What is a Magical Intent: The Purpose of Magical Work

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

Magical intent is the purpose of magickal work – the true purpose, with all of the unnecessary frills stripped away.

Your intent is the foundation of magical work, it is your goal, what you truly wish to accomplish.

Successful magick begins with intent and surrounds it with actions; ceremonial, magickal and mundane, to achieve your will.
