what do you mean energy concept? [detail please]
energy is all around us, it is what magic uses. we need to charge energy before using a spell so we may direct it in the desired way. think of energy like air, you can't see it but you know it's all around you. you may not be able to make air [wind] blow on a hot day, but you can use a fan to make it. magic and energy are the same, we use magic to work to our advantage, but we need to be productive in order for it to work. the main reason spells fail is because you didn't charge enough energy. you can meditate and visualize it entering your body, you can jump, dance, since, drum, run, whatever as long as you feel energized. then you cast the spell visualizing the energy leaving your body and entering the object, then you visualize the spell working to achieve your goal. after the spell is cast, you ground the energy [keeping it inside is bad] by stoming youe foot, lying down, slapping the ground, or just visualizng it leaving your body and entering the ground.
Energy is the lifeforce that is all around us. All and everything is composed of it. Even inanimate objects are vibrating with energy, just extremely slowly to the point where we cannot see it with our physical eyes. This concept of energy is usually backed up and researched scientifically in areas like quantum theory.
Energy is what practitioners use in their spells, it is in everything and most importantly; us! That is how we are able to direct it, 'label' it, and will it to go to work for us. In whatever fashion the spell or ritual calls for. When the energy is considered to be 'needed' is the score you must settle for yourself, and your own morales.
The energy I speak of can be witnessed very clearly, but most easily in the dream or out-of-body state. In OoBE's (out of body experiences) people report seeing things glow with color, and the body that they left is usually grey. . .why?: Because our 'spirit', 'soul', 'energy' (whatever you prefer to call it) left our body, and continued to travel throughout the world in the spiritual body.
It is such a powerful force, and we know so little about it as humans it is extremely difficult to articulate a concrete explanation for it. We can only paint pictures for ourselves and others. But most importantly, experience this energy for ourselves.
How do you use or "direct" it.
It always says when I look at the spells to direct your energy into the object being used for the spell. In newbie central it says we can gain energy by doing certain spells but what spells?
