Daily Practice, Now With Motivation! #domagick

Today I wanted to talk a little bit about the importance of doing regular magical work. I’ve blogged about this before.

When Demons Wear Masks

This week I worked with Foras, a demon who can teach us how to strengthen our minds as well as our bodies. And who wouldn’t want that? Me, apparently—or so I thought. Despite my best intentions and several attempts, I couldn’t connect with him at all. There are many reasons … Continue reading
