Magic at Work
Magic is always at work in our lives! We get a lot of feedback from our students about their magical experiences, here are some of our favorite stories:
The Great Dog Escape
My lesson in “Basic Magic” came to the rescue recently in an adventure I call “The Great Dog Escape”. Without magic, New Year’s Eve 2001 could have meant Auld Lange Syne for me and Birgit, my Arctic white wolf/Akita cross, and her mate, Bjorn, the Chow Chow mix. Birgit absolutely hates fireworks, so she tunneled out from under the six foot chain link fence (with hot wire) during the festivities of the neighborhood, though I had given her an herbal anxiety remedy. I returned from a potluck to find nothing but a hole under the fence and a tuft of wolf hair.
After searching frantically and calling the dogcatcher, I calmed down and began to use the “water bowl”, a technique the “Basic Magic” class had just learned (for finding lost objects and for telepathic communication) the night before the break-out. At first, I saw Birgit’s head exploding, which I translated as bad news. Over the next few days, I connected with the dogs and felt their life force, a great relief. Birgit let me know the firework explosions made her crazy in the head. Bjorn “said” he just went along for the ride, but he was now very sorry because he had something stuck between his eyes. Both communicated they didn’t know how to get home. I told them we needed a third party to help us, because I didn’t know where they were.
Four days after their departure, the two escapees were brought home by the dogcatcher. They had taken refuge in someone’s doghouse, where they were found and reported. They came home tired, hungry, thirsty and smelling strongly of skunk. Birgit apologized in dog “body language”, though she seemed relieved because I had assured her in the “water bowl” conversations that she wasn’t in trouble. And Bjorn had a porcupine quill between his eyes, a real confirmation of the accuracy of the “water bowl” technique.
Using the “water bowl” to contact the dogs kept me from untold grief during the beginning of the New Year, a time I use to envision my goals for the rest of the year. Had I a bit more practice with the technique, I probably could have even found the dogs without the help of the family with the doghouse and the dogcatcher. I plan to board the animals for New Year’s Eve next year, but I am practicing the “water bowl” technique in case I ever need to help someone else.

Healing a Hawk
Shortly after I began Magic class, my husband and I were driving down from the mountains back to town. As we drove on the highway, my husband saw a beautiful hawk sitting on a fence post and just as he started to point it out to me, the hawk took off and flew head first at top speed into our windshield. In the rear view mirror, my husband saw him land at the side of the road after being thrown over the top of the car. Our windshield was broken with 3 large crack marks down the middle to attest to the force with which the hawk hit. We just knew he could not have survived the impact, but stopped anyway to see if we could do anything. My husband found him at the side of the road and miraculously he was still alive, but something was terribly wrong with his left wing. It just hung uselessly looking like it was hardly attached anymore. He stumbled along the ground as my husband approached unable to fly away and looking seriously hurt. I then remembered what I had been learning in Magic class and thought it couldn’t hurt to try some energy boxes. I first threw him a couple of boxes of sun yellow and then some powder blue air and clear air boxes with various characteristics in them. Suddenly the hawk took off just as I had thrown my last box and we watched him soar, flap and use that wing like nothing had happened. We watched until he had totally flown out of sight and I was sure he would be fine.

Communicating With Ghosts
I have a friend who is a very practical, grounded sort of guy. He does not believe in things he cannot see or explain to himself. Throughout my magic class however, he had to admit that what I was doing had merit even though he could not understand it. I had done several healing techniques on him that had wonderful results that he could not deny. Now in his house everyone who has spent any time there knows that there is some type of spirit living there. It knocks things over, flushes toilets at night, and generally does all sorts of things we have always thought were along the lines of practical jokes. One day it moved a heavy dresser that it had taken 4 grown men to move across the room. My friend finally admitted that he too believed there was something there and asked me if I could find out any information about it. Through pendulum work and Tarot readings, I was actually able to get quite a lot of information about why this spirit was in this particular house, a name for him, some basic information about him, what the “practical jokes” were really about and I passed this information on to my friend. From that time on my friend began to talk to this entity by name and include it as part of the family. The “practical jokes” stopped as the spirit now had the attention it was trying to get. One night my friend was asleep and had fallen asleep with the heating pad on his shoulder that was sore. He dreamed of this spirit friend by name and that it was telling him to wake up and put out a fire. It was such a vivid and real dream that my friend could actually feel the heat of the fire. He suddenly woke up and found that the heat he was feeling was not just in the dream. It was real. Something had malfunctioned with the heating pad and it was smoking and beginning to burn him. He turned the heating pad off from his half sleep and thanked his spirit friend for the warning, he did not however unplug the pad from the wall outlet. He returned to sleep with the heating pad now on the floor next to the bed. Again he dreamed of his spirit friend trying to wake him up and leave because the house was all in flames. He awoke to find that the heating pad was still smoking and had just started a flame on the carpet next to the bed. It could have turned into a house fire easily if his friend had not come to him in Dreamtime and awakened him.

Mike Stubblefield’s Story
My intention in this class is to learn new paradigms in my observation of “reality.” That allows me more options and choices that I never had in my life before. A good technique is grounding out fire energy, which for me is often in the form of anger. When I was nearing explosion in an argument with my wife, rather than continue on that path, I went and laid down on the floor, put my bare feet on the range, blew red orange (anger) out of me until it was like, “OK I don’t need to do this blow up. There are lots of other choices.” I didn’t escalate the fight any further – it was wonderful. It was a change as much in the energy as in the dialogue. My wife is really sensitive to energy. After I had flowed out the red orange, she said, “OK, something’s different.” We ended up tabling the discussion for later instead of continuing the fight. I was so glad we learned to ground out our anger by hugging the refrigerator or flowing into the range. I didn’t actually feel the anger leave me, but suddenly I felt the effect of it leaving. At first, I’m steamin’ mad, the floor is cold, the range is cold. Suddenly it was like “Ahhhh…” and the anger left me. If I told my friends about this experience, they would laugh so hard and ask me, “What planet are you from?” These magical practices work great!
My husband and I were coming back from Christmas vacation. We were driving from Alabama to Colorado. We had both (unbeknownst to each other) put an omnil around our van to protect it and make it invisible to police and radar when we were traveling over the speed limit.
As we approached south Denver we decided to use the toll road for which my husband had a transponder. This is a device that allows us to drive at speed through an electronic toll gate that sends down a signal which is received by the transponder and sent back registering every time we go through a gate. The toll is later charged to our account. The transponder beeps to let you know it has registered.
We drove through the first gate and there was no beep! We were surprised and discussed the possibility of what would happen to us. Would they send police after us for running the toll gate? We decided to stop at the next gate and as we slowed down for the attendants’ window the transponder beeped and he told us not to worry about the previous gate.
We proceeded to the next gate and drove under it and AGAIN there was no beep. We started to discuss what could be wrong when we both remembered we had placed omnils around the car. We took down our omnils and drove through the last two booths with the transponder beeping happily. We had quite a giggle over our safe drive home. No tickets, no mishaps, and no toll police.

Tarot Spell Transforms Family Farm
Exactly a year ago a friend asked if I could help her with a family situation. The grandfather began a large commercial farm which has been handed down through the family, and everyone owns shares. The members of the family who are actually running the farm (orchards) at this time were doing some practices which my friend was not happy with, and not philosophically aligned with. She decided to sell her shares, and so did her 2 sisters. There was great concern that dividing the farm and disconnecting from the family inheritance was going to cause some larger undesirable issues within the family. I did some initial journeying, and worked with the Archetype of the family and “mean” Uncle. Then we decided to do a Tarot Spell. So the spell was to make the separation as smoothly, and with fewest repercussions as possible, and have the outcome be for the highest good of all. Without going into details of the Tarot Spell, I will share with you the outcome.
The family issues have been a long standing aggravation, and split in family relations. It is now exactly one year later. My friend recently returned from a trip to meet with her family and begin the selling of her stocks. Instead when she got there she found there had been a total reversal in the operating ethics of her family. Most of the things she wanted had already been put into motion by her family members, the farm is now 3/4 organic, and the rest soon will be, they are forming a board of directors to assist in decision making, they are employing new management methods, they are calling in experts in the areas they want to move into as consultants, etc.
The point is, it turned out just as Alan has been telling us it would. It is a year later (Alan said Tarot Spells build over a 1-2 year period gaining momentum with time), and even more than she had expected is occurring as the results (we will get more than our imaginations can see when we work with the winds).
Enjoy your Magickal worlds!
Love and Light,
