Holiday magic…real or not real? One of my favorite songs speaks of the magic that is within each of us. The magic within the Christmas story and Jesus’ birth continues to have human vessels. Just as the song tells us, what made mountains move, and rose Jesus from the grave is alive, and “the same power…lives in us.” Whaaatt??!!
A few years ago, I explained to my three year old that God’s magic took our doggie to heaven overnight. She looked very sad for a moment then said “I wish I had magic powers too!” I laughed at how she lamented the absence of her magical powers over the death of our dog!
Additionally, I recently explained to my children that vital essence of Santa’s magic is our ability to use our imagination to believe in the unseen.
What I’ve come to realize, is that our magic is real (my daughter will be so happy!). Through God we are more. It’s the realization that the movement of our body, our thoughts, words, and reactions can all be extensions of Him and his word if we let it. The same power alive in Jesus is very alive in us. God loves us so much, he gave us his Spirit…that’s not something you can wrap to place under the tree—it’s perfectly wrapped and placed within.
The physical therapist’s therapeutic spin–
To ignite some holiday magic, remember that the same power that creates miracles, and converts cynics is alive in you. To completely heal we must recognize, believe, and connect with the God force within. The Spirit is patiently waiting for you to spark the flame. Recent cell research has shown that the power of our mind is more determinant upon our health than genetics. Think about that! YOUR THOUGHTS determine your health more so than inheritance. So BELIEF is the key…belief that you are more, and that you can heal and co-create a miracle from within. To me, that’s a clear sign of the magical Spirit He sent to keep within.
