I have always felt like there's something deep inside me that wants to get out, to be free. A natural talent perhaps such as singer, artist or pianist... Or maybe a mathematical genius or even just someone who can remember what they've just been told!!!!!
What I really desire is for ✨magic sparkles✨ to come flying out of my fingertips spreading ease and joy all over the place. Truly.
But so far that hasn't happened, well, not in the way I imagine it accompanied by rainbows and fairies anyway. However it has got me thinking about "magic" alot lately, how it exists in reality and how it appears to myself and others.
Magic could be defined as a spiritual connection, and feeling a spiritual connection is a deeply personal and subjective experience. In reality, there are several practices and approaches that many believe can help you foster and enhance your spiritual connection (aka magic, if calling it that makes you happy like it does me)
✨Self-reflection and introspection: Take time to explore your inner self and reflect on your beliefs, values, and purpose in life. Engage in activities such as journaling, meditation, or mindfulness to connect with your thoughts and emotions.
✨Nature and solitude: Spend time in nature and embrace moments of solitude. Being in natural surroundings can often evoke a sense of awe and wonder, allowing you to feel connected to something greater than yourself.
✨Mindfulness and meditation: Cultivate a regular mindfulness or meditation practice to quiet your mind, increase self-awareness, and open yourself to spiritual experiences. Various forms of meditation, such as loving-kindness meditation can help you connect with your spirituality.
✨Rituals and ceremonies: Engage in rituals or ceremonies that hold personal significance for you. This could involve lighting candles, creating an altar, practicing yoga, or participating in religious or spiritual ceremonies that align with your beliefs.
✨Creative expression: Explore creative outlets that resonate with your spirit, such as painting, writing, dancing, or playing music. Creativity can serve as a means of self-expression and can deepen your connection to your inner self and the world around you.
✨Gratitude and compassion: Cultivate an attitude of gratitude and compassion towards yourself and others. Acknowledge the blessings in your life and extend kindness and empathy to those around you. Practicing gratitude and compassion can foster a sense of interconnectedness and spiritual well-being.
✨Seek spiritual teachings and guidance: Explore spiritual literature, teachings, or philosophies that resonate with you. This could include reading sacred texts, attending religious or spiritual gatherings, or seeking guidance from spiritual teachers or mentors.
✨Remember that spirituality is a deeply personal journey, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Trust your own intuition and explore what practices and beliefs resonate with you on a deeper level. It's also important to approach your spiritual journey with an open mind, patience, and a willingness to embrace the unknown. So even without the magical-finger-glitter, remember that magic is all around us, that the simple, everyday little things we do spread joy and that they are accessible to us all. So go on, take a walk- slip off your shoes and feel the grass between your toes, feel connected, feel the energy, feel the magic. Dance, sing, paint, light a candle and take three slow deep breaths, write down your thoughts, put your phone down for a while and just listen to the birds.
✨I AM magic, YOU are magic so let's go and BE magic. Let everyone we meet feel our energy- thats the real magic ✨
I'd love to hear about your magic- hit reply and share with me what magic is to you.
Have a beautiful day my loves.
With gratitude and joy,
