I thought I would present this thread to you all in the hope that you can use the information provided to help make positive changes in your own
lives. Make of it what you will, It will have no affect upon my reality
Magic happened to me all the time as a child, I never questioned it, never even mentioned it, I didn't even think it was strange.
Magic manifested itself daily as coincidences. Meeting people, opportunities to experience things, learning things by chance. Too many things to
document in this short post, although I am sure there are many who know what I am talking about.
My teenage years were pretty messed up as I had forgotten about my secret powers, spending years going through formal education being dismantled, but
still they came through, trickling into my life as syncronisities
By the time I reached my twenties, I had already experienced many coincidences I could not explain. I would dismiss these events off hand, although
by this time, having had earlier experiences as a child, I always suspected something inexplicable was happening.
By the time I reached thirty, I was still scratching my head about these strange occurrences, just small things. I could think about a lost friend,
then he/she would get in touch within days. I would be perplexed about a subject and within hours, information relating to it would come to me from
nowhere, completely out of the blue.
Over the years, this happened to me with increasing frequency, The more times I have been bailed out of trouble by coincidences or just pure good
fortune, the more I believed I was receiving help from an unknown source. This conviction grew over time and the more I became convinced that I must
Eventually the weight of evidence that something was going on, completely overwhelmed me to the point that I believed I had been given a gift. This
belief has become a total reality for me over time and this magic has increased exponentially. I ask for help now for everyday things for myself and
for others. If I am doing a tricky job I just ask for help and everything goes smoothly and problems just disappear and it is as reliable as the sun
rising every morning.
My wife and I are not a wealthy people, we don't need to have a lot of money in a bank, if we need money, something always turns up. It simply works
like that and always has.
I try to help others wherever I can. The more I do, the more wonderful things that happen to me. I could relate hundreds of examples of times that
have proved to me beyond any doubt that someone, something, or God is helping me through this life.
I have tried to intellectualize this phenomena many times. The best I can come up with is that I am able to stack the odds in my favor, much like the
random number experiments we see. A computer generates 0's and 1's and then plots a chart. I have done this many times and when I feel confident
with the outcome I can change the odds by focusing my attention.
My belief is, that this phenomena happens to children. because of their innocence, we lose this ability as we grow older and reason our way out of
believing, but we can re-convince ourselves though experience, which generally comes with age.
I would just like to add, that I understand, that not all children have a great life and bad things happen, but I believe that a greater plan is
unfolding in these instances and not for the child but for those involved. These children provide a gift that is not immediately obvious. I believe
with all my heart that they return to a place where they experience great love and peace.
My experiences define the strength of my convictions. If I accepted any other explanation of reality, it would destroy my conviction and the magic
would stop. I don't need anyone to tell me how my reality works, it just does.
If I was asked to give a name to this "thing" I would simply call it "faith" not in an eternal God in a religious sense but just faith that
whatever you need will materialize. Not out of thin air in front of you but in other mysterious ways.
I have never tried shape my reality to achieve anything too ambitious through fear of it not working, and that would shake my faith. Incrementally I
will though, and who knows what potential that could bring.
My interest in science, particularly quantum physics is my search to understand what is happening. I honestly believe the answers can be found here.
My belief is that science has lost it's way, trying to run before it can walk to use an old adage. I think if science pursued an understanding of our
spiritual existence along with our physical existence then many of the mysteries of life would come into focus
Because I know for a fact that I shape my own reality, my assumption is that we all can do it to some degree. A mathematician can dream up the most
eloquent of equations, and test out his theory in a laboratory, which appear to prove his formula is correct. The experiment works and it is
repeatable and he can predict the outcome.
I believe that predicting an outcome and repeating an outcome does not always indicate proof of a deeper understanding. The formulas and equations
could be just the tip of an iceberg and just the beginning of understanding a much greater truth.
A deeper truth could be lost, thanks to good old Occums razor, 'the rule of thumb approach to understanding the universe'. This methodology would
have led early scholars to draw the conclusion that the sun revolved around the earth, the world was flat and that the stars where pinholes in the
One can predict, repeat and prove a hypothesis based on a theory, but an understanding of the underlying principle could be entirely lost on those
seekers of truth. Perhaps the reason somethings repeat in a predictable manner is because scientists believe so completely in an explanation, that it
then influences the collapsing wave function, which then materializes the results to match their own reality.
I remember reading of stories relating to experiments that have been successful in one lab and not in others. Could that be caused by another group of
scientist being skeptical and requiring further proof, until some intellectual critical mass is achieved, at which point the results manifests in the
lab as they expected.
For me I am not overly concerned about the how or why it happens, although I am curious, but I will leave that to the academics to try and explain. I
just know it is real.
