“The palest ink is stronger than the sharpest memory” – Ancient Proverb
This weeks challenge may sound easier than it really is. Do you pay attention when you or someone you care about begins to gossip in your presence? Do you yourself spread gossip? When you partake in the act of gossiping, you could potentially be drawing into your life negativity without even being aware.
So this week we challenge you to not partake in any gossiping any day–at all! You will surprised at how many opportunities exist to allow gossip to enter your life.
We wish you luck with this challenge and please share your experiences below!

I adhere to a gluten free diet. Aside from doing it for health reasons, I’ve come to discover that the elimination of gluten from my diet has improved my mood; I feel less depressed and experience less severe and frequent mood swings—essentially, I am able to control my magnet better and keep it smiling for much long periods of time.
Anyway, my dear friend, and original Magicality Buddy, Rayna, was gluten free for a while but she recently decided it was not the best lifestyle for her to live any longer.
One morning, I woke up to find three large boxes at my doorstep. Knowing I hadn’t ordered anything, I was confused as to what they were about until my eyes met the letters of Magicality in each one, telling me to enjoy some “Money In,” and saw the gluten free goodies that were being passed on to me by my MB (Magicality Buddy). It was like gluten free heaven and Christmas all rolled into one; I was so grateful and excited!
I am sharing this personal story with you because it is an excellent example of “Money In,” as Joe Vitale calls it. Though it was not in “money” form, this gift had VALUE; not only were all the items expensive to buy, but the gift itself had special meaning—value—for me.
It is an amazing way to recognize things in your life for their value. Everything has value—the savings coupon or discount, a gift received, the free tickets you win, spending time with loved ones, or even the unexpected help you receive—these all have value and deserve attention and gratitude.
An excellent way to show your gratitude is to reciprocate in some way—“Money Out” for you is “Money In” for someone else. We are all connected. There is no vacuum in the system; when you let go of something, maybe money in this case, it will soon be replaced by something else—“Money back in”—in some form.
“Value In” and “Value Out” is always happening and it happens for everyone. It’s a matter of being aware, noticing, accepting it, showing gratitude and reciprocating. The moment you let fear enter the equation—fear of letting go of something because of the sense of lack, you immediate prevent the flow of attracting more “value” to you! Believe in abundance!
I am looking forward to surprising Rayna with a gratitude gift in return; I know whatever I send, and whenever it happens, it will be the right time for both of us and it will make both of our Magnets smile!
Here’s to much “Value In” for all of us!
The words that follow “I Am” are very important. Last year I read an amazing life changing book called Wishes Fulfilled by Wayne Dyer. While reading this book, it was the first time I discovered the “I Am” statement.
But almost instantly as I read these words, I began to see and read about them everywhere else. From church, to other authors, Deepak Chopra, Oprah, mediations…pretty much everywhere.
Because or this, I knew there was a lot of power behind them. Whatever words you say after them shapes your reality.
Add positive words after this statement and watch the world change for you.
Conversely, add negative words and see how this can shape your world in not such a bright way:
Not good enough
Have you ever caught yourself saying any of these negative statements? Pay attention to what words you are using after the statement “I Am”. It will open up your eyes to see what you are unknowingly putting out there into the universe.
Now for some Magicality homework! Get out your favorite writing device and write “I Am” at the top. Then jot down statements that follow these words that will shape your life the way you’ve always envisioned it.
Then everyday when you wake up say your “I Am” statements. And everyday when you go to bed, right before sleep, say your “I Am” statements. Then as the days progress and you feel more comfortable saying them, start envisioning yourself as you say them.
Your world will change. Just believe.
Until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo
Last week I discussed some struggles that recently happened for me in my life. Today I wanted to share a more specific story with you. Before I gave birth I had planned on breastfeeding my little one until he was a year old. I had it all planned.
In my head, it wouldn’t hurt as badly as people said it would. In my head, I would be a natural at it. In my head, it would come so easily. Notice…these were all things in my head.
I guess deep down subconsciously I didn’t believe these surface thoughts I had floating in my head, because from the moment he was born none of those things were true.
It was a bit painful, unnatural and not at all easy.
But I decided to ignore these feelings and persevere. The lactation consultant at the hospital was super nice and showed me a football position that I would continue on doing for the next several weeks by myself.
Then at my 2 week checkup with my pediatrician, he told us although our son was perfectly healthy (thank God!), he hadn’t reached his original birth weight (apparently babies lose a bunch of weight within days after being born). So the Dr basically said we had to go to a lactation support group to test out my milk supply.
This happened to be the week of Thanksgiving and really felt so devastating. So to get our baby ready and go to the support group, it ended up taking several hours. While there, I was taught better latching and holding techniques, which I was truly grateful for. But to my dismay, I was put on a very demanding feeding and pumping schedule.
In addition I was told to take fenugreek and blessed thistle to help increase my supply. Then I had to attend a few more of these packed filled sessions that took hours from our day for those several weeks.
At so many points I wanted to give up. Especially when my pump broke (yes that happened twice) and when the blessed thistle made me violently ill amongst a million other reasons. But I knew deep down that I had the universe–God on my side. I kept telling myself that I would get through this and that my baby would gain weight.
So sure enough at his 1 month checkup the Dr was very pleased with his weight gain and told us to keep doing what we were doing.
So I went home and decided to listen to inspiration–and I stopped pumping and started feeding my boy when he “asked” for it. He ate–a lot! This became very demanding as well but I held on for the ride.
I swore at 2 months that I would switch to formula but I wanted to prove I could sustain my son and help him increase his weight. Sure enough at his 2 month checkup he was thriving! And something told me to keep at it. So I listened to inspiration and kept nursing my son.
So now 2 months later I am still exclusively nursing and some days I toy with idea of switching to formula.
I’m not sure how long I will be able to last but I take it day by day. I removed the set time frames of “1 year” from myself and just go with the flow, as wavy as the flow may be at times.
Life will throw you curve balls and the unexpected. You may think you have it all figured out, but something in your subconscious comes to life and sends you for a loop.
Know that the universe will send you inspiration. You just have to be open to receiving it. Remember to listen.
Until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo
P.S. For those of you celebrating, Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! May you experience the luck of the Irish! 😉
Happy Monday readers!! Have you ever had a moment in life that put you off track? Did it seem like you wouldn’t be able to pick yourself up, but yet you found yourself back on your journey and path to enlightenment?
Well I for sure have…plenty of times in my journey so far and today I wanted to share one of these monumental times with you.
As you may or may not know, I had my first child in November (it’s a BOY!) and am truly blessed with this little miracle.
As I write this post I am looking down on him sleeping on me and he has the most precious face (sorry for the cheesy moment). What I want to share with you today is that having a child completely side-tracked me in my law of attraction and Magicality skills.
From the days leading up to his birth I had gotten hardly any sleep. Then from the moment I was in labor, he was born and now 4 months later, I still am a sleep deprived “mombie”.
I am not sure if it is the sleep deprivation, the shock of being a new parent, the struggles with a newborn or perhaps a combination of all of these things that pushed me off my path, but I can recognize that I had been off for quite some while.
My Magicality Magnet for sure was flipped down more times than I would like to admit. There were plenty of times that I reached out to my Magicality Buddy, my friends, family…anyone that could help make sense of things for me.
In my head, logically I knew that my thoughts were contradicting what I want to really attract in life. But for some reason, it wasn’t an easy task to switch my thoughts back to positive.
I can say that although back in tune, I still feel I need a tune-up and that it will take my mental strength and perseverance to be where I was before I gave birth.
But every day is a new opportunity to flip your magnet….in fact every moment is. If you find yourself out of sorts like I was, please know that this is normal. Know that you will get back on track and that this is just a test of your faith. A magicality hiccup for you. All hiccups come to an end….it just may take some ‘salt on your tongue, loads of water or even a good scare’ to get it to stop.
I guess you need to go through rough patches to truly appreciate the greatness that life really has to offer. The world is filled with opposites and this is just one of those instances you have to live through.
And believe me…you will always come out stronger on the other side.
So until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo
Have you ever been reading and had such powerfully inspiring thought pop in your head that you had to write it down because you knew you wouldn’t remember the wording the same exact way, or the feeling it evoked at the time, if you remember it at all days from then?
While reading Noah St. John’s book, The Book of Afformations: Discovering the Missing Piece to Abundant Health, Wealth, Love and Happiness, I was suddenly hit with this realization, this exact phrase that quickly scribbled down, “I just want to be inspired. That’s what I want in life. That is what makes me feel good, excites and thrills me, and fills me with hope and energy.”
Realizing this literally opened my eyes and mind, in that exact moment, in a totally different way. It was like I just finally understood what I need to do. I need to follow my inspirations, do what makes me feel inspired, and the rest will just fall into place. I felt it was the truth; a truth I didn’t know existed in me before. And I believe it is the truth for ALL of us!!
Inspiration drives your inner spirit; it puts you on the path towards your life’s purpose; it keeps your energy up and entices your feet to keep moving toward the goal of your soul—whether you know what that is or not. The more you allow yourself to be inspired, the clearer your life’s purpose will become.
Laissez Faire; set the intention to be constantly flooded with inspiration, let go of worrying about the “how’s,” “what’s,” “when’s,” and “why’s” and open your inspiration flood gates!
Allow yourself to be inspired! Love this feeling and you will attract more inspiration to you—an inspiring person or conversation, and inspiring book or seminar, an inspiring thought or image. Just be inspired!
Here’s to being flooded by inspiration!
