What does magic mean to you? Is it something pretend, fake, unreal or impossible? Is it things appearing before your eyes with no logical, scientific explanation? Is it the joy of you receiving things apparently from nowhere? For example, how many times have you thought about someone and then they walked around the corner or phoned you? How often have you imagined you'd like something, and then you saw it in a shop or it arrived on your doorstep? How did you explain that? As a coincidence? Crime fiction fans know there is no such thing as a coincidence. What if the magic of magic lay in your willingness to receive it? If you say it doesn't exist, you are right. If you say it's not logical or scientific, you are right. If you receive it joyfully, you are right. If you'd like more impossible, non-existent stuff to show up in your life, ask “What magic can I create today?” What if magic was simply “ask and receive”? What would you ask for?
Indeed. This has far too many exclamation marks to be a question. So let's call it a demand. And let's talk about fun. How much do you have? What about the people you hang out with? Work? Family life? Is it all fun, or at least have fun bits to it? Whatever the case, would you like to increase your life's fun factor? Assuming you said yes, start by asking “What can I add to my life to make it more fun?”, “How much fun can I have today?” and “What will it take for more fun people to come and play?” Then make the demand “Fun! Fun! Bring it on!” What makes you laugh? Doing something silly like skipping around your desk or wiggling your bottom? Being told a lame joke? Jamming on the ukelele and singing too loudly (um, OK, that's me). Baking a cake? Getting a massage? Buying shoes? Lifting heavy weights? Whatever that is for you, are you willing to demand more? Go on. I dare you.
How often do you ask for what you'd really like? All the time? Sometimes? Almost never? And how much of what you'd really like do you have in your life right now? A lot? A little? Almost nothing? Do you see the connection? Don't ask, don't get. What stops you from asking for what you'd like? Do you think it's selfsh? Tat there's not enough to go around and you should give up your bit (whatever that is) for someone else? That you don't deserve it? Tat you don't need to ask for anything from anyone? Tat people should know what you want? Something else? Are these true? Or are they interesting points of view you bought from someone, sometime? One of the truths of the universe is “Ask and you will receive.” So if you don't have the life you'd truly like right now, are you willing to start by asking for it?
