The Hidden Factor of Magick

“Will this ritual or spell really work?” There are really only two possible answer to this question: “No” or “I don’t know.” There are some rituals and spells that have no rhyme or reason to them. They don’t work. Or at best you get something out of them in spite of the ritual. So in […]

My Second Attempt at Magick—A Failure?

Two Lessons in Life In my previous post I shared how I performed some magick at a young age. Clearly, however, it was not the result of a truly trained magician. Unknowingly, I happened to have followed a pattern that equated with the practice of magick. It was unintended, natural, and successful. The second attempt […]

My First Magick

Topic suggested by Chirotus. Thank you! Most people don’t completely remember their early childhood. Freud suggested this was the result of our embarrassment over ideas and actions of our early youth and called it “motivated forgetting.” However, many people remember certain events from that period that had a strong effect on them.

Don’t Take My Word For It

Preston Sturgis was one of the top screenwriters and directors in Hollywood’s history. His Sullivan’s Travels manages to be wildly humorous, inventive, and touching while dealing with serious social issues. His mother, Mary Estelle Dempsey, married a traveling salesman, but moved to Paris to be a singer when Preston was just 3. She moved back to […]

Five Magickal Keys to Successful New Year’s Resolutions

Four years ago (wow, has time flown!) I made the following post to my blog. I thought that after so many years (and so many posts) it would be relevant to look at again: Have you considered making any New Year’s Resolutions (NYRs)?
