Do You Believe in Magic?

Sometimes I get frustrated with those who believe that they have an answer for everything. They love to offer what they believe are rational explanations for every phenomenal occurrence and being in this beautiful world and beyond. Do you believe in magic? I most certainly do. It adds wonder to my days, inspiration to each moment, beauty to the ordinary, and delight in the empty spaces. Promise and potential live there. How different life would be for me if I were not a believer.

I don’t want to have all the answers or the excuses. And who says that those answers and excuses are correct? Hmmmm? Why can’t there be fairies, unknown colors, indescribable possibilities and dragons? (Just to let you in on a secret…there are! If you believe in magic, you get to see these magical wonders…legally!)

Ronald Dahl once said, “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” And it is true. Those of us who believe view life differently than those who do not. The ordinary becomes awesome to us. We see the magic in each and every sunrise. We stop in our tracks to listen to the beautiful message being sent in the cardinal’s song. We feel the wonders of the world when our fingertips brush over a pussy willow branch. And we believe that every baby born holds expansive possibility.

May I make a suggestion? The next time you are having one of those days…you know the one’s that your heart is a bit heavy or your feelings of overwhelm have the better of you, allow a little magic to seep into your day. It changes everything. If you are not used to its power, it may take you a bit to reach it, but once you do, you won’t turn back. Magic lightens and brightens, it softens and eases and it awakens and radiates. It is the perfect fix for one of those days.

And if I may let you in on a little secret, the more you share magic, the more is blooms within you. Sharing it is easy. Sharing it is delightful and extraordinary. The gifts that come from sharing the magic awaken parts of you that others will find unusual. Some may be intrigued and charmed while others may laugh it off, but the alchemy of magic will find its way. Lives may be changed, including your own!
