Your Brain on Magic

energy-bodies For the last two weeks I’ve fallen off my daily magical practice schedule. I like to have some sort of daily practice, even if it’s just one offering and prayer, or just some energy work. I usually try for more than that, but sometimes you’ve got to make do with what you can.  The past two weeks have been kind of different. Both my wife and I are starting new jobs and getting used to new schedules. There have been 3 sick kids at home, all adjusting to their first experiences with day care (and grumpy as all shit!).  At the end of the night it’s been all I could do to collapse with a glass wine or tea and relax a bit before heading to bed exhausted. So my magical practice has suffered. I planned on picking it back up next week when our schedules change to more manageable levels.

Thing is, I’ve felt like crap this past week and I didn’t even realize it. Just sludgy, and somewhat depressed. I didn’t even associate this with my lack of practice. Last night I did a full daily routine. Full banishing  with energy work, and a Mass of Baphomet in the day and hour of Mercury with offerings like I used to do before I fell off the practice. I had the clearest dreams. I woke up feeling amazing and happy and energetic. No depression or sludge. Colors brighter, smells sharper and all that cliche jazz. I just had an unshakable happy disposition and tons of energy that has lasted all day.

Then I realized, this is your brain on magic. This is how I normally feel and it’s just become so routine I’ve failed to notice it until I didn’t feel it for awhile. Slowly I was slipping back to a steady state zero. If there is any justification for doing magic and or energy work, this is certainly a big one.  Sometimes it’s good to have these reminders on exactly why one practices in the first place.


It’s better with magic.

    You know brother, I been going through something similar. Though not from lack of magick, from lack of spirituality. I started setting up my Altars again and it’s been helping me again. I guess that’s my brain on spirituality LOL

      Hi Jose,
      Aye, for me magic and spirituality go hand in hand. Their so meshed together I can’t separate the two anymore :). Setting up ones altars is a great feeling! Their like spiritual generators! Good luck!

    Amen. Or as a druid, I should say AWEN? Or as a… So mote it be?

    A year into daily practice and I don’t get sick. Like, at all. Ever. Call it spiritual influence or harmonious relations with the astral, or regular exercise or preventative mental health. I don’t know. I just know it works.

      Hi Andrew,

      Thanks for the comment. Your practice is one I greatly admire, how you stick with it everyday. I think having a strong daily practice does go a long way in keeping one from getting sick. I’ve noticed the same, when I’m practicing daily, I practically never get sick.

      Awen indeed!

  3. This post came at a really opportune time for me. It kicked my ass into doing purification stuffs again in my morning routine. And you’re absolutely right…the sludge just melts away. Thanks. 🙂

    Just had a similar experience just before reading your post! Greater clarity and peace of mind for sure. Was reminded of why I chose this path in the first place. 🙂

    Just started reading your blog, and I’m enjoying it thus far.
    The other day I happened to sit down and get into magic(k) mode myself. While my magic(k) operations are about once or twice a month…I do recognize the power those acts have to reinforce a more centered persona and more powerful ego-self.
    Magic(k)al practice is a definite boost to one’s emotional state.
