I was asked by someone why magic he was doing for himself was less effective. He told me that that until recently the magic done for himself had worked fine, but that then suddenly became less effective. He wondered if it was because he had put a shield up or if the magic was less effective because it as an attempt to avoid self sabotage. Finally he asked what could be done when your magic seemed less effective.

I don't know the specifics of what he was trying to do with his magical work, but some thoughts did come to mind, based on my own experiences and helping other people diagnose issues they are having with their magical practice. I find that when a person isn't getting a result or their magic is less effective, its usually because they are self-sabotaging in some way. They may not really want what they think they want. Or they may not feel they are worthy of what they want. Additionally there may be some internal resistance because what they want goes against some moral or ethical code.

In such cases, what this really means is that the person hasn't spent adequate time defining their result and understanding what that result and the consequences are. Yet on some level they know what they want isn't right and so as a result they self-sabotage to avoid getting the result or they get the result and then it goes away shortly after.

The other day on the Magical Experiments Facebook page one of my commenters asked whether or not magic could help with executive dysfunction. I asked her to explain what executive dysfunction was because I’d never heard of the term before, and she explained the following,

“Executive dysfunction is a term for the range of cognitive, emotional and behavioural difficulties which often occur after injury to the frontal lobes of the brain. Impairment of executive functions is common after acquired brain injury and has a profound effect on many aspects of everyday life.”

“It is often associated with ADHD and other similar disorders. It is basically a clinical form of struggling to initiate any tasks, even every day ones. It’s a bit like putting the key into your car’s ignition and turning it, hearing the engine struggle to start again and again. Even if you really, really want to, you just can’t get yourself to initiate anything.”

Reading this made me think of my own struggles with bipolar depression. I don’t know if bipolar depression would fall under the umbrella of executive dysfunction, but I do know that when I had it, there were times I struggled to get anything done. At the same time I didn’t want to rely on medicine, because of the side effects. So I struggled through my depressive and manic episodes.

The other day on the Magical Experiments Facebook page, a commenter summed up his challenge with magic by sharing, "I'm trying to find an intellectual understanding along with a spiritual understanding of it without losing myself to it."

I think this is a challenge many people experience on their journey with magic as a spiritual practice. We can try to define magic as a set of practical techniques or describe it as a way to exercise our will, but at a certain point, in my experience, you move beyond such definitions when you recognize that magic moves and shapes the practitioner as much as the practitioner seeks to move and shape it.

The very nature of a mystery tradition is one where the practitioner surrenders to the mystery and allows the mystery to speak through them. And yes it can be an awesome experience, but it also a terrifying experience because in that moment you begin to also realize that to experience the mystery you necessarily must be willing to part ways with your own illusions of control.

On the second day of my spiritual pilgrimage to the confluence project sites I drove into Oregon and toward home, because the sites actually led back that way. The first site I visited was Celillo Park. It's currently the only site where the project hasn't been installed, but I wanted to go there anyway. It used to be underwater, because of the falls that had been there. It was supposed to be a protected fishing site for the Native Americans But in the 1950's the U.S. government built dams, which changed the Columbia and silenced the falls.

In this video I answer a question I was asked about why there's so much secrecy around magic. I have a fun answer, but also a serious one where I explore the historic reasons for why people are secretive about their magical practice.
