The Magic Of Movement
The times we most need magic are when we are stuck, when we can not move forward, or even sideways, but are stuck in a putrid stagnant place. Physical movement can help us make mental progress and vice-versa. Many times a brisk walk can clear our minds and help us know what we need to do in order to move forwards. One thing to remember about movement of any kind is that it is usually sequential. Little steps lead to big strides. Some of the people I have been observing this year who can't seem to get anywhere in their life won't take sequential steps towards their goals. They won't identify the steps to take or the obstacles to overcome. Some of them seem to think that words alone will create the movement needed. Words can be powerful, I agree. But they are not the only tool that is needed to gain achievements. It seems obvious that certain actions are needed but some people will not walk, or move, toward their desires. They will hop like grasshoppers in several directions, then hop in other directions. Then they will say they have changed their goals. The essential dream does not change. The way of expressing it may. The hoppers don't notice this. They just say, "I'm gonna do this, or no, I'm gonna do that." If you want to succeed at anything, find a way to move towards that dream. Some of the time your movement will have to be towards getting information. But let the energy of the magic that is around you help you clarify your goals. That will draw you forwards. Monitor your movement. Get others to help you. Those are both important. Purposeful movement is in your power. May the spark be with you.
