Wicca, also termed Pagan Witchcraft, is a contemporary Pagan new religious movement. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant.
Hi my name is Emily and I live in Canada I just thought I would send this out to all the teens.
I am 13 and my mother has been practicing meditation for a few years well ever since I can remember really. Anyway I had been having a lot of problems with my homework so my mother suggested that I try meditation, you can imagine what my first reply was lol.
A few days later I thought I would give this a try so I switched off all music and got into the position and gave it a go. Eventually falling to sleep on my first try, yep no home work done that time so next afternoon after school I gave it another go and sure enough ten minutes in I began to feel calm and more relaxed, determined not to fall asleep this time I put my mother’s egg timer on for ten minutes before I started. Well the timer rang out and I felt refreshed and very tempted to switch the tv on in my room but resisted and opened my homework book. I must say I found it easier to concentrate and completed half my essay before dinner. Mum asked me how I went on and I said it really works, well she said why not try a chant while meditating, ok what do I say? Mother wrote down a chant for me after out meal and the next day after school I tried it, it really helps and I still have time to hang out with my friends and my home work is handed in on time now.
So go on give it a try after all homework has to be done if you want your grades. Here is the chant my mother gave me below to use while meditating, hope it works for you, don’t be put off if you drop to sleep, give it a go, what have you to loose?
Here is the chant my mother gave me below but you can even make your own chantup it can be fun as well:
I close my eyes so I may see A calmed place to study I need my grades a must indeed And in this life I will succeed.
Well this is the meditation chant I use and it really works, just ten minutes out of your day is all that’s needed to improve your concentration and improve your grades at school. I hope this works well for all other teens.

Healing with crystals is magic. Many crystals have healing properties that you can discover
Crystals vibrate to at different frequencies to enhance healing.
Quartz crystals have excellent healing properties. Quartz also has the ability to transform an imbalanced energy field. When you feel stressed the crystal can balance your energies and revitalize you.
Others minerals besides quartz crystals – display healing properties. Small quartz crystals left in water will ionize the water and is a good drink for healing.
You can use crystals yourself to heal or find a qualified healer. Most crystal healing is guided to the healer by Spirit – who will tell the healer which crystals will be most effective and the patterns the crystals should be placed on or around the person’s body. The length of time used with the crystals will vary with each patient and healer. The healer must determine the person’s frequency and attune it to the crystals that will create healing and balance. All healing is about placing the body in balance.
Treatments will vary in length and number of times required. They may not always work.
Owning a crystal that you carry with you – or keep in the area you spend most of your time – can enhance the healing after you work with the healer.
It’s always good to have a few quartz crystals around your home to balance the energies, even if you do not need healing.
Many people connect the colour frequency of a specific chakra with that of the stone being used. For example – if one were healing the throat chakra – one would use one or more blue stones placed on the throat chakra alone – or in patterns.
HEALING STONES AND THEIR USES

Ancient Civilizations often used crystals for healing, magic, spiritual and energy work. They understood how the energies of crystals amplify the healing process.
Atlanteans allegedly erected huge crystal healing temples. Their civilization was based on the use of stored – and directed use of crystal technology.
The ancient Mayans, Hebrew, Vedic and Native American cultures used crystals and gemstones both inspiritual rituals and as aids to physical healing. Those who practice the ways of the ancient cultures continue to use crystals as healing tools.
Crystals were used in the earliest shamanic rites as tools for initiation and healing, as talisman, and meditation.

Spiritual healing can benefit emotional issues & can be a wonderful alternative healing method for most stress related issues
Healing in itself it is non-denominational, if you have a faith you will find that it is welcomed as much as if you have none.
Spiritual, Energy Healing & Self-Healing Technique.
What is Spiritual Energy Healing?
Illnesses that affect us, the issues that upset our minds are ultimately rooted in mental, emotional & spiritual imbalance. Energy healing is the transfer of universal or spiritual energy from the practitioner into the subtle energy field of the client to heal the self, allowing the body, mind & emotions to shift & heal themselves. Energy healing holds the belief that there is a universal energy field that can be tapped into & channelled to enhance the energy of others.
Our own life force or subtle energy system is based around our many chakras, of which we have hundreds; they are like energy ports within our physical & spiritual bodies. Chakras can become unbalanced during times of emotional upset or physical disease. As we are holistic beings, one imbalance, if not resolved can create more imbalance until we become unwell or unhappy & dis-empowered by our own lives.
Energy healing methods have been used by cultures & traditions across the world since the beginning of mankind. The simplest example is a mother holding a child while feeling love for the child. It is simply sending loving energy to another being, place, or thing. Spiritual healing allows spirit to be present during sessions, as of course your own spiritual self is. This can result in clairvoyant insight as to what is happening with your life as well as the session itself.
Where does the energy go?
Good question & a bit like asking how long is a piece of string. I am the channel – You are the recipient, the energy however is just as individual. It will go to where it is best needed, regardless of where you may wish it to go, so we cannot direct it specifically. Your own spiritual self will be the director of all energy that comes to you.
How long does it last within my system?
If it brings any realisation to you – permanent. Although on the whole, energy stays within you for about 3 days.
What is it for? Can it cure?
Anything that makes you feel weary of life & there can be no guarantees of what it will remove as that is a spiritual matter. I find that it best suits emotional issues where peace & resolution need to be found, but have also found it beneficial with physical issues.
You may find that you still have the same issues after, but that they are seen in a new light, you can deal with them as blocks are removed. You may find that issues that have held you back no longer exist. The what’s & how’s are not down to you & me, but to a higher energy.
I don’t suggest that spiritual energy healing should replace appropriate medical attention, if you have a physical issue, get medical assistance as spiritual energy healing is an alternative, extra burst of energy to help with western medicine.
Western medicine lacks an understanding of self, especially the holistic energy self, the Chinese call our life force “Chi”, Indians “Prana”. This is a drug free means of allowing your own spiritual body to enhance your own life force, non-intrusive, empowering & calming.
Spiritual meditation aims to help a person dig deep into the inner self in order to discover the wisdom and tranquillity that lie within. It can be done by developing awareness, harmony and natural order into life through meditation. Different techniques can be employed in order to achieve this.
Different meditation techniques have been developed since ancient times in the effort to help people experience a higher state of consciousness. This usually makes use of the ability to clear the mind of distractions and focusing mainly on the self. Here are some of the techniques that most people use to get in touch with their spiritual consciousness through meditation.
One of the ancient techniques in meditation used is one that Buddhists practice.
This technique is called mindfulness meditation and involves learning how to be aware about the things that one does and the things that is happening around at the very moment. This type of meditation technique can take time to master and involves four steps.
The first step is the abstinence from the five moral rules which is killing, stealing, lying, sexual misconduct, and the use of toxic substances. The second step is the practice of Anapana Meditation for three and a half days where a person is taught how to meditate while focusing on one’s breathing. The third step involves purifying the mind which involves self-observation for six and half days. The fourth step involves speaking and living an extroverted life. This meditation technique closes with the practice of metta bhavana which involves sharing the purity developed with others.
Another type of meditation technique is Transcendental Meditation, the most debated and researched one among the many meditation types. This type of meditation aims to help one attain enlightenment if practiced on the long term. This meditation technique also can help increase intelligence and creativity. This technique does not require the mastery of difficult breathing techniques or the use of some special postures. A person needs only to learn how to concentrate by sitting in a relaxed and comfortable posture and position.
Another meditation technique is the vibrational meditation which involves the repetition of a mantra, a particular word or a sound that becomes the focal point of the meditation process. The vibrations that are produced by making the word or sound is experienced passing through the body. During meditation, the individual is to concentrate on nothing else but the sound as it is uttered again and again.
The Walking Meditation is one of the many other types of meditation techniques that may help one get in touch with one’s inner self. It involves learning to focus the mind while walking. Although this meditation technique can be difficult to practice it can prove to be very beneficial. This type of meditation involves focusing on the feet while meditating and trying not to let the mind wander away from every step taken.
These different types of spiritual meditation techniques take time to master. It may be hard for some people to get used to focusing on one thing, due most of the time to the influence of the world in general and how it has clouded and cluttered the mind with thoughts of problems, worries and stress. But with regular practice and eventually making a certain type of meditation technique a regular habit, people may be able to look into their inner selves more effectively and then achieve a higher sense of consciousness that may help one attain inner peace.

Core Meditation Method Research Beginner Intro Body
For those who prefer magic to weapons, controlling the flow of mana is a useful and essential skill. Meditation is necessary to control mana, but because it requires hours of cultivation to perfect, free-form meditation has been poorly documented, which, as a result, has stunted its progress.
Thankfully, with the recent influx of research on how to effectively utilize mana, data regarding meditation methods has significantly increased.
Amongst the collected data, there have been new findings on how to recover mana fairly easily and train the mind at the same time. In light of the new discoveries, I have decided to leave a written record so that others may benefit.
In order to control the flow of mana, it is absolutely necessary for you to find a place where you can be alone and focus your mind and body, and calm your soul. Although this method is ideal in theory, it is highly impractical in practice. After expending all that energy to get to a focused state that focus is instantly shattered the moment the meditator resumes his normal activities.
The traditional meditation method is not practical for someone who engages in everyday activities such as eating, walking, and mingling with others, or for someone in the middle of a battle, which hardly makes it a useful method for controlling and recovering mana on a daily basis. The new meditation method that resolves those issues is called the Core Meditation Method.
The Core Meditation Method does not emphasize focusing one’s mind.
Instead, it revolves around an element known as the Breathing Technique. The key to the Breathing Technique is to focus on inhaling and exhaling which keeps the mind from getting distracted, and at the same time, allows you to achieve a peaceful state of mind. If you practice and become advanced in this meditation method, you will experience a significant reduction in your mana usage.
Even those who are just beginners will notice a difference as they experience a surge of mana within themselves. In this section, I introduce a simple and basic training method of the Core Meditation Method so that those attempting it for the first time will be able to easily follow along. (After training awhile, you will discover that you are able to quickly get into a peaceful state of mind by simply exercising breath control, which is the focal point of this method.)
For beginners, trying to achieve a peaceful state of mind while moving around is not easy. Therefore, at the beginning of training, get in your most comfortable posture, though I suggest sitting rather than lying down or standing up.
Fix your eyes on something in front of you that you can comfortably stare at. Fixing the eyes on an object is essential for beginners because it keeps the mind from getting distracted.
3. Breathing Technique
Once you reach an advanced level, you will be able to control breathing even when it goes off rhythm, but for beginners, it is best to try and maintain the most relaxing and steady breathing possible. The most important element of the Breathing Technique for beginners is counting while inhaling and exhaling.
The reason for this is to avoid being distracted by what the eyes see and ears hear. Try to empty your mind, focus solely on the breathing, and start counting. As you count while emptying the mind, this strategy will prevent side effects from being cut off from reality; your focused breathing will keep you calm and prevent any distractions from entering the mind. Closing
If you continue to train faithfully in this manner, you will be able to experience the fullness of mana in your body. It is my hope that you will train hard until you have mastered the skill to perfection.

Meditation produces an inner revolution in every individual
This leads to “right consciousness”, “right breathing”, “right sleep” and “right sexuality”.
The main purpose for meditation is to make your mind peaceful and to recharge your energy; but there are actually more benefits than this to be gained. If you achieve a high level of meditation it is believed that you can develop healing powers. During meditation you will feel the chi flowing inside your body. When all the meridian channels are clear the chi will be very strong. The outside of the body will feel soft with all the muscles and joints relaxed. This means that the inside of the body is strong (when the outside is yin, the inside must be yang).
Meditation is a method for acquainting your mind with virtue. It is the mind that will analyse or concentrate on a virtuous aspect. If you contemplate an object and it causes you to develop an un-peaceful mind, such as anger or attachment, this indicates that the object is non-virtuous. There are also many objects that are neither virtuous nor non-virtuous, these are neutral objects.
When you perform meditation your mind will become peaceful. You will be free from worries and mental discomfort, resulting with the experience of true happiness. But if your mind is not peaceful you will find it very difficult to be happy, even if you are living in the best conditions. Eventually, through continual training, you will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances. Most of the stress and tension you normally experience come from your mind. Problems you experience, including ill-health, are caused or aggravated by stress.
Initially you may find it difficult to control your mind. It seems as if your mind is like a balloon in the wind – blown here and there by external circumstances. If things go well your mind is happy, but if things go bad the mind immediately becomes unhappy. Such fluctuations of mood arise because you are too closely involved in the external situation. By performing meditation you create an inner space and clarity that enables you to control your mind regardless of the external circumstances. Gradually you develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency. Eventually you will be able to eradicate from your mind the delusions that are the cause of all your problems and suffering. However, you may feel that meditation is making your mind even busier; but in reality all that is happening is that you are just becoming aware of how busy your mind actually is.
There will be a great temptation to follow the different thoughts as they arise, but you should resist this and remain focused single-pointedly on the sensation of the breath. If you discover that your mind has wandered and is following your thoughts you should immediately return it to the breath. Concentrate on your Tan Tien area to ensure that the chi will be stored there. You should repeat this as many times as necessary until the mind settles on the breath. If you practice patiently in this way, gradually your distracting thoughts will subside and you will experience a sense of inner peace and relaxation. Your mind will feel lucid and spacious and you will feel refreshed. You should stay with this state of mental calm for a while.
You can practice your own style of meditation by using a sitting, standing or lying position. You may even use gestures or mantras. You must remain conscious of yourself – you cannot let go fully in order to forget everything. However, the magical word “meditation” simply translates as “nothing”.
The most common postures for the practice of meditation are:
Sitting upright in a chair, with both feet flat on the floor.
2. Sitting cross-legged on the floor and the hands relaxed upon your bent knees.
3. Kneeling as if in prayer. Sitting on your heels or between them, resting your hands on your thighs.
To sit in a meditation posture requires that your physical balance is kept in accord with nature. If pushed from any direction you will not topple over. It is like a foundation-stone being firm, fixed and unshakeable. When you sit in a meditation posture it should be as if a lovely cool wind blows in summer and in winter a cosy fire burn on the hearth.
Commencing your meditation
1. To commence meditation it is best to choose a place where you will not be disturbed. Also, if possible, try to choose the same time each day.
2. Choose a comfortable posture. If sitting or kneeling your back should be straight so that the Baihui point or sky-door (on top of the head) and the Huiyin point (between the legs near the anus) are in line and vertical. This ensures that the spine is held in alignment and allows you to gather the “heaven” and “earth” chi, which will then flow naturally. By sitting in an incorrect posture, such as, leaning forward or backward will suppress the lungs, causing a shortness of breath and result in you losing chi. A good posture will prevent your mind from becoming sluggish or sleepy, and you will not become tired.
3. Keep your shoulders down and the arms relaxed.
4. The head and neck should be kept straight and upright. The head should not be allowed to slump onto your chest as this blocks the flow of energy through the neck.
5. Your eyes should be partially closed and your sight focused on a spot on a distant wall.
6. Concentrate and think about your breathing pattern. Breathe naturally, preferably through the nostrils. Without attempting to control your breath, try to become aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. This sensation is your object of meditation. You should try to concentrate on it to the exclusion of everything else. You may feel warm, tingling or itchy – such sensations are very natural.
Finishing your meditation
When you want to finish your meditation, you should complete with Shou Gong, which means Ending Exercise or Collecting (Balancing) Exercise. Always do this as it brings your chi back to the Tan Tien, to store it so it is not lost. If you have been meditating in a sitting or lying position you should do the Shou Gong sitting. If you have been meditating standing up, you should do the Shou Gong in a standing position.
Meditation is the master of breath. It will give meaning to the development of mind and body. Proper breathing is taught as an essential and fundamental factor of concentration. You will probably find, as you relax, that your breathing will deepen and the body’s healing and balancing powers will begin to work. With each breath you should gather your whole strength on one point only in the Tan Tien. This is known as keeping your strength in the lower belly. The pattern of breathing should be slow, deep, cairn and natural – using your diaphragm. There must be deep inhalation and full exhalation. The action of making the expiration longer than the inspiration exerts a downward pressure on the intestines. Normal breathing rate is fifteen to eighteen cycles per minute. Through the exercise of meditation the breathing rate may become less than ten cycles per minute. Really good “meditative” breathing could be as low as three cycles per minute.
When you breathe naturally the breathing cycle should follow your body’s movements or feelings, and you should not be aware of your breathing actions. When you inhale using this method your abdomen expands, and when you exhale it contracts. This method is connected with the Tan Tien, which is located in the area below the navel. Thus the expanding and contracting of the abdomen stimulate the Tan Tien.
This is the opposite of natural breathing. When you inhale the abdomen contracts, when you exhale the abdomen expands. This method of breathing requires a higher level of expertise. It makes the Tan Tien very strong and stimulates the Ren (front) and Du (back) channels. Reverse breathing creates fire in your body.
Whichever kinds of breathing you use, do not go too far too quickly. Start by using natural breathing and then gradually introduce the use of reverse breathing for certain purposes. In fact, if you can relax enough and forget the way you breathe, unconsciously your breathing will incorporate both normal and reverse breathing.
Everyone will experience meditation in a different and unique way. You may see colours. These colours represent the energy (chi) emanating from various internal organs (each has its own colour).
All of the following methods will help you to achieve a quiet state of relaxation. In the beginning you will have problems trying to concentrate the mind, so, “use one thought to get rid of a thousand thoughts until everything is peaceful”.
1. Imagine the moon at the centre of your body, in your Tan Tien. Clouds drift slowly overhead and the moon disappears behind them, then it appears again. Combine this visualization with your breathing.
2. Imagine an object you like, such as a flower, a tree, the sun, the moon or a person, and put this visualization in your Tan Tien.
3. Look at one object and forget everything else.
4. Imagine a sound like a stream train slowly pulling away in the distance, water dropping or a clock ticking.
5. You can listen to some beautiful music during meditation to bring yourself to a relaxed state.
6. Breathe in and breathe out while counting the length of each breath.
7. Think of a poem or phrase (similar to Mantra repetition)
8.Let the distractions come and slowly achieve balance through concentrating on them.
9. Go to a peaceful place, let the atmosphere influence you, and then practice meditation.
10. Count from one to hundred during meditation.
Even though breathing meditation is only a preliminary stage of meditation, it can be quite powerful.
When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subside and your mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment arise naturally from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being help you to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life. Just by performing breathing meditation for ten to fifteen minutes each day you will be able to reduce stress. You will experience a calm, spacious feeling in the mind, and many of your usual problems will fall away. Difficult situations will become easier to deal with. You will naturally feel warm and well disposed toward other people, and your relationships with others will gradually improve
