To me, magick is nothing more than energy already in existence in the universe that is gathered and directed toward a specific goal.

We spell it with a 'k' to differentiate stage magic (illusions) from actual energy manipulation.

Magic is the stuff people like Copperfield and David Blaine and the like do. Its staged theatrics to make people go "hmmm" and "ahhhh cool neat wow!".

Magick is the working with energies in and around us to create change. Usually change within or around ourselves or our family or close friends.

What is it?
Energy! A force for manifestation.

How does it work?
It focuses our intentions. I believe thought creates reality. Very sharply focused thought creates it faster. The ritual and wording aspect can protect the intentions further by weaving in that it should only be for the highest good of all.

How do you spell it and why?
Varies. Magick mostly. Probably because it reflects more what I think I do, whereas "magic" as others have said, implies staged magic tricks.
