"The Infinite Mind of THE ALL is the womb of Universes."
“He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on The Path to Mastery.” - The Kybalion
Magick uses mentalism. Mentalism is the practice of connecting straight to source since all is Mental, all is Mind. The universe is a mental phenomenon. Mentalism can improve your magick and magick can improve your understanding of mentalism. Ritual and spell work help us to feel and build power and connection to the Universal Mind.
"Mind (as well as metals and elements) may be transmuted, from state to state; degree to degree; condition to condition;
pole to pole; vibration to vibration. True Hermetic Transmutation is a Mental Art."-- The Kybalion
When we are casting a spell or doing a ritual we are hoping to affect a change in our reality. We want to go from poor to wealthy, from afraid to brave, from a feeling of loneliness to being in a loving relationship. As we mentioned in a previous post, each thing contains it's opposite.
Loneliness has the potential to be transformed into love, depression has the potential to be transformed into contentment or happiness, poverty has the potential to be transformed into wealth, sickness into health. Many of us have traveled along, up and down, these various poles many times in our lives. Transmuting mind from one state to another is then a very important practice.
Think about it this way, when we are experiencing anger, all of our thoughts have to do with what has made us angry, why we have a right to feel justified in our anger, or we think about all the other things that also make us feel angry. When we are happy our thoughts are centered on how great we feel, on what it is that is making us happy, etc. It's not often that we are angry and find ourselves full of thoughts of happiness and joy.
So how do we achieve the mental transmutation from one state to another? Let's use the love spell for example. When doing a love spell you might use sweet roses, rose quartz, you might write a love letter to your desired partner, you might imagine the apple of your eye approaching and courting you. All these things help us to change our feeling of being alone and to change our mind to thoughts that we would have if we were to experience our desired reality.
Crystals, flowers, and herbs not only appeal to our senses, but they are direct creations of the mind or hands of God ie "natural". There are numerous poems and stories of great artists and inventors who have received "divine inspiration" while sitting next to a stream or walking through a forest.
When we use certain scents, herbs, stones, when we spin around three times or whatever our spell work requires, these things all serve to help us get into a mood, get into a feeling of contact with that which we desire. They bring us into a mental atmosphere where we can affect change in ourselves and our reality. They take us, mentally and emotionally, to a place beyond the mundane.
"Opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree. Extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled." -The Kybalion
We are brought up believing that all events take place outside of us and we are lost to "fate" or "chance" or "systems". Not to say this isn't in part true (all truths are half truths), but we also do affect a lot of our experience in the world with our thoughts, the way we think and feel about our circumstances and our lives. We can polarize ourselves toward more desirable experiences just by choosing to think in more expansive ways even about situations which appear limiting.
Meditate on your connection to source. "The All is Mind, the Universe is Mental" If the All is mind then that must mean, that this Mind, intelligence is in all things, which must mean it is within me as well. This must mean that I also have access to great intelligence and inspiration. What would that mean for you if it were true?
Practice viewing things as a mental ideas. As I type this on my computer I can see that this computer originated in someones mind as an idea, so did my mug of coffee, so did the idea of taking the cacao plant and grinding it up into a drink to make coffee, etc. Ask yourself how many things you interact with daily that did not first begin as someone's idea. Many artists and musicians hear the music or see the artwork in their minds eye before they create it. All things begin from a thought or feeling which is then acted upon and brought to form.
You might be thinking, "does this mean I can materialize a million dollars out of thin air"? Eh, I'm not going to say what you can or cannot do with your mind, but I will say this - start small.
If you really want to materialize or manifest money. Maybe visualize walking down the street and finding a dollar. (This has definitely happened for me multiple times). Or Make it a twenty dollar bill!
Start off with things that are easy to believe they could occur in "real life". (Someone could easily have dropped a twenty dollar bill out of their pocket for you to stumble upon, it happens everyday). Polarize your thoughts toward possibility. Practice thinking and believing that good things find you easily.
Don't get caught up on how things might occur "God has ways ye know not off." Divine Mind has ways we know not of! There are still many secrets of how this world and reality works! Maybe you can manifest or materialize a million dollars. That might not mean it appears before your eyes, but will appear in the best way suited for you; a lottery win, inheritance, a million dollar business idea, etc.
Just know that everything exists in Mind, which is free from lack and limitation. Therefore All things are possible. Creation is finished, we just use our minds to become more aware of and lay claim to our desires. To polarize our thoughts and minds toward that which we desire. This is mental alchemy and transmutation, this is magick!
