Hotter Energy (My Work May 10-16)

Friday, May 16th, 2014

You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit

This week, I learned to build hotter energy, and control its signature.

(Is “hotter” a new term for you? I explain it toward the bottom of last week’s post.)

My first step was getting more power to my nerves.

Power comes from two directions: Cells themselves seem to make some energy, which I explored last week, but found that I couldn’t really increase. Second, there’s a power source that people seem to get when they start working with magick and energy. It connects to your body and mind by what I call core. To get more power, I opened more paths through core.

I’d done the same thing years ago, when I was awakening my ethereal muscles. I needed more power to feed them all, so I learned to open core paths. If magick were about visualizing things, that would have been easy — imagining pathways opening is simple. But doing it is more complex. I had to guide my ethereal muscles through the process, figuring out which magickal structures to connect to, how to make those connections, and how to activate everything properly. It took about eight years.

This time, it was easy. I used the same technique, opened core paths to my body (instead of paths to my ethereal muscles), and was done in two days. When so much of what I do is a struggle, it was satisfying to have a quick win against a previously-hard problem.

That got more power coming into my body. I also learned to engage more of my body when I build energy.

Before, when I would connect to my stomach or groin or whatever, I’d just use whatever tissue I happened to connect to. In practice, that means only getting a fraction of the cells. This week, I practiced connecting throughout my stomach / groin / whatever, getting the whole organ, and using all the tissue within it. The result is more power, and hotter energy. And on the whole, it just feels good.

(A few weeks ago, I’d said, “I found these regions with distinctive signatures in my aura, they may be the phenomenon behind chakras.” Remember that? Well, I think these two changes may be the phenomenon behind “opening your chakras.” Not that I’d necessarily realize to do these things if someone said, “You should open your chakras.” But, knowing the answer, it seems kind of similar.)

I also practiced making energy in other signatures, to match other people, or to match my nerves in other states. It was a natural continuation of the work last week, where I broke the energy signature down into small units. Nothing to report here, except that I’m getting more precise with the signatures I make.

I wrapped up the week by taking stock of where I am and where I’m going. I’ll paste my notes, edited for clarity:

Where do I stand? And what does the basic sensations / energy orgasms technique look like?

  • I’ve set up power to my nerves, so I can build large amounts of energy. (I don’t think I’m quite building large amounts yet, but that’s a 2-day problem.)
  • I can build energy in arbitrary signatures, more or less. Certainly enough for energy orgasms and other simple sensations.
  • I can deliver that energy to their aura easily enough, and have some idea of how to deliver it deeper, into the paths to their mind.
  • And I know the basic mechanism for sensations, and which paths are involved in sensing energy.

Sounds good. What about that technique? Energy orgasms is probably:

  • Connect to the paths from aura to mind. (Easy enough.)
  • Send energy to those paths. (I can’t exactly do that yet, but that’s a 1-week problem.)
  • Build energy in my body. (Easy.)
  • Send it to their aura. (I feel like there’s some detail in how I send it where. Probably a less-than-1-week problem.)

Powering New Mental Areas (Advanced Direct Magick)

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit

Mental areas need power to perform magick.

Yesterday was about activating a new mental area.  Today is about powering them so they stay active and work smoothly.

Why Hook Up Power

New mental areas will grab power on their own.  Within a few hours, new paths will open up to feed them.

But during that time, the new mental areas will draw power from wherever they can.  Other mental areas.  Your brain.  Wherever.

The energy drain is exhausting.  Work is impossible.  I slept several hours extra each day until I learned to activate the power paths.  My girlfriend had the same experience.

Where Magickal Power Comes From

Your core paths connect the source of your magickal power (soul, Higher Self, source, whatever term you want) to your mental areas.  If your soul is your magickal heart, your core paths are the arteries, delivering lifeblood to your mental muscles.

Core paths aren’t passive.  They change the power’s signature as it approaches your mental areas.  Active core paths drive that work by absorbing a small percent of the power they’re channeling.  But unused, un-powered core paths shut down.

Inactive mental areas don’t use their core paths.  You’ll need to activate core, too.

Finding Core Paths

When I first found my core, I was looking at a mental area I’d just activated, seeing it trying to draw power, and thinking about where the power would come from.  Other mages I work with who found their core paths themselves were doing the same thing.  That’s how you should find your core, too*.

*If you work with a mage who can find his core easily, have him connect to your mental areas and show you your core.  It is easier than finding it yourself.  But it requires having a teacher on hand.

Having a visualization should help you find core.  I visualize core going up.  Power flows down into my mind like an IV drips saline into my arm.

A friend visualizes core going in.  Core is part of your mental areas like mitochondria are part of a cell.

They’re just visualizations.  Neither is entirely accurate.  Try both and see what feels natural to you.

Once you find core, practice looking at the core paths for both new mental areas and mental areas you already use.  Notice how power flows through core for mental areas you’re using.

Activating Core Paths

Core divides as it goes from your source to your mental areas.  In computer science, this layout is called a tree:

Tree diagram from computer science

Your mental areas are at the bottom of the tree.  Your source is at the top.

If you pick two mental areas and trace their core paths, they will eventually meet.

This means that, if you trace up from the inactive core path for the mental area you just activated, it will eventually meet the path of an active mental area.  That core path will have power.  You can move power just like you move energy in your body.

Once you find that active part of core, grab some power and bring it down through the core paths to the new mental area.  Once the new core paths have power flowing through them, they will turn on and stay on.  If you start having difficulty bringing power to the next step in the core path, rest for half an hour to let the newly active core paths turn on more fully.


After activating a new mental area, reach up into its core until you find power.  Bring that power through core to the mental area.  Now it has its own power and won’t drain the power for the rest of your mind and body.
