Everyday Magic

Cold Spring Harbor, July 2008
I do believe in an everyday sort of magic... the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence when we think we are alone. 
-- Charles de Lint

"I often have extraordinary experiences wherein I sense that something important or meaningful is happening.  The more I do whatever I feel called to do in the moment, the more this sort of thing tends to happen.  This is how the universe aligns us with the information, connections and experiences we most need; it nudges us to get up and go somewhere, to open up to a stranger, to suddenly reach out.  The more we listen to these nudges, the more amazing synchronicities bless us with an extraordinary, mystical sort of journey." -- Julia Melges-Brenner, editor of Kajama.

Intuition is really a sudden immersion of the soul into the universal current of life. -- Paul Coelho

"When people first attempt to develop their psychic abilities, they are often tripped up by a tendency to try to think their way to answers instead of vibrationally aligning with guidance and allowing it to flow in.  When we are stuck in logic, our own thoughts are so incessant that they prevent us from hearing the voice of spirit; when we relax and open our whole being to guidance, insights naturally begin to bubble up from within." -- Julia Melges- Brenner, editor of Kajama

Relax.  This is a test.  This is only a test.
Had this been a real life you would have been given instructions and told what to do.

A card that was taped to my door.  It suddenly won't stay in place.
It just keeps falling on the floor.
OK, OK... I get it.  I hear you!

As a true artist, I am a person committed to living the essence of a creative life.  Simply put, I must always stay in the Flow.  The flow of Life Force Energy.  It means surrendering. It means believing that everything is both "destined" and "in genesis" at every moment.  It means trusting in the unseen.  It means living in a state of grace.  It means always moving forward.  It means allowing things to unfold.

This commitment is the greatest commitment any human being could ever make.  It is a commitment to Life.  It is the greatest leap of faith, the greatest show of trust and the most powerful, intoxicating ride you could ever experience.

It's not always easy.  And it is not an event or a one-time choice.  By nature of it's meaning, It's a LIFE-style.

What sustains me?  Every day magic.  Ordinary miracles.  Clarity.  Synchronicity.  Signs.  Second chances.  Major shifts.  Vibrational alignments.  Sudden endings.  New beginnings.  Insight.  Intuition.  Knowing.

Buckle up, baby.  It's all happening.


PS... congratulations to my dear Protege'.  It came to be!  Witnessing your journey tested me to live my faith in action.  I am so proud of you.  Bliss!
