Disease in most of us is due to a waste of prana generated in the body. Complete relaxation of the body during sleep and several times during the day will conserve the prana generated in the body.
Thoughts of happiness, hope, faith, courage and strength tend to conserve prana. While thoughts of sorrow, fear and worry tend to deplete the prana generated in the body
Stand or sit with spine erect, point your lips just as you do when you whistle, leaving a small hole. Now close your nostrils with the fingers and inhale slowly a deep breath through the pointed mouth. Close the mouth and exhale through the nostrils. Practice this about ten times. This will cure diseases due to impure blood.
Practise whistling each day for about five minutes. This will strengthen the lungs and purify the blood as well.
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. 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.
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.
“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 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.
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
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.
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).
In this article we covered three main mental alchemy techniques:
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.
There can be no doubt that our psychical force creates a movement of the ether, which transmits itself afar like all movements of ether and becomes perceptible to b rains in harmony with our own.
The transformation of a psychic action into an ethereal movement, and the reverse, may be analogous to what takes place on a telephone, where the receptive plate, which is identical with the plate at the other end, reconstructs the sonorous movement transmitted, not by means of sound, but by electricity.”
The mind of one person acts like a ” transmitter” of the wireless telegraph, while the mind of the other acts as a “receiver” of the same set of instruments.
Man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, -bring forth.- If no useful seeds are -put -into it, then an abundance of useless weed-seeds will -fall -therein, and will continue to produce their kind.
Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts.

The “Science of Breath” touches Yoga at many points, and although chiefly concerned with the development and control of the physical, has also its psychic side, and even enters the field of spiritual development. In India there are great schools of Yoga, comprising thousands of the leading minds of that great country. The Yoga philosophy is the rule of life for many people.
The pure Yogi teachings, however, are given only to the few, the masses being satisfied with the crumbs which fall from the tables of the educated classes, the Oriental custom in this respect being opposed to that of the Western world.
“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.”
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.
“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).
“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.
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)
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).
“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 toretain 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:
Focusing on one thought and refusing all other thoughts.
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.
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.
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 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.
“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.
“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.”
“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
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.
“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 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.
Get in a comfortable position. (Not too comfortable, you don’t want to sleep)
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.
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.
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:
These five techniques are enough for beginners to develop their personality, willpower and to manifest their wildest desires.
Make a Contribution
We spend some considerable time collecting, compiling and formatting free books. It would be great if we can get some support, so we can provide more resources.
In this article our aim is to give our readers a brief outline of the 7 Universal Principles:
The Principle of Mentalism.
The Principle of Correspondence.
The Principle of Vibration.
The Principle of Polarity.
The Principle of Rhythm.
The Principle of Cause & Effect.
The Principle of Gender.
These 7 Principles are used for the purpose of Mental Transmutation.
“Mental Transmutation means the art of changing and transforming mental states, forms, and conditions into others.“
Just as how copper is transmuted into gold. Negative mental states can be transmuted into positive mental states.
“Mind may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition; vibration to vibration.”
The Kybalion mainly looks at the theory of these important principles. It is our aim to provide the practical techniques that can assist you in mental transmutation. This article lists the main techniques that correspond to each principle. If one wishes to read the full explanation, he is advised to read through the free eBook: Practical Mental Alchemy
If the reader is after hermetic alchemy, then this article and the Kybalion is not suited for his purposes. We will outline the true essence of Hermeticism in a later article.
While The Kybalion is not a great book on Hermeticism, it is a powerful book containing powerful principles that every neophyte should understand and apply.
In this article ALL REFERENCES ARE FROM THE KYBALION UNLESS OTHERWISE MENTIONED.
The Principle of Mentalism
“If the Universe is Mental in its nature, then Mental Transmutation must be the art of CHANGING THE CONDITIONS OF THE UNIVERSE, along the lines of Matter, Force and Mind.”
This principle is the backbone of all other principles.
The neophyte must understand that the Universe is a Mental Creation.
You may ask, “What is meant by the statement: The Universe is a Mental Creation?”
In the perspective of the Kybalion:
“The Universe is Mental—held in the Mind of The All.”
“The All creates the Universe mentally, in a manner akin to the process whereby Man creates Mental Images.”
These two quotes show us that alchemy is in fact a mental activity.
The rest of the principles build up on the Principle of Mentalism as you will see below:
Correspondence: Utilizing the knowledge of the two minds to change deeply rooted thought processes & habits.
Vibration: Changing mental states and moods by raising or reducing the vibration of the individual.
Polarity: Changing mental states by switching from one mental state to its polar opposite.
Rhythm: Neutralizing the negative effects of the constant ups and downs of life.
Cause and Effect: How we can avoid being affected by internal and external situations and instead become the cause for external and internal situations.
Gender: How we can balance our mind and obtain the appropriate level of objectivity and subjectivity.
All the principles correlate together perfectly and they all work towards achieving the same goal: Mental Transmutation.
The Principle of Correspondence
“As Above, so Below., as Below, so Above”
Whatever occurs repeatedly in the conscious mind will be imprinted in the subconscious mind, and whatever is in the subconscious mind will manifest in the conscious mind.
The principle also means:
The rate of vibration at your mental plane will affect the rate of vibration at the physical plane and vice versa.
If the mental vibrations are low, then so will the physical vibrations be low.
Why do think many people suffer from a lack of energy and motivation?
Why are more and more people suffering from mental illness?
If their physical vibrations are low then so will their mental vibrations be low. When the vibrations of the body and mind are low this affects the body in totality keeping it at a weak and feeble state.
Correspondence is simple. Make sure you fill your subconscious mind with positivity so that you can manifest positivity in your daily thought patterns.
The subconscious 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.
By making changes to your external environment, you also make changes to your internal environment.
The main aspect of this technique is cleaning and making sure the areas where you spend most of your time are organized and emanate positive vibrations.
3. Substitute negative beliefs with its positive counterpart.
To substitute beliefs:
You must enter into a state where your conscious mind is submerged. Enter into a sleepy, drowsy state, either through meditation, hypnosis or before sleep. “In this state the negative thoughts, which tend to neutralize your desire and so prevent acceptance by your subconscious mind are no longer present” (Murphy, 2011).
Then, sum up your idea or belief you wish to impregnate the subconscious mind in a short, easy to say, lullaby.Charles Baudouin, a professor at the Rousseau Institute in France concocted this method in 1910, he mentions that the short and easy lullaby eases the process of impregnating an idea into the subconscious.
While you are in a sleepy drowsy state, repeat the lullaby over and over again. Depending on how deeply the negative belief has been ingrained, you will start tosee some positive results in a week to a months’ time. Of course, results will vary from person to person. For me, I started to see some results in a fortnight.
The Principle of Vibration
“To change your mood or mental state–change your vibration.”
“One may change his mental vibrations by an effort of Will, in the direction of deliberately fixing the Attention upon a more desirable state.”
The Practical Application:
1. Mental State Check & Switch
2. Raise Your Vibration.
The Principle of Polarity
“To destroy an undesirable rate of mental vibration, put into operation the Principle of Polarity and concentrate upon the opposite pole to that that you desire to suppress. Kill out the undesirable by changing its polarity.”
“If you are possessed by Fear, do not waste time trying to “kill out” Fear, but instead cultivate the quality of Courage, and the Fear will disappear.”
“The mastery of Polarization is the mastery of the fundamental principles of Mental Transmutation or Mental Alchemy”
1. The Symbolism Technique
2. Perform Actions that Correspond to your Desired State
3. Focus on the Desired State.
The Principle of Rhythm
“The Master by rising mentally to the higher plane causes the swing of the mental pendulum to manifest on the Lower Plane, and he, dwelling on his Higher Plane, escapes the consciousness of the swing backward.”
This involves raising the vibrations to a certain level, so that one enters a higher plane. Once he is in the higher plane, the events of the lower plane won’t affect him as much.
“It is akin to rising above a thing and letting it pass beneath you.”
The Principle of Rhythm is always active, however its effects can be avoided.
1. The Law of Neutralization
2. Always Remember the Principle of Rhythm
3. Ride The Pendulum
The Principle of Causation
“Nothing escapes the Principle of Cause and Effect, but there are many Planes of Causation, an one may use the laws of the higher (cause) to overcome the laws of the higher to overcome the laws of the lower (effect)”
“The masses of people are carried along, obedient to their environment; the wills and desires of others stronger than themselves; the effects of inherited tendencies; the suggestions of those about them: and other outward causes; which tend to move them about on the chess-board of life like mere pawns.”
“By rising above these influencing cause, the advanced Hermetitist seek a higher plane of mental plane of mental action, and by dominating their moods, emotions, impulses and feelings, they create for themselves new characters, qualities and powers, by which they overcome their ordinary environment, and thus become practically players instead of mere Pawns.”
1. Become a Cause not an Effect.
The Principle of Gender
“There is this dual aspect in the mind of every person. The “I” represents the Masculine Principle of Mental Gender—the “Me” represents the Feminine Principle”
“The tendency of the Feminine Principle is always in the direction of receiving impressions, while the tendency of the Masculine Principle is always in the direction of giving out, or expressing”
“The Feminine Principle conducts the work of generating new thoughts, concepts, ideas, including the work of the imagination, . . . and the Masculine Will in stimulating and energizing the creative portion of the mind.”
The Feminine is not better than the Masculine Principle and the Masculine is not better than the Feminine Principle, They complete each other,
If one had high levels of the Feminine Principle, they would be in their head most of the time, very creative and thoughtful, however they won’t be able to act on their ideas and their creativity.
If one has high levels of the Masculine Principle, they would be very motivated, objective and active, but they won’t have any ideas or creativity that would make their work creative or deep.
