In July, I had the extreme pleasure of spending a week with some incredible students during the Advanced Vibrational Techniques in the New Plane retreat. It was an amazing week that was full of fun and laughter, mutual love and respect as well as giving and receiving as we stepped into the New Vibrations and learned a new way of Being in these new times.
It was also a week of wonder and I was reminded every single minute of the day, how we are surrounded by magic, that we just don’t realise.
Just to give you an example, whilst in Mt Shasta, a student and I went to these lovely water falls in the forest. It was an amazing place. This first photo shows what we saw with our naked eyes.
Then, my camera captured these photos of the same waterfall.
Each person interprets and receives the frequencies carried in these images in their own way, according to their individual resonance. I summarise all these interpretations into one word – Magic – and is everywhere around and within us.
During the course, the one thing that we all realised deeply is that in the world we normally live in, we have blinders and are unaware of the intangible around us. In reality, however – ‘I AM’ Surrounded by Magic.
‘I AM’ is the most subtle part within us, the most intangible, and the most magical. There is magic within all of us…. and when we tap into and embody it, the world reflects the magic from our Essence. Amazing synchronicities occur around us.
For example, when my husband and I moved homes, we knew we had a lovely patio in the back garden that we could use when the weather is nice, and enjoy alfresco meals. We met our new neighbours and saw that they had a specific type of garden furniture that we wanted. We made the intention to purchase a set as soon as we could, after we had set up our home. The next day was beautiful, and as I was preparing dinner, I told my husband “Wouldn’t it be nice to have the furniture so we could have dinner outside.”
Five to ten minutes later, there was a knock at the door. I answered it, and there was a lovely man who said “Hello. I have this ‘specific’ outdoor furniture and as it is a display set, you could have it at a third of the price.”
I stood there for a second, gawking at him, hardly believing my ears. Then, this poor bewildered man took a step back as I asked him, very excitedly and passionately, who informed him that we wanted this exact furniture, and if our neighbours called him. He stammered and stuttered, that he occasionally came to the area and sold Display furniture door to door – this time it happens to be an entire suite of the specific furniture we require. My husband gave it his approval, after thoroughly looking over the quality of the suite.
That evening, we enjoyed our dinner, outside on the patio, with our new garden furniture.
‘I AM’ Surrounded by Magic.
These are but two of the examples of how magical the world is around us. There is magic within and around us all the time. Our Essence is the most magical part
of us, yet the most quiet, and subtle. However, if we can silence our thoughts
and emotions, stay centred and mindful, we will be able to hear and embody ‘I AM’ a lot more. When we embody and believe in the magic of ‘I AM’, our world will reflect the magic all around us.
‘I AM’ Surrounded by Magic.
The expression ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ is all too familiar. For some reason, we either get bored and / or start taking for granted what we have, what’s closest to us and what we are used to – including our possessions, our relationships, our work, our health, and especially ourselves.
Our relationship to ourselves is the oldest, closest, most familiar relationship that we have. When I say ‘ourselves’, I mean in all our forms – ‘I AM’, soul, emotional, mental, physical, ego selves. Some of our parts are more transient, and some are more eternal, but they make up the WHOLE of us. Being the most familiar to ourselves, over time we have taken ourselves for granted – sometimes just a few choice parts, and sometimes our WHOLE.
‘I AM’ a Miracle
Most of us have forgotten that we are a miracle of life. We have focused so much on the Doing, that we take for granted that our BEING is one of the greatest miracles.
One day, I decided to look into the mirror and really stare at myself, consciously and with awareness. It is a little daunting to do, but over time, it got easier. In a mirror, I saw a Living Being, who breathes oxygen through some orifices on her face, called a nose, to a pair of lungs, whose mass of muscles, called the heart, pumps life giving red liquid, called blood, via a highway system through the body called arteries, carrying this chemical oxygen all over the body – to live. I perform this complex set of activities multiple times a second, without consciously thinking about it. I have hundreds of other systems like this, pistoning through the body, at all hours, enabling me to BE… and to do. This is just my physical parts.
Add to the fact that I have my mental, emotional, ego, soul and ‘I AM’ parts, all working a multitude of systems at the same time – without a doubt, ‘I AM’ a Miracle.
Then, I consciously looked at my husband, my dogs, the trees and blooms in my garden, the animals in the farms around me, all with their multiple parts and system working hard together, symbiotically with one another and with myself – and I thought ‘WE ARE’ all Miracles.
The Seat of ‘I AM’ holds our divine part within ourselves – our God Selves. We keep exalting divinity and God on the outside, yet keep neglecting to exalt ourselves, as we are also divine.
When and why did I forget? When and why did our way of life cheapen our own Existence in exchange for our labour, and successes through what we do? How did we ever reduce our worth to the success of our doing, and our value to some arbitrary monetary system?
‘I AM’ a Miracle.
Since that day with the mirror, I am slowing reminding myself that I AM a Miracle. No matter what I have accomplished during the day, I still remind myself my very Being and Existence is miraculous.
Slowly I AM beginning to appreciate myself, my and everyone’s Being …
‘We Are’ All Miracles.
