At first appearances, it may seem that the art of magick can be summed up, in total, as the use of spells. However, this definition barely scrapes the surface of what it truly means to work magick and in no way implies the true breadth of living a magickal existence. While spells may be one way in which to make magick, they are not the only way and certainly not always the most effective or efficient way in which one may harness the energies of the Universe to bring about change in accordance with will. In other words: magick is more than spells.
At the most basic level, magick is the manipulation of energy, and all the physical world is made of energy. This isn’t just witchy-wishful thinking or New Age-nonsense, this is scientific fact: everything is made of energy at the most fundamental level. And by shifting our awareness so that this energetic state becomes more prominent, we bring ourselves into harmony with the world around us. With this comes the awareness that as energetic beings, we are not separate from the world around us nor are we separate from the people we interact with everyday: we are connected to every living thing upon this planet and with the planet itself*–and that connection never goes away. That is the beginning of where rather than “doing” magick you begin to “live” magick.
