I know very little of majickal practices, as I haven't practiced Wicca for the better part of a decade. I do, however, work with energies of varying
strengths a lot during meditation. Sometimes, I will tap into the Force to replenish my own energy if I'm doing something physically demanding,
other times I will meditate and focus on drawing in energy from around me to make astral projection easier. I do the best that I can to draw in only
the 'unused energies', if you will, from around me rather than tapping someone and 'borrowing' a little of theirs.
On one occasion, about nine months ago, I spent probably ten minutes drawing on various energies from around me prior to astral projection. Shortly
after I left my body behind, I felt a sudden crave for more energy and started drawing in more and more. After a very short period of time, seconds,
my mind shot back into my body and my body jolted about a foot and a half in the air *not easy to do, i was laying flat on my back on my apartment
floor at the time*.
Since that experience, I've noticed my perceptions have sharpened. I have a much easier time sensing people or other creatures around me than I did
before, and have also had a much easier time tapping energy than I did before. Although I recall no visions during my energy-crave/burst, it did
signal an asencion of sorts, to a higher level of perception of my surroundings, and a tremendous amount of ease in reading people. Perhaps something
similar will happen for you.
