Inner Journey: BELIEVE IN MAGIC!
“…for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic.”
— Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews
“Most of the time, we fall in love but can’t remain there. The world then calls the state we were in a delusion or infatuation … But we merely lacked, or someone else lacked, the emotional skills to hold on to the magic when the morning came. …In truth, we can go to the moon and retain its magic for a lifetime.”
— Marianne Williamson
“We think, sometimes, there’s not a dragon left. Not one brave knight, not a single princess gliding through secret forests … What a pleasure to be wrong. Princesses, knights, enchantments and dragons, mystery and adventure … not only are they here-and-now, they’re all that ever lived on earth! Masters of reality still meet us in dreams to tell us that we’ve never lost the shield we need against dragons, that blue-fire voltage arcs through us now to change our world as we wish. Intuition whispers true: We’re not dust, we’re magic!”
— Richard Bach

Today’s Recipe: Clementine and Chocolate Chip Cake
I made the proto-type for this clementine cake by digging through the kitchen to see what we had. My seven-year-old son adored it. This is the second iteration and I found it’s a winner.

“Birth may be a matter of a moment. But it is a unique one.”
Birth is a beginning. It is the single event that starts us on our journey in this lifetime. Our grand entrance into the world! And here we are. Somehow all the right pieces were in place to make this miracle, and we were born to live this life. Life is precious.

Take your place in the World and be in your element all day long. Your practical mind and easy nature let you cruise through the regular maze that is daily life. If anything out of the ordinary arises, you’ll know instinctively how to approach it and resolve things to your satisfaction. Today may not be easy or effortless but it will be rich in success and approval – from yourself and probably others as well.
