Keeping a dream diary is an essential tool on the healing journey, as it is the most economical method of psychotherapy available. Sometimes there are also valuable clues to physical healing, as described in the May 2013 Let Magic Happen Newsletter, Cancer Dream Diagnosis. There are many dictionaries of dream symbols, but it helps to take a multidimensional approach to interpretation. The most useful model I’ve found is described in Healing Dreams by Marc Ian Barasch. In the 7 minute video below I offer two of my dreams as examples.

An abbreviated version of The House of Intuition imagery exercise in Dr. Marcia Emery’s Intuition Workbook led to an unexpected After-Death Communication experience for me a year after my dad’s death in 1994, as described in the April 2013 Let Magic Happen newsletter. Her intuitive problem solving technique can be used for many other purposes as demonstrated in its entirety on this 10 minute video with a shortened version outlined below:

I learned shamanic journeying from radiologist Al Marsh and shamanic practitioner Mary Phyllis Horn who both trained in Core Shamanism with Michael Harner from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. My most dramatic journey is described in the February 2013 Let Magic Happen Newsletter on Shamanic Journeying. It is best to learn from a trained shamanic practitioner, but you can get an initial experience on this 10 minute video with me drumming our way into the lower world. The detailed steps are listed below.

Miraculous stories of Medical Intuitive Diagnosis like in the January Let Magic Happen newsletter are more common than you might think, especially with talented intuitives like Caroline Myss. However, everyone has intuitive abilities, and with training, you may also be able to do remote diagnosis. I learned the simple technique below from Winter Robinson which I have subsequently taught to dozens of people in workshops. Before watching the 11 minute video, please find a friend to do the exercise with who can provide you with identifying information for a target patient.

My first experience of finding coins from heaven occurred as a double synchronicity similar to the one in the December Let Magic Happen newsletter. It happened after hearing a Rhine Center talk by Fred Zimmerman where he described all the mysterious pennies he had received from his son who had died years earlier. I excerpted his stories below from Chapter 8 of Let Magic Happen: Adventures in Healing with a Holistic Radiologist, which includes many examples of after-death communication. My coin stories are in this accompanying 8 minute video.

Cancer can be used as an example of a symbolic disease where blocked emotions may play a causative role along with other factors such as genetics and environmental toxins as described in the November Let Magic Happen newsletter, Symptoms as Metaphors. Similar mind-body-spirit connections can also be found with other more minor symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, hemorrhoids, and postnasal drip. Examples from my own life are explored in this 8 minute video and listed below with symbolic causes from Louise Hay’s Heal Your Body book:

We have the special privilege of a Halloween guest appearance on the blog video this month by Dr. Nicholas Tesla, great-grandson of the electromagnetic genius Nikola Tesla. He will give a shocking demonstration of the Tesla Violet Ray Machine. Local pawn shops may sell similar machines, but you would be better off buying one that actually has proven clinical benefits. Therefore I will also demonstrate four scientifically tested devices from Norm Shealy, MD, PhD. The Halloween 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter is about such Bioelectromagnetic Devices.

In the September 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter I describe numerous studies showing an unexpectedly high incidence of abnormalities of the spine, knee and shoulder on MRI scans in asymptomatic volunteers. The relationship between MRI findings and physical symptoms can be described in terms of four general categories. It is important to determine which one of these four categories you fall into before making treatment decisions based on MRI scans and clinical symptoms.
An explanation is provided below with an accompanying 8 minute video.

The classical medical parody The House of God by Samuel Shem (AKA psychiatrist Stephen Bergman) has been a must read for medical students and residents since its publication in 1978. The August 2012 Let Magic Happen newsletter has more details about The House of God and the somewhat darker and not quite as funny sequel, Mount Misery, another parody chronicling Basch’s psychiatric residency. The Laws of The House of God are listed below and explained in the accompanying 9 minute video.
