Creating Magic and Little Miracles in your Everyday Life
Creating Magic and Little Miracles in your Everyday Life
Vitality Conscious Living – Feb. 2014
By Gord Riddell and Kathy Ryndak
Do you remember when you were a child and life’s smallest moments could engage and delight you in the most enchanting way? I believed in magic, angels and fairies when I was a small girl and I still do. I remember playing with energy with my sister jumping up and down on our beds. We were able to vividly see energy or prana and would try to catch it but it would slip right through our hands. Then both of us, through the power of intention, would change the colour or the shape of the energy and giggle in awe and delight. This is one of my favourite childhood memories because it confirmed to me that magic does exist.
By magic, I don’t mean childish magical thinking or that all of sudden we will be walking on water or changing water into wine although magic and miracles are closely related.
What is a Magical Life?
Despite all of your struggles, lessons, challenges, moments of darkness you still find joy and magic in life and the moment. We approach life with a sense of wonderment, curiosity, enchantment, delight and the playfulness and creativity of a child. Usually, magic comes from the simplest of things and is free. We may be in awe of a moment of synchronicity that the universe creates for us. We see beauty in every living thing and this brings us great delight – a baby smiling, a puppy playing or a lovely flower brings us joy. We experience more heavenly energies in our daily lives.
Magic is also another word for using intention and vision and, when aligned to Source, we co-create something wonderful in our life. We are able to manifest for the highest good and others benefit from what we co-create.
The archetypes involved in living a magical are the Magical Child, White Magician and Sacred Human. Your Magical Child is the part of you that is spiritual, creative, intuitive and fun. By White Magician, we mean “are you a good witch” as opposed to “a bad witch”. Glinda, the good witch from “The Wizard of Oz” said to Dorothy “You had the power all along, my dear.” Our power through the White Magician is when we use our gifts of spirit, intuition and ability to manifest only for the highest good with integrity. Our Sacred Human is aligned with our soul versus ego, comes from love not fear, lives in oneness and comes from the mystical heart.
Some of the most important spiritual leaders and scientists of modern day believe(d) in magic and miracles. We would like to share some of our favourite quotes to add gravitas to what some may think to be a frivolous topic.
Magical and Miraculous Ideas
Einstein said “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” One of his most famous quotes was “The most important question a person can ask is, Is the universe a friendly place?” If you believe the universe is friendly vs. hostile it will respond to you in this way. It will conspire with you and support you in what you want to create. It wants to work in your favour and will help to correct your path when you go off course. Emerson stated “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
We have always thought that Transformational Arts is a miracle! We concocted the perfect potion of attracting the right teachers, staff and students through divine guidance and holding a vision with unlimited possibilities.
Thich Nhat Hahn notes that miracles happen everywhere. He states “Around us, life bursts with miracles. If we live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere”. The key here is living in the present moment. When we do, we realize that a little miracle just happened in our life in contrast to being non-aware and it fleeting by unnoticed. Again, an important part of magic is seeing and appreciating beauty in people and in the simplest of things.
You can invite magic and miracles everyday into your life by holding this intention. Dr. Wayne Dyer says “I am realistic. I expect miracles.” When you do have a magical moment, thank the Divine since gratitude acts like a magnet to attract more magic, miracles and abundance to you. Invite your Magical Child to appreciate it for he or she will feel a deep sense of awe and wonderment around this creation. Higher octave emotions are also magnetic and allow more to flow to us.
Dyer embellishes this thought with stating “Once you believe in yourself and see your soul as divine and precious, you’ll automatically be converted to a being that can create miracles.” This will be enhanced for us when we stay connected with Source and come from the I AM presence acknowledging that God is within us.
Mahatma Ghandi noted “There is a force in the universe, which, if we permit, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.” It is important for us to be open and allow this energy to move through us without great expectation around it. Trust in it and have faith and hope. Don’t try to control it and let the universe work its magic. You will have many more eureka moments of synchronicity and outcomes that you did not think were possible. Remember that the universe can create infinite possibilities through your intentions.
You are a magical being and may not realize this. Kahil Gibran, author of The Prophet states “The appearance of things changes according to your emotions and thus we see the magic in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” When you own this, you will see magic and miracles wherever you go. Through the law of attraction and practice of gratitude you will only attract more magic to you. Remember that everyone owns a pair of ruby shoes that when clicked with the right intention brings magic and goodness into our life.
