In my upcoming novel, Sorcerer and the Spy (Book #1, Wizards of the Wild West series), I describe how the hero, Rogan “Rogue” Dair needs to cross from one side of a crowded train to the other without being seen. To become invisible to other humans, my wizard hero doesn’t want to use his magic, because he doesn’t want to deplete his reserves for an upcoming Mage Duel.
Fortunately, Rogue doesn’t need incantations, talismans, magical squares, or a functioning wand. He doesn’t even need camouflage clothing! All he needs is the strength of his intention. The Ancients say that intention is the real power behind magic.
I can’t remember where I read about his real-world “magic feat,” but each time I’ve tried it, the trick really works.
How to Become Invisible
Go to a grocery store, a crowded playground, or a busy street corner.
Stand absolutely still.
Set the intention that you are transparent. That you are invisible, like light or air.
Breathe deeply. Remain peaceful. Clear your mind of all other thought. Concentrate on being transparent. Do not move.
Be patient and wait. (WARNING!! People WILL walk into you — with shopping carts, too. Ouch!)
Why is it so easy to turn invisible in an area where other humans congregate?
Because unlike rabbits or wolves, humans rely more on their eyesight than they do any other physical sense to scan their surroundings.
Humans are also preoccupied by their thoughts. Fess up: how many of you REALLY pay attention to what’s going on around you, especially when you walk through an area that you’ve visited dozens of times before? Chances are, you’re ticking off a list of errands in your mind or reviewing a conversation that you recently had. You’re not paying attention to where you walk.
Finally, we’re all connected. Scientists have proven that a healthy biomagnetic field (your “aura”) can extend as much as 30 feet around you when you’re healthy and happy. In fact, being pure energy, your aura extends much further than 30 feet (our technology is limited in what it can measure.)
So here’s food for thought: your mind sends out energy waves, called “thoughts,” all the time. Those thoughts continue onward and onward without limitation, attracting to you like-minded energy. (This is a simplistic explanation for the Universal Law of Attraction.)
Every time you set a strong intention (“I am unseen, I am transparent, I am invisible”) that thought wave is bombarding the energies of the people around you and attracting those people who are inclined to agree.
Typically, the people you are attracting (during this experiment in invisibility) aren’t concentrating on a strong intention not to collide with stationary objects. As a result, those people will be subtly influenced by your strong intention to remain unseen. Thus, they will inadvertently step on your foot or mow you down with a shopping cart.
But don’t take my word for it. Try it out! (No, I will not be held responsible if somebody knocks you over. ::sheesh:: Use common sense and MOVE before someone runs into you, for heaven’s sake!)
Have fun with your “invisibility” magic. Stay safe! And let me know what happens after you try your magic experiment to become invisible.
