Today’s adventures were…interesting.
I chanted the personal Raziel mantra for 40 minutes in the early afternoon. So far, I’m feeling this mantra mostly in my chest and head, but the vibration also seems to travel into my pelvic region, making my lower body tingle as if I was sitting on a washing machine going through a cycle.
About an hour later I pulled power through my chakras before performing Ritual 27 of Success Magick.
Ritual 27, Adaptability, has recently had me musing on how its foundational ideas apply outside of the context of success as well, particularly when it comes to my magick. I’ve realised that I need to be more flexible in my thinking, and methods of approach. As I’ve stated before in this journal, I love the structure of ceremonial magick, but if the past two years have shown me anything, it’s that in order to move beyond mere survival and actually prosper, my life and magick needs to be able to adapt to the ever changing chaos of the world. My mind has to get out of its comfort zone, where it has its established order of how things should be, and embrace at least a little bit of the madness.
In the early evening I did a pathworking with Raziel. I asked her for another mantra, one to help push me into deeper states of consciousness, and she obliged. I also asked her about the purpose of the personal mantra she had given me, and once again, she refused to say anything about it beyond “you must learn for yourself by using it.”
Alrighty, then. Keep your secrets. lol
I asked Raziel if doing the angelic ascent pathworking from EA’s book Evoking Eternity would be beneficial for me, and her reply amounted to the equivalent of “follow your heart.” As my friend @norse900 said, I could have got that response from a Magic 8-ball.
I had planned on doing another operation later, but wound up falling asleep unexpectedly early so that was the end of this adventure in praxis.
