Spirituality for scientific people, science for spiritual people

Spirituality & statistics

Some people believe too much. Others believe too little. With NLP Magick you learn to believe just enough. In the nineteenth century the scientific method became a great success. Infact, so successful that spiritual people gave themselves the motto: “the purpose of religion, the method of science.” In practice, however, this plan did not go beyond keeping a diary. Keeping a diary is obviously not a science yet.

NLP Magick is based entirely on subjective Bayesian statistics. It is constructed so that all the claims we make in NLP Magick can be directly endorsed by scientists. For us magick is highly unlikely and we think that everyone can agree to that. No scientist can be against such a probability judgement. Our secret, however, is that most people think that if something is highly unlikely that it is not wise to do it. Even so, with NLP Magick, that is exactly what we do. We do the highly unlikely.

If you don’t do spirituality, then you miss something. Indeed, it is very likely that our brain in evolutionary terms is able to generate spiritual experiences. Without spiritual experience it would have been difficult for humans to collaborate with groups larger than one hundred and fifty people and still live and work together. Today we have no spiritual need for our society and work. But without spiritual experiences you use your brain only partially and you literally miss out on something wonderful.

Now Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is also not a science at all. But when you realise that NLP really is just a secret code word for hypnosis, and you realize that hypnosis today is completely scientifically recognised, the next step is obvious. When you bring someone with hypnosis into a deep trance, it is many times easier to generate spiritual experiences. That is the secret of NLP Magick.

Where spirituality goes wrong is that spiritual people then attach philosophical conclusions to those experiences. Here the combination of NLP with magick works wonders. Because, in NLP, we never draw such conclusions and we remain at the level of the experience as experience. In other words, with NLP Magick, we believe that you never believe not enough and never believe too much, but always believe just right.

If you want to work with NLP Magick, it is clear that you have to be trained first in hypnosis. If you have no experience in the field of hypnosis, sign up for the upcoming Spiritual NLP Practitioner. When you have already done a NLP Practitioner course, you are welcome to enrol in the NLP Magick – the Universe training. For NLP Master Practitioners there is the NLP Magick – the Magician training.

The difference between the Universe and the Magician

Now that I have participated in the NLP Magick course, the Universe edition, by Licensed NLP Master Trainer™ Kate Benson I can finally answer the most asked question: what is the difference between the Universe and the Magician? Or to be more precise: what is the difference between the Universe edition and the Magician edition of the NLP Magick training?

Before I answer that question let me first stress the similarities. Both editions share the same NLP Magick point of view on reality, spirituality and magick. To be more concrete: Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is only about subjective experience. So NLP Magick is only about the subjective experience of spirituality and magick rather than what is real. Furthermore NLP Magick follows the four forms of spirituality of Subjective Bayesianism where spiritual and magickal experiences are at best a highly likely personal and subjective chance.

Esoteric NLP

Esoteric NLP

The NLP Magick courses are esoteric in nature. It is esoteric NLP. Esoteric means hidden, secret and inside. The opposite of esoteric is exoteric. Exoteric means open, public and outside. In the old days people were esoteric because the church would hunt them down and burn them at the stake. Nowadays it is weird to talk about the esoteric. Every library, bookshop and the internet has plenty of “esoteric” writings out in the open. Nevertheless, the esoteric still exists. Not because people are in fear of being burned alive, but because people in general are likely to misunderstand what is being done.

Nietzsche explains esotoric NLP best when he writes:

Our deepest insights must — and should — appear as follies, and under certain circumstances as crimes, when they are heard unauthorized to the ears of those who are not disposed and predestined for them. The exoteric and the esoteric, as they were formerly distinguished by philosophers — among the Indians, as among the Greeks, Persians, and Muslims, in short, wherever people believed in gradations of rank and not in equality and equal rights — are not so much in contradistinction to one another in respect to the exoteric class, standing without, and viewing, estimating, measuring, and judging from the outside, and not from the inside; the more essential distinction is that the class in question views things from below upwards — while the esoteric class views things from above downwards. There are heights of the soul from which tragedy itself no longer appears to operate tragically; and if all the woe in the world were taken together, who would dare to decide whether the sight of it would necessarily seduce and constrain to sympathy, and thus to a doubling of the woe? That which serves the higher class of men for nourishment or refreshment, must be almost poison to an entirely different and lower order of human beings. The virtues of the common man would perhaps mean vice and weakness in a philosopher; it might be possible for a highly developed man, supposing him to degenerate and go to ruin, to acquire qualities thereby alone, for the sake of which he would have to be honored as a saint in the lower world into which he had sunk. There are books which have an inverse value for the soul and the health according as the inferior soul and the lower vitality, or the higher and more powerful, make use of them. In the former case they are dangerous, disturbing, unsettling books, in the latter case they are herald’s calls which summon the bravest to their bravery. Books for the general reader are always ill-smelling books, the odour of paltry people clings to them. Where the populace eat and drink, and even where they reverence, it is accustomed to stink. One should not go into churches if one wishes to breathe pure air.

Koshas : 5 Layers of Being


Koshas is an important part of yoga. According to the yoga tradition, every one of us has five bodies, which yogis describe as increasingly finer grades of energy. The NLP Magick adaptation of the Taittiriya Upanishad says:

Kosha 1: “Human beings consist of a material body built from what they eat, drink and breathe. Depending on what you eat, drink or breathe more or less health follows.”

Kosha 2: “Inside our cells there is another body, the mitochondria. They fill the physical cells. Health and longevity are the result of healthy mitochondria as they are the source of physical life.

Kosha 3: “Then there is mental life. The better you are at controlling how and what your brain feels, imagines, reflects, smells and tastes, the less stress, fear, anger and sadness follows. And the more relaxation, confidence, peace of mind and pleasure consequently follow. Continue reading Koshas : 5 Layers of Being
