    How Dare You Learn How To Master Your Own Reality! The Nerve!

    What is this "magick" so many people are speaking about these days all over the internet? Why does it seem so important now to the Africans in America- more than ever before? Two words.

    It works.

    The new found spark in occult topics and pagan ideologies has even bought mainstream christian media to ask the question "Is Christianity Dead?" As well, it has promoted the idea that we are indeed living in the last days. The question is- this last days for who?

    But really, what is this magick? For many Africans in America- it is a return to our true spiritual rites on this soil called Earth. It is the power that was denied from us. For many it is a medium for embracing the spirit world and our hidden Gods and Goddesses within. It is a means of controlling the powers of the physical Universe as they were designed for our minds to interface with them.

    There are many forms of magick, as there are interpretations of what magick is or what it should be used for. Yet most common forms of magick are very practical and ritualistic. It is the science of mind as well as a spiritual science of psychic deployment. Some believe that true magick is accomplished through a recipe of key physical ingredients, while others work their spiritcraft by will alone. There is really no such thing as weak magick, but there are weak minds that use magick.

    The stronger the mind, the more likely even the most practical and simple forms of magick will work. Such people have the audacity to use those methods to change their lives and the reality around them.

    Those of us who are very religious, committed to our ideas about God, Jesus, Allah, Yahweh- etc., would be displeased by the subject of magick in the sense that it goes beyond our current belief system. Again, there are many levels of magick. When we absorb the true meaning of what magick is, we may find that magick is used in just about everything that concerns the mind and spirit. Praise, worship and even prayer are forms of magick.

    We may not want to accept that in order to section ourselves off from the rites that appear Satanic or against God. But this thread is not about what religious people believe magick to be. We are all free to decide what our reality is all about- so there is "The Audacity of Hope" as well as "The Audacity of Hocus Pocus"....everyone has a "rite" to master their own reality.

    Now. Some of us have been studying African history for a very long time. Yet even knowing that our true culture and spirituality was raped from us and the false Gods of our oppressors were put in it's place- such Scholars of study still have the nerve to ask- what will all this magick do for African people?

    The same thing it has done for the Afrocentric that has no idea why he has an African drum in the corner of his room. He watches as all his friends lose their jobs and houses but he still has his job and his house. He will find himself going to an Afrocentric Christian Church without realizing that it is the energy of his Ancestors that are being magnetized and attracted by that drum in the corner of the room. They visit him and watch over him- they aide in the influence of his reality making sure he is provided for and sheltered.

    What the Asians would call Feng Shui, for African people is "geomancy"- a form of magick and divination that interprets patterns on the ground and drawing, how objects are laid out can attract certain types of energy into our space. So many African people practice this and don't even know why. Ironically the Bible gives no so instructions about placing the Bible on the dashboard for protection. Also a type of magick. Fa and Ifa are also forms of geomancy. Astrology would be cosmic geomancy.

    Even speaking, talking, writing and reading are forms of magick.

    We worship sounds and symbols. Everything that is "read" makes a sound. And this is also another way that we are deceived, reading might be fundamental but it is designed also to deceive the mind into working unconscious magic and mind control. Take the fact that millions of Muslims all around the world worship the Goddess of Death- Ala.
    Harmonic speaking as a mastery for great orators is a form of hypnotic magick.

    Are we here in this world to worship the Magicians-Moses, Jesus, Prophet Muhammad, The Buddah- without learning magick ourselves? Who has come to be called "prophet" without the use of magick?

    If the Kabbalah is the dark side of Judaism, what then- is the dark side of Christianity and Islam?

    God Metasaience,

    Where can one learn more about African Geomancy? or will what is written in Caucasian/Asian sites/books suffice as an introduction?

    Thank ye,

    Alexandra

    By the way Brother MS, I read more about Storm aka Ororo , and how her ancestral roots were in Kenya. I thought that was interesting and can't wait to read the whole book.

    Yes Goddess Alex- Storm is a very powerful character, and I imagine you would enjoy more about her story seeing as how you love changing the climate around these parts also. I will add that Halle Berry was a horrible pick for Storm's character -Goddess Storm in the comic books is a voluptuous Woman.

    Tyra Banks has always been a "Storm" in her own right...

    Don't let me become a casting director! I'd get the job done!

    As far as "African Geomancy" there so many texts online about that right now, I believe there's a book called "Earth Divination" that breaks it down, or there are some books out there about astrological geomancy. I myself learned it directly from my Mother, my Aunts would call her a neat freak because she always wanted things to be placed in a certain order and location and if you dare moved it you'd have hell to pay.

    Consciously we tell ourselves that some of the objects in our space are there for decoration. There is no such thing as decoration for the Universe or the subconscious mind. That's like the stars being in a certain place just for decoration. What I've learned is that placement of two like objects parallel to each other creates a line.

    That's the part in geomancy that usually confuses people, how do you draw with objects? That's how. A line manipulates and changes the flow of energy. Certain objects host their own level of power like the drum I spoke about or even the television. Those can be called vortexes. The human head, the television and the computer monitor are like objects. The human head is also vortex of images and sounds.

    The relationship between these vortexes creates a pathway or flow of energy between them. Those pathways are also called leylines or grid marks. In ancient geomancy the divination methods created those lines as drawings in the sand, walls or in objects like claypots.

    The goal of geomancy when used as a method to invite certain types of energies or spirits is too create a place of contenment and peace, or a place of higher creative mind and thought. I've known couples to completely change their lives- stop fighting and arguing just by changing around the objects in the house and adding objects that bring peace to the subconscious.

    The Human body is very geomantric and should be treated as such. Elders with high blood pressure issues will find it calming to add a large fish tank into the house. The fish tank represents the circulatory system- the flow of blood and even the pumping of the heart. Before fish tanks the rivers symbolized this for us, it's hard to get a river flowing in the home these days.
    But I heard Mc Hammer managed to pull it off.

    A book shelf fill with books of several different topics near the kitchen or even in the kitchen create the food for intellectuals. What might sound like hocus pocus is just a higher science for mastering this holograph we call the Universe.

    Don't shy away from those cheap statues from Tjmaxx or Walmart either.

    So in a nutshell, African geomancy is the science of "drawing out" certain energies within ourselves or within the vortexes around us through positioning, direction and location of objects to create invisible lines. You draw in your physical space with like objects, the trick is seeing what those objects have in common and creating a pattern of flow within the space.

    When we change the flow of energy, we also alter our mind's perception of reality.

    They took the Yoni symbol, flipped it sideways and called it a Jesus Fish.
    Go figure.

    True indeed Magick is everywhere....and yes I TOTALLY agree Halle Barry was a terrible choice for storm....Storm was not at all soft and was voluptuous.....I always have said Angela Bassett would have done a much better job at this.....

    One of my reasons for leaving Destee half a year ago was to delve completely into darkness to learn about the underworld, myself and to start practicing....not blowing my own horn but that had to have been one of the wisest decisions I have ever made.....its funny DG MS you mentioned science of the mind because I just mentioned this the other day although the way I put it was "mind science".....I teach my son on a constant basis that the most powerful thing he will ever own is his mind which is why I persistently encourage him to read.....

    I feel so at home with magick and the use of it.....once I incorporated voodoo drums into rituals it was like I came full circle....

    I have never felt so enchanted and content in all my life...truly a good feeling to embrace the ancestors....embrace our lost art...and effect changes within the environment....


    Oh dark ones master this reality it is yours to master!

    DarkGod GeorgeM you have certainly mastered that level of "self-mind control" I was speaking about in the other thread seeing that you know how to use your music!

    I've been followed lately by different animals in my astrals, so I'm beginning to understand how animals play a major role as far as indicating to you what level you are on as far as your magick is concerned.

    I've been flipping through this book here- and has provided me with allot of very interesting explanations.

    Animal Magick: The Art of Recognizing & Working with Familiars
    By D. J. Conway
    [​IMG]

    This book states that in Egypt the Dog was a symbol for Amenti- the Great Mother. I used to see black dobermans all the time in my dreams when I was younger. Animal spirits are treated as magicians also. Religions speak about Angels but these beings aren't the highest of the mystical creatures out there. Angels are only messengers and most people think all beings that work interdimensionally are Angels.

    D.J Conway also has another one called "Magickal, mystical creatures."

    I saw in my astral a giant serpent made of gold or colored orange with a black feather in it's mouth. There's even magick in the very names we give things. Consider the name "Damballa" which is for the serpent Deity in Vodou.
    The www.damballa.com is for virus protection. "Targeted protection against targeted attacks."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damballa_(company)

    Only in America could Whites take the names of our Deities and use them for their own wealth. Well..America, Europe, Canada, China...What? Jesus isn't powerful enough to fight computer viruses?

    The good thing about magick is that all magick is tailored for the individual based upon our level of understanding and the power of our will.
