Magick On The Go #2 : Why Gratitude Is The Key To Manifestation aka Deliberate Creation

When someone sincerely thanks you, doesn't it make you feel seen, acknowledged & eager to do more nice things? Maybe God aka The Universe feels the same way? 

I sometimes worry that, in sharing my magickal practice, witchcraft purists will roll their eyes at my Polyanna Joanna ways or worse- YELL AT ME. Please don't yell at me... LOL. 

But a wiser, more knowing part of me understands that it serves no one to present a bunch of high faulting platitudes based on by-the-book cliches. 

The truth, my truth, is not only good enough, it's the absolute best of what I have to offer.

So- this is my actual practice. It may not be intriguingly dark or Instagram flashy, but it's my practice for a reason.

It works. Plain & simple.

And lest you decide to get all snippy about what constitutes "real magick", I'll share Aleister Crowley's definition of it with you here...

Magick is creating change in conformity with will. 

That's what I do. All day. Every day. And this is what that looks like...

  1. I LOVE the Magick on the go thing-I find it SO potent and effective in relation the use of Magick as a tool to change unhelpful mental patterns (which is the main reason I engage in Magickal practice/ritual in the first place). The idea of incorporating Magick into daily moments makes the idea of Magick even more "real"to me, rather than relating to it as something separate from my everyday life, which, in the necessity of carving out separate time for ritual, etc, can actually become an additional strain (not that I don't adore the opportunity for a lavish, predetermined ritual). So many of us yearn for a life interlaced with an effervescent, tangible sense of Magick and gratitude, and "Magick on the go" is a hugely effective way to get there! Thank you, Joanna!

    Also, tho I perceive linguistic and conceptual overlap between "gratitude" and "appreciation", I enjoy recognizing a distinction. Like, there is a slight difference between appreciating a work of art, and feeling gratitude for RECEIVING a work of art as a gift or something like that... idk, I think this idea can and does go all over the place... Thanks for bringing this question up! I love words, and the study of words!

  2. It was really cool to watch this video, as I started practising gratitude recently, doing a bit the same thing as waking up and saying thank you for as many things I can think of and similar at bedtime. I'm reading the book The Magic by Rhonda Byrne. And yes! I also find this to be one of the most potent magic ever. And it really puts me in a place of contentment and happiness. And it's so easy to practise on the go, just keep saying thank you for every lovely thing. Awesome video! Thank you so much for sharing xxx

  3. I loved this video! I shared it on Tumblr along with some thoughts here:

  4. I love this! I have so much gratitude for this video and your amazing way of articulating witching on the go! It's the most valuable practice I'm come across!! I love the thank you candle. I also use some candles in the early morning and late evening to reduce harsh, circadian rhythm-affecting light before and after sunrise. I look forward to incorporating a thank you candle. Do you really leave it on all day though? Is this only if you are home all day?
