Welcome! Happy Yule, Christmas, Hanukkah, & Kwanza.

My special guest today is my dear friend, Tina Frisco. You know how you meet someone online and as you get to know them you feel like you’ve known them in real life? That’s how it is for Tina and me. I love her philosophical discussions, and her spiritual advice is the best. I recently read her book, Plateau: Beyond the Trees. You can read my review HERE. I’ve recently grabbed a copy of her new book, Vampyrie. It promises to be an interesting read.

Today, Tina shares her thoughts about magic and the possibilities that exist for all of us. ❤

Magic Is Absolute

When I was a small child, I saw magic everywhere – lights around beings, angels floating atop clouds, tiny winged entities riding the suns illuminating rays. All the Earth was alive, and she spoke to me. I would share this with my parents, and their response was always the same: “Oh, you’re just seeing things.” Of course, I was seeing things! I did not know their perception of life was different from mine. With a wave of the hand, they dismissed my reality. I thought I was defective and began to shut down.

I do not resent my parents’ behavior. They did their best with the knowledge they had. Yet over time and repeated denials, I too dismissed my experience as faulty and unreliable. Believing I was flawed, my ability to see the inherent magic in life disappeared. I became a realist.

In my early thirties, I apprenticed to a medicine woman, and my life began to change once again. Deep within me, I knew that all I had seen and heard as a child was not only valid but also undeniable.

We tend to think that ordinary life is reality, a belief reinforced by unmitigated “reason.” We are taught to look no further than what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. We are not encouraged to scrutinize beyond our five senses. This is unfortunate because life is so much more than the realm of the third dimension. String theory had all but proved the existence of dimensions beyond spacetime.

We can explore other planes of existence through practices such as meditation and astral travel. Most of us have had out-of-body experiences; but if they were fleeting or frightening or elusive, we probably discounted them. Yet, they are a vehicle by which to navigate the myriad realms many would call magical, and many more would deny.

I see magic as absolute because it is nonrelative and unquantifiable. It is the infinite cosmos from which our third-dimensional reality is conceived.

Taught to fear what we do not understand – what we cannot see with our physical eyes or touch with our physical hands – we confine our thinking and preclude limitless possibility. As Hamlet said, “Thinking makes it so.” Within our finite view of existence, we refer to the supernatural as magic, when it is merely beyond our understanding.

The good news is: We do not have to comprehend something to accept it as being possible. Once we open our minds to the infinite, magic takes the helm and life becomes an exquisite journey.

  1. What an interesting post, Tina. I used to mix with quite a few people with similar ideas but am a bit out of touch at the moment. There is more to the universe than most of us understand. 🙂

  2. Tina, your words here are spine-tingling and bring back to life my childhood love for magic…sometimes I feel it around me, too often I ‘think too much’. A wonderful thought-provoking post that has left me pondering and musing. Xxx
