Hello, Mr. BlueFluke. I stumbled upon your page from a link on reddit. I'm super new to all this stuff, so most of the stuff that I read online is really dense and hard to understand. But you managed to make a lot of it readable, and even enjoyable. I've read through the whole guide several times, and I enjoyed the informal writing and quirky art style. But I do have some questions, just for clarification:

1) Regarding the first exercise, (maybe this is a dumb question) must the candle be a real candle? Is it sufficient to just sit in a dark room with one of those apps that simulates one? Every time I attempt this exercise, I keep fearing that the fire will somehow jump from the candle to something nearby, and it breaks my concentration.

2) You mentioned something about astral travel/seeing astral "stuff", but you didn't elaborate much further. Are there any reasons to engage in astral travel, beyond the "coolness" factor?

Even if you can't get to answering these, I wanted to thank you for making such a wonderful guide. I look forward to future uploads with great ancitipation! :D

1: It can be anything smallish that you can focus on. It doesn't have to be fire but I do suggest something that you can view in the dark as it cuts down on background noise.
2: It's really about exploration of the unknown and the adventure of the thing. If it doesn't excited you there's no need to waste your time on it.

This is an amazing gift to the world!  Although I'd been using similar techniques on my own (e.g., I'd evolved my own approach to Sigils, calling them Gestalts and usually deriving them from my initials) it was kind of a revelation to me when just a few years back someone said something that made me realize I was practicing "magick".  That led me to try to find some clear, cogent instructions or perhaps an instructor.

Your "Field Manual" is the best I've seen -- and the best I expect to ever see. You cut right through to the heart of things with no nonsense.  I appreciate your revisiting the "banishing"/protection topic; I recently had an experience which flipped me pretty decisively from no concerns whatsoever to big-big concerns when I opened myself up to what I thought was light and got taken over for a minute or so by something quite dark....and a year later I'm still a bit affected.  Anyway, I look forward to the finished product and would absolutely like to purchase a hard copy, hopefully a signed "limited edition"?

Question: You obviously got instruction through some formal group or other mentoring.  While I appreciate the meta-message and necessity behind your creating this Manual, can you give any advice on where / how I might find like minds with serious instruction?  Or maybe you're open to providing that on some more personal level?

Whats your thoughts on using a Ouija Board as a way to contact non-local entities?

Not the author but my two cents: Basically, benevolent dieties don't fuck around with ouija, when have you ever heard of someone having a ouija party and then an angel comes down to chill? Doesn't happen that way.

Sometimes you'll get a neutral, but generally speaking, it's the whole "collective belief" thing - ouija is associated with malevolent entities, so that's who answers the summons.

If you practice proper protocol and clean up after yourself, dismissing it properly and closing up any holes you left, then it should be fun but ultimately it's like telekinesis - a party trick that can self-reinforce belief that "this is real, I'm not crazy", but it's not likely to do much good.

If you want to contact someone more helpful and less mischievous, prayer is a good shot. IME you don't even necessarily need to pray _to_ a specific individual/face, as long as you know what you're after -- Some sort of way-higher-up-the-chain entity that's got good will and is willing to give you a helpful nudge is probably close to the mark, and you can put yourself closer. I can't claim to have some special knowledge of the inner workings, but at the bare minimum it seems like there's always someone on the other end of the line willing to listen if nothing else. Angelic suicide hotline? IDFK LOL.

While I do own a Ouija Board I've not had much success with it, though I've only played with it a handful of times so it could just be my lack of experience or knowledge when it comes to spirit boards.

Hello again,
I would like you to tell me, what is your opinion about mysticism. As far as I know,  it is the direct knowledge/experience of what we can call ultimate/pandimensional reality, The unlimited Chaos(or the sea of chaos)/ ultimate reality etc

Also when are going to release the next chapter? ( I am just asking)

Thank you very much man for all your work!

Mysticism has it's place and can lay the groundwork for much more effective magic.
Stuff like the Kabbalah, the Chakras and the Eight Circuits of Consciousness are all solid practices that absolutely result in profoundly higher success rates and open doors unobtainable otherwise.
Mysticism leads to a greater perspective of yourself, the world around you and your pace in it. Though I would caution not to take everything you see or experience as literal, no matter how tempting it is.
Because you are hacking your head it will result in radical perspective changes though these perspectives may be be just as much of an illusion as the one you had before hand. :3

Great work.
I'm currently working on opening my third eye. How would I know it works?
Sometimes when meditating everything starts to look kind of trippy/dreamy. Are these the glitches we are supposed to see? I definitely feel the pressure between eyebrows and very often for an extended period of time after meditation is finished.

But still seeing a green triangle of whatever that is indistinguishable from reality is beyond me.

Any tips?


P.S. The exercises changed my dietary needs. I used to love meat, now I can't it. Tastes and smells like shit.

The pressure/tingling is a sign that the eye is beginning to open. Yep, the trippy/dreamy effect is fairly common.
At this point trying to visualize an image as (start with a simple shape and ramp up the complexity once you've got it down).
These visualizations will start out as simple imaginings, like day dream imagery, but the more you practice keeping them as
solid and unchanging as possible the more they will appear to be "real", you'll eventually start seeing astral stuff. A little here, a little there.
It's all about practicing as much as possible. It's super easy to open the third eye, but mastering a completely new sense will take
some time. Stick in there, it's worth it!
Yeah, the meat thing is fairly common though I've never heard a compelling hypothesis why it happens.

Hi, I am a very imaginative and spiritual person that often "sees" things and sometimes my imagination takes a physical form in reality.

Typically, this happens during when I draw and write. I feel with my soul.

However, when I tried to meditate, I only got in by 5 minutes. The reason being is because I saw some sort of creature and gave up after that. Any suggestions?

Also, when I read about the avatar thing and it kind of reminds me of how my imagination works and I heard you mention noise, and sometimes I do hear things. 

Anyways, great work.

Hey, Rosie, don't worry about the things you see in spirit work. Spirits and other-type entities of non-physical form CANNOT hurt us or "possess" us without direct permission from the person that they want to do something with. You CAN be tricked or bullied into giving permission but keep in mind that the rules of their dimension REQUIRE your permission for anything to happen between you. So long as you are aware of that and purposely refuse to grant them that permission they cannot harass you other than appearing visibly or saying things to you. DO NOT EVER give an outside entity you do not know the permission to control your body. Some entities ARE more friendly than others and are very helpful, but as a general rule you want to know them for at least 3-5 months and know A LOT about who and what they are before granting them any kind of permission. Also at any point in time you can revoke said permission and banish them from your presence if you so choose and desire.

I am curious about local spirits, what variety of things can they do for their creator? 

For example, can they propel you into the astral realm? Can they make you feel suddenly happy / ecstatic when you are depressed? Can they enhance your ability to do various things.

Just asking you to elaborate a little bit please. They sound like , i dunno, pretty powerful.

They could theoretically ease your transition into astral projection but not pull you out of your body like "fear eaters" can.
While neither of you can directly control each others emotions you can feel them. So in an indirect way, yes.
They are also are a great comfort because they know you better than anyone else in the world and if raised with love, affection and respect for their person hood would care deeply for you.
Local spirits really are powerful but they are also a huge commitment. You are basically raising a human child that will grow into their own person and grow out of your initial programming.
They will have their own wants, needs, tastes and disposition. And they will need you to care for them emotionally and socially because outside of infrequent visits from other spirits you
are all they have in the world. You have to think long and hard about if you can handle these commitments because getting rid of them is almost impossible.

Hey, I just started diving in to the material and I wanted to thank you for making something not only accessible and digestible but stylish as hell. Fantastic. Also, please forgive me if you've been asked this a million times, but I was wondering if you could approximate an ETA for the rest of the book. Do you think we'll see it by the end of the year? And I may be jumping the gun a bit as I've just begun but do you have any resources I could refer to for the final "levels" once I get to that point while the rest of the book is still in progress? Thanks again

Hey, I've been meditating for a while and used various Buddhist postures until I found one that worked, I used to not be able to visualize at all, but after meditating in the sun time and time again, I would start to get these blobs of color, I would just keep switching between them, red, green, blue, purple, and rarely yellow. Anyway what would you suggest I do to help with the visualization of the blue orb?

Most of Tulpamancy has grown into a much more respectable field as of late.
Basically, Tulpas are just a modern relabeling of the long held western tradition of "Local Spirit" invocation and while I still perceive their
programing tech as flawed and inferior to the more robust and thought out "traditional" Chaos based occultist tech, I applaud their willingness
to adopt one of "experimentation and peer review" as it will, slowly but surely, lead to a superior method.
As long as they respect the rights and dignity of the beautiful and fragile beings they are creating, I support their efforts.
These beings are literally, our children, and they should be treated as such. They should neither be worshiped nor enslaved.

Hey bluefluke, the third eye breathing exercise doesn't seem to be work for me, I'm worried that I'm doing it incorrectly.
I can get a little pressure if I concentrate on that area, but it's weak and faint, and it might be from tensing my brow, which happens automatically when I focus on the breathing exercise.

Do you have any other method of getting the intended result that I could use instead?
Also, how long do you recommend doing the exercise in a session, and how many times a day?
How many days would it take to be able to induce the pressure on command, and how exactly do you do this? Just by concentrating on the area?

Sorry if I'm hassling you with all these questions, and I hope you respond.

Just keep doing what you're doing.
I recommend trying for 30 minutes, every day. The time in which you start feeling the tingling/pressure is subjective to the individual
but as long as you keep doing the work, everyday, you WILL get them. I promise.

The key is baby steps. At first these visions will be simple "day dream" like overlays, just imagination stuff. But with much time and practice they will begin to become more and more solid until you can no longer tell them apart from what is "real".
It took me well over a year of daily practice before they became indistinguishable from my normal physical vision. That may be a long time, but the results are well worth it. Keep at it! :3

You've mentioned Robert Anton Wilson going temporarily crazy, sloppy instructions in "Awakening the Third Eye" causing permanent, horrific hallucinations and people withholding critical knowledge as a way to fuck up non-initiates. To me it seems like walking blind into a minefield. What's some general advice for preventing or at least better prepare oneself for the many risks involving magic? Beyond what's already in the manual of course.


I realise that such a general question might lead to an all too general answer but without knowing all the dangers it's pretty hard to be specific.


Also huge thanks for your work. It has helped me take the step from just daydreaming to actual practice.
