By Victoria Pendragon
In the early 90’s I left behind a disease that, two years previously, had been killing me slowly and painfully. The disease is called progressive systemic sclerosis and there is no known cure for it. That I managed to walk away from the experience not just well again but in almost perfect condition, my body reversing 98% of what the disease had wrought, is astounding. When I tell physicians what happened I usually have to produce my medical records in order for them to believe me.
During the worst of the disease, as my body was turning slowly to scar tissue, I was aware that something was going on beneath the surface of my consciousness because while my waking hours were spent in hell, in the few hours of sleep that I could manage, I was in heaven and there was something about that blissful unconsciousness that allowed me embrace what I was going through as high adventure.
Years later, after I was well and functional and out in the world again, I studied to become an ordained minister and a spiritual counselor, hoping to transmit some of the wisdom I’d stumbled across to others in need of healing but I struggled with finding the words to explain the mind change that had, for the most part, happened in my sleep. Not surprisingly, the clarity I needed also came through sleep…and the inspiring words of a man, Louis Caracciola, who gave me a formula to activate my sleeping mind.
Once I had that formula I felt my body shift into gear again, just as it had, all by itself, when I’d been ill. I’ve always been gifted at recognizing how an emotion can have a life of its own, on seeing the shared aspects of seemingly disparate events. I used that skill coupled with Louis’ formula to create a series of instructions for the sleeping mind that would allow someone to effectively re-program the cellular consciousness of his or her body.
I started experimenting with the technique on myself. After seeing the sorts of changes that began happening for me, my husband decided to try it too. Impressed with what was going on, I shared the technique with my clients and, over the course of the next few years, began expanding the scope of the work. The testimonials began pouring in as more of my clients began seeing their lives change for the better.
The last decade has seen a spate of self-help books based on thinking, but thinking does not – cannot – change the information held in the cellular intelligence of the body, information that has been collected over a lifetime, most of it, in the first 5 years of life when the synapses of the brain multiply at a rate that is never seen again, information that sets us up to attract exactly what we have known. This is why children raised in an abusive household so often grow up and create abusive households of their own and why those who have known pure love in their formative years, tend to attract pure love when they are older. It is the well known Law of Attraction at work and it starts, not in the mind, but in the cells of the body.
How could I not want to share this work with the world? Just to keep it to myself, helping a few dozen people at a time, seemed almost criminal. Sleep Magic has been designed as a do-it-yourself program that anyone with a disciplined mindset can use to become more comfortable with who they are and how they are in the world.
