For all of you who have asked me both recently and a long time ago
So you want to practice magic.. Well I usually charge a million dollars an hour.. But I tell you what, for you.. just for you I will give you a free
(please note these views do not represent ATS or its members or me
I am a cruel teacher
You do not pick something up, later on spell go boom in your face, I take no responsibility
You do magic and do not like the results.. tough luck buddy you do not properly preplan it is on your head
First choice you have to make:
Of which I suffer no consequences
Do you want the American method or the Russian method?
understand the theory and intensive training
billion dollar pen writes in space
number two pencil- still works after half a bottle of vodka
So cherry pick at your expense (enjoy)
This is going to be simple..
Your first assignment is this
Keep a diary entry of your days event
we will use this to build on... and you will need it
No excuses.. EVERY day I want you to make an entry of your days events and the details of them..
You go back and do two in one day.. You fail
oh its worthless and you do not do it.. You fail
Please note I am being a hypocrite but your the one wanting to practice
The first two weeks will be the hardest as you try to discipline yourself to make those entries every day..
If you fail.. no respawn point.. start two weeks over
Now with our assignment out of the way Lets start the conversation out the same way I got it
WHAT IS MAGIC?
Well what is it
To keep silent
the universe is magic
what a mage practices?
I cheated and just nodded my head...
The truth is I did not know what the answer was..
What I have found
everything is interconnected
Practioner affects the experiment
energy manipulation is different then classical magic
Psychic is different then classical magic
Science is the scientific method everything else is button sorting
Past science experiments have magical side effects..
Yall ready for this ride...

This week you can respond with any types of magic you know of
The key to this is several things
You have to hand write all your diary /journal entries- typing does not count
Same for definitions-
you have to hand write them...
I will not defend the reasons for last two statements it is do nor do not
Here is the first key so to speak.. the definitions are how your mind structures reality.. feel free to disagree with my interpretations on defs.. the
7 p's are on your head
By writing the journal you..
You almost got it for free..
You have one other assignment separate but equal to the above one..
You have to find a hobby completely separate from practicing magic.. and the amount of energy you put into practicing magic has to equally go into
practicing hobby X
Hour for hour second for second..
Lets say your learning to play guitar and spend two hours with it..
Well your practicing guitar means two hours of magic practicing..
One day you will understand. You can change hobbies if you become bored with it.. (your weaknesses will expose themselves to you...) but it has to
have equal time
-any you think of that are not on the list yet post
GET A HOBBY
Welcome to the world of being a mage..
If your real good we will cover money magics.. it will be your favorite and least favorite parts... For now
Wax On / Wax Off
Jacket on/ Jacket off
Just so you know... small print you can skip reading..
This is called a year and a day most of the time for a reason.. You have things change for you.. it will change quickly.. You have to have the mental
toughness or well.. enjoy.. the SHTF warning has been given..
New christian go through the same thing as do all practitioners of religions...
We can discuss this as well if you want.. I have my own theories...
We are energy
change thought process change the energy
Environment responds differently
