Today, as I was getting out of the tube, one person laid eyes on someone they knew and started waving. I could only see this person’s back, but the smile on the receiving end (the guy he was waving at) was so big it made me smile. And that’s life. It’s so beautiful when two people really appreciate one another – when they bring smiles to each other’s faces. When they share this world, so if only for a while.

Love is the key to any heart and the most important heart to open is your own. I believe that once we open our hearts what is within our hearts will come to be (if we live in accordance with our hearts) and that is beautiful. Whenever we are absolutely open and absolutely true to our hearts, the people we feel are right for us and who feel the same about us will enter. When we are with those people it’s amazing. It’s also amazing when events, and other things that resonate with our hearts suddenly appear and take us on journeys we couldn’t have imagined before, yet they always lived within us. I can’t really put it into words, recently I have just had this amazing sensation that whatever is is. Whatever is true to us, when we open our hearts, will come to be. That goes for people, events, places, everything…but I guess the most important thing is people. When you are with someone who loves you and fully accepts you for who you are, they open a space for you to do the same. You feel enveloped in light, in warmth. You feel safe.
Some people are like angels – they love you regardless of whether you are open, or closed, a nightmare, or a daydream…they just love. And slowly they teach you how to enter that place, that place of safety and warmth; of light. They teach you to love you, regardless of events, of mistakes. And once you do, you have found yourself. You are grounded, you are secure. You dare to open your heart, as the key is love and you just found it. You live on purpose, as now you can feel your purpose – your heart is open. And you love. You love endlessly…and so the gift is spread – from one heart to another…
When someone loves you, whether they have a capacity to love everyone else, or not, and are aligned with you – not just for that phase in life, or that one trait, but truly aligned with you, with your heart – then it’s something else. Then it’s magic. Then it’s like finding a missing piece of the puzzle, or a twin soul, or a friend that feels like they have always lived in your heart, long before you met…in this lifetime. Those people are rare. Treasure them like you do the sunset – every day it brings beautiful light and colors, but you never know if you will see it again. You will always carry its beauty with you though. It is part of you. Part of your soul. And I don’t know how you know it, but you do, especially if you are open.
I believe it’s essential for happiness to love. Love what you do, who you are, who you are with and the world as a whole. We were not put here for an easy ride. The only thing that makes it worthwhile is love – the love we experience through our five senses when they (the senses that is) encounter things they resonate with, the love we feel when we create what we resonate with (purpose/passion/work/creative outlet) and the love we experience through our sixth sense; the love we feel in our heart for people who resonate with us, whether they are physically next to us, or we just carry their spirit in our heart. If they are still here in one shape, or form, or another it’s sometimes like a flutter goes through our heart when they think of us, or long for us, or just love us. Sometimes we feel them within us. Sometimes we speak their minds. There is a connection that is beyond words; beyond explanation.
Love is wonderful. It’s the softest, yet strongest emotion of all. Maybe it’s more than an emotion. Maybe it just encompasses all. Maybe it is all.
Magic is a word used for many things; for playing tricks on people, for beauty, for pleasure, for illusion, for things we cannot understand…and…for magic. For spells, for herbal formulas, for energy transformations…for believing in something and making it a reality simply by “putting it out there.” I don’t know about you, but tonight, Easter night, I’d like to believe in magic. In putting an intention out there and making it a reality. On the night of dawn I’d like to start a new beginning…and may you all find what you look for in your heart…
So I walked into a Magic Shop today. Couldn’t really resist. Something to do with men in black top hats and understanding the mind, with an added dash of mystery. The combination leaves me…dazzled. As it’s in the middle of the night over here, I will once again steal a piece of magic from my favorite magician…another time I may share some more insights into the world of delirium and fantasy that I have discovered…I have every intention of one day becoming a member of the Magic Castle and sneaking into their library that’s only for professional magicians…I mean, I’ll use a trick or two to get there…
So if you don’t know my favorite pick-up line by now…well, I guess think again…
When was the last time you had a magical moment in your life? When was the last time it just happened? Like you went for a random drink with a friend and it turned out to be a magical night, or something else just happened to you? When was the last time you chose to create a magical moment? Like you made someone breakfast in bed, swept them off to a romantic weekend in the country/city or just led them blindfolded into a room where a surprise awaited?
I promised a few weeks back to post photos of the gifts myself and my best friend were going to give each other for Easter (under five bucks/quid). As it turned out we got caught up in things over Easter, but still kept our promise. I decided to buy her something to bring back from London instead. I knew she wanted to come with me, so I figured I’d bring back something truly London. What’s more London than creamed tea? I was on a budget, as was the deal, so I had to be creative. I was given a small jar of jam at Costa for free (she loves small jars), I filled one empty jar that I had with some of my raw honey, I brought her back some Pukka Tea and I bought her a Pashmina scarf in Covent Garden in her fav color that matches her eyes. Of course I also made her a card. Then I served it all as a breakfast surprise this morning. She was well pleased =)
What did she give me? A chicken egg cup, incense, incense holder and wooden cutlery to bring with me to stop wasting plastic when eating take-aways, all lovely presented in a bag =)
I truly believe life is meant to be lived to the full and I think that sometimes magic happens to you, but the more you aim at creating it, the more sure you can be of getting some. Of course, sometimes it doesn’t always go as planned – the hot dinner is slowly getting cold as the person you were trying to surprise did not show up – or worse: s/he showed up with a headache and sour outlook. However, there are things you can predict a bit better, i.e. you can check in advance.
Magic means different things at different times: Sometimes it’s just as simple as being present to someone: Look them in the eye and listen to every word they say, figure out who they are and give them your all in that moment. Sometimes it’s working out what would be the most perfect gift for someone, what that person would truly enjoy and give it to them. Sometimes it’s as easy (or hard) as a compliment. Sometimes it’s a hand written letter (I love them, feel free to write me =) Sometimes it’s to take a day off and do something spectacular, or really simple. Sometimes it’s to lock yourself up with a good book and chocolate. Sometimes it’s to hold someone. Sometimes it’s to do something for someone. And sometimes, sometimes it’s just a smile…
Tomorrow we are going for a picnic by the sea. You can bring a blanket and a take-away, or you can bring something a tad more original and fun. Life is your canvas and you are the painter.
If you’ve ever had a magical moment, or you have ideas for one, please share! =)
