>>17312224 >I want to be able to have a reliable perspective on magic before going through with practicing it. So you want an illusion that protects your from the infinite creativity that magic creates? Or you want to be protected from your own creativity running beyond your control? Which is it?
>>17312432 Neither, I worded that poorly. What I meant to say is that I have no idea where to start with this, and I want to be able to know how to practice this while knowing any fundamental knowledge that comes into this.
>>17314064 The most important fundamental knowledge is that there is no fundamental knowledge; magic is a tool of the imagination, and it can only be as useful as you're ready to imagine it to be. That's what I was getting at with creativity; all magic you practice will come from within or from another, and each will be equally as startling as the other. Until you set out to do actual magic, we won't know if it would be better for you to use another's magic or your own to begin practicing.
Of course, I deal in raw magic. For lesser types of magic and "safer traditions" there are "knowledge" you can gain in advance of your eventual practice.
Where else would you expect to start magic if not with your own imagination?
>>17314077 In that case, do you know any sources/guides I can refer to in order to know how to start performing magic created from my imagination? Or would it be better to start by doing something else?
>>17312856 >mental belief into a physical creation This is the same thing as a charlie horse. OP be careful with definitions
>>17314077 >Until you set out to do actual magic, we won't know if it would be better for you to use another's magic or your own to begin practicing. OP this is the idea of the Great Work. in Hermeticism, its basically, in my experience, how the temporal forces of time relate to ability.
>>17314127 Also to enhance your waking creativity try making Talismans or Sigils connected to your imagination via Ideas, Bodily Energy States, or in the Case of Gemstones, a particular quality you wish to bring out in yourself.
Talismans are kinda traditional, like in Majutsu, the Oriental Tradition, they just write down symbols and make their own language in sort, most likely how their written language diversified and is so arcane.
There are several tripfags around who actually know a thing or two.
