Do you feel that magick can really change the material world or do you feel it creates a more psychological change? In other words, do you think that masters of magick can actually change the material world..like cause rain clouds to appear from nowhere and cause miraculous healings instantaneously or do you feel that practicing magick is a ritual that prepares your mind for making the changes necessary to obtain your goals? Or is it a combination?
I personally feel it is more psychological in nature and that people in general do not have the kind of mind control necessary for directly affecting the material world. Eventually, we will have the ability as we evolve but only a few people nowadays have the ability to change the material world on a large scale.
But thats just my opinion..I’d like to hear what other people think…
to P- that is why I said “Pagan-based” who “practice magick”..because I DO NOT asume that all Pagans practice magick!!
To the person who said there is no “k” in “magic”..for your information some Witches differentiate magic (like what entertainers do i.e. David Copperfield) from what (some)Pagans, Witches and Wiccans do, which is Magick..hence the “k” at the end. Not all practicioneers make that distinction but some do.
Hey, great answers so far..thanks to all those who had some really thoughtful ideas to share..keep them coming!!!
i feel that it is a combination. My magic is more of a passive thing. but i have seen some dramatic effects associated with great need at the time.
I watched an Apache Medicain Man split a tornado in half so that it would not hit the area in which we (about 80 people were camping) and then dissipate it alltogether when he saw that it would go into a small town several miles away.
i have seen healings that i cannot explain done on persons that i have known for a long time, and known them to be sick.
and since working with the Native Americans i have experienced an increase in my own magic and in how it effects the world.
i believe that as we move foreward that magic will become an everyday thing again. that it’s power is returning. as are people that know how to use it.
