Part One: Beginning Occult Magic

The Basics of Practice Magic is a touchy thing to begin. I suppose the first major question is religion . What is your religion? Is it compatible with magic? Do you wish to change religi ons to a magical one or simply merge what you have? There is much debate on this topic, b ut here is my opinion: Most religions ban magic as evil and have severe penalties, eithe r now, in the eternal, or both for practitioners of any form of magic. More than li ely, y our current religion will not mix with magic. Many practitioners have to brea  from their cu rrent belief system and form/join a comfortable hybrid religion. Also, the option of s imply abandoning what you currently  now as religion and radically changing your belie f system is open. It rarely wor s, due to moral and emotional conflicts, but it is still an option. The second major question confronting magicians is, "What is my nature?". This q uestion spawns many different answers. Some li e aggressive magic to attac  an adversary , or a friend's adversary. Many use protective magic to shield themselves and their fri ends from the stormy blast of other magic. Many people abandon the idea of combative magic all together and opt for enchantments to ease the burdens of life on everybody, such as blessings and prosperity spells. Here are most of the major classes of magician (as far as I can tell, all spells can be accounted for within these castes): White Magician - Expert of Protective and Healing Spells. Blac  Magician - Expert of Destructive Spells. Mage - Expert at Psychic and Mental Control, and Spells of Willpower. Druid - Masters of Nature and Natural Forces. Enchanter - Experts at Area Effect Magic (Curses/Blessings). Diviner - Experts of Future and Fortune telling. Conjurer - Experts at Summoning Spirits or Entities. Healer - Experts at Manipulating and Sustaining Life Force. Necromancer - Experts at Manipulating Death and the Dead. Sorcerer - Freelance Offensive Casters of All Types; Mainly focussed on blac  ma gic. Wizard - Freelance Defensive Casters of All Types; Mainly focussed on white magi

c. Priest - Calls on God to defend them and to wor  with their situation as necessa ry.

Ever wonder why magicians. Do not disclude magics that you do not li e for that reason alone. which is: Ta e Your Time! The decision pr ocess is long and hard.

if a caster was a Necromancer and wished to heal a friend, it would be to the detrime nt of someone else. A Necromancer has to draw on the powers of death, so in that case, a suitable donor (voluntary or not) would have to be found. A Healer, in contrast, would be able to syphon the energies of earth into the wounded friend, and in turn hurt n obody. A Conjurer would have to send a demon or angel into the person in question. There are many different options available, but each one has a different price to pay. The Necromancer may lose a bit of their own life force or have to harm someone else, and would have to  ill a living person proportionately to the amount of healing they bestow; the Healer would run out of available magic for a while and would be mentally we ary;

the Conjurer would not only have to later exorcise the possessing spirit from th eir friend but also would render the services of that spirit unavailable to themself for a time. Thin  of your objective and then thin  of the options available to you considering you r caster type. Sometimes the cost isn't worth the benefit. That's why I personally recomm end that whatever type of caster you are, that you ma e friends with a caster of opposite alignment and ability (i.e. a Demon Conjurer with a Priest, a Healer with a Necromancer, a Wizard with a Sorcerer, etc.). Thin  of your objective again, and thin  of how much energy it will cost you to obtain that goal. For a Priest, a blessing is nothing. For a Demonomancer, a blessing i s among the hardest things possible. Be shrewd in using your powers. Sometimes, what is difficult for one caster class is simple for another. Try to find the most expedient and w ise way to obtain your goal. If it was to gain money, then obviously a Healer and a Blac  M age would go about getting that money in a different way. The healer could offer the ir services of health, while a Blac  Mage could offer enchanted items or magical se rvices of their type. Lastly, one must evaluate purpose. This point is the most difficult to ascertain . If money is the purpose, perhaps that is too difficult to achieve. Instead, try aiming fo r a job as your purpose, and, as a result, obtain money. Purposes range in every way possible. S ome are altruistic and some are greedy and self-serving. Either way, one must be very ca utious when deciding what their purpose is. When you are ready to proceed, prepare your self mentally. You must prepare yourself for results, for the gravity of what you're about to do, and for the expulsion of some or all of the energy you have been gathering t hrough the breathing exercise set out in Beginning Magic #2. First, extend your hands t owards the target, or if performing an area effect enchantment, point at the s y (alter natively, some people find just as much strength by simply concentrating on the tas  at ha nd without any body positions). Clear your mind of disruptive thoughts that will di stract you from concentrating 100% on your magical tas  at hand. Now, you should thin  of y our purpose. Thin  of it vigourously, vividly and precisely. Now, feel the energy yo u have saved up naturally flow in the proper proportion out of your body and effecting your will. Let's just say, for a solid example, that you're an Mage who wishes to implant a

thought in someone's mind. Flush out your mind, "enter" that person's mind, and convey y our thoughts through Air energy. If it didn't wor  the first time and the person jus t continues laughing/tal ing or whatver they're doing and it didn't seem to affect them, try again. There's no harm done by trying again. Some spells require a fair bit of raw ener gy to get started. Just  eep trying. If, by some chance, it didn't wor  the first time or the hundredth time,  eep trying it. It will eventually wor , but you may need more e nergy to perform that spell than you have at the time. It is a frustrating process, but i t does wor  with practice. Some people get it the first time, some don't get it till the hun dred and first time. It just depends on how accurately you have carried out these steps and how much energy you have reserved to perform these acts of magic. Have faith,  eep practi cing, and rest secure in the fact that you now have all the information necessary to becom e an awesomely powerful magician. There are other ways available, but this wor s the best, hands down.

The Parting of Ways White Magician: The White art practitioner has among the easiest arts to advance in. The reason is that White casters, typically, are not constantly being hunted by adversaries. They do not start any fights, and therefore are not compelled to fi nish any, either. This allows them lots of time to understand the inner wor ings of nature and to collect their power for use in times of need. The main focus for you, as a caste r of this sort now, would be to learn the basic uses of herbs, oils, runes and stars. The creation of familiar elemental spirits is also quite useful, as they can be helpful for gath ering information and tending to matters. The more advanced caster may wish to create a magical "node" in which they can exercise absolute magical authority when they n eed to. A node is a concentration of magical energies into an area for absorption. The W hite caster can shape the magical auras of the trees, roc s, plants, and other items to concentrate on a spot, thereby ma ing it a magical focal point. These are endles sly useful. People who are injured should be brought here so that the full effect of a White caster's magic can be experienced by the recipient of healing magic. Also, this is a safe haven against magic curses from adversaries. Learn how to neutralize an area, and expe riment with cleaning an area of magical influence. Enjoy the excursion into the white, protective and healing arts. Blac  Magician: The Blac  caster has a difficult tas  ahead. It requires much pa tience and discipline. The main thing to focus on is physical or tangible results. Don' t assume that anything has ever happened. Be sure that if you cast a fire spell that some thing (perhaps not even your target) has caught on fire. In the beginning, absorb as m uch magical energy as possible and then channel all of it into a single action. It m ust be done that way at the beginning or else your results will be lame and barely noticable . Later, refine the amount of energy and the focus control thereof through experience. Fo cus on one type of magic at first, such as fire. Do not attempt to begin by casting ice and fire spells bac  to bac . Try to perfect fire and then move on to something else. The Blac  magician is to always increase their repertoire of destructive and varied spells . Always see  out new spells and of a different sort. At first, perfection of a single sp ell is

you are not a Blac  magician if there is no result by that time. From there. Do not be discouraged. then move up. Mages are typically good at the mind arts. Mages usually begin by attempting ch arm spells. qu it. such as remo te viewing and warp space (for the initiated). Moving up to human  ind is a big . if you still cannot get anything. The local dogs and cats tend to be good targets for that sort of practice. move up to animals. in which the caster attempts to magically win the loyalty of a creature. earth energy channeling and some of the movement spells.

Starting on insects or hordes thereof is good. Attempt to control the will of beings of lesser intelligence to start.

The last t hing a mage proceeds in is the ability to channel earth energy. please do the opposite of the two poin ts previously mentioned. Keep a record of the proceedure used and the result reaped. being in tune with nature and harmonious with all things is the highest calling. b) Ar en't result oriented.

To this end. believing that this is the only useful way to progr ess in life and magic. To the end of a well-rounded repertoire of offensive spells. aggressive and destructive spells. the Blac  Mage hones only those spells which bring about the decay or destruction of their target. Blac  magic centres around the the ory that "the best defence is a good offence" and thus concentrates on the use of magics that are meant solely for the purpose of destroying. Also. in The Library of Knowledge. as with all distinct caster types. as the Satanist does). but are rather only mages by the etymological definition of the word (i.The Touch of Dar ness By definition. it is quite common in this art to use them for intelligence gathering or for act s of . these are not real Mages) come from a variety of what might be loosely termed. and may hold to certain rules of casting which they find improve their performance.

Though there are a lot of reli gions which use magic in one form or another. the Blac  Magician must learn the arts of many different caster types. The Blac  Mage's spells (remember. the Blac  Mage ta e s from the following arts: Conjuring/Demonomancy Elemental Magic Enchanting Necromancy The use of each of these arts will be further expounded on. pic ing and choosing which spells to  e ep and which spells to discard. the Blac  Mage's arsenal comes from the casting arts which are listed here.

Though never able to reach a level of control over the elements that compares with a dedicated Elemental magician. are not the only source of power for a Blac  M age. very little is availa ble without dedicated study. so it will never recommend that you use an Elemental Servant for such purposes). This type of magic is based in Enchanting and will probably not be the strongest ability of a Blac  Mage. Very little from Elemental magic is accessible to a Blac  Mage. Blac  Mages use this to enhance their normal operations. and bind them into one cohering magic form. the conjuration instructions of which can be found at Spirit Online. this would be the art of choice. among the four elements. Also with Enchanting.Demons. is a classic among these casters. inste ad of Elemental magic. but still is a casting ab ility worth mentioning. The final borrowed source of a Blac  Mage's ability is based in the use of Necro mancy. a Blac  Mage can create a "spirit" to go and harrass/destroy/harm a selected target (alt hough the Spirit Online lin  is White magic based. Another one of the arts that is sapped of it's unique abilities is Elemental magic. Fire. Enchanting is used. Using a Fi re Elemental. the elements are usually mastered at the mos t basic level by a Blac  Mage simply for the purpose of being able to use them for unlea shing chaos. With the exception of Earth. but it tends to be far more forgiving and accessible to other caster types. Though the raising of bodies or entities is an ability far above a Blac  Mage. By learning t he basics of the use of Death Essence. however (and than fully). but often. If a Blac   Mage were simply trying to curse someone. Blac   Mages tend to be fiercely fond of using the Elemental class of magic since it represents th e quic est and most effective form of physical destruction available. Necromancy is infamous for two things: raising undead minions and vampiric spell s. One of the landmar  abilities of a Blac  Mage is to be able to ta e different sp ells from different casting types altogether.

as with every distinct caster type. but  nowledge of it's existence forms a ba se for the Blac  Mage's studies. there is a blac  energy source out there that can be commanded and controlled with will power. much li e death essence. .

Also. but rather that a feeling of weariness and lethargy can be induced). This enab les a variety of spells for the Blac  Mage.

Much li e the Death Essence of Necromancy. Blac  magic holds power through the use of the blac  chan nels.

the wh ole magical community was turned upside down. so as to understand the basis of power for the Cleric. until the publication of the Malleus Maleficarum in 1486. a Cleric must be spiritually ordained in Christ. (Titus 2:7. . the practice of non-demonic magic by priests and clerics was widely supported by all people. both old and new testament." As a Cleric. historically. written by Kramer and Sprenger (two Dominican priests). The art of Clerical magic has long been lost to the belief that all magics are evil devices of Satan.

The Cleric must possess three attributes in order to use their magics. and lead a n exemplary life of devotion to God and of wor  befitting a servant of Christ. exorcism. First. Christ Clerics are very familiar with the bible. based on 1 Thessalonians 4:2 ". that set them apart from the other caster types. that each of you  now how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honour.

Upon willing an injured person to be revived in the name of Jesus Chr ist (through which a Cleric receives any and all of their power). the magical immunity of a prayerful Cleric is a common attribute. and continues to be a common function of modern Clerics. the Holy Spirit is the power which ta es over and begins to wor  the revivification process in a target. a Cleric's hea ling is often instantaneous. Done with true compassion. Sometimes. . This is by far the most powerful ability that a Cleric can call on. The demons which have been summoned by a Conjurer often can be dislodged from the earth sphere by the holy presence of a Cleric. Angels may assist the Cleric in a infinite variet y of ways.

The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage is another old collection of tomes used f or a variety of reasons. how does on e say definitively that there is only one way to do such a thing. After all. . Even in formal literature as early as Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus (1604?) has the image of a mortal ma ing a pact with the devil been of intrigue. physical and spiritual p reparation. and precise incantations intoned at the correct times. but the most popular ones of the current age come from four sources: The Keys of Solomon .that humans can control the supernatu ral. passed down by legend and word of mouth.

As with The Keys of Solomon. The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage comes from a Jewish mystical tradition aimed at the personal purity of a potential Conjurer. I mention this point only to bring it to you attention . to highlight its contrast with the next two methods of conjuring. . It suggests rituals intended to  eep the Conjurer pure so that the evil of demons cannot ta  e hold of whoever may conjure them.
