Warm greetings @WarriorWitch!
As someone who used to work as a teacher, I have full respect for what you do- you have a big heart to help your students through their difficulties! And that’s an amazing area of study, I’ve taken a few creative writing courses and always wished I had added into my degree as a minor. I’m cheering you on as you work towards your degree
This is a really great question and I can see you’ve got some amazing answers from the coven
Others have already put it great, and I agree about magick being defined differently from person to person. I think of magick as both a universal and intimately personal thing. Everyone here pursues, uses, or studies magick, and yet the concept of magick is likely different to each and every one of us.
Things that I consider to be magick (such as meditation, visualization, grounding, lucid dreaming, etc) others might say are strictly psychology, religious, scientific, herbalism, etc. It’s hard to draw a line on what is magick/what isn’t magick because to me, so long as you choose to recognize it as such, magick can exist in every aspect of your life
Magick is amazing to me because it brings us all together while also letting us be the wonderfully unique people that we are
As for what it looks like? To me, magick looks like change. It is the manifestation of our wishes coming into being, the improvements we make in our lives, the natural change of the seasons and the world around us. In my own practice, whether someone calls it “magick” or not- magick is a natural, powerful force and it exists all around us, every day. We can fight it or embrace it, let it guide us or take control of it (to an extent).
That was a fun question to explore and it has been a delight reading everyone’s responses- looking forward to continuing to hear what forms/appearances magick takes in everyone’s practices!
Thanks again to Bre-Shauna for sharing such a thought-provoking question!
