You are the magic.
There is no-one in the world like you.
No-one with your thoughts, your experiences, or your ideas and dreams.
There is no-one who sees the world exactly as you do, and that is your magic.
It’s easy to forget this magic and this unique essence that you bring to the world, as the world is always telling you who you should be, how you should think, how you should behave, even what you should dream and desire.
Society, culture, even your family, can be so adamant at the way it wants you to show up, that you can feel ‘wrong’, disconnected or rejected when you don’t conform.
But just like with an English country garden, you don’t tell the daisy off for not being as big as the sunflower.
Or demand that the honeysuckle smell like the lavender.
Or scowl when the roses bloom different colours.
We know that would be madness.
The country garden is beautiful because of the rich variety of shapes, colours, sizes, and fragrances.
Nothing is better than the other, they all bring their own beauty and magic.
You might prefer the glorious sunflower, but that doesn’t make the daisy wrong, bad or misguided.
That’s just your personal preference.
The same is true of life.
The world is much richer and more delightful when everyone shows up as their true self, in all their magnificent varieties of beliefs, thoughts, ideas, and passions.
You’re not wrong for not being like someone else.
You’re certainly not wrong for not conforming to someone else’s idea or how you should look, behave, or think.
When you find yourself doubting yourself, comparing yourself to another, or playing small to make other people feel more comfortable, it’s time for you to remember YOUR MAGIC!
9 Ways to Remember Your Magic
1. Notice what lights you up
Pay attention to your energy.
What lights you up; people places, activities. What pulls your energy forward and makes you feel expansive? Do more of those things.
2. Become more curious
There’s always more than one way to do things, there’s always more than one reason behind a behaviour. Step out of judgement and become more curious about yourself and the world around you.
3. Make the time and space to daydream
Daydreaming isn’t frivolous or wasted time. It’s a time to reconnect to your dreams, to step into a world of infinite possibility. It’s a time to give your intellect a rest, so you can reconnect to wonder and awe once more.
4. Listen for the messages
When you pay attention and consciously look for something, you begin to notice more of it (did someone say red cars! Now see how many you spot…), the same is true for your intuitive insight and nudges from the universe. When you start to look and listen for the messages, you begin to notice more of them around you.
5. Spend time in nature
When you spend time in nature, not only is it good for you on all levels of your being, but it reconnects you to the natural cycles of life. Especially if you live somewhere that has obvious seasons. It’s easier for you to understand how these natural rhythms of growth, harvest and completion show up in your life too.
6. Trust yourself
The more you can reconnect with your truth, the more you can say what you mean and do what you say, you begin to trust yourself more, as you become a person of your word – you become trustworthy. When you trust yourself more, you become less ruled by fear and the judgements of others.
7. Do things that bring you joy
Everyday do something that brings you joy. Step into the expansiveness and openness that joy brings you. If you’re stuck for ideas, think back to what your 6, 7, or 8-year old self would’ve delighted in, and then go do that.
8. Spend time with people who lift you up
It’s important to spend time with people who get you, who understand you, and who celebrate you for who you are, and not who they want you to be. Feel the love and support of people who encourage you to go after what you want in life, and who will support you through the challenges.
9. Commit to being more you
Be more you! What does it mean to be more you? How can you show up and express more of the values and the feelings that you want front and centre of your life? It’s important to be more you, so that you’re clear on who you are and what you want from life, so that you’re more resilient to other people’s judgements and expectations of you. It’s important to be more you, so that you can remember you’re you magic with certainty and clarity!
