Believing in magic
Why should you believe?
Why not? What have you got to lose?
Our beliefs affect how we look at and what we see in life. It is common knowledge that where we put our attention, energy flows. If we are looking for or expecting magic in our lives, then we are more likely to see it unfold. If we never look for the magic, then we are far less likely to notice it.
Many years ago, I read of an experiment (not a true scientific experiment) run by a newspaper or magazine that planted $20 on the ground and then observed and interviewed those who saw it and picked it up and those who didn’t.
Those who saw it and picked it up considered themselves lucky. Those who passed it by and were interviewed, said something along the lines of – “I am always unlucky” “I always miss out.”
What was the difference?
A belief. Same opportunity, different outcome. Belief.
To finish, Albert Einstein said it beautifully:
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
What will your choice be?
I’d love to hear below how this has this helped you experience more magic in your life.
