ok, lets say there are al to of ways to describe magic. but one thing I would imagine everyone can agree on is that magic stacks the deck in the adepts favor.
I like results. Results are what it is all about for me. The journey is cool too, but I gotta admit, I am goal oriented person.
Ive used body language to help out in a lot of social situations. it is ordinary stuff, just the way you carry yourself and talk and act, but it sends out serious vibes that can really stack the deck in your favor. it manipulates people's impression of you and like magic there is an intent to it.
Im interested, do others here recognize and use body language to your advantage? What are some of your experiences?
I'll give you some examples.
When I was a teenager, my parents had friends who had a daughter that was older than me. She was very beautiful and very smart. I asked her once how I could be more confident around beautiful women. What she told me changed me forever. She said, you don't need to be confident around beautiful women, just be confident all the time. Practice by talking to random strangers...she was so right....the more I talked to lots of people the more confident I became as I would look at what "went right" and what went wrong"
I didn't feel nervous around beautiful women because I talked to anyone.
Another example is that is more specific is using body language when I teach kids. I teach younger ones to hs kids and this works universally. My body language has an "open " approach, I am square to the audience. At a certain point, if I start to lose attention, but just before it turns into "breaking a rule" I'll retreat a bit and I'll "close" my body a bit; I'll turn my shoulder and pull back a bit like im hiding something. Very subtle but it never fails...since it looks a little like im hiding something, I get the attention back without having to stop and enforce a rule. works about 90% of the time without fail.
What do you guys thing? Im interested if you work this kind of mundane magic and what your experiences might be?
