Hi All,

Recently, I’ve been rereading, “The Magical Approach” and wow, Seth sure talked about a lot of interesting and somewhat diverse things in this little book.

While rereading it, I came across two different sections where Seth seems to be giving us some good examples of what does and what doesn’t work in regards to “creating your reality”.

I’ve captured these two sections in the 2 spoilers below. I've also used Bold font, to highlight some areas.

Hi All,

In rereading, TMA, “The Magical Approach”, I’ve discovered that there were several references in this book, to the Seth book, NOME.  In fact, it appears to me that some of the subjects discussed in NOME, actually lead directly into TMA.  Specifically in NOME, Ch 5, S824.

This is the session where Seth talks about Jane and Rob who recently watched the “Cinderella” story on television. He then goes on and talks about this story and how children have always recognized the validity behind it. He talks about how children constantly “pretend”. How they realize that it is easier to bring about good events through “wishing” than to bring about unhappy ones.

Then later on, in this same session, Seth talks about how, years ago, Jane had the experience of bringing about the manuscript, “The Physical Universe as Idea Construction”. Following this he also says the following:

Forgive the terminology, but you each believed in “magic,” or the sessions never would have started.




In TMA, Seth references the book NOME in Sessions, Nine, Ten, and Twelve. What he has to say in Session Twelve is particularly interesting, in that it had to do with Seth’s teachings and a “disclaimer” that Prentice-Hall their book publisher, felt that they needed on the book NOME. This disclaimer, which can be found in NOME, a page or so behind the Table of Contents, has to do with the idea of visiting the doctor’s when your ill. It can also be found in NOME, Chapter 10, S870, and it was written by Seth. 



In TMA, Session Nine, Seth says:

(Softly amused:) As a matter of fact — in case you may think sometimes that I am not fully aware of your mores — I did indeed temper many of my remarks in Mass Events on several subjects, so that the book would not be found too objectionable in the context of your times. The implications are there, but your belief systems must be allowed to mellow and change in the light of new knowledge, rather than to be booted aside with an angry foot.


In TMA, Session Ten, Seth says:

He was also convinced — as you were — that you both needed protection from the world. Many of the ideas I have given you lately were indeed in Mass Events (as Jane remarked today), but they have become alive now. In the same way, many other concepts and ideas already given will also assume a new significance and meaning, and add to the richness of your experience, because you will be open to them more than you were before — Ruburt in particular — to ideas having to do with reincarnation, life after death, other spheres of activity.



Then in TMA, Session Twelve, Seth talks about Prentice-Hall and how they typically publish conventional establishment oriented textbooks. He also tell us that under Prentice-Hall, they also have Parker Books, who are devoted to many anti-establishment oriented books, such as book about psychics. Seth then points out that Seth’s books don’t appear under the Parker heading. Instead they seem to bridge the two. Seth then goes on an talks about the issues with Prentice-Hall and their request for this “disclaimer”.  In doing this however, Seth also makes the following two interesting comments.


Our books are attempting to insert new ideas into the world as it now is, by combining the powers of the intellect and the powers of the intuitions — in other words, by closing the two ends of Prentice’s extremes.


Then, along with this, he also says the following.


(Long pause.) Now: We have been dealing with the magical approach, and let me gently remind the two of you that I said that you must be willing to change all the way from the old system of orientation to the new, if you want the new approach to work fully for you in your lives.
