Power Over Life Death

A magician who perfectly masters the elements and the electromagnetic fluid also is master over life and death of every human being. But he will never dare to menace the lives of his fellow men, though he knows exactly how to induce a magical death. There would be a lot of possibilities of doing so, but I desist from quoting such methods in order not to lead the magician into temptation. According to the universal laws, a magician of illumined spirit and perfect mastery of occult faculties and...

Loading by Magic Formulas Mantrams Tantra c

This kind represents one of the greatest and most powerful loadings but it requires high knowledge and a lot of preparation that I will describe in my following two works concerning magic evocation and the practical Quabbalah. Therefore I shall restrict myself to a short remark only. The first kind of loading is realized by repeating a magic formula and the desired effect is accomplished with the help of an entity selected for this purpose. The loading by mantrams is done by imagining or...

Magic Loading of Talismans Amulets Gems

The belief in talismans, amulets and jewels goes back to time immemorial and has its origin in fetishism that is still widespread among primitive races. The belief in a talisman and similar things has survived from these earlier stages to the present day, but modified its character according to the modern style of life. What else but talismans are all the mascots, pendants, rings and brooches that are supposed to bring good luck Today it is birth-stones that are held in particularly high...

Step I

Let us now turn to the practical side of the initiation. We must always be aware of the fact that the body, soul and mind are to be trained simultaneously, for otherwise it would be impossible to gain and maintain the magic equipoise. In the theoretic part I already called attention to the dangers possibly rising from one-sided training. It is not advisable to hasten development, because everything needs time. Patience, perseverance and tenacity are fundamental conditions of the development....

Religion

The incipient magician will confess his faith to a universal religion. He will find out that every religion has good points as well as bad ones. He will therefore keep the best of it for himself and ignore the weak points, which does not necessarily mean that he must profess a religion, but he shall express awe to each for of worship, for each religion has its proper principle of God, whether the point in question be Christianity, Buddhism, Islam or any other kind of religion. Fundamentally he...

The Magic Mirror to Influence the Self or Other People

Any magic mirror can serve as an excellent help for self-influence, but the best result will be obtained with a mirror equipped with a fluid condenser. There are so many different opportunities of employing it that it is quite impossible to register all of them. Here I can quote only a few practical examples. Draw so much light from the universal ocean of light that you can feel yourself redhot like a sun. Impregnate this light with the concentration on a desire, wishing for instance that the...

Hypnosis

Another field very similar to telepathy and suggestion is that of hypnosis, by which a person is sent to sleep forcibly and deprived of the free will. From the magical point of view hypnosis is reprehensible and it would be better not to specialize in this line. This does not mean that the magician is not able to lull people to sleep. The practice is imaginably simple. The magician need only suspend the function of the spirit by means of his will or with the help of the electromagnetic fluid,...

Thought Reading

A lot of publicity has been made about the problem of thought-reading. This seems to be a matter of course for the magician and he regards it as a concomitant of inferior value for his mental development. Thought-reading can be performed by pictures, intuitions, inspirations, and so on, according to the mental attitude of the magician. It is not necessary to underline the fact that a subject's thoughts can be read not only if he is close by the magician, but also at a far distance, which is...

Magic Psychic Training VI

In Step V we learned how to project the elements outwards. Now we shall go farther and learn how to master the akasa principle with respect to the elements. It has been mentioned in the theoretical part that the elements originate in the akasa principle, by which they are dominated and kept in the correct balance. After a long time of exercising, a magician who has achieved good results with the elements will also be able to control the finest principle, that is the astral ether. The exercise...

The Mystery of Breathing

Breathing is to be given your very careful consideration. Normally each living creature is bound to breathe. There is no life at all without breathing. It is obvious that a magician ought to know more than the mere fact of inhaling oxygen and nitrogen which the lungs absorb and exhale as carbon dioxide and nitrogen. The lungs cannot exist without breathing and food. All we need for our life, and what preserves our life, to wit, breathing and food, is tetrapolar, four elements plus a fifth, the...

The Magic Mirror as a Projector of Powers Beings c

The magic mirror also can be used to condense all the forces of the mental and astral planes to such a degree that they can be perceived by persons who are not trained in magic at all. This is not a matter of mere imagination or suggestion, because the thoughts and entities condensed with the practices described here can be condensed in a mirror in such a manner that it is possible to take a photograph of them. Here are the instructions for the practice The surface of the mirror is loaded with...

The Magic Mirror as a Television

In our magic mirror we are able to observe occurrences or events that are happening to persons known or unknown, even at the greatest distances. Load the mirror with the akasa principle, induce a trance with akasa, and concentrate of the person whose actions you want to observe. Think of the magic mirror as being a big telescope through which you can see everything at the remotest distance. The magician will immediately see the person and the surroundings like a motion picture. At the outset...

Summary of Exercises of Step VIII

Practice of mental wandering c. visits to friends, relatives, etc. 3. Concentration disturbances as a compass of the magic equilibrium 4. The astral body and the light 5. Mastering of the electric and magnetic fluids 1. Magic influence through the elements c. fluid condensers for magic mirrors d. preparation of a magic mirror with the help of fluid condensers

Working in the Akasa

In the same way as the memory can be influenced and certain remembrances be wiped out with the help of akasa, the magician is able to obliterate not only certain ideas and recollections but also certain causes that are registered in the akasa and turn out as influences of the fate on himself or other people, provided he has the correct motivation. Supposing he wipes out a cause that the subject created himself, he has to establish another cause in place of the one he wiped out, which is...

A Diet

A reasonable line of life maintains the harmony of the elements in the body As soon as a disharmony in the effect of elements becomes manifest, the elements being extant in a weakened or a prevailing way, special measures have to be taken as far as food is concerned to carry the elements back to their normal course or at least to influence them favorably in this respect. Therefore the most varying diets are prescribed for specific cases. In times long passed, numerous observation led men to...

Magic Psychic Training IV

In this chapter we shall amplify the work concerning the elements. We have learned to take in the element by breathing through the lungs and pores, and to perceive it specific qualities in our whole body. Now we shall charge single parts of the body with any element we like, which can be executed in two different ways. The magician should manage both methods. The first one is as follows In the same way as described in Step III, through inhaling with lungs and pores, you are breathing the...

Loading with Willpower Imagination

This is the simplest and easiest method, the effect of which depends on the willpower and the imaginative faculty of the magician. Every talisman, amulet and pentacle, with the exception of paper and parchment amulets, has to be cleared from the fluid clinging to it before the magic loading can be performed. The best way to do so is with the help of the magic of water. Take a glass of fresh cold water and dip the talisman into it. While doing so, concentrate on the water taking away all evil...

The Magic Mirror as a Transit Gate to all Planes

When performing this experiment, take care that you are not disturbed by your surroundings. Sit comfortably in front of your mirror and load its surface with the akasa, which you suck into your body by lung and pore breathing. The loading of the mirror with the personal akasa can take place whether by your hands or directly via the solar plexus. Now forget all about your body and think of yourself as a spirit, able to adopt any shape and size. Now imagine your body becoming so small that it is...

Control of the Electric Fluid Inductive Method

This exercise can be performed sitting down or standing up, just as it is more convenient for the individual. Take up your usual asana, close your eyes, and think of your body as being hollow furthermore, imagine that you are in the centre of a fiery ball that includes the whole universe. You have got to imagine the fire element red hot and bright, similar to the sun. You will feel the warmth on the periphery of your own body automatically in this imagination, because you already learned about...

The Magic Mirror for Investigation of the Past Present Future

Working with the mirror, one of the most difficult tasks is the exact investigation of the past, present and future of other people. It is comprehensible that the magician can perceive his own past and present in the mirror similar to a motion picture but he will most certainly avoid doing so. Should he be so keen as to satisfy his curiosity to learn all about his future, it would not be difficult for him to concentrate on this problem and inquire into every detail. But there's the rub In the...

Loading by Mago Sexual Operations

There is still another kind of loading, a subject I shall deal with only briefly here. For ethic and moral reasons, I desist from describing the practice in detail. The meditating magician will find out all about this practice, but he too will desist from working with it, since in the meantime he got to know so many different possibilities of loading. Only a magician on a very high ethical level could dare make use of this practice, because all things are pure to the pure. In the hands of an...

Control of the Magnetic Fluid Deductive Method

The process concerning the control of the magnetic fluid is similar to the deductive method of handling the electric fluid, described in the foregoing exercise, with the difference that instead of the fire, the water element will play its part. Accumulate the water element dynamically in your body, which you imagine to be hollow. You may breath through the lungs or the pores or both together, or let imagination play its role. Although you will perceive the wetness and coolness during this...

Magic Psychic Training I 1 Introspection or Self Knowledge

In our own mansion, meaning our body and our soul, we must find our way about at every moment. Therefore our first task will be to know ourselves. Each initiation system, no matter which kind it may be, will put this condition in the first place. Without self-knowledge there will be no real development on a higher level. In the first days of psychic training, let us deal with the practical part of introspection or self-knowledge. Arrange for a magic diary and enter all the bad sides of your...

The Magic Mirror as a Transmitter Receiver

The mirror can be used fabulously for this purpose as well you can perform experiments of animating pictures and transferring sounds. Similarly to the transmitter and receiver of a radio, our mirror also can be used in this line. I will quote two practices briefly that the magician can execute without any effort at all, provided that he has followed me to this point step by step. The first practice refers to the reciprocal animation of thoughts or pictures between two equally skilled magicians....

Loading with Timed Accumulation of Vital Power Wish Impregnation

The talisman is to be freed from the fluid in the same manner as described in 1. If the point in question is a talisman that you want to use yourself, you will have to perform the accumulation of the vital power in your own body (See the instruction of Step III). If you loaded your body expansively with vital power, lead it via your right hand into your talisman and compress the accumulated vital power to such a degree that it fills the entire shape of the talisman, amulet or stone. While doing...

Levitation Phenomena

Levitation means the abolition of the law of gravitation. Based on the universal laws the magician has found out that the power of gravity depends on the magnetic attraction of the earth. The gravity of his own body can be abolished in two ways. Firstly, through constant loading or accumulations of the air element (Vaju tattwa), the primary quality of this element is realized to such a degree that a man feels light as a feather and can rise and float in the air like a balloon. The second method...

Phenomena of Nature

With the help of the elements and the electromagnetic fluid, the magician can produce the phenomena of nature on a large or small scale. He will, however, need more space in order to be able to project and condense the necessary powers. By the projection of the air element he can influence the movement of the air, the wind, or by projecting the water element he can make rain. He can conjure thunderstorms with the electromagnetic fluid by projecting electric and magnetic volts in the air, which...

Asceticism

From the remotest times, all religions, sects, turns of mind and training systems have regarded asceticism as a very important problem. Various systems of the Orient turned asceticism into fanaticism, causing great damage by exaggeration and wild excesses that were unnatural and unlawful. The mortification of the flesh, generally speaking, is just as one-sided as developing one part of the body only, neglecting all the other parts. If asceticism serves the human body, say in the pattern of a...

The Principle of Fire

As it has been said before, akasa or the etheric principle is the cause of the origin of the elements. According to the oriental scriptures, the first element born from akasa is believed to be Tejas, the principle of fire. This element as well as all the others manifest their influence not only in our roughly material plane but also in everything created. The basic qualities of the fiery principle are heat and expansion. In the beginning of all things created therefore must have been fire and...

Magical Physical Training IV

The exercises of the first step should have become a habit by now. Those of the second step have to be enforced and deepened according to time and opportunity. One ought to have the capacity of sticking firmly to any asceticism one has imposed upon oneself without having to fight temptations or even to succumb to any of them. The exercises of the third step are to be deepened as well. One has to manage the position of the body so far as to endure the asana-seat for hours without feeling the...

Exteriorization

The magician has learned in this course how to sever his mental and his astral body from the physical body, and the problem therefore does not represent anything new to him. What he ignores is the fact that he does not have to separate the whole mental or astral body while performing this experiment, but that he can exteriorize or disconnect single parts of the body. The mental and the astral body not being confined to time or space, the magician will be able to trans fer different parts of his...

Biomagnetism

Let us deal with another specific property of the vital energy that is of particular relevance for the magic work. As we have already seen, each object, each animal, each human being, each form of ideas can be charged with vital force and the corresponding desire of realization. The vital force, however, has the property of accepting any -- also strangers' -- ideas and feelings, influencing or combining them. The concentrated vital force would therefore soon mingle with other ideas, a fact that...

Magic Psychic Training X

In the theoretical part of this course I alluded to the notion of God, and the magician who has made appreciable progress in his development can start on the meditation of this concept of God. Before he begins to work through this last chapter of his development, he has to examine whether or not he is already mastering the psychic training of all the previous steps, whether he has accomplished the magic balance and ennobled his psychic personality to such a degree that the Godhead can live in...

Magic Mental Training X

Before the magician begins to follow the practice of the tenth and last step of this course, he may look back attentively and make sure that he achieved the positive realization of all he has been taught up to now. If that is not the case, he must try to make up for all he is still lacking and must go to any length for developing every faculty completely. Any kind of haste or hurry with respect to his development is useless and will work out awkwardly later in his magic task. To avoid...

Telepathy

The field of telepathy is akin to suggestion. Certainly it is a mere trifle for a magician to suggest his thoughts to any person. All he needs to consider is the fact that he has to transmit the thoughts not to the body or the soul but simply to the spirit of the subject. He imagines the subject's spirit, to which he transmits the thought, omitting the material and astral body. Here it is left entirely to the magician whether to suggest to the subject that it is his (the magician's) thought or...

Space Impregnation

Through pulmonary and pore breathing of your entire body, you inhale vital force, pressing it with all your imagination into your whole body so that it becomes as it were dynamically radiant. Your body is something like the radiant energy, an individual sun. With every inhalation you enforce the compressed vital power as well as the radiant energy, and fill the room you live in. With the aid of this radiant power, the room must be literally sunlit. With repeated and persistent exercise, it is...

Psychometry

Psychometry means the faculty to read the present time as well as the past and, if it should be necessary, the future too of any object whatever, investigating all the events related with this object at whatever period. This ability is a concomitant of developed astral senses and easy to manage if the magician has undergone all the practical training taught in this course, and if he has learned how to sue his astral senses in seeing, hearing and feeling. All he has to do is to take the object...

The Electric and Magnetic Fluids

According to the information given in the theoretical part, there are two kinds of fluids originating in the four elements, namely the electric and the magnetic fluid. The electric fluid comes from the fire principle, the magnetic one from the water principle. The air principle is the mediating element between the two. The earth element is bipolar, hence containing both fluids, and it is electromagnetic, electric in the centre and magnetic on the periphery. According to the aforesaid laws,...

The Magic Mirror as a Ray Emitter for Impregnation of Rooms Treatment of Sick People c

The magic mirror may be employed within this scope as well, and in the hands of a skilled magician it will represent an excellent help for his development. The practice of room-impregnation is as follows. When you are working in a room that you want to be influenced by the magic mirror for your own purposes only, you have to perform the loading via your own body. As far as loadings of the mirror for the benefit of other people are concerned, you have to draw the power directly from the universe...

Magical Animation of Pictures

The magical animation of pictures also belongs to the four methods concerning the creation of elementaries. In cults, the pictures, images of saints, statues and the like are very often told to emanate an exceedingly strong magic power producing miraculous effects on the bodies, spirits and souls of their worshippers. The blessed silence, calmness and the religious ambiance that meets visitors in churches and places of pilgrimage certainly is known to everybody, and there is no need to go into...

Magic Physical Training VIII

Provide the magician be perfect in all the stages of the magic training of the body, he will not require any special education in this line. I will therefore limit myself to giving some instructions and hints that may become useful in the following chapters. Subsequently there follows an influencing method through the elements, which the magician can use for his own self-influencing or to influence other people. Especially worthy of mention are the following four systems which may be practiced...

Impregnation of the Astral Body with the Four Fundamental Divine Qualities

When the magician has arrived at this stage of development, he will begin to express his concept of God in concrete ideas. The mystic, being trained in one side only, or a Yogi, etc., sees in his Deity nothing else but a mere aspect to which he renders worship and adoration. The truly wise adept, who always considers the four elements in his development, will represent the concept of God in four aspects according to the laws of the universe, namely, the omnipotence, corresponding to the fire...

Long Distance Impregnation of Rooms

Previously I discussed the impregnation of a room in which the magician himself happens to be, and I also recommended several implements such as the magic mirror combined with a fluid condenser. One fact I did not mention till now is that the magician also can impregnate a room at a distance. There are two ways to do so firstly the magician visits the room in his spirit or in his astral body, performing the desired impregnation there with the help of his imagination, using the same instructions...

Akasa or the Ethereal Principle

Several times while describing the elements I have said that they proceed from the ethereal principle. Accordingly, the ethereal principle is the ultimate, the supreme, the most powerful thing, something inconceivable, the ultimate cause of all things existing and created. To put it in a nutshell, it is the causal sphere. Therefore akasa is spaceless and timeless. It is the non-created, the incomprehensible, the indefinable. The various religions have given it the name of God. It is the fifth...

The Magic Mirror Representing a Link Between Living Deceased Persons

Supposing you wish to use the mirror to communicate with a friend or somebody else, or to give orders to a person to write to you or come to see you, proceed as follows Load the surface of the mirror with akasa, meditating on the fact that everywhere between yourself, the mirror and your friend there is akasa, that neither time nor space exists anymore. Hold onto this sensation in deep meditation, and at the same time wish to see your friend in the mirror. A few moments later you will see the...

Magic Mental Training V

With all the previous exercises the scholar has achieved a certain capacity of concentration and he has learned to transform his consciousness at will or to adjust it to any form, and he will be able to see father and deeper. The instructions of the fifth step shall show us how to transplant the consciousness into the centre of any form beginning with the tiniest atom to the highest universe. In this manner, the scholar not only learns to understand and interpret every form from its centre, he...

Deliberate Creation of Elementals

In contrast to thoughts living in their forms in the mental or spiritual sphere, the elementals are entities with a certain degree of intelligence deliberately created by a magician. Such elementals are capable of fulfiling certain tasks on the mental plane and obviously they may be looked at as obedient servants of the magician according to the purpose he aims at. Through the creation of elementals of the so-called elemental magic type, the magician can accomplish everything on the mental...

Magic Physical Training VII

If the magician is able to manage the projection of elements to the outside so that he knows how to project any element he chooses out of himself or directly from the universe, he will e able to create elementaries for his own and other people's profit too. He will succeed in creating beings that will be his faithful servants not only on the mental level but on the astral and material one as well, according to his producing or condensing these beings in a mental, astral or material way. I have...

Practices with Elements

A great number of possibilities are offered to a magician who wishes to specialize more particularly in the use of the elements, provided he has condensed or materialized the element with which he is working in such a manner that the elemental power has become a real physical power. Being perfect in doing so, he can, through condensation of the earth element in his body, produce such an invulnerability of his body that it resembles that shown by Indian fakirs in their performances. He is able...

Loading with Electric or Magnetic Fluid

One of the most powerful loadings consists in using the electric or magnetic fluid. When the talisman is supposed to protect something, to screen it, to irradiate it or to develop any kind of activity, one will mainly use the electric fluid, but if it is to produce an attractive power, to bring about sympathy, luck or success, the magnetic fluid will be employed. The manner of loading is exactly the same as previously described, but if the point is a talisman for personal purposes, the...

Magic of Becoming Invisible

In many fairy tales the story goes that a sorcerer has made himself invisible, or that there is a peculiar ring that makes people invisible if they twist it round their finger. Many books describe talismans and gems granting the bearer the gift of invisibility and giving instructions in this line too. But nothing of this kind is reliable nor of any use for real practice. On the other hand, based on the universal laws and on what we have learned up to now, we shall try to prove that making...

The Astral Plane

The astral plane, often designated as the fourth dimension, has not been created out of the four elements, but it is a density-degree of the akasa principle, consequently of all that up to now, I the material world occurred, is actually occurring and will occur, and has its origin, regulation and existence. As said before, akasa in its most subtle form is the ether, well known to all of us, in which, amongst other vibrations, electric as well as magnetic ones are propagating. Consequently this...

The Roughly Material Plane or the Material World

In this chapter I will not describe the roughly material world, the kingdoms of minerals, vegetables and animals, nor will I deal with the physical processes in nature, because everybody has already learned at school that there are such things as the north and south poles, how rain originates, how storms are brought about, etc. The incipient adept might not be so very interested in these occurrences, but he will rather endeavour to know all about the material world by means of the elements and...

Union With God Magician

Since the remotest times, Mankind has always believed in something beyond human understanding, something transcendental that he idolized no matter whether there was question of personified or unpersonified conceptions of God. Anything man was unable to understand or to comprehend was imputed to the powers above such as his intuitive virtue admitted them. In this way, all the deities of mankind, good and evil ones (demons) have been born. As time went on, gods, angels, demiurges, demons and...

Loading with an Electromagnetic Volt

To mitigate karmic influences, to be protected against influences of other spheres and to turn fate according to one's desire, a talisman is loaded for one's own or for other people's purposes with a magic volt. This kind of loading is called volting and represents the strictest imitation of the akasa principle, and only a magician aiming at the highest target, the union with God, should use this kind of loading not to burden himself with an interference in akasa. As I mentioned repeatedly...

Realization of a Desire with Electromagnetic Volts in Akasa

I have described the production of a volt by means of the electromagnetic fluid in the chapter referring to loading a talisman. The process is the same here except that the electromagnetic ball has to be bigger for a volt in the akasa. The practice is as follows Accumulate the electric fluid in the right half of your body with all the strength you can afford, and project it through the palm of the right hand to the outside, forming the electric fluid into a ball suspended in the air with your...

Magic Mental Training VII

In Step VI the scholar learned to become conscious of the own spirit, to act deliberately in the body as a spirit and also to use his senses consciously. In this stage he will consciously pursue the properties of the spirit or of the mental body, and use them as well. Here, of course, just like anywhere else, the analogy of the elements is to be considered. It has been mentioned before that the fire element can be transformed into light and conversely. Without light there would never be any...

Magic Mental Training IX

In the chapter referring to the magic psychic training (Step VII), I have already clearly dealt with the problem of clairvoyance. In this step I want to examine it closely once more. The various instructions that have been published to date for the attainment of this faculty did not bring about the desired success in anyone. Even people who are especially gifted in the mediumistic line have only attained a partial success that is getting lost sooner or later. But people like these are very...

Practice of Clairvoyance with Magic Mirrors

There are two kinds of magic mirrors 1. The optic mirrors made from flat or concave glass and covered on one side with silver amalgam or black lacquer. As for the concave mirror, the outside is lacquered and the concave inside part will be shiny. Crystal balls also belong to the magic mirrors, and so do the flat or concave metal mirrors, the surface of which has been provided with a coloured or black liquid. The surface of a pool also can serve as an optic mirror. To the second kind of magic...

Treatment of Sick People with Electromagnetic Fluid

It is a beautiful and sacred work to help the suffering mankind. The magician is able to do miracles as far as the treatment of the sick is concerned, just as so many saints did in the past and are still doing in the present time. Not one of the lay practitioners, magnetizers or healing mediums will ever understand to release the dynamic power corresponding to the primary principles in the same marvellous way as the magician does. The presupposition here, of course, is that the magician knows...

Step IV

Before describing the difficult exercises of the following step, I wish to point out again that the scholar is not allowed to hurry in his development. He ought to take sufficient time for this purpose of he wants to achieve a real success on the road to magic. He must be absolutely firm in all the exercises of the previous steps before turning to the following ones. I shall describe here how to transplant your consciousness outwards. We must understand how to transplant our consciousness...

Magic Psychic Training VIII 1 The Great Moment of

He who has arrived at this point in his development has to consider the plastical kind of thinking very carefully. The concentration power promoted by many years of experiments is producing very impressive pictures in the akasa by plastical thinking, pictures that are animated to a high extent and therefore seek to be realized. Hence one should always foster pure and noble thoughts and endeavour to transmute passions into good qualities. By now the magician's should be ennobled to such a degree...

Brahma Shakti

He who knows other systems of initiation will find a certain parallel with my system since all paths leading to truth must be the same. Let me mention here the Indian Yoga system concerning the snake power that is in accordance with the systems of the Egyptian mysteries I have quoted. In Kundalini yoga the scholar is exhorted to meditate on the Muladhara centre, the seat of which is the coccyx, and to perform Pranayama exercises there. If we look closely at the symbolism of the Muladhara chakra...

Magical Physical Training V

In this step I shall quote some exercises that render possible a deliberate passive communication with the invisible ones from a magical point of view. In a certain way the methods resemble the spiritualistic ones, but the magician will soon notice that he is not training himself to become a person without any will of his own, called a medium by the spiritualists. The magician may not become a plaything of uncontrollable powers on the contrary, he directs his powers consciously and also learns...

Magic Mental Training VI

In this Step we are faced with the meditation on the spirit. I have already been talking in detail about the mental sphere and the mental body, hence the spirit, in the theoretical part of this book. Now it is worthwhile to look at the functions of the spirit with respect to the four elements, differentiating these functions, which can be achieved by special meditation. The properties of the spirit in conformity with the four elements are as follows the will is subject to the fire principle,...

Mass Hypnosis of the Fakirs

The mass-hypnosis induced by Indian fakirs and jugglers that meets with so many admirers is no problem at all to the magician. The fakirs engaged in these performances generally do not know themselves how such phenomena are brought about, their secret being a matter of tradition handed down from one generation to the next. Supposing a certain spot or room is loaded with the akasa principle, all the bystanders are likewise pervaded by the akasa too, and this principle will prevail in all of...

Development of the Astral Clairfeeling Clairsentience

Before passing on to the development of the astral clairfeeling, let us take up our magical diary and transfer ourselves to the time when we were engaged thoroughly with the introspection of the various good and bad qualities. According to the magic mirror we could establish then, which of the qualities corresponding to the element in question were predominant in our mind. How important introspection was indeed then is clearly shown by the fact that just this preponderance of the element...

The female on the left side and the male on the right side are the plus positive and the minus negative in every human being. In their middle is seen a hermaphrodite, a creature personifying the male and female combined in one as the sign of concinnity between the male and female principle The electrical and magnetical fluids...

Conscious Separation of the Astral Body from the Physical Body

In this chapter the magician will learn how to separate his astral body from his physical body by means of conscious training, and how to get to places he wants, not only with his spirit but also with this soul, to places he wants to visit in the shape of his astral body. As we shall see, the emission of the astral body is different from mental wandering or the state of trance caused by akasa. The state during which the mental and astral bodies are separated from the physical body is called...

Magic Psychic Training VII

A very particular topic we shall deal with in this Step concerns the development of the astral senses with regard to the elements. The magician's astral senses have been trained and developed in any case in the course of all the preceding exercises nevertheless there is need of an extraordinary drill in cases of poor abilities for one or the other faculty, because every human being has different talents.

The Magic Mirror to Contact Powers Entities c

I will describe this method too in my second book, The Practice of Magical Evocation. At this point, let me remark only for the sake of curiosity as follows Supposing the magician loads his mirror with akasa, imaginatively drawing his sign on the surface with the element analogous to the entity, his character and his symbol, he is able to come in close contact with this respective being of he pronounces the name of the entity according to the universal laws of Quabbalah .

The Great Secret of the Tetragrammaton or the Quabbalistical YodHeVauHe

Device That which is above is also that which is below Hermes Trismegistus 1. About the Elements Everything that has been created, the macrocosm as well as the microcosm, consequently the big and the small world have been achieved by the effect of the elements. For this reason, right from the beginning of the initiation, I shall attend to these powers and underline their deep and manifold significance in particular. In the occult literature very little has been said about the powers of the...

The Magical Development of the Astral Clairaudience

This development is very much in line with the one of clairvoyance. The faculty of the astral clairaudience is based on the fact that one is able to hear voices even at the remotest distance and, at the same time, to understand the language of all beings. At the beginning this faculty manifests itself in thinking aloud, coming from the inside, whether from the heart region or from the solar plexus. After a long spell of exercising, the astral clairvoyance will develop to such a perfection that...

The Mental Plane

As the body ahs its earthly plane, and the astral body or the soul owns the astral plane, the spirit too has its own plane, the so-called mental plane or mental sphere. This is the mental sphere with all its virtues. Both these spheres, the material as well as the astral one have been born from the akasa or original principle of the respective sphere, through the four elements, and also the mental sphere is built upon the same foundation, and therefore likewise a product of the akasa principle...

Preparation of Magic Mirrors

Two kinds of magic mirrors exist the concave mirror and the flat mirror. Normal mirrors are suitable for both kinds, which must be spread with silver-amalgam or black lacquer, or covered with a liquid or a solid fluid condenser. For our magic purpose the ones mentioned before are of special value, and I will describe the production of these mirrors on the basis of some examples. 1. For the magic mirrors produced in the simplest way, with the help of a condenser, the surface of any mirror or of...

The Fluid Condensers

Any object can be influenced by any fluid, regardless of being loaded electrically, magnetically, with elements or akasa, through the aid of imagination and the will. But according to the laws of analogy and by experience, it has been found out that not each object and not each kind of liquid is suitable to retain an accumulated power for a long time or to accumulate it at all. Similar to the fact that electricity, magnetism and heat have good and bad conductors, the higher powers offer the...

Magic Mental Training III

In the second grade course, we have learned to practice sensorial concentration by training each sense. On this step, we shall widen our concentration power, expanding from one sense to two or three senses at once. I shall quote some examples, with the help of which the skilled student will be able to arrange his own sphere of action. Imagine plastically a clock hanging on the wall with its pendulum swinging to and fro. Your imagination must be so perfect and so constructive as if it were...

Conscious Reception of Food

What has been said about breathing applies in the same way to taking nourishment. Here also the same elemental processes are going on as they happened to in the air being inhaled, but the effect of the elements is stronger and more material. Desires impressed on food have a considerable influence on the material plane, where they are exposed to the most material emanations of the elements. Therefore the magician will do well to consider this aspect if he wants to achieve anything concerning his...

Preparation of the Simple Fluid Condenser

Take a handful of chamomile flowers, put them in a pot, cover them with water, and boil for about 20 minutes. Let cool with the lid on the pot, then strain the decoction. Boil the filtered decoction to about 50 millilitres. Let cool and mix it with an equal volume of alcohol for better preservation . Add 10 drops of gold tincture.

Magic Mental Training II

On the first step of our magical mental training, we have learned how to control and master our thoughts. Now let us go on to teach you how to raise the capacity of mental concentration in order to strengthen the willpower. Put some objects in front of you, say, a knife, a fork, a pencil, and a box of matches, and fix your eyes on these objects for a while. Try to remember their shapes and colours exactly. Then close your eyes and endeavour to imagine a certain object plastically, in exactly...

The Soul or the Astral Body

Through subtler vibrations of the elements, through the electric and the magnetic fluid of their polarity, the man proper, the soul has proceeded from the akasa principle or the finer etheric vibrations. In the same way as the elements are functioning in the material body, the soul or the so-called astral body will behave. The four-pole magnet, with its specific qualities, connects or amalgamates the soul with the body. This amalgamation takes place, with analogy to the body, by the...

Preparation of a Solid Fluid Condenser

Since in the next step I am going to describe the genuine mirror magic, the practical handling of the magic mirror, I shall teach the magician how to construct a magic mirror by himself. To manage this, he needs a sold fluid condenser that consists of seven metals. These are The different parts are by volume, not weight. All ingredients must be pulverized. The metals can be filed. Put all the ingredients together and mix well to obtain a real solid fluid condenser. The Electrum Magicum of the...

The Principle of Earth

It has been said of the principle of air that it does not represent an element proper and this affirmation goes for the principle of earth likewise. Now this means that out of the interaction of the three foresaid elements the earthy principle has been born as the last element which by its specific quality, the solidification involves all the three elements. It is this quality in particular which has given a concrete shape to the three aforesaid elements. But at the same time the action of the...

Magic Physical Training VI

In this Step any special training of the body is no longer necessary, but we shall practically use all the occult powers that the scholar has obtained in the course of the exercises, provided he followed all of the methods scrupulously and the practices really became habits. The scholar can of course deepen the exercises to obtain a better success. It is impossible to describe the entire practice of magic that a scholar could master eventually, because it would require another volume. I will...

The Act of Creation

There are four fundamental methods devised for the creation act of elementary 1. The projection of one element into a ready form, no matter whether the point in question be a mental, astral or a material form. 2. The projection of several elements into a ready form, which may be a mental, astral or material form. 3. The projection of one element without any direct form, which will be produced by the element in question. 4. The projection of several elements, which will produce their form...

Autosuggestion or the Secret of Subconscious

Before proceeding to describe the exercises of the second step, let me explain the secret of the subconscious and its practical consequences. In the same way as normal consciousness has its seat in the soul, and is activated by the cerebrum in the body, consequently the head, subconsciousness is a property of the soul, residing in the cerebellum, i.e., the back part of the head. With respect to the magical practice, let us deal with the study of the psychological function of the cerebellum,...

The Magic of Water

Water plays one of the most important parts, not only in daily life, being absolutely indispensable for drinking, preparing food, washing, producing steam in factories, etc., but also in our magic development the water element may prove to be a great factor. As we have already stated in the theoretical par, the watery element rules magnetism or the attractive force, and it is just this property that we shall utilize in the development of our faculties. All the books dealing with the animal...
