D.I.Y Magic is a non-fiction read about tapping in to an inner and outer great source of wisdom. It’s about finding a place where you can relax and send feelers out into the Universe of knowledge and discover awareness and a whole new world. It’s aim is to help any creative artist find new sources of inspiration.
The book is set up in simple easy to read small chapters which cover a wide range of techniques which may take you out of the current material world we live in to a different place. There are no great depth of instructions or discussions on theories, these are quick ideas from which the reader can expand their own thoughts and experiences. A few examples of methods to reach magical discoveries are meditation, automatic writing, dreaming, memory quests, and bibliomancy.
This book tries to re-kindle an awareness that we are more than just our material objects but we are part of a larger experience which our ancestors understood and which many of us have lost but which our inner souls know. We find these moments in pockets of experience in a huge range of emotions such as peaceful connections with nature to adrenaline junkie thrills, but they are times when our brains disconnect with our day to day lives and reconnect with a much larger and inspiring feeling.
This book opens your eyes and makes you think about a whole universe of possibilities.
