Open you don’t up to the possibility of Magic
Keep you mind open when it comes to looking for magic in your own life. Don’t rule out the fact that even the most mundane activity can be magical. That drive to work not leaving you feeling like there are great things in store for you. Switch up your route and pay attention to new things you see. Or offer to give someone else a ride and get a new perspective on your surroundings. Magic is all around you if you just open your eyes and look around.
Seek out magic in every situation.
So you’ve opened your eyes and been unable to see magic in your everyday surroundings? Don’t worry- this is more common than you think. Some of takes a new experience, etc to help us find the magic in our lives. Go somewhere new. Look around. Place close attention. And look for little thing. If you make the effort to find magic in the world, you will be certain to discover it.Have you ever wanted something from a place of business as simple as a shirt, a book, a piece of jewelry, when you were shopping one of those items you wanted was easily found. Or even found the exact thing you had pictured in you mind. That is the magic. Or just thought how am I going to pay my phone bill and right before your phone was going to be shut off. You received the funds to pay for it? That is magic.
Be grateful for small things, big things and everything in between. Count your blessings, not your problems.
Stay focused on the present moment.
One of the biggest reasons we don’t all see more magic in our lives is because we’re not present. I realized that, if someone asked me the color of the fence down you road from me. I wouldn’t have been able to answer that question. I sometimes get on ”auto-pilot mode.” We sometimes are so used to going the same route and in the same routine we do it automatically with seeing anything. This is when we miss the magic that is right in front of us. Be present if you want to be enchanted.
Use your imagination and creativity.
People who are unimaginative are never going to see the magic in a cup of tea or the changing of the leaves from green to yellow. And that’s okay. Some people don’t want to see the magic in life- but if you’re the type the needs a little sparkle in your life- you’ve got to open mind up to more a creative way of viewing your world. Is there magic in a friends laughter? Do they make to happy? That’s magic. Is there magic in a rain-soaked morning? Imagine how the grass in going to get greener or the beautiful flowers that are going to grow. This is magic. But you must be willing to create and imagine it.
See life from a new perspective.
You know how feel when you watch a movie or read a book filled with magic. Christmas movies are my favorite, there is so much magic in them I’m in awe at the type of things someone has come up with in their mind. Think about what it is like to describe things about our lives, cars, airplanes, satellites, the amazing things people accomplish— to someone not familiar with the world. Yes, it might be science and fact but through the eyes of someone else,it would seem like magic.
When you think about it, children see magic through they’re eyes. Children don’t know about elections and gravity why things fly. Yet the see a plane in the sky and amazed. They see leaves changing color and they are awed. They see snow for the first time and are in wonder. Even a song with a catchy tune and cannot help but sing along. It’s about being to open to enchanted, about willing to become surprised by our own mundane lives.
For some this is silly. You might say “I already know how gravity works, or why the leaves change colors in the fall, or even how a computer works. Seeing the magi. In these things is Stupid.” I get that, I see how silly it might sound- me a grown woman explaining, “Find the magic!” But, to be completely honest with you, I’ve found that I’m a lot more positive- and ever more present when I’m looking for the magic in my life. When I stare in amazement when I actually have a animal in my house- another species that I totally connect with, I feel excited about life. I feel like I cannot wait to see what else I’ll uncover in this crazy world it’s worth the silliness that comes with claiming that I’m striving, everyday to find the magic in the mundane.
