Day 23: Lack of Persistence #domagick

Today Bathin told me that my own lack of persistance was standing in the way of my good fortune and success.  You know how I often talk about how Daemons can be archaic or vague when answering questions? Yeah – well that wasn’t the case. He was pretty blunt about it. If he had been a person it would have sounded like, “You are your own problem.  You stand in your own way because you haven’t been persistent.”

To which I probably would have said (and did think), “But I work hard and I produce!”

And he basically said, “Yes, you do, but you’re not focusing on the right things. You’re not being persistent enough in the areas you will succeed. You need to pick a master, girl, and stick with that.”

Then we discussed, at some length, what that means, which projects to go forward with, and which ones can (and probably should) take a back seat for now.

I can think of worse messages to get. At least with this response, I know exactly what to work on to take my Great Work to the next level.  I think I already knew what he was going to say, but sometimes we need that confirmation as an extra push in the right direction. I am thankful for Bathin’s candor on the matter, and his willingness to go over my work with me in a monumentally helpful way. It was almost like having a Daemonic business coach for the morning. 🙂

So today’s work: I invoked him first thing this morning, meditated on his sigil (did a visualization sigil launch), and then did the divination (above).  Then I went about my day, running errands and preparing for NovelRama tomorrow. I also got to chat with a friend and tell him about one of my projects, which I’m excited to tell someone about! But PATIENCE. I still have to build my models and make sure they work. The cardboard mock-ups were pretty effective. I am dying to try the real thing. I should have the blank models by Wednesday next week. Then begins the long arduous process of preparing them and working with them. They don’t call it magickal experimentation for nothing. Besides, I can’t write about them and show my readers the entire process until I know it works 100%.  Some magickal experiments are more exciting than others and this one is definitely exciting!  Sorry for the vagueness, but I know a lot of you reading this will love it as much as I do once I reveal it. Anticipation is part of the fun.

Anyhow – onto writing WORDS!

Did my chakra balancing and meditation. Decided to put off readings until Tuesday so I could focus on writing. All social media going dark as of tomorrow? ROFLOL

1,213 words written today.

I did not pull a tarot card.  I feel like I should have gotten more written on The Watch today, but maybe I’ll work on it tomorrow. All words count toward my 24K in four days. So really, I can work on whatever I want.
