What about magic? Is that another wishy-
washy concept or something real and
tangible? Years ago, when Jupiter was last
in my sign, Libra, my favorite astrologer,
Jonathan Cainer, said that it was like having
a magician walk ahead of one, making the
way easy and wonderful. Who wouldn't
want that! At the end of the year, he
warned us Librans not to despair at losing
such a helpful friend but to remember to
be our own magician. I have never for-
gotten that and try to live my life in that
belief. I always believe that things will
come out right in the end -- and they
generally do. Try to see the magic in
ordinary, everyday things; look at the world
the way a child does or imagine seeing
again after years of blindness.
How dare we take the beauty of our
world for granted, or the daily gift of life?
A cousin in America sent me a great
email this week, of things learnt from
Noah's Ark. My favorite is (of course!)
'When you're feeling stressed, float for
a while.' I also like 'Don't listen to the
critics -- just get on with the job' and, finally,
'No matter how hard things get, at the
end, there's always a rainbow waiting.'
Learning is a lifetime's occupation
and yes, we repeat many lessons as we go
along. But we must never get impatient or
critical of ourselves, just start again and use
the newfound knowledge to do better, feel
better, relate better, live happier.
Jim Rohn, the well known motivational
speaker and author, says these are the
four emotions that help us change:
1. Disgust -- when we've had enough of a
2. Desire for change
3. Decision to act
4. Resolve -- promise yourself you'll never
This tip comes from a friend who heard
about it at a workshop she attended. If
you have an issue to sort, decision to make
or problem that's troubling you, walk
around in a circle, clockwise, seven times,
saying out loud what you're dealing with.
I don't know what's supposed to happen
after you finish but I gather you feel
better, so give it a try. We're all capable of
worrying but we need to remember that
it's a learned habit that serves no purpose
other than to create more bad feeling so

best to unlearn it if it's one of yours.
When you behave in undesirable ways,
feel 'upset' or have physical symptoms, ask
yourself these questions:
❤ What am I doing to create this situation?
❤ Are my emotions helping or hurting me?
❤ What am I telling myself?
❤ What are the facts?
❤ Am I exaggerating or distorting?
❤ Are there other explanations?
❤ How likely are my worries?
❤ Whose problem is this really?
❤ What have I got to learn from the
❤ Am I failing to trust?
❤ Am I giving in to negative thoughts?
❤ Am I running into the future?
Why do we quarrel? Obviously because
we disagree with someone but there's
a lot more to it than that. It can be about
us or the other person. I always suggest
to my clients that they try to come from
a true motive so when we find ourselves
in conflict with others, it's good to ask
'Where is my anger really coming from?'
Fighting in a positive way is also import-
ant. Yes, it IS possible! Dumping anger is
not acceptable but expressing it is. One
of the main sources of disagreement is
differences. What we should do is learn
from our differences instead of letting
them induce conflict. Differences bet-
ween people can actually be strengthen-
ing rather than weakening. So, the next
time you feel like lashing out, being
defensive or standing on your pride, think
twice and then think again and stay calm.
Remember to appreciate your daily
blessings and not find a whole lot to
criticise about your life which is really
quite wonderful most of the time.
