Esoteric School Discovery Guide to Magic – Part II

You may be familiar with the esoteric principle that a small change in the present can create a larger change in the future, but it's also true in magical principles that a small change in the present makes a larger change in the present. Small changes can have a great impact and by changing some small habit you have, you pave the way for larger changes in your future and your present life can change. In other words, magic happens in baby steps. It's like the idea that a butterfly can flap it wings in one area of the world, and create massive effects in a place on the other half of the world.

Magical Baby Steps
Making tiny changes can have a large impact because they change your habitual thought patterns enough to allow you to access a whole new scope of ideas and inspirations and since they are small changes you are not as likely to run into the resistance that often comes with change. Why is it important from a magical perspective to be able to change your habitual thought patterns? Abraham-Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com) explains this well by saying that your ability to access certain thoughts and feelings depends on the thoughts and feelings you have now. In other words, the happier you are, the more happy thoughts you are able to access. The more depressed you are, the more depressed, sad and blue type thoughts you have. Adjusting your stance just a bit gives you access to a whole new scope of thoughts and feelings. Making any small change in your habits shifts you to this new stance and what you are able to think and feel.

Reduce Resistance Factor
Making these small changes also reduces the chance of resistance to change that we can encounter. Large changes tend to make us uncomfortable and doubt ourselves. We become self-conscious wondering how the change will make us appear to others and if they will accept the change or not. For example, how would you feel if you went to work one day not in the conservative type suits you normally wear, but in some on the edge, brightly colored fashion design totally out of character with your usual style of dress? Compare that to a less noticeable change of maybe moving your pinky ring from your right hand to your left hand. The smaller change would probably cause you less concern, less resistance and be more comfortable for you. This smaller change is probably something that no one else will even notice. But you will notice it. You will notice the feel of it on your finger, the sound it makes tapping on your desk, that it is there when you pick up the phone and so on. The fact that you have made a small change that you are comfortable with and that is noticeable to you will shift the place you're standing inside yourself. Give some thought to the small changes you can make that will accomplish this shift for you. A few examples to get you started include:
  • use a different hand to do an activity than you normally would (ie. – open door, brush teeth, eating)
  • wear socks wrong side out
  • sit in a different seat at the dinner table
  • get up on opposite side of the bed

You get the idea, right? So pick some small changes and get started on your way to changing your habitual thought patterns to open the way for magical changes in your life. After all a small change in the present not only makes changes in the present but also in your future. It's never too late and nothing is pre-determined. Making any small change now can drastically change what you experience in the future and now.

Esoteric School Discovery Guide to Magic – Part I

There is no problem that cannot be solved magically. At the level of life, we sometimes paint ourselves into a corner, get that feeling that there is "no way out." Say goodbye to the feeling of hopelessness. Magic is all about reaching up to a higher level of life, and higher beings, for whom miracles are everyday occurrences. As Einstein said, the solution to any problem never exists on the same level. The solution exists on the next level up.

Here are three basic rituals that you can try out for yourself to connect with the higher and reach up for a higher level of life.

Today – Begin working with the Universe as a co-creator. Take the first step by making contact and ask the Universe to manifest something today, from cherries to the word NASA. For more on how to do this see the blog article here.

This Week - Ask Owl about a loophole or blind spot in your current solution. Not sure how to work with the Spirit of Owl? Check out this article.

This Month – Do a come-along with a Sun Candle reinforced by a talisman and a mantra you create. Add the talisman and mantra onto the come along when you burn the Sun Candle for 30 minutes each day. Haven't done a come-along before? See the directions in this article.

By starting to use these simple daily rituals and work them into your life, you will begin establishing a magical relationship with the Universe and higher level beings. You will soon find that by making these a part of your everyday life the level of your own being will increase. And magically speaking you know that the level of your being attracts the level of your life. That's a well-known magical principle. So the higher your being, the higher the level of life you will attract. That's how magic works!

For more daily rituals get our Daily Rituals for Attracting What you Want in Life ebook. 36 more simple daily rituals offered in it will help keep you on the path of magical discovery.

5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part IV

The past few blog articles have been the beginning of this series in which we have discussed how daily rituals, like those found in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook, can help us stay connected with the Universe and higher beings to become co-creators in getting what we want in life. Master teachers have taught the principle for ages that you need only ask the Universe and prepare yourself to receive as it delivers. There are 5 main reasons that we've identified that people aren't able to follow this simple principle and get all that they want.  Three of these reasons we covered in depth in the first 3 parts of this series. Here we will explore another of those reasons, "Negativity is Popular". In the next article we will cover the last reason and then turn it over to you to see what you think. You'll also have a chance to receive a magical gift from us for putting in your two cents.

As a reminder, the top 5 reasons we've identified are:
1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

Negativity is Popular

Your first reaction to this may be, "What!? I'm not attracted to negativity!" But think about what sells in our society. You occasionally see a nice human interest story on the news, but most of it is all about the negative things going on. Same with movies, TV shows and workplace gossip. All these things that attract people and their attention are in the negative realms. If you have studied metaphysical principles then you are probably familiar with the one that says we attract to our lives that which we focus on and put our attention towards. Our thoughts and feelings (negative and positive) attract the people and events that we have in our lives. The simple solution therefore would be to only have positive thoughts and feelings and only attract positive things, right? There's where the problem lies. Since we are surrounded by negative influences and perhaps even ridiculed as being a Pollyanna if we don't join in, it is difficult to stay in a positive space. We may not even be consciously aware of all the negativity that surrounds us since it is so prevalent that we have just grown accustomed to it.

The Good News

Luckily we can use daily rituals to move ourselves away from negative influences and attract people and events that have the same positive outlook that we embrace. Doing daily rituals can give us the courage and confidence to be in the positive flow of consciousness instead of a negative one. Being in this state also nourishes the part of us that can remember our dreams and feel in alignment with them. Putting in a little time every day to connect with the Universe and higher beings will go a long way towards being able to stay in a positive frame and give up the addiction to negativity.

5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part III

In Part I and Part II of this series we discussed how daily rituals, like those found in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook, can help us connect with the Universe and higher beings to create manifestations of everything we want in life. This magical truth has been taught by master teachers for ages and it's all about simply asking the Universe and preparing ourselves to receive the delivery. We've identified 5 main reasons however that people aren't able to follow this simple recipe for getting everything they want and covered two of them in depth. Here in Part III of the series we explore another of those reasons, "We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life".

As a reminder, the top 5 reasons we've identified are:
1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

Over the next few weeks, we'll explore the other reasons on our list. Then it will be your turn to give some input on what you think about these reasons and have a chance to receive a magical gift from us.

We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
Most people go through life in a pretty mechanical state rather than living in consciousness. We are so hypnotized by our daily lives with our schedules, commitments, to-do lists, etc. that we don't consciously create. Test it out for yourself and take a few minutes first thing in the morning and last thing at night to observe your thoughts. You will probably find they are about what you have to do today, or things that happened to you during the day. The big desires and dreams that you have probably aren't part of those thoughts. We go through our routines, our have-to's and shoulds almost like robots. Have you ever been driving to work and suddenly realize you are there without remembering the drive hardly at all. Talk about mechanical and robotic!

The Magical Solution
Taking the time to make daily rituals a priority in our lives allow us to create contact with Spirit and keep that contact going all day. Spirit is the keeper of our dreams, desires and lessons we came to Earth in physical bodies to learn. That part of ourselves that stays in touch with our spirit path and goes through our lives daily with purpose and meaning needs to be nurtured. Daily rituals don't have to be real time consuming or complicated and making them a priority allows us to break out of the mechanical state and become Spirit-led and achieve our dreams. You can magically break out of the hypnotic state of life, live more consciously and become a co-creator with the Universe to get everything you want.
