About Us | Our Story
Magickal Bear® began in a hot tub in January 2021. Founders Tony and Kristen Laidig were relaxing, minding their own business enjoying the hot, steamy bubbles when a lightning-bolt of an idea illuminated their space and BOOM! Magickal Bear was born. (Thank goodness it wasn't real lightning... and for anyone wondering, this is why we don't take vacations.)
As the vision for Magickal Bear has since then shifted and grown, more clarity has been revealed to us from the "Powers that Be" as to Magickal Bear's mission, purpose, and impact. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this ancient yet impeccably relevant story...
THE CURRENT STATE AND HOPE FOR HUMANITY
By learning to "see" and "hear" differently apart from the noise of life's distractions and inner self-doubt, we can once again embrace divine, universal secrets and truths hidden in plain sight in the natural world around us... in ancient wisdom, practices, and spiritual disciplines... and most importantly, within ourselves.
Ancient wisdom contains the secrets gleaned from synergistic cooperative learning between species, including animals, plants, and minerals. This path is currently out of balance and as a result, 99% of the secrets once known are now hidden or lost... so as not to be exploited by those who would mean to use them to harm others. What we embrace today is little more than the result of whispers shared over millennia.
Consider this... Every atom is its own self-contained universe that has its own unique consciousness as a living expression. These atoms make up your body, the Earth, the Solar System, and our Universe! They're the massively uncountable "building blocks" of all that is, and each one is a conscious collective on its own. As they band together, they create larger containers of consciousness. Atoms are the ultimate conduits for light. They are illuminated building blocks for all that is, yet they are only one form of building block... one form of foundational consciousness. This is a small portion of what's been lost to humanity.
By not acknowledging what was lost we don't feel the need to take responsibility for our actions, and as a result, many live in a constant state of blame. Meanwhile, the secrets of the universe are still embraced and shared sometimes quite literally behind our backs by the rest of Nature and a few "in the know." Sadly, most of humanity has become blind and deaf to them. It's time for us to stop, look, listen, comprehend, and become the light. It's time for humanity to shine!
