2014's Magickal Magnificent Manifestations!

Author: Rev. WD Allan

Sometimes we tend to lose our perspective of the fact that no matter where we started from or where and/or to which paths we find ourselves stumbling along on our way that we eventually find that in some miraculous ways we have reached our fabled respective destinations despite life’s continuous daily emotional foolishness!

Somehow as we continued to travel our ways forward searching for that “perfect” path, we instinctively always did know in our hearts what was really meant for us in the first place!

As we made our way forward day by day, we continued to find ourselves getting ever closer and even closer still to that brilliant emerging life that we always dreamed of, the substance of which we never did really grasp in the first place. This was that one grand goal that we always cherished and that we kept safely hidden away deep inside our hearts as we moved our ways along! That is if we continued to make the arduous decision to keep on traveling along and not to give up on ourselves!

Indeed, one of those veiled magickal mysteries of life that always tweaked my fascination was the many ways that we at various times along our path found ourselves continuing the search for our innate sense of a true understanding of ourselves in that presence we all called the enjoyment of “life” in our own way!

We all tend to expend so much energy on this subject, don’t we?

We expend volumes of cash on trying to make ourselves happy! We all expend exhausting amounts of energy trying to build and in many cases, to force the presence of intimate relationships that we believe will make us happy in our lives, only to be disappointed again and again! We seek geographic enhancements of our existence as a way of augmenting our worldly perceptions of life and of ourselves. We even continue to seek greater amounts of money and possessions thinking that the more we have and the more that we hold and have banked will help to make us truly happy in life!

As we all greet the entrance of the New Year of 2014, I sense a coming shift in the manifested benefits and virtues that we will all experience in the coming time! This especially so for those who dare to swing open wide the doorways of their own self-awareness!

So, as many will choose to spend inordinate amounts of time seeking more creative ways to squash into subversion the open paths that are available to them, we also have the choice benefit of enhancing our perceptions and to augment our beliefs about those ways of living that haven’t worked well for us in the past and to choose new paths forward now!

When we really take some time to think about it, it does lay an interesting thoughtful egg on our doorstep, doesn’t it?

It’s in the nature of our spirits to continue to seek for grander answers to even grander questions of life, whether or not we’re centering these questions based in a philosophy of living, of the human psychology of stunting our paths, throughout the mathematics that make up our continuing crisis modalities of life versus a continuing brilliance of life, or nested in the universal truths we obtain in the realms of our spiritual beliefs!

Where the content in emotion in our belief in ourselves resides however is a little bit more elementary to the fabric of our soul and, as a result, when the matter of the source of life, of Mother Earth and of the Gods is concerned, as we meander our ways into the first days of the New Year, remember that as the sage once said: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!”

In the past year, I was personally blessed and highly honored with one of these first steps on my way into a new chapter in my life! This was the grace of the bestowal of my Ordination as a Reverend into the Ministry of a magnificent church of ancient faith led by the lovely Rev. and HP Lori Bruno based from Salem Massachusetts!

It was an event that humbled me beyond any other honor I have ever received up till now in my life up to and including my Black Belts, my many Degree’s, or any other event that has had the capacity to augment my personal meaning of my life.

To me this event was different in more than just personal ways. It was different in very construct and effective ways because not only did this allow me to take pride in my own achievements in my life, it also now propelled me onto paths of helping people far and wide in ways that I just couldn’t have previously! It brought up a new sense of energized purpose at a time when I circumstantially began to think that in many ways, my useful and my purposeful days just might be starting to wane in their significance!

I recall a statement I heard on an episode of one of my Mom’s favorite television shows, Frasier, where Martin (played by John Mahoney) says, “just when you think life has no more surprises in store for you, wham, it shows up!” One of the things about the path of life that we can either accept or deny as we wish is the reality that we always have opportunities available to us. The Magickal fact is that, every now and then, some of these opportunities may be crafted “JUST FOR US FOR A VERY GOOD REASON!”

As your New Year emerges and as you begin to seek out better ways of living, brighter avenues of traveling and as more brilliant opportunities appear in front of you that you can draw into your experience of life, don’t forget to grab on! It’s usually a requirement that we must reach out and accept them into our lives!

Sometimes as we suddenly feel the universe aligning -- if even in a momentary way -- we must grasp at this opportunity and make it a valued part of our lives because, just as quickly as it appears before us, it will also move along out of our grasp again! This is the nature of the Magick of manifestation in life!

This is also the fabric in the colorful textures of the tapestry that we continue to weave in our lives! The thing we eventually must come to ask ourselves is will we allow these colors to be blended with only what seems to come along day by day, or will we allow ourselves to reach out and accept those shining opportunities that make themselves known and available to us?

Whether we admit it or not, sometimes we tend to fall into self-described agreements with ourselves about what we think we deserve in our lives versus what we have the chance to make a part of our lives, thus lighting the candles of a new magnificence for ourselves! You see, sometimes we think we aren’t worthy of many of these things for lofty, toxic and minimalist value-based and intimate emotional reasons known only to ourselves. Sometimes we think that we can’t reach high enough, or far enough, or that we just don’t have the ability and the capacity to make ourselves as shining or a brilliant as some others we see in the world!

The reality is that life and the paths that we choose are as much a matter of our beliefs in ourselves, and of our own choices, as they are of the Gods making these opportunities available to us! We must believe in ourselves enough to be able to take the chance that we are worth it, that we are worth succeeding, and that we can be all that we always envisioned for ourselves!

Believe in yourself enough to reach out for the stars that shine in your imagination! Because when you dare to believe, so will you achieve! Take that chance in 2014 to manifest the life for yourselves that you always dreamed of, because guess what…?


There is something out there that believes in you! Isn’t it time you do as well?

Have a fantastic New Year!

As always,

WD Allan
