Does Magic Really Work?

One of Many Ways to Use these Two Great Stones
Both Tiger’s Eye and Bloodstone offer a plethora of attributes to be explored by the active crystal and gemstone magician. In this post I’ll be highlighting how to use them in combination to greatly bolster the power of your magical Will and add POWER to any magical operation.
It’s very simple…
Bloodstone to Grow a Field of Willpower
THE FIRST TIME YOU ENACT THIS EXERCISE CHOOSE A CLEAR, SIMPLE INTENTION TO WORK AROUND. IF YOU ARE TIRED, CHOOSE “WAKING UP”, OR RECEIVING A CHARGE OF WAKEFUL ENERGY. IF YOU’RE BROKE, INTEND TO FIND OR RECEIVE NEW AND HELPFUL MONEY ASAP. IF YOU CAN THINK OF NO IMMEDIATE NEED (WELL CONGRATS HONESTLY) JUST SET YOUR INTENTION TO BE INSPIRED WITH THE APPROPRIATE NEW IDEA FOR YOUR PATH. ONCE YOU HAVE THE OBJECT OF YOUR WILL, PROCEED.
Taking a piece of bloodstone into your receptive hand, open to the stone and feel it’s raw, essential power pulsing and flowing into you. This is essence of Mars; red, strong, undeniable and fearless. It will be easy, after a moment, to understand why Roman soldiers once carried this stone for protection, courage, and victory in battle.
Intend to harness the Will offered by the stone. You should take a moment to grasp the concept of undefined Will as a magical force of Nature. Yes, you have a will of your own (agency, intentions etc.), and at times you express a Magical Will (a souped-up version of the former, with an element of causal force), but Will is also a fundamental and causal force inherent to reality.
Some people express this when they claim evolution is the Universe’s Will to live and experience itself through myriad forms and levels of consciousness. Others would point to inevitability as a demonstration of Will, i.e. a thing will happen due to processes currently in motion, so what will be, will be.
Your magical Will should be just as much matter-of-fact as is rain due to the cycle of evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. One way to actualize this mindset is to view Will as a natural, causal force that you can unite with in order to direct some small portion of it into your Art.
Among other things bloodstone is a vessel of transmission for this Causal Will. Draw abundantly from the endless pool of this force, pulling it from the stone, into your receptive hand, and directing it to fill your body. Grow this force into a lightly humming, red field that moves outward from your body and into a spherical form with you at the center. (Some practitioners report that a cloud of energy comes more naturally, and this too is fine.)
If you have knowledge of the chakra system, the Solar Plexus is a great vehicle for harnessing this power and acting as it”s central point. So too the third eye may be used for this purpose.
If you aren’t a student of the chakras, or if you prefer, simply allow the field to grow from the stone in your hand and center it at a point in your mind that seems or feels appropriate. It will be easy, as the stone lends itself to this work.
Allow this field of Will to grow stronger and stronger, and just as you start to sense an eagerness within the energy, an anticipation toward ACTING, begin to infuse the field, or cloud, of Will-Force with your current intention.
From here you have only to marry your Will with the Will you have raised from the stone and watch it grow more intense by the second. Do not allow the sphere or cloud to get much bigger, and in this way you are asserting control over your essential Will. When ready, that is when you feel you have amassed sufficient force to overtake your goal, take the Tiger’s Eye into your projective hand.
Tiger’s Eye to Harness, Sharpen, and Wield the Field of Will-Power You Have Made
Tiger’s Eye has the property or attribute of “forming your Will”. Immediately call power into your intent directly from the Tiger’s Eye and form it into the right tool for the task at hand. This could be a sword, a hand (for grabbing etc.), a ball of healing energy, a red bolt of lightning that will explode into “Aha!” and so on. Give your Will a form through the Tiger’s Eye, and I mean direct the mental command for this to occur right through the stone and into yourself.
Quickly hereafter, join the formed Will with the sphere or cloud of Will-Force. You instantly “pick up”, so to speak, all the will-in-waiting you created via the Bloodstone and begin to integrate and harness this into the Will formed by the Tiger’s Eye.
Wielding your tool or weapon, FEEL it collect ALL the power you have raised up to this point. Visualize this awesome utility of magical will you have constructed going into the intention you have set and say “I… WILL…. THIS!”.
Now ACTUALLY drive your Will Power home; send it into the essence of what you have intended and declare victoriously: “I… WILL… IT!!!” As you do and say this, see in your mind’s eye, which can be accessed between and just slightly above your physical eyes, your desired result happening as if right here and now.
Be in the time and space of victory. Engage the sights, sounds, smells of the reality you intend to create. Let the elation of success roll over and through your body.
Send the last of your will into this experience and do it with such force as to engage the whole body. Tense your muscles into the act of will until they tremble and quake, and then relax them entirely.
Let go of the stream of willpower you have projected. Release the vision/experience completely.
If all is in order you will enjoy the fruits of your labor right away or in the near future, appropriate to the nature of your intention. Remember these two things in all that you do:
Magic will always take the path of least resistance to accomplish what you program it to do.
Magic is an influencer or curator force. This means simply that magical forces work to influence other forces toward the desired outcome of the caster, and/or to organize other forces in a way that is most conducive to the desired outcome.
If you don’t see the outcome you wanted, don’t be discouraged. Magic takes practice, and every magician has his or her strong and weak areas of operation. Just go over the process again (and again!) and look for ways you can blend yourself into the forces involved and take charge of the action.
