Day 39: Did you know that your Magical Child, that curious and joyful aspect of you, is really your Soul? And it wants nothing more than to play in the sandbox of creation.
For thirty nine days you’ve been flirting with synchronicity, dancing with deja-vu and cavorting with audacious magic. You’ve been willing to abandon reason for a reckless adventure into wonderment. Alice and her rabbit hole, Harry Potter and his Owl-delivered Hogwarts invitation and you and your 40 Day Magic Challenge have one thing in common—a willingness to risk the known for the unknown.
You are in the uncharted territory of enchantment, but have you noticed? It’s not a landscape of quicksand, booby traps and land mines. Rather, it’s a playground. Can you feel it? Do you sense you have entered an alternate reality that is not only more real than your regularly scheduled life, but saturated in a lightness of being that is your…well, birthright?
I’ve lived my life by this quote, as if these words by Thomas Moore are tattooed on my soul:
“The soul has an absolute and unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thoughts.”
The loss of enchantment is the loss of soul in this world. The Age of Reason, however, is giving way to the Age of Re-Enchantment. And you, by being a part of this Forty Day Challenge, are an intricately interconnected element in what is being called for in the collective remembering of the magic of what and who we are.
This video (which is unlisted because the website I reference is still under construction) speaks to the heart of my passion for enchantment. Here it is: Can you feel enchantment matters to your soul too?
Assignment: Today your Magical Child wants to play. It’s simple. Make a play date with your soul. Ask it: What does play look like today? If you don’t hear an answer right away, look for signs. In fact, let your Magical Child take the lead and show you where, when, how play will arise.
One of my favorite forms of play is being creative. A break in my day to doodle, draw, or write a poem feels like play. Making a fun video feels like soulful frolic. But every soul feels the urge to play in it’s own way. So just stay open and follow the clues!
