So I've talked before about living your magic, this idea of symbolic or almost ritual actions regularly being more effective than big ritual things. I wanted to touch more on what that actually looks like in my day to day life. Sure, there's some pretty direct things, like job applications being essential for job searching and such, but there's a less direct way that I'll see these things work.
So, as I sat down to start writing this, it's alongside a practical effect here. I saw this working, and it prompted my thoughts here. Part of doing this whole readings thing is a LOT of messaging back and forth with folks. I don't really mind this, but I do often find myself having to set times that I focus on this, and batch responses in bigger batches, so I'm sitting down all at once to reply to many folks at once. Tonight was movie night with the kiddos, and quite often, I'll take the rest of the night off after that. I had a couple messages come in, although not enough to really respond to things with. Almost on impulse, I decided to go ahead and reply to those. This was something that I chose to do as that kind of almost magical action, it felt like the right thing to do at the time. I started to see folks come in for bookings literally as I did it. Not the same folks mind you, but folks that are utterly unconnected.
This kind of thing happens to me all the time. I'll add just a touch of intentionality to what I'm doing, and see this hint that I'm on the right track, in ways that can't be connected, and almost immediately. Looking for a job? The last time I did a real job search, the call for the interview that ultimately got me my job came when I went to get my haircut. What these things are don't present themselves, you just learn to know what is important. It doesn't work everytime, but enough for you to know you're on the right track.
