Uncover the mysteries at work in your daily life, and use them to your advantage!
As the first book in the series, Part One discusses the more versatile energies in everyday life. These energies can become a source of tools the modern magic worker can use anytime, anywhere, for any purpose imaginable.
Gone are the days when metaphysical phenomena were limited to a select group, or to specific scenarios of ritualized dogma. Now you can access these ancient powers with whatever technology is at your disposal - and build your very own arsenal against the entropy of the Universe!
What Can This Book Do?
With a little help, you can start sensing these unseen energies around you, affecting your life (for better or worse!). Unchecked, these energies create a chaotic dance through your body, mind, and soul, and can have many different effects. They can change moods, perceptions, or even charge situations and objects you interact with.
Every moment, these energies can be recognized and manipulated in your favor. One of my favorite tools explained in the book is music - using the emotional aura of songs and sounds to raise energy and charge people and objects with their hidden qualities.

The book can help you spot the abundant tools like this available in your own life, no matter what your personal circumstances may be. Rich or poor, atheist or devout, the concepts within Everyday Energy can be used to discover the hidden potential of everyday activities and resources at your disposal.
How Does It Work?
As you read through Everyday Energy, you will start to shift your perspective to analyze the emotional energy flowing around you. Each chapter contains an exercise to get you started, along with other examples to create your own from.
The underlying principles, however, can be either psychological or quantum in nature. While most effects of these unseen energies can be explained via psychology, it is my personal belief there is also a quantum quality underneath the psychological explanations. However, the only measurable effect currently available involves the affects of the mind.
This is why these tools aren't limited to a certain spirituality or set of beliefs. While there certainly is room for religious or occult interpretations, the tools and tactics outlined in Everyday Energy only require a basic awareness of emotions in general.
Affecting The Self
Powerful change comes from within, adapting the internal mindset (and spiritual energies connected with beliefs and emotions) to match desired circumstances. This practice has many interpretations (from wishful thinking to 'fake it 'till you make it'), but is based on one crucial truth: your view of the world alters how you interact with it.
However, many ignore the subconscious elements that invariably factor into a person's perspective. A song on the radio, a busy street, or cluttered surroundings have a powerful yet easily ignored effect on your perception. This is the energy you can begin to sense for yourself, and analyze what these underappreciated elements evoke within you. In developing this awareness, you will begin to understand how these threads can tangle you or set you free.
An Affect On Others
In the same way you can be affected by seemingly minor aspects of life, so too can everyone else. We are all familiar with how the right song can put a loved one "in the mood," or trigger deep feelings from times past. However, the more subtle effects are harder to judge in others - often, they keep those responses inside, if they even acknowledge them for themselves.
Using these tactics to affect others is tricky, and will require at least some development of empathy (or enough mastery of empathic ability to separate external emotions). While many spells and other magic works tend to warn away from using on others, Everyday Energy encourages it to some degree. We all have an affect on our surroundings, for better or worse; using these tools on others will help you better understand what affects others that you have some control over.
The Universe has a way of balancing these effects without a need for disclaimers or warnings. If you are inherently bad, the warnings won't matter to you anyway; if you're inherently good, it's likely you already worry about negatively affecting others. Either way, the laws of the Universe (and basic social interactions) will guide via reward and punishment as it always has.
Living objects, such as plants or pets (though not really objects, they aren't able to communicate directly any emotions they may have), and non-living objects are affected by this web as well. Certain music can inspire growth in plants or stress out cats and dogs. Putting a stone near a busy road can collect the energy in the same way as common Wiccan techniques (like burying items near trees, for instance).
These objects, living and otherwise, have an effect on the world as well. Your pet's emotional energy can affect you in subtle (but powerful) ways. Imagine the cat that gets stressed out and wiggles more than usual when you try to pick it up, or the dog that is so anxious it urinates on the floor. Those are only the most obvious effects; they can be unable to express many other, less urgent feelings that add to the emotional aura of your home.
Developing this new appreciation of subtle forces around you will take time, but isn't guaranteed to grow without conscious effort. Everyday Energy is the first of many books in the Metaphysiology Presents series designed to walk you through this process for yourself. The book is available for preorder on Amazon until its final release on March 28, 2019.
