This is a text I wrote at a time when I felt completely lost in my business. My "why" was gone and I didn't know where I was going. Yet, I knew sooner or later my purpose would become clear - and it did months later. For those of you who are in this dark place, I hope these words will help you be patient. This quote inspired me the text that follows:
"And suddenly you know it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings" - Meister Eckhart
What does this mean?
What is magic?
Why are new beginnings magic?
There is confusion. There is a feeling of being lost in a very dark forest. The forest is full of noises, smells and sensations you don't understand. You don't know if you can trust your senses. You don't know if you should be scared. You want to scream but you are scared to attract wild and dangerous animals that will harm you. You are terrified. You feel so alone. You’re paralysed. You’re confused. But you’re also full of hopes that it's all an illusion and that nothing wants to harm you. You want to trust but deep down you’re scared to trust. So where is the magic?
Maybe the magic is in the darkness. Because you don't see anything and you don't understand your surroundings, your only choice is to trust yourself. Listen to your intuition, stay silent, stay still and look up at the stars. Because it's so dark around you, you can see them clearly. They are always here even if you don't see them. They are a constant reminder that there is something out there, bigger than you or anyone else. You can trust them - you must trust them. You are made of stardust. You are a part of them and if you follow my intuition, you follow their guidance because you are them and they are you. Look up when you feel lost. You have guides outside of you and within you.
"Is that when it's at night that the stars shine" said Winston Churchill.
The magic is inside of you and around you. It's waiting patiently for you to grab it and shine.
The magic is in the silence. When there is silence, there is time and space to stop and reflect. The world is so full of opportunities. Your responsibility is to grab the one that feels right and go for it. TRUST that it's yours for the taking and no one else but you can make it happen your way.
The magic is in the unknown because everything is possible.
The magic is in people because they act as guides to help you.
Everything is possible.
So what do you want?
Even though you think you don't know, that is a lie. Deep down you have the answer. Stop resisting and allow the answer to come to you. Ask for help. You can trust the magic of new beginnings.
