Practical Magic

Many of you may not know that the first song that I play in my office each day is the theme from "Practical Magic" the movie! I do this to remind myself that magic is real, and your reality is what you make it. I do practical magic each day in my home by lighting one candle for peace, and one for prosperity. I have a mantle that I place a special cloth on with things that remind me that I am not separate and alone from the Divine. Recently, I put a picture in a frame of a small mouse, out in the snow, that finds an ear of Indian corn to feed it.
The caption reads: Matthew 6:26 See the birds of heaven; they do not put seeds in the earth, they do not get in grain, or put it in store-houses; and your Father in heaven gives them food. Are you not of much more value than they?
It is a good reminder that we may not always get what we want, but we will get what we need. Create Practical magic in your life. Find outward ways to express your inner strength and purpose. I personally have found Scott Cunnigham's book the "Magical Household" to be of help! Namaste - Karen
