I was thinking about the concept of doing the wealth ritual for KIA that was proposed by Spiral and her anonymous friend which she shared with us on her blog http://kiamagic.com/2011/10/26/group-wealth-ritual/
My feelings about it revolve around the concept of wealth not only as a material gain but also a spiritual or personal empowerment. The online communities like KIA have a certain difficulty in creating a powerful group egregore. We live in different parts of the earth and most of us has never met in the ‘real’ life. We rarely share experience other than our online communications. Thinking of it we only exist as a group thanks to internet- the medium we use to communicate. This in itself can be seen as very significant magical act but it has it’s own limitations. I have an idea that to enchant for a wealth we need to create a stronger sense of community through shared ritualistic experience. I am aware of the fact that meeting in flesh would be impossible at this time but I think we could use media in the broadest sense to facilitate this experience. I decided to post it here on White Magic site because of it associations to psyche and subconscious which we would draw upon in this Work.
What I propose we would do would be to perform a individual rite in the first week of January with the intention of increasing our wealth. I would like the wealth in this rite to relate to as wide spectrum of possibilities as we can think of -material as in goods we need for survival and enjoyment, emotional as in the rich variety of feelings to inspire us, spiritual as in insight into our own life and selves, anything you feel relevant. Each participant would create, produce a piece of art/media for this purpose. During the individual rite performed that week each one of us would establish strong connection to produced object/symbol by magically charging it. The object/symbol could be a Sigil, a poem, painting, photograph, piece of music, short video or anything you like as long as you can share it with us online and it must be produced by yourself. It could be as simple or as complex as you like. We could share our magically charged objects here by uploading or linking files.
The purpose of doing this would be to generate a magical content that each participant feel represents them and each one would have a magical connection to it. The next step would be combine this content into a meta Sigil combining all our personal intentions. I would be happy to do it in form of a short video. Everybody would be welcome to do whatever they want with the content as long as we all share our final pieces of work. This we would use in another ritual later in January. We would incorporate this final pieces into the ritual. We could plan the structure of this together to create experience as similar as we can achieve involving our art. By doing so we would have all collaborated on creating a magickal experience we can share through use of internet and other media which will be transferred into our homes and private spaces. This should be very personal for each individual involved and at the same time it would create a stronger sense of community blurring the boundaries of virtual and physical realities we occupy.
I’m looking forward to hear what you all think about it.
