A Witch's Guide to the Magic of Intention, Raising Your Frequency, and Building Your Reality
Author: Lisa Chamberlain
Everything You Need to Know to Change Your Life for the Better, from Best-Selling Author Lisa Chamberlain "Thoughts become things." "Like attracts like." "You get what you think about." You've probably encountered at least one of these ways of explaining how our habits of thought are actually creating our reality. The Law of Attraction has been a wildly popular topic for scores of "self-help" authors, motivational speakers, and New Age thinkers. But it's often been a source of frustration for readers who can't quite seem to make the Law of Attraction work for them. This is because, all too often, the guides they're reading just barely scratch the surface. Witches know that we can use the focused energy of our thoughts to bring about the healing of illness, more loving relationships, financial prosperity, and the accomplishment of long-held goals and dreams. But there is much more to it than simply thinking about what you want. The Law of Attraction is actually part of a larger framework for understanding how the Universe works. It's one of a set of laws, and our knowledge of them has been handed down to us over several centuries. This guide is an introduction to the Law of Attraction from a Witch's point of view, but you don't have to be a Witch in order to gain plenty of insights here. The information is intended for Witches and non-Witches alike. In fact, you don't have to be "religious" or "spiritual" at all to work with the Law of Attraction. But you do have to have an open mind, and accept that what you've been taught about the nature of reality is incomplete. This is the crucial starting point. Foundations in Manifestation: The Law of Attraction in Practical Magic If you've been curious, yet skeptical, about magic, this book provides the framework you need for understanding how it works. On the flip side, if you're a practicing Witch with experience in magic, but haven't quite grasped the full picture of the Law of Attraction, this book will clarify it for you. But whether or not you ever intend to try any magic, the concepts and suggested practices presented here can get you a long way toward making your goals a reality. You'll discover: - The ancient roots of our current knowledge about the Law of Attraction - How new discoveries in quantum physics support our understanding of this Universal law - Common misconceptions and FAQs about the Law of Attraction - How your own thought patterns hold you back and how to change them - A step-by-step breakdown of how the Law of Attraction figures into magical work - A few spells aimed directly at making the Law of Attraction work for you The principles inherent to magic and Witchcraft can be very useful for understanding how to create positive change using the Law of Attraction. Indeed, If you integrate the practices offered here, you'll see new manifestations develop in your life that feel-no matter what your spiritual orientation-just like magic.

Whereas many recommend a paradigm change in order to cope with modern complexities, Caravantes and Bjur urge executives not to change their operating paradigms, but rather to become paradigm competent, that is, knowledgeable and competent in several ways of understanding and analyzing the working world. Four major paradigms are described: positive science, quantum physics, oriental mysticism, and existentialism. The authors recognize that executives often are obligated to make important choices despite insufficient data and the inability to predict future outcomes. Hunches that one action is to be preferred over others are examples of high-level managers making use of more-than-rational intuitions - defined as knowing without knowing how you know. The authors think of this as a kind of subconscious "magic" not taught or developed in the curricula of schools of management, where the emphasis is on technical rationality and technique. The authors emphasize the importance of subconscious perceptions in enabling an executive's access to infra-conscious, extra-rational, or "magic" capabilities, and discuss some modern techniques that can be used to enhance an executive's magic and charisma. Magic and Management is a fourth book co-authored by Bjur and Caravantes, until now published and marketed in Brazil. Their work is based on three decades of multi-cultural analysis and observation of management theory as it is practiced in many different countries. This work is designed for the experienced manager who desires to enhance personal knowledge and discover inherent, possibly hidden, abilities to excel in leadership.

Essays on Science, Technology, and Society in Latin America
Author: Eden Medina
Publisher: MIT Press
The essays in this volume study the creation, adaptation, and use of science and technology in Latin America. They challenge the view that scientific ideas and technology travel unchanged from the global North to the global South -- the view of technology as "imported magic." They describe not only alternate pathways for innovation, invention, and discovery but also how ideas and technologies circulate in Latin American contexts and transnationally. The contributors' explorations of these issues, and their examination of specific Latin American experiences with science and technology, offer a broader, more nuanced understanding of how science, technology, politics, and power interact in the past and present.The essays in this book use methods from history and the social sciences to investigate forms of local creation and use of technologies; the circulation of ideas, people, and artifacts in local and global networks; and hybrid technologies and forms of knowledge production. They address such topics as the work of female forensic geneticists in Colombia; the pioneering Argentinean use of fingerprinting technology in the late nineteenth century; the design, use, and meaning of the XO Laptops created and distributed by the One Laptop per Child Program; and the development of nuclear energy in Argentina, Mexico, and Chile.ContributorsPedro Ignacio Alonso, Morgan G.

A woman has invited 25 women and 25 men to come and listen to her talk about her book and ask them whether or not to publish it. In a small square room, she finds 23 men have arrived. She stays outside the room and speaks to them telepathically about relationships, honouring the female principle and the meaning of life. What does the story of the Garden of Eden mean? Later she comes into the room and educates them about the role of women and raising the men’s consciousness. She embodies light and takes them into another mental realm. She tests their ideas, surprises and shocks them to help them evolve. One of them finds that the book on the lectern is blank. In the end we realize she hasn’t written a book, but lived it. Maghzi states: This book is one woman's vision which has been reduced to a readable form. This book is about a woman who raises her voice on behalf of those women who have suffered through the centuries! This book is about cutting selfish self's rough and uneven edges in order to become wiser and smarter to circle the wiser and smarter beloved!
Marcus van Alphen reflects on what the role of ceremony may be in today's society. Coming from a Liberal Catholic background, he uses the Holy Eucharist as point of departure. He chooses the broader perspective of Esoteric Christianity and covers such subjects as religion and spirituality, a modern interpretation of priesthood and the principles which led to the founding of the Young Rite.

Arthur Edward Waite writes "The Book of Ceremonial Magic" as a newer and more accurate edition of his previous title "The Book of Black Magic and of Pacts," written in 1898. As most ancient texts on magical literature are rare and hard to come by, it becomes very difficult for modern scholars to ascertain an accurate knowledge of ancient spells and rituals. Waite responds to this lack of accessible literature and approaches this text as a methodical and systematic account of magical procedures of the past. He remains faithful to the original sources before making any conclusions by way of his thorough research methods. Part I provides the reader with essential passages from leading magical texts from the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth centuries. Part II is a more systematically organized version of these ancient texts, adapted by A.E. Waite to the ways of the modern academic. This volume remains one of the best sources of magical procedure, touching on such topics as gods, costume, and the planets and their relation to the supernatural. Although disapproving of the application of magic and the black arts in his introduction, Waite nonetheless defends those victims persecuted throughout history because of their participation in these superstitious beliefs. He also speaks positively about astrology and alchemy, noting them as more important categories of the magical arts. Through this volume, the contemporary reader can finally begin to understand the beliefs in the black arts that were so deeply rooted in our civilization's past.

From the world's favorite manifestations author comes Thoughtless Magic and Manifestations, Richard Dotts' most advanced and groundbreaking work on manifestations to date.In this latest book, bestselling author and spiritual explorer Richard Dotts not only builds upon the fundamental premise which he has explored in his previous 23 international bestsellers, but also takes the science of manifestations to a whole new level with his latest discovery of how various non-verbal protocols can be used for effective manifestations.Existing readers of Richard Dotts' works will know that he has always advocated taking a light touch when it comes to manifesting our desired good. The core of his teachings revolve around the timeless spiritual truth that a light intention, when held purely in our consciousness, is all it takes to create magic and miracles on the outside. In turn, how fast things manifest for us depends on the purity of our intentions and the calmness of our inner states. Those who have trouble manifesting their desires usually find it difficult to "purely" ask for what they want without the corresponding intrusion of negative thoughts. These counter-intentions are the main reason why manifestations do not happen (or are delayed) for so many people. While traditional techniques can help in the reprogramming of our beliefs, the change process is usually slow and leads to considerable negative resistance. For example, repeating an affirmation about a desired positive outcome often throws up more negative feelings and sets up further counter-intentions instead.In Thoughtless Magic and Manifestations, Richard guides readers through the thoughtless manifestations process for the first time in print, a cutting-edge inner technology which allows one to hold their desired intentions purely until they manifest on the outside. Through the use of various non-verbal protocols designed to manifest specific outcomes in life, one is able to hold an extremely pure and laser-focused intention for whatever they desire without also stirring up the corresponding negative feelings. These non-verbal protocols can be applied to various situations in life, from solving problems, manifesting wealth and financial abundance to achieving optimal physical health. Richard also shows the reader how to create their own non-verbal protocols for specific situations. The thoughtless manifestations process represents an evolution in human consciousness and how we can use the power of our intentions to shape our reality. When you learn how to hold your intentions through the thoughtless manifestations process, you attract what you want purely while simultaneously silencing all negative thoughts and counter-intentions that hinder the process. What results is an extremely fast (and in many cases, instant) manifestation of your physical desires.
