Experiencing the Magic of God in Daily Life

I’ve recently begun to realise more and more how the magic of God surrounds us every day and that there are messages to behold in the most obvious and unobvious of places. The messages are there for everyone; they are not given to a chosen few or those aligned to certain religious beliefs and you do not have to be special or gifted.

I’ve accepted that the magic of God can be seen by everyone, from the very young to the very old, men and women, black or white, ‘good’ or ‘bad’.

What if we have simply forgotten about what it is we are seeing and thus what it is that is being communicated to us?

It seems our life takes on a ‘life’ of its own and we get so caught up in doing things, being distracted, stimulated, busy, rushing around, reacting to the devastation and destruction in the world, getting sick and emotional, feeling overwhelmed and being exhausted… that maybe, just maybe, we miss all of the things God is sharing with us.

Our family has begun to share the magic of God every day. One of these times is when we all come together at the end of a day to share the evening meal. This time of the day gives us an opportunity to talk about our day and express all that we have seen and felt within it.

The sharing of our days gives us all an opportunity to hear and feel the magic of God everywhere, whether it be in our own bodies, with nature, or in a traffic jam or in the bustle of the city in which we live.

Here are some examples of the magic of God experienced by family members in a day:

  • Walking the dog around the block I noticed a bright yellow daisy bursting up and out of a crack in the concrete. What I considered in that moment was that I may have to overcome obstacles (which was very relevant to me personally that day) and that I can overcome them and still be myself, shining as bright as the sun. And that, no matter what, I don’t need to hold myself back.
  • While stopped at traffic lights a white feather floated past the windscreen. The feather reminded me of who I truly am and where I am from. What I felt is that we are angelic beings here to be light and loving to ourselves, and with everyone around us.
  • I opened a kitchen cupboard and reached for a coffee mug. It fell out and broke on the kitchen bench. I realised in that moment that I did not know what I was doing and that I had gone into automatic pilot and was in the motion of getting things done and wanting to rush. This brought me to a stop and I was then able to reconnect to myself and to my body as I made a cup of tea with more conscious awareness.
  • During a lunch break while going for a walk, I was stopped by a bee working away as it went from one flower to the next. What I could feel in this moment was how bees are always busy and totally committed to every flower they stop at, or whatever other activity they are doing. They never sell themselves short, give up or are half hearted about the task at hand. A bee gives one hundred percent commitment and attention to detail to everything it does, and in this, I was reminded of the commitment I can make every day to myself and to work.
  • On getting up off the couch I walked straight into the corner of the kitchen table, bumping my hip. This made me stop and consider where I was in that moment and to consider whether I was holding onto any ideals and beliefs that I could let go of.
  • On driving to work I followed a number plate that said SOG 709. The acronym made me think of ‘Son of God’ and, in this, I was also reminded of the fact that God is Nature, and that numbers are found in Nature everywhere, making me appreciate the fact that everything is by design.
  • I was sitting down to eat some dinner. I enjoyed my meal and went back for a second helping. As I dished out the food, it spilt onto the table, completely missing my plate. The spilt food made me stop and realise I had actually eaten enough and did not need to overdo it or overeat by going back for more.
  • On carrying my grocery shopping from the supermarket to the car, a beautiful butterfly with yellow and orange markings flew alongside me. I stopped to appreciate that there is joy in everything I do and even the weekly shopping can be playful, reminding me that I don’t need to take the chores in life too seriously.

I am deeply thankful to Serge Benhayon, Natalie Benhayon and Universal Medicine who have inspired me to develop my relationship with God and to be in communion with him every day.

  1. I love your examples of the Magic of God – I too have them everyday! It’s wonderful to break free from the notion sold to us that the clouds have to part and something spectacularly irrefutable has to happen for us to have confirmed there is divinity in our lives. If I were to look for something epic and biblical, I’d miss all the communications that are there everyday.

  2. I love this blog Sally, as our family does a similar thing during dinner time and it makes everything that happens in the day full of purpose and holding of a reason for it being that way, with the great potential to learn from every moment and occurrence, however small or insignificant it may seem at the time. In contrast, when I am in reaction to something or rushing, I miss all these incredible signs of God. But one that does come to mind was when a bunch of co-workers and myself had to go to a recurrent fire extinguisher training for our aviation jobs and actually take turns putting out a small fire. We all could not help but consider the symbolic nature of what we were doing as there had been many problems and disharmony on our crew that we were working to ‘extinguish’ lately, only to have them resurface again and again because of a reluctance of a few members to embrace the potential brotherhood that we once had together. What a direct message from God!

  3. When I get out and interact with humanity I am very aware of messages from God. When I withdraw into myself I don’t see or hear the messages and life gets very dull.

  4. It is our choice whether we feel left behind by God that we are on our own. A so called why me’ attitude or to feel the love of God in all we experience and surrender without putting a label on it of good or bad.

    1. It’s great you point this out Annelies – I have a habit of doing the why me?/poor me, I’m not as loved as other people are, I’m the odd one out – it goes on. This happened recently and I could hear all these thoughts but knew they were rubbish. Rather than entertain them I decided to just feel the hurt that had been uncovered. A fair few tears later and I came back to me. Now it’s a vague memory that isn’t current. But if things had gone according to my plan, I’d not have had the chance to let all of that and I knew this at the time too.

  5. When we start to look more deeply at life, we begin to see that there are never coincidences and never accidents and that every moment and interaction is an opportunity for us to go even deeper. I especially love nature when we observe our connection to it even more and we realise that we are not separate from anything. Today I was about to give a presentation to a group of people at work. I noticed that there was a solitary large wasp flying in the room and he was looking to get out. He knew he did not belong in the room. I walked over to the door, opened it and he flew out. No fuss, no drama and no one battered an eye-lid. This said to me hold steady, don’t doubt, know who you are and you will be cared for.

  6. I like this part about not taking the chores in life to seriously, it is a great reminder of how life has the potential to be. Light and playful, yet responsible and productive.

  7. It’s amazing how Nature works. Everything is by design interconnected and has its purpose. Love how respectful animals are with each other, how flowers don’t hold back their beauty, how every single being accept death as a natural part of the cycle of life… by observing Nature in this way I see the potential that we can live as human beings, working together to develop a true advanced society.

  8. Such a beautiful sharing Sally. It invites me to stay more open to the little details in my everyday life. How enriching life can be if we read with such a profound understanding all that happens around us. It connects me with the joy of a child who is discovering life and learning from it for the very first time.

  9. I saw 14 written 3 times on a 3 bins today – it was such a celebration, 3 times and I took it as a confirmation. There are so many signs of God for us to observe, numbers are very significant. I feel the power and simplicity of them to observe and connect with.

  10. Reading you blog Sally I am remembering the beautiful rainbow I saw yesterday and the confirming message it offered to me that what I was pondering on recently was now ready to be taken to the next level and brought to the world. Thank you for sharing you experiences of the magic of God.
