Use Your Magic
Some of you youngsters won’t understand this reference, but haven’t the rest of us all wished at some point that we had a magic twitching nose like Samantha Stephens?
On a dime she could make happen whatever she wanted. Just by thinking it and wriggling her nose.
Need someone to forget what they saw? Sam could do it.
Feel like transforming a person into an animal? Easy peasy.
Instant teleportation? No problemo.
Gotta reverse a curse from your mother put on your muggle hubby? She’s all about that.
Didn’t you wish you could do the same kind of magic?
I sure did.
But guess what?
We not only can, we already are.
We already are engaging our creative powers to affect the world around us.
The only difference is that some folks aren’t conscious about it, thus they’re not necessarily creating what they prefer.
… and we don’t have to master the nose twitch for it to work.
Similar to Samantha (minus the nose twitch) our magic comes from how we focus. From being willing to picture it, think it, and/or feel what we want, in order to let it unfold.
For example, I just completed a big move, and in the process found a wide variety of things to be anxious about …
- Will the internet work? What about the new phone?
- What will the animals think? How stressed will they be?
- How in the world will the timing work for all the different pieces that have to come together?
- Will I fit in this community?
- Was this the right change for me?
This could be a long list, you guys! I found a lot of things to worry about.
But each time I caught myself trying to figure out how to make something come together, or worrying that it wouldn’t, I’d do a little Samantha Stephens magic on it.
I’d just imagine it already real, the way I wanted it to be.
I felt it, saw it, thought it – the way I wanted it.
So when kitty cat Elsa went missing on the second day in the new house, after fretting for a moment or two, I remembered my magic. I spoke out loud as if she had just returned and I was talking to her directly: “There you are, Elsa! Nice to see you again! Thanks for coming back!”
I said it every time I walked in a room and caught myself looking for her. “There you are! Hi, Elsa!”
As if she were right in front of me.
Within a few hours she was. Turned up as if she’d never been gone.
And when I was exasperated trying to coordinate work between the house cleaners, carpet & tile guys, and furniture movers all scheduled on the same day, I gave up trying to make it happen and just practiced the feeling of how it all worked out perfectly. I sure didn’t see how that was going to happen, because it looked like wrong timing for everything.
But I conjured up the relief and delight of it all working out perfectly, and let it go.
Sure enough, Universe knows how to make that so. When I get out of the way. (Someone showed up early, another team was running an hour late, the third crew was delayed with an overheated van. And everything worked out perfectly for me!)
When I noticed myself second-guessing the decision to make this move, I pulled out a new pray rain journal and made entries about how it was even better than I dreamed, how good it felt to be here, and how clear it was that this was perfect for me.
And that’s exactly how it’s been unfolding … waking up in awe, receiving continual signs of confirmation, feelings of unbelievable amazement that this is my life now. Wonderful neighbors, beautiful area, acclimating animals. Just like I journaled. Except even better, because that’s what I wrote. 🙂
That’s how it works when you’re willing to use your magic for what you want rather than what you worry about.
All you have to do is practice your preferred reality (in thought, speech, action, and/or feeling), and then get out of the way. Just honor any inspired nudges to act, but mostly let it happen for you.
Stop trying to work it out your own self, and let magical forces intervene on your behalf.
It might not always be as immediate as Sam’s magic nose twitch, but it is every bit as reliable.
So use your magic the way you were meant to. Your life will thank you for it.
