Day 27 of 28 days Magical Challenge
“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.” – –Kahlil Girbran
You can spend the rest of your life running around trying to beat the outside world into the shape you want, chasing one problem after another trying to fix them, complaining about situations or other people, and never succeed in living your life to the fullest and realizing all of your dreams. But when you make the magic of gratitude your way of life, everything in the world around you magically changes – just like that. Your world magically changes because you changed, so what you are attracting changes too.
In the inspirational words of Gandhi and in the lyrics of Michael Jackson’s song, “Man In The Mirror”, which impacted hundreds of millions, one of the most powerful messages of all time was delivered:
Change the person in the mirror, and your world will change.
If you have followed the 26 magical practices to this point, you have changed! And even though it is sometimes hard to see the changes in yourself, you will have felt the change in your happiness, and you will have felt the changes in your happiness, and you will have seen the change of improved circumstances in your life and the magical changes in the world around you.
You have practiced the magical power of gratitude for your family and friends, for your work, money, and health, for your dreams, and even for the people, you come across each day. But the person who deserves your gratitude more than anyone else is you.
When you are grateful to be the person in the mirror, feelings of dissatisfaction, discontentment, disappointment, or I’m-not-good-enough completely disappear. And with them, every dissatisfying, discontenting, and disappointing circumstance in your life magically disappears too.
Negative feelings about yourself cause the greatest damage to your life because they are more powerful than any feelings you have about anything or anyone else. Whenever you go and whatever you do you take those negative feelings with you in every moment, and those feelings taint everything you touch, and they act as a magnet, attracting more dissatisfaction, discontentment, and disappointment with everything you do.
When you are grateful to be you, you will only attract circumstances that make you feel even better about yourself. You have to be rich with good feelings about yourself to bring the riches of life to you. Gratitude for yourself enriches you!

2. Each time you look at yourself in a mirror today, say thank you, and mean it more than you ever have before.
3. If you’re really brave, while looking in the mirror say three things you’re grateful for about yourself.
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.
