Watching the world through the window


Painting by Remedios Varo

I have almost reached the mid point of the course writing project I am working on, and what a strange magical journey this has turned out to be. When I started writing Quareia, I had no idea of what was truly ahead of me and what an amazing magical journey it is turning out to be. Continue reading

Magic needs a curious mind – the learning dilemma for magical students

As my work is becoming more known in general, I now tend to get a lot more correspondence than I used to, and the incoming tides of emails highlights to me a major issue that is developing on the horizon of magic. And that issue is minds, curiosity and how they work. I am sure the issue how been out in the world for longer than I realize, and I am only just seeing it as I connect more and more with people. But it is an issue that worries me for the future of magic: many in the younger generation do not seem to know how to learn. And I am sure by the length of this blog entry, many will glaze over as ‘it has a lot of words’ in it. Continue reading

Magic and Healing – the power of the mind

In today’s crazy world of crappy foods, high level pollution and never ending stress, healing and the need to maintain the body is a constant worry for many. For magicians and healers, it is an even more important priority. Magicians become far more sensitive to external toxicity and healers these days often sag under the sheer volume of people who need help. Continue reading

Quareia Module Five -The Magical Tools

Having just sent off Quareia’s module five for formatting, I am taking a day off from course writing so I can tell y’all how it is going, and let you know I am still alive and kicking. The course itself seems to be taking on a life of its own and it is certainly challenging me every step of the way to ensure that what goes in is necessary, and that magical dead wood, dogma, etc is thrown out. Continue reading
