In a meadow green

Locked in beside a stream

Sunlight smiled a dappled beam

On butterflies whose colours

Made a brilliant sheen

Ringed about by stately trees

Of Beech and Oak, Rowan and Sycamore

Standing guard upon my recumbent form

As I gazed into a glittering dawn

And whiled away the mellow hours

Dreaming dreams of colourful flowers

Which grew abundantly in this glade

Of purple and red, yellow and blue

Altogether they made a rainbow like hue

Until at last the daylight dimmed

The moon arose, the treetops rimmed

In silvery light of gossamer threads

Breaking through the canopy above my head

And still it seemed I slumbered on

The voices of my Spiritual friends,

Guides and Angels, Faerie folk and Elves

My loved ones dear, they whispered here

All night they softly murmured along

Lifting my spirit with their colourful song.

Hatred and violence, horror and war

All left behind a now shuttered door

My soul replenished, my spirit recharged

I re-enter my life filled with laughter and light

Taking my sanctuary within me

Filled with rich colours and spiritual light.

We each find the ways and means to replenish our spirit, to find the gossamer threads which hold us to each other in this world or the next.

You are welcome to share my spiritual haven. Like minded souls are always welcome.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”     Roald Dahl

.It seems that so much that was once accepted as magical has been relegated to the fancies of small children, or the excuses fictional characters use to explain the inconceivable. Losing the belief in magic and magical beings makes the world a duller and less exciting place.

If you’re an adult you have to focus on the mundane, the every day events and activities. It seems there is no time or place for the magical, mystical, inexplicable wonders which surround us. Let’s face it, the majority of people would ridicule you for merely suggesting there may be magic all around us. Well, so be it. I’m willing to say I believe in magic, in fairies, elves and unicorns. I believe in wizards, witches, spells and incantations, they are all part of every day life, if you but know it. After all, what is an incantation but an affirmation? I relish my world being brighter, more colourful and creatable by knowing I can create magic. The magic of positive thinking.

I love a quote from “Practical Magic” because it reminds me of things we used to do without thought and have fallen out of practice now.

Sally Owens: ” Can love really travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria’s curse? I’d like to think so. But there are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.”

I can remember my parents always throwing spilt salt over their shoulders – I still do it now, although I use much less salt these days! I always have rosemary near the garden gate and lavender wherever I can plant it. That doesn’t begin to mention all the other herbs we use and have forgotten the ‘old uses’ for. We are no longer taught them because times have changed and not always for the better.

How many remember the ropes of garlic always hung in the house – to keep evil at bay, usually vampires but great for colds, feverfew to help with fevers, vervain to help you sleep. chamomile to soothe and St Johns Wort for depression. In medieval days they were all thought to be magical because they had no idea how they worked. Yet today we have Flower Remedies and are turning back to homeopathic and naturopathic medicines as the natural alternative to synthetic drugs which are causing more harm than good, and also have made the bugs resistant through prolonged use.

Yet magic is more than that. Today especially I want and need to believe magic happens. Not just occasionally but all the time. I want to believe that if I believe, bring my thoughts into alignment with the greater good that I can positively effect the outcome.  I can attract positivity into my life, abundance of all kinds and have it flow on to help others.

That is magic, being able to influence the physical world around us to help others have a better life too. I’ve been called a witch before and I wasn’t happy about it. As a child it wasn’t easy to handle, but now – huh! Who cares as long as the outcome benefits all.

I will turn the negatives into powerful positives. I will become fit and healthy with positive physical energy and well-being. I will get my farm, and all manner of wonderful things will come to be because I Believe! That is magic. Faeries, Elves, Spirits, Elementals, Guides, Angels, they surround me daily and I offer myself to them so I can help others. That gives me great pleasure. That is magical to me.

That helps to negate all the bad which happens. It cannot stop the mean-spirited from trying to destroy what you are trying to do. It doesn’t take away all the pain, but it helps. It dries the tears when disappointment looms large. A sprinkle of fairy dust helps to make the day brighter and gives me the strength to go on.

I invite you to try it. Magic happens!

“We’re not dust, we’re magic!”    Richard Bach

We can choose to function at a lower level of awareness and simply exist, caring for our possessions, eating, drinking, sleeping and managing in the world as pawns of the elements, or we can soar to new and higher levels of awareness allowing ourselves to transcend our environment and literally create a world of our own — a world of real magic.

“My nightly craft is winged in white, a dragon of night dark sea.
Swift born, dream bound and rudderless, her captain and crew are me.
We’ve sailed a hundred sleeping tides where no seaman’s ever been‘found’
And only my white-winged craft and I know the wonders we have seen.”
Anne McCaffrey, Dragonsong

I have a confession to make, I love Dragonlance by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman, and have since I read the first book many years ago.  I ‘found’ this wonderful world at a time when I needed a place to hide, a place which was so far from the real world that I could lose myself entirely within its pages and lose track of time and even place. After I finished the first one, which was the special edition omnibus of the first three novels I was so ‘hooked’ on magic and dragons, good and evil, elves, dwarves, knights and wizards that I was drawn like iron to a lodestone to get my next ‘fix’.

Fortunately for me the books are based on the game Dungeons and Dragons and there were many more books. Some were written by Weis and Hickman and many others by different creators of parts of the world of Krynn where the story was set. There were back stories and side stories and future stories, in fact the plot lines went in so many directions you could meet up with well-loved characters when least expected.

For a long time I ‘lived’ in this strange half-life of magic where good overcame evil and the wrongs of the world were eventually righted, even if the world had been brought to the brink of disaster. I have often wondered since then why it had such an appeal. In essence it was quite simple.

I believe in right and wrong, that people are inherently good but there are bad people around and that bad things happen to good people. There has to be a ‘force’ for good, which is a way to become more than we are. We have to be able to evolve so that we can make our world the place it can be, in all its beauty. We must be able to not only ‘do’ magic but to ‘be’ magic too. We need to be able to reach our highest potential; to be our own heroes and heroines, or our shining spirits after our trials and lessons.

Are there dragons? Oh I do believe so. I believe in Merlin and King Arthur after all, and I know that Merlin is in his Crystal Cave with his dragon sleeping until he is needed once more.  Being born in England, the land of St. George and the Dragon and so many myths and legends, what else would you expect.

There is so much more to life than what your five senses can recognise. There is the entire universe of your imagination which has no boundaries.  When you allow your sense to expand and your boundaries to disappear then magic truly does happen.  It is at this point where realities collide, the unseen becomes commonplace, all that can be imagined is not simply possible but absolutely real. It is the place where we can be all that we can possibly be.

This is the world I know is real. We can be so much more than we currently are. There are things we, as human beings, as our spirits grow, will be able to do in years to come that if we knew know, we would wonder why we hadn’t been doing it long ago. It will seem like we are living in a world of magic and wonder and eventually we will accept is as a matter of normalcy. I wish it were here now!

Where did I put my wand?

“And though I came to forget or regret all I have ever done, yet would I remember that once I saw the dragons aloft on the wind at sunset above the western isles; and I would be content.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

.

“I desired dragons with a profound desire. Of course, I in my timid body did not wish to have them in the neighborhood. But the world that contained even the imagination of Fáfnir was richer and more beautiful, at whatever the cost of peril.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

.

May magic dust be sprinkled into your life.

May you dream of magic and dragons, of fairies and elves.

Bright Blessings and Waking Dreams. Susan   xx
