The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.
I have learned a lot recently. Going from a corporate attorney to a Feng Shui expert is a bit of a mind f*%k.
One part of my brain loves hard, cold facts. No risk. Just calculated, "responsible" decisions. Then we have the other part of me which truly believes in magic. Somewhere deep down inside there is a gold ball of truth that aches to prove the reality of magic. Ha. Prove the reality of magic, the lawyer will never die.
But it's caused a lot of discontent in my life. We have practicality and we have magic. So what does one do? Well, for me, it's my quest of the ages. To find that beautiful harmony of both. Practical Magic. Ohhhh, there it is. Practical Magic. Even saying it breathes a magnificent air of life into my soul.
This is a balancing act. Lots of reality checks. And at the same time never letting a dream die. Feng Shui is all about harmonizing the energy in your home or work space so that life force flows so freely that you are propelled to your highest vibrational living. Not bad. Ohh, but there is the attorney in me saying, "Oh for the love of God, you hippy punk, what happened to you?" You see the battle.
So, how do I make it work? Results. The results have been so phenomenally stunning that there is no way to deny it. I Feng Shui'd the offices of Procter and Gamble. ME! Feng Shui'ing P&G. Haha!!! Now that's magic. Who wouldn't want harmony everywhere in their life!? They like results. They like maximizing space. Increasing profits and the wellness of the employees. And deep down, everyone wants magic.
And guess what, I still have my magic. I still have my practicality. And the result? I watch people's lives change in such incredible ways that sometimes all I can do is laugh and cry.
Why am I telling you this?
Don't let Practical Magic die. I almost did. And it killed me
It's real. It's more real than real. I know. I have witnessed it. I have lived it. And while I still struggle to balance both, I know so deeply in my core this life is meant to be a dance of gold fairy dust, and a tax paying, business owner.
Believe in Practical Magic. Don't ever let it die. It's just too damn beautiful.
