When magical things happen in our lives, it is easy to think it is coming from outside of ourselves. But really, magic is who we are. We have just forgotten about it, covered it up, and ignored it. There are probably a lucky few out there who grew up knowing about this magic and learned about it from a young age. For the rest of us, we discover it as we reclaim our intuition and psychic abilities and/or dust off our physical bodies (cleanse) and/or refine our energy fields (or maybe none of the above) but we do find it. There are probably an infinite number of ways we find this essence again, but if we are destined to find it, we will. Magic and nature are inseparable; in nature you find magic. In yourself you will find magic. In fact, many adults attracted to magical things were simply magical children who temporarily lost touch with the magic.
For me it seems like the essence of magic has trickled in over the years. There were times I forgot about it, then times I felt strongly connected to it again. Overall though, it seems to gather strength as the years go on, kinda like a magic muscle getting stronger as it is used more. Then it becomes more of a flow than a trickle. As this essence graces your life, you may find you attract different things and/or change your surroundings to match the new energy. I found myself attracted to glittery and sparkly things of all sorts, flowery and nature related art (sometimes vintage and Victorian style), colors I had never liked before and more crystals seemed to want me to take them home. The key is to find what looks and feels magical to you. If you can surround yourself little by little with things and colors that represent magic to you, it is like a mirror reflecting more magic back to you. (Read more below)
