“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When I was a little girl, there was this children’s television series produced in Czechoslovakia called Arabela. I used to love that show mainly because there was a lot magic in it. The whole show revolved around the members of a regular family, the Majers, who encounter people from the Fairy Tale Kingdom. And I remember the series featured several magic items amongst which a magic ring. That ring had the power to make any wish come true And I so wanted to have that ring. I remember fantasizing about all of the cool things I would’ve done if only I had that ring…
I was just a little kid at that time, and we all know that children have no trouble believing in magic and believing in fairy tales. I really believed that if I had that ring I could’ve create anything I wanted. I would’ve made all my wishes become reality.
Now, whenever I think about Arabela and the magic ring, I smile simply because I know that we can all create magic, we can all make our dreams come true and we can do it without a magic ring. We only need an open mind, a burning “desire, imagination, and a steadily focused attention on the feeling of the wish fulfilled.” ~ Neville, The Power of Awareness
What I will share with you here today are 7 things that are meant to help you to create your own fairy tale, your own magical world. Something that has taught me how to live life on my own terms and bring magic back into my life. And I trust it can do the same for you. Enjoy.
1. Withdraw your attention from the problems of the world
We like to stay informed, to know about all the horrible things that are happening in world and for some strange reason, we get a sort of twisted pleasure from sharing this newly acquired “knowledge” with those around us. We talk about our problems more than we talk about our joys and if we don’t have problems, we create some for ourselves just so we can stay busy.
It’s one thing to get interested in the problems of the world because you want to come up with solutions, and another thing to just do it because you’re bored and you have nothing better to do with your life. Placing your focus and attention on problems will not make them go away, on the contrary, it will create even more problems for yourself and those around you. Withdraw your attention from the problems of the world and start placing you attention on creating something that will make you feel better about yourself and your life.
“Everything is perfect in the universe – even your desire to improve it.” ~ Wayne Dyer
2. Ask your Soul to lead the way
I believe that we are all souls and that our bodies are nothing but the vehicles we need to express ourselves in this material world. It’s our Soul who has the power to create worlds and to make magic happen. If we can learn to align ourselves with who we truly are underneath it all, if we can get ourselves out of the way and allow our Soul to lead the way, nothing will be impossible for us to create and achieve.
3. Leave the crowd
Leave the crowd. Commit yourself to staying true to yourself at all times. Promise yourself to never allow the noise of those around you to distract you from your newly chosen path and learn to listen to your inner voice, guidance and intuition.
Learn to think your own thoughts, to create your own ideas and to come up with your own rules. Always remember this – if you follow the crowd, you will get no further than the crowd. If you want your life to be different than that of the majority of people, you have to have to do things that the majority of people doesn’t have the courage to do.
“Each one of you has something no one else has, or has ever had: your fingerprints, your brain, your heart. Be an individual. Be unique. Stand out. Make noise. Make someone notice. That’s the power of individuals.” ~ Jon Bon Jovi
4. Make good use of your imagination
Imagination is one of our most precious gifts. With the power of your imagination you can create worlds, making all kind of wonderful things happen to you and because of you. In his book, Hostage at the Table, George Kohlrieser talks about the power of imagination in a really powerful way, “The power of imagination is incredible. Often we see athletes achieving unbelievable results and wonder how they did it. One of the tools they use is visualization or mental imagery… they made the choice to create their destinies and visualized their achievements before they ultimately succeeded.”
Make good use of your imagination. Focus your attention on that which you want to be, do and have. Imagine yourself having it all and being it all. Allow yourself to feel the rush, the adrenaline and the excitement that comes from having all those things happen and start creating your life from that place.
5. Make your future dream a present fact
If you want to create a new reality for yourself, you have to have faith in who you are and you have to change your awareness of yourself. You have to become that which you want to create and you have to start embodying all the qualities of the person you wish to become. “Then you must make your future dream a present fact. You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are already that person. If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.” ~ Neville, The Power of Awareness
6. Assume the feeling of your wish fulfilled
The more time you spend thinking, imagining and feeling the feelings that come from having your wish fulfilled, the faster things will begin to manifest and the easier it will be for you to create all the things you want to create.
When I first started writing on my book, I had no idea how will I publish it nor did I know who will publish it. All I knew was that I was writing a book and that my book will be published. I saw it in my mind’s eye, I felt it in my heart and I knew that all the other things that were needed for my book to be shared with the world will be taken cared of. In fact, I wrote in one of my notebooks, and I quote “Have book published by the biggest and most respected publisher in the world.”
Well, not long after I started writing on my book, I had the chief editor of the world’s largest book publishers in the world emailing me and asking if I wanted to write a book and publish it with them and guess what? My book will be published by them. I guess I do have magic powers, but then again, we all do :)
“To be conscious of being poor while praying for riches is to be rewarded with that which you are conscious of being, namely, poverty. Prayers to be successful must be claimed and appropriated. Assume the positive consciousness of the thing desired.” ~ Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness
7. Don’t worry about the HOW
I have come to realize that once you become aware of who you truly are and once you align your mind with your heart and your body with your Soul, life starts to take very good care of you. The right people seem to show up in your life, the right books, the perfect circumstances… and if before you used to stress a lot about HOW you are going to make it all happen, you now focus mostly on the WHAT and the WHY without worrying about the HOW.
I’m telling you, life is meant to be easy, very easy but our attachment to the past, to our fears and to all our limitations makes life hard.
Don’t worry about the HOW. Learn to delegate authority to life itself. Focus on WHAT you want and WHY you want what you want. If you intentions are good and if having your dreams come true will benefit a lot of people, life will take care of the HOW and will take very good care of you :)
“Most men believe that fame, great wealth or political power would secure them against the storms of life. So they seek to acquire these as the anchors of their life, only to find that in their search for these they gradually lose the knowledge of their true being. If man places his faith in things other than himself, that in which his faith is placed will in time destroy him; at which time he will be as one imprisoned in confusion and despair.” ~ Neville Goddard, The Power of Awareness
And this is how it’s done. This is how you make magic happen. If you don’t like what you see, if you don’t like the world you live in and if you want to create your own world, your own reality, you can do so by putting all of these things into practice. You can make magic happen and I hope you will.
Why do you think so many people sell themselves short, settle for way less than they are worth? Why do you think people find it so hard to leave the crowd and create their own rules and their own reality? I really want to know what are your thoughts on this. You can share your insights by joining the conversation below :)
P.S. If you want to learn more about creating magic in your life you should read Neville Goddard’s books, The Power of Awareness and Your Faith is Your Fortune. Love them both!
