Five Minute Magick

Posted by Theresa Mennig on

Convinced all the psycho-drama of full ritual magick is needed every time you want to connect to the powerful energy around you? Think again! 

My favorite part of paganism is the individual ability to forge your own path. No one can tell you how to practice. The path to the divine is entirely up to you. Now, if you are one to enjoy the full set-up and execution of ritual high magick, then more power to you! To me, it reminds me too much of the dogma of church. It feels like what you are expected to do...and it just feels forced. 

I employ many little rituals to bring magick to every day. In the morning, take a deep cleansing breath and give a full body stretch when you wake up, drawing and dispersing the energy of the returning sun into your body. When you get dressed, take a second and make your choices with intent. I'm not talking about picking clothes of certain colors to match the magickal energy, but you definitely can do that too. Instead, pick your favorite shirt if you need a pick me up. Wear inherited jewelry to honor and invoke the power of your ancestors. Listen to a favorite song as you prepare your breakfast and dance around the kitchen to give a boost of energy and confidence. Say "good morning, I love you" to family members to infuse love into their day.

Magick is all about intent. The trappings and drama are never necessary, you determine the source of the magick around you and utilize the natural energies of the world that are there whether you use them or not. Remember, all you need is a focused mind and as little as five minutes.
