We've lost these roles in mainstream Western society, thinking we don't need such nonsense anymore. But for those of us who yearn for more than we've encountered in mainstream life, who love the idea of magic and a deeper purpose, who feel they're on this planet to do something important even if -- especially if -- they don't know what it is, well, this book is for them. If that's you, you're part of 'The Team', as Beck calls it. The rest of the book focuses on learning the 'Technologies of Magic', or the four key skills one needs to practice to be most effective in fulfilling this purpose.
They are:. We'll admit it: when we first read this book, we gave up in frustration. We just couldn't seem to get it and we wondered if we were being sold New Age snake oil.
We began practicing meditation 10 minutes every day via the Headspace app , and Wordlessness became doable. Malcolm made sure to go outside as that's where he feels Oneness, and Rachel practiced it by listening to the owls hooting in the woods outside the window. Imagining something we wanted, visualising it, became a future to look forward to. As for Forming, well we're still learning how to Form. That's what you might call the proof in the pudding, since it's only with Forming that you can see whether the other three tools worked.
It's what a lot of New Age books call 'manifesting', and we won't lie, it's a challenge.
Finding Your Way In A Wild New World
Rachel says, so far, she can only definitively point to a new cooker oven as a successful Forming. We know, not exactly something you'd think of as magical, but it sure saved our Christmas dinner when it arrived, half price and on Christmas Eve, after our old one mysteriously broke down. Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of this book is that it makes 21st century magic possible. One of the magic tricks you can do to prove to skeptics and yourself that this stuff really works is the 'Push-Together versus Hold-Apart'. You'll need to have Wordlessness and Oneness down to do it, so it may take some practice first.
Rachel loves doing this with anyone she talks to about this book when they start looking at her with pity for her deluded New Age ways. Honestly, you've got to try it. When you're the person whose hands are pushed together, you'll find yourself weirdly unable to resist If you're the person doing the pushing, the first effort feels grueling and difficult, the second ridiculously easy. Most people think the other party is faking weakness. At that point you and your partner are effectively One person.
Too often, they end up stuck in careers and relationships that don't fit. She identifies this growing body of people as wayfinders.
Drawing on her coaching expertise and her extraordinary experiences in the South African bush, Martha leads her readers through four magical and practical steps to awaken them to a new way of living in the 21st century.
