Bringing Magic to the Mundane

 

Do you know that moment when you’re deep into a yoga practice, music blasting, breath and body flowing, and suddenly there just seems to be more light and brightness, more air, more JOY surrounding you. THAT is the magic that we want to find daily. That breathtaking feeling is the harmony of the Mind, Body, and Spirit coming together as One. 

It is my belief that we don’t necessarily need to be participating in something as magical as Yoga to get that overwhelming feeling of MAGIC throughout your body. It is also my goal to find it daily, even for just one special moment. 

With each of these suggestions, see if you can connect into the breath, truly feeling the flow of air entering into your body and releasing out. Find your senses – all of them – and see if you can find stillness within even if the body is moving. And finally, bring in a sense of AWE and Curiosity ~ Exploring the moment in detail as if it’s the only moment that has ever existed. 

Try out this mental method of creating Magic while doing the most Mundane of things:

  • Washing Dishes
  • Showering
  • Walking the Dogs
  • Doing Laundry
  • Vacuuming
  • Taking a Stroll Through a Park
  • Taking Your Vitamins
  • Getting Dressed
  • Taking a Seat Mindfully
  • Starting the Car and Preparing to Drive
  • Eating Lunch
  • Drinking Tea
  • Journaling
  • Reading
  • Balancing Your Checking Account
  • Clearing Out Your Phone
  • Cleaning Out Your Purse
  • Folding Towels

These are some of my most favorite times to connect inward and create magic around myself. Play with the sensations you can conjure within yourself during different points throughout the day. Find what feels good and then repeat. See if you can invoke that intense feeling of MAGIC in the most Mundane of tasks. 

I’d love to invite you to come to my class and chat with me about your own journey to Magic. It is a beautifully unique path for each of us and I’d be honored to hear of your magical moments. 

Breathe Well and Shine On.
