Do you have soul?

Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkinson:

“A writer in the “early seventies” of the last century said: ”All of us emit a sphere, aura, or halo, impregnated with the very essence of ourselves; sensitive knows it; so do our dogs and other pets; so does a hungry lion or tiger; aye, even flies, snakes and the insects, as we know to our cost. Some of us are magnetic – others not. Some of us are warm, attractive, love inspiring and friendship making, while others are cold, intellectual, thoughtful, reasoning, but not magnetic.

Let a learned man of the latter type address an audience and it will soon tire of his intellectual discourse, and will manifest symptoms of drowsiness. He talks at them, but not into them – he makes them think, not feel, which is most tiresome to the majority of persons, and few speakers succeed who attempt to merely make people think – they want to be made to feel. People will pay liberally to be made to feel or laugh, while they will begrudge a dime for instruction or talk that will make them think.

Pitted against a learned man of the type mentioned above, let there be a half-educated, but very loving, ripe and mellow man, with but nine-tenths of the logic and erudition of the first man, yet such a man carries along his crowd with perfect ease, and everybody is wide-awake, treasuring up every good thing that falls from his lips. The reasons are palpable and plain. It is heart against head; soul against logic; and is bound to win every time.

If you will notice the man and woman who are considered the most “magnetic,” you will find that almost invariably they are people who have what is called “soul” about them – that is, they manifest and induce “feeling,” or emotion. They manifest traits of character and nature similar to that manifested by actors and
actresses. They throw out a part of themselves, which seems to affect those coming in contact with them. Notice a non-magnetic actor, and you will see that although he may be letter perfect in his part, and may have acquired the proper mannerisms, gestures and other technical parts of his art, still he lacks a “certain something,” and that something may be seen to be the ability to communicate “feeling”.

Now, those who are in the secret know full well that many of the successful actors, who seem to burn with passion, feeling and emotion on the stage, really feel but little of these qualities while acting – they are like phonographs, giving off sounds that have been registered in them. But if you will investigate still further, you will see that in studying their parts and practicing the same privately, these people induced a stimulated emotion, such as the part called for, and held it firmly in their minds, accompanying it with the appropriate gestures, etc., until it became firmly “set” there – impressed upon the tablets of the mentality as the record of a phonograph is likewise impressed upon the wax.

Then, when afterward they played the part, the outward semblance of the feelings, with the motions, gestures, emphasis, etc. , reproduced itself and impressed the audience. It is said that if an actor allows himself to be actually carried away with his part so that he feels the same keenly, the result will not be advantageous, for he is overcome with the feeling and its effect is upon himself rather than upon his audience.

The best result is said to be obtained when one has first experienced and felt the emotion, and then afterward reproduces it in the manner above stated, without allowing it to control him.”

what are you making people feel?

You may do thousands of exercises a day or read every book about magnetism, but the most critical aspect is always: what do you make people feel?

This is what you should keep your focus on. Are you making others feel good?

If you aren’t, you need to start there. If you are repulsing people (making others feel bad), you must understand the cause.

The exercises are not a magic pill.

The exercises are only a tool to increase your sensitivity to the energy you are projecting (and that others are projecting) and start to change what you project – such as the work of Inner Power and Will and other energy exercises.

But the most crucial part is the feeling good aspect.

This is hard to do when you are monotonous, dull, depressed, angry, etc. You only need to recall situations where you’ve been in the presence of someone like that.

Naturally, we all have swinging moods. Sometimes we’re feeling great; other times, we are feeling bad. That’s expected and normal.

But magnetism can be considered an average of those times. If you are constantly depressed, your magnetism will also be like that, even when you’re feeling better. If you are a very enthusiastic person, your magnetism will reflect that even when you are feeling down.

Your magnetism can also be modulated to different feelings. Such as with sexual magnetism, you make people feel sexual when in your presence. You need to know it, enjoy it and develop it within yourself before making others feel that way.

Many students think of magnetism as a magic pill, but it’s as simple as making others feel good (or sexual) with your presence.

Of course, if you don’t feel good about yourself, it’s a lot harder to make others feel good about you. If you are not already enthusiastic with good feelings, how can you expect others to be?

It would help if you always kept this aspect in mind. The goal of magnetism is to make others feel good in your presence.

A change in your relationships

As your magnetism changes with the training, it’s perfectly normal that people around you feel it.

And it has certain effects, such as:

– You can fall out with old-time friends

– You can make new friends

– Become closer with other friends that you weren’t close before

– Old romantic relationships end, and new ones begin

This is all related to the energy changes you experience.

Maybe some of your old friends can get used to your new energy and accept it. But more often than not, things change in the old relationships.

It’s easy to understand why. Your friends had a certain feeling when they were around you. But, when your magnetism changes, their feeling is now different.

(and naturally, the same happens with you)

Whether they like (and accept) the new feeling it’s not something you can predict. Sometimes the biggest surprises can happen.

You may ask: “but won’t they be happy with my success?”

This is a challenging question.

It’s usually not a matter of being happy with your success (although it can be). More often than not, it’s simply a matter of feeling something different that they are not used to.

This is what magnetism does: it changes what people around you feel when they are in your presence. We aim at a good change, but even this good change can shock those who are used to something different.

But this is something you’ll need to handle as it happens. Most likely, you don’t want to stay in the same situation as you are in, and you want a change.

The warning is that this change – this hopefully positive change – can have unpredictable consequences. They may look bad in the short term but will look much better in the long term as you develop a new life with people around you that flow with your new energy.
