This is part of An Initiation into Direct Magick – Book 1.
I’ve also worked with psychics as I’ve explored magick, and even become psychic myself. As with energy healers, in each case, the psychic’s intuitions were coming from what we would call ethereal software. Like the visions of angels in the LBRP, it’s possible to trace the connections from the person back to their software, see the messages traveling along that connection, and work with the ethereal software yourself.
If psychics don’t do rituals, and aren’t initiated, where do they get their software? I cannot know for certain, but many psychics report having intuitions since childhood, and say that a family member also had intuitions. I believe that, in most cases, the family member’s ethereal software connected to the child, providing them the same intuitions as the adult, and stayed with them through adulthood.
Seeing this source as ethereal software, rather than some infinite, awe-inspiring force, has let me figure out how to do many things I couldn’t have done otherwise. For example, one friend, a nurse, was unhappy with her psychic intuitions. She wanted information about patients’ medical concerns, but was mostly getting intuitions about physical danger and when friends would phone. So we found software better suited to her interests, told her old software, “Disconnect from her,” then told the new software to integrate with her mind. For a few months, she had no intuitions of any kind, but once the software had integrated enough with her mind, she started getting the information she wanted. This is simply how I normally interact with ethereal software, but if we’d conceived of the information as coming from a universal source, we probably wouldn’t have even thought to look for another one.
I used that same ethereal software to become psychic myself. There were a lot of details to debug, but the concept is simple: Tell the software to connect to my mind, tell it what information I wanted, and just listen. Again, this is part of the normal way I interact with ethereal software. (The debugging was around how to handle that connection, and how to listen. We’ll see how to do that in Books 2 and 3 in this series.)
How does the ethereal software know what will happen? That’s a very difficult, unsolved question. But I hope that, if we get enough people wondering how magick operates, we can make some progress on it someday.
