Extinguish is for me the most important milestone to master before fire creation. Any pyrokinetisist practicioner should understand the historical signifigance of this important mastery. From Spontaneous human combustion to the fiery poltergeist effect. One delving into the study and practice of fire shaping should know how to master extinguish first and foremost.
One such case study for the aspiring Pyrokinetics practicioner would be the case of Barbara Booley 1971-1975 among others When spontaneous fires beset her for several years.
Extinguish is the topic I would like to explore in this post.
Step 1. One must understand stasis field and its feel. One must be well practiced in it to apply the same kinetic influence in this practice.
Step 2. My main mistake was to focus on the flame itself which is the kinetic energy which has already been released. To extinguish one must target the source of the reaction.
Step 3. Awareness and anchoring will primarily be on the wick of the candle then the wax at its base then the air surrounding it in that order of importance. The wick will be the primary focus.
Step 4. In the same way you apply stasis field to a windmill in front of a fan or a radiometer. You will target the wick and focus visualize it slowing (remmeber to includethe wax and air.
Step 5. Slip into the mediation know that the flame will get smaller. It is often helpfull to state or say in your mind stasis field to activate the same internal programming you learned with the raidometer.
Step 6. You may find it takes several attempts to entrain with the wick so be consistent in your training. I keep a candle in the the bathroom so at least once a day I train.
Notes: You may notice it getting smaller and then flaring bigger this is ok as you work on this type of construct this will occur less and less. Try working with a tea candle to start and shorten the wick working your way up in length with each success.
This technique has worked for me and I would consider the stasis field and flame pulse training to be a prerequisite to success in this discipline.
