this year i’m planning to take a deeper look into magic practices, to educate myself in the art and see if there’s something real in it. i’m having an open mind as there are certain discoveries in science proving without a shadow of a doubt the incredible power of mind which is not limited only to human mind (listen to the waking cosmos podcast — there are talks with scientists who study the mind over matter phenomena). the effects of mind over matter and mind over mind are often very subtle, not having any significant effect on individual basis, but statistically, taking hundreds of thousands of tests over decades, the effects are there with a very high confidence level not leaving them to a pure chance. with all the research done and published, anyone denying the fact of our mind influencing our physical reality directly by still unknown connections is in the rank with proponents of flat earth, flat moon, sun, and flat mars with all the other flat celestial objects. maybe it’s because the still skeptical people living in denial are having a flat mind.. maybe, i don’t know — we need to scan the brains to find out. just because we don’t know yet how our minds achieve certain feats does not eliminate the fact: influence by our minds simply by thinking about something not physically connected to us (by known fields) is real.
the scientifically collected and statistically analyzed data speaks about the reality we live in — our thoughts do influence other minds and even sensitive electronical equipment. the proven effect of even prayers (i’m not religious by the way) on helping to heal people is so significant that even health insurance companies pay for prayers, because they save around 20% percent (in average) on medical expenses compared to people whom there are no healing prayers and/or meditation administered. for me, that has nothing to do with any religion or particular beliefs but with a human intention wishing well. it seems to me that subconsciousness, consciousness, will, intention, attention, and so on, these are real physical phenomena, not exactly the same as a placebo effect, because even people who don’t know that they are meditated upon with good intentions, are also getting real measurable benefit from it. again, on individual basis that effect is hard to measure and often unpredictable, but over thousands of individual cases it generates a significant benefit, so much so that even insurance companies have been persuaded to invest in the practice for their own financial savings. if one doesn’t believe in something that is real, it is still there, regardless of outdated scientific knowledge in old textbooks.
i will take a closer look into magical practices. i will try not to spend much time on the type of magic which is meant to deliberately fool people, but of course i need to learn about ‘show magic’ tricks as well, to be aware of trickery which is possible to explain with known physical phenomena. also, as i have educated myself in clinical psychology, it will help me in many cases which will come up during my research. my mission is to understand if there’s something in ancient and modern practices of real magic which would create certain “mind over mind” and “mind over matter” interactions. will see.
i already began testing magic symbols, “sigils”, to see the effect. some of the sigils i publish on my second wordpress blog.. healthextension.wordpress.com
