excellent way to explain magick, better than I could explain it really. You kept it simple where I overcomplicate it. Excellent
There are many pitfalls some of which we don't see and some of which we do, perhaps the worst one of all is the trap of power, whereby we become masters of our own fate yet trap ourselves within the webs of destiny. You soon learn that power has no limits and because of that, it's a trap which you could fall forever into and not realize it.
Sorry it took me so long to get back to you on that. I appreciate your post and it is very helpful. It sounds a lot like faith healing... which I do have experience with, and a lot of knowledge on. Also all the various methods of word of faith that I have studied, years ago. It is a little like "Believe and ye shall recieve." or "ask and doubt it not in your heart, and it shall be done."
Right now though I was hoping for a cure for my own problems. I mostly asked because I have a problem with my will currently when it comes to action in the physical realm. I want to do things and I can't make myself for some reason. I try to do a certain set of tasks and I just feel so exhausted, that I either give up and go sit down, or I drag through anyway but accomplish little. I feel stagnated when it comes to the physical realm. I feel cut off from it at times, and when I try to do things it feels like those nightmares where you are running and your legs feel too heavy to move. I mean I am still trying, and doing things, but I just feel awful everytime I try to clean the house, and my indurance in general is way down. I'll plan to do a certain task, and forget, or put it off, and then forget, and I can't seem to get up enough will power to complete a task before it is messed up again. I don't feel like it is all physical, or all not physical... but I do think it is spiritual emotional damage of some kind.
It also feels like some powerful force is working against me. I mean I know there is some sort of sabatoge going on in the astral. I have seen that much, but I don't how exactly to resist it. I don't fully understand it, except that it feels like I am working against not only the powerful outside force, but something internal also.
It is really possible to have your will broken, because that is what it feels like, but it only seems to effect my physical existance. The astral is fine, but physically... I have been this way for a while. I have lost a lot of my will power, and my self dicipline... as I said, I am still trying, but there are times when if it doesn't absolutely have to be done to day, it might not get done till it becomes crucial. Even then it might not be a top knotch job.
I was wondering if there are some sort of exercises that might build my will back up. I used to be very determined, but I live in a house full of very determined people, and my husband especially tends to force his will. He has a natural ability... I am sure you know what I mean. He's one of those guys with the authoritative air, who tries to make people do stuff by sheer force of will... and after several years of butting heads... I just sort of lost. It seems like my final rebellion is this exhaustion which keeps me from doing all he wants me too, but also keeps me from doing the things I want to do also. I realize it is very counterproductive, but at times I just feel like it is all I can do to get half of the things done I need to do... on the physical realm. I do a lot, but not nearly enough or nearly efficently enough.
Sure, come live a month in my house. If you didn't do what you're supposed to do, or didn't do it the way my dad wants you to do it, you'll get an hour long lectures and some yelling. You'll wanna do it then. lol

Stop stressing out, for one. lol It can be restrictive, trust me.
Meditate, ground yourself everyday and everynight. Your energies may be in a state of Stagnation, you'll need part of them to be able to act as a Force, rotating in a natural cycle. With the veil falling, this may also be one reason you're having such a reaction. Center yourself, as this may be merely a side-effecy of more awakening.
Want any suggestions on what elements to use for groundin..?
Um...is magick where you do rituals, spells, timing with moon and planet phases, and such?
Because I have gotten so far in spiritual practice, I have totally blurred those lines. I don't even know what to call magick anymore. Everything just IS.
So...yeah, what IS Magick, if you could be so kind?
"It is not enough to CONQUER. One must know how to SEDUCE." -voltaire
You have 7 years to practice, for when your child and husband enters your life space, it will be a delightful disruption, but non the less, it will be disruptive and you will need to go back to that place of aloneness.
"We Wish, we Will, we Have" Kata, that's a very, very good summary. You have to absolutely, absolutely believe that something is going to work, or it won't.
Magick IS, it just is. It is everywhere, everything.
Formal or not (there's no way in heck you could classify what I do as 'formal', unless my need is especially dire. Then, I will formalize it, to make it crystal clear that I need it to work.), magick IS.
