Is magick for solving problems? For pushing your luck? For getting more money and pleasure? Could it be for changing destiny? Or is it all about discovering why you’re here and what you can achieve?
It seems like a weird question, but it’s been a guide for us. In each new book from this point on, we want to set out how magick can help you by understanding what you use it for.
Everybody finds their own way to magick, but this might sound familiar: You discovered magick because you had a problem to do with money or love. Or, you had a burning desire, to do with money or love. Or, you made an enemy, perhaps because of money or love.
I’m only half-joking, because money and love motivate people to use magick. For most people the magickal journey starts with problem-solving of some kind, which is ok. We’ve written lots of books that are problem-solvers.
What’s great is that even the most basic problem-solving magick always gives you a chance to go somewhere else. Every result shows that reality can be changed, and that’s amazing. I still don’t take it for granted and I don’t think we ever should. A sense of wonder keeps it all alive.
