Fifteen Minutes to Better Magick

No one likes to talk about it, but we've all experienced it: the disappointment of ineffective magick. Spells don't always work, and the frustration caused by magickal failure can build up over time and hold us back from achieving our full potential. No one likes to fail, and if we don't nip the problem of ineffective spellwork in the bud, we run the risk of giving up on the hope and promise of powerful, miraculous magick. You want success; you want to cast spells that meet their mark consistently and efficiently. That's why I wrote The Witch's Bag of Tricks; I wanted to open up a way forward, offer a hand in pulling my fellow witches out of the muck of mediocre magick.

Through all the ups and downs of my own magickal life, I've discovered what it takes to keep one's practice fresh, effective, and thriving. The secret is simple: if we aren't getting better, we're getting worse. When we dare to go further spiritually, when we strive to increase our magickal and psychic abilities, it all suddenly becomes very exciting again. By teaching and challenging ourselves in new ways, we grow, and as a result, our magick benefits.

One way to boost your skills and improve your magick is with a daily magickal workout. Strengthening your magick is easy, and it doesn't take a lot of time, either. In fact, if you can spare just fifteen minutes a day to flex your magickal muscles, you'll see major improvements in your spellcasting within a moon cycle. Here's a magickal workout you can do each day to keep your practice vibrant and your spellwork sharp.

Flex your Magickal Muscles

Five minutes of spiritual development, five minutes of psychic training, and five minutes of honing your magick skill—just fifteen minutes to a total magickal workout that will get your spellcasting abilities in tip-top shape. You'll see the benefits of the magickal workout quickly, as the effectiveness of your spellwork will grow in leaps and bounds. Try to come up with your own ideas for magickal exercises you can try, and find ways to weave your routine into your daily activities. Like any workout regimen, keeping it fun, fresh, and convenient is the key to success.
