Magic has been on my mind of late. Although I've read about various "magickal" systems involving herbs, crystals, astrological signs, sigils, and the like, I've never felt at all drawn to spellwork. I can't sit and visualize myself manipulating energy to save my life.

On the other hand. . .wishes, prayers, and unusually vivid daydreams. The intent focus of a creative undertaking. The sharp joy of a particularly satisfying erotic experience. I have felt power, energy, and potential in all of these things, and my instinct is to consider them "magical".

I am interested in other opinions on this matter. Is only organized spellwork considered active magic, or is it possible to harness the latent power in more "mundane" actions to create magical effects?

Hi. Smiley

I'd say trust your instincts. I would consider what you're doing magickal too, because I think magick is a visceral experience.  Having done spellworkings for many years, I find that the best workings are the ones that resonate with my own personal 'style'. If you feel power and energy from what you're doing, that's what you're looking for in any working. If you don't feel that same power and energy with what you refer to as organised spellwork, and your own gets the job done, I'd say lucky you!
