Even Sarah was doing Glamour Magick

All these examples are instances of glamour magick. Some may seem more mundane or less powerful than others, but nonetheless, this is essentially what glamour magick is.

Here is a definition→

Glamour Magick: Using your aura or appearance to change the energies around you to achieve the outcome you desire.

Now let’s break this down. To begin working some glamour magick (also referred to as just glamour), you need to begin by setting some intentions for what outcome you want. Then, you need to do some actual physical labor of changing your appearance to fit that outcome. Finally, work with the energies around you to ensure that outcome is achieved.

Get that glamour, girl.

Today is the day for your interview. You’re so excited and nervous because this potential job is your dream job and the potential employer has great reviews on Glassdoor. You’re lying in bed, hoping against hope that you get the job right away after the interview. So what do you do to achieve that outcome? Glamour magick of course!

Intention: what outcome do you desire?

This is the first step of the glamour, and the most important step. Without detailing exactly what you want to happen, you may find that your beauty spell goes haywire and instead of getting the dream job, they hire you to do something in a completely different department.

Intention-setting in this stage is important, but you don’t need to do anything fancy here. Any intention-setting rituals you typically do for a spell or ritual will work in this instance.

Appearance: make sure to look the part.

Dress for the job you want, right? It’s time to literally change your appearance so you have a better chance of getting that dream job. Don’t over think it. You know what to do.

But how can you incorporate more magickal aspects into your job interview outfit? In times like these, I always like to ask myself, “How would I get a tool ready for ritual?” and that’s what I try to do to myself. Below are some examples of what you can do to amp up your glamour magick before heading into that job interview:

How time on the yoga mat prepares me for magick

yoga-blog-post24

This morning, I resumed a dedicated home yoga practice after a long hiatus. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve done yoga every day for years, but for the last few, it’s come in fits and starts throughout the day. A quick plank while I wait for the tea kettle; tree pose as I wait for the printer at work to spit out my report; standing forward bend as I unload the dishwasher or put food in the cats’ bowls… nothing that FLOWS from one pose into another. I think of it as isolated acts of yoga. Definitely not a formal practice.

I recently traveled to England for a whirlwind work trip. Like, land at Heathrow on Sunday morning, pull into my driveway at midnight Tuesday. I decided to take the time zone shake-up as an opportunity to set my alarm for an hour earlier than usual to reestablish a morning yoga practice. And while I was on the mat this morning, focusing on breath and body, I thought, “This feels magical. AND MAGICKAL.”

Breath. Body. Energy. Intention. 

Everything clicked. All those years I was practicing yoga were preparation for practicing magick.

In yoga, you coordinate your movements with your breath, while focusing on an intention (typically related to the pose). I am a mountain standing tall and firm. My roots reach deep into the earth and my peak rises into the clouds. I am connected to all around me.

I am a witch, calling on Earth and Sky. Your energies flow up through the soles of my feet and in through the crown of my head. I am connected to all around me. I shape my world.

Not so different.

The listening and focus of yoga mirrors the listening and focus that attunes us to our clairsenses and intuition. My chest opens. I settle deeper into my practice. The energy flow intensifies. I feel tingling in my ribs, a call to open even wider. Later, when I work magic, I feel a warmth in my hand, a message from my guides to pour more light into the amulet I am crafting.

Not so different at all.

Namaste. Blessed be.
