Karma, Everyday magic, reincarnation and my last magic blog

Fate, Karma, Magic and Reincarnation






One of the big mysteries for many people is what happens to them after they die. Many people fear what awaits them, from the void to the unimaginable people philosophize and speculate. Sadly, few have the guts to actually go see what occurs, no not by killing themselves, by learning the secrets of magic and astral projection. By doing this you learn a great deal about the “afterlife.” For one of the last blogs on magic I write, I will tell you what is the last few things that will occur to you.


First off friends, let us look at magic real quick. We all know that by applying the imagination and the will we create change within the universe. Simple yet powerful idea. Now consider every fantasy you have, let us say that you are poor. You sit there hungry wishing, imagining, willing for food-wealth-riches-comforts. Understandably so by the way! You keep thinking to yourself about how you wish to be rich, day in and day out. Well, maybe in this life of rags you have no real opportunity to draw these riches to you, maybe your lazy and won’t apply yourself or whatever. Then let us flash forward to death. Now that you are dead you will gravitate to a realm within the astral that fits your personal vibrations. However, you created a HUGE volt of desire for one thing “Riches.” The universe has been dying to release this charge and finally it can. So the pull of its charge eventually drags you down to be incarnated again. At which point you now live in a very wealthy lifestyle. You eat well, dress well, etc…however, for some reason you feel nervous about your wealth. You have to work very hard to keep wealthy and you feel just worn out. You begin to long for a simple life, one with less worries and cares, perfectly free. In your next life your poor again.


Now of course you may not go back and forth like a spiritual ping-pong battle, but the idea is the same. We build up these longings and desires for things that we put off into the future. This builds a potent force that will drag us into a certain incarnation to discharge all of that power and desire. That is why some stay here for so long, learning quite a bit—and in the end desiring little. Knowing this gives us power. Really construct a life that will be beneficial and good for you. Meditate and focus on the things that are truly edifying to your being. This is long-view magic, creating willful change for yourself in the future in another life. Alternatively, if you are an old soul, and feel you have learned your lessons in the school of life, you can always focus on the divine—the higher realms. Make sure your desires for the physical realm are banished! This is why the Buddhist has non-attachment. It is not so you will not have nice things, it that so you will not crave them so much you have to reincarnate for them again.


This is what karma is, it is cause and effect. You create causes and then the effect must discharge. That is why there are no judges on dark stormy clouds that punish; it is us just slowly learning from our choices, desires and experiences. The mind is eternal, at this very moment you are the sum of all your past lives, mistakes, glories, work and beliefs. We build on those from moment to moment. This is why we should live in the now. Not in the past nor in the future should we live. Experience yourself and reality at this very moment. Try to think the highest and the best thoughts. Those thoughts over time condense and gain momentum to create effects in your life. There is no punishment or reward, only you working the everyday magic of living.



This is the last blog that I will post here on magic. Thanks for reading and I hope you learned something or at least enjoyed reading them.

  2. I have a doubt about fate x free will.
    I mean, some people say: all the things of your life are planned by Divine Providence and all your reactions to this things. The classic: this is the will of God.
    Another people say: you are the maker of your life script, you decide how the things happen.
    Personally I like much more the second option, because I like to think I have some power over my life. In your opinion, what is the true? We are the author of our life or just puppets?
    Thanks!

    1. Re-read the blog. You have free will but based off of choices in past lives and your current life things become "fixed" or fated. Once you achieve a certain level of enlightenment you realize the universe or god and you are the same thing. You are playing the acting role by incarnating and developing in this life things that need to be done, you chose them though. If you think about WILL as a quantity then the amount you have to use was aquired from the divine source, the divine cannot countermind its own will, the will you have and use is the will of god. Just like all knowledge is within the mind of god, just because you use knowledge does not mean the knowledge is not yours, you acquired it from else where.

    2. So, when I work of a high spirit, like an Archangel and I work to tune my vibration with his vibration; Im become divine like the spirit? This is the true alchemy, work to become god?
      Thanks for your explanation!!

    3. This is a powerful type of magical alchemy yes. Each archangel turns the vibration of the corresponding microcosmic aspect within you to a higher frequency. Over time and repetition all the aspect reach a very high state.

  3. May I ask, Justin, what would be best for magical development? To be focused in the now or to visualize a life(In meditation that could be done, I guess) with stability for future growth in the misteries?

    1. Focused on the now. To project into the future is to be used in magick. So, the more often you slip your mind into the future the more you are working mental magick. Basically programming your brain, that is why the more you develop your skills the more you should be focused on the NOW because fantasies of the future can cause unintended programming, especially if you do not know what certain fantasies connect with in a symbolic or archetypal way.

  4. So it's better fo feel what I am. I think I felt that from experience, Justin. When I was younger, I used to do IIH and think I would be a great magician and stuff. Today I focus on the divine. I started praticing the 'now-ness' a friend of mine who pratices zen talked about. Then things started getting better and progress was a normal thing.
    It's nice to know that I'm a part of God and responsible for my own destiny. I also realized that the inner-chattering, the mental phantasies seem to be imbalance. The more 'here' I am, the more 'me' I am. It's hard to surrender to the moment. Really hard at the beginning, but then it got better and better.
    Sorry for the long reply. I got surprised you answered =-). God be in you.
    Also, I remember somewhere you said that the Golden Dawn system was a good add to Bardon. You still recommend it?

  5. I'd also like to give a big 'thank you', because now I feel I understand the mind much better. People limit themselves all the time. The mind is unlimited, but they say to themselves 'I AM A LAWYER, I'M WORKING, I HAVE A FAMILY'. Then they create tought-patterns that limit them. Nothingness can be anything. So I'll just not-be now and focus in here. It makes so much sense. This way I can be anything!

    1. Excellent! Keep up the good work. It will go deeper and you will be surprised at what awaits when you are open and free. You will have more power when you do decide to push the universe in the direction you choose.
      I still do think there are some incredible aspects in Golden Dawn. The true secret is Imagination and Will are the two forces, the yin and yang, the plus and minus, magnetic and electric. Weild those two properly and you work as the divine on Earth.

  6. Also, I remember hearing some stuff, if you could elaborate. I was in a initiatic order once, where they told me that to be an adept I'd have to clear not only the karma from this life, but from other lives too. I remember this having a relation to some hindu scriptures and whatnot, something about causal body. I dunno. That correct?
    Also, some new age guys always talk about that life-review thing, as if the world would judge ya for every action y take. These two views always seemed a bit excessive. I had improvements in conscioussness, and I saw how that alone destroied behavior patterns I had(If it did destroy these patterns in this life, why not in another life? Why would the universe force me to go back and work in my conscioussness again if I'm already me?). Thanks a lot again. All the best =)!

  7. I ask you this because I feel it matters much more who I am. Energy training makes me a different person. Being not-being makes me a different person. And I feel the universe reacts to this. My reality seems to change when I'm depressed, happy or whatnot. Now that I'm in this state of now-ness I also feel I'm in a different place. It seems strange to me that the universe would ignore these changes and make me live everything over again. But dunno =P I'm no expert.

  8. I'd also like to ask.. my friend has a guru who awakens kundalini. He pratices yoga and says it's a great blessing. That I should go pratice with him. I feel I should do IIH, but I don't know to what extent this can be a great opportunity or if I'm missing it. What do you think?

    1. I will just answer all 3 questions here.
      First, it is a little complicated and at the same time a little too simple. Take comfort that in the grand scheme of things none of this matters, everything will be fine and all of this amounts to your true self having a grand time and learning things. Just do the work, the answers will come as they need to and when you are ready. Even if you were an awful person in one life you are who you are NOW. That is what matters. be the best you, that you can be.
      Trust your intuition, use your intellect. When you combine both you will have the best answer. Truthfully there is no wrong answer, it is ALL about learning and growing. It is not a race, there are infinite worlds and chances to explore, learn and grow. Just be who you are at your core, be good to yourself and others and explore the universe as you can and as your will directs.

  9. This is also what I feel. Thank you =-). My best to ya.

  10. Ah, I also had this question.. it's a bit interesting, by the way. You mentioned to treat people well and to treat myself well. Yes. I do that a lot. My intuition always tells me that if I do this I'll never trully suffer - I feel the universe itself is CARING for me. Even in my worst moments. It's like a web, I can feel it.
    Also, whenever I detach myself from things and give them freely, it's pretty much like that web touches me and makes me more good-energy-likey.
    Or maybe that's a whole lot of B.S and I'm just assuming things up from imagination. But I dunno. I never cared for money and money always came to me. I always cared for love, love never came - when I stoped caring, and started GIVING, girls started raining towards me.
    All the best to you =-). Am loving these conversations of ours.

    1. That is one of the big secrets of magic, why they say to do a ritual and then banish...it is to banish from your mind the desire. The ritual is to enact the desire and event "as if" it occurred and so you have released it. Once it has been released in can occur. As long as you hold a desire tight within yourself it can not actualize. That is the secret behind "being free of desire" because than all things will be yours.

  11. Had a friend of mine who always said 'love like the sun and Venus will orbit naturally around you. Give away freely'. Aye, seems acurate. Also, could ya comment a bit on my training routine? I'm a bit used to meditating, so, I do it 3h a day. Of these, 2h tough control(first exercise on bardon) and 1h pranayama. I'm able to attain pratyahara in tought control. I used to do the sensory exercises, but after stopping meditation for a while I came back with just tought control. How long ya think should be good for doing visualization and other sensory exercises for me? I was thinking maybe 1h or so of these 3h

  12. A good ol friend of mine says that the time I spend studying stuff is as important as the time I spend praticing; I like to pratice. From your experience, what is more important?

  13. Also, I see many organizations making the students take vows/oaths. Do you think this is a good thing? These oaths normally bind them to occult masters, so and so.

    1. Training times are up to the student and all about the pace, available time, and goals of the student. Think of magic like any other practice or hobby like painting. How long should someone wanting to paint practice daily? What answer is correct? Are you wishing to go pro, part time hobby, etc? Only the painter can answer and may depend on prior skill level and natural talent. I have met people who are amazing magicians who never practiced a day in their lives, they pick it up and it scares them from going forward from the power they have within. If you decide you want to start jogging who is to say what is a good and natural pace for one over another. What if someone is 400 lbs and never done any running vs another who used to do competitive swimming. Should they have the same pace, the same goals?
      You join any organization they have expectations to go along with the privileges and benefits the group provides. Some oaths were made to protect the group in times when belonging to said group could mean death.

  14. My goal is Self-Realization, just that. That and help other people get there. It seems 3 hours is going well. I do have some trouble with visualization. I already have what I want in life. My needs and desires. Now I want to be myself. Nothing but myself. The initiatic order I was into showed me I'm not myself; there are other layers of me.
    As for my personal ability, I'm able to hold my toughts well, but my visualization is pretty mediocre. As for my pace, I want progress, but I don't want to force progress; I do not mind hurting myself or harming myself as part of the path, but it's important for me that progress comes as a natural part of it =-). I ask because I do not know how long it takes for that. I've been doing 3h. I was able to reach bardon standards for degree 1 in some weeks but wanted to go deeper, and then started doing this pratyahara thing. Visualization is pretty hard, but it's coming. Thank you very much for your attention ^_^

    1. One thing people starting to learn magick, and even well on their way see to never realize is that earliest man figured out and worked successful magick. No books, barely any language of any deep complexity and they worked successful magick. Let that sink in. Take a few days and let that roll around in your mind. The concept of a book would be like us imagining super AI computers. They spent most of their time hunting, foraging and trying to survive. Their magick worked. SO, what i am trying to say is magick is not super hard or complex. In fact it is TOO EASY. It is so easy that is how it tricks people into thinking it is hard or complex. Think about how you are struggling with visualization. How many times a day do you day dream and see images in your mind's eye? Where do those profound dream images come from? Did some other wizard conjure those up? NOPE! You did. All the secrets of magick and powers you seek are within you. The trick is unleashing them. it is like being yourself, you don't fight and push to be yourself, you just let it happen. You do not spend 3 hours forcing a image to come when you day dream, you simply have thoughts on the subject and allow your mind to enter a day dream state, you soul then produces rich symbolic imagery for you to experience and if you let go enough you may even touch and experience sensations of that day dream as if it were real! No effort and possibly done in 5 min.
      Effort is the wrong direction. Allow the power to move, when you start overthinking it means you are down the wrong path.

      I will say it until I take my last breath:
      Magick is imagination and will power combined. All the rest is symbols and foci to direct the two main forces.

  15. Indeed. I do not like to overstudy things too much as well. That's why I choose bardon. It looked pretty direct, no BS. Thank ya for your time =-).

  16. Also, what's your take on that ego death issue? I see people regarding that so differently! Some people say that when you reach Self-Realization/Samadhi you'll lose all your desires and want nothing, go sit on the top of a mountain and be ther praying. Other people I see, many of them want to help society and so-and-so. Other people say they don't even exist to begin with, so why botherz? XP how did it go for ya

  17. Hey man. Since you've been helping me out a bit I tought I should share this insight I had with ya. Karma seems to be based not only on my desires, but with me. I attract what I am; so, people who are compulsive about money can't be abundance; them they be reborn in an egotistic life. People who desire love so much can't be love, so love is denied to them. That seems to be what that desire thing is about. As long as you desire something you can't be that thing. To attract stuff you must become the stuff y want to attract. Dunno if it makes sense =P or if I'm rith. Just tought that the other day and wanted to say it to ya. Great hugh, all the best.
