“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”
You may be familiar with the author J.K. Rowling and her world of magic and mystery. Hogwarts and the wonderful world of Harry Potter have inspired so many kids and adults to think about the magic that is all around us every day. This quote was taken from her Harvard commencement address in 2008 and it reminds us that magic is just a state of mind. (The speech is called ‘The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination’. It’s a great read btw!)
The Webster’s Dictionary defines magic as “having seemingly supernatural qualities or powers” and “giving a feeling of enchantment”, so what does that look like to you? Have you ever attracted something or some one into your life? Have you ever been in love?
All of us have magical abilities! All of us have to power to ‘feel enchanted’. We all carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already through our imagination! We just need to acknowledge it.
So today, look for just a little magic in your life? Use your imagination to find the magic or the joy in life. For me, it’s pure magic when I can find the perfect parking spot. Maybe it’s that feeling you get when you look at the sky or your partner? Or is it the perfect meal or that song that sounds like velvet? Where is the magic in your life?
In Love and Light,
