I've came across this book I'm reading and came across this phrase "lashings of magic" and I'm having trouble understanding what it means?

"Lashings" means "lots of", "plenty of", so the phrase means "plenty of magic". You could use "lashings" in several sentences. For example:
We had lashings of ice cream at Marissa's party.
I like cake that has lashings of chocolate in it.
"Lashings", as used here, has nothing to do with whipping someone.

One definition of lashings is "a copious (generous) amount."

It's hard to say unless you put it in context and write a phrase or two of the story.

Lashing also means using cord or rope to hold things together May be talking about the basics of magic being held together .
