The beauty of a fairy tale is that we are conditioned to expect magical things to happen. When I was a teacher I used to encourage my students to re-write the endings of famous stories and fairy tales in order to encourage their creativity. I wonder what would happen if we promoted that same magical thinking and creativity to flow in our real lives ~ could we release the doubt and fear that keep us from dreaming big and expecting wonderful things to manifest for us?
My own life has taught me that when I truly ~ and I mean with every fiber of my body, mind and heart ~ truly relax and let go of being attached to the outcome ~ when I make peace with what is ~ when I drop any resistance to the way things have been going ~ magic happens! Situations turn around, people become more cooperative, opportunities present themselves...as if my fairy godmother waved a magic wand and made it happen!
So, I'd like to begin writing a new fairy tale for all of us- Imagine that you, like Cinderella, have your very own fairy godmother... Wish for something and let go of having to figure out how to make it happen by yourself. Release any pre conceived doubts and just see her waving her magic wand for you. Imagine what it would feel like to live with that wish coming true. Enjoy a few minutes of pretending. When doubts creep back in, turn it all back to that sweet magical lady.
And now, go enjoy your day, expecting magic to happen!
