I hope this blog post finds you folks well. It's high time I update my blog & post a bit, so I'm here to talk about the purpose of magical work in our lives. This all starts with a communication sent to me by a client over the weekend, and it is with her approval that I share this here:
"On a more serious note, I'm thrilled I got to mum's safely, too. I took my car into the shop to finish the work necessary on it. An hour after I dropped it off, the manager phoned me. His voice was very dark and he asked me how far I drove my car in the last 24 hours. I told him I drove from Portland down last night, had a 2 hour detour that added an hour to my drive because of a fire around Cottonwood (or somplace). He said that they found my oil leak and it was BAD. The mail cylinder seal for the engine block was broken and would not hold oil. I did not have any indication that there was anything wrong - no smells, lights, sounds...nothing. He said he absolutely could/would not allow me to drive the car. I went to Toyota to take a look...I should have taken a picture of it. Jesus...it won't hold oil, Chris. The mechanic and manager looked at me like I was some kind of freak. The timing belt should have been covered in oil, busted loose and I should be somewhere else but here.
WHAT THE FUCK?
I cannot imagine how my car didn't go to shit. How is that possible? The blessing work you did + my Finland peeps save my ass??? I feel [name redacted] energy and maybe [name redacted]'s energy had parts to play. Mom is relieved and believes more and more in something much greater than she ever imagined...and she hasn't let go of her bag & has been feeding it religiously. How do I get so fortunate?
My boss totally understands that life happens and just wants me to keep in touch - plus she's grateful and stunned that I made it safely here, too. I'm a bit, um...I'll relax here soon.
Bless you for all you do, Chris...thank you so much.
Well, she'd let me know that she was going to see her mum who lives several hours away, and this experience has come to pass on account of that trip to see her. By all estimations, she shouldn't have been able to get to her mother's house safely given the condition of her car, but through a miracle, she's gotten there in one piece. I am grateful that she's arrived safely and this strikes me as an opportunity to share a real-world experience that shows how well-executed magical work can save and improve your life in an extreme fashion.
YES, this is EXACTLY why I practice magic.
The world's topsy turvy and full o' crazy, but sometimes that can be made to work for us. If you're feeling down and dissatisfied, crack open a worthwhile book of rituals and get to work. Get out of your uncomfortable "comfort zone" and make a point of challenging yourself to conjure spiritual contacts, make nice with them & convince them to lend you a hand.
Perform road-opening work, rites for good luck, spells to make your love life more enjoyable, and orations to improve your job. Make offerings, meditate, and crack this egg open so that you might put it to use!
When you do things of this nature, life gets better. Life unfolds and opens you up to experience the wonderment that it has to offer instead of solely wrangling with the dull, uninspiring humdrum of the monotone day to day.
You'll shake things up, but you'll thank me later. ;)
