How I Changed Everything (Magic Is Not What You Think It Is)

I changed everything by using magic and it’s not what most people think.

I’ll not list what magic is not. I’ll only explain the way magic works for me and let you understand the truth behind the principle and how fast this begins to work for everyone, including the people around you. You see, it doesn’t just affect you. It affects everyone you think about and interact with.

Even today, magic is looked down upon by people who claim that using it is evil and ungodly. However, after reading this short description of magic and how it works, I think anyone can see that evil and magic have nothing to do with each other.  It’s just a phenomenon of nature, just like the wind or the sun. We use the wind and sun and it’ even invisible, but that is not considered magic. It’s powerful and amazing and very real, but it is not evil, although it could be used for evil things. Sunburns seem evil sometimes and electricity which can be harnessed from wind or the sun can be deadly, but it is not evil.  Power companies can seem evil when they deprive a poor family of power in the winter or in the heat of summer, but that has nothing to do with the amazing and wondrous power of the sun and the wind.  Same thing applies to the amazing and powerful wonder of our mind and our intention.

What is Magic?

  • Magic is the “way you think” about an experience or a thing
  • Because the “way you think” controls the words you say
  • Because when you “speak” a series of vibrations is created
  •  And since everything is a vibration. It can be surmised that our thoughts create everything.

Science backs this up in many ways. The fact that everything is created by vibrations and that “super-position” is a real phenomenon. Everything, from the smallest known particle to the largest known galaxy, is vibration and know we know it can be in more than one place at a time.  Do you believe that? I know it seems unreal and impossible, but it’s pure science now. It’s not a conjecture or a part of a pseudo-science. The fact of “super position” has been proven in experiment after experiment. Just Google “super-position” or read into the absolutely mind-blowing experiment called “The Double Slit.”  — It’ll change the way you think about everything. It will prove to you that there is proof that reality is not the way we think it is.

So how can we use this new knowledge? How do these vibrations change everything and why do I call this magic?

Use vibrations to our advantage is as simple as being aware of your thoughts and not allowing yourself to think mindlessly. It really is that simple. It is also very complicated once realized because being aware of your thoughts and stopping mindlessness is not always easy. It really can be complicated to not think of things that low vibrations create.  Fear, hate, jealousy, anger, the things we now call drama. There are all things of low vibration.

How often do you think about something or someone without realizing where your thought process is leading you. Exactly what emotions is it causing and what is the purpose of your thoughts?  How often do you find yourself focusing on a past experience and not realize how it’s affecting your current attitude about the future?

Please understand that learning to monitor your thoughts is the beginning of the rest of your life and it will put you in 100% control of what happens to you from this moment forward. I don’t mean that the things you think are “bad” or inconvenient won’t ever happen again. But I am saying that if you don’t like what is happening to you, change the way you think about it. Knowing that “it won’t last forever” and that “you deserve something better” will cause an immediate change of your reality.

When that “bad” thing happens you must not think “this has ruined my life and I’ll never fix this or get over it.” Instead, monitor what you’re think and purposefully think “this is certainly a surprise. This will lead to more surprises and they will all come together in way that I can use to present a new part of myself.”

Why must you think that? Because usually these “surprises” do come together and turn out just fine in the end. nd they have a purpose. You will live through the same low frequencies until you learn to transform them into something higher. We all know that Worry and Anxiety create more of the same.  So, there is only one thing we can do to change it. Thing in higher vibrations.

Here are ways to and things to focus on and think about as you go through your day:

Guidelines You Can Begin Practicing:

Below are a few guidelines in which you should live your life. This list is not my own, for it is used by many to make their experience the best it can be.

Read these slowly.

  • Think for yourself. Never let anyone else think for you. Or you will become a prisoner of their thinking.
  • If I am to know anything, know that I know nothing. And every experience is a new one where I can present a new higher frequency.
  • Question why.
  • Believe in yourself. Believe you can achieve whatever you set your will to, and you “will achieve” the things you think about.
  • Love yourself. You’re worth it. Be grateful to everything and everyone. They’re worth it.
  • Appreciate your water and food, it will return the favor.
  • It’s okay to feel angry, express it properly then let it go.
  • Raise your fists in defense, never in abuse.
  • Appreciate your existence, it is one of the most special gifts anyone can receive. You have a personal body that you can create and re-create as you wish.
  • Accept & respect everyone’s right to personal choice. It’s their god given right to create and re-create themselves anyway they wish, don’t take it away.
  • Give the help someone is willing to receive, not the help you want to give them.
  • Have faith in your future, and your future will faithfully be waiting.
  • TAKE CARE OF THE EARTH and she will take care of us.
  • Be helpful wherever and whenever you can, and the world will be helpful to you.
  • Know when you can’t help someone, so you don’t waist your time trying.
  • Don’t be afraid to express who you are. You are a wonderful spark of creation. Express Your Self and allow others to do the same.
  • Choose your perception. Only you can choose how to experience anything. If you don’t like it? Change your perception of it. (A great example of this is what happens when you think your drinking milk, but it’s tea. It tastes nasty, but then you know it’s tea and realize it’s actually delicious.)
  • Your experience of the world comes through perceptions, change your perceptions and you will change the world.
  • Take a moment every now and again and observe the uniqueness of your particular situation, take a deep breath, smell the flowers, appreciate your exact location and experience in the universe, it is a place in time that will never happen again.
  • Eliminate habits of thinking that obstruct the universe’s ability to carry out your will.
  • Have fun, you never have to stop being a kid.
  • The universe communicates with all of us. She tells us her secrets and answers all of our questions, we just have to communicate and then pay attention for the answer.
  • Know when to keep your mouth shut and play dumb.
  • Always do your best and you will never have anything to regret.
  • Eliminate or reduce toxic relationships. You wouldn’t stay in a room that stinks so why would you stay in a relationship that stinks.
  • It’s okay to to make mistakes, learn from them and do things differently next time.
  • Remember that, I am not just some body. I am spirit with a body.
  • Remember that, I am a force of nature, nothing can stop my true path. I will ensure my own success
  • All of life is a circle, what you send out comes back.
  • We each create our personal reality by transmitting our powers of manifestation. Learn how to clean up their transmissions so that the can create precisely with their intent.
  • Do what you love. If you can’t yet, love what you do, and your world will love you too.
  • Practice compassion.
  • Smile, you just might make someone’s day.
  • Accept people and the world the way they are, but work to change it for the better.
  • One thing is for sure of anyone who has ever succeeded, they never gave up.
  • You cant change someone, you can only change yourself and hope that they can grow from that.
  • All you see in your world is the outcome of your ideas about it.
  • You are what you think you are. You are your own thoughts about yourself, made manifest.
  • Life is not a process of discovery, it is a process of creation.

Like I said, this list is not unique and it was not created by me. It’s just the rules we have all heard before and have tried to live by at times. Be Mindful of yourself and of the vibrations your create.

The Guide

The Guide

by Thadd Presley

Perhaps; and I say this in case,
You’ve never been to, seen, or heard of the place
And, if not, just perhaps, you’d still like to go
You can get there still, by following someone who knows.

And who knows the way, and how to get there, please tell?
It’s not the one who only heard of The WAY and says all will be well.
Is there a single path? The only answer is no.
Is there a pleasant route? There’s only one way to know.

You must follow your heart, through the thoughtless crowd
And cover your ears to the loud distractions that abound.
There’ll be people pushing and friends holding you down.
They’ll see in your eyes, if you’ve got a route planned out.

And once they see that you know the way,
They’ll ask you for directions to that wonderful place.
Perhaps, just perhaps, you’ll take the extra time
To not just tell them the distance, but become their to guide.

Helping Others

The Art and Magic of Helping Others

by Thadd Presley

Why do we do things for others? Why bother? Our hearts tell us to puts others first, but it often doesn’t make sense to us on the surface. I’d like to know the answer to many of these questions, but one of them comes ahead of all the rest: why do we desire to put ourselves last? It just seems backward to let others go first. Why do we say “yes” when we want to say “no?” Doesn’t it make more sense to help ourselves and allow others to benefit from the wealth, health, and knowlegde we aquire afterwards? It might seem that way but that’s not the way the universe words.

The universe? What does that have to do with anything?
The universe is everything out there and we are stuck down here.

What if I told you that we can have anything we want, but we have to ask for it?
Seem like magic? I know, it does.
And that is exactly what it looks like when it happens.
The easiest way for me to explain it is like this: the more help you give someone else, the more power and influence you will have over the infinite resources of the universe.
I know that sounds like a fairy-tale and many people have not witnessed this amazing miracle in their lives, but it is true and it happens all of the time to ordinary people just like me.
I am living proof that this concept pays off quickly and unfailingly. I am a walking-talking billboard of generosity that comes from the magical, fantastical universe.

There are times I talk with my friends about “asking the universe” for what you want. It never fails to intrigue them and I can see the doubt in their eyes. But they listen because they want it to be true so bad.
It often amazes when what I’m telling them begins to happen. Not eventually, but usually very quickly. If the magic does not happen immediately, it’s within that day or at most the next. It’s just a fact of the universe, I tell them, and together we are absolutely amazed. No matter how or when it happens, whoever I’m sharing my “magic” with is there to witness it and they become endowed with the gift as well.

They always had the power to ask the universe, but they didn’t believe it would ever work for them. They lacked faith. All the stories through out history of miracles, magicians, and even Jesus wasn’t enough to give them the faith to try it. But, seeing it happen one time pushed them over the threshold into a new world. In to a world where they are creators as well as the created.

You think none of this can be true, right?. That there’s no way the universe just give people the things they ask for. You might think that for many reasons, but one of the biggest seeds of doubt is myself (the writer of this post.) You might doubt because I’m not super wealthy or wildly successful person. In fact, you’ve probably never heard of me and until now never read a word I’ve written. If that is true, then I’m very happy you are still reading this and I have a lot of work to do.

What if I told you I’ve done everything I’ve wanted to do and I have more than enough money than I need? Would you think that’s a miracle all by itself? If not, I want to share a few of the things I did. I’m not bragging, I’m only documenting.

Things I’ve done that most people won’t get to:

toured as a bass player in a rock and roll band
opened for a world famous band
met famous rock stars from America and Europe
worked with famous people
published several books (fiction and poetry)
recorded a great album with a rock band
recorded a solo album
currently publishing a fiction blog
work for myself writing fiction and other things
traveled the United States and a bit of Canada,
met a woman at 23 who still loves me and I love her,
live in a great place with a great view from the porch
found an endless supply of freedom and love

I could go on but I don’t want this to be about what I have, but instead about doing for others.

I have a huge problem saying NO. I just can’t do it. More often than not, I put other people before myself and my own needs.Yeah, you can probably understand how I came to write this and that putting myself last begins to get old. All of this is largely my fault.

I don’t have to say YES, YES, YES to everyone and constantly create scenarios where I feel used. Instead, very recently, I have realized that I have to say YES to myself sometimes. This will allow me to be in a better place when it comes time to help others.

You see what happened there?

I am putting myself first, but it’s for others. It’s not a selfish desire to want to help myself. It’s not selfish to want things. By putting myself ahead of another person, especially when it’s done in the interest of helping them, will demonstrate (to myself and them) that I am useful and important.

Helping others demonstrates my strength and knowledge of the world around me and it shows my respect for the universe that gives me the strength and resources in the first place. If I give my time and talent the respect it deserves, then people around me will begin to see that my help is a gift. It is not only given freely, but it is efficient and powerful.

More than anything, by helping others, I will see myself as a needed part in, not only my own life, but in the existence of others. If I allow myself to be run down and used to the point of being useless, then I’ll lose confidence in my own ability and begin to doubt myself. At that point, I won’t be able to help anyone or myself.

The Pope called Trump un-Christian

I don’t think the Pope should ever call another person un-Christian. I feel as if the Catholic church does many unbiblical things, but that does not make a catholic un-christian. I also feel as if the Pope is personally attacking Trump over the immigration/wall issue. Below are a few Bible verses that the Catholic church seems to over look.

I’m will not go into depth about everything I find “off” about the catholic religion because I don’t believe that anything mankind does it perfect.  However, here are a few verses I find important that seem to be overlooked by the Vatican.

Calling priests father

Matthew 23:9: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Creating statues of saints and other religious figures

Lev 26:1:  “Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your God.

Praying through Mary as way to reach God

1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”

About holding Mary higher than other women

Luke 11:27-28: As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”

A Metaphysical Exchance
(part 4)

Magic and Miracles follow me everywhere I go. You can ask around if you don’t believe me. I’m am using the Alchemist in me to create new things. Life is an adventure designed to teach us all how to turn energy into things we need. Bad energy can be converted into good and then changed into substance. On the other side, good energy can be used for greed and other thoughtless acts which will create great future interference and struggle. This is my mantra for today: Magic and Miracles follow me everywhere I go. Magic and Miracles follow me everywhere I go.

I learned from one of my all time favorite family members a quick way to silence your thoughts. I know it sounds impossible, especially to those who understand meditation and how important it is to have control over our thoughts in times of stress, but it is not impossible. It requires asking yourself a question.

“Who a I?” Ask yourself this question honestly and you will find yourself in a truly quiet moment.

These rare moments of silence are important and hard to achieve, but through this question, asked honestly, you will find a quiet that is not artificial or forced.

Don’t be too concerned if people learn about you meditating or laugh at the idea that thoughts can really create something real. Just because they don’t think like you or value your vision doesn’t mean they won’t benefit from your quiet times. Remember that nno matter how magnificent the sun truly is, people still complain about it. What is more importantly, is that you practice this thought: how will this serve me?

How will the new information you learn from meditating, they new information you learn abobut yourself, make you into a better person?  Only you must accept who you are. 100% acceptance of who you are is the beginning of understanding how you are creating your own reality.

What did you think about when you closed you eyes to meditate?
What was the first scene you saw floating before your eyes when you tried to shut everything out?
Who’s voice did you hear first?
What did they say?
Who were they speaking to?
How did it make you feel?
What memory do you have of meditating yesterday?

These questions will help you put your thoughts in order, help you understand what is always lurking behind the scenes putting “ideas”into your head, and it’ll show you a better layout of the map you have to navigate to bring a thought you “want” to have to the front of your mind. And once you have a better idea of what is in your mind, you will have a better idea of why certain things are in your life.

Yesterday I hung out with my brother and we had a long discussion on why people act a certain way towards people. We shared personal stories and how we should interpret other people’s actions towards ourselves. We came to the conclusion that we don’t see the other person’s feelings. Instead we see their actions and hear their words, but we don’t really know what they are feeling. And this void is very important to us as people. To know what people feel is to know why they acted a certain way. So, what does our brain do in order to fill in the blank?  It replaces the unknown with a “known” and tries to figure out what the action means.

The important thing about living our lives and being the best version of ourselves we can be, is knowing that what someone else thinks doesn’t matter. What I think of myself is the most important thought we could ever have the answer to.

So ask yourself: Who am I?
Do it today when you sit own to meditate and enjoy the silence.

A Metaphysical Exchange: Part 3

Many people have never heard that the heart’s magnetic field is 5000 times stronger than the magnetic field emitted by the brain. When I read this, I heard “Emotion is your feelings in motion” the very same day. To tell yourself “it must be now” is a good way to motivate yourself and others.  But, to feel it in your heart is 5000 times more likelu to motivate you and the people around you.

There is infinite power in NOW. When you remind yourself that you are “effortless,” you set a mark to begin knowing yourself. We all know who we are, but do we know how much energy it takes to be YOU? You are in this moment. You are you NOW. You are You Effortlessly.

From the baseline of YOU NOW, you may begin to make decisions and create the best version of yourself. It doesn’t require any effort to be you or to be present in this moment. You are here, so Relax and listen to yourself BE YOU.  Listen to your breath, listen to your thoughts. These will be two parts of yourself that you will must learn to control first.

Realize that It will not require anything to remain the way you are. The situation you are in and the person you are NOW was created before this moment and is present because of decisions you’ve already made. From this moment forward you must begin to ask yourself, “how is this assisting me in becoming the greatest version of myself.” In the beginning it will be your thoughts you must constantly question. Do not allow your thoughts to be hijacked by uncontrolled emotions. Remember your heart is much more powerful than your brain, so you have to be careful what you allow yourself to feel.

Of course I don’t mean to isolate yourself and be without emotion. I simply mean to not expose yourself to unnecessary situations. Stay away from toxic people. Dissern what is good for you. Some situations are not good to see and hear. Learn what triggers your emotions and decide accordingly. It will not take you long to notice a difference in your life, once you gain control of your thoughts and breathing.

Always remind yourself that life is about being happy and living with a passion. No one can make you happy. Only you can do that. Please, understand this does not mean others won’t make you happy because they will, but before they can lift your happiness you must have happiness inside of you. I call it the 49% rule. If you are 49% happy, no one can get you to 51%.  However, if you are 51% happy, then you can be taken to 100% happiness by another happy person.  This comes down to a statement that we should have learned in kindergarten. “Love who you are and be with others who love themselves.” In this scenario, happiness is unlimited and living NOW is effortless.

Frequency Shift: a metaphysical exchange (part 2)

I’m learning to embrace the new. It’s not what we don’t do, but what we do that matters. Life is a great show, we came here to enjoy it. Nature is such a wonderful example of life on Earth and what is possible in our own lives. There is no self doubt coming from the birds I hear singing on my porch. There is only living and breathing. From now on, when someone asks what I’m doing, I’m going to answer, “I’m breathing,” because the more we think about our doubts, the more they multiply.

Thoughts are frozen actions, the heart has no fear until we think about making a mistake. It is a cycle which we begin in our minds and watch as it happens in reality. It’s as if our mind knows it messed up by thinking the negative thought in the first place. I must over come self doubt, even though a lot of it was programmed into me during my young life. I have to make friends with fear and overcome self doubt. Fear is not negative, it is normal. We have to chase it and become friends with it. We live in a flash, there is no time for fear because all we have is NOW.

How can we let go of who we think we are and see ourselves for the true self? When I think of myself, who do I see? Is that what others see? What is important: what I see or what you see? — Judgment — Do I have to win all the time? What is abundance? Abundance is when you realize that you are worth it. That’s what I am learning. “Be well and do good work” a Garrison Keeler quote. So to all of you I say: Be well and do good work.

Frequency Shift: a metaphysical exchange (part 1)

Change will not come if we wait for somebody else or some other time. You are the one you’ve been waiting for. You are the change that you seek and desire.

I feel I should share a piece of my thinking with everyone. Some people might think I’m a bit egotistic to think this way, but here goes. “We can never lose, and we can never win, because we are the trophy. We are the prize we are striving for every single day and night.” Now when you begin to think this though, remember there is something we often forget. Remember this: our job in this life is to become the best version of ourself. Now, how can you become the best version of you? Do you know what being in your “heart space” is about? I don’t know more than you, I am just another person trying to figure out this whole process of “waking and sleeping.” I am learning that we, as humans, are the original technology and in learning this I know I can change the reality of my surroundings. I realize that this sounds crazy to others, but if you know me you know that I do have the power to manifest anything I put my mind too — even accidently. I use words, thoughts, and actions to change my frequency. Have you ever tried to change yours?

 

David Bowie and Blackstar Lyrics

I have been listening to David Bowie’s last album everyday since my girlfriend bought it. Many people know that I am a student of religion and philosophy. So, even before he passed on from this life to the next, I heard some words in this songs that made me think about Christianity.  The title song itself “Blackstar” caused me to think he was writing about religion because the Devil is refered t as the Morning Star. I think by calling himself a Blackstar he was admitting that knew he was a sinner in need of salvation.

To be more specific, Blackstar seems to be a revelation (a conversation) between himself and his Spirit. Here are some lyrics that stuck out to me:

“In the villa of Orman.”

Orman is in Syria and Jesus did some inportant things in Syria. Did you know that Jesus appointed Peter as the first Pope while in Syria?  So, that solitary candle, could mean the beginning of the Church. Was David Bowie Catholic?  I don’t know. Maybe this is his way of saying he was.

“Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried”

The Bible says know that Jesus cried in The Garden of Gethsemene and that he took our place in Death. Christians believe that something did indeed happen on the day of execution. Salvation happened.

” On the day of execution, on the day of execution only women kneel and smile,”

Now this lyric brings to the foreground the woman who was at Jesus’ grave. There were no men gathered there. Only Mary Magdelene was present when he Jesus approached his own tomb. She was kneeling and weeping.  But imagine the “smile” she would have had on her face when she realized it was in fact Jesus that she was talking to in John 20:16-18

These few lines from Blackstar make me smile, just as Mary must have smiled. Because as a Christian, I want to believe that David Bowie, is a brother in Christ and  will be singing in God almighty Choir when I get there myself.

More lyrics from “Blackstar.”

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place,

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd

I can’t answer why
Just go with me
I’m-a take you home
Take your passport and shoes
And your sedatives, boo
You’re a flash in the pan
I’m the Great I Am

I can’t answer why
But I can tell you how
We were born upside-down

Born the wrong way ‘round

Thank you for reading. I know religion is a hard subject to read about, expecially if it is somepne else’s explanations that they have cobbled together on their own. I realize I am only a person and I havven’t an answers, only curiosity. We will all miss David Bowie and I like to imagine him in heaven working with all those voices to create a joyful noise.

Little Cactus

Little Cactus

In a crumbling fence
Among these lost ruins
The little plant lives

The sand is so timeless
Where it waits for a drink
Sun comes up, night draws on
and it never shrinks

Only millimeters high
So strong and so stout
It survives it’s long life
On little of nothing… wholly without
