PRACTISING SEX MAGIC

PRACTISING SEX MAGIC

The sexual act is possibly the most potent–and pleasurable–gateway to the primordial and the divine. From the Tantric mysteries of Hinduism and Buddhism and the inner alchemy of Taoism, to the traditions of Western Magic and Witchcraft–sex pervades the highest and most secret teachings all over the world.

Use the BWC Ritual of “5 easy Steps of Sex Magic”:

SET A GOAL
What exactly do you want to achieve with your magick? Your goal can be any material attainment, like a new job, prosperity in business affairs, a pleasant house, whatever.

Deeply desired wishes create the strongest magick!

For example:

Your goal can be the healing of yourself, another person, mother earth…
Your intent can be improvement of an existing relationship or attraction of a new one.
You may wish to (further) develop several qualities in yourself, or create an excellent artistic piece.
You may wish to embrace the inner lover, and establish a stronger connection with your higher self.
You may wish to charge an amulet, talisman, or magical tools, etc…

PREPARE
Prepare your working space.
Clean the space where the ritual will take place. Decorate it with candles, incense, flowers, gemstones or anything else you find appropriate. If you use symbols or other pictures make sure you can see them during the ritual. If you wish to play music, don’t forget to put it on the repeat-button. Close the door and lay the phone off the hook.
Clean your body.
While bathing or showering you can visualise the water washing off all mental, emotional and physical dirt.
Relax for a while.
Take some deep breaths or meditate a little.
If you do magick with a partner you may want to sit opposite each other, hold hands and synchronise breathing or inhale while your partner exhales.
Do a banishment.
It is very important to visualise a strong circle/globe of protection that keeps all unwanted spirits out, or do any other banishment you prefer, before you actually start the ritual.

I often perform sex magick in nature, and it feels amazing to call to Pan’s playful and very naughty, highly masculine sexual nature. – BWS
INVOKE
litha
Pan is the God I call to for my Pagan style celebrations, at certain times of the year. He is playful, and every sexually charged.
Are you drawing on the energy of a deity? A God or Goddess?

Or giving praise to a God of Goddess?

If so, set up this now. either in your mind, or on you altar.

THE RITUAL
Now you are ready to perform the ritual.

I know two ‘main routes’ to preparing for sex magic: one with emphasis on the affirmation/mantra/Word of Power, and one with emphasis on visualisation.

VISUALISE
Then create something that makes it possible to laser-like concentrate on your goal/intent during the ritual. – This can be a short affirmation. During the ritual you can repeat the whole affirmation.

– This can be a visualisation of the new created reality.
– It can be a drawing of what you want.
– It can be a symbolic representation of your desire, like a suitable tarot card, rune, sigil, astrological or other symbol.

If you prefer working with a visualisation:

Start with visualising very vividly the new reality; see yourself in the desired situation, feel your happiness about it, visualise it as bright and detailed as you can.
When your visualisation is complete to your idea, tell your mind that this is your focus, then mentally store it in your subconsciousness.
Start making love with your partner or masturbating, no longer thinking about the visualisation.
At the brink of orgasm back off, recall your visualisation and breathe your orgasmic energy in it.
Continue the rhythm of arousal and backing off several times.
Just before orgasm recall the visualisation from your mind and breathe/channel your orgasm into it.
POWER WORD sex magic
Another possibility is to reduce this affirmation to a word that covers its central idea; this will be your magical word.

Examples:

the affirmation “I am a successful business(wo)man” …….becomes “Success”.
“I request the universe to send me the best possible lover, or partner” ……becomes “Lover” or “Partner”.
The idea behind it is that your subconsciousness now knows your full intent, therefore it is sufficient to only repeat your magical word during the ritual.

Tips: If you choose to work with an affirmation:

Arouse yourself and/or your partner by any sexual activity you wish to use until you almost reach orgasm. Meanwhile keep on repeating the affirmation or mantra; you can say it out loud or repeat it silently.
When you are at the brink of orgasm back off by stopping all genital stimulation, stopping all pelvic movements and relax the muscles in the pelvic floor.
Breathe deeply and concentrate even more on your mantra. After a while build up more excitement, backing off again just before the point-of-no-return. This way you build up a great amount of sexual magical energy and deep erotic sensations; you may reach a state of sexual trance.
After several times coming close you wish to sweep all of your intent into the universe; let orgasm happen and – here comes the most important part – keep on affirming during orgasm with full mental concentration, call out loud your magical word(s) and don’t mind the neighbours!
Take care: if you lose focus during orgasm, you will have had great sex but no magical ritual!
Continue the ritual until both (or all) partners have reached orgasm.
YOU CAN USE A COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE.
sex magick
SOME WORDS ABOUT ORGASM:
If you are a woman capable of having multiple orgasms – (a series of orgasms quickly after one another) – just enjoy, have them during the ritual and end with the final orgasm.

If you are a man, here’s the good news that men can learn to have multiples too; by coming close then backing off just before the point-of-no-return several times men can experience all the feelings of an orgasm without having an ejaculation. Some men have a series of small orgasms, some men experience them as bigger orgasms. If you can do this, end the ritual with final orgasm/ejaculation. Not all men know that most women need clitoral stimulation to reach orgasm; although there are erotic areas in the vagina most women need the pressure of the pubic bone of their partner against the clitoris or stimulation by hand during intercourse to have orgasm.

CLOSING love spells
After orgasm you may wish to confirm your magick with the words:

“So mote it be”

Naphula. He is a Duke Great, Mighty, and Strong; appearing in the Form of a. Lion with Gryphon’s Wings. His Office is to make Men Knowing in all Handcrafts and Professions, also in Philosophy, and other Sciences. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits, and his Seal or Character is thus made, and thou shalt wear it as aforesaid, etc. “

 

From Tikaboo

“Vapula, or Naphula, is a Duke Great, Mighty, and Strong; appearing in the Form of a. Lion with Gryphon’s Wings. His Office is to make Men Knowing in all Handcrafts and Professions, also in Philosophy, and other Sciences. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits.”

 

From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford

“VAPULA/NAPHULA is the Sixtieth Spirit who is a Mighty Duke. He appears in the form of a Lion with Wings, and inspires the knowledge of Handcrafts and Professions. Vapula is by this admission one of the ones of Neph-Kam, the Nephilim who instructs the sorcerer on crafts of which they hold interest. In a beneficial sense, the Sorcerer may send forth Vapula to quietly assist through unknown inspiration for a loved one to learn something quickly, that their brain will gain in associations with this spirit. Vapula governs 36 Legions of Spirits.”

Santeria

Although Santeria is a religious path that is not rooted in Indo-European polytheism like many other contemporary Pagan religions, it’s still a faith that is practised by many thousands of people in the United States and other countries today.

Santeria combines influences of Caribbean tradition, West Africa’s Yoruba spirituality, and elements of Catholicism.

To become a Santero, or high priest, one must pass a series of tests and requirements prior to initiation.

In a landmark 1993 case, the Church of Lakumi Babalu Aye successfully sued the city of Hialeah, Florida, for the right to practice animal sacrifice within a religious context; the Supreme Court determined that it was a protected activity.

The Origins of Santeria

Santeria is, in fact, not one set of beliefs, but a “syncretic” religion, which means it blends aspects of a variety of different faiths and cultures, despite the fact that some of these beliefs might be contradictory to one another. Santeria combines influences of Caribbean tradition, West Africa’s Yoruba spirituality, and elements of Catholicism. Santeria evolved when African slaves were stolen from their homelands during the Colonial period and forced to work in Caribbean sugar plantations.

Santeria is a fairly complex system, because it blends the Yoruba orishas, or divine beings, with the Catholic saints. In some areas, African slaves learned that honoring their ancestral orishas was far safer if their Catholic owners believed they were worshiping saints instead – hence the tradition of overlap between the two.

The orishas serve as messengers between the human world and the divine. They are called upon by priests by a variety of methods, including trances and possession, divination, ritual, and even sacrifice. To some extent, Santeria includes magical practice, although this magical system is based upon interaction with and understanding of the orishas.

Santeria Today

Today, there are many Americans who practice Santeria. A Santero, or high priest, traditionally presides over rituals and ceremonies. To become a Santero, one must pass a series of tests and requirements prior to initiation. Training includes divinatory work, herbalism, and counseling. It is up to the orishas to determine whether a candidate for priesthood has passed the tests or failed.

Most Santeros have studied for a long time to become part of the priesthood, and it is rarely open to those who are not part of the society or culture. For many years, Santeria was kept secret, and limited to those of African ancestry. According to the Church of Santeria,

“Over time, African people and European people began to have children of mixed ancestries and as such, the doors to Lucumí slowly (and reluctantly for many people) opened to non-African participants. But even then, the practice of Lucumí was something you did because your family did it. It was tribal – and in many families it continues to be tribal. At its core, Santería Lucumí is NOT an individual practice, is not a personal path, and is something you inherit and pass on to others as elements of a culture that survived the tragedy of slavery in Cuba. You learned Santería because it was what your people did. You practice Santería with others in the community, because it serves the greater whole.”

There are a number of different orishas, and most of them correspond to a Catholic saint. Some of the most popular orishas include:

  • Elleggua, who is similar to the Roman Catholic Saint Anthony. Elleggua is the lord of the crossroads, serving as a liaison between man and the divine, and has very great power indeed.
  • Yemaya, the spirit of motherhood, is often associated with the Virgin Mary. She is also affiliated with moon magic and witchcraft.
  • Babalu Aye is known as the Father of the World, and is associated with sickness, epidemics and plagues. He corresponds to the Catholic Saint Lazarus. Connected to healing magic, Babalu Aye is sometimes called upon as a ​patron of those suffering from smallpox, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, and other infectious diseases.
  • Chango is an orisha who represents powerful masculine energy and sexuality. He is a being associated with magic, and may be invoked to remove curses or hexes. He ties strongly to Saint Barbara in Catholicism.
  • Oya is a warrior, and the guardian of the dead. She is associated with Saint Theresa.

It is estimated that about a million or so Americans currently practice Santeria, but it’s hard to determine whether this count is accurate or not. Because of the social stigma commonly associated with Santeria by followers of mainstream religions, it is possible that many adherents of Santeria keep their beliefs and practices secret from their neighbours.

Santeria and the Legal System

A number of adherents of Santeria have made the news lately, because the religion does incorporate animal sacrifice — typically chickens, but sometimes other animals such as goats. In a landmark 1993 case, the Church of Lakumi Babalu Aye successfully sued the city of Hialeah, Florida. The end result was that the practice of animal sacrifice within a religious context was ruled, by the Supreme Court, to be a protected activity.

In 2009, a federal court ruled that a Texas Santero, Jose Merced, could not be prevented by the city of Euless from sacrificing goats in his home. Merced filed a lawsuit with city officials said he could no longer perform animal sacrifices as part of his religious practice. The city claimed “animal sacrifices jeopardize public health and violate its slaughterhouse and animal cruelty ordinances.” Merced claimed he had been sacrificing animals for over a decade without any problems, and was willing to “quadruple bag the remains” and find a safe method of disposal.

In August 2009, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans said the Euless ordinance “placed a substantial burden on Merced’s free exercise of religion without advancing a compelling governmental interest.” Merced was pleased with the ruling, and said, “Now Santeros can practice their religion at home without being afraid of being fined, arrested or taken to court.”

How to Make Rosewater

Rosewater or Rose Water is an ingredient used for centuries. Essential in your Cuisine, Essential in Cosmetics, Essential in Magic ! You can find Rosewater in many stores and most of them are very nice, but why can’t we make our own one? First of all it’s very simple and also by making your own ingredients you empower the result with your desire. Lets see how to make Rose Water and how to use Rose Water!

Rosewater is used in Water Magic for many things as we can see in a while. So let’s get started. We will need:

* 3 cups of Rose Petals gathered in the Morning (Preferably on a Friday Morning)
* 5 cups of Distilled Water
* 4-5 drops of Essential oil of Rose

Preperation for the Recipe of Rose Water : Gather the Rose petals in the morning. This will make the Aroma more intense and will include the Morning Dew within. We will only use the Petals, not the stems or the leaves. Just the Petals. If you live in a city got to your florist and ask for organic Roses. It’s the same!

Gather White Roses if you wish to do Peace spells.
Gather Pink Roses if you wish to do Beauty spells.
Gather Red Roses if you wish to do Love spells.
Gather mixed colours of Roses if you wish to do a charm for planet Venus.

Try to gather roses in the country were there not much pollution and not much added chemicals. Have a walk in nature and search for roses.

When you have gathered what you want got back to your house and wash the Rose petals with much running water. Don’t use chemicals to wash them. Only water.

* Put the Petals in a Bowl or a Pot with Lid.
* Put the Lid in the Fridge for 30 minutes.
* Now Boil the Distilled Water.
* Pour the Boiled Water on the Rose petals.
* Cover the Bowl with the lid. We need the steam because it is enriched with the essential oil of the Rose petals. The cold lid will liquefy the steams instantly and it will return to the water and fill it with the Rich aroma. You will notice that the colour of the petals is fading.
* Keep it there for 2 hours.
* After that strain the Water and squeeze the Rose petals. Add the drops of the Essential oil of Roses for extra potency.
* Keep the Rose Water refrigerated.

Magickal Uses of Clove

Magickal Uses of Clove
Planetary Association: Jupiter/Uranus
Gender: Masculine
Element: Fire
Astrological Association: Aquarius
Magickal uses include: protection, banishing hostile/negative forces, and gaining what is sought.
Cloves are burned to stop gossip as well as to purify & raise the spiritual vibrations of an area. Use to bring a sense of kinship to a social gathering. Wear for protection and mental clarity. Said to protect babies in their cribs if strung together and hung over the crib (being sure that the strand can’t fall into the crib, of course!).
Burn to attract riches, drive away hostile forces, and stop any gossip about you. Carry to attract the opposite sex or bring comfort during bereavement. Cleanses the aura. It is placed in sachets with mint and rose to chase away melancholy and to help one sleep soundly.
Use for: Divination; Love; Lust; Banishing; Releasing; Inspiration. Using cloves is said to ensure that your magickal intention is realised. Clove is a visionary herb, and is also used as a Green Herb. On certain islands in Indonesia the Clove Tree is considered very sacred. They are used in love charms and aphrodisiacs. Add them to incense to further one’s ability to be psychically sensitive, as they are excellent for astral work.
You may find them included in love philtres, but they are more useful in bringing a sense of kinship to a social gathering.
Cloves may be used in ritual work.
Adding them to an incense mixture furthers one’s ability to be psychically sensitive. Although ground and mixed into one’s personal incense mixture is the most common use, a tea of cloves may also be used.
Cloves correspond with the Star card of the major arcana.
A Magickal Pomander
You will need the following items for this spell:
An orange with an oily skin
A nail or knitting needle
A good quantity of whole cloves
Cinnamon powder
Plastic bag
Ribbon Pins
Stud the orange with whole cloves complete with stems, bud side out. It is easier to insert the cloves if you poke a small hole first with the nail or knitting needle.
Space the cloves evenly in a pattern that pleases you, leaving room to tie the ribbon. The cloves will move closer together as the orange dries out.
As you work keep your intent for the pomander in mind. Place the powdered cinnamon in the plastic bag, and shake the pomander inside the bag until it is well coated with the powder.
Leave in a warm place to dry out, which may take up to six weeks.
Check frequently that the orange is not going mouldy, but try not to open the bag.
Lastly, tie the ribbon around the pomander, fixing it securely with the pins.
Hang the pomander where you can both see it and enjoy the fragrance.
When you come to dispose of the pomander, throw it into a fire.
Say: As I return this to its Element Sun, Jupiter, Venus I thank you for your help.
Made in this way the pomander can last up to a year before its fragrance completely fades. This pomander is multi purpose. All the components are ruled by the element of Fire and the relevant deities and planetary influences are Sun for the orange, Jupiter for the cloves and Venus for the cinnamon.

Magickal Uses of Devil’s Claw

Magickal Uses of Devil’s Claw
Planetary Association: Mars

Element: Fire

Deity Associations: Tzaddi (fish hook) Isis, Athena, Shiva

Folklore: There are many plants that carry the common name of devil’s claw, but this one deserves some special attention. Harpagophytum procumbens is a traditional medicine plant of the San people who live in the Kalahari Desert. Devil’s Claw is a perennial desert plant. It is a warrior plant that specifically grows in ground that has been degraded and abused by overgrazing. It protects the ground from further assault by means of its fearsome seeds with their tenacious hooks from which it derived its name.

The seeds hook onto the hoofs or mouths of grazing animals, which. quite immobilises the hapless animals and they may become unable to carry on grazing – an effective deterrent in the plant’s effort to protect fragile lands.

Devils Claw produces not only a deep taproot, but also a tuberous secondary root, which becomes very swollen and fleshy. This is the part which the San collect for medicine. Back in the 1950 Western researchers found out about the remarkable properties of this plant and started to market it in the West.

To cut an old and familiar tale short – today Devil’s Claw is becoming rare. Of the 3 countries in which it is found, Namibia, Botswana and South Africa, it is endangered in two. The tragedy is that untrained harvesters collect not just the tuber but also the root, thus killing the plant for good. Deserts are fragile environments and desert plants are particularly at risk. In recent years awareness regarding the damaging effects of unsustainable harvesting methods has grown considerably and there are now some efforts to grow and harvest this root sustainably.

Magickal Uses: A Powerful Exorcism and Purification Herb, it is burned on charcoal to cleanse your house of negativity, or when casting a Magick Circle to clear any residual negative energy and create pure space for your magickal work. This is a great herb to burn when moving into a new home to remove the residual energies of previous tenants. It has powerful protective qualities and as an amulet, placed near door ways, may protect against unwanted intruders. The seed pods of Devil’s Claw, named for their threatening shape, make excellent protective charms. The shape of the pods is suggestive of protection.

They are designed for clinging to the feet of large animals, which suggests a use for binding as well.

Apparently, the plant also produces an unpleasant smelling caustic mucus from its leaves that protects it from predators.

Most of the time, the magical properties of a plant can be determined from its physical properties. Caustic and threatening plants are protective; anything poisonous or thorny.

It is easy to see why this botanical curiosity got its reputation. With the recurved claws which catch and hold, it is seen as an aid to get you what you want. The whole plant is sticky to the fingers, so that contributes to the association of “getting something.” While Lucky Hand is also used similarly, I think of it as getting something you never had, whereas Devil’s Claw, with its claws that re-curved back towards you, seems more appropriate for getting something back which you once had, as in lost or stolen items.

Devils Claw Root is a plant associated with exorcism and is a valuable protection against evil and the devil.
