All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Ask anyone how to get magic, and the answer they will give you is simple and correct: practice.
But anyone who has been this for a while can give you a million analogies as to why this is not the full answer anymore than someone asking how to build muscle and you’re told: lift more. You do all of those squats and before you know it, you have an injury. Why? Because while you were lifting more, you weren’t lifting correctly.
Magic isn’t all that dissimilar.
HOW should one practice? Is there a right and a wrong way to practice? What helps with some things more than others?
Here are some good tips:
One of the often forgotten aspects of magick practice is MARU (Center Work). These exercises increase psychic ability and improve the general health. They also increase magickal abilities!
Apart from this I highly recommend working with an Earth Energy methodology such as Vivaxis, this will improve your sensitivity to, and ability to manipulate Earth Energies. A much-forgotten ability!
I appreciate you responding and the additional information. I'm afraid though I do not know very much about Vivaxis but I do very much agree with and understand that centering is extremely important. If you would please feel free to add information about this if you would like it could be very helpful.
Does anyone follow the basics of Martial Arts & Yoga?
To me they teach that the Mind Body is not separate.
Yeah, the body, the energy and the mind are super closely linked. For example, if you look at chakra points, they all line up with major glands and periferal nervous centres. I think one mistake a lot of people make is thinking of our minds and our bodies as only vaguely linked; they absolutely intertwine.
This is been a basic for decades. Hippy Guru thing
What is interesting is that Sci/Tech is creatively visualizing the concepts of Magick.
