If you are reading this blog, chances are you feel in your heart a deep burning to be part of making the world a better place. You have carried within yourself a vision of a different world than the one in which we have been living. You know that as a species we are capable of so much more than what we have settled for in the past 5000 years. You know in your heart that human beings are capable of creating a planet that lives in harmony and peace, that understands that it is care for (rather than dominion over) our planet that will sustain us, that love and unity are entirely possible if we put our minds (and hearts) to it. You know that you are here for this reason and you will not rest in peace until this reason has been accomplished. The problem is that most of your life you have felt alone with these thoughts and entertaining this vision has likely put you in conflict with most of those around you, the institutions in which you were raised and the “tribal” rules of your family and the communities in which you found yourself living. In order to heed the voice of your Soul/heart, you had to step outside the status quo, rock the boat and disturb the sh.t; or the pain of rejection was just too great a risk and so you hid your gifts away hoping you wouldn’t be seen for the PROPHET you are.

The good news is that you are not alone, the time of hiding has come to an end and the world is finally ready for our vision and our gifts (or there are finally enough of us waking up that the scales have tipped and the world can no longer ignore or resist our presence and our mission). As Stephanie Azaria (TheCosmicPath.com) mentioned last week, “we are catching up with ourselves.” In other words, the reason and purpose for our lives and our unique call is finally catching up with the vision we have held onto all these many years.
For me, it is all about the magic – specifically the magic that will create our world anew – the magic that inspired me first through fantasy in the forms of Samantha Stevens (Bewitched), Morticia Addams, Sally Owens (Practical Magic), Rowan Mayfair and Michael Curry (The Witching Hour), Obi Wan Kenobi, Merlin and Morgan LeFay, Galadriel and Gandalf the Grey. I have known in my heart of hearts, in my Soul of Souls that magic is not only possible but quite real. I have also known that we don’t have to wiggle our nose to make magic happen but that it simply arises out of our beings when in partnership with the Divine and the highest purpose of our Soul. Jesus called this magic FAITH. As I have come to understand it, faith is not an act of will as has often been interpreted, but is instead and natural unfolding of our Soul’s purpose when we are courageous enough to get our minds out of the way. Faith produces miracles and requires no effort on our part except to get out of the way. While we may need to take action on the Divine guidance offered, nose wiggles and magic wands are not usually required to get the job done.
Magic, I believe, is what will make our world anew and as I see it, magic is already happening. Magic is happening for me in the miraculous way my initial vision of reforming The Church has ultimately come to pass, but ironically I no longer feel the need to reform or change anything. I simply feel called to continue the work Jesus did of bringing people to LOVE and teaching them about ONENESS. The rest, I have learned, is taking care of itself. In heeding this call, a new/original model of church and priesthood have emerged on their own – not by my efforts to change things, but by my willingness to do nothing. As if by magic, something new and wonderous has emerged. As it grows, its roots reach deep into the earth and its branches reach out to embrace the wider world and soon this tree will be seen by all. This tree is showing the world a new/original way of supporting humanity in its individual and collective psycho-spiritual growth – the kind of growth that helps to support the birth of a new and more loving world. Now, if that isn’t magic, I don’t know what is!
And, I’m not alone. Each and every one of you has your own unique vision, mission and purpose for this life. You have held this vision in your heart and if you are honest with yourself, it BURNS within you. This vision is waiting to be acknowledged, nurtured and cultivated so it can find its own roots and branches, supporting the new life that is waiting to be born through you. The world has caught up with your vision and now it is time for you to set it free!
