How A Little Kid’s Tantrum Turned To Magic
I started reading The Magic because it looked to me as a really hands on approach to The Secret. The exercises were very simple but yet they looked to me to be too good to be true. How could just expressing gratitude be the key to everything?
Nevertheless I started the exercises and yesterday I read the chapter about expressing gratitude really from your heart.
Wow, what was that ?!?!
The next day I woke up with one of my daughters having a tantrum the whole morning making my wife and me completely crazy. Combined with the stress of going to work meant that we were both on the edge.
So I dropped off my kids at school informing the teacher of my youngest that she had a difficult morning.
I stepped in to my car and thought “Well so much for The Secret”. But then a little bell rang. Let’s try something different. Let’s try feeling gratitude from my heart.
So I started and I felt grateful for my wife, my kids, my work, my parents, and tried to really feel it from the heart and smiling. I think that is also a key to feeling grateful, smiling.
And The Magic was unveiled to me! I saw a traffic light which was supposed to turn on red, so what I asked was”Thank you for remaining green”. The traffic light stayed on green.
Then I drove behind a couple with a very old car driving 20 km below the speed limit. I said: “Thank you for turning away. And after a couple of kms they made a left and I had the whole street for me.
This day has not yet finished so I am wondering what is coming up next.
But I want to say thank you already for everything that happened this morning including my daughters tantrum because it really turned on The Magic!
Hope to share some more stories in the future.
