Gotta Make a Decision But Feel Waffly? Try This Online Magic Tip

No doubt, we are living in a topsy-turvy world, a world in which it can seem hard to make the right decisions in life. Eenie, meenie, miney, moe ...

If you are having difficulty figuring out how to make the "right" decisions for your life, we have an online magic tip that can help. But first, here's a quote that can offer you some comfort. This quote comes from Abraham-Hicks:

"Make a decision and then make it right. There just are no wrong decisions ... But in the moment you start complimenting yourself on the decision you've made, in that moment, you come back into vibrational alignment with who-you-really-are."

There Are No Wrong Decisions
What Abraham refers to in the quote above is that there are no wrong decisions. The "rightness" of a decision is based solely on how you feel about the decision. Feel bad about a decision you have made, and prepare for the decision to drag your life into the toilet. Feel good about a decision, and watch the good things in your life soar.

As this online tip will show you, there are no wrong decisions, so any decision you make will be right so long as you can manage to feel good about that decision. Should you use a pendulum, a question circle, or a tarot card reading to help you make a decision? Sure, if performing those magic rituals will help you feel more secure about your decision. Do as many magic rituals as you need prior to making a decision if that helps you make the decision "right."

Ways to Affirm a Decision with Magic
Once you have made a decision, feeling good about that decision may be a matter of reaffirming the decision daily with magic rituals. For instance, we recently made the decision to take more time out of our schedule to travel and replenish our spirits, even though there was a heavy financial component involved. The decision wasn't hard to make: we definitely need to feed our spirits, given that we are on a spiritual path.

But like everyone, we sometimes experience fears and doubts about our decisions. We did about this decision. So what did we do? We had already made the decision, and now we had to make the decision right. We re-affirmed our decision by doing a question circle. The feedback we received from the Universe was definitely positive, and allowed us to "feel good" about our decision. This "feel good" sensation has allowed us to move into the space of making the decision right. If and when we fall back into doubt, we turn back to magical rituals. Each day, if necessary, we use magical rituals to keep making and reaffirming our original decision.

What About You? An Online Magic Tip That Can Help
The conscious choice magical technique is one way to prevent an impending decision from hanging over your head like the Sword of Damocles. Use this online magic tip to help you make the decision, and then make the decision. Then follow through by making the decision right.

To Make a Conscious Choice
  1. Quiet your inner self by taking a few deep breaths.
  2. Say to yourself, either aloud or silently, "I will now make a conscious choice." 
  3. Next, ask yourself the choice question, such as, "Do I choose to xxx or not?" 
  4. The first answer you "hear" internally (or sometimes externally from a passing person) is what you must follow. You may not, in this exercise, avoid doing the option you have consciously chosen.
The conscious choice exercise is magical because it puts you in touch with your spiritual wisdom, and by following the answers you "hear" from your spiritual self, you will never find yourself in the wrong place. Plus, you get to practice the idea that there are no wrong decisions. Following your intentions puts you on your magical path, and the conscious choice exercise is a perfect, simple, and subtle way to exercise your intention.

Once you have made a conscious choice, reaffirm that choice each day if necessary. Hire angels, ask for support from your spiritual guides, ask the Universe for positive signs that your choice is correct. Strive to "see" that which you desire, that which supports your decision. You will be surprised how the Universe will ALWAYS support your intention. No holds barred! Watch ... and surprise yourself!

Online Magic Tip #7: How to Not to Get Carried Away

Do you get into trouble when you get carried away by your interests, your passions, your hobbies, or your weaknesses? Whether "getting carried away" means that you spend too much money, waste too much time, or otherwise do something that doesn't help you reach your goals, getting carried away unintentionally is often not a happy event.

Luckily, there is a simple magical way that you can keep your attention focused on the present moment ... and your present goals. Online magic tip#7 is this: as long as you can maintain attention on a physical sensation in your body, you will stay present. Staying present helps you remember you goals, not to mention preventing you from worrying about the future or stressing about the past.

To stay present, simply pick an area of the body on which you will feel sensation. For instance, you could focus on feeling sensation on your left forearm. Then every time you walk through a doorway, renew your focus on your left forearm. The doorways bring your attention back repeatedly to sensation, helping you stay present in the moment. If you tend to remain at a desk most of the day, pick a different "event" to bring you back. You can even set a timer or alarm on your phone as reminder.

Try it ... you will be surprised at how this simple online magic tip will help you stay in the moment ... which is a "present" you can always give yourself!

May the Force Be With You ... No Really!

In certain esoteric circles, a lot of attention is given to the accumulation of "force." The more force a magical practitioner has, the more effective her magical rituals and intentions will be. No wonder Luke was always concerned about "the force"!

The neat thing about force is that it helps you be more effective in daily life as well. So force is a good thing all around.

Many of the daily magical rituals that we describe on our website and this blog help you accumulate force in your magical practice. One area that we have not touched upon much is that of timing. It is one thing to gather and accumulate force. The use of force – or more specifically, having access to magical force when you need it – is another matter.

This is where timing becomes important. When you feel tired, depressed, hopeless, or otherwise "down" you will not be able to access your force without taking certain steps. For instance, moving your emotional tone up from depression to anger will give you more access to your force because anger is a more "forceful" emotion than depression. Of course, anger also wastes quite a bit of force, so sometimes the use of anger negates its own energy.

One method for accessing force when you need it is to practice the art of timing. When you feel down, you won't be able to access your force. You probably know yourself well enough to know what triggers cause you to feel negative, as well as what actions or events uplift your spirits.

If you need to perform a magical ritual but have no force, don't perform the ritual now. Wait. Eventually the timing is right for everything, including your magical ritual. You may want to have everything for your ritual prepared so you can launch into action the moment you feel your force returning.

Even if you need some force at your job--in which case force could translate into inspiration, ideas, or will--the art of timing will help. If you feel dead inside, a total lack of force, then don't try to work on a project that calls for inspiration. Instead, turn your attention to something else. Go take a brisk walk to get your physical energy moving. Often the energy of physical movement transfers to your intellectual and emotional centers. If this happens, then you will feel your force returning. You will feel moved by your muses and excited by the possibilities.

The moral of this tale? When in the doldrums, just wait. Your force will return. It always does. May the force be with you!

The Magic of Dreams and Moods

The magic of dreams is an art that has been studied by magical practitioners for a very long time. In fact, in many aboriginal cultures, dreams are reality and reality is but a dream. These cultures believe in the magic of dreams and dreamtime.

Dreams are certainly one of the most commonly used channels by angels, guides, higher selves, and totems. This is especially true if we tend to be fairly deaf to messages from these beings in our every day lives. So it's important to make use of the magic of dreams, since for some people this is the only way that our higher guides can communicate with us.

Remembering Our Dreams
One of the biggest obstacles people face when they first try to access the magic of dreams is that they can't remember a single dream. In fact, some people even doubt whether they dream. But according to Edgar Cayce, everyone dreams. Some people are simply better at recalling their dreams than others.

Aside from the usual techniques to help us remember dreams (such as keeping pen and paper by your bed and jotting down dream fragments if you awaken during the night), Cayce stated the moods could help us remember our dreams more clearly.

If you "wake up on the wrong side of the bed" and feel grumpy upon opening your eyes, the chances are that your dreams are about some conflict in your life. Cayce counseled people who awoke grumpy and unrested to study their waking lives as well as their dream lives to find this conflict.

On the other hand, if you awaken feeling peaceful and refreshed, you know that your dreams are not dealing with some serious conflict. This does not mean you should not access the magic of dreams by trying to remember your dreams, only that the need to solve a conflict is not present.

So moods can definitely tell us when we need to be "alert" to our dreams, and when we can rest easy, so to speak. If you watch your moods upon awakening over a long period of time, you may also begin to remember your dreams more easily and clearly.

When the Magic Is Not Working: Go Fly a Kite

You've hired some angels. You've launched a spell. You've made some sacred space. You've talked to the powers that be. In short, you've done everything in your power to bring magic to bear on something specific in your life ... and nothing is happening. What now?

Go fly a kite.

Or, if you don't like kites, take a hike. Ride a bike. Fish for pike. Sing into a mike. Stick your finger into a dike. Take a drive on the turnpike. OK, so maybe I'm getting carried away here (I'm often heavily influenced by the rhyming of spell chants), but you get the point.

Magical Delays
If the magic doesn't seem to be working for you, go do something else for a while. This might be counter-intuitive, but it really works. We get emails from students and strangers all the time, asking us what to do when the magic isn't working (or isn't working fast enough) and we often tell them to fly a kite.

Here's the thing. Magic always works. What delays the magic? Us. When we get worried, angry, depressed, and negative, the magic slows way down. As the teacher Abraham-Hicks is fond of saying, "You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey." If you feel negative, then you're on an unhappy journey, and you can't have a happy magical ending.

The Prime Directive: A Giant Stop Sign
The reason magical beings can't deliver the result you want when you feel negative is because of the Prime Directive. Just like on Star Trek, the Prime Directive says that other beings can't interfere in your life. If you have asked for something magical to happen in your life, but then you doubt that it will happen, your intention rules supreme. Your doubt serves as a giant stop sign to angels and other helpers. They can't override your dominant intention of doubt.

But once your attention shifts into neutral, magical beings can once again deliver the magic into your life. You don't even have to be positive. You just have to not be negative. That's why flying a kite helps. It takes your mind off the "problem," which switches your attention to neutral. When you return from flying a kite, voila! Some magic will probably have taken place.

So do something, anything, to keep yourself busy while the magic happens. Stop getting in the way and the magic will appear. Do something "in the meantime." Your angels will thank you!

The Levels of Magical Knowledge

Most esoteric teachings divide knowledge into several different levels. It’s important to differentiate between these levels of knowledge since a magician or shaman must know what kind of knowledge is trustworthy and what is not.

In the ordinary world, almost anything can be categorized as knowledge, including what you read, what you hear from other people and what the experts tell you. Magically, true knowledge is quite different. Here are different levels:

You do not know about the existence of something.

KNOWLEDGE OF: You have heard of the existence of something but don’t know anything about it.

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT: You have heard other people or sources talk about something. This is also commonly called hearsay.

KNOWLEDGE: You have directly observed or experienced something. Magicians and shamans consider this true knowledge.

KNOWING: Information you receive through your spirit senses which you may or may not be able to validate through your physical senses.

Most esoteric practitioners consider only knowledge and knowing to be trustworthy sources of information – everything else is open to question. Because magicians and shamans are the researchers of the metaphysical world, their job is to verify everything they read or hear about through actual observation and experience.

Why are these levels of knowledge important? Because when you’re traveling out of body or working with high level magical techniques that could have serious consequences you’d better be sure of your knowledge. The Universe judges you on what you do, not what you meant to do (based on faulty information).

In daily life if you choose to only put your faith in knowledge and knowing you will find that your life becomes much more harmonious. Why? Because most of our daily problems arise from trusting information that we only know of or know about. If you validate what you believe through actual experience and observation you won’t fall into the usual societal traps. Good luck!
