How to Reap the Benefits of a Daily Magical Practice

Having a daily magical practice can pay off in big ways. When you develop consistency in your magic you reap the benefits in your daily life by building magical force inside yourself to have available when you want to do an act of magic. Daily rituals are a good way to add consistency into your practice, especially ones that connect you to the Universe, with thanks before and after. These types of daily rituals help you build a working relationship with the Universe so that when you ask for help with a magical act, it is available to you. If you need help finding or creating daily rituals, our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook is a great resource.

Magical Acts
Since any act of intention is a magical act, another way to bring consistency into your magical practice is by using the Consistency Exercise. With this magic exercise you choose a very simple intentional act to do every day at the same time and consciously do it. This exercise helps increase the level and quality of your connection to the higher, brings you back to present time, invites magic in to be a part of your everyday life, helps you build inner force, gets you more comfortable with practicing your magical skills in public and helps in changing your habitual thought patterns. For most people there is a high level of energy and excitement when initially setting a goal or embarking on a new goal, but this energy level dwindles as we get tied up with other things. Introducing consistency into your life can help keep that energy level up to help you make life changes. It can take 40 days to make a change which is why doing the Consistency Exercise is a good tool for giving you practice at developing skills to create change in your life as well as the opportunity to make magic an integral part of your life.

The Consistency Exercise
The first step for this magical exercise is to choose a simple act and we do mean SIMPLE. You could choose to make a mark on a piece of paper, touch your nose with your right thumb, snap your finger, scratch your ear, or any other really simple act that you can easily do where ever you are. Then you will choose a time to do this act each and every day. Consider your time carefully. For example, don't pick a time when you know you are at your very busiest part of the day. If you have kids to get off to school, pick a time after they are out the door. If you usually rush around getting ready for work in the mornings, don't pick that time of day, wait and choose a time you normally take a break at work. Pick a time that will not be a set-up for failure and that you will be more likely to remember to perform your act. You can also feel free to use notes to yourself or the alarm on your cell phone to remind yourself to do your act. That's not "cheating" as this is not an exercise in memory, just in developing consistency. Sounds simple so far, right? Well here's the catch. You must do this exercise of performing the intentional act you have chosen at the time you have chosen every day for 40 days in a row. If you miss a day, you must start over at day one. This can be frustrating for many, especially if you get to day 35 and then miss a day causing you start over at day 1, but stick with it and you will reap the benefits of finding acts of power take less effort, Law of Attraction kicks in more often for you and life in general just flows a bit better. This is because you are inviting magic into your life on a daily basis and increasing your magical force. Don't beat yourself up when you miss a day either. It's all a process and following the path has its own benefits no matter how long it takes to achieve the end goal. It is doing the exercise that is important, not the accomplishment of getting to the 40 days.

Now that you see all the benefits of developing a consistent magical practice, here's how to do the Consistency Exercise.

1. Choose your very simple act.

2. Pick the time of day that you will do your act every day.

3. When the time you have chosen comes, do the simple act. Do it every day at the same time for 40 days in a row.

4. If you miss a day during your 40 days, which you almost certainly will, you must begin your 40 days over at day 1. Even if you are at day 39 and miss the next day, you start over at 1.

5. Remind yourself the important thing is to do the exercise, not accomplish the goal, so do not berate yourself when you end up missing a day and have to start over. Think of it as just seeing your favorite movie again or learn to laugh about missing that day with a big "Oops!".
