What Does the Word Magic Mean to You?

When you hear the word Magic, what thoughts, associations, feelings, sensations, and visions arise in you?

When I hear the word Magic, I think of something cosmic, something out of the ordinary, something fantastical or whimsical. Just hearing the word elevates my mind and I feel more open to unusual or enchanting things. For me Magic often shows up in the form of synchronicities, and the more I notice them, the more they seem to appear.

Recently I was working on clarifying my goals for this year, and I felt like I needed some “outside” help, so I declared “Nine Days of Magic” for myself. During those nine days, which felt more special than usual days, I noticed lots of little things that felt magical, which might not ordinarily have felt magical. I realized that the mundane becomes magical when we are looking through the eyes of magic. It’s really all about our perception and what we are looking for.

So I learned that Magic doesn’t always show up as sparkling crystals! On the ninth day, which was yesterday, first thing in the morning when I opened my curtains, a dark speckled bird flew right up to my window! That felt like Magic! Then later on my walk, I felt the Magic in seeing flocks of birds soaring in the white winter sky above. As I watched those birds flying, I reflected on my self-declared “Nine Days of Magic” and I felt so grateful that during that time I gained the clarity that I was seeking about my goals.

If you are needing help working on an issue in your life, or you just simply need a few days to feel more fun, try declaring some days of Magic for yourself and see what happens. This is yet another way to Happy Up your mind!

May All Beings Be Happy!
