So I was recently listening to a LPOTL episode (352) about the Skinwalker Ranch, and they were on the subject of how a running theme in UFO sightings is that they seem to be very aware of you watching them and will react to your thoughts as if it is no accident that you noticed them. For example if you are doubting what you are seeing they will do something to further reveal themselves, but if you go for a camera they may become skittish and zoom off. About an hour into the episode they said something like this:[Read more…]
So I was thinking about the moon last night and how it’s such a prominent symbol in magick.
Currently the moon affects the tides and we try to balance eggs on the equinoxes because the gravitational pull changes things for us here on earth.

It’s a mental exercise and symbolic visualization process that combines calm meditation with a series of visceral experiences. This mixing and alternating of inhibitory and excitatory states has been helpful to me and was originally performed in Lake Michigan. [Read more…]
Here’s something I have been doing a while and I made some posts about it elsewhere so I thought maybe it was time to post about it here.
How to place a protective ward on your phone:
This is a technique I practice sometimes when charging sigils to help me hold the shape of the sigil in my mind. This helps keep the shape firmly in your mind in case you have trouble with that. Also this is particularly useful in situations where it is not appropriate to close your eyes and meditate, for example driving, donating plasma, staring blankly ahead pretending to pay attention in class, etc. [Read more…]
