3 Ways to Get Your Magic Back

So lately I've been having one day where I feel totally great and happy and joyful, and then the next day I feel stuck, limited, heavy, and not like myself.  

I've been having this yo-yo effect from day to day and would much rather have more of the days where I feel amazing! You know the days where you have energy and things make you laugh and everything happens with ease. Would you like to have more of those too?

Have you ever had a time in your life when you felt AMAZING? Maybe you felt your whole body buzzing with joy. Maybe you felt incredibly peaceful and calm. Maybe you felt potent and strong. Maybe you created something or changed something that you thought you couldn't. Maybe you just had a really good day where everything seemed to flow.

Whatever it was for you, do you remember a time where you just felt joyful and LIKE YOU? And from that space you created some pretty cool stuff?

That is the magic that we all truly BE.

We have the ability to create magical possibilities just by being who we are. And being as unique and weird and different as we are.

Did you know the original definition of weird was "of spirit, fate or destiny"?

Yet, do you ever feel like your day to day life is pretty far from magic? Or lacking the brilliance and unqueness and weirdness that you'd like to see? Like you used to be able to create some cool stuff in your life, but not anymore?

Here are some simple things that you can do to get your magic back: (from Dr. Dain Heer and Access Consciousness tools )

1) Every morning you can ask "Universe, show me something beautiful today". It doesn't sound like a question, but it is. What if you could tap into the beauty and abundance of the Earth with that much ease? Hint - it is that easy ;)

2) When you are feeling crappy, limited, heavy, depressed, down on yourself, or just not as awesome as you'd like to feel - ask "Who does this belong to?" If you feel lighter after asking that, or if your body relaxes, IT ISN'T YOURS! 

We are all actually super psychic and aware. 99% of our thoughts, feelings and emotions actually aren't ours. We pick them up from everything and everyone around us.

Sounds wacky right? I thought so too. But if you'd like to play with this tool - give it a try. I'm amazed when I use this myself or see my daughter use this tool and all of the angst or frustration just go away.

So if you feel lighter after asking, you can then follow that with "Return to sender". You don't have to know where it came from or feel bad about giving it back. Returning it to where it came from, allows it to also get cleared from that other person or place or space if they choose.

3) Ask - "If I were truly being the magic I am today, what would I choose right away?" This is not a question that you have to sit and figure out. Don't beat yourself up about not knowing your 'path' or worrying that you're not doing what you 'should' be doing. Follow what feels fun for you and what feel light. Even the Dalai Lama has said - "The purpose of life is to have fun". Agreed!

Open yourself up to the awareness that this question creates. You can go about your day asking questions with wonder and curiosity, and follow what feels like it would create more magic in your life.

Choosing for you, choosing for more magic, choosing for joy and laughter - this is what the planet and all the people on it require to heal.

What can we contribute? Hmm, I wonder what are the infinite possibilities... :)


It's a Naked Celebration! - How to Love Our Bodies

A few weeks ago, my 4 year old daughter and her friend were jumping on a trampoline in the gorgeous, but chilly, spring weather.

When all of the sudden, they ran inside, disappeared for a minute, and then came back out, completely nude, giggling and yelling "It's a naked celebration!".  

They jumped on the trampoline, shaking their little bums, laughing, and loving their bodies!

They were so joyful, so giddy, so carefree.

What can we learn from those amazing little girls? What would it take to love our bodies that much?  

I think we can begin by letting go of all of the places where we judge and critique ourselves and our bodies.  

How often have you looked in the mirror actually trying to find all of your new wrinkles, sags, or other 'imperfections'?  

In Japan, there is a concept called Wabi Sabi, which is basically based on the idea that it's actually the imperfections that create beauty. That the imperfections are more valuable than perfection itself.

Wow.

Leonard Cohen expresses the same sentiment in his song "Anthem", "Ring the bells that still can ring; forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in." 

What if you could start to function from a place of total gratitude for your body, JUST AS IT IS? And be grateful for you may see as imperfections.

Imagine what you and your body could create from that space of gratitude?

Our bodies actually listen to us.  They have their own awareness and consciousness.

If you thank your body for how it supports you and for all of the amazing things it does for you, it responds by creating more health and ease.  

So a great practice to start is to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and tell your body how beautiful it is - just the way it is, without changing anything.  Say "Hi Beautiful!"

This is also a great thing for your children to see.  Imagine growing up with that kind of love for your body as a model! Imagine the confidence and joy your children can create about their bodies from that space.

So get naked and be proud!  Walk around your house a bit (or your bedroom) and thank your body for being so amazing.

Then, from that place, you can begin to ask questions:

Body, what weight and shape do you want to be?

Body, what do you want to eat today?

Body, would you like to be outside today? Would you like to move in some way?

I know this may sound strange...to talk to your body.  But what's the harm in trying?

Like so many things, it is one of the many tools that I have experimented with in my laboratory of life and have been amazed with the results!

So, I wanted to share this wacky perspective with you! And to remind you (as I was by my daughter) that we all came into the world as children who LOVED their bodies.

And next time you want to critique or judge some part of your or your body, just remember the greatness of you and how truly amazing and unique you are.

As Dr. Seuss says, "There is no one who is You-er than YOU!"

Love your body and be grateful for all that it contributes to your life and living. 

You are a gift to the world, just the way you are.  You are unique.  

You being you is the only thing that is required to create a life that is better than anything you could imagine. 

Here's another fun question to ask yourself, "What would it take for more of ME to show up in my life?"

Have fun experimenting with these tools and a new way of looking at your body.  

As always, see what works for you and what feels light, then follow your heart down your path.
