What is magic?

 

“Magic = A shift of perception that changes your world.”
~ Maria Mar
Expanded Tip
The Dream Alchemist says: Before you try to do things to change a situation, take a minute to look at how you are perceiving the situation. Could it be perceived differently? How are others perceiving it? One shift of perception could solve a problem that never was or transform an obstacle into an opportunity.

Artspiration: Shadow

Artspirations
Shadow

“Shadow shapes the light.” Maria Mar
Extended Tip:
Among some spiritual circles there is an obsession with enlightenment. When you focus on the light and reject the shadow, you fall into an illusion of enlightenment that is pretty dangerous. I have seen people who believe they are enlightened when their behavior denounces them as arrogant, rigid, self-righteous and lacking compassion and kindness. Spirit taught me a lesson when I asked about the dance of light and shadow. Do this exercise: On a white paper draw a mountain with white pencil or hue. Can you see the mountain? Now use a shadow hue –whether gray or black– to go over the outline. Now you can see the shape of the mountain. ‘This is the use of Shadow,’ my Spirit Guides pointed out. ‘They show you the contours of your light.’” Maria Mar

Artspiration: Freedom

Artspirations
Freedom

“Choice is freedom. Habit is prison.” Maria Mar
Extended Tip:
“Make sure that you are responding from Free-choice and not from Habit-choice. The later is simply your Primary Response, a learned behavior. The former requires reflection and examination and perhaps transformation. The later is easier. You stay in your Comfort Zone, within the familiar. Yet, you are trapped in the Tiny Story that limits your brilliance. The former is harder. You need the courage to see what you may not want to see and then to change what needs to be changed. But it sets you free, as you can choose the response that is congruent with your brilliance and in so doing, you become your Sacred Self, an expression of Divinity.” Maria Mar

Artspiration-Judgment

“Judgment is jail.
Guilt is the gag.
Blame is the blindfold.
Shame is the shackle”
From Diary of Now 2017
Maria Mar (c) 2017
Extended Tip:
No matter how self-righteous you feel when you are judging others, judgment is the work of the Shadow (fear-based defensive Inner Self). The Shadow talks in absolutes, in right vs. wrong and good vs. evil. It imprisons you in concepts devoid of compassion and humanity and prevents true understanding. If you are judging yourself, you are probably repeating a story you learned as a child. It’s just a label. It’s not who you are. It does not help. Judgment is usually accompanied by more bullies: guilt, blame and shame. Guilt gags you and prevents you from speaking your truth from the heart, so that you can forgive and be forgiven if it is truly necessary. Blame is a blindfold because it distracts you from seeing the complexity of a situation, focusing your attention in whomever you decide to blame. Shame is a shackle because it binds you to it, acting as a glue that won’t let go. You are too ashamed […]
