* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Hello there :) I have alittle question. I was wondering how can I use Magick in everyday life? thank you :)

 
Lots of ways - though for specifics, it rather depends how you define magic, and it depends on what your everyday life looks like.

I define magic as change in accordance with will (in other words, the combination of intention and directed action towards some sort of outcome), and I'm about to start a new job as an academic librarian, so my life has been in a lot of transition (moving across the country does that to a person...), but is about to settle down into a stable schedule.

Things I do at least daily:

- Centering and grounding work to keep myself balanced, centered and focused on what I need to get done, and use my energy in the best ways possible.

- Cleansing work (done in the bath or shower at the end of the day) to get rid of unwanted energy/etc. that doesn't serve my goals or desires.

- Taking steps to keep my home in a way that makes it a peaceful, restful place to be, and that makes it easier for me to do the things that feed my passions and interests.

- And I'm still poking at versions of a morning ritual and an evening ritual that frame my day and make it easier for me to begin and end that fit where I'm living now, and my work schedule.

Stuff I do regularly, but usually less than daily:
- Cleaning intentionally - setting aside time when  I can focus on larger cleaning tasks (vacuuming, etc.) in a way that works for me and makes me feel better when they're done.)

- Cooking intentionally - I don't do this for every meal, necessarily, but I try to have multiple meals each week where I'm cooking seasonal foods, building in particular intentions, etc. as part of the cooking. (It's always a part of my bread baking, but I don't bake much in the summer, for obvious reasons.)

- Renewing protections and blessings on my home, my car, and so on.

- Choosing work passwords, desktops, etc. for computer use that reflect ongoing magical and spiritual goals. (So, for example, I might choose a variant of 'learning' or 'getting comfortable' for my first few weeks on the job.) My desktops aren't obviously Pagan, but they're usually seasonal images that remind me of something important I'm focusing on.

- Creating and playing playlists on my computer that help me focus on an ongoing goal or interest.

- Lots of little "Let me move forward towards this thing" workings while driving.

Stuff I do less frequently:
- Specific magical spellwork of any kind (I might do 4-6 structured spellworkings in the average year)

- Structured ritual, I'm currently doing new moons, full moons, and Sabbats, but that's still a "Couple of times a month" thing, not a "couple of times a week" thing.
