thumbs up for magick!

On the difficulty level of high magick rituals

A common concern I hear regarding high magick spells is that they are too complicated. This is a valid concern, but let’s address this directly and clear up some misconceptions regarding an effective high magick ritual.

High magick does seem to get quite comlicated with some of their rituals, and when you see things like […]

Who is the most dangerous demon?

For every occultist you ask you will undoubtedly get a different answer. Confining ourselves to just the Goetia, for simplicity’s sake, I would put for Glasya-Labolas as a particularly insidious character. While Andras and Andromalius and the more ferocious of the Kings, seem clearly dangerous in their descriptions, one can come well prepared. However, the […]

The Black Magick Book

What exactly is real occult magick? Is it magick safe for me to perform? What is black magick? What are demons and angels? How do I cast love spells? How can a make wealth/money talisman? How do I conjure or invoke demons or djinn? What is the difference between magic spells and magick […]

Aleister Crowley's Magick Books

Crowley is the lynch-pin of modern of occultism and his books are lucid and well-written as whole, but for a new student Crowley can be daunting to say the least. Where does one even start? His classic of modern occultism, Magick Book 4, is not for the squeamish. It’s detailed, symbolic, and if you were […]

About the author Shawn Martin Scanlon

I have been practicing and teaching magick for over twenty years. In that time, I’ve learned what works and what is complete bullshit in the world of magick (the latter accounts for far more than the former!) This book is for anyone who wants to learn about REAL magick, and wants to make REAL changes […]

Is your book Thelemic?

Everything You Want To Know About Magick is not meant to be specifically Thelemic, but Thelema is non-dogmatic, meaning you can take or leave what you want from it. There is no strict formal code, other than to enjoy life the most you possibly can.

I quote from the Book of the Law, and reference […]

Sacred Space: The Circle

by brouhaha

There are many reasons that a clear space–drawn with a real or imaginary circle, is part and parcel of all types of magick. People will tell you it’s for your own protection. Sure, that’s true enough, but there is much more than that–even when working with energies that are completely harmless, you […]

The Seven Traditional Planets of Magick

The seven traditional “planets” of magick are the five planets visible without a telescope plus the Sun and Moon. The way the planets are used in this book has little to do with astrology or predicting fortunes. It also has nothing to do with astronomy so traditional astronomers will just have to forgive the convention […]

What is better? High Magick or Wicca?

This, of course, is a trick question. High magick is not better than Wicca, nor is Wicca better than high magick. I’ve always found the categorization of magick into “low” and “high” to be counter-intuitive in practice. Low magick, witchcraft, Paganism, etc. is supposed to be more in touch with nature, using more natural items […]

What can I do with magick?

Magick can be used for any earthly goal or purpose such as to land a more lucrative career, marry a soul mate, or even just to help find a lost or stolen object. Magick is also about becoming more spiritual, i.e. being in tune with your own deepest goals and desires.

Is your your magick book difficult to read and practice? Or is it dumbed down?

Neither! I’ve tried to make the difficult and erudite subject of magick EASY for you to learn and practice without losing any of the nuance and details of real magick. While there are simple and clear rituals and meditations to change every aspect of your life, there is no dumbing down here. Have I simplified […]

How do I raise magickal energy?

There are endless ways to raise a variety of magickal energies, and you already work with magickal energy when you perform the Equilibrating Ritual of the Pentagram (or the LBRP and other variants).

Another powerful method of stirring up magickal energy, specifically that of your chakras, is called the Middle Pillar Ritual. With it you […]

What are chakkras?

 

The chakras are energy centers running up and down the center of our bodies. The word itself comes from the Sanskrit “wheel” or “turning.”

The chakras can be “worked.” This means through breath-control and visualization they can become more enlivened with magickal energy.
