I made that emoticon a long time ago for a game that I was making. I find it hilarious to this day.
Now, for those curious about me, my name is Jimmy. I've been on this site for a long time, almost since it first appeared on the interwebs. I am currently eighteen and have been a practicioner for close to 7 years now. I would consider myself Eclectic, mainly studying Spiritual Satanism, Reiki, and Native American magicks. I will not tolerate any form of mail that involves and/or includes asking me to do a spell for you, or any type of supernatural creature, including but not limited to ; vampires , werewolves, and all other manner of fluff. If you are a semi intelligent human being, than I will be more than happy to talk to you. If you aren't so intelligent, I will be more than happy to point you in the direction of several resources if you wish to learn something about magick. I'd like to think I am a pretty easy going person most of the time. And no, I'm not looking for a relationship. That has passed a long time ago. Also, do not mistake my niceness for flirting. There is a very distinct line between the two. For those of you wishing to get started in magicks, I suggest you read what is below. I claim no credit for it, merely putting it here so you can see it. Its known as the basics, and I suggest you spend a fair amount of time on them before you even begin to look into more advanced magick things.
Also, my album is public. As time goes on, I will continue to fill it with various drawings and pictures. I am an aspiring artist and game developer, as well as a musician. So if any of that intrigues you, you are more than welcome to go peruse my album.
Meditation is one of the best ways to regulate your body; as it balances your emotions, hormones, blood pressure, thoughts and much more. In magic, meditation is considered an extremely important basic, as it is the foundation for many magical workings. There are an infinite number of ways to meditate which is useful because meditation can be customized for each individual. One technique is to just close your eyes, and take a deep breath. Although it seems very simple, it can do wonders in your life and magic workings.
Visualization is essentially creating an image in your mind much like a daydream. This technique is useful when doing your magical workings because if you can visualize the outcome of what you desire (say getting a good grade on a test) then you will have a higher chance of fulfilling that desire. (Getting an A+) To improve this skill, meditate regularly, and try to visual something you know well, such as a toy or jewelry. Form a mental image in your mind of the object, each time going further and further into detail. A popular technique by Laurie Cabot, is to visualize an apple. Begin by focusing on what the apple looks like (what color, shape, size?). When you have gotten a solid image in your mind (this may take a couple tries), try to reach out and feel the apple in your mind; what does it feel like? (Is it smooth, course, mushy, hard?) Next, begin to smell the apple; what does it smell like? Lastly, take a bite out of the apple, feel the juices running down your skin, hear the crunch as you bite into it, smell the sweet aroma, see the bite removed from the apple, and finally the taste. You may now finish your apple, as you enjoy the thought that you have successfully visualized it.
Grounding is an activity to balance your energy by removing excess, or replenishing, the energy in your body. Think of your body as a cup of water; as you do magical workings you drink/fill the cup. Grounding ensures that the water isn?t completely used or overflowing. To ground yourself, a good technique is to visualize your body as a tree; grow your roots deep into the ground and spread your leaves. As energy comes from both the ground and the sun, visualize it replenishing yourself and allowing you to grow.
Centering is , in my opinion, the second step to grounding. This activity allows you to take your personal energy and mold it into 1 constant flow of energy. Think of centering as bringing together many small streams to form a strong and powerful river. To center yourself, visualize a silhouette of your body, twisting and turning with energy. As you continue, visualize the energy being condensed into 1 place in your body (typically the navel). Then, whenever you need to draw from your power visualize the energy bursting out from where you stored it.
