People often ask me how I live such a magical life. It’s easy. I believe in magic.

HA! The song “Do You Believe in Magic” by the The Lovin’ Spoonful just ran through my head. But I digress – or do I? Actually that flash of music just proved my point. What you believe in is brought unto your experience, magically.

Your beliefs form reality. Therefore, it is essential to look and speak in the direction of your dreams. Pay attention to what you think and say in a given day. Do you spend your day envisioning the outcome, the life you long to experience or do you spend your day wrapped in a blanket of reasons and excuses why you can’t or aren’t being, doing or having what you want in life? How often do you complain?

If your vision, thoughts and conversations are grounded in the belief that you can absolutely create what you want to experience then it’s only a matter of time before you actualize that desire. On the other hand, if you limit what you see as possible for yourself and the conversations you have with yourself and others supports that limitation then you will absolutely actualize that limited experience. Without exception.

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Now the intensity of a belief is extremely important. How strong, how much energy you give to your beliefs has a direct correlation to how quickly they manifest.

For example, if you believe that people mean you well, and will treat you kindly, they will. And, if you believe that the world is against you, then that will be in your experience. And, if you believe that you will get the swine flue or at least get sick, then so you shall.

The same is true about your beliefs and relationship around money. If you believe that you are a starving artist and always will be, then your experience will always be that of a starving artist. Your beliefs meet you in the face when you look in the mirror. Think of the many times your expectations have come to slap you in the face. Beliefs form your image. You cannot escape your beliefs. They are, however, the method by which you create magic, the experiences you desire.

It is important that you here realize that you are not at the mercy of what cannot be explained. You are not a victim of events over which you have no control whether those events are emotional or physical. Most importantly, there is little difference if you believe that your present life is caused by the events of your childhood which you feel you have no control. Your events, your lives, your experiences, are caused by your present beliefs. You cannot change the events of your childhood but you can change what you have those events mean about who you are and how you feel.

When you examine the events of your life now and in the past you have an opportunity to discover new perspectives that will allow you to change your beliefs about those very same experiences. Change the beliefs and you change your story, your vision of what’s possible and the conversations you have with yourself and others. When you change the beliefs you have about you and your world your life magically changes.

“That’s the thing with magic. You’ve got to know it’s still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible for you.” – Charles de Lint
