  1. Visualisation
  2. Thought Control
  3. Sigil Magick
  4. Breath Work
  5. Meditation

These five techniques are enough for beginners to develop their personality, willpower and to manifest their wildest desires.
