  • Bridging Here With The Hereafter – by Hercules Invictus

    For my final Labor King Eurystheus charged me with fetching Hades’ hound, triple-headed Kerveros. In order to purify me for this task, for no one who is impure can traffic with the Gods Below, the goddess Demeter herself inspired her initiates at Eleusis to institute a new holy rite to honor her daughter Persephone.

    I bet you have a tale about a bridge that you could make a story out of. In fact, everyone has been affected at one point in time or another trying to get somewhere and found the quickest way was over a bridge.

    My masterpiece is my life.  It is something I am familiar with and create day by day.  Now mindset is not always peaches and cream, rosy, flowers or chocolate pancakes.  Yet since learning about “The Secret” my life has taken a dramatic upward swing.  Once my momentum built it was crazy.  Crazy in a good […]

    On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's by Greg O'Brien - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    Greg O’Brien has a story to tell to anyone who can read or listen. He tells this story with passion and an urgency that truly mirrors the compelling energy of the subject matter; Alzheimer’s disease. The statistics he shares are filled with sobering numbers such as: the number of individuals 65 and older living with Alzheimer’s will triple  to 13.8 million within the next 36 years and the fact that Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death and that it is the only disease whose cause of death figures ARE on the rise. This is merely the tip of the iceberg here and yet this doesn’t explain why O’Brien is vigilant in his need to educate as many people as possible. Well, you are invited to read ON PLUTO: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s which O’Brien wrote about his personal experience with this disease to learn more.  O’Brien, himself, was diagnosed at age 59 with early-onset Alzheimer’s and for the past 6 years has been living with the disease and ...

    The Story Reading Ape, An Author Promotion Enterprise

    It’s a jungle out there if you are an Indie Author!  At least this is how it seems for many who attempt to make their mark in world of writing, publishing and promoting books. There is so much to learn not only about what to publish, but where, how and with whom. Are there others out there going through the forests same as you? Is there anyone around who can help you feel a bit more secure and less alone? Might someone be able to help you avoid the pitfalls and traps? There are snakes in much of that tall grass so the more you know, the more likely you are to learn how to swing from tree to tree without leaving yourself to die on the vine.  It would be divine to have a guide, someone who knows the ropes or at least where to find one that can hold you…  Heck, even Tarzan and Clint Eastwood partnered with primates and look what it did for their lives!  Writers, ...

    Legends of Time, Inner Peace - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on May 1, 2015

    Soothe your soul, bring peace to your mind and find a connection with Spirit when you listen to the music of award-winning artist, David A. Martinka. For several years now I have enjoyed his melodious compositions and performances via the CDs he has available on his websites: www.redbellymusic.com and www.sunshadows.net and I would like to invite YOU the party.  David is a 5th generation musician and uses his gifts to blend Native Slovak and Native American Flute music together. The relaxing tones are a great accompaniment for meditation or healing times but rest assured that you need not be in need of either meditating or healing to enjoy David’s music as you can listen anytime you like! I personally enjoy popping the CD, Legends of Time II, Inner Peace in while I am writing, reading and especially at night as I am drifting off to sleep.  I find the music helps me think deeper, can help me cultivate a calmness and keeps me company. You will find many musical offerings ...

    Healing with Whole Foods - By Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Feb 1, 2015

    Greetings!  I am here to share with you my enthusiasm for a book that was gifted me as a birthday present only recently and I am wondering why it took so long for the two of us to come together. Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford is in its third edition with over half a million copies sold worldwide. It was first published in 1993 and most recently the copyright renewed in 2002. Here is the publishing information so take note as it is my hope that you will be chomping at the bit to order your copy by the time I have finished what I have to say about this book.  You will find it in the Health /Nutrition section of your book seller and the ISBN number is 978-1-55643-430-3 and it retails for $35 US and $43.95 Canadian.  Oh yes, the publisher is North Atlantic Books, Berkley, California www.northatlanticbooks.com This book (753 pages) blends authentic Asian medicine traditions with current Western research of health and nutrition, and as ...

    The Desire Map - By Danielle Laporte

    Posted by Mary K Weinhagen on Feb 1, 2015

    What if knowing how you want to FEEL is indeed the most potent clarity you can have? *spoiler alert* It is! I have to confess that when I picked up The Desire Map (a guide to creating goals with soul) by Danielle Laporte I already had a bias. I LOVE Danielle's work. This remarkable, magical, book is like taking a sacred journey to discover a new you while showing you what real success entails. And it has, in so many ways, changed my life. The Desire Map is actually two books in one - Book One provides The Theory, while Book Two is The Workbook.  I highly recommend you thoroughly explore all of it... yet the beauty is that when you need a bit of inspiration you can dig into theory... when you're ready for a bit of action you can dig into the workbook. And it really won't matter which order you choose to do it in. I dearly wish I could sum up Danielle's theory in a sentence or two, but that would be ...

    The Superyogi Scenario - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jul 1, 2015

    It would never have been my first choice, to read a book about super heroes saving the world from certain destruction. Never read comics regularly, unless you count the Sunday papers and then it was Family Circus, Blondie and Garfield. So when The Superyogi Scenario landed in my lap I was less than enthusiastic about cracking the cover. Of course I was scheduled to interview the author, James Connor and I DO read the books of those I am interviewing on the radio so it HAD to happen, eventually. With a mere 3 days left before the interview I took a deep breath and began my long day’s journey. When I finally came back up for air, I was more than 3 chapters in and totally hooked! Yes, The Superyogi Scenario has all the elements of a terrific thriller, layers of intrigue, complex characters and of course the compelling need for good to triumph over evil.  Yet what I never expected was for Connor to be able to take fantasy and ...

    Soul Medicine - by Linda

    Posted by Linda Lang on Mar 2, 2015

    I love self exploration. Edgar Cayce’s direction to “Know thyself” carries the call to explore your very own inner frontier. I love the idea of channeled spiritual artwork that can move you in a very personal way, and bring you awareness and confirmation.   I'd like to introduce you to one such artist, Sharon Bosmoore. She is an international Spirit Artist and Art Shaman, offering her gifts as a spiritual guide and mentor for sensitive souls, creatives and healers.  I met Sharon through an online event and I was really drawn to her work.   Sharon's art taps into higher frequencies of universal energy and the spirit world to activate healing and awakening.  Her art helps you align with your deeper wisdom, your creative genius, your sacred path, and helps you find the 'soul esteem' to live with purpose, meaning and self trust.   She lives in Australia and we had our session over Skype. Sharon is very down to earth, and I enjoyed spending our time together, not to mention how fascinating it was to watch my spirit drawing unfold in ...

    The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There are more than a lot of books on the market these days that try to teach us how to make our lives better.  What I believe sets The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt apart from other books in the spirituality category, is the sincerity of Schmidt. One gets an immediate sense of genuine authority from the start yet it is not about authority over the reader or even life, it’s about authority over herself.  See, this book gives us the steps Schmidt took to bring herself into balance which in turn has allowed her to live a more peace-filled life. The tools Schmidt refers to include meditation and mantra which when coupled with the step-by-step instructions, create an outline that pretty much anyone willing to do the work can use to achieve positive results. Naturally the impetus for Schmidt’s transformation will not resonate with some but because she illustrates her success with her true-life examples, we find ourselves considering that ...

    Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jul 1, 2015

    Perhaps we are being prepared our entire lives to do an be whatever it is we are being called upon to be doing and being while here in this earth in this particular incarnation. This is exactly what was running through my head as I finished reading Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child ©2015, Prospecta Press. Perhaps there are people we will meet, places we are drawn to make our homes as well as jobs we choose simply because the journey we came here to experience requires this. Yet at the time this is not completely apparent. Ariyana’s experiences in what will be her first book (of this I am certain) weave this thought into reality and does it so well that you will find yourself pondering your own life at the end of each chapter.  What is so cool about the thought provoking chapters is that at the end of each, Ariyana provides us with space to post our “reflections” encouraging us with questions as guides. The book chronicles ...

    Spiralizer Recipe Book by Stephanie Shaw - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Sep 1, 2015

    For those who are eating Paleo or gluten free or if you are someone who just loves new and exciting ways of preparing vegetables, this IS the book for you!  Stephanie Shaw has written and published a true gem with Spiralizer recipe book, spiralizer recipes for weight loss, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and so much more!  The recipes are easy to follow and of those I have been able to try thus far, are delicious. I suggest the Butternut Squash Pasta and the Sweet Potato with Green Curry which uses two of my favorite flavors; curry and coconut. She has even created a Vegan Alfredo Pasta that uses zucchini as the “pasta”, YUM! Using the spiralizer is easy and allows you to create wonderful meals that everyone can enjoy. Make sure you get yourself a copy and be sure to gift one to someone who likes to eat!  * I did receive a copy of this book for an honest review *

    The Gift of Cancer - A Life Changing Book - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

      More than likely every life on this planet has been touched by cancer at some point.  Perhaps a family member, a neighbor, your former teacher or even your beloved family pet received the diagnosis. Imagine now that YOU yourself were to hear those words spoken to you about YOU.  How would you react?  What would you do in such a case? Well I know how one young lady handled it, she used her diagnosis to turn her life around and in the process was completely healed AND used the process she went through to write a book to help others. Wendy Treynor. Ph. D. wrote The Gift of Cancer – A Life Changing Book – because that is how she saw it and that is what happened. This book is not only remarkable because it is a true story it IS the story. Filled with journal entries, hand drawn illustrations and the revelations of the true meanings of life and love, you will find a reason to celebrate the gift of ...

    The Staircase on Pine Street - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jun 1, 2015

    . How does Alzheimer's disease affect a little girl?  How does that little girl's grandfather handle being the one afflicted? What role does the man's daughter play in this scenario? All of these questions are beautifully addressed in the book The Staircase on Pine Street written by Mariana Llanos (and illustrated by Kate Gattey). In this short but touching tale we are immersed into the worlds of all 3 characters enough to empathize with each of their lives whether or not we have been personally touched by this disease. Kudos to Llanos for using knowledge gathered from several sources to develop a story line that appears to have been lifted directly from first-hand experience. By her own admission this is not auto biographical yet the reader would never walk away feeling this was anything other than true-to-life. Because the child, Lilly, is the one around whom this story revolves it makes this book perfect for young people.  It is written with an innocence that will transport any one or any age back ...

    Universal Energy Online Store and Family Constellations - By Sheri

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Feb 1, 2016

    This month I want to introduce you to Kim Muzzi in Guelph Ontario.  Kim has an online store selling a variety of Orgones and offering numerous services which can be provided online as well as in person. I asked Kim to explain what Family Constellations is and here is her awesome response: "Family Constellations allow us to break patterns of suffering so that we can live healthier, happier, and more fulfilled lives. Bert Hellinger is the founder of this work. He studied and treated families for more than 50 years and he observed that many of us unconsciously “take on” destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of “belonging” in our families. He witnessed how the bond of love can cause a child to sacrifice her own best interest in an attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. Family Constellations is a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations and, as ...

    SELF-AID: Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    Personal triumph is a remarkable feeling and when we can share tools we have used to achieve this remarkable feeling with others, then we can experience the full circle of oneness. In her book, SELF-AID: Inspirations to Turn Struggles into Success, Helen Woo accomplishes just this.  Each page is filled with the wisdom and wit of not only the author but others who have found their way through the darkness in to the light. What is unique is that Helen Woo doesn’t focus on the details of the story that brought her to writing this book as many ‘self-help’ books are want to do.  In fact one is presented with statements such as “…to overcome my struggles and inspire me to look for the light when I feel trapped in the darkness.” And “They help me achieve more daily and motivate me to take action when needed.” So one gets the idea that everything written in this book has the potential to help ANY person in any GIVEN situation which is ...

    Sharing The Local Community - by Sheri

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Jan 1, 2016

    Lately I have noticed there isn't a lot of sharing or promoting of smaller businesses.  The cute little shops we love to go in or visit webpages exist only as long as they are utilized.  It's important we support the folks who work so hard to bring us their one of a kind products and services.  We should support one another in our endeavours as a global community and keep the uniqueness of a handmade gift or service geared to our well being. Each month I am going to review a small business that offers shipping and/or services that can be done over the web.  This year lets make the little guy/gal our priority and lift one another up instead of competing.  No two products or services are exactly alike, each person add their own magic and spark even if they may look similar.  It is hard enough to compete with big names without the pettiness spilling over to our greatest gifts of talented people who provide and/or make beautiful things with ...

    L.I.F.E. Nutrition and The Art of Clean Eating - by Sheri

    Posted by Sheri Sennhauser on Mar 1, 2016

    I have a confession to make...... up until January of this year the thought of "clean eating" scared the heck out of me.  My focus was always about loss.  I didn't want to stop eating certain things and couldn't bring myself to look at the substitutions seriously.  I would find a recipe and as soon as there was an ingredient I had never had before my nose turned up, my upper lip would  curl and the word "YUCK" was passing through my lips. However my body had become so unbalanced and unhealthy I knew SOMETHING had to be done.  Some weight loss would be nice but I was looking for a holistic method of helping my body deal with the Overlapping Connective Tissue Disease.  The autoimmune disease means my body is constantly at war with itself and it felt like there was no balance.  I would go to extremes of being too acidic one week to nothing the next.  I discussed my situation with my family doctor and he suggested looking ...

    Review of Crow Cross Roads Spell Candle Company - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Jan 1, 2016

    In this day and time, it’s easy to come by candles and wax melts. Every dollar store has then but if you prefer long lasting, good quality, you may want to shop the small specialty stores for that special scent. I personally prefer to use products that are hand crafted by someone that knows what they are making not something that has been made 1000 at a time. With Crows Cross Roads Candles and Wax Melts, you get not just a set of special made manifesting candles but products that been made in small good batches which, if you follow Silver Raven’s news feed, can watch them being made step by step. I ordered some candle and wax melts, to aid in my creativity and also to bring in some abundance. Within a few days looking at my news feed, I saw her posting pictures of her mixing herbs, and pouring my candles, along with other orders. It was the process, step by step, showing me not only what was going into ...

    My Review of the Book: Perspective - It’s all about replacing one thought with another. Recently I had the opportunity to read this little gem by award winning bestselling author Annette Rochelle Aben. Annette is a friend of mine and an editor here at The Magic Happens so I know her fairly well and I believe I can safely say that her intention for her book was to spread joy and show how easy it is to replace one thought with another. I love many things about this book. It has beautiful coloured photographs, and it is very easy to read. In fact it is so easy to read, it is a book I would feel very comfortable recommending to someone who doesn’t like to read. Even the slowest reader can get through Annette’s book in a day. This is a clever little book full of angels and poetry and it definitely encourages the reader to choose their thoughts more carefully. For example: "I told the angels, I’d let go It was all right… I didn’t need ...

    It's spooky by David Wood Review - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Feb 1, 2016

    David Wood is a mainstream recording artist based in Columbus, Ohio. His music has been described by local media as the POP/Dance Alternative with a dash of Soul. . The music of David Wood often hits home with his blend of upbeat POP music and ballads. His latest song, 'It’s Spooky', touches on a deeper subject than the normal 'love and fun' connection that many other mainstream music stations seem to dump into our car radios. I feel it goes deeper into understanding how some relationships tend to leave battle scars which future relationships have to work past. In an interview in late October Mr. Wood shared that the song was about an abusive relationship that he had with a music manger early in his career and how it left scars that other relationships would have to work past. Abuse in itself and in any form leaves that terror in your heart. Even basic smells or just sounds will bring one back to the same position or fear and terror. This song ...

    Flying Colors by Sarah Moore - by Annette

     WWII may look like the alphabet to some but to those of us who had parents or grandparents who served their country in the armed forces during the 1940’s, we recognize those 4 characters as standing for World War Two. As this was such a very long time ago, there are not many around who can provide a first-hand account of the experience and as luck would have it, we have the honor and privilege to meet one such individual in the book Flying Colors by Sarah Moore.  Victor “Vic” Tatelman is now 94 years old but at one time he was a soldier in the United States Army Air Corps. By way of his personal narrative, we step back into of one of the most historic times of the 20th century.  Sarah Moore’s labor of love has given birth to Flying Colors which immortalizes this mortal man in fine style. The tale is not always pretty, we read of the horrors of war and can only imagine what it must ...

    The Dolphin's Dance - 5-Step Journey into Conscious Awareness - by Annette

      You know that feeling you get when you casually exchange glances with someone and it is as though they are saying, “I understand”? Well this is the feeling you get when you read Emerging Voices Living On: A Journey Through Loss to Renewal by Laurel D Rund. Everything from the design concept to the content will touch your heart, speak to your soul and allow you to move through the processes of grief and healing at your own pace.  Created as a result of her own grieving/healing journey, Emerging Voices will not only offer you a variety of stimulus but at the same time it reminds you that you are not alone as Laurel has left her essence on every page. This book IS Art from the Heart, thank you Laurel D. Rund. The art is stunning, Laurel herself is the gifted artisan who created the visuals that even if this was all the book consisted of would be reason enough to make Emerging Voices your own.  As the art is ...

    SOUL original poetry by GiGi Jones The Writer - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Mar 2, 2015

    When a person puts their soul into food we can taste it.  When a person puts their soul into a song, it moves us.  When a person puts their soul into a work of art, we see it.  So is it any wonder that the first book published by GiGi Jones “The Writer” is as tasty a visual treat (breath taking photographs) as it is a moving experience, after all she titled it SOUL. The original poetry on the pages of this beautifully crafted book is meant to be savored, not rushed through by any means. Each offering presents the story of an experience the author has lived through, come through and grown through to become the woman of strength she is today. While you may not find yourself on every page, you will find the ones that touch you deeply and perhaps once touched you will realize that emotions are something that unites people from all walks of life, all socio-economic backgrounds, races, genders and faiths.  Emotions hold tremendous power over ...

    Jaspar's War by Cym Lowell - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There is a famous quote that says that women are much like tea bags because you don’t know how strong they are until they are in hot water.  I imagine this is what the heroine of the debut novel by Cym Lowell discovered as she endured Jaspar’s War. While there are as many sub plots in this thriller it begins with one strong scenario: a pampered socialite, married to the United States Secretary of the Treasury, has her life turned upside down when she finds out her husband’s government jet has crashed, her children have vanished and that she has been tagged as the key player in the whole drama. As the sub plots unfold, Jaspar’s journey to rescue her children takes so many seemingly strange twists and turns that putting this whole thing together appears as intricately connected as a three tier, 3D jigsaw puzzle. Not that this is a bad thing, it’s actually part of the charm of a story that is anything other than charming. Jaspar Moran finds herself ...

    Choose – The Book – By Kat

    Posted by Kathleen McCarthy on Feb 1, 2015

    True to her form, my friend, award winning, bestselling author Annette Rochelle Aben has created another clever little powerhouse of a book. Choose, The Two Step Plan is an excellent book of positive reinforcement that is in large print so it is easy to read. It is also very clear in its objective of offering a more powerful and successful way of looking and experiencing live. Its ease of understanding is so complete, even children understand the book and what it is offering. Choose would be an outstanding choice for someone who is relearning how to think for general success in life. Each part begins with powerful choices followed by strong but simple and effective action steps. I would absolutely recommend this as a gift to someone who is in the midst of crucial life changes or who are new to this life philosophy.

    i-Comfortable Victim a novel based on true events - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    Through the art of story-telling, Attorney, Author, Founder, Motivational Speaker, Advocate Against Abuse, Victoria E. Broussard, Esq. presents i-Comfortable Victim, a novel based on true events. What you need to know right from the start is that this is based on the author’s personal experiences and as such provides the ability for the reader to relate to the fictional character of Saxxine De La Croix on a heart level. Yes the true events that inspired the book are repeated childhood sexually abuse however this book does more than simply take us through that journey by allowing us to see beneath the façade of the “victim” once they have become an adult.  Saxxine De La Croix does become a very successful adult and to the outside world everything appears to be business as usual but when Saxxine had to face the world behind the façade herself, the journey within the journey begins.  This book will not only take you on a journey of a woman’s life but it will take YOU on ...

    Lord Have Murphy, Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Sep 1, 2015

    Lord Have Murphy, what a title for a book. Yet if that doesn’t make you crack a smile, the book by the same name may just do the trick!  Fran Shaw Ph.D. gives the irreverently blunt outlook of Murphy, voice in this tour-de-force.  Truth be known, much of what Murphy shares is merely what is inside the heads of many who are Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. As we find out, when we hop on this freight train of entertainment; “attention is the teacher.” Murphy serves up food for spiritual thought not because we don’t know it, moreover so we can find others out there who are experiencing the same type of “mass instruction” over load.  Everywhere we tturn, there is someone espousing this formula or that edict. We may find ourselves trying too hard to make it all fit into our lives.  This can be more stress-filled than that which we strive to eliminate from our day-to-day. Stress + stress doesn’t not = enlightenment.  Murphy brings this to our ...

    David Wood‘s Crown and Conjure, Oil and Pump Spray - by Aeson

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Dec 1, 2015

    When I purchased some crown and conjure oils, I found them to be very pleasant and heavily scented, without that under laying scent you get with some oil blends. The oil you can tell has quality, it is thick and smooth to the touch. For those who used blended oils back in the early 80’s, these oils will remind you of them, before the oils when into mass production, as your oil is not blended until you order them. You can tell that they are freshly made and have not been setting on a shelf for God knows how long. Now I am very impressed when it comes to packaging. When I got the oil I ordered, it came packaged, in not one padded envelope but two, and each bottle was individually wrapped. The oil comes in glass bottles, not cheap plastic. Plus even through all the packaging, you could smell the scent of the oil. While I understand that for many,  the idea of the word conjuring could throw you off but ...
