about 👽

Ahoy, Traveler!

And welcome. I am glad you’re here, because I have much to share with you.

First thing’s first, Traveler:

You’ll notice that I call you “Traveler.”

Now, why is that? Because:

It’s what you are, on a very essential level of being. And it’s what I am too. You see, we are all travelers, Traveler! Life is a journey and we travel through it — together (whether we know it – or accept it – or not).

And so, this is how I shall call you…

Until I know your name, that is! Then I shall call you by that, whenever possible.

Devin Ryback…?

Here’s the second thing, Traveler:

Me! I’m the second thing. Hi.

I am Devin Ryback, also known as Devin The Mindful Mage.

I am an Artist, Coach, Educator and a real Magician (huh?).

I am a Certified Consulting Hypnotist with over 500 hours of clinical hypnotherapy training and a degree in Integrative Healing.

I am a gateway for Joy, Love, Healing, and Magic entering this world.

Alright, yeah. Cool. But what does all that mean?

M.A.C.E.

Magic. Artistry. Coaching. Education.

These are the four main facets present in my work, and they define the primary methods by which I help others connect with Joy, Love, Healing, and Magic.

Artistry

I am an Artist. I approach and experience life through the lens of Art. Everything I do and experience, I perceive as art. I believe that a human life is a work of art, and that each of us has the opportunity and ability to create a beautiful, divinely inspired, artful life.

Using the lens of Art allows me to suspend my judgements of "good" and "bad" and instead perceive what is – and allow it to be. From there, it becomes easier to create a reality that I prefer. You can do this too.

Coaching

I am a coach. What is a coach? A coach is a helper, a mirror, a truth-sayer, a guide, and a friend. A coach asks the right questions and showers you with awareness. A coach holds you accountable to your word, and encourages you to create the life you desire.

My flavor of coaching infuses narrative psychology, hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming, somatic awareness, shamanism, and magic: a tasteful, potent, yet gentle blend which yields deep transformation of body, mind, and spirit.

Education

I am an Educator. To teach and to educate are two different things. To teach is to impart my knowledge unto you. To educate is to guide you toward your own innate knowledge, and cultivate it.

Both are involved in my approach, though I especially aim to educate: to help you remember the ancient knowledge and wisdom already within you, and breathe it to life.

Your divine body has a lineage of thousands of ancestors, all of whom have gifted you their evolutionary prowess. This inheritance lives on in your genetic code – and you can access it.

Your divine soul has a lineage of thousands of lives, all of which have granted you precious insights and experiences. This inheritance lives on in your mind – and you can access it.

Magic

I am a Magician. Magic (also spelled "magick") and art are not far apart. I often say that when Artistry and Science meet, we get Magic.

Magic is connected to feelings of wonder and reverence.

Magic is a practice of awakening to the interconnectedness of all things, and the practice of using that awareness to influence yourself and your world.

I see life through this lens of magic, ever open to miracles and meetings with the Divine in any moment.

Joy, Love, Healing, Magic

These four energies are the main elements of my existence and what I strive to embody. In my personal and professional practice I serve as a gateway for these essential energies.

From their expression arise Health, Wealth, Peace, and Prosperity, and I aim share these fruits with all beings of the Cosmos.

Joy is alignment with your Divine Desire.

Love is commitment to your Divine Desire.

Healing is shedding resistance to your Divine Desire.

Magic is merging with your Divine Desire.

Mace

The acronym "M.A.C.E." is actually rather fitting.

A mace is a weapon used to break armor – and this process of de-armoring is a major aspect of the work I do. Most of us, myself included, have created layer upon layer of psychic and emotional "armor" around our mind and body to protect ourselves from the highly sensational and often poorly framed experiences of childhood.

If these experiences had been framed more beneficially – if our parents, teachers, and guardians were more emotionally intelligent and skilled at holistically navigating human existence – then perhaps it would not have been necessary to create these elaborate suits of armor, which serve to desensitize our experience of reality.

Now, on this path of intentional healing and self-actualization, if we are to fully integrate our experiences, distill them into wisdom, and embody our true power...

we must break through and remove the armor...

and feel what it is to truly be.

Choose your own adventure

Whatever you choose, Traveler, you are on your way Home, for that is the only way we can ever go.

I am wishing you wellness in all ways, always.

Until next time, farewell, Traveler!

Love,
Devin
