All of us are prone to “magical thinking”. We believe that if we put on the cape we can fly, if we lose 20 pounds we will be happier, younger and surrounded by lovers, if we look the part we become the part, and if we somehow end up in another “dimension” that all of our current challenges will vanish.
Real magic happens when you believe you can fly. No one has to tell you the truth of who you are. You know this. It is the power of this illusion that invokes recurring forgetfulness.
One of my children, at about 9 years of age, wrote a comic strip. In the first panel was a boy in a cape, announcing his super flying powers. In the next panel he climbs the roof and jumps off. In the third panel he shouts “See! I’m flying!” It is the next panel where doubt crosses his face and he says, while flying, “I’m flying! I can’t believe it!” In the final panel, he slowly crashes to earth.
This is how we live our lives. Over and over we wish for change and even as it occurs, we doubt it. Actual change occurs gradually and starts within. I am sort of a Queen of Magic. My friends say I have rose colored glasses. I see the best possible scenario most every time. This may be because I’ve had so many chances; this lifetime has been a remedial class for self improvement. I’m getting better at it. It’s always going to be great in my heart.
We are in a sea of waiting, floating along on rafts of hope. We need to jump in and swim in the direction of whatever beach works for us. This drifting is not getting us anywhere.
Every day, as I peruse the news, there are three camps. In one there are reports of authorities and groups bringing corruption to light. In another there are channels for celestial and galactic beings saying either “Don’t worry” or “We can’t help you until you ask”. In a third there is a constant debate about when it’ll happen, if it’s going to happen, and how it’ll happen if it does.
This change is not something that happens when you are given a cape or witness an arrest. This change with all of its supporting effects will conclusively happen when it begins within. We have to turn on the light that we are.
Who are you in the next “dimension”, the one without criminal control and corruption? You are a being of light, eternally vibrant, joyfully exuberant, and gushing with love. Opinion doesn’t matter to you, you know who you are and no words or laws can diminish your light. You walk with confidence, ever hopeful. You appreciate diversity and collaboration. All others are important and impact your decisions. You eat, move, walk and talk with confidence. You are a divine spark of pure love. You are lesser than none.
You believe you are light. This is not a wish, it is a knowing. This is who you see yourself as. You are not waiting to be turned on – you have one setting and it is “brilliant”.
A vibrant light being does not wait to be taken care of or fixed. Expect health, vitality, prosperity and love. Consider what is before you right now and if it does not suit a master such as yourself, decide what does. Then make it happen.
This will eventually encompass every part of your life and our planet. For today, start where you are. Are your shoes working for you? How about your breakfast? In every aspect of your life there are two choices of focus – love or fear. Ask yourself, “Am I doing, thinking or saying this because I’m afraid of what will happen if I don’t?” Or, “Am I doing, thinking or saying this because I love myself?” Your heart will beat your answer.
Believe the light that you are and our world will transform. We will naturally, gently and perfectly morph from separate frightened individuals to one powerful light; each of us shining out love.
You have only to accept the truth of your divinity. Your light will guide you the rest of the way. Waiting is not necessary. The “on” switch is in your hand.
We are the ones we are waiting for.
