Has anyone had a piercing etc for another purpose than the mod itself?

I mean, not for the aethetics/experience/symobolism of the act itself, but as a means to raise energy or cast a spell.

It's not something i had done until recently, tending to focus on the experience itself, and my own reasons for the journey.

When i had my vertical labrets done i had recently heard some news which left me unhappy. I set out to have the piercings done as part of a ritual to exorcise the negative feelings regards this,  regain balance, and cause a certain change outside myself.

I was very surprised by how effective it was. Virtually immediate. I'm not sure why i was so surprised as getting mods tends to raise a high level of energy, which usually just disipates, or needs grounding. Harnessing it should really seem obvious i guess….

 

So anyone do this and care to share their experiences?

Any thoughts on doing this?

I have never done anything like this, actually it's the first time I have heard of this. I think this is a great concept and I  would love to hear people's experiences with this discovered power.

If you don't mind me asking could you elaborate on your experience  to help give me and other people a better understanding on how we may be able to utilize this gift. How did you get ready physically/mentally/emotionally ect?

I am very interested within this subject.

How would one be able to prepare for this kind of experience mentally and physically? Also would this be considered a type of ritual voodoo for good fortune? Would you be able to redirect this energy to efect what happens to others rather than yourself? 

 I would love to at least try this new exercise and see how your able to control the personal universe that which you have created.

Really alll i did was a simple spell of the neo-pagan/witchcraft type, a harnessing of will if you like (although i'd rather not discuss some details for personal reasons i'm afraid).

I don't often do spellwork nowerdays, as my beliefs have changed since i was younger (i don't really see the need usually).

All this involved was a ritual bath with associated oils. During this, and through the day preceeding the piercing i focussed on the issue, and the change i wanted to effect via the piercing. The piercing provided both a raising of energy and a release.

I accept that some may view this change as primarily psychological with some coincidence, which is fine. Either way it worked nicely.

 

I've tried similar today, with a more traditional spell working, so we'll see how this one goes!

I originally got my septum pierced because I wanted to stretch somehting again (I got my ears to the size I wanted).  After I decided to do it, I was meditating and in my mind I saw a rabbit which I determined to be some sort of spirit guide.  He told me that his strong hind legs would be good to stomp down the demons I have (negative personality habits), and that is symbolized by stretching my septum (as if he is kicking out the skin to make the hole bigger).  It was done kinda crooked at 10 but then it got straigher by the time I was at 6 though stretching it made it tight, so I opted to have it punched at 2 and stretched to a 0.  I have a tunnel in and don't plan on wearing anything external except maybe a spike or other type of piece just during ritual.  I did this and I've been on cloud nine ever since (also did my first flesh pull, got a 6ga pa and am piercing ft, so that all helps!), I feel like through getting more mods I am more connected with who I truly am and that my soul is evolving.  At the end of the month with a group of friends, I'm doing a cradle suspension then gonna cut the bottom and end up in a suicide, and have 6 temporary lip piercings to symbolize rabbit whiskers to attempt to evoke the animal spirit more and see what happens.  I hope my experience helps you with yours :)

Oh, like oakbear, I take a ritual shower before workings then meditate in front of my altar in my ritual robe before going to get modified.  Glad to see others doing similar things!

Thanks for sharing apathos, that was intersting to hear.

 

My more recent 'spell' was a touch more disorganised i think. Seems to be working in a sense, but definately not as i hoped, with some negative effects.

Shows how rusty i am in spell work, must remember  – clear and focused!

Wow man that seems like a very profound experience you have encountered. I myself have not really got into ritual 'spell' castings but it is something i am interested in gaining knowledge about. Its great to hear your two story's and it definitely gives me a different prospective on using a modification to change happenings in this reality. What are some of the meditation techniques that either of you guy's use during these rituals?

When I meditate, if I'm meditating to try to see something specific or meet somehting in a pathworking, I make a sentence out of the intent of the meditation and rearrange the letters into a nonsensical mantra that's easy to say.  I then repeat that mantra over and over while i meditate until it gets to the point where it doesn't make sense anymore (like if you say a word alot, it sounds more like nonsense afterwards).  I like to use prayer beads that i flick for each mantra.  I start out saying it super loud and slowly, and every once and a while I get faster and lower in volume, like i go from chanting it outload to yelling it in my head.  I do this until it gets so crazy fast i'm just ripping at my beads then take all my energy and throw it out I jump or somehting at this point and lie down.  then the room is spinning and everything is quiet so I just focus on my breath and breathe slowly.  In my mind I visualize I'm on a lift and with each exhale the lift descends.  When it gets to a point that my exhales don't make my head feel any heavier (going into different trance states) I visualize a door at the bottom of the lift, and open it, and whatever i chanted the mantra for is usually there, or somehting else.  Sorry this is complicated :)   It also helps to block out my senses (earplugs, face mask) so the only thing I feel are the beads.  I don't do any drugs while doingt his bc they only distract me.

 

If I'm just trying to be calm, I just do the lift thing.
