Walk-ins

August 16, 2009

What is a walk-in

A walk-in is an entity which has come to gain control over a physical body other than the one it was originally incarnated into. A walk-in differs from a possession. With a possession a second entity inhabits the body with the original incarnate person, and this second entity sometimes becomes the dominant personality and takes control of the body. With a walk-in the original incarnate person has left their body and is effectively dead and the walk-in is the only entity inhabiting the body. A walk-in can be another human being who has died or otherwise become detached from their original body. A walk-in may also be another entity, typically a lower realm entity that is unable to incarnate on this plane of existence.

Rules regarding Walk-Ins

1. In theory a walk-in could enter a body after a person has died (defined as the astral body being detached from the physical body). In most cases this is obviously counter-productive because the host body won’t be usable for long by the time the host astral body is disconnected. If the astral body were to be destroyed though the host body would be free and undamaged. However I’ve never seen nor heard of a walk-in trying to kill the astral body to get at the physical body, even when the walk-in has been powerful enough to do so, making me believe that for some reason that eludes me at the moment this method is not possible.

2. Walk-Ins generally enter into bodies of suicidal people, helping the person within the host body disconnect from it so that they can inhabit it.

3. Walk-ins do not find suicidal people to switch with. Instead they find suitable hosts and then attack them psychologically, systematically driving them into depression and sometimes insanity, eventually leading to suicide. The entire process can sometimes take years. Even if the walk-in is eventually removed before inhabiting the body the psychological damage they do can be severe and possibly permanent.

4. Once a walk-in comes to inhabit a body the person originally inhabiting the body is effectively dead. As far as I know, there is no way to bring this person back.

5. Physical bodies are made to house specific astral bodies. Housing a foreign astral body inside of a physical body (as is the case with walk-ins) requires excess energy besides what the body is designed to provide. In order to keep the body the walk-in will have to feed off of the lifeforce of the body, which will in time age and structurally damage the body. The more different the astral body is from the physical body it inhabits the more energy it needs to sustain itself. For example an ascended master would ideally want to inhabit the body of a person with magical aptitude of the same gender (in this case the body would probably last for close to its normal lifespan). If, as a counter-example, a very non-human lower realm creature were to take over that same body, it would eat through it very quickly. Sometimes the body won’t even last days.

6. A walk-in requires consent to take a body. This consent is generally given in exchange for the original incarnate person being detached from the body. A walk-in can never just take a body (even if a person is astrally projecting).

7. Some walk-ins are able to access the memories and knowledge located in the host body’s brain. At the same time, lacking a biological brain of their own prior to entering the body, the walk-in must house their knowledge in their astral and mental bodies and then attempt to transfer it to the host body (which, as one can imagine, can cause much fogginess). The resulting personality, knowledge, and even sense of identity of the walk-in after entering the host body varies.

8. Some walk-ins have a very limited understanding of general human behavior. They may not understand how to act in a socially acceptable way or understand many subtilties that we know from a young age. For example, I know of a walk-in that was aware that he was supposed to wear clothes, but was unaware of the fact that people generally change clothes in private, and saw nothing odd about stripping naked in the middle of the street and changing clothes.

9. An old immortality trick is for a magician to find a powerful item and infuse a bit of their essence into it. At death, they then literally possess the item and remain in it for years, decades, even centuries in some cases. Possessing the item they manage to direct its course, to a degree, seeking out a suitable host. Typically they find and present themselves to a beginning practitioner who finds the item and is happy to have found a strong magical object. The practitioner then begins using the object during which time the magician becomes a walk-in and attempts to systematically attack and destroy the host before entering once they become suicidal (Note, not all possessed objects are magicians seeking host bodies for immortality. The vast majority are simply possessed objects and can be invaluable aids in ones spiritual progression and magickal advancement).

10. Walk-ins are typically dark and evil creatures, and thus their energy is usually offensive.

11. Typical traits possessed by people who become targets for walk-ins:
a. Magickal aptitude
b. Emotional and/or psychological issues (especially depression); emotionally imbalanced
c. Loners with no or very limited support groups
d. Suffers from anxiety issues (including panic attacks) or is easily scared.

11. Signs that a person might be a walk-in (note, all of these signs could be caused by other factors):
a. Drastic change in personality overnight
b. Was recently suicidal/seriously depressed but isn’t anymore
c. Missing large chunks of memories they recently possessed/possessing new memories they didn’t have before.
d. Offensive and/or dark energy, especially when it contrasts their previous energy signature.
e. Major and drastic changes in their life direction without prior warning.
f. Strange and atypical behavior that wasn’t present before.
g. They admit to being a walk-in.

12. Entities that exist as walk-in spirits can be very good at what they do, even if they do seem less than intelligent in other areas. Most can find the chinks in the psychological armor of the best of us, and even a trained adept can become emotionally unhinged if they are not careful.

13. Do note that in all legal and mundane matters a walk-in is considered to be its host body, and that the actions of the walk-in may be immoral, but they are not illegal. However action taken against the walk-in, specifically against the host body, may be illegal. The information provided here is for educational purposes concerning walk-ins, and in no way is meant to condone or encourage any illegal action.

14.
That being said, I am of the opinion that walk-ins need to be dealt with prior to taking over the host body while they are still incorporeal (and thus have no rights under the law). After they have managed to take over the host body there’s really no point to stopping them.


Magick of Perception: Part 3: Lures and Thought Suggestions

August 3, 2009

What Are Lures?

Okay, we’ve talked about glamours and projections, now the next step up is a lure. Lures are an invasive form of magick which attempts to twist the thoughts and desires of its victims, named such because lures are mostly used to convince a person to become somehow romantically involved with a practitioner. As a comparison, a glamour is like wearing nice clothes to make yourself appear more attractive to a girl. A projection is like putting a love song on the radio to put her into a favorable mood. A lure is like slipping pills into her drink so you can rape her. There’s also one more step in perception magick between projections and lures, and that’s thought suggestions, so we’ll have to talk about that before we get into lures.

What are thought suggestions?

A thought suggestion is when we pop into someone’s head and place a thought in there. Generally the person will believe they’re thinking it, and act upon it accordingly. Some thought suggestions are very blunt and to the point, and simply hope the person will act accordingly. Others are intricately woven and designed in such a way that they are more like a seed that will, given some time, grow and completely change the way a person thinks about something. Still others are given an intensity and urgency that seems to force action.

There are some very complicated spells out there that try to basically create thought suggestions, for the most part though these things are generally done psionically. And a lot of things out there are partial to thought suggestions too. It is a favored form of manipulation. Both Pixies and Vampires, for instance, are known for utilizing thought suggestions.

The best thought suggestions are done via energy transfers. All people shed energy all the time. It comes out of us, forms around us in an aura, and eventually leaves us completely. People also absorb energy around them barring some sort of defense, like a shield, to prevent this. With practitioners, this absorption is usually like a sponge, it goes in and stays there for a while with energy accumulating over time. With non-practitioners the energy tends to just pass through them, but at the same time taints them. This whole energy transfer is how projections work. But we can also manipulate this energy on a much finer scale. We can take a very small amount, charge it only with a specific energy, and throw it at a person. That’s not a huge step up from what we talked about in the section on projections. We can do this with emotion. We can utilize emotion to create an emotional energy and throw that at a person to manipulate them emotionally. We can also bury words and thoughts, and even ideas (but that’s more complicated and generally less successful assuming the target speaks the same language), into energy.

If you can manipulate energy, it isn’t hard to bury words into it, it just takes some practice (BTW, this is also the method through which telepathic communication between practitioner’s works). For the best success though, especially early on, use the KISS model (keep it simple stupid). Simple and to the point phrases like “Leave a big tip”, “Isn’t She Hot”, and “Get out” will garner a lot more success than overly complicated thoughts that seek the same basic end result.

If you can’t manipulate energy that well yet, you may want to try thinking the thought as loud and intensely as you can and at the same time concentrating on the person. The success rate will be a lot lower, but it’s good exercise.

It is also possible, albeit a bit harder, to create a thought suggestion field, or in other words to put out a thought suggestion that acts like a projection effecting people in the general area instead of a specific target. To do this we would simply take the thought and bury it in energy (like a normal thought suggestion) but instead of a fine small ball we throw at someone we would project the energy around us (like a projection).

Thought Suggestion Fields and Time

A thought suggestion is instantaneous. We do it, it’s done, it’s over with, we don’t have to upkeep it, it isn’t meant to last. A thought suggestion field, on the other hand, is like a projection, we want it to last. With a projection, it will fortunately work to upkeep itself, this being largely do to the fact that emotion manipulates and changes energy accordingly, and as such the energy will manipulate us and those around us creating a cycle of energy to feed the projection as it is shed. Unfortunately thoughts and ideas do not modify energy, so thought suggestion fields do not feed themselves. In order to sustain the field the practitioner needs to constantly bury the thought suggestion into energy being let out into the field, or a way needs to be developed to sustain the field from the outside. Because of this thought suggestion fields are almost never used among experienced practitioners. In most instances, some better method that requires less energy is available.

Lures

Now a lure is going to combine all the elements of all of the things we’ve talked about thus far. We’re also going to have a higher degree of invasiveness than what we’ve already seen, and we’re going to have a better degree of sustainability, which is vital, and which will be achieved via an outside source. A strong lure, properly cast, is nearly invincible and can only be combatted by practitioners and those possessing either a very acute self-awareness or a very strong self-discipline. We’ll talk about combatting all of these things in the next section, and there we’ll discover just how vital things like self-awareness and emotional discipline are to an adept.

Making a Lure, an Example

The most common type of lures out there are the ones designed to make other people want to have sex with the practitioner, followed by lures that make people fall in love with the practitioner. These are not the only uses of lures, but the most common, and some of the easiest to cast. As an example, we’re going to look at a lure to get people to sleep with you.

Also unlike glamours and projections which are more often than not done psionically, lures are more often than not done via spellwork, especially among beginning practitioner. This is because lures are far more complicated and have far more parts. However we’re going to look at casting a lure psionically and then look at how to build that into a spell (perhaps one day actually, but I’ve spent too much time on this article and am loathing the idea of writing the spell right now).

Starting the Lure – Making a Projection…And Then Some

To start our lure we’re going to start with a projection. We want a projection that says fuck me. Projections of desire, horniness, and passion are all good ideas and will work okay in a lure. There is however a better projection, but it’s not one that is usually naturally occurring. Unless you’re having sex with someone, you won’t see this projection outside of a practitioner.

We’re going to start with a simple idea. We’re going to project the release of an orgasm. Men and women orgasm different. It’ll be easiest to project this as per your gender, at least to start. It doesn’t matter that you’re going to be targeting the opposite gender, it’ll still turn them on. Once you become more experienced and have actually experienced the orgasm of the opposite gender projecting that becomes easier.

Doing this is no different than projecting anything else. Simply imagine yourself having an orgasm and how it feels, and if you need to play with yourself and bring yourself to orgasm, then project that exact feeling outward into the energy. It’ll latch into it just like an emotion will, and if strong enough everyone around you will feel like they’re having orgasms.

Now projecting orgasms is great. It’s a wonderful tool and will serve you well in your sex life even outside this experiment. However we’re going to take this one step further. We’re going to back it up a bit. Imagine how you feel just a little bit before you have an orgasm. That wonderful joyful feeling of having sex, where you feel like you’re going to orgasm at any moment and any second now it’s going to start. That is the feeling we want to project out.

Now when people come around us they’ll feel like they’re about to orgasm, that they desperately want to, even need to, orgasm, but they won’t. Instead of orgasming they’ll just get that feeling again and again, but each time getting stronger and stronger. This type of projection will not just make people horny, but super horny and super desperate for sexual release.

Adding Thought Suggestions

The next step is to add thought suggestions to the projection, creating a thought suggestion field. As we talked about earlier, if we put a thought suggestion in, it’ll go away almost as quick. We need a way to sustain the suggestion. We’ll talk about that later. For now we just need to worry about the thought suggestions themselves.

Lures are very complicated with many parts. When you’re first starting out, it’s best to keep this part simple to make things easier, and we never want a lot of different thought suggestions in there. Too many suggestions just make the spell more complicated and open up more opportunities to failure. We want, at most, two to three suggestions. Following the KISS model, good, easy suggestions would be “isn’t he hot” and “I need to fuck him”. These will work pretty good.

We can do better though. Let’s start with “isn’t he hot”. That’s a question and just draws attention to you. Change it to “he’s so hot” and it’s better. Let’s change it to something more specific though and point out an attractive quality instead. “His blue eyes are so gorgeous”, “his chest is so toned”. Also, a very good one, which shouldn’t be underestimated, is “every one else thinks he’s so hot”. The psychology of people, both men and women, you’ll do better, more than half the time, convincing them that everyone else thinks you’re desirable rather than convincing them they think you’re desirable. Part of it is, too, that the person may be embarrassed to have sex with a fat person, or an old person, or a scrawny person and have people know about it. This helps with that problem. Finally, some really good ones, especially if you aren’t all that attractive, is “I can’t do better than this”, “this is the most attractive person I’m going to find to screw tonight”, or “Hey at least she’s easy”. A lot of lures and love spells utilize ideas like this because they are very powerful.

Now “I need to fuck him” is a bit blunt. Expect about a 50% or less success rate with that one. “I need to get laid tonight” is a little bit more general, but it doesn’t focus on you so it won’t help as much. Lowering their self-esteem with thoughts like “No one would want to have sex with someone as ugly/cheap/skanky/fat as me” is probably a better idea. It doesn’t focus on you, but when you offer sex, they’ll jump. You might want to try something more subtle though, like “he’d probably have sex with me”.

What we’re doing here is putting in seeds of ideas that will germinate and sprout forth with our thought suggestions. Thought suggestions like these are generally more effective than simple blunt suggestions. They’re far more manipulative and far more difficult to identify. They also allow the mind to branch off and create a whole series of thoughts naturally that lead the person in our desired direction. Ultimately we’re able to give the person a very complicated idea while still just implanting a single, simple thought.

Making the Glamour

Remember how we said the projection won’t work if the person thinks you’re an unattractive loser? Lures are quite a bit more powerful, but difficult to pull off if the person thinks you’re an unattractive loser. So we need to glam up. Make ourselves all attractive and hot. See section one. We don’t need to add anything special here.

Adding Invasiveness

Adding invasiveness to a lure isn’t difficult. Remember our energy is connected to us, like a limb, and will do what we want it to. For instance if we want our energy to target people, to try to bypass shields, to go after people who may have some protection it will. All we have to do is want it to do it.

Adding sustainability

There are many different ways to go about this. We can use runes, talismans, jewelry, and a million more ways on top of that. For this experiment though we’re going to use a very simple method and sustain the spell through a stone we’ll carry in our pocket.

First we need to pick out a stone. We’re going to want a stone that seems compatible with us. We also want one that is naturally attuned to desire and lust. Emerald is a good stone for this. However it can be very hard to get a specific stone, and most times we have to go with whatever selection is available, and unless you’ve memorized a lot of facts about stones and their correspondences it can be hard to get just the right one in the store. A good solution to any problem like this is to go with a compatible quartz crystal. It’s a clean stone that we can manipulate however we want, and it’ll be superior to just about anything else in the amount of energy we can push out of it.

Now there are other rituals to be done like cleansing and empowering the stone, but once that is taken care of we can begin the ritual for making the stone sustain our lure. Specifically, at least to start, we want to sustain the thought field that is projected out.

The way to do this is to project the thought buried in energy into the stone the same as we would a person. However when we do that we want the energy to go through the stone and then come out around it. Visualize the stone almost as a prism and the thought suggestion as light. It comes into the stone as a single beam, and immediately leaves as a cone. We can put the projection into the stone too at the same time, and in this way we can sustain both the thought field and the projection indefinitely with the stone.

Now a stone, especially one like crystal, will amplify the energy alot. It’ll also more than likely have a lot of latent energy in it. And then theres the energy you pumped into it putting the thought suggestion there. All in all it’ll last for a little bit before it runs out of juice. But what if you need something that’ll last all night?

What we need is a source of power for the stone. There are a few good ways to go about this. An obvious method is to just put the thought field into the stone and then have it feed off of the projection. It’ll work, but unfortunately it requires the practitioner to sustain the projection themselves instead of having the stone do the work. We could also have the stone feed off of the free energy in the surrounding area, like a projection would. This works great so long as there is enough energy around, but as soon as there isn’t the spell will break. Ideally we’d want to tie the stone to an infinite or near-infinite source of power that it could draw from. Many practitioners will use the earth for this. You could also draw off the power of one of the four elements. You could draw off of a deity, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that for a spell like this. And finally you can draw off of yourself and have the stone feed off of you.

And that’s pretty much it. From here it’s just a matter of carrying the stone, which will house both the thought field and the projection. You can also have the stone house the glamour too, which will put all aspects of the spell into the stone. Do remember to give the stone the intent to be invasive. The energy coming out of the stone is no longer yours, and it won’t naturally follow your wants and intents. The stone itself may go to sleep, especially if it hasn’t been used in a while, so prior to use it’s a good idea to push a lot of energy into it in order to wake it up. How long the stone will last and be able to cast the spell is dependent upon your psionic ability, but it’s a good idea, especially when starting out, not to expect it to last more than half a day or so.
