Visual Ritual Magick

Ritual Magick

A few days ago, I had dinner with a friend of mine who is just tailor made to perform magick. He was never one to follow the ‘system’, so to speak. This is true for both formal settings like school and work – and also for social endeavours. He was never one to be ‘part of the crowd’. However, he’s often disappointed because he’s not very keen to supernatural happenings or big visuals. He’s never actually seen an angel, or a guide manifest. Me? I see things energetically. Pure vibrant colour, or color, depending on which side of the mystical pond you are. Sometimes the colour combinations form into a ‘shape’. But remember, not all beings are physical. Not all beings look ‘human’. We are just a small (yet powerful) and unique individual aspect of this infinite universe.

I like the visual aspect of magick. When something visually manifest it, in asense, confirms that you are doing something right. I remember, when I first started, though – I did no type of banishing rituals – then, when I’d sleep, I’d literally feel (and see dark shades of energy) something crawling in the bed with me. Other times, I’d hear random movements and sounds throughout the house. Although it would frighten most, I actually was please. That was affirmation to me that the magick that I was doing, was actually making a difference.

Of course, in my book Magick And Empowerment, I actually talk about, at times, not needing to do a banishing. However, that’s before I fully defined what I was doing as Chaos Magick. For a beginner (and, well – if it works for you) I do indeed recommend to do banishings.

Anyway, with over 40 years of magick practice, visuals, to me, never really affected the results. when I practice evocation, for example – whether or not a actually “saw” something had not impact on the results. Each time, I experienced results. So, my system worked, and that’s all that mattered.

Going back to my friend: After dinner, he performed a servitor ritual. I was two rooms over doing meditations of my own. Even though I was two rooms away, I was able to feel its birth. I was INSTANTLY able to feel its presence. Moments later, I was able to see bright colours representing the birth of the Servitor. My friend, on the other hand, saw nothing. Additionally, he only felt a small shift in energy change. This is what creates doubt, often in his mind.

For reasons like this, he insists that he’s not sensitive enough. But I believe what is most important are the RESULTS. So what? You didn’t feel anything? Is the Servitor still completing its tasks? Are you experiencing a difference in what you have created the Servitor for? In every case, as I try to affirm to my friend, he has GREAT results. That is what matters!

So, with that said, if you are in the same boat and don’t often “see” anything during your ritual – of don’t ‘feel’ something that sweeps you off your feet – it’s ok. Document your results. That is what truly matters. Results. Experience. Magick.
