Magick & Magicians—Tantra & Tantrics

Magic & Magicians I am a magician. I practice magick and I perform magic. I’ve been a “magician member” of  The Magic Castle, a world-famous club for magician entertainers. I have performed magic for all age groups and have entertained thousands of people. Magic, like magick, has several subcategories. Two such subcategories whose differentiation can […]

Where the “New Age” Goes Wrong

According to Thelemites, followers of the beliefs of Aleister Crowley, we entered the new age (or more accurately, New Aeon), in 1904. According to astrologers, we are either at the cusp or beginning of the new Age of Aquarius. Some say that this new age is an era of invention and universal brotherhood. Others say […]

Religion—>Spirituality—>Mysticism—>Magick

On Monday, September 10, 2012, the Dalai Lama wrote the following to his friends on Facebook(!): All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This […]

Magick and the Butterfly Effect

Readers, please enjoy this guest blog post by Shawn Martin Scanlon, author of Everything You Want to Know About Magick (But Were Afraid to Ask). In 1952, Ray Bradbury wrote a short story about time travel. This classic story, one of the most re-published science fiction stories of all time, deals with a man of […]

Synchronicity and Magick

I recently read a blog which claimed that the author’s magick was improving because he was witnessing increased synchronicities in his life. Is this a valid point? Well, I have to answer both yes and no. Yes, his magick is increasing but not in the way his blog implied. Blinded With Science? Today, the concept […]

A Book That Needs to be Written

Are you familiar with Tantra? If you live in a Western culture, you probably know that Tantra is “that sex stuff.” It’s about “spiritualized sex,” the Kama Sutra, weird sex positions, and sex that lasts for hours. Didn’t Sting say so? (Okay, now he admits it was a joke.) Even in India, the birthplace of […]

That’s One Small Step…

First Step on the Moon I’ve rarely met any person who has found magick by suddenly leaping into effective evocations and rituals. Some have tried. Most have failed. The ones who succeed for the longest most often did not jump directly into magick. Rather they started looking for some way to enhance their spiritual development. […]

Magick and the Nature of Evil

If you’ve ever seen a “slasher” film, this scenario is going to be familiar to you: The mad, “pure evil” slasher comes after his victim with an axe. There’s a loud “thump!” and a scream. The victim looks in horror at his shoulder, now issuing copious spurts of fake red blood. Jason Voorhees character from […]

Raven Grimassi talks about The Cauldron of Memory

Raven Grimassi recently uploaded a YouTube video in which he explains some of the concepts behind his book, The Cauldron of Memory: Retrieving Ancestral Wisdom & Knowledge. Watch here: This book is a particular favorite of mine, because as I like to say – we all have dead people! Rather than focusing on Wicca or […]

If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?

Two years ago I made a blog post about poverty thinking and how that can be a cause of impoverishment. I showed that on some level many people see the wealth of the world as being like a pie, and if you make your piece bigger, someone else will get a smaller piece. Not wanting […]
