Smartphone Technomancy

TBH, I was a little against this when I first started – it wasn’t that I was being elitist to the more “natural” tools, it’s just that I’ve been using them for so long that I didn’t feel comfortable parting with them but since I’ve slowly been transitioning to full use – I can barely part with it.

The smartphone is probably one of the things I can’t leave or forget once I leave the house. It has been such an indispensable tool IRL, as well as a tool for a sorcerer.

  • My favourite and personal working grimoires are all in PDF.
  • References of sigils, seals, etc.
  • MP3 of chants, experimental magickal music, etc.
  • Utilities; such as lights, canvas for quick sigils, white noise, etc.
  • Divination tool for personal and clients.
  • Training reminder and notes.

So many free apps that can be used and customized to personal needs. They even have apps now catered for paranormal investigators like EMF detectors. (I have to check out if that is even a legit claim)

As well, I’ve used my cell for divination and focusing sometimes by staring at the blank screen and I’ve used the “pen” as a tool to focus intent or as a link. I’ve used texts and emails to cast spells over distances.

Point is, an ingenious sorcerer will be able to use anything at any point to their advantage; if you like using the traditional tools then go ahead. For me, I need to modularize my tools and this was one of the way of being able to pack as much as I need in one tool.

  1. I have yet to make better use of my mobile. At the moment it is a time sink (FB). I do most of my blog reading on my mobile, but I prefer to post and respond from my PC. As for apps, I’ll likely create my own as I found few specific apps that I would make frequent use off.

    1. i can’t stand the FB app, lol. i am normally checking Instagram, or reading/watching items i’ve stored in the SD card as a time sinker when i’m waiting so it’s not that bad for me.
