“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” – Paulo Coelho
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:

Have you ever noticed how when you worry about something happening to you, that’s usually what happens? Doesn’t that stink!? And, unfortunately, that’s usually what we notice the most—the things we didn’t want happening, happening—even though we are constantly attracting good circumstances to us all the time too.
Take it from me, “the worry queen,” worry does no good! While I have been a worrier most of my life, I finally learned the hard way how powerful my worrying can affect me…physically.
Getting dressed up club style, platform heels and all, for my best friend’s bachelorette party in NYC, I kept stressing about falling and breaking an ankle or something while wearing my heels; I’m not one to wear heels more than a few times a year and this was one of those occasions. I even stuffed into the pockets of my coat my flip flops, my more usual style of footwear, in case my feet were killing me and I had to change my shoes.
One of the girls that was with us grabbed me by the shoulders as were getting ready to leave for the club and said, “Mar, you are not allowed to stress tonight! You are here to enjoy yourself and that is what you are going to do. Everything is going to be fine!” I thanked her for the reminder that snapped me out of my negative state and ended up having a great time dancing the night away till 5 am…without falling or tripping once.
It wasn’t until we got home that my worry magnet brought my worries to life, like there was a delay in the universe’s delivery system.
While stepping out onto the balcony when we got back to the apartment, with my flip flops on at that point, oddly enough, I fell on the side of my ankle and come to find out the next day, after being encouraged by my husband to go to the ER, that I fractured my ankle in 3 places; my first broken bone ever.
At first I didn’t make the connection between my thoughts only hours prior to my broken ankle and its actual “breaking point,” but once it dawned on me, I realized how powerful my worrying had been in attracting exactly what I was worrying about, exactly what I DIDN’T want to happen!
So, let my painful, drawn out experience be a lesson to you—whatever you focus on, whether it be a positive or negative thing, you will eventually manifest it in your life. It may not be as clear or severe as a broken bone, but the sooner you pay attention to the way you think and feel and act and the way things play out in your life, the sooner you will realize how powerful you truly are. Like any great king or queen, it is important to not abuse your power so don’t let negativity rule your mind, heart and soul because its power can make or “break” you! Haha
Here’s to the power of positive thought attracting happy things into our live
For the past several weeks I’ve been really studying being more in the present moment also known as the now. Years ago I came across the book The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle. While at the time I felt it to be very profound and inspirational, I couldn’t see the connection to the law of attraction.
Fast forward almost 6 years later and the universe is now showing me that connection. Over the next several weeks my focus is going to be to share what I am learning with you. Hopefully this can inspire you to be more present in your life.
I wanted to share with you how the power of the present moment re-entered my life. There’s just so much Magicality to it that I think it is post-worthy!
So sometime in the last month I have this huge epiphany! After about 6 years from the time I read The Power of Now I finally got it!! Perhaps it came to me in a dream or maybe I was daydreaming, but I was finally able to grasp the meaning of living in the now. In order to truly manifest the life of your dreams you have to step out of your head…step out of thinking…and be in the present moment…the now…this all links to your past beliefs in your subconscious.
If you get out of your head and thinking to the present moment there are no subconscious beliefs to interfere. You allow yourself to truly access the power of the universe.
So I have these amazing thoughts…then I was up early one Sunday morning with my son and after some time we went to take a nap together. When I woke up and turned on the TV…it was pure Magicality…Oprah talking to Eckhart Tolle about being in the present moment links you to God. They went on to say that believing about God is so much less than experiencing God in the now.
It was chilling.
I just Had to share how I had the thought and then almost instantly it affirms itself to me through the program that was on television. I know it’s not easy to grasp your mind around which is why I will be delving into the subject more in depth over the course of the next several weeks.
Also be more aware of the inspiration you receive. The universe is trying to tell you something. Try to be more present in your life and see how more joy enters your life.
Until next time, have magical moments!

P.S. We are super excited to announce that we were nominated for the Liebert Award by fellow blogger Jacki from Flying the Good Flight (http://flyingthegoodflight.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/1009/)
We are busy working to respond to this narly nomination and our post should be up soon. In the meantime take a look at Jacki’s blog 🙂
P.P.S. EXPECT MIRACLES
Have you ever wanted something so badly—to hit a home run, to win that certain prize at a raffle, to attract more clients at work—but 9 times of out 10 you don’t get what you hope for? Even when you used visualization to FEEL what it is like to have those things already, and you imagine and SPEAK as if they are already true facts, why are your wishes still not fulfilled most of the time?
The reason is because you don’t truly BELIEVE you can have, or deserve, or can be what you are aiming for. It is your belief system that gets in the way of your goals. Essentially, you are TELLING the Universe what you want while exuding an energy that is contradictory.
Feeling is the language of the soul, so if you have any doubts about accomplishing your ultimate goals, those doubts will be expressed in your feelings, or subconscious beliefs. Those limiting beliefs you have will affect your end result, which will probably be you not getting what you want.
Your subconscious limiting beliefs will affect your feelings, which will then affect your actions. While dreaming about your ideal end result is great, if you don’t take proactive steps toward attaining your goals and fulfilling your desires, you are preventing positive outcomes for yourself. But, if your heart really doesn’t believe you can attain what you want, your actions will be full of trepidation, fear, negativity, and dubiousness.
To address your negative, limiting beliefs such as, “I never win anything,” or “I can never get ahead,” or “There’s no way I can do this,” do some tapping to help clear those negative beliefs and fears and replace them with a new, positive perspective or try using a negativity analysis to address your lack of belief in yourself.
In the meantime, keep working on honing your awareness skills and acting on the signs of Magicality that present themselves to you in the form of sudden opportunities, “coincidental” meetings or new introductions, or internal guidance from within yourself.
We believe in you…it’s time you start really believing in yourself!
Here’s to creating UNlimited, positive beliefs!
Fear gives us what we don’t want and faith gives us what we do want in life. But often, we are driven by fear. That is a huge component of why we don’t get what we think we are asking for in our thoughts.
Maybe you have a business venture you want to go after but you’re afraid of leaving your current job. Maybe you want to take a class but are afraid of failure. Maybe you want to skydive but are afraid of your parachute not opening. Whatever the case may be for you…fear is holding you back.
So how do you push fear aside??
Great question! The only true way to do so is with Faith. Faith opens up doors for you where there was once only walls. Faith will move mountains to make things happen. Faith is your answer!
I just watched the movie Jobs about the life of Steve Jobs. He always had undeniable faith. Faith in himself and faith in the products he created. He knew that Apple would be a success. He didn’t love a fear-led life. He led a faith-led life.
Start believing in the universe fully and whole-heatedly. Know that when you ask for something that you will receive it. Know that fear is ego-driven and made up completely. For the most part, it is irrational thoughts.
If fear weren’t irrational, why would the #1 fear be public speaking?
Embrace your faith today and watch as your world begins to change. You’ll begin to do things that fear once held you back from doing. And it will be Amazing!! Trust that.
Trust the universe and most importantly trust in yourself.
Until next time, have magical moments! 🙂 xoxo
