I’ve been going through Frater X’s Mystery School videos on YouTube lately. I find it’s a wealth of information and I really enjoy his take and perspective on not just magick, but everything in general.
One of the things that really got me thinking is how he mentions that people shouldn’t be talking about their practices, at least not their current rituals and the ones in which you are waiting to come into fruition. He says by announcing them to others, you’re allowing others energy (negative or otherwise) to have an influence over your own and what you’re working on.
One of the examples he gives, is religious people finding out what you’re into and either being repulsed /frightened/angry about it, or taking pitty/concern and praying for your salvation and to change your ways. This type of energy could be detrimental to your own energy and have adverse effects to your magick workings.
Perhaps this is one of the prevalent reasons many of the ceremonial magick organizations and others are so secretive of their practices?
It got me wondering, however, many here freely and openly discuss their workings where everyone can read about. Has anyone noticed any difference in results between magick performed that they talk about and magick they perform confidentially?
