Something You Can Do About Fear

History, unfortunately, has a great deal to do with the result of fear. When we are fearful we are very susceptible and vulnerable to being swayed and influenced...and at times this has value because it can bring people together and it can also bring help or stimulate you into helping others. So it can also bring your attention to something within yourself or within your environment that needs attention of its own. So fear works with us to bring our attention to what needs to be immediately addressed - we know this.

However when times, like we're in now all over the world, prompt fear and doubt and worry not only about the present but about the future very often we can become susceptible to snap your fingers simple solutions.

You know here on Benevolent Magic, especially those who've read this from the beginning and practiced the homework, that while what I offer here is simple very often it is not always easy because it is designed to bring you on to a path or to support your path of benevolence for yourself and others.

It doesn't guarantee to automatically make your life wonderful but it is intended to empower you and to support you to achieve many things you desire for yourself and others in a way that works with all beings rather than competitively against all beings and sometimes even, as you know from your experience ja (yes), competitively within yourself - inner conflicts eh. Often we don't even know they're there.

So today a little Benevolent Magic okay. I'd recommend that you go outside if you can and follow my usual procedures*.

When you're in that place that's just right for you look up into the sky. If the moon is out you can look at it. If the sun is out, you know, close your eyes and look in that direction for a moment. Then while you are standing facing north^ make 1 complete rotation to the left ending up facing north. Raise your arms over your head so that your palms come together. Then slowly lower your arms so that your palms are at each side of your body and touching your legs or thighs.

Then I recommend you say this out loud as always or whisper if you prefer, "I am asking that all those beings and people upon this planet who tread upon the soil, who move through the air, who exist underground and who are within the air that I breathe come together now with the energy of reassurance, calm and safety to produce an environment all around me and all about me wherever I go and whatever I do of those moods and energies so that simply by being I can spread consciously or unconsciously those good feelings."

Then relax for a moment. Make 1 more complete rotation to the left and end up facing north. Look down at the ground for a moment. Then look straight ahead.

Then take 6 sidesteps to the left. Make a one quarter rotation to the left. Take 12 sidesteps, or 10 if there's only room for that, to the left. Then turn to the left and end up facing the direction you need to go and walk away from that place.

The purpose of this True Magic, for that's what it is though it is incorporating to a degree Benevolent Magic - yes, is not so much to command or demand - it never is eh - it's rather to reassure.

Mostly what people need now is reassurance and there will be times when you can do this consciously. There will also be other times when it would be easier for you to be able to simply radiate it unconsciously. That's what this is meant to do.

I believe it will be of assistance and might just prompt you to have those feelings more often as well. Goodlife.

*Know that as a general rule of thumb, as people say, it's important to care about that which you are performing true magic for. This way you do not have any inner conflicts or feelings in conflict in your body with that which you are attempting to do. This could not only cause you to feel uncomfortable but it would generally impact the true magic so much that it may not do any good.

This is what I recommend. Go outside if you can and as always try not to wear shoes that are insulating you - keeping your energy, you understand, from moving into the ground. If you need to wear shoes try to wear something that is made of a natural fiber - even leather, that's fine but not plastic or rubber - not an insulating material.

Then go out on the land someplace. And remember - always to go someplace where you feel safe including your own backyard if that is a place to feel safe but if you go out in the country or someplace else always do these things someplace where you have permission - that's important - so that you can feel safe and so that those who may have some claim to the land upon which you are standing will be comfortable with your presence.

It's always good to do true magic in a place where there is no conflict - outer or inner. This way it is more likely to work in the most benevolent way. You can of course wear insulating shoes to get there if you have to drive there or have to go in a vehicle of some sort but once you get there put on non-insulating shoes or go barefoot if you feel comfortable there and then stand out on the land.

^ We face north because that is the direction where creation takes place and it is also the direction where the manifestation of what we are attempting to create begins to take place in our outer world as well as in our inner world.

Towards That More Benevolent Life

Over the years people have asked, with the best of intentions, "How can we speed this up." Meaning how can we speed some process, some trend, something up so that a desired benevolent conclusion can take place. And while I understand and appreciate these feelings it's not about speeding it up.

How many times have you tried to rush something - to make something happen and this or that happened and it just didn't turn out right. Or maybe it seemed to turn out right and later you noticed that something was missing and over time things just fell apart.

It's not about speeding up. I know it seems like that. After all when we want something and we get a sense of its presence and we even feel encouraged by something that we notice even for a moment there's a desire isn't there, to build up a head of steam and move towards it in whatever way feels best in the moment but you see it's very much like attempting to produce something when all the ingredients are not in place yet and perhaps not even all the chefs needed to produce that perfect meal or any other metaphor you'd care to substitute here.

I'm here to suggest that it is important to allow the pace, which is inexorably moving forward, to remain slowww. A slow pace means that everyone and everything is moving towards that goal with no one and nothing being left behind.

This pace of moving all the occupants of this planet towards a more benevolent life, that we all experience on a full-time basis when we're not here in Earth school and we're in our soul selves in other lives in other places, cannot be stopped.

It's just can't stop the orbit of a planet going around a sun. You can't stop what is natural. Though you might try to delay it and there are those who are doing that for what ever reasons make sense to them.

I just want to remind you that the reason the pace is as slow as it is, and I agree with you - at times maddeningly slow, is that no one is to be left behind. Of course during this time people will come and go. Babies will be born, old folks will pass over and that's part of the cycle of life as we know and understand it.

There will be things that happen that we will abhor and other things that we'll celebrate. Life goes on, not always to our liking but it does go on.

I'm here to remind you that as slow as it's going, and how much faster we'd all like it to go towards that benevolent place, it must go at the pace that includes all beings.

Towards that end I'm going to suggest a simple living prayer. If you feel up to it you can say it but don't say it if you don't feel it has value. First ask for all the most benevolent energies that are available to you to be all around you and all about you and wait a moment and then say, "I am asking that I be able to live in the moment to be present in my physicality, to have my spirit with me at all times and my soul in attendance and that I am able to enjoy the moment as well as possible and live my life in the most benevolent way that I am able."

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
