12 Ways to Increase Your Magick Power

The best thing about making your magick powerful is that it’s easy. You don’t need to train yourself in visualisation, meditation, or any special kind of breathing. You don’t need to spend hours learning to say magick words. And you don’t need to buy anything else. You just need to notice what you probably already know about magick and put that into practice.

Magick works, and we all know that, but I get asked all the time: how can I make this more powerful, how can I become a more powerful occultist? The answers might not be what you expect. They might seem repetitive, or they could feel utterly new and thrilling. There’s a lot of truth here, so I hope it shines through

ONE: See the Reflection

Reflect on the nature of magick power. Wait! Did I just say reflect? That sounds a bit boring. Can’t we just rub the Three Magick Coins of Mystery together and get instant magick? Lovely thought, but no, they don’t exist. Instead, reflect on why you want to increase the power of your magick in the first place. Magick is powerful. It does what it’s meant to do. If you were attracted by the idea of increasing your magickal power that’s completely great and to be expected (I still try to improve my magick power, all the time), but if you’re really, really desperate to increase the power of your magick, it could mean that you’re filled with doubt about the inherent power of magick. Reflect on the fact that magick works. When people say, ‘It doesn’t work,’ you know they are wrong. Hold on to that feeling. Embrace that feeling when you’re planning a ritual, when you work a ritual, and while the results are shooting toward you from the future to your present. This sounds like a minor idea – magick works, yeah, yeah, big deal, show me the power… But trust me when I say that if you reflect on the feeling that magick works, you can improve your magick power. Doing this just once, or every now and then, or even every morning, has more impact on your magick than you might think possible. It’s not a ritual, an obligation or a ten-minute meditation. Just a reflection, a little think about magick, and noticing how you feel when you know it works.

TWO: Use the Magick You Already Have

If you find yourself saying, ‘I want a better, more powerful sigil,’ I bet you don’t need it. I bet there’s a way to get where you want with what’s already in your hands. Does this mean I’m telling you to stop buying magick books? Yes, if you’re only reading them and never using them. Use them! Make sure you’ve got a few good magick books before you take this one too literally!

THREE: Welcome Imperfection

Be cool when magick doesn’t work. Don’t demand results all the time. Perform magick expecting the best, but be relaxed when it doesn’t go exactly the way you hoped. Magick is a practical exploration, where you find out what style of magick works for you. This can take time, and then it can change. Your relationship with magick will evolve. Magick that doesn’t work for you now might one day be the magick you turn to first. Be open to this evolution. You don’t learn to ride a bicycle without falling off and scraping your knee. Magick is safer than riding a bicycle, so when it doesn’t work perfectly, get back on and keep riding. But maybe take a different path.

FOUR: Look Down from Above

Every once in a while, take stock of where you are and where you’re going. After six months of magick, you are not the same person you were before. Have a look at what’s changed, and see if your needs are the same. Don’t pursue an old dream out of habit. Use something like The 72 Sigils of Power to contemplate  what it is you really want. Knowing what you want can save you years of splashing around in the wrong desires.

FIVE: Do Intuition the Easy Way

Trust yourself, because intuition is nothing more than a confident guess. That’s not technically true, because I really think intuition is a lovely blend of self-knowledge combined with time-bending psychic power. But when you think of it like that, it seems impossibly difficult to obtain. So think of it as just a confident guess, and use it! That’s all. In practice, intuition is no more mystical than a hunch. Get used to using your intuition. Magick responds.

SIX: Go Minimal

You might want to light a candle, wear a necklace with a symbol on it, and do other things that might empower your rituals. That’s OK, so long as it’s not a form of procrastination or an expression of doubt. But you don’t need any paraphernalia.  The more magick you do, the more you learn about magick, so put the stuff away and do magick.

SEVEN: Perform The Daily Practice

A lot of people don’t want to read Wealth Magick, because it’s a very long-term working and some of the rituals contain demons, and that’s all ok, but there is a very simple (completely non-demonic) ritual in that book that is more powerful than you can imagine. The Daily Practice might read like a sort of New Age mindfulness trick rather than a ritual, but there is so much more to it than that. If you perform the Daily Practice, everything improves. Not just your magick. (For those who will never buy Wealth Magick, an advanced version of The Daily Practice will appear in another form at some point in the future.)

EIGHT: Add Some Empty Time

I do a lot of magick, but I make sure I spend a lot of time walking, sitting around gazing out the window, driving with the radio off, floating in the pool… (Not all at the same time!)  It’s not meditation; it’s just lazing around, on my own. Lots of people swear by meditation, as a way to make room for the insights that magick can provide. But the problem with doing meditation to get magickal answers is that it stops feeling passive; it feels like a result-based task, and that backfires for most meditation. The solution is to have some empty time. Time when you’re just doing very little, without input from earphones, screens or other people. You can do something during this time if you want – doodling, wandering, baking – but don’t do much. Or you can do nothing at all, and just sit around for a while. You are not looking for answers or pursuing ideas. But if you spend some time every day in this empty time, after a few weeks your magick will seep into this time. All those thoughts that the angels are trying to nudge at you; this is where they will manifest.

NINE: Monitor Your Motivation

People sometimes tell me they just can’t be bothered doing a full eleven-day ritual. OK, fair enough, we all get overwhelmed. But if that’s the case, don’t do it. Resentful magick fills the magick with resentment. If completing a ritual makes you think, ‘Wow, phew, thank goodness that’s over,’ that’s the wrong feeling. Magick should be a treat, a moment where you get to dive into your desire and feel the alchemy when your desire changes to satisfaction. It should feel good. If it doesn’t, stop for a while, or try magick that only takes a day, or a few moments (like Words of Power or Sigils of Power).

Demons of Magick by Gordon Winterfield


TEN: Rediscover Secrets

The best films are always more interesting the second time you watch them. It’s true with books too. The best authors always try to layer their work so that you are rewarded when you re-read. If you’ve only read a magick book once, read it again now that you’ve spent some time working the magick. Never do this if it feels like it’s going to be boring, but if your curiosity ever tingles, then have a glance through and see if any chapters catch your attention. You should find that something new reveals itself, and your connection to magick improves. Even the books that you don’t use contain techniques and ideas that can be applied to your magickal work.

ELEVEN: Speculate Less and Experiment More

Readers sometimes ask which ritual to use, and then many weeks later they write again, still undecided. In that time, you can try out three or four rituals, or more. Four weeks of pondering are four weeks of potential change down the drain. When you try four different rituals, you learn more about yourself, and what magick feels right for you.

TWELVE: Dream of More

When you want a lot, magick responds more powerfully than when you only want a little. It’s important to keep your head when considering this. As you probably know, demanding huge change with magick can lead to poor results; lusting after the impossible leads to disappointment; and small, gradual changes are often the best way to find magickal success. But despite these truths, magick loves a dreamer. Every time you get a result, you feel gratitude, and in the glow of that gratitude, see where your feelings take you. What do you imagine could be possible? In satisfying a desire, what do you feel about your potential? In these moments, you gain insight into the possibility of who you are going to be, and what you are going to do.

  1. Hey Adam!

    I’m filled with gratitude and feel so blessed to have found a group of experienced occultists likes yourselves who are so open to sharing their knowledge! I honestly can’t thank you all enough! The magick has changed my life completely!! (And believe me, I’m totally not exaggerating 😀 )

    I read in one of your comments abovethat you had a money conciousness that refused wealth.
    My questions are:
    1. How did you shift your money consciousness to one that was open to the workings of money magick?

    2. How can I get money magick working? ( I’ve never done a ritual for obtaining money and as silly as this may sound somewhere in my head, I feel like I need to do more than just performing the workings and doing my best in the real world to help the money manifest in my life…I’ve had great success with your magick so far and I know it works…but I guess because I’m doing magick for money, it feels different like a whole new ball game….

    (I’m gearing up to begin the workings in your wealth magick book and I want to do my best to remove anything within or without that could prevent the results from manifesting. I’m currently working with the 72 sigils of power as well as both words of power books to clear any internal blockages that may mess with the manifestion of results.)

    • Thanks. Really glad to hear it’s working, and I believe that it’s not an exaggeration.

      1. Don’t follow my path! It was slow and I was still learning about ALL aspects of magick, very slowly, and didn’t have all the tools that are to hand now. I changed through slow struggles, disasters and through reality hammering messages home. Too difficult. The advice you can get now, on this site and in these books, can save you years. The 72 Sigils is, as you’ve guessed, one of the very best ways. The ritual to Enjoy Spending and Sharing from Sigils of Power is a great power to help unlock the flow. Flow is so essential. Money comes and goes and the happier you are to release it, the more readily it comes.

      2. It doesn’t sound silly, in a way, because if you feel blocked you are probably right that the magick will hit a wall. But a lot of the magick is designed to get through this. Avoid Wealth Magick, but be willing to try the Cashbook or Magickal Riches, and just do it gently with zero expectations. Well, expect it to work, but don’t care whether it does. Im sure you’ve read all the articles on here about that. And check out these:

      The Angels of Alchemy has nothing about money, but lots of people have found that working with aspects of the self, the emotions – that unlocks things that are linked to money.

  2. Hi Adam,

    Thanks so much for an informative and helpful post.

    I’ve got a question I’ve been meaning to ask for some time, and I hope you forgive me for asking it here, as I’m not as comfortable with asking it on the GoM Facebook page for privacy reasons.

    I’ve been wanting to use evocation, most specifically with the Angels within The Angels of Alchemy, but find myself subconsciously resistant to it – almost like I am afraid of the experience itself (most notably, that I would go “mad” or something like that). Deep down, however, I know it is something I truly want to do and experience with pure intentions, and that evocation is something that I have felt innately called to for a while. I believe that my love for magick and gravitation towards self-embettrent will override my “fears”.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this. I remember Damon says that he has seen many people go mad in his life and none were from magick, so this of some reassurement haha.

    Thank you, Adam

    • Thank you. There is an FAQ for that book here: https://galleryofmagick.com/the-angels-of-alchemy-faq/ With evocation, some go charging in hoping for a massive experience, and others are actually frightened of anything happening. What I suggest is that before you try, sit in the room (or wherever you are) and just listen to everything for ten minutes. There will be creaks, bangs, dogs barking, maybe a spider will walk across the room. And this is useful because…? If you are scared and go into evocation, you will notice things like this and you’ll go, ‘Oh my god, the evocation made all those weird noises, and put demons in the dog, and brought spiders out of the walls!’ Your senses do need to light up during evocation, so the intensity of everything increases – and yeah, that can be alarming. But it’s normal, as in normal-for-weird-things-we-do-during-magick. And it’s what you need to expect. The great thing about evocation, though, is that if you feel anything isn’t going well, you just get up and look at something dumb, like say, a smartphone, and life seems so ridiculous that everything magickal fades away. I’m sure some people in history have been tipped over into madness through evocation, but only because they were on the edge anyway, and a cat jumping up on the windowsill unexpectedly would have pushed them over the edge. You don’t get possessed by evocation. And with this particular style of evocation, and this particular set of angels – it’s the safest, most lovely evocation you could hope for. Somebody who reviewed the book on Amazon wrote this: “The room was filled with a gentle pressure, like an energy current. The Angel appeared as a condensation of this pulsating, shimmering energy. He “spoke” to me through images and words. I spoke out loud, and he responded with telepathy. Direct answers and full blown conversation. Without warning he was gone though. He gave me my answers and left. No need to banish, or give a final release. This magic is so clean, it won’t even leave lingering residue.” If any of that sounds scary, give evocation a miss for now, and come back when you’re ready.

      • Makes a lot of sense. That review is really nice to read. I have tried to evoke a particular angel from this book two times in the past and was half-hearted out of fear. I can’t imagine going insane at the sight of an angel, as I’ve heard and have read in the book that the presences are comforting at the least. Thanks for the information, Adam!

  3. Oh Mr. AB 😀 you are my magickal earth angel – as the universe is my witness, just seconds ago after my meditation I clicked my 111 MAGICK SIGILS to ponder on things (just be in the moment of magick). Synchronistically your article alerted me. Paused the 111 magick sigils – went here to read your article. VOILA you just once more added arsenal to my magickal skills. To all the G.O.M masters thanks for generously sharing your wisdom & skills & experiences; most importantly for being patient in interacting with your readers a.k.a disciples 😀 , with much gratitude.
