Magick flows through life. You can feel the current through and around you. Sometimes the feeling is so strong we feel overwhelmed. Other times we wonder if the magick somehow abandoned us.
No we are never abandoned by magick. How can we be separate from what we are made of in the first place?
What’s all this philosophizing about?
I have been stuck on what to write about on this web site! Between repeating myself to death and feeling like I am not really saying anything new or helpful I can’t get myself to write. All I would be doing is writing for the sake of putting words on your screen if I pushed forward without knowing why I was stuck.
Luckily for both of us I found a path.
Life is Made of Magick!
What has made this writing project so difficult is I have been immersed in researching and studying magick most of my life. Being immersed in anything for decades can lead to a kind of limited vision on what might help others on their path.
When I tuned into the idea that the current of life itself is where magick flows from I had a very helpful shift. If everything everyone says or does is magickal then why not write about magick from the point of view of living life?
Of course life doesn’t always feel so magickal. In those moments though, especially in those moments, are opportunities to grow the magick in our lives. For some of us this comes pretty easily. For others not so much.
What am I talking about? What do I mean by life is magick?
Living Everyday Magick
Making a list of where to find magick in your life would be a nearly impossible task. There is no area of life or activity without magick. None.
Since life itself comes from the energies and forces we tap when doing magick everything about life is magick. Whether we see the energy doing its thing or not doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Our ability to perceive and work with the energy of magick governs what we can see and do with magick. The power surrounding and permeating reality is always present.
- Making breakfast is a magickal act.
- Voting is a magickal act.
- Sex is a magickal act.
- Watching television is a magickal act.
- Driving cars is a magickal act.
- Looking at a stranger walking by, repeating words in our heads, petting the dog, growing a garden, it is all magickal!
If it is all magickal why doesn’t it feel very magickal?
Bringing MORE Magick into Your Life
Just because life is fundamentally magickal doesn’t mean we always feel so magickal. The reason for this is the power is a potential. Between lack of attention and too much to do or choose from our magick potential gets diluted and divided. These days I suspect our physical health is also diluting our magickal potential.
Most of us as a result walk around with very weak magick for any given goal in life.
Imagine if you could focus your magick like a laser beam. What if you could get some help from say a planet? Or a plant or a crystal. You can learn to work with other entities to boost your magick. All of creation is magick potential. Finding willing non-human partners in magick can be a big help.
Effective and powerful magick comes in many forms along many paths. The various practices and forms of magick as well as working with the energies of the natural world open options for anyone willing to commit to the process. Not everyone is suited to every approach. But there is something for everyone.
Like I wrote at the top I have been stuck on what to share in my writing. When you realize magick is flowing everywhere though ideas for working with life on a magickal level explode! There isn’t any aspect of life where one cannot apply one’s personal magick. The only question is how effective will your magick be in getting you to your goals. Luckily we lots of tools to become masterful magick practitioners.
