I'm going to find out for sure someday.
If I can drag myself out of my habit of having a will like the ocean (It ebbs and flows and when it decides to accomplish a task, it gets done, but outside factors determine the ultimate course of action and anything without a suitably motivating cause will have a lackluster effect.) I want to ask Paralda himself about this.
I think my mental elemental (im)balances are affecting my physical health through analogy because I've been having physical issues that match the layout my Soul Mirrors crop up for my entire life. Somehow I find myself believing (as of now, since I just now started thinking about this) that if I attain equilibrium that I may end up balancing out physically as well (because mental health does have a profound effect on physical health).
For now take this as the blathering of an particularly ambitious blind-idiot.
I'm thinking of designing a system for myself based on some stuff from Chaos Magick and the stuff I learned in the probationer's class.
I'm not going to share it all, but I'm going to utilize a method of randomization to determine my daily askesis routine and make the focus to bring myself to center. I will have 8 total routines, divided by element and attitude (Active or Passive), and let the randomization be a sort of way for the universe to pick what's best for me. In this system, passive and active take on slanted meanings. An active routine will be practice in making the elements obey me, a passive routine will be an act of devotion or servitude to an elemental sphere. All the routines will start with the basics of the probationer's class and end with a particular exercise appropriate to what is decided for that day.
I have a neat little toy (literally a piece from a game) that I saw a profound analogy in, so I'm making that the method of determining my focus for the day.
A spinner from Twister has 16 sections with 4 sets of 4 colors. A hand and a foot represent control and servitude, and each color on the twister board belongs to the traditional designations of the platonic elements in several different schools of Hermetics.
Red - Fire
Blue - Water
Green - Air
Yellow - Earth
Hand - Rule
Foot - Servitude
and we can further break it down into Mercy and Severity,
Left Hand- An act of Force
Right hand- An act of Aid
Left Foot- Serving a Forceful Cause
Right Foot- Serving a Benevolent Cause
to be fair, nothing will be inherently evil or selfish. I took great care to not use those words because destructive acts are not conducive to making familiars and influencing spirits (har har)
There are four elemental workings I tend to call the 4 Adorations of Chaos that I will include, but I'll re-work them to fit into the framework because these acts are supposed to be weeks or months long.
All this to get me to stop lounging around and get something done.
