Exploring a New System

About a year ago, I rebuilt this blog site with WordPress. This has worked well, so over the last week, I’ve rebuilt the PowerKeys Publishing website with WordPress.  Now, I’m switching the system that handles email from arpReach to Mautic. Or, at least, I’m exploring Mautic to see if it’s going to be a good fit for me. I had learned of Mautic, a free open-source marketing automation tool, a few years ago.  Back then,

Winter Reflection

Here it is less than 2 weeks before Christmas, and I finally have a chance to sit down and breathe again.  WOW!  What a year! I know I’m not the only one who feels that life continues to speed up at a phenomenal rate.  Most of the folks I talk to and work with feel the same way.  In fact, just last night, someone said that time itself is speeding up. Speaking of last night,

A Trip to Egypt – A PowerPoint Presentation

I’m adding a new video to my portfolio here to showcase how a PowerPoint presentation may be converted to an online presentation. The challenge with doing videos of a live presentation using PowerPoint is that often, the lights are dimmed so the audience can see the screen, and rarely is is possible to get a clean video of the material projected. Not much can be done about recording video in a dark room.  You either

Unlocking Your Infinite Prayer Power

I just posted the video from my talk last night at the local Coptic Center.  In this talk, I provide some details on how we can increase our ability to use the 3 key factors which make prayer work, namely Faith, Focus, and Feeling. This talk wraps up with a guided walkthrough of the Harmonic Prayer process, in which I introduced a new element to help increase your faith in the coming manifestation. Enjoy!

Drum Washing

I attended an event last night which included a special type of drum circle / healing service called a “Drum Washing”. Essentially, a group of us stood around a person sitting in the center of the circle and drummed, aiming the vibrations of the drum towards the person receiving the healing energies. Here is the recording of the drumming parts, edited for continuity. Enjoy!

Stars, Spells, Secrets, and Sorcery

As I’m preparing for another talk here in my local area, I’m reminded of the first book I found which opened the doors to the REALITY of metaphysical phenomenon.  “Stars, Spells, Secrets, and Sorcery” by Barbara Haislip. Still have a copy on my bookshelf since that was such a significant turning point in my life. That book introduced me to astrology, numerology, palmistry, divination, and some simple techniques for manifesting a desired result. I remember

Are You Missing Out?

When you find yourself burdened with too many things to do, what is the best way to handle it?  Do you plow through the list as quickly as you can, or do you selectively choose which things are “important enough” to take care of, and not worry about the rest? Myself, I do a little of each. As an example, just yesterday I compiled a list of things I’d really like to get done in

Recording Fireworks

A nephew of mine brought in some fireworks to a family get together, and it was a perfect opportunity for me to test out my ability to capture quality video from such a display.  I think we all did rather well — Jeff, myself, and my DVX200. Video was shot with VLOG, at UHD 60fps and 1/120 shutter speed, at base ISO (500).  First part was shot with the iris wide open (F2.8), and about

Harmonic Prayer Workshop

A little over a week ago, I gave a 45-minute preview of my new Harmonic Prayer workshop to a local group.  In this preview, you get the main principles which make prayer work, and a simple 5-step process to ensure that you get maximum results from your prayers. Using these principles, and similar processes, I’ve been able to manifest things that have no physical explanation, such as controlling the weather, stopping a tornado, manifesting “found”
