Welcome to 2022, Chaos Fam!
I write this while fireworks serve as my auditory background and my love lounges on the bed before her return trip home. While 2021 was another rough one, 2022 at least feels hopeful in many other ways.
2021 brought a lot of new things into my life - the ChaosMagick.com website, new magickal partners in crime, a cool girlfriend, my kids back with me, talking with and meeting some of the most amazing magick people ever.
The list could go on and on. Being rich isn't always about money. Sometimes it's about the experiences you get to have.
This Week's Topics:
- Good Magickal Mental Health: Why taking a break is beneficial!
- Daily Magicks: Bring in the New Year with a House Cleaning Banishing!
- The CMC Presents Podcast: Creation and Destruction featuring Amun Disalvatron and Dave Lee!
- CMC Featured Articles: All the best from the site this week!
- Final Word: Hail the Nu-Dawn, or What It's Like Leading a Secret Cabal!

Taking a break with your magickal practice is not only recommended, but essential to your advancement as a magician.
Becoming consumed with your work is a very real hazard when performing any act repeatedly. With magick, it's important to realize when you've reached a point of obsession and burnout.
The reasons are many, but your mental health is absolutely the most important. Many a magician has been led to ruin by simply not taking the time to step away temporarily.
Magick, specifically chaos magick IMHO, with it's dogma and paradigm shattering, can cause a special kind of burnout. If you go too deep down the rabbit hole, you never know what fantasy your mind might conjure to protect you.
Better to take a holiday than to burn out and fade away.
Daily Magicks: Cleaning up and cleansing your living and work spaces.
It's easy to forget the mundane things we can do that produce magickal results. With both the chatter of the consensus reality in our heads and the buzz of magick in our souls, we can easily overlook common things that can help us both in our daily life and our practice.
A clean living and work space is a big deal for your state of mind. Clutter and a messy environment can affect you both physically and mentally. So, in the New Year, maybe it's time to make some simple changes.
Schedule a day for cleaning and cleansing. Remove the clutter from your life, get rid of things you don't need, donate some stuff to charity. Above all, make your space more breathable and livable.
Afterwards, with a little routine maintenance, you can get your home and work spaces free to do your best work!

The Last Word: Hail the Nu-Dawn, or What It's Like Leading a Secret Cabal!
I'm not even going to lie. The best rumor I heard about myself in 2021 is that I'm the leader of a secret cabal. They even gave us a name - the Chucklefuck Gang.
It feels a little like winning some sort of award when these things happen. Someone in the occult community talks smack like kids in a cafeteria in grade school. Next thing you know, you're the leader of super sekrit cult trying to rid the world of them.
Of course, my first thoughts when I heard this are, "What's the protocol here? Do I have to do something like a potluck to welcome people to the cult? Should I buy robes? How many gallons of kool-aid should I make?"
It was very disconcerting for a bit there, but then I realized I didn't have to worry about any of these details at all. Seeing as how my new fans would just make this all up for me, anyway.
Fiction is funny that way.
Oh, and here's a thing sung to the tune of The Lollipop Guild as an earworm for the new year...
