Where do I find Peace?

Where to find PeaceThis week my wonderful Sweetheart was involved in a bicycle accident.  Thanks to his helmet (we NEVER ride without them) he avoided a hospital stay (or worse).  The doctor told him he was lucky.  The x-rays say his pelvis is not broken.  I am beyond grateful. We are thankful for friends and family that are quick to offer help, send messages of love and prayers, and are willing to lend crutches (he can’t yet walk without them.) We are certain that he will make a full recovery.  And I am reminded at just how miraculous our bodies are, how fragile life can be, how powerful love is.

My son has raced a bicycle for many years, so I am fully experienced with bike crashes, near misses, road rash, ripped jerseys, and cracked helmets.  And each time a crash occurs, whether the incident involves my son, my Sweetheart, or another fellow cyclist the emotions all show up en masse…fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, excitement, gratitude, relief, wonder…love…and then, peace.  Finally peace.

Somehow, peace arrives.  This week I began to think about that…how do we come to the place of peace? Where do we find it? And how can we facilitate finding peace in times of confusion, emotional turmoil, unrest, fear?

Chances are you didn’t have a bike wreck in your family this week, and hopefully not any other type of wreck.  And yet there are so many opportunities to feel a lack of peace.  From general bad news to a difficult conversation  to an unwanted medical diagnosis…the list goes on and on.  Life happens, and sometimes it just feels crappy and downright unpeaceful.

Sometimes it’s a struggle.  Sometimes our afternoon was just going along swimmingly and we get blindsided by a big dog running in front of our bike while we are going 23 mph.

So when does peace come, and where do we find it?

Peace comes when we realize that although all hell might be breaking loose around us, peace comes from within us.

Peace comes from that inner knowing that somehow “everything will be okay”, from knowing that the Universe is always supporting us,  from understanding that every experience I have is for my highest good.  And we CAN have a hand in facilitating it, here are 10 tips to help:

1. Breathe deep..it sounds simple, but anxiety and fear are characterized by holding our breath and shallow breathing.  Take a few deep breaths consciously.

2.  Develop a meditative practice.  When meditation becomes a habit, it is much easier to tap into that place of peace quickly when something difficult occurs.

3.  Learn to express what it is you are feeling.  I felt anger at the dog that ran in front of my Sweetheart’s bike.  I felt angry at the dog’s owner who would let him run loose.  I did not allow myself  to have an inappropriate display of anger,  I just expressed it. I said, “I feel angry about that dog running loose in the street.”  Acknowledge what you are feeling.  Once you can feel it fully and acknowledge that feeling’s presence it will begin to fade.

4. Recognize that whatever you are experiencing is exactly what you need to grow, even if you don’t understand it right now.

5. Choose to believe that The Universe (God/Goddess, Source, the Light, or however you relate to a higher power) is ALWAYS supporting you.

6. Find something in the situation to be grateful for, and express it.  “I am so grateful that you were wearing a helmet.”

7. Remember that you have been through tough times before and you are ok.  Right now, if you are reading this, you are ok.  Everything is going to be alright. 🙂

8. Pray, meditate, sit in stillness, listen to gentle music, take a bubble bath…whatever healthy outward action you can take that you associate with peace – do it.  And while you are at it, put it on your calendar and make it a habit.

9. Reach out to someone for support.   Reach out to friends and family that have a positive outlook.  Surround yourself with people who radiate peace, joy and positivity.   Get (and give) a hug.

10. Learn to bring yourself into the present moment.  Worry, fear, anxiety are all attached to the past or the future.  When we can learn to bring our self into present moment awareness we will readily find peace within.

And, in my experience, peace is all wrapped up with Love.  The love we have for others, the love we have for our self.  And love is a verb, not just a concept.  Show yourself some love, let someone know how much you care about them.  Peace will follow.

You can find peace, it is there within you.  I wish you a peaceful summer!

Love & Magic,

Cindie

How to Make a Difficult Decision

lanterns in snow“Take the lighted path, no matter how dimly lit.” ~Simran Singh

Making a tough decision. That proverbial fork in the road. I know it would be easier to shake that magic 8-ball, but we all know that making certain decisions isn’t always that easy. I want to give you some tips, pointers, encouragement and support because you may be right smack in the midst of tough decision time and I know how important it is to find clarity and feel confident about your decision.

Ten Things to Consider when Making a Difficult Decision

1. You don’t have to see the entire path yet…just the part where the fork in the road is. Like driving your car at night, you generally can’t see much further than your headlights, and somehow that is enough. Bring yourself into the present moment, and make the decision here and now. No one knows the future, and all of your power is in the present moment. What does it feel like right now to decide one way or the other? What do you feel when you consider each possible decision. Your feelings are a miracle! Pay attention to them.

2. Instead of telling yourself that you “should” do this (or that), ask yourself what you want to do. There are no shoulds.

3. All possible actions have only one of two driving forces…Fear or Love. What is driving your decision? Fear based decisions are generally not the best choices. Choose love. ♥

4. Check your boundaries…if you are tolerating something chances are your boundaries are weak in this area. What choice would you make if your boundaries were stronger?

5. Get some rest. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture. Generally speaking tortured individuals make choices they might regret later. Make your decision after a good night of rest. If possible, take this a step further with a short meditation prior to your decision making moment.

6. REMEMBER: There are no mistakes. What would you choose if you truly believed that you couldn’t make a wrong choice?

7. When you step back and observe (rather than judging), what do you know for sure about the situation?

8. Success often depends on taking imperfect action. Allow yourself to make a less than “perfect” decision. Perfectionism is not about wanting things to be perfect, it is about wanting to feel safe.

9. Chances are if you are trying to make a tough decision there may be a lot of people giving you advice. What advice would you give if someone you loved dearly was making this decision? I once coached a woman who was in an abusive relationship and trying to decide whether to stay or go. I asked her what advice she would give her daughter if her daughter was being abused. Her answers were very different from what she had previously come up with for herself.

10. Let others know what you want, and whatever it is that you want, put it out there for someone else too. If you want love, give love. If you want kindness, be kind. If you need space, allow others to have space. What is it that you really want in this decision? Find an opportunity to give that same thing to someone else, even in a small way.

My wish is that these ideas will help shed some light on your path, and that you will always choose the lighted path, no matter how dim. 🙂

Love & Magic,

Cindie

The Love vs. Fear Factor

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” John Lennon

How do we know which force is driving us? Determining the force behind a belief, a choice, an action, can be complicated because decisions based upon fear can often be rationalized as a logical choice, and often we decide the logical choice is obviously the right one, but love isn’t always logical.

Our thoughts are powerful. Buddha said, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.”

The ability to be aware, indeed the habit of mindfulness, is a key here. What we think, we become. Our body tells us much about what we are becoming, if we will listen. When we pay attention to our body, we notice that when we are fearful, our breathing is shallow, our muscles tighten, we become constricted, we literally start to close up. When we love, we open up, we relax, we let go, we shine.

To open our bodies and minds to a place of love, and to relax without fear, we can use the powerful tool of meditation.

As our body and mind quiet and relax, we become less constricted, we can let go of fearfulness, we can embrace the power of love.

Meditative practice allows us to gain clarity, become more intuitive, reduce our stress levels, become healthier, and as we practice mindfulness, we develop an awareness of what our body is feeling and that is a huge key to the fear vs. love factor.

I want to encourage you to learn to meditate, and if you already know how, I want to encourage you to begin your practice anew with the intention to release any fearfulness hiding within you and to open up to love, more and more. This is an amazing and powerful action you can take starting now, to bring more Love & Magic into your life.

And although many of the images I see depicting meditation show a person doing yoga on a gorgeous beach, you don’t need to practice yoga to meditate (although you may love it once you try it) and you don’t need a beach. Just find a quiet place where you can be undisturbed, sitting or lying down in a relaxed position for a while (I’ve read studies that say you need 7 minutes at minimum, and a recent poll I read said that most people really prefer 20 minutes – long enough to be very effective, short enough to fit into a busy schedule).

You can sit in stillness and quiet, focusing on your breath or sounds in nature (birds!), or listen to a guided meditation (often easier at first because you can focus on the spoken words that are ‘guiding’ you and your mind will wander less.) It is a very simple, powerful practice that anyone can immediately derive benefit from.

To support you in beginning (or continuing!) a meditative practice I’ve created a 20-minute guided meditation called Meditation for Attracting Love.

Up until now it has only been available as part of my 7-Figure Relationship Package, but I’ve gotten so much feedback about it that I wanted to offer this beautiful 20-minute guided meditation to you today, for just $8!

Whether you use this guided meditation or just sit in stillness, I encourage you to give yourself this gift and begin becoming mindful and aware of what you feel in your body. Your feelings are a miracle, and your body speaks the truth to you. You are an amazing being, with the capacity to be filled with love, and create a magical life!

Love & Magic,

Cindie

The Hidden Meanings in Your Relationships

blackmirror

“Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” -Deepak Chopra

As I placed the above quote into my document this morning, I glanced over at a notebook lying on my desk…on the page open I had written another quote:

“Everything in this world has a hidden meaning…People, animal, trees, stars are all heiroglyphics…We think they are really only people, animals, trees, stars. It is only years later…that some of us understand.” Nikos Kazantzakis

Indeed every relationship we have is providing something that we absolutely need for our growth, our evolution. In fact, it is my belief that our entire world is a mirror for us if we are willing to see it, to look into it to find the hidden meaning. I often refer to this concept as “The Magic Mirror”. Our relationships, especially our intimate and close relationships can show us a reflection like nothing else can.

Those hidden meanings in our every day lives are there plain as day once we understand the concept of The Magic Mirror.  And what do we use a mirror for? We use it to check ourselves and fix what needs fixing. I look into a mirror to see if my hair looks ok, if my makeup is the way I like it, if my clothes look right, if I have food in my teeth…and then, once I see what needs fixing, I fix it. I fix myself, not the mirror.

A famous quote from Mahatma Gandhi encourages us to “Be the change we wish to see in the world.” This can be even easier if we allow the world, and our relationships, to be the Magic Mirror for us – to show us how we are showing up, and what we can change to be an even better version of our self.

It’s not always pleasant.  Sort of like those magnifying mirrors…personally I’m not always so excited about seeing my flaws 10x magnified.  But you have to admit, it makes them much easier to fix. 🙂

When you take a look at your world, at  the relationships you have, what do you see? And what does it show you about yourself?

Love & Magic,

Cindie

Growing Pains

sproutThis morning I was looking through an old journal, and began reading a few entries that catalogued a particularly rough time in my life.

A time when I was working on mending a broken heart, overwhelmed with a big life transition, and was struggling financially to make ends meet.

Right smack in the middle of one of the pages I had jotted down the following quote:

Difficulties and obstacles will continue to come until we absorb their wisdom and gather from them the essentials of further growth.

The inexorable requirements of growth demand that we exert the greatest degree of attraction for what is perfectly in accord with us.

Our highest happiness will be best attained through our understanding of and conscious co-operation with natural laws.  Charles Haanel

Underneath the quote I had written: “Everywhere I look the word GROWTH hits me square.”

Ah, a growth spurt, complete with growing pains.

We are all growing, some of us consciously, some of us quickly, some of us by default.  But we either grow or die, certainly true.

Pema Chodron said that “nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know…”

Those things that we struggle with are the very things we need to grow into what we will become next.  The Universe gives us precisely what we need.  That inexorable thing we often resist is helping us attain our highest best, our highest happiness…and it can be painful.

Sometimes it looks like not enough; not enough time, not enough money, not enough love.  And yet…it is EXACTLY enough because it is the very thing we NEED right NOW for our perfection, for our evolution.

We all want more of something…as well we should.  That is nature…always desiring to expand, to grow, to BE MORE, DO MORE, HAVE MORE… and first we must become more.  And that happens when we allow our current circumstance to teach us, to help us, to guide us.

That thing you’ve been struggling with?  It is your next phase of personal growth.  It is your teacher, your friend, your guide.  And it is exactly what you need to move forward on your journey of becoming the best and brightest and happiest YOU.

There is enough time, there is enough money, there is enough love.

Love & Magic,

Cindie

How to Stop Feeling Guilty

How to Stop Feeling Guilty

This week I was interviewed on a telesummit that dealt with the pain of divorce.

At the end of the call, I answered a few questions and later recognized a common theme in the questions was  “I feel so guilty.”

Guilt, if it really is guilt, is a useful emotion. It has exactly ONE use: to show us what we value.

One of the callers said she was feeling guilty about her divorce and wanted to make sure that she had made the right choice for her children.

When a parent feels guilt about how a choice they’ve made might affect their children, it is usually because they have a strong value around being a good parent…which could show up as a desire to create the right environment for them, the desire to have happy children, or the desire to be a strong person who can provide a sense of safety, or support, or, or, or…the list goes on and on depending on that person’s core values, and what “being a good parent” means to them.

And when we can suss out our values by connecting WHY we feel guilt in any given situation, we can move forward with determining how we can still fulfill that value even in the midst of whatever we are going through.

If you were the parent in the imagined scenario above, how could you show up as a “good parent” even in the midst of divorce?  How could you help your children have an experience of happiness – even in the midst of divorce?  What could you do to show your sense of strength, to provide a safe space, etc?

There is surely a myriad of ways to fulfill your core values even in the midst of [fill in the blank]…because your core values are attached to WHO you are, and you are here to BE that person.

But, and here is where the confusion comes in, sometimes when I hear the word “guilt“, I intuitively get a strong sense that the underlying feeling is really “shame“.  And unlike guilt, shame is not very useful at all.

Guilt is when we feel bad about something we did.

Shame is when we feel bad about who we are.

Read that again!

Sometimes when I hear, “I feel so bad about choosing divorce because I’m not sure I’m doing the right thing for my children” (guilt), the unspoken piece is “I feel bad because my marriage failed and that must mean I’m not a good enough wife, mother, person.” (shame)

Nothing could be further from the truth. You are good enough, and you are enough, period. The very fact that you feel guilty is evidence that you have a strong value connected to something that if highlighted you could take pride in (in this example…being a good parent.)

You do not have to feel ashamed. Everything you have experienced up until this moment has been part of your unique journey, and yes, we experience pain in life.

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Guilt can cause us pain, until we are willing to recognize that it is connected to a value we have, then we can course correct and move forward by finding ways to fulfill that value. It can be a powerful tool of self-discovery.

Shame, on the other hand, causes suffering because it is directly connected, ALWAYS, to the thought that we are not good enough. Suffering is optional. You are good enough. Choose to believe it.

And if you haven’t seen Brene Brown’s TED talks on Vulnerability and Shame, please do…they are fabulous.

Namaste (or How to Change Your Life Today in 1 Easy Step)

Namaste

Do you know the definition of the word Namaste?

The word is a common greeting in India and Nepal and originates from Hindu and Buddhist philosophy and culture. If you’ve ever taken a yoga class I’m sure you’ve heard this word. It literally means “I bow to you”, and is often said accompanied by a small bow with hands pressed together.

I’ve heard many longer more verbose definitions of the word mainly because it holds so much meaning that the literal definition just doesn’t express it fully.

My favorite definition is “The Divine within me, recognizes and honors the Divine within you.”

Can you imagine how our life experience would change if everyone held this idea (just as a silent thought) as they met people on their way, as they interacted with friends and loved ones, as they related to family members?

Years ago when I was going through my divorce, I had many opportunities to be angry, to be resentful, to be vengeful. I didn’t like feeling any of those things. There were many times when it would have been very easy for me to believe I was getting screwed being victimized, and one belief  kept me from taking up residence in Victimland.

That one belief is this: “Everyone is doing the best they can.” (Even him, even me… everyone.)

This is a belief that I choose, and it will change your life when you choose it too.

“Everyone is doing the best they can at any given time.”

People struggle. People make choices that result in pain for themselves and others…and they’re doing the best they can at that moment.

How would it change your perception of someone if you realized that they really truly are doing the best they can?

How would it change the way you feel about yourself if you recognized that you, too, are doing the best you can?

An exercise that I just presented to a group I’m coaching is to look into your own eyes in the mirror each morning as you get your self ready for your day, and say to yourself “I am beneath no one, I am above no one. Namaste.”

When you meet someone, even incidentally, in the course of your day, look into their eyes and silently greet them with “Namaste”. The Divine within me recognizes and honors the Divine within you.

How could that change the way you interact with others?

How would the world be different if we developed the habit of recognizing that we are above no one, we are beneath no one, that each of us carries a spark of divinity within us, and we are all doing the best we can?

Today, from me to you: “Namaste.”

Love & Magic,

Cindie

What Defines You?

winklercactus

This week I was talking to one of my clients who began sharing an “aha moment” that she had just experienced.

My client had recently experienced a situation that was a bit of a struggle, followed by a victory over the situation, and then she received a nice email from a close friend telling her how much she admired her ability to stay strong and carry herself in such a beautiful way at such a time.

Now, most of us have been in stressful situations, places that required us to “keep the faith”, “keep our chin up”, and “keep smiling” (for some of us that also means keep worrying, keep praying, affirming, hoping, and maybe gritting our teeth a bit).  And surely (hopefully!) most of us have enjoyed coming out on the other side of the situation victorious!  Maybe not so many of us have received a note telling us that we were admired for our courage, bravery, and tenacity (or whatever other wonderful quality helped us through), but I’m sure we would all agree that being noticed and complimented for how we handled ourselves and our situation would be an enjoyable experience.  My client would agree….and yet, she also had a bit of an epiphany from this lovely email.

She told me that to her, it seemed suddenly obvious that this email showed her not only how she was viewed by others, but that maybe the ability to continually overcome stressful situations was “her story”…maybe this was how she was continually describing herself.

Hearing this reminded me of a woman I once spoke to who was considering hiring me as a coach.  During the first 15 minutes of our conversation she referred to herself as “a survivor” FIVE times.

First, I commented to her that it was wonderful and amazing that she had survived the things she had described.  Because truly, this woman had overcome some extremely challenging situations.  And then I pointed out to her that she had referred to herself as a survivor FIVE different times in 15 minutes.  I commented that it seemed to me that she was making sure the Universe would have to hand her a never ending stream of situations to survive, she related so strongly with that identity.  “I am a survivor”,  it came out of her mouth so effortlessly.  The continual crisis in her life and her ability to survive them all had become her identity.

My client this week told me that when she realized she was being defined by her ability to overcome stressful situations she made a decision to change her story.   I applaud that whole heartedly.

We all have life challenges we can be proud that we have overcome.  I hear stories everyday about people surviving accidents, diseases, bankruptcy, divorce, loss of income, loss of loved ones, and all manner of devastating circumstances, and I applaud the sheer tenacity of the human spirit in someone that can walk through a hard place to come out on the other side.   And yet, we don’t have to let these hard places define us.

Whatever “story” we are telling about ourselves will continually play itself out in our experience.  Whatever hard places we’ve walked through, we have surely collected treasure there, and that treasure that we’ve found there can certainly be a beautiful part of what makes us unique.

Some of the things that make me unique are my strong intuition and ability to resolve conflicts gently and communicate masterfully.  I use these gifts every day, in my professional life as a coach as well as in my personal life. These things are a part of who I am, I can’t not use them.  I acquired these skills and gifts while in a very hard place, and yet I allow these qualities of masterful communication and intuition be a big part of who I am, without having to revisit the hard place over and over as part of my story.

Whatever hard place you’ve been through, recognize that in that place you have most likely acquired something beautiful and valuable.  Let that beautiful treasure shine as part of who you are, instead of letting the struggle be what defines you.

Love & Magic,

What I needed to hear…

lunareclipse

I’ve just read an article that says tonight, April 25th, 2013, the Universe will be presenting a “Pink Full Moon Lunar Eclipse”.

Now, I have to admit I’d never heard of a pink moon, and I sort of got excited about it since I love the color pink and I’m very fond of the moon and what could be better than a pink full moon eclipse? 🙂

The astrologers say that lunar eclipses often cause pressure, strong emotions, and monumental endings and beginnings. Whether or not that is your experience, reading about it today brought up some memories of a specific ending and beginning in my life. Remembering this difficult time in my life brings me to the point I want to drive home for you today.

Years ago when I was waiting for my divorce to be finalized, I experienced a real “dark night of the soul” type of week (or maybe a month, or two). Things just kept dragging on and on and I felt like everything was totally out of my control. I just wanted the divorce to be final, the long frustrating process to be OVER. Yet, one circumstance after another kept delaying it.

Every time I felt like I was a little stronger and a little more grounded, like I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, something else would happen to dim that light and make the tunnel seem like it would stretch on forever.

One evening in particular I remember feeling confused, angry, worried, sad and frustrated. I hate to say it, but I felt hopeless.

And then I had a conversation with my coach, a conversation I will always remember.

After pouring my heart out to her she asked me a very simple question. She said, “Cindie, what could I say to you right now that would make things better?”

Silence.

And then I finally answered, “I guess I just need someone to tell me that everything is going to be alright.”

And then, she said, “Cindie, everything is going to be alright.”

Doesn’t that sound amazingly simple? Maybe even trite.

And yet it was the most powerful thing she could have said to me that evening. Because it was exactly what I needed to hear. And you know what? It was true.

Everything really did turn out alright. And looking back over my entire life I can see that everything ALWAYS turns out alright.

And that’s the one point I want to drive home to you, for you, today. Whatever you are going through right now, whatever loss, whatever struggle, whatever confusion, whatever ending or new beginning…everything is going to be alright.

Hang in there, take a deep breath, get some rest, do something special and kind for yourself, and choose to believe this one fact.

Because it’s true. You are loved.

And everything really is going to be alright.

Love and Magic,

Cindie

Just Say No

SayNo

Just Say “No”.

Okay, well maybe it isn’t as simple as that. 🙂

I do want you to say “Yes“.  And, “No”.

First and foremost I want you to say “Yes”, to the Universe.

Say YES to Love, to Magic, to Beauty, to Comfort, Health, Abundance, Joy, Peace, Compassion, Balance, Touch, Hugs, Laughter, and any other thing that edifies you, heals you, shores you up when you’re feeling lost, lifts you up when you’re feeling down, supports you when you’re slipping, and strengthens you when you’re weak.

And this may require a bit of learning how to just say, “No”.

When we have the courage to say “No” to what we don’t want, we open the space for the thing we do want to come in.

I’ll give you a really practical example of this.  Last week we began our first week of The Love & Magic Salon.   The Salon is a 5-week group coaching/teaching/learning experience.  We meet via telephone at noon Pacific time.

When I put the group together, I consciously made the decision to have the live group calls in the middle of the day.  I did this fully realizing that there would be people who wanted to join but wouldn’t be able to attend the live calls.  In fact, (or so my inner nagging fearful gremlin voice kept reminding me) it was possible that the majority of people would not be able to attend the live calls.  This made it a little more difficult to make that decision. So,  I decided to record the calls and design the program so that people who couldn’t attend live could get value out of the program too.

I realized at the time, that I could easily create the program to take place in the evening.  And I chose not to do it.  I said, “No”.  Because the life that I am creating and maintaining and living doesn’t include being in my office in the evening.  Yes, I have that voice in my head that says “Wow think of all the people who won’t join in the program now!”  AND I still said, “No” to holding the classes in the evening.  Because I know that in order to say, “Yes” to what I do want I need to say, “No” to what I don’t want.

One of my favorite ideas is that “every big shift comes after a big letting go”.  I let go of the nagging idea that most people can’t attend something in the middle of the day.  That’s okay, it’s a small class, and I don’t need MOST of the people.  I let go of the idea that I “had to” make the live calls available to people in the evening.  The people who are a great fit for this Salon will come to the live calls during the day, and/or listen to the recorded calls at a time that suits them, and it will be perfect for them.

This was an opportunity to allow the Universe to support me.  I made a very clear intention of what I wanted, I designed the entire program to be a great value for everyone involved, and I walked it out by saying “No” to what I didn’t want, and saying “Yes” to what I do.  In doing this I am modeling for my clients and students how to be open, set boundaries, trust the process, be conscious about choices and to allow the Universe to support them.

I believe that the Universe is ALWAYS supporting me, and this is how I show that trust and that belief.  My way of “walking it out.”

I want you to say Yes.  And it might require you to say, No.  Be brave, be kind, be loving…trust the process.

Love & Magic,
