“I declare my independence by being free of the past. I am totally present in the glorious now.” Louise Hay
I am rereading Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery right now. How I adore Anne! No matter what circumstances come her way, she always finds a way to use her imagination to make them better. It has got me thinking.
If the concepts of quantum physics are true (or actually more importantly if I chose to believe they are true – which I do!) then we are choosing what type of movie we want to be in. For most of us, we have been in a drama and for many, a tragedy. Now, though, we have a chance to start a whole new story for ourselves.
A couple of months ago, I had a momentous ah ha moment. I was working with a group and we were using the Archetype cards by Caroline Myss. We were asking what archetype could help us move into living a life we would love and the card that fell out for me was Child- Magical. Here is what the card suggests for this archetype:
- “Sees potential for sacred beauty in all things”
- “Embodies wisdom and courage in the face of difficult circumstances”
- “Is gifted with imagination and the belief that everything is possible”
I love this card! Having spent much of my life with my child energy either wounded or orphaned, the idea of now having a magical child thrilled me! What would life be like if that was my experience?
That question, along with my new-found interest in quantum physics, set me off on a path of adventure to see if I could truly live a magical life. I changed my affirmations and started saying that my magical child was now in charge of writing the script of my life and that she only writes scripts I enjoy. I also started saying something I heard from Esther Hicks, “Everything always works out for me ( and I added – in ways that I enjoy)!” Through this shift in my perception, I found myself no longer looking at the people around me as victimizing me or somehow controlling me, but began to see them as characters in the play of my life. What were those characters written into the story for? What gift were they bringing me and what beliefs were they reflecting that perhaps I was ready to change? Slowly and systematically, I began really looking at everything and seeing if perhaps there was a way to start creating a new more magical world for myself.
You know what has been happening? Absolutely magical experiences! Suddenly a whole new world has opened up to explore and enjoy with my spiritual work and I’m very excited to see where the journey takes me next.
This month, I invite you to look at the script you have been experiencing in your life and perhaps consider asking yourself if it is time to hire a new writer who has a really great imagination. After all, if we are co-creating our experiences, why not start creating ones we love!
Here’s a final quote from Anne of Green Gables –
“…Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Much love to you all!
