1. You have published over
fifty books, and your new book, Turn Your Dreams Into Reality,
focuses on exactly what the title states. What inspired you to write
your new book?
I was inspired to write Turn Your Dreams
Into Reality because an editor at Llewellyn asked me to
write about how others can apply the techniques I have worked with all
my life in their personal life, as well as in their work life.
Previously, I have written about using these techniques to gain success
in work and business (Mind Power:
Picture Your Way to Success in Business; The Empowered Mind: How to Harness the
Creative Force Within You; Want
It, See It, Get It!: Visualize Your Way to Success; and The Innovative Edge). I have also
written about using these techniques in a specific context—to enjoy
one's travel more (The Creative
Traveler). But, I have never written a more general book on this
topic, which I have used myself for many different purposes. Besides
helping me write many books, I have used what I call GWYW (Get What You
Want) techniques to find where to live, to decide who to trust or not,
to make choices about relationships, to design games, to write songs,
to put together teams to make films, to turn negative experiences into
positive ones, and more. This book is designed to help others similarly
get what they want in life.
2. Turn Your Dreams Into Reality focuses
a lot on the "Get What You Want," or "GWYW," approach to life. How
exactly do you define this approach?
GWYW approach involves using your intuition or powers of visualization
to see clearly what you want in the first place—though some people
might still use this approach if they are more likely to get insights
through words or thoughts (auditory), through feelings, or through just
knowing. Also, one can develop their power of visualization to use
along with these other senses. In any case, the first step is to
visualize or imagine what you want very clearly and assess whether it
is realistic, since some dreams can be simply wishes, where you simply
want something, but don't hope to realistically achieve it. The next
step is to clearly visualize or imagine what you have to do to get what
you want, which can mean coming up with various alternatives. Then, the
third step is to put what you have to do to get what you want into
action, and be ready to modify that action as needed, so you keep
moving towards your goal. Finally, when you achieve what you want,
reward yourself to acknowledge that you have obtained your goal and
praise yourself for doing so.

When we think of meditation, we tend to think of Eastern
meditation techniques. Many are familiar with zazen, for
example—sitting, attending to the breath, and bringing the mind back
from stray thoughts. But what about Western meditation practices? How
are these different? Are they as powerful? Patrick Dunn, author of the
new Practical Art of Divine Magic, maps out a
powerful, theurgic meditation on beauty designed to bring us closer to
Two Energy Exercises to Empower Yourself
by Keith Sherwood & Sabine Wittmann
Creative feminine energy functions as the driving force
of evolution. Feminine energy is universal and life-affirming. It
motivates humans to unite and to experience intimacy with one another.
It can never be taken away from you; because of that, it makes
everybody a healer; a lover; and, on the deepest level, a radiant,
transcendent being who has the capacity to transform the world through
their work and relationships. So how do we increase this energy to heal
ourselves and others? Keith Sherwood and Sabine Wittmann, authors of
the new Energy Healing for Women, provide two exercises
that we can use to increase our feminine energy and empower ourselves.
Mind Reading Quick & Easy
by Richard Webster
Telepathy, or mind reading, can be a daunting topic that
requires us to suspend our beliefs—but in actuality, we're reading
minds in almost every communication we have with others. We use our
powers of observation, along with memories, emotions, and reason, to
work out what other people are thinking about. How can we enhance these
skills, bettering our communications with others? Richard Webster,
author of Mind Reading Quick & Easy, offers a few tips.
