Everyday Magic: Literal or Metaphorical?

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic is where the spiritual and physical intersect.

Literal or metaphorical? From the comments:

“I think I sometimes take these wonderful spiritual metaphors and relate them right back into the material world, even though they may not be intended as that.

But I actually did spend hours yesterday taking lots of old clothes out of closets, and marked it for Goodwill.” – sophie

I mean the metaphors both ways. Multi-layered reality. Both physical cleaning and energetic cleaning are brands of the same type of energy–release. So working on one enhances and smooths the way for the other. As above, so below. This is an everyday expression of the Law of Attraction.

Do you see the energetic/physical connections?


  1. @Sophie…. “I’m totally feeling the elevation of these mundane tasks into something higher.”

    That’s exactly it, in a nutshell.
    Lovely posting, Sophie. Thank you.

  2. I was furiously chasing so many dust bunnies the past few days that I didn’t even notice that I had been made famous!!! I usually zoom to the tarot like a cup of coffee if I’m in a hurry.

    But my mind still kept coming back the the intuitive insights from wonderful Dixie… Ya, the spiritual implications of opening each box in my closets and attacking them are causing me to realize that I can do this now because I’m strong enough to face it, and there is a time for everything to be done, in sequence. Family obligations and crises had taken precedence for years.

    Each box contains not things, but memories. I cried over the baby clothes, and I let them go. With blessings to the mom that may need them, as she looks at her little sweetie and wonders how she’s going to do it all.

    Or projects that I started, and never finished, but are moot now. I have to let it go…

    I’m totally feeling the elevation of these mundane tasks into something higher.

    • Yeah, well, this ain’t *that* famous, Sophie. Har! But glad you don’t mind either way. And what a nice story. I’ll bet you feel so much lighter now!

  3. Absolutely, Dixie – I agree.

    And the thing is….I KNOW this stuff. Change the mass, change the energy. And vice versa.

    But because I was in the middle of it, I couldn’t see it. I’m glad you pointed it out!

  4. Oooh…..I didn’t think about this, Dixie. But yes, yes, yes!! A month ago, I cleaned out my storage unit and brought everything home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html, sorted through it, pitched stuff, gave away stuff, and organized my bookstore in shelving. Cleaned up my altar, washed my stones. Went through MORE boxes, pitched MORE stuff.
    Then, what happens??
    I bring up all this crap energy from my childhood, and end up in the ER because I can’t breathe. (I’m doing much better – thanks, everyone!)
    WOW. Great stuff to think on.
    Now I’m going to think about how I can shift things here abundance-wise so it comes pouring in!!
    (Then again, maybe I’ve already done it!)

    • I think it’s extremely common for people get sick or experience physical symptoms when they are working with or releasing emotional toxins. Science knows there is a mind-body connection but most people act like you’re nuts for suggesting the two are connected in real life. Hogwash.

      Maybe also an argument for being patient with yourself in the process of releasing. It’s awfully hard on our bodies!

  5. Oh I do. Ever notice how when you clean a room or clear off your desk, etc. that it all feels *lighter* ? I love that feeling

    • Yep, lighter indeed! I got the same feeling from losing weight, too, but not as immediate. I know that sounds like a joke, but it’s not. My energy lightened along with my size.

Shine Thy Light!
