When we perform magick we are tapping into a limitless supply of energy around us and inside of us and directing it toward a single purpose. So why if all this energy is so abundant can we only do so much and potentially feel so very drained? The truth is there is nothing wrong with the energy flow it is all to do with us and the finite source of energy we have in our bodies, that is why we invoke and evoke higher beings and why we take in different energies for different rites. But what if we needed a very specific type of energy or needed to tap into a specific 'current' or 'realm'? Well that is where I developed a way to tap into the exact current of energy I wanted, to truly utilise an infinite supply of pure specific energy.

Here is a step by step guide on my technique, if anyone has a different way of doing this please let me know as I will be very interested and eager to try it out.

1. First you need to figure out exactly what type of energy you wish to utilise (fire, earth, enochian etc), this is an important step for when we think of the energy we need it almost comes naturally and calls to us through the realms.

2. Create a small sphere of neutral energy in your hands, then concentrating on the specific energy type infuse the neutral energy sphere with that energy. Let us say that it was fire, now you have a ball of fire energy in your palms. Hold it there and try and refine it as much as possible.

3. Now take the middle and index fingers of your dominant hand and place it in the centre of your sphere, feel it coat your fingers. Then inscribe a circle in the air, as you inscribe the circle imagine your fingers cutting into the fabric of reality itself and the energy around your fingers lingering and forming a circle. Following our example of fire you should now have a circle of fire in the air in front of you.

4. Now with the fire energy (or whatever you chose) still on your fingers inscribe a symbol in the middle of the circle that represents the type of energy you wish yo use. So for fire it would be the Leo sign or a point up triangle or whatever means fire to you. Hold the circle and symbol in your mind and point directly at the symbol with your fingers.

5. See space and reality collapsing on itself inside the circle, see your symbol burning through the layers of space and reality as it seeks to connect with its source. Once you feel the symbol has connected, see it explode and fill the circle with the energy you have chosen. So for fire you would see a circle of pure fire burning in the air before you. Feel this energy rush out of the circle and fill the room or space of your working, pull this energy into you and use it for the purpose you have intended.

6. To close the gate simply will the gate to close and see the energy collapsing in on itself to reform the symbol you originally used to open it. Now will this symbol to grow cold and inert until it is a dull grey colour. When you feel it has lost all original charge simply will and see the symbol and circle to dissipate into the ether.

There you have it, a technique for opening astral gateways. Please comment and provide feedback as it will be much appreciated, thank you.

It is not necessary to open a 'gateway' for the purpose of accessing these energies. The technique, however, might be better utilized as a means of projection into the current/plane/etc. to gain insight or resonance with those forces.

We do not access 'energies' outside the scope of natural existence - there is no such place. Every part of creation harbors every kind of energy, expressed in actions and principles as well as material nature itself. You are not so separated from these converging currents that you need to cross some threshold in order to work with them.

As a method of invocation this is likely not a fruitless approach, but perhaps redundant. The energy ball opening is not necessary. Psi-balls are quite a popular bit of eastern conceptual-mistranslation. The thing to focus on is not the shape, but the principle of the shape - centrality, symmetry, rotation, involution, etc. It is the motion, not the shape. Focus on the motion, and you'll see a positive change in your experience of the phenomenon. Throw the 'shape' out entirely. Shape structured, energy is unstructured, force it into a structure and you'll lose the essence; there is no flow, and in the static concept the energy ceases to really move - when it ceases to move, it ceases to be, and what occupies the mind instead is the ideal and the hope, and the imagined image of what we want, not the thing itself.

Beyond these criticisms, the basic elements of a proper ritual are present - statement of intent, opening, execution of symbolic action, closing/withdrawing. Remember not to rely on imagination alone - it's better to feel, to direct with intention and will, rather than to get caught up in 'seeing it happen'. Energy work is fundamental and requires visceral commitment, not imagination. That is, imagination is training wheels, take them off eventually.

peace

I was reading something goibniu said the other day an knowing he's into qui-gong thought i'd do a bit of re-search an give it a go at making a chi-ball
I stood their, feeling all the viscus wirly stuff and all i could seem to do was make it swirl round like a wirl-pool, got really frusterated i couldn't make a ball,
i thought 'i used to make balls when i was younger an off my face, why can't i do it now?' whats the intention anyway!?... grrr, i was all annoyed at not making a ball.
Next day you say this; dam man your so regular with saying exactly what needs to be said it's almost.. Paranormal
Credit.

Hope everyone had a great new years btw!

Well thank you very much for replying and giving such constructive criticism, it is truly appreciated. But the thing is "to gain insight or resonance with those forces." as you put it is exactly what I'm aiming to do. I know that every single form of energy exists in nature around us and can also be transformed into another frequency of our choosing, I just feel like that doesn't give you all the power you could have. I felt that if a specific type of energy or paradigm was needed why not go directly to the source of that energy?

It is not meant to be an invocation or even an evocation just another "battery pack" I guess is the closest example. Also I know that the whole psi-ball bit is redundant because this is what it did in my first effort sort of experiment with gateways. Since then I've become more refined in my technique an no longer even need to visualise any symbols. Also you're right I did rely on sight too much in my example, but that's mainly because it's a bit difficult to put into words things you're feeling spiritually and not seeing.

I am also slowly moving away from imagination and starting to just feel, sort of like in the Matrix when Morpheus says "Stop trying to hit me and hit me!" I'm starting to think less about doing it and just doing it. But hey maybe you're right and this technique is a bit redundant for certain things, I just thought it was an interesting concept and experiment and wanted to put it out there.


Also lol and happy new years to you too Draw, trust me it took me over two weeks to make my first energy ball. Even still they're not as good as they should be. Keep trying and hopefully you'll get it down soon.

Thanks for posting ^^

I'm afraid that energy balls don't work quite like in the Japanese cartoons, but in Qigong we do have an exercise involving balls of energy. Here is an example of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2spqmvBS3g&feature=related By 'polishing' the ball of energy, you will feel the energy ball become denser or stronger simply by playing with it.

Unfortunately you can't throw Qi balls like baseballs. The balls of energy cease to have any cohesiveness once they leave your hands. You can shape or program the kind of energy through mental effort and visualization. Personally I never feel drained of energy after working. Essentially I just channel the energy through myself from a limitless source (energy is all around us.) Usually I feel more energy rather than less after doing something like spellwork. If you feel drained afterwards I would think that it is just because you have enough blockages that your body isn't able to process and channel energy well enough. But through practice and clearing out blockages your abilities to channel energy improve.

Don't worry. It'll only seem kinky the first time.

I actually do a slight variation of that method in my Wing Chun martial arts class so I get a little chance to play with the energy every now and then. The thing is even though I have been doing the energy ball exercise for years now it still feels very weak. Is it the energy itself or is it just my intention that is off, because I do find it hard to fully focus. I'm starting to seriously meditate every night again so I can reduce my mental clutter and concentrate better on my tasks, so maybe after a couple weeks there'll be a difference.

Really? I find that surprising because I play "throw the energy ball" with my friends every now and then and it still retains it's shape. Though it does tend to lose energy quite quickly and you have to add a little bit more to it every time it gets passed. I probably do have quite a few blockages inside, every day I cycle my energy through my body and feel it being cycled and intensified through my chakras. I also try and ground and centre every day, I've been doing this for years so it's basically a habit now. But like I said before is it just my energy is weak or is it just that I'm too unfocused?

Be very careful with this. I used to mess around with Ouija boards a lot as a kid; what we discovered was that doing that too often, had a tendency to open and anchor permanent vortexes into the lower aetheric. Once you've got one of those open, pretty much anyone who feels like it can come through, whenever they want; including when you're not using the board. That is not something you want to experience.

It's a great technique, and I can definitely see myself utilising it as well some time, but I'd recommend coming up with a formula for a corresponding banishing or sealing of the veil, as well. If you don't do that, you're likely to have a problem where either energy from the plane in question can keep seeping through, which can mess with your elemental balance, or worse, actual entities.

I don't claim to have had nearly as much practical experience as some of the people on this board, but I have had a couple of operations go south. Generally speaking, it happens because I haven't paid enough attention to cleaning up after myself. You need to be very precise when it comes to determining your intentions or goals with magick in general, and it is also very important to make sure that you don't leave any doors open. Operations are bookended by banishings for a reason; and if you get into evocation in particular, you'll likely learn what that reason is. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/zomby.gif)
