In times of issues like those, magic tends to be particularly useful. The stories of old are riddled with magical draughts of inspiration-given, so clearly our ancestors felt much the same way about the subject at hand.
When in doubt, I'd recommend conjuring your muse to form and effect and let him or her appear and inspire.
To do so, you will need several things:
- Water (preferably spring water)
- Wine (red wine, not white)
- Bay leaves
- Blessed thistle
- 1 red candle
- 2 violet candles
- Abramelin oil
- A heat-proof surface of sufficient size to encompass the work
When you've obtained your materials, sprinkle them with holy water and ensure that they've been cleansed and repurposed to your needs.
From there, when ready, setup your altar. Place the spring water to the right and the wine to the left. Between the water and wine, place the two violet candles and singular red candle in the shape of a triangle with the point away from you; the purple candles should be closest to you. Sprinkle Abramelin oil on the candles and the herbs, being mindful of safety precautions, then place the herbs in the center of the triangle in the a shape like so: \|/. Say a quick prayer, then light the candles and meditate for a while, grasping the intention of your work and the nature of the conjured muse.
In time, inspiration should come. If it doesn't, you've either done something wrong or there's something amiss in your sphere that you will want to look into.
