I’m going to tell you the story of my journey. I’ve had a hard time telling it in the past because it sounds like a science fiction movie, but it’s all true. I will try to keep the details light because I know it’s a lot of information for most people and many of my experiences were quite intense.
I never imagined that I would study metaphysics. I am a scientist with 15+ years of research experience. While most of my research was in the field of cardiology, I did spend a few years doing some immuno-oncology research. I was a strong believer in statistical data, science and western medicine. If you couldn’t show me the data to back up what you were saying and it didn’t fit into the plausible section of my “science box”, I would reject it. Metaphysics and spirituality had no place in my “science box”.
7 Ways to Have a Magickal Life
By Leah Isla Dela Cruz
What does it mean to have a magickal life? I thought I was living a fabulous life. It seemed like the quintessential life. I was making a six-figure salary at a Fortune 500 corporation, received annual bonuses, owned a beautiful home, traveled the world, drove a luxury sedan, and had a loving husband. Life was great! In the material world I was successful. Yet, I felt like something was missing. I had recently turned 40 years old and I was feeling the burnout from being in the fast lane for years. I began to wonder how long I could sustain this pace. The stress and burden was taking a toll on me mentally and physically. In order to cope, I frequently drank, smoked weed (it was finally legal in California), and booked weekly massages. I naively thought “zen” was equivalent to the spa.
I confided my feelings of restlessness and emptiness with a close friend who is a strong, independent woman with a successful career. She looked like she was thriving, full of energy and youthful inside and outside. I asked her what her secret was. Instead of telling me, she introduced me to a new path.
Erin Shares Her Experience with the Modern Mystery School Path:
I love what I get to do as a mission and am most grateful for the Modern Mystery School International which I have the honor of representing. I was very uncomfortable in the worst way until I found the tools and teachings and my desire is to help others find their way out of the suffering I also felt. I can relate if you feel like you don’t fit in here! (On Earth) As a very sensitive soul it has been quite harsh for me until I found a way to protect myself energetically!
I went from an insecure person who had a hard time being around others because my internal reflection of self-loathing was too uncomfortable to someone who now can enjoy and love being around others because there are less negative reflections from my internal self. I am still a work in progress!
I had a hard time being in front of people now I teach large groups. I used to have a fake smile plastered on my face, now I have many different expressions based on the moment, not the past! I also used to be a ball of anger and felt helpless to change the world and now I have a way, through the Modern Mystery School to feel at cause, like I can make a difference and I am with the large community I serve!
People get results- they get a Life Activation then Initiated and then before I know it they decide to learn how to do the Life Activation themselves! That is the best testimonial because why go through the effort to continue if nothing happened?
I am grateful for all my Teachers, peers, deep friendships I have developed and Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon Founder Gudni Gudnasonand Ipsissimus Hideto Nakagome for holding the structure so this work flows. I have learned so much from each of these men and their tireless service, sacrifice, love, dedication and kindness!
Thank you also the Goddess Council of 12 Women for also supporting this structure and modeling your unique expression of the Goddess!
This path is tough because there is accountability- no one is seen as a victim and it is your choice to continue at your own pace. No one ever pressed my keyboard to sign me up for a class or take a flight- I have had to self enroll. Of course! That is normal! This is not the only path to God there are many and you can chose what is right for you ❤️
It is not an easy path- but the more challenging paths are always most interesting because when you get to the view you can really own it- YOU earned it- no one did it for you!
In 2017, I was initiated into the Lineage of King Salomon. I felt a strong desire with-in me to shift my focus in our world to spend my time on helping improve our foundation as a human family. My route to to finding the Modern Mystery School International was mostly internal guidance which made very little logical sense at the time; especially to my technical thinking modality. And yet when I began my studies of mystery tradition the concepts were both foreign while seemingly of a tacit nature. It was a very odd experience at first to hold such a dissonance; so much so that I studied and used the given tools with apprehension (and yet Erin Wallace kept her patience and heart wide open; even with my early skeptical and grumpy nature ❤ ).
I recall this one experience, after being given the Life Activation protocol, I was in tears for 2 hours on a 5 hour flight at the sheer realization and beauty of what it means for each individual on our planet.
At fundamental level, Modern Mystery School has taught and continues to teach me methods to get out of my own way thus allowing my true nature to come forth. Too much to list all yet part of this includes ways to discipline my mind, model + refine my sense experience, and distinguish my interpretation of experience separately from the past (whether good or bad). It is, indeed, hard work yet the sense of meaning found after this initial polishing of my lens is profound.
Every conversation, be it during study of Kabbalah with Dr. Theresa Bullard and Erin Wallace, a session with Aleksandra Ceho, or training with Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon has gifted me an insights to shed another layer of nonsense blocking me from Joy. (and this is just a few of the many individual’s focused on serving humanity’s growth)
The work is, indeed, so difficult that each of us that decides to self-examine meets with tons of resistance. Resistance that shows in many-many-many and often subtle ways. Sometimes in the form of that voice in your head urging to view an event as a victim or even making a story about ‘you v/s them’. It’s present; everywhere and yet working with the Lineage by using the handed down proven tools and techniques helps us slice directly through this noise and focus on doing work that really matters to your soul.
