"The Brain is an apparatus with which we think that we think.
That which distinguishes the man who is content to be something
from the man who wishes to do something. A man of great wealth,
or one who has been pitchforked into high station, has commonly
such a headful of brain that his neighbors cannot keep their hats
on. In our civilization, and under our republican form of
government, brain is so highly honored that it is rewarded by
exemption from the cares of office."
The psyche is made up of 3 different parts of consciousness which
reside within the brain. In most people these parts work
independently, unless they are forced to work together as a
result of some form of psychological trauma. They have highly
specialized functions, and once they are understood, can be
taught to work together to create a more complete and efficient
The three parts are:
1) THE CONSCIOUS MIND. It is symbolized as "The Magician" Tarot
Card. It is the rational mind; which in most of us operates
normally during our waking hours. It is the reasoning mind. It
is the state in which we ENTER our meditations. It draws
"edited" information from the subconscious in an effort to make
rational decisions based on past experiences. If there is any
discrepancy between the Subconscious and the Conscious mind the
Subconscious always wins.
2) THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND. It is symbolized by "The High
Priestess" Tarot Card. The function of the subconscious is
primarily a defense mechanism. It functions always, without
rest, but it is most active while we sleep. It stores all
information and experience; but does not allow all of its data to
be used by the CONSCIOUS mind. It works without any effort on
our part. It will take any suggestion, sort out all of the
possibilities and draw conclusions based on those suggestions;
even if the suggestion is false.
It is important to remember that the subconscious cannot be
ordered; an indirect route is needed. The subconscious is
better reached by way of symbols. Some words are not allowed
to enter into the subconscious realm. If words are used in a
suggestion one must never use words such as: NO, NOT, and
NEVER. If you give yourself a suggestion such as: "I will not
smoke", the subconscious will remove the word "no" before it
stores the suggestion, and it will have stored: "I will
All suggestions must be given without lust of result or the
subconscious will interpret the suggestion as an order and
rebel against you. The subconscious is the place we PASS
THROUGH in our meditations.
3) THE SUPER CONSCIOUS. It is symbolized by "The Fool" Tarot
Card. It is the Higher Unconscious, the source of ALL
consciousness. This is where the Higher Self is proposed to
reside, the Deity within, the Holy Guardian Angel. This is the
House of God, the place we SEEK in our meditations.
The brain should be looked at as a "receiver" which is capable of
tuning in to the proper "thought wave". It can be conditioned to
tune to higher forms of thought waves. The conditioning of the
brain is the GOAL of our meditations.
The Sixth Sense's home is in the right side of the brain, which
is nonresistant in right handed people. It is speculated that
the brain's right side digests incoming stimuli and compares it
against already stored information.
This stimuli is stored a lot like video tape; using images
and symbols rather than text. The comparative process
is instantaneous and is estimated to occur within the time frame
of one-tenth of a second.
The left side of the brain consults with the right, the result of
a match is a feeling that "you've been here before", or "I know
this guy" or "I know how this works".
This function of the brain has the power to speculate a complete
thought form, some of it blurred by inadequate data. If there is
no reference regarding an object or situation the brain
improvises (see Courage). Because it is a highly visual
process it is strongly linked with our emotional triggers,
hence the "gut feeling".
This function's main purpose is to create Order from Chaos; it
put experiences and information in its proper place, and then
executes a series of "experiments" in order to predict an outcome.
This is why those who have a strong awareness of this function
are more likely to develop an accurate method by which to
utilize this situation to its fullest. The Magician sharpens
this mechanism by virtue of Yoga, Meditation, Sensory
The sixth sense can command with authority, even though it can at
times be wrong. Do not let what seems to be failure in this
function lead you to drop it, or disregard it. It could save
From the beginning of our lives, we have been trained to
disregard this Sixth Sense. In fact, as children, many of us
have been punished for following our instincts. Over time, man
has all but evolved out of this primal function.
If you sense something about a person you don't like, listen to
your intuition. This will not automatically close your mind to
getting to know them; in fact, the subconscious will insist on
overwhelming evidence that there is nothing wrong with them.
As you study the Magical Arts your "right brain" will be fed a
tremendous amount of symbols, pictures, and principles. It will
sort them out, put them into the right sequence and store them
into video images to be recalled when the need arises. Symbols
are ingenious keys by which we can access stored crucial
We have learned to shrug off this primal instinct of survival, it
is a crucial part of all Geomancy. We must now learn to bring
back what society has forced us disregard as delusion and
Here is a simple formula in which we can communicate with the
psyche to attain a desired result. It should be used in
conjunction with the Magical Formulae:
Decide the purpose of the meditation and suggestion.
Find the Sephiroth to best encompass your desire.
Use everything in your disposal related to the Sephiroth
which can be used to inundate your senses with the essence of
your desire. Things like; incense, fruits, music, etc.
Delineate a symbol using the color and any other information
you acquired during the classification that is best suited to
convey your desire to the Subconscious mind. (Practical

In a relaxed state, situate your body in any position which is
rigid, but comfortable. Start your controlled breathing.
Bring up the symbol you have designed to consciousness and
hold it there. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR MIND TO WANDER, remember
that the Subconscious mind is watching. Hold this mental
image for as long as it is comfortable.
Assure yourself that every picture you bring to your
Subconscious will be carried out.
8) FORGET ABOUT IT!
Your Subconscious must be allowed to take the ball and run
with it. Any apprehension, skepticism, or anticipation will
be decoded as "Lust of Result" and interfere with the
