Is the occult the power of suggestion in your own mind?

Could be. Occult means hidden.
What is the color of magic?

I keep telling myself that it is, but then I fail to believe me...

Are you asking if "real magick" is real in an external sense, or merely placebo effect?
It's definitely the latter, but may also involve some of the former.

Do you believe in psi, chi, or psychics, at all?

I believe in intuition,also a good hypothesis.Studying forensic science and how they examine things helps in this "psychic" work.Those are the things I've learned so far. Can someone tell me more?

tell you more? There is an old saying: "Those who know do not speak of it, those speak of it, do not truly know..."

My advice to you is to try it out yourself. Experience it for yourself and see if, at the end of your experiment, you still have any belief in the occult or in psychic powers.

Have fun!

Placebo? On another note, wasn't that one of those tenors?

As stated occult means hidden, but it goes deeper than that I feel. The Occult is the search for those most ancient of truths that are hidden, it is the reality of the mysteries that we with are magic are trying to portray. How we choose to uncover that is another thing. But there is something to remeber, when turning over stones on the river bed of the unknown, we do not always like what we find, and this is something I feel needs considering when creating magic, sometimes we go to deep and our audiences do not like what we have discovered.

Be Blessed
