Magic is everywhere. It is all around us, in the air we breathe, in the water we drink. It is a living part of each of us, vibrating to the highest level imaginable. It is a wild and joyful energy: Magic is a celebration of life. The intellect has a hard time grasping this, because that is not it’s job. As a teacher, one of the toughest things for me to teach is the nature of magic, because to do that I have to first challenge the illusions a person has about reality itself. Not so easy.
The mind determines our perceptions of reality. Or what we believe reality to be. Beliefs are what create our experiences, whether they are based on truth or not. Take fear, for example. Fear is a belief. People think of it as an emotion, but it is actually a belief. It is an acceptance of an illusion, and by accepting the illusion as real, we lose our power to change it. Magic is an acceptance of a cosmic truth: That we are a part of a vast sentient Universe that sees us, loves us, upholds us. If we KNOW this, FEEL this, fear can gain no foothold within us.
Magic is at the heart of what we are, it is available, waiting to be accessed. But the mind fears it, because the mind is all about control. It attempts to control everything, and it does this through analysis and judgements. It believes it has the final say about what is real, and what is imaginary. Which is ironic, really, because imagination is the gateway to other realities, other dimensions, and the gateway to creativity itself. The capacity to imagine is the gateway to freedom from the limitations of mind.
One of the limitations of mind is it’s fundamental inability to grasp the true nature of Time. This is a big one. ALL TIME IS EXISTING NOW. Time is not linear. Nothing in the Universe is linear. Understanding this is the heart of magic. If we, as spiritual beings, could grasp this then any miracle is possible. Any healing, any demonstration. There is no past. There is no future. All times, all incarnations, are happening now, separated only by vibration and frequency. Knowing this is empowering, freeing, and liberating. It gives us the ability to transcend and transform any present moment earthly reality. Here’s how.
By refusing to accept any negative or harmful experience as true for us, ON A COSMIC LEVEL, we can erase it. We can wipe it out of our experience, on a soul level, as if it has never happened. Refusing to accept it is key. The moment we accept the negative belief the mind hands us as fact, we have lost the opportunity to change it, to heal it, to learn anything at all from the experience. So our first order of business is to repudiate it. Our affirmation might be: ” I reject any appearance of loss, lack, or fear in my life. They have no place in my consciousness. I know I am one with the Divine, which flows like a river of light through me now. I know that in every moment I am being guided and upheld by this unchanging principle, which is Divine Love and Divine Perfection. I claim my rightful place in this magical Universe, and I live as I was always meant to live: Strong, free, and filled with joy. This is the only truth that I accept. All false appearances that are contrary to this truth are now released, through my word. I am blessed with a perfect demonstration now.”
** A word here about “erasing” things like death, aging, or trauma. How can we erase the death of a loved one, as if it had never happened, for instance? When I say we can wipe it out of our experience, what this means is that our healing becomes about a deeper understanding about what we are, and what our loved one is. Eternal. We are not this body. There is no death of the soul. The body can age, become injured, suffer abuse or trauma. The body dies. None of this touches the divinity within us. Tapping into this divinity allows us to heal the grief of loss, the shock of trauma, and the physical manifestation of illness or injury. It is no longer in existence as a part of the soul’s experience. That is what alchemy means. We have taken a negative and painful experience and transformed it into something entirely different. The soul is eternal, as is love. The bonds of love that connect us continue, they are unbreakable.
There is only one fact worth believing, and that is this: We live in a magical Universe. Magic is real. Miracles happen every day. We can have everything we imagine. We just need to restore the mind to it’s rightful place as a valued servant, rather than the bully and tyrant it can become, without supervision. We need to engage and empower the Right brain, the seat of imagination and creativity. This is the heart of magic. Live in the Eternal Now, reclaiming your birthright as a child of the Universe, a being of immense power, immense love. Accept the truth of who you are. Surround yourself with people who get you, and who embrace their own magic, as well. There is no place in our experience for the negative, or for fear. There is only this: Love. Magic. Miracles. Truth. Freedom. Blessings, Judith
