  • WelcomeWelcome to the Esoteric School of Shamanism and Magic

    Whether you are a wiccan beginner or an advanced shamanic practitioner, we honor your wisdom and invite you to explore our site. We are a virtual school (which means we don’t teach at any particular physical location) and our primary goal is to produce convenient, practical, hard-core magical and shamanic courses that offer you the information you need–without all the smoke and mirrors. While these topics have traditionally been shrouded by the “cloak and dagger” mentality, we strive to offer these materials in a straightforward, no-nonsense style.

    Most of our courses cover basic techniques that every magician and shaman needs to know, including the four directions, elemental magic, magical tools, divination, tarot, spellwork, energy healing, psychic communication, out-of-body travel and psychic self-defense. Our courses come in several formats: ebook, multi-media home study and an interactive shamanism Apprenticeship program.


    Through our courses, our
    students are learning how to:
     With these tools, our students
    can do a lot, including:

    Work directly with the elements air, fire, water, and earth
    Use the magical tools wand, athame, chalice, and plate
    Do divination and communicate psychically
    Design, test, and cast spells that are appropriate, safe, and effective
    Use universal laws to manifest their desires
    Heal themselves and others of many health conditions
    Communicate psychically
    Influence their environment to create what they want
    Defend themselves against psychic attack
    Create safe and effective spells when necessary
    Release worries and doubts

    The reality is that magic does and has always existed on this planet. It is real, reliable and effective. Tribal people regarded what we call “magic” as ordinary knowledge — they didn’t attend esoteric or mystery schools to learn magic because it was available as everyday information. Today, in the age of computers and the information superhighway, many of us long for those simpler tribal times — more magical times. Those times have arrived, and we have the magical tools you seek.

    The Esoteric School of Shamanism and Magic is open to practitioners of all faiths and doctrines on the basis that Truth is the same no matter the form of practice. If you are interested in any magical or shamanic practice or technique, including the following, we welcome you: wiccan spells, witch spells, witchcraft spells, astral projection for beginners, casting magick spells, aboriginal spirituality, native american rituals, native american spirituality, elemental magic, high magick, candle magic, Aleister Crowley, druids or book of shadows.

     

    Studying Magic



    Thanks for your interest in magic and shamanism! Because the art and science of magic are such vast topics, we offer you some basic guidelines on how to study magic, including an outline of the basic topics that are important to learn. This article includes the following topics:

    What is Magic?


    Magic is a precision science! It is also:
    The science of deliberate creation.
    The science of effective prayer.
    The science of manifesting Higher Will (God’s Will) on the energetic and material planes.
    The science of heightened awareness, selective perception, and dynamic, harmonious relationships.
    The study of intention (as per Aleister Crowley, one of the greatest magicians).
    The system of creation, not coercion.

    Note: The word manipulation is often used in conjunction with magic, but manipulation simply means the use of the hands. It should be an “OK” word without a lot of charge, but currently it is used mostly to mean coercion. Look it up!

    Every intentional act is a magical act! Magic gives us the ability to communicate with beings on all levels, and allows us to understand, through direct experience, the actual workings of the Universe.

    Magic is the traditional path of spiritual growth.
    Magic is not extraordinary knowledge. It is the “normal” way of life. We’ve just lost access to it. When you have this kind of knowledge in your understanding, you have the ability to resolve spiritual questions that otherwise become catechism. From a magician’s point of view, catechism is not acceptable, since a magician must experience and verify everything for him or herself. It avoids the trap of dogma. In past time, having a magical foundation was essential so that we could go and talk directly to God, the devil, etc.

    Magic is necessary to effective religious practice,
    In religious practice, a priest is qualified to perform rituals, but not to create them. Only the magician has the ability to create because he has the tools of divination to test the rituals he creates.

    There is some confusion as to how to spell the word “magic.” There are three different commonly used spellings: magic, magick and majick. Eliphas Levi first used the form “magick” to differentiate religious or ceremonial magick from stage magic.

    Rules of the Road


    Thanks to Reverend George Dew of the Church of Seven Arrows for researching and putting these rules together. While similar to the Wiccan Rede, we feel these rules are stated more practically and pragmatically for everyday use.

    Rules of the Road are the set of Universal ethics that must be followed for safe and effective magical practice. The Rules of the Road are not the same as morals (what our culture teaches us is right and wrong) or ethics (what we personally believe to be right and wrong), as both morals and ethics change over time. Particular morals or ethics may or may not agree with the Rules of the Road.

    To practice magic safely and effectively you must know and abide by the Rules of the Road since, as far as we know, the Rules of the Road operate whether you know of them, believe in them, or agree with them. Additionally, normal scientific physical laws and principles must be followed.

    Two Major Rules:

    1. Whatever is done to the environment or to other beings in the environment brings similar effects upon the doer.
    This is often called the Law of Karma. The Universe doesn’t care why some action was taken, or whether the doer is trained in magic or aware of the Rules of the Road. Although many different teachers have stated this law in many different ways, including the Golden Rule, it is especially important for magicians. A magician’s acts are consciously and willfully directed, and are therefore more powerful than the acts of untrained or unfocused people. So the effect of this law in relation to a magician’s acts becomes much more powerful. This applies to both constructive and destructive acts.

    Note: While many religious and other practices consider that Karma can carry from lifetime to lifetime, it is our experience that the Universe operates under a system of “pay as you go.” In other words, the effect of any act upon the environment (or upon beings in the environment) comes back to you within a relatively short period of time – within hours to days.

    2. The magician judges the “goodness” or “badness” of his or her own acts, whether they are conscious or unconscious acts, on the basis of what the Universe reflects back on him or her. The same is true of judging others, entire communities, states or nations.
    On a practical level, one can judge one’s compliance with the Universe’s standards of right and wrong, or good and bad, in terms of one’s level of health, soundness of social relationships, luck with appliances, and sufficiency of food, clothing and shelter. If your “luck” seems consistently bad, then you’re probably acting contrary in some way to the Rules of the Road, regardless of what your intentions are.

    Ethical Laws of the Rules of the Road

    These ethical laws will give you a more detailed standard by which to measure your acts, or the acts of others, to determine whether they are in accordance with Rules of the Road. Judge any act of magic by these laws before doing it.
    Do nothing that will harm another being unless you are willing to suffer like or greater harm. Note that what the Universe considers harm may be different from what our culture teaches as harm.

    Don’t bind another being unless you are willing to be likewise bound. This applies to many love spells and some kinds of healing rituals.

    Never use magic for show, pride, or vainglory. Using magic to show off, to prove a point, or from a place of injured pride usually results in side-bands (undesirable side effects) to the operation that will bring very undesirable backlash from the Universe.

    Never set an extremely high price for the use of magic (especially divination, healing, or spells) based on your having special knowledge. With some operations that take significant man hours, such as divination, it appears by our observation to be appropriate to charge the same fee as any other professional might charge per hour in your local area.

    Don’t use any special word, symbol, incantation, or spell unless you understand thoroughly and completely its mechanics, content, and intent! Be very wary of using other people’s operations if you wish to avoid “frying” yourself, either figuratively or literally!

    Never do a spell without first doing a divination to determine a) if you should do it, and b) exactly what needs to be dealt with. Modern American social values and overt appearances of a situation are not trustworthy guides for a magician wishing to avoid bad karma. In other words, there may be hidden factors in the situation, which cause the doing of a spell to be against Rules of the Road.

    TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT THROUGH, AND DO IT RIGHT!

    Where to Begin Studying


    The art and study of magick is, as we’ve mentioned before, a vast study that can take years. In our observation and experience, the best place to begin studying is with the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Because everything in the Universe is composed of the four elements, this study is literally part of everything else you will study in magic. Thus, to start at the beginning, start with the element Air. In addition, the lessons for each additional element are based on the skills you develop when you learn about Air (such as energy flowing and energy handling). Air is a safe element to work with–powerful, but safe–so it’s an excellent place to begin. Here is a brief summary of what each of the elements corresponds to:

    Air
    Seeing, breathing, speaking, hearing, planning, thinking, believing, memorizing, communicating, learning, teaching, information, ideas, wisdom, understanding, worry, sensation, awareness, opinions, data, memory, mind.

    Fire
    Energy, power, will, desire, anger, pain, motivation, radiance, passion, initiative, aggression, limitation, endeavor, activity, creative, willingness, urge, inspired, excitable, courage, bravado, compulsion, fanaticism, frustration, resentment, rage, freedom.

    Water
    Emotions, feelings, intuition, compassion, empathy, sympathy, knowing, devotion, quest, aspiration, intention, appreciation, integrity, harmony, beauty, balance, serenity, fluidity, grief, apathy, joy, love.

    Earth
    Strength, money, foundation, endurance, structure, mundane world, serenity of beingness, solidity, boundaries, permanence, land, commerce, products, confidence, loyalty, persistence, stubbornness, fortress, security, anchor, barter, substance, body, base, possessions.

    Since magical tools, such as the wand, athame, chalice and plate, are extensions of the basic four elements and your own energies, they should be studied and handled only after you develop a working knowledge and understanding of the four elements themselves. The same is true of the more advanced topics of divination, tarot and spellwork, which are directly related to your understanding of the elements.

    Studying as an Apprentice


    The arts of magic and shamanism have traditionally been passed down from teacher to apprentice, with the apprentice spending years in the service of and under the guidance of the teacher. Since the tribal system no longer exists (for the most part) in our modern world, it is more difficult to re-create this relationship. However, it is still possible to study as an apprentice under a certified teacher.

    The Esoteric School has created an Apprenticeship Program that adapts the traditional apprenticeship process to fit the modern world that makes use of the technologies of web, teleconference and multi-media.

    Because the study of magic is such a vast area of study, we break it down into seven separate areas of study for your convenience. Each of these areas is discussed in further detail in later sections.


    The Four Elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth


    There are many paths to developing magical and shamanic abilities. At the foundation of all these paths, though, is an understanding of the four elements of magic: air, fire, water and earth. One of the basic tenets of magical studies is that everything in this Universe is made up of some combination of these four elements, and if you understand and know how to work with these elements, you can understand (and create) anything you desire.

    That’s why four element magic is the first area of study for our apprentices – it is at the heart of everything in the Universe, including magical powers and abilities. For instance, you can develop clairvoyance and telepathy, which is access to knowledge not available to the five senses, by developing and working with your water element. Water, being the language of Spirit, allows you to access almost any information (or emotions) at a Spiritual level. Another ability, levitation, is the result of increasing your air element and decreasing your earth element. And telekinesis is the ability to channel your fire energy toward a specific object. For instance, we teach our students to begin using their telekinetic ability by throwing firebolts at a candle flame. They know they have begun to develop that ability when they can make the flame jump and split by pointing their finger at it.

    Beyond the development of these psychic or magical abilities, however, the four elements help us develop and follow our birth visions, listen to our Spirit guidance, and generally live more creative and peaceful lives. By understanding the basic “makeup” and laws that drive our Universe, we can learn to go with the flow rather than swim upstream. This is the true benefit of four element magic.

    Is the development of magical abilities great fun? Absolutely! It’s useful, too, for self-defense, personal power and more. But it’s also the beginning of a deep understanding of the driving forces of life. It’s a strong first step onto the path of direct knowledge and spiritual scientism.

    When the shamans were kicked out of the tribe centuries ago, the world lost access to such direct knowledge. Now we need the shamans more than ever, and we invite you to step on this path by studying the four elements of magic!

    Hand Magic and Self Defense


    As magicians, it’s important to study the area of self-defense carefully since we have considerable power and force. The inappropriate use of that power and force can cause Universal backlash. We must be especially careful to control our tempers and not use our abilities reactively.

    According to Western magical practice, “You have a right to be here and follow your own path so long as you hinder no one else in doing likewise.” This foundational principle asserts our right to exist and follow our own path and by extension, our right to defend ourselves against those who might seek to prevent us from walking our path.

    As you grow in magical ability, you will inevitably attract beings on different levels that seek to interfere with your path in some way. Writer Clarissa Estes, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves, so accurately states, “If you have beauty in your life, know that it will attract the dark as well as the light. Don’t be surprised. Be prepared.”

    Here’s a good rule of thumb to use when it comes to self-defense: “In cases of direct and violent personal harm you are entitled to defend yourself by any means available, provided you did nothing to encourage or provoke the attack.”

    Basic Magical Tools


    Firebowl, Wand, Athame, Chalice and Plate

    Firebowl
    Throughout history almost every spiritual, magical and religious system on earth has used the Firebowl (sometimes called a “thurible”). While it has primarily been used for cleansing and purification of areas, people and objects, the Firebowl can also be used as an aid to meditation or divination. To find out more about the how the Firebowl is used for magical purposes…

    Wand
    As Magicians, we use the Wand as an extension of our own energies. Contrary to much of the popular literature, the Wand is an Air tool and not a Fire tool, meaning it can handle only Air energies. Like the tools for the other three elements, the Wand magnifies our “reach” since it can handle more air energies than we can with our hands. The Wand is a great tool to start with since it can’t do as much damage as other tools, such as the Athame (magical knife). The Wand allows beginners to practice many techniques that more advanced magicians would do barehanded, or with an Athame.

    Magicians and shamans use the Wand for communication, healing and shielding. Unlike what is portrayed in Harry Potter movies, the Wand is only one of many magical tools, and can only handle air energies. Throwing lightning bolts or other types of fire energy through your Wand will cause it catch fire! To find out more about the Wand, how to make a Wand, how to store and protect your Wand, how to personalize your Wand so only you can use it, and how to use a Wand for magical and shamanic purposes.

    Athame
    Like the other magical tools, we use the Athame to extend our own energies and magnify power. The Athame is the magical tool of the Fire element. Many of the magical procedures performed with the Wand in Harry Potter movies should actually be performed with the Athame, which easily handles all color bands of Fire energy.

    The Athame is commonly used by magicians for firebolts, lightning bolts, shielding, healing, banishments and self defense. It is also used to create sacred space and full cast circles for ritual. Like other tools, your Athame should be “keyed” or personalized to your own energies, so that only you can use it. To find out how to select, key, store, protect and use your Athame for magical and shamanic purposes.

    Chalice
    The Chalice is the tool of the Water element, and Water is the language of Spirit, so the Chalice could properly be said to be the tool of communication with Spirit. Magicians and shamans use the Chalice for scrying, divination, psychic communication, healing, creating sacred space, purification, ceremony, ritual and blessing.Unknown to most, the Chalice is also effective for self-defense against certain kinds of entities, and can be used with the Plate (the Earth element tool) for shielding and protection.

    Like the other magical tools, your Chalice should be properly selected and keyed to your own energies. To find out how to select, key, store, protect and use your Chalice for magical and shamanic purposes.

    Plate
    The tool of the Earth element, the Plate is a magical tool commonly used for shielding, healing, protection and self-defense. Also known as the “pantacle,” the Plate is a powerful healing tool, capable of knitting and healing broken bones in a matter of hours.

    The Plate is often used in conjunction with other magical tools for protection and shielding, such as during Tarot readings, divination or scrying. The Plate can also protect and shield magical tools, such as Tarot decks and pendulums, when they are not in use.

    Divination


    Fortune tellers, psychics, palmists, intuitive healers, shamans and magicians all use the art of divination. Divination is the art of accessing information that is not directly available to the five senses.

    There are many forms of divination, including direct and indirection divination. Examples of divination include the Tarot, I-Ching, pendulum, scrying in water bowl or Chalice, and the Firebowl. Each of these forms of divination is suitable for different purposes. Some, like the Tarot, are good for deciphering complex situations that include a lot of different factors and influences (such as stopping legislation from passing in Congress). Others, like the pendulum, are useful for simple and direct answers, such as whether a certain herb will be useful for your healing.

    Tarot
    The Tarot is a powerful and practical magical tool for divination and spellwork and working the Tree of Life, and is one of the core arts in the study of magic. The underlying symbology and concepts found in the Tarot go back thousands of years. For instance, in the early Christian Church, around 600 AD, the priests had little memo cards with pictures on them. The gypsies also used similar cards. The old emerald tablets in Egypt also had pictures of plates and discs. These concepts are very old but they are at the root of modern day tarot card meanings.

    Because there are so many different decks, spreads and card meanings out there, it can be difficult to know where to begin. We recommend starting with the Waite-Rider deck, which is a straightforward deck with practical symbology. The cards are easy to interpret and it takes the least amount of time to learn the meanings.

    We’ve discovered that two basic Tarot spreads or layouts, a simple way to interpret cards and a basic history of the Tarot is all you need to become a proficient reader. From there, you can branch out to using other decks, such as the Thoth deck. To get a comprehensive, basic start in the Tarot.

    Sonics


    Sonics is the study of sound to produce magical effects in ourselves or the world around us. Sound of any kind is a form of energy that creates physical, mental, emotional and spiritual effects. We are affected by sounds even if we can’t hear them, including ultra-sonics (sounds too high for our ears to pick up) and sub-sonics (sounds too low for our ears to hear).

    Navajo healing singers understand the effects of sound (or sonics) and can heal mental, physical and emotional conditions using only sound. These singers may use voice, rattles, flutes and drums. Their work demonstrates one of the most advanced uses of sonics.

    Back to the Top of the Page


    Spellwork


    A spell is any psychic or magical operation that combines a number of elements (air, fire, water and earth) and/or program factors that produce a particular result over a period of time. A spell could also be defined as a formalized intention that is carried out over time until completion. We use spells when we are unable to directly affect a situation or condition, especially when dealing with complex factors or barriers which require a lot of force to overcome.

    By the above definition, chants, litanies, sonics, voodoo dolls (simulacra magic) and directors and limiters are all spells. Prayers are also spells. Spells are energy matrices programmed to build momentum and overcome obstacles until the end goal is manifested. Unless otherwise programmed with directors and limiters, spells take the path of least resistance to the goal. While the goal may be appropriate relative to Rules of the Road, the path of the spell may be highly destructive (and not appropriate according to Rules of the Road).

    According to Seven Arrows research, when the entire civilized world prayed that something would rescue Germany from the inflationary depression after World War I (because it was dragging everyone down economically) without specifying what or how, those prayers brought Hitler to power. Hitler tried twice before to take power but failed both times. At the same time, the Jews were fervently praying to return to the Holy Land. However, at the time the Jewish population was too large to successfully return to the Holy Land (they would have been killed off by the Arabs) – only a small population could successfully return. The Jewish prayer tied into the prayers that brought Hitler to power, and by the path of least resistance Hitler’s methods reduced the Jewish population so that their prayer of returning to the Holy Land could be realized.

    A person involved in a meditation group, which taught people to get what they wanted using white light had similar trouble. The meditation group taught people to put the thing they wanted to manifest on a bulletin board and sit there imagining what it would be like to have it, holding in mind no harm. A woman with a difficult life wanted to pay off her house and car and receive a reliable income. She took a picture of her mortgage and wrote “paid” on it. She did the same thing with the car, and then asked for $250.00 free and clear. When she was asked whether she was worried about how this manifestation would come about she replied that she was not. Then, her husband who had been a very stable person, instead of going to work one day stopped at the liquor store to buy liquor, bought a gun and killed himself. The life insurance paid off the house and car, and gave the woman $250.00 free and clear. He was the weakest link in the chain so, by taking the path of least resistance, the spell worked through him.

    Before designing or launching any spell you must be very clear on the use of directors and limiters, basic magical operational laws and the terminology involved with spellwork. Remember, the Universe doesn’t care what you intend to do just what you actually do. Magic is a precision science and altered procedures produce altered results!

    The Four Elements as a Magical and Shamanic Path

    How to Use the Four Magical Elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth

    There are many paths to developing magical and shamanic abilities. At the foundation of all these paths, though, is an understanding of the four elements of magic: Air, Fire, Water and Earth. One of the basic tenets of magical studies is: “…everything in this Universe is made up of some combination of these four elements, and if you understand and know how to work with these elements, you can understand (and create) anything you desire.”

    Learning to handle and use the four elements directly enables you to harness Universal forces for healing, personal power, self defense, psychic communication and more. Ready to get started? Learn how to do four element magic with our Multi Media Four Element Courses.

    Psychic development is a study of the advanced use of our spirit perceptics, our Spirit’s abilities.

Through the exercises presented in this book and experiences, we will investigate and determine—what are the properties and capabilities of a soul—when, where, and how it functions. The exercises in this book will also help you to begin accessing information that you can’t possibly know through your five senses.
