3 Magical Ways to "Chill Out" When Your Temper Gets the Best of You

You can find lots of great magical tips for dealing with everyday life issues in our twice monthly newsletter. If you aren't signed up to be receiving our newsletter right to your email, then there's no time like the present. Go to the Esoteric School website and get signed up now. Chilling out when your temper flares is an example of the everyday issues that magic can help you with. Here's some of the ways we've shared in our newsletters that magic can help you with anger.

Give It To Your Fridge
Your refrigerator can do more than keep your food chilled. It can be a magical tool to help you chill when you are angry. Since anger is a fire energy, a large appliance like a refrigerator, makes a great ground for magically flowing this excess fire energy out safely. Here's all you have to do.

1. Lay down on the floor in front of your refrigerator and put the bottom of your feet on it or you can just stand up in front of it and hug it.

2. Feel your anger and put all your attention on it.

3. Feel yourself pushing all that anger out of your body and into the refrigerator.

4. Fire energy flows quickly so a minute or two of flowing the fire energy should do it.

5. As soon as you feel the anger has subsided, stop flowing energy and step away from the refrigerator.

6. Take a few moments to check in with how you feel, then light a Sun Yellow candle, put your hands over the flame (not so close you get burned though), and pull in the healing fire energy from the flame for a minute or two to replace the anger energy you pushed out.

Firebowl Burn
This magical technique lets you literally burn your anger away. Just be sure to observe fire safety precautions while doing it, then follow these steps.

1. Gather a Sun Yellow candle, paper or wooden matches, a firebowl, paper and a pen.

2. Sit in the South and face North with all these materials in front of you.

3. Light the Sun Candle and charge it by putting your hands near the candle flame and saying the verse:
     "Child of Wonder,
    Child of Flame,
    Nourish My Spirit,
    And Protect My Aim!"
4. Charge the Firebowl by adding pine resin and sage to the lit charcoal disk and saying the verse:
"Fire and Air where you are cast,
Let no spell nor adverse purpose last,
Not in accord with me!
Clear from my life these unwanted matters,
Send far from my life these negative factors!
Thus my will, so it be!"
5. Next take the pen and paper and start writing down everything that you are angry about or any other negative thoughts or feelings you have. Write as fast and furious as you can to get all your anger out on the paper. Write until you literally run out of steam (fire and water energy).

6. Now take the papers and place them in the firebowl. If the firebowl is not big enough to safely hold the size of papers you will be burning, move the whole operation to a sink or other place that is safe.

7. Take a few moments to do whatever you need to in order to move the anger out of yourself – ask for angels or guides to help, do deep breathing or take some silent time.

8. Light the papers with your matches and let them burn in the firebowl while you watch your anger go up in smoke.

Let Apache Tears Take it Away
Apache Tears are black obsidian stones that magically open a doorway to the half worlds. You can send your anger into the half worlds using an Apache Tear like this.

1. Hold an Apache Tear stone in your dominant hand (hand you naturally point with).

2. Concentrate on your anger and feel yourself begin to push it out through your hand and into the stone.

3. The Apache Tear acts as a conduit to send the anger into the half worlds and doesn't store it like some other types of stones do. In the half worlds fire energy can be re-used.

There you have it. Three ways to magically deal with and release your anger. Signup for the newsletter so you don't miss out on great magical tips like these.

Then if you're ready to move on and really start in-depth study to bring magic into your life, make the commitment to just do it.

Here's something you can get started on right away that we have all our students begin as soon as they start class and all through their studies. It is a simple daily contact ritual to start opening the way for magic to flow to you and to begin establishing a relationship with higher powers and beings. This ritual is part of the Navajo Beauty Way ritual called the Exit Ritual and here's how it's done.

The Exit Ritual
1. Everytime you leave your house or car or other enclosed area, stop and put your focus up into the sky and say aloud, "Sky Above" or "Sky Father."  If you feel comfortable doing so, you can also raise your arms in an upward facing V toward the sky as you say this.

2. Keeping the awareness above you, extend your focus into the earth and say aloud, "And Earth Below" or "And Earth Mother." You can also use the hand motions while saying this by lowering your arms toward the ground in a downward facing V.

3. Keeping awareness of both above and below, say aloud, "I Greet You."

4. Wait a few moments and see what happens. Be alert for acknowledgement or response either:
•From within you, such as a realization, a change of attitude or belief, a new awareness.

•Changes in your environment, such as a sudden breeze, a change in the color of the sky, a bird or animal suddenly appearing, or a tree or shrub suddenly becoming vividly visible or possibly a four foot skunk to come walking by.

•A response from Sky and/or Earth: a special message for you, an answer to a question, or guidance and new directions.

5. Stay aware throughout the day for any additional results. It may change the quality of your day, your awareness, send totem animals with messages, or many other ways. The more you do this ritual, the more connected you become and the more you will see magic show up in your life.

Want to Learn More?
These online courses are offered as a full 30 week course or if you are already a magical practitioner and just want a refresher, you can get them one at a time in 3 levels – Basic Magic Level 1, Basic Magic Level 2 and Basic Magic Level 3. You'll start with the basics, establishing a thorough magical foundation by studying the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth and how to use them for communication, healing, balancing your own and others' energies and more. Then you move into learning about magical tools and which tools can be used with which elements for a variety of magical operations. The course also covers magical self defense, the Tarot, spellwork, simulacra magic and sonics. That's a lot of magical knowledge and wisdom passed down by our master teacher to you through audios of actual past teleconference classes, videos and class notes.

2 Simple Magical Rituals that Enhance Any Magical Procedure

The more magic you have in your life, the more powerful the magical rituals you do will be. By adding two C's to your daily magical practice, you can increase your connection to higher beings and powers, boost your supply of positive power, and increase your ability to hear your own inner guidance and follow it. What are these magical two C's? Consistency and Conscious Choice!

Consistency
Your connection with the higher can be enhanced by doing a ritual at the same time every day. In terms of any relationship, which is stronger; one you have contact with every day or someone you seldom have contact with? Usually family, spouse, close friends, and co-workers are the people you have consistent contact with and those are the people that are a big part of your life and that you know you can count on. Those you seldom have contact with fall more in the category of acquaintances or distant friends. They don't have much influence over your day to day life. It works the same way with higher powers and beings. The more consistent contact you have with them, the more you know you can count on them. One daily ritual that helps develop more consistency in your life and that can enhance your magic practice is the Consistency Exercise. Since magically speaking, it takes 40 days of consistency to manifest a desired outcome, the secret to success with this exercise is to work towards doing it for 40 days in a row. I say work towards that goal because even though this is a very, very simple exercise to perform, it is very hard to reach the 40 days in a row goal. As you do this exercise, just remember that it is the journey towards and the striving to that are most important. Berating yourself for missing a day, which in this exercise means you start over at day one, is not helpful and will not help you build force. If you miss a day, you simply start over at day one and work again towards the 40 day goal. Here's how you do this very simple ritual.

1. Choose a very simple act that you will do every day. And I do mean SIMPLE! It might be making a mark on a piece of paper, touching your nose with your index finger, saying a particular word out loud or any one of thousands of other simple, simple acts.

2. Choose an exact time that you will do this act every day. Make it a time that you will be likely to remember easily. If you are constantly on the go with a demanding job, then don't pick a time at work. You might want to pick a time when you know you will be sitting down for a cup of coffee or a break in the day. Consider your schedule and pick a time that will work best for you to be the most successful.

3. Now that you have chosen your simple act and a time you will do it each day, do it. Yes, it's really that simple. If you miss a day though, you have to start over at Day 1. Even if you make it to Day 38 and then forget the next day, you start over at Day 1.

Making it to the 40 day mark, you will find, is the trickier part of this exercise, but it is what really develops the consistency. When you miss a day (and I've never known anyone that didn't), just know it is all part of the process and you're getting even more practice at consistency. You will also gain insight into how mechanical our lives are for the most part and see how important it is to step out of this mechanicalness and into consciousness.

Conscious Choice
Doing this exercise at the same time as the Consistency Exercise helps you generate a lot of positive power that can be used for manifesting. The Consistency Exercise was geared towards developing focused aim. The Conscious Choice exercise gives you practice listening to your own inner guidance and wisdom and following it. For this exercise you will stop at anytime during the day, everyday, and make a conscious choice. Start with small, trivial choices such as what color socks to wear, whether to go for a walk or relax and read a book, or what to eat for breakfast. Then follow these steps.

1. Either out loud or silently, say to yourself, "I will now make a conscious choice."

2. Ask yourself the choice question now. "Do I choose to relax and read a book or go for a walk?" The question might also be "What do I choose to do right now?"

3. Take a moment to be silent and listen to your inner self. The first answer that comes to you is what you must do.

4. Do this exercise each day for 40 days. Just like with the Consistency Exercise, if you miss a day, you start over at Day 1.

We say start with trivial choices because you are just learning to listen and trust your inner guidance. In that process it really won't matter too much if you have oatmeal instead of eggs for breakfast. By practicing with these small, less important choices, you'll be able to develop your inner voice and learn to trust your own inner wisdom. That way when bigger life choices come along, you'll have the experience of accessing your own inner wisdom as well as the consistent relationship with the Universe to draw on for help in making the right decisions for you.

These two C's may not seem like much to you at first, but give them a try and you'll see the powerful changes doing them will magically bring to your life. For more daily rituals you can do to enhance your magic practice, check out our Daily Rituals For Attracting What You Want in Life ebook.

A Simple Magical Ritual to Unwind Problems

Magic can play a big role in your everyday life and you can get rid of a variety of life problems with a simple magical ritual using the pendulum. The pendulum is a great magical tool that can be used for dowsing, divination, diagnosing health concerns and with many other magic techniques. You can buy a pendulum online or at a new age store or you can make your own pendulum with a string or chain and a small rock or other small object like a paperclip. Get your pendulum ready and the next time you have a problem or snag in your life, use it to unwind that problem and magically clear it from your life. Here's how.

Clearing With the Pendulum
1. Hold the string or chain of the pendulum in your dominant hand (hand you naturally point with), let your pendulum hang loose.

2. Visualize the problem that you would like to clear.

3. Holding this visual of the problem in your mind, ask the pendulum if this is a situation that you should and can clear.

4. If the answer is yes, continue with the clearing. If the answer is no, stop the procedure.

5. Start the pendulum swinging in a counter-clockwise direction, asking the pendulum to clear the problem, and visualize the problem resolving. Be specific in what you ask the pendulum to do and specific in your visualization of the problem resolving.

6. Continue focusing on the problem's resolution and clearing it until the pendulum stops spinning in a counter-clockwise direction. If the pendulum stops spinning, begins to move in a horizontal or vertical direction or starts spinning clockwise the problem is cleared.

Of course, since you have free will you can always choose to let the problem back into your mind and your life. To keep the problem cleared, find something else to focus on when it pops into your mind and perform the clearing more than once if you need to. This is a great technique to use with negative and repetitive thoughts too. This is just one of the simple magical techniques you can learn how to do in our Psychic Development ebook. Let magic change your life and change the way you deal with life problems.
