Magic – Black or White?

What is magick?  To the best of my ability to describe it, it is the practice of trying to change something or make something occur by use of a ritual.  Rituals can use a number of tools such as a wand, bell, chalice, athame, candles, oils, incense, herbs, and other things of the practitioner’s choice.  Some people draw circles around themselves for protection and others forgo that step.  Generally, a rhyming chant is spoken to express the purpose of the work.

Rituals can also use invocation  – the summoning of energies such as gods, goddesses, elementals, entities, etc., in hopes they will help produce the desired results.  And this is where magick seems to get a bit sticky.

Wiccans are famous for their insistence they only perform white magick while Satanist’s are accused of practicing black magick.  So it seems the energy that is called upon determines the type of magick one is performing.  For instance, white magicians may call upon the Great Horned Father while others may call upon Pan or Ammon…..supposedly a darker side. But, no matter what type of magick one professes to practice, the only thing that truly matters to get the job done is will.  Or you can call it intent.  And since everything we do, within this vibrational matrix we all live in, affects everyone else – there is no such thing of not touching the lives of someone else.  These effects of any action on others will be good for some and not so good for others.

The label of the magick performed diminishes when viewed from a broader scale.  There is no such thing as white or black magick.  If you practice magick – you practice magick – and it will work depending on the strength of your intent.
