Inspired by Chaos Magick these votive candles were created from multiple old and mixed candles. Recycling & Chaos at it’s finest! It’s not how magical the tools you use are but it’s you that brings about your change. Use to draw whatever your wish to your life or in the spirit of Chaos for whatever you want! Most chaos magic techniques involve something called the gnostic state, or gnosis. This is described as an altered state of consciousness in which a person’s mind is focused on only one point, thought, or goal and all other thoughts are thrust out. The gnostic state is used to bypass the “filter” of the conscious mind – something thought to be necessary for working most forms of magic.
Chaos magic, is a contemporary magical practice. It was initially developed in England in the 1970s, drawing heavily from the philosophy of artist and occultist Austin Osman Spare. Sometimes referred to as “success magic” or “results-based magic”, chaos magic claims to emphasize the attainment of specific results over the symbolic, ritualistic, theological or otherwise ornamental aspects of other occult traditions.
Magical traditions like Wicca, Qabalah or the Golden Dawn system combine techniques for bringing about change with “beliefs, attitudes, a conceptual model of the universe (if not several), a moral ethic, and a few other things besides.” Chaos magic grew out of the desire to strip away all of these extraneous elements, leaving behind only the techniques for affecting change; hence the emphasis is on actually doing things – i.e., experimenting with different techniques, rather than memorising complex rules, symbols and correspondences – and then retaining those techniques that appear to produce results.
This “pick’n’mix/D.I.Y” approach means that the working practices of different chaos magicians often look drastically different, with many authors explicitly encouraging readers to invent their own magical style.
