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”

FPC Niles Flood Response

Here’s a recent project I worked on, doing both videography and editing for a video intended to elicit donations and volunteers to help out with continuing efforts to support those affected by a recent flood in the area of Niles, MI. I’ve pulled out the contact info for this version, but otherwise, it’s essentially what was delivered to the client. What was originally expected to be a short project ended up taking about 12 hours

Symphony of Peace Prayers

Just finished editing and uploading a video which used a new piece of equipment — a Flycam stabilizer.  This is a “steadi-cam” type of tool, which helps to keep the camera steady when moving around. Since this was my first time using it, I wasn’t as steady with it as I’d like, so I also ran the footage through a piece of stabilizing software — Mercalli V4.  This was a nice combination, and one I’ll

Advanced Harmonic Prayer

Six years ago, in 2012, after coming home from a trip to Hawaii, I was inspired to write a new book called “Harmonic Prayer“.  This was 4 years after writing my “Choose To Believe” book, and I felt this would give folks a ‘shortcut’ to shifting the beliefs required to manifest their desires. I still feel that a process of prayer can be one of the best ways to shift our beliefs so they may

What Being Open to Receive Actually Means

Over the last few weeks, I’ve gotten sucked into a whole new world of information after one of my readers suggested I check out Neville Goddard. Neville is quite an interesting fellow. You really should check out his stuff. There are a BUNCH of YouTube videos, although they tend to be audio recordings with a static image. Some are Neville speaking, and others are folks reading from the written material.  I like the ones featuring

Exploring New Storage Options

My last post was focused on backups, and my work on this has uncovered a few more details which has caused me to expand the project into the core storage used for my main data as well. Specifically, I’ve just converted (2) 4TB hard drives into a single RAID-0 striped storage volume.  While most folks do this simply to get faster access to their data, and this was one of the reasons for my doing

Upgrading my Backup Strategy

As an online publisher, I collect a fair amount of data over time, although it is nothing compared to the data collected from my photography / videography activities. After 15 years of producing books, audio recordings, and a few videos, I can fit everything (including educational and software downloads) onto a 500GB hard drive, which is super-simple to back up for secure storage. In just 5 years of photography & videography, I’ve already amassed well
