thumbs up for magick!

Who is IZABAEL?

Izabael is both a demon, and a real life gal, so sometimes there is a certain amount of confusion over the two.

Originally I discovered the demon/djinn Izabael about fifteen years ago. This spirit came to me in my magickal and psychedelic workings and made it clear she was powerful, helpful, and wanted to work […]

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 […]

Black or White Magick: Which is more powerful?

 

Black magick worries a lot of people so I often get asked about a certain spell or ritual: Is this black magick or white magick? Will it backfire? Is it more powerful than white magick?

Without getting in a long article on what black and white magick is (and how ultimately there is only […]

What is the ultimate goal of magick?

“What is the ultimate goal of magick?”

Every magician will have to formulate the answer to that for themselves.

For me, the goal of magick is to increase the joy and pleasure of my life, while helping the world and those around me as much as possible.

What’s the difference between a magick ritual and magick spell?

A spell is a set of specifically chosen actions (movements, gestures) , words ( chants, invocations, prayers, etc), and other sensual stimuli (incense, lighting, circles, pentagrams, etc.) designed to incite a reaction in the subconscious mind to produce a desired result. A ritual is the same thing! So are spells and rituals identical? Not necessarily, […]

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 […]

The Inverted Pentagram

The Inverted Pentagram

The most notorious star in all of magick is the inverted pentagram. Does it not mean a devil’s head? Is it not evil?

Thanks to Eliphaz Levi,[1] it does indeed symbolize a goat’s head to many magicians, but no, it is generally not considered an evil symbol by those […]

What can I do with Sex Magick?

Sex magick is distinct from love magick. Love magick (including love spells and love potions) is usually above getting a lover, mate, or spouse. (Everything You Want To Know About Magick covers Love Magick in Chapter 7, including how to create powerful love magick talismans.) Sex magick, on the other hand, is utilizing sexual energy […]

What is Black Magick?

“Black magic”, or more appropriately “black magick”, fascinates new students to the occult as no other type of magick can. However just what “black magick” is seems generally mysterious and vague. It’s not always easy to find two magicians or occultists who agree on the exact same definition. A common definition of black magick is […]

What is the Goetia?

Beleth

The Goetia is by far the most popular “phonebook” of demons. It contains a mixed bag of spirits, of various demeanors, for goals as various as learning musical instruments, finding wealth, gaining love, or conquering in war.

 

The Goetia is part of a longer work called The Lesser Key of Solomon, […]
