Mirror Trap, Astral Mirror Dynamics

  Difficulty: Intermediate
  Prerequisites: Casual Conscious Projection, Energy Manipulation/Vampirism

  Description:   I first came across this technique during an encounter on the astral. I would rather not detail the exact circumstances, I'm not particularly fond of this memory. This being said, I did not invent this technique. This technique was stolen, then refined in practice.

  In reality, a mirror is just a sheet of glass with a coating on the back that allows photons to be reflected back at the viewer. However, the mind when viewing a mirror creates a subspace behind the mirror from the illusion created by the mirror. Energy flows where attention goes. Resultantly you may project your consciousness on the flip side of the mirror, and collect the energy that has pooled there. Astral mirrors create this subspace with greater intensity, and efficacy.

  Using this magickal property of mirrors, you can exploit, and amplify it's effects with simple construct programming.

  Technique:   Here is one technique to get you started with this skill. Modify as needed to suit your optimum functional state.

  Step 1: Obtain an object with a mirror-like reflective surface.

  Step 2:
 - Option 1: Project your mind into the mirror subspace and wait for someone to look into the mirror. When the psychic stream of attention enters the mirror, use it as a link to pull as much of there energy in as you like. Note however that pulling too much energy in a short time may alarm the target.

  -Option 2: Create and program an energetic construct to wait in the subspace and absorb energy as it comes. The construct can be farmed later. This is very effective to deploy in public areas such as washrooms.

  Note: When this technique is used on the astral rather then physical, the effects will be dramatically increased. It's so naturally effective that it commonly creates a state of mindlessness and submissiveness in the victims. This is especially prevalent in astral beings and occurs almost instantly. As a physical being you will have a moment to avert your eyes, when you feel your life force being drained from you.
