Many if us spell it differently to differentiate between the magic as "stage" and the magick of energy....to answer your question, I copy something
from my site......yes it's copy and paste but they are my words. my site....
First let me say, I love the word "magick" just as I do the word "witch", but I hate using the word to those not in the craft. Why? It gives a
mental image of the old stereotype, you know the one, kind a like "Bewitched" or "I Dream Of Jeanie", or something on the "negative" side of
thought! Magick is a science, older than Physics, Biology, or Chemistry, it's just that "modern" science is just now starting to look into what we
have known for centuries. Now, that said... What Magic Is: Magic is the use of energies that exist within and around us. Magick is not supernatural.
Magick is not good, nor is it bad, it is nuetral Just as a knife is nuetral, it can help us cut our food or... it can kill someone, it is ones use of
the knife which is good or bad. The energy used in magic is the same... nuetral. It is present in all things. Our "modern scientist" will agree on
that much. Sand, rock, air, the earth, water, animals, ourselves, everything! All things have thier own vibration, or energy. Learning to use your own
energy along with the energy of other things and/or people, you bring about the change you desire. What Magic Is Not: First and foremost, magick is
not something to play with it is very serious business! You must know what the different required componets are used for, how to prepare them (charge,
or empower them), You must have the timing right for what you are wanting to do and you need to master, as best as you can, visualization! Magick is
not a toy! Sending out energies to run amuck will have repercussions, as often as not, serious ones! Read, read, read, and know what, why, and to what
end, of what you are doing. magick does not know limitations. You must set your own limitations. Be very specific in what you are asking for! You want
money to pay the bills, yes. But you don't want a windfall because Aunt Agatha suddenly became ill and died! The energies you direct, will find thier
way, one way or another so, be very, very specific!
