Gestation - A Journal Entry

Be exalted O God above the nations;
Be exalted above the heavens
above the moon and the stars
which You have ordained:
Be Glorified above all.
When I consider the work of Your hands
who am I
that You are
mindful of me?
I search
day and night
and my troubles are always before me
for I am torn
two worlds:
the Celestial
and Chthonic
for my house
in Gemini.
Have mercy upon me, O God
and teach me Your ways
that I might know Your Truth.
For even now,
my soul is among the lions;
I lie among the sons of men.
But you, O Lord
have Ordained Strength
because of Your lovingkindness.
Reach down Your hand upon me
and still my mind
as you still the waves of the seas.
Clear a path for me
and guide me with Your eye
that I might know your ways
and walk upright in righteousness.
Teach me your ways, O God
that I might praise You.
Grant unto me
Your Holy Wisdom
that I might glorify You.
Praise the Lord among the nations
Praise Him all you His hosts:
Let everything
that has breath
Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord.

I am gestating.

In the Spring, I will begin a 6 month journey into a Holy Rite, about which I’m still unsure how much I should share. The Journey includes 6 months of rigorous prayers, recitations, fasting and seclusion from society.

I am currently and already in the process of preparing for the Rite, and I have found myself twiddling my thumbs, unsure of where to focus my energy in the meantime. I seek Truth but have lately found myself spinning in circles, waiting for Passover to come.

The Full Moon is tomorrow, after which most of my Magic will cease until the New Moon, but even then, Mercury will be in retrograde until the end of March, which puts further restrictions on my Magical practice. Presumably, after I finish the 6 month Rite, I will no longer be obligated to planetary correspondences, but in the meantime, I’m trying to follow everything by the book (by the book I mean, the protocols of Solomonic Magic).

I suppose I’m really just writing this entry for myself as I try and process how to proceed before April 20, though perhaps the abstracted concepts of waiting and gestation will resonate with you, Dear Reader, as well.

On a surface-conscious-level, I want everything to happen over night though I know deep within that mastery takes time and struggle. Sometimes, the very thought of knowing my Initiation will not happen over night brings me into a state of paralysis, where I just want to reach for my phone and give up any agency I currently have.

Pray for me, Reader that I might have mental clarity and focus in the days leading up to the Rite, and I too will pray for you that you also might find mental clarity and focus as you strive towards your goals.

Let us not throw up our hands & give up our agency,
for at the center of the spinning wheel
resides a stable spoke.

Behold, I am compelled.

Is Magic real?… Or is it spelt “Magick”?

I recently felt compelled by many alignments in my life that I have a certain gift for writing, so here I am. I have further felt compelled through astrological and otherwise correspondences that I ought to communicate about my current mystical pursuits through writing. So here I am. Voila! Abracadabra!

For my mystical backstory, just look at my Bio page.

So, anyway, is Magic real?

Okay, first and foremost, we must define our terms. What do I mean by Magic? Are you ready? Take a deep breath. I define Magic as: A system of mystical pursuits and methodologies that enable you to connect to other dimensions or spirit realms in order to enact change in the physical world.

At least, I think that’s what is.

I have a degree in philosophy from Columbia University, so rigor and analysis are crucial cornerstones in the way I seek Truth, or the Mystical, Divine, or are aliens real?

This whole magic thing is super new to me. I didn’t even really think magic was real, or if it was, it was something evil and not part of God’s plan. I was taught a very limited, repressed expression of the Divine, from which most of the mystical elements had been silenced.

I knew God was real, and I knew there was a lot more to It. After all, if “It” is God, then “It is” necessarily Vast, Mysterious, Complex, and Ultimately Beautiful. Other Dimensional. We all know other dimensions exist. We all know there is more to the world than what we see. Quantum mathematics tells us that.

Not that I know much about Quantum whatever, but my point is: We know there are other dimensions about which we know very little. Let’s call that Mystery, God.

Or something like like that. By Its Nature, It cannot be fully defined.

So anyway, after a series of mystical journeys (about which would be a novel in itself), always in pursuit of my “Destiny,” I recently had one encounter wherein I felt a clear calling from the Mystical Realm to pursue magic, and I’m not even joking: that it was my Destiny.

Can you imagine? My Destiny?

I mean, I’ve always felt compelled toward God/the Divine/Mystery and T/truth. I have always felt compelled toward this Higher Force, which could be defined in numerous ways and none would probably be enough. The Great Mystery, of which we are all a part.

So now this Force is compelling me towards Magic.

Yes, this is my testimony: I have been compelled by the Spirit.

At least I think I am?

It is my goal in writing this blog to share my mystical and magical experiences as this journey unfolds before me. I’m already bursting at the seems with information. Guys, I have so much mystical knowledge to share and still so much to learn. I suppose this will be a journal of sorts as I grow more and more adept in the technicalities of the magical system I feel compelled toward, of which there are many.

I’ll say this right now, though, even the small things I’ve done are working. I’m still learning all the correspondences and rituals, but I’m already getting signs, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve got my Holy guardian Angel by my side (whom I hope to meet one day!), and a book of Psalms I say every day while I vape.

But for now, I suppose this is what I feel compelled to say and which I hope my magic will show: that God is Real. Alive. Abounding in Power and Love.

Amen. Selah!
