Interrupting is a Magic Wand
At times the urge for Magic to come to our rescue is a recognition that we aren't happy with the way we are thinking and don't know how to get to a better place. We may be feeling negative thoughts but know that it might be dangerous to try to supress them. The more we deny that we want that piece of chocolate cake, the more likely we are to eat three pieces when we finally quite resisting the desire. At times like this there is one "magic wand" that we can use. That is humor. If we were to imagine that piece of cake growing green hair, taking a place on a stage and singing to a funny audience, perhaps of fat Alice in Wonderland caterpillars, we might be able to get away from the desire to grab the cake and gobble it down. Other times we can go with the desire or urge and exaggerate it until it loses its hold over us. Whatever way we choose to move away from the darkness of not having the magic we want, is a good way. Don't suppress. Examine and play with the negative thought. Magic is yours. Find your magic wands. Use humor. Use movement. Take deep breaths. Do what it takes. Do not suffer from the lack of magic. May the spark be with you.
