More Dish on the Disbelievers

In a recent post on the functioning of magickal energy, I was confronted with comments from a couple of posters who presented the pseudo-skeptical, pseudo-scientific and so-called debunking position. As I have repeatedly pointed out, some of the techniques of this position consist of: 1) Demanding proof but not saying what will happen if you […]

A Ohe Pau Ko Ike I Kou Halau

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I recently assisted at a training for 175 people who wanted to be certified as NLP practitioners. In that post I wrote that “NLP [Neuro-Linguistic Programming] is a set of tools that will allow you to communicate better with yourself (between the conscious and subconscious mind) as […]

Five Keys for Magickal Success

Currently, I am in Irvine, California, assisting in a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) training. NLP is a set of tools that will allow you to communicate better with yourself (between the conscious and subconscious mind) as well as communicate better with others in order to achieve ecological goals. For the purposes here, ecology means good for […]

Would You Listen to Someone Who Says Not To Listen to Him?

A little over two years ago I took my Master Practitioner Training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The main trainer, Matt James, had just received his doctorate. Some time earlier, he had become the head of a small university in Hawaii, and now he was proud to announce that the university had achieved accreditation, making its degrees as […]

“Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”

Do you remember the first time you heard that line? I do. There had been an enormous line around the theater in San Diego. A friend and I walked to the front of the line and asked if there were any tickets left for the current show. “Only in the front row,” we were told. […]

The Map is NOT the Territory

The expression “the map is not the territory” is a concept found in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It’s meaning is very similar to the concept of Maya in Tantra. In ancient Tantric concepts, as in modern Western science, the physical universe is seen as an incredible collection of energy. The stars are energy. The chair you’re sitting […]

School’s (May As Well Be) Out Forever

Before I start I’d like to remind all my friends in San Diego (glad you have your lights back on!) that I’ll be at Balboa Park, tomorrow, September 10, for Pagan Pride day. I’ll be speaking on Past Lives at 11:00, so come out and spend the day. And next weekend I’ll be coming to […]

Did the Golden Dawn Presage NLP?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming, NLP, consists of a large set of techniques for achieving excellence. The result of such excellence is improvement in your life and your ability to interact with others in such remarkable ways that it seems magickal. Indeed, the first book on NLP was titled The Structure of Magic. The cover implied that the […]

French Lick?

Yes, I know the name sounds like something from a bad porno film. In actuality, French Lick, Indiana, is a real town. It is the home town of NBA great Larry Bird. People visiting the casinos there included boxer Joe Lewis and gangster Al Capone. Franklin D. Roosevelt announced his intention to run for President here. […]

Remembering the Past

Many years ago, when I lived in San Diego, I was a member of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood, AMORC, and a founding member of the lodge there. Most people familiar with AMORC from their at one time omnipresent ads in magazines such as Popular Mechanics and FATE know them for their mail order lessons. What many […]
