Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time

Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time

Introduction

What is it that happens when we step into our creativity? In this article, we shall look at embracing your creative journey actually creates a new way of living that is like tapping into a Bigger Magic from before the dawn of time. 

Elizabeth Gilbert’s interesting assertion 

As you may have seen me discuss before, Elizabeth Gilbert has released an amazing book called ‘Big Magic’ which brilliantly describes the creative process. Although the book does not provide any scientific mechanism for how the creative process works, the way she describes creativity very much fits The Genius Groove.

She has personally discovered that creative ideas sit outside of the self and partner with us in order to be birthed into the world. She also said something else that made me realise perhaps there is bigger magic at play in the world that she may not know about.

During the book, she clearly says that you should not ask for your creativity to financially support you to pay the bills. If it ends up doing so, as in her case, then fine but she believes that she is an exception, not the rule. In other words, she asks you to not follow your passion as your career which is the opposite of the advice of many others.

Stepping onto my true path 

This was very interesting to me. Those of you who have read The Genius Groove will know that I was catapulted onto my current career path, after a series of events which ended with me leaving a career in medicine. I did not intend to suddenly leave the medical profession in that way. My ex-husband and my parents made a case to the General Medical Council that I was not mentally fit after I separated from my husband, citing my multidimensional abilities as evidence.

I myself would have liked to have carried on working part-time in General Practice whilst writing on the side. Hand on heart though, I know I would not have been able to fully commit to the new book and a new way of living had I stayed in such a fear-based paradigm as medicine. The whole setup is to fix people who are ill therefore this is a paradigm that says that illness is a problem, not a learning experience and that it should be eliminated rather than understood.

Dipping in and out of this paradigm on a regular basis would realistically have meant that Punk Science would have been written in a very different way, if it had been written at all. But back in 2002, my immediate question was, how would my creativity support me? Well the answer is, I somehow did get supported. Partly through my repentant ex-husband when I moved back into my house after the loss of my job. I paid my personal expenses through healing clients and talks and it was always just enough to keep me going, whilst he paid the mortgage.

The Road to Abundance 

Eventually, I met my current partner, James who has in fact invested a lot of time and money into supporting my career because he believed in what I was doing. For me, the situation has been less than ideal as I would have preferred to have fully supported myself, but I have realised that somehow, yet again my creativity has been supported. I noticed that bigs shifts came when I started really believeing in myself and what I had to say in the world. 

So I somehow have managed to survive what should have been a catastrophic loss for many years now. I have also lived an incredible life by following my creativity. I have been flown around the world to speak at conferences and met many wonderful people. It seemed the more I let go of, the more wonderful experiences came my way. So the very thing that should not have supported me has in fact brought me great abundance in terms of experiences and enough financially to carry on doing what I am doing.

Living the New Paradigm 

I have found that other people too are stepping onto this path. They are leaving conventional professional careers and are somehow managing in a way that they could not have imagined whilst still in the straight-jacketed career and dependent on the monthly paycheck.

Very few are earning enough to retire to the Bahamas, but that isn’t what a lot of them want anyway. Usually, they just want to earn enough to cover their basic bills and expenses so that that are free to be creative and to follow their mission. In the book, The Genius Groove I call this way of life New Paradigm Living but really it does defy explanation or rules.

What is interesting is that this way of living does exist and it seems to unfold once a person has really committed to their creative path and their spirituality. It is almost as if people slip through the cracks of the rules of 3-dimensional life whilst still living within it, tapping into a bigger magic from before the dawn of time! 

Another thing I have noticed is that when people flounce out of their previous lives saying they are going to ‘make art’, they do not necessarily enter this state of New Paradigm Living. It seems to be entered into in a centred way, when the way is made clear, rather than when the ego self wants it to happen. 

Conclusion and further information 

So Elizabeth Gilbert I disagree with you. Sometimes by committing to your path and your authenticity in a centred way, a different path opens up. The universe can show you a different dimension, a slip door in the back of the wardrobe: the bigger magic from before the dawn of time.

Angels on my TV

Angels on my TV

In 2007, I was invited to the studios of Press TV in West London alongside the world-renowned author, Diana Cooper to discuss the Science of Angels. But soon I was also discussing some of my angelic experiences.

The whole day was pretty amazing as the Press TV studios were very well equipped and plush, with makeup artists for all the ‘talent’ as well. Some time later, I made several trips to the then BBC studios nearby and it was disappointingly drab in comparison. This interview was actually my first taste of the live TV set up in a studio even though I had already appeared in several documentaries. This studio experience came in handy later when working for The People’s Voice TV.

I am delighted to find that this interview has now resurfaced on Youtube courtesy of the presenter Rebecca Masterton who did a great job. So here is the discussion on Press TV about The Science of Angels. It is in several parts.

 

Have you ever had an encounter with angels? Please leave your comments below. 

The Science of Angels is just one of the topics discussed on the Online Course Simply Divine as well as the science of tarot, energy healing, the law of attraction and much more. Click the button below to find out more about Simply Divine

Harry Oldfield and the Invisible World

Harry Oldfield and the Invisible World

Harry Oldfield has been an important figure in the field of alternative health for many years. He is a scientist and inventor and his invention of the Polycontrast Interference Photography or PIP has allowed us to perhaps look into dimensions of the universe otherwise invisible.

I feel he is a real unsung hero. I am just so honoured to know this gentleman. On our very first meeting I was attending one of his talks. The organiser of the lecture had given Harry my paper – Quantum Bio-Cosmology and Harry had read it in the car on the way to the venue.

When I introduced myself and he realised I was the author he shook my hand and said that it was an honour to have me in his lecture.

And it has gone on from there with a mutual respect for each other’s work.

So I was excited to have the opportunity to present the idea to the Hidden Science team of doing a special dedicated to Harry Oldfield and his work which indeed we did.

You can see the results in the video below. Enjoy!

Your authentic message

Your authentic message

So you are in touch with your authentic message, but you just don’t know how to connect with people. Here are some common mistakes to avoid and some guidance – things I have learnt along the way in my speaking and writing career.

 

The Coffee Shop Conspiracy

I’ve seen it happen dozens of times. When someone has something they want to publicise they carefully print a load of leaflets – sometimes to great expense. They talk to all the kind coffee shop owners who agree to put their leaflets out on the coffee bar. They send out press releases. They book a time and a venue and then they wait: sure that their shiny new leaflets will have a great response.

And nothing happens, nobody comes. By this time the person is out of pocket by a significant amount having printed the leaflets and hired the venue complete with teas and coffees. Humiliated, they give up and never try to publicise their event or product again.

From social to coffee shops 

Then, along came social media. We were told that this is the new Holy Grail. I have seen authors ponder for weeks before finally signing for a twitter account suspicious of the genre. Then they start to tweet. And again nothing happens. Tweeting becomes then the online equivalent of leaving loads of leaflets in a coffee shop.

All of these methods, be it leaflets in a coffee shop or tweeting to the wide world have something in common. You are sending your message out to people who haven’t told you that they are interested hoping that some of the message is going to stick.

Who is ready to receive you?

It is far better to target your message to people whom you know are going to have some interest in you before developing a long term relationship with them before you actually sell them anything.

By the time that this happens, your audience should be ready and understand who you are so will consider what you have to offer. Gradually they should also trust you and believe the product is going to be something that they want from the free content that you have already given to them.

Creating your Customer Avatar 

The internet is awash with advice on how to find your target market. Often the advice is to break this down into a theoretical person or avatar. Imagine who they are – male or female? What is their name, where do they hang out either online or offline? Slowly you can build up a picture of your customer avatar and their wants and needs. Why do you think they will be interested in your authentic message?
