Magic

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Books

As far back as I can remember, I've loved magicians…

They make the impossible become possible. They remind us of the mysteries inherent in the Universe.

More importantly, they remind us of the mysteries and potential within ourselves.

The thing is…

We all "know" that magicians aren't actually doing the impossible.

As World Champion Jason Latimer shared when I saw him – magicians just have more knowledge about reality than we do. They know more about physics than we do. That makes what they do SEEM impossible.

He was especially known for being able to shape water… to literally shape it into balls, to throw it, to move it, and more. What he does is wonderful to watch (especially in person!).

In that spirit, my son and I love to watch magic shows on TV whenever we can. Whether it's Penn & Teller's "Fool Us," or people competing on America's Got Talent (with a recent congrats to Shin Lim who is only the 2nd magician ever to win AGT. The other is Mat Franco).

We always try to figure out how they do the trick. We'll even sometimes watch it in slow-motion.

We've even gone as far as to watch shows like "The World's Greatest Magic Tricks – REVEALED."

We learn the secrets behind magicians and how they're able to do what seems impossible.

Here's the real trick though…

When, no matter how hard we study, we can't figure out a trick.

We know it's a trick. We know it's possible. We just don't know the hidden forces of reality that make the impossible seem possible.

The same is true of our relationships.

There is magic. There are hidden forces.

And they either make our relationships…

Or they break them.

I spent most of my life in broken relationships. Being hurt. Hurting others. Not knowing why I couldn't get it together.

Great relationships seemed like MAGIC to me.

So just like those magic shows, I studied. I learned from all kinds of amazing resources – from spiritual & energetics teachers, to mainstream and even underground materials.

That's because I wanted to understand the hidden forces that either worked for, or against, my best efforts at an amazing relationship.

And though I'm not currently in an intimate relationship (open to one though!), I can say that the last few women I've dated have been AMAZING women. The difference between the broken relationships I used to have, and the higher-purpose inspiring women I've dated in the last few years, is night-and-day.

I've even attended the weddings of two of those women – who though we weren't quite the right fit romantically – after dating we stayed truly good friends (like the kind I can call up at 3am and they'll literally drop everything to help me… and their husbands would too).

The good news for you is that you don't have to study nearly as many different resources as I did so that you can turn any of your challenging relationships into beautiful works of magic.

Is that TODAY a brand new book is being released, and it teaches us the magic "tricks" to having great relationships.

It's called "Relationship Magic" and it's from Guy Finley who has been one of my favorite spiritual teachers for over a decade. I've studied with him in person as well as virtually through his audio programs and books.

Now I say "tricks" but really they're not tricks at all. It's just that Guy has looked at the hidden forces of reality that sabotage our relationships, he's found the "magic," and now he's sharing his best relationsihp wisdom with us.

Because of my close relationship with his organization for the last decade, they hooked me up with an advance audiobook copy and I've been listening to it.

It's good. It's worth it. And if you have ANY relationships (friends, family, intimate) that you would like to improve, then Relationship Magic will help you do it.

I appreciate that Guy tackles some important relationship questions, and more importantly, answers them in very real, practical, down-to-earth terms.

(It's kind of like privately chatting with a best friend who knows ALL the secrets!)

For example…

  • Why do we seem powerless to stop hurting those we love… when punishing them is the last thing we want to do?
     
  • How do we help those we love outgrow what we know is holding them, and our relationship back?
     
  • What must we learn about ourselves before we're able to love anyone else – including ourselves – unconditionally?

As I mentioned, I've studied Guy's work for over a decade. I take "road trips" with his audio programs playing. I've been to his Life of Learning Foundation and studied with him in-person.

And even though his book is about creating magic in our relationships, make no mistake about it, he's the real-deal. 100% legit true spiritual wisdom delivered in a very grounded, practical, and common-sense book.

I highly recommend you get "Relationship Magic" today.

Your friends, family, colleagues, coworkers, intimate partners, and your future self will thank you for it. 🙂

Your Quality Of Life Is Determined By _______

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Product Recommendations

According to one of my favorite spiritual teachers, Guy Finley, our quality of life is determined by exactly one thing:

The level of our consciousness.

Which also means that when we learn to raise our consciousness, we improve the quality of all aspects of our lives.

While this may seem to simple to be true, I've witnessed it to be true in my own life. It's the most precious gift I have, in fact… because it is infused with everything I do.

(Including writing to you).

A few years ago I went to Guy Finley's non-profit "Life of Learning Foundation" in Merlin Oregon and spent a few days there. This was after having already read a few of his books and listened to several of his audios (which I truly LOVE).

During that time, I really enjoyed getting to know the people who support bringing Guy's work to the world – especially Eric and Tim. We spent time chatting over meals and in the hallways.

Getting to know them was a gift – digging into spiritual Truths, and also listening in person to Guy's teachings. I spent some time out in nature while there, and I thoroughly enjoyed communing with all the spiritual seekers who come together to study with him.

It's been a while since I've visited, and I plan to head up there sometime in the next few months.

A while back, Eric sent me a message saying that he, Tim, and Guy had come up with something I might want to share with you. Given that everything Guy produces is truly excellent, I had no hesitations.

Granted, I get approached all the time to share peoples' books, programs, and videos. Almost every time, I say "no." Most people and their programs just aren't up to the quality I require for me to even *consider* sharing something with you.

And if I do decide to *consider* sharing it with you, then the potential partner usually goes through weeks or -months- of me evaluting their programs, the emails they send to their readers, test their systems and websites, getting to know the partner, and YES… I even do reference checks on them to make sure that other people, who I know and trust, also endorse the person whose work I am *considering* sharing with you.

As I'm sure you can imagine, most people –even well intentioned people with good hearts– never get past "Hi my name is…"

Of course, Guy and his team are WELL past those hurdles. His work is awesome, and I listen to his audios when I go on road trips.

Well, Guy's team has written a letter sharing more about how our level of consciousness affects the quality of our lives.

They also share what kind of insights, benefits, and new understandings you can reasonably expect to experience in your life after listening to Guy's newest program "To Touch The Timeless Mind: Make the Million-Year Leap in Human Consciousness" and putting it into practice.

Click Here And Read The Letter

What makes this offer unique – aside from the very empowering content – is that Guy Finley has priced it ridiculously low.

(You won't believe your eyes. Seriously.)

And between my personal experiences with just *loving* Guy's programs and books for several years…

And getting to know Guy and his team personally…

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to share this opportunity with you.

92 out of 100 people fail at this… and they don’t know why :(

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Product Recommendations

It's a startling fact… and at first glance it seems to leave us with little hope:

According to statistics, 92 out of every 100 people who attempt to break a bad habit are destined to fail.

Only a mere 8% ever find a way to break free of their self-imposed prison.

According to one of my spiritual teachers, Guy Finley, there's a surefire way to shatter any addiction, break any bad habit…

Using a little-known but extremely powerful understanding. And he says that it makes no difference at all what habit you're trying to break.

Whether it's alcohol, smoking, drugs, gambling, overeating, harmful relationship patterns, overindulgence in sex, incessant anxiety, impulsive spending, insatiable ambition, fear of failure, chronic clutter, procrastination, literally anything at all.

Because no matter what condition you're facing, Guy says that there is one unthinkable solution that cannot fail if it is properly understood and diligently applied.

(of course as we all know, there is a difference between knowing an insight and applying it… therein lies the truth in all secrets of personal change)

Guy shares these insights in his very (VERY) low-priced program "Breaking Dependency: Learning to Let Go and Be Free From the Inside Out." Within it are some of the most revolutionary insights into addictions and bad habits you will ever discover.

Click the link below to learn more about his program:

CONTINUED: How to Shatter Any Addiction, Break Any Bad Habit >>

I'm going to give this program another listen. I already have it, and as with all of Guy's programs that I have (which is about half a dozen), I listen to them over and over… usually every few months. And especially on road trips — including when I visit his Life of Learning Foundation and spend time with him and his team in person.

AND, be sure to read the comic on that page…

I certainly recognized myself in it…

As well as my friend Tim who posed for all those photos. 🙂

Are You Sick And Tired Of “Tolerating” People?

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

FrustratedA couple of weeks ago, I shared with you Guy Finley's story "The Devil's Plan for Destruction" and some of my initial thoughts on that story about "tolerance."

If you haven't yet read that, click here and read it first so that the rest of this conversation makes sense.
    
In a nutshell, I wrote that "tolerance" is a form of hypocrisy where we are nice to people we really don't want to be nice to. We're nice and "tolerate" the person because we are scared what will happen if we don't "tolerate" the person.
    
Specifically, I wrote:

"We continue to be hypocrites because the Inner Critic's expectation of discomfort of conflict and disruption is greater than the authentic inner drive to align our conscious and subconscious minds with our actions."

Many people responded disagreeing with what I wrote. People feared losing their jobs if they didn't "tolerate" their bosses. People fear losing loved ones if they don't "put up with" the aspects of people they don't like.

In other words, tolerance is viewed as a "necessary evil" if we are to survive in the world. It wasn't until I wrote "necessary evil" that I realized how perfectly titled Guy Finley's story is…

"The Devil's Plan for Destruction"

Tolerance IS destructive, both inwardly towards ourselves and outwardly towards the world. It creates a facade in which authenticity is lost, and personal power is replaced with fear of change and feelings of insecurity.

That said, it's important to realize that there are two ways to look at resolving the hypocrisy. One way is to take actions that are authentic expressions of how you already feel. For example:

  • If you feel angry, you respond with aggression and harshness…
  • If you feel you've been judged unfairly or been mistreated, you stand up for yourself…
  • If you feel unimportant, you tell people how hurt you feel…

In those examples, "taking action" is one way to no longer be a hypocrite. That may work sometimes, and it may be the appropriate course of action in some circumstances. Your outer expression is an accurate reflection of your inner experience. That approach will bring your thoughts, feelings, and actions into integrity.

Though if you're feeling so rageful that you really want to kill somebody, acting on that would quickly cause irreversible harm to many people and land you in prison.

(or the electric chair if you live in Texas)
 
So in extreme case, resolving hypocrisy issues through action could potentially lead to very negative and undesireable consequences… more undesireable than the discomfort or pain we feel while staying in the hypocritical state of silently wishing ill-will towards others while outwardly acting kindly.

That's why the Inner Critic does not want you to resolve hypocrisy and inner conflicts. The more conflict the Inner Critic can create within you, the more easily it can keep you controlled within the boundaries of fear. The Inner Critic has very specific ideas about the "worst case scenario" that will unfold when you take actions to bring your feelings and inner world into integrity with your outer world.

Therefore, I recommend before you take action in the outer world to resolve your feelings of "tolerance" and the associated inner hypocrisy, explore another option:

Do "real inner work."
 
This is equally as fearful to the Inner Critic whose goal is to keep you small, safe, and surviving (in whatever form it thinks is best for you). See, the real issue around tolerance is the hypocrisy: Or put another way, the INNER experience we have which causes us to feel one way and then act another.

Tolerance by nature lacks compassion and authentic kindness.

Tolerance covers over our hearts with coldness, and it's that coldness which causes us to act without integrity ~ that causes us to act one way while feeling another. That coldness is experienced as an insensitivity we have to the world around us, and to our experience in the world.

That is a real conflict within that we have at a deep and primal level.

And our Inner Critic is terribly frightened that ~ if we stop tolerating people ~ we will have to come face to face with that conflict.
 
Why?

Because if we do real inner work, what happens is that our coldness, our distance, our anger and frustration, get transformed into personal empowerment. We learn how to be truly present in the moment and to accept people as they are.

When that happens, miracles happen.

That's because our inner coldness is transformed into, dare I say it, a form of love. More specifically, compassion as a form of love.

We begin to understand how much pain, difficulty, and harshness other people live with. We begin to understand why we "used to" have so much difficulty "tolerating" people.

And because of our transformed state — because we've done the inner work — we can't help but love them and hold space for their wellness, even if they are acting in ways that are not in alignment with our values or what we consider to be "higher" values.

By shifting away from 'tolerance' and transforming that inner conflict into kindness and love, we can then act in integrity. We can smile and hug those who used to 'annoy' us the most. We can forgive those who hurt us… even before they hurt us (so to speak). We can work for the bosses who criticize our work.

And that's all possible because we develop a kind of unconditional love for others, we recognize the difficulties we all face as humans, and we realize that sometimes a smile and a kind word are all it takes to transform a negative experience into a heartful one.

Now to circle back…

I'm not advocating that just because we do inner work and resolve our "tolerance" hypocrisy that we'll stay in negative, destructive, or hurtful situations.

But instead of reacting negatively, we will have the inner peace of heart and mind, and the personal power, to more fully explore which aspects of our life must fall away.

We can see which relationships are fulfilling and need to be deepened. We then know intuitively when to engage more fully with an experience. And we know when to disengage from something (such as a negative person or situation).

After transforming our inner tolerance / hypocrisy / conflict, it may be appropriate to give people their distance when they judge harshly, while other times it may be appropriate to engage and speak our voice.

It may be appropriate to quit our job, or alternatively it may be right to talk with the HR department about how our manager is mistreating us.

We can act in all of those ways with compassion and kindness in our hearts.

AND…

Because those kinds of outcomes are possible as a result of doing real inner work to resolve conflicts and discomfort within yourself, the Inner Critic has intense fear and tries to keep you from doing real inner work.

But if we react purely out of our past conditioning (which includes tolerance), then we'll never know the truly best outcome for a situation. We'll continue to be driven by Inner Critic thoughts of how we "should" be to try and avoid what we fear is the worst-case outcome of taking action to resolve conflicts.

Tolerance doesn't give us the power to take real, purposeful, personally powerful action. Tolerance disempowers us because our actions are not in alignment with our values and inner Truths. THAT is the real conflict. That's the "inside job" that has to be worked on if we are to ever have the peace of mind to live in a world which is constantly hurling conflict after conflict at us.

When you do "real inner work," I can't promise that the negative situations in your life will get resolved the way you ideally think they "should." What I can promise though, is that your inner world will transform in such fundamentally amazing and powerful ways that you'll be more capable of moving forward in the world with the necessary strength, courage, and willpower to resolve the inner conflicts that arise no matter what outer experiences you may be having.

And now you know why my program is called "Liberate Your Life."

Because your life — your inner life — is the one you have to live with until the day you die.

You can't liberate the world…

You can't liberate your annoying boss…

You can't liberate your disrespectful family members…

And you can't even liberate your significant others when they "just don't get it."

But you can Liberate Your Life because your life — your inner life — is the one thing you can develop total control over how you experience.

(one of the people in this Spring’s series)

Did you know that upon hearing of his work, Oprah Winfrey called Gary unsolicited and asked if he’d be on the show. You know what he said?

“Oprah who? No thanks.”

He had never heard of Oprah. She wouldn’t take no for an answer, so she kept calling until eventually he accepted.

The Secret to Being Unstoppable – Free Guy Finley Audios

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Free Spiritual Gifts

Guy Finley - The Secrets of Being Unstoppable

I’ve been a huge fan of Guy Finley’s work for a couple of years now, and so finally a few months ago, I went down to his Life of Learning Foundation spiritual school. I met with his students, team, and also met Guy. While there, I felt a great sense of joy, harmony, and abundance of presence and authenticity… and I wanted to share it with others.

So I asked some of Guy’s team if they’d be willing to work with me, personally, to GIVE you some of his exclusive "Secrets of Being Unstoppable" album. The two audio clips (about 15 mins each) below have been hand-selected by me because I really enjoy them greatly, and I believe you will too.

==> Click here to listen to both excerpts

The first one shares a few spiritual stories and some key lessons. By now it’s no mystery I love to read, write, and share spiritual stories, so today you get to listen to 3 of my favorites from Guy. 🙂 In the second audio clip, Guy shares about what SUCCESS really is, and what we can do to achieve it.

It is my personal opinion that these clips, alone, are well worth the cost of Guy’s entire "Secrets of Being Unstoppable" program. Just so you have a point of reference, the clips I picked out are about 30 minutes (a half CD), and the full "Unstoppable" program is 16 CDs (so about 32 times more content than what I’m sharing with you).

I hope you enjoy these clips, as much as I have!
