The Mystical Magic of the Unknown
by Cheryl Melody Baskin, www.cherylmelody.com
Is every shift in your life’s direction explainable?
Are you a realist? Do you explain life and all its unexpected changes from the perspective of coincidence? Are you more ethereal? Do you think that life’s twists and turns are caused by something mystical and unexplainable? Because there is no real proof either way, you may find yourself vacillating between realism and mysticism.
Even though the following stories are hypothetical, they could happen. Each scene conveys life’s unexpected and unexplainable surprises…
You’re retired. A catalogue comes to your home with a selection of adult education classes and you decide to register for a poetry workshop. Even though you’ve never written a poem before, what do you have to lose? Lo and behold, they flow through you with incredible ease, and one year later, you decide to publish them. Someone finds your book on Amazon, and he gives it to Oprah as a gift. She wants to promote it! Change of plans?
Despite strained finances, your parents do whatever it takes to send you to law school. They know that you are worth the sacrifice. You are grateful for their support, but their beautiful sacrifice has a downside. Their high expectations keep you from telling them about your other passion. When you’re not studying, you’re in a popular college band as the lead singer, and in your heart, you really want to sing for a living. One night you’re rehearsing with your band. A prominent agent in the music industry walks into the room. He hears you sing, and he wants you to consider an idea right away. Change of plans?
If we like to think that we can control every aspect of our lives, it may feel very confusing to have our “definite” plans change. Is every shift in our life’s direction explainable, or is there a mystical energy guiding us? Even though I wrestle with more open-ended questions than definitive answers, I lean towards the idea of a magical and mysterious energy at play.
Life Wisdom: I don’t question the wisdom-whispers that dance in my heart. If I sense that the whisper is coming from my highest intuition, I listen. Wherever the whisper leads, I follow. Even if I am insecure, fearful and insufficiently knowledgeable, when I hear a whisper that is aligned with my core values, I vibrate a resounding YES!
*If I have an intuitive feeling that the knock on my door of dreams is a mystical push toward my next steps in life, I say YES!
*If I sense that this dream will uplift the human spirit, I say YES!
*If I sense that it will expand me as a human being, I say YES!
*If I feel that my new vision will stimulate and expand my passion and creative energy, I say YES!
YES affirms that you are open and willing to step towards the unknown
YES is a nod of agreement to the Universe.
YES propels us towards the passion of our visions and dreams.
