#Fairies, #Myths, & #Magic Author Spotlight Guest Post: “Magic is Absolute,” by Tina Frisco

Welcome! Happy Yule, Christmas, Hanukkah, & Kwanza.

My special guest today is my dear friend, Tina Frisco. You know how you meet someone online and as you get to know them you feel like you’ve known them in real life? That’s how it is for Tina and me. I love her philosophical discussions, and her spiritual advice is the best. I recently read her book, Plateau: Beyond the Trees. You can read my review HERE. I’ve recently grabbed a copy of her new book, Vampyrie. It promises to be an interesting read.

Author, Tina Frisco

“Tina Frisco is an author, singer-songwriter, RN, activist, and student of shamanism. Born in Pennsylvania USA, she attended nursing school in New York and lives in California. She began writing as a young child and received her first guitar at age 14, which launched her passion for music and songwriting. She has performed publicly in many different venues. Her publishing history includes book reviews; essays; articles in the field of medicine; her début novel, PLATEAU; her children’s book, GABBY AND THE QUADS; and her latest novel, VAMPYRIE. She enjoys writing, reading, music, dancing, arts, and crafts, exploring nature, and frequently getting lost in working crossword puzzles.

When all the December 21st, 2012 doomsday documentaries hit the screen, Tina was compelled to write a novel of hope. Thus PLATEAU: Beyond the Trees, Beyond 2012 was born. Is there any hope for humankind? Will love prevail over fear? A young tribal female is unaware she holds the answers to these questions. Her mettle is tested by the cosmic forces that shaped her destiny. She comes face-to-face with fear in a battle that would shrink the will of the most daring warrior. The fate of all beings in the Universe depends on her defeating the bloodthirsty gondrah and unlocking the mystery of the Great Mosaic of Life.

Tina was inspired to write GABBY AND THE QUADS when her niece had quadruplets. A child’s moral compass develops early, and she wanted to write a book that was ethically as well as traditionally educational. Gabby is an only child who is about to become a big sister to quadruplets! How will she handle this? Her parents decide on a unique approach to introduce her to and help her accept this awesome experience. Follow Gabby as she learns all about babies and the joy of loving.

Tina has always been fascinated by the myth of the vampire and often wondered if the phenomenon actually could exist. Her background in medicine led me to speculate about how this might have a basis in reality. If rooted in science, how might this myth come to life? The most likely answer would be as a physical disorder or disease. All this musing gave rise to her latest novel, VAMPYRIE: Origin of the Vampire. What if vampires were not the undead, but rather the dying? What if there were two factions among vampires: the sustained and the unsustainable? And what if those factions were at war with one another over the life of a young woman who promised them a future? VAMPYRIE brings the myth of the vampire into the realm of possibility.”

Now that you’ve met Tina feel free to grab a cup of coffee or tea and get comfortable to read her feature. Today, Tina shares her thoughts about magic and the possibilities that exist for all of us. ❤

“Magic Is Absolute”

When I was a small child, I saw magic everywhere – lights around beings, angels floating atop clouds, tiny winged entities riding the suns illuminating rays. All the Earth was alive, and she spoke to me. I would share this with my parents, and their response was always the same: “Oh, you’re just seeing things.” Of course, I was seeing things! I did not know their perception of life was different from mine. With a wave of the hand, they dismissed my reality. I thought I was defective and began to shut down.

I do not resent my parents’ behavior. They did their best with the knowledge they had. Yet over time and repeated denials, I too dismissed my experience as faulty and unreliable. Believing I was flawed, my ability to see the inherent magic in life disappeared. I became a realist.

In my early thirties, I apprenticed to a medicine woman, and my life began to change once again. Deep within me, I knew that all I had seen and heard as a child was not only valid but also undeniable.

We tend to think that ordinary life is reality, a belief reinforced by unmitigated “reason.” We are taught to look no further than what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. We are not encouraged to scrutinize beyond our five senses. This is unfortunate because life is so much more than the realm of the third dimension. String theory had all but proved the existence of dimensions beyond spacetime.

We can explore other planes of existence through practices such as meditation and astral travel. Most of us have had out-of-body experiences; but if they were fleeting or frightening or elusive, we probably discounted them. Yet, they are a vehicle by which to navigate the myriad realms many would call magical, and many more would deny.

I see magic as absolute because it is nonrelative and unquantifiable. It is the infinite cosmos from which our third-dimensional reality is conceived.

Taught to fear what we do not understand – what we cannot see with our physical eyes or touch with our physical hands – we confine our thinking and preclude limitless possibility. As Hamlet said, “Thinking makes it so.” Within our finite view of existence, we refer to the supernatural as magic, when it is merely beyond our understanding.

The good news is: We do not have to comprehend something to accept it as being possible. Once we open our minds to the infinite, magic takes the helm and life becomes an exquisite journey ©

Before attempting astral projection, it is important to know how to protect ourselves while out-of-body. The first article below explains the dangers but also has useful tips for keeping our bodies safe. The second article is a step-by-step guide.

  1. Great post. In reference to astral projection: Check out Robert Monroe. And as to String Theory, the simple explanation is it all comes down to vibrations. Matter from the astral plane slows down its vibration to manifest in the physical. But it’s still vibrating pretty damn fast. Something like 300 million times a second. The slower the vibration, the denser the material. Hence, lead and gold vs soap bubbles. Please don’t ask me what the vibration rate is for the cells in the human body. I don’t know everything. Just almost everything.
    Thanks for a stimulating post, Tina and Colleen.

    1. I like your explanation of string theory. I, too use the “vibrations” theory in my writing. I know those other dimensions are out there and they manifest through vibration. It’s left to those of us that can “feel” the vibrations to write about them. Are you also empathic, Andrew? I think I learn something new from Tina every time she shares her wisdom. All I can do is be a sponge – soaking up the knowledge. ❤

    1. Jacqui, I’m with you. I would love for Tina to talk about those aspects of her life much more. Your book sounds amazing. I have ventured my characters into a paganism of sorts in my second book, too. I think we must all me on the same path. ❤

    2. It is fascinating work, Jacqui, although grueling at times. Peeling away layers from the facade we’re addicted to is, for the most part, no easy task; but worth every ounce of energy invested. There are many shamans worldwide making themselves available to aid our transition into the new age. Most likely there’s one near you. Looking forward to your new book! ❤

  2. Brilliant Post Colleen and Tina. When people have had experiences outside my own range (so far) I always think of a colour blind man, who cannot differentiate between red and green. Just cause he can”t see it does not mean it does not exist. Only a fool would deny something simply because they haven’t experienced it for themselves! Sending wishes and greetings to you both over the Holiday and in the coming year. PXX

  3. Fabulous to see a fellow Sis here today, my good friend Tina. Tina certainly holds a wisdom herself that many of us can learn from. I’m especially interested in the ‘string theory’ and astral travel, so thanks for the links T. I’m checking it out! Oh ya, and sharing!!! ❤ ❤ Hugs sisters!

  4. Thank you for having Tina with her wonderful post, Colleen. Tina, I had many childhood experiences but though they were normal and most were scary–like the blackness surrounding my bed in the attic, which I thought was Satan. Lots of deja vu but when I died several times during heart surgery, that’s when I developed ‘knowing’ things I could not know, a few out of body experiences where scared me to death–no strings attached lol so I didn’t go far. I have a problem though. When automatic writing to my deceased daughter, something evil tried to answer so I quickly stopped and again in a magical meditation garden I made in my mind, was also ruined by an evil raven so I had to leave my garden too.So I am afraid to use any of the things I have because i cannot seem to ground myself from letting in a horde of demons. Some day we must talk of this if you’d like.I loved your post.

    1. Thank you for sharing this, Micki. My shaman teacher taught me to place a circle of Divine Love and Protection around myself when venturing, whether it be beyond the physical realm or within it. I do this before attempting any spiritual work, as well as (for example) when simply getting in my car to drive somewhere. I visualize the circle in soft pink and green hues ~ pink for love; green for health and safety. These are the words I say: “I place a circle of Divine Love and Protection around me (and you can add anyone or anything else, e.g., your car). Angels, guard me. Grandmothers, keep me safe from harm.” Then I ground myself by extending the cord from my spine down into Mother Earth, and visualize it as rooted. Perhaps these techniques will work for you. I’d be happy to talk with you about this. Message me on Facebook, and we’ll take it from there. Happy Holidays, my friend ❤

  5. Lovely post and so wonderful to see the connections between writers who have never met in person. Isn’t it great how we can connect online and feel like we are life long friends? I’m just getting to know Tina, and can see she is special indeed. I share her background as a registered nurse and am fascinated with the path she has taken.

    1. I agree with you. I get to know many writers through their writings. The connections are all there. Don’t you feel like people share their hearts when they write? We’re taught to hide feelings when communicating verbally. But, through writing – WOW! We get to know them in an entirely different way. Tina is a special lady, and I can tell you are too. Maybe we recognize ourselves through others. I think for women that is true. We recognize our tribe. 😉 ❤

    2. What a lovely comment, Molly. Friends are friends, regardless of how we connect. Our souls recognize one another; and as Colleen said, we see ourselves in the reflection of others. I’m so happy to be a member of your and Colleen’s tribe. Hugs, sister ❤

  6. This post is so freeing, Tina, and mirrors my own internal perspective of the mystery of everything. I love the line, “We do not have to comprehend something to accept it as being possible.” It seems the epitome of arrogance to assume that our puny brains know everything there is to be known. How wonderful to be able to let go of having to have all the answers and just float in the magic of possibility. Thanks, Colleen, for hosting Tina and for my smile. 😀

  7. Interesting post, Tina and Colleen. There is definitely more to the universe than we understand through traditional avenues. I think the wisdom with which young children enter the world is often shut down in the way you describe, Tina. Sadly though, I don’t think they are allowed to do enough exploring through the senses either and and told to believe “because I say so”. While I can’t say I have had any out of body experiences, I have met many who describe different ways of experiencing and have an open mind to what the possibilities might be. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Most welcome, Norah. It is sad that we caution children about, and often warn against things we don’t understand. Keeping your mind and heart open is one of the many qualities that makes you such an outstanding teacher ❤

  8. I am so fascinated by this post and the discussion…Tina has sprinkled magic all around with her words, which seem to be floating around. I appreciate your grit, dear friend, despite those shrugs by people around us who discourage out of the box thinking! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
