Here at THE MAGIC HAPPENS you may have noticed we select a prompt for each issues theme. It’s fun, and for me very revealing, to see what ideas and stories are inspired by these prompts. With the relaunch of the magazine we’ve stayed with a single word for the prompt… this may not always be the case… but it appears to be working brilliantly right now.
I can’t remember there being a lot of thought put into any connection between the theme’s of consecutive issues but for some reason, as I pondered this issues prompt of ‘ASK’, I was tickled by the fact it followed the ‘LISTEN’ themed April issue. That’s because I have learned the value of listening before asking.
Now I realize most, if not all of us, as young children heard our teachers and/or parents remind us to listen before asking questions, this certainly saves us a lot of grief and confusion as often the questions that pop up as we listen to instructions/directions will be answered if we can still the mind chatter and pay attention until the speaker is complete with their message.
In the last issue I spoke about listening to you heart in my article Listen to Me — the thing I’ve learned about listening to your heart is that when you do, it inspires better questions which lead to inspired actions which result in greater magic happening in your life.
So let this issue remind you to follow your curiosity and listen and ASK… and know it will be given!
