In this class, we discuss the fundamental creative forces of inertia and dynamism, plus the various types of black magic.
Brandon: Welcome everyone to The Art of Reality Creation 2.0. This is the first class of this course, and we're happy to be here today. We are here. It's me (Brandon, obviously), and Christine...
Brandon: And Mr. Justin.
Justin: Hello, everyone.
Christine: You don't have to call him "mister."
Brandon: But I want to call him "mister." "Justin" sounds too short. Well, I guess "Christine" does, too.
Christine: Mrs. Christine.
Brandon: Mrs. Christine just sounds awful. [laughs] Anyway, we are here for The Art of Reality Creation 2.0. I'm very excited about this. I'm also a good bit nervous because this has been a long time in coming.
Christine: You'll be fine.
Brandon: I think it will go well, though. First of all, a few brief things before anything. First of all, as I've said before, a lot of this is very much updated from the first class. There is some stuff that will be the same or similar. It will all be a bit different because I'm not going off notes or anything from the first class. It's loosely based on it, but I'm not trying to go off of those notes or anything.
Christine: Unless you had a relapse of memory.
Brandon: That's true, but I didn't. And if I did, you would remind me. [laughs]
Christine: That is true.
Brandon: This will all be based on that, but there is a lot of new material, especially since The Art of Reality Creation 1.0 (which is what I'm now calling the other one), we've had basically my introduction to the left-hand path since last October and magic and now this other stuff recently with black magic and getting more specific about all that kind of thing. Not only that, but we've had the subconscious structures, the different types of goals--none of this stuff was in the first class. It was very much time for an update. This is hopefully going to live up to that expectation.
Is This Class About the “Law of Attraction”?
Brandon: The second thing that I want to mention is that essentially (I've mentioned before) I've used the law of attraction publicly very, very reluctantly. I am not really going to do so very much here because I don't have to. [laughs]
Christine: Because I told you that.
Brandon: I wasn't planning on it anyway. Usually I'm doing it for getting keywords in for the search engines and for law of attraction people to find us. All of you already know what we're up to. You already know what we're about. I don't have to pretend. I don't have to say things I don't really want to or terms I don't want to use. I'm not going to put up that façade here. I'm going to be as open as I can. The reality is, it's not just semantics. That's the thing. The law of attraction as commonly stated is a very passive process. Now, Justin and I (well, I used to)--Justin has never done it that way. [laughs]
Brandon: I haven't for the last 6 months, so it's not really an accurate term. There is part of the process. There is what I would call the law of attraction where like attracts like, but it's such a minuscule part of the process that to name the whole process after that is really misleading. It's really misleading. I don't really feel right using that term here because it's not what we're doing. Again, most of law of attraction teachings and the law of attraction in general (I mean, it's in the name: the law of attraction, you don't have to work to attract)....That's really why people like it. It's a very passive process.
What we're doing here (which you could call creation, but I'm going to use my term of late: black magic, or magic in general) is active and creative. It's very active. There's not really much passive about it. Yes, there are elements of it that are passive, but on its own it's not really passive at all because as we said in the support call #33, this is your forging of the path to your goal. That doesn't sound passive, does it? Especially for these next level goals, you're forging the path to your goal.
Justin: It's not.
Brandon: You're forging the path to be a creator, also. That is very active, being the creator of your life. That's why I'm dropping that term "law of attraction," and we're just going to use "magic" or "black magic" or "creation" or anything like that will be synonymous here. We're really not going to use the law of attraction as a term unless it directly applies, like when you actually enter that state of the process, which will come later on. The first stage of the process is very, very, very active and creative. I just want to get terms straight.
If you're wondering why we use the term "black magic," you need to go back and read that post What is black magic? It's on the blog. That will explain where we're coming from on this and why we're using that term. I'm not going to go through the whole thing again.
Justin: I usually use the word "creation." Great creation.
Brandon: Creation. Any of this. It's all synonymous, but basically black magic is the act of imposing your will upon the objective universe. More metaphysically speaking, it is the act of manipulating energy in such a way that the laws of the objective universe are bent to your will. It's all energy work. I said this in the first class, too. It's all energy work. I'm going to teach you a lot about energy, a lot about how to work with and manipulate energy, and how to use that for magic and creation. After this point, no more law of attraction unless it's directly applicable.
Last thing: in the last class, we did long hour-and-a-half classes. We did three of them. They were group live classes. Obviously this time we're doing pre-recordings. Each recording will be approximately an hour. It's us, so we'll probably go a little over. It will be around an hour. I don't honestly know how many recordings there will be yet. I did say three in the marketing. It will be at least three, let's say that. It may be four. It may be five. It may be six. It won't be more than that. I would guess four, maybe five at the most. I don't know, just because of the material. I'm not going to say this is how many they're going to be. We're just going to go until the energy runs out. [laughs]
Going on top of that, your discussion in between each recording (for those who are taking this for the first time) as these recordings are being produced will be invaluable because it will show us what you need more clarity on, what you want us to cover more of, and what we maybe didn't cover as well as we could have. You'll be able to show us where we need to direct our focus as we go through all this. I do have a very specific plan of what I want to cover, but I'm also flexible. Your input is very important for all of this.
With all that said, the first thing I want to cover is (again, going into this idea of magic/black magic/creation) what are we doing here? What is this all about? Again, it's not passive, as I said. It's very active. We already know that. What we're doing here is basically, again, bending the laws of the cosmos and the objective universe to our will. I want to name it for what it is and be very specific about it because what we're doing is disrupting the current order of things to change them to what we want them to be. That's a very powerful statement.
Justin: The words that you'll hear me use are "create" and "initiate" because that's kind of what I am. I'll be honest. I'm aggressive. I almost compare myself to when you say, "Give me the ball and get out of my way." That's just kind of how I've always thought of it.
Brandon: Right. You are very definitely bending and disrupting the laws of the objective universe. That's what you're doing. Let's not mince our words. That's a very powerful thing because we're here for results. All of you know (if you know my blog, if you know who I am) we're here for results. We're not here for feel-good stuff or "the emotions are enough" kind of thing. We are here for results. [laughs] If you're not getting results, it's not worth it.
Christine: You remind me of me right now.
Christine: Because I always say that when I do my massage therapy on my clients. I tell them, "I don't give sissy massages." You're wasting my time and you're wasting yours.
Justin: Yup. Yup. Yup.
Christine: If you want that, you go to a spa because I don't do that. I do deep tissue work, and it's going to hurt.
Justin: Yeah. [laughs] I've never had deep tissue, but I've heard that it does hurt.
Brandon: Oh, it hurts. Oh, my God.
Christine: You're such a wimp.
Brandon: I am a wimp. I know. I admit it freely. [laughs]
Inertia versus Dynamism
Again, we are here for results. What you are doing is not going with the flow. In a certain sense, that comes later, but you're creating the flow that you want to go with. That's the best definition I can describe it as. You're redirecting the flow and then going with it.
I remember in one post I gave the example (I don't remember which post this was now--I think it might have been Speed Up Your Manifestation Process, but I don't know) of you have a water slide. On a water slide, you have to go against the nature of water to go downhill. It has to get pumped up to the top of a water slide so that it can go down. If it's not pumped up to the top first, it's never going to go down the slide. It's just going to sit there. You have to act against the nature of water in order to get it to the top so that then the flow will be to go down the slide. That's what we're doing. We're creating the flow you want to have and then going with the flow to your goal.
The passive part does come in, but not at first. You have to go against that nature. That's why it's black magic. You're disrupting the order. You're going against the nature of water by making it go up when usually it would go down. Then you let it go down from your new point. That's a good metaphor for what we're doing. You're redirecting the flow. That brings me to my first distinction. This is one that I've been thinking about recently. Justin, I talked to you a little bit about this. Inertia versus dynamism. Did I tell you about this?
Christine: I don't know.
Brandon: [laughs] You don't know. Okay.
Brandon: Maybe. Inertia versus dynamism. That is the distinction I want to draw here. When we say "order," what order really is is inertia. Dynamism is the act of disrupting or changing inertia. That's what the magician does. What you have to know and realize is that as long as you don't apply your art as a magician to the world or objective universe, it will remain in inertia, which means that it will continue going as it is. Now what's the Newtonian laws? One of them is something in motion...
Justin: An object in motion stays in motion.
Brandon: Stays in motion unless a force acts against it. Something that is at rest will remain at rest unless something acts against it.
Let's just take money goals, because they're the easiest to discuss. It's very quantitative. Let's say you're making $30,000 a year. That is your inertia.
Christine: I remember this now.
Brandon: Good. [laughs] Surprise! As long as you aren't changing that with these magical principles that we'll discuss, then it will remain at that level.
Brandon: We'll discuss what can possibly change those levels.
Justin: It would be like flowing down a river and just going with the river's flow.
Brandon: Just going with it, right. That's inertia. The world is always going with inertia. Inertia is the way of things. It takes work to go against inertia. If you're in a car and you're at rest and you're trying to move it, it takes fuel and energy in the engine (and I don't know how a car works) to get it moving. If you're moving, it takes the brakes to stop moving or to slow down.
My grandmother used to do this thing when I was a kid. [laughs] My mother got so mad. She used to take me in a car up to the top of this big, big, big hill. We would coast down it. You start at the top and start driving down. She'd let go of the gas and brakes and everything. We'd just coast down the hill. The steeper the hill is (you know how this works) the faster you're going to go down the hill.
Christine: How fast did you go?
Brandon: I don't even know. I don't really know. I don't remember.
Justin: That's what grandparents are for. What you're not supposed to do.
Brandon: [laughs] That's right. We would do that. That was always fascinating to me, because even when you have your foot off the gas, you still have momentum and inertia going until friction and gravity and that kind of stuff acts against it to a sufficient degree that you slow down and stop. If that hill is steep enough, you're going to keep going for a while. That's what inertia is.
Inertia is not necessarily a bad thing if it's going where you want it to go. It's like that water slide I gave the example of. If that water is at the top, inertia is a great thing because it's going to go down. That's just what it's going to do. That's the nature of the water. If it's at the bottom, then it's not a great thing because it's not where you want it to be. You want it to go back up to the top.
Brandon: So inertia can be used to your advantage. There's nothing that's bad here. It's just that inertia quite often is not where you want it to be. Think of your goal. This is very important. We'll talk probably next class about choosing your goal. This is just general today. Think of a goal you might choose. Where is it right now? Where is that goal right now? Without you acting on it, without anything else magical going on or even intentional action (we'll talk about this in a few minutes) which is a form of black magic, without any input from you, your current goal is at the place dictated by its inertia. Again, if you're making $30,000 or $40,000 or $50,000 a year, that's your inertia unless you go in and try to get a promotion or unless you get fired or something. You're going to keep making that year after year after year.
Brandon: That's your inertia. It takes work.
I will use law of attraction to differentiate where we differ. Where we differ is: law of attraction says your goal is in the flow of the universe. Guess what? No, it's not. Your goal (if it's against the current inertia) is going to take work to get to where you want to go.
Brandon: If you're in that car coasting down the hill and you want to be at the bottom of the hill, then yes, inertia is going where you want to go. But if it's somewhere else, then it's not. It takes work turning where you want to turn, using the fuel to give power to the car and that kind of thing. It takes work to get to where you want to go. That's just basic mechanics. [laughs] That's the difference. With these magical principles, we realize that inertia is what you've been doing and the results you've been getting.
Yes, resistance will play a part, but resistance doesn't really have a part in all this. Again, money. If you're making $30,000 a year, there's not necessarily resistance there. That's really easy to do. You could feel really good and keep making that year after year because that's the inertia. Feeling good isn't going to change that one bit.
Take the usual stereotypical law of attraction practitioner who says, "I am making $30,000. I would like to make $50,000." They ask it once of the universe for 68 seconds or whatever Abraham says. They let it go. They do their thing. They go to work. They don't think about their goal. They go and be happy by watching cat videos or whatnot. Then after a year, they say, "Nothing's changed!" [laughs]
Justin: Is that the average, or is that 68 seconds?
Brandon: 68 seconds is what they say you need to manifest. 68 seconds of pure focus. That's enough for something to manifest. It's not if it's a next-level goal. Maybe for a current-level goal, but then even shorter than that, too. It's not going to change. It might change a slight bit if you were holding on the brakes and then feeling good that little bit let you let them go. Maybe you'll make $32,000. Maybe you'll get a bonus at the end of the year. Something like that. You'll get a small little windfall. It's not going to be that goal. It's not going to be that $50,000 goal.
Justin: You've got to work for that $50,000. That's over half. That's not even next level. Two levels up, almost.
Justin: That would be almost double what you make. More than half double what you make.
Brandon: Yes, two thirds.
Justin: I couldn't get that number out.
Brandon: 166%, sorry. [laughs]
Christine: Of course only you would do that.
Brandon: It takes work. That's what I'm trying to emphasize here. It takes work to go against that inertia. You want to acknowledge where your goal is. You're not there because of resistance. There may be resistance if you're really working towards your next goal. Then yes. But the reason where you are where you are is not necessarily because of resistance. Not likely. Not in most cases. It's just the inertia of it. It's just where it is.
Justin: Because you've already got rid of the resistance to get to that point. That's really just you being passive and going with the flow. You'll attract things on that level, but it's most likely not going to change at all. You really do have to do some work. That's kind of what I did. I knew I always had to do something to make something happen.
What Changes Inertia?
Brandon: You have to apply dynamism (which we'll talk about) to change it. What changes inertia? What changes inertia? Basically two things. You setting and choosing a goal for something more will change it for the positive, more towards what you want. Or, the triggering of resistance may drag it down.
For example, if you have a job and you're getting a good paycheck every few weeks or so and then you get this idea you want to start a business even though you have a lot of fear. You do this bravado thing and say, "I'm going to quit my job and go start my business and be free."
Christine: Oh, my God. That's stupid, for one thing.
Brandon: Unless you are very confident that you know you can do it. Unless you have a lot saved up.
Christine: Yes, but a lot of people don't.
Brandon: Here's what happens. People say, "If I have that level of abundance in my consciousness, then I should keep making it." Not really, because when you quit that job and start that business, first of all, you have all kinds of resistance around that business, most likely, because you have never done it before. Second of all, you've closed a doorway to abundance by leaving your job.
Christine: By leaving, right?
Justin: Right. That was part of your consciousness to abundance.
Brandon: Right. That was one of your doorways. That was one of the ways your subconscious said, "Yes, I can get money this way. That's easy."
Thirdly, your subconscious isn't used to money coming through your business. When you think of getting the same amount or even a lesser amount--let's say $30,000 or $25,000 a year from your business--your subconscious balks. It's like, "No, that's not possible." I remember when I started my business.
Christine: Oh, my.
Brandon: My subconscious was like, "No, there's no way." And now it's been picking up so much more. In March of 2017 (I'll give that for those who are listening much later on) I had the most successful month of all for my business. It topped all previous records for me of income. My subconscious got used to that idea: that I can make money through the business. But before...
Christine: Part of it was my fault.
Brandon: Certain comments. Words are very, very powerful. We won't go into that. [laughs] What's that, Justin?
Justin: Part of what was her fault?
Brandon: I'll give the quick story.
Christine: There is Christine again. Here we go.
Brandon: You told me to, literally. I wasn't going to do it.
Christine: I know. It's a good example. Go ahead.
Brandon: In July 2015 I started the business. July 2 I got my NLP certification as practitioner of NLP. I started my business. Immediately, that month I got a lot more business than I expected. Every time I got a new signup, I thought, "You're joking." My subconscious did this thing where it said, "There's no way that's going to happen again." But it would happen again and happen again and happen again. It was getting easier. I was doing pretty well. That was a very, very successful month. Not as successful as the last one in March, but it was...
Christine: It was close.
Brandon: It was close. For the first month of a business, that was amazing. But the thing was, it was all repeat clients. I had the same handful of clients that kept coming back for second or third or fourth sessions, which you'd think was amazing, but not much in the way of new clients because I wasn't well-known yet. Christine said. It obviously triggered some resistance in my subconscious. Christine says. [laughs] It was meant so well, too. "Maybe soon you'll actually get some new clients." Wasn't that how you said it?
Christine: I think so. Something like that.
Brandon: "Maybe soon you'll actually get some new clients." I'm like, "Oh." It hit this perfect....
Christine: If you were to say that to me, I wouldn't be upset.
Brandon: You don't know that. I've said things before that I didn't think would upset you, and it did.
Christine: That's true.
Brandon: It hit this perfect weak spot in my armor, so to speak, and it crumbled.
Justin: It hit your Achilles' heel.
Brandon: It crumbled. Almost immediately, all business dried up for four months.
Justin: Wow, Christine.
Brandon: [laughs] Those are some powerful words, right? For about four months.
Christine: I didn't know I was such a powerful...
Brandon: Now sometimes she still does this. I say, "Christine, don't use your words like that. Take it back." She says, "Okay, I take it back." I'm like, "Say the opposite."
Justin: You blew that house down.
Christine: I try to be so careful now.
Brandon: I know. Sometimes you still....I know. That's the danger of letting other people know your goals, especially when you're married. They'll hit on those.
Christine: I'm more careful now.
Brandon: Yes, you are. You're a lot better.
Christine: That's my job. I'm supposed to...
Justin: That's your job? Oh, my God.
Christine: You don't know what he put me through years ago.
Brandon: With what?
Christine: Nothing. It's okay.
Justin: Vengeance. Revenge.
Brandon: Right. [laughs] Anyway, that's the power of words. A short little lesson on the power of words. Be careful how you use them because they will crush you if you use them wrong.
Christine: Yes, that is true.
Brandon: Again, the two ways that inertia can be changed are willing and choosing your goal and actually moving towards it, or resistance that is triggered. I gave the example of the job. Here's what you have to understand about these things. I said how some people will say, "I already have that level of abundance in my subconscious, so it should keep up." Your subconscious doesn't see general abundance. Sort of. Kind of. But it also sees the sources, the doorways through which that abundance can come. I'm just using a money example because it's a good quantitative goal.
If you're getting $30,000 a year, but your subconscious knows that that paycheck is there every two weeks, every two weeks, every two weeks, that's inertia. That's easy. If you change that or disrupt that, then it doesn't know where the money is going to come from. All the other pathways for the money to come aren't as free. Those doorways aren't as open. By default, things are going to drop. #1, you've closed that doorway. #2, you've introduced a lot more resistance. That's a way that you can drag your inertia down to a place you don't want to go.
Justin: I've tried to tell people that say, "How does Brandon do?" that he's got the highway already built. You've got to build your highway. That's why he can do it. You've got to build your highway.
Brandon: I mean, I started in earnest working on money goals in October of 2016. Nearly every month, I saw more income than the month before. Nearly every month. That pathway of abundance was getting built up month after month after month. Then, once those structures were built, opportunities just started flooding in. The one that I'm working on right now is very close to completion. Then Christine's job now. As a married couple, we have a joint bank account, so her money is my money, and my money is her money. A lot of my manifestations will come through her.
Christine: Yes. It happens all the time.
Brandon: Because it's possible. In fact, when I first started with the law of attraction back in 2015, a lot of my money manifestations would come through Christine. It was a sore spot for me.
Christine: You hated that.
Brandon: I hated that. I wanted to be the provider and all that. Those doorways weren't open for the money to come through my business yet. There was too much resistance, too many blockages there.
Justin: That was where the business started, right?
Brandon: That was when the business started, those dry months. We still did okay financially because a lot of it would come through Christine.
Christine: There were times when we'd just barely make it to the end.
Brandon: Sure. Yes. Definitely. We struggled for sure.
Christine: We haven't had those times since…
Brandon: For a year now. [laughs]
Christine: I don't know. Maybe even less.
Brandon: Yes, a little bit less. Summer, I guess.
Christine: I would say it started in October when you did your stuff. You kept telling your story about the rent. It would only work if we gave my mom less rent. After we decided to give it to her, we just kept getting all these blessings after blessings.
Brandon: Yes, that started over a year ago.
You have to be careful about the doorways these things can come through.
Justin: Yes. I tried to hint at that on calls without making it quite like that because I wasn't sure if you were ready to do that. No, there are doorways. That's why they say in conjure and these other arts that you open your roads, the crossroads, the doorways. That's what that is. You have to know where your money can come from (or whatever it is you're looking for). You have to open those channels. I think that I said if Brandon was trying to make his money through another avenue, it wouldn't be nearly as easy. That avenue is not built. You could still do it, and you may be able to do it a little easier than average because you're used to the feel, but you wouldn't be able to do it as easily because that door is not open. That's why I told people. I said when you've got more people in the way like at a work site, it's more difficult to open that door. You have to do more stuff to open that door.
Justin: That's how that works.
Brandon: And that's what's happening with this opportunity I'm working with. You know the job I'm working towards getting. That has brought up a lot of resistance because that's not a usual doorway for me. That's never been a usual thing.
Christine: You blocked it for a while.
Brandon: Right. Exactly. I have the business. Now we have Christine's job, which is amazing. That's a baseline. That's pretty current-level goal stuff. We'll talk about those things in another class recording. This new opportunity has been pretty resistant in some ways which I'm working through. It's actually settling in now. I feel the energy sort of settling. It's been more resistant because my subconscious isn't used to that. There have been a lot of fears that have been coming up. That's been happening.
Whatever the result is, it's taught me a lot about how this stuff works. The business, which is a miracle now because now it's a baseline. It's pretty easy because it's a base amount to come through every month. It's been like that for a while now. Then, like I said, Christine's job and the other income sources we have, little minor things. Then this opportunity coming up that is more difficult. That is a doorway I'm working on opening. I think that's an important lesson that whatever your goal is, you want to also look at the doorways it might need to use. Are those doors open for you? Sometimes you want to choose a door that is already sort of open before you work on opening another one.
Brandon: That's like, if you're wanting to start that business and you're in a job, maybe you don't like that job, but if you don't have that confidence, you probably want to stay awhile. That's an open door of abundance for you. You really don't want to close off that door when another door isn't ready to take on that weight.
Justin: Absolutely not. There are people who got themselves in a lot of trouble.
Christine: It took Brandon a long time. Not to disclose your age, but you're going to be 29 in September.
Brandon: Yes, I've been working at this since college.
Christine: Yes, with this potential opportunity. It took my sister a long time, too, to get what she wanted. She was actually older than you when she figured it out, probably 31 or 32.
Brandon: You want to focus on those doorways and see how the manifestations can come through.
That's an important point again: inertia and dynamism are the two basic forces you're looking at. Both are useful. Inertia: look at where your goal is now. Feel free to comment about this in the comments of this lesson. You don't have to name your goal necessarily. That can be private sometimes.
Where is the inertia? How satisfactory is the current inertia of that goal? I'm guessing not very much so, but let me know a little bit about that. Just observe for yourself where it is. Where would it need to go for it to be satisfactory to you? Basically, what you're trying to do with magic and the process of creation is (this is what we mean) disrupting the laws of the objective universe, the order of the objective universe. You're taking the current inertia and adding your will (which we'll talk about later) and adding dynamism to the mix to disrupt that inertia until you reach a new level of inertia. Then you let it go. You let it go on its path.
You're using minimal energy to get there. It's like willpower. You don't want to always keep up willpower because it's not going to last. People who try to start a new habit--if you change too much at once (I've talked about this before), it's not going to work. Your subconscious can't keep up. The inertia's being changed too quickly. Dynamism takes a lot of willpower. You can't keep up that willpower. When you inevitably let go, the inertia hasn't actually been changed. You just fought the current inertia.
Christine: People say that it takes 21 days to kick a habit or to start a new habit. I don't believe it. I think it takes longer than that.
Brandon: It just depends on what it is and how big it is.
Christine: But I don't think that it's a set amount.
Inertia and making small changes
Brandon: You have to make small changes. That's what we'll be dealing with. If you try to change it too much at once, it won't work. You're using minimal energy to get to that point. You do want to use inertia. If you have to constantly work to stay at your new level, you won't stay there for long.
Justin: No, you can't do that. Sometimes it's just easier to do it in chunks. So if you say, "My level is… I want to make $60,000 a year." If you're at 30, and there's an opportunity for you to make $38,000 a year, I'll take it. That's advancement. You lock in at that level. I'm not at 60, but I'm getting there. That's a sign from the universe. You see another opportunity to get to 50, and you take it. You keep going up until you get to 60. You slow down at 50 and you lock in with your Hermit path or inertia. When your subconscious is used to it, you jump again.
Christine: That's exactly what you did for years and years and years.
Brandon: Right. And even in recent times, each time I increased my goal, it was by about 20%, which was pretty believable for me.
Justin: That's how I do it and have done it for years. When I want something, I spring forward and stay in place. Very powerful, one powerful leap if I can. Then stay there.
Brandon: Inertia is useful for that reason. It helps you to lock in that new level. You can't hold it in motion forever. The point is to create a new order or inertia so that it will pick up from where you left off. That's your aim with all of this. Be active as long as you have to be active. Then let it go. Then the flow will take it naturally to where you want it to be.
I've said this before. For someone who is making $30,000 to be making $1 million a year is like pooh! Impossible!
Justin: It would be like going to the top of the hill on the roller coaster and letting inertia take you down to the other side. There's a tipping point when your actual momentum will take you to where you want to go, but you've got to get through most of the resistance first. For most people, you can't build up enough power to do it in one. It's possible to do that, but I would not advise it for the most part because it will rip you apart. I just went through that. That was a nightmare. [laughs] But I had to. It worked. I succeeded. That was using magic. I just want to say that's what you want to do: take what the resistance gives you and keep moving forward. Don't stay there until you get what you want. Until you get to a stopping point. Then you base out with your inertia.
Brandon: Like I was saying, if you're making $30,000, making a million is going to be impossible. That would take monumental amounts of work. If you're already making a million, then making a million is inertia. It doesn't take work. That's what it's all about. Then that's the flow. But if you're making $30,000, then making a million is not inertia. That is tons of dynamism, to the degree that I don't think you could handle it unless you have really strong willpower to hold it up until it sets in. Please don't try that at home.
Justin: You move heaven and earth and some other people out of the way. [laughs]
Christine: I'm a professional. Don't try this at home.
Brandon: I wouldn't even attempt it.
Christine: I wouldn't, either. Not worth it.
Justin: Your entire landscape changed. [laughs]
Brandon: Right. But if you're already a millionaire, then that is current level. That's inertia. That's easy for you. That's nothing. That's a piece of cake. If you're not there, you're not there. That's what we mean about being active and then letting inertia take over to carry on the structures you've set up.
Three Kinds of Black Magic
Brandon: Last thing I want to discuss: regarding black magic and how we're going to do all this, there are 3 levels of black magic. We will cover, let's say at least one, maybe one and a half in this class. Black magic, the art of creating change in the objective universe through your will.
There is lesser black magic. I'll define these in a moment. Lesser black magic. There is what has been called medial (meaning in the middle) black magic. There is greater black magic.
The difference is this. I'll define the extremes, and then by the extremes we can find the middle medial black magic.
Lesser black magic is not really magic at all. You're using principles like anything in psychology, NLP, persuasion to indirectly but very effectively get your desired outcome. You'll apply a little pressure here and there--social engineering, things like that, knowing how to talk to people in the right way to accomplish your goal. There's not much magic about it. You have to be lined up with it energetically for it to work, but there's not much energetic about it. You just have to know how to apply psychology.
It reminds me of (I don't know if any of our listeners have read the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett)...
Justin: I read one book of it, I think. Half a book.
Brandon: There's this sub-series about these three witches. Oh, they're so funny, too. One of the things they say. They don't like to use their magic all the time. They don't like to be really showy. They call it "headology." [laughs] Because it's in your head. Basically what I just said: manipulating someone else through words and actions alone. It's headology. You know how to manipulate them. It doesn't require any actual magic.
Christine: Then they probably think it is.
Brandon: Yes, of course other people think it kind of is. The thing is, by the time they realize what they've done, it's already done. "Why did I do that?"
You see it all the time in advertising, marketing, politics, anything trying to persuade you of something is going to use lesser black magic--or as our three witches call it, "headology." [laughs] If you've read the Discworld series or any of it, if you've read about the three witches, then you'll know what I'm talking about. It exactly lines up with what lesser black magic is.
Justin: Dwarves come with their own axes. That's in there.
Brandon: [laughs] Which book was it you read?
Justin: I don't remember. I just remember they said, "Good thing about dwarf mercenaries is that they come with their own axes."
Brandon: I've probably read that. I've read most of the books by this point.
Christine: Yes, are there any you haven't read?
Brandon: Yes, there are. Right now I'm on Soul Music. You should. They're so good.
Christine: I don't like them because I don't like the recording.
Brandon: Read the ones about the witches. They're so good. Anyway, that's headology, lesser black magic.
Greater black magic is really where you pull out all the stops. You do the ritual. You do the psychodrama of the ritual. Through ritual, you make changes to your inner landscape or subjective universe so that changes can be made to the objective universe.
Through ritual, you're changing how your subconscious sees things, what your perspective is, and then that magical link (which truly you could call the law of attraction because you're changing the inertia from within by dynamism) means because like attracts like and what you hold within is what is going to happen without, it pulls it into alignment and you get your goal, just through a ritual. That's greater black magic.
In the middle we have everything else. Medial black magic is basically the same thing where you are changing your subjective universe (what I used to call your inner reality), but you're doing it through more simple means. You do it through pure will, visualization, affirmations, the whole domain of the law of attraction, except that's all still very watered down and most of it doesn't work that well. But medial black magic is the stuff we're teaching here.
In this class, The Art of Reality Creation 2.0, we are teaching primarily medial black magic, which can be effective in many, many, many cases. As I discussed in the support call #33 (I think it was anyway), that will cover a lot of your cases, but not when you want to go further. That ritual is going to move a lot more energy. Where was it, Christine? We discussed that. It wasn't the support call, was it?
Justin: I remember. It was...
Brandon: Or was it in the podcast?
Brandon: Just read all our stuff and you'll get there eventually. You need ritual to move a lot more energy.
Christine: I don't remember where that was, either.
Brandon: The law of attraction stuff will just sort of get you part of the way. It was during the support call, because then someone said am I just going to ignore law of attraction stuff on this site. It was on the support call.
Justin: It was on the support call. Yes. No, it's just that the law of attraction is hard to get through if you do not have an actual highway. You have to really work with law of attraction through visualization and a lot of power and emotion and energy. You have to really work to get it to work, whereas if you use magic or call down a deity to help you, you're going to get a lot more out of it and move a lot more energy.
Brandon: Right, so medial black magic is what we're dealing with. That's going to get you a lot of the way. If we're using the highway analogy, if you have major traffic congestion, then medial black magic may not be enough. Or if your goal is so big that you really need to make huge changes, medial black magic may not be enough. In general, it will get you part of the way. It will do a lot. These techniques are very, very, very effective.
Again, if you want to go deeper, you want to do greater black magic. That's really why we have The Order of the Black Flame that's going to cover all that stuff. Someone asked me if I'm going to cover ritual in this class. No, I'm not, because ritual is greater black magic, and that is not the domain of this class. If you want that, you will have to join the order. We'll be talking about medial black magic. A little bit of lesser because we'll be talking about NLP, but mostly in the context of changing your own subjective universe through NLP techniques.
Really, we're going to be talking about medial black magic nearly exclusively. If you want the other types, you'll have to find that in the order or through other resources. That's really what we're dealing with: using your will to create change in your subjective universe through various techniques which we will discuss--a lot of the common ones, visualization, affirmations, journaling (one of my favorites), stuff like that. That is going to change your subjective universe and thereby create change in the objective universe. That's medial black magic.
Why Do The Outside and the Inside Affect Each Other?
Brandon: To explain how that works, why is it that when we change the inside, it changes the outside? Why is that? That's what people call the law of attraction. I like how… there's a document called "Black Magic" by Michael Aquino. You can find it online. How he describes it in that document is that there's a magical link between the subjective universe and the objective universe. The subjective universe is your inner world, your imagination, your thoughts, the meaning you place on the outer objective universe. That's your subjective universe. There's a link between that and the objective universe.
We know the objective universe can influence your subjective universe. Christine saying those words to me is a great example. When she said to me what she said about soon getting actual new clients, that was an objective universe event (which was through her words) which influenced to a very great degree my subjective universal layout, so to speak. Because of that link, how I felt about my business changed radically.
But the link also goes the other way. It brings us back to the hermetic principle "As within, so without. As above, so below." It all works. What you tend to change or be or hold in your subjective universe will be reflected in some way in your objective universe. That is how your subjective universe influences the outside world. Changing the inside is really what magic is all about. Changing the inside through that magical link also is reflected in the outside. That's how it works.
Again, things get in the way sometimes, obviously, like resistance and subconscious programming and things like that, but that's just more of your subjective universe fighting back. The subjective universe can have inertia, too. You have certain ways of thinking, being, and acting. That is inertia. It takes dynamism. It takes will, which we'll talk about some other time, to interrupt that order and insert your own order.
Again, when Christine said those words to me, through that link, the objective universe of her words influenced my subjective universe. Then inversely, through the link the other way, my new perspective on my business which said, "Oh my gosh, I can't make money through this. I'm not going to get new clients," blah blah blah, created four months of a dry spell of no clients. That was again when the business started, all that kind of stuff happened. That is how it went both ways. Through the outside, I was influenced. Because of the influence that I had on the inside, the outside was changed in a way I did not want. [laughs] It's just a great example. I don't mean to harp on it.
Christine: No, no.
Brandon: It's just a great example.
Christine: I'm the one who brought it up.
Brandon: Yes. I wasn't going to go there.
Again, we talked about why we're not using the law of attraction except when we're comparing. We'll definitely do that. For our own principles, it is mainly medial black magic or just black magic or just magic. Whatever. It's the creation process or magic because it's more active, as I said earlier. We talked about inertia versus dynamism and why inertia is useful, but it's probably not where you want it to be right now, and you have to respect that and learn how to change it. We talked about different ways of changing it through your will or through resistance that's inserted into the mix (accidentally, usually). We talked about the three different types of black magic: lesser, medial, and greater black magic. Again, in this class, we'll be discussing medial black magic. I discussed a little bit how that works with the magical link between the two universes. That is everything, I think, for today.
Next time, we'll probably be discussing (I think--again, this is flexible, so don't quote me on it) basically some more specific principles of how all this stuff works. We'll talk about how to choose your goal, the different types of goals there are, how to determine what kind yours is. We'll just see from there where the energy flows. I discussed publicly about the reality control room. I'm not sure which class that will be in. But it will be soon. I'm excited for that one. [laughs]
Justin: It's quoted guys, so count on it.
Brandon: It's going to be here.
Justin: You said don't quote you or something. [laughs]
Brandon: No, it will be definite. I just don't know when it will be yet.
Please comment. I asked you to think about your goal and let us know where that inertia is now and where you want it to be. That will give you a good idea about why you're not there yet and how big of a leap am I taking to get there. Then we'll teach you all the principles to fill in that gap. Leave a comment. Discuss these principles on the class page. We'll all be replying to that, I'm sure. Maybe not Christine. She doesn't like comments. That's okay. Justin and I will definitely reply, though.
I want to have a discussion there. It only works if you're active with all of this and really applying it. We can't force this down your throat. You have to apply it. It's really helpful if you ask us your specific questions or talk to us about the problems you're having. That's the only way we can really know what's going on and what we have to do to help. I hope that everyone enjoyed this. We will return next week with the second class. Again, let us know if anyone has any questions. Otherwise, I hope everyone has a great week. Bye, everyone.
