New Worlds of Magic (and Magick, too)

This article was written by Carl Weschcke
posted under Magick

A motivational editorial by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke

My goal is to have you believe in magic, understand its basic premise, and see magic happening all around.


The Magical Universe
We live in a Magical and multidimensional Universe! Magic is all around us. It is Life, and Being, and Consciousness, and Matter, and Space, and all there is. It’s here and there, whether or not you believe in it. From the “First Moment,” whether it was the Big Bang or a big egg or a Divine Utterance, continuous transformation characterizes all that is, was, and will be. Transformation is the essence of magic.

If magic is always happening, doesn’t it behoove you to understand it? If it is always happening, then it is happening to you without your knowledge or control. Isn’t it better for you to become an active player instead of a passive recipient?

When I urge your understanding, I don’t suggest that you should go out and buy a big book of magic spells or join a secret society. The important first step is that of awareness. Open your senses to feel the magic around you, feel the constant flow of energies about you and in you. Appreciate that change and transformation are magical. Feel the joy there is in change whether in the happiness of a child or even in the pains of old age for transformation is all part of the process of Life and Love.


Intentional Transformation
With awareness, you start an intentional process of transformation within yourself. Your senses expand into the psychic spectrum, and with greater awareness your opportunity for conscious choice is greater.

Quantum theory teaches us that we have our being in a field of potential, and that it is our “Observation” of that potential that establishes a base for our “Intention” to activate the potential of our choice, or without our choice! Observation stirs the pot, so to speak, making intelligent choice important. As you become more aware of potential, your ability to direct transformation increases. You set goals and power-up through directed emotion (energy-in-motion) and visualize the desired change.


You, as Co-Creator!

Yes, of course, like anything else, you learn by doing. It is worth your while to study magic and initiate yourself as a magician. That’s really what you are here to do, for as a magician you become a co-creator of the world around you. And the more you know and understand, the better your choices become—not only for your own benefit but for that of all life around you. With your expanded awareness and understanding, you become a better citizen able to use your power of choice to improve the natural environment, to better see how your choices will affect the larger economy, political world, and social environment, and better understand your role as parent, lover, and everything else.

You are not alone. None of us are. We are in many relationships, and our understanding of the magic in those relationships enriches our lives and these others.

The magical life is an aware life. With awareness come “riches” of all kinds. More opportunities and choices open for you. “The Secret” is that you have magical power to fulfill your conscious goals. The “other secret” is that your unconscious fears are likewise energized. With knowledge and understanding, you gain control over this wonderful creative power.

The study and practice of magic should be part of your everyday life. Once you start, you will be attracted to the books that are right for you. Study our catalogs, look on booksellers’ shelves, read reviews, and follow your intuition. See magic in life all around you and become conscious of your choices and make them with intention to fulfill your goals.

Sensitive people have gotten a bum rap. We live in a world that doesn't embrace the values of sensitivity, so we get told that we are weak, unusual, touchy, and hard to please. The sad truth is that we hear these messages in many ways throughout our lives. Even if it is from a well-meaning teacher or parent who tries to "toughen us up," the crux... read this article
