Can Short Inspirational Poems Bring Magic Into Your Life?
Can short inspirational poems bring magic into your life?You bet they can. Consider this one from Samuel Taylor Coleridge:
What If You Slept?
What if you slept… And what if… In your sleep… You dreamed…
And what if… In your dream… You went to Heaven,
And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower…
And what if… When you awoke… You had the flower in your hand…
Ah, what then?
Thank you, Mr. Coleridge, for this wonderful example of how short inspirational poems can open the door to more magic in our lives.
I’ve had magical experiences in my life, and I know you’ve had them in yours.
Sometimes we don’t even remember them. They tended to happen more often when we were younger, when we didn’t know they were impossible.
But the more we allow the magic in, even as adults, the more we can have of those inspirational moments in our adult life as well.
Let me tell you about something that happened to me in San Diego County, California. I was out hiking one day. As I walked along a mountain trail I looked down, and there I saw a bluebird feather. I bent down to pick it up, and continued on up the trail to the top of the hill with the feather in my hand. I kept turning it over in the sunlight, admiring it. It was so beautiful!
I arrived at last at the top of the hill, where I found a big flat rock at the edge of a little pool of water. It was a warm day, and I was tired. I lay down on the rock, stretched out with the sun shining full on me, laid that little bluebird feather down next to my hand, and dozed off.
When I awoke and reached out for the bluebird feather, it wasn’t there. However, in its place were TWO bluebird feathers, hooked together!
This couldn’t be. It was impossible.
And yet, I know it happened. I still have those two bluebird feathers! I saved them as a memento of that experience. Sometimes, if we have a memento of a magical experience we will actually allow ourselves to know that it was REAL.
In the absence of tangible evidence, the brain tends to dismiss these magical occurrences. There’s no drawer for them in the file cabinet of Western reality. I might have told a friend about it, and shared a good laugh. “Oh, that couldn’t have happened, it’s not possible,” we would say. Pow! Dismissed.
But that little bit of magic really happened. I still have the evidence.
Would you like to experience more magic in YOUR life? What if you were to stop filtering the incredible, unbelievable experiences out of your conscious awareness?
One way to make that more likely would be to deliberately tune into short inspirational poems on a regular basis. In the morning, in the afternoon, whenever you need a lift.
The filtering happens because we were fed a story about what is and is not real, and, being impressionable, we bought that story. The great thing is that today, quantum physics is making it obvious (to all who are ready to see) that reality is not “out there” at all, but “in here”!!
Quantum physics shows us that reality materializes when expectation meets potential. In other words, we create our reality by what we imagine to be possible. Not just you and I, though we are part of it, but the collective consciousness of all humanity, taken together.
And so… I invite you to allow more magic into your life. To that end, I offer you two free gifts:
The first free gift will help you open to the magic of getting your heart story out and into a book you can share with others. To receive this gift, either put your email address in the yellow box at the top of the right sidebar or click on the orange chicklet under it to subscribe in a reader.
The second free gift is The 21-Day “I AM a Gift to the World” Challenge, compliments of my friends Robert and Terri TallTree. The 21-Day Challenge will give you a wonderful experience of opening to the deeper aspects of who you are and to what is possible in your life. To receive this gift, go to writeyourwaytoprosperity.com/21challenge.
Quantum physics tells us that a change in the spin pattern of an electron in one place on the earth is always accompanied by an equal change in the spin pattern of a paired electron in a faraway location.
I choose to let that mean that everything we do makes a bigger difference than we can imagine. By opening to more magic in our lives, we are helping all humanity to open to greater magic.
And that has to be a good thing, don’t you think?Chiwah Carol Slater, MA Ambassador of Author’s Purpose Founder, Write Your Way to Prosperity Founder, Word Weaver 4 U WriteYourWaytoProsperity.com WordWeaver4U.com
