Your Life is Your Magick

As the years go on, and I do more magick, teach more magickal sudents, witness the lives of more people, and become very, very gradually clearer in general about the way things work, I have noticed some clear points about things that make one person better at magick than another.  It is not necessarily someone’s raw power, or their faith in their Gods, or even their strength of will (contrary to popular opinion) that makes someone a powerful magickal practitioner.  It’s actually so simple, it seems non-magickal, which makes this discussion seem contradictory.  Here are important correlations I have noticed:

  1.  People who stick to their goals in their daily routines have better outcomes with magick.    If you set the intention to exercise, or to do a daily morning meditation, or to eat a certain way, or to practice divination or do a daily sacred space opening, you need to do it.  Magick is all about intention-  and not just SAYING that something is your intention, but living that path.  If you normally have intentions that you let slide, this is more likely to also happen with magickal intentions that you set.
  2. People who are able to let negative emotions go and move on not only do better magick but have more inherent psychic protection.  I have noticed that people who complain a lot, people who blame others or outside influences for everything, people who feel a negative bout of emotions and then let it stick with them-  all tend to attract more negative circumstances.  These life habits tend to create spirals in which the person gets stuck and is then often unable to shift things forward.  If you can’t shift yourself out of a funk, or don’t take emotional responsibility for yourself, you won’t be able to make big shifts magickally either.
  3. People who have a strong sense of moral fiber tend to have great magickal results.  The reason magick is being done in the first place is very important to its outcome.  Soooo many people will argue with me on this, but I really believe that if you want an outcome for good, positive reasons, even if the work may be somewhat dark by certain standards, that it has a better chance of succeeding smoothly.  What I mean is-  you need to have moral standards and stick to them.  Behave toward others in the way you would want them to behave toward you.  Don’t do magick simply to get revenge, or to manipulate someone just because you want to.  This will not bode well for you in the long run.  Spiritual traditions the world over all have morality teachings, and this is because the magick of morality affects outcomes.  A lot of people argue and say they don’t believe in the concept of karma…but if you do magick you must at least believe in the concept of energy, and the principle that like attracts like, because this is what all spells are based on, pretty much.  Like attracts like…and if you manipulate others, they will do it to you, and worse.
  4. People who take great care of their health tend to get better magickal results.  A lot of people will argue with me on this too, because they don’t want it to be true, but those of us who practice real magick know that the mind/body/spirit connection is alive and real.  When you tend to the energies in the body, the energy of the mind is sharper and clearer (allowing you to live some of the above principles more easily) and your connection to your spiritual self and guides is clearer and more accessible as well.  This is why, conversely, energy healing can have a positive effect on the health of the body.  If you work out, I feel you will become a better person, and a better magickal practitioner.  You will flush negative energy from your field regularly, and you will push yourself-  holding yourself to a high standard of results.  This transfers over into the results that can be attained in magick.  Eating cleanly and keeping the mind right of course all lend to this as well, and are the basis of any good personal health regime.

There are more traits beyond these that are also important in magick, but I think you are getting my drift.  Essentially the summary of all of this is that the way you live your life is directly reflected in the quality of your magick, and vice versa.  Therefore, if you have the above positive qualities in your lifestyle, you will eventually do less and less small magick to affect individual life circumstances, because you won’t need it.  Your magick will evolve to center around uncovering the mysteries of consciousness, interacting more directly with the Gods for the sake of inspiration, awe and learning, and for realizing your spiritual self in the grand scheme of things.  I hope all of these things for you.  Blessed Be.
