if you look...

Naysayers abound. Not surprisingly, most folks are as skeptical as Scrooge on Christmas Eve. Can't say I blame them. I used to be one of 'em. Not so much now. Correction. Not at all now. Because I've been paying attention. And I'm certain that magick happens. I see it every day. Why? I'm looking.

I'm gonna skip all the malarkey about 'the state of the world economy' and all the rest of that crapola. We've all heard it, continue to hear it (if we're listening for it, that is) and it takes a pretty focused effort to NOT hear it. So, I'm skipping that part. The part that begs attention, however, is the presence of said magick. Like...how much of it prevails in what may be considered one of the 'toughest' times in our evolution. For example...

I've been wanting to learn Qi Gong. Since the first time I saw someone practicing this beautifully flowing art, I've wanted to learn. But it was one of those things that wasn't 'at the top of my priorities'. Translation: didn't really have the funds to do it. That is, until I realized that it was precisely because I hadn't made it a priority that I was keeping it at bay. Once I saw this, I took action. Wrote a letter. Asked. Sent the letter with anticipation and a knowing that my request would be honored. Guess what...it was. Yep. Just like that. I asked, and I got what I asked for. In less that 3 days, the DVD I'd asked for showed up. Imagine that.

Same thing with the hair cut I wanted. It was time. Bangs all overgrown and hanging in my eyes...driving me cuckoo. I'd promised the lovely gal who cuts my hair that I would NOT cut them myself. She assured me that I could have them trimmed any ol' time I wanted FOR FREE. But, I wanted the whole she-bang, not just my bangs trimmed. So, I waited. Kept saying, 'the money will show up. be patient.' Next thing I know, someone gives me a Gift Certificate to the place where my gal works. For my birthday. Outta the blue. There it was. My haircut!

Now, you may think these are 'trivial' things. I don't. I think they're utter proof that when we ask, it is given. As small as it may seem to some, these kinds of 'luxuries' are not small to me. They're the sprinkles on the icing on the cake. And I love sprinkles! So, when I opened that birthday card and saw the Gift Certificate, I got goosebumps all up and down my spine. Cuz just that morning I'd said a silent 'thank you' for the haircut I knew was coming. Magick. Pure, spine tingling, life affirming MAGICK.

So don't give up your dreams. Small or large, it takes very little for them to come 'true'. The Universe can make it happen. The Universe knows 'how'. All you gotta do is ask...and then, every time you think about it again, say 'thanks'. KNOW it's coming. Don't fret. Don't doubt. Don't even consider that it's 'too big'. Cuz there ain't no such thing as "too big" when it comes to the power of All That Is. When someone asks (as they often do) "how come it's not working????", I always say, "ahhh. but it IS working. You're just not seeing it yet. You're still looking up a dark tunnel instead of down that flowing stream. Turn around. Let go of the oars (your struggle) and keep your eyes open. You ARE going to see all that magick come flyin' in. It just happens like that. Yes...

Magick happens.

So very well done, my dear one. Yes, magick (love that spelling) happens. It just does and it is just as easy to find if you look for it as the four letter word, starts with "s"... and it is a lot more fun. Keep brightening the world. Carole
