Do any experienced or beginning magicians here keep a magic journal to note your path progress and your workings?
My physical memory is for shit, so I know I will be keeping a journal to look back at and reflect upon for future workings.
Tonight I start for the Four Adorations, the LBRP and LBRH banishing rituals, and the Fourfold Breath and a general meditation before and after, consecration of my meager poor-boy of magic tools. Hopefully something will occur, because, well just because in terms of me and mine. I feel a bit spiritually blind/hard to hear in the astral, so perhaps it will develop on its own through this practice. I only knw the above listed since I have pretty much exclusively read Hermetics. It was my launchpad into reading anything else.
A guide I have from Servants of the Light has this format, does the format of it matter? Any additional things you would add to this format if you do in fact keep your workings in a journal?
The Format For Daily Entries
(This is the most important part of your diary. It is the key to your understanding of the lesson and the meditation you have just completed. Train yourself to keep to the point and try to keep to the aim of 10/14 lines.)
(Sometimes a further understanding or insight into the subject will come to mind during the day and these should be noted.)
Noon Exercise: note if done
Evening Exercise: Note if done.
Title of book read:
(for reading books recommended for your progress from Neophyte to Ipissimus or whatever)
What would you experienced magicians add to it or take away from it?
