Use Magick to Boost Energy

Here's a great magick tip to boost energy that you'll find along with other great magick tips in our Everyday Magic Email course. When you find yourself dragging out of bed in the morning and needing to boost energy, you can use your Sun Candle. Light your Sun Candle and charge it. As you charge the candle hold the intention that the Sun Candle will boost your energy. Keep it in the room with you while getting ready for the day or put it in a glass container so that you can carry it from room to room with you.

If you feel you need to boost energy even more, you can put your hands around the candle, near the flame, and pull in Sun Yellow energy from the candle, not the flame. Sun Yellow energy nourishes the spirit and provides energy. Don't think about how to pull the energy in through your hands and up your arms, just intend it. Energy from a candle is very radiative and flows outward easily. Pull for 15 or 30 seconds then stop and see how you feel. Be sure not to pull too much because some people have a tendency to convert Sun Yellow energy into Yellow Orange energy which is the energy of anxiety and nervousness.

You can use magick to boost energy. It's simple and effective and will get you moving in the morning in hardly anytime at all.

Getting Your Mind On Board Magically

To shamans, each person is a spirit with a mind and body. The mind and body are like magical tools for spirit to use. Just like other magical tools need to be keyed (programmed) or trained, the mind must be trained in order to be a helpful magical tool. We constantly take in thoughts, behaviors and responses from the environment which are not always aligned with our goals and aims. The untrained mind can throw magical monkey wrenches in the mix to keep us from achieving our goals.

Training Mind
Think about all the great ideas you come up with and make resolutions to do: lose 10 pounds, get that promotion at work, quit smoking... and the list goes on. You get off to a running start and then forget those promises to yourself or get distracted by a new list of priorities. This is a sign of mind taking over and that it is not trained to help you as a magical tool. So how do you go about training your mind? One way is through practicing segment intending.

Segment Intending
Segment intending is an exercise from Abraham Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com) that helps train your mind as a magical tool. Here's how it's done:
1. Pick a length of time for your "segment." It can be any length of time, but no more than an hour. Thirty minutes or an hour works well.

2. Decide exactly what time the segment will start and end.

3. Choose an aim for that segment. It could be a list of tasks, a state of being, or both. For instance, you might decide that you will strive to have a pleasant demeanor while you spend the next 30 minutes returning phone calls.

4. Once the time you chose to start your segment arrives, start on your chosen aim with no second thoughts. Put your attention solely on the tasks for that segment and nothing else.

5. If you get interrupted during your segment, you need to decide whether the interruption is important enough for you to stop your segment (for instance, if your boss calls you to come to his office). If the interruption is not important enough or can be delayed, keep going on your segment. If the interruption is important, make a conscious decision to stop your current segment and start a new one (one centered around the interruption).

Practice doing segments such as this all during the day. Each one is a training period for your mind. These segments will train your mind to assist you as a magical tool rather than dictating to you. The more you practice segment intending the more responsive mind will be to your needs as a spirit.

Is Magic Real? You'll See It When You Believe It

As we explain in our Kindle book, Learn How To Do Witchcraft, Rituals and Spells with Your Bare Hands, the saying, "You'll see it when you believe it" quoted by such masters as Wayne Dyer is so very true when it comes to finding out is magic real. Magic is all around us, but for magic to be "real" in your life, you have to be open to it. The doubting Thomas' must put aside their contempt and suspend their disbelief long enough to try it out for themselves. Only through direct experience will one become a believer and so it should be. We never try to prove to one of these doubters or the skeptical or answer the question is magic real. Instead we invite them to try out some beginning spells and magic rituals and prove it to themselves. Our Kindle Witchcraft Spell Books series is a good place to start.

Faith or Belief Versus Experience
If you look up the word faith in the dictionary you'll find:
1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another's ability

2. belief that is not based on proof (he had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact)

In the biblical sense, faith is "the general persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true" (dictionary.com). Basically, this means that faith is a belief that something is true whether or not there is proof. I think most people would agree with this dictionary interpretation. But for magical practitioners, faith is action. Magical practitioners have to have direct experience or have observed it for themselves to believe it is true. Until that happens, everything is still in the hypothesis stage.

So if "you'll see it when you believe it" and as a magical practitioner "you have to see it to believe it", what do you do to make these two statements work for you? Simple, you take action. Pick any beginner spells or magic rituals (you'll find plenty on our blog) and do one. In fact, do it daily for 40 days, keeping an open mind without placing judgment on it as to whether magic is real or not. During that 40 days, see for yourself what effect the spell or magic ritual has on your life. Ask the Universe for signs and guidance along the way and determine what is true for you and what is not. That will give you the data you need to determine whether something is true or worthy of your "faith".

Magical Payback
Whatever you pay into your magical practice pays you back... with interest! At the end of your 40 days, whether you decide the spell or magic ritual you have performed daily is worthy of your faith and belief or not, you will have paid into your magical practice... and your practice will eventually pay you back, regardless of whether you decide to have faith in that particular magical ritual or not. The Universe is ultimately fair and a great keeper of accounts. Magical acts are any acts of intention and are recorded in the Akashic records. Any magical acts you perform will pay you back, perhaps when you least expect it.

So what do you have to lose except maybe a little time over the next 40 days and a bit of skepticism? And just think, if there really is real magic, all you have to gain by exploring it for yourself and deciding to believe.

The Magic of Silence

If you continually find yourself surrounded and bombared by the noisy, hustle and bustle of everyday life, maybe you need a little magic of silence in your life. To be effective at any magical practice and to be in a mode to receive information from Spirit helpers and the Universe you have to be able to listen and make a connection from Spirit. With all the noise and rushing around trying to get through our daily to-do lists, we often forget to listen and shut down our ability to hear our inner voices of guidance.

Practicing the Magic of Outer Silence
Practicing inner and outer silence can increase and develop your ability to hear the Universe and its messages. Outer silence is usually easier initially for people to achieve. You can do this through exercises such as picking a segment of your day, maybe 2 hours, that you choose to be silent; in other words a time when you choose to not talk at all. If being at work or school prohibits your being silent for that long a period, then pick a time on the weekend or a day off. Try to avoid surrounding yourself with too much noise from other sources during this time also. For example, don't have a radio or TV on. You can still go about doing chores or just sit quietly, meditate or read an uplifting book. Maintaining silence gives you more of a chance to actively listen or watch for messages from the Universe.

Practicing the Magic of Inner Silence
If you absolutely cannot work the practice of outer silence into your day, you can work on inner silence instead on that day. This means quieting the internal mind chatter that we have so much of the time. As you go through your day take notice of the type of thoughts that go through your mind triggered by what you see and hear and how many of those thoughts you have. As you notice one of these thoughts popping up, begin to quiet the stream of thought by putting your attention on your breathing or a physical sensation such as your feet striking the ground as you walk. Anytime a thought comes up mechanically, put your attention back on a physical sensation. Consistent practice of this exercise will allow you to begin taking control of quieting your internal chatter quickly which opens space for you to listen to your inner voice of guidance. 

As you practice inner and outer silence, you will begin to notice that these two forms of silence influence each other. The more silent you become on the outside, the more silent you'll become on the inside and vice versa. When you let the magic of silence into your life, you allow Spirit to guide your life and open yourself to partnering with the Universe to bring all sorts of magic into your life. Find out other ways to bring more magic into your life with our free ebook 10 Magic Quick Fixes for Your Life.

Relationship Blues? Magical Elements Could be the Solution!

Did you know that there is a magical personality test as well? You can get the test by clicking the link BELOW.

Magical Elements Personality Test

This test tells which of the four magical elements--Air, Fire, Water, and Earth--dominate your personality. But here's the real kicker. Depending on your magical elemental personality and that of another person close to you, you may be destined to constantly have relationship problems unless you take the time to understand the specific needs communication styles of each type.

We will delve into each type later. For now, download test, score yourself, and enjoy! Many people end up with two magical elements being equally dominant, which is perfectly normal! Once you have found out about yourself, ask that special someone in your life (who gives you such relationship trouble) to take the test, too. Or take it for them if you like! Read future blogs to find out why you do or don't get along!

Double Booked Yourself? A Quick Way to Unwind Little Life Problems

If life is getting a bit crazy for you, a simple pendulum technique can help you clear life problems and even your own bothersome repetitive thoughts. This technique is one of the many presented as magic that works to help you in your daily life in our Psychic Development ebook. If you have never used a pendulum before or don't even have a pendulum, then don't add that to your list of life worries. Instead take a look at this article that gives you directions for making your own simple pendulum and this article that gives you some other information for beginning pendulum users.

Once you have a pendulum that you have either made yourself or obtained a pendulum and have cleaned it and done some training with it to insure you get accurate answers, you are ready to use it to help clear out the problem you are dealing with. Here's how:

1. Hold your pendulum in your dominant hand, letting it dangle while you visualize the problem you want to clear.

2. Ask your pendulum, "Can I, May I, Should I, clear this situation?" If you get a yes answer from your pendulum, then move forward. You can use an indicator plate with a circle that has yes on one side and no on the other to get this answer.

3. Begin swinging your pendulum in a counter clockwise direction, asking it to clear the situation. As you do this, "see" the situation resolving in your mind. Be very specific with your request and what you envision as to the situation being resolved.

4. Continue to focus on clearing the situation until your pendulum stops spinning in the counter clockwise direction. It will then either start moving along a vertical or horizontal axis, stop or start spinning clockwise. When it stops swinging on its own then the problem has been cleared.

Once a problem has been cleared you can of course always choose to bring it back if you really want to, but instead try trusting the power of your pendulum and your intent and release the problem from your consciousness. If you find it creeping back into your consciousness throughout the day, change your focus to something else.

You can use this same pendulum exercise to clear repetitive thoughts that you find yourself having. This is especially helpful in the case of negative thoughts which you want to clear out to avoid attracting those negative situations to you. Instead of visualizing a situation you want resolved just hold the repetitive thought in your mind and ask your pendulum to clear the thought from your life. After the process, you may still find the thought popping up in your mind occasionally, but it should appear far less frequently than before and eventually will disappear. Give both of these a try and see if you agree this is truly magic that works.
