Yesterday I treated myself to a movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling. I loved it and highly recommend the movie. Without giving you spoilers, there’s a traveling wizard named Newt who meets up with a non wizard (or “nomag”) baker named Jacob and takes him to a very magical place.
So there’s a conversation at one point where Jacob thinks they need to get back to the other wizards. “After all, they made us cocoa!” And Newt says (I’m paraphrasing from memory), “You know if you go with them they’re going to obliviate you.”
“What’s that?” asks Jacob.
“They’ll make it so you don’t remember any magic.”
“I won’t remember any of this at all?” asked Jacob looking around at the magical creatures flying about his head. “I’m coming with you.”
Oh, I was bawling at this point in the movie. A life without magic! How sad and horrible.
And then I realized I’d done it to myself. I’d obliviated myself!
You know I’m the Magical Marketer and it’s an important part of my purpose to experience the magic of life while assisting others to change the world. I’m always talking about the metaphysical realm and helping psychics, intuitives, artists and healers of all stripes to get their message out to their tribe.
But there are times, and often times recently, when I have forgotten that life is magic.
Like the day after the election for instance. All magic was sucked out of my mind and I was all doom and gloom. And admittedly, the US is a scary and strange place right now to me. And I didn’t even let magic come to help me with this one tiny bit.
And to be honest, there have been times when my business was slow, and I got all stressed instead of pulling out my magic wand, or going with the flow, or letting the Universe have my back. I’ve worked myself to the bone some late nights with visions of a dark magic-less world beckoning me from the shadows.
And so here I was bawling in the movies realizing I have a choice to remember magic, to remember I don’t know everything, to remember, as Hamlet said, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
And that it’s not only a choice to not be obliviated, it’s a discipline. It’s something I have to DO to counteract the rubber-band reaction of my mind going back to it’s original conditioning (which was fairly atheistic when it came to things like God and magic, and included sentiments like, “life sucks.”)
So today I am newly recommitted to remembering Life is Magic and that I have a choice in how I envision the future. In fact I have an obligation to the future to ensure at least I am projecting magic that way.
And in any case, I can experience magic right now, in the present. In my ability to write about my experiences and hopefully inspire others… in my ability to present my writings to hundreds or even thousands of people throughout the world in an instant and spark a conversation on how all of us collectively can bring magic to bear on all that is happening in our world, our businesses, and our lives. Now that’s magic!
Do you relate to my story? Do you sometimes forget that you have a choice? Are you ready to bring more magic into your business, your life and the world? I want to hear from you! And I want to help you!
I want to know what you relate to in what I just wrote above. Have you let the outside world bring shadow into your mind, sucking out all the magic? What pieces of the intricate puzzle of you have you left behind, hid or pretended away? Are you ready now to bring all of you forward and truly serve your tribe?
I’m developing new offerings in the new year and would love your input. I want to know what you’re up to in the world, about your unique and magical gifts, what you’re bringing forward and what you won’t be silent about. I want to know what is keeping you from your true purpose, what frustrations you are experiencing, and what kind of help you really need. Most of all Iwant to hear about your vision of the future we can all create together.
