Energy Raising in Wicca (Cone of Power):
Magic requires the intent or the power of the Will. The Will (of a person or group of people) `works’ the energy, ad this energy creates the desired effect. In order to do magic, the strength of Will, and an ability to raise energy are required. These come with much training and practise.
Raising & working Energy- can be achieved with practise of the following methods and techniques. Most of these work because they change the mind-state or Consciousness of the person.
1 Meditations, Yoga & deep breathing techniques to calming the body & mind and creating inner peace.
*2 Repetitive singing, chanting & dancing to reach trance-states.
*3 Rhythmic drumming, clapping or even blood control using scourging (whips!)
4 Taking alcohol or other mind-altering substances to reach altered states (doesn’t mean you’ll then be in a fully aware state to wield your Will!)
5 Sex / Great Rite (which affects breathing, rhythmic stimulation, pleasure and altered states!)
In our public rituals, we work with technqiues 2 & 3 as listed above for raising energy in aa wiccan circle.
This is where, within a consecrated Wicca Circle-space, participating members will link hands, do a chant, and move in a spiral-dance manner. (video demo coming soon)
Cone of Power – is said to be created when a group of magicians/ wiccans generate energy inside a consecrated circle (sacred space), and pour forth all their energies from around the Circle. The energies raised will rise higher in a cone.
