Online Magic Tip: Your One Hand Knows Secrets Your Other Hand Doesn't

Here's a handy online magic tip that is just one of the many you'll find in the second book in our Witchcraft Spell Books Kindle books series entitled Learn How to Do Witchcraft Rituals and Spells with Household Ingredients. This online magic tip helps you in getting information from the Universe which as a planetary citizen you have every right to access. A little spiritual guidance or help from higher powers and beings can help you even get information that is stored in the Akashic Records (records of Universal history).

How Accessing Information Helps You
First, why would you want to access this type of information and how will it help you? Mainly this type of information can make your life's journey easier. Your daily life can become much more enjoyable the more you ask for help and information from angels, guides, animal totems or your own Spirit. Whereas Mind tends to tell us things that have been tainted by society and many misperceptions, Spirit always gives us truth and doesn't lead us astray.

Left Hand, Right Hand Ritual
This online magic tip ritual we call the Left Hand, Right Hand Ritual makes you a channel for the information you need or want to access. Basically you ask yourself questions with your dominant hand and answer them with your other hand. To do this online magic tip, follow these steps:

1. Get a compass to find the cardinal direction East. For this ritual you will sit in the East facing West, so it is important to make sure you have the correct direction identified. East is the direction of knowledge and communication so sitting in the East will facilitate this communication ritual and help you access knowledge.

2. You will also need a table put in front of where you will be sitting. On this table you will need a Sun Yellow candle, wooden or paper matches, and a pen and paper. You could use a journal or Book of Shadows for the paper if you wish.

3. Once you have everything ready from Steps 1 and 2, sit comfortably in the East facing West and light the candle and charge it with the Sun Candle Blessing ritual.

4. The hand you naturally point with is considered your dominant hand. Use this hand to write your question or questions that you are seeking information about. For example, you may have just gone through a traumatic event and you might write, "What lesson am I to learn from (describe your current event or situation)?

5. Now switch the pen to your other hand and write the answer. It doesn't matter what the writing looks like as long as it is legible to you so don't spend time worrying about that. Also don't stop to think about the answer. Just write the first thing that your hand feels inspired to write.

6. Sometimes you may be surprised at the answer or the answer may not make sense to you. Don't try to force sense from it. Keep the answer in your consciousness for a few days and see what happens. It may be that you have only received a partial answer so that it will be easier to digest and other things will come up to fill in blanks.

You can repeat this online magic tip ritual as many days as you need to until you get all the information you need. Be patient with the process and enjoy watching the knowledge and understanding unfold and the results become clearer. Your answers will come in perfect timing with your ability to process and use them.

Remembering the Solution

This magic tip is so simple you're going to say, "Duh!" after you've read it. In fact, it's so simple that you might even be tempted to think it won't work. But don't be fooled... most magic follows the principle of Occam's Razor, where the simplest solution often turns out to be the best solution.

So what's this eeezy-peezy magical technique? Hold your breath... here it comes... it's the Art of Remembering. And here's how it works. Whenever you find yourself presented with a problem that you can't seem to solve by direct means, don't try to "create" a solution from scratch. Instead, tell yourself to "remember" the solution.

This is actually an old esoteric principle, often attributed to the study of Buddhism, and has been taught by many masters. When you try to create a solution, you often doubt whether you can. After all, what if you don't know what you're doing? What if you – heaven forbid – "get it wrong"? Oh no... woe is you!

But if you are simply trying to remember the solution rather than create it, your mind is fooled into believing that you already know the solution. This allows you to be open to many options and... voila! Solutions tend to come to you that are out-of-the-box... or at least out of the arena of your usual thoughts.

To paraphrase Einstein, solutions can never come from the same level of the problem. Unfortunately, when faced with a problem we usually try to solve it in the same way we've always solved all problems – within the context of the problem.

But solutions need to come from higher levels. So telling yourself to "remember" the solution opens you up to hearing insight from higher levels. Esoteric teachings tell us that our higher centers (some would say higher selves or guides) are always speaking to us, but that we can't hear them. Remembering allows us to hear the voices from on high and the solutions are... you guessed it... truly magical.

Remembering is one of the purest and simplest of magical techniques. Now, if you can just remember to remember!

Blinding the Outer Eye to Sharpen the Inner Eye

With our Psychic Development ebook, students learn to fine-tune their psychic abilities of inner sight and inner listening. Through various exercises, they are taught to tune out the external world and focus on the tastes, sounds, messages, and sights of our inner world. All of these exercises bring to mind a simple exercise that we learned years ago for developing inner attention.

The exercise is as follows:
Choose to blindfold yourself once a day and focus on the inner sights and sounds that come to you during this period of time. For instance, you might choose to blindfold yourself during a meditation or while listening to music. Obviously you don't want to be too physically active during this period of time- and certainly no driving or running around!

One of the best ways to sharpen your inner listening is to blindfold yourself during a lengthy phone conversation. As you talk to the other person on the phone, listen for any inner messages and watch your inner movie screen. The other person may be describing an incident that happened at work-see if a visual of that incident appears in your mind's eye. The ability to "see" coherently without the use of your physical eyes is one of the keys to development of your psychic abilities.

Alternatively, a random thought or story about the person may float into your mind. You'll be surprised to discover that many times these thoughts or stories are true. Don't judge anything that comes into your awareness. Just go with the flow and allow snippets of information to come to you.

Later, after you've practiced this exercise for a while, you can take it one step further by visiting a public place like a bus station, library, restaurant or mall. Without blindfolding yourself, focus and attempt to sense people behind you or not in your visual field. Feel their energy. Then sink into that quiet place within yourself and tune into the messages there. The more you open this psychic channel of communication the more messages will come through to you.

Develop Psychic Abilities: The Power of Changing One Tiny Habit

When you first start working to develop psychic abilities, here's a tip that will pave the way for you. This is just one of the tips and exercises you'll find in our Psychic Development ebook. When you are ready to develop psychic abilities or really anytime you want to get out of mechanical mode, choose one small habit to change. Sound simple? It is, but also very powerful in working towards the goal to develop psychic abilities and developing consciousness.

How It Works
How does such a simple change make such a difference when striving to develop psychic abilities? Well, first there is a Universal Law that says, "A small change in the present will create a larger change in the future". When you change a small life habit now, you pave the way for larger changes in your future. You open yourself to a whole new world of ideas and inspirations when you start by changing your habitual thought patterns. Also small changes keep you from running into the resistance factor.

Changing Habitual Thought Patterns
If you follow the metaphysical teacher Abraham-Hicks (www.abraham-hicks.com), then you've heard that the thoughts and feelings you have right now affect your ability to access certain thoughts and feelings. In other words, if you are happy now, you can access more happy thoughts. If you are sad, you are more likely to access more sad thoughts. By changing where you are in your thoughts and emotions just a degree or two, you make it possible to access new thoughts and feelings. Any tiny change creates a shift in you and in what you think and feel. This is why Abraham says when you are down, to just try reaching for the next happier thought. It is usually too overwhelming to go from really sad to really happy in just one step, but if you take baby steps and just reach over a little in tone to one just a bit higher then you have shifted your internal mood and can keep going up the scale towards happy.

Avoid the Resistance Factor
You'll find as you develop psychic abilities that your mind often gets in your way. It tries to keep control and tell you all sorts of things from that you are just making stuff up to having doubts about receiving information through spirit perceptics. You are making a big change by going from accessing information via your 5 physical senses to accessing information via numerous spirit senses. When you start to work to develop psychic abilities, you are making a big change, so pre-paving the way by making some small changes can help reduce the resistance mind puts up. Think about if your dad who is a pretty conservative type guy with a short regular "Dad" type haircut suddenly walked in with a purple and green Mohawk. Think of the resistance he would encounter to this big change. It would probably affect his job, his standing in the community or church and probably even how his family would react to him. He would probably experience feeling awkward, embarrassed, and the target of unwanted attention. But now imagine he walks in and just has moved his pinkie ring from his right hand to his left hand. Hardly anyone will notice that. Wouldn't be much resistance put up to such a small change as that. But, he will notice it. It will feel different to him and this difference can help shift him to another place inside himself.

Small Changes to Make
When we talk about making these small changes, we are talking about very simple habitual things that you do mechanically. For example, observe yourself when you eat, drink, brush your teeth, remove your shoes, reach for the phone, open the door and hundreds of other simple things we all do every day with our hands. What hand do you use without even thinking about it when you do these simple tasks? Now consciously switch and use your other hand. So if you open the door with your right hand, start making the conscious effort to open it with your left hand. Pick several things to start consciously changing. Don't let this get mechanical though too. Change things up if they start to feel that way and pick another set of tasks to change how you do them.

Other changes could be sitting in a different place at the table, driving a different way to work, wearing socks inside out, get up on the other side of the bed, move your alarm clock to a different place, go a different direction when you start your morning walk, wear your bracelet on the opposite arm, etc.. You get the idea, right? See what things in your life you can use to make these small changes, pick one and get started paving the way to develop psychic abilities in yourself.

Use This Simple Magical Ritual to Live Your Dreams

There are daily rituals that can help you magically in many ways, but there are some magic rituals that can help you live your dreams by making them come true. We often think that the only way to get what we want in life is by hard work. Magic can help us manifest those things we desire without all the hard work though. In our Daily Rituals to Attract What We Want in Life ebook, you'll learn about all types of magical daily rituals and there's a whole section on daily rituals for manifesting what you want. Here's one of the daily rituals you'll find in this book to help you manifest and live your dreams.

Creating Future Memories
Once we have put out to the Universe what it is we want, the Universe starts working on delivering it. Many manifestations don't appear because either we aren't ready to receive them or we get in the way somehow of them being delivered. Our job is to clearly state exactly what we want to have happen and then it is up to us to let it go and give the Universe room to work its magic and deliver. This is sometimes very difficult for people, especially those movers and shakers that believe they have to "do" something or be in control. One daily ritual you can do to help stay out of the way, build energy and force into what you are manifesting and let you feel like you are still playing a part is creating future memories. We usually think of memories as coming from past experiences, but you can also create memories of future events. By adding specific thoughts, emotions, and physical actions into memories we create, we make them real and create them in our lives. The more energy put into creating these memories, the greater likelihood of them manifesting in our lives.

We sometimes refer to this daily ritual as the "Pack Your Bags" ritual because if you are for example working on manifesting a great vacation for yourself, one of the actions you can do while waiting for the Universe to deliver is to pack your suitcase acting as if your dream vacation is already a reality. For this example, here's how you would do the future memory ritual.

1. Sit in a quiet space relaxing your mind and body.

2. Envision the future situation as if it has come to fruition already. For this example you might see yourself on the beach reclining in a beach chair.

3. See as many details as you can – smell the ocean, feel the sand between your toes, experience the joy of relaxing with a cool drink taking in the spectacular view, and so on.

4. Sit this way for at least 3 minutes a day adding more textures, feelings and sensations each time.

You'll find that the more time you spend creating these type of future memories, the faster they will manifest in your life. You can use this type of ritual for making changes to negative things in your life too. Just start envisioning the goal that you have not been able to accomplish and see yourself changing the actions you do. For example, if you are trying to lose weight, but can't keep away from the cookies, see yourself starting to reach for the cookies and instead reaching for an apple or for the phone to call someone for support or getting up and going for a walk. Add in the sensations, sounds, emotions and as many details into the new memory as you can. Creating future memories gives you a way to influence and help create your own future magically.

Gratitude as Money

One of the most frequent requests for help that we receive is around the issue of money. There are many different magickal ways to attract money, increase your bank account, or solve monetary problems. Many people find simple candle spells with a well-defined set of Directors and Limiters (what you want and what you don't want) works very well. Many people also like this approach because it seems to tackle the issue directly.

However, many of the same people who use this approach find that they have to use money spells frequently because they often need to solve financial problems. This is usually because some aspect of their lifestyle consistently produces a lack of money.

Another magickal approach to more permanently solving financial problems is to do a simple daily magickal ritual. This ritual is mostly about changing one's view of the world, as well as altering the energy that one puts out into the world.

Money As Energy
When you spend money you can easily see the exchange being made: dollars for goods or services. You can also see the exchange when you work to receive a paycheck: money in exchange for your work effort. But if you look behind all of these transactions, you will see that an energy exchange is at the heart of all of these transactions. When you work for a paycheck, you are being paid for the energy that you expend in different ways. Similarly, when you buy an item, you are ultimately paying for the energy that went into producing that item.

So money is really just a form of energy that we humans trade back and forth many times per day.

If we look at what occurs on the next higher spiritual level, we will see this energy exchange even more clearly. Consider the angels. They help us whenever we ask. So how do angels get paid? Partially by helping us. Angels get "brownie points," if you will, by helping us. These brownie points help angels ascend up their evolutionary ladder. Beyond that though, angels are paid in the spiritual coin of appreciation and gratitude.

If you consider the process we outline for hiring an angel for help from the higher, we recommend that people thank angels when they request help, while waiting for help to arrive, and after the desired result has manifested. When we express our gratitude to our angels before, during, and after the whole process, we are paying angels with the spiritual coin of gratitude. What's more, we are exchanging energy, which is at the heart of the monetary exchange system. Instead of dollars, we use the energy of gratitude and appreciation to pay the angels.

At the end of the day, whether we consider spending and receiving money or doing the same with gratitude and appreciation, we are exchanging energy with beings on the Earth plane as well as beings on higher spiritual planes.

How to Use Gratitude to Increase the Money in Your Life
Using the above idea that gratitude is the spiritual coin we use to barter with higher beings, and considering the idea that all types of money (on Earth and on higher spiritual planes) are simply exchanges of energy, we can come to a radical conclusion. Any form of energy exchange can be profitable. So what does that mean?

Let's say that you have a financial crisis in your life. You have more bills than you have money. In addition, the bills are due and you have no idea where to get the money to pay the bills. Can you use another form of money to pay your bills? Yes... albeit in an indirect way. Instead of getting a second job to pay your bills, how about using spiritual coins to pay your bills?

This is how you can use spiritual coin to attract enough money into your life to pay your bills. For the next 40 days, spend as much spiritual coin as you can. In other words, for the next 40 days feel as much gratitude and appreciation as you can about anything and everything in your life. In addition, spend as much spiritual coin as you can for the next 40 days. That is, express as much gratitude and appreciation to others as you can. When you express gratitude to someone, they are paid in spiritual coin that gives them a spiritual boost. The Universe notices that you have paid someone with spiritual coin that led to a higher state of being for the recipient. According to the Law of Karma, what comes around goes around (or, what you sow so shall you reap). The Universe will then convert that expression of gratitude into something you need: money to pay your bills.

This may sound a little crazy, but if you try this experiment for the next 40 days, you will be amazed at the variety of sources from which your money will come. If you spend the next 40 days noticing every "little joy" in your life, expressing sincere gratitude and appreciation to others (and yourself!), you will be paid tenfold in both physical money and spiritual coin. It is Universal Law. You need only practice this to verify the truth of this law for yourself.

It's a good idea to keep notes about your starting point, the ways you express and feel joy and gratitude and appreciation in your life, and the flow of money and spiritual coin that is returned to you. Keep track of the ways in which you spend your spiritual coin as you would a bank ledger. Then see what changes are reflected in your actual checking account ledger. You will be surprised at how quickly both ledgers fill up on the positive side with credits in abundance.

Gratitude and appreciation require only true sincerity and the willingness to keep an open mind. Spending a little energy each day giving yourself and others a spiritual boost costs so little that the risk and reward ratio is very good. If it doesn't work (but it will), you have lost nothing more than a few kind words that are appreciated by those around you. Learn more about daily rituals and how they can enhance your life and bring magic to your life with our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook.

Ready... Set... Spend!

How to Discover Your Animal Totem

If you're confused about how to discover your animal totem or totems, don't despair. The process can actually be a lot simpler than you think. The first and most important step to discovering your animal totem is to do some research. Animal totems act as guides and sources of inspiration in our lives, and they can also help us manifest certain qualities or characteristics in our lives (such as patience, love, joy, or persistence).

There are two basic aspects to researching your animal totem: book research and field research. Reading about animals and their characteristics gives you a good idea of what kinds of energies those animal totems might bring into your life. For instance, hummingbirds bring joy, enthusiasm, and lots of energies, while ravens bring mystery and a deep sense of humor.

Read About Possible Animal Totems
You can read general books or magazines on animals (National Geographic often has great information) or you can read books that specifically describe animal totems, such as "Medicine Cards" by Carson and Sams. Reading about animals also helps you find out more about animals that either don't live in your local area or are extinct (just because an animal species is no longer in body doesn't mean that its spirit isn't still around to lend energies and help).

Field Research to Discover Your Animal Totem
The other part of researching your animal totem is going out and observing animals in your local area. Choosing an animal native to your local area as a totem is useful in a lot of ways. First, they are already adapted to your local environment, and can teach you a lot about survival and enjoyment of your outdoor area. Second, you'll be more likely to receive physical messages from these totems-in other words, you'll be more likely to see and interact with them on a daily basis. Finally, you'll be able to do more direct research through physical observation of local animals than with exotic ones from faraway places.

To do this kind of field research, just walk through any park or wildlife area and observe the animals. See how they move, how they interact with you and each other, how they rest. Do they move fast? Do they react strongly to your presence or barely notice it at all? How do they express themselves? What qualities are most dominant in their behavior?

For instance, if you were to observe a colony of ants, you would notice that they persist in what they are doing, no matter how much interference they encounter. If you scoop up an ant on a piece of paper, carry it 10 feet away and set it back down again, it will continue in the same direction it was headed, as if it had never been scooped up. It will persist in completing its task regardless. If this dogged persistence is what you need in your life, then the ant might be an excellent totem for you. If you want to be more outgoing and gregarious, consider the raven or the magpie. Or what about the spider for sheer creativity and art?

Animals are all around us and we have so much to learn from them! Choosing a specific animal to be your totem personalizes your relationship with that animal species, and brings their particular personalities and energies into your life. Doing this kind of research is the first step to developing that kind of personal relationship. It's fun, inspiring and educational. So start doing your research today ... you've got nothing to lose and lots to gain!
