Magic is forming our world but most people do not know about it. It may take years to learn how to interact with it even for someone talented.
There are different sources / components of magic:
When you cast a spell, there is always Artificial part in it. During your training, you learn to minimize this part but it will always be there.
MeditationTo strengthen your connection, you need to practise.
One of methods to do so, you can meditate.
You learn how to create a spirit (objects made and visible only by magic). At first, the spirit will reflect you but after training, you will be able to focus it to be only (mainly) one color.
To master this, you need to be able to have (at least) 4 spirits (one for each color).
