Cue The Magic – 28 February 2022

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 25: Cue The Magic

“Life is playfulness… We need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us.” ~Flora Colao

“Imagine that the Universe is friendly and caring, and that it wants you to have everything you want in life. Because the Universe can’t just walk up and hand you what you want, it uses the law of attraction to give you signs and cues to help you receive your dreams. The Universe knows you have to feel gratitude to bring forth your dreams, so it plays its part in the game by giving you personal cues to remind you to be grateful. It uses the people, circumstances, and events that surround you in your day as your magic cues to be grateful. I works like this:

If you hear an ambulance siren, the magic cue from the Universe is to be grateful for perfect health. If you see a police car, your magic cue is to be grateful for safety and security. If you see someone reading a newspaper, it’s your magic cue to be thankful for great news…..

….There are unlimited and creative ways the Universe has to magically cue you to be grateful in your day-to-day activities. You can never misunderstand a magic cue or get a cue wrong, because whatever you think a cue is for, you’re right! The Universe uses the law of attraction to magically cue you, and so you always attract the exact cues that you need to be grateful for in that moment.”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

This week try to be alert to what’s around you. Try to identify at least 7 cues of gratitude from the events in your day.

Be grateful for what you have as well as what you would like in your life.

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.

Daily gratitude routine.

  1. When you wake up to a new day, before doing a single thing say, Thank You.
  2. Say, Thank you for the magical day I am going to have.
  3. From the moment you put your feet on the ground until you finished your morning routine, say the magic words, Thank You, in your mind for everything you touch and use.
  4. Go through my plans for the day in my mind and say, Thank you in advance for it going smoothly.
  5. Say, Thank you for the great news coming to me today!
  6. Count your blessings: Make a list of 10 blessings. Write why you’re grateful for each blessing. Reread your list and say “Thank you, thank you, thank you” Feeling gratitude for each blessing.
  7. Identify 2 relationships and write 5 things you are grateful for in the person. It can be a family member, a friend, a colleague even a pet. During the day say “Thank you, name.”
  8. Say thank your for your different body parts, organs and your senses. Be grateful for each of them.
  9. Four times a day read the words on the card slowly and be grateful for your health. (THE GIFT OF HEALTH IS KEEPING ME ALIVE.)
  10. Four times or more a day look at your Magic Bill and be grateful for the abundance of money you have been given in your life. (THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MONEY I’VE BEEN GIVEN THROUGHOUT MY LIFE.)
  11. While at work, look for things to be grateful for. Say to yourself. ‘I am so grateful for ……….’
  12. Try to go through the day without saying or thinking anything negative. If you think negative thoughts stop immediately and say but I am really grateful for…..
  13. Say, Thank you and be grateful every time you eat of drink something.
  14. When someone perform a service that benefits you, look them in the face and say, Thank you.
  15. For 90 seconds, say Thank you every time you take a step.
  16. Practice my heart magic.
  17. Take 5 deep breaths during the day and say, Thank you for the magical air that I breathe.
  18. Before going to bed, take your magic rock/gratitude rock in your hand and think about all the things to be grateful for that happened the day and say, Thank you.

RIP my baby boy 25 February 2022

Shadow

I am at a loss for words. God is really testing me this week.

Since Wednesday evening Shadow did not eat or drink anything. We thought maybe he caught a pigeon like he always do from time to time.

I knew something was wrong yesterday evening when I picked him up and he did not even purr. Normally as soon as I touch him he starts purring.

I looked all over for him this morning, but could not find him. Snuffels started barking and there Shadow was lying under the build in braai.

I decided to take him to the Vet immediately. He did a bloodtest and Shadow tested positive for the Leukemia and the Vet said that there is nothing he can do for Shadow.

My already shattered heart is in a trillion pieces now. I don’t think I will be able to take more heartache at this moment.

RIP my gorgeous boy. Thank you for all your love and kisses. You will live on in my heart forever.

My Gorgeous boy Shadow
