What Is a Muggle?

Muggle is a term we use occasionally in law of attraction world that might be worth explaining for those who aren’t familiar with it …

The term as used by J.K. Rowling indicates “a person who lacks any sort of magical ability and was not born into the magical world.”

It’s used in many circles to describe those outside of the group. (Like civilians are to military peeps.)

I sometimes talk about muggle ways, muggle thinking, muggle habits, and yes – muggle people.

In LOA circles, muggles are just folks who don’t know about their ability to create reality.

It’s not like in Harry Potter world, where you are either magic or a muggle.

Each of us is capable of creative magic.

It’s just that some don’t know or believe or use it to their benefit. (Because many muggles inadvertently use their creative powers to foil their desires.)

That’s muggle living: relying on action to try to make things happen, or believing in fate and feeling powerless to steer their lives where they want to go. Not realizing that thoughts and vibrations matter. A lot.

Here’s the thing about muggles and conscious creators …

It isn’t so much that you either are or you aren’t – but rather that we’ve all got some habits of both.

Conscious creators are just more on the scale of believing in possibilities and their ability to manifest them. And muggles are more on the end where they believe in hard work and practical limitations.

I have my muggle moments where I unconsciously try to effort something into being. Just out of old habit.

Other times I consciously tune my vibration to what I want to experience and let Universe do the heavy lifting. But I’m capable of both routines. I think many of us are.

So when we use the term muggle, we’re just describing someone who is not aware of their creative powers. Sometimes I fit that description on occasion.

And it describes a lot of people that I love.

If I use awareness of my own muggle tendencies to enhance my ability to choose how I engage life, that gives me a better chance of empowering myself to create what I desire.

With that in mind, I can genuinely say, let’s hear it for the muggles! For those who simply don’t realize what powerful creators they are, and for those times when we muggle it our own selves.

It’s all good. 🙂

  • Hi Jeannette… You brought up a very interesting way in “describing someone who is not aware of their creative powers.” The awareness is a key subject when I’m trying to pass along my knowledge to my readers. I don’t know that I would call them muggles but now I’ll have that in my mind when I’m thinking about them.

      I stubbled across this quote “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” – Wayne Dyer
      I still love the word muggles. I never heard of it before this blog too. It makes me smile, in a bad way 🙂

  • Mrs V says:

    Oh sweet Jesus. I have been thinking non-stop about Muggles. I can’ t have them in my life. They flip my skin esp. the ex bf that knew how to work is magic with instant results… OK 2-3 hours max but never use it in other areas of his personal private life. Sheesh!!
    I am more open to Muggles out side my private life. Sorry but it does bug me out but I know I just have to believe that every single person I meet regardless of what they are going through “uses” their magic.
    It’s the Muggles who already know “how” to practice the co-creation methods but don’t bother. yeah I do get my off days but still. But saying all that I am really OK with folk not believing in LoA or who don’t know. I was even blocked from a LoA forum for going on a rant about it all LOL.
    I can still have a laugh about my stance on this as I know that it’s me that has to change my attitude towards “them” LOL.
    Many thanks and blessings Jeannette and to the members who have posted comments on this. 🙂

    Now that I’ve had time to explore both worlds, I see why many choose the muggle path…
    I use to really judge people who dismissed things like the Law of Attraction or intuition. Anyone with half-a-brain can test either to see that they are real. One day, I was judging someone I know, when suddenly it hit me that neither LOA or intuition fit anywhere into the person’s path. In fact, introducing either of those things, into this individual’s life probably would do more harm than good. I wouldn’t change what I know, but I’m also aware that the experiences I’ve had have “pulled back the curtain” on the movie of life (at least to some degree).
    Many people I know are totally caught up in the intense highs and lows that come from watching a movie, super excited when a lucky situation occurs and moved to tears when a character dies. It’s not that I don’t get excited or sad, but when you know that luck is actually alignment, and death is no different from a friend leaving on a trip for awhile, it’s just not the same intensity. It’s like watching a movie but also seeing some of the behind the scenes stuff at the same time. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what my LOA and intuition skills make possible but the knowing is a double-edged sword. It’s absolutely right for my life but that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone else. There are actually some real benefits to being a full out muggle =)

      P.S. Thanks for posting this article Jeannette, seeing where I’ve got some muggle tendencies still going on proved to be of a lot of value =)

      Same here! I used to dismiss those who are not open to LOA. I do catch myself more when I notice a lack of interest and just drop it rather than “try” to convince them they’re missing out; that their lives would be so much better. We’re all on our own paths and I find that living my own life as a conscious creator sets a greater example than getting on my soap box. The muggles that are near and dear to me will simply notice how things happen easily for me and perhaps be curious as to what my secret is. I’ll simply quote what I read here in this post which I think is so brilliant, ” It’s not luck, it’s alignment!”

    I love the picture hahaha … just love it 🙂

    Whenever I notice muggle tendencies in myself or others, I remind myself about how Rowling herself played with the concept.
    One of the characteristics of the baddies in the Harry Potter books is their discrimination against muggles. They’d like to wipe them out, and they certainly don’t want muggle blood tainting the magical world. Their whole energy about muggles is judgement, condemnation and hatred.
    But Rowling also gave us the delightful Arthur Weasley – Dad to Harry’s best friend Ron. Arthur’s job with the Ministry of Magic is to research and understand the muggle world. He finds muggles to be extraordinary and wonderful beings whose ways are mysterious and ingenious, even if a little misguided and inefficient. How amazing that muggles would invent aeroplanes instead of simply teleporting like a wizard would – and how brave and courageous muggles are, to keep doing things the way they do them.
    That sense of admiration and affection for muggles serves me WAY better than judgement or condemnation.
    Next time I do a muggle move, I’m going to channel a lot more Arthur Weasley and a lot less Draco Malfoy.

      love that point of view Jannette. You studied Harry Potter well! 🙂 I think these are the books I’m reading next! 🙂 I read first though … all others were at the time with other magicians 🙂

    • Elle says:

      Oh, what a great way of looking at it! Thank you for this! It releases all the anger and frustration I have with them and dealing with them, which pisses me off most of the time, an attitude that hurts me even more, so I know I need to chill and just be more curious and compassionate than boiling over like a pot. This way is so much better.

  • Dana says:

    I have to say I loved this article! Especially the part about acknowledging that we are surrounded by, and have “muggle” qualities in us — non-judgment is so freeing! Thanks again Jeannette — you continue to inspire me. xo

  • That is the coolest dragon picture I’ve ever seen! 😀
