Heart to Heart 374


Lou Ann and I were watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  It is another J. K. Rowling rollicking, fun adventure.  One of the main characters is called No-Maj., meaning he doesn’t do magic.  In the wizarding world, in the Harry Potter books, they were called Muggles.  It reminds me that all of us have some of these qualities in us.  There are definitely times when I feel like a No-Maj and things are an effort to accomplish.  And then there are times when it almost feels like I could cast a spell and make my dreams come true.  Far fewer of those, so far for me.

Then I recall, many years ago, I learned how to do personal treasure mapping.  We would gather up all sorts of pictures, written articles, symbols and put them on a white poster board to create our life dreams.  It was fun going through all the material and create a gorgeous display that was often hidden in my heart.  Just the act of placing them on a board in living color, gave me a lift.  Then life would get in the way, meaning me!  I would stash them away in some closet out of sight.

Then we would clean out that closet or get ready to move and discover it hidden, rolled up and dusty.  Then the magic part of us would appear.  When we opened them up and flattened them out, we would cheer!  So many of the things we desired to do had manifested, not all but a lot!  Then I would realize that some part of me was working on my life almost like magic.  A part of me that was a wizard at doing what my soul intended was smiling.  If you have not done treasure mapping; I urge you to do so.  There is enough “No-Majing” going around.  Let us discover the amazing talents and gifts we keep hidden and create magnificent lives!  From my magic heart to yours, Thomas
