Ok so here’s the thing; Yes, actually, a fundamental belief in the efficacy of what you’re doing IS essential to the efficacy of what you’re doing in magick BUT these sorts of stupid 2 dimensional platitudes about magick do my fucking head in.
Magick, in any tradition, is significantly more than just self esteem. It is a highly sophisticated method of repetitive ritual, the educated & sympathetic use of herbs, crystals, oils. It requires the study and knowledge of the moon, astrological factors; knowledge of colour, smell, sound and how each of these impacts each other.
Yes; if you have an experienced and highly trained teacher, you can learn how to quickly short-cut these studies and get results (ie. the honey jar spells), but the ingredients and methods of that spell are not random - you can’t just use anything and expect the same results. And the only reason they work is because someone highly trained constructed the spell ✨✨
The problem with faux-empowering memes like this is that they are a form of anti-intellectualism that frankly, we really don’t need, and only ever serves to discredit the very real efficacy and power of true magickal practitioners.
If it were the case that all one needed to do was believe in oneself then a lot more average white men would be serious fucking magicians. And they’re really not.
Magick requires intense practice; long study, expertise, and more than anything, the ability to focus the mind.
I realize this picture was just meant as a sort of disposable IG aesthetic post but it’s everything I hate about ‘Instagram Witchcraft’. 🔮🚬
