An Amulet is an object that has the ability to protect or is inherent in its design or structure. The type of protection is reflected by the energy emitted; amulets can be made of any material and inscribed with words or sacred symbols. Typically crystals, metals, and herbs of a protective energy are used. Symbols like the Eye of Horus, the Pentacle, and the Hand of Hamsa are common.
Astral projection is the art of freeing one's soul, spirit, spark, from the material body, and riding the energies. One can freely travel on this plane, and if one understands how to adjust one's energy vibrations, you can project yourself anywhere on any plane that you can match the vibration.
Chakras are energy centers within, surrounding the body. In Veda's teachings, there are typically seven main Chakras, and in Buddhism, there are typically five. There are many minor Chakras. Each Chakra harnesses and expands a different type and vibration of energy. Balancing and harnessing the energies of the Chakras is a step to enlightenment, and if done correctly, can release the Kundalini. The Kundalini is the serpent of energy that climbs through the Chakras, joining them, leading one to divine enlightenment.

Evocation is the act of calling forth a energy, sprite, deity, or energy-based entity, which is already inside an area, object, or person. When one evokes, one calls the energy to the area or object but does not call it into their energy shield. Evocation allows the practitioner to speak to deities, spirits, energy beings, without risk of attachment or having their energy corrupted.
Incense is any herb, resin, or fragrant substance that is burned to create an aroma that is used to change vibrations of an area to the desire of the practitioner. Incense is associated with Air and used to cleanse tools, stones, and areas.
Every substance or combination of substances has different vibrations; therefore, every incense has a different purpose. Incense can be used for cleansing, setting the vibrations of an area, calling to spirits or deities, banishing, and evocations, or as an offering. Incense helps unify the mind, body, and spirit.
Invocation is the act of calling forth a energy, spirit, deity, or energy-based entities, which is external and bringing it internally. When one invokes, one calls the energy to them, allowing what was called to enter one's personal energy shield. Invocation allows the practitioner to speak to deities, spirits, energy beings internally, feel their energy, and in essence, combine energies. Invocation poses a considerable risk to the practitioner.

Each system of belief has its own methods, but all require the practitioner being in control of mind, body, and spirit.

The Tree of Life generally represents a map from this plane of physical existence to the plane of the divine. The Tree is like a ladder with planes existing between Earth and Heaven. The Qabalistic Tree calls these planes Sephiroth, and each is at a different vibration, Malkuth (Earth) being the roots at the lowest vibration, Keter or Kether (Heaven) being the top of the Tree at the highest vibration. The left side represents the feminine nature of the universe and the right, the Masculine. The center pillar or the trunk represents the direct path with five Sephiroth, including the hidden Daath. The Tree of Life is a roadmap to the cosmos within us and the cosmos outside of us.
