Creating a Magical Life

One of my all time favorite books is, Oh the Places You'll Go, a children's book by Dr. Seuss. It is full of profound, humorous, yet practical life wisdom, for how to create and live a magical life. The book starts off like this:

"Congratulations! Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!You're off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose."

Dr. Seuss understood the magic that we all possess intrinsically. You do have the ability to steer yourself any direction you choose. That is because you are the great magician of your own life! And your magic is far greater than you could possibly imagine. Encoded within all of our spirits DNA, are magical powers of enormous capabilities. These powers include: Visualization and Manifestation, the Law of Attraction and the ability to create mental, emotional and physical states of being. And besides these powers, we also have embedded in our souls, ruby red slippers, a magic wand, a cape and magicians hat, which we can access at any given moment. And with these powers and tools, comes the ability to manifest virtually anything we could ever desire-anything... I decided to look up the word "desire" in the dictionary. One of the definitions is: to ask for; request something. So, to "desire" something is actually to ask for, request something from the universe. And with a strong enough "desire," we can actually pull something toward us, in a metaphysical sort of way. The amazing thing is, the universe is set up to give us the wishes of our heart. But, it only works according to our faith and intensity of our desires.

Our lives are meant to me magical, enchanting. The spiritual realm is full of magic and mystery, as is the physical world. The magic is all around us. We live in a magical universe. It is only when we lose our connection to spirit, or become negative and cynical, that life becomes dull and unmagical. Whether we realize it or not, we are all using our magic positively or negatively anyways, either consciously to our benefit or unconsciously to our demise. It is impossible not to use it. It is a free gift of the spirit.

Magic is something we all secretly yearn for. Look at the appeal of Disneyland to the general public. I believe, it's because somewhere inside of us, we know that magic is possible. We all hope that somehow, someone or something will arrive and wave that magic wand and then our lives will suddenly transform. But, what we don't realize, is that we all have the power to create magic in our own lives NOW. We don't need someone else to waive the wand for us. In fact, waiting for someone else to do it for you, is like waiting for rain in the desert, while at any given moment, you could dig a well and tap into a unlimited supply of water.... So stop waiting for something outside of you to give you magic. Just waive your magic wand, accept your God given power and use it to unleash the magic residing within you.

To create magic, you need to do these 5 things:

#1) Believe in magic (believe in and accept that you have magic power inside you at your disposal)
#2) Keep your mind totally positive (understand that like energy attracts like energy)
#3) Stay close to the source of enchantment, mystery (the creator, the great genie of the universe)
#4) Watch the company you keep (a rich, enchanting life requires you surrounding yourself with people who are believers in the magic as well)
#5) Practice creating magic in your life regularly (take out your magic wand and magicians hat, put them on, and access their power)

One last bit of advice on Creating a Magical Life is, to act is if you are a powerful magician. Even if you don't feel like it, you can bluff your way into the magic. Pretend you are magic. In my former clothing business, I had one particular young men's t-shirt line with a cartoon hero character on it. I found that I actually had to become the hero character on the t-shirts, to act and think as if I were him, in order to be able to draw forth the inspiration I got, for the ideas for the designs. There is power in acting as if you are something that you are not at the moment. By acting as if you already are something, you bring the magic to become that something right to you. It's time for you to start acting like the great magician that you really are. It is time for you to unleash the magic and create a magical life.
