Day 12 of 28 days Magical Challenge
“At times our own light goes out and it rekindled by a spark from another person. Each one of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965)
Every one of us has received help, support, or guidance from other people at particular times in our life when we needed it most. Sometimes another person alters the course of our lives through their encouragement, guidance, or just being there at the right time. And then life goes on, and we tend to forget those times when one person touched us or changed our life. Sometimes you don’t even realize the impact a person had until well into the future when you look back on your life and realize that a particular person was pivotal in magically changing the direction of your life for better.
The person may have been a teacher or coach, an uncle, aunt, sibling, or any family member. They may have been the person who introduced you to your current partner or to a particular interest that became one of your greatest passions. Maybe they were someone you didn’t even know, and they appeared in your life very briefly, performing a random act of kindness that touched you to the core.
Today, you’re going to think about the magical people who have impacted your life. Find a quiet place alone sometime during the day today, sit down, and think of three extraordinary people who have made a difference in your life. Once you have your three people, work with one person at a time, and talk out loud to each person as though they were present, telling him or her the reasons why you’re grateful to them, and how they affected the course of your life.
Magical Practice 12
Magical People Who Made a Difference
1. Count Your Blessings: Make a list of ten blessings. Write why you’re grateful. Reread your list, and at the end of each blessing say thank you, thank you, thank you, and feel as grateful for that blessing as you can.
2. Find a quiet place alone sometime during today, and make a list of three people who made a difference in your life.
3. Work through the list one person at a time, and while talking out loud tell each person the reason why you’re grateful for them, and exactly how they affected the course of your life.
4. Just before you go to sleep tonight, hold your Magic Rock in one hand, and say the magic words, thank you, for the best thing that happened during the day.
This is again an amazing way to reconnect with people who made some significant contribution to our life and thank them for being there for us when we needed someone.
