Making Room for Magic

"When you shift the energy in your environment, it can have a mystical effect on your life." - Denise Linn

Jamie at Soul Coaching, said, "I am making room for magic!" And it gave me goosebumps. Big ones. I have been FULL of goosebumps over the past few days. I had goosebumps as I sat and watched from a different country as a nation and a world began to hope again. I got goosebumps as I watched an interview with a 107 year old man. He is one of only 4 remaining British survivors of World War One. I got goosebumps when I realized last night that I had not turned on the television numbly, but had curled up with a book instead. I got goosebumps when I re-read the comments from my last few posts and from the posts of some of the other participants on this journey. I got goosebumps when I signed in at work with my married name for the first time. I got goosebumps when I realized that as Air Week comes to a close, I can hear a near gale-force wind blowing outside of my flat. I just got goosebumps before I wrote this as I realized that I have been PAYING ATTENTION - and so have all of you! We have been paying attention to our lives in a way that is creating magic and miracles.

Today the journey is about lightening up - and I can feel it! I can feel a lightening in the air (maybe not in the gale force wind!) and in my surroundings. "With everything I release, more energy/ love/ abundance comes my way."

Today I am tackling my in boxes - all of them! Roar! What clutter are you tackling today?

I can feel the magic and the lightening up too, and it feels great! I cleaned my bathroom yesterday and today the kitchen is in for it!

I got goosebumps reading your post. I feel like I can tackle anything! Thank you so much! You are an amazing beacon of hope!

Jamie said...

Cheers to goosebumps! What a great signal our body gives us that something amazing is going on here.

I'm really excited that you're cleaning your inboxes. Imagine the magic you're making room for there!

big hugs,

Instead of goosebumps, for me it's been tears. I hope that it is, as you say, that I am becoming more aware and paying attention. It is easy to get caught up in the tasks of the day and forget to listen to our souls.

I love opening your blog every day and seeing your smiling, welcoming face and the English seaside.

Good for you.
I tackled some mental clutter today. I don't think I made much progress - but I did recognize its existence. It's a start!

Thank you for pointing out how we are all paying attention, and the magic in that attention. It's true. That was the source of the lightness I felt today, though I hadn't really put my finger on it. There is something so beautiful about the wind these days. I think it has just been slowing down enough to hear it, and opening up enough to share it.

What a lovely post.

Goosebumps! Exactly! I get goosebumps every time I think of Obama being President. You are dead on. It's such a time of hope...of a renewal of hope. What a beautiful beautiful time.

My mom just gave me a book that my cousin wrote about putting wishes out there. I haven't had a chance to pick it up yet but am really looking forward to digging into it. The book is called, "The Wishing Year" and her name is Noelle Oxenhandler. I'll let you know when I get into it how it is.
