Fantastic day at the Alchemical conference in Glastonbury yesturday.

Heard speakers talking about technical and practical Alchemy. Also a wonderful talk on the aspects of Hekate and Hermes that we dont here much of those involved in the green work. I gave a talk about Plant intelligence which I will expand on in the South Wales occult conference.

Overall a delightful and informative day with lots to think about. Make sure you mark this in your diary for next year.

Now I am off to do some Weeding as my garden has decided that its Go go Grow

Magic is like a muscle, it needs to be excercised. If you don't practise magic...... not talking about magic, that doesnt count..... practise means just that; getting off your bum at stupid o'clock in the morning to do the magical thing is not unlike going to the gym before work to lift the heavy thing.

The heavy thing you are lifting in magic is the way that you allow your magic to develop and grow.

Reading is great, it educates and opens the mind but nothing beats getting your magical muscles moving.

So the next question is what do we use our magic for?

Well honestly I think you can use it for whatever you deam fit.

No magical moralising here. If you want to do do the work and are willing to take the consequences of that work (note I dont say Karma or Rede both of those things in my opinion are not applicable or helpful in the world of magical practise)

then carry on and get it done.

How do we do the magic

Well find a system that works for you and use it. Thats the jiste of it.

you can use

Astrological magic - appealing to the energies or dieties of the planets

Talismanic magic - the magic of attraction through symbol and sigil

Candle magic - fire magic which releases the energy of your spell into the world

Poppetts, witchbottles, Kameas, spirits, elementals and ancestors the list goes on an on.

What you need?

You, your belief in magic and how it works.

Possibly the help of your patron deity

But mostly its the act of doing it itself that starts the magic rolling.

What is stopping you?

Moralising millions

Thou shalt not?

A worry that your magic will work (bit spoiler here IT WILL)

A lack of actual belief in the magic of the universe.

A fear of looking silly

Failure -

Moralising millions - Ignore them if they dont want to live in a magical world then thats their call. I want to live in a universe of Joy and magic and use my own moral compass not that found in a book or in anothers mind.

Thou Shalt Not? - This is a control mechanism placed upon us by Patriachy and book religions.

Magic will work - Yes it does every time but sometimes not in the way you originally planned - There needs to be a bit of Chaos in the world doesnt there.

A lack of beliefe in magic - This is common amongst actual magical practitioners belief it or not - they like the sound of magic but in the back of their minds is the belief that its not real and all made up in their head - Well so what do it anyway

A fear of looking silly - Dear god Grow up

Failure - We all fail and we get up and try again. Go on do it

Moral of the story

Get out there and work magic for anything and everything you need.

The universe is a plasticine and malleable thing. Shape it to what you want and make it GLORIUS

Covid was not kind to anyone. It made us scared and being frightened is not something that we in the western world are used to. We have small scares, not being able to cope, anxiety and other small things that normally we can deal with but this was a BIG scare. People were dyng, people were ill and we all shut ourselves away to make sure that we were safe.

But now it seems its time to reemerge. But how to we want to come back into the world

I find that the character of the world has sadly not changed but in that there is hope.

Most people I know are living smaller, taking joy in the smaller things and serving their community as much as they can.

I have just Organised the Welsh Occult Conference in Welshpool and one of the overiding themes from all of the speakers was the theme of Service.

I take great Joy in that and hope that we can move from the capitalist, self focused culture that we currently have to a more community focused, world and environmentally focussed community.

Lets walk lightly with each other because no one actually knows what another person is feeling or coping with.

Lets join forces more often instead of focussing on our differences lets look at our strengths and work together to acheive something wonderful.

Lets push people to rise up and shine, instead of leaning on them when the try to rise and taking joy in their failure.

Lets be the community we want

Now is the time for action

Now is the time for community.

Look at the joy on the faces in the photo just from being Together.

More of that please
