I believe in magic! I have seen miracles, synchronicities, successful outcomes to spell work, and True Love!! That is all ‘blow your hair back’ magic. This article is about another kind of magic…I call it practical magic.
What is that?
It’s goal setting for something that will have a big effect on different aspects of your life. It is the opposite of just getting chores done (unless that fits into a bigger goal). So many people spend their energy working to earn money to pay bills and endlessly consume (media, clothing, meals,). If we aren’t careful we can get caught in this whirlpool of energy exchange and never actually end up swimming anywhere.
Practical magic is about being a creator rather than a consumer. Capitalist society forms us into consumers, but we can take our energy and magical souls back from the machine.
Here are some examples of practical magic:
*Track your money for a month and see where it goes. I did this and discovered I was spending $300 !! dollars per month on coffee and lunch. Now I make my lunch and coffee and have devised an envelope system to fund my dreams with that $3,600 I was spending mindlessly on consumption. Here is a link to a video I made about it. I call this Magical Budgeting.
*Learn a Language. It will save your brain and create a bridge to another culture’s reality. There are words that don’t exist in our language that exist in other languages.
*Learn an art form. Spend time creating rather than consuming and maybe even make money at it down the road.
So what is on your To-Do list? Is it a mundane list of chores? Or is it an ever increasing set of skills and experiences? Our time on this planet is short and our energy is limited. Where are you directing yours?
