Energy is ever present in the universe and comes in many forms. As living beings, we have different reserves of energy, like mental energy and physical energy. We also have a reserve of psychic energy, which is the kind of energy that goes into magic.

Exercise: Sensing your energy

  1. Rub your hands together to get them sensitive.
  2. Hold your hands out in front of you, with your palms facing each other as if you’re holding a giant beach ball.
  3. Slowly bring your hands together.
  4. At some point, you should feel a very slight springy resistance as the boundaries of your aura touch each other. You may need to repeat this exercise a few times to get used to perceiving this.
  5. Congrats! You now know what psychic energy feels like.

Most people maintain a stable, unchanging level of psychic energy unless it is used or somehow depleted. If this is your first time trying energy magic, be prepared to eat a snack or even take a nap after you’ve practiced, because energy work will make you tired.

Note: A small percentage of people either produce too much psychic energy (energy generator) or are deficient in it (energy vampirism), so your mileage may vary when using personal energy.
