One of the greatest barriers to religion and magick in this age, imo, is the belief barrier. Children stop believing in Santa Claus as early as 4 or 5, they aren't taken in by any of the tricks that used to fool them in the past. We are a cynical and materialistic world, or at least that is the background I come from.
As it states several times in the current book I am reading, Condensed Chaos, one successful magical event is worth a hundred books when it comes to making something seem real.
I have not fully broken the belief barrier but brick by brick it is falling and my runes are doing their very best to help. This morning I woke up and glanced at the back of my left hand, which was right in front of my face, on my skin were wrinkles left by the covers, they clearly shaped a crude Fehu rune. I realised I had not drawn a rune before going to bed last night, which I do every night, I pulled up the bag and drew one at random from it. It was Fehu.
This has happened before, a few days ago I was reading an article which mentioned two runes they used for pathworking by name, I recognised Uruz but could not remember the form of the other rune and did not take time to look it up. That night when I pulled a rune it was the one I could not remember the form for, Naudiz I think it was.
Yesterday I took wheeler
to the Eco-Magic workshop at Green Angels in Borough on Elements and Elementals. It was enjoyable but very low level hippy paganism and I don't think I really learned anything. I met some nice people though and heard about a moot in Croydon I'll need to look into. I also bumped into Ra Hoor Khuit again during the air part of the pathworking they did, I can't seem to get him out of my head for some reason. First I read the the 3rd part of the book of the law on synesis
lj, then my chaos magic book had a pathworking to meet him and now he's just there all the time. Am going to have to read up on Egyptian theology, drat it. They have a pretty cool space up at Green Angels although it's a little cold.
WiccaUK moot today, but will casparian
