Magic Moments – True Medicine

By Matilda Bathurst and Judy Joy. 

Do you ever get that feeling when you wake up that you have to work through some fogginess to come to the sense of opportunity that each day has? Why is that? Why do we not wake feeling the lightness and joy we did when we were young and that we know we naturally are?

In our daily lives how often do we allow ourselves to see and feel the opportunities presented to realise the joy that sparkles in often unexpected places and situations?

Whilst shopping today there was a little girl in a shopping mall wearing sandals with a built-in squeaker and with every step she took she visibly delighted in these shoes and the noise they made. The ripple effect of her joy was properly palpable in all who saw and heard her. People stopped and literally lit up as she passed them by and conversations started up between strangers. It was an instance of twinkle and joy… a moment that touched many. And we have no idea how far this spreads beyond this shopping mall to conversations and interactions throughout all the lives of the people who witnessed this.

“To return to the essence of your whole body, as all children naturally are, and not just the governance from your mind, is in itself an enrichment that is well worth taking, whatever steps are required to do so.”

Serge Benhayon An Open Letter to Humanity, p 550

So, what if, in accepting the impact we have in our every move, we take up the joyful responsibility of living with a quality, care and appreciation that builds and reflects these attributes back to others and into the foundations of our communities, which then have their own ongoing ripple effect?

When lived from the essence of who we are, life can be simple and joyful. If we suspend disbelief, self-doubt, complication and whatever else we use to make life a struggle and allow ourselves to quietly but surely build a relationship with appreciation, could this be the silent world changer that we are all privately yearning for? In that moment in the shopping mall, that particular community were offered the blessing of no boundaries, no attachment, no expectations LOVE… pure and simple, always on offer and waiting to be noticed, embraced and enjoyed.

With our eyes and hearts open, willingly accepting and embracing all the possibilities and sparkles that rain down in our days, could we start to value and appreciate the quality of these magic moments for the life-changing medicine they offer?

 “Forget ‘happy’, there is no joy greater than the one that lives inside you. Let it out and you will feel the immutable truth of these words.”

Serge Benhayon An Open Letter to Humanity, p 596

  1. A magical reading so full of the joy that is inside felt in the moments all around us if we choose to listen and be aware. Making life simple playful and full of joy and childlike bringing the balance much needed in life with all that is going on and a true quality of livingness.

  2. I so agree that are so many “possibilities and sparkles that rain down in our days,” but it seems that many people are in too much of a hurry to notice them and so miss out on the magic. I have always appreciated these magic moments but I know that I too would have missed out on many more as I hurried through my life. But what I have discovered is that the more I appreciate these moments, the more the magic presents itself, and that to me is ‘true medicine’.

  3. When we are aware of these magic moments of joy, we can really feel the healing benefits in the body. It releases tension and stress that we may have carried for a long time and not realised was there until it is gone.

  4. Being willing to be open to what is next allows joy to enter our lives and very often we can sense it coming from unexpected places and situations and when this happens indeed there is much to pause, reflect and appreciate as the ripples of joy go out into the universe.

  5. Matilda and Judy – I love this; ‘The ripple effect of her joy was properly palpable in all who saw and heard her.’ What strikes me is that the little girl was simply being herself, she was not trying to be something or to make people smile, she simply went about her day in the most innocent and natural way, this shows me how we can inspire others by simply being ourselves.

    1. And that is the magic Rebecca – that the girl was ‘simply being herself’. But if she had been seeking recognition for having these very expressive sandals the magic would have been missing. A great lesson in simply being who we are and living the joy that is available to us in every moment, it is then that the magic naturally flows.

  6. Loved it! The example of the girl walking with the special sneakers is great: we could all walk connected with our essence, out inner beauty and letting it out, and people will notice. This is a possibility and a responsibility.

  7. Most of us have experienced a time as children when the joy and excitement of life was spilling out of us – or at least we have seen it in children if we cannot recall feeling like that as young ones ourselves. Small children often delight in seeing us when we walk into the room and they spot us, even if we have only left briefly to go the toilet – this level of appreciation and joy is contagious and it takes a lot of effort to not notice this and to smile and join in the fun.

  8. When we have forgotten how to live with joy and spunk, it can take a bit of effort to revive this – kind of like getting a bit rusty and needing to clear that rust away so we can shine again. Very often I can feel very weighed down by things that happen in life, but when we appreciate and delight in the littlest of things, it really does change our outlook on things and we are far better at dealing with the challenges that suddenly do not appear to be so challenging anymore.

  9. Confronting opening question: and to be honest, yes I do wake most of the days with some sort of fogginess through which I have to work myself through. Which I can fortunately, thanks to the many tools I have been given by Universal Medicine. But I did a have look deeper in waking up like that: lack of purpose. Embodied purpose that is, because I know what my purpose. But true purpose should be embodied.

  10. ‘In our daily lives how often do we allow ourselves to see and feel the opportunities presented to realise the joy that sparkles in often unexpected places and situations?’ A beautiful reminder that at all times there are reflections around us showing us who we are and how to return to this essence.

  11. I love being with younger children because they are so in the moment and you can see they are in their body. Such a great reminder and reflection of how far we have gone from our natural state of being.

    1. Spot on Natalie – children are quick to remind us of how fun life can be – and if we take this as inspiration then it is something we know we can return to at any time.

  12. Imagine that we can all be imprinting the earth with joy just like this child when we are living the truth of who we are in essence.

  13. I love the quote at the end, ‘“Forget ‘happy’, there is no joy greater than the one that lives inside you. Let it out and you will feel the immutable truth of these words.” Yes, I know this joy..it lights up every cell in the body.

  14. Forget ‘happy’ that is such a major statement in itself, whole industries are built on being happy. All the while Joy is within, waiting to be ignited. We sure have made a great effort to avoid our birthright of love. Thank God for children who remind us effortlessly of full expression joy being one of them.

  15. There is magic in a moment in a pause to be aware of the quality of warmth and spaciousness expanding the lungs when a gentle breath is inhaled…

  16. “To return to the essence of your whole body, as all children naturally are, and not just the governance from your mind, is in itself an enrichment that is well worth taking, whatever steps are required to do so.” I spent a large proportion of my life questioning why I no longer felt the joy and ease with life as I did as a child, there is such a natural lightness and playfulness when we observe children in their interactions and as I start making changes to my life, it is becoming normal to feel joyful and light much of the time.
