Someone recently asked me through messenger, ‘how does one focus to reach the state of mind, to manifest a situation or initiate a placebo type result? Here is one tool used by the doctor and great alchemist, Paracelsus (1493-1543).
To Paracelsus, there is no miracle or magic, just laws of the natural world that have not yet been recognized. The three pillars of all seemingly miraculous results is the use of Imagination, Faith and Will. So called ‘magic’ is the product of a direction of the Will in working in sympathy with forces of the natural world. “Wherever the Will can be brought into activity, invisible changes, lawful and natural can be induced.”
"If Will is directed by Wisdom, Faith and Love then Will becomes the great alchemical agent of positive change. The Will becomes the genii of Aladdin’s lamp, it becomes the symbol of the wand of the wonder-worker."
“Will must be under discipline, for all wonders with nature are the work of Will.” One exercise of Will does not establish a pattern, but a continuous exercise of the Will, in a particular manner, establishes habitual patterns. One way magnetic fields of the human body can be directly controlled, is through the direction of the Will. The cultivation of the Will as an agent in medicine means the possibility of people learning first, to consciously direct the energies of their own magnetic structure.
You direct the nerve impulses of your physical body, and do it so swiftly without apparently realizing it, such as moving your hands by will. “By realizing this action of Will, you can in the invisible currents of the aetheric and magnetic fields, also create or cause these currents to intensify, to move in one direction or another and to increase or decrease in volume.” The Nemescope pictures I’ve shown previously showed various energy fields.
When Imagination is added to Will, the rates of vibration can be altered, or the Will can move from one level of vibration to another. Imagination, or creative Will, can therefore refine the magnetic current in and around the body, specializing it, detailing it, determining the quality of the energy to be used.
Thus by imagination backed by the Will, knowing what you want to achieve, and with the intensity of its importance, energy can become medicinal. It can be aimed directly at a local ailment or a condition, level or strata in the body. Not only can a person do this, but a physician or healer can direct his own energy to knit a bone, remove an obstruction, decrease a toxic situation, sterilize an infected wound or stop a toothache.
This is more than just sending a blind bolt of energy pressed onward with only good intention. There is a complete science of the control of the magnetic currents by the educated directing of the Will.
The average person cannot hold a thought for any length of time, which means comparatively little exchange of energies takes place because there is no continuity or sustained purposeful direction. One must develop the visualization intensity in the Will.
Visualize the structure, the condition, the problem and energize that visualization. You can control the flow of energy from yourself. “For a healer or physician, if visualization is completely natural and accompanied by no tension or stress, then this energy moves through the individual to the various ends it is direct to.”
Imagination for Paracelsus contained within the heart of itself the word magic. Magic in his mind meant the understanding of, and use of, the power of nature. The power of the imaginative faculty was something of such tremendous importance that he regarded it as the most dynamic factor in human consciousness.
Paracelsus felt that by imagination, a human being came nearer to attaining freedom, to advancing individual and collective growth, than by any other means. When an individual sits quietly in humble expectation, it is through the Imaginative portal that all things are discovered, nothing is hidden.
Without Imagination we are slaves to what is already achieved and believed. Imagination is a sympathetic tool, for whatever we can encompass as a creative experience within ourselves, we become like it, we become into sympathy with it. When Imagination is clouded by wild speculation and negative thinking the ancients labeled it fantasy.
Faith is not a belief, but the sure wisdom that something will manifest, a knowing that it Will be. Faith is the sure wisdom that what you desire will manifest despite any immediate appearance to the contrary.
These are keys that some of the ancient healers, philosophers and alchemists have used successfully throughout time. It is simple and takes only YOUR desire to manifest. Believing it is difficult, or that someone else has the hidden key or answer, or it won’t work for you, is what halts your manifestation. There is no other secret. Just do it!
May this post inspire and empower each who reads this to your ‘own’ discovery of these ancient truths. May your desire be in tune with the highest good, the highest beauty and with the intention of love for the greatest benefit!
With love, in love and through love to you.
