This post is a follow-up to my previous announcement (here: https://bit.ly/2MQKt1S) that I would not be taking new clients, having reached my client limit. In everyone’s life, whether he or she is a spiritual seeker, a total rational materialist, or anything in-between, there are periods of ascent. By this, I mean that we spend a long time working, thinking, and experiencing what it is to be human and then, ZANG!, we suddenly progress. This has recently happened to me.
I think it is because of all the spiritual work I have been doing for others. One of the great benefits of doing public conjure and sorcery is that, while you are working on / for others, you are simultaneously working on / for yourself. It isn’t easy, but it is nonetheless very true that you don’t stagnate much as a magical worker if you’re doing this kind of thing. Public sorcery isn’t just an art form and a personal passion of mine. It’s also a way for me to become better on all levels—as a practitioner but also just as a human being.
I’ve had recent experiences, which have been beautiful and uplifting but also largely indescribable here in words. In the language of western esotericism, you could say I’ve had a new level of “Knowledge and Conversation with my Holy Guardian Angel,” but that doesn’t really communicate anything to anyone who hasn’t also had the experience. In eastern terms, we might say that I’ve had a satori that has realigned my initiatory perceptions once again. I am completely humbled and grateful for this, for being alive, and for being thus far admitted into the Sanctuary of the Mysteries. May it continue.
When I complete the bulk of my current client work (though I can’t say when exactly what will be), I intend to return with a mostly pro bono magical practice. That means I will no longer be charging for my services (with the exception being if I have to do something extraordinary like travel to a distant location or acquire a rare magical artifact or something comparable). I have to give this careful consideration, since I have always practiced a kind of magical reciprocity, accepting a small payment as a way to initiate a bond with my client. But now that I have changed, my practice has to change.
More soon, when I know it.
