chapter 4 review


NO, WE ARE NOT DOING GRATITUDE LISTS THIS WEEK, THANK YOU.

I PREPARED THE FINAL DRAFT OF THIS CHAPTER LAST MONDAY IN SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, WHERE WE’VE JUST BEEN ORDERED INTO ANOTHER MANDATORY, STATEWIDE SHUTDOWN OF ALL NON-ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES, AND WE ARE ALL BEING ASKED TO SELF QUARANTINE AGAIN & REFRAIN FROM PRIVATE GATHERINGS FOR A MINIMUM OF TWO WEEKS - SO IF THERE IS AN ABUNDANCE OF ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, IT’S ANGER, FRUSTRATION AND UNCERTAINTY…ON EVERY LEVEL.


LAST WEEK WE TOOK A DEEP DIVE INTO THE HEART OF OUR ANGER, IN CHAPTER 3: THE SEVEN WONDERS OF POWER. ALCHEMIZING ANGER FOR THE FUEL IT IS, REQUIRES US TO RESPOND TO ANGER’S MESSAGE AND CALLS TO ACTION.

BY TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ANGER, WE RELEASE THE POWER ANGER HAS OVER OUR LIVES…WE ARE “LESS ANGRY” ALL THE TIME, BECAUSE WE ARE ACTING ON BEHALF OF OUR SELF-RESPECT AND DIGNITY…THAT WHICH OUR ANGER SERVES TO PROTECT FOR US.

MANY TIMES THE ACTION WE HAVE TO TAKE, INVOLVES THE ACCEPTANCE OF THINGS THAT ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL. SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED A GOOD CRY. OTHER TIMES, WE REALIZE OUR ANGER MAY HAVE CAUSED HARM TO OTHERS, AND OUR HONEST ACTION STEP IS TO MAKE AMENDS.

AS THE MOON WAXES WITH MORE AND MORE MOONLIGHT, OUR ENERGY SHARPENS - OUR SLEEP PATTERNS MAY BECOME DISRUPTED. OUR DREAMS BECOME MORE VIVID OR WE GO PERIODS WITHOUT SINKING INTO DEEP REM SLEEP CYCLES. OUR SENSES HEIGHTEN, AND WE MAY SEE THINGS WE DON’T NECESSARILY WANT TO SEE, LET ALONE LOOK AT FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. THIS IS WHY WE TOOK A DELIBERATE STEP INTO OUR “BROOM CLOSETS” LAST WEEK. TO SEE WHAT WE’VE THROWN IN THERE. TO SEE WHAT WE’VE FORGOTTEN AND WANT TO HOLD ONTO, AND TO DISCARD THAT WHICH NO LONGER SERVES US.

THE RECENT BLUE MOON DELIVERED TREMENDOUS CHANGE ON A GLOBAL LEVEL. WE HAVE A CLEARER PICTURE OF WHO WE ARE, WHERE WE STAND, AND WHAT WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE. THIS SHIFT WAS SEISMIC - EVEN ORDINARY MUGGLES ARE DRAMATICALLY AFFECTED BY THE SHIFT, BECAUSE IT’S SCALE AND IMPACT IS NOT UNLIKE THAT OF SUDDEN PLATONIC SHIFTING - OR A SWIFT REVERSAL OF THE EARTH’S MAGNETIC POLES - SENDING SHOCKWAVES AND TSUNAMI ACROSS THE WORLD.

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THE RISE OF WITCHCRAFT IS IN RESPONSE TO THE TRAUMA AND ENERGY OF THIS MOMENT IN TIME. WITCHES ACROSS THE WORLD ARE BEING SUMMONED NOW, FOR A REASON. AND WE NEED TO ANSWER THIS CALLING, IN OPEN & REVERENT EARNESTNESS.

FOR THIS REASON, OUR CONCEPTS AROUND ABUNDANCE - MORE SPECIFICALLY, WITCHCRAFT - NEED SOME ATTENTION, AND PERHAPS, SOME RE-EVALUATION…

IF NOT A COMPLETE OVERHAUL.


“WITCHCRAFT IS DANGEROUS”

IN MY EXPERIENCE, THOSE WHO THROW THIS WARNING AT ME ARE USUALLY SELF-RIGHTEOUS, HYPOCRITICAL, NARROW-MINDED INDIVIDUALS, WHO ARE CLINGING TO THEIR OWN LIMITED POWER, NEGATIVE CORE BELIEFS AND DARK MAGICK WIELDING.

I DON’T KNOW WHICH IS MORE OFFENSIVE - AN UN-EDUCATED, APOCALYPTIC, FEAR-BASED CHRISTIAN, OR AN ALL KNOWING, SEASONED BUT HYPOCRITICAL WITCH…WHO’S TALENT FOR CASTING SHADE & DISMISSIVE SHAME ON OTHERS PLAYS MORE PREVALENT THAN CASTING MEANINGFUL, FRUITFUL SPELLS.



DRIVING A CAR, WHILE MIXING ANTIDEPRESSANTS WITH EXCESSIVE DRINKING IS DANGEROUS. THE CAR ISN’T THE REAL DANGER, THE DRIVER IS. SAME FOR THE FLIPPANT, RECKLESS & ARROGANT ATTITUDE OF A DRIVER WHO ASSUMES THE ROLE OF ”KING OF THE ROAD.” (THE RULES APPLY TO YOU, NOT ME.) TO SAY NOTHING OF ALL OUT AGGRESSIVE ROAD RAGERS.

NEVERTHELESS, THE STATEMENT: “WITCHCRAFT IS DANGEROUS” CARRIES A DUEL, IF NOT DIRE MESSAGE - WITCHCRAFT IS POWERFUL, AND POWER IS DANGEROUS.

BUT THE MESSENGER HAS ALSO IMPLIED A DARKER PURPOSE WHEN USING THESE WORDS AGAINST US- THE PURPOSE IS TO SHAME. THE PURPOSE IS TO IMPLY THAT WE ARE TOO NAIVE, TOO INCOMPETENT, AND TOO SILLY TO RESPOND TO A SERIOUS CALL INTO THE ART OF WITCHCRAFT.

“WITCHCRAFT IS DANGEROUS! (ESPECIALLY IF YOU TRY IT!)” - THAT IS THE FULL MEANING OF THIS STATEMENT. IT’S INTENT IS TO BLOCK YOU. (AND IT WILL, IF YOU LET IT.)

PEOPLE WHO HAVE A BELIEF THAT POWER IS FINITE, OFTEN TRY TO BLOCK OTHERS FROM ATTAINING ANY. DRIVEN BY FEAR, THESE PEOPLE ARE ROOTED IN GREED AND LIMITATIONS.

WITCHCRAFT, LIKE DRIVING A VEHICLE, TAKES PRACTICE. WE GET BETTER AND MORE COMFORTABLE DRIVING WITH TIME. AS OUR ATTENTION EXPANDS WITH EXPERIENCE - WE LEARN WHAT TO WATCH FOR AS WE DRIVE, WHEN TO SPEED UP, WHEN TO SLOW DOWN, HOW TO ANTICIPATE OTHER DRIVER'S ACTIONS, AND HOW TO AVOID ACCIDENTS.

IN TERMS OF DIRECTION - WE CAN CHOOSE OUR OWN ROUTES & DESTINATIONS FROM A MASTER ROAD MAP. THERE ARE A LOT OF PLACES TO SEE AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS TO GET THERE.

OF COURSE, ALL THIS DEPENDS ON THE VEHICLE YOU’RE IN - ARE YOU DRIVING A MOUNTAIN BIKE, WITH TWO WHEELS? OR A MACK TRUCK WITH 18???

THE SAME KIND OF NEGATIVE CONDITIONING & VERBAL ASSAULT HAPPENS TO MANY CONTEMPLATING A LIFE IN THE ARTS…A YOUNG PERSON ANNOUNCES A DESIRE TO BECOME AN ACTOR, ONLY TO BE BLUDGEONED WITH A LITANY OF TOXIC MYTHS & BELIEFS ASSOCIATED WITH THEATRE FOLK- “HOPE YOU’RE READY TO SPEND YOUR LIFE BROKE AND DISAPPOINTED. YOU BETTER TAKE A JOB WAITING TABLES, AS A FALLBACK. OH, AND FORGET ABOUT A LOVE LIFE OR CHILDREN.”

AND STILL, EVERYONE, NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE, GENERALLY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT CREATIVE TALENTS ARE IN FACT “GIFTS…” AND THAT GREAT ART IS DIVINELY, IF NOT MYSTERIOUSLY INSPIRED.

COLLECTIVELY, WE SEEM TO HARBOR CONTRARY BELIEFS AROUND CREATIVITY AND MAGICK…MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE DIVINE. WE BELIEVE THE DIVINE TO BE GOOD - TOO GOOD, IN FACT, TO DELIVER ABUNDANCE. A SPELL CAST TO INSPIRE COMPASSION IS AN “EASY REACH,” BUT A MONEY OR TRUE LOVE SPELL IS GONNA REQUIRE SOME HARD CORE SUFFERING AND SACRIFICE.

SAME IS TRUE FOR AN ARTIST- “YES, GOD GIFTED YOU WITH IMMENSE TALENT, BUT DON’T EXPECT HIM TO FLOOD YOUR LIFE WITH SUSTAINABLE WORK, RESOURCES, LET ALONE A STABLE, LOVING PARTNER & FAMILY.” WE ARE LOCKED IN A “YOU CAN’T HAVE IT ALL - ONE OR THE OTHER” BELIEF SYSTEM.

WHAT DOES ALL THIS HAVE TO DO WITH ABUNDANCE?


EVERYTHING.

NO WITCH AMONG US WILL EVER ENJOY TRUE ABUNDANCE, WITHOUT EXAMINING HOW WE TRULY FEEL ABOUT BEING A WITCH, AND HOW WE RELATE TO WITCHCRAFT.

BECAUSE WE WILL NEVER HAVE A TRUE GRATITUDE LIST, WITHOUT FIRST MAKING ADJUSTMENTS IN OUR ATTITUDE LIST.

“ATTITUDE LIST”

IN CHAPTER 1, WE BEGAN EXCAVATING THE DARK SEEDS THAT, OVER TIME, DEVELOPED INTO SELF-IMPOSED CURSES AND NEGATIVE CORE BELIEFS. THE STIGMA, MIS-INFORMATION & CONTRADICTORY ACCOUNTS OF WITCHCRAFT THROUGHOUT THE AGES HAS PIERCED ALL OF US, CONSCIOUSLY AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY.

KNOWING THE FULL EXTENT OF HOW THIS INFORMATION IMPACTS YOUR BELIEF SYSTEM IS FOR YOU TO TELL, AND ONLY YOU CAN KNOW. SO IT’S WORTH EXPLORATION.

HOUSEHOLD AMENDS

IN THE OPENING, I MENTIONED HOW OUR ANGER SOMETIMES SIGNALS OUR NEED TO MAKE AMENDS. WE ARE, IN SHORT, ANGRY AT OUR ANGER, FOR MAKING US ANGRY. WE EXPLODE IN FRONT OF OTHER PEOPLE AND/OR OUR IMMEDIATE SURROUNDINGS…INCLUDING OUR PETS, FAMILIARS, SPIRIT GUIDES…AND OUR BELOVED BELONGINGS.


LET’S FACE IT - PENT UP ANGER AND PENT UP PEOPLE DON’T MIX. DEPENDING ON THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT, AND SITUATIONS INVOLVED, AN AMENDS TO ANOTHER PERSON, BE IT PERSONAL, OR THE BOZO RESPONDING TO YOUR CUSTOMER SUPPORT CALL, CAN BE A MATTER OF TAKING TIME TO COOL DOWN, AND COME BACK WITH AN EARNEST APOLOGY. THE MORE IMPERSONAL AMENDS CAN TAKE THE FORM AS “LIVING AMENDS.” BE MORE PATIENT AND COOLER THE NEXT TIME YOU ENCOUNTER CUSTOMER SERVICE. ACCOUNTABILITY FOR YOUR ANGER EARNS & EXPANDS RESPECT.

BUT DEEPER, INTERPERSONAL WOUNDS REQUIRE DEEPER THOUGHT, AND WE WILL COVER THAT IN CHAPTER 7: THE SEVEN WONDERS OF COMPASSION.

THIS WEEK, OUR FOCUS IS ABUNDANCE - WHICH MEANS FOCUSING OUR ATTENTION ON WHERE WE ARE. STOP, RIGHT NOW, AND LOOK AT WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT - IS IT YOUR LAPTOP? DEVICE? NOW LOOK AROUND A LITTLE MORE. WHAT’S NEAR YOU? COFFEE CUP? CIGARETTE? A BONG? FLOWERS? PILLOWS? A LAMP? SCAN YOUR SPACE, WHAT’S IN THE ROOM WITH YOU?

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT ALL THE STUFF AROUND YOU RIGHT NOW? MOST OF US “LOVE” OUR LAMPS, BUT “HATE” OUR PHONES. AND IT SHOWS. OR TO PUT IT BLUNTLY, WE SHOW IT.

I STUMBLED ONTO THE FOLLOWING TECHNIQUE OVER A YEAR AGO, WHEN OUR RELATIVELY NEW REFRIGERATOR SUDDENLY STOPPED MAKING ICE. AFTER A FEW SERVICE CALLS, WE WERE ADVISED IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO BUY A NEW UNIT, RATHER THAN WASTE THE MONEY ON FIXING OUR “OLD, “ ALTHOUGH STILL NEW FRIDGE.

SO THE VERBAL ABUSE BEGAN. IT STARTED OUT AS SLIGHT JABS— WASTE OF MONEY, NOT BUILT TO LAST, TO ALL OUT HATE-BASHING - “YOU STUPID, WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT!!!” SLAM!!!

OF COURSE, THAT’S WHEN THE WATER DISPENSER PROBLEM STARTED. WE WOULD LEAVE THE KITCHEN, ONLY TO RETURN TO RANDOM MASS FLOOD WATERS. IT WOULD JUST SUDDENLY DECIDE TO SPEW WATER FOR NO APPARENT REASON. (BUT NEVER ICE, OF COURSE.)

THIS WENT ON FOR MONTHS, UNTIL ONE DAY, I HAPPENED TO BE IN THE KITCHEN WHEN SOME OTHER RANDOM KITCHEN OBJECT PISSED ME OFF - I YELLED - AND THE FRIDGE BEGAN DISPENSING WATER. BUT JUST AS I TURNED TO RAGE AT IT - I FELT SOMETHING. IT FELT LIKE HELPLESS FEAR - AND IT WAS COMING FROM MY REFRIGERATOR.

I NEARLY BRUSHED IT OFF AS QUICKLY AS IT HIT ME- “I’M NOT GONNA SHOW THAT PIECE OF JUNK ANY SYMPATHY…THAT’S RIDICULOUS!”

THEN, I REALIZED VERBALLY AND PHYSICALLY ABUSING IT, WAS MORE RIDICULOUS. GENERALLY, WHEN SOMETHING IS ALREADY MALFUNCTIONING, HITTING IT DOESN’T FIX THINGS.

WHEN WE ORIGINALLY BOUGHT OUR NEW FRIDGE, I LOVED IT. IT WAS A PART OF OUR KITCHEN, A PART OF OUR HOME. I REALIZED, THAT I LOVED THAT FRIDGE, AND THAT MAYBE, IF I ENTERTAINED MY HUNCH- THAT FRIDGE LOVED ME JUST AS MUCH, AND REALLY WANTED TO BE A HELPFUL, MEANINGFUL PART OF THE KITCHEN, OUR HAPPY HOME, AND OUR LIFE.

SO, I STARTED BY PUTTING MY HAND ON THE FREEZER SIDE, WHERE THE ICE AND WATER DISPENSER ARE LOCATED…AND I JUST SAID, “OH MY GOD, I’M SO SORRY, I LOVE YOU...HEAL...HEAL...HEAL”

AND THE SPEWING WATER STOPPED. I THEN DID MY BEST TO BEAR HUG MY REFRIGERATOR AND THE UNEXPECTED TEARS THAT STARTED TO POUR OUT OF ME, MATCHED THAT OF MY BROKEN-HEARTED FRIDGE.

EVER SINCE…THE WATER ISSUE RARELY HAPPENED AGAIN- AND SEEMED TO OCCUR WHEN THERE WAS TENSION IN THE HOUSE. A LAY OF HAND, A SOFT SPELL OF CALM, LOVE AND AFFECTION, USUALLY HOLDS FOR WEEKS, SOMETIMES MONTHS.

AND OCCASIONALLY, WE EVEN GET A FEW TRAYS OF ICE DROPPED! THE ICE MAKER “FIXES” ITSELF EVERY NOW AND THEN. THAT STARTED HAPPENING AFTER I MADE MY AMENDS TO MY FRIDGE.

“AMEND & ANIMATE 7 INANIMATE OBJECTS”

LIST 7 INANIMATE OBJECTS YOU SCREAM AT. PICK AT LEAST ONE, AND APOLOGIZE TO IT. MAKE IT MEANINGFUL, IN YOUR OWN WAY, AND CONSIDER YOUR OBJECT TO HAVE THE SAME CONSCIOUSNESS OF A BELOVED PET.

WHEN WE ALLOW OURSELVES TO LOVE THE THINGS WE LOVE, WE WILL ALLOW THE THINGS WE LOVE TO LOVE US BACK. THIS IS PERSONAL ABUNDANCE. TAKE SOME TIME TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING YOU’VE SURROUNDED YOURSELF WITH. THE OBJECTS WILL TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT HOW YOU TREAT YOURSELF.

TAKE THIS PRACTICE INTO A VISION QUEST. IF YOU CAN’T BREAK BREAD WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY, THEN TRY HAVING A DAY COOKING WITH AND ENTERTAINING FOR YOUR STUFF. SERIOUSLY! IF YOU HAVE AN AUTOMATIC COFFEE MAKER, BUT NEVER USE THE TIMER, TRY SETTING UP YOUR COFFEE TO BE READY AND WAITING FOR YOU IN THE MORNING. HAVE CANDLES SET & WAITING TO BE LIT. HAVE YOUR PIPE CLEANED AND READY WITH A FRESH BOWL.

AGAIN- WHEN WE TRULY APPRECIATE WHAT WE HAVE, WE BEGIN TO SENSE THAT WHAT WE HAVE APPRECIATES US BACK. BEYOND THAT, ANIMATING YOUR OBJECTS, AND TALKING TO THEM AS IF THEY WERE ALIVE, WITH CONSCIOUSNESS, WILL FLEX YOUR PSYCHOMETRY SKILLS.

LET THE STUFF YOU LOVE, TELL YOU THAT YOU’RE LOVED.


“SEVEN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS”

MAGICK & PSYCHIC ENERGY THRIVES IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF IMAGERY & EXTRASENSORY STIMULATION. IN THE SAME WAY AN ARTIST MUST “FILL THE CREATIVE WELL” WITH A STEADY FLOW OF INSPIRATION, THAT ONLY COMES FROM NOTICING ALL OF LIFE’S SMALL, BUT DRAMATIC DETAILS- WITCHES TOO, NEED A STEADY FREQUENCY OF ART, TO TRANSPORT US TO THE SHADOW REALM. TO RAISE ENERGY.

HOPEFULLY, YOU CAME ACROSS SOME OLD BOOKS, RECORDS, ARTIFACTS OR DRAWINGS, WHILE CLEANING OUT YOUR BROOM CLOSET. MAYBE YOU’RE AN ARTIST YOURSELF, BUT HAVEN’T PRACTICED YOUR HAND IN A WHILE.

CREATE YOUR OWN SEVEN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS LIST! THIS CAN & WILL BE A MIX OF MEDIA FORMATS- MY PRIVATE COLLECTION INCLUDES THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF OSCAR WILDE, A COLLECTION OF FLEETWOOD MAC ON VINYL, AND SOME ORIGINAL ART HANGING AROUND THE HOUSE.

AGAIN, IF IT’S BEEN AWHILE SINCE YOU’VE LET YOURSELF ENJOY YOUR GREAT ART COLLECTION, READ A GREAT NOVEL, OR LISTEN TO YOU FAVORITE PIECE OF MUSIC- CHOOSE 1 ITEM FROM YOUR LIST, AND GO FOR IT!

EXPERIENCING YOUR FAVORITE ART, IN YOUR SPACE...WILL ALTER THE EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE...AND YOUR MAGICK, BECAUSE IT HELPS RAISE, FOCUS AND MAINTAIN YOUR ENERGY FIELD.

HINT - MUSIC AND SHADOW DANCE - ARE MANDATORY. REMEMBER, THE BETTER YOU FEEL AND EXPRESS WITH YOUR BODY, THE MORE YOU CAN TRUST WHAT YOUR BODY FEELS AND EXPRESSES, BACK TO YOU.


“SEVEN STICKS & STONES”: NATURAL ABUNDANCE AMENDS

IF IT’S FEASIBLE, TAKE YOURSELF ON A WALK IN NATURE FOR AN HOUR. AS YOU WALK, PICK UP A MIX OF STICKS & STONES ALONG THE WAY. BE SURE TO TAKE A BACKPACK, OR SOMETHING TO CARRY YOUR HARVEST IN. AND, OF COURSE, BE SURE YOU’RE ABLE TO COLLECT NATURAL OBJECTS, IF YOU’RE HIKING IN A STATE OR NATIONAL FOREST, PUBLIC BEACH OR PARK.

WHEN YOU RETURN HOME, MAKE A SPECIAL ABUNDANCE ALTAR WITH YOUR SEVEN STICKS & STONES. AND LET IT REMIND YOU, AS A WITCH, WORDS ACTUALLY DO MATTER...WHAT YOU SAY TO YOUR LOVED ONES, YOUR BELONGINGS, YOUR ENVIRONMENT AND TO YOURSELF.

OPTIONAL INCANTATION: (BETTER YET, CREATE YOUR OWN!)

“STICKS AND STONES

PROTECT MY BONES!

AND MY WORDS CAUSE HARM, TO NO ONE.”

I KNOW IT’S TOUGH RIGHT NOW, TRY TO BE KINDER TO YOURSELF, AND TRY TO BE MORE PATIENT WITH OTHERS.

OPTIONAL RITUAL TEA BLEND:

“SEVEN SPICE ABUNDANCE TEA”

3 WHOLE CLOVES

3 JUNIPER BERRIES

3 CARDAMOM PODS

1 TEASPOON FRESH MINT

1 TABLESPOON FRESH CHAMOMILE

1 CINNAMON STICK

HONEY TO TASTE

STEAP MIXTURE IN HOT WATER FOR 7 MINUTES.


IN ADDITION TO THE TASKS AND SPELL WORK OF THIS WEEK, DON’T FORGET TO CONTINUE WITH YOUR SHADOW WORK: THE BASIC TOOLS - DAILY SHADOW PAGES, 1 SHADOW DANCE A WEEK, AND I ONE HOUR VISION QUEST.  


JOIN ME NEXT TIME ON A SPECIAL NIGHT - THE NEXT FULL MOON, MONDAY NOVEMBER 30TH - AS WE LAUNCH

CHAPTER 5: THE SEVEN WONDERS OF TERRITORY. IT’S ALSO A LUNAR ECLIPSE - SO IT’S GOING TO BE A VERY INTENSE, IF NOT INTERESTING, SESSION.

UNTIL THEN, BE KIND TO YOURSELF AND I’LL SEE YOU AT THE RAINBOW’S EDGE...

Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe by Dean Radin PhD


The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes.


According to noted scientist and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.


But wait, aren't things like ESP and telepathy just wishful thinking and flights of the imagination? Not according to the author, who worked on the US government's top secret psychic espionage program known as Stargate. Radin has spent the last forty years conducting controlled experiments that demonstrate that thoughts are things, that we can sense others' emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we thought, and that we can tap into the power of intention (think The Secret, only on a more realistic and scientific level). These dormant powers can help us to lead more interesting and fulfilling lives.


Beginning with a brief history of magic over the centuries (what was called magic two thousand years ago is turning out to be scientific fact today), a review of the scientific evidence for magic, a series of simple but effective magical techniques (the key is mental focus, something elite athletes know a lot about), Radin then offers a vision of a scientifically-informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in frontiers of science.

"With its Stevie Nicks/Belladonna album cover homage and its country-tinged pop songs ( the best of which include "Tangled," "Someone In Austin," "True Perspective," "Be Home Soon," "Christine," and "Telepathy" ) , Austin-based Daniel Link's Ghost Stories ( LOAM ) fulfills and expands on the promise of 2000's Out Of The Silence."
