Are you looking for a little help with your magick? Feeling overwhelmed with all of the opinions on how it should be done? Perhaps you're looking for book recommendations or places to get great supplies? Maybe you're just here for references on herbs, crystals, tarot, astrology, sigils, what candles to use - or even a free tarot card draw or two...
Then you've come to the right place. All of these things are being created for this site right now. Bookmark my blog page to check for new content as it gets posted, or sign up for the occasional reminder in your inbox via newsletter here.
Meanwhile, let's talk about some common misconceptions about magick. (If you're already advanced, then go ahead and use the menu bar above or on the right to get where you'd like to go.)
Why the difference in spelling? It's a simple way to differentiate between Stage Magic and Illusion from Energetic Magick used in ritual and ceremony.
Magick is way of life – a way of being. Living magickally means that you are aware of, and take responsibility for, the fact that everything is energy and that we are able to influence that energy for benefit or harm. Whether we know it or not, we are always manipulating energy. Just moving our bodies is a form of manipulating energy. Magickal living requires us to be more aware and conscious of how we are manipulating energy. The better we become at using our emotions and will to power our own energetic influence (rather than letting them use us), the better we become at manifestation and creating the lives we love.
Practicing Magick is an adjunct to this way of being and living. As a practitioner, we use tools to help us focus our will when we are manipulating these life energies. Tools like candles, sigils, herbs, gemstones, incantations, incense – anything that corresponds energetically to our intentions in that moment. By using the energies of these tools, as well as aligning our timing with the correct prominent astrological energies for our intentions, we create an environment that also aligns with our goals. If you would like to practice magick in addition to living a magickal life, you will need to know (or have access to) these correspondences.
That’s where this website comes in.
Before the internet (yes, I AM that old! lol), it was difficult to come across information on magick. There were books, but they were more difficult to find. Now you can do a search and find thousands of websites and books on magick. The problem is, how do you know that what you’re finding is even remotely accurate? Did you know for example, that there are thousands of books on Amazon that are stolen or purchased from the original authors, re-worded using 'spinning' software, given a new cover and fake author name, and then sold? The people doing this don't even read what the software regurgitated, and have no knowledge of the topics they're covering. All in order to take advantage of the fact that certain search terms (like magick and Wicca) are becoming more popular, and they’d like to deceive you to take advantage of that.
It’s past time that I share what I’ve learned from teachers and classic books on magick, and share these resources with you to hopefully help balance out the fakery that’s happening. There are links to Amazon and other sites, and yes, they might be affiliate links (I'll let you know when they are), but these resources are going to be ones that you can trust are from reputable authors and companies.
Many people hear the word "religion" and cringe, especially if they're interested in magick. Of course there are those that have no problem with religion at all. This is one topic that deserves more attention and clarity than I can fit on this page. If you want to know my thoughts about it, click here to check out my article "Spirituality vs Religion".
I will say here though - Magick does not need a "religious" background or structure for it to work. AND you can be of any religion and still practice your own brand of magick. You don't need to claim ANY religion to live a magickal lifestyle.
Many people out in the world, and in the media, collapse spirituality and religion into the same meaning. They don't mean the same thing at all. Click here to see what I'm talking about.
Don't know where to start? If you're a beginner, you can look at the different types of magick and see what you are most drawn to. What makes you feel like you want to immerse yourself in it? What aligns the most with your current beliefs? Click the link above to check them out.
Don't feel obligated to pick just one type of magick either, you can use bits of more than one if you like. Many call that being 'eclectic', meaning you aren't bound to any one school of thought, but rather take what works from many different methods and combine them into your own style.
If you're more advanced, or already know what kind of magick you're going to practice, you can delve deeper into it, or other topics by picking the appropriate button in the navigation bar above that interests you. Those pages lead to other more specific pages that relate to that topic such as tarot, astrology, candles, herbs, etc.
As I mentioned earlier, magick is a lifestyle, and a well rounded practitioner will use as many tools as they can. If you're new to the occult, take your time - don't feel as if you need to learn everything all at once. You can choose to focus on one aspect of magick, or choose to learn a little of more than one aspect each time you practice.
There are so many opinions and magickal styles out in the world that you may feel overwhelmed. I understand. My goal is to share whatever experience and insights I may have with you, and from there, you choose what feels right to you. There are as many spiritual paths on this planet as there are people. You do you. Forcing yourself to walk a path that feels wrong will ultimately lead to magick that doesn't work and that could backfire.
I'll have the basics and resources here for you, and you practice what works for you.
