Magic 2012 - Need a Good Read?

Sometimes we just need to read for the "brain candy" value of a paperback book. For those of us who want to do magic 2012, though, we need to take in reading material from "higher influences" on a regular basis. This helps us remember why we are here and what we chose to do on this planet during this amazing magical year.

Magic 2012 -  A Sample Bookshelf
So what can you read to feed yourself on all levels? Well, a magical bookshelf might include but is definitely NOT limited to some of these items:

  • "Bringers of the Dawn" by Barbara Marciniak (written in 1992 but totally true today)
  • Abraham-Hicks' Daily Quote via email 
  • "Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky" by Maurice Nicoll
  • "Medicine Cards" by Sams and Carson
  • Any number of magical ebooks from the Esoteric School 
  • "In Search of the Miraculous" by P. D. Ouspensky
  • "Magic in Theory and Practice" by Aleister Crowley (a classic if there ever was one for magic 2012!!)
  • "Fools Crow" by Thomas E. Mails
  • "Iron John" by Robert Bly
  • "A First-Rate Madness: Uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness" by S. Nassir Ghaemi

What are you reading to take in spiritual food? We would love to hear from you! Please share with us on Facebook:

Magic 2012: Need Magic? 5 Steps to Follow

During this pivotal year, some people are experiencing more magic and wonder than ever ... and lots more people are having difficulty with magic in 2012. They are experiencing more "accidents" than ever, and need more angelic and higher help than ever.

Luckily, if you fall into that second unfortunate group, you can easily switch over to the first group with some practical magic 2012. In 2012, the practice of magic is really all about looking at the part YOU play in your life. It's about "keeping your side of the street clean," as they say. The more you work on yourself with magic 2012, the faster your environment will change (and the fewer surprise accidents you will encounter!).

And, we have 5 steps to help you make the transition from under the "Law of Accident" and move under the "Law of Fate."

Magic 2012: Step 1
The first step in making this transition is to identify the problem. Specifically, ask yourself this question: "What am I allowing to happen in my life?"

Are you allowing yourself to be a victim? Are you saying Yes when you want to say No? Are you letting stress into your life, whether it's real or imagined?

For many people, the situation is about allowing other people to step into their personal or sacred space. For instance, the woman who is allowing herself to be abused (verbally, physically or emotionally) by her spouse is allowing another person to enter her sacred space ... without permission.

Once the problem is clearly identified and acknowledged, you can move to step 2.

Magic 2012: Step 2
The second step may be either the easiest or the most difficult, depending on your personality type. The second step is this: Make a decision to change.

Some people will breeze right through this step. Other people will hit a total road block because they won't know all the steps for making the change, and thus cannot allow themselves to make the decision to change.

Know this: You do NOT need to know the "how" of the change before you make a decision to change. Magically, making a decision to change is called the "base decision," and, in the Creation Sequence, comes before the "how" decisions. The more detailed decisions of "how" you will make the change are called "control decision" and do not need to be known at this point.

All you have to do is be willing to make the base decision that you will change. You do not have to have any clue or idea of how that change will come about.

For this step, the woman being abused by her spouse simply needs to decide that she will change her life. She knows her life will be different after the change, but that's all.

Magic 2012: Step 3
In this step we start looking at the control decisions to go along with the base decision to change. For this step, may we suggest that you look at these magic 2012 resources to help you start the change:

See something that resonates with you? Go with it. See several items that ring your bell? Go with them! If it feels right, in magic 2012 it IS right! For the woman allowing herself to be abused by her spouse, choosing to ask the directions for help by doing the Navajo Beauty Way may be the way to go.

Magic 2012: Step 4
Now comes the step that can be difficult for the impatient people in the crowd: waiting in mystery. Most of us don't even like to wait in line at the coffee shop, so when it comes to making a major change in our lives, waiting is like Chinese water torture!

Luckily, in 2012 changes are happening faster than ever before. Also, if you wait "in mystery" rather than "in misery" changes will also occur in a speedier fashion!

It's perfectly fine to have no idea how the magical rituals or techniques you have chosen for making life changes work. In fact, it's great to be in a place of wonderment and imagination. Think to yourself often, "I wonder how the Universe is going to bring about this change?" Be a very curious seeker about mystery (schools like ours are not called mystery schools for nothing!). Wonder often. Imagine and daydream lots. All of this curiosity and mystery will act as a tractor beam that will literally DRAW the universal solution to you – fast! It will happen before you know it.

The abused woman, our continuing example, may wish to get up a few minutes early, do the Navajo Beauty Way, and then daydream about the changes that will happen in her life during her morning coffee. Every day she can choose a different daydream ... no matter, the Universe gets the message that she wishes to have her sacred space. And the Universe ALWAYS delivers!

Magic 2012: Step 5
Finally we come to the step of waiting and listening. Step 4 already has us waiting in mystery and drawing the solution to ourselves. This is all well and good. Now we must listen as well because the Universe will provide clues and nudges along the way, telling us how we must move and act.

If a snippet of a conversation between strangers seems especially loud, listen hard. If you open a magazine in the supermarket checkout line and a headline pops out at you, read it and ponder it. If a book falls off a shelf, read it! Get it?

If you feel that you are getting no clues from the Universe, go out and tell the Universe, "I know you are sending me messages and for some reason I cannot understand them. Please send them to me in a louder, clearer form that I can more easily understand." Keep sending the Universe this message until you get the clues and nudges you seek in your magic 2012 practice! Don't worry, the Universe does NOT mind repetition.

Note: If you are the truly obsessive type, the best thing you can do during this step is to go away on vacation and distract yourself. Obsessing never helps ... that's too intense and far beyond curiosity and mystery. For your personality, the magic of distraction is what you need! And a vacation should be fun ... just what the Universe ordered!

Get it? Got it? Good!

Help from the Universe – Getting Your Share!

Help from the Universe ... so many people need it these days. People doing the best they can to cope with mental and emotional stress, unemployment, the energy of 2012, and worry about the economy.

Most people need help from the Universe but have no idea how to go about getting some. They have no clue how to ask the universe for help.

No worries ... magic is real and the Universe does want to help! You just have to ask, and there are so many forms of asking.

Help from the Universe – Why You Don't Get Any
The big secret of getting help from the Universe isn't a big secret at all: the Universe already knows that you need help ... all you have to do is ask.

For instance, if you are low on money and want to ask the Universe for help filling your checking account, no worries. Help from the Universe is only a question away. You can ask your question using some magical tribal form, or you can ask during a meditation ... or you can just go outside and shout for help.

It all works! The Universe isn't deaf or dumb ... it's just waiting for you to ask for help. Yup, you heard me. The "missing link" in all of this is that most of the time we forget to ask the Universe for help.

Why? Because usually we are too busy sitting on the pity pot, too crazy working our fingers to the bone, or too preoccupied with the fact that the Universe doesn't care about little 'ole us down here.

Well ... get over it!

Help from the Universe – How to Ask
You, of course, can pick any method for asking and getting help from the Universe. The Universe is very flexible and willing, so almost any form will do. Even the occasional temper tantrum works well ... at least it has for plenty of us who have tempers!

But, if you're not into temper tantrums, here is a sure-fire way to get help from the Universe.

Write, Light, and Be Bright!

1. Write
First, write down what you want as precisely as possible while still allowing the Universe some flexibility in delivering on your desires. For instance, if you need some money, write down a range of dates by which you would like for money to arrive. Write down a range of dollars, such as "between $1,000 and $2,000." Be sure to specify that the money should be "legally free and clear with no penalties" and that there should be no death or loss of property as a result of the Universe granting this request!

2. Light
Next, put the paper on a plate under a Sun Yellow candle. Put the whole shebang in front of you as you sit in the South facing North. Light the candle with a paper or wooden match. When the flame has settled into a tall and steady state, cup your hands around the flame and say this verse in a voice of command:

"Child of Wonder,
Child of Flame,
Nourish My Spirit
And Bring My Aim!"

You can repeat the phrase three to seven times if you like. Leave the candle burning for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. At the end of that time, blow out the candle. Blowing rather than snuffing the flame "sends" your request to the Universe. Repeat this ritual every single day for 30-40 days.

3. Be Bright
While the Universe is working on delivering your request, your job (aside from doing the Sun Candle Ritual) is to be bright. In other words, keep an open mind and open heart. Look for possible signs that your request is coming to you. Appreciate where you are. Avoid being a Doubting Thomas. Find as much peace and joy as you can find.

Be bright ... the Universe has a much easier time delivering to a bright and joyful recipient. After all, one of our "jobs" on this planet is to "sound a joyous note to Creator's ear" (according to the Hopis). So you do your job of being bright and performing the ritual, and you will get help from the Universe without a doubt.

Amaze and surprise yourself by following these directions. Magic is real and it does work. Getting help from the Universe isn't difficult ... and it's so much more fun than sitting on the pity pot!

Magic 2012 – Don't Second Guess the Universe

If there was ever a time when the Universe is handing out signals and signs loud and clear, it's this year. Yup, it's all about Magic 2012.

If you ask a question of the Universe this year, expect the answer to come fast, hard, and clear. This is what is so neat about Magic 2012 ... there may be a lot of chaos and craziness going on, but at the same time the magic is so loud and clear!

Magic 2012 and Second Guessing
If you get an answer from the Universe during this year, go with it. Don't second guess the answer the Universe sends you lest you get dumped into the pot with the other Doubting Thomases!

The Universe is happy to provide answers, but not if you keep asking the same question over and over, expecting different results (this, by the way, is the definition of insanity in many 12-step programs!).

For example, my wife adopts and trains wild mustangs from BLM. She had seen a lovely filly in an online adoption and was wondering whether she should try to adopt the horse. She was open to question. So she asked the Universe in a very precise way.

That she asked with precision is important because magic is a precision science. She decided that if she were able to adopt the filly for a bid of $150 or less, the Universe was telling her to "go for it!" My wife filled out an online application and was approved. On the day of the adoption, she was the first one to bid on the filly. Within 5 minutes, 6 people had bid the filly up past the $150 limit.

No question there as to what the Universe is saying, right?

Magic 2012: When Should You Change Your Mind? 
This example is not to say that when practicing Magic 2012 you should become rigid and unyielding. If new information comes to light, then you can do what is called a "stop-change-start." In other words, stop the direction in which you were headed, make a change (ask the Universe a new question), and start the whole process over again.

Make sense? Magic in the year 2012 is pretty intense, so it's good to keep things clear and simple in your mind.

This is the year to indulge, enjoy, flex, and love the power of magic. Magic 2012 is here and it has never been more fun or more powerful! Enjoy it while you can!
