    The power of Giving: Practical Methods That Change Realities.

    In some of the oldest traditions of spirituality, we are taught to "give what we want"- this is often why we offered up meats, food and even money to our Gods. These acts were not only for special sacrifices, but also for reciprocity and practical magick.

    A "blessing" is more than just the invoking of spiritual power- it is that and much more. Ironically, blessing is the most affordable act of magick and spiritual power, yet it is often done the least.

    And since we blame religion for everything, let us add that one to the list as well. Because of our beliefs- we have become biased about who we should bless or who should be blessed. What we have not realized is that "blessing" has more to do with you than that other person, just as the animal and Human sacrifices of old had more to do with those cultures and people than the Gods they worshiped.

    Truth be told, this is why there will always be wars on this planet- this is one of the only ways the powers that be have figured out how to "bless" themselves.

    Let us remind ourselves that regardless of our degree of consciousness, religion, wealth or education- as Black and African people we are all blessed, and as we go further into this thread we will understand why and how.

    "Give what you want" is the core magickal principle behind blessing. It's so simple- even the Town fool could pull it off. Simple, but there are many variables and creative techniques that can be used, once we understand the basics- then the advanced levels materialize on their own.

    There are about 3 types of basic blessings. First we have the thoughtform blessing that works off psychic energy. That's your basic prayer, words of courage etc, even words that are written in a forum can become blessings. The 2rd type is material blessing, the giving of an object, money, charms etc. The 3rd type of blessing is the doing of a task- a ritual, going to church or even taking out the trash are forms of performance blessings to the self.

    Now all 3 of these are actually the same. It's just that 2 and 3 are containers for our original thoughtform and intent. We issue blessings and curses all time to each other using our minds, that same energy of life is contained in what we say, what we give and what we do.

    In the old, when people were living a higher spirit reality- we knew that we would record our thoughtform energy into most elements like water, stones, metal and crystals. The gift of a crystal that has been held by a person who knows how to channel the perfect energy into that crystal is worth more than all the money in the world.

    more to come.....

    Hotep Brother Meta:

    I think these represent forms of worship... when u worship that is made manifest....

    there is no want in the divine spirit... no ego...

    only love

    just love

    love

    alone

    that's the magic ...

    just my humble experience.

    the act of love affords the honor to give

    This post makes me think tricksees! Lol, did you do a Matt Parkman move when I wasn’t looking God MS? Yesterday, I was going to do a ritual on behalf of someone who had wronged me, but the ego took over and I decided not to. Now given the above statement, I am wondering if I should have, but then again, wouldn’t I have been a hypocrite to do it if my heart wasn’t in it and the original thought form and intent was anything but a blessing? Sighs, until you respond, I shall be in the corner engaging in a spot of self-flagellation.

    Goddess Miss Lady you are so right because love is very powerful magick for those of us that use it correctly and honestly. Because ultimately all spirits want love, thus we are following that "give what you want" rule when we learn how to offer up that powerful force. We must learn however that there are many ways of giving that force, sometimes Women want Men to say "I love you" but saying I love you is not pure love, that is in fact is a spell, a spell Women want the Man to invoke on them. "Tell me you love me" is a Woman asking for that Man to invoke a spell on her mind. Now saying it does produce love, but within the Woman. The emotion of love is different than the reality of love. The reality is stronger. Men protect what they love- just as most Women nurture what they love. Love is indeed a powerful blessing.

    Goddess Alex, I find it remarkable that you mentioned self-flagellation. I wanted to post something about why this was shown in the movie "The DaVinci Code" where the Monk Silus punished himself to death as a way to be able to kill. We can get into that later.

    I am creating this thread based upon some studies I've been doing of some real people, the pattern of the "recession?" has made it easy for me to see what types of "magick" are working and for whom. I've found the most practical level of magick- giving out blessings- to be working very effectively at this time.

    I've known an Elder Brotha for years that run his own magazine publishing company, now- for years I've seen him do this- and it's not until recently after studying it from a metaphysical level that I've realized why it works and while so many magazine printers are going out of business- this Man is getting more business than ever.

    He allows certain people to use his business as their place of employment for their creditors. He even gives out fake job references to help certain people get jobs. He even told me a story once that when he was younger all he needed to get his perfect job was a few job references and no one would help him.

    I tell you, the Man keeps a long list of names next to the phone for his receptionist to check. I always thought it was crazy for anyone to have that much passion about something so "deceptive." But when I started to break down the meta-mathematics on it...it made sense.

    What he is doing is helping people to get jobs and even credit. Sure- there are allot of creditors calling there when the people don't pay up also- BUT- the act itself- is not for them but for him and his business. In return his magazine publishing business get a healthy amount of work.

    Why would I credit the success of his business with such a major but small act? Because he doesn't do it for money, he does it for a blessing. And that's how you know, when people say- oh no- that's all right- you don't have to pay me. That means they are expecting a payment but in a different form.

    The trick is, a blessing has to be seen as a blessing and not a payment. Like giving a homeless person some change is not really a blessing to them, they are thankful for it, it's nice- but homeless people are use to getting nothing but change. Now give a homeless person $100 bill- that's a blessing. Still, you may not want to give a homeless person $100. In a sense- you want to give that "blessing" to someone that represents the condition you are in.

    I recall the ritual Goddess Alex spoke about where you as a homeless person?

    I know a Brotha, as thug-minded as you could imagine, was in prison a few times- but very intelligent. He told me he dresses up as clown and goes down to some center on the weekends. He does it for free. He told me he used to have problems with the police all the time until after he started doing that. I was killing myself trying to figure out the math behind that one. A Clown? Entertaining children? For free?? But why would the Police stop messing with him after that? How did dressing up as a Clown change his reality?

    I could only imagine that being Clown and entertaining children brings joy, laughter and happiness into their lives- as well as his- obviously he enjoys doing it. That act of giving children is a better life- has given him a better life, which means he is not bothered by police- which most likely stressed out his life. Also the obvious part is that being around children has inspired him in a different direction.

    There are some qualities of life or consciousness that are so abstract and complicated it's difficult to design the right "giving rituals" to get them. For those we look to actual objects or art that we can give to friends and family as gifts of power. Many companies keep a budget for art buying because some of them have come to understand the value of it goes way beyond an investment or tax write-off. At that point you are dealing directly with the spirit world, and that of course depends on the artist.

    A knowledge about gemstones, crystals, colors and even animals also help to present the perfect blessing for changing our reality. Thoughtforms can be fused into stones, silver, gold- coins etc. And especially in food and clay.

    Sculpey and polymer clay are two mediums I highly recommend for fusing psychic energy and intent in order to create a blessing. You don't have to be a major artist either, the same can be done here as far as automatic drawing it can be automatic sculpting too. Whatever comes out, just call it abstract art. It's just like kneading flour.

    What I've tried to do recently, I'm trying to summon more animal spirits in my world. I was automatic sculpting one day and I kept saying to myself "bring me the wisdom of my Ancestors" and by the time I looked down the clay was starting to look like an Elephant, so I continued the work until it was an Elephant.

    If I were to paint the Elephant a specific color, again- to reflect my intent- blue- and then give it as a blessing to someone that would appreciate it, most likely my intent will begin to manifest soon after. Of course you could also buy these animals already created and bless them yourself. Wash the object in clean salt water, and dress it with olive oil or any "spiritual oil" you are familiar with, use your intent to bath it down. Remember this blessing is for you, but it will be given to someone else.

    [​IMG]
    Remember they say "it's the thought that counts"
    Giving the blessing of an Elephant is also the giving of wisdom, wealth, strength and longevity.

    There are several sites that teach about animal spirits and what they can be used for.

    My dear God Brother Meta:

    So right you are..

    there have been times when as a woman not fully understanding that we don't make love .. we make life.. that i have asked a young man...

    "don't you even love me" ...

    when i should have been asking myself....

    "don't you love yourself"...

    to acknowledge to myself what love is not....

    the reality...

    i was surrounded by wicca and catholism... hypocrisy shielded by religion...

    sometimes we fall victim to our surroundings.... and in that we come to realize the power of love...

    there is even no freedom in wanting someone to love themself...

    because everyone already has the capability to define whatever it is they do love....

    i love you brother meta ...

    because you help me to love myself

    And loving you Goddess Miss Lady is loving myself- to create that reality of love, we cipher and build upon our collective experience. That level of giving can become so profound that no words can describe it. When we know the self, we can recognize the self from afar, even in different people. We have all made a promise to find each other if the other became lost- and this is why many of us are here now, finding each other.

    Just as many have found me and have loved me by giving up their blessings all I can do now is return the favor.
    Our African natives say "a person is a person through other persons." Meaning we learn how to be through each other, and as more of us position ourselves as examples, as we led our experience, insight and perspective- that is a love that is the most difficult to resist. We would rather go hungry than escape that form of giving. Through this cipher I come Man and thru this Man I become God and thru this God I become this cipher.

    It is indeed a blessing to led something to the awakening of Gods and Goddesses........

    um

    um what if you didn't have "material" to give for type 2, couldn't you "give"
    your heart?

    for type 3 you couldn't just let's say do a ritual helping older people,
    senior citizens?
