Disclaimer: Sorry, but english isnt my first language.
I live in a quiet town as hell, even his name is "Serenity" (La Serena in Spanish). The fuckin city has almost 500 years but it was dominated by neoliberalism and plastic social climbing. My country, Chile, has little to no native cultural traditions, despite living in Latin America. We become more like a Third World copy of an idyllic American small town in the 50's than a Latin city.
The thing is, Im on a personal mission to restore magic to this godforsaken town, or at least try, through rituals or what really suits the case.
Any advice you want to give me? Recommended rituals? Are there any measures to be taken?
All you can do with magic, is underline your actions.
You ought to do something to get towards the goal, after you have done the magical spells.
In your case, I would ask the indeginous people for advice.. Like the indians. If they practice magic. You can make it an event, where many people come and see the ritual on a stage. They may even pay for that.
You can thematise your points of view of the decay of your society and how you would like it to be like.
Make it an art event. Art is there to make people think outside of their normal patterns.
True magic is normally not recocnised by non magicans. Especially not, if they are neoliberal.
The power of symbols works nevertheless.
In fact, in my oppinion, they even ought to pay to see it. Like that, it has more value.
Also read the Book "Switch" and "Made to Stick"
A friend of minr, who is an artists, says, art has to be entertaining.
Thats especially true for the neoliberal programmed societies. In my oppinion.
Make the art event sort of entertaining.
If I were you, I would support all this with Sigil Magic.
Any other kind will do as well.
You shouldnt be unleashing magic for no reason what is the endgame? The other anons are right though American media art is dominated with sigil magic... I suppose that is the most effective kind.
