Everyday Magic is subtitled  – How to Live a Mindful, Meaningful and Magical Life. It’s the subtitle that gives us a hint of what the overall intent is for the book. As you begin to move through the pages it becomes very clear that this is not about mysticism but about the magic that we can all put back in to our everyday lives. How we can be mindful of all of the day to day things – Nature, Gratitude, Service and Creativity – to add some of the magic or awe back into our lives. This book speaks to Everyday Magic.


The authors are clear that this type of magic can not be forced or manufactured. To truly invite and embrace magic into our lives we need to have the “space” within our hearts and minds so that we are to open to receiving. The authors begin by talking about self-love and self-care to open that space. Not only do they talk about what self love is, but they articulate what it is not. This is very helpful as sometimes we are unable to create an ideal situation and the exercise of understanding what we don’t want is a much more simplified process. As the book progresses the authors have set up a section in each chapter called Author’s Insights where they share relevant personal experiences. They have also included exercises that allow you to stretch and move into the capabilities of the concepts they present. To allow for additional self reflection they have included some Journaling Exercises.


They have touched on most of the areas where we can see magic if we are open to seeing it – Connecting to Source, Universal Laws, Miracles and Death. The last chapter has been called – Conclusion: Everyday Magic is Right Where You Are….


In addition to providing this great resource in a workbook style they also include a section for further reading so that we can explore these concepts in more detail. If you are looking for ways to explore mindfulness outside of the practice of meditation – I’d highly recommend that you pick up a copy of Everyday Magic.
