So the other day I was thinking of how much I admire wizards in old stories. Now I know it's possible to shoot lighting bolts or fly in the sky like in the movies. However Shaolin monks CAN move objects without touching them across a table and even float in mid air.

But the point is I found a man on Youtube who is a REAL wizard. He does do magick, or did his younger days. He explains all forms of magick. Or at least the 3 basic kinds and what the effects are on the person who does them etc.

Well in the end he said to be a wizard just means one who has wisdom. This can be about magick, spiritual. Or simply knowing what herbs and plants or veggies heals certain things in the body.

I will post one of his videos here. I find his words interesting as well as educational. I learned more from his videos and writings, then I do in school or church in just a month. It shows wisdom in life is hidden.
No he does not wear a pointy hat or shoot lightning blasts. But he does teach wisdom and tells you what books to read. I think wizards are powerful Philosopers. Especially the ones who apply their wisdom to daily habits and works!

Here is the video of the guy I find his talks interesting.

This topic has come up before. This was my view then:

View PostThe world needs you, on 05 January 2013 - 02:09 PM, said:

There are a few core truths expressed in the article but there are some things that go way out there as well.

My 9 rules to be a sorceror would be this:

1. Walk with nothing in your hands, if you must use a backpack use both straps, I even read about a study that showed walking with free hands allows both hemispheres of your mind to work in better sync.

2. Learn to breath, 6 seconds in, 6 seconds out. This reduces much stress and eliminates many toxins.

3. Learn mindfulness which includes learning how to find and anchor yourself back to reality, back to the present, back to what is before you and to what is you. Know yourself.

4. Go outside, often as possible. It doesn't matter if Downtown, the park, your porch, or nature. just go outside.

5. Dress as well as you can.

6. Exercise imagination and creativity.

7. Inform yourself with science including psychology.

8. Learn mindfulness which includes learning to let thoughts slide across your mind, you are just an observer, they don't define reality, thoughts can be changed.

9. Exercise.

For me being a sorceror is merging yourself back into reality. You don't need robes, you don't need to buy anything, you only need your mind and a willingness to improve yourself as if you were a machine, to become more efficient.

Some are far too concerned in telling us what things are not instead of simply telling us what things are and allowing others to share their views on the topic.

The criticism and obsession with delineating fiction from reality is an unnecessary lesson. Many can enjoy both fantasy and realistic expressions while also differentiating between the two without negativity.

We can also allow others to enjoy fantasy if that is the sum of their experience. No need to be harsh, to claim we have to agree on certain terms, or have to share the same experiences, all that goes against: know thyself, but veers into know what "we all agree upon" since only that can be reality, which is not true, that is just one paradigm and not the only one either.

Thanks, he knows what he is talking about.  What  wizardry is really is a form of shamanic practice. I am on this path. I don't call it Wizardry though, I call it Druidry. Hail and welcome to the Path,  Lostsouls.

I like this part, "A wizard is a person who has a wise head and a wise heart".

I have to agree that searching for knowledge is the way to enlightenment. Some of the other stuff though, I'm not so sure about....kinda reminds me of the 'hippie stuff' from the 1960s!

Bless my stoner hippie heart. New age can be part of it, but you have to kind of sort it out, but that is part of the process. Some of it can be things we just don't understand, like my roommate reads cards.  He tells you rather specific things and they happen. I don't understand it. He lays out the cards and says the cards tell a story and he just reads the story. He has done mine twice and nailed it both times. He said I was going to get some money I wasn't expecting. Within a week I inherited some money I didn't know about. The other was more personal and I'm not going into it.   Then I watched him do a friend within a week everything he said was going to happen happened.   I have seen people like that before, I had a aunt who could do it.
There are a lot of things I tap into I don't know why it works but it works. All I can say is the Universe is an unfolding mystery and some day, if we humans last long enough I think we will figure it out.

I think John really gets it.

Some people are born with or learn to develop a type of gift or talent, it's really not magical once they understand the processes even if just partially.  Life holds many miracles and I have a very deep respect for monks and shaman  who are so dedicated to follow a certain path, just as I am with the modern wizard by the name of Tesla among others.

There are many paths to knowledge. The spokes of a wheel are different but they all lead to the center where there is balance and unity if you go toward  the center. It's all about discovering the underlying truths without the myth and proving it to yourself by  intuition and experiments.  

One important thing that gets overlooked is part of the "hippy factor"  which is actually expanding one's consciousness to understand the wholeness and interconnectivity of the material world to other realms or dimensions of conscious.  

My idea of a real wizard is a person who balances what he knows in mimicing  the natural  forces and expands his conscious mind to become one with the nature behind created forces.  So he is a natural scientist as well as a philosopher of the truths behind his discoveries.  You have to be both open minded but sceptical of the real reasons for the causes behind all effects to find the ultimate truth.

Hope that helps your hippy heart :)

Those are some very good and wonderful rules.

It think for me I try to stay in a state of positive vibes and or use my emotions to manifest what I want. Later in his video series he talks about forms of magick. Such as Sorcery, Magick Proper, and Holy Magick.
There are more forms, but I think these are the ones he knows about most

You're very welcome. He does seem to be very smart. I read some of his other works he writes and he is very wise.
I take things I learned from him and others then use my own techniques and methods and they work for me!

I am not a Druid or one path. I guess I am just an indepdent young Wizard!
I don't worship any Gods or Goddess. However I am learning to understand nature...
how certain herbs and veggies heal us and make us strong. How positive thinking and action
changes out lives. And of course manipulating the force and this reality is one of my main things I
am working on.

Above all I like to gain wisdom use it for good, and teach others what I know so
the good knowledge can spread. For knowledge is power!
and The Power is ours for the taking! blessings !

I think the dark ones who secretly try to rule and influence the planet know this.
But they don't want us to know we have unlimited potential.
They of course use the dark side... which I think it never good to use to
be in.

I think back in the days of Atlantis humans got it.. which is why they were so wise and powerful back in those times.

The dark ones? I have gone on Shaman journeys and encountered what you would call dark ones.  They are not dark, most just don't like what we do to the planet that they share on another level. I have dealt with beings who don't have our best interest at heart. It is something you have to learn and understand. Sometimes what you are encountering is yourself. Read Jung.  Magic itself is not dark or light it is all in how you use. If you put out negative energy that is what you get back.
Atlantis is a new age mythology. If they were all that powerful they would still be here.  We are living in a golden age right now.
If you took a computer back to the time of "Atlantis" they would be astounded. Might even burn you as a witch.

Greetings! What I mean by dark ones
are people or groups who contact evil demons , entities etc
and conspire against their fellow man.

Are those the same ones beings you have seen?
As far as I know the evil beings just hate humans
and probably even the ones who serve them.

What is Jung??? I want to read it.

You are right..you cast out evil it comes back.
That's why I try to only thing..., sing,, write postive... as much as I can.
And manifest good things in my life.
Try to spread knowledge help others etc.

I just learn more as I go. I'm still learning everyday, but
one thing the guy in the video said..
if you seek to have power in this life.. when no one else has powers.
that you become very unhappy?
what do you think of that statement?

That's interesting... you say it could be we see ourselves.
That's one thing I read about. We all have a shadow self.. some hide it,
some embrace. And me I just use it for my art and poetry.
Of course when people let anger and hate take over the shadow does evil things..
that's where we get all the killers, black magickans, child molesters from.
They are very negative.. people with anger, hate...
their shadow self consumed them i believe.

*Snip*

I feel much more powerful when I drink beer.
I do come up with great ideas and concepts.. that much is certain! lol

But the affects on my health.. are not so wise..
so as a Wizard.. i struggle to find balance in the force of being buzzed. :)
