[quote=“WiseManEcho, post:1, topic:5901”]there are 3 kinds of magic.
ceremonial magic, witchcraft ,and auric magic.
lets begin with ceremonial magic:
this is the act of projecting the energy of the self in a predefined format within a magician’s circle to achieve manifestation. this format is initial visualization, drawing the sacred symbols, and calling 4 spirits to turn those energies.
i define witchcraft as any operation of magic that uses physical objects to achieve manifestation. (yes this includes sigil magic)
this final method is magic of the aura. this is a pretty open ended way to do magic. this can include, but is not limited to; evocation, psychic vamparism, and radionics of all kinds.
what do you guys think of this? am i way off? do you agree? let me know.
i think its completely correct because most things in the universe work on the mystery of 3, so why shouldn’t there be 3 types of magic?[/quote]
I’d say you are on the right track in evolving your own definitions and thinking for yourself. Most simply accept what is out there and are limited to others views. In your case you are already way ahead, having an independent mind is a great advantage.
One thing I’d caution against is thinking something is ‘complete’ or in this case ‘completely correct’. In such a case there is no room for evolving the thoughts further, to expand your own knowledge.
It’s interesting to note in this case that you refer to the mystery of 3, and how that has given you a unique insight. Consider the effect of using the four elements, the traditional seven planetary archetypes, the ten cabalistic sehpiroth, the twelve signs of the zodiac, etc. Each gives a unique and beneficial conceptual set of hooks to hang reality on. Each is complete in itself, yet different in application. None are fully complete, yet sill each retains a benefit in organizing a body of insight and information in a way that makes it usable.
