spiritual plane

11th Chakra
When the eleventh chakra starts to open the individual will become aware of the larger picture of his or her multidimensional self; that his or her existence in physical reality is just one manifestation of many simultaneous other existences on other planes of existence. This explanation gives a hint to what awaits the individual after ascension; the working toward becoming conscious on all planes of existence, not just the physical one.

Pisces - Losing her in other realms

Pisces illustrates two drenched figures guarding her curved gate, signifying her constant entrance and re-entrance into the spiritual ocean. The Pisces symbol illustrates these winding gates, the entrance is of course obscured, and once she leaves there’s a possibility she will never fully return. When reality becomes static and threatening, she plunges headfirst into the sea to burry her ears with water and tune into another world. You see Pisces do this frequently with books, television, daydream, sleep, their creative work, sex, or substances. There are angels and devils that reveal themselves in Pisces, they are such a porous and diluted essence that any entity - immortal or not can energise from them. They have energy that vibrates well on the spiritual plane and poorly on the material plane. It creates an agitating conflict in the individual, she often feels alien in her own body and form. This is also why people suffering spiritual crises are unconsciously drawn to Pisces, they drink her nectar like they are drowning, but they so often leave her too exhausted to save herself. In her darker moments she submits to devils, luring her into false or fanatic belief systems, becoming hostage to delusion and escapism. There’s a valid reason that Dane Rudhyar refers to the Piscean temperament as a battlefield. But the angel also rides the energetic light of Pisces, and she frequently whispers cosmic messages in some form, tapping into her psychic functions and protecting her from a distance. She wrote a severe contract for earth before incarnating as Pisces. And God knows this, so her support system is rich and active. It’s ensured there are angels, guides, ancestors, and spiritual mentors always on call, this is why so many Pisces make natural spiritualists, healers, witches, and clairvoyants. The 6th sense is how she perceives, feels, knows, and understands the world. The ocean is vast and largely undiscovered, in a spiritual sense it symbolises everything. This is the experience for Pisces. The intensity of containing such spiritual mass is too harsh for a physical body. So the Pisces has many bodies she can swim into. She glides into new states of consciousness and adapts her form with the ease of her changing mood. In all of this mayhem, there is a very peaceful, silent space inside Pisces where she is held by her guides and cocooned in a dreamy coma. Her enlightenments are small but frequent, there are miracles waiting to reveal themselves to her eyes only. Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and symbolises the higher mind. The ancients taught us that imagination is the conduit to entering the higher mind realms. The Pisces imagination is her ticket to the cerebral spiritual kingdom, in her moments of daydream and escape she typically undertakes tremendous, internal spiritual voyages. Along the way lost devils and angels find her light and flicker by her side, energised like moths to a flame, and there are times when she fools us that she is one of each.

Scorpio/8th House + Sexuality

I want to get into a stranger topic because I never really see anyone cover this;

Something I’ve noticed is that we tend to associate Scorpio being the most carnal and sex driven archetype out of all the signs which I don’t think is necessarily the true connection between Scorpio/8th House and sexuality. Don’t get me wrong, Scorpio and the 8th house do define sexual expression, but on a completely different level.

I think we need to break the idea that Scorpio is the most hyper-sexual out of all of archetypes and start making the real connections to placements that do symbolize or allude to hyper-sexuality. The amount of times I see posts implying  that a Mars in Scorpio is the “kinkiest” placement followed by posts of someone who identifies as asexual complaining that being born under the sign of Scorpio didn’t make them sex-crazed. Well, if you know a thing or two about astrology, you would know there is always more to the picture. 

Scorpio is not pleasure driven. Scorpio is driven by soul intimacy; just how close can two souls get? How close can you get to death without leaving your mortal self? Scorpio sees sexual expression as a conquerable death. The so-called “lust” that tempts Scorpio is just a yearn for transformation. Scorpio has rulership over sexuality because it understands intimacy on a far less carnal level; a soul level. 
One must also keep in mind that the 8th house is one of the three soul houses, therefore it has no rulership over materialism (aside from accumulated materials). In fact, the 8th house does not actually have rulership over intercourse, although it does rule over intimacy, that intimacy being on a spiritual plane. It does not rule the act, but rather the expression. 
You have to look to the 5th house for sensuous enjoyments, physical pleasure, promiscuity, and sexual intrigue. 
Another thing to consider about the 8th house is that it comes after the house of partnership (7th) meaning the 8th house does not symbolize meaningless pleasure. It symbolizes connections one has with people that are profound and deep; soul bonded connections. Anything casual, meaningless, or “just for fun” is always put into the 5th. 

For your curiosity, here’s some notes on placements that effect one’s sexuality (feel free to send an ask on any of this because I’m not really going to elaborate too much on this post);

The 8th House;

-Sun in the 8th house can symbolize a deep connection through intimacy; like a profound awakening through being intimate with another soul.

-Moon in the 8th house can be similar to the Sun placement, but this is the perfect representation of someone who favours an emotional bond over sex. 

-Mercury in the 8th house verbally communicates about intimacy.

-Venus in the 8th house can be sensual, but lazy. Expects the deep connection to come to them rather than they go searching for it. 

-Mars in the 8th house symbolizes high sexual energy. It can also symbolize strife in that area (especially if afflicted); however that strife manifests could depend on a lot of things.

-Jupiter in the 8th house can symbolize great desire and exploration for intimacy. Easily could be labelled as one of those “high sex drive” placements, but the fantasies driven here are more about ‘soul’ intimacy, whether the individual consciously knows that or not. 

-Saturn in the 8th house will likely do the opposite of Jupiter. There can be fear of intimacy or difficulty understanding its importance. Attitude towards sex may need some improvement as Saturn teaches lessons in whatever house its placed in.

-Uranus in the 8th house can make an individual sexually impulsive. 

-Neptune in the 8th house makes for profound experiences in intimacy. Loses self in intimacy and fantasy.

-Pluto in the 8th house makes for the greatest appetite and desire for understanding and experiencing intimacy. Could symbolize obsession. 

The 5th House;

-The 5th house defines a person’s turn ons and carnal knowledge. 

-The sign in which the 5th house cusps, aspects to, and planets in the 5th house can give you some hints to someone’s turn ons. The sign and house Mars sits in as well as aspects to Mars can also give you hints to a person’s turn ons. 

-Mars, Jupiter, or Pluto can symbolize a higher sex drive whereas Saturn does the opposite (Especially if Neptune afflicts Saturn, there can be some confusion on the topic of sex).

Hilma af Klint (Swedish, 1862-1944)

  • The Tail of the Swan, 1914
  • The Swan (No. 17), 1914-15

Hilma af Klint’s paintings are diagrams of a spiritual plane that underlies the visual world. She was a member of a small group of women who would meet to access religious spirits with knowledge of the afterlife.

Gregor, one of the spiritual masters she contacted during these meetings, said to her that the paintings represent “All the knowledge that is not of the senses, not of the intellect, not of the heart but is the property that exclusively belongs to the deepest aspect of your being […] the knowledge of your spirit.”

Hilma af Klint, along with Frantisek Kupka and Wassily Kandinsky, was among the first European artists to create abstract paintings. She wanted to keep her paintings secret from the public until 20 years after her death.

The Seven Hermetic Principles

“The lips of Wisdom are closed, except to the ears of Understanding.” – The Kybalion

In the years of old Egypt, a fundamental truth was shared, which had a profound and remarkable effect on all esoteric teachings to come, from Christian mystics and the Jewish Kabbalah, up to the secret knowledge of India written down in the Upanishads. All these occult teachings show a resemblance in their deepest and most basic ideas. The master Hermes Trismegistos, whose actual physical existence had never been proved, has been said to be the “Master of the Masters”, “the Scribe of the Gods”, and even “the God of Wisdom” himself. As a mythological figure, the greek god Hermes is equal to the roman god Mercury and to the egyptian deity Toth; god of the moon, magic and wisdom. Hermes’ philosophy has been passed on both orally and in writing throughout the last several centuries. The first written version is said to be the “Tabula Smaragdina”, a text of twelve sentences that contains all knowledge, found within Hermes’ grave. While the original Tabula Smaragdina is missing, writings about it have been found in Latin, Arabic and Greek since several hundreds of years. In 1908 knowledge from the Tabula Smaragdina and the Corpus Hermeticum (other texts by Hermes Trismegistos) got translated and further elaborated in English, known as The Kybalion. The philosophy of Hermes is the key to the understanding of all mystic teachings, including astrology, alchemy and psychology, as well as the many occult writings of different religions. The purpose of all these teachings is the same - The transmutation of consciousness into a higher vibrational state.

The philosophy of Hermes, and thus of all occult and esoteric knowledge, is based on the Seven Hermetic Principles. These laws are universal and ineradicable.

I - The Principle of Mentalism

“The All is Mind; the universe is mental.” – The Kybalion

Our material universe holds a substantial reality, The All, within itself. This All is pure spirit, a living mind, unknowable and undefinable. It is infinite and eternal in time and space. Matter is a mental creation of the All. But while all matter is illusionary from an absolute point of view, it is very real to the finite mind, and must be treated so; however, always with a clear understanding of the higher truth.

II - The Principle of Correspondence

“As above, so below; as below, so above.” – The Kybalion
Our universe consists of the Three Great Planes: the great physical plane, the great mental plane and the great spiritual plane. The Principle of Correspondence implies that there is a harmony and correspondence between each of these planes, since they were all born from the same source. All laws and characteristics are universal and apply to all three great planes and their sub-planes. The alchemist knew that once he turns metal into gold, the same transformation will be done unto his soul.

III - The Principle of Vibration

“Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.” – The Kybalion
Everything within the All is in motion. Matter, mind and spirit are basically the same energy, but differentiate from each other by their rate of vibration. For us humans, the mental plane is eminently interesting, because all kinds of emotions, thoughts, will or desire, as well as any kind of mental condition, vibrates in its very specific mode. One can gain total control of their own mental states and moods by mastering this principle and change their own vibration, and also affect the minds of others by changing theirs. This phenomena is known as telepathy, induction or suggestion.

IV - The Principle of Polarity

“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites. Opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree. Extremes meet; all paradoxes may be reconciled. Everything is and isn’t, at the same time.” – The Kybalion
Everything within the All, whether it is material, mental or spiritual, has two poles, which are but the two extremes of the same thing, with many varying degrees between them. Mental transmutation can only happen by changing the vibrational rate within a thing, but a thing can never be changed in its nature. An undesired rate of mental vibration can be transformed by focusing and putting the awareness onto the other pole. As it is written in the Kybalion: “If you are possessed by fear, do not waste time trying to “kill out” fear, but instead cultivate the quality of courage, and the fear will disappear.” The tendency of nature itself is to move into the direction of a higher vibration, back to the pure spirit it once came from.

V - The Principle of Rhythm

“Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.” – The Kybalion
Between the two poles of everything, there is a pendulum-like movement, a measured motion with equal amplitude to the left and to the right. This balance of the swing is called the Law of Compensation. This law also applies to mental states in man, balancing the capacity for pain and pleasure. The more suffering one is able to bear, the more enjoyment awaits him, and vice versa. However, Hermetics use the Law of Neutralization by changing their own vibrations to a higher plane, and thus escape the effects of the negative swing of the pendulum on the lower plane.

VI - The Principle of Cause and Effect

“Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.” – The Kybalion
There is no such thing as chance; there is a cause for every effect and an effect for every cause. Chance is a term for an effect that results from causes we can’t perceive or understand. Most of us go through life being mere effects; pawns to their own creation.
Those who are able to raise their vibration to a higher plane, those who understand that not only our acts, but also our thoughts and emotions will have an effect, become Causers instead of Effects. They dominate moods, characters, qualities and powers in both themselves and in others. They do not escape from causation, but they serve on the higher plane, and rule on the lower one.

VII - The Principle of Gender

“Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes.” – The Kybalion
Everything on the material, mental and spiritual plane contains the masculine and the feminine principle. Neither the masculine nor the feminine principle is capable of creating without the operative energy of the other. While the feminine principle tends to receive impressions, and generates thoughts, ideas and the full work of imagination upon these outer perceptions, it needs the masculine principle and its expressive tendency to generate and materialize original mental creations. Creation is only possible by a union of the two elements.

For the Hermetics it was not only essential to know and deeply understand these principles, but also to master, use and express them. Only then could some good come out of it for the possessor of the knowledge, and for the whole race. “True hermetic transmutation is a Mental Art”, speaks the Kybalion, “If the universe be mental, in its substantial nature, then it follows that Mental Transmutation must change the conditions and phenomena of the universe. If the universe is mental, then Mind must be the highest Power affecting its phenomena. “ The Hermetics knew that by raising their own vibration to a higher plane, and thus be able to rule on the lower one, they did not cheat, but play an important part of the game. They still served on the higher planes, fully aware that they could not destroy or avoid any principle.

“The half-wise, recognizing the comparative unreality of the universe, imagine that they may defy its laws. Such are vain and presumptuous fools. The truly wise, knowing the nature of the universe, use law against laws; the higher against the lower; and by the Art of Alchemy transmute that which is undesirable into that which is worthy, and thus triumph. Transmutation, not presumptuous denial, is the weapon of the master.” – The Kybalion

Learning to write your own spells, and/or rituals

Introduction :

All the Spells, and/or rituals that you have seen at one point had to be created, and written down. Learning to do this process, and to write down your own spells, and rituals can be a very fun, and creative process. Learning to do this can greatly help you along your path allowing your magick to become more versatile, and connected to you. You will not need to know a lot in order to do this, all you will need to do is understand metaphysical properties, so that you can put them together in order to form some form of a spell, and/or ritual. It’s also very important that you understand how magick works. Being able to write, and create your own spell so that you can personalize them can increase the power, and understanding that you hold with that  spell, and/or ritual.

Setting the intent:

First you need to figure out what you want your intention for the spell, or ritual to be. This can be whatever you wanted to be but it should be in the realms of something that can be achieved through the energy, and will that you have, or can muster. This will make you set your intention so that you can form the rest of your spell, and/or ritual around it, so you will be able to make appropriate choices in choosing things to help you in that spell, and/or ritual. Before you do anything else you must understand what you want to accomplish from this. It will be your blueprint for the rest of what you are building here, so spend a lot of time and focus exactly on what you want to bring forth, and to manifest in the universe around you. The intent will shape the rest of the spell, and/or ritual, so make sure it is exactly what you want before proceeding. You are going to want to create a journal or some place where you can write down this to keep track of what you have done, and the results. This will  allow you to learn, and improve from what you have already done, so that you can make your spells, and rituals better. You never know what you could learn, and want to add to your technique in order to improve it for yourself, or anyone else who will use it.

Gathering items:

In order to manifest our desires upon the universe, we are first going to need to gather constructs that have to do with our intent, so that we can call those energies into our spell, and/or ritual when it comes time to cast it. To find constructs that will fit your intent you should look for items that are well-known for representing the energies that you would like to use in this spell, and/or ritual. You can do this by looking at metaphysical properties of certain stones gemstones, crystals, herb, colors, elements, tools, and much more. These things should have something to do with the energies that you would like to bring into the world. This would be like bringing in three leaf clovers along with the color green, and earth in order to bring about luck. You might want to choose a specific time, day or even place that you could do your spell that might aid in the intent of your spell, and/or ritual. You could even come up with some form of a chant in order to ingrain your intent into the energies that you are gathering. You may also want to gather items that are going to supply the overall energy of your spell this would be things such as candles, clear quartz, or selenite, so that they can use their energies to increase the already existing energy of the spell, and/or ritual. This can be incredibly helpful when trying to increase the overall effectiveness, and power of  the spell, and/or ritual.

If you want your spell to target someone, something or even yourself you can bring in to your spell, and/or ritual some form of taglock. This taglock could be linked to someone, something, or even yourself through the laws of names, association, similarity, and/or contagion. If you were going to use a taglock that used the law of names you could try to incorporate the name of where you are trying to send the energy, somehow into the spell, and/or ritual, so that you could direct it at that target. This could be done by speaking their name during the spell, and/or ritual, or even writing it down and just having a present during the spell, and/or ritual. You could use the law of association by associating something, so heavily with what you are trying to affect, and have that be present in your spell, and/or ritual, so that you can manifest your desires upon it. You could use the law of similarity in your spell, and/or ritual by getting a picture of what you would like to affect, and using that to send the energy to your target. In order for you to use the law of contagion in your spell, and/or ritual you would need to get something that came in contact with what you are trying to affect so that you can use it as a target to get to them with the energy that you will be harnessing. Using these taglocks could help you in so many different ways when making spells, and/or rituals while trying to figure out how to connect it to a certain form of construct.

In order to give your spell even more power you might want to call in some other entities in order to help you get exactly what you desire. These entities can be any entities that would be willing to work with you. These entities could be anything from spirit guides, angels, totems, spirit companions, gods, goddesses, familiars, and even ancestors among many other things. They will be able to influence your spellcraft, and help move your energy in the place that you would want it to be. they are great allies, and friends that will be good to call upon especially in this time. So allow these entities to work with you if they are willing to.

Casting the spell, and/or ritual you created :

When you have all these components together you are ready to then do your spell. What you are going to want to do is gather all your materials that you have already decided on in the steps above. Bring them all to a place where you will not be disturbed and you can focus solely on the magick that you are working. Now you are going to want to light your candles, and incense, and maybe even turn on some music, or you some form of instrument in order to make ambience to get the mood just right, and to even help out with the spellcraft. You should then enter the area where you will be doing your craft, and this is when you should take on a meditative state in order for you to connect with the spiritual realms, and planes of existences. Now before you start the spell that you have prepared yourself, you will need to do the basic stuff that you should usually do before every spell. This would be such things as grounding, and centering, so that you can be firmly connected to the earth, while you do all of your spell craft. You should also do some cleansing, and/or banishing using any form of method that you find useful I would personally recommend the Lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram, because it’s a classic. Casting a circle, or some other form of protection technique, so constructs that you do not want interacting with you or the spell stay far away. Once you are done with all of that you can then begin your spell, and/or ritual that you created.

Now you need to take all of the elements that you decided about for the spell, and/or ritual. The idea here is to take all of the correspondences from all the things that you have gathered, and put them together into a workable usable system. Bringing in all the energies from all the items that you have gathered, so you can push it out into the universe, or at a target of your choice in order to cast it out, making your spell, and/or ritual a reality. That’s all there really is to it my friend. Just the energies that you employ, and how, or what you send them at, is what will change the effectiveness, and overall strength of the spell. Remember to gather up the energy that you want, so that it can follow your intention. Energy will always follow intent, allowing you to manifest your desires upon the universe.

Once you are done with your spell, or ritual remember to undo your protection, to banish and/or cleanse again, and then to find the ground, and center again. This will put everything back to where it is supposed to be, so that you can continue on with your day, while knowing that you have cleaned up the leftover energies from your spell, and/or ritual.

We are already in every dimension so there is no shifting dimensions, just shifting perspectives. All possible futures already exist. Which one will YOU choose is the question. Life is co-creation. Being consciously “present”, aware of our energy, is the best thing we can do for ourself and the planet. It’s not our job to “fix” everything, or others, it’s our job to be our authentic selves in each moment doing what we truly feel. This is how we attune the ego and higher self –Jeff Andrews

Spiritual Senses: The Clairs

Introduction:

These are the psychic senses, and the abilities that they have. Knowing, and learning to use the clairs can help you gain information on the world around you. All of these senses are the spiritual extensions of your already existing senses. You already possess them and use them, you just have to remember how to. You do not have to be born with a divine gift in order to use these skills. All you have to do is be open to the experiences you are having, and learn how to progressed them. As long as you take time to progress their growth you will be able to learn, and use them to their full potential. Everybody has these skills to some extent, but they may not be proficient enough for you to get the full experience out of, and need to be exercised in order for them to allow you to perceive the world.

Clairvoyance:

Clairvoyance is the six sense’s ability to see. This allows you to see the spiritual world with your inner eyes, and perceive sites that you never would have seen without it. Through clairvoyance you will receive images, colors, and visions that will allow you to interpret the energies around you in order to gain insight. This is one of the more used, and well-known spiritual senses, because of its famousness, and the fact that it is something that a lot of people can connect to in their sense of perceiving. What you may see in your clairvoyance is usually easy to interpret, and to understand, because most entities are already very used to interpreting things with their eyes. When someone sees something in their spiritual vision they will be able to literally see it in their mind’s eye. Seeing something in your third eye would look a lot like recalling a memory in your head, with how clear it is depending on the Entity receiving it. This is a very good skill to get a hang of if you are a visual person, and will greatly improve how you experience your craft.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairvoyance:

1)  Meditation is always a very good idea when trying to learn any type of spiritual technique, or skill. It allows you to really focus upon it, and unlocked the secrets gradually through your own growing spiritual understanding. So one should always give meditation a try especially to improve your clair abilities. So from here on out just assume that everyone of these spiritual senses could have meditation underneath it. (I’ll still probably put it under each one.) Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation

2) Visualization will help you to better in vision certain shapes, and constructs in your mind’s eye. This will also allow your third eye to be more open to see things in it, and will greatly increase your clairvoyance, because you are using your third eye more.

3) Pay attention to see if there is any images that enter your mind, so that you can try to interpret them.

4) Try to use zener cards in order to improve your viewing skills.

5) Play a nice game of Kreidler The Magick Card Game (This is a promotion for one of my old posts… you caught me…)

6)Ask to see your spirit guides in your mind’s eye.

Clairaudience :

Clairaudience is the six sense’s ability to hear. This allows you to hear the spiritual world through what I would like to call your spiritual ears. This will allow you to perceive noises, sounds, and other audio stimulants from the spiritual planes of existence. This will allow you to hear voices, spiritual audio cues, and maybe even energy itself if you become proficient enough in it. Clairaudience is great for people who are verbal, and need to hear things in order to gain insight easier. Experiencing clairaudience will sound a lot like disembodied audible sounds, but with no discernible source, a lot like when you hear someone call your name. If you can learn to trust what you are hearing you can have a great communication with the entities that are around you, and the spiritual world in general.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairaudience:

1)  Meditation. Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation

2) Sound awareness will make you more sensitive to the sounds around you helping to progressed your spiritual ability to hear, and pick up on low usually unperceived sound.

3) Learn to try to feel into music. You can do this by listening closely to your favorite songs, and trying to feel the energy behind them.

4) Try to imagine sounds happening in your head. This will allow your psychic ears to get more use to trying to hear sounds that are not there.

5) Ask for your spirit guides to make noises that you can perceive with your spiritual ears.

Clairsentience :

Clairsentience is the six sense’s ability to feel. This is the sense that will allow you to feel into information, and be able to read it just from the feelings that you are getting, without any other stimulus tipping you off to that information. This is a pretty hard one to explain but it is very different from clairtangency, and clairempathy, because in this practice you are feeling the straight out from the energy information, you get no other signs, but you just know it. This is a way to clearly sense the world around you.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairsentience:

1)  Meditation. Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation

2) Learning to trust your gut is a very important part of clairsentience, so that you can learn to differentiate from information that you create, versus the information that comes to you via your perception.

3) It is also very important to be aware of your thoughts, some of these could be the higher realms communicating with you.

4) Look at pictures of people, and try to tell everything about them just simply by looking at them. Do not judge them, but much rather allow your intuition to come out.

5) Do automatic writing by just allowing your gut to tell you what is right to write. This will help train your senses.

6) Think about something, and see if any information comes up about it randomly.

Clairescence :

Clairescence also known as clairscent, clairalience, and clairolfaction is the six sense’s ability to smell. Clairescence is one of the more odd ones you don’t hear too much about all the time. this is your ability to spiritually smell, and it’s like perceiving odors, and fragrances that do not have any known source in your surroundings. This is a very interesting way to get insight from your perception, via smells you associated with other constructs, or information. This process is not done with your physical nose, but will still smell in the exact same way. Through the interaction of these smells you will gain insight into the information that is around you.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairescence:

1)  Meditation. Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation

2) Try to imagine smells appearing in your vicinity that  are not presently there.

3) Smell things, and see if you can get information on that thing that you shouldn’t be able to. Pretty much what I’m saying is go out, and smell things.

4) Pay attention to any smells that come into your perception, so that you can analyze them

Clairtangency :

Clairtangency also known as psychometry is the six sense’s ability to touch. This not only allows us to feel spiritual energy with her hands, but it also allows us to read into the information that that energy holds simply by touching it. Simply by touching something you can gain so much insight into the construct that you are making contact with. Once you get good enough at clairtangency you won’t even have to touch the physical object in order to get insight into its energies, all you would have to do is feel the energies around it. Clairtangency can be done with any part of your body, but is primarily done with your hands, because of the very sensitive hand chakras that reside within your palms. Being able to feel the energy around you with a spiritual touch can help you in many ways in your craft just by being a very practical way to feel energy.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:

1)  Meditation. Some meditation posts: Meditation, Void Meditation, Focal Meditation, Journey Meditation

2) Taking different objects into your hand while trying to feel into them is a great way to train, and hone your skills with clairtangency.

3) Pass your hand over objects, and see if you can get a sense of where they have been, or the energies that they produce.

4) go to a museum, do not touch the exhibits, but raise your palm up to them, so that you can feel into their energies, name off some stuff and then check the description to see if you’re right.

Clairgustance :

Clairgustance is the six sense’s ability to taste. This is another one that is kind of out there for most people. This is the ability to spiritually taste things, even if they do not reside in your physical mouth. If you know how will be able to taste things energetically, and from this experience you will be able to gain insight into the energies that you are tasting.

Things that will help you learn, and experience your clairtangency:

2) I know this sounds weird, but in your mind try to taste people’s energy to see if you can tell the difference in its flavors, Essence, and substance.

3) Whenever you taste something try to actually focus in on with that taste is. In order to get used to the sense of taste.

Clairempathy :

Clairempathy also known as just empathy is the six sense’s ability to sense, and feel emotion. Empathy will allow you to feel other people’s emotions, and feelings in order to gain insight into them, and the world around you. Empathy is a very powerful connection that if used correctly, and with a lot of understanding can make interacting with all things a lot better. With empathy you are able to pick up on everything that an entity may be feeling. It is a very deep personal insight that allows you to experience things from others perspectives at least in an emotional sense.

Live Evil@samschechter

I wanted a piece that was initially led by the palindrome, ‘Reviled did I live, said I, as evil I did deliver,’ and tied in with an amalgamation of new and old ideas. A cyber witch coven using new technology to invoke old, old archaic magic. I also wanted to incorporate how screens (tv, cell phone, and otherwise) are also considered a door for the spiritual plane to enter the corporeal plane.
