Week 1: Softening the Boundaries by Tuning the Senses

ePub

SOFTENING THE BOUNDARIES BY TUNING THE SENSES

“Hark how the little birds sing of love,” sang the old lady on the park bench.

“That's aggression, not love! They're staking a territorial claim when they make that noise,” sneered the acne-scarred youth by her side.

Why did he say that? Was the fleeting intellectual triumph really worth the effort? See how quickly the old dear has forgotten his remark and returned to blissful contemplation! But does he look any happier for his knowledge?

They live in two quite different models of reality. Society would call him ”strong-minded', but he bears his reality like an irritating burden, whereas she has disciplined the world into a cornucopia of joy. Should we not then admit that, though not so strong in mind, she is at least the stronger in soul?

The above quote comes from a book I wrote called Thundersqueak (1979). It reflects a conflict between puritanism and sensitivity.

ARE YOU A PURITAN? OR A GOURMET?

When, for example, I read some glossy magazine article extolling the fine difference between one sort of gourmet delicacy and another, or immensely flowery descriptions of the precise impression that a certain wine leaves on the refined palate, then something in me may protest that so much time and money is being spent on expensive delicacies when there are millions of people on this planet who cannot even afford enough food to stay alive.

 

Week 2: A Sense of Place

ePub

A SENSE OF PLACE

In the first lesson we began by exploring very subtle sensory data—sounds sights, tastes, smells and feelings that we know to exist but are usually too subtle to be noticed or acknowledged.

In that first lesson we deliberately didn't try to go for clairvoyant or psychic perception, because that might provoke resistance from the rational parts of our mind. The other reason was that, if we did get clairvoyant phenomena early on, they could excite our curiosity so much that we would be tempted to concentrate on those results rather than learn to open up to all impressions.

This week we go a little further, building on last week's last exercise to see how well we can read subtle bodily reactions.

You know how you can sometimes walk into a place or situation and think, “This feels bad (or good)”? If the bad atmosphere feeling is strong enough, it might put you on your guard, or even make you decide to get out. We now want to extend awareness and look a little deeper into those hunches and see if we can develop them further.

 

Week 3: Dowsing and Divining

ePub

DOWSING AND DIVINING

In Weeks 1 and 2 we explored the direct perception of sensory stimuli at the edge of normal conscious awareness, pushing the boundaries by looking for subtle information (such as slight acoustic changes or a feeling of place) that would normally be screened out by reason and convention. After all, who would want the embarrassment of being the only person standing up in a formal concert? Or who would go hungry rather than be seated in “someone else's place” in a restaurant? Rather than acting on such subtle preferences, we go along with the crowd and prefer to act normally.

The result is that we do not ask these questions, such as “Where do I really want to sit?” because the answer might be inconvenient or embarrassing. Have you noticed how awkward it can be sometimes when one person is over-helpful and, rather than simply letting everyone sit down as they arrive, they make a big fuss about, “Wouldn't you rather sit here with the nice view?” Mostly, we'd rather just move with the crowd than make a big thing about small preferences.

 

Week 4: Playing with Tarot

ePub

PLAYING WITH TAROT

When I named the original Arcanorium course “Clairvoyance For The Non-Psychic”, it was not so much that I believed some people to be psychic and some not, but rather that some are less sensitive to intuition or “psychic” information than others.

From my experience, the reason for being less sensitive seems to be that other faculties drown out or overwhelm the psychic data, rather than there being no psychic data to work on. For some people it might be strong feelings that overwhelm the psychic messages: for example, there are religious people who feel that anything psychic is diabolic, and this feeling is so strong that it blocks psychic impressions. I did not expect that reaction from anyone who chose to study an Arcanorium course, but I did expect some of them to have interference from the rational mind. People attracted to chaos or “post modern” magick often approach from a rational standpoint, and that was why I put so much emphasis in the first three weeks on building a more co-operative relationship between the busy mind and intuitive impressions.

 

Week 5: Devas, Auras - The Great Arcanum

ePub

DEVAS, AURAS – THE GREAT ARCANUM

This is what the whole course has been building up to—the GREAT SECRET that will enable ANYONE to see fairies, devas, auras and a host of other clairvoyant wonders. SECRET KNOWLEDGE that has been jealously guarded by an exclusive cabal of priests and shamans since BEFORE THE DAYS OF THE PYRAMIDS. A totally new SCIENCE OF KNOWING that is, according to privileged sources, only just being developed in TOP SECRET CIA and RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE laboratories and NEVER BEFORE REVEALED to the human race (except of course to all the above-mentioned priests, shamans, etc.).

Oh help…I hope this won't be one enormous anti-climax…

It is indeed a very simple trick and yet it made a great impression on me when I first stumbled across it after many years of unsuccessful attempts to develop direct clairvoyant perception. So I will make some effort firstly to re-create in your imagination the circumstances of my discovery.

After giving up on ever being able to see those Geoffrey Hodson devas when I was at school, I came across his book again many years later when I was regularly walking my partner's dog in a park. So I took to looking at trees and trying once more to tune into their auras.

 

Week 6: Seeing Auras, A Final Step

ePub

SEEING AURAS, A FINAL STEP

Last week I revealed my simple trick that allowed me to “see” nature spirits, devas and auras. If it “worked” for you—in the sense that you now have a taste of something that you previously thought you were blind to—then I invite you to continue practising it this week.

What initially might have been just an effort of imagination—“I guess I should see a little grey gnome with a blue hat, that's nice”—can soon gather momentum and become increasingly spontaneous and even surprising: “That's interesting, I feel sure that one should be blue while this one just has to be green and wispy. I wonder why?”

Gazing at a bed of daffodils is always a pleasure, but now you can gaze longer, and in a different way, seeing other forms of life emerging with surprising and increasing vividness. It becomes interesting, it adds value, yet for me it remains an effort and is never totally spontaneous. I think that is how it is meant to be for me: an additional item in my magical toolkit, rather than a natural, ongoing ability.
