Theosophy has sharpened the focus. Spiritual essence in flight is the highest form of magic. Those who can, know what I am writing about.

Hi their sylvie,
It really is amazing when we come to terms with our own power. I just think that this is how we are all meant to live. It seems as though modern life with all it's stresses are anti-magic, everything is geared to make you forget what you are capable of.
You hit the nail on the head when you talk about the oneness you felt. I believe that this is the key. When you can truly feel as though you are a part of everything, it doesn't seem strange that you can affect everything. Why shouldn't you be able to conjure up a breeze, it is your environment, you are everything so why shouldn't be able to affect it.
As I mentioned in my thread, it is not a hope or a wish but rather a knowing.
You can open or close a door for instance and you don't say to yourself, I hope I can open this door, you just know from experience that if you turn the handle the door will open. It is the same with everything that you are capable of doing. It is a matter of doing it, acknowledging it, and then expecting it to happen as you intended.
I think that it is very hard to maintain your magic when your head is full of the mundane tasks of everyday modern life. It feels irresponsible to leave the essentials of looking after the children, feeding and clothing them to the power of your magic.
You now have to take care of others and so your trust in something coming out of the blue, has been taken over by your responsibility to physically make something happen. In affect you have put your magic into second place when it comes to providing.
It would appear to me that responsibility is what deprives us of just being.
I think you will always have good things happen for you, and you need to always hold onto the belief that things will turn out right even during the toughest times. You will always access your magic when it is essential because you know about it and trust it.
You are at stage in your life now, where you will not be able to fully access your power until your responsibilities diminish, when you get older and your kids can take care of themselves and you feel that it is only yourself that you have to take care of, then you can concentrate on just being you, and it will return.
I am not saying that you can't make things happen when you have responsibilities, it's just that it's harder to be carefree and to achieve that state of mind.
It it that "happy-go-lucky" attitude that comes without the worry of taking care of others, that makes it all work.
Yesterday I wrote something about this thread into my journal and how bummed I am that the "magic" left... then all of a sudden remembered at least a dozen incidents in the last few weeks that constituted the kind of "miracle/synchronicity" I've been used to. I guess I just have to pay more attention.

OK then peeps. A lot of good conversation here and ideas. Again, I am open to the possibility of reality creation or whatever we want to call it. So how about this. Lets get some people to are interested to see if all of us working together can manifest something in a certain location, or for a certain person. We use whatever power we think we have and focus on it.
Could be a good experiment if nothing else.
Anyone up for it?
