Lessons on Magic
Today I launch my classes on Divine Alchemy and Manifestation – accessing and utilizing the technology of sixth dimension consciousness to co-create with God in rebuilding our world from fear into love. The sixth dimension is the layer of consciousness beyond unity consciousness (5D) where we access Divine Guidance in how we are called through our own unique giftedness to make our world anew – or rather, to restore our world to its original nature in LOVE. What I have learned about the sixth dimension is that the tools will appear to our mortal selves to be nothing short of magical and the results nothing short of miraculous. Here we manifest miracles because it is no longer WE who are doing the work, but God doing the work THROUGH us.
This morning, as I sank into a brief moment of doubt around the miraculous and REAL nature of 6D, I was blatantly reminded that with God all things are possible. Part of my daily spiritual practice is to read and reflect on the daily scripture (according to the Catholic lectionary). TWICE in this morning’s readings, the following line came up:
“You are a priest forever in the line of Melchizedek.”
I realize that doctrinally, this line is referring to Jesus, but if we take Jesus’ call seriously, that we are to continue to do his work of making the world into love, then these words are for us as well. It is also not a coincidence that Melchizedek has been showing up in my meditation for years as a teacher and guide, along with his co-teacher and companion, Anna. So, I took these words as a direct reminder that I am a priest (and so are you) and that it is my call to bring forth the fullness of the Divine teachings as they are revealed to me. I believe that the Melchizedek priesthood encompasses magic within its teachings and that Jesus was able to manifest miracles because of his connection with this layer of knowledge. In this I am reminded of Jesus’ own words,
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do.”
John 14: 12

Superhero Report for the Week of October 26, 2014
At this week’s Superhero Academy gatherings (Monday 6:30 – 8:30 and Tuesday 9-11 am), we discussed rejection – specifically, the fear of. In everyday life, and especially in claiming and engaging our Superhero gifts, we experience rejection. In claiming our Superpowers, cultivating, and sharing them, we serve as a reflection to the rest of humanity of their unrealized potential. This reflection serves to poke at their unrealized parts, which then initiates one of two reactions – the desire to stay and learn or the compulsion to run like hell. Second perhaps only to death, we fear our greatness. Only the courageous and persistent and those willing to let go of the life they have known are able to realize their Superhero potential. And when we do, it often ticks people off. It is this fear of rejection that most often stands in the way of our ability to claim, cultivate and share our Superpowers. As a result, dealing with the fear of rejection is one of the final frontiers in the journey toward being a Superhero.
The fear of rejection ultimately arises out of the parts of ourselves that have forgotten we are love. In Authentic Freedom, I offer a formal process through which one is able to heal these areas of forgetfulness, returning us to our original wholeness. I recently discovered there is a shortcut. This shortcut is Ho-oponopono – the Hawaiian ritual of forgiveness. At this week’s Superhero Academy, we learned and put this ritual in practice, specifically as a way of tending toward those places within us where we are resistant to our Superpowers. Specifically related to the claiming and sharing of our Divine call and the use of our Superpowers (spiritual gifts), here is how it works:
- Close your eyes and sit or rest in silence.
- Bring to mind a gift, an invitation, a call that has revealed itself to you – perhaps it’s an idea or a dream you have always wanted to pursue but haven’t yet.
- As you think about this gift, etc. become aware of any areas of constriction that arise in your body – feelings of tightness, tension.
- Be aware of any emotions, thoughts, images that arise, or the voice of doubt, condemnation, judgment telling you all the reasons you should not or cannot pursue this dream.
- Recognize that voice of resistance, doubt, etc. as a part of yourself that has forgotten it is love.
- Silently or aloud, say/pray to that part of yourself the Ho’oponopono prayer formula:
Please forgive me.
I love you.
- Continue this prayer until you feel the resistance in you change, relax or release.
In short, the Ho’oponopono prayer recognizes that we are doing harm to ourselves when we deny our Soul its call, its purpose. As such, saying I’m sorry, etc. is our highest self offering unconditional love and healing to the part of us that is afraid and feeling unloved.
In the coming week, try this formula in every situation where you feel resistant to your dreams and see what happens!
Last night in our gathering of the Superhero Academy, we continued our discussion of Superpowers. (Part I HERE .) This week, we focused on the “non-traditional” or “magical” superpowers. None of these are truly magic, however, because all of them come from God….but then again, isn’t everything that comes from God magic? 😉 The superpowers we discussed are as follows:
- Trans-dimensional vision, hearing
- Time Walking
- Inter-dimensional travel
- Time Morphing
- Soul Retrieval
- Catalyst (aka Shit Disturber)
- Shadow Walking
- Death Walking
Rather than imposing my own understanding of these superpowers, I invited the Superheroes to come up with their own description/definition of these superpowers, acknowledging that there would be no wrong answer. (As a reflection activity, I would invite you to do the same.) The Superheroes arrived at some beautiful ways of understanding these superpowers. I added my own nuance, especially with those, like divination, shadow walker and death walker, which may have gotten a bad-rap in the post-Victorian, Western world.
Divination, quite simply means, seeking and accessing divine guidance.
Shadow walkers are those who are able to walk with others through their shadow, their fears, their compulsions, their darkness.
Death walkers are called and have the gift of being able to accompany another through the transition of dying.
We then identified some important things to remember about the care and use of superpowers:
- All superpowers come to us through God and are how God works through us for the betterment of the world.
- We have the freedom to say “no” to our superpowers, BUT we will probably be hounded (by Spirit) until we say “yes.”
- Superpowers are intended to be used for GOOD, and to use them in any other way will result in dire consequences, not as punishment, but as a natural consequence of putting “bad” into the world. (karma is a bitch!)
- Superpowers are a responsibility….we have the responsibility to cultivate them, care for them, and most importantly, SHARE THEM.
- When using our superpowers, it is important FIRST to seek Divine guidance, direction from our highest self, as to how, when and where we are called to use these powers.
In the coming week, spend some time reflecting on the list of superpowers above. What is your understanding of these superpowers? How might you be gifted with one, or several, of these superpowers? How are you invited to cultivate and share these gifts?
