My studies within the occult and psychic practice have led me to believe that both fields are hopelessly entwined. Psychic methods primary involve little ritual, few tools, and simply the strength of your own will and ability to observe. Much magical practice utilizes these same methods to achieve ends that are often very similar. Scrying mirrors, crystal balls, many crystal practices, the exploration of the chakras, even some spellwork... These are all magical practice that borrow much from psychic concepts or vice versa.
It is, perhaps, best not to speak out against something without knowing why you speak out.
