A lot of the Westen ritual magic feels a bit false, play-acting. And I think that's 'cos it's coming from a "made up" tradition, that's only a hundred years old, and doesn't have organic roots. If you do some of this stuff, and compare it to,tantric or Buddhist practice, the difference is palpable. There's an internal logic that makes sense.
It's a bodily energetic exercise. You vibrate different god names at different locations in the body, accompanied by visualisations. It's one of those things that can get a bit.... surprising. I've never done the MP as an extended practice, but I've done parallel things. Pretty sure if you did it for a while, it'd shift things around a bit.

I think I visualise quite strongly. Sometimes with eyes closed I feel i can literally see things I imagine, but I think a lot of people get that. I have astigmatism in one eye and I often think how things like that shape your perceptions of the world beyond just forming an image of the immediate environment
