Certified Master-Level Development


Let the Genie Out of the Bottle

Manques Magique is the hidden magic.  Before all religions, before all belief systems period there was "La Magie".  From every corner of the known world, the powers of Creation were laid at the feet of man to use to master the world through forces, manifestation and miracles.  As cultures began to embrace the true "Means" many controversies eventually ensued,  Some practices, perhaps most, became hidden, even forgotten.  And so man began his downward spiral of dependency on his one mind and wit.  


Release the Bonds to Your Hidden Magic

See, hear and do things you never thought were possible.  Learn the old ways of "Owning Your Power."

But there are ALWAYS those who remain in charge of the Ancient Wisdom.    And "la magie", the original abandoned term for Magick is represented as "Manques Magique", the hidden magic.  Man has reached the limits of the physical brain and does once again acknowledge the the "the Means" to the transformative impossible is still in our grasp, it's just not in our heads.  Let us show you the old ways, the many and varied ways that allowed man to roam the Earth as Gods, with powers to conquer all adversities, and to explore the latent potential of human form to become beings of Magick.

Brilliant Magic Sparkles with Wisdom

Let's Get Serious!

 Magic is not of this world, but then, not much really is. We are limited-perspective “beings” constrained by conventional physical reality, which is itself imposed upon us by the two mechanisms of the Conscious and then the Sub-Conscious mind. 

Though these default means of existence have their advantages and usefulness in this world intended to be the “Cause” of things, it is most pointedly NOT the means of any sub-dimension of our world, or any realm (or “Plane”) above us.  The realm of Causation was intended to be a creative starting place that could initiate without limitation - but WE WERE supposed to go out and do something with our creations.


Change is Magick

Up front I suggested a word, …“default” We can continue to be underwater seaweed polyps, or we can develop the skill set to function in the true Reality. That reality is actually more normal than ours, varied, limitless and capable of things beyond our imagination. The common and consistent undercurrent for “change” is what we here call “Magick”, a mere word that suggests something “unknowable.” In truth, it is simply the undiscovered knowledge. “the Hidden Magic.” Manques Magique.

There is something else that goes hand-in-hand with the blend of forces and matter in all spaces beyond this regulated dominion of our realism, “lightness.” It is already well-expressed in public vernacular that we are animated sentient beings of an ecosphere of subjective density. 

That you can put definition to anything in Nature and the Cosmos imposes an inherent finiteness on its value and purpose.  Everything is a "potential," regardless how it is expressed in the moment.  Magick was created for us to rise above any limitation imposed by life and man.  But, do we believe in magick?  No.  We believe in nothing.

We perceive the world that we WANT to call reality from inside a minuscule bubble that hangs like a polyp on a ribbon of ocean seaweed. Swaying to and fro at the whim of the universal ocean, NOT our own minds or volition; and certainly not our latent potential of awareness of a much grander Creation. 

Though we are aware of some vast Sea of existence, we define it in total from our isolated point of observation. Nothing could be further from the truth. In that incalculable massiveness, inconceivable means of force, power, transformation, wellness, mutation, matter and even subsequent creation are a norm called “Nature.” Our use of the word is a debasing insult to the works of God.

Our Course In Miracles

There Was Always Magic

 The Manques Magique is a direct translation of “the Magic that is Hidden.” Hidden, however, does not mean it does not exist.

All cultures of the Old World eventually went to great lengths to obscure the power of their magic. They also firmly believed in these astounding evidences of greater spiritual forces about us than we ourselves possess. Each culture worked tirelessly, endlessly, to master the ancient ways of the sages and mages. It was the closest evidence of a great unknowable presence in the Universe that was capable of all things. Such power was considered a potential “gift” for the use of Mankind, or whatever superior “Race” emerged such that they could be in control of their own destiny.

The ancient world did not know of our Science, or the physical properties of the Universe. They did not have awareness of what has come to be known as medicine and healing. They had not harnessed great power to change Nature itself as we do now with magnetism, electricity, nuclear power, weather manipulation and the flow of water. Yet, THEY DID have potentially that means to accomplish all of these things – this was the power of Magick.

Magic would eventually be sought as a means to both wage war and win wars. It could be used for great religious battles. It could overcome plagues, volcanic activity and bombardments from outer space. It became more and more useful, more valuable, and there was an ever increasing need to keep one’s particular magic secret.

Great things cannot be kept secret forever. There are needs. Any man-made approaches to life are inherently limited, and once again, eventually, the magic of old must resurface. Man now finds himself once again in need of the means …to do the impossible.


The Manques Magique course builds upon an ancient Giant Alter of wisdom.
