Integrating concepts into your life through your subconscious

One of the skills I’ve picked up over the years is one where I integrate magical concepts into my life on a practical basis by imprinting those concepts into my subconscious and then allowing those concepts to integrate into my life via my actions and life occurrences.

Sounds really similar to sigils, right? The main difference however, is that instead of focusing on a specific desire, what I’m actually focusing on is a concept that isn’t focused on a desire, so much as it’s focused on attuning myself to a particular energy or force. William G. Gray wrote about this practice in Magickal Ritual Methods, describing how you could take a ceremonial tool and imprint that tool into your mind so that you would then understand and embody the conceptual force that the tool as a symbol represented.

I’ve taken that approach and used it lately to integrate the Chinese Element model and classical Planetary energy model into my life. For example, I’ve worked with the planetary energy of mercury through my networking. By integrating that planetary energy into my subconscious, I’m using it to influence my conscious decisions when it comes to attending networking events. This kind of integration allows me to work with these types of concepts and energies on a deeper level, while also gradually aligning them with my conscious mind, for when I can work with them more overtly. And how I do this? I have a table of correspondences tacked to my wall that I look at each day for a couple minutes in order to imprint those correspondences on my mind. I’ve found it useful for not just memorizing, but also integrating those correspondences/concepts into my life, so that I’m more open to their influence in my daily activities.
