Feeling Magic

imageMagic is everywhere! My day began at 5.40am when I pinged awake. I was rather surprised to wake up so easily as I’d spent half the night trying to ground some powerful energy beaming it’s way in through me. My alarm was set for 5.45am anyway as I had booked on a Self-Publishing Conference in Leicester with my good friend Jan Booth. We had to be there for the 9.30am start. As I headed up into the mist on the top of the moor five magpies flew by. Five for silver! I knew it was going to be a day full of magic. As I drove along two hares crossed my path. Beautiful, magical creatures running alongside my car. Transferred into Jan’s car the mist slowed us down a little. The motorway also had a complicated diversion through Wakefield but somehow we drove into a parking spot right in front of the conference building exactly on time. With time for a relaxing cuppa we started our day of discovery.

I’ve been working on a book for some time, on and off, gathering bits and pieces of my written work. The book has been slow to build because I’ve had quite a bit of resistance to overcome. Writers block has been my challenge for quite a few years. My lovely friend Maxine and I went to a Hay House writers weekend a couple of years ago so I could get some confidence in my written voice. That moved me forward a little. I was encouraged to write a couple of online articles and attempt a regular blog. More recently I began a regular monthly Wellbeing article in our local Valley Life magazine. Then last December I began my daily blog challenge. The idea was to write for thirty days. Slowly the magic of writing filled my life. I kept writing each day. I found I wanted to expand some blogs way past the ‘normal’ blog length. So parts of my blog have become the basis for more work into my book. Now I’m a long way past the thirty day total and love ending my day with a piece of writing.

Today was all about gaining more confidence to complete the book and get it out in a printed or e-book format. Each session has magically answered questions, suggested options and made me realise that I’m further on than I expected. Jan and I sat and ate our fab lunch rather reluctantly as we discussed the sessions and what we had found out. All around us other attendees were doing the same. There was a great deal of excited chatter. The magic of the event was inspiring everyone it seemed. Heading back into the afternoon session I suddenly felt rather awed. I’m going to be an author, I thought. I don’t know why being a writer isn’t quite the same as being an author. I felt distinctly different though. Sometimes confidence can be a matter of the words we use to describe ourselves. There is a magical feeling in owning the author in me. It seems that I have opened up another door of opportunity. As we sat down this afternoon the title for my book dropped into my head. More magic! 

I love how synchronicity flows through my life. I have been in exactly the right place at the right time to meet the right people and gather the right information. This evening I have a head full of new stuff to consider. There are decisions to be made. I want to write and write and write. My book is a reality that will be here soon. All the waiting and inner work has brought me to this interesting spot. It’s really no surprise that yesterday I finally arranged to take myself off for a week later this month. I knew the pressure to complete the first draft of the book was almost overwhelming. After today I understand why. I hope you have had a day of feeling the magic too.

Day 173 of my blogging challenge.
