The Importance of Meditation
You may be amazed to discover this simple fact that Traditional Crafters, or Traditional Witches, have been Going Within for many hundreds of years. Going Within includes Lucid Dreaming, Astral Travel, and Crossing the Hedge (or Shamanic Jounreying). These are among the most ancient practices.
The key to Going Within is meditation, contemplative meditation and trance meditation. Of course, it wasn't called meditation in old Britain, and Trad Crafters didn't sit on the floor with their legs crossed in the half lotus position. Instead they sat in chairs, pethaps used a candle, or sat on a riverbank, or some other location. Nevertheless, meditation was done, and done daily. But why, you ask?
Meditation is The Key
If you wish to learn magic, then meditation is the most important single skill you will learn. You need not be especially psychic to be a Traditional Crafter, but you must know how to meditate and learn visualization.
This is why we begin by teaching contemplative meditation and visualization, free of charge in the Mini-Course. But do not worry, anyone can learn to meditate, anyone. We will take you step by step through the learning process. If you have the desire, we will provide the means.
Meditation is very powerful because it focuses the mind and leads to effective visualization. Together these become a potent toolset for heighten awareness and self control. Visualization brings a dynamic into meditation that energizes, brings clarity, and raises power- which is the hallmark of the adapt Crafter.
Through starting to meditation you will begin to gain control of your own energy and begin your vibrant transformation in achieving a heightened awareness and control of yourself and your surroundings.
