Dream Chasers – Do you Believe in Magic?

DSC_0052Hey Dream Chasers,

Do you believe in magic? I know I do. I’m a huge fan of all things magical and mystical.

I love Christmastime, Harry Potter, New Moon Rituals, and Disneyland. (In no particular order). I feel the magic in my kids and my dogs and in nature. I

When you step out of your comfort zone and move from dreaming to Dream Chasing, I think it’s really important to be pragmatic, realistic, and organized.

I also find it immensely comforting to invoke some magic in my day-to-day Dream Chasing.

Stepping out of your comfort zone can be…uncomfortable. Duh, right? And yet the lack of comfort as I move into the life of my dreams is strangely surprising and more than slightly off-putting to me.

When I get that tightness of anxiety building up in my chest, I know I’ve gotten out of touch with my own inherent magic – the magic that flows through each and every one of us.


 

Chances are, when I’m out of touch with the mystery one of the following is present:

– I’m tired

– I’m hungry

– I’m over-scheduled

– I’m taking my shit too seriously


 

I’ve talked before about my fondness for smudging and Energy Clearing. I’m a big fan of writing down all the stuff that’s getting me wadded up and burning it.

Another way to get back in the groove (or just accept that you’re temporarily grooveless, which is a relief in and of itself) is to meditate. As I promised when I initially introduced the Dream Chaser series, I’ve recorded a brief meditation to help you remember your magic.

This is also the first in what will become a regular feature here on ClumsyGrace called One Minute Meditations. Little meditative breaks throughout your busy day, designed to help you get back in touch with your fabulous, magical self. (Note: this one’s more like three minutes. Still. You have three minutes.)

You can access the first meditation here:

Additionally, you can enjoy my Magic Playlist and get your Friday groove on.

Of course, while I’m an admittedly huge fan of magical thinking, this isn’t going to absolve any of us from the actual work of getting down to chasing our dreams. It’s nice to sojourn and to dream, but remember that the difference between a dreamer and a Dream Chaser is that Dream Chasers take affirmative, strategic action in the direction of their dreams.

I’ve got the magic in me,

Er xo
