This technique is designed to draw upon Luna energy, or astral energy, with which to empower a spell or work Magick. It can also be used for psychic development and meditation. In Strega practice, Drawing down the Moon is not the same thing as invoking the goddess.When we invoke the Goddess upon the High Priestess, we refer to it as "Calling down the Goddess". The first act is connecting with the Moon, while the second act is connecting with the Goddess. The Moon and the Goddess are not the same thing, though admittedly they are difficult to separate.

Technique I: Drawing Down the Moon

Sit quietly and visualize the Full Moon above you. Mentally

bring the Moon

down to each of your body centers, visualizing each one glowing

with the

Moons light. Concentrate on each center for at least a min-ute

before moving

on to the next.

Technique II: Drawing and Raising Power

Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and imagine a white sphere of

light about

5 inches above your head. Imagine it flowing down through your

head, neck,

shoulders, chest, arms, and so on. Let this energy flow through

every inch

of you. Let it completely saturate the inside and cover the

outside. Imagine

your entire being is glowing. At this point you are in touch

with power, and

you may proceed with healing or other works of Magick.

Technique III: Grounding Exercise

There are times when it is necessary to drain off excess energy

from ritual

or Magickal work, and to regain a sense of balance. Sit

directly upon the

bare earth with you legs folded in front of you, and the palm

of your hands

pressed down upon the ground. Imagine your arms to be hollow (

like two

hoses) and mentally pour the excess/unwanted energy out into

the soil.Slow,

deep breathing is helpful in

this technique. Once you feel the energy is drained, then

quickly get up and

leave the area. It is best not to return there for a few hours.

The earth

will neutralize the energy, and the area will be as it was

before you

employed it.

Technique IV: Raising an energy Sphere

This is a basic exercise for raising personal power. It will be


foundation for works of healing, charging, and Magick. To raise

a sphere of

power place your hands in front of you, about 6 inches apart

(palms facing

each other), and begin to move them slowly back and fourth in

front of you

(like playing the accordion). Experience the sensations of

warmth, pressure,

and magnetism. Once a sphere of power has been established, you

can pass a

mental sigil into it. Or project a thought form, thereby giving

the sphere

its purpose. Then mentally visualize the sphere entering the

object that you

wish to charge. To increase this energy, use your concentration


imagination. You can visualize a glowing force of power. Do not

allow your

hands to touch while performing this exercise. Once you have


this method,then begin putting your hand around various objects

and feeling

their energy fields. Soon you will discover many other uses for

this basic
