Witchcraft: Beginner Exercises
The Breath: The Basis of Magick, Energy Manipulation, and Mind Power
- Sit in a comfortable chair or lie down on a comfortable spot and relax.
- Imagine and will, with each inhale, not only your lungs are breathing, inhaling air, but also your whole body is breathing in energy. You inhale with your entire body. The breath acts as a focus for absorbing energy.
- Know that along with your lungs, each single inch of your body simultaneously absorbs energy. Like a dry sponge when dipped into water absorbs, your body should absorb energy with each inhalation.
Since everyone is individual, how each of us feels the energy will be different in some respects.
To reverse this, exhale energy out. This can make you tired and shouldn’t be done regularly other than to get a grip on how to do it.
- Exhaling energy is for empowering talismans, charging sigils, healing- anything, and everything when you want to put energy into something or to direct it.
- Energy can also be inhaled and absorbed and then directed to a specific area of your body for healing.
- In a very short time, you should be able to feel the energy when you breathe it in. As you advance, you will be able to see it without trying to visualize it.
- Feeling in this exercise is most important, especially when you are new. Do not try to see the energy as this can be a distraction. Just get a feel for it.
- This exercise is the most important for working with your mind and manipulating energy, which is the foundation of all magick.
As you advance, you can use this technique of energy absorption to absorb energy from the Sun and from just about anything you choose.
Creating an Astral Temple
Making regular use of an astral temple can increase the effectiveness of your magick and has many other uses. Astral projection is ideal, but not necessary. A deep meditative state and visualization are the keys. You should construct your temple during ritual, where you can ask Father Satan to bless it. Meditate for as long as you need to construct your own place. This should be done after the invocation where you write a request for Satan to bless and consecrate your temple. You can construct your temple any way you wish. This is your area. Visualize the outside of your temple first. This can be a pyramid or any shape you choose, and made of any materials you choose [they should be strong]. Walk through the door. This is your area. Create your own altar, carpet or floor, any size, shape or color. You can add anything to your temple that you wish. Burning lamps of fire, huge Baphomets, velvet walls of red, blue, or black, seats with cushions lining the walls for meeting with Demons, huge golden or silver incense burners - these are just a few ideas.
This is your very own private inner place where you are free. The more you visit this place, the stronger it will become. When finished, you can invite your Guardian Demon and any other Demons you have relationships with to see it.
Uses for your astral temple:
•Meditation [all kinds and astral work]
•Telepathic communication with other human beings Meeting with Demons
•You should first know the Demon you wish to meet with and have a relationship with him/her. Here is a place where you can communicate and ask questions.
You can also go there and focus on certain issues requiring psychic ability or communicate telepathically. To communicate telepathically with another human being, go to your temple at a time when he/she is sleeping and ’will’ his/her soul to your temple. Do this by visualization. When he/she is present, if you wish to influence him/her, separate his/her soul drawing out the light body and speak to the light body, giving short commands in the present tense.
If you wish to discuss something of importance, speak as you would as if he/she is actually sitting across from you. You can also tell him/her that he/she will not remember the actual meeting taking place when he/she awakens, but will obey all commands.
For those of you who are underage and/or cannot perform any formal ceremonial rites, an astral temple is ideal for this sort of thing. Also those who are underage can perform their dedication to Satan there. Satan understands this and it is just as valid as the formal dedication ceremony. When you are of age as an adult, you can complete this by performing the actual full ceremony.
Preparation for the ritual
What you need:
- Material to make a poppit
- A small personal belonging of the individual you wish to bind [that can be sewn inside of the poppit]
- A long enough piece of dark blue material or ribbon to bind the poppit like a mummy.
- A nail and a tree to hang the poppit from
- You can use herbs to fill the poppit if the article is not large enough or does not fit the form of the poppit. Adding cloves will act to “still the tongue”. Remember- herbs have no real power of their own, other than medicinal properties. To maximize the power of the herb/s, they must be infused with the elements. *See Important Info About Herbs
- Herbs to add can include one or more of the following:
- Dragon’s Wort
- St John’s Wort
The binding ritual
All of the above herbs are ruled by the planet Saturn. Saturn is the planet of binding. This ritual is best performed during a full Moon. When you are finished stuffing and sewing the poppit, mark it to represent the person you wish to bind. Draw the individual’s face as best you can- facial hair, if any, glasses- this does not have to be perfect, or paste a photo of the person onto the poppit. Now sew up the mouth with intent. Vibrate ISA into it 108 times.
Place your poppit on your altar and begin a standard ritual. After invoking the Crowned Princes of Hell, state: “I present [name] to be bound. What I do to this image, I do to [name].” Now pick the poppit up and begin winding the material/ribbon around the poppit beginning at the mouth, like a mummy, leaving one leg unbound [so you can hang it]. When finished, place it again on your altar and recite the following:
“[Name] is bound; he/she is unable to speak against me. [Name] is bound; he/she is unable to act against me. [Name] is bound; he/she is unable to harm me in any way.
Close the ritual, now go outside, or if you already are outside- go to a tree where the poppit can be nailed by the unbound foot and hung upside down in the image of the Tarot Card of the Hanged Man.*
This card represents at a standstill, inactivity, one in suspension; one left hanging. Nail the poppit where it will not be disturbed or easily seen. Give thanks to the Powers of Hell and leave the poppit.
*This step of the ritual [how to hang the poppit], was given to me from Azazel.
To incite love or lust, sexual orgasm is used and is directed into the soul of the desired one. This ideally should be done often and when he or she is asleep. Stimulate yourself to climax by fantasizing over the desired one. At the moment of climax, visualize the energy lighting up his/her entire body and aura and command it with an affirmation. The affirmation should be short, in the present tense and to the point. For example: "[name of desired one] is deeply in love with me and desires me sexually."
To further empower the spell, go into a trance and when he/she preferably is sleeping, visualize his/her and pull out his/her light body and gently but firmly command it. For example: "[name of desired one], you love me and desire me greatly, every day. You find me totally irresistible."
The more often you do this, the better. This may also have to be reinforced every so often.
Breaking up a couple
To break up a couple or to deter a potential interest, you would put an aura of revulsion around the person you wish to isolate. For example, "[name of person]’s aura is repelling all of [name of person interested or in love with] interests, affection and attraction in every way. [Name of person] is revolting and repulsive to [name of person interested or in love with]." You infuse the energy into the aura of the person you want to keep isolated from the one who has an interest. You get the basic idea. One’s aura will act on the other and create an indifference, or even enmity. It can take a lot of energy, but in breaking up a couple, you can do this to each of their auras so that they find each other disgusting and break up.
The Aura and How to Use It
Everything has an aura, whether it is living or inanimate. The aura is an energy field created by the vibrating atoms and molecules that comprise all matter. The universe itself vibrates to a certain frequency and the gravity that holds everything together is electromagnetic in nature.
Everyone’s aura is as unique as his or her own fingerprints. No two auras are alike. The aura can be used to protect, attract, influence, maim, or even kill. This field of bioelectricity surrounding living things can be programmed using the power of one’s mind. Those who are trained and have an active third eye can see auras clearly and discern much personal information just by reading the color, strength, size and shape of one’s aura.
Seeing, feeling, strengthening and cleaning your Aura
To see your own aura, you should start out by going into a light trance state. You should have already opened your third eye. Hold your hand out in front of you, preferably against a dark background. In the beginning, you should be able to see some faint lines surrounding your hand and fingers. The more you tune into this, like anything else, [practice and persistence are needed here], the better you will become. The better you become at seeing your own aura, you soon will be able to see the auras of others, by just tuning in to them. Later on, you will be able to see colors, layers, and shapes.
Feeling auras is much easier than seeing them. Power meditation, when done consistently, increases one’s sensitivity to energy. Manipulation of energy is essential in working spells and magick. To feel your aura, run one of your hands over the top of the other, or over your forearm. You should feel the energy. You can also practice feeling the auras of friends and family members if they are interested in letting you do so. This will develop your touch sensitivity.
To strengthen and build your aura, you must take in energy. This can be done through power meditation. The Energy Meditation is excellent for charging up your aura. Hatha [physical] Yoga and Tai Chi also help to strengthen and build the aura. Both of these disciplines tend to balance the energies the aura as well.
Cleaning your aura is very important. A clean healthy aura strengthens the immune system and prevents harmful energies from invading one’s body. Nearly all harmful entities are invisible to the naked eye. Energies, as most physicists know, can be broken down into sub-atomic particles, foe example, light can be broken down into photons. The energy radiated by a powerful aura will burn these harmful energies and entities up before they can do any harm.
Cleaning your aura [with powerful white-gold light] is imperative after any rituals involving the employment of black magick, throwing any curses, no matter how small, on the spur of the moment, or any exercise involving the use of negative or destructive energy. One’s chakras should also be cleaned and empowered. This is done by putting a strong and intense white light on each chakra. This is needed to rid one’s self of any residual negative energies that could otherwise do harm. This also prevents rebounding energies. Always take as much time as you need; never be in a hurry. Prevention is always better than having to deal with problems later on.
A powerful aura gives health, happiness, charisma, and energy. People with weak auras are usually in poor health and are depressed. Our personal energies act on our environments and direct our fate. People who have weak auras are usually prone to misfortune.
Programming the Aura
The aura can be programmed with hypnosis. Read the page on hypnosis to make maximum use of the following workings. Now, with dealing with the aura and subconscious mind, one must always be 100% clear on every aspect of what is desired. With love, we don’t want one who is unavailable. With money, we don’t want it to come to us through tragedy- this sort of thing. When working with the mind and soul, energy takes the quickest and easiest route to bring us the desired result and if every aspect isn’t covered, any undirected energy will seek out whatever is available. Color is especially important when programming the aura. Below are examples of how we can effectively program our auras to do things. Remember to always state your affirmations in the present tense as the subconscious mind and soul do not understand “will”. Visualize and feel it as it has already happened and is in the present.
You want love in your life:
Visualize your aura while you are in a trance, the deeper the better. Breathe in energy and affirm several times in the present tense:
“My aura is attracting my perfect [love/sexual partner, soul mate, whatever].” Change the affirmation to suit your own individual needs. Affirm this with meaning, five- ten times while breathing in energy.
To attract the love/lust and or attentions of a specific person:
Affirm: “I am programming my aura to attract and act on _________’s, aura. He/she finds me very attractive and sexually irresistible.”
You want/need protection:
Breathe in powerful white-gold light. With the inhale breathe it in to meet in the middle of your body, packing it in brighter and brighter. With the exhale, keep expanding it. The energy should grow brighter and brighter.
Affirm: “My aura is very powerful and is protecting me at all times.”
This a good exercise to be done on a regular basis, for building a strong, protective energy field.
You want to make a good impression:
A powerful aura will often influence others to grant you favors.
Affirm: “My aura is making a very positive impression on _______.” If this is a job interview, [“the person/s interviewing me tomorrow”, whatever]. “The people hearing my presentation, the group”, etc. Always state this in the present tense. The subconscious mind does not understand the word “will” and “will” never comes.
For keeping unwanted individuals away:
Breathe in white light like the Sun. White light reflects and repels.
“My aura is repelling, [inspire fear/dread] in _______, and keeping ________ far away from me at all times.”
To heal yourself:
A lot of energy is needed for healing. Breathing in energy from the Sun is excellent for empowering one’s aura. The Sun also contains all of the colors of the chakras in their most pure and vibrant states. The Sun  is one of the most powerful sources of energy there is. When one is ill, there is an imbalance in the chakras ruling the body part/s that are injured or ill. To heal, you must work with both the color of the ruling chakra and its opposite to create a balance.
Breathe in the color of the energy of the chakra ruling the injured or ill body part and affirm:
“I am breathing in __[name of color]__ energy that is balancing my __chakra__ and healing my _______.”
When you are finished, breathe in white energy to balance your aura.
The auras of others can also be worked with and programmed.
From reading the above, you should by now be getting the idea and able to improvise your own affirmations.
To protect loved ones:
Put a powerful white-gold light around the person. For more powerful workings, this is best done in a deep trance.
Affirm: “I am placing a powerful protective aura around ______.” This should be done regularly, and can be done while the loved one sleeps. This is best done during a waxing moon [from a new moon to a full moon] as the energies will amplify as the moon keeps increasing in light. To be very strong, perform this working every day, affirming 10 times.
For inciting lust:
Put a powerful red or orange aura around the person.
“_________ is experiencing irresistible sexual obsession, desire/lust for me.” “_________ finds me sexually irresistible.” You can masturbate using sex magick and drive the energy into the desired one’s aura. This is best begun on a Sunday or Tuesday during a waxing Moon. Never do this when the Moon is in the celibate sign of Virgo, though.
For inciting love:
Put a powerful green aura around the person. Feel strong feelings of love as you program it.
“_______ is falling deeply and uncontrollably in love with me.”
“_________ is obsessed with me”, etc. You can also use sex magick here as with the working above. This is best begun on a Friday during a waxing Moon.
Visualize a powerful white-gold aura surrounding and glowing about the loved one. You should also use color energy [see the above paragraph on healing for one’s self]
Affirm: “I am putting powerful healing energy into ______’s aura; this energy is effectively fighting the _______ and restoring him/her to perfect health.” In cases of serious illness, this may have to be done often every day. Healing others can be extremely draining. If you are inexperienced, remote healing is best. Direct contact as with the hand chakras applying energy directly to the afflicted one can be dangerous. The illness can be absorbed into the healer. To do this type of direct work, one must have a powerful aura and work to clean it thoroughly after each healing session. Using the energy of the Sun is most effective here.
BLACK MAGICK AND KILLING
This is best done while the offending party is asleep. Put a black aura around the person, as this will prepare his or her own aura to absorb the destructive energy. After doing this, you can vent your hatred. Be sure to visualize over and over again with feeling, exactly how you intend this person to die.
“I am placing a powerful aura of destructive around ______ that is continuously working to kill him/her.” This work is best begun on a Saturday or a Tuesday during a waning Moon. Be sure to clean your aura and chakras following each working.
To cause bad luck and/or harm:
If your own aura is powerful enough, just sitting and stewing about the person should be enough. I have found it is important to visualize repeatedly in a relaxed, but angry way a specific misfortune.
With all workings of black magick the outcome depends on the strength of the auras involved. The aura of the victim *must* be weaker than that of the sorcerer. If the victim’s aura is more powerful, the working could rebound as a more powerful aura naturally deflects negative energy. Some people just have naturally powerful auras. This can come from past lives. If an offending person naturally has a more powerful aura, you will be able to feel resistance. Take the time to build your own aura before doing any kind of this sort of working.

Aura Of Protection
This meditation is very important. It is simple and the more you do this, the more powerful the protective aura becomes.
- Breathe in white-gold energy* as you would with the energy foundation meditation. You don't need to go into a deep trance with this. Just concentrate on *feeling* the energy enter your being on each inhale and then visualize a powerful brilliant light, like the Sun becoming brighter and brighter with each exhalation. Once you get this going, it becomes very easy and takes little time.
- Affirm: "I am breathing in powerful protective energy. This energy is building an aura of protection around me. This aura protects me at all times in every way." Say this to yourself five times for five inhales. After this, just concentrate on visualizing and feeling the energy, making it more and more brighter and powerful.
This will program the energy and also program your aura. After several days of doing this exercise, you can say the affirmation once or twice, instead of five, as it will already be programmed into your aura.
Ways to increase protection
The more you do this, you will build a more and more powerful protective aura. Use the energy from the Sun as well. Energy from the Sun is extremely powerful. When doing this, just add: "I am breathing in powerful protective energy from the sun. This energy is building an aura of protection around me. This aura protects me at all times in every way."
*White-gold energy is used because it is reflective. You can also program your aura so you breathe in protective energy from the Sun (extremely powerful) when you are outside. After the first few times, you don't even have to visualize anything. You can just feel this and you don't have to be in a trance for it to work- you will feel it. I am to where I just consciously breathe in energy and I can do it easily at any time - with no trance or visualization.
Another important thing you can do to protect yourself and remain safe is to affirm 5-10 times before you go to sleep:
"I am always totally safe and protected in every way." Never doubt this! The aura of protection will also help to clean your aura and repel any negative energy. This is very important.
You can also visualize loved ones and breathe energy into their aura to protect them. Just go into a trance and visualize whoever you want to protect and breathe in energy as outlined in the link above and then breathe it out into the aura of the one you wish to protect and follow the same procedure, only apply it to this other person. This can also be done for healing purposes.
