Real magic on Hallow's evening- making your dreams real

as dark closes in quietly, in a pale grey kind of way, i realise just a little too late that we are in that very special evening of the year- the all soul's evening, the Hallowe'en

I don't know if you feel like I do, but I have always loved the myth and mystery shrouding the truth that Anything is Possible.  This night- Halloween- and every night's night and dawn used to hold more promise when we hadn't got anything we wanted yet, and it was all in the future.  But in times of heightened desire, which these all are to us; I don't know what you are wishing for, but it could be

Better health
A more loving and challenging career with creative expression
A perfect relationship
Home & Family...

it's tempting when things are on an even keel to keep them there in the harbour-don't rock the boat by wanting too much, isn't it?  Lifes waters in this way can stay smooth for a while, especially when they have been turbulent for you.  Perhaps the trick is here not to let the feeling of inertia drown you, when you are used to the oxygenated bumps.  When we desire something but not so much that we'll inconvenience ourselves, the way forward is always to Make the Dream Bigger.  See you don't need to have a real- shortage to make a change.  So let's not create one, a real turbulence.  Making the Dream Bigger comes through really the enjoyment of thinking it through.  How would it make your life better?  In what ways would you enjoy it?  How might it enter your life (stay open!)?  Are you ready for it?  What will be the best bits?  What problems would it solve (stay feeling good!)?

Wishing upon a star works, because we clarify what we really want.  Thinking and talking positive works, because we are putting ourselves in a happy reality- and naturally, our environment has to respond.  Moreover, should we act- by dressing up, or wearing a poppy, or anything that is an "act"- it's not real until we are.  Bonfires can't ward of poverty if we feel poor inside.  Witches and fairies can't bring us evil or madness unless that desire exists in us.  This Halloween I am lighting my jam jars in pink, red and yellow to show community spirit and an honour to the farmers, who I know, at last have the resources they need not to worry about how harsh the winter may be.  And of course, to remember my own magic.

If we go for what we think we want, how can we be guaranteed of a happy outcome?

Last night I was unpacking a box which was sealed a few years ago, and came upon a card with the beautiful Desiderata written on it.  Here it is below, may it echo in your mind when a decision calls you to make the right choice.

Regarding making the right choice... have been fascinated lately with this Law of Attraction puzzle; How do we know if what we want- a trip to Paris, a bit of chocolate, that new job- will really bring us happiness?  If we go for what we think we want, how can we be guaranteed of a happy outcome?

Do you know the answer?

I was stumped!  And the question was pressing on me.  How could i know- in advance- if enjoying a few days wandering Paris...  soaking up the autumn sunshine, discovering boutiques and beautiful ideas and munching fresh boulangerie artisan, would be a happy and valuable journey... or just fraught with mishaps and ultimately unfulfilling?

then I discovered, through a random Abraham-Hicks quote, the answer.  And it's going to help me from now on in, with any craving that may arise.

"If the craving comes from an idea that feels good, that inspires and is joyous, a happy outcome is assured.  If it comes from a feeling of emptiness, reaching to fill a hole or compulsion that we should or must do it, then it'll be a struggle", the Law of Attraction reminds us.

Of course!  When in doubt, listen to the feeling. 

...go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth, quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and agressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will seem greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons stive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially do not feign affection.  Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all arricity and disenchantment, it is perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.  But do not distress yourself with imaginings. 
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.  Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe; no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.  And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever your labours and aspirations; in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.  With all it's sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be careful.  Strive to be happy.
