Here is the secret.
Do the magic moves for real over and over.
Boredom is the teacher.
Then, as you do the move for real watch your hands, watch the position of your shoulders, consider what your eyes do, etc.
Do the moves for hours.
Then your body will know the right moves as you do the false moves and you can correct.
Curiously, even odd moves will become natural and invisible to the audience.
You probably know this already. Just do it.
Magic Al. Say it fast and it is magical.

I think you misunderstood my thoughts about Intention of Reality.

It is not believing a coin is there.
It is about creating a coin there via intention.

You know there is no coin there. You believe there is no coin there. But there is a coin there that you have intended there.
While this may sound silly the idea is that every fabric of you existence communicates the presence of a coin.
In that picture there is only one thing missing: the coin.
Magic Al. Say it fast and it is magical.

Thank you Al! I believe I have the distinction now. It is a "philosophical" one, but like creating a backstory for your character in acting, you foment what you desire.
