Any successful manifestation requires a clear vision. Whether this creation is accomplished with visual tools such as photographs, vison boards, or by constructing and expanding upon a well-honed internal vision, the foundations must be a clearly defined concept. Too often we are pulled in many varying directions or have lost our focus and connection with what it is that we truly wish to accomplish. Every human interaction imparts viable and useful information, but equally as well unnecessary “fluff”. Some of which does not roll off our back as easily as we might think.
The ability and practice of breath control can be advantageous for any situation- Change of job, relationship turmoil, familial bonds changing etc. Thoughts of change alone can be overwhelming. Emotion, guilt, duty, daily demands and dependent responsibilities seem to compete for rapidly fleeting and increasingly finite reasoning ability. Focusing on each individual breath, track the intake of air, following its path through the head and body, pushing energy along the veins and meridians. Visualizing existing pathways and flow within and around us can bring us back in touch with a place of discernment and clarity. A place where one step, one piece of the puzzle, can be observed, shined or adjusted or released. Trade the sand through your fingers for the solidity of now using your breath.
Breath training and practice can also benefit spiritual development. Desiring to delve deeper into your spirituality? Feeling a tug or call? The quieter the mind, the more accurately we may ascertain to whom or when we are being led. The more open our awareness, welcomes what comes. If that be good or bad, depends on how we conduct our mindset. Do you want to develop a closer more intimate relationship with the divine (Satan or the Demons)? Has an alternative healing modality caught your interest? Want to strengthen your energy manipulation skills? Focused breath uses will as fuel and direction for your purpose. Aspire to connect with another person, spirit, or group on a deeper level? It is a special and absolutely sacred experience to breath, feel, and share that force of life with another, or with entrusted others.
A simple exercise to bring awareness to breath, and breathing, is to sit or lie on a comfortable surface, close your eyes, and inhale through your nose for a count of 8. During that moment, feel the air and the action of the diaphragm. Now hold this breath for another count of 8. Then through the mouth, exhale slowly (should take another count of 8). The very simple technique, grounds you in the moment, connects you to the now. This can be used in conjunction with mind-clearing exercises. Also, this could be used in body relaxation exorcises- Starting at the toes, point, and flex each muscle group while directing attention and breath to the area being worked upon, ending with the head. Or., use breath focus for chakra alignment (begin at the root and work up to the crown). There are many varied practices both for mundane and for spiritual which may be enhanced by a developing a routine of conscious breath.
Meditation is key to well being and to any spiritual practice. It is one of the main tools a Satanic Witch or Warlock could use to develop their growth and connection upon the Path. Meditation is one way in which a person may utilize intentional (conscious) breathe and breathing. Meditation is a way of training the brain to tune into varying levels of consciousness. It can help establish and foster a beneficial connection between mind, body and spirit. There are several different methods of meditation. Find the one that is right for you and for the purpose you are using it for. Very powerful magick is often conducted through visualization ,while conducting breath work while in a meditating. This is the core base of traditional folkloric witchcraft.
