Fundamentals of Magick
What is taught here are various techniques of magick for beginners. They have been developed and found to work by FireyOne. It is good to remember that complex does not always mean better. Magick is natural and simple and the techniques to develop abilities should be simple and natural as well. What is taught on this site is not only the basics of magick, but the basics of many things. For instance, they are the basics of psychic abilities, magick ability, developing your mystical sides and so on. Some of the techniques taught will include: Relaxation, Visualization, Moving Personal Energy, Charging, Shielding, etc.
|Magick is the art and practice of moving natural energies to effect needed or wanted change. Magick is natural, there is absolutely nothing supernatural about it. Magick has been used by the Native Americans, Aztecs, Incas, Celts, Greeks, Romans and many other cultures throughout the world and throughout time. I can't think of even one culture that does not have their own form of magick. Magick is done everytime you pray... everytime you wish for something. Magick can be done by anyone with an open mind and who takes the time to try it.|
and Elemental Magick
Creating A Shield:
To create a shield, relax, open the chakras, raise and center your energy. Then ground. Visualize very clearly a white protective energy surrounding you and your aura entirely in a sphere shape. Spend however long you need on this until you can actually 'feel' yourself being surrounded in this protective light. Know that nothing harmful can get through it after you have created the shield. After you have mastered this shield you can move on to other kinds of shields. You can add textures to your shields to give them certain properties. For instance, to create a shield that reflects all the harmful energies sent at you, you could visualize the shield as a mirror surrounding you completely. Then visualize it reflecting all unwanted energies away from you. Or for another kind of shield you could visualize yourself stepping into a suit of armor that protects you from all harm. Use your imagination! If you find your psychic senses are dulled or are shielded FROM sensing things you can do this: Visualize a shield and construct it. Visualize nothing unwanted being able to but you can freely sense and send things out from yourself from your shield.
Not only for Magick - this is an important practise in time like these ...
What is Chan?
Chan exists universally and eternally. There is no need for any teacher to transmit it; what is transmitted is just the method by which one can personally experience Chan. In China, the Chan school developed from Indian Dhyana Buddhism, which taught a methods of meditative concentration aimed at the attainment of an absorbed, concentrated state of mind. This school later spread to other countries from China, and is called Zen in Japan, Son in Korea, and Thien in Vietnam.
Chan starts with gaining thorough knowledge of one's own self. Through letting go of all attachments and giving rise to wisdom, our mind can regain its luminosity. We call this knowledge of the notion of self "enlightenment" or "seeing one's self-nature."
|This is the beginning of helping yourself to thoroughly solve real problems. In the end, you will discover that you as an individual, together with the whole of existence, are but one indivisible totality.|
Chan encompasses four key elements: faith, understanding, practice, and realization. Faith belongs to the realm of religion, understanding is philosophical, practice is belief put into action, and realization is enlightenment. Without faith, we cannot understand; without understanding, we cannot practice; and without practice, we cannot realize enlightenment. Together, these four concepts create the doorway we enter to attain wisdom.
