Magic keeps coming up in my life(the word, the symbol, the meaning, the practice) and through synchronicity, i stumbled on this wonderful blog credit goes to mindofataurus for this idea! I became absolutely inspired especially after the question recently about magick 😉 She calls it the 28 days of gratitude. I was reading reviews of the book and they said it’s recommended that you try sharing it with a group of people to see the MAGIC even stronger appear in our lives. So randomly I decided to buy the book myself and i’m just getting started but i was thinking what a GREAT idea to share this with you all. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to share our own experiences of the 28 days of gratitude, you can either do it on your own blog, reblog from the original post or simply write an answer here. I will share Passages of the book with you and each day is a different lesson and practice towards expressing Gratitude. It would be a great way to practice more self-empowerment and creating positive energy within our lives. We are going to bring the Magick to our lives and we’re going to do it together. 🙂
“Remember when you were a child and you looked at life in total wonder and awe? Life was magical and exciting, and the smallest things were utterly thrilling to you. You were fascinated by the frost on the grass, a butterfly flittering through the air, or any strange leaf or rock on the ground. You were full of excitement when you lost a tooth, because it meant the Tooth Fairy would be coming that night, and you would count down the days to that magical night of Christmas! Even though you had no idea how Santa Claus could get to every child in the world in one night, somehow he did it, and he never let you down.
Reindeer could fly, there were fairies in the garden, pets were like people, toys had personalities, dreams came true, and you could touch the stars. Your heart was full of joy, your imagination knew no limits, and you believed that life was magical! There is an exquisite feeling many of us had as children, that everything is good, that every day promises more excitement and adventure, and that nothing could ever thwart our joy for the magic of it all. But somehow as we grew into adults, responsibilities, problems, and difficulties took their toll on us, we became disillusioned, and the magic we once believed in as children faded and disappeared. It’s one of the reasons why as adults we love to be around children, so that we can experience that feeling we once had, even if it’s just for a moment. I am here to tell you that the magic you once believed inis true, and it’s the disillusioned adult perspective of life that is false. The magic of life is real – and it’s as real as you are. In fact, life can be far more wondrous than you ever thought it was as a child, and more breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and exciting than anything you’ve seen before. When you know what to do to bring forth the magic, you will live the life of your dreams. Then, you will wonder how you ever could have given up in believing in the magic of lifeYou may not see reindeer fly, but you will see the things you’ve always wanted appearing before your eyes, and you will see the things you’ve dreamed of for so long suddenly happening. You will never know exactly how everything weaved together for your dreams to come true, because magic works in the invisible realm – and that’s the most thrilling part! Are you ready to experience the magic again?”
Some general rules:
- We can use a specific tag that way all of our Gratitude posts go in one feed together. I will also create a Page that way you can look up the Gratitude posts that way they don’t get lost between Qs. I was thinking #magicaldaysofgratitude
- You don’t have to get the book because i’ll be posting from it but if you want the book for your own enjoyment by all means go for it 🙂
- Try not to miss a day otherwise it can throw off the magic of the practice and the momentum of the experience
- I’ll try to do the post in the early morning that way the entire day is open to experiencing the power of gratitude and the exercise.
- Have fun! Use your imagination, Build your Dreams into reality. The universe is playful, don’t let this be a chore, let it be a creative journey 🙂
I figure this would be a nice change of pace from our usual blog activity but also it will be fun because it’s interactive between all of us who participate. Since it’s kinda the middle of the week, i was thinking it would be more formal to start on a Sunday. The day of the Sun 🙂 Also if you want to read the book/or buy it you have time! (i know how some people like to hold books, i’m weird like that too) This will be kinda like our own little Spiritual/awakening book club. No book necessary though only your mind 🙂
Let’s unleash the mind into the imagination.
Any questions or comments, list away let’s begin the magic <3
