A psychic construct refers to visualizing a scene and then imaginatively stepping into it to then visualize the desired outcome of a spell. Usually it’s used to create an astral level image of our altar, or a “place of power” we can visit. The POP can be anything you like & symbolic. Actions like ascending or descending stairs symbolize changing consciousness levels.
The heart temple meditation is one example.
HEART TEMPLE EXERCISE
(A Rosicrucian exercise)
The temple can be any style you want. Your imagination will provide the images. You can put as much detail into it as you like such as texture & color variations, light and shadow plays. Your imagination gets involved. Relax and deep breathe for a few minutes. Then visualize ascending 7 steps to enter a temple. The only furnishing is a flame. Your imagination will design it. Go along with it.
Focus your imaginary gaze on the flame, and will the flame to raise higher and lower on command. Do this 7 times. Then return the flame to it's maintenance level. Depart the temple by descending the 7 steps. Return to your ordinary surroundings and ground your energy.
The Heart Temple is an astral realm thought-construct to develop visualization skills and psychic sensitivity. It forges a path to communicate with your true-will aka "higher self" consciousness. The will expresses through the heart center & via visualization thru the 3rd eye, so it aids these as well. The symbolism is meaningful to the subconscious. The temple is you as 7 is the number of the Temple & chakras. The flame is your heart-of-being. Don't worry if the whole visualization doesn't flow. It takes repetition to succeed. Sometimes you can't get all the steps. Just Keep Going. Sometimes the flame won't budge. Stick with it. Aim for the ideal. Practice.
