Is It Conscious Creation or Witchy Magick?
Skye Alexander, author of Nice Spells, Naughty Spells, defines magick as “creating a mental image of the result you intend to produce, then fueling it with your will and emotions.”
She says underlying all magick is a simple physics principle that before something can materialize in the physical world, somebody first has to imagine it. That energy is the raw material that makes up our Universe. And that by molding energy, you literally create your own reality.
As I’m reading through this book, I started wondering, is she a witch – or a deliberate creator? And is there a difference??
Skye defines herself a “practitioner of the occult arts.” Which sounds like “witch” to me, but the book sounds a lot like what I teach clients regarding conscious creation.
Sidenote: wow – just read my vision statement for Good Vibe Coaching which says “bring infinite magic and endless possibilities to light for all.” Hmm! (Although I didn’t spell magic with a k.)
Anyway, Skye says most black magick is performed by ordinary men and women who don’t even realize they’re doing it.
Which makes me think of how my energy healer said gossip is a form of black magic (projecting negative energy onto another). Another thing that makes you go hmm.
So now I’m thinking this magick and witchcraft thing might be closer to all of us than we realize!
Perhaps it’s just time for me to get over the terms “magick” and “witches.”
Skye says, “Many spells are considered ‘bad’ because they are manipulative” and that love spells are the ones people most often misuse. Skye’s suggestion to handle this dilemma is to to add a disclaimer at the end of your spell, something like “if this is for our highest good.”
I was trained to use the phrase “this or something better.”
Magick and deliberate creation – what are your thoughts on the difference?
Here’s a fun primer from Lisa Hayes on how to know if you’re a witch:
