Basic Exercise

Close your eyes and take three deep breathes. Ground and center and visualize yourself sitting in the center of a protective, white light. Count down slowly from 25 to 1. Imagine that there is a third eye at the center of your forehead that is currently closed. Take a deep breath and concentrate on that eye. It is not bad or evil, it is simply another sense — the sixth sense that you’ve read about. Norma. Natural. It can “see” things that your other senses may subconsciously pick up (and they do), but they aren’t strong enough to bring the information to your conscious mind — you need this eye (for the moment) to do that. Take your time visualizing with and connecting to the idea that you do, indeed, have this psychic gift. As we already know that everyone has this ability and that you simply have to work with it to succeed (like you’re doing now), this won’t be too hard. If you have any trouble thinking you are psychic, look back to your childhood when all things seemed magickal. It won’t take long to capture that feeling again.

For the first two weeks, concentrate simply on opening this eye. What does it feel like as this eye slowly awakens? Do you feel hot? Cold? Is there a pleasant tingling sensation? Each person will experience different phenomena. Fear is not an option. If you are afraid, go no further. You are not ready to awaken your gifts, and don’t get all excited about it. Perhaps you need to study more, or overcome something more important in your life right now. Anger management might be an issue. If you are not afraid, move the eye around with your mind. (Remember, your other two eyes are closed.) Check out the room. What do you see? If it isn’t clear, don’t panic. You are exercising a talent that has been dormant for a long time. Don’t strain. When you feel you’ve had enough, concentrate on closing the eye. Ground and center again, then count from 1 to 5. Open your eyes and take a deep breath. If you had any psychic flashes at all, write them down in a notebook.

Intermediate Exercise

The intermediate exercise is not done in your home or apartment, but during moments of active life. Carry a small notepad with you to take notes, if necessary. The key to this exercise is to follow the directions without skipping anything. No matter when you open the third eye, you must remember to consciously conjure that protective white light around you to avoid the emotional connection.

Step One: Ground and center
Step Two: Visualize white light all around you
Step Three: While your eyes are open, look at a particular person, where their third eye is located
Step Four: In your mind, open your own third eye
Step Five: Without emotion, catalog the impressions you receive, if any. Do not be intrusive or try to probe someone’s mind. That’s not what this exercise is about. (It’s also rude and eventually you’ll be caught. The backlash you receive won’t be pleasant)
Step Six: Mentally close your third eye
Step Seven: Take a deep breath, pushing all negativity away from you as you exhale. Later, record your impressions without allowing your emotions or personal judgments to interfere (which is also an exercise well worth learning to control)

How do you know when the exercise has been successful? First, if you begin seeing the “spirit body” of a person when you look at them, then you are on the right track. When looking at a spirit body, all emotion you attach to that person drains away. You are seeing them for what they really are — normally glowing light (the wattage depends on a number of factors, including their health and state of mind). Second, if the information you receive later proves to be true, then you know that your sensing capabilities were accurate. One note of caution: Sometimes you will have off days, or your own state of mind won’t be the best, or perhaps you’re not physically feeling well yourself — in those instances, the information you receive may not be accurate, which is why we must always stay away from snap judgments and be patient when it comes to dealing with psychism and information gained in this way.

Advanced Exercise

There are nine different objects that you can make and the intent statements that go with them listed below. In a magick circle, cleanse and consecrate the clay, then make the object with your hands, considering the intent. Allow to dry.

When you are ready, situate yourself comfortably for meditation, holding the object in both hands in your lap. Think about the statement of intent associated with the object. Close your eyes and take three deep breaths. Ground and center, then visualize yourself sitting in the center of protective, white light. Count down slowly from 25 to 1. Imagine that there is a third eye in the center of your forehead that is currently closed. Take another deep breath and concentrate on that eye. Take your time visualizing with and connecting to the idea that you do, indeed, have this psychic gift, and that such a gift enables you to reach for the intent represented by the object held in your hands. Slowly open your inner eye. Connect your psychic vision with the intent of the object in your hands. Relax and let the images come. What do you see? If it isn’t clear, don’t panic or strain. If nothing happens, don’t worry about it. Work with the object for one week. If you still get nothing, move to a different object the following week. Later, once you have worked with all the objects, you can use them again for purposes designed for yourself.

When you feel you’ve had enough, concentrate on closing the eye. Ground and center again, and count from1 to 5. Open your eyes and take a deep breath. If you had any psychic flashes at all, write them down in a notebook.
