Writing Magic



I am listening to a telesummit about magic and I’ve come to realize that to create more magic I need to create more.  So, I have decided to challenge myself to increase my writing.  The funny thing is, when I was in school, I hated to write.  It was like pulling teeth.  I couldn’t think of anything to say or write.  It used to take me hours and even days to write a report or create a speech.  Now, I have so much to say I don’t know where to start.  Sometimes, I cut myself short because I think I’m being too wordy.  It’s kind of a new thing for me to have something to say.

As I reflect on the past, I see where how much I had limited myself.  I spent too much time thinking about what to write and how to do it correctly.  Was I going to get it done on time?  I perseverated on the fact that I could not think of what to write.  I was so stuck in my brain.  I was also stuck myself by desiring validation that I did have the capacity to write.  That I knew what I was doing.  However, I kept telling myself that I couldn’t do it.

Hmm… Silly human telling myself I couldn’t do something, then expecting that I could magically make it happen.  What if I had not judged my abilities?  What if I did not rely on someone else to validate my abilities?  What could I create?  What magic could I be?
Now, I am able to write with ease. It may not be grammatically correct, but I prefer to write how I speak.  It’s much more fun.  How did I accomplish this?  I know longer judge my abilities to write.  Instead, I choose subject that I enjoy and write about what gives me pleasure.  If someone else enjoys it great.  If not, I no longer need their validation.  I know that I received something from putting my thoughts down on paper.  If someone else receives something from it fantastic.  If not, oh well.

What if we can do this with more than just writing?  What if we could take on each project that provides fun and pleasure?  What if we got out of our brain, stopped judging our abilities and started creating with ease?  What magic could we create with everything that we attempted?
