How to be a Miracle Maker Written by Keith Varnum
Create Love, Money, Body & Spirit You Want
Here's a fascinating secret about miracles: You can't necessarily always place an order for magic at will, but you can deliberately create conditions-environment, atmosphere and attitude-that make miracles a thousand times more likely to occur. Want to know how you can create a miracle-friendly world? By taking these practical steps, you will bring magic into your relationships, health, finances and more!
Your ability to Make Miracles is in direct proportion to your willingness to:
1. Tell yourself more truth about situation you want to transform
The more honest you are about where you're really at, more personal power you have to realize your dreams. By aligning yourself accurately with what is real, you retrieve all of life force you've invested in holding together false situations and relationships. This re-captured energy then attracts goals you desire. In this universe what's congruent gets energy. What's not congruent doesn't get energy. Where aren' t you being honest or accurate about some aspect of your life? What truth about your life is right now safe, timely, helpful, nurturing and liberating for you to acknowledge to yourself?
2. Act "outside box"
All magic occurs beyond boundaries of your current belief system. What obstacles lie between you and moving outside your " comfort zone?" Where could you let your vision for your life be more outrageous? More fun? More of what you really want?
3. Withdraw from collective mass consciousness
Step beyond general consensus to remove limits of what's possible for you to have. Many people have changed society-and had fun-by doing "what couldn't be done." You can too. When you withdraw your energy field from energy field of tribal collective agreement, you can create outside that agreement. Be " in world, but not of it." Where in your life would it serve you to step a little further outside of mass consciousness thinking?
4, Use Law of Attraction: Energize what you love with gratitude
Our magnetic field of energy is always (all ways) attracting exactly what we need to create our heart's desires. Discover ancient wisdom of multiplying what you have with deep thankfulness. As you pour vibration of appreciation into love, health, prosperity and joy that you already have, this vibration will magnetize more of same to you. It's physics of Universe. What aspects of your life could you right now be genuinely grateful for?
5. Experience "concrete, physical" reality as energy
When we choose to experience so-called "solid" things as vibrational energy-fields of energy-that they actually are, these aspects of our reality become infinitely more malleable and flexible in responding to our intentions. Where are you willing right now to open to experiencing your body-and other people, conditions, animals, rocks, emotions-as an energy field ( life force/flow dynamic) rather than as fixed, static, solid objects?
6. Reclaim your Personal Power
Are you energizing ideas and activities and maintaining relationships that no longer serve you? When you choose to invest in those relationships and situations that do feed your dreams, you regain tremendous personal power. When you choose to call back your spirit from people, ideas and activities that no longer serve you, you regain tremendous personal power to invest in those relationships and situations that do feed your dreams. What are you tolerating, avoiding or denying in your life right now? Where are you compromising, sacrificing or settling for something less than what you really want? Where could you invest your time, energy and attention that would really serve you?
7. Relax your grip on your belief system
When you release your vise grip on rigid, fixed beliefs you inherited from society, things can shift that need to shift for something new, fresh, wonderful and miraculous to happen to you. What are your beliefs about how life operates? How important are these beliefs to your survival, identity, reputation (need for approval) and sense of worth? In what areas of your life could you right now relax your need to control exact functioning of people and events around you?
The Practical Power of the ShamanWritten by Keith Varnum
Spirit of shamanism brings harmony and magic into everyday life
Shamanism is a very practical spirituality. A modern-day shaman could live next door to you and only clues you might have are that they get along well with people and animals and have a green thumb with plants. Also, shamans have a knack for putting people at ease and for saying and doing right thing at right time. In his book, Urban Shaman, Serge Kahili King defines a shaman as "a healer of relationships, between mind and body, between people, between people and circumstances, between humans and Nature and between matter and spirit."
If you have a taste of divine ecstasy, shamanism can teach you how to ground it, how to bring it into your everyday life through using your natural gifts and talents. Shamanism can support you in translating that experience, that creative energy, into physical form so it can benefit yourself and everyone around you. The essence of shamanism is not an esoteric, mysterious, ritualistic tradition which can only be practiced by native peoples in a tribal environment. This ancient spiritual perspective on life is a down-to-earth, pragmatic, realistic way of living that anyone can use anywhere, anytime, including in our modern world.
Currently across planet, sacred knowledge of shaman or wizard is being translated into everyday street language in order to create more healthy, harmonious and enriching lives for people. The spirit of shamanism is more of an open, flexible attitude and approach to living than a rigid set of rules, formulas and techniques. Applying basic principles of shamanism opens people to new possibilities and options for dealing with modern daily challenges.
From Alaska to Andes, from Tibet to Tanzania, shamanism is a worldwide phenomenon. Virtually every religion has its roots in shamanism, although shamanism is not a religion. It's a perspective-a way of seeing all things as sacred. Shamanism does not preclude any religion. It simply says that anyone can have a direct experience of divine without an intermediary. By honoring sacred essence of everyone and everything, one's whole life can truly become a spiritual adventure.
Omens and signs
The shaman relates to every form of life as being alive, filled with energy and always communicating something to us. The key is in learning how to receive communication. "Omens are a way Spirit communicates with us in physical world," states shaman Ken Eagle Feather in Traveling with Power. "You can decipher omens from virtually anything, but pay special attention to unusual occurrences, whether it's strange behavior of birds, or conversations in which someone says something that catches your attention in a special way, or when a book falls off a shelf in front of you. You might find that messages on billboards change right in front of you, so that while others are reading anordinary advertisement, you end up reading a message from Spirit. Be careful about being too strict in your interpretations, though. Remember, you are looking for guidance, not assurance. An omen might be same for several people, or it might mean several different things. It's up to you to create your personal omen dictionary. This open-ended response is called nonpatterning, and it provides space for Spirit to communicate with you."
Using personal experience as means through which wisdom is gleaned (rather than through reading, thinking or analyzing), shaman presents opportunities where people begin to sense a real, interactive connection with everything else that exists, even those things believed to be inanimate such as rocks, plastic, glass or metal.
Everything is energy
The basis of shamanistic creation, healing and transformation has always been knowledge that essential nature of everything is energy. Modern science, specifically quantum physics has only recently concluded that every living thing is made of energy. The reason that walls and rocks appear solid is because they vibrate at a low, dense rate. We know that pictures travel invisibly through air and arrive on our TV screens. Is it such a stretch to open to possibility that everything has an invisible energy within it? And that communication can be transmitted through this energy?
Shamans utilize knowledge that everything is energy to create in their world by using their conscious attention to direct flow of energy within all forms of life. Energy flows where attention goes. Indeed, scientists are now reporting that outcome of their experiments are significantly affected by beliefs and thoughts of person conducting experiment.
Since we come to this planet to evolve our soul within paradox of this world of polarity (light and dark, inside and outside, body and spirit), we must develop skill to play consciously and creatively with duality. If we are truly perceptive, we can see how energies of each opposing polarity are serving us. If we see how we are at effect of all these dualistic energies, then we can make a choice of what to keep and what to eliminate. This is an act of magic. True magicians are those who can influence energy, whether it is inside them or in world outside them. If we have learned how energy moves and behaves, we have opened ourselves up to our true selves. This is what paradoxes of our world teach us. Shamans know that humans are determiners of spirit, and choices, decisions and priorities that we set fashion reality of world in which we live.
