A magical mindset are our thoughts, ideas, wishes, and actions that influence the course of the events in this reality, like magick!
Let’s start with a bit of science. According to Einstein, both time and space are essentially illusions created by human consciousness. We cannot even conceive of the limitlessness of the Universe. Imagine if we could tap into this boundless energy and power to manifest our desires.
Let's not underestimate the power of magic or our intentions behind the magic, either.
When you decide to immerse yourself in magic and alter reality in magical ways, you have to accept complete responsibility for what you do and how you do it. If you were an architect, you would take responsibility for what you build and how you build it, and it’s the same with magic.
When your values align with what is coherent for you, then you are able to take responsibility. Successful magic requires coherence on all the levels, including a magical mindset.
What we do magic for.
What we don’t do magic for.
How we do magic.
How we approach it.
The importance we give it.
the other things we do in our life that support the success of our magic
This means that we can't get away with being sloppy in our magic. We have to put in the work, too. For instance, if you want to make $5000/mo in your business, but you aren’t teaching classes, connecting with your audience, and generally putting yourself out there in some way. You’re not being responsible for giving the magic a chance to work. We need to show up in a bold way and ask for what you want…what you truly want. You have to be responsible in your interactions with the other realms and the Universe that makes things happen.
Here are some ethical Questions to Ponder when it comes to your magical mindset:
What ethics do you have around your magic?
What do you value?
How do you apply these values and ethics to your life and magic?
What are you absolutely not willing to do when it comes to your magick?
What are you willing to do when it comes to magick?
Yes, there is a Wiccan Rule of Three, which states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times. After all, there is a balance to the Universe, too. Now, this doesn’t mean you can’t put negative energy out into the Universe to manifest what you want. Just know there could be consequences.
As you create magic for your business, be sure to consider this element of responsibility in how your magic aligns with your values, so you’re in a place for being responsible for what supports your magic.
Okay, we know there could be consequences for creating magic. BUT here’s the great thing about your Desires: you get to want what you want.
I want to make this perfectly clear. You are an individual with your own values, wants, and desires. Stay that way! I trust that you are an adult and have created a system of ethics that helps you navigate this world, and this will translate to the way you practice magic.
You get to do magic your way. One of my values is not to impose my will over others. There are no shoulds or shouldn'ts around here. This is a no judgment zone.
I want you to really understand this when it comes to creating a magical mindset: You get to want what you want.
Your desires are your own and no one else’s business. You get to decide what you do with your magic and how you wield it. This is your decision.
Along the same thought line, you don’t get to decide what other people do with their magic. You don’t have to think it’s okay, but you don’t get to decide what they do with their magic.
Magic by itself is a neutral force. It’s tapping into the manifesting power of the Universe and Earth that helps bring about your desires.
A big question that is asked is why would we do Magick for manifesting our desires.
Magic helps us get from where we are to where we want to go, and requires less effort.
Magic removes and clears obstacles, helps with variables & mental static, opens up possibilities and opportunities that we can’t even begin to think of in this moment, and helps banish fears and worries.
For example: If we find ourselves feeling drained, depleted, overwhelmed, or stressed out, our connection to the magic and our guides can act like a clogged sink. With magic, it helps to keep the rivers flowing. This takes not doing magic during these times or clearing the "static" or blockages.
Now, that we know about magick and that we get to want what we want, let’s look at creating a Magical Mindset.
When we’re doing magic, we bring our (what I call: our bag of rocks to the table). These are our issues, frustrations, fragile egos, frustrations, stories, Gremlins, and our projections. Being distracted or tired interrupts the flow of the Universe and therefore, our magick.
Also, each individual has a set of parameters or beliefs, one that we know is consciously true and the other that we have already accepted as true subconsciously (our stories).
Lisa Lister, in her book Witch says: “We can use the magic of our creative power for good, to improve our lives and to create health, abundance, and happiness. Or we can moan, groan, and create sameness. Either way we are always creating.”
With that in mind creating a magical mindset means:
Know what you value deep in your core.
Honor what you want, what you really, really want.
Everyday is a magickal day.
The Universe does not understand magic in negative terms. If you say, Don’t send anymore bills. The Universe interprets this as Send More Bills. Your mailbox will be full of what you’ve just asked for. Know your desires in a positive way.
Be coherent and aligned with your values in all you do, including your magick.
Get in a magickal mood, set the atmosphere for what you want to create. Work with charmed jewelry, set altars, chant, drum, ring your witch’s bell, light a candle, or burn incense...whatever sets the stage for magic will put you in a magical mindset. The more you practice this, the easier it will be to get into a magical mindset.
Smile. It goes a long way in getting into a magical mindset.
Getting into a magical mindset can be as easy or as complicated as you need or want it to be. Remember, this is your magic and YOU are the magic and always creating in partnership with the Universe.
