Mind state training is one of those topics that many budding magickians overlook. Ironically, it’s probably the most important part of magickal training because mind state is a foundational skill for pretty much all occult practice.
So, I made a short video to help people to practice getting into a certain mental state (read below for instructions on how to use it):
This video helps you to get into a mental state that E.A. Koetting refers to as the theta-gamma sync. He refers to it as this because he believes that the ideal mental state for magickal operations is both down into a trance/altered state and up into a heightened state of consciousness. And while this seems odd at first, this is actually common and attainable. It’s just not a state that most people go into on purpose.
However, the video is not going to radically change your life after one view. The point of it is to get yourself used to entering the theta-gamma sync. Once you’re able to do that, you’re able to do a lot higher level magick than you could before. The point of this video is to train your mind to more easily enter this state throughrepeat viewing and work.
How To Use This Mind State Training
To use this mind state training, all you need to do is meditate and watch the video. Your mind itself will do most of the work to match its state to that of the tones. They encourage your mind to enter certain states naturally.
But to really get started all your need to do is simply situate yourself to meditate, begin getting into the state, then turn the video on. Feel free to watch it as many times in a row as you’d like, just know that each time you watch it, it’s going to encourage your mind to return to a normal waking state before going into the theta-gamma sync.
If you practice meditation already, use your favorite method.
A Simple Meditation To Use
If you don’t practice meditation, you really need to in order to ascend–at least as a magickian. The easiest meditation to start with is called breath counting. To do this meditation, you just need to count your breaths up to four, then return to one. In other words, breathe in and out, count one. Then repeat three times. On the fifth breath, restart counting back to one.
The hardest part of this meditation, at least for me, is returning my thoughts back to one after four. Sometimes, I get too spacey and find myself counting somewhere around 15-25. Not a big deal, just catch yourself and reset back to one. As with all meditation, the point is training your mind, not to be the most amazing meditator ever.
You need to just get started and see what happens and where you’re at. Once you see where you’re at, then you can more accurately judge personal growth by looking at where you were and where you are today. It’s kind of like working out: you want to see how far you can go and take it one session at a time.
Why Do Mind State Training?
Many new magickians overlook this or think it’s a waste of time–I know I did–but the mind state training is one of the most important things you can do to further yourself as a magickian. Yes, it’s tedious at first. Yes, it takes concerted effort, but it’s also the foundational skill of occult practice.
If you cannot meditate, enter the right states, and stay there throughout the ritual, you’re not going to get very far actually practicing magick. And that’s a fact.
So, the real reason to do mind state training is that this is going to revolutionize your magickal practice day by day.
How Often Should You Do Mind State Training?
How often you do mind state training is ultimately up to you. I think you should do it at least three times a week, but preferably everyday. The strongest magickians are the ones who practice this stuff daily.
The interesting thing about magickal “power” is that it often develops very slowly at first (and even later on), but in hindsight, a massive growth curve can be seen. In other words, you’ll probably need to practice this mind state stuff for awhile before you realize the real results of it, but once you do, you’ll see it as foundational.
At this point, I’ve beat this horse to tiny pieces. So, I hope you use this audio/video to practice getting into the right mind states. If you do this for awhile, you’ll be happy you did–if you want to be a powerful magickian that is…
