Santa Magick:
How to Summon the Wish-Granting Energies of Santa Claus

Believe it or not, Santa is very much real

Most people see Santa Claus as just that jolly, red-suited man who brings little boys & girls presents at Christmas (— that is, of course, if they’ve been on their best behavior.)

But to us here in the “magic world”, Santa Claus is an advanced, ever-growing thoughtform.

What is a thoughtform?

Essentially, a thoughtform develops when you give intense concentrated attention to an idea or thought, over and over again. The more “thought energy” you fuel your idea with, the more presence it develops, the more potent it becomes.

Eventually, enough to influence your inner & outside world.

Magicians exploit this phenomenon by deliberately making thoughtforms to carry out specific tasks. Thoughtforms can cover a broad range of functions: manifesting a desired result, guarding your home, protecting yourself, influencing another person, and so on.

Here’s the interesting thing. When a whole group of people focus on the same thoughtform, the potency of the thoughtform multiplies. It becomes a group thoughtform called an egregore.

What is an Egregore?

Here are a few other ways of looking at Egregores, which, put simply, are thoughtforms powered up by many people:

⚫ “An energized astral form produced consciously or unconsciously by human agency. In particular, (a) a strongly characterized form, usually an archetypal image, produced by the imaginative and emotional energies of a religious or magical group collectively, or (b) an astral shape of any kind, deliberately formulated by a magician to carry a specific force.

– Melita Denning and Osborne Phillips, Planetary Magick: Invoking and Directing the Powers of the Planets

⚫ “from a Greek word meaning “watcher” – a thought-form created by will and visualization. A group egregore is the distinctive energy of a specific group of magicians who are working together, creating and building the same thought-form or energy-form.”

– Golden Dawn Glossary at

⚫ “Any symbolic pattern that has served as a focus for human emotion and energy will build up an egregore of its own over time, and the more energy that is put into such a pattern, the more potent the egregore that will form around it.”

– John Michael Greer, Inside a Magical Lodge

The Santa Thoughtform (Egregore)

When it comes to Santa, millions (if not billions) engage & empower this thoughtform each year – consciously and unconsciously – in a huge worldwide ceremony called Christmas.

…all those kids and parents of the world feeding the god-form of Santa psychic energy, love, affection and cookies in a worldwide ritual every year…

…every year he delivers, avatars spread across the entire suburban hell of the San Gabriel Valley, invoked in a ritual every Christmas eve, parents assuming the quietness, swiftness and good will in a yearly sacred invocation.

Santa lives, whether invoked unconsciously by the parental magi or not!

– Josh, Chaos Matrix

Every Christmas – (and in the build-up to it) – emotional stories & movies of Santa’s miracles warm the hearts of children; fluffy red & white hats and full costumes pay tribute to him; idol-like toys and figurines of the wish-granting legend are displayed in homes and retail stores around the world; youngsters vividly imagine the presents they are certain he will bring; festive TV ads, portraying Santa as the ultimate joy-bringer, reach the minds of millions.

Intentional or not, all of this fuels the thoughtform, more and more.

For magicians and manifestors, Christmas is the perfect time to harness the power of the super-concentrated Santa thoughtform, associated with:

• Giving gifts and granting wishes
• Performing miracles
• Bringing happiness around the world

Tell Santa What’s On Your Wishlist

Gordon White – in his article Sigilize Your Letters To Santa Today – suggests this is an opportunity to work on attaining desires and creating outcomes you would normally consider complex or difficult to manifest. Even the long shots you call “miracles”:

Today is one of the best days to go after the items on your critical path that currently have the lowest probability of success. What do I mean by that? I mean the ones that edge the closest to miracles:

• Chance meetings with important people who are willing to help you.

• Discovery of a new natural treatment to treat a chronic disorder.

• Out of the blue calls from friends wanting to hook you up with their newly-single doctor friend who really has a thing for [exactly what you are].

Corporate-speak for this is “reach objectives”. The things that are almost too good that you would otherwise daren’t ask for.

– Gordon White

Christmas Creep

As you might have gathered, this is a time-sensitive opportunity that comes around only once a year. So when can you actually use Santa magic?

Thanks to mainstream media and huge advertising budgets of major companies, the Santa thoughtform is “activated” as early as November.

This is all down to Christmas Creep:

Christmas Creep is a merchandising phenomenon in which merchants and retailers introduce Christmas-themed merchandise or decorations before the traditional start of the holiday shopping season…

– Wikipedia

Still, it’s recommended you use it in the peak of its potency – December. Specifically, around Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. You’ll probably be fine using it for a few days after that too.

How to harness the powerful, wish-granting energies of Santa Claus

So, how can you take advantage of this time-sensitive, once-a-year opportunity?

Outlined below are some examples of simple “chaos magic style” routines you can use to send your magical intent to Santa Claus. These are step-by-step manifestation rituals that incorporate a couple of techniques, including sigil magic, candle magic, and mental imagery.

Whatever you choose to do, the idea is to perform the ritual as if you are genuinely connecting to Santa and communicating your wish.

After reading through each one: feel free to add, take away, mix & match elements to create a ritual that is entirely your own. (More power to you!)

Technique One: Santa’s Miracle

Step 1: Light a red candle

In a dark or dimly lit room – where you can sit comfortably and won’t be disturbed – place the candle somewhere safe in front of you and light it with a lighter or match. This red candle will help create your “connection” to Santa.

Alternative: Instead of a red candle, you could work with an image, illustration, toy, or figurine of Santa to create a similar effect.

Step 2: Relax

Focus on the burning candle. Clear your mind. Breathe deep and wind down slowly as you meditate on the flame (or physical representation of Santa.)

Step 3: State

Read, saying out loud or in your mind:

Glorious Holy Nicholas,
humble and virtuous Archbishop Of Myra,
it is true that you hear those who come to you
in their trials and tribulations.
I trust in you, I hope in you,
and I ask you to intercede with our holy God
so that I may receive grace
in the things for which I have sought.
Be my guide, be my defense, cleanse my soul.

This is a suggested part of the routine from Gordon White.

Step 4: Sigilize your desire

Create a symbol of your desired outcome – a sigil.

We’ve previously discussed how to create a sigil. Here’s the detailed version, or the quick & easy version designed for you to get going quickly.

Step 5: Visualize your desired outcome

Take your time imagining a sensory-rich scene in which you are experiencing your desired outcome in real-time. Try to feel – in the emotional sense of the word – like you are really experiencing the scene.

Learn in more detail how to visualize your desired outcome.

Step 6: End Ritual

When you feel satisfied, blow out the candle (or put away the Santa.) Let go with a feeling of knowing you’ve communicated your desire done what’s needed for it to manifest.

Technique Two: Letter to Santa

Step 1: Write your introduction

At the top of a clean sheet of paper, write (with conviction) the introduction to your brief letter:

Glorious Holy Nicholas,
humble and virtuous Archbishop Of Myra,
it is true that you hear those who come to you
in their trials and tribulations.
I trust in you, I hope in you,
and I ask you to intercede with our holy God
so that I may receive grace
in the things for which I have sought.
Be my guide, be my defense, cleanse my soul.

Step 2: Consider – which list are you on?

Have you been a good boy or girl? Be honest.

Okay, so you don’t really have to take this step that seriously.

But think about it – what’s one of the “rules” usually associated with Santa? Besides only being around at Christmas time, we know that he only delivers a gift if you’ve been a good boy or girl.

Could this idea be deep seated in this thoughtform’s programming? Just to be safe:

I want you to take time to think of at least one good thing you’ve done this year. This could be any simple tiny gesture like buying coffee for a friend, feeding your cat, donating $2 to charity, complimenting someone. Whatever it is, write it down after the above introduction in order to complete a statement like:

My name is _____ and I’ve been a good [boy/girl/man/woman] this year because I _____

You may choose to write a list of things, but one should be enough.

Step 3: Be grateful about something, anything

Next, write at least one thing you’re grateful for.

I’ve found that gratitude – and even writing down a wish for someone else (the idea of gifting) – greatly enhances the work.

Again, this can be the smallest thing: you could say that you’re grateful for being healthy, having a place to live, clean drinking water, food, friends, and so on.

I am grateful for _____

Step 3: Write down what you want

For each thing you want, word it in the right way, and be as descriptive as you feel necessary:

• Set one very clear goal, like: INCREDIBLE CONFIDENCE WITH WOMEN

• Use positive words, like: SATISFYING JOB IN RETAIL

• Describe the final state, like: I LIVE IN A MODERN TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT

I want _____

Step 5: Sign off with a sigil of your desire

Underneath your statement, end your letter by drawing a symbol that represents your desire.

We’ve previously discussed how to create a sigil. Here’s the detailed version, or the quick & easy version designed for you to get going quickly.

Keep a copy of this sigil for yourself and keep it somewhere you can process unconsciously.

Step 6: Post your letter

This is a symbolic gesture to complete the routine.

Put your letter to Santa inside a red envelope addressed “TO SANTA CLAUS”. Pop it in a letter box and let go.

Alternatively, hide it in a safe place or destroy it.

Technique Three: Pure Imagination

This technique is inspired by how children might do it. Besides Crayola drawings and watercolor paintings, you could use the power of your imagination

Step 1: Relax

Sit or lie down in a comfortable spot, focus on your breathing, wind down slowly.

Step 2: Imagine Santa

Paint a mental picture of Santa in front of you. This could be a cartoon, 3d-animation, or a real-person.

Whatever you choose, conjure up the vivid image of Santa: a round, jolly, white-bearded man wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, red trousers, a red & white fur hat, a black leather belt and boots, carrying his bag full of gifts.

Feel, in the emotional sense of the word, like you’re with Santa, and he is listening.

Step 3: State your wish

Now that Santa is all ears, ready and eager to listen to you, say what you want (your desired outcome) in your mind. You could also communicate your desire by carrying out a visualization of experiencing your end goal in real time.

Do this for as long as you like. Use your imagination and be as creative as you want to be with this:

Why not imagine him reaching down into his bag and pulling out a gift for you? Then once he brings it out, you’re immediately transported to an experience of your desired result.

Or why not chant a verbal sigil while visualizing Santa. As you may know from a previous discussion of verbal sigils, a verbal sigil is a mantra symbolizing your desire.

And there you have it!

You’ve now got an effective way to harness the power of the Santa Claus thoughtform, an entity associated with giving gifts, granting wishes, performing miracles, and bringing happiness around the world.

Take advantage of this time-sensitive, once-a-year opportunity that can help you manifest a broad range of desires – including the ones you’d usually consider complex or difficult.

And remember, you can add, take away, mix & match elements from the techniques described. Whatever you choose to do, remember that the idea is to perform the ritual as if you are genuinely connecting to Santa Claus and communicating your wish to him.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
