The Magic of Cross Training
"Cross Training" is a term from sports but it has handy applications for ordinary, or perhaps magical, life. Cross training is when a skill you develop in one sport can be used in another sport. For working magic in your life you can take the skill of the aura or feeling that fits with one activity and take that aura to another activity. For example, being lonely makes it hard for me to work by myself. I'm just a little bit more enthusiastic about life when I'm around people I like. So I soak up this enjoyment when I am around my favorite people. It is a skill to be able to enjoy other people. Then I bring this skill from the social game and let this golden aura help my solitary writing game. I say to all wise magicians, look for things in one area of your life that help you function at a high level. Then see if you can transfer that to another part to help you function in that other aspect. Let's use magic in any way we can to win at this game of life. May the spark be with you.
