I get asked a lot, “How do I get Magic?” Magic is not something you get. We all have magic. It is just how aware you are of your magic. Magic is something you continue to develop. Think of a battery and how much charge it has. It depends on how much charge you have in your battery. Magic is something you already have, it just needs to be developed and as you develop it your charge goes up. Most people won’t evolve their magic because they are afraid of how they will look to others. Fear of failing or looking bad is ultimately what stops magic.
Our fear keeps us from becoming great Witches or Wizards. A person will put a lot of pressure on themselves. They think they have to look good for those close to them or be perfect for them. Can’t let others down if you don’t take a chance or try something new. Won’t have others think Im weird if I do something outside of the box.
Negative thoughts, being afraid and doubt are all part of being human. Eighty percent of our thoughts are negative. The reason for this is our brain is just seeking to keep us alive. It’s not worried about doing something different or excellent. It just wants to keep you alive, so thinking negatively is your minds default mode. Our mind has gotten us this far through a very negative history, so it is helpful in many situations. All of that stuff that you are feeling and thinking is normal. It’s all part of being human. There is nothing wrong with you. It does not matter how old you are. It is part of being human. Now that you know this, you can change it.
Magic is like anything else, you have to put the time in. Just like in order to make your body stronger you have to do the work. It’s the same with the mental. I get people telling me that they saw a motivational video or read a motivational book and that should be enough. That is like going to a gym, looking around and watching others workout. Then in 30 days wondering why you are not getting stronger. It’s because you are not doing the work. Most of us have weak minds, but the good news is we can train our minds to be strong. But you have to do the work. When you first start out its going to feel clumsy, you won’t get it and it will be hard, but then bit by bit you will get it.
Some people will tell me they are too shy to do magic. I used to be very shy too. I didn’t like being shy. It held me back. What helped me was during my Mystery School my teacher asked me, “Are you shy around your parents? Are you shy around your good friends? Are you so shy that when you take a shower you have to cover yourself up to keep from seeing yourself?” I answered, “No”. He made me realize, Im not always shy. Just shy in certain situations. So now I developed not being shy bit by bit. Slowly taking steps towards talking to people and being myself in front of others I did not know.
Magic is not about positivity. There is no east way to lollipops and rainbows. You can not just sit and think positively and believe in the law of attraction. You can not just think everything is going to go your way. It is so much more than that. It’s understanding that most of our thoughts are negative, understanding that you have to put the work in, understanding that it depends on each situation and understanding that it’s something you build. I’m so sick of all these self help gurus and speakers telling everyone to think positive. They simply have it wrong. All those positive and motivational videos and books will make you feel good for about 10 minutes. They are like sugar or a caffein rush for your mind. It takes you really high temporality and then you crash. If you have a bad day or something bad happens to you then you can’t just think positively out of it. You have to analyze it and take corrective action. Life is hard. Thinking positively will not make it easier. Life is like a game. Whenever you play it you don’t know what is going to happen and that makes it exciting. Sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it goes against you. You just find a way and that keeps building you and building you and that makes you better.
Magic will not keep you from avoiding mistakes. Magic will not make you perfect. You will keep making mistakes. You have to accept that. Most will not learn from their mistakes and that keeps their magic low. No ones life is perfect. Mistakes are part of the life. Once you make a mistake you are a different person. Your approach toward the mistake will be very different. It is all about your reaction to the mistake. Michael Jordan made a lot of baskets, but did you know he missed more than he made. If he reacted badly to his missed shots, do you think he would have been the superstar that he was? No of course not. He never dwelled on the missed shots. When I coach my daughter in soccer I tell her, “Its okay to make mistakes. We are not robots”. If you didn’t make mistakes you would not be human. Magic helps your reaction to those mistakes. Once you get that down you will have confidence. Confidence is not arrogance. Confidence is believing in yourself.
Being vulnerable is not being weak. You’re human. Being open to people does not make you weak. It makes you human. The greatest leaders in the world show you their human side. It does no mean they are weak. In this world if you show vulnerability, people will jump on you. You do not need to be The Terminator! When you see someones social media, you are only seeing ten percent or less of their life. They only post the perfect stuff. They never show you anything real or vulnerable. It is very important you recognize that. They do not have it together. Everyone has bad things happening. Competition is so engrained in us. Our minds just want us to stay alive. So we post the stuff that keeps our ego alive. On the flip side when we see others post their perfect life we feel it negatively effects us because we are not perfect. Get off social media. We are human no one is perfect and the greatest Witches and Wizards show their vulnerability.
Magic is not only for leaders or only for the occult. The whole idea for magic is you become the leader of your own destiny or the leader of your own life. There are all kinds of leaders of this world. Magic is for everyone. It helps you lead your own life and develop your skills in your way. Magic is all about perspective. Magic will help you see it from all perspectives. Like Yoda says in Star Wars, “Do. Or do not. There is no try”. That is so important. Be creative and do. I also tell my daughter what Ford said, “Whether you say you can do it or you can’t do it, you are right”. Will you do or do not magic? It’s all up to you. You are Glorious!!! We are who we have been waiting for!!!!
