Stay On These Roads

I have said before that I don’t really have a Magickal Origin Story – a High-Strangeness event that convinces you, without any doubt, that Magick exits and your day to day existence is not as it seems. I have vague moments where I catch a glimpse of something other, but there’s no single experience that I would consider a Crossing the Rubicon type moment. Drugs, particularly psilocybin, DMT or LSD are usually the most touted ways to have one of these experiences, but while I’ve never had DMT, I have had psilocybin and LSD and found, for me at least, absolutely nothing spiritual Read More …

MAGICK PRIMER 03: Sigils, Sigils, Sigils

Read the rest of the Magick Primer MAGICK SIGILS To be honest, so much has been written about Sigils that I am not sure I can add anything of any shiny newness to the topic. But, a Magick Primer wouldn’t really be complete without some mention of Sigils. So instead of a big complicated treatise on the subject, I will try to make it as clear and precise as possible and then link you to some good resources if you want to delve a bit deeper into the area. WHAT IS A SIGIL? A sigil is a Magick symbol you create that Read More …

Those Pesky Limiting Beliefs

If you have been following the blog over the past few weeks you will know that I have been on a bit of a quest recently. It all started when I wondered why some of my Magick ended up getting me the exact opposite of what I wanted or often made the situation worse. After that  lots of you suggested that I look into the idea of maybe being cursed, hexed or otherwise negatively contaminated. So, I did some banishing rituals and finally wound up doing an Uncrossing ritual. In the end though, it became clear to me, that my problem was me, Read More …

The Uncrossing Ritual

So, in my last post I talked about the experience of sometimes getting the exact opposite of what you magicked for and discussed a bit about this has manifested in my life. One of the things that I disregarded as a factor was me being Cursed or Crossed or otherwise Hexed. However, as a number of people mentioned to me that I shouldn’t dismiss this idea so quickly, I said, yea why not? let’s look at this thing and see what I can do about it. The main feedback I got about doing an Uncrossing Ritual (i.e. a ritual to get rid Read More …

Are you getting the opposite of what you Desire?

Are you getting the opposite of what you Desire? The last few weeks have been an interesting time for me – mostly in that I have been reappraising my Magick workings and practices to try to sort out what works and what doesn’t in order to know what to keep and what to toss out. Although I have been know to say that I get very little return on my current Magick practice, my latest reflection has lead me to believe that this isn’t really always the case, but in a strange way. Looking through my Magick Diary and having Read More …
