Doing Magick Consciously

Magick should be done consciously.

Most people do magick unconsciously. Visualizations or rituals tell the unconscious mind what to do and get the conscious mind out of the way. A.O. Spare’s runes, Golden Dawn rituals, energy working meditations, etc.

It’s great to see people doing magick. But unconscious magick is limited.

Doing magick consciously lets you see how magick works. Not the correspondences that ritual mages use, not the “belief is the tool” that chaos mages use, but the real mechanics underneath it all.

Seeing those mechanics lets you push the boundaries of magick.

I started conscious magick for curiosity. To understand what was happening. I’ve kept with it because focusing on the fundamentals is the fastest way to learn.
