An Introduction to the Magickal World
Isn't that letter K fun to read? To get into chaos magick, you have to open yourself up to the idea that we're living in a magical world. That's not to say that there are wizards and goblins running around casting spells on each other, but by believing in a magical world, you're admitting the possibility that you can form your own reality with the power of your mind. It's like The Secret but much cooler, and you don't have to use a vision board if you don't want to.
What Is Chaos Magick?
Because of the tumultuous nature of chaos, it can mean different things to different people. But according to Phil Hine's Condensed Chaos (the book to read about chaos magick if you want to delve further into the subject), chaos magick is a primal form of practice that helps you change your circumstances so that you can throw off societal structures, achieve freedom, and "strive to live according to a developing sense of personal responsibility."
Chaos Magick Relies on Using Focused Energy to Disrupt the Universe
Much of the science of chaos magick involves the practitioner using a properly executed magical release of energy (we'll explain that later) to affect the turbulence that naturally occurs in the physical world. To oversimplify the concept: since most of life is irregular and chaotic, if you put a specific, focused energy out into the world, you'll be able to influence that chaos and affect the world around you.
Chaos Magick Rejects the Need for Complicated Rules and Rituals
The biggest difference between chaos magick and more traditional left-hand/right-hand path magic is that with chaos, there's no set boundaries for what you can and can't do. With other forms of magic, you're thrust into a more strict set of guidelines for how you have to practice. Much of traditional magic is made up of an endless amount of ritual that you can get into if you want, but just by taking on the mantle of a chaos magician, you're saying that none of that ritual is important unless it needs to be in the moment.
