I’ve been increasing my reading on Chaos Magic lately. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to find out more about ever since I first came across it.
I first read about Chaos Magic while doing some research about tarot and my first reaction was deep recognition. It’s something I’ve been practising for years now, without realising that it had a name.
It’s how I knew that I would get the ASEAN scholarship as I sat for the qualifying exams. It’s how I manage to find a parking spot exactly where I want to, even on a busy street. I’ve used it unknowingly in almost every aspect of my life.
I’ve always thought of it as a focusing of energy. I can feel that energy being pulled from the Universe, channeled through my body, then focused on one particular thing. Since I started reading about Chaos Magic, I’ve been experimenting with tools that I think might amplify that energy.
I like the variety, combining methods, and lately, writing my own “spells” (also known as prayers, if you’re religious).
The practice of Chaos Magic and Stoicism have helped me to overcome challenges that have seemed insurmountable when I was in the thick of it.
And however I first discovered it, I’m grateful.
