Please Note- I am sharing the information the book Magic during this 21 day nationwide lockdown as no one can buy new books right now. Once the lockdown is over, I will be deleting these post and recommend you purchase this lovely book :)
Imagine if you wore the only person on Earth; you would have no desire to do anything. What would be the point in creating a painting if no one could see it? What would be the point of composing music if no one could hear it? What would be the point of inventing anything in there was no one to use it? There would be no reason to move from one place to another because wherever you went would be the same as where you wore – no one would be there. There would be no pleasure or joy in your life.
It’s your contact and experiences with other people that give your life joy, meaning, and purpose. Because of that, your relationships affect the life more than anything else. To receive the life of your dreams, it’s vital that you understand how they are the most powerful channels for gratitude to start magically changing your life.
Science is now confirming the wisdom of the great sages of the past, with research studies showing that people who practice gratitude have closer relationships, are more connected to family and friends, and have other people look upon them favorably. But probably the most astounding statistic that has come out of research studies is that for every one complain about another person, whether is thought or word, there have to be ten blessings for the relationship to flourish. Any less than ten blessings for every one complaint and the relationship will deteriorate, and, if the relationship is marriage, it will most likely end in divorce.
Gratitude makes relationships flourish. As you increase your gratitude for any relationship, you will magically receive an abundance of happiness and good things in that relationship. And gratitude for your relationships doesn’t change only your relationships; it also changes you. No matter what your temperament is now, gratitude will give you more patience, understanding, compassion, and kindness, to the point where you wont even recognize yourself. The little irritations you once felt and the complains you had on your relationships will disappear, because when you’re truly grateful for another person, there’s nothing you want to change about that person. You won’t criticize, complain about, or blame them because you’re too busy being grateful for the good things about them. In fact, you won’t even be able to see the things you use to complain about.
Magical Relationships 1. Repeat steps one to three of Magic Practice Number 1 - Count Your Blessings: Make a list of ten blessings. Write why you're grateful. Reread your list, and at the end of each blessing say thank you, thank you, thank you, and feel as grateful for that blessing as you can. 2. Choose three of your closest relationships and collect a photograph of each person. 3. With the photo in front of you, write five things you are most grateful for about each person, in your journal or on your computer. 4. Begin each sentence with the magic words, thank you, include their name, and what you're specifically grateful for. 5. Carry the three photographs with you today, or put them in a place where you will see them often. Look at the photographs on at least three occasion, speak to the person's face in the photograph, and thank them by saying the magic words, thank you, and their name. Thank you, Hayley. 6. Before you go to sleep, take your Magic Rock in one hand, and say the magic words, thank you, for the best thing that happened during the day.
