You hear over and over again in self-development circles that what you focus on expands. I'm making a conscious effort to focus on the things in my life that I find divine and magical.
To me, magic is the alchemy of timing and awareness. Our job is to remain present and notice and then to take full advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself. If it feels light and good; I'm in. If it doesn't, I'm not - that's how I live my life.
When it comes to magic, it always feels light to me. Sometimes it's like I have a magic wand and I can create whatever I want. It never fails to blow me away and to keep me humbled and in pure gratitude.
While I've been posting these things on Facebook, I know that not everyone is in that environment. There's also so much more to say than just the tiny little quips I post there.
Because I love telling stories, I was designed to translate the universe and I have a lot to say, I wanted to start documenting the stories behind each magic posting. They are long so I'll only do a few at a time.
Here is the expanded version of Days 1-3 of the 100 Day Experiment in Magic.
Day 1: When I see light on my path (in photographs) or surrounding me I know my legion of angels are nearby. On Day 1 when I brought the experiment back, I felt surrounded by them. I can't think of a better way to start.
The other parts of Day 1 worth noting were the close of the first rental property sale; bringing a significantly needed financial breath. I saw a blue butterfly land on my dog and then me. In the Tarot deck I love and use for readings, a blue butterfly is on the 6 of Wands, a card that represents new beginnings and emerging from the darkness with a new set of wings (apropos given the financial deep breath). I had the joy of a fancy dinner with an amazing friend who is my #1 fan and constant cheerleader using an ancient gift certificate and while there, the piano guy plays the favorite song of a best friend I lost during my junior year of high school. I've written about her before.
Day 2: I had a tough chat with a friend and got off the phone feeling sad and just energetically off. I immediately got a text from another friend, completely unrelated about how special and beautiful I am. The second text was unprompted. Just a beautiful little shout out of love at the perfect time. I was immediately "righted". It's magic when the right words at the right moment can revitalize you at a soul level.
Day3: I was just coming off of a three-week vacation when this experiment started. As I frantically tried to unpack and get my house in order I misplaced my jewelry roll which holds all of my most precious and frequently worn pieces. I had NO idea where it was.
I filed a ticket with the airline for a lost item. I called my friend who drove me from the airport to search his car. I went back through all of the suitcases and my kids clothes and through every drawer in my room. I even called the grocery store we stopped at for lunch and some necessities to see if it fell out of my bag while shopping.
I search relentlessly for four days. Then I used a tool from Christie Marie Sheldon called the "What Would It Take" statement or WWIT for short and asked the universe what it would take to find my lost jewelry roll. I repeated this about 4-6 times energetically imagining my relief and joy when I would find it.
I got up and immediately felt compelled to walk into my closet. I reached up on a shelf, grabbed a purse I haven't used in a month and in it, under my winter hat (remember it's July...) I found my jewelry roll. From question to discovery in less than 2 minutes. I love my energy tools!!
I hope you enjoy this journey through magic with me. I've hear from many that it's inspiring and helps remind them to look for their own magic.
