Answers to a Few Problems Newbies Have.

Answers to some newbie/kid problems.

Mythical creatures:
-Magic can not turn you into a vampire, a werewolf, a mermaid, or anything of the sort.
-Magic cannot do this because it can not make direct physical changes or change appearences, and because VAMPIRES DON'T EXIST.
-These creatures have never existed and never will.
-Psi-Vampirism is real, but it's a skill, not a race.
-It is never acceptable to go around saying you're a vampire, you either 1) sound like an idiot or 2) are a "poser."

The spells aren't working, why can't I do it?:
-Alot of newbies give up after one to ten tries of trying spells, too many do this.
-It takes time and practice to become good at magic.
-You DO NOT need magic in your family's history to do magic.
-You might be trying spells or rituals that are far more advanced then what you can handle.
-The natural order of things can and will make a spell or ritual fail as it sees fit.
-It doesn't matter what religion you are.
-All animals have a skill for that specific animal, cats are built to be able to land from long falls, monkeys can climb quickly, birds can fly, humans can control their environment to a certain point using their minds.

Astral Projection???:
-You cannot get lost in the astral plane, this question was started after the movie "Insidious" came out, in the movie a boy gets lost astral projecting, this cannot happen.
-If you die in the astral, you will just be snapped back to the physical plane, although you might be breathing heavy and sweating, you will be unharmed.
-You can find out how in many posts throughout the SoM website.

Is Realm Creation Real?:
-Yes, realm creation is real, it may be a little different then what you had in mind, but it's a fun and interesting thing to do and become a big part of our daily lives.
-Read my guide, "Realm Creation Guide" under astral projection in the forums.

Few things to note here:

1. Yes, In fact vampires do exist in modern society but not as you think it is. There are mainly 2 kinds of these "Vampires"

a. Sanguine Vampires: These are vampires who drink the blood of humans, not because they love the taste but because it is life force. Blood has life force for without blood we shall die, so they drink it to sustain themselves. They also feel very weak in the sunlight and are pale white (some of them). They do not have superhuman speed or strength. They are like us. People say that some Sanguines were born with "Caul" on their face.

b. the Psi vamp which you already explained.

Well, since science a medicine have not proved that vampires exist, and people who claim to be and drink blood still don't have a digestive system designed to process blood and can get health problems.

work on meditation, visualization and things like that first, then start with spells that arn't very big, or wont have a huge impact, and I write my own spells so I don't know which spells are good for you to start with. But, for example, start with a spell for one dollar before doing a spell for a million dollars, you need to build up your energy.

Sanguinerians are not real, period. The only humanoids that haven't gone extinct are humans, that's the end of it.

Something I'd like to add is another reason magic cannot turn you into a vampire is because magic cannot change your DNA. The idea that it can would be described as Magical Lamarckism. He was a French evolutionist that believed one could obtain genetic mutations or changes in your DNA through out your life, he was proven wrong by Darwin. Characteristic change in DNA through out your life can only be seen in cancer where something happens to mutate and confuse your cells, even then it is not extensively hereditary. This being said vampires do not exist as a race because it is genetically impossible to carry out reproduction of vampiric or sanguine DNA.

I don't think it always takes a lot of time to become good at magic, some people are just born with the knack for it like any other kind of art form. It's true, magic is not a genetically handed down practice, anyone is capable of learning. I do see a lot of beginners trying to get into topics too advanced for them like the all time favorite summoning demons and spirits, I think this is a big downfall for many beginners too since they most likely won't get anywhere. To be frank it's best to go into theory before practice, in other words study before you try any of it. The natural order deciding on the success of a spell is entirely up to a person's belief in magic what you said makes it sound like nature is a self aware entity in its own which is strictly part of certain beliefs. However I do agree that magic tends to work alongside nature or it is defined as nature working, spell that attempt to go against nature or natural law almost always fail. The way you worded it does kind of depend on what religion you associate with but the jest of it is true at least.

You can get lost, and I've been asked about this long before "Insidious" came out. Just because you can get lost doesn't mean you'll stay lost though, that's the point in keeping a bond sort of connection between your astral and physical bodies. You can't exactly die while astral projection but you can be disturbed on a metaphysical level causing possible complications with your chi and overall astral body. Some centering, grounding, and cleansing should clear it right up. Unharmed is an understatement, there are still repercussions.

@Shameless: I meant that the questions about getting lost exploded from a few people to alot of people after the movie came out, sorry, I was tired when I posted it.

there are people out there who have a desire to drink other people's blood, but they are considered to be insane.
