Need A New Deck
Recently I’ve been in the market for some new Tarot cards.
The deck I have has got a few missing cards, not sure what happened to them.
I don’t use them to predict the future or do any kind of readings.
I use them more for like brainstorming, inspiration, some creativity exercises I’ve made.
I’ve been looking online, but I decided to go looking in some local shops.
You get kind of a much better feel for this kind of thing by talking to people.
If it were something like a frying pan, the online reviews would be good enough.
But for something more esoteric and spiritual, it’s always good to get somebody’s opinion.
So I went down to my local psychic shop, just to see what they had. I first went to a couple of bookstores, but they only had mainstream decks.
Nice Psychic Shop
The psychic shop had a lot more stuff. As soon as I walked in I noticed the woman behind the desk.
Something about her was really striking. Something about her energy.
So I made an excuse to talk to her, and she asked me to sign up for the store’s email list.
She explained that the list is only for people who physically visit the store.
That you can’t get this online.
Fantastic Email List
I signed up for the list and she sent out some really interesting articles. Some were basic ideas about magic.
Some were actual spells.
And some were invitations to meetups at the shop.
Turns out they have various workshops and seminars.
I went to one, which was a demonstration on love spells.
The lady giving the demonstration was explaining that real love spells take quite a bit of time to work.
That there is a lot of junk being sold online that promises only a little bit of effort is required.
Love Takes Effort
But in reality, if you want to make somebody fall in love with you, you need to put in some effort.
But if you are willing to put in the effort, you can get pretty much anybody to fall in love.
The first step is you must really qualify the person.
A common mistake is that people choose a target without really having any solid criteria.
Things like health or educational background or career interests or even political and religious orientation are things that you need to figure out.
Ready To Start
But once you have some criteria, then you start the love spell.
It takes about a month, and the first week is calibrating the actual spell.
This is another thing the places selling magic online don’t tell you.
Every spell for every person needs to be different, and unless you calibrate the spell correctly, both to you and the person you are casting it on, it won’t work.
The lady that was giving the demonstrating had a student of hers that was about halfway through the process.
The first half involves doing a kind of magical chant to elicit your best spiritual self.
While you are doing that chant, you slowly shuffle a tarot card deck.
Once you are finished, while your eyes are closed, you deal out seven cards.
These seven cards will serve the basis of half the spell.
While her student was demonstrating this, she told us about the history of magic, and why it’s so carefully guarded.
Golden Human Civilization
The golden time for humans was at the end of the last ice age, but before the dawn of large civilizations.
This was when there was enough naturally growing cereals and grains so that people didn’t have to farm, but they also didn’t have to gather or forage.
This allowed several families to live in the same basic area for several generations.
To actually build basic houses and use basic pottery to create utensils.
To bake bread, to make beer, and to enjoy other naturally growing, mind altering substances.
Best Of Both Worlds
Because there were so few people, and so much naturally growing food, this allowed generations of people to slowly gather and pass down information from generation to generation.
Because so little work was needed to survive, this allowed ancient people to spend time on the esoteric arts through meditation, astral projection and remote viewing.
Over about a thousand years, these first people amassed an amazing amount of knowledge about the esoteric and spiritual arts.
Power Begets Power
Pretty soon, certain people started to leverage these powers for their own benefit.
For the first time in human history, people actually began to believe they could own the land.
Once the people were separated into two classes, the land owners and everybody else, that’s when the population started to get too big to live only off the naturally growing food.
Pretty soon, the powerful land owning elites had kept all the ancient secrets of magic to themselves, and used it to become much more powerful.
Before long, there were two kinds of these esoteric secrets.
They Drink It All Up
The very powerful kind, kept by the elites to maintain their power and authority, and the kind taught to the masses.
The kind taught to the masses was essentially re-packaged and became ancient religion and mythology, which essentially further supported the ruling class.
This same collection of ancient secrets is kept by the ruling class today.
The same secret and very ancient families have been ruling the planet ever since.
The second half of the love spell is to do the same thing but instead of pulling seven cards for yourself, you do another chant and pull seven cards for your target.
Fourteen Cards Needed For Love
Once you have fourteen cards, seven each from two decks, one for you, and one for the love target, the elements of these fourteen cards will make the basics of your love spell.
This spell is to be repeated daily for two to four weeks. The lady doing the demonstration said she was about halfway through.
When she started, her target didn’t even know she existed.
At the time of this demonstration, he had already approached her, asked her for her number, and they’d been on a few dates.
I ended up buying three decks. One traditional one, with traditional images.
Old Magic Guy
One influenced by Aleister Crowley and one deck that uses Anime characters.
The one with Anime characters is really cool, just the images alone are worth the cost of the deck.
And I am looking forward to using them for my hallucination and brainstorming exercises.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
