Stepping out of the Ordinary...Giving Divine Magic a Chance

Submitted by Open on Fri, 09/23/2016 - 07:26

So often I find myself sitting on a park bench, in the middle of a city or close to an airport as I wait for my next connection. But I'm never bored. I'm simply fascinated by this story called 'life'. What are all these people up to? Where are they heading? What are their aspirations and dreams? What gets them out of bed in a morning? Sometimes someone will pass by whose really awake, whose not stuck in the 'should does' and 'have to does'. Sometimes they're awake enough to feel my spirit engaging theirs. Their head will turn, for a moment our eyes connect, and a wry smile says... "Yes I know you, you're one of us. You're one of those who looks through the moment, feels it, and connects up the dots into the deeper meaning"...

Why live small?

Spiritual awakening - and living that way - is straightforward. It's not easy, but it is straightforward. It's looking 'out there', watching, feeling and observing, yet connecting with the reflection and how that resonates inside of you. It's trusting that this is what you're supposed to get. And no matter how subtle, that if you give that new sense a chance, it will ignite your wildest dreams, be the answer to everything you're truly searching for.

There's every reason why not to do it. The matrix has a zillion distractions, all purposefully configured to pull you into the drama and then own you. It has a zillion remedies, distractions and 'cures' for the pain it creates in you. Your senses are literally bombarded second by second, hour by hour, day by day. The brain simply can't cope with the overload so it forms a map over the incoming information and filters out the rest. Since reality is shaped by what you put your attention on, you literally begin to live the life you expect. And most often its a very limited life.

That is until you begin to challenge. Until you realise there's so much more to life than this, so much more to you than that. Why live so small?

Falling into the Unknown

This world is drawing to a close in the 3D. Surely you can see that now: an arctic practically without summer ice; 200 species of creature going extinct everyday - passing on into a higher density; the oceans acidifying at their fastest rate for 300 million years; the earth's magnetic field dwindling; earthquakes and volcanoes on the increase; the biosphere breaking down through storm and drought; natural resources petering out. So why hang on? Why grovel and grasp at final straws? It's time to let go. To fall off the cliff edge. To fall into the unknown.

The unknown is the place where it all begins. Stepping out of the safe and secure. Stepping out of the expected "But we've always done it this way". It's in the unknown that your soul looks for something else, for something different. As the mind surrenders, attention is directed by the universe to 'spiking' peak moments where consciousness comes alive. "Oh look at that person on the park bench". What's that twinkle in his eyes?" "What does he know?"

Expect the unexpected

It's when we're in the unexpected that a space for true magic can happen. It could be in the reflection from an ad on a billboard. It could be in the harmony of numbers on a car number shield or the lyrics of a song that you just happen to overhear which touches something in your heart and sings you awake.

If you're reading this, you probably already know exactly what I'm talking about... divine synchronicity. But it's not necessarily easy to trust in is it? "How could such simple connections be the answer to everything? How could it put food on my plate and a roof over my head?" Don't think so small. Or at least if you do, work to unravel that limitation. Give trust a chance.

Free wheeling - leave the space open

Just take a day, any day, and leave the space open. Pause. Breathe, open an internal space. Ask, "show me". Then take off letting the pull guide you. You'll make plenty of 'mistakes'. At least you may think they're mistakes - heading in the wrong direction, ending up in a blind alley, getting lost. There are no mistakes! Simply explore how each circumstance and event makes you feel. If you get tight, work into it, unwind and let go. Connect up with the heart once again. See where it takes you, how it expands you.

I recall a fond memory in the city of Oxford free wheeling this way once. It had been a magical day and I was about to head for home. "But just one more experience before I leave", I was thinking. So I turn down a side street and find myself bumping into a guy selling the Big Issue (a magazine which the homeless sell). "Can you give me a pound brother? I've got 20 minutes to get £20 for the hostel tonight." "Sure, let me take a look", is what I feel to reply. So I look in my wallet. There's no change. There's just one £20 note. It spiked in me. That's exactly what this guy needs. "But what about my journey home?", I'm thinking, "Maybe I'll need it?" But I can feel the pull already reaching in my wallet and taking out the twenty. I don't resist. I can feel the interplay of the divine at work. So I give the guy the money. What happens next is utterly priceless. Beyond value. The guy takes the twenty, jaw dropping open, "Thankyou brother, God Bless You!" Then tears begin to well up in his eyes and roll down his cheeks. He is so overcome at the generosity of a stranger and what it means to him that rivers of emotion are soon gushing down his face. Can you imagine how I felt about that? Can you imagine what it was worth to experience it? It was utterly priceless and I will remember it all the days of my life.

Step out of the ordinary today

So I invite you to step out of the ordinary today. Take the route less traveled. Even if it's only a different route to work. Put the not-so-smart phone away this time though. Lift your eyes and truly watch. Watch and feel. Let your heart take you. Give your soul a chance by stepping off that cliff edge into the unknown. We're living in a climate of change. Let change be your only constant. And you will not be disappointed.

Do check out the video in the lead article above, for some simple advice on picking up the magic of the flow as the energies on our planet shift to greater interconnectivity of 5D.

When the Summer Solstice hit, I felt supercharged by the Sun God to break out of my ruts and switch up my routines with increased physical activity, time in nature, healthier foods, deepening my commitment to compassionate eating.

I recall Open sharing when he stymied OC by being totally unpredictable and hard to track! Oh, yes!

Being in a rut feels like I'm under a spell. And when I change my routines, the spell is broken!

As far as giving magic a chance, look what happened to Ferris Bueller when he took a day off! Shake it up, baby! :)

I felt to post this for review again today. Often people tell me their lives, and their evolution, gets stuck in a rut. How do you break out?

I find change is a great engine in itself - so making even small changes to a routine - traveling a different way to work, learning something new, reading something different, meditating in a different way, a different place or at a different time. Then simply noticing what you see. Give the synchronicity a chance to speak to you in a different way.

In the journey of the soul, no moment is ever the same as another.

Let's embrace that.

Hi Jolucy,

You asked...

    "You said about shattering illusions....are they my illusions I'm shattering or am I shattering someone else's?"

If you've shifted internally and you feel like your soul is now pulling you in a different direction; if you feel differently to your partner because of what's happened, then the likelihood is that they're now living in an illusion about who you are and where you're at.

It's because people form these interconnected energetic 'bubbles' around their relationships. Mostly they're not actually relating to the person, but to the energetic imprint of their perception of the person. And if you've shifted, those perceptions will be out-dated. So to be true to them, is to true to ourselves and express clearly the new truth. Compassionate, of course, yes, but nevertheless express truthfully who you are.

In this way you give those that relate to you an empowered choice about you. And it very liberating for you, because you're not to hold up expectation and obligation.

Best wishes

Open *OK*


Hi Open, thanks for your response. I agree, throughout this, the one thing which has kept me strong is knowing that I am being true to myself and honoring that by expressing my truth. The truth can be a difficult thing to say, and to hear, but that is all there is.

You said about shattering illusions....are they my illusions I'm shattering or am I shattering someone else's? What about my children, maybe they have the least illusions out of all of us!

I have been feeling into the many varied emotions which have been arising, focusing on where they are located and reaching in and stirring up the root of the feeling. It's been really interesting seeing what has come up and giving thought to those emotions. I've been all the way back to my childhood, checking out how my life has been formed and molded. As you say, a golden opportunity to evolve. If nothing changes, nothing ever will change......:-)


There's nothing that beats that feeling when you give and see the joy in someone's face. I've been a giver my entire life and now it's being returned in so many ways. People actually have come up to me and said I was told to give this to you and handed me money. Giving is a circle and in our giving we must also learn to receive. Synchronicity will provide ways to give and also will bless you in unexpected ways. The Divine Magic makes life so much more exciting than cell phones or any other distractions!


Hi Jolucy I feel for you *give_rose*

Anyone who has ever truly stepped onto the path will have a good idea of what you're experiencing.

You said...

    "It feels like I’m about to shatter lives."

Are they lives you'll be shattering or illusions?

It is said "be true to yourself and then you cannot be false to any man." Are you really giving love and truth to another if you're not in truth? Is it kind to do so? I believe you know the answers.

Breaking up is always tough, but as long as you come compassionately from the truth, then it will all unravel itself in the right way. Everyone will get the best outcome because they will get truth. That's all you can ever truly ask.

Remember that as you begin making various steps, always feel the tightness as you step into them and work to unwind it. That's why you're experiencing it and its a golden opportunity to evolve.

Wishing you well

Open *OK*


Another timely article...I’m on the verge of stepping out right now, am I’m scared. I have a lovely house, home, family and partner. But something hasn’t been right for a long time, particularly as I’ve grown and changed while walking my path.
A couple of months back, I was struck by an energetic bolt of lightning while hugging a friend. It literally blew both of our socks off! Since then, pure magic has just been unfolding for us. There is absolutely nothing yet everything between us, a profound honesty, a love so pure and clear, no agenda. It’s like standing in front of a mirror when we are together. And the energy we can feel, it just feels unreal.
So, my existing relationship has come into question. Can I continue to live with this feeling of ‘not quite rightness’ between us? How can I ignore such a powerful relationship with this other person?
It’s been a roller coaster ride for all 3 of us since this has happened, we have all been through very dark places, but now the time has come for me to make my choice, should I stay or should I go. Should I follow my heart or my head? I know what the answer is, but it doesn’t make it any easier.
I feels like I’m about to shatter lives and it doesn’t feel good. I’m teetering on the cliff edge, can I jump? I don’t know.


I would notice the sparkle in your eyes Open when i saw you sitting on a bench. That's the kind of thing i'm receiving. it's when I take the blinders off and stop focussing on all the things the small 'I' wants that I can receive and allow in the gifts the Universe brings to me. Thank you for the inspiration!
