Magic for When It Is All Too Bloody Much!

It is all too bloody much!

That came in an email the other day from someone who had been hit with calamity after calamity ... everything from fender-benders to sick kids to pay cuts at work.

It was just too much and this person wanted to know what he could do, magically, about his situation. It's a good question, and he's not the only one asking it.

Magical Solutions When Life is Too Bloody Much
This is an important topic to address because a lot of people often find life a little too hard to bear. Many people are waking each day to minor calamities, from tooth abscesses to broken computers to relationships that are falling apart. It's like life as we know it is falling part.

So what do we do magically to alleviate this problem? After all, when life as we know it falls apart, it's not a good thing. Luckily, we can take magical steps towards a happier future.

Three Magical Steps when Life is Falling Apart
I like to keep things simple in magic because life is complicated enough. There's no point in making your magical practice complicated as well, right? So here are three magical steps you can take if your life is, well, falling apart at the seams.

1. Don't panic. (duh!)
2. Choose one very, very simple magic ritual you like.
3. Become a slave to the magic ritual.

So let me explain. These three steps really work, and I've deliberately made them sort of inflammatory to make a point. So bear with me. Let's take it one step at a time.

1. Don't Panic
The "Well, duh!" factor is pretty high on this step, but is has to be said. After all, what's the first thing we are programmed to do when a calamity occurs in our lives? PANIC! Yup, sheer unadulterated panic. So learning how NOT to panic is pretty important. By Law of Attraction, panic attracts more things to panic about. So learn to back off the panic a hair or two. Go with, say, annoyance or light cursing to start with. You probably can't go from panic to happy, but you can take a step back from panic and satisfy yourself with a few curse words. So practice, practice, practice not panicking. This is important. Consider it a crucial part of your magical training. You have to master this step, at least somewhat, before moving on to the next step.

2. Choose One Very, Very Simple Magical Ritual You Like
This step is pretty logical. Magical rituals are useful because they create magical effects in your life. The more your life if falling apart, the more magic you need in your life. So you'll need a magic ritual you can use when something calamitous happens in your life. So pick a magic ritual, any ritual, that you like and that is simple. Remember, when you are focused on not panicking, you won't have a lot of brainpower left to do a complicated magic ritual.

Some magic rituals I like include the Navajo Beauty Way Exit Ritual, the Sun Candle, and hiring angels. You can read about all of those here:

Navajo Beauty Way
Sun Candle
Hiring Angels

Or make up your own ritual. You can also get a bunch of simple magic rituals in our Daily Rituals ebook, which contains tons of rituals and teaches you how to create your own. In any case, pick a ritual, learn it well, and keep it handy.

Daily Rituals Ebook

3. Become a Slave to the Magic Ritual
This sounds kind of extreme, but it's actually a very common principle in many esoteric and tribal practices. The gist of it is this: there can only be one "most important" thing in your life, and that thing will either be intentional magic or it will an accidental life event. In many magical traditions, students are instructed to choose an aim (or ritual) and to make that aim their god in life. Why? Because the aim or ritual is intentional, which means it creates a very precise and pre-determined effect. A wanted effect.

This effect acts as an antidote against all the "accidents" that otherwise occur in life: the fender-benders, the sick kids, the reduced paycheck, and other calamities. So being a slave to your chosen magical ritual simply means putting more attention on that ritual than on the current calamity.

Here's how it would work. Suppose you choose the magic ritual of hiring an angel. Now suppose you get into a fender bender. Step 1: don't panic--just mutter a couple curse words under your breath. Step 2: Whip out your magic ritual. Step 3: If possible, hire an angel to fix this mess (before you even get out of the car to deal with the other driver).

Pretty simple, right? By putting your magic ritual ahead acts on the physical plane, you attract more magic and intention, and fewer accidents. I'm assuming, of course, that the fender bender is minor and you have 15 seconds to hire an angel before hopping out of the car. If not, use common sense and take care of business first and hire an angel later. Just remember to put your emphasis on the idea that magic is more important than panicking about the life situation.

This simple three-step magical process works really well during turbulent times. Even if you are not going through “turbulent times” right now, practicing these steps now can help you prepare for when they do come. Really. Magic works, it really does.

Can Magic Spells Really Help with Your Angry Boss?

Yes. Absolutely. Without a doubt!

What's more, ensuring that your sacred space is NOT invaded by the negative energy of your angry boss is both your right and, if you are a magical practitioner, almost an obligation. This falls under the rules of protection magic.

Here's the basic rule of protection magic:

"In cases of direct and violent personal harm you are entitled to defend yourself by any means available provided you did nothing to encourage or provoke the attack."

If you are not sure what this all means, read the definitive breakdown of this rule in the full blog post HERE.

Magic Spells and Your Angry Boss
So now you know that you have the right to ensure your sacred space against the negative energy of your boss, given the rule above. If your boss is perpetually angry, you would be well advised to use protection magic to prevent your boss' angry energy from affecting you.

Can you really do this with protection magic? Absolutely. Just read this story from Julie S., who took our Magical Self Defense Home Study Course.

"For the last five years I have worked under a chronically angry boss. He was angry when he was tired, cranky when we were behind schedule, ambitiously nervous when we had won a contract... basically a bundle of nerves, mostly negative! I have always been a "Yes" person, and found myself eventually becoming a nervous wreck working under his style of management. When my nerves got wound so tight that I began having digestive issues and constant headaches, I decided that it was time to do something different."

"I was afraid to confront my boss because I had seen my co-workers do that. My boss always got angrier, with a tendency to rant. I knew that the direct approach was not for me. Luckily, I discussed this problem with my friend over drinks one evening. She suggested some protection magic. Magic?!? I was incredulous. Surely not! But my friend assured me that she had used such an approach with an angry relative and had excellent results. Doubtful, I nevertheless ordered the Self Defense Course she recommended."

"After reading up on the method of pulling Red-Orange energy (for anger) and Yellow-Orange energy (for nervousness or anxiety) from another person, I decided to give it a try. The next time my boss stormed into my office with a list of demands, I eased myself over to a light switch, which acted (according to the course) as a ground for any energy I pulled from my boss. The course said that an angry person is literally brimming over with Red-Orange energy, and that if that energy is grounded out, the person cannot remain angry. Having practiced this technique at home, I casually partly extended my left hand and began pulling Red-Orange energy (following the instructions from the course). I flowed that energy across my shoulders, down my right arm, and into the light switch (on which I casually rested my right hand). I kept flowing for about five minutes. I was so concentrated on my task that I barely took in what my boss was yelling about. After three minutes, I wondered if I was accomplishing anything. After five minutes, my boss abruptly stopped in mid-rant, looked confused, and turned on his heel to leave the room. Wow."

"I repeated the same technique with my boss about six more times. The course noted that this protection magic ritual needed to be repeated multiple times until the person stopped being angry in my presence. After I did this magic ritual seven times over the course of about 10 days, I noticed that my boss stopped charging into my office. He stopped yelling at me so much in meetings. He stopped, in fact, acting anything but subdued in my presence. I was amazed, yet didn't fully trust that the effects would last. Well, it's been nine months now, and my boss still hasn't gone crazy angry on me. He doesn't even seem to get anxious or nervous about deadlines anymore, at least not around me. I am flabbergasted that this actually works. I am also very pleased. Thank you for teaching me this wonderful technique to preserve my sacred space. Thank you also for reassuring me that this kind of magic is not only all right by the Universe, but also a kind of obligation. I will never again let someone violate the peace of my sacred space with their angry energy!"

The Proof of Protection Magic is in the Pudding
Well, there you have it... the pudding, so to speak, of protection magic. Does it work? For Julie it does. Does it work for everyone? As long as you follow the rules of Self Defense and use the techniques as given, yes. Does it take practice? For most people, probably. And, as Julie can attest to, this particular protection ritual can require repetition with a repeat offender like a persistently angry boss. It does work, though, and at the end of the day, that's what matters when it comes to protection magic!

Good Magic Tips for Getting Answers from the Universe

Getting answers from the Universe is a good way to make sure we are on the right path or that what we are doing magically is not going to interfere with something we don't have knowledge of. It is also a good way to get guidance for issues we are facing in our lives. Many people are not sure how to go about getting answers from the universe. Here are some good magic tips on getting answers from the Universe to your questions.

Magic Tip #1: Conscious Choice
This is a good magic tip to gather and maintain force. The gathering and maintaining of force, the energy that enables us to transform thoughts and ideas into physical things we can touch and feel, is one of the easiest ways to manifest. When we exert this type of magical act of power in our lives, we are more in tune with the Universe and open to its help in creating our manifestations. The Conscious Choice exercise can help us achieve this state. Doing this exercise for 40 consecutive days is key. If you miss a day, then you will need to start over at day 1, which is OK. It's the doing not the finishing of it that makes the change. Doing the exercise makes every action we take exponentially more powerful and effective than without the exercise. More importantly, the exercise helps us avoid the need for willpower, which can carry us only so far. You will find the force you gather with it to be powerful, flexible, and effortless. In fact, this force is the essence of miracles, in which events happen seemingly outside the bounds of reason.

Here's how to do the Conscious Choice exercise:
1. Make a conscious choice everyday – at any time of the day.
2. Start with trivial decisions, such as what to eat for breakfast, whether to watch TV or read a book, or what color socks to wear.
3. Say to yourself, either aloud or silently, "I will now make a conscious choice."
4. Next, ask yourself the choice question, such as, "Do I choose to watch TV or read a book?" You can also make the question broader, such as, "What do I choose to do right now?"
5. The first answer you "hear" internally (or sometimes externally from a passing person) is what you must follow. You may not, in this exercise, avoid doing the option you have consciously chosen. This is the reason for making trivial choices at first.
6. Make and follow your conscious choice each day for 40 days.

Magic Tip #2: Asking for a Sign
This is a good magic tip to use when you are starting to doubt whether or not your manifestation is taking shape. Feelings of anxiousness and doubt can interrupt magical procedures. When in doubt, getting answers from the Universe in the form of asking for a sign can relieve the doubts and negative emotions that are pushing on your magical creation.
Say to the Universe, "Please show me a positive sign today that I can easily understand that shows me my manifestation is coming to me." It's that simple.
Then watch for your sign. It may be in a conversation you overhear, a symbol that has special meaning to you showing up, something you read, a song you hear or a multitude of other ways. You will need to be aware and watching for the sign. If at the end of the day, you have not recognized the sign, ask again. Ask this time to be shown a sign that is clearer to you. The Universe will always deliver the sign, we just sometimes miss it. It's OK to ask for something more obvious.

Magic Tip #3: Asking Owl
The owl totem is a good one to work with in getting answers from the Universe. Owl medicine is associated with clairvoyance, astral projection and magic. Owl sits in the east which is the place of illumination and can see things that others cannot.

To work with Owl:
1. Say aloud or in your mind, "Spirit of Owl, I request your help."
2. Wait a few moments until you feel the presence of Owl (no more than a few seconds).
3. State your request. For instance, if you need help seeing why you keep having negative love relationships, you might say, "Owl, please come with me today and show me what is causing these negative relationships in my life. Please show me in a way that I can clearly understand. Thank you in advance for your help." Appreciation is very important to this process.
4. Keep an open mind to what Owl will show you. Owl will ride with you on your shoulder, whispering in your ear, giving you knowing and understanding where before you had only blindness and confusion. Owl may bring up old memories, send you a phrase from the mouth of a stranger or bring a chance meeting with another person. Owl will use any and every device to help you see.
If at the end of the stated period of time, a day in the above example, you still don't understand what Owl is showing you, ask again the next day. Each day Owl will make it more obvious to you. Each time you gain a new insight or understanding, thank Owl for the help. Remember that Owl penetrates secrets and veils, and can show you anything you wish to know. All you have to do is ask!

Take a Magical Power Walk

I'm sure you've heard of, seen or do power walking to keep fit or lose weight. But have you heard of a magical power walk to keep spiritually fit? This is just one of the many exercises and tips you'll find in our first Kindle book in the Witchcraft Spell Book series called LEARN HOW TO DO WITCHCRAFT RITUALS AND SPELLS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS.

Litany Versus. Chant
This magical power walk is really a litany and is part of the Navajo Beauty Way. Many people confuse litanies and chants, but they are not the same. Basically a chant creates a magical effect in the environment. A litany is a type of chant that affects the person saying the litany. This Walking Litany creates a stable datum or anchor point for whoever is saying it.

How the Walking Litany Works
When you do the Walking Litany, you are using a continuous spell that affects yourself. It puts up a temporary shield or omnil around you. Magical effects from it can vary according to the words used. In our example for this article, we will be looking at the magical effect of gaining personal power and/or ridding yourself of negative energies that are draining. According to the Law of Attraction, when you are affected or changed, so is your life. In other words, "The level of your being attracts the level of your life". The Walking Litany can help you change the level of your being which in turn changes your life.

Doing the Walking Litany as Power Walk
1. Start by taking a look at your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual condition. This is necessary for you to compare results after performing the litany and note changes created by it.

2. Walk for at least 2 city blocks. You can walk a further distance, but not less than 2 city blocks. It doesn't matter where you walk as long as you walk enough distance. You could be in a city, your neighborhood, a park, wooded trail, or even just around your house. Many people find it enjoyable to walk in a nature type of environment, but it isn't necessary.

3. As you walk, say this litany out loud and in rhythm with your footsteps. Use a strong voice of command.

4. The litany is:
With power around me, I walk in the world.
With power within me, I walk in the world.
This one carries power.
This one walks in power.
5. Keep saying the litany over and over throughout your entire walk.

6. At the end of the walk, take time to again notice your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual state. Ask yourself:
  • What is different?
  • What has changed?
  • What is no longer present?
  • What is new?
The Walking Litany can be used as a daily ritual or just anytime you feel the need to recharge your personal power or climb out of a negative hole into a more positive state. Now that you know the way to walk yourself down the path towards a more magical life, give it a try and go take a walk.

How Does Magic Speak to You?

One of the things I love most about magic is the many and varied ways it shows up in our lives. Many times when I ask for magical help from powers and beings, I am surprised at the ways it shows up in my life.

I also realize that many people miss the signs of magic in their lives because they don't know what to look for. In other words, magic is constantly sending messages to us, but we often overlook these signs and symbols.

To remind myself of these signs and symbols, as well as to help others who are looking for help from magic, I've compiled a list of the various ways magic has come into my life over the years.

This is just a short excerpt, and I hope this helps to open your senses to the many ways magic is speaking to you.

Some of the Ways Magic Speaks to Me
  1. A sentence in a book that I opened to a random page
  2. A check in the mail
  3. A conversation I overheard between two strangers
  4. A raven flying overhead, squawking a message to me
  5. The moral of a movie coinciding with a request for magical help
  6. A business phone call from a stranger, who turns out to be reading the same spiritual book as me
  7. Life-threatening surgery that forever changed my perspective on life
  8. Watching the amazing transformation in a child's behavior in 10 days
  9. A long-time friend leaving my life, opening a new space for ...?
  10. A dream just before awakening
  11. Runes cast at just the right time, showing me the way
  12. Meeting a group of magical practitioners at a mountain-side rest stop, who are meditating in the "cone of silence"
  13. Seeking and finding the Gurdjieff Work
  14. Taking one dose of a flower remedy made from the magical datura plant 
  15. Feeling the brush of angel wings while at a rest stop after an extremely long drive
  16. The reincarnation of my dog, Tether, who lived two lifetimes with me
  17. A nasty note from an anonymous person saying, "Learn how to park, idiot!"
  18. The planting and cultivation of my garden each year
  19. A call out of the blue from a long-lost friend
  20. Finding exactly what I want in a thrift store
  21. Getting what I want 
  22. Not getting what I want
  23. Realizing that a negative influence in my life was gone ... and that I hadn't even noticed its absence for months
  24. Rain arriving on a parched summer day
  25. A fender-bender that led to a successful business relationship
  26. Sitting with a wish for the longing to cease ... and having it cease
  27. Feeling the joy of not expressing dislike
  28. A misdirected email in my inbox, telling me just what I need to know
  29. Feeling lonely and realizing I asked for sacred space
  30. Having a conversation in which no one understood a word I said
  31. A magical ride on a huge white mule named H.B. (short for HoneyBun) through enchanting Zion National Park

Many of these magical messages have meaning only for me and probably don't make sense to you. That's the whole point of this list. Magic always speaks to us in very personal ways -- ways that only make sense to us and have no meaning for anyone else.

As this list also demonstrates, magic sometimes speaks to us through contrast -- through events that we would normally perceive as negative. Our job, as magicians, is to question events that appear negative on the surface, and see whether the event answers some request we have made for magical help. One question to ask is, "What did I get from this event? What did I give up or give away?"

A Magical Challenge
I challenge you to make your own list of events through which magic speaks to you. You may have to dig a little to find these events, but trust me, the process will definitely be educational. Look through past events and see whether you can uncover magical messages or answers to prayer requests.

In the coming days, become more aware of your environment. If a raven passes overhead and squawks, look up the magical message that the raven carries in the Medicine Cards. If you are standing behind an exceptionally rude person at the grocery store checkout, see how the event might relate to the magic you are doing in your life. If nothing is happening in your life, ask yourself the magical meaning of such silence. Most of all, enjoy. That's what magic is for!
