'Laws of Magick' Chapter
The magickal world is not dead. Read the complete series of posts on the laws of magic or jump to the section on:
Law Of Attraction: You feel anything by the process of desire. There is no aversion, only attraction.
Law Of Negative Attraction: You can’t interrupt any condition without dissipating the same energies that brought you there in the first place.
Law of Contagion: Two things once in contact stay in contact. The law of contagion is also a law of training. It is how you can form new habits.
Law of Knowledge: Knowledge, true knowledge, is properly oriented. Knowledge is power, because it arises from power, from the behaviour of energy in our world.
Law of Pragmatism: Our perceptions and thus our models of the world are not literally true, and though they are not literally true, they are true enough to be functional.
Law of Similarity: One of the tricks your mind does is group objects with similar qualities together. We need categories, and we didn’t choose to have this trait. Nature set this up for us.
Law of Sympathy: Web of relationships. You can affect anything by affecting what has a link to it.
Law of Synchronicity: Insight into the interaction of beings in the world around us has predictive value.

Perception is very narrow. If you move it around, you will scan the world only very poorly. This makes everything seem unclear if you won’t let your perception settle. Your perception has a purpose. It has to be in agreement… Seek More
Is it not me that tells me when something is wrong? Such as taking a life? No. It’s not “you”, not the “I.” I can think about killing, but have no desire to actually do so. Yes. Your perception can… Seek More
What does it mean when you hit a wall of the “I’m not sure what I want”? What do you do to get clear on a goal to manifest something? You look at what you are noticing. Then notice what… Seek More
You could say that the way of sympathy is just a philosophical precept, but it has been shown to have a psychological basis, even in those who profess no actual superstitious beliefs. The Law of Sympathy is that things that… Seek More
Two things that are coloured red have a very real shared quality. In a literal scientific sense, they both have physical traits that makes them reflect the red color from the light spectrum. Metaphysically, it’s basically the same with the… Seek More
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein. Einstein would have made a great magician if he were not a scientist, but the two disciplines are not of necessity… Seek More
Does red exist to someone who is colorblind? Parts of red exist, and a color blind individual who is also a synesthete would feel red and hear red. They wouldn’t have to see red. Sort of like the “facial” vision… Seek More
