“The world is a theater curtain behind which they hide the deepest secrets.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
I was really impressed by the book “Magician’s Way” by William Whitecloud. Not only it is inspiring and motivating, but it opens your heart and engages your mind, it gives you practical recommendations how to create the dream life, full of achievement, growth and fulfillment. It shows you the easy way of having a blissful life, by revealing seven secrets of magic. The overall message these secrets deliver is to awaken your inner power capable of manifesting what’s in your heart. I would like to share with you those secrets in a brief summary, so you could understand that being a magician is very easy.
The First Secret
Your thoughts and feelings aren’t real.
They are the expressions of your underlying ASSumptions in any moment. Your visionary and auditory systems bombard you with false perceptions. Perception involves interpretation, and your thoughts, memories and emotions determine how you interpret what you see. What you think of a reality is not accurate. Your feelings don’t know what’s really going on or what’s really possible. Genuine understanding of this simple truth empowers. Fall out of your head, drop into your heart.
The Second Secret
Your focus creates your reality.
What you pay attention to determines your life experience. If you focus on end results, you inevitably attract what you want in your life. If you focus on the process how to get to your dreams (what you have to do in order to get what you want), you will end up attracting fears, doubts and excuses why you cannot succeed. “If people learned how to concentrate their mind on something at least for two minutes, they would become geniuses.” ~ Eastern Wisdom. Successful people are the ones who are totally merged with their goals.
The Third secret
Everyone has a heart.
Everyone has innate decency, dreams, goodness and compassion. Everyone has a pure nature that seeks to participate in the wonder of life, even if they are wearing masks. Communication and interaction with people become easier and smoother once you realize this truth. As a result, you stop judging and making false assumptions, based on your prejudices and false beliefs. With positive expectations and listening to your heart, you will attract the right people in your life.
The Fourth Secret
There is never anything to do, but always action to take.
Clarity of purpose, determination, confidence and persistence are the key factors that determine success. Once you have all of that you take action, which involves direct steps, based on the obvious toward creating what you want. Doing is usually vague, aimless and deprived of clear purpose. “Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” ~ Joel A. Barker
The Fifth Secret
Structure has integrity.
Your underlying structure with your beliefs and your prevailing thoughts that you entertain on a daily basis determines your life experience. In other words, your psychological framework or subconscious attitude towards life defines your behavior and your actions (e.g. framework – life is a struggle, behavior – you are constantly fighting; or life is a dance, so you are constantly dancing. Same life; different interpretations and different experience). The motivations behind what you do in life reveal your true underlying structure.
The Sixth Secret
You get the energy from a higher source.
You acquire true magic only when you let go of your fixed concepts about life and how it should be lived, about the highest good and where it is supposed to come from. Magician is open to everything and attached to nothing. Attachment and clinging create suffering. Magician has a higher level of vibrations than an ordinary human being. Magician is filled with the energy of life and universe, because he is open to it and he is absorbing it.
The Seventh Secret
It takes will.
Your highest source of energy is your own heart. Yet the paradox of human nature is that you are conditioned to protect your heart, so your behavior is motivated by fear. Fears stem from your thoughts and feelings, produced by outside stimuli. There won’t be any change in your life unless you have will to choose following your heart. “My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.” ~ Michael Jordan
Life can be an amazing experience if you choose to believe so. Money, fame, power, success, achievement and fulfillment are the side effects of the person you become, upon revealing your inner being and engaging your natural abilities. Life is energy. Raise your vibrations and you will step up on a higher level, and become capable of manifesting your dreams.
