The Illusionist (Full Screen Edition)
The Illusionist (Full Screen Edition)
DVD ~ Edward Norton
Price: $3.99
153 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars My Husband’s Film Collection, September 2, 2015
The Illusionist film is a movie that my husband first introduced me to around 2006/2007 when we were living in Florida and it was great to watch the Illusionist together again this week. The Illusionist features a movie trailer to Gray Matters and the movie itself is a deep and complicated history between the characters of Duchess Sophie Von Teschen (Jessica Biel) and Eisenheim The Illusionist (Edward Norton). Duchess Sophie Von Teschen is set to marry the emotionally cold but intellectually gifted Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). I do completely accept that Sewell was just putting his best in the role, it was just that I was extremely shocked by how his Prince Leopold character is required to treat Eisenheim’s character and that of his wife Sophie so abrasively just because he can. Chief Inspector Walter Uhl (Paul Giamatti) is Crown Prince Leopold’s right hand man who is required to start spying on Eisenheim after a witness tattles on Eisenheim and Duchess Sophie immediately after they are spotted simply just talking in a carriage together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Financial Slant to the Course of Miracle Teachings, September 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I recently decided that I was going to make the best of my remaining time of living in the Washington D.C. area by keeping the job I already currently have and work a second job (once again I intend to stay in the area for the rest of this year, but I now prefer to publicly keep quiet on when I know that I must relocate). However, I recently found out that one of the jobs I interviewed for in the D.C. area(as a second job opportunity) went to another candidate because they had greater flexibility in the days and hours that they would be available for. I’m at least grateful to have found out the reason. However, I’m also grateful that this book Sacred Success; A Course in Financial Miracles by Barbara Stanny is available to help me take a look at my beliefs around ways of creating greater income. The following are some of the pearls of information contained in this book (I’m guessing that the positive image on the book has to do with believing and knowing that the world is your oyster)
Information on some of the clients that the author has worked with such as a non-profit director and an executive coach (pgs, 44 and 45).
An interview the author recalled reading about in the Wall Street Journal (pg. 68).
Her experience working with an advertising executive from a retreat (pg. 122)
Pgs. 151-152-She shares a triangle diagram as it relates to money, affluence, and discussion of various levels involving money (i.e. the first level of establishing a six month emergency fund, the second level of conservative stocks and bonds etc.)
Welcoming the Warrior and the author’s descriptions on what a warrior means(pg. 196).
I admit that just the Warrior archetype alone may take me some time to ponder on because I’m still trying to at least retrieve and bring on the self-confident aspect of my eighth grade self who made class valedictorian and was voted most likely to succeed (it was out of a class of at least 389 other students and I actually believed in my own intellectual brilliance and the unlimited possibilities for my bright future).

Voyage to Curiosity’s Father (Exploring the Afterlife Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Afterlife Expeditions, September 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Voyage to Curiosity’s Father (Exploring The Afterlife Series) by Bruce Moen touches on so many deep and complicated aspects of the spiritual afterlife. The following is only a sampler of what is available in this gripping book;
Pg, 26+27;The “planning center” orchestrates events for people who express their intents. However, it is important that a person also request that the intent is for the greatest benefit of all or else they may get something they want with unexpected of unwanted effects.
I admit that I forgot the page where the author mentioned that him and his exploration assistant Denise ran into someone during their astral travels that physically resembled a cross between Jody Foster and Helen Hunt. However, on page 95 the author describes the exploration technique that him and Denise used is akin to the news reporting techniques of Peter Jennings and Diane Sawyer.

Chapter 15 Max’s Hell Revisited; This chapter is extremely frightening, but I understand that the author was only trying to come from what he felt was truth and what he and Denise saw. The chapter was apparently named after a psychotherapist named Max who apparently took a tragic satisfaction in the emotional suffering of his patients. Spirits in this realm work their way out of these worlds either through the strong bond of love and expressing their love as a couple. Pages 120 and 121 mention how they would move to countrysides of these worlds for greater protection and to make friends with other spirits who are trying to move away from playing the games. Chapter 16 (starts on page 1250Fires of Hell go into details on how many of the spirits from the former lower worlds can work their way up and graduate by helping other lost souls from various hells. As per the author, the coverage in chapter 15 might make for a good Hollywood movie. It also makes me wonder just out of curiosity if the upcoming tv series Angel From Hell and the upcoming movie Hell & Back are inspired by ideas from books such as this and other afterlife books (although I do understand that they are most likely marketed and/or publicized as fictional type of scripts). Anyhow, once the spirits movie up from the lower realms they are usually allowed a choice to either reincarnate back on earth and to live among spirits that previously lived among various lower worlds (belief system hells) and souls who previously lived in higher realms of light (various worlds that we know as heavens). The major caveats are that their length of earth lifetimes are not guaranteed and they have to be careful as to what influences are followed in order to move back up to residing in higher realms for their next afterlife. Chapter 19 Satan mentions the idea that the concept of Satan is actually taken from the most hardened spirits of the lower worlds who are adept at running the most cruel games. Sometimes these leaders of the dark worlds are able to be saved, other times they are not. In the times they are not, they are left to become just energy mists disappearing into a black hole. There is so much more to share about these chapters, but I intuitively feel guided to avoid doing so out of a feeling of heaviness I’m getting just writing about it. The fact that even the author himself had to get his spirit guide White Bear to accompany him gives a gentle warning to the reader on the subject matter of the chapters I just mentioned.
On a more upbeat note, the author also mentions about his meetings with one of his late mentors Robert Monroe, founder of the Monroe Institute. There is also mention of the land of angels and the Aperture. He also mentions about a book called the Diary of Henry After Death. I just wish that there were more physical details described as to what some of the higher worlds look like (there are many good authors to choose from for physical details of heavenly worlds, yet I would probably recommend Jurgen Ziewe or Wlliam Buhlman for novices to books on the physical details of heavenly worlds). Aside from that caveat, Voyage to Curiosity’s Father by Bruce Moen is still a riveting book to read and it actually unexpectedly helped me understand a little further the mechanics behind the Afterlife and why some souls willingly reincarnate into challenging lives of little initial emotional and/or spiritual support. Additionally, this author’s works is great for those who are in the process of bridging the gap between safely expressing their authentic selves while releasing external judgements about one’s perceived intellectual brilliance and/or potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cereal Section From My Job, September 2, 2015
This 10.9 ounce box of Hershey’s CookiesnCreme cereal definitely tastes as if corn puffs were simply dipped in melted hershey’s square dark and white chocolate candies. Obviously, I understand that this cereal was most likely processed completely different from the way I describe. In summary, the experience of eating chocolate candy in cereal form is obviously the best way I can summarize having a bowl of Hershey’s CookiesnCreme with milk.
