Introducing the Abracadabra Moment.

You can do magic.

Just by using words.

Is this what the word ‘abracadabra’ really means.

That every day, in every moment, we’re doing our own magic with our words.

Preposterous?

I believe it’s a hidden meaning of the famous words.

In any language.

Our words create thoughts.

Thoughts have power.

Just by speaking them.

I call it the ‘Abracadabra Moment’.

We do it all the time.

Usually without thinking we’re thinking it.

It’s the secret of abracadabra.

It’s the principle of the Law of Attraction.

Say the words we wish to attract often – and words we don’t even think to attract – and that’s what we attract.

To give you an example, in every moment of our waking lives the media is bombarding us with words.

It’s those words – and all the others – that create an ‘abracadabra moment’ every day of our waking lives.

But we don’t realise it.

Even our critical words directed at our kids are creating their reality.

Even though it’s not our intention.

Sad.

Because those words all create reality.

Our own and that of our innocent kids.

Think about it.

Here are positive messages we can use to create wonderful ‘abracadabra moments’.

For ourselves and our kids.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

Was This Ghost Secretly/Legitimately Married to The Prince of Wales?

She was a ghost.

Her name was Maria Fitzherbert.

She went through a secret, but maybe legitimate, marriage to George, Prince of Wales, in 1785.

Almost 250 years ago.

The record of history says, no.

The Pope of the day said, yes.

So who are we to believe?

History or the Pope.

I believe, the latter,

Was This The Ghost of The Prince’s Mistress? Or Wife?

There has been an unsolved mystery, and closely guarded secret, from the time of George the Fourth, Prince of Wales.

Was he married to this Roman Catholic widow?

Legitimately.

And did they have children?

Legitimately.

Heirs to the throne of England.

Would this have changed the course of history?

Two hundred years or so later there have been many attempts to answer those questions.

None very convincingly.

Have I uncovered a somewhat more convincing case.

Re-opened by a ghost.

A ghost whose story I stumbled upon while living, broke, in an old caravan parked by the roadside in a country town in the Australian bush.

Which led me on an amazing adventure across five countries seeking answers to the cover-up.

Here’s my true and shocking paranormal story.

Paranormal, yes.

About a ghost, yes.

Leading to genuine historical evidence to support the yes and yes case.

I’ve written the book called ‘The Great Regency Cover-Up’.

Urban Nomad. Who is the Smith?

I am the Smith.

I am the author.

Why ‘the Smith’?

The smiths were the crafters, the metal smiths, the blacksmiths, the makers of Medieval Britain a thousand years ago.

I am the wordsmith.

I’ve written and self-published 8 autobiographical books.

Click or tap the image above to see.

This smith has lived everywhere.

Over 50 dwellings have been my home.

An ancient aboriginal corroboree ground in a wilderness area known as Fairy Hills where the creek met the river was my first memory of life.

And only a few kilometres from the Melbourne CBD.

I’ve just learned they’ve been digging up ancient aboriginal artifacts that suggest this.

I’ve lived with psychics and healers.

And sat with mediums or channels.

I’ve lived with a Reiki Master in New York.

With a Roman Catholic nurse in the north of Italy.

With a Buddhist in the UK.

My lawyer was an Atheist.

I didn’t live with him.

I ran my own freelance copywriting business. in the ’70s

In 1972 I won an award for the best television campaign of the year for a brand of meat pies and donuts.

I was a New Age hippie.

We knew about climate change 50 years ago.

A group of us started a commune on 40 acres north of Melbourne to become self-sufficient and live off the grid.

A year later we’d failed.

I helped launch Animal Liberation here.

Our patron was Peter Singer, who was then Professor of Bioethics at Harvard., and wrote the book ‘Animal Liberation’.

45 years later it’s still active today.

I was the first member of the Permaculture Association.

Which, started by two Tasmanian academics in the late ’70s, today is changing the world

Now there are over one million people certified in Permaculture in over 140 countries with more than 4,000 projects on the ground.

I went bankrupt.

An article I researched and wrote 35 years ago – about the Swiss and Italian gold miners who came to Australia in the 1850s – triggered the launch of a Swiss-Italian Festa which is still running every year today in a local spa resort town.

Their story is in my book here.

I ran a social group called ‘The Springs Whole Health Group’.

We never ran out of guest speakers on healing topics, from ley lines to chemical sensitivity, who I’d enjoy interviewing every month before our next meeting.

Then I would write an article for the local paper which they always published on page 3 or 5.

This while living frugally in an old caravan parked at the end of a street in the spa resort town.

Over 5 years I became known as the man in the van.

I studied many spiritual philosophies.

I studied Religious Experience as an off campus mature age student at Uni –

The Christian Mystics

The Hindu Bhagavad-Gita.

Australian Aboriginal Dreaning.

I practiced Yoga for 50 years from wherever I called home.

Briefly I joined the Theosophical Society in Melbourne, with headquarters in Adyar, India, with the motto ‘There is no religion higher than Truth’.

I met and befriended the Librarian of the Melbourne branch, a Wise Woman, who taught me how and where and why to search for Truth.

What is Truth?

For a time I was married and today have the pleasure of a beautiful family of 2 lovely daughters, 3 adorable granddaughters and 2 mischievous great grandsons.

I’m truly blessed

My Secret To Staying Young For Zero cost.

When I was 24 I started yoga.

This is not a post about yoga but it’s where I started to stay young.

Because they say we all start to grow old around 30.

There’s another fact we all need to know about staying young.

Most cells in our body, around 98%, are replaced every year.

Every year.

Which means we get a new body, almost, every year.

What if we could have a say in making the new cells better than the old cells.

That we could be sure we get a better body for the old one.

Every year.

I believe the theory that our thoughts can influence the cells in our body.

And that with the nature of our thoughts we can have, in effect, new bodies for old.

Which may have been what I was thinking from the age of 24.

(At the time that was not my intention).

But hey, what if yoga and the natural scientific processes of growing older, have been working to help me stay young.

Except for the price of 10 yoga classes, I’ve simply been using the natural forces of nature.

Which cost me nothing.

I’ve used other strategies throughout my life.

I’ll tell you about them in future posts.

So here’s my biggest tip for this time.

Stop telling yourself you’re getting old.

Or looking old.

Or getting wrinkles.

Keep telling yourself, and thinking, I’m young.

Or I look good.

There’s an untapped power in thought.

And it costs nothing.

Love and Peace.

How Can We Change The World For Good?

Just by thinking we can make it so.

How?

Here’s the core secret.

Just thinking can make it so.

Alone we can make it so.

With our thoughts we are creating the world.

For better or for worse.

The world doesn’t discriminate.

Think greed and that’s what we get.

Think ethically, for the greater good, can be the same.

Think Nature friendly to respect the planet on which we live.

Eco-friendly for the sake of our kids and for the future.

It’s up to us.

You and me.

“With our thoughts we make the world,” said the Buddha.

Think about it.

“Thoughts are things,” wrote Napoleon Hill in his famous bestselling book ‘Think & Grow Rich’.

The riches he wrote of were the riches of life.

I believe them.

Thinking is easy.

Or is it?

What are you thinking in every waking moment?

What are you watching?

What games are you playing?

What dramas are you watching?

And thinking about?

What if we all start to think about how we want the world to be.

Doesn’t cost anything.

We can think from home.

Keep it to ourselves.

They’re OUR thoughts.

Yet our thoughts can change the world for good.

You’re only one person, you say?

Not if lots of us think to change the world for good.

Ethically.

Sustainably.

The kind of world we want for our kids.

Those thoughts create a world thought form.

The thought form we want for our kids.

How To Talk To Yourself To Be Forever Young.

So here’s my secret to staying forever young..

Keep telling yourself so.

Surely this is the fountain of youth

Thoughts.

It’s the real secret of staying young after you stop being, er, young-ish..

Because whatever you tell your mind, it believes you.

And delivers what you ask.

What you think is what you get.

Your thoughts will create your reality.

Your mind doesn’t discriminate though.

When your thoughts tell you that you’re ill, that’s probably what you’ll get.

If you believe you’re getting old, that’s what you will be.

Old.

Or not young.

It’s what I’ve been doing for half my adult life.

I’ve been using subliminal affirmations.

Sometimes on my computer screen.

Subliminally.

Other times playing audio tracks while writing my book manuscripts or blog posts.

This is me at a nearby animal rescue farm recently.

I’m 84.

People tell me I’m not old.

And I believe it.

I still have an active mind.

But here’s the best part.

Applications tell my mind what to think.

All the ‘forever young’ thinking is done for me.

Which leaves me free to get on with my life.

Without thinking.

Without any effort.

It worked for me and I plan to stay young, inside and outside my body, forever.

Here’s the link to go to the DOWNLOAD PAGE.

Find ANTI-AGING under the HEALTH IMPROVEMENT & SUPPORT category.

Or choose another subliminal program from the 200+ in the catalogue.

There’s everything from ‘Win the Lottery’ to ‘Improve Relationships’.

I recommend these self-improvement tracks.

And all have complete disclosure of the scripts used.

Stay forever young.

Forever.

Love and Oeace.

How You Can Live Forever.

Create something today.

Create a piece that will be here after you have left this Earthly life.

Creativity is the secret of a piece of you lasting beyond your life.

Yet the creative arts are so undervalued in our society.

My deceased wife’s paintings are still to be found on the walls of my daughters’ homes today.

I expect my books about my life adventures to still be around after I’m gone.

Creativity lasts.

What about you?

Have you explored your creative potential yet?

If not, it’s never too late.

Now is the time to decide to leave a piece of yourself, your creative talent, behind.

So what is your unique creative gift to the world?

Think about it.

The Creator of this Universe is a creator.

Our Universe is a creation.

And we are all creators.

You should realise that you were born a creator and make an effort to bring out your unique creation.

Your way to be immortal.

So what is yours?

I’m an author.

My deceased wife was an artist.

And you?

Your creative talent doesn’t have to be your profession.

Your creation can be your hobby.

Maybe it’s your hidden talent.

Or your unknown passion

Write your story.

We all have one.

You are the hero of your own story.

Remember that..

George Lucas, creator of ‘Star Wars’, was a racing car driver until a serious accident in a racing car caused him to turn to the creation of ‘Star Wars’.

Creation can follow a major life change or traumatic event.

Change,

Letting go of the past.

Think about it.

Love and Peace.

How To Get Noticed At The Age Of 10.

I guess that was my first taste of success.

I was just a school kid in Grade Five.

What started as an innocent gesture turned into getting me noticed for the rest of my school life.

And beyond.

And my secret?

Used stamps.

Postage stamps off envelopes.

In those days they could have value as cancelled postage stamps.

Not any more.

Many years ago they were collected by the Save The Children Fund and resold as ‘Mission Stamps’.

The packets of used postage stamps were like a mystery bag where you’d never know what you might find.

Ahh, the good old days.

Those mystery bags were, allegedly, unsorted, and a mixture of countries and values.

Who knows what treasure one might find.

The proceeds would be added to the charity funds that, even today, help the care and suffering of innocent children around the world.

Orphaned, injured in war, suffering disease, malnourished.

Still the case, of course, and still my favoured charity.

I was collecting these used stamps from my friends and neighbours when I decided to ask the Class of Year Five at the East Ivanhoe Primary School in Melbourne, Australia, if they would also save their used stamps for me.

My teacher found out.

She got behind me.

And asked me to start a Stamp Club in activities time every week.

So suddenly the whole school knew.

I had my own school Stamp Club.

Without even trying.

My Stamp Club attracted the attention of the Principal.

Which is how, without even trying, I got noticed in Year Five.

The moral of the story is, a small act of kindness and compassion can lead to greater things.

Which it did.

In my school career.

And beyond.

I’ll tell you how next time.

Romancing Your Life & Changing the World

The Great Regency Cover-Up

The Only Way We’re Going To Change The World. Quietly.

One man knew the secret and he changed a country.

He knew the metaphysical secret to achieve this.

And his formula was so simple.

We but mirror the world.”

“This is the Divine mystery supreme,” he adds.

It’s the greatest secret in the world.

Because those five words could change the world.

His name was Mohandas Gandhi.

He’s famous for changing the world for India almost 100 years ago.

But that is only one part of a two-part idea.

The second part is up to the world – us – to make the change first.

I mean, in our small everyday lives.

It’s not a big ask.

It’s just having a more ethical way to approach our own everyday lives.

What if our thoughts create our reality.

Then why not the reality of the world.

Crazy, you say?

Ridiculous?

Unthinkable?

But think about it.

In his famous bestselling book ‘Think & Grow Rich’ author Napoleon Hill wrote as the title of the first chapter of the book ‘Thought Are Things’.

The Buddha is said to have claimed that –

“With our thoughts we make the world.”

I’ve written a new book –

Romancing Your Life & Changing The World’.

It’s a small book full of ethical peaceful wisdom.

Read about it HERE.

Think about how your thoughts can change the world.

Love and Peace.

I’ve written a knockout book to expose a cover-up.

What was the secret of the ‘Mary Ann’ all-female convict ship in the Third Fleet to Australia?

Only a ghost could have known about it.

Because the truth was covered up and the evidence destroyed.

Then 200 years later a paranormal experience, quite a few in fact, fell into my lap and off I went on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Across 5 countries.

I was in Australia and the cover-up occurred in England.

Involving the Prince of Wales.

And his mistress.

They were married in a secret ceremony.

Officially it never happened.

I’m not so sure.

Back then a liaison between a Protestant and a Catholic was dynamite.

At the time the anti-Catholic Gordon Riots were causing fear amongst the population of London.

This happened in London.

I was in Australia.

The Prince of Wales and a Catholic widow.

That would have been dynamite too.

Officially it never happened.

My paranormal clues said otherwise.

And so, sensing an amazing story, I went for it.

I responded to the clues.

Which led me to Regency England, New Zealand and, yes, right back home to Australia.

I uncovered an amazing story

The writer’s magazine Writer’s Digest called it a “blockbuster”.

And more.

You can read the awesome reviews HERE.

Or buy my blockbuster 230 page book HERE.

It’s a “fun and entertaining” book says another reviewer..

What’s The Secret To A Natural All Time High?

I know because I’ve found it.

Let me explain.

Okay, like James Bond, let’s take on the world, but in a slightly different way.

Positive thought + creativity.

That’s my own formula.

It works.

For 10 years I was working on my book ‘My Amazing Romantic Paranormal Regency Adventure’.

I was living in a treetop flat with a view to the ocean.

What more could I ask for a place to write my heart out.

A very creative life.

A very positive outlook.

Every day, once my mind was in gear and the words were starting to flow, I was on a high.

A natural, creative, positive high.

So every day for 10 years I lived the good life.

On an all time high.

Simply by being creative in a so positive and natural environment.

I know, not everyone can do that.

There were times I lived the exact opposite.

I grew up in poverty.

I’ve been bankrupt.

So I’ve known both extremes.

It’s enough that I found the positive, creative life living close to Nature.

And I used that to write.

The book is the evidence.

It’s there if you want to see for yourself the result of living an all time natural high.

If you want that kind of life now you can create it in your mind instead.

Don’t be afraid of GUIDED SELF HELP meditation.

Guided meditation to create your inner creative, positive, natural world.

Test it for yourself here (RIGHT HERE).

Love and Peace.

What Happens When You Lose Everything?

Have you recently lost everything?

It’s happening to a lot of people today.

And that’s a tragedy.

I understand because it happened to me.

But that was 30 years ago when the world was a more hopeful place to be alive.

I get it.

I get something else that most people tend to miss.

I reinvented myself.

When you have nothing, when you’ve lost everything familiar, you make decisions, choices, let go, stop forcing things, you’ve created a vacuum.

And a vacuum must be filled with something else.

Think about that.

For 10 eventful years my life was filled with something else that mostly came to me.

I’ve written a book.

It’s about a sailor with a secret.

Now I have a story, my story, with a secret (or three) that fell into my lap.

Just by letting go and going with the fkow.

If you have nothing think about opening up to filling the vacuum.

Maybe it’s a spiritual thing.

Maybe something invisible comes to the rescue.

But maybe it’s you.

Just you.

And it costs nothing.

Think about it.

Love and Peace.

What Is In This Small Old Book of Lost Royal Secrets?

I found this old limited edition small book of lost Royal secrets in my local country library.

I couldn’t believe my luck.

There it was in front of me among all the other quite ordinary library books.

But it was smaller that the rest.

This old book must have been sitting there for 40 years.

Unloved and unwanted.

The title seemed uninviting.

Who would ever have even picked it up, I thought.

‘The Chaplain: Being Some Further Account of the Days of Bobby Knopwood.’

Who was Bobby Knopwood?

I knew.

But who else would know?

Would you?

Probably not.

He was the Reverend Robert Knopwood, the first chaplain of Tasmania.

I knew from the research I’d been doing for my book and so, for me, it was a rare find.

And that’s how it turned out to be.

Here was the perfect story to introduce my historical romantic paranormal true mystery I had started.

What a find.

I’ll use an extract for my Introduction, I thought.

It’ll set the scene for the bigger picture I had to tell.

Just what I’d been looking for.

Now my book is done and you can buy it here.

In just a few paragraphs the author, Mabel Hookey, related her story of a local Doctor and his wife who were sent from England to the antipodes, Van Diemens Land (Tasmania), on condition that they never returned to England and they never divulged their secret that kept them from returning.

They were believed to receive a mysterious secret regular pension provided they stayed in the new homeland in the early days of the new penal colony.

Why?

There were rumours that he was physician to the King and she was Lady in Waiting to the Queen.

What was their secret?

Nobody ever knew.

Even the author didn’t know.

I know.

The little limited edition book has since disappeared from the library, from the shelves, the catalogue, every record.

The Ghost Who Fooled Everyone.

She was Florence’s companion for five years. That is, until Florence started at school then she mysteriously disappeared.

Seems like, she was a ghost who had fooled everyone.

To Florence she was her granny.

She was her friend and companion for the first five years of her life.

I think Granny Fitz was her only friend for those formative years.

Then she just disappeared.

Had she died?

Florence had assumed so.

But no.

Recently Florence decided to look into the family history and research her family tree.

When she tried to find her favourite granny there were her official records.

No trouble.

So she went looking for her gravestone which was located at the Melbourne Cemetery.

Success.

But there was a problem.

It seems like Granny Fitz died seventeen years before she was alive and well as Florence’s childhood companion.

Was she a ghost then?

Together Florence and I went though every other granny in her family, every relative, every family name, nut no Granny Fitz.

Was it a false name?

Was it a friend?

Was she a nanny?

To Florence it was none of the above.

I looked her straight in the eye and asked, who was Granny Fitz?

And she replied, quite annoyed with me for even asking, Granny Fitz was my companion.

So who was she?

Was the answer in her name?

Did she have a secret?

Was this really a ghost with a secret?

I think so.

I’ve set out the whole case for an explosive answer to that question.

There was a mystery here.

And I’m on to it.

See for yourself in my autobiographical book ‘Man Steps Off Planet’.

Read the rave reviews first here.

It’s a book full of twists and turns.

And a real romantic historical mystery.
