In several places, Bardon mentions that repeating a formula 462 times will cause an instantaneous physical result to be released from the volt of power that has built up. I found this proposition exciting if true. I decided to set aside most other magical propositions and tasks to so I could focus all of my magical will and energy on a formula. I wanted something I think all magicians crave, a formula to manifest a thought-form to physical form. January 19th (notice the start of this project right after my evocation series) I began doing the repetitions.
Bardon gives no special instructions other than reciting the formula (and what that entails), but I also know that with formula magic the intention is important, otherwise the results will be generalized through the Kabbalist life and sphere. I created the intention that I would have to physically speak the formula for it to take any effect. I did not want to slip in a daydream and manifest something. Other than that, I simply repeated the formula, bridging the concepts together.
The first major effect I noticed is that whenever I went to sleep after reciting the formula I would dream about anything I may have thought about through out the day. As if each thought was drawn into the reality of the dream. This is not typical in my dream state; it is quite rare when I dream of anything related to my waking life. When it does happen I can easily pick it out and why it is there.
Nearly a month in to practice I then started having dreams of merging with divinity and other divine experiences related to the formula. I took this as me bringing the akashic level into a near astral density. I also noticed that I attained things much easier just by considering the desire for a while, and what I wanted of the thing desired. Towards the end of the first month, I was doing twenty repetitions a day.
I decided that on 3-11-09 since there was a full moon to finish the reps. The last week or so I had only a few left and I returned to a slower pace, loading food and drink with the formula or doing a long meditation on one rep. only. I thought it symbolically potent to finish on the full moon. I did so and had an incredible dream that I will be using as a meditation very soon as it allowed merging with divinity in an interesting manner, as well as connecting the activity to manifestation.
I waited a day to test the effectiveness of the formula. That night I then thought of an object I wished to manifest enhancing the detail and color for a few seconds. I then pronounced the formula. Nothing. Well, I say nothing…it produced a very strong astral condensation that lasted until banished. I have tried it with a few other things, simply projecting a mental form and then using the formula. Each time it produces a strong astral image that no longer requires me to hold it in my mind or try to keep the details formed.
In conclusion, it probably requires many more repetitions to produce the desired effect. However, I was only curious as to whether or not 462 repetitions had some magical impact or if it was the imagination and effort of the magicians who did the repetitions. I was pretty sure it was the latter but one does not know until one tries.
I have made rituals in the past that have been much stronger than this formula in a day or two with ease, although it took a strong effort of will-imagination-and emotion. I now plan to move to the final experiment I plan on working using the Bardon system which I think will take more time than two months and seven days, but who is to say? Wish me luck until then!
