The Pentagram & Magic Circle as Energy Healing Tools | A Mayastar

Energy Healing Article

This article is an excerpt from the popular Elemental Pentagram & Magic Circle Empowerments Course from Mayastar. You can read about this course & purchase from here.

The History of The Pentagram

The Pentagram is a universal symbol. It is a five pointed star that can be drawn in one continuous movement. The five points are all equal and represent the five essential elements of the Universe: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit. The Pentagram symbol was used in ancient Greece and Babylonia and has a number of magical associations. Worn by modern pagans and Wiccans as well as those who practice other magical systems including Traditional Witchcraft & High Magick, the Pentagram symbol resonates with many people. Christians once commonly used the pentagram to represent the five wounds of Jesus and it also has associations within Freemasonry. The pentagram has long been associated with the planet Venus, and the worship of the goddess Venus. It is also associated with the Roman Lucifer, who is reflected in the planet Venus as the Morning Star: the bringer of light and knowledge.

The Pentagram within the Circle: Power & Protection

The Pentagram is often depicted within a circle and in this form is a symbol of safety, security, power and protection; the five elements are combined and preserved within the Circle of Power. When depicted within a circle, some people refer to the symbol as a 'pentacle' though this is not technically accurate. The pentacle is a magical tool; usually a round plate made of wood, copper, stone or clay with a Pentagram inscribed on it. This magical tool acts to concentrate elemental energies together for the purpose of consecrating or cleansing other objects.

The Magic Circle for Ritual, Healing, Magick & Spiritual Practice

The Magic Circle is an energetic barrier that forms a boundary between the world of men and the higher spiritual realms of light beings. There are many rituals for casting a Magic Circle in ceremonial magic, other magical traditions, paganism and Witchcraft/Wicca. The emphasis on the purpose of the circle varies but generally speaking, the casting of a circle sets aside an area outside of time and space in order that the area be held sacred for the duration of the work at hand. The Magic Circle acts as a protective barrier, keeping out any negative influences and also acts as a container, preserving the energy within it. All elements combine as one within the Magic Circle and form a centre of wholeness and stability. When we are within the circle, this wholeness brings new balance to us and may have a powerfully healing effect.

The Magic Circle as Sacred Space

When cast, the Magic Circle is set apart from the mundane and the physical world and becomes a sacred space. The Magic Circle is an area of perfection and its integrity is emphasised by its spherical shape; a symbol of strength and power. The elements combine within the circle to create a power stronger than the sum of their parts and this power is perfectly balanced. Within a Magic Circle we may perform healing, meditation and consecration of objects for magical purposes or for healing work. We may also perform rituals to observe the changing seasons or spell work.

The Tanden (Dantian) Energy Centre

The Tanden is an energy centre, also called the 'Dantian', which literally means "red field" and is loosely translated as "elixir field". This centre is the source of our creative power as human beings. It is our centre of gravity and is specifically located in the abdomen, 3 finger widths below and two finger widths behind the navel. The Tanden is sometimes divided into sections. The lower Tanden, which is at the navel as described above, is associated with physical energy and sometimes sexuality. The middle Tanden is located at the Solar plexus, in line with the base of the ribs and deals with respiration and the health of the internal organs. The upper Tanden is located at the third eye and relates to consciousness, intent, spirit and the brain.

The Tanden (Hara) in Chinese, Japanese & Buddhist Traditions

In speaking specifically of the lower of these three points, the word Tanden is often used interchangeably with the Japanese word “hara” which literally means "belly". In Chinese and Japanese tradition, it is considered the physical center of gravity for the human body and by extension the seat of one's internal energy (qi/chi/prana/ki). A master of calligraphy, swordsmanship, tea ceremony, martial arts is said to be "acting from the hara" in Japan. Buddhist teachers often instruct their students to centre their mind in this area to control their thoughts and emotions. Acting from the Tanden is said therefore to be related to the state of spiritual enlightenment. If you were to lie down on a large pentagram with your feet and hand connected to the points of the circle, your Tanden centre would fall within the pentagon within the centre of the symbol and the centre of the circle; the point at which all elements combine.

The Magic Circle to Contain & Concentrate Power

When working with a Magic Circle, after it’s been prepared, the elemental forces are invoked to be contained & concentrated within the sacred space. This process is covered in the Elemental Pentagram & Magic Circle Empowerments Course. Once the elemental forces are invoked within, the Circle acts as a natural energetic barrier to keep these forces concentrated within that particular space. It acts as a boundary to prevent any negative or hindering forces from affecting the energy, person/people and objects within the circle. The nature of the Magic Circle means the energy within is focused & reinforced. This creates an ideal energetic environment for your spiritual practice, magickal work and healing for yourself or others. ______________________ You can follow me & receive updates on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Wordpress, Twitter & Linkedin.
