We can assume that humans were the first species to ever develop self- consciousness. This radical new form of awareness made humans true reflections of the Infinite All.
Since humans are aware of their inner world and it’s workings, it means that they are perhaps the first species on the planet that can consciously manipulate reality. This new self- awareness also meant that they were the first species to ‘do’ spiritual practice, to consciously become more than they are, to consciously evolve spiritually.
In the Bible it says that humans were made in the image of God. It also says that humans were given dominion over all of the animals, plants, everything. Humans are reflections of God because their self- awareness allows them to be creator gods. They can consciously create reality, they can consciously dive into their inner world and contact spirits and other entities, they can contact their inner world and gain insights and ideas.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
So what is a magician? Surely everybody has this self- awareness, it surely means that everyone is a magician. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that self awareness makes somebody the potential to become a magician.
A magician is a person that has a keen awareness of their own being. Since they are truly aware that they are creator gods, that they create their own reality and that their world. Most humans are not aware or at least deny their own godhood. They get up, go to work, get home, eat, watch tv and then go to bed… and then repeat, repeat, repeat. They do not take advantage of the possibilities available to them by being incarnated as a human being.
Since magicians know that they create reality and have a deep awareness of their own being I personally believe that this gives them a responsibility in helping to serve mankind, to guide it in the right direction as consciousness develops and we emerge from our home on planet earth and become more than human. I think that a good magician not only knows their right to manifest their reality and develop spiritually but also to bring others to a deeper understanding of themselves by understanding the inner and outer universe(s).
