Magical exercises - they are not a game
by Emil Stejnar 
(translated by Richard Tschudi)
In the year 1958 I had the following experience. It happened in Vetlanda, a smallcity in Sweden. I had just welcomed a visitor from Vienna, a good friend of mineto whom I felt a strong connection, because of the many years we did researchestogether. There were plenty of news to share and in the evening we did anexperiment with a magical wand which I constructed according to specialinstructions. Then we went to bed and had long discussions before we fellasleep.The foot-ends of our beds were facing each other and they fitted exactly betweenthe walls and there was no gap at all between the beds.Suddenly I had a feeling that I was turning and swirling madly in a whirlpool of red and black flames. I was full of fear like never before and I believed to be liftedup into the air. Then from somewhere I heard my name called and I woke up. Ifound my self sitting at the farthest end of the bed and only very slowly gained fullconsciousness. In the other bed my friend was as well sitting on his bed and hewas still calling my name.As I now noticed, my bed was now slopped on the wall. The head of the bed wasstuck on the wall with its feet 40 centimeters above the ground and in themorning we noticed scratches on the wall-paper indicating that the bed musthave been lifted at one time up to1 meter from the ground. The room was in astate of great disorder. Books and music records were scattered on the floor. Thetable was standing on some of the books.After we calmed down my friend reported the following: He was woken up by acold draft of air and wanted to get up to close the window, however the windowwas already closed. Then he noticed that I was sitting in the middle of the bedand was staring with my eyes filled with fear ahead of me. Around my head wasa strange green light which seemed to emanate from my eyes. Then the head of the bed started to lift up. My friend said that I was screaming terribly and that Imoved to the end of the bed. He called my name a few times, turned on the lightand then I came to me (woke up).At that time I assumed that the cause of that spook was the experiment with themagical wand. It was a nine-time coiled spiral made of a wire of fine-gold andfine-silver and a magnetic iron top. The whole was stuck on a staff of elder woodand was meant to be especially appropriate for invocations.
Today I know that the magic wand was very innocent. The real cause was theone-sided magical exercises which I practiced for a few months prior to theincident. Like any beginner I focused on those exercises which appealed to meparticularly and neglected others. I overdid
asceticismand I tried to strengthen mywill-power by all kinds of methods.In this manner I created a reservoir of power which had to discharge itself eventuallybecause I did not assign a task to that power-reservoir. Any power which is transformedby will-power exercises has to be consciously associated with a quality, a name or ameaning if you want to have control over this power. Otherwise this power or energy willautomatically connect with a part of the so called unconscious and then worksindependently, mostly against us, or it can also be misused by entities.This is an important law in practical magic. From this can be deduced: Every quality,idea or goal towards which we are striving will soon join up with a force so that it canmanifest itself. This force will be extracted from us unless we do not consciously createhis force by will-power exercises or do not have control over the idea.
Most beginners are disregarding this fact or are not aware of it yet. However,magical exercises are not a game. It wouldn’t occur to anybody to play aroundwith the bare fingers with a high voltage power-line. But when it comes to magic,many believe they can visualize and meditate on what ever they like althoughvery dangerous powers can be contacted.This is also the reason why many students give up practicing after a few monthsor they are forced to do so by tragic fate. The divine providence, in this manner prevents damages that sooner or later can occur to spirit and soul.The right way therefore is to practice and strive with spirit, soul and body equally,and create an elemental equilibrium on each level. The best instructions aregiven in the book: “Initiation into Hermetics” by Franz Bardon. Whoever works onhis or her occult perfection has to observe the law of the interaction betweenforce (power) and might (quality). He or she should these might’s (qualities) andforces (quantities), which are automatically created and are released by themagical exercises and then ban and capture them consciously with a gesture(mudra), a ritual, or a seal. Or he or she should bind these might’s and forces(quantities and qualities) with a clearly outlined quality or attribute. He or shethen creates magical aids without any special effort, which will serve him or her well on the path. The usual side effects which every practitioner experiencesduring his or her apprenticeship will eventually wear off.(note by the translator: This part of this article first appeared in the Germanesoteric magazine “Anubis – Zeitschrift fuer praktische Magie und Psychonautik)# 10, December 1988.The last paragraph that follows was added by Emil Stejnar when he republishedthis article in his book: “Die vier Elemente – Der geheime Schluessel zur geistigen Macht.
