“The questions you’re asking are creating your life.” – Noah St. John
As discussed last week, I am still focusing on being more present in my life and hope you have begun to do the same.
I love to watch Super Soul Sunday on Oprah’s OWN network. For the past several Sundays I’ve been watching the mini series A New Earth with Oprah and Eckhart Tolle. It’s been really eye opening and I look forward to it every week.
I recently came across this post on Facebook:
This short film clip really made me see the ego in a whole new perspective. The ego, whom lives inside us all, does not define who we truly are. Recognizing this will be so profound for you. Any time you begin to speak or act out of anger, anxiety or fear, recognize that this is not you—It is your ego and you are not your ego.
In the words of my husband:
You truly are not your ego. Your ego exists in the past and in the future and that’s when you allow it to have hold over you. Learn to be present and watch the ego dip away.
Next week I will delve more into the power of the ego and ways to silence that inner voice that causes you to be anxious, nervous, afraid, etc.
Until next time, have magical moments!
Hello Lovely Readers!! We are super excited and grateful because Jacki the totally amazing blogger over at Flying the Good Flight, has nominated Tales of Magicality for the Liebster Award! We are so honored and stoked all rolled into one!!
After some research (and reading Jacki’s blog post) we discovered that “the Liebster Award is given to bloggers with less than 500 followers by other awesome bloggers to help spread the word on us smaller operations. How awesomesauce is that? I’m diggin’ the whole “pay it forward” vibe.”
Here are the rules, for those (like us) who are not in the know:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you. (Thank you again Jacki!!)
2. Answer the Questions given to you.
3. Nominate other blogs with less than 500 followers.
4. Post Questions to be answered by your nominees.
5. Tag & link your nominees & leave a comment letting them know they’re nominated, appreciated, & loved!
So, without further ado, here are the Questions Jacki posted for us to answer:
1. What do you consider your biggest accomplishment so far in life?
For me, I would have to say my biggest accomplishment in life so far is following my true hearts desire. In 2010 I moved cross country from New York to San Diego. I love where I live but I love more that I followed my heart. I’ve taken that leap of faith as an example for me to continue following my heart and inspiration!
Well, it may sound funny, but I think my biggest accomplishment in life so far is learning I have control over my moods and learning to keep myself in a happier state of mind the majority of my days the past couple of years….that’s right, it took almost all of my life to get here so that’s why I consider it a huge accomplishment. In all honesty, I really have the Law of Attraction and the creation and recognition of my Magicality Magnet to thank….as well as my Magicality Buddy, Rayna.
2. What are three things that make you smile?
My sons smile, Nature and being able to help others.
My kids playing nicely together, enjoying loud music in my car with the sunroof open on a sunny day and 4-wheeling my Jeep to our secret camping spot.
3. What is your favorite color & what do you think it says about you?
My favorite color is currently blue and I think it reflects my love for the ocean and all things beach and sky! 🙂
Hmm, I am a real lover of COLOR–many, many different colors–but I suppose my all time favorite is green; the name of the green I painted in my old house was “Wilderness” and the name of the green in my current house is “Fraser Fir.”
4. What would you say is the main message behind your blog?
I would say the main message of Tales of Magicality is to inspire anyone that needs some inspiration. We are on this journey of self discovery and awakening with You, the reader, so we hope you can relate to what we have to say. Hopefully it inspires you in some way!
I would say the main message that Tales of Magicality is trying to express is that we are all human, we are all a work in progress; while it can be easy to get discouraged in life, it is possible to live a more fulfilled, happier life when you are aware of all the wonderful things that come across your path–everything has meaning! Practice makes perfect…and it pays off with a happier YOU!
5. What is the greatest obstacle you’ve overcome so far in your journey?
For me, my greatest obstacle in this journey called life has been going through a divorce. But without this event occurring, I wouldn’t have came across the law of attraction and the many wonderful people in my life today. Everything has purpose in life. I learned to learn from my obstacles to make life so much better. Now my passion is helping others learn that too! 🙂
Well, I think the greatest obstacle that I have overcome in my life which offered the sweetest reward on the other side was college. I had a hard time finding my way. After leaving school, taking time off to work full time only to find that I truly missed school and learning, then searching for my right “fit,” I ended up in Lake Tahoe in a tiny Liberal Arts school and eventually met the love of my life while living there. Had I not experienced all those college-related “lows,” I would have never been drawn out west and met my husband. Everything happens for a reason…a good reason.
And now to pay it forward and present to you some really spectacularly amazing bloggers that we nominate:
