‘Into the Magic Shop’ Part 1

WASHINGTON, December 14, 2017: In my past few articles, I have shared with you the practices from the book, “Into the Magic Shop” by Dr. James Doty, a successful author, neurosurgeon, businessman, and family man. His book has had a profound effect on my life. I believe the exercises he shares in the book are vital to anyone’s wellbeing either at home, at the workplace or both. Dr. Doty concludes his ideas by addressing his fourth and final practice, Clarifying Your Intent:

  1. Clarifying Your Intent. Dust jacket, Dr. Jim Doty’s “Into the Magic Shop.”

    Sit in a quiet room and close your eyes.

  2. Think of a goal or something you wish to accomplish. It does not matter that the details of the vision are not fully formed. It is important that such a goal or vision is one that does not involve harm to another or bad intent. While this technique could help you accomplish such a goal, it will ultimately result in pain and suffering to yourself and make you unhappy.
  3. Relax your body completely (Practice #1)
  4. Once relaxed, focus on your breathing and try to empty your mind completely of all thoughts.
  5. When thoughts arise, guide your attention back to your breath.
