Magical Experiments

The Tumblr Blog for Author Taylor Ellwood, with topics on Pop Culture Magic, Space/Time Magic, Inner Alchemy, Media and magic, and other assorted interests.

On November 1st and 2nd, I will be presenting The Alchemy of Life in Portland, OR. In this class you will learn about Taoist and Dzogchen breathing and meditation techniques, intermediate to advanced energy work techniques and how to work with the neurotransmitters in the body See more at:  http://eepurl.com/Z0CMf

I’ve just wrapped up writing the spacetime magic foundations correspondence course. I hope to make an announcement in the next month for launching it…but feels good to finally have it written. It’s taken over a year to put this one together.

In a previous post, I discussed how tactile awareness could be used for non-anthropomorphic pathworking. This time we’re going to explore how sound and vibrations can be used for a similar purpose. Similar to touch, our hearing can actually help us connect with spirits, entities, and life in general in a non-anthropomorphic manner, if we train ourselves to use it for that purpose. - See more at: http://bit.ly/1Bz0IEg

So I’m in Las Vegas right now at the airport, waiting for my next flight. But in the meantime I put together a bookstore-author agreement contract that I will be using for future events and I’m getting my business plan for the next 6 months written up and figured out. Time is only wasted if you choose to do nothing with it and a mistake only continues to be a mistake if you choose not to learn from it.

The other day a friend pointed me to this link, where I ended up learning about Tulpamancy. Tulpamancy is essentially the creation of an imaginary friend who shares your body with you. The practice reminds me a bit of otherkin, only in this case instead of the person claiming they are some type of non-human entity, they instead claim that they are creating a spirit being and hosting that spirit being.

There is an end in sight to the research for the next pop culture magic book. Just 3 more books to read and draw from and then the writing can begin in earnest.

8-23-14 My mom has arrived from PA and is visiting for the week. We picked her up last night from the airport and when we got back I caught up with hr for a while. We ended up talking about some past history and I got some validation about some feelings I was working through. So did she. It helped me a bit with the funk I’ve been in. Though I actually figured out something else about that feeling of depression. It’s not so much a feeling of depression as it’s a recognition of the transition from movement to stillness. Stillness feels disquieting, weird, and off to me right now, and I think part of how I’ve dealt with that has involved translating it into a feeling of depression. There’s other factors too, but it is part of what’s going on. That’s the challenge with doing this kind of elemental work…you change from one element to another and it shifts your energy and experience accordingly. - See more at: http://bit.ly/Zclu0W

Today I’m putting together the outline for the Weaving the Web intensive that i’ll be teaching this weekend at Eye of Horus Metaphysical. I’m excited and nervous all in one. I’m looking forward to this weekend in Minneapolis.

One of the reasons I hold a potluck dinner and meet-up each month for magical experiments is because I like to learn what other people are doing and I think setting up an opportunity for someone to share and teach about their spiritual paths and interest is essential to keeping myself open to the world.

Why you need to have a newsletter (and use it)

Newsletter

If you attend one of my workshops, one of the sheets of paper at the workshop is a newsletter sign up sheet. If a person puts their name and email address on that sheet it tells me they are okay with getting a newsletter from me. I add them to my newsletter and they get an email twice a month with articles, as well as the occasional promotional email. What surprises me, however, is how few other…
