“I need the memory of magic if I am ever going to conjure magic again.” ― Robert McCammon
When you’re on the frequency of joy and gratitude, the universe is free to line things up, work things out, pull rabbits out of hats.
But most of us, instead of staying on that clear, sweet channel where magic happens, hit a bump in the road and immediately start worrying, start dredging up past times when things didn’t work out. In other words, we create static.
We create a resonant field that blocks the magical realm that’s always working things out for us.
My friend Jay told a great story last night that perfectly illustrates what can happen when we don’t put up that wall, when we don’t create static in our frequency.
He had accidentally left his garage door opener in a rental car. He called the rental agency only to find out they’d already rented out that car. And, no, they hadn’t noticed the door opener.
He could have gotten frazzled. Especially since he was due to meet a friend for lunch and had also left his credit card at a bar that wouldn’t be open for three more hours. On top of all that, his four-year-old son Emmett picked that particular time to pitch a fit.
Jay knelt down, calmly dealt with Emmett and felt nothing but love and gratitude. Even for the now-missing garage door opener and the credit card he needed to pay for lunch.
“I don’t know why, but I just stayed grateful, trusted that all was going to be well,” Jay said.
He stopped at the bank to retrieve some cash (since his card was MIA) and there sitting in the parking lot was the very car in which he’d left the garage door opener. An older gentleman was standing outside of it, talking on his phone.
Jay asked, “Is that your car?”
“It’s my son’s. He’s in the bank.”
Jay explained what happened and asked if he could take a peek inside.
With garage door opener in hand, Jay got a hit to go ahead and run by the bar, even though it wasn’t scheduled to open until 3 p.m.
Sure enough, the owner was sitting outside, also on his phone.
“You’re really lucky,” he told Jay. “I usually don’t get here for two more hours. But I was waiting for my carpet cleaner.”
Jay, of course, knew it wasn’t luck. Just further proof that magic is always afoot…as long as we don’t create “problems” to block it.
