Overview

Finding True Magic blends insights and techniques from Eastern & Western psychology, philosophy, and spiritual practices to create ways to rapidly heal emotional and physical, and mental problems and to motivate and inspire to create joy and success.
This book explores the possibilities for recognizing and freeing ourselves from a destructive process of perceiving, thinking, and acting that can be viewed as a pernicious worldwide epidemic. Unlike other diseases, which we strive to isolate and cure, this insidious fever has a characteristic that makes us blind to its presence: we come to identify its symptoms as our very own true self. We lovingly speak of this disease as our ego, our sense of limited separate selfhood. Jack Elias calls it "egoic-minding," because it is a process, not a thing. Egoic-minding is a fragmented, biased way of perceiving and thinking. It can be viewed as a sort of destructive hypnotic trance that causes us to experience each other as strangers, as different, as threats. The delirium of this trance causes us to do violence to each other and to our world, without ever recognizing that it (our egoic thought process) is the true enemy. By synthesizing insights and techniques of Eastern and Western philosophy and psychology, Finding True Magic explores various ways to disperse the feverish trance of egoic-minding, heal the trauma it causes, and wake us up to the sacred magic of our true Self. This true inner Self is the wellspring of our capacity for cooperation, community-building, and the celebration of life. Everyone has the right to the make use of the essential insights and dynamics of healing communication, without resorting to the long-term expense of a professional intermediary. The model of such therapeutic relationships has changed in recent years, due to the financial burdens it places on our medical system. Financial considerations aside, however, therapy and therapists should change simply because there is a more effective approach to healing and personal growth. That approach, which is the subject of this book, relies on the inherent goodness of our shared Being, a resource that is surprisingly easy to contact when you have the right means.

This uncommonly wise book raises the idea of therapy to new levels of application and consideration, teaching effective therapeutic artistry.

Aside from being an excellent therapist and teacher, Jack Elias is one of this world's true magicians, and you should be honored and humbled to have an opportunity to learn from him. The book is compelling, dynamic, fun to read and easy to work with. It's also chock-full of wisdom, like Saint Sophia Saint Sophia Saves the World (The Saint Sophia Chronicles). Whether you are a counselor, a hypnotherapist, or some other helping type of human, you'll find worthy guidance here. I highly recommend th

I have just completed this book and the entire certification course in Finding True Magic. I have found it one of the most inspirational and enlightened learning processes, if not the most, in my life to date. As a hypnotherapist with a strong interest in the spiritual aspect of life and the combination of both, it was important that I find a course that could offer me in-depth learnings in spiritual philosophy coupled with sound common sense and practical application of psychotherapeutic practi

'Finding True Magic' has impressed me as the result of the experience and insight of a master of technique who besides very deep insight has great sensitivity and compassion and is an excellent teacher. It also has been, in my experience, astonishingly powerful practically (I mean in terms of applying to specific situations with surprising effect).

One of the situations had to do with pain that was so severe it had become seriously disruptive to my ability to apply ideas or techniques t
