Searching
for the White Magician

Spiritual
Psychology and Manifestation of Destiny

by
Stefania Magidson in dialogue with Carmen Firan

I
invite the reader to join me on a journey of exploration and
rediscovery of that inner place that holds the lens of mystery
through which Life filters, if we allow it. I invite (him) to find
that magic wand that transforms inner worlds into realities whose
potential is only temporarily dormant.”….

Stefania Magidson

I
love books where there is a dialogue between two individuals that
allows for dynamic discourse rather than simply a teaching or
theoretical format. Searching for the White Magician is just that.
Its premise is not new-that of seeking the Higher Self and its
connection to the deeper understanding of our resonance with the
Universe. But, it bears repeating in all venues, methodology and
practices to really allow access for everyone. Stefania and Carmen
exchange ideas and philosophies around this query and within the
pages an unfolding of practical application and understanding is
revealed.

Stefania
has a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, and her level of
inquiry and overlay of psychological analogy from a spiritually
infused scientific perspective offers the reader something to grab on
to when aspects of intuition and reaching beyond the five senses
arises.

Chapter
topics flow from the realization that we are a “Grain
of Sand”
in a much larger sandbox
that is the Cosmos, to the question of how and if we “Can
(we) Choose Our Destiny”
,
“Feminism and Femininity”,
and more. My favorite was the chapter of discussion around “Religion,
Dogma and Divinity.”
I appreciated
the author’s perspective that they are not mutually synonymous and
it is our work to sort out what we believe and what we believe in.

The
conversation regarding “The Cycle of Existence” provides enough
meat and bones to satisfy the most cynical of inquiry with an opening
quote of… “Let us learn to add
life to our years, not just years to our life.”
Simply
heeding this statement opens you up to the possibilities inherent
when you choose to be more present and engaged in the joy and pain of
your life.

It
is clear in reading this little book that Stefania has a good grasp
of Buddhist and traditional Eastern philosophies and although not
clearly overt in every reading, are the underpinnings of what becomes
an exploration of what is both philosophical and inherently spiritual
in nature. The questions are universal, the answers highly individual
and personalized and the structure and wisdom within this book lead
the reader to thinking more broadly, feeling with more awareness and
being more attentive in all aspects of their lives, mundane,
spiritual and subtle.

So
who is the White Magician?


The White Magician is that Higher Self inside of us which understands
the subtle notions of the Universe and is in direct contact with our
intuition,, that side of us which has access to what is available
beyond the five senses…”

All
in all, this is a surprising important read that may be small in
size, but packs a deliberate awakening punch!
