Before I start talking about Magick , I would like to apologise to everyone who used to enjoy my posts .I haven’t been posting that much anymore because I had to take a break for summer as being a mother , a full-time artist and a teacher can take it’s toll .
So what is Magick? Magick to me is all about imagination. Magick is what you make it, how you want it .It helps you find your true destiny and shape your life and yourself as you want to be. Free from constraints of religious dogma or social dogma.
There are incredible authors out there who have been researching history and uncovering the stories behind some of the greatest scholars who researched alchemy, enochian ,chaos magic for over 20 years like Jason Louv just to mention one. Here is a link to an interview by this incredible wizard I really enjoyed.
We must admit that there has been a shift in consciousness the last years. At the wake of scandals like sexual attacks on children and vulnerable women by priests in the catholic church, the ongoing religious wars , Atomic wars, Global warming, Cancer, mass migration because of which thousands of lives are lost at sea, and all sorts horrors, we millennials are starting to question the role of faith and religion and everything else in our life.
But let’s face it? When haven’t people questioned faith and man’s role in the big cosmic universe? I feel that today, the age of space travel and bitcoin technology, our consciousness is shifting . The way mankind during the Renaissance tried to go back to reach God , to restore man’s grandeur before the fall of Adam, nowadays the younger generation is looking into spirituality and ancient wisdom in order to get away from the atrocities our present society is going trough. People are waking up to spirituality, are travelling and choosing to find a different kinds of answers to their need of being at one with the Universe. Nowadays the religious dogma of having to punish oneself and fit into the model presented doesn’t fit us anymore. We are looking into going before Religion came and took over the world and shaped the world as we know it today. We are looking into ancient wisdom, folkore, mythology and magic. We are doing it because we are tired and feel betrayed by the superpowers shaping every aspect of our lives and continuously letting us down.
So out of the collective we, there are some people like me who look into Magick.
Magick is ancient wisdom , it is folklore, it is the way our ancestors used to answer their spiritual questions about morality and being human. It’s the enchanted books we read as children, it is our dreams of all that we want to become.Magick is present in the chore of each and everyone of us. You are only as magical as you want to be.
There are different tools with which one can express his magick. Some choose tools like wands, magical rituals and sigils, others choose art. I am one of the latter.I choose to draw and paint my magical thoughts and express them in colour. The one below is part of a set of drawings I did as my son slept last year. It is about something I wish for. A soulmate with whom I can travel the realms of the imaginary and with whom I can be who I want to be. A physical kiss but in reality it is not. It is about a Cosmic connection of 2 people whose the body is a cultivated garden, ancient, the body as being full of wisdom as vast as the universe the body of a soul that has traveled the universe at night that blossoms with love for every creature on earth.
