30 Days of Spirit Work prepared by S. Connolly

I decided to order this little workbook because I need to focus and really get some one on one time with my deities, who I have been neglecting. I haven’t been able to sit down and properly pray, or meditate in close to 2 years now. What I do, I can’t really count that as something that has been helping me. I feel lost and I need to get the power back up and running. It is there, I just feel a disconnect.

So let’s get to reviewing this bad boy shall we.

This Magician’s Journal is 53 pages, its nice and thin, tall and wide. Gives you enough space so you can write in it without having to take up so much space. The book starts off with you labeling it, asking for your name, when you started it, and when you ended it,and a personal note section. It’s like other journals you may have encountered. I like this personal notes section because I can write down what I hope to achieve with this 30 day working in the beginning and then add what I learned afterward. The next three pages are the preparation write ups (one for the self, two for the prep) to further get that mindset ready for what you are about to embark on. Then a page for conjuration notes and a page for notes. Now we are getting into the working itself. So you have quiet a few pages to prep yourself before you are ready to begin a 30 day working. I would really take my time and utilize the pages that are given so you can attempt to plan out what your intended goal is to be. We all know that the Divine have their own agenda for us, so this can still be what our intent is actually going to be, or what we think it will be.

The Spirit section starts off with the a page for the spirit you are choosing to work with. There are places to draw the sigils, and if you have her Goetia workbook then you already know what it looks like. If not, there are places for the attributes of the spirit, their places, planteray options, herbs, keywords, a few note sections and a larger box so you can draw and map out your ritual. It is a useful four pages that will have you working in depth with your spirit. Again, here is where you will get to do some very good research on your chosen spirit. If you haven’t worked with your spirit in a while this is a great way to become reacquainted, and if this is your first time, this will help prep you for the working and give you a better understand of who you will be working with.

The Work begins by given you an idea for the layout in how to make the most of this journal and your time. On Day 1 you will focus on Sigil Meditation and it gives you some direction on how to go about this day. You also have a nice size area to write the findings of your meditation. Day 2 is the Offering Ritual and with some guidance and a large writing area you will make all your notes about the ritual that day. Day 3 is for the Tools/Seals and Patens and includes an area for drawing. Day 4 is where you will write about notes about any recipes you will be using. Day 5 is where the divination comes into play. Day 6 is ritual oil preparation and notes. Day 7 is the reflection on your first week. You will make modifications and then go one to the rest of the working the way you need to proceed. Days 8-30 are for you to do as you please with your personal working. The next few pages gives you more suggestions, tips and more areas to write in.

I like how this workbook is set up. I like to be a little more organized when it comes to my workings, and I have tons of notebooks and binders all over my basement. But this will be easier for me to catalog and to have for each being that I decide to work with. I can always look back on the workings from that particular spirit and then do it all over again and add more notes. Something that I tend to do a lot anyway. If you are super organized I suggest you get you a few. I did and I can see me ordering a lot more in the close future.

Good luck with your workings, and may they clear your mind and set you free.
