Apply Yourself Now...

As many of you may have noticed there has been a lot of urgent situations developing lately. Many of us also have been involved in circumstances where we need help or where we might wish to urgently help others.

Given that, I am interjecting a message here on Benevolent Magic with the request that you ask for the most benevolent energies that are available for you to share your personal space with you and when you feel that or when you get the impression that they are present then I'm requesting that you say the following living prayer.

I'm requesting that you say, "I am asking that all those people all over the world and all those beings all over the world who need help, love, support, encouragement, blessings, safety, protection, food, shelter and other receive all that they need now in the most benevolent way from all those people and beings who can help them."

I will from time to time if necessary or if the toll of urgency strikes include such messages here. I am asking for you to respond in the most benevolent way now and know that as this message gets out and about that you have something you can say besides what you have been doing - and I know you have been doing your part - that will help. Know and believe it will help.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Getting Out Of Our Own Way

The pathway to prosperity is not always obvious is it. Sometimes it is circuitous and even turns back on itself. It seems as if we've forgotten something and have to repeat it. I'd like to talk a little bit about that today.

These days we are often reminded of how much some people have and we are also reminded about how little some have. I know that we all see the future in time, as being something benevolent where everyone has what they need and we are all kind to each other and I believe that this will happen but there is a pathway there.

One of the pathways is something that we experience here on the internet where we read each others thoughts and as best as possible in words - our feelings and we have the opportunity to read thoughts and feelings of others many of whom we don't know and have never met and some whom, by reading their expressions here on these blogs, we feel we know somewhat and perhaps we would like to meet.

I have found in my experience that when we co-ordinate in this way we find out things about each other - even people who might live on the other side of the Earth - we have so much in common with them.

Oh we may not have the same pursuits or the same interests but we all feel things the same way and our thought processes work the same and our body biology is basically the same, given that we have two different types of human beings.

Still, with all this common ground and even with a heart filled with a desire to share there is a genuine feeling and evidence to back it up that prosperity is sorely lacking in many places. I'm sure we can all identify with that from time to time if not all the time.

I want to suggest some homework. It won't take long, so no worries okay. It comes under the heading of a living prayer and as I've said before I'd like you to ask for all those energies to come in to support you so that you can feel as benevolent as possible before you say this living prayer and once you have done that then I recommend you say this especially if you are feeling those benevolent energies.

I recommend you say, "I am asking that all those beings whom I know and whom I don't know who have needs physical that can be served by prosperity of their own or by shared prosperity from others experience all that they need on an ongoing basis in the most benevolent way for all beings." Now it's important to put it like that so that there is no confusion that all are to be served benevolently.

In my world where magic is so much a portion of existence, and my perception of many of the beauties of our world is that it has its own definition as magic - the smile of a baby unprompted by anything around baby, the beauty of a flower and so on, then in that magical world I perceive that we can experience prosperity.

One of the ways I want to strongly recommend is if you don't have something - alright - and you need it that you examine your own feelings. If you can say out loud - I need...something or other - perhaps you need to sell something, perhaps you need to acquire something - say it out loud someplace where you feel comfortable speaking out loud and notice how you feel in your physical body.

Does your physical body feel tight and uncomfortable? That could mean that you are simply upset because you don't have it but it could also mean that you are resistant, angry or resentful because you don't have it.

If that is the case, and even if it isn't, I'm going to recommend that you say this living prayer as well. I recommend you say, "I am asking that I be able to easily and comfortably let go of all the resistance I have to welcoming my reception of all my needs - that my needs be served for me in the most benevolent way for me and that I experience delight, happiness and comfort in my acquisition of my needs and can express my thank you's with simple graciousness."

Now you might ask why I added that little part on the end. So many of us have been raised in environments where we are encouraged to be rugged individualists and when that happens we often do not learn how to say thank you in such a way as other people feel you mean it.

If you want to test this out, look in the mirror sometime and say, "Thank you." Do you feel uncomfortable saying it? Do you feel uncomfortable hearing it? Check it out too when others say thank you to you. Do you feel uncomfortable? If you do, make up your own living prayer in order to get past that - alright.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Mother Earth Can Help To Soothe You

There is a place on this planet that has special meaning and significance to me. I lived there for some time and still have some connections there. That place is Sedona Arizona. It is a place of great beauty. There are many people there of wisdom and of course knowledge. I bring this out even though most of you know about it because it is a place that has connections to the body of Mother Earth and it is not alone in those particular connections.

You have seen in many places - Spain, Colorado in the United States to name a couple of others - where there is soil and rock and mesa's and so on of red Earth. This has to do with Mother Earth's blood system in stone. It is as if she is trusting us with her blood vessels.

I know that the actual comparison in our bodies would suggest that there is some liquid comparison but if you want to know the actual linear version of what is Mother Earth's blood compared to our blood it is oil but I think many of you know this.

As far as the connection though, to our version of blood with the signs we recognize that makes our blood red - hemoglobin - then red soil and red rock is that.

Why do I mention this? It is possible if you have wounding of the heart, and what I mean by that is old pain and heart hurt, to go to such a place where there is this red rock and if you can find - not some to take, please don't do that for it will lose its capability if it is removed from that place - but if you can find rock that is in place or dirt that is in place there in that location where the red rock and dirt is found you will discover if you spend time there, sit there, lean against the rock and so on and just speak out loud if you remember - not everyone does - about what caused that hurt then you may find that it is to your advantage.

Don't speak in a way that is blaming anyone - yourself or others - rather speak it as if you were a third party. Not like a journalist speaking about something but like a observer. I know that won't be easy for you but I do not wish you to relive what caused that hurt. If you like you can type up something beforehand that you will read and that you feel comfortable reading because all the details are not necessary to give.

But when your body is in contact with that red rock or soil you can find - not for everyone - but you can find very often that that pain level will be reduced and if you are able to do this for 3 different times on 3 different days - it can be done 3 days in a row, I would recommend that it be done on alternate days. Say, spend a week in such a place if possible or even over time. If it can be said while you are touching that rock or dirt it will help.

It is also possible to experience some other forms of benevolence but remember that it is not sufficient to just lean against or sit on or be in contact with that stone or dirt in your clothing. By all means remain dressed but touch the rock or stone or dirt wherever it is safe to do so and feels good to you.

You can touch it with the back of your hand or with your finger tips - alright. I recommend that or if you feel completely safe and comfortable you can touch it with your wrists on the side where you find the palm of your hand. One wrist or the other or if you feel completely comfortable - both wrists. That is a place of profound reception on your body that is available for most people to be touching some thing.

I am not offering any guarantees or health cures here but in terms of old wounding that you have suffered I recommend this.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

The Team

On the way to a better life we have many choices and pathways, don't we.

There is a path of conflict and competition which some use to, as they feel, bring out the best in themselves. To excel, to do what they are able in our position to others and yet even on that pathway there is the desire to work with others - to be on a team and support each other.

Then there are other pathways that involve the team over individuality and yet here we are on Earth in our lives and there is no denying that we are singular as individuals.

We look around and each tree, each flower, each animal is also a singular individual and yet how very often there is the drive - it must be that eh - to be amongst others of our own kind - to support each other, to have our team.

My feeling is that this whole thing with teams whether it be expressed as a sporting event or in the corporate world or in the political world or in the social world or in the professional world - this whole thing with teams has everything to do with our natural desire to work together.

I am not saying that competition is a bad thing, I am not saying that one way is the best way. I am saying that I believe that because our physical bodies are essentially a team - working together - all the elements - to create the best physical self we can achieve - or for that matter in our world the harmony that is still present - the plants and animals in balance with each other to the best of their ability - I feel that we are here to learn the value of teamwork in difficult situations.

From my perception the worlds, other than this planet which is a school, are all involved in teamwork and compatibility. It is a given - that - in those worlds but here where we don't remember who we are in order to learn this, that and everything there is the need to be reminded of the value of the team.

I believe and I have been taught that the team is the way of the future and that teams will continue to become more and more inclusive. Perhaps sporting events will evolve that are more inclusive rather than exclusive. This is happening even now when you look at the phenomena of the broader community of sports enthusiasts.

I believe that we are becoming Team Earth by way of connecting this way from person to person and I also believe that someday we will be Team Universe with the inclusion of ourselves and our culture. Granted, more modified to be benevolent in acceptance of life benign and in the joyous discovery of a variety of life beyond.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Consider The Forest

Acquainting oneself with the environment of trees is invariably a lesson incorporating the harmonious in ones life.

When you consider the way a tree exists - it cannot get out of the way, can it - perhaps to a very slight degree it can but for the most part it is stable. It can produce seeds, often fruit and other in the way of a harmonious contribution. Leaves or needles fall and cushion the ground creating - in time soil to receive the seeds.

I know you know this already but I speak to you today about the heart of the tree. The heart of the tree is not in one place alone just as our heart being is not in one place alone. You could say that it is associated with the tap root which reaches deep into the soil and gives birth to other roots that search out nutrients to support the tree yes but also future generations and in the larger sense - the forest and the life in the forest itself.

Do we do that as human beings? Yes, to a degree but because we have the advantage - or is it a disadvantage - of mobility we are not forced to learn harmony.

The tree must learn harmony because of its stolidness. It remains where it chooses and is invited and of course welcomed to grow. I am speaking here of course of the tree growing through the influences of nature rather than being planted by man.

So, given the example of the tree why might it be that for us as human beings we could be at disadvantage. We must seek harmony as beings of motion.

We have at times in our life cycle moments when we are not in motion. Sleep yes, in our early childhood yes - a little motion there or a motion wrought by others picking us up eh. Sometimes late in life or even during times of injury or illness but other than that we are largely mobile.

How does a mobile being create harmony? You create it of course by the example of other life forms or other people around you.

You see how they live - are they happy? Do they cause others to be happy by their example, by their support, by their interactions? Are our own actions causing harmony and happiness?

This is difficult isn't it because it's easy to interpret those words according to one culture or another which may believe it is causing harmony and happiness within a given realm of existence.

I feel now that the reason there are so many people on Earth and so many different cultures or variations of cultures is that our mobility while it seems to be expanding is also in a sense becoming less so. We are being encouraged to look to the home front. Our families, our friends, our neighborhoods yes. Do we get along? Are we welcomed? Do we welcome others? These simple thoughts and feelings are important in our life.

Consider the forest - I do not feel we are close to such harmony yet but we can consider it as a model.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Kinship Beyond Time

Do you know that there is a co-ordinating element connecting all people's of the Earth and it is being heightened now so as to bring forth much greater co-operation, recognition and memory of past alliances.

This memory of past alliances is going to reach across all races, cultures, religions, nationalities and remind us all when in the company of another or many others - many of whom we won't have any awareness of ever having met in our now lives - that we have something very strongly in common. It is a hidden kinship.

This kinship has only been recently and subtly released into our conscious feeling memory. Now what do I mean by conscious feeling memory? I mean a physical memory in our body that recognizes through the feelings we have in our own body of a concordance between ourselves and others.

This does not have at this time a counterpart in thought. Thought will of course jog our memory very often about some person, place, thing, event and so on but this is different.

This type of feeling memory is the type of thing that you may have had from time to time. Deja vu is an example but also you've had perhaps times in the past when you have met someone and felt that concordance. Oftentimes these meetings result in friendships that can even last a lifetime.

This kind of connection between people's is going to become so obvious to so many people now that you and others will be talking about it around the water cooler, so to speak. In short, it will become a topic of conversation that is so striking, so obvious and so frequent that it will not go unnoticed.

I want to bring this to your attention now because over the next 2 to 3 weeks - yes - you will become much more aware of it as a factor of your daily lives.

It is a good thing this, because it not only brings up that capacity to your mental attention within your physical body - that feeling capacity of knowing but it also reminds you that there have been other times, other places, other lives where we have lived and yes - loved and also been in concordance with - developing friendships and family and greater family with so very many people that are on the Earth right now.

I wanted to remind you that this is here now and it's a happening. Talk about it to your friends if it comes up and encourage them if you would - to welcome it. It can mean the difference between war and peace. It can make the difference between good life for us all with co-operation. It can really make a difference.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Allowing And Accepting - We Can Do This

How often we all feel we have the answer even if only for a moment.

There are times when I read or hear from others - things that work so well for them that I can tell that they are in the enthusiasm of the moment and I wouldn't dream of questioning it but the question that does pop up into my head when they are not so cheerful is - so, does your system work well for you? This would be a cruelty however to say because we all have downtimes don't we.

I believe that we are here to test our beliefs and our attitudes about life that we have incorporated before we have been born here. This is a testing ground and that's why it is so challenging.

This is what I've been taught and this is what I believe on the basis of my experience.

It is easy for us to be critical. Sometimes that criticism comes from our life's experience and we feel justified in providing our criticism but other times it comes from the criticism and judgment of others that we have internalized because those others were important to us at that time or have an ongoing importance to us.

Very often the challenge involved here is that we don't always remember where we assimilated our attitudes and opinions and therefore we find ourselves justifying them or further entrenching ourselves in those attitudes and opinions even though they may derive from judgments placed upon us at a time when we were more vulnerable or perhaps younger or both.

I'm not saying we must remain in constant analysis of our own motives and attitudes. I am saying however that maybe we need to cut ourselves a little slack as well as we might need to cut others some slack too.

It is a difficult world this - for us all and while it's challenging to be patient for what we want and need I believe the more patience we provide ourselves and the more patience we provide to others - not expecting them to live up to some unrealistic standard and not expecting ourselves to live up to it either will ultimately benefit us in allowing us to experience life as it happens in the present moment rather then as we've been told how it should be, how it must be.

And so, that's my thought for today. Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
