Each of the seven main chakras are connected to specific organs, glands and body systems and each chakra is connected to a color vibration frequency. (These are outlined in more detail below). These energy centers are coded with information that can be in the form of a color vibration, ultra-violet ray, radio or micro wave, or to another person’s aura. Our chakras radiate energy vibrations as well as receive the energy of our environment, including the people we are in contact with. Have you ever noticed how another person’s mood effects your own?
Wondering about the hows and whys of magic? Today we’re going to take a look at some basic techniques such as grounding and shielding, as well as what makes magic effective, why some people don’t bother with it, and the simplest way to craft your own spell.
How to Center
You may at some point hear someone in the Pagan community — or in a book, or on a website — refer to the practice of centering. Much likegrounding and shielding, in many traditions it’s crucial that you learn to do this before you begin working magic. Why? Because it’s the beginning of energy work, and if your tradition’s magical practices are based upon the manipulation of energy, then you’ll need to learn to center.
If you’ve done any meditation before, it may be a bit easier for you to center, because it uses many of the same techniques. Here’s how to get started.
Do keep in mind that each magical tradition has its own definition of what centering actually is. This is a simple exercise that can work for you, but if your magical practice has a different viewpoint of what centering is and how to do it, try some different options.
