So, my question remains, does "Do you believe in magic. Do you wear the crimson string. Embrace the energy, let it protect you. On this journey I shall go." represent your understanding of what Kabbalah is?
Rabbi Zalman points to the "annihilation of the desiring self", which is consistent with many other mystical traditions. It would appear that all things are possible, including "magic", at that point.
