Calling Forth The Spark

You may not realize how easy it is to switch channels, to change moods, to call forth the spark of magic of which I so often speak. Try some of the following experiments and you may be happily surprised. Put your chin down towards your chest and turn down the corners of your mouth. Do you notice a dour mood suddenly lurking right behind your eyes? Now give a slight shake to your head and open up your eyes? Do you want to look upwards a bit and does a more hopeful mood sit there, right behind your eyes? These positions and movements are triggers for certain moods. Triggers that you can control. You can set it up for it to be a habit to call forth the spark of vitality that gives you energy to make a positive movement or decision.
Other things may act as triggers for you. You can find them and set them up. They will be simple and quick. Simply deciding to take on a more pro-active way of acting and thinking can become a trigger in itself. I've often heard it said that the way to get started on a challenging task is to blow on your hands and just get started. The idea that you can remind yourself about getting on the right path is a very old idea. The Old Testament of The Bible talks about wearing blue tassels to remind yourself to do good. But no matter how old an idea is, when you first discover it, it is brand new to you. I ask you to find new, creative ways for you to call forth that spark of magic, the zing that will help you make your life better.
