Believe In the Magic!

I remember being taken to see the movie "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" when I was a kid (yes, the original version) and being in total awe and delight of the fantastic imagery of Wonka's chocolate factory. It truly did seem like a place of fantasy where all your wildest dreams could suddenly come true. When we are kids, such things enthrall us because something deep inside speaks to us that magic is real. We know it with every fiber of our being. Then one day, we grow up and wonder how we could ever have been that simple and naive to believe in things so fantastic and unrealistic. We go on with our lives in the "real" world--very often lives of boredom and drudgery and unfulfilled dreams.

What if I were to tell you that the magic is real? That you could wave your wand over anything and everything in your life and it could be changed in an instant? Would you think I was crazy? Would you lock me away in the mental hospital?

The truth of the matter is, magic IS real! You can live a life of miraculous wonder and infinite abundance! The key to living such a life is to let go of all the limits you have placed on it about how the world is "supposed' to work and believe that anything is possible. Yes, you must believe in the magic! You must believe in the miraculous! You must trust the dreams in your heart so much that you are willing to see only them and not what the world tells you is true.

In religious terms, the concept is called faith. According to the Bible, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." (Heb. 11:1 KJV) Simply put, faith is that knowing in your heart that something exists, even when you have no physical evidence to support that claim at present.

Miracles happen every day. The miracles that present themselves in our lives occur because we believe--we have faith--that they can happen. When we limit our knowing, we limit the miracles that are allowed to occur in our lives. It's that simple. It's your choice.

So get over yourself and your limited belief system! Believe in miracles! Be willing to wave your magic wand and allow the magic to enter your life! Your life can change in an instant. All you have to do is believe!
