Life, Death, Time Travel, and Parallel Universes

(I’m half asleep and just rambling nonsense.  Don’t take any of this seriously.)

Life, Living, Death—Are They Just Illusions?

I have been reading a lot about the theories of quantum consciousness and quantum immortality.  Now I’m no scientist, and I know that many mainstream scientists consider such topics to be “metaphysics” and “woo”, but I do find it all fascinating in a strange way.  I’ve always pretty much believed in reincarnation, but I do wonder if there really is more to it all.

What if our consciousness DOES operate on quantum levels, instead of just being a product of the brain in our one, physical body?  What if when we “die” in this dimension/Universe, our thoughts and dreams automatically transfer over to another copy of “us” in a parallel Universe similar to this one?  As far as we know, we’d always have existed in that dimension.  Would this mean we are not able to subjectively experience our own death each time we die, since we keep on existing in a parallel world?  Of course, our family and loved ones in the dimension where the copy of ourselves “died” would truly believe us to be dead from their own point of view, but from our own, we’re still alive in another dimension.  Thus, if there are an infinite amount of Universes, we’d never really die for good (from our own point of view), would we?

Of course that still doesn’t explain why our bodies age.  This is part of the theory that makes no sense at all, I think.  If we die of old age in a hospice bed in one dimension, does that mean we end up right back in a bed at an old age in another dimension?  Who would ever want that!?  The only way this could be explained is if after dying of old age in one dimension, we’d go right back to being our child self in another dimension, and the whole process would start over again.  Could this perhaps be why many who are close to death act as if they’re speaking to other relatives or loved ones who have already passed on?  It is said that our deceased loved ones come to be with us as we’re close to death ourselves.  But is it the other way around?

Could it be that while on the deathbed, the dying person is actually experiencing a transition to an alternate Universe where those loved ones are still alive?  If the dying person was happiest during a certain time in his or her life, could he or she end up in a parallel Universe where the “copy” of his or herself is still experiencing that time of happiness?  Perhaps that also could explain why many on their deathbeds finally seem at peace while passing, they’re being “absorbed” into a parallel Universe where all is well and always has been.  The only way they would ever know that they were once old and/or ill and dying in another dimension would be if their other copy “dreamt” about it.  So whenever we dream that we die, does it mean another version of ourselves actually did die in a parallel Universe?

Like I said, this article represents my own strange ponderings.  This is all nothing more than me asking, “what if?”  Personally I believe in reincarnation, in some form anyway.  Whether we end up as a different person each time in the same world, or the same person each time in a different world, I have no idea.  Perhaps it could be both, if there truly are an infinite amount of opportunities and dimensions, then I suppose any and every outcome could be possible.  Of course, the most logical explanation is that we simply cease to exist at all when we die—body and mind.  No matter what happens to us when we die (if anything), we should still treat each moment in our lives as sacred.

Love Spells

Love Spells

Love spells can be cast for a variety of reasons, including a desire to meet your soul mate, reuniting with a former lover, or spicing a current relationship up.  Love spells are very controversial, and some people even believe them to be unethical.  It’s often believed that casting a love spell on a specific person would be a way of forcing your will upon him or her, going against fate, and in the long run, causing you bad karma.

Of course everyone has their own opinion on the matter, and while I do advise to use caution if you ever want to attempt a love spell, you should always follow your heart.  To be honest, I have seen a lot of bad karma resulting from a specific person having a love spell cast upon him or her, but I have also seen success.  We each have our own experiences that we must learn from.  And while I recommend only doing general love spells for the purpose of attracting a soul mate instead of trying to make a specific person fall in love with you, if your mind is already set on the latter, then go for it.  If you think that any possible consequence(s) will be worth it, then nothing I can say will stop you.

So how can you do a love spell?  Love spells work best when they come from the heart.  But if you’re not confident with your own spellcasting abilities at this point in time, then here is a powerful love spell that you can try.  You’ll need:

•    One large pink candle and four mini red candles.  Place the pink candle in the middle of your alter, table, or floor (just don’t knock it over!).  Place the red mini candles into each corner of the room—one in each quarter.


•    Light some vanilla incense and place it near a window.


•    Take some rose petals and throw them all around the room.


•    Dress all in white clothing.


•    You’ll also need an athame or a sword (be careful with them!)

This love spell, as with all love spells, are best cast on the Friday nights of either a full moon or a new moon.

After getting everything prepared to conduct a love spell, make sure you either call on the four watchtowers or perform the LBRP.  If you have no idea how to do either, then I recommend you not to cast any spell whatsoever, let alone love spells.

Once you made all of the pre-spell preparations, sit in the middle of the room in front of the pink candle.  Spend a few minutes meditating.  Once you begin to feel some energy surrounding you, began chanting this mantra over and over again: “I call upon the powers of love and passion, Please come from above in a timely fashion.  I shall have the man/woman I desire, deliver him/her to me through earth, water, air, and fire.”

After a few minutes of chanting this, stand up and grab your sword or athame.  Walk around in circles, starting from East, and then South, West, North, and back to East again.  Say “I am now destroying all the blocks that separate me from him/her.”  While walking, visualize all the negative energy that is separating you from him/her being destroyed by your athame/sword.  After a few minutes, you may stop.  Thank the spirits who have heard your plea, and then do a proper banishing.  Again, if you don’t know how to do a proper banishing, it’s best that you don’t attempt to do a love spell.  Leave the candles and incense burning for as long as you can (don’t burn your house down, though!)

The days and weeks after you cast the spell should be spent by you being positive and doing things that make you happy, and that will take your mind off of that person.  Obsession toward a goal hinders the chances of love spells working successfully.  Not only should you do things that make you happy so that your mind will be occupied, but you need to remain as positive and patient as possible.  Love spells usually start happening by 3’s: 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months.  The more positive your overall feelings are toward the outcome, the faster the love spell will work for you.

Summoning the Spirit Bethor — Two Successes in a Row

Summoning Powerful Spirits and Making Pacts With Them

Just recently, I have summoned the planetary spirit, Bethor, twice. The first time took more planning, and the second time was more of a spontaneous evocation. Both times were met with equal successes. Bethor is one of the Olympic Planetary Spirits mentioned in The Arbatel of Magic, Arbatel De Magia Veterum.

Bethor is also mentioned in the book, “Summoning Spirits” by Konstantinos. He is said to be the “spirit of Jupiter”, and is described as wearing “an azure colored robe”. It’s also mentioned that he is “surrounded by flashes of light, like lightning”.

When I first decided to summon Bethor, my attention was to ask for help with my freelance writing career. I did not plan on asking for money, wealth, or treasure; I only asked for help in business matters.

Before I go any further, I want to warn all novices to the craft that summoning spirits, especially powerful ones, can be dangerous. I know we’re all tempted to dabble at times, but sometimes it’s best not to. Summoning entities from sixteenth century grimiores should only be undertaken after all other options have failed. I don’t want to sound as if I’m preaching, but dabbling in the occult is very serious business.

I don’t have too much room to talk, though. I make no claims to be a ceremonial magician. I can only describe myself as being somewhat of a chaos mage/eclectic witch. I admit that I did not summon Bethor the “old fashioned way”.

I did call upon the quarters before beginning the “ceremony”. After I was satisfied with the circle, I faced toward the East and began the evocation. I meditated over Bethor’s sigil and chanted his name for several minutes. I asked for a sign that he was present, and then the entire room became extremely chilly. I also noticed a sort of blue aura in front of me; his color is azure, after all.

I proceeded to ask him for help with business matters. I’m trying to establish a career as a freelance writer. Unfortunately, up to that point, things weren’t going so well. I asked him for his help, and promised him that I would tell the world about him. I haven’t come across much information concerning Olympic Planetary Spirits. If there is a lot of information out there, I have yet to discover it.

Finally, once I felt confident that the summoning was successful, I asked him for a sign that he was willing to help me. Something told me to “look out of my window”, and I did. There was a strange cat sitting there in my yard looking up at me. I never saw that cat before the summoning. My own cats are very territorial and they usually run other cats off. The cat has since then taken up residence on my porch, and it refuses to go away. It’s only half grown kitten, and my fully grown cats seem to be frightened of it.

It’s because of this strange fear my cats have of the “mystery” cat that led me to summon Bethor once again. One of my cats disappeared for a couple of days. This was very unlike her, and I was extremely worried that something bad had happened to her. I felt guilty in a way, as if I were to blame for the “mystery” cat’s presence. The evocation of Bethor was otherwise successful; immediately after summoning him, I began receiving more writing jobs than ever before. Bethor literally began helping me instantly. Unfortunately, I was too worried and upset about my cat to concentrate on my work.

During a panic mode, I hastily summoned Bethor again. I asked him if he would please “return my kitty” to me instantly. I also took time to thank him for helping me with my previous evocation. I chanted his name and even drew his sigil all over my arm. I asked him with everything I had to bring my kitty back to me. Once again, I felt as if somebody was trying to tell me something. This time, the words “go open the door; she’ll be there this time,” formed in my head. I did just that. She was there.

After two days of her disappearance, she finally showed up during my pleading with Bethor. I was so happy and thankful that I began to cry. I also gave the “mystery” cat some food. As frustrated as I was with it, I knew that my own cat’s stubbornness wasn’t its fault. It’s a skinny little thing, and I feel that it came to me for a reason (well, other than food).

As for my writing career, things are going great now. I’m keeping my promise to Bethor by writing about my personal experiences with him. I’m putting this “manifesto” up for everyone to read. If I ever decide to work with other planetary spirits, I’ll write about my experiences with them as well.

The Goddess

The Goddess

The Goddess surrounds us.
The Goddess is all around us.
She is inside of us
She is beside of us.
We can hear her in the wind, and see her in the stars.
She is the light that shines down upon us; near and far.
She is the sun that gives us warmth on the warm summer days.
She is the eternal fire that will burn always.
She is the waves crashing in the sea..
Neverending. Eternal. She is you. She is me.

Summoning and Working With Dragons

This is a very powerful ritual, and should only be attempted by the most experienced of magicians, witches, and sorcerers. This spell concerns Dragons. This spell is not just about “any ole dragons”, but the most powerful. These are the Dragons of Eternity. These are the Dragons of Time. They exist in all four directions of the world, and are watching down over us always. They have been around since the beginning of time, and always will be. We cannot see them, atleast not with our physical “eyes”, but they are there.

divider

Sometimes they will come closer to us if called. Sometimes.

Only a skilled mage, witch, or sorcerer should call upon them though. They must only be summoned during the most difficult times in which the summoner needs guidance and knowledge. I will outline the proper steps in summoning them, which has been passed down to me. First, the magician must do a proper banishing. The room and the magician must both be cleansed and pure.

divider

The magician must then stand and face the East and light a gold candle. The magician must visualize a magnificent golden dragon, soaring high in the sky with its wings. The magician must get down on one knee as if in prayer and respectfully bow to the Air Dragon. The magician then shall say in a clear voice “I call upon thee, Great Air Dragon. You who watch over this world from the East. You who rule over all throughout eternity.” The magician shall spend a moment visualizing the Great Air Dragon flying closer to Earth, becoming larger and greater by the second. After the magician totally feels the presence of the Great Air Dragon, he or she must then thank the Great Air Dragon for coming.

divider

Next the magician must stand back up, and turn to the South, and light a red candle. The magician will then continue with the same procedure, only this time he or she must call upon the Dragon of Fire. First kneeling, and then say: “I call upon thee, Great Dragon of Fire. You who watch over this world from the South. You who rule over all throughout eternity.” During this, the magician must visualize a Great red dragon standing within flames. The magician shall spend a moment visualizing the Great Dragon of Fire walking closer to Earth, bringing along the fires of the South. After the magician totally feels the presence of the Great Dragon of Fire, he or she must then thank the Great Dragon of Fire for coming.

divider

Next the magician must stand up, and turn to the West, and light a silver or blue candle. Now the magician must call upon the Dragon from the Seas. Visualize a beautiful, silver Dragon emerging from the sea. “I call upon thee, Great Sea Dragon. You who watch over this world from the West. You who rule over all throughout eternity.” The magician shall spend a moment visualizing the Great Sea Dragon coming closer to Earth, upon its waves. After the magician totally feels the presence of the Great Sea Dragon, he or she must then thank the Great Sea Dragon for coming.

divider

The magician must then turn toward the North, light a green candle, and kneel again. This time the magician shall summon the Dragon of the Earth. The magician must visualize the Great Earth Dragon as large and green, and as beautiful as the forest in which it dwells. The magician must say “I call upon thee, Great Earth Dragon. You who watch over this world from the North. You who rule over all throughout eternity.” The magician shall spend a moment visualizing the Great Earth Dragon coming closer, bringing the forests of Earth with it. After the magician totally feels the presence of the Great Earth Dragon, he or she must then thank the Great Earth Dragon for coming.

divider

And now the magician shall rise and face the East once again. The Four Dragons of Eternity have been called upon. They are there with the magician, with all of their glory and power. The magician shall ask the Dragons for help and guidance, but only if the Magician truly needs it. Do not waste their time. It would not be wise to annoy Dragons. If the magician feels deep inside his or her soul that he or she truly needs help, then the magician shall pour his or her heart out to the Dragons. They will listen.

divider

The magician must meditate while the candles burn out. The magician shall then ask the Dragons to depart, only this time starting with the Dragon of Water and ending with the Dragon of fire. The steps must be reversed. Facing each Dragon the magician must say “I ask you, Great Sea Dragon, to take into consideration what I have asked of you as you now depart”. The magician must say that to each Dragon until at last he or she comes back around to the West. The magician shall then properly dispose of the candles, preferably by burying them. A banishing shall lastly be undertaken to rid the area of any negative entites who may have found their way there. The magician must not ever speak of the Dragons to anyone until the results start taking place.

Focus On The Light For A Brighter Future

So many people feel like giving up these days, and I can’t blame them. These are hard times for many of us. The one thing we must remember though, is that there is ALWAYS hope. Even in the darkest times, there can always be a little bit of light. This gives every one of us two choices:

1. We can get lost in the darkness and forget the small light or

2. We can concentrate and focus all of our attention on that small light.

Even if the past and the present are both filled with unhappiness and sadness, that doesn’t mean that the future will be as well. Our past thoughts and feelings are part of what makes our present, and our present thoughts and feelings will create our future. If it seems like that nothing goes our way, time and time again, then perhaps we’ve been “lost in the darkness”. If we can go back and look at the happy times in our lives, as well as find gratefulness for the good things we have now (even if it seems like there’s not many), then we will be choosing option number two. We will be focusing on that small light. When we put all of our thoughts and hope on that small amount of light, it can open the doors to a more wonderful future. The more we remember that small light, and the more thankful we are for it, the bigger and brighter that light will become. We must all take a look at our pasts, and try to think of all the good things that have happened, even in the most dire of situations.

Think of all the good things happening to us now, even if it doesn’t seem like much. By focusing on the small good things, we are focusing on that small light. The more grateful we are for the good things, the more the light will grow and the brighter our future will be. Try spreading that light out over all the darkness. Try spreading the hope out over all the despair. The more we overlook that small light, the more lost in the darkness we will

I feel that way myself many times. I always try to remind myself that the world won’t be against me forever, some day the light inside of me will grow stronger and greater than anything in this world. This is true for all of us. That little light, no matter how small, can become more powerful than the entire world as long as we believe in it. If we want to change the world, we have to first change ourselves. We must first believe in that light inside of us.

Top List of Fun Ways To Raise Your Vibration! Attract Good Luck!

Happiness Cards– As tacky as it sounds, I have found this to work wonderfully. Get yourself a bunch of bright colored index cards, write down something that makes you happy and grateful on each, and decorate them with stickers. Do this every day and either stick them on your wall or bulletin board, or keep them with your gratitude journal. It will help to listen to your favorite, upbeat songs while make these “happiness cards”.
Bubble Bath – Every time you find yourself worrying or feeling upset about something, go take a nice, hot bubble bath immediately. Don’t hesitate to do it. If you’re not home when you start feel upset, then do it the second you get home.
If you feel stuck where you are – If you’re not happy with the area you’re in and wish you could be elsewhere in the world, try thinking about the good things about the place you’re at instead of the bad things. There is goodness and light found everywhere. Go sightseeing and take some nature pictures if you have to. How do you expect to move on if you can’t even appreciate where you’re at now?Dance – Listen to your favorite upbeat songs over and over again; just start bouncing around dancing to them. I have also found that turning the light out and lighting a few candles and incense (usually Dragons Blood) and dancing to hypnotic/trance music is a very interesting experience. You could also go to a club or studio and dance if you’re not shy.

Meditate – Meditate for at least 20 – 30 minutes 2 or 3 times a week. Imagine your body being surrounded by a very, very bright light. If you’re someone who has trouble staying still, there is such thing as “walking meditation”. Go outside for a walk on a nice day. Slowly walking on the rail of the tracks is a good way to meditate (ONLY for those who live near old, abandoned tracks). Say this over and over again “I float, not walk. I float, not walk” and focus on your breathing. You are less likely to fall off if you do those two things. Just use common sense and don’t wear earplugs so you can hear if a train is coming.

Breathing Technique – Speaking of breathing, a good way to help stay calm is to spend a minute focusing on your breath. Close your eyes, put your right hand over your chest and your left hand over your belly. This can be done anywhere, anytime. Breath in deeply (it’s up to you whether to use your mouth or nose) and count to 4, hold it for 4 seconds, then realize. Hold it again for 4 seconds, and then start over. Count to 4 with each of the 4 steps. Continue this for a minute or two.

Cuddle with your pets– There is not much in the world sweeter than a happy cat or dog. Petting and loving animals is a great way to help one stay calm. It is a great way to help raise your vibes. It will make them feel great too. Pets can sense a mile a way when something is bothering their human. My cats run up to me and try to comfort me whenever I am upset, even if I’m in another room. It would stand to say then that pets know when their humans are really happy as well.

Your Favorite Childhood Cartoons – Do you remember the type of cartoons and movies that made you happy when you were a small, carefree child? Long before you ever started feeling the stress of finances, relationships, or health? Would you like to relive those moments again, even for a short while? Go to youtube and rewatch your favorite old cartoons. Smile and laugh at them again, just like you did long ago. Go rent your favorite childhood movies as well.

Coloring/Drawing/Painting – While you’re in that mood again, you might as well go out and get yourself a coloring book and crayons, or maybe even those jumbo activity books. As far as I know they still make those. Go ahead and let your creative, inner child shine through again. I can’t stress how much at peace you’ll be with yourself, even if it is just for a short while.

Affirmations – Try using affirmations too while you’re at it. Try this along with the breathing technique. I have found that the easiest and calming affirmation for me is “Every thing’s gonna be ok. Every thing’s gonna be ok. I promise, every thing’s gonna be ok”. Some people have trouble truly believing the finances and health affirmations that you can find anywhere on the web, but to remind yourself that “Every thing’s ok and every thing’s gonna be ok. I promise myself.” is more believable to some people. To remind yourself that, over and over again, that somehow, someday, every thing’s going be ok, is a good way to stay calm. If you would like to try some money or health affirmations, make sure never to use any negative words such as “not” or “never”. Do not say “I am not fat. I am not fat”, but instead say “I am thin. I am thin. I am thin. I am going to lose more weight and be even thinner”. Never say “I am broke and need more money”, the only thing you will be affirming is that you are broke and need more money. It’s a whole lot better to say “Every thing is going to be ok and my finances will continue to increase”. Another good affirmation is “I am financially free and secure. I trust that God/Universe/Fate/whatever will continue making it so”. Some people prefer writing their affirmations down 15 times a day instead of saying them allowed. That is fine too. Just make sure you are in a positive mood when you do.

Laughter – Laughter truly is the best medicine, it will heal your soul faster than anything else. Whenever you get a chance, do anything and everything you can think of that will make you smile and laugh a whole lot. Watch your favorite stand up comedians on youtube, watch your favorite comedy skits, reread your favorite humorous book, go out and do something fun with a friend. Make sure the two of you spend some time being silly and getting a good laugh at yourselves.

I have spent time doing everything I just mentioned over the last several months and have finally found peace and freedom in my life. I am also having better luck than ever and attracting wonderful things and people into my life. I still have some bad luck here and there, but I try to remember that everyone else does too. Try doing many of these things yourself as much as possible, and you will be raising your vibrations a lot too. You may not notice instantly, it may take some time and the changes may be subtle, but like I’ve been saying, “Every thing’s gonna be ok. I promise”. 🙂
