Reality Dreaming

Manifest Your Dreams into Reality with a
Real Magick Shamanism Apprenticeship

Opportunity is a funny thing… it sometimes comes when you least expect it, but it always seems to come at the right time. So why do we hesitate?

The problem is not so much a lack of opportunity, but more that most of us are so busy floating through life half-asleep that we miss the opportunities that do present themselves… What wasted gifts! Well consider this your wake up call..!

All of us, whether or not we are warriors, have a cubic centimeter of chance that pops out in front of our eyes from time to time. The difference between an average man and a warrior is that the warrior is aware of this, and one of his tasks is to be alert, deliberately waiting, so that when his cubic centimeter pops out he has the necessary speed, the prowess to pick it up.
– Don Juan Matus to Carlos Castenada, from Journey to Ixtlan

This could be your cubic centimeter of chance… a chance to have a chance…

What would you say to being able to make a real change in your life and the lives of those around you through the guided study and application of a practical and experiential path of knowledge? Forget all those fluffy sales-pitchy ebooks and wishy-washy scattered info you can find for free on the internet, forget the motivational speakers and the self-help pop psychology..!

Don’t get me wrong, all these things have their place, and there is some really interesting stuff out there that can really help, but let’s face it… most of these people are just offering you their brand of truth rather than helping you to find your own. And can pre-packaged truth really sit well with your soul?

The unfortunate thing is real quality teachers are hard to come by. In days gone by seekers of knowledge would travel far and wide to find a “master” or “guru” from which to learn.. it still happens these days, but not as much.. in these days where information is more freely available we are faced with another problem, we get so overloaded and distracted that we forget to focus on our own path.

Well, I’m going to present you with one possible path right now…

The opportunity to study magic and shamanism with an experienced teacher: Alan Joel. Alan has been a shamanic healer and practitioner for more than 20 years, and has been a mentor, teacher and guide to hundreds of students, helping them create lasting beneficial changes in their lives, families, careers and beliefs systems. He has studied in many faiths and traditions, and continues to create courses that offer students spiritual growth, self knowledge and much more.

Alan is currently offering a Shamanism Apprenticeship Class through the Esoteric School of Magic and Shamanism. If you’ve ever wanted to learn real magick this is your chance. This course is offered through a combination of home study material and weekly teleconference, making it available to you wherever you are! (And that means no having to travel hundreds of miles or halfway across the world just for an over-priced weekend seminar or retreat like in the good old days!)

You can read more about the Apprenticeship at the School site HERE

BUT, *don’t sign up there* for the Apprenticeship! Why? Because I’ve arranged an exclusive special discount offer for my subscribers (that means you!) which you can only get by submitting your application on the form at the end of this page.

PLUS as an added bonus I’m going to throw in a full copy of my Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection Course! Simply let me know once you’ve completed your registration and I’ll send you an access link to my course. Pretty sweet huh?

Apprenticeship Class Details

The first class starts on the Monday 9th of April and enrolment applications close this Saturday 7th of April, so act fast to secure your spot as there are limited positions available (so that the size of the class remains manageable.) Class will be held on Monday evenings at 5pm Pacific Time (PST) – so check your timezones..!

Payment for the class is by the month, try it out and see if it’s for you… and then continue your shamanic apprenticeship quest for a full 18 months! To give you an idea of the course structure here is how it looks (it’s recommended you plan to at least complete the Basic Magic module if you cannot commit to the full course at this time.)

Basic Magic – 32 weeks (8 months)
Tarot, Sonics, Spellwork – 8 weeks (2 months)
Basic Shamanism – 16 weeks (4 months)
Intermediate Shamanism – 16 weeks (4 months)

Normally this class costs $150 per month but if you sign up through the form on the bottom of this page it will be only $140 per month, an exclusive and substantial discount over the length of the course, and a sheer bargain for an apprenticeship of this nature and depth.

First month’s payment is due before the first class. After your payment has been received, you will be sent an email with instructions on how to access the teleconference center for class. Registration for this class is acknowledgement that you are 18 years of age or more and that you are agreeing to the Program Policies and Procedures.

A few years ago I had the experience of dreaming in Zen! For those unfamiliar with Zen stories, they are often short but insightful tales about experiences that have helped people realize the truth… (I recommend Zen Flesh Zen Bones by Alan Watts, a great collection of Zen stories.)

But I was fortunate enough to bring this one back from the dream world! I saw it from the eyes of the characters and third person simultaneously, but here is my attempt at a written version… Enjoy!

…A travelling zen monk was passing through a city one day, when he was approached by one of the locals seeking his help. There had been a number of deaths in the city by poisoning recently, and the man knew of the particular shopkeeper responsible for supplying it. He was, however, too afraid to approach the authorities for fear he might be next. The monk assured the man that he would look into it, asks directions to the shop and proceeds to it.

Upon entering the shop, he approaches the counter and politely says “I require one dose of your finest poison thankyou.” The shopkeeper is visibly surprised at such a request from a monk, but is not in the business of asking questions, and after all, this could be a disguised assassin who it would not be wise to refuse. He recovers his composure, bends down under the counter and shortly produces a small vial for examination.

The monk studies the vial, and satisfactorily pronounces, “Yes, that should suffice for everyone.” The shopkeeper is again taken aback, and says quite seriously, “Sir, I do not think you understand. As you asked, this dose is for one person. It is not sufficient for more.” The monk smiles and replies, “No, it will certainly suffice. For you see, I intend to take this myself tonight… and tomorrow, everyone else will be dead.”

At which, the shopkeeper is enlightened, and never sells poison again…

Today I need to ask you an VERY important question…

What do *you* do when something in your life isn’t going the way you want?

Do you get frustrated, disappointed, upset, complain, and otherwise waste your energy in futile arguments with yourself as to why it “shouldn’t be this way”?

Or do you consistently persevere with your intentions and continue to put your energy into finding solutions and follow through – without needing to indulge in negative emotional reactions to a situation?

WAIT, before you answer… let’s reframe the entire situation… if it were a dream, or even a nightmare, and yet you *knew* you had the power to change it instantly, would that change your answer? Wouldn’t you just change it to what you DO want?

Now, there is a lucid dreaming technique called “spinning a new dream” where you simply start spinning, and while doing so imagine the experience you want to have, and when you stop spinning – there it is! Awesome. Very handy…

*** Now I bet that’s a skill we’d all like to have in waking life! ***

But hang on… it’s been said that “all life is a dream” (or an illusion if you prefer) anyway, so what’s the difference? Why *can’t* we do this in our waking life? Is it really that the “solidity” of physical reality is so convincing when quantum physics has that all “matter” is just energy vibrating at different frequencies? Or is there something else going on here..?

To me the real difference is when we are lucid, when we *know* we are dreaming, we *remember* that we have the power to change it. But when we are are awake, we can simply *forget* that we have the power to create our reality as we choose.

Now I’m not saying it will be an instant change, but what I am suggesting is that according to the degree of our own personal power (or our “connecting link with intent”) we far more easily remember that we *can* change reality and instead of wasting our energy doubting that, we put the same energy into just *doing it.*

To that end, shamans throughout history have devised practices that though diverse in form, could be said to have one thing is common – they all build our personal power, and thus increase our ability to remember – to *know* – that what we create in our life is within our choosing.

So if this is something you’re interested in, it might be time to consider taking up some form of practice like this… Of course there’s many different spiritual practices out there that may do this in various ways, however if you want a guided class with an experienced teacher that will help you develop your abilities
in this and a multitude of other related areas you should really check this out:

If you feel it’s a time in your life where you want to be able to make a real and lasting change in the way you create you life, it could be just the ticket…

There is a major difference between normal dreams and lucid ones. Normal dreams are usually something that ‘happens to you’ while lucid dreams are dreams that you are making happen. It is really a direct parallel to waking life. Is waking life ‘something that happens to you while you’re making other plans’? Or are you choosing to be aware of the choices you’re making to create that life how you choose?

Lucid dreams aren’t just for fun or entertainment (even though they’re some of the most fun you’ll even have!) They have many practical applications, and they are also a tool for increasing your spiritual awareness in day to day life. The sense of freedom and self-empowerment you experience through lucid dreaming carries over into waking life, where you find yourself making conscious decisions with greater confidence and clarity.

Becoming lucid is not just a skill or a hobby. It can be a path of awareness too, a path that is available to all people regardless of any other beliefs they may hold; scientific, religious or otherwise. Because everyone dreams! Dreams are a common reference point between all people, and thus lucid dreaming is an accessible practice that can truly help anyone improve or enjoy their life.

Or should I say lives..? We have both a waking and a dreaming life, but how aware are we being in either? Most of us don’t even remember much of our dreaming lifeā€¦ and when we think about it, our memory of waking life often isn’t up to scratch either. When we don’t remember something, it’s like it didn’t happen at all! What is a waste of our awareness. The choice is clear. GET LUCID!
