Emotion is one key to unlocking altered states. In shamanistic based ritual, one can induce an altered state through drumming, dancing, etc. In Witchcraft, one can use emotion to "raise power," directing it towards a goal utilising Will, in combination with Intent.
Emotion is ony one component, and by itself may be inadequate, although it can manifest certain phenomena such as poltergiest activity, which seems to be telekenetic energy being manifested through the subconscious emotional state of young teens, paticularly girls.
Don't know that this needed it's own thread, though.
In my experience, it is only when I become emotionally exhausted by my own efforts in a matter and hand 'the problem' over to higher powers that I experience altered states of consciousness which provide answers.
I think that the emotions are the fuel.. the difference between pondering and knocking...
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
