For years, people have disciplined themselves through their focus on words. To change their consciousness and to create magic within their own lives, they create spells to manifest what they want. Entrepreneurs call these spells goal lists, Witches call them spells, Shamans call them Intentions, and Yoga instructors start each class with a Mantra. To put it simple, to cast a spell, is to spell. To use Grammar as a tool for your manifestation of whatever it is that you want to birth (create) in this life.
I'd say that words are probably my favorite manifestation tool. Although, I have been using Visual art for the last 5 years as a manifestation tool, I have always been at my core, a writer. A Magician. A Spell Creator. A Grammar Alchemist. But I decided that I needed to practice my creative powers through other outlets to get a new perspective on being more patient, graceful, and careful with my alchemy. my words. my thoughts. my spells. I mean, friends, words are powerful. They are so powerful because we think in words, we communicate in them, we dream in them, we create in them. They are a tool for each and every one of us and they can be used to create our own realities. To manifest our magic.
So, how do you manifest your magic? How can we make words universally work for anyone on this planet and involve our creativity? To start, It is YOUR WORK on this planet to discover your heart and to learn how to integrate it into this world. Are you manifesting your true intentions? The ones from your heart? Or are you manifesting something else? Did you know that manifestation comes from your creative powers? Did you know that YOU are filled with the alchemy that I am ranting about now. Even if you aren't a writer or an artist. You are an architect of your reality.
And that is why I think, no, I BELIEVE that if you are reading this right now, you need to know that you are in charge of your reality and there is only one way to believe that is true. By creating intention, by creating your own spell, by setting up an affirmation RIGHT NOW for you to FOLLOW. and by follow, I don't mean write one down and forget about it. No, I mean read it every morning, put a post it note on your bathroom mirror, make it your Iphone WallPaper, I mean, FOLLOW IT. Memorize it. Chant it until you believe it. Use Grammar to YOUR advantage and create something.
My husband laughs at me because I follow this practice and believe in it to my core. We could have a nice painting displayed in our dining room, but I instead have chopped up pieces of paper of different visuals that remind me of my affirmation for the year and different quotes and written boldly in the middle is my affirmation. This year, mine is, "Trust the Process. Be Patient. Believe the Vision." Simple words, but powerful when established in my daily lifestyle.
So, where do you want to start? I made a list of 5 suggestions for you to take. Pick one, tell me in the comments where it goes in your journey.
