Ceremonial Magic and Spells

I use only Ceremonial Magic in my spell work. Others use things like candle magic or Wicca which is very watered down. My work is so very successful because of this.

​Ceremonial magic or ritual magic, also referred to as high magic and as learned magic in some cases, is a broad term used in the context of Hermeticism or Western esotericism to encompass a wide variety of long, elaborate, and complex rituals of magic. It is named as such because the works included are characterized by ceremony and myriad necessary accessories to aid the practitioner. It can be seen as an extension of ritual magic, and in most cases synonymous with it. Popularized by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, it draws on such schools of philosophical and occult thought as Hermetic Qabalah, Enochian magic, Thelema, and the magic of various grimoires.

​The term originates in 16th-century Renaissance magic, referring to practices described in various Medieval and Renaissance grimoires and in collections such as that of Johannes Hartlieb. Georg Pictor uses the term synonymously with goetia.

​James Sanford in his 1569 translation of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa's1526 De incertitudine et vanitate scientiarum has "The partes of ceremoniall Magicke be Geocie, and Theurgie". For Agrippa,ceremonial magic was in opposition to natural magic. While he had his misgivings about natural magic, which included astrology,alchemy, and also what we would today consider fields of natural science, such as botany, he was nevertheless prepared to accept it as"the highest peak of natural philosophy". Ceremonial magic, on the other hand, which included all sorts of communication with spirits.

​The practice of ceremonial magic often requires tools made or consecrated specifically for this use, which are required for a particular ritual or series of rituals. They may be a symbolic representation of psychological elements of the magician or of metaphysical concepts.

​In Magick (Book 4), Part II (Magick), Aleister Crowley lists the tools required as a circle drawn on the ground and inscribed with the names of god, an altar, a wand, cup, sword, and pentacle, to represent his true will, his understanding, his reason, and the lower parts of his being respectively. On the altar, too, is a phial of oil to represent his aspiration, and for consecrating items to his intent. The magician is surrounded by a scourge, dagger, and chain intended to keep his intent pure. An oil lamp, book of conjurations and bell are required, as is the wearing of a crown, robe, and lamen. The crown affirms his divinity, the robe symbolizes silence, and the lamen declare his work. The book of conjurations is his magical record, his karma. In the East is the magick fire in which all burns up at last.

​A grimoire /ɡrɪmˈwɑr/ is a textbook of magic. Books of this genre,typically giving instructions for invoking angels, performing divination and gaining magical powers, have circulated throughout Europe since the Middle Ages.

​Magicians were frequently prosecuted by the Christian church, so their journals were kept hidden to prevent the owner from being burned. Such books contain astrological correspondences, lists of angels and demons, directions on casting charms and spells, on mixing medicines, summoning unearthly entities, and making talismans. Magical books in almost any context, especially books of magical spells, are also called grimoires.
