It takes YOU to make Spells really work!
In truth, anyone can perform real witchcraft spells that work. Have you questioned what makes your intentions manifest into your desires? The answer is the power of our Third-Eye(the mind's eye) by using it to create a visualization of what you desire.
One of my mentors, Laurie Cabot in her book, 'Power of the Witch' wrote, "... Witches firmly believe that psychic power is reliable. We use it for the alpha state of consciousness in spells, divination, magic circles, and rituals. Psychic powers- or magic- is based on science and can be taught to others." By conquering the use of visualization at a moments notice, you will possess one of the best tools to use in the success of your spells.
The science of brain waves registered at cycles per second is too extensive for me to go to deep into the subject. For our needs a quick breakdown of what the brain waves are doing during different states of consciousness will be our focus. Beta cycles are 14 to 30 waves per second; beta state occur when we are mentally alert, awake, and engaged in activity. Beta state also includes excitement, fear, and stress. Alpha cycles are 7 to 14 waves per second; alpha state occur as an altered state of consciousness associated with relaxation, meditation, and dreaming. Theta cycles are 4 to 7 waves per second; theta state relates to drowiness, euphoria, and deep tranquillity. Delta cycles of 1 to 3 waves per second; delta occur in deep, dreamless sleep.
When you are ready to go from beta waves to alpha waves, there is a sequence of numbers with corresponding colors you need to memorize before you try to go into alpha state. If you have to stop to check something, then you must start all over again. The sequence of colors and number is an universally accepted scientific reality as that found in a rainbow or prism. Here are the numbers and the colors that belong together:
7 = red 3 = blue 6 = orange 2 = indigo 5 = yellow 1 = orchid (light purple) 4 = green
By closing your eyes, calming your breathing, and then count down from 7 to 1 as you visualize with your mind's eye the corresponding color, you attain the lower brain waves of alpha. In this mild trance alpha state is the heart of truly powerful witchcraft spells. Visualizing our desires brings them into a reality- one step closer to the actual manifestations of our desires.
Here is an exercise that I would like to leave you with that would be extremely beneficial but you must learn it and master it in order to acquire the ability of how to control and master the alpha state. I have learned and mastered this exercise from Laurie Cabot's, 'Power of the Witch'.
The Crystal Countdown
Find a quiet place, sit down, get comfortable, close your eyes, and spend a moment breathing deeply and relaxing. When you feel centered, or balanced, keeping your eyes closed and with your Third-Eye (the mind's eye) visualize an empty white screen about a foot in front of you. Your eyes may flutter or roll upwards while closed; it is an automatic reflex that in time the fluttering will stop.
Next see on the screen a red number 7. If this won't appear easily, try picturing just the number 7 or just a red background. Try to recall an object that is the color you want to envision and see it in your mind's eye. An example would be a red fire truck, a yellow sun, or a rainbow. The goal is to be able to visualize the numbers 7 down to 1 with the matching color for that number as shown previously above. You want to be able to hold each colored number for a moment then release.
When you reach orchid, count down 10 to 1 without colors to deepen the alpha state. Then mentally say to yourself with conviction, "I am now in alpha and everything I do will be accurate and correct, and this is so. At this point you will perform the task you decided upon. Keep in mind that the alpha state is not like sleeping. Even though you have counted down, feel relaxed, and have your eyes closed, you are still in total control of what happens to you.
To return to what science calls the beta level of brain waves-or normal waking consciousness- erase what is on the screen with your hands. Then, while still in alpha, with your eyes shut, give yourself Total Health Clearance in the following way: Place your hand about six inches above your head, palm downwards. Then in one smooth swoop bring your hand down in front of your face, chest, stomach while turning your palm outward pushing away from you. Say to yourself, "I am healing myself and giving myself total health clearance." This must be done every time you prepare to come out of alpha. You will clear the way of any harmful energies that are present, and you will project an image of yourself as strong and healthy. Next count up slowly from 1 to 10, then 1 to 7, slowly open your eyes, and gradually realize your presence in the room.
Alpha is key to all future spell work in the craft. Practice it every day for at least five or six weeks to perfect this exercise. As soon as you can master "The Crystal Countdown", you will be well on your way to manifesting powerful spells while harming none. Blessed Be!
