This week’s positive word
on our A-Z Inspirational Journey …
M is for
Do you remember being a child and believing in magic?
Do you remember your imagination being stretched so far that anything was possible?
There were no limits …
Do you remember that feeling? Imagine how it would feel to have that feeling again.
As we become adults we are filled with norms and expectations of society that we are suppose to adhere to. Unfortunately magic isn’t one of the norms. In adulthood we describe events as coincidences. But what if you were to look deeper into these coincidences? What if you were to analysis these coincidences and really think about how they happened and why they happened? What if I told you they weren’t coincidences … they were magic? Don’t stop reading and think I’ve completely lost it … really think about life’s coincidences and ask yourself why.
This week’s therapeutic creative writing exercise, let’s look at coincidences that may have happened in your life
Take ten minutes (or longer if you can) to think about ‘coincidences’ that have happened in previous years, incidents that have sent you down a particular route. Have a think about the reasons these incidents may have happened …
Take one of the coincidences that has been significant in your life, something that really got you thinking about ‘fate’ – a chance meeting with someone, a job offer, an incident that saved your life.
Write this coincidence down, describe in detail what happened: Read below and answer some of the questions and add to your writing anything that will help you get a better picture of this coincidence.
Think about the people you’ve met because of this coincidence. Have they stayed by your side? Or did they just flit through? Some may have passed through for a short while, while others have stayed by your side through thick and thin. Just because someone doesn’t stay in your life for a long period of time it doesn’t mean they weren’t meant to be there … they were there for a reason. A magical reason to help you on your path. Whether it was a good or bad experience there will be a lesson to be learnt.
Let’s move onto another writing exercise: Think about the people who have entered into your life. Think initally about those who have passed through – write down their names if you have time, then write a reason as to what you gained from that relationship, what lessons have been learnt? Now look at the people in your life at the moment and write down those that are closest to you. Think about the magic that surrounds your relationship with them. Write a paragraph on each person. Think about your magical relationships. How did you meet? What have you experienced together? How have you both supported each other? Write all this down and truly feel the magic that has happened in your life. It’s a wonderful feeling to value the magic in a relationship. True friendship is one of the most magical things you can experience, so don’t ever take for granted true friends.
Some people believe in logic, but those who believe in magic will experience are more fulfilling life, a life of limitless possibilities and opportunities. Once you believe in the magic, you carry that around inside of you, projecting it our like a sparkling trail. An amazing feeling that you are being protected and there is a higher purpose. Our time here is magical, it should be our job to spread that magic wherever we go.
In the words of Roald Dahl …
So start believing in magic and watch miracles happen. It’s actually very exciting when you realise that magic does exist, and by believing you can make it happen.
Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always
