Enchanted
 
I have a lot to discuss over the next few weeks after my ‘I can do it’ cruise with Hay House authors Wayne Dyer, Caroline Myss, Doreen Virtue, Dr. Brian Weiss, Loretta LaRoche, Marianne Williamson and Cheryl Richardson.   What an amazing experience to be on a board a ship with 2000 other like minded individuals and some of the best spiritual authors and speakers of our time. 
 
While deciding what to write this week (in my jet-lag state) I got to thinking about a different kind of amazing experience I had while on holiday….I went to Disneyland.  It has been 20 years since I last visited the magic kingdom but the only difference between my experience then and now was how much taller I am! 
 
I remember reading once that Walt Disney wanted to create a place of magic after the Second World War to bring joy back to the world.  This is something that really stuck with me and when I went back to Disneyland as an adult and I began to appreciate what this meant.  As children we are so enchanted by the world and we believe in magic, fairytales and miracles.   When we start to get older the world tells us that such things do not exist and we soon stop believing. 
 
We can be such a serious and cynical society and often get weighed down by ‘stuff’ we consider is so important.  Many people need to use alcohol or drugs these days to feel the carefree and joyous feelings a child can experience in an instant.  But it does not have to be this way.  We are free to see the world any way we choose!
 
Loretta LaRoche who is the author of ‘Life is short, wear your party pants’ say’s that we need to laugh and play more for our health’s sake.  We need to release all that tension and stop worrying so much about everything.  Most of what we worry or fuss about is a complete waste of our energy and it is making us tired!  You do not need coffee you just need to lighten up and laugh more. 
 
Do you expect happy endings and miracles or do you expect things to be difficult?  Remember that things are not always what they seem and the Universe is always pointing you towards happy endings.  Marianne Williamson (author of ‘A Return to Love’) comments that in many fairytales the witch or ‘evil’ character represents our ego and the princess who has fallen asleep represents our forgetting of who we really are.  The prince comes with love and kisses the princess to wake her up which symbolizes truth waking the soul and overcoming the ego (the witch). 
 
After watching the floats of the Disneyland parade go by I made a decision to see the enchantment in life again and to remember the magic.  Children are wise, they get it and they see more than we see.  Take a leaf out of their book and get high on the simple things in life again.  You do not have to go to Disneyland to find that magic, it is everywhere if you choose to look through enchanted eyes. 
 
When you wish upon a star (Disney’s most famous song)
When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
 
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
 
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
 
Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true
 
Lyrics by Ned Washington
Performed by Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards)
 
Have a wonderful weekend! And may all your dreams come true.
 
Love and light
