All Magic, All the Time
So here are some examples of how you might consciously enter into the moment and bravely experience all the blessings and beauty this life has to offer.
When you're.... you might....
Washing dishes: visualize each dish being filled with light. Say prayers and blessings of health and vitality for whomever eats off of them. Feel the warmth of the water on your hands, enjoy the scent of the soap.
Sitting on your couch or comfy chair: consciously relax all your muscles. Feel the air and fabric on your skin. Notice your breath going in and out of your lungs. Enjoy the colors around you. Consider how much you love the people who live in your house (even if it's just you). Pet your cat and marvel at what a magical creature she really is.
Grocery shopping: imagine that you are a little kid pretending to be a grown up, grocery shopping - how fun! Notice the people around you and open your heart to them. Imagine that they used to be little babies, and see them through the eyes of a mother. Enjoy the sensual experience of the produce department: the colors, textures, and scents.
Walking the dog: consider the consciousness of a tree. Contemplate the bigness of the sky, and the smallness of the planet. Listen to the wind in the leaves as if it is whispering something significant to your soul in a language beyond words, and receive the message with the part of you who understands.
