Look deeper into the Mystery
One of the real secrets to living a magical life is seeing just a bit deeper into the mysterious things in life—the things that most people gloss over and never notice.
Did you know that…
* Your eyes are capable of processing 36,000 pieces of information per hour.
* Your eyes will process 24 million images in your lifetime: Overall, they contribute nearly 85 percent of your knowledge. Simply put, they’re responsible for setting up how we react to the environments in which we live.
* One eye consists of more than two million working parts. Incredibly complex, your eye, as previously mentioned, is a highly productive and resilient organ that can adjust to different conditions and overcome a number of disturbances.
* Your eyes can recognize candle light from up to 14 miles away: Of course, this can only be done under perfect conditions, but it’s impressive nonetheless. Your eyes are the strongest muscles in your body relative to their duties, and they function at 100 percent capacity. Capabilities such as this one prove they’re one of the most powerful tools possessed by humans…

Not all facts we see are USEFUL facts! But it is worth looking closely at things that ARE meaningful to us… so let’s take a deeper look at 3 things today.
Words have more power than we think! Did you know that the word “ABRACADABRA” has a deeper meaning?
It does, and it is a secret that can change what you think and say! Our words have a powerful effect on our reality… more than you can even imagine!
What does the word “Abracadabra” Mean?
Magicians use it all the time. So does Hollywood! But does it really have a meaning? Yes!
The word ”Abracadabra” comes from an Aramaic phrase meaning “I create as I speak.” In the Hebrew language, the phrase translates more accurately as “it came to pass as it was spoken.”
What are you creating with your words… for example, if your thoughts and words are old thoughts or “last year’s” words, you will repeat another year of not getting what you desire!
The Amazing World of Female Magicians
Let’s take a closer look at the world of magic. People often are surprised that there are many great female magicians! Click and look at this list and see how many YOU know!
Did you know that we have MANY female magicians that are part of our Mystery School Team? Here are just a few:
Abigail McBride – Executive Administrator
Katherine Rettke – Executive Assistant
Simone Marron – Social Coordinator
Marjorie Hass – Faculty Consultant & Teacher
Sheryl Garrett – Official Photographer
Jenny Hearn, Betty Riley – Costumers
Melanie Kramer – Stage Assistant/Choreographer
Did you know that Jeff McBride’s FIRST magic teacher was a woman?
Yes! My first exposure was my “Aunt Joanna.” Joanna Rawson married my “Uncle Craig Hammond.”
Joanna’s father was Clayton Rawson the mystery writer. He was also known as The Great Merlini and was founder of “The Witch Doctors Club.” Joanna showed me my first magic trick when I was 7 years old. I was crying because I did not want to go to sleep. Joanna showed me an amazing magic trick to try to stop me from crying—and it worked. Joanna wiggled her fingers and plucked off her thumb! I was amazed. I was so amazed that when she said that if I stopped crying I would learn it, I stopped immediately, and she showed me how to do the trick. I’ve never stopped learning magic since that night! I have also learned that magic can make tears disappear!
Here is a rare film of Joanna Rawson floating!
My Aunt Joanna The Floating Lady!
Thank you Clayton Rawson for the video clip!
Who is the Greatest Magician of all Time?
I would be interested to hear who YOU think it is.
Here is my vote! (You can see that I am biased though). Just watch Abigail and see how smart, funny and skilled she is! Can you see why I voted for her?
In this video, my dear wife Abigail talks about our much-needed healing of Mind, Body & Spirit! Love is the greatest healer of all. Magic is good medicine!
