Daily Practice – Now With Motivation! #domagick

Today I wanted to talk a little bit about the importance of doing regular magickal work. I’ve blogged about this before. Author and personal close friend of mine, Andrieh Vitimus, is starting up his new site this month (February) called Do Magick. For those of you who remember the Magickal 30 that he used to run, this is a newer incarnation of that. It’s a bit easier since participation happens in social media groups and on your own blog, twitter, or Facebook. A simple hashtag added to posts makes it easy for people following or participating to find the magicians who are actively participating.

The general premise is that you spend some time researching and preparing for the magick, then you spend at least thirty days embarking on the magick. During this time you journal what you’re doing and take really good notes while you’re actually working through the magick. And you share this (as detailed or vague as you like, though detail is more fun) through social media so that other magicians can follow along and see your progress on the magical work.

The entire project is meant to encourage magicians to go beyond thinking about magick, and reading about magick, and actually doing the work. Those of you who know me know that I am big on people actually doing the work. So I wholly support the entire project, and will be participating regularly. Posts for my own work will appear on my personal blog so that readers and those interested in magick will hopefully be inspired to do their own work. Posts will be tagged #domagick like this one. Of course if you’re not much of a voyeur and you’re ready to jump in and join us, you can go to the website and learn how to sign up. There are instructions on how the whole process works and if you need more information you can contact Andrieh directly or check out one of the groups available to support participants.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up! I look forward to seeing what you’re doing and I hope you’ll enjoy reading about what I’m doing.

    Sorry for the dumb question, but what magick takes 30 days? Maybe I don’t want enough for my imagination to stretch that far.

    I’ve recently petitioned a Goetic Death spirit for help gaining a job (Funeral Director Assistant). Could you point me in a direction? Would I just petition the same spirit again and again? Or Perhaps add in a honey pot spell etc?

    Any help it appreciated, I’m new to magick. I just need a nudge in the right direction and I’ll do the rest.

      Some magick requires immersion. Especially when it’s about self-transformation. A lot of times, it’s not as easy as doing a quick spell and forgetting it. LOL And as it turns out – a lot of magick REQUIRES self-work. Some people don’t realize that.

      For a job as a funeral director, you might try Belial actually (if you didn’t already). You could include Bune and Murmur in that working for an extra punch. Offerings go a long way, too. If you want to add additional spellwork, it won’t hurt. However – if none of it works… there might be some self-work involved.

        I’ve used King Beleth, probably a good Deamon to use when I’m a Funeral Director as he is meant to be good to get over a loss. I’ve worked with Beleth before, Murmur so far has eluded me. I do intend to work with the famous Bune, so maybe a quick hello.
        I might try your rebirth spell in Keys of Ocat for transformation. I may have some past Christian belief lingering.
        Thanks for your help as always.
