I’ve created this site with great enthusiasm and a sense of soaring possibilities. I firmly believe that timeless truths and wisdom are available today to help us understand ourselves and our capabilities – and find out how limitless and truly magical and mystical we are. There ARE amazing truths and things to learn that are not boring, dull, yawn-inducing, and irrelevant to your life!
However, this site is not about mysticism or esoteric spiritual practices or rituals. It is about finding out useful and practical things that can help you bring about new awareness and real change in your own life. It’s intended to introduce you to a broader, fuller meaning of spirituality that has relevance to you, very personally. And it is also about high-flying ideas that I hope will inspire you and make your spirits soar.
In the interests of dispelling confusion, I may also from time to time shine a bright light upon and debunk certain myths being perpetrated in the various media.
I started Magical Mystical You to help others realize and begin to understand their spiritual nature and true potential. I am not any kind of guru. However, I have gained so much understanding and my life has changed so amazingly through my own many-decades-long study of the works of L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of the Church of Scientology, that I have been inspired to share and explore these ideas and my experiences and new understandings with you. A true realization about yourself or a truth about life can open up so many possibilities – even those you hardly dared dream of before.
I will also share some incredible resources for exploring further both in my blog articles and personal stories, and on the “References” page. My intention is to show you, and make it fully real to you, that you and your life can change dramatically and wonderfully – often in a very short span of time.
Professionally I am a scenic photographer with my online galleries, Daveda Lamont Photographic Art, located at https://daveda-lamont.pixels.com/galleries.html. A small slideshow of some of my photos is displayed in the right sidebar of this website. If you click on it, it will take you to my photo art collections on Fine Art America.com – which is connected to my own website listed above so that you can see all my work in either place and make purchases on both websites.
I am also an author of both nonfiction and fiction. My debut novella, The Way of the Eagle: An Early California Journey of Awakening, was published in May 2011. In November, 2011 it was named a Finalist in Visionary Fiction in The USA “Best Books 2011” 8th Annual Awards sponsored by USA Book News & JPX Media Group. In May 2012 The Way of the Eagle was a Silver Medal-winning Finalist in the Novella category of the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. And before that it was honored as a Cross-Genre Finalist in the 2012 National Indie Excellence Awards.
One of my nonfiction books, co-authored with Kirk Mango, Becoming a True Champion: Achieving Athletic Excellence from the Inside Out, was published in May 2012 and is a must-read for any aspiring athlete who wants to know how to attain lasting excellence in sports, with principles that extend to every aspect of life and career. My second nonfiction book, co-authored with Roger and Kathy Maxwell, is Taking Charge of Your Stroke Recovery: A Personal Recovery Workbook, or How to Pick Up When Rehab Ends, Complete Your Recovery and Be Better than You Ever Were Before!
I currently live in Westchester County, north of New York City. We have been incredibly fortunate that our 12th floor apartment looks out over the great Hudson River and the picturesque wooded New Jersey Palisade cliffs on the other (west) side of the river. The Hudson is about a mile wide here and provides us with beauty and inspiration as it changes dramatically from day to day, season to season. We see all kinds of ships and boats, as well as huge oceangoing cargo ships and tugboat-driven barges as they travel up and down the river.
