Magick spelt with a "k" is often used to differentiate spiritual magic practice, from the magic that magicians perform on stage.
"Magick" is the power of our will, combined with the need of our desire, FOCUSED INTO MANIFESTING THAT DESIRE. (This makes prayers, blessings, and spells a form of magick.)
In this sense, psychologists and scientists have their own words for what magick is. Neuro-linguistic programming, cognitive behavioural therapy, and so on, all have their part in focusing our will and strength of mind. Life coaching can do the same; motivational training; these are all forms of magick. One day, I'm sure, "magick" will have its official scientific explanation, but I hope it never does. Really and truly, I hope it never does.
"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."
