CONSTRUCTS

One of the most common uses of psionics is the creation of constructs. Constructs are a form of psionics and energy play that are quite useful to learn because they can help you develop adequate shielding a lot quicker. Both feeding and shielding are important, but you can’t do either with complete effectiveness; without first learning psionics. Through the years my students have often approached me and asked the question: “What exactly is a construct?” A Construct is a magickal manipulation or entity (usually non-sentient) created either for psionics, training purposes, or to manage certain tasks. 


The Psi-Ball

The most famous construct you can create using psionics is the psi-ball.

Step 1- Pick a location from which you are going to gather energy. (This can either be the earth, the universe, another power source. or your own personal energy)

Step 2- Put your hands about 1cm apart from each other. Then focus the energy flowing from the location you selected, through your body and into your hands, and outwards into the space between. While doing this envision the energy forming a sphere or bubble.

Step 3 - With each breath put more energy into the sphere, and feel the sphere grow.

Step 4- once the sphere reached the desired size slightly press against it will normally have some push/pull effect with it…If you are done bring the energy back into you. Some other things you can try…

Step 5- once you created the sphere the size you want it, try putting a certain emotion or intoning it with a specific thought. Intone it with happiness or sadness. You might want to try intoning the construct with fire or ice energy, be creative.

Step 6- Together with another person try a game of catch. Passing or throwing the psi-balls back at each other. You can even try charging it each time with a different emotion or energy.

Step 7- Test the cohesion of your psi-ball, and your sensing techniques by playing a game of “construct hide and seek”. This fun exercise is done by hiding a psi-ball or construct somewhere in the room, then having another person try to find it.

 

Word Constructs

In some religions and mystical traditions the universe was created with a word. But in order for there be a word, there must be a language, and in order for there to be a language, there must first be a thought. Some would continue this reasoning and say that before there was a thought there was an “intent/impulse”, and prior to the intent there was a “vibration” or “harmonic resonance”. Hence why the saying “It all began with a thought” is one of the most simplistic and yet most profound philosophical sayings. The ancient Greek Parmenides, who’s philosophies greatly influenced Plato; is known for his writings of two poems: The Way of Truth, and The Way of Opinion. The first philosophical poem describes the unchanging timeless existence of reality, or the ultimate reality. The later poem explains the world as false, misleading and deceptive; as it is one’s own perception of reality that makes it false. This is because it’s the reality of the individual (which is merely the appearance of a microcosmic reality) cannot grasp the reality of the entire world (macrocosm). In essence, words are the energetic constructs of thoughts; these thoughts are individual perceptions of a microcosmic reality. In order to communicate with other individuals in the world, shared thoughts are created into words. However it is possible to give a widely known word a different thought, or intoning it in such a way that it may be used to feed or give energy. It is the thought behind the actual word that has the power. Every time I have taught this to my students, and have encountered people that are resistant to this lesson, I have always given a bastardized version of an old Buddhist narrative. The skeptics, who think that words have no power, are simple minded idiots. At which time the students commonly get confrontational, and I reply: If words don’t have any power, than why are you getting angry? After all they’re only words. It’s usually at that point they become aware of what just occurred, and it dawns on them that they were in fact affected negatively by the words that were spoken. The psychological definition of emotional vampires suggests that these types of people use word and vocal constructs that are always negative, destructive or aggressive; in order to obtain energy or what they may be emotionally lacking. While these are all ways to render a person powerless, impotent, and take energy, they are not the hallmarks of skill. . An example of the negative implications of speech can be found in the common phrase “well at least it can’t get any worse!” which is used to express one’s own helplessness or impotence in a situation, and in its own right has proven to be a self-defeating curse, as things can always get worse. Phrases like this can reinforce these subconscious belief systems and ideas, literally taking away the power from a person as they speak. I’d like to offer the suggestion to those that may say phrases like this to try and change their vocal constructs to something more empowering. By simply changing your word structure you are literally re-empowering yourself.

 

Tonal Constructs

While words play an important role in some forms of magick, so do tonal or musical constructs. These sounds can have specific thoughts behind them to create both an emotional and magickal impact. Two instances of this are Enochian calls and druidic song-spells. Tonal constructs can be used to form a harmonic connection between groups of people. Bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish use their energy and tonal constructs within the elaborate music to both give and take energy. This give and take may not be the initial intent of the musicians writing the music, especially concerning recorded music. However it’s essential to comprehend the difference between recorded music and live music. Live music is different, in that it has both a prana and an energy vibration, which allows for a give and take which is amplified through the crowd’s emotions. The band’s aesthetic, stage props, lighting, pyrotechnics and personas all collide to play a part in giving life to and heightening the stories of the songs being played; and amplifying the emotional responses of the listeners; which inadvertently causes a strong emotional reaction and harmonic resonance with the musician. Bands often begin by heightening and refining a concert and the crowd’s energy to a point where both are in an ecstatic state when both the crowd and band are receptive. These heightened states are similar to those achieved by whirling dervishes and Tantric practitioners. News anchors, call centers, and other aspects of the communication industry all deliberately use these tonal constructs as well as rhythm in order to reinforce information. The next time you turn on the evening news, try to tune out the words and only listen to the up and down vocalizing sounds of what the news anchor or reporter is saying. Internet Feeding “Ha! You can’t feed on me, I’m using Microsoft Psychic Shield 8.2 with Remote Viewing Guard!”-Anonymous psivamp.org Member Words are powerful manifestations of thought, if spoken words can have an impact on the physical world, so can the written words. Whether reading a document, post, or talking with someone on an instant messenger; it is possible for you to be affected by a person who has left a word construct. It’s sometimes one of the most annoying topics that persistently occur in the vampire community, but the answer is generally the same, if you don’t want to be affected; shield or filter. Mind Munching If thoughts and written words can charge or drain, so can the spoken word. Though it may not present itself how you might think. A conversation involving three or more people is commonplace for a term I call “mind munching”. This technique though highly unethical, involves a typical conversation in which two psychic vampires are conversing with a mundane. They may either intone their words with thoughts designed to feed, or they may be telepathically reading the person as they talk, literally pulling thoughts out of the persons head with each spoken word. If you feel like you are experiencing this in a conversation, it’s best to remove yourself from the immediate area as soon as possible and avoid physical contact with the individuals. Advanced Constructs After you become proficient in creating psi-balls you can create more advanced constructs or wards to accomplish certain tasks, be designated as magickal wards, or even to gather energy to bring back to you. They are non-sentient thought-forms. When beginning an advance construct I like taking the psi energy and using the thumb and forefinger of each of my hands. I then begin slowly with bits of energy create a small psi-ball. This micro psi-ball will form the nucleus of your construct. Continue to charge it with energy, but let it grow in layers. The reason for using layers is because with each layer a different thought or instruction will be given, think of the construct like a computer program and give it basic commands. An example of some simple instructions would be: 1. Go out and get ambient energy from the room. 2. Do not feed on the vital energy of others. 3. Keep some energy to maintain form and function. 4. Return to me with the rest of the energy. 5. Go out and repeat steps 1 through 4. Another way you might also want to phrase the advanced construct instructions is by programming it in the first person perspective; like this: 1. I will go out and get ambient energy from different rooms. 2. I will not feed on the vital energy of others. 3. I will keep some energy to maintain my form and function. 4. I will return to my creator the rest of the energy I do not require. 5. I will repeat this process. In this case there are five levels or layers to this construct followed by a six layer of energy which I'll explain now. The last layer of the construct should give it its form. You are sealing the nucleus of the construct with an outer shell. This type of construct I like to envision as having something with tendrils. But it can be given any appearance. Another consideration you might want to program into your construct is the lifespan of the construct. Constructs like servitors, if properly programmed, can gain a form of autonomy if left unchecked for long periods of time. Finger Knitting Another variant of this type of construct utilizes a technique I call finger knitting. This technique involves intermingling instructions, and knitting them tightly together in a tapestry. Often times one of the draw backs of a construct composed of layers is that it can be stripped of those layers and instructions and torn to bits, by sequential attacks.

CREATING SERVITORS

Designing a Servitor The creation of your own servitor is more complex and involved than that of a construct; however the principles are the same. Here are a few more details you’ll want to consider before creating your servitor: the lifespan of the servitor- Do you want it to live for a day? A year? 1000 years? 
Name of the servitor-What are you going to call it? Is it something you will always remember? Does the name itself inspire whatever meaning, purpose, or imagery, you are trying to instill it with? 
Sigil of the servitor- Is it your own design? Created from an Enochian tablet? A Particular Doctrine? Purely a text? Purely an image? 
Bound to a physical object- Do you want to bind it to a physical object? Does the object have meaning to you? Is it something that will be passed down through the generations? Is the physical object made of crystal? Wood? Metal? 
Times of operation- When will the servitor perform its desired function? Will if only work in the morning or night? When it is needed? When you are being attacked? 
Shape definition or outward appearance.-Will it take the form of a person? Elemental being? Mythical creature?


CREATING EGREGORES

Egregores A servitor is a rather simple creation compared to that of an Egregore. An Egregore is similar to a servitor however it is created by a collective or group mind, of which a form of symbiosis occurs. It is considered to be fully sentient. Psychic Vampire.org has created its own Egregore, but is not widely known within the vampire community.
