Feel like starting your week with a little magic? You in? Cool, let's play.
Let me start by telling you a story about something magical that happened recently.
It was the beginning of a packed work week, my childcare was super sick, and all backups were out of town.
I started to go into “fix it” mode, which felt like “oh no!” and stress and nothing good.
Then, I stopped (this is when it gets good) and decided to say YES to it.
I wrote down every task and scheduling challenge that I didn’t know how to solve and I visualized handing it over to the Universe.
I had a sort of “okay… here we go” feeling like I would at the top of a water slide.
Then, I relaxed. I cuddled my little girl, read books to her, and felt my heart explode at each giggle and silly face.
Then, magic started to happen.
Okay, not that red-hot second, but as each day ticked by things started shifting.
Clients who I needed to reschedule ended up RESCHEDULING ME.
The project I’d been working on suddenly shifted and felt like a riddle I just cracked.
Tasks were completed faster.
It felt like ease and joy and magic.
Because I said yes.
But, I’m no different from you.
This type of magic is available for all of us.
And assistance from the Universe is available for YOU right now.
When you say YES to a situation you’re giving room for the Universe to help you and what follows looks like magic.
In fact, the thing you might be saying, “Oh hell no!” to could be the Universe rearranging things FOR YOU.
Even big things, like losing a job or having your spouse ask for a separation. These things could be divinely rearranging in your favor.
But you gotta say yes to it.
I’d been asking for more creative time and, clearly, the Universe delivered.
I would have missed the magic if I went scrambling to “fix the problem.”
So, do you have something you want to say yes to?
Here are three questions to ask yourself to help:
1) What would it look like if I said yes to this situation?
2) What could I hand over to the Universe to take care of for me?
3) How would it feel if I trusted that somehow this situation is happening for me, not to me.
Practicing saying yes is like having little trust falls with the Universe over and over again, but when you let yourself fall with trust, you’ll find that the Universe will catch you.
Then, what felt like falling on blind trust begins to feel like magic over and over again.
