Improve Your Magick—Get Out of the Box

You do a magick ritual, spell, technique, etc., and to your amazement (or maybe not) it works. In fact, it works very well. So you mark this in your magickal journal as a method you can use to achieve successful results. Each time you use the technique it’s successful. Woo-hoo! This is something that works.

So you use this method repeatedly. You don’t notice that the degree of success slowly decreases. In fact, you may be puzzled when you notice that this technique—a magickal system that had worked so well—isn’t working at all. How can this happen?

In a word, the answer is probably “focus.” When you do something repeatedly, it is common for it to become a habit. You do the techniques by rote, simply repeating the words and actions without even thinking about what you’re doing.

It’s good for the practice of magick to become a habit: Do magick regularly.

It’s not effective to let the practices themselves become a habit.

Part of magick involves the focus of energy. If you’re not focusing, if you’re just repeating what you always do, the energy isn’t there; the magick loses its power and effectiveness.

So if your rituals and magick are starting to fail, what can you do? Get out of the box you’re in. Simply put, try something new. Learn and perform a new technique.

Why will this make a difference? Your previous success has shown that you can already harness magickal energy and achieve goals. By trying something new you will have to really focus on what you’re doing. You’ll bring the focus back to your magick. And you’ll bring back your success.

Back to the Box

Once you are again successful, pay attention to what you’re doing with the new ritual. Become aware of the feelings, emotions, focus, actions, etc. of the new technique. You can bring those feelings, focus, actions, etc., back to the magickal method you previously used successfully and will find that it once again is effective.

Have you used magickal techniques effectively, only to find them slowly (or quickly) begin to fail? What did you do about it?
