We live in a magical world and magic is definitely a real thing! And for those of you who refute this just picture this. Living on a gigantic rock flying around the universe at 490,000 miles per hour. This gigantic rock happens to be the perfect distance from a great ball of fire that if it was just a little closer or a little farther away this rock would be uninhabitable. In addition to this gigantic rock and ball of fire, we also have another gigantic rock (not as big as the one we live on) that moves oceans, controls life cycles and effects behaviour of life on this giant rock.
This giant rock is also home to nearly 9 billion different variations of life, all of which came from the same source and all of which did not exist in it’s current form at some point in the past. Some of this life has even decided that just surviving is not exciting enough, so they do weird things like make sounds out of strings and sticks and tightened pieces of plastic (music). Dress up and pretend to be other people in an attempt to entertain people who they don’t know (tv/theatre). And make sounds in order to let others know what they are thinking, feeling and doing (language).
Go to another level and look at the miracle that is you! Out of the hundreds of millions of sperm you were the one that made it through. You had roughly a 1 in a half a billion chance to make it and you did. You were a miracle before you were even born. If this is not enough to make you believe in magic then, I don’t know what is.
If you take this magic to the next level and that of your mind, body and soul existence, you can see that we truly are blessed. Don’t get me wrong there is a lot of injustice that needs to be worked out on this planet and there is a lot of suffering that we all go through, but we truly are blessed in the opportunity we have not only in our own lives, but also in our opportunity to be part of the solution to a lot of this suffering.
So now I feel you may be sold on the magic of this world, I want to give you 8 ways you can tune into this magical experience that is life.
Get Out Of Your Own Way
We can so often be our own worst enemies in life! We want to go out on a date, but the crippling fear of rejection holds us back. We want to pursue a career, but we don’t think it is achievable. We want to follow a passion that is literally bursting out of us, yet we say we don’t have the time. Get out of your own way.
Most things in life have a simple solutions, it is the miracle that lives in our scull that makes these solutions seem complex. In a nutshell if you want something go for it and if it doesn’t work out then at least you know you gave it your best shot.
Say Yes To Opportunities
It’s good to be ready in life, however we cannot always be ready for every eventuality. If something feels right, but you are not ready, say yes and learn on the way. You may be poet, with captivating stage presence and an angelic ability to convey words. Due to this you may be asked to teach a group poetry, this may not be what you are ready for, but if it feel right you should do it and learn as you go.
You can either live in fear of not being good enough and never get it wrong because you don’t try or you can take life by the horns and give things a go. If you jump occasionally you may fall and get some bruises, but eventually you will learn to fly.
Say No To Opportunities
The same way you should say yes if it feels right, you should say no if it feels wrong. I am not just talking about the little things either, I mean the big opportunities- the job promotion, the trip of a lifetime, the dream partner! Whatever it is, if it feels wrong let it go!
Follow The Synchronicity
I read a quote recently that is multilayered and beautiful, it comes from Terence Mckenna “The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish.”
This I believe to be true in a sense of that which you verbalise, but I also believe it to be true of the world around us. There is a language that is non verbal, which if you can tap into, you will realise the true power of all that is magic and that is synchronicity.
When you tune in and live in line with your true purpose, the world show you which directions you should take. Things have a habit of showing up physically, mentally and intuitively to guide you in the right direction. Sometimes it is a gentle whisper, sometimes a nudge and at others it is cosmically screamed at you. However it shows up in your world, understand it is real and that the sooner you learn its language the sooner you will be on the path to freedom.
Talk To People
This ties in with the last, occasionally you will intuitively feel the impulse to talk with someone, do it. Magic happens with relationships, seek out those who you are in sync with and talk to them.
Do What You Love
You have an entire world in front of you, the possibilities really are endless for what you can achieve. You could take something like psychology, break it down further into positive psychology, break it down further into what motivates people, break it down further into what motivates people to FILL IN THE BLANK. You could literally break something down until it is the most niche of things on the planet, then you could spend your life doing it and never learn it all.
The point I am trying to make with this is, you have an abundance of options, don’t spend your time doing things that you hate.
Sometimes you will have to search. Sometimes you will think you have found that thing that you love only for it to change. And other times you will be full of frustration in the fact that nothing seems to be fun, keep going, keep searching and keep asking questions!
If you have an intuitive feeling to do something give it a go and never settle for a life that is less than the one you deserve.
Do Good In The World
You are never too small to make a difference! You are powerful beyond your wildest dreams! You are a god or a goddess with the capability to do something impactful in this world, so never let the magnitude of a task deter you from taking it on.
You don’t necessarily have to be the activist and take the world on, but you can do the right thing every time an opportunity presents itself to do so. This truly is enough and if everyone adopted this attitude, peace would reign throughout this giant magical rock we live on.
Be Careful What You Think and Say
This is so important that it is hard to put down in a blog post. Think of it like this, if your mind was your friend would you want to hang out with that friend? How do you talk to yourself? Do you encourage yourself? Do you love yourself? You are the person you will hang out with more than anyone in the world don’t treat yourself in a way that is not acceptable.
This not only goes for your thoughts, but also your words, to both yourself and others. There is real magic in words and the clue comes from the word spelling, as when you spell out words you are literally casting a spell out into the world. Be careful what you say, it really does matter!
Much love to you and I hope you now either convinced or have had affirmed that life is a truly magical experience? Please let me know what you think!
