MAGICK HAPPENS WHEN WE BELIEVE
When you look up the definition of magic –
it’s unsurprisingly mundane. Influencing a course of events through
‘mysterious’ forces, or making things disappear? It seems much more than
just something that has a delightfully unusual quality! Screen Shot

Magic is something that transcends any specific definition because we are the ones to define it.
is something that you decide exists or not. It is a way to view life,
where the entire idea of the third dimension is a magical, abstract
playground of possibility.
The other day I created a bunch of static electricity while petting my cat – and I thought okay THIS is magic.
course it can be measured scientifically, we can apply it to equations
so we can logically understand it – but it’s magic. A trail of miniature
electrical explosions shock my hand because of an unbalanced amount of
protons and electrons?
We’re taught that everything that
is ‘real’ can be examined scientifically and if we can’t logically
understand it, then it must not exist or we’re being delusional.
how a child experiences the world; they navigate life through a dream
like consciousness where the idea of magic and impossible or
contradicting concepts logically make sense. If our global community was
designed to support our right brain – we could all thrive in a system
where the work we do revolves around feeling, passion and creativity.
you think of all this from the perspective that we are all creators,
and if the synapses in our brain spontaneously and collectively shifted
into everyone believing and understanding the ‘science’ behind things
like magic, aliens, fairies etc, it would all manifest.
that to happen we’d have to see the pattern of the universe – we’d have
to understand energy on the smallest, fundamental levels to be able to
fractal it up onto 3D physicality.We would need to literally SEE the
geometries that make up this reality.
If we could
see/feel/sense the energies that make up both matter and consciousness
itself, we would understand that an alien or something impossible is
just a certain sequence of spinning, fundamental geometries that –
depending on how fast they spin will appear as solid matter. The faster
they spin the more energy is let off in the form that we see as light.
What we call an angel is a consciousness that, fundamentally is made up of the same geometries as us.
at a higher frequency means your consciousness is not limited to linear
thinking, and you can hold exponentially more information.
The amount of energy it takes to exist on a higher plane with that immense level of knowledge is monumental comparing to a human
our perspective, higher dimensional consciousnesses we label as angels
or light beings are just as physical as us but appear to be emitting
light because of the amount of energy they produce.
we can combine our scientific, logical and mathematical understanding of
the world with our intuition, creativity and the realization that on a
fundamental level we are all one – then our interaction with reality
It’s all math, and it’s all magic.
The Fibonacci spiral, the flower of life, it’s all living math that is the fabric holding consciousness together.
this evolving, infinite fabric holds every impossible idea and every
contradicting possibility – there’s enough room within Source, the
universe, consciousness – for every single thing to exist.
What is Magick?
Magick is a part of occult study, along with systems of divination and alchemy. In general, its the activity of trying to cause change toward a desired end through symbolic means. The objectives of Magick and the elements of its practice vary from one system or culture to another.
Generally the purpose of magick is to alter the self and the environment according to the will. It uses mental training, concentration, pshychic forces and a system of symbols to program the mind.
How do you spell Magick?
The word Magick with a ‘k’ is often used to distinguish between occult magic and stage magic. It’s use is most often associated with Aleister Crowley a famous and controversial practitoner of the occult in the early 1900′s. He describes it as “the Science and Art of causing change to occur in conformity with Will.”
Magick is not good or bad. It is a system to achieve something, therefore the outcome rests with the practitioner. You have free will and can do as you wish but you cannot escape the responsibility of cause and effect.
Many systems have been developed over the ages to help us control our thoughts. A great amount of dogma too has been kicked around in an attempt to make us into better people. Magick (the occult kind, spelled with a ‘k’) is one of the oldest and most general of these systems. Magick is the study and application of psychic forces. It uses mental training, concentration, and a system of symbols to program the mind. The purpose of magick is to alter the self and the environment according to the will.
Most of the magick we see today comes to us from ancient Egypt and Chaldea. The Chinese, Hindus, and Tibetans developed their own unique types of magick. Western magick was locked up by the Egyptian priests for thousands of years and then supressed by the rise of Christianity. It was not until medieval Europe that magical knowledge was rediscovered by the alchemists and Cabalists. Only during the past hundred years or so has western culture been open minded enough to permit widespread investigation of the subject. Only since the start of the twentieth century has science shown much interest in it al all.
PARAPSYCHOLOGY AND PSYCHIC PHENOMENA
Through parapsychology, we are gaining insights into the hidden nature of man. Parapsychology is a branch of psychology which studies psychic phenomena. It remains something of a frontier, even today. Perhaps one reason for this is that psychic phenomena are somewhat inconsistent. Nevertheless, there is strong evidence from numerous cases and experiments in support of psychic phenomena. Somehow, under the right conditions, the mind can directly affect the environment.
We may theorize that the human mind and body broadcasts a kind of psychic energy or force, much like a radio station. Kirlian photography, temperature effects, cloud chamber tests, and other experiments tend to support this theory. Although the exact nature of this psychic force is subtle and unknown, it is undoubtedly the energy behind all psychic phenomena and magick. However, it is *not* a radio wave, since it behaves somewhat differently. The psychic force is too weak to be measured directly (at least so far as we know). Everyone has some psychic ability. There are numerous types of psychic phenomena. Parapsychology separates them into two groups: ESP and PK…
EXAMPLES OF ESP
ESP, the abreviation for extra sensory perception, means the reception of information through paranormal means (ie. not regular physical senses of sight, sound, touch, smell, or taste). In theory, this is accomplished by receiving psychic force from outside the body. Here are some examples of ESP:
1) Clairvoyance, or Remote Viewing — the ability to sense or ‘see’ (non-physically) distant objects, places, and people.Individuals who see ghosts and spirits are probably clairvoyant.
2) Clairaudience, or remote hearing — the ‘hearing’ of paranormal information.
3) Astral Projection (OOBE) or Traveling Clairvoyance — Full experience at a remote location while the physical body sleeps.
4) Psychometry — the reading of information by the touch of physical objects.
5) Telepathic receiver — the ability to directly receive thought (communication) at a distance, with no physical connection to the sender. There are many everyday examples of this, in which we think something just as anotherperson is about to say it. This is an easy one to test for through experiment. Very dramatic cases of telepathy have been recorded; there is often an emotional element in such cases.
6) A ‘channel’ or medium, as in a seance, who is in direct communication with a ‘spirit’ or entity.
7) Experience with a Ouija board, pendulum, or automatic writing.
8) Precognition — to forsee the future. Again, highly emotional events are the ones most likely to be ‘tuned in’.
9) Retrocognition — knowledge of the past, by paranormal means.
EXAMPLES OF PK
PK, the abreviation for psychokinesis, is the active or sending side of psychic phenomena. The theory here is that psychic force is sent out from the individual. Examples of PK include:
1) Telepathic sender — the transmitter in the telepathy just discussed.
2) Psychokinesis (or telekinesis) proper — the ability to move objects by means of psychic force.
3) Somewhat along the same lines are poltergeist (noisy ghost) phenomena in which objects move of their own accord or noises are heard. There is always a human agent involved — frequently a teenage girl — who appears to be the source of psychic energy.
4) Psychic healing — the ability to heal various illnesses and infirmities. There are many documented cases of this. Usually it involves a healer and a subject, although there are recent cases invloving cancer patients learning to heal themselves.
5) Teleportation, apportation, and levitation. Some occultists feel a magician producing PK effects is simply a channel for universal energy. Others think the force originates some way directly within the magician.
Postulated by Freud and others, the concept of the subconscious mind is an important one. Basicly, this is the idea that part of the mind normally operates below or outside of ordinary consciousness and awareness. Dreams and hypnosis are examples of this. Also subconscious are the many automatic functions of the physical body such as respiration and digestion.
WHY DO MAGICK?
Magick encompasses many things — science and art, philosophy and metaphysics, psychology and comparative religion. Magick is an adventure at the borderlands of the unknown. It can fit the pieces of the puzzel of life into a meaningful whole.
Magick is fun and interesting. Use magick to help raise consciousness without drugs. Gain new experiences. Fantacy can come alive through magick. Psychic phenomena can be controlled and be fun and helpful.
Magick is beneficial. It can help you to have excellent health, and bring you good luck. With magick life runs smoothly; life is good. Also use magick for personality improvement, to control bad habits and to develop new motivations.
Magick is powerful. Never underestimate the tremendous power of magick. Use magick to alter events and to achieve your goals. Exert an influence over people and phenomena. But power for its own sake is self defeating. The power which magick can give you should not be your primary reason for studying it.
MAGICK AND WITCHCRAFT
A number of other occult disciplines are prevalent today besides magick. There are many cults and sects which profess their own views, but there are really few differences between them. One popular area in the occult today is witchcraft. This is far removed from the cliche of devil worship. Real witchcraft is a nature religion (pagan). Witchcraft has much in common with magick.
Alchemy also has much in common with magick. It’s heritage comes from the middle ages. Alchemy fathered chemistry and the physical sciences. But the avowed purpose of alchemy, turning lead into gold, is too limiting to be called magick. Sometimes the goal of alchemy is interpreted in another way, as the transformation of man into a spiritual being.
Tantra (Which is Sanskrit for “weave”), tantricism or tantrism is any of several esoteric (Restricted to or intended for an enlightened or initiated minority.) traditions rooted in the religions of India. It exists in Hindu, Bönpo, Buddhist, and Jain forms. Tantra in its various forms has existed in India, China, Japan, Tibet, Nepal,Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Korea,Indonesia and numerous other countries.
Tantra is an accumulation of practices and ideas rather than a single coordinated system. It has among its characteristics the use of ritual, the manipulation of energy, the use of the mundane to access the supramundane and the identification of the microcosm with the macrocosm. A practitioner of tantra seeks to use the divine power that flows through the universe (which includes his body) to attain his goals. These goals may be spiritual or material. In the process of manipulating energy he has a varity of tools at his disposal. These include yoga or bodily control to actuate processes that will connect him with the divine.
In Tantra, reality is pure consciousness , which is considered to be identical with both being and bliss. In Tantra, this being-consciousness-bliss is called Shiva-Shakti, a word which conveys the inseparable nature of Shiva, the Absolute, and Shakti, the power of creation. In Tantra, any conception of the Divine which does not include Shakti, or the power to become, is considered to be incomplete. Tantra insists that spirit and matter are aspects of one whole.
As Tantra has become more popular in the ‘west’ it has undergone a major transformation which has made western New Age appropriations of Tantra, very different from the original Tantric traditions of India. For most people , “Tantra” has basically become a synonym for “spiritual sex” or “sacred sexuality”, a belief that sex in itself ought to be recognized as a sacred act which is capable of elevating its participants to a higher spiritual plane. Though Neotantra may adopt many of the terms and concepts of Indian Tantra, the traditional reliance on a succession of ‘gurus’, extensive meditative practice, and rules of conduct both moral and ritual have been discarded.
Many esoteric systems use sexuality for spiritual and magical aims. Besides Tantra, examples of such traditions are witchcraft, shamanism, alchemy, and ancient Egyptian religion. Sexuality is a total sensory experience, involving the whole mind and body. It’s the interplay of physical, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual makeup of an individual.
The sexuality of human beings comprises a broad range of behavior and processes, including the physiological, psychological, social, cultural, and spiritual or religiousaspects of sex and human sexual behavior. Philosophy and theology, also address the subject.
Outer Layer of Thought – Thoughts Becomes Things
outer layer are the thoughts that create our future. This is where we
use the idea that our thoughts become things. By using the power of this
level of thought we can truly create a reality that reflects our dreams
and heart felt desires. Of course we add action, visualization and more
action, but it is at this level of thought that we begin the creative
Middle Layer of Thought – How We Respond Matters
middle layer includes thoughts we have in response to life events. This
is where we understand that it is not what happens to us but the way we
respond that’s important. I used to think that my happiness was tied to
my capacity to cope and if I could learn ways to ‘cope better’ then I
would feel a great sense of self worth and peace of mind.

Inner Layer of Thought – Self-Perception
thoughts we have at this layer of thoughts come from our perception of
ourselves and it is the lens that we choose to perceive ourselves that
will determine our happiness or our despair.
If we choose a
self critical lens then we will hear a running commentary of thoughts
that go something like “I should not still be grieving, he’s been dead
now for three years.” or “I can’t believe that I didn’t handle that
meeting very well.”
If we choose a lens that is
compassionate toward ourselves then we will more likely to have thoughts
such as “I did the best I could at the time based on what I knew and my
best was good enough.” And that kinda feels a whole lot nicer doesn’t
I am grateful to the souls for the wisdom they shared
with me. I now understand that we can nurture ourselves when we perceive
ourselves through a compassionate lens. To live this way is easy and it
is a matter of taking 3 simple steps.
Step 1 Become aware
– Begin to notice the thoughts that are self critical about the way you
are coping or not coping like, “I should not be feeling sad/angry/upset
about (insert situation here).” Open your journal and for each thought
that is self critical, identify and write down a more compassionate way
to view your response to the situation. “I should not have been angry at
the kids,” could be replaced with, “Feeling frustrated is normal when
you are a parent and all parents feel angry sometimes.”

you’ve done this exercise a few times on paper then you will find it
easier to use this new way of identifying and changing your thoughts.
2 Appreciate your innocence – When faced with a situation that you did
not feel you handled well, ask yourself one simple question: Based on
what I know so far is there any way that my response to the situation is
understandable? The answer is always ‘yes’ because we will always take
action based on the knowledge and resources we have available to us at
Step 3 Nurture your self-perception with
compassion – Using the power of visualization, find a quiet place and
create an image in your mind of the three layers of thought. Use an
example of a situation where you are criticizing yourself. See the three
layers of your thoughts and as you focus upon the layer of thought that
is closest to you – the thoughts that relate to your perception of
yourself in this situation – notice the thoughts are resting on a bed of
compassion, understanding and kindness.
Notice that the only thoughts that exist here are gentle and full of understanding about yourself and your life circumstances. If you see a thought that is critical, notice it and visualize another compassionate thought sitting along side it. Over time the compassionate thoughts will grow stronger. Repeat this for 5 minutes each day for 30 days and you will begin to notice the difference.
