Is It Magic?

When I was growing up there was little extra money in my family, and certainly not enough for things like the movies or going out with friends. Whenever I needed some cash, I’d set an amount in my mind and within a very short time, maybe a day or two, I’d get a babysitting job or some other chore for just that amount of money. I seldom had any doubt that the amount of money I wanted would come through, even if I didn’t know how it would come to me.

As I got older there were times when I just “knew” that I would find a way to go to Europe, or that Larry and I would start our married life in a foreign country. I accepted that, if I wanted something to happen in my life, an unexpected opportunity would present itself. This is not to say that my life was easy, or that I got everything I wanted. This “magic” would happen when I was in sync with the universe and when I trusted my intuition.

I was always willing to work for what I was asking; I just needed an opportunity to make it happen. I was willing to see opportunities where others may not recognize them. I also accepted that the opportunities may be from an unexpected place. The things that manifested for me never came from wishing harm for another person. I was, and am, willing to trust my intuition.

It wasn’t until my mid-thirties that I met my first esoteric teacher and began to realize that when I was manifesting I was actually working with what I call my angels and guides. They had supported me in my younger years without me even recognizing that they were in my life. I formally began learning healing work and developing my intuition to a much greater degree.

In the middle of the night in 2008 a voice came to me and said, “We will not let you make another dime until you put us at the center of your endeavor.” In the morning the same voice said, “Not one more dime!” I had been reading Tarot and giving Reiki for many years already, but always as a sideline. I realized that my way forward would be to honor spirit by making my practices the center of my livelihood.

Is what I was doing magic? Or was it just a bunch of unexplained coincidences? My sweet husband likes to call it magic.

One definition of magic from the Oxford dictionary is “the power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.” My angels and guides are my supernatural forces, and I believe that you have access to your magic through your guides.

Do you want to know how to make magic the center your life? Below is a blueprint of what has worked for me.

1. Talk to your angels and guides (or whatever you want to call them) to help you manifest what you are calling into your life.

2. Ask for what you want to call into your life and believe that it will come to you.

3. Be willing to accept the unexpected.

4. Create a short mantra to reinforce what you want to call to yourself.

In my work as an empowerment coach I’ve found the biggest detriment for people to manifest their desires is a lack of self-worth and a doubt that the universe will come through for them. My suggestion is to talk to your angels and guides and ask them to help you to manifest what is in your highest and best good.

To be in your highest and best good, you will not be coming from a place of greed, and you will not be asking to harm another. You do deserve what is best for you.
