Magic Against Predators And Dangers
The magic mind-set is one of alertness, not one of hiding your head in the sand. If you are the magician, holding the wand that creates a better life, it means you are the one in charge. Being in charge means being aware of the environment and circumstances. You have all the power in the world to accept the fact of predators and dangers. However, since many predators seek out the weak you probably won't draw them to you. Program yourself that predators and dangers may be there and that in order to keep to your purpose you will deal with them if necessary. Keeping to your purpose is the important thing. There are many ways to avoid foolish risk. Don't drive drunk. Notice if your environment is unsafe. Read contracts before signing. Clarify requests. Notice when you are in an emotional state that might cloud your judgment. Be aware when your resources and energy are low. Plan ways to renew your energy or resources. In stories about magicians I notice they are taught to calm their mind before chanting a spell. A calm mind is a magical tool in itself, even if danger is not around. Fear is meant to alert you. Be alert but do not let fear control you. Pull that spark of magic to you to help you deal with an adverse situation and put yourself on the road to a better life.
