I have always been fascinated by stories of people who manage to turn their lives around. I’ve always sought to understand how some people can achieve drastic leaps of improvement and become a magnet for abundance in their lives while the most of us struggle on by.
Since stumbling across Personal Development content covering the power of the mind, I’ve been drawn into gaining distinctions on how to harness the power of our mind and energy.
I’ve since learnt that there are just a few key concepts and philosophies to grasp when its comes to success. These concepts and philosophies have existed for centuries but each author has their own way of illuminating the concepts through words or images. Different authors will appeal to different people and understanding each concept from different perspectives can make all the difference.
The Magician’s Way is a fictional story elucidating 7 ‘secrets’ to transforming one’s internal and external world. Below is the summary of the 7 secrets. If any point intrigues you, I recommend reading the book to gain the full lightbulb moment.
To greater magic and abundance in your life!
The first secret – Your thoughts and feelings aren’t real
Your thoughts and feelings are an expression of your underlying assumptions in any moment, not a reflection of actual reality or what is truly possible
The second secret – Your focus creates your reality
Your experience in life is determined by what you put your attention on. If you focus on end results you inevitably attract what you want. If you focus too much on what you have to do to get what you want you end up attracting your doubts, fears and beliefs.
The third secret – Everyone has a heart.
Having a heart means that you do have dreams, that there are things you love, things that are deeply important to you. An inherent part of the human journey is that at some point you end up putting more energy into protecting your heart than going for it.
The fourth secret – There is never anything to do, but always action to take.
‘Action’ is about taking direct steps, based on the obvious, towards creating what you want. ‘Doing’ is about fulfilling certain conditions you believe are necessary before you can get what you want.
The fifth secret – Structure has integrity.
Something’s structure dictates its behaviour, and its behaviour dictates its experience. In creative terms, what your attention is focused on form the underlying structure in your consciousness. The motivations behind what you do in life reveal your true focus.
The sixth secret – You get your energy from a higher source.
As a human being, you have the tendency to develop fixed concepts about what is in your highest good and where it is supposed to come from. The key to magic is developing the ability to let go of your fixed concepts and open up to the true source of your energy.
The seventh secret – It takes will.
Ultimately, your highest source of energy is your own heart. Yet, the paradox is that you are conditioned to protect your heart, a behaviour motivated by fear. Your fears are communicated to you by thoughts and feelings. There can be no sustainable change in your experience of life unless you have the will to choose going for your heart resolving your thoughts and feelings.
