Magick by using the evolution of the spirit

This can be done for purposes regarding one's own life. If the theories about the evolution of the spirit are true then it may be possible to create change in one's life just by thinking about conditions and trying to understand them. To better understand what that means, let's summarize spiritism in the sense of evolution of the spirit.

Spiritism says that every person comes to this life (reeincarnation) over and over to evolve and understand. This understanding covers everything in one's life. The conditions in which a person lives is determined by the terms according to his/her specific needs for evolution of his/her spirit. And when the person understands his/her lesson on that particular subject, conditions change.

So, for example, assume that you are in a relationship which goes really unhappy. If you take the time and meditate on your relationship with a question in mind such as "why, why on earth do I have to live through this" and if you can achieve to understand the message there, your relationship might change.

By saying "message" I don't mean a new agee approach. First of all, there is no single message in one's life span and there is no single aim of life, at least in my opinion. What I mean is a real advancement of your psyche. According to spiritism, you come across events where your spirit will be developed by them. If you try to speed up the process in which you get the hang of things a little faster, then your life will unfold towards better experiences. At least on those areas where you "suffer" now.

Since this work leads to a change in your environent and in events, people, etc. you are surrounded by, you can call this magick too.

Happy new year, by the way.

Improving your imagination

So you wanna be a magician? Then you should work on and study imagination in all aspects. Francis Bardon begins the education of magick in his famous book Initiation into Hermetics with imagination. Every cult, every magickal order have imagination at the core of their teaching even if they are not aware of the fact.

So, what can you do in order to develop your imagination and improve it. I assume that you have already read and tried many traditional ways of imagining things and events. I suggest you to use digital images and videos to enhance your imagination. Doesn't that sound authentic? Does it sound not old enough?

When I was studying Havass (islamic magickal system), I noticed something. When a new talisman or a magick square is going to be told, it reads "find a clean piece of paper". Now that was interesting. Why would I use a not-clean paper for any type of magick I want to operate on? Then it hit me. Those texts were written hundreds of years ago and finding a clean piece of paper was whether difficult or really expensive.

However, we live in the 21st century and we have access to many different tools in comparison to the past. We should use them. We should use any tool that could improve our imagination. You can find related images for your work on the net and you can look at them for the sake of imagination. If it is necessary, you can spend hours staring at a picture so that you can have all the feelings necessary to create the energy for your work.

I think you get the idea.
Here will be links to a set of articles that I find useful for magickal practice, tarot readings, psychic readings and alike.
