Inviting the Magic In

posted by Jodi Chapman

Jodi Chapman - ScarfI did something the other day that I haven’t done in years: I bought something for myself that I didn’t need, that wasn’t practical, and that I didn’t even know what I would do with.

I saw this cute scarf and immediately was drawn to it. I don’t normally wear scarves, and I didn’t plan on wearing this one. I just wanted it near me – on my desk or in my office where I could see it often. I felt that this scarf represented something so much bigger than the scarf itself. It represented self care, fun, femininity, and joy – all experiences that I would love to embrace and experience more of in my life. I felt in a deep way that, whether I wore this scarf or not, simply seeing it would help remind me to invite these aspects of myself back into my life again. 

It’s become a magical scarf, in a way. Not magic in the sense of hocus pocus and abracadabra, but in the sense of reminding me of how powerful I am. It reminds me that I have the ability to change my life. I can choose to continue living without self care and joy, or I can choose to invite them in. When I see this magical scarf sitting on my desk, I am filled with excitement for what’s possible and love that I am part of such a beautiful world that allows me to create whatever experience I desire.

I find that absolutely exhilarating and completely amazing.

I would love for each of us to experience this opening to the possibility – this reminder of what’s possible in our world. 

So, if you would like to play along, I invite you to find an object that represents aspects of yourself and of your life that you would like to feel more of and experience more of – such as love, excitement, joy, self worth, beauty, etc.

You may know right away what the object is. Or, like me, it may surprise you and show up when you least expect it. If you stay open to receiving this symbol, it will come. I believe that with all of my heart.

You could even ask the universe to send it to you. And then be on the lookout for it.

It could be anything: a pretty absolutely non-practical scarf (like mine), a gemstone, a painting, a flower – any token that represents the YOU that you would like to embody.

Once you find it, I recommend putting it where you’ll see it often – where you can touch it and take its energy into your heart. Really allow yourself to experience what it means to you – what it’s showing you is possible. And then begin to invite that possibility into your life.

Since bringing my scarf home, I’ve taken much more time away from work and given it to myself. And while it’s still new and I’m still in the midst of receiving all of the gifts that it will continue to bring into my life, I can feel myself changing from the inside out. I can sense that I am beginning to shift and remember these parts of myself that have been forgotten. I am beginning to embrace the magic that this object is bringing into my life.

And I would love for you to do the same with your magical object – your token of love.

It has the potential to be life changing if you’re open to receiving.

It’s my hope that you are open and that you do receive and that your life from now on is filled with never-ending magic. 

Hugs,

Jodi

    Love this! I will definitely be on the look out for a reminder object. I tend to forget the magic in life, silly I know! I do feel wonderful when my crystals are around though. I love sleeping with one clutched in my hand.

    I LOVE this idea Jodi – having a beautiful physical reminder of the magic that is always working for us in all dimensions – this is shifting my energy too. I definitely want to find my magic object now! :) Love, Astra

    Thank you for sharing this Jodi. I was struggling so hard for the last few months, I was going to end my life. I had a plan and was very serious about it, but thankfully the Devine, All my Angels And Spirit Guides stepped into my life to protect me and keep me safe. I called a crisis line and they sent a team of workers to help me.

Sometimes, life can feel overwhelming. It can feel disheartening. It can feel like it’s all just too much to handle, to process, to sift through. Especially for sensitive souls – those of us who live our lives with our hearts wide open and with our emotions close to the surface. I know. I rea

Lean Into It
I oftentimes feel that my life is a drag car race – where I’m going around and around and around at super fast speeds, and the only time I stop to recharge is when I absolutely have to – when I’m about to run out of gas or when my body simply can’t go any longer and needs to refuel – eit

You Already Know
Yes. It’s easy to look to another for the answers. It’s easy to look outside of yourself for the way forward. It’s easy to ask and plead and beg for someone to tell you what to do, or how to live, or where to go. It’s so easy to put all of your power in someone else’s hands – to turn you

You're Already Perfect
In the past I seemed to believe that I'd achieve perfection if I only tried hard enough, pushed hard enough, and worked hard enough.  So that’s exactly what I did. I tried until I couldn’t try any more. I pushed until I was absolutely exhausted and had nothing left to give. And I worked unti
