Magick Mondays - Creating an Astral Temple
Magick Mondays - Creating an Astral Temple Creating an astral temple is a really fun and easy meditation exercise. It requires a strong imagination and the ability to astral travel however. Once completed you can use it for a variety of things, from somewhere to be alone to somewhere to a place to perform magickal rituals otherwise not accessible to you. You can even create astral versions of ritual tools there handy if you don’t own the required tool for a ritual. Start by astral projecting Astral Projection is the ability to control the soul outside the realms of the physical body. Some say that it can be dangerous as while you are away from your body you are open to possession from an entity however this is rarely a problem., Also the longer you remain outside the body the more astral energy is spent and this can delay re entry into the body. One thing to remember is no harm will come to you unless you think or will it too. Before you start imagine yourself emitting a white glowing light from your body and get yourself into a drowsy state. You should be completely relaxed and comfortable, free from distractions and alone, so as not to interrupt the meditation. Lie on your back, close your eyes and clear your mind . the aim is to achieve complete relaxation for the mind and body. Let your mind approach sleep, but do not lose consciousness and visualise a body part like a hand or a toe, until it becomes clear in your mind. Keep visualising it until all other thoughts fall away. Using your mind flex the body part without doing it physically, just flex the one in your mind. Broaden out your focus so it can visualise the whole body, and while keeping the focus steady and consistent move a larger body part like an arm and keep going until you can move any body part in your mind. This is now a heightened state and your body will begin to vibrate. Do not fear these vibrations it is normal, succumb to them and your soul will begin to leave the body. Imagine in your mind the room you are currently in and like with the body part keep focus until its clear . Then using the previous technique manoeuvre your astral body until you are stood up. Turn around and look at your physical self, it can be unnerving but keep focus and look around the room. you are now on an astral plane and this is called an out of body experience.and ascending to the astral plane, this might take practice but once mastered opens up a whole range of magick to you. Find a place on the astral plane you want to build your temple and begin building. You can use whatever materials you want as long as you can visualize it and see the process as its happening. You could add columns and pillars or windows. This is your space design it however you want. Your personality and like should shine through in the design. Once the outside and the structure is complete you can begin working on the decor of the temple. Visualize and create the flooring, any furniture you want, an altar and even storage for tools. Seating is important for when you are meeting with other entities or astral spirits. It can take more than one sitting and the more elaborate ones can take a long time to build up. Many things can be done from an astral temple including conversing with any spirits or entities you meet on the astral planes, or that you evoke. You can even call on another persons astral form to come to your temple. To do this simply will the person to the temple whilst you are there and they are sleeping. Once they appear you can pass on messages and information and even commands, which will all be carried out once they awaken. There will be no memory of the meeting just the knowledge or order given.
