THAT MAGIC!

Version 2

Whilst I was meditating this morning… I was driven to interrupt this not-really-meant-to-be-interrupted moment…to watch Susan Boyle on YouTube. She just came to me… it was indeed her now infamous Britain’s Got Talent performance of “I Dreamed A Dream.”

Susan wanted to sing like Elaine Paige… and the next video… I watched Susan Boyle sing with Elaine Paige. From “Phantom of the Opera,” their magnificently synchronistic duet “I Know Him So Well” is simply the utmost. Another dream come true!

I’ve seen Susan Boyle’s “I Dreamed A Dream” video many times, but each and every viewing, I am swelled to tears. Why? I know what’s coming…

But what is it? What makes me cry so? Susan – making her dream come true on stage at that very moment? Her actually singing about her dream…She simply said she always wanted to perform in front of a large audience – and thus. History is made. And we can relive it again and again. It’s magical.

I think that’s it. We are witnessing her splendor of making magic. The magical moment a dream comes true. And that experience… it’s only a few minutes long. But it is life-changing. When we practice our dreams coming true, when we truly BELIEVE, magic happens. It is our intention.

MAKINGIT

We use our intention throughout the day without a single blink of thought to it. Our intention is our thoughts. I could pick up that piece of trash, I shall and I will. Another sip of coffee. Another scroll of Insta.  A change of the radio. A thought of peace in the whirl of the whirl of the whirl. Halloween is Happy New Year for us witches. Time to practice practical magic for the good of all! Time to get into ACTION and properly use my INTENTION. Keep the mind FOCUSED and ON POINT and join together, so we can all make a dream come true.

HALLOWEEN! Day of New Year, Samhain, All Souls honoring. We must cast our MAGIC for the good of all and for the change each of us wants to create in our own lives. We can have our MOMENT. We can have our NEW. We can MAKE MAGIC and share our own SPECTACULARness. And be GRATEFUL as we do, as we can, as we WILL!

Have a MAGICAL, MOMENTOUS DAY AND YEAR! BLESSED BE!!

YOU ARE A BRIGHT STAR!

It is early HOT morning, LOVE! Los Angeles at its finest in the Fall, quieter, birds are freely flying and sun is rising! Happy 1st of October!                                                                                    blackmoonspell In MISS FANCY PANTS our heroine begins her new life on the 1st of October. Fitting that last night and tonight is the Black Moon! That means two New Moons occur in one month! Did you do your spell? We did! Here is our new white candle burning bright. An exquisite red rose from my “Woman of Achievement” honoring on Wednesday night from The NAPW Los Angeles Local Chapter and gorgeous white fleurs from fabulous World of Wonder who sent their congratulations because of my honor as Woman of Achievement. Thank you to the amazing women of the NAPW and to dear Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Thairin Smothers at World of Wonder. Especially to my husband, Eduardo Magana, who brought it all forward, because truth be told – I was hiding this honor all along!

But it is the BLACK MOON my friends! Time for letting go of old patterns, old beliefs, old habits and ways of thinking that do not serve us! Foreverconscious.com has a wonderful ritual. But you can do your own – every day! For every single day we are given the chance to renew, just by waking up and saying YES! To a lovely new experience! I had to do it all in the last few days. LET IT GO!

napwFor I wasn’t kidding when I said I was hiding my honor. I even spoke about it as the Keynote Speaker for the NAPW event at the Los Angeles Theatre Center on Wednesday night. Why was I hiding? Because, as since I was a little girl, I did not think I was deserving. I was self-conscious about it. I was wanting to just get to the next place and not be in the present. Y’all, I don’t need to remind you that today is a GIFT that is why it is called the PRESENT! Hmm? Even moi, Goddess of Awareness needs to get AWARE!!

We are all BRIGHT STARS! We have a DUTY TO SHINE ! And the SUN – HELLO! BRIGHT STAR! IT SHINES THROUGHOUT THE DAY starting first thing in the morning! And like the famous quote from Marianne Williamson, its our light we are most afraid of, not our darkness. Why? Even I have to ask this. I accepted the honor from NAPW with an open heart and immense gratitude that night. I saw in that moment how blessed I truly am to have had that moment to share my experience, strength and hope for being a woman owning a business for since 2008. I know the ups and downs. I have been with the NAPW Los Angeles Local Chapter since 2008 as well. I know I need to connect to other bright stars and I have through them. They are ALL amazing women in many different fields of life practice.

mvdivarulescoverBut unbeknownst to me, I was preparing for the Black Moon rising for a few weeks. I started by reading Michelle Visage’s outstanding THE DIVA RULES: Ditch the Drama, Find Your Strength and Sparkle Your Way to the Top. Michelle is a powerhouse of brilliance. I work with her on (Emmy-winning! Yay Ru!) RuPaul’s Drag Race She serves sparkle brilliance each and every episode. She serves it when we all kiki (chit chat!) in her dressing room and when she – Goddess bless her – guided me towards one of the most precious gifts of my life! This is the perfect book to read for the New Moon!

And… if you are going to the pictures today – the next best way to celebrate this New Moon is to see Barnet Bain‘s wonderful Milton’s Secret! Eduardo and I were blessed to be at the Los Angeles Premiere on Tuesday night. And PS! Hello!  Not only did I get to hug my darling friend Barnet with whom I worked on the Academy Award-winning What Dreams May Come with the divine Robin Williams. He is an inspirational thought leader, author, producer and director. We crossed paths for the first time in December 1996 for a REASON. He hired me to be his assistant on the production because I was a student of New Thought Consciousness. You never know what will make someone spark to hire you! …And… also at the premiere – I also got to meet one of all-time favorite stars, Lisa Garr of The Aware Show! See! See how brilliant this week is! OMG! I am jumping for joy just realizing it myself!

Are you seeing the wonderful connections happening? STARS ARE EVERYWHERE and WE ARE EVERYWHERE! Milton’s Secret is a story of moving from chaos to stillness, from unconsciousness to consciousness from war to peace  – sometimes as simply by taking a breath. Letting Go. You can do this too. Stars send their energy to Earth to light the way. Each one of us is a beacon of light. In fact, we may be the only beacon someone sees that day, so shine brighter than ever!! So DREAM BIGGER on this amazing NEW MOON!  Write, dance, MANIFEST! Have a MANIFEST EXTRAVAGANZAA and get ready for what’s to come, because powerful stars are POWERFUL, POWERFUL! And you will have FUN most of all! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!! dreambigger

 

 

 

What Dreams May Come

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME ~ Indeed, from whence I last wrote – the Summer Solstice on 21 June, so much has passed and so many people dear to me, that I found it not possible to put into words all that I have experienced.

I have also been working in production day and night since start of July, that my hours are consumed, and my attention, not on writing. So it has been. This morning, I return, hoping all that is collected and brought here, makes some sense.

Sadness becomes us as we face the passing of those close to our hearts and souls. Beautiful Goddess June E. Hudson, gifted artist Richard McKenzie, the one-year anniversary of brilliant Robin Williams’ going on his next great adventure… My amazing Goddess Aunt Molly Gorman who passed away ten years ago today…

Hard to believe any of them are not here on Earth any longer.

People. All brilliant lights. Parents to us all. Death is the next transition that will happen to all of us. It is inevitable. It is certain. It is something to be as celebrated as a birth. Sometimes we organize it for ourselves ~ sometimes it takes us by surprise. Sometimes we experience a long illness for which the end finally comes. However it does, we salute those on their next journey as they step onto the boat to cross over. What awaits them, only those making the crossing get to experience ~ so many have made it and no one has come back saying it isn’t pleasant, so we can believe it must be lovely ~ I like to think so anyway!

I believe in the afterlife whole-heartedly. I was lucky to see it brought to this life when I worked on What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams. Now THAT was an awesome journey! Life, death, art, color, imagination, recreation, envisioning ~ manifesting to the SUPREME. BELIEVE it is FABULOUS and it IS! KNOW that you have the power to make it what you want it to be, and it IS! Share in your VISION and it IS! ACT AS IF and it IS!

I am indeed, so BEYOND BLESSED to have shared in the energy of so many awesome people over the years. To think how fortunate I was to have shared in the energy of Robin while we made What Dreams May Come! Everyone who worked on the picture will tell you – it radically changed each of our lives in some capacity. Fitting that he was the STAR, for Robin is singular among us, a shining beacon who has always lived on another plane, his sparkling blue eyes radiating brilliance, flying across a stratosphere all his own…

We all have dreams we watch float by. Sometimes we reach out, grab it and ride them like a whale or a dolphin as we dip and dive into the waters of creation. We hold on for dear life as they shoot up into the skies to sprinkle the world with manifestation. Or…if we don’t grab on, we watch them float by and we might wave… Maybe the next, maybe the next! Maybe I won’t be afraid! Maybe…I’LL DO IT!
What I know today is those who have gone on during this summertime, each of them left true works of art. Whether it was their amazing, incredibly creative children and grandchildren, their own works of physical art, or their funny sayings we recall, their personalities, if not always inviting, inspired laughter, hilarious moments we recall. My grandmother, Cicely O’Donovan, said so many incredible bon mots, to recount them would take another entry. In fact, I shall devote one to her another time. She lived in the clouds so often, her world was all her own. And… it is a reminder to each one of us ~ our world is our own…but in living day-to-day, we do share it with others. Maybe for the good, perhaps not for some, but always it is THIS LIFE NOW.

So I ask this now… What dreams may come? What of YOUR DREAMS may come? What of OUR DREAMS do we manifest while we have this time on Earth? What are we doing to really DREAM? We dream to create, to take us somewhere new… or old. To create a business, a place to live, a voyage to take…

I daydream of Paris often. I daydream of a hike I took with our extended family in Lake Tahoe in the summertime – through an expansive field filled with flowers. It was like commercial for soap or some such. But it affected me so at the time that sometimes I go back there in my mind to figure out why. I daydream of Los Angeles when it was quiet. I daydream of a house one day I will live in with my own family. I dream to create on some level ~ To take me on a new journey. I dream to get stronger, to be at peace and to be not afraid.

So this morning, I send blessings and THANK YOUs and salutations to all who have made the journey before me – the crossing from the mundane to the EXTRAORDINARY. Who are the BRAVE ADVENTURERS.

Fly, be free! You are AWESOME and forever, are BLESSED BE!!
