Challenge One: Focus Meditation
Dates: January (Phase 1) & February (Phase 2)
This challenge is about different forms of meditation. In this challenge, we are honing our focus & concentration skills. Moving or Still, the goal is to revisit the techniques and skill of focus, body control, emotional control, and present.
Example Techniques: ZaZen Meditation, Qigong, Chakra work, Meditative work, self-hypnosis
Challenge Two: Applied Divination
Dates: March (Phase 1) & April (Phase 2)
In the last challenge, we honed our focus & concentration skills. For this segment, we continue to build on those skills and expand upon them. In Applied Divination, the goal is to work with any type of Divination system and then apply changes to one’s life from it. By practicing a Divination system, one can then reflect upon the world internally and externally. With that information, one can make better decisions & apply changes.
Example Techniques: Tarot, Yijing, Runes
Challenge Three: Cleansing, Self Alchemy
Dates: May (Phase 1) & June (Phase 2)
In the past challenge, we honed our skills of focus. As we continue the journey we’ll need to examine points within ourselves which need integration. The goal of this challenge is to ascend our limitations, alchemize our blocks and cleanse ourselves so we can have a fresh start. May is a full month of opportunity to map & reflect on the blocks & things needing transformation. June is the action month.
Example techniques: Qigong, Chakra work, Bath, Elemental work
Challenge Four: Enchantment
Dates: July (Phase 1) & August (Phase 2)
The Enchantment challenge could use any techniques such as candle magic, sigils, even servitors. Enchantment, in this case, means doing work for external results as opposed to internal results. Any projective magic for results.
So there an infinite ways to do this challenge. One could do a sigil every day for 30 days ( such as http://magicblog.andriehvitimus.com/2013/12/sigil-magic-ringdex-enchantment.html) or a person can do a hoodoo style ritual such as a lamp for 30 days. Other possibilities including doing self-reflection, chakra work, or energy building for 6 days and then one larger ritual on the 7th day.
Example Techniques: Sigils, Candle magics, Mantra work, thought-form project, etc.
Challenge Five: Spirit Work
Dates: September (Phase 1) & October (Phase 2)
Our journey continues. In the last challenges, we’ve gone from cleansing to projective outward results-orientated work. For this challenge, we now combining the skills of meditation, cleansing, divination and external projection of intentions to work with something external of ourselves. Summon a spirit or a set of spirits for 30 days to transform an aspect of your life.
