I think I can explain exactly how they do it.
Its actually quite simple. I didn't know I knew it until I read your reply.
When I worked in retail as a sales manager, everyday I had a number in my head. That number was how many phones I would sell that day. My process was
I woke up in the morning, during my shower I would think of a reasonable number of phones I was going to sell that day. I would sing songs about it
during my drive to work. Think about it while i eat breakfast. When i showed up to work I believed this number and then stopped thinking about it.
Just went about my day. After a week I hit the number everyday for about 2 months. Sometimes I would get little surprises here and there when a really
nice deal would fall into my lap. I did try to push it a few times and come up with very high numbers on a friday or saturday. At first, I didn't hit
it, but after really focusing I was able to.
I started to think about how many phones the store would sell as well. Its one thing to guess how many you can sell in a day, but another to do it for
4 people. My number for the store would typically be +/-1 of what we actually sold for the day.
Eventually our store which was in the worst mall in the district became the number 1 store because I taught all my employees to do it too (but we
didn't tell the owners for fear they would think we were nuts). This earned me a promotion - 6 stores in a new district.
Now being in an entire new market, I was able to prove to myself that this method worked. I didn't know how many phones was average for a day, week,
month... how the shopping habbits of the town were, etc... I was able to get the number right almost right away. I encouraged all the employees to do
the same for themselves. We didn't discuss the number anyone thought of amongst ourselves. We didn't make a big deal about hitting or not hitting
the number. It was just something we did, and didn't talk about much.
Now I thought that maybe this was strong will manifesting itself in reality, but more likely really good educated guessing.
After reading your post, I realized perhaps I tapped into the 'magick' as you called it. If its will based, then its really that simple. And the
more minds that are focused on a particular idea, the more real it is. We do not give our third half enough credit.... mind - body AND SPIRIT... have
faith in ourselves.
Ok now i'm just rambling... but I hope the story contributes to the conversation.
