What To Do When Mental Activation Stops Working
Mental activation worked great for me. Until it didn’t.
In 2006, I’d activated and powered mental areas to learn basic mental communication and energy healing. It wasn’t just faster than I’d learned other skills, it was easier and more fun. Instead of practicing for hours, I would activate a few mental areas and let the new skills sneak into my mind as I rested.
Then the easy progress stopped. The mental areas still activated, but they never became easy to use. Useful magick skills require you to coordinate multiple mental areas, and I simply couldn’t anymore.
Here’s how I fixed it.
Mental areas connect to your brain to read commands and exchange information.
When you activate mental areas by practicing a new skill, that practice also activates more of your brain.
But when I activated mental areas directly, it bypassed that practice. My mental areas had grown 5-10x in the past few months, but the part of my brain devoted to magick had continued to grow at its normal rate. It was simply overloaded.
I’d like to say this understanding grew from a clever investigation of how my brain and mind were interacting. But it was more a triumph of perseverance than insight. I tried every reasonable guess I could: increasing core power, changing the signature of mental areas, reactivating mental areas, etc. Eventually I got lucky with brain activation.
That’s the way magick exploration goes, though. Every success is born of many failures.
I activated more of my brain by flushing energy through it. I’ll explain the technique* next post.
Within a month, I was learning quickly again. Since then, every time I activate a new mental area, I activate a brain area to go with it. Mental activation continues to work well.
*Actually, an improved version of that technique.
