Magick and Mental illness
By: / Novice
Post # 1
I have admitted in the past that I have spent my entire life battling Bipolar disorder,I saw several posts by other members in a similar boat,When I'm not feeling well,my craft sufferers greatly
In Magick,where Concentration,focus and intent are everything
Having bad days with racing thoughts poor concentration and judgement lapses are common and Magick becomes impossible
I was wondering if how others deal with This
Id be a lot more advanced in my higher magicks if I were healthy
As for low Magick it's not so effecting

Hey!

Don't let your diagnosis take over your life. Im in the same boat, except my enemies are depression and OCD. Are you on medication to regulate moods? That can help. Antidepressants helped me so I'm in the bewildering process of trying to find a new psychiatrist just to get the same pills I got before. Have you tried natural remedies such as therapy or hobbies that promote mindfulness such as adult coloring or painting? I'd love to hear from you!

I suffer from anxiety, depression, PTSD.

Here's the thing about magick. You can make it work however you need it to.

I move, and I don't stop. I try to not overthink. I've spent hours meditating to quiet this mind. Battled the skeletons in this closet.

So you lack the ability to concentrate quietly? Use ecstatic trance, moving your body, wearing of a mask, beating of the drum.

Many would call this frenzied style "low magick". There is a reason it's so effective.

There is always a way to work magick. If what you are doing isn't working, then experiment with something new.

That's exactly the thing
I'm very well versed in low Magick
And I have my ways to focus intent very well
When I'm sick I'll rock and chant etc
For the New year I want to take my studies of High Magick much more seriously,I'm very interested in The Gotia and Demon/Angel Magick
Im also not going to be using drugs to stay calm so I have to figure out natural ways,normally I take higher does of my prescription meds but im tired of that now.

I suffer from Bipolar 1 and I know your pain. I have found that lots of grounding and meditation are needed for even the worst days.
