Names and Magick
One of the strongest aspects of magick is the use of names. By this I mean the use of one word or phrase to represent something much grander.
For example, if someone were to mention my name, you might think of a blogger, a writer, a workshop leader, a hypnotherapist, an occultist, a magician, a Tantric, a musician, or something else. Perhaps you might think of several of those things. To me, my name is a representation of all of those things and more.
The same is true of designing a word to represent a magickal goal. You don't have to think of "After doing a divination to show a positive outcome of doing a ritual, I'll be doing that planned rite to obtain $1,000 to
In my previous three posts (HERE, HERE, and HERE) I described an easy way to astral project, why astral travel is important and how to do it, and the concept explaining why performing astral magick can be very powerful. In the last post I wrote, "it’s possible for us to prevent ourselves from achieving our magickal goals by unconsciously countering our magick."

In that second post I pointed out that astral travel was about more than going to the moon or visiting a girlfriend or boyfriend. It's even more that visiting someone to help heal them from the astral plane or to have consensual astral sex with them. Astral travel can lead to the fountainheads of spiritual wisdom. However, as they say in the infomercials, "But wait! There's more!"
Most practitioners of magick didn't just chant a spell or wave a wand and woosh!, magick happened. And yet, you wouldn't be reading this if you didn't believe or hadn't experienced the fact that magick works. So
In my previous post I shared a surprisingly easy method to consciously project Out of Body also known as Astral Projection. But after you do that, then what? Here's what I wrote in Modern Magick:
Once you are able to freely project your consciousness into your Astral Body and travel around in that state, what good will it do you? Why even learn how to Astral Project in the first place? Sure, it is fun and exhilarating, but going to a movie can be fun and going dancing can be exhilarating. And movie-going and dancing take a great deal less preparation and practice.
There are many books which discuss how wonderful it is to be out-of-body. But once you achieve the ability of Projection,
