Make a Magical Wish
On our spiritual journey through this life we have guides and teachers that open doorways for us, but we are the ones that have to get through the door. That's the real journey for us. When we try using force of will to try to get through the door, we are met with an equal and opposite force called resistance or second force. This is so by Universal Law and means that we cannot do and the more we try to do, the less we accomplish. Here's an example. There is something about yourself that you want to change. Maybe you gossip too much or eat too many sweets. So you decide on an aim of not talking or eating as much. But this usually leads to us talking or eating more actually because by Law of Attraction, that which we put our attention on is drawn to us. So if we are concentrating on NOT doing something that very thing is being attracted to us and manifests in our lives. It's a spiritual catch-22 that leaves us stuck. This is when a magical wish comes in handy. If we wish it with all our hearts then we do not create the resistance that wanting and attempting do. Wishing, holding the vision, creates an allowing force that pushes us through the door. It allows the Universe, angels, and other beings to work in our lives. When we wish, we are settling back within ourselves and feeling the desire we have, then just waiting. It's all about watching and seeing without forcing anything. When you were younger and wished upon a star, you were on the right track for manifestation.
Whether you are wanting to renew your interest in magic or just beginning on a magical path, the Everyday Magic Email course is a great way to spend the next year immersing yourself in magical knowledge and magical techniques to try out.

Want to learn magic and magical things like how to invite angels into your life to help you with everything from what foods to eat to finding the perfect parking space? How about having the Spirit of Owl help you access knowledge that may be currently hidden from you? Get all of this and more by signing up for our newsletter and getting our no-cost 10 Magical Quick Fixes ebook. This is a limited time offer so get it while the getting is good!

Here's a sample of one of the 10 techniques in the ebook that you can use to get a spiritual or energetic boost, clear away negative energies or to create sacred space for yourself.

The Sun Candle
Using a Sun candle and charging it with the charge verse is a great magical solution for when you wake up groggy from a poor night's sleep, or anytime you feel tired, depressed, overwhelmed by negative energies or just need a lift. Your Sun candle should be a pure yellow candle which is bright yellow with not too much orange in it. These are usually easy to find and many grocery stores have them in the religious candle section enclosed in glass jars. If you can get one that is unscented, that is best. If you have trouble finding one in your area, take a look in our school store. For this particular technique with the Sun candle, you will need wooden or paper matches (don't use a lighter) and you will need to know which direction is South. Then follow these directions:

1. Stand or sit in the South facing North and have the Sun candle in front of you

2. Light the candle with your wooden or paper matches.

3. Let the flame grow steady and tall which we call a good "working" flame.

4. Now charge the candle by holding your hands so that they are close to (not too close that you get burned though) and cupped around the flame.

5. Focus your attention on the candle and flame and say this verse out loud in a voice of command (strong, powerful voice):

"Child of Wonder,
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit,
And Protect My Aim!"

6. Now simply leave the candle burning for at least 30 minutes making sure it is on a plate or other protective surface and not a fire hazard.

Once you feel ready and at least 30 minutes have passed, blow the candle out. Take a few moments to see if you feel a difference in your energy level and quality of your energy. Most people report they feel lighter, more harmonious and more peaceful.

This is an example of the type of quick magic techniques that can help you in everyday life available to you in this limited time offer. So don't put it off, get to, sign up for the newsletter and get your no-cost copy of the 10 Magical Quick Fixes ebook.

Esoteric School Discovery Guide to Magic – Part VIII

How to Learn Magic

If you have started looking into the world of magic, you may be overwhelmed by all the different disciplines, traditions and types of magical practices that exist. So where do you begin? While looking around at magical topics you may have already discovered a discipline that has resonated with you or that you are attracted to. If so then great, you have an idea of where to start. If you haven't gotten that far then we invite you to explore our website and our blog that cover a variety of magical topics for ideas. One of the basics that is a good place to start to learn magic no matter what tradition or discipline you end up following is learning the four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth.

How to Learn Magic: The Four Elements
Everything in the Universe is made up of some combination of the four elements of Air, Water, Fire and Earth. If you understand this and know how to work with these four elements, you can understand and create anything you wish to. This is the place we start with our students who want to learn magic because when we say the four elements are what everything is made up of that also applies to magical powers and abilities. For example, if you are drawn to and interested in developing your clairvoyant or telepathic abilities then you will want to work with your water element. Water is the language of Spirit. Any magical study you decide to pursue will advance by having an understanding of the four elements and which to work with in your chosen path. The four elements also help you learn to listen to Spirit guidance, live a more creative and peaceful life, understand the driving forces of life and follow your birth vision.

How to Learn Magic: What Next?
After getting a good working knowledge of the four elements, we can use our hands and bodies to conduct these energies for a variety of magical topics including self-defense, healing, divination and more. Each element also has a tool associated with it and we can learn magical techniques using these tools. The tool for the Air element is the Wand, for Fire the Athame, for Water the Chalice and for Earth the Plate. Then there is the Firebowl that almost every spiritual, magical and religious system throughout history has used in some form or fashion. This tool also sometimes called a thurible, can be used for cleansing, purification, to help in meditation and divination. After mastering the four elements and how to use them with and without magic tools, there are many different magical pathways you can decide to follow and various magical techniques that you can explore to see which ones interest you. For example, divination is the art of accessing information that is not directly available to the normal five senses. There are a variety of magic techniques to use for divination according to what information you are seeking. The Tarot, pendulum, scrying, I-Ching, and Runes are a few examples of divination techniques. And then of course there is spellwork to move into in your magical studies. A magic spell is a magical operation that combines the four elements in a particular way with a specific intention and can also have factors programmed into it to produce a specific result over a period of time. Chants, litanies, prayers, sonics, voodoo dolls (simulacra magic) and directors and limiters are all spells. Prayers are also spells. Spells are energy matrices programmed to build momentum and overcome obstacles until the end goal is manifested.

Magic is a fascinating study that can change your life. It is important however to find a way to learn magic that will give you the skills and techniques, but also that teaches you how to use magic safely. For example, before you create a spell, you must also know how to work directors and limiters into it, understand basic magical operational laws and understand the terminology associated with spellwork. Otherwise your spell might work and reach the end result that you intended, but happen in a way that you did not intend to happen and can sometimes be disastrous. The Universe doesn't care what you intend, just what you actually do, so undertaking an operation without a good understanding of it can cause backlash to you. Magic is a precision science and altered procedures produce altered results. You can avoid this by studying under an experienced teacher. Our website gives you resources to get you started learning how to learn magic in a safe and effective way. From free articles to online courses and ebooks to magical materials and tools you need in our online store, we hope you find the offerings we provide at a place to get you started exploring the wonderful world of magic.
