Nerd Magick?
By:
Post # 1
Ok,let me start by telling everyone... that I am a nerd.

Last night, while i was casting my circle to try and meditate. I was thinking Mother Ocean/goddess and i found myself saying instead Elune or Eywa(i think that is misspelled).

Here is the question... i know "Avatar" and "WOW" is fake. But can you incorperate Nerd ideas into magic or no? Just curious, cause I find myself doing it every once in a while. Like I said, I am a major nerd. Do i need to stop using sci-fi references, or because it is something that i do all the time (outside of magick too) I can welcome this openly?

thank you,

YES!!! finally someone will understand my mentality about shielding.

I am an empath. As an empath, I find that staying heavily shielded interferes with my ability to interact with people.

However...

When I feel as though I am under some kind of psychic attack, I have a very strong shield. The EXACT sound bite that goes through my mind whenever I put up this Ubershield is Commander William Riker's voice saying "SHIELDS UP, RED ALERT!!!"

So yes, you can incorporate nerd mentality in many ways.

Another way I use my nerdishness is with healing. I heal differently from most people. Ordinary energy healing involves using a certain color of energy to go in and "fix" the problem, or using energy manipulation to pull out the pain energy.

What I do is a little different. I research. If I know what the problem is, I go out and read about what causes that problem. Then I use visualization to picture the person's body and I try to see the problem in progress. Once I can see it, I can use energy to correct the situation.

I've been told it works much better than normal healing.

There you go, that's just two examples...I know I could think of more given time.

It's normal to associate real magic with "fake" stuff, you just have to use your nerd brain to see past the obvious. Your subconscious recognizes the patterns and is helping you to associate what you want to know/do with the information/insight given to you. Just keep learning, filter out the outrageous with that beautiful nerd brain of yours and you will do fine, Promise, :D

Like a lot of things in magick it really does depend on who you ask. Certainly some would say you can't worship Eywa because she was made up a few years ago for a movie - there is no Eywa entity out there like there might be an actual Anubis or Zeus. Others, Chaotes in particular, will say it doesn't matter so long as you're able to believe it's real long enough to do ritual. Some will meet in the middle and say that Eywa is just a new name and face for an ancient Earth Mother who has equivalent in many pantheons.

If you're able and willing to work with the earth via the manufactured mythos of Avatar, go for it. I wouldn't really advise describing it that way to others since it'll give the wrong impression of magick, but go crazy with it on your own.

Look into chaos magick, I'm sure you will thrive in it. Just make sure your skew on the spiritual based off of fiction doesn't alter your common sense on what is physically possible/capable of being manifested. We may all want to throw a fire ball at the behind of someone pushing our buttons, but magick doesn't manifest like that.

its wild.
they believe that every archtype, god or goddesses are a manifestion of our selves and whatever we want to manifest..
like invoking joy, love , anger , hate etc etc..

I didn't realize that this would fall under Chaos Magic. And I know I can't throw a fire ball at annoying people, or fly... as much as I may want to. Someone here is an Oblivion player, sweet! So it is totally cool to use the names, as long as i know where they came from and understand the story is fake (though very cool)? And I am so psyched to see I am not the only one who does this.

Myabe it is because I am such a nerd, the names sound better/comfortable to me. And I am able to realax a little more. Holy poop on a stick (< i think this line was in south park...?)i am a major nerd, LOL, LOL.

As already suggested, Chaos magick is something you should look into.
