A magic doll

What is sympathetic magic? I suppose a succinct explanation is that it is the magical power of PRETEND.

The most famous form of sympathetic magic may be the ‘VOODOO DOLL’, where you make a doll, pretend it represents your target, likely reinforce your pretending with a ‘psychic link’ (a physical thing that relates to the target, a strand of their hair, a fingernail clipping, a photo..etc) built into your doll. And now that you have a representation of your target, pretending that this is your target, you can manipulate the doll to heal or injure and it may IMPACT YOUR TARGET the same way!

The ‘Voodoo Doll’ is simply the most culturally ubiquitous form of sympathetic magic. The idea of sympathetic magic touches almost every other form of magic.

For example when masturbating to launch a sigil, not only does the orgasm deliver a powerful form of ‘gnosis’, the sex act is ALSO sympathetic magic to ‘give life’ to your desire! When creating a servitor, or thought form, with a sigil, giving ‘life’ is more explicit and the sympathetic magic of sex orgasm makes even more sense.

Magical Pretend is a very big category, it is a set that includes visualization, childlike play, and folk magic.

Visualization is confirmed to be as good or almost as good as actual practice in sports, this has been tested and confirmed with the rigors of scientific method. Turning the brain to thinking of doing a task seems to turn on the learning capacity of the brain as much as doing the task.

For purposes of magic, I’d suggest that the most magical part of yourself is atavistic, is is a more primal and stupider self, and often rudderless given a conscious mind sending it conflicting messages. Sympathetic magic is a way to give it a clear communication, as well as a LICENSE to do what it can do.

This reflects my paradigm, not the ‘truth’. The truth is that sympathetic magic is ubiquitous because it works!

And folk magic is where sympathetic magic can be overt, the Doctrine of Signatures itself is one application of sympathetic magic, Foot track magic, the colors of candles..etc – all are applications of sympathetic magic. And Folk magic is often a paradigm where people pay money for magical results and expect a return on that money. In that sense we see sympathetic magic tested and a proof of concept.

The Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation, that the biscuit and wine taken at Eucharist literally becomes the body and blood of Christ once consumed – falls into a sympathetic magic category.

The play of children is also sympathetic magic. Playing with dolls representing the children you may raise, or dolls representing masculine or feminine ideals that you yourself might become. It is no accident that horror movies relate to children as fearsome and frightening. Children are natural magicians!
