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 […]

Five Keys for Magickal Success

Currently, I am in Irvine, California, assisting in a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) training. NLP is a set of tools that will allow you to communicate better with yourself (between the conscious and subconscious mind) as well as communicate better with others in order to achieve ecological goals. For the purposes here, ecology means good for […]

Developing External Magickal Energy

In part one of this series I outlined the three parts of the most popular theory concerning how magick works. In the second part of this series I described how to begin developing the ability to work with recognizing, raising and manipulating innate or inner magickal energy. In that second post I described how to create […]

Developing Inner Magickal Energy

As I described in my previous post, How Magick Works, the concept that magick works by raising and directing some sort of magickal energy is currently the most popular paradigm for understanding how magick works. If you have ever read a spell from a book of spells and followed the directions, only to have no […]

How Magick Works

One of the most common questions I receive seems to be the most basic: How does magick work? Why is it that when you properly perform a ritual or spell you get the desired results? The simplest and most honest answer is: I don’t know. It seems weird, then, that we should literally depend upon […]

The Secrets of Real Love Spells—Part 4

In the first part of this series I discussed why the common, non-magickal concept of a love spell was a bad idea, but that real love spells were a practical option for magickal folks. In the second part of this series I described how it’s a myth that “opposites attract” but an occult truism that “like attracts […]

Magic and Magick

For many years, calling the illusions presented by stage performers “magic” could get you in trouble for pretending to be supernatural, even if what you were doing was comedic tricks for kids. As a result, many performers, rather than calling themselves magicians, used other terms such as “conjuror,” “juggler,” or “prestidigitator.” Aleister Crowley came up […]
