* No specialized metaphysical training is required. What is required is that you become aware of the natural rhythms, energies, powers, and patterns of Earth and her diverse inhabitants.
What is magic anyway? What is this Pure Magic?
Real magic, the magic of the Earth, is Pure Magic. Magic in its purest form consists of a dialogue between Earth and yourself, a dialogue whereby you are able to express your desires, receive and recognize a response and are then able to make your wishes and desires come true. Earth’s gift to her children, it is the simplest, most basic and most ancient magical art, open to all. Expenses are minimal. No specialized metaphysical training is required. You don’t even need to understand what metaphysical means. What is required is an awareness of the natural rhythms, energies, powers and patterns of Earth and her diverse inhabitants. These rhythms and powers are then manipulated in a harmonious and conscious manner to help manifest your goals. In simple language, Pure Magic encourages you to take your dreams and desires and translate them into concrete reality.
By definition, magic is mysterious and effective.
The effective part is crucial: magic is a practical art. There are spells that have lasted for millennia. If they absolutely didn’t work ever for anyone, they wouldn’t be remembered. The converse is also true: no one thing works for everyone. This goes for conventional medicine, traditional medicine, educational theories and magic, too. Because your headache defied that aspirin, doesn’t mean that aspirin never works. It just wasn’t the right tool for you at that moment. “But that’s real life,” you protest, “not magic!” Well, magic is real life, too. There is a power that radiates from all living beings in varying degrees of force and clarity. The Polynesians refer to it as mana. Among the Yoruba, a prominent language group of Western Africa, it is known as axé. In Morocco, this power is called baraka and in other areas of the Islamic world some variation on that word way be used.
