I am a MYSTIC who specializes in Occult and Paranormal subjects.
Unfortunately, many of the things you have seen on TV, read, and heard about magick are FALSE. The reality is, Magick is Manifestation Through the Scientific Manipulation of Energy™. By no means am I saying you cannot use Magick to achieve some great things. What I am saying is by controlling and manipulating energy you can bring about changes in yourself, others and even your life's circumstances. Magick can bring you love, money, peace of mind. It can free you of bad habits and addiction.
I still endeavor to learn more and even when I am not working for others, I am working on myself. I use magick to nurture and heal my soul. As your vibrations increase you evolve and that is the goal... to evolve. Not to escape your humanity but to evolve and allow your soul to witness and experience the greatness thereof.
