Magick can and will change your life the deeper you get into it, but the deeper you get into it, the more you require knowing how to keep yourself stable.
This is a very needed and important aspect of magick that is overlooked often - why focus on the basics when you can go straight to astral projection and exploring reality, right?
Here is how to keep yourself stable and sane while practicing magick, and how to avoid falling into insanity without control.
Seriously, if you are not happy with your body, get outside and work the fuck out.
If you are unhealthy, you are putting massive limits to your magick and on your mental ability to be unfazed with shit.
So not only is your energy fucked, your thinking is clouded, your discipline falters, you feel more depressed, you become un-grounded.
If you take one thing from this guide, it is to get into a damn routine and pump out those workouts no matter what.
This will be the biggest game changer for your magick and for your life.
Don’t limit yourself, LHP is about breaking those damn limits, so don’t put more onto yourself, go out and work on your body.
It’s a damn shame for your magick and your potential if you’re a fat slob.
Get the fuck out and work out.
That’s the only tip you need.
This should follow from working out. Eat to grow. No sugar, don’t shy away from carbs but keep them in check.
If you’re working out hard, you will eat a lot, so eat.
Keep it disciplined, and this opens a whole lot of new avenues for you. You will be properly grounded, you will be stable, you will be growing stronger, and have more energy for magick.
And if you ever need a ritual to be extremely powerful, you can fast for a day or two to quickly un-ground yourself - controlled insanity, so to say.
The best tip for eating is to read up on what your body needs when working out, give it what it needs, but don’t pig out unnecessarily.
No friends, bad social skills?
If you are stuck in your home without socializing for weeks at a time, this WILL take a toll on you. Right now, whatever you say, you ARE in your physical body, and your physical body is a social animal.
Without socializing, you will biologically fuck yourself up, and this will fuck you up further in magick.
Your socializing needs will be unfulfilled, and you will limit yourself magickally, by making yourself extremely vulnerable to doing loony shit.
Best tip I can give you? Start saying hello to every stranger you pass on the streets.
Then after you’re comfortable, start asking them questions, such as “how you doin’?”.
Soon you will start having more friends and sexual prospects.
Don’t let it take over your life - enjoy it, but remember your mission.
Work and Career
If you’re homeless, your magick will falter. Don’t shun material things. As Above So Below - money is not material, it is spiritual.
You don’t need to be a billionaire, but get your finances in order. Make sure you are independent, and stop doing stupid financial shit.
You’re only fucking yourself up, no one else.
The major benefit of focusing a part of your life intensely on work and career is that it grounds you. Make yourself love the grind. It will bring discipline into your life, accomplishment, and ability to develop your magick as you use it for work.
What I recommend here is to look into creating your own business. Your situation does NOT matter. No matter what it is, you CAN start your own business.
Drop the excuses.
Take your experiences with a grain of salt
Way too often do you see magickians go off the tangent how they are vampires, demons, angels or whatever else, incarnate. And even great grand missions on Earth that they must fulfill.
And way too often do you see them talking about the different titles they might have received, or being the family of such and such spirits.
This does not matter.
What changed? Nothing. You are still here, you are still doing the same shit.
It does not bring benefit to you to think this, you are only stroking your ego.
If you receive such information, take it into consideration, but don’t get obsessed with it, continue improving yourself.
My tip for you - listen to your spirits, but with a grain of salt.
Keep in mind any fears you might have while doing magick. If you are afraid of something, it can get out of hand with magick.
If you are afraid of possession for example, you are vulnerable to obsessing over it after an evocation.
And these obsessions can last for a long time, and seriously fuck you up. Debilitating paranoia and insomnia can occur.
Be aware of your fears, and REALIZE when you are obsessing in an unhealthy manner.
Discrimination and Skepticism
You need to know what you are reading, and take everything with a grain of salt. The most obvious areas where this can apply are different conspiracy theories and information clouded with dogma.
If you are just beginning in magick, do yourself a major favor, and stay away from those, until you are able to sift through the bad to find the good.
As you are reading more and more on magick, read and feel what the authors are saying - do they feel and sound dogmatic, or loony? Or do they seem grounded in reality and results?
Use your intuition, and when you find someone that is grounded in reality, take what they are saying with a grain of salt anyway. Whenever you find a theory you feel strongly for, still be skeptical and look more.
Avoid sticking to one thinking or idea, do not believe everything, and keep in mind that not everyone is as they make themselves seem.
Be skeptical, question it all, and IF it works then use it, but be free to change it if you find something better.
Keep Evolving and Keep Silent
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking you are done. There will be greater heights to achieve. Keep evolving, more and more, and don’t let it get to your head. This ties in with the first few parts I mentioned.
You don’t need physical titles for yourself and your magick.
High Priest/Priestess, Archwizard, you don’t need that crap.
Doesn’t mean anything.
And stay silent. Don’t tell others about your magick, unless it is a very rare, special case. Keep your workings secret, all of them.
Keep evolving and keep silent.
That is all.
