People ask me all the time, "Seven what is it about what you do that makes it so effective"? I tell them, it's my emotions. Emotions drive your magic to either the higher or the lower side of things and if I'm going to practice magic, I choose the higher side.
Many are afraid of emotions... Yeah... I know magick. Yeah... I'm also a rapper and actor and can't always be so exposing, but being silly, having fun and allowing all chakras to be clear is how I access higher vibrations.
Remember, as above is below. If you feel as though you have nothing to live for, or if you're always in a bad mood or depressed, then how high do you actually think you can get your magic to perform at?
Today choose happiness. Choose higher Magic. Choose your higher self.
