This is part of An Initiation into Direct Magick – Book 1.
Now that we’ve seen some concrete examples, let’s summarize the major moving parts behind most magick.
The mage visualizes, does a ritual, or does some other symbolic action to communicate their intent to their unconscious mind. Most guides focus here: The conscious steps the teacher uses to do magick, which we hope will enable you to do magick, too.
The mage’s ethereal muscles respond to that intent. Now, everyone has ethereal muscles, but in most people, they’re hibernating from disuse. Becoming a mage involves awakening and strengthening your ethereal muscles. We’ll see how to do that soon.
(Each mage has their own ethereal muscles. I can’t use your muscles any more than I could think with your brain.)
If the mage’s ethereal muscles know how to fulfill their intent, they will. When you do an energy meditation, for example, your ethereal muscles will usually produce the energy all on their own.
But for most complex magick — energy healing, psychic intuitions, manifesting, and so on — the ethereal muscles will need help. So they’ll contact ethereal software, an external force, usually programmed by spirits, shared by many mages. The ethereal software will read the mage’s mind and handle the details of turning their intent into change in the world.
That’s 90% of magick: Engage your ethereal muscles, contact ethereal software, send it your intent, and let it handle the details. That intent can be wealth, love, energy healing, or any other common use of magick. As long as you have the right ethereal software, it’ll know what to do. We’ll see how to do each of those steps in the next few chapters.
And the other 10% of magick? That’s when the mage does something his ethereal software doesn’t know how to do. We’ll explore that in Books 2 and 3 of this Initiation.
