Conscious attempts to direct or control the unconscious. underlying, or even spiritual forces of your being.

The child mind in us might see almost any process of life as magic. Also love has what some call a magical quality, as we often feel completely changed when the spell of it is upon us. See: BlackMagic; Left.

Might be the wish to accomplish something without effort or difficulty; desire to control situations; without knowing the underlying processes, our mind and emotions do things which appear as magic. To the child mind in us all, growth from a cellular speck to becoming a person is pure magic. Magic also represents the power of unconscious sexuality and how it can be hurt, bewitched, or we are controlled by it.

Because the unconscious will use any belief system or cultural symbols we have absorbed to express a theme, the powerful images of witches or evil characters we see on films or in fiction are often used to depict important experiences. For example a dream in which a spell or curse is placed on one can portray the influence a painful experience has left on one’s emotions. If you had been deeply hurt while in your mother’s arms, your unconscious would equate pain with being held close by a woman. This ‘cross wiring’ of associations could meaningfully be portrayed as a ‘spell’ which makes one feel frightened in the apparently loving situation.

But whenever we dream the images are not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but is an image like on a cinema screen that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear. So all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind.

Magic words: Usually dreamt as a form of protection against the fears you are not master of, or else to give a form or magic power – in other words call forth the power of the unconscious.

Magical implements: Things such as wands or rings are all means of producing confidence in the magic we all have but do not usually believe in.

The magical Mass: The flesh of the hero or messiah would have given the magic power of fearlessness to those who ate this sacred meal. Therefore the person would have been killed, torn apart, and the flesh eaten and would have been like seeds of the new life, the new consciousness, which would take away the fear of death. We see this ritualised in Christianity where the body and blood of the saviour are consumed.

Woman’s magic: Adornment on men and women were probably first worn in ancient times when an attractive stone hung upon ones person caught the attention of others, so could be thought of as woman’s magic – probably to get a better man. The same with men, to show how different they were and as sign of being important. In today’s world they can signify the attention given to a woman, the memories attached to what is worn, or to attract attention as with rings in ones lips or nose.

Example: I felt immediately in love with this man, bronze skin, deep dark and noble eyes. We couldn’t stop looking to each other, like magic we make a bond and started to dance slowly a ballad, not music at all in the scene. I was so excited, and confused, the love I felt for that horse transform to more love now that he was a man, and same to him.

Love is a magic dreams can show us and open in us. It is our own magic that we usually deny we have, and it takes entry into our inner world to know and appreciate it.

 Example: I felt at the time, and still believe it correct, that I had fallen asleep yet remained awake. Waking, critical awareness had been taken through the magic doors of sleep into a universe it seldom ever sees – deep dreamless sleep.


Useful Questions and Hints:

Do I feel I have magic powers that other’s do not possess?

What was the magic I was facing or doing?

Do I understand what the magic was I was involved in out of symbols?

What confidence in my own magic of love or ability do I feel I lack?

Hi , every 5-7 days i dream about magic. This was the 4th time. In every dream i am using a wand or my hands to do magic and in the end my magic doesnt work and the dream ends when i am trying to make it work by shaking my wand , trying again etc. Though every dream is different , this part is the same.

this is my cousins dream, but she wants to know the meaning of it. she and two others are being chased by a mob. as she is running she and the other two are chanting 12312. her friends are trying to stop her. but all they are saying are 12312. they believe its a past life or something like that. also they were like witches or something. so the 12312 thing was a spell.

    Ali – The dream is an example of the mistaken ideas most people have about dreams. Dream images are not like real life, because a dream is nothing like outer life where things could hurt you, but a dream is an image like on a cinema screen that even if a gun is pointed at you and fired it can do no damage – except if you run in fear. So all the things that scare you are simply your own fears projected onto the screen of your sleeping mind.

    So she is living in an inner world in which she is haunted and bewitched by her own beliefs. See and

I look out the window up towards the night sky out of my left view something fly’s out the sky shaped like a jet but wider’ I look ,feel amazed Its a spaceship!! I recall other things soaring the sky an animal/s? (elephant ? ) laughs well things not normally In the sky In waking state ! at same time other things come soaring from the sky like magic ,I turn right as I do something round forms grayish/cloudy as the moon.It kept forming Into a ball/circle and I think ‘wow ‘ as I realized It was heading directly towards me forming Itself Into a yellowish orange color . upon approach magical twinkling
stars shimmered over It as It came directly at me while standing at the window, as I took a step back , upon contact ‘amazed’ the ball hit lower than my window ,on a sill or something and burst almost like butter melts or dissolves and It disappeared. I was In a wow state and notice two other people were with me In the room and told them to look ,and they saw the remaining magic In the sky still going on person went towards the window,I felt anxious sort of at that move And said please don’t go too close ‘ at that moment I felt’ not saw’ the window was to wide opened and felt the person might fall out’ I think?! so he? backed away a bit… soon I woke up thinking magical,no anxiety or sadness ‘more like smiling.
I don’t know If this Is Interpable ,still I’ll cherish the moment.

Thank you Mr. crisp for listening:

    Hi Deb – This sounds like the song ‘Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket, save it for a rainy day.’
    But what a pity the star/light didn’t quite reach you. I think if it had reached you, then it would have really wowed you, because that is like Pentecost when the ball of light touched their heads – illumination.

    So I hope you do cherish it and bring it back – often.


      -deb 2010-09-26 20:50:04

      Thank you ,Mr.crisp for responding and I’m further amazed and Intriged by your thoughts. now I wanna go resarch ‘to catch a falling star . And learn more about the pentecost ..
      I truly will treasure my experience ,Thank you very much again :
      Bless you!

      I dreamt of a 7 year old girl who walks into a room and opens a book that has black blank pages and as looks into it two golden words emerge out of it magically towards her .the words are RAZZLE DAZZLE. Coulld you please add some insight to it? I will greatly appreciate it! Thanks

        -Tony Crisp 2015-02-08 14:21:15

        Ashoo – I love the site that you put the link on but I have to delete it.

        The dreams of young children are often so open and so her images are without and disguise. The book represent a learning process that she is meeting and probably enjoying. Books for children are magical and can open completely new worlds and are an introduction to their own inner world of imagination.

        The blank pages are black, showing that they are unknowable until the words are seen and understood. Black usually suggest ones unconscious – which is also the source of our processes of life, which remain unknown until we become aware that we are always physically moved by life in our breathing and heartbeat. So black is behind everything, a mystery.

        I would love to know where she heard or read the words Razzle Dazzle. So I have to guess that they are a sort of magic phrase that is difficult to define – except that they have a wonderful and magical sound. So I think they suggest – and yes I looked them up in the dictionary – the young girls own magic of imagination when she learns and reads. See


          -Ashoo Modgil 2015-09-04 6:38:32

          Thanks Tony for interpreting my dream! To answer your question about where did the girl read the words Razzle Dazzle, I would say she read them as they magically began to pop out in golden letters from the black blank pages of the book she was looking at.
