NINJA MAGICK
(Budo Ryu Lesson – Please Read In Full)

You may or may not believe in magick, and that is up to you and your spiritual path. One thing is for sure, the ninja did believe in magick, & the higher level of ninjutsu training is learning the ancient ninja methods of spells & magick. I personally believe in magick, as it is very well documented that I practice wicca as a form of spirituality. This spiritual practice and belief in the metaphysical realm is one of the reasons why I was honored with the ranks and titles that I have (Anshu “暗主” = Dark Master)

Many say that magick is all in your mind, & this is true. But just because it is in your mind, does not mean that it is not real. Your mind is the most important tool in working magick, as well as the study of ninjutsu & bujutsu.

Focus is the key, & if you’re distracted, than your mind keeps jumping from thought to thought. If you are not focused, your spells won’t be very effective. Mental clarity, concentration, & balance are essential to magick. That’s why ninja, witches and other magicians often practice meditation; it trains & disciplines your mind.

Meditation strengthens the link between you and the divine. When your mind is calm and receptive, you can communicate with angels, spirits, past loved ones, & whatever higher power you recognize in the metaphysical world.

I can go on and on with this lesson, but the point of this lesson is to increase the understanding that in the ancient world of ninjutsu, the practice of magick is more important than learning un-armed fighting techniques.

“…there is no benefit in the defiance of regular habits that may be powerful and may be misunderstood. On the other hand, you must be careful that you do not elevate any esoteric belief to be all – powerful – You must keep your head about you. Bushi warriors life to wear good armor, not only to protect themselves from arrows, but also, so that they feel brave and are prepared to die immediately as a result of any fighting that they do; using these spells, similar to using quality armor.”

Anshu Christa Jacobson – Book Review – True Path of the Ninja

 

This is a book review of the title “True Path of the Ninja“. This is a definitive translation of the SHONINKI, one of the most prominent historical text that we have left from the feudal era of Japan.

The Shoninki was written in 1682 by Natori Masatake of the Kishu-ryu school of ninjutsu. Although the text is not very long, it reflects a certain way of thinking about ninjutsu, which is most interesting to anyone who wishes to learn more than just techniques. It is also important to keep in mind that the text was written for a selected contemporary audience. Without commentary and interpretation of the text, much would be lost. Therefore, a great translation is needed to understand the depth of the shoninki and the teachings of the kishu ryu school of ninjutsu.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK – TRUE PATH OF THE NINJA FOR ANY REAL SERIOUS NINJUTSU PRACTITIONER.

Take Care, Be Safe &
Good Luck in your Journey of Budo.
