sprints” is the term I use to describe this exercise which involves
intense focus for short periods of time. It is used for increasing
detail and focus in the astral and during spirit communication.
This exercise involves no actual magic and therefore does not require
Identify some objects around you to practice on.
begin with choose very simple objects like an apple, cigarette, or
empty jar. Later on choose more and more complex objects such as
bicycles, computers, an unlocked cellphone, animals, and humans.
Try to clearly remember one of the objects. Spend as much time as you
like filling in your memory with details. Sketching an object in
detail is a great way to do this.
to remember all aspects of the object, such as detail, texture, size,
and shape. Sketching is a useful tool because then you can literally
just compare your version to reality.
a challenge later on, begin limiting this remembering time. First
start timing how long this usually takes, then taking 5 or 10 seconds
off that time.
you choose not to sketch, try remembering all
details of the object including if applicable taste, scent, what it
feels like to touch, etc.
When you are ready, look at the real object and fill in all the gaps
in your memory. Focus intensely on the object and memorize every
this stage, to make your exercise the most efficient learning
exercise possible, analyze what went down. What parts of objects do
you usually forget? Detail? Form? Do you struggle more with
mechanical objects or organic objects? Paying attention to your own
memories will help you learn what areas to focus in.
very common inclusion in this exercise is to limit the viewing
portion to a set amount of time, such as 30, 15, or 10 seconds. I
have much more fun spending 1-3 minutes focusing on an object and
studying it, so do not feel the need to limit yourself to short
periods of time. However if you are looking for something more
advanced you might like it!
Set the object aside and once again try to clearly remember/sketch
it. See how much more accurately your drawing/memory has improved.
is the main portion of the exercise, and the one where you can gauge
your improvement. It doesn’t matter how clearly you remember an
object the first time you drew it – what matters is how much you
improved after a possibly
limited viewing of an object.
this exercise with one or two objects around you, whenever you are
bored. You can do this exercise any time you like! If you do not have
a sketchpad ready, just try to use pure visualization and focus in
Astral projection is a spiritual, almost trance-like, state of meditation where you guide your astral body (sort of in between your physical body and your spiritual self) lifts out of your physical body. It allows you to travel through space and time, see spirits, meet up with other projectors, and even enter into people’s dreams to contact them.
It can also be dangerous if you don’t ask your guide to help protect you, or you don’t shield yourself. Here is a post I’ve made on shielding.
Below is one possible and usually effective way to projecting. It takes practice, like all meditation, so just keep trying if it doesn’t work! Or intuitively modify the method.
Choose the time best for you: Usually the morning or after a nap is the most effective, because you can wake up your mind, but your body has less sensation and is therefore easier to leave. This is something that will be different for everyone, so figure out what works for you!
Lie down in a quiet space: Make sure no one with interrupt you (such interruption will ground you right back to the physical plane). Darken the room so your eyes aren’t distracted with bright lights. Be relaxed and comfortable, trying to minimize physical sensation. Also, have a blanket over yourself so you don’t get cold. Even on a warm day this might be needed.
Shield yourself: The link is above in the description on how to. I would ward your astral body and physical body with a white light, perhaps using the blanket and imagining that it is protecting your body with light. Worst case scenario would be for a negative spirit to use your body when you leave it to project. Also ask your guide(s), even if you don’t know their names, to protect you with pure intentions and from all negativity.
Relax your body: Start by focusing on your breathing, then move through your muscle groups and imagine each place of tension disappearing. Sometime a healing light, and imagining that, will help. You can work up or down on your body. Just relax as best you know how. Breathe away any thoughts too. Notice them, then just let them go with an exhale. A few minutes of this will clear your mind. But, it is natural for some thoughts to stay, and that’s okay! It won’t stop you from projecting, it just means that you’re human.
Let your mind wander and focus on a single points in your body: A small point, like your hand, heart, a toe, etc. Focus on this one point and let the rest of your body naturally fall into a sleep like state.
Start to visualize your body and feel it’s presence: It’s possible to see or imagine yourself looking different than your physical self at this point. Just accept what you feel and look like.
Flex your body parts mentally: This means that you don’t move any part of your body, but you image it moving until you can feel it vividly. This is your astral body moving. Slowly “move” more parts of your body.
Enter your resonation/vibrational state: All spirits, atoms, particles, energies, etc vibrate with certain frequencies. Start to pay attention to your astral self and you’ll probably, by this point, be feeling a subtle vibration. Let it build until it’s incredibly powerful. If you don’t feel the vibration yet, then continue the above step until you do. Audio and visual hallucinations are common here, like extremely loud sounds or patterns that your eyes are seeing. These aren’t harmful in any way. The most difficult part of the vibration is combating fear. It is overwhelming, especially the first time, because you are transcending the physical plane. Just relax into it and let it flow over you. It will not harm you.
Leave your body: Use your mind to lift out of your body, using the vibration to increase the ability to do so. Anyone can do this, but you need to trust yourself. Don’t allow yourself to doubt your ability, just have faith even for a few moments that you can leave your body, visualize it, then look back at your physical body once you are out of it. You can practice by just lifting a leg or arm out of your body first. Don’t expect a full projection on your first try! Just practice what it feels like until you understand your own astral self and how to have it leave your body, even if just in parts.
Explore: Be careful and take a guide with you. You can go anywhere now, besides some “restricted sections” (like “Heaven,” other people’s Akashic records, the Tree of Life, etc). If you ever feel threatened then just follow a silver cord back to your body. It should be connected to you around stomach. It is always there as soon as you focus on it. You can access your Akashic records, meet up with spirits or other projectors, go back in time (like literally see historical or future events), or interact in a plane you design for yourself, like a sanctum or astral altar.
Return to your body: Just imagine yourself going back and you will. You can also let the silver cord pull you or your guides guide you back into your body. If you see your physical self, then just align yourself and fall back into your body. Then slowly wiggle toes and fingers until sensation comes back. Don’t get up until you feel fully present, because you could be dizzy or lightheaded.

Hello lovelies! Been awhile, I wanted to give you guys this recipe/spell I created for a friend to enhance her dream memory! I know a lot of people struggle with remembering dreams, and that’s ok! I am here to try and help!
You will need some fabric and a sewing kit for starters!
-Sandalwood Powder: Visionary Properties
-Peppermint: Psychic awareness and Intuition
-Hawthorne Berries: Protection of witches
-Blood Salt: To protect yourself, and have the ability to defend yourself from any negativity that may try and harm you in these dreams.
-Purple, purple, purple!: Add some purple yarn, tissue paper, or fabric on the inside to help with opening your third eye (Purple is most commonly associated with your third eye, I’ve learned:)
-Amethyst: Once again, to help with your third eye and visionary properties beyond our realm/spirit work. (If you are hoping for channeling, I would substitute amethyst with a piece of fluorite…but that’s just me:)
-Sigil(s): I created a personal sigil for this friend, stemming from, “I will remember my dreams”. I find it stronger to make your own personal sigil when making these pillows for your self.
-Sage: I always add sage for positivity, cleansing, and protection.
The pillow doesn’t have to be huge, the ones we make are relatively small, maybe 2x2 in (After sewn). I start off by folding the fabric in half, and I sew along two sides only, while the fabric is inside out (The pattern that you want on the outside needs to be on the inside so you can create a clean seam). Once both sides are done, I turn it back so the pattern or color is on the outside (I recommend purple) and start stuffing! I go in this order,
If you don’t have some of these items, feel free to substitute them with items you have that you personally feel would work best for you. Our correspondences may be different, and one thing that may work for me, may not work for you. Mix it up!
As I sew the pillow shut, I say the following
“May _________ see what they need to see
May _________ know what they need to know
May _________ fight what they need to fight
May this help ___________’s senses grow”
If this is for you, replace the spaces with I, and the last with my.
Then to finish off, I recommend smudging these pillows with Cedar or sage. Personally, I use this sage spray a friend of mine got me, and it does wonders!
I charge these pillows by simply sleeping with them the very first night I create them. I put them under my pillow right away and then that’s that! Its good to smudge them beforehand, or after if you have any negative dreams.
As far as the sigil goes, I do not charge the sigil in the pillow. I draw the sigil first, and put the original in a bowl with some quartz points and selenite, then I draw a second one and put that in the pillow right away. I leave the original sigil in the bowl overnight, and then add it to my collection the next day:)
I hope you all enjoyed this, please reblog to share with others, and follow/like if you wanna see more! :)
In-depth psychic communication guide for spirit contact
guide is for adults only.
am an animist so I believe nearly everything has a spirit. Your house
has a spirit; so do your pets, and your plants. The well-used family
pots and pans have spirits, as do your lucky jeans. Communicating
with inanimate objects is known as psychometry (psychometry is
specifically touching something to gain information about it). But I
see no problem with expanding that word to mean communication with
all inanimate objects. In this guide, ‘inanimate’ means something
organically dead, even if it has a living spirit.
guide is about “psychic” communication, which means without
tools. The communication will exist in your mind. In my opinion this
is a very good form of communication for any magic-worker to develop,
for a couple reasons.
will improve your psychic abilities in general
will no longer need to carry tools with you; you may communicate with
any spirit, anywhere, any time
will improve your magical focus
can experience spirits in a more undiluted form
really, really cool
let me explain fully what I mean when I say this communication will
exist “within your mind”.
all know of people who see and hear spirits as if the spirits were
three-dimensional, flesh-and-blood beings. This is rare. You
shouldn’t be particularly jealous of these people, either. I’ve never
met a person (so far) who was happy about having these gifts. As
someone who occasionally sees things with their two-eyes, it is a
scary and intimidating experience.
the majority of us magical normies, we are going to experience
spirits within the platform of our imagination.
may be disappointing to you. Who wants to feel as if they are just
'imagining’ spirits? Yet our imagination is the platform for all
magic. Beings who cannot imagine another reality cannot create that
other reality. Our imagination is an incredible magical power, giving
us the ability to connect with other realities. Get over the idea
that what you imagine is just “in your mind.” It is not.
is also uncommon for a person to hear, see, or imagine actual words
in their own spoken language. Spirits are much more likely to
communicate empathetically, by giving us feelings, thoughts, or
emotions. They may also use gestures and actions, which we will see
when we view them in our minds. This may sound very obscure, but it
is not. It is very easy to tell when a spirit is happy or angry,
wants to leave, wants to stay, or wants you to follow them. Even the
appearance of the spirit itself will communicate something to you.
How do they present themselves? Do you believe the form they take?
guide is going to be primarily written for communicating with
inanimate or organic spirits, but the same concepts may be applied to
working with non-physical spirits.
is pretty important that you get to know yourself. If you are serious
about spirit work, it is vital
that you know yourself. This means that you are able to understand
where your thoughts come from, and identify if a thought is or is not
yours. For example, I was doing an important spell yesterday. I
suddenly got quite a bad feeling. However, I was able to identify
that it was a spirit within my circle giving me a warning, instead of
an internal anxiety. If I had not known this, I may have shut this
important spell down totally instead of identifying the warning for
what it was.
relatively good at clearing your mind. Do this through meditation.
Strive to achieve a state of clear-mindnedness for a few seconds at a
time, on command.
method may be safer than communicating with unknown spirits you call
through the aether.
you psychically connect with a spirit, you may continue getting
information from that spirit for some time.
can vastly help this process along. If you don’t prefer that mental
high, try another psychic plant instead. Make tea or smoke the herbs.
Started with the Bump
something you just know
has a spirit. I would really recommend a plant. It could be a
houseplant or a tree or anything. If you are absolutely of the mind
that an inanimate object has a spirit, get in touch with that
instead. Right now avoid animals and humans. They are a little more
difficult to read, and your mental probing could bother Fido. For
this exercise I will assume we are using a plant.
the plant casually, and bump your mind against it. When I say “bump”
your mind, I just mean to consider the plant intensely for a few
moments, then let your focus fade. Do you get any feelings? Any
sensations? Do you have any memories that come to you? All these
things are good. The feelings may be quite obvious; when I “bump”
my Apricot tree, I experience the memory of how apricots taste.
“bumping” things often and see if you get any response. If your
mind is totally blank, no worries; the “bump” will come with
time. Or, perhaps you have your own unique way of interacting with
spirits! Experiment and see what works for you. There is also a
chance that whatever you are trying to bump has no spirit, such as an
inanimate object you wrongly identified as being inspirited.
you do happen to have any experiences when you bump the plant,
remember them for your upcoming communication. Suppose you have bad,
good, or neutral experiences; all these will tell you the current
state or mood of the plant. When I bump the Redwood trees in my yard,
typically they make me think of healthy, strong, powerful plants.
Today when I bumped them, I was reminded of the oracle card Struggle
and I felt like they were warriors losing a battle (the drought here
is killing most of our evergreens). I also got a strained emotional
feeling. These feelings give me an accurate picture of the state of
the Redwood trees.
finding three different objects right now and bumping them. See what
happens! It is quite alright if you feel you are just having normal
memories; spirit communication is in fact quite normal in many ways.
“bump” is a good way to start and practice spirit communication.
bump works because all humans are natural spirit-workers to some
degree. When you focus on something, you are contacting it’s spirit.
You just have to pay attention to what comes to you, and recognize it
for what it is: real communication. If the bump simply is not working
for you, try using tools to help. Meditate with psychic stones, burn
a little psychic incense, or create a ring that you look through
which opens up a portal of access.
further; back-and-forth communication
you have the bump down, continue on to the next step (if the bump
isn’t working for you after a couple days of attempts, move on
anyways. It will not hurt).
you bump the plant, you are receiving active communication from it,
even if this communication is in the form of memories. Try bumping a
plant, then while you are having your bump-experiences, ask it a
question that will cause your perceptions to change. For example, do
not ask, “how are you doing?” because you are already finding out
how they are doing with the bump. Vocally or mentally, try asking one
of the following example questions.
do you need?
do you like the cat? (or any influencing factor in their lives)
old are you?
do you think of water?
you want some plant food?
you like this spot you are at?
is your favorite thing?
general, it is polite to avoid asking questions which would upset the
plant. “Do you want to be chopped up in to little pieces and eaten”
is not an appropriate question to a plant, just as it would not be
appropriate to another human.
you ask the question, allow your mind to unfocus and see what comes
to you. When I ask most of my trees about water, I see dried deserts.
This is a clear sign that they are parched; unfortunately there is
not a lot I can do. Just now I asked a house plant about water and it
showed me a swampy marsh with vibrant green foliage. It is
especially with trees, you may see a human figure in your
imagination. This is quite normal. Carefully try to remember how the
spirit of that plant looks to you. If you are interested in this, try
researching tree lore for your culture. The plant spirits should
express the lore of the tree.
is your job to interpret the images and feelings you get in to
communication. This may be difficult at the start, but you will get
the hang of it. For example I just asked that same houseplant if it
would like any food. It showed me a flat surface with an indent in it
about three inches deep. I interpret this to mean the plant would
like more food – because it showed me a hole that needed to be
that note, asking other spirit-workers to help you interpret your
visions may or may not work. Your brain is interpreting the
spirit-signals given to you, and therefore it is uniquely and
intimately personal to you. I have seen very fascinating and
thought-inducing discussions when people ask others to help interpret
their communications, but typically, all the ideas are wildly
different. One person may see the marsh and assume the plant has had
too much water. Another person will say, “your plant doesn’t care
about water, it wants to be planted in the wild.” It is ultimately
up to you to interpret
what is going on.
you have spoken to the plant and received a response, try touching
the plant gently and see what comes to you. Or, try moving it in to
the sun or shade and see what the plant thinks.
animal spirits works much in the same way as plant spirits. I have
noticed that the spirit of the human or animal will respond, even if
they consciously do not seem to be aware of it at all.
now I “asked” my dog three questions: “How are you feeling? Are
you hungry? Are you thirsty?” I received first feelings of boredom
and hyperactivity, then feelings of satiation, then a vivid aqua blue
color which I interpreted to mean, “I have had lots of water
recently.” Yet my dog did not stop to look at me, or act as if
something was intruding upon her spirit. She kept playing as usual.
Just now I had to discipline her for jumping on the table, and now
she feels sad.
pretty neat thing about bumping humans is that you can get really
strange responses. Humans are unlike any other creature we know; we
can be closed off. We can open up. We can cast spells. Get a group of
magic-worker friends. Bump each other and share what you find. You
may be bumping up against a person’s shields or personal spells!
with your magical objects to determine their effects and charge.
Communicate with anything to see if it is dangerous, if you need to
avoid it, or if it is okay to approach. Communicate with curious
objects at thrift stores to find out its history. Communicate with
your plants to see how they are doing and make sure they have what
to communicate with abstract concepts and natural phenomena.
Communicate with your house, the land, and the weather. Communicate
with the spirit of wealth and prosperity in your home. Give it
offerings. Make friends with it.
something is wrong with a loved one, an object, or a spell,
communicate with it first to see what is wrong. Then take the
appropriate steps to help remedy the situation.
technique is obviously not going to work for 100% of all people.
There are just too many confounding variables. Some people have
really huge and heavy blockages that prevent them from psychic
communication, often built themselves after scary experiences. If
this technique does not seem to work at all for you, send me a
message and we will troubleshoot.
It’s been roughly 7 months now that I’ve started accepting my abilities and learn how to use them, especially with spirit work because that’s where I feel most comfortable. I thought I’d share some impressions.
It works best to send feelings/images to entities to be understood
They and us don’t use the same language, or even communication systems (including body language… if they have a body)
Names very rarely “stick” to your memory because of the two observations above, it’s like hearing symbols and it’s so foreign that your brain directly refuses to understand it
There are spirits everywhere, and ghosts are more common than you’d think. It’s just that either they’re so weak you have to pay very close attention to feel them, or they ignore you, or they just… exist in one place and you do too
Evil spirits are like herpes
The kind of spirits that has the closest way of thinking to our own are probably the gods (add “” if you’re a secular witch, you can still meet them even if you don’t believe in them as I discovered), which makes sense because mythos describe them as having “human flaws”
Be polite at all costs until you’re attacked. Then wreck havoc.
Creating basic thoughtforms is easy, but if you don’t give them orders they will do shit. If you give them energy regularly they develop a more and more complex intellect
Places have feelings
Rocks too (my obsidian is sassy)
Domestic animals partially communicate through telepathy and wild animals have sort of basic energy shields blocking it
Plants are so fucking chill and nice, don’t hurt them (most of the time they are happy, such smol precious happy simple souls)
I think my soulmate might be dead because I can only find their empty bedroom through astral travel ( :’( )
I am beginning to experiment with past lives memories, I have more of them than I thought (though not many human ones, which would explain how terrible I am at human communication)
That’s all I can remember right now, if you have questions my askbox is open
The body is a spiritual vessel with Neptune in the 2nd. Mindfulness and physical sensation is transporting, skin and bone becomes a temple of worship. The inner world is a wealthy ocean of mysticism and delight. The body is a psychic sonar of its own, intuition flows freely, and the individual feels goodness and danger though inner exploration and sensation. Sensory delight can be an entrancing orgasm. All the features of Taurus become dreamy and enchanted with Neptune in the 2nd. Physical, emotional, and spiritual comforts become a form of escapism, music takes them away, creativity is rapturous, food is a tactile pleasure, and all material form becomes energising in their hold. This can of course be delirious with Neptune. The individual can be gluttonous and ravenous in its desire for financial accumulation, often believing it will offer ultimate salvation.
The voice can be soothing, hypnotic, and transporting with Neptune in the 2nd. The immune system can be compromised here, the individual may feel easily run down, lethargic, or catch colds frequently. Neptune can cause a sort of dissociation, in the sense that the individual can feel disconnected from the physical body as if it floats away. So nourishing themselves can be difficult, they can overeat or under eat, experience strange physical sensations, and attempt to fill emptiness with material acquisition. The individual must develop empathy, compassion, and above all, respect for themselves. Due to their physical neglect the individual can be submissive. There is a tremendous vision when it comes to developing wealth on an inner and outer dimension. Financial liberation allows the individual to experience more, feel more, taste more, and love more. As Neptune in the 2nd accelerates spiritually, love for the universe and its glorious features becomes the art of existence, and the individual lives for the smell of the rain, the blossom of flowers, the sound of waves. They no longer need to ‘have to hold’, but rather accept their intrinsic relationship with everything.
With Neptune in the 2nd creativity is a graceful expression of spiritual and physical form. The body is an extension of heaven, an easel for the paintbrush of God. Security needs and fears can be exaggerated with Neptune in the 2nd. The individual can suffer intrusive worries regarding being left, losing everything that they have worked so hard for, loss of stability and work. Everything is touched and left with silky gel, like a spellbound alchemist the individual plays fabric like piano keys, can see colours that haven’t been designed yet, and has visions that are directly inspired by spirits. The body is a memory bank with Neptune in the 2nd, it will never forget a touch, an aroma, a feeling, and this can be a comfort or a curse. Every moment can be meditation, the seasons playing to a song, and the stars whispering through pan flutes, Neptune in the 2nd is a floating vessel through clouds of whipped cream.
3. Spirits do not always realize that they are dead. To them, its like they are stuck in an aweful nightmare.
4. Spirits can communicate with us in various ways. In dreams, through subliminal thoughts, automatic writing, via the use of a pendulum, and intution. Other, more scientific ways are through white noise and evp.
5. Spirits are sometimes mischevious and always curious.
6. Spirits have a profound sense of smell! They are often attracted to certain scents.
7. Spirits are more active at night. Some people think that this is due to less electronic disturbance and that they are able to produce more energy when not having to compete with varous electric and electronic devices.
In the same sense, you are more likely to experience ghostly disturbances when your house is quiet.
8. Spirits can and often do, manifest. Orbs, streaks of light, mists, dark shadows, shadows within shadows, and blurs within the air are the most common. Full-body appritions are always possible, but are not likely.
9. Most ghostly disturbances are actually residue or risidual haunings. Events that play themselves out over and over again, often without the spirit having any control over it whatsoever.
10. Gostly activity is often more prevalent around children and young adults due to the amount of energy they give off. The higher your personal energy, the more spirits are able to absorb.
11. Spirits often retain memories and emotions of their physical life. And most certainly the memories and emotions associated with the time right before their death.
12. Not all ghosts are “trapped.” Some choose to stay within the earthly realm.
13. Spirits retain their personalities.
14. Animals and children are more likely to “see” a ghost.
15. Even the spirits of animals can “haunt.”
16. Spirits can often be helpful.
17. Spirits can often be protective of the families they “haunt.”
18. Ghosts may actually exist in a state of confusion and not have a clue as to what happened to them, why they are here, why you cannot see or hear them, etc.
19. When spirits are bored, they often cause trouble or become mischevious.
20. Certain locations are vortexes or portals where ghosts/spirits can transport themselves from one realm or place to another.
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT SOME OF THESE FACTS!?
