Whip the wand....

......and spell the magic
Have you ever thought of having a magic wand for yourself which you can whip out with a brief spell of magic whenever you want your wishes to be accomplished? I always wished i had one, like Mr. Harry Potter did in the novels of J. K. Rowling. Have you dreamt of waking up to a wonderland where all sorts of mumbo jumbo is possible and where animals talk to you and tress move, just like the characters of the novel - "The chronicles of Narnia" and "Alice in wonderland"? Are you thinking that i am going to run you through a fantasy story again and enthrall you into an imaginary land from where you would have to compel your heart to come out? I would not dare to do that again and make you a victim. I just want you to imagine something I do, most of the time, and see how it would look like to be in a place, where you can make things happen in a flash with just one word of magic. It would be utterly terrific if there is a land like that and we discover it, isn't it? I would be the first person to break into that land and invade a tiny part of it for myself.

Do you know that animals used to be friendly with humans, in the beginning, when the earth was created? Infact God created all the animals and other creatures of the earth, only to be cordial with Adam and be an accomplice. It was Adam who named all the animals on the land, birds in the air, the sea wonders and the creepy creatures that crawl. Nothing was clearly mentioned in the Bible, whether all the animals used to talk, except for the snake which deceived Eve. And after this story we hardly get to hear of an occurrence where a human had a talk with an animal until the amusing story of Balaam who headed to curse the Isralites, out of idiocy, and his donkey had to talk to him to make him realize that there is an angel on his way, trying to impede him. Having said all this, I want to ascertain that there was a land in the beginning where everything we fantasize was possible, but unfortunately, now, we are damned to set our foot in their. But from time to time whenever a human tried to maintain a strong connection with God, with all the faithfulness, miracles were possible in the world we live. And i think that is possible even now, but the only thing we need is to believe in ourselves. As far as I know there are two kinds of magic - one is alluring or bewitching magic just like love or music and another stupefying magic that leaves us in awe. I am sure most of you might have gone through the first type of magic and i am not going to stress on that at all. But i would like to share a confounding situation which was like a magical experience in my life, that is still beyond my understanding.When I was in my high school I accidentally got on a wrong bus, in a hurry to reach school on time. The bus was so crowded that I couldn't make out I was going to land at a far-off mysterious place; and by the time i realized it was too late to set out and make my way to school. However, i got off at a stop with a hope to figure out a way or catch some other bus which would at least take me to a familiar place. I stood there nearly more than an hour with no sign of any help or a bus approaching that way at that point of time. I felt completely helpless and I didn't even have a mobile to call for help. The only thing that crossed my mind then was to say a little prayer remembering God, which i did with all my heart and the moment i opened my eyes I saw an old friend of mine in front of me, smiling and wondering at me. I finally could breathe and he was so kind enough to drop me my school and then go his way. He told me later that he was not supposed to be that way during that time, but all of a sudden his mother pushed him to go that way to get an urgent work done. That was something unusual and astonishing which happened in my life and was possible only with my invisible wand called prayer. What i told you was just one little story of my life where i had to whip my wand out to make the real magic happen in this real world. And now its your turn to whip the wand and spell the magic:)

  1. weeee..I can relate to your experience Elvirah and I have lots of them where people came just the moment when you needed them most..for me it is really God's way of saying He is always there and He uses people to save us in a sneak of time when we really need help..Like you it was like magic and I just couldn't explain how did it happen at the right time and at the right place..passing by before I sleep Elvirah..goodnight *hugs* 。◕‿◕。

  2. Wonderful post Elvirah! Magic wand is one of my favorite too when I'm at my very young age,. A dream that until now was here at my mind, but this time it's for reality in life. How I wish, there's no pain, no tears and hardship too. But, i know it's part of our journey, now my wish is I hope i can pass all and overcome those trials in life.:) Very interesting post Elvirah, thanks a bunch for sharing..:)

  5. When I was small, I wanted a Godmother like Cinderella :) Later, I wanted to go to Hogwards. And then, I wished with all my heart that Harry Potter could be real :)
    Movies like Narnia, Harry Potter and Enchanted..they remain :) And I can watch them over and over again :)

    Lovely post. I love the pictures.

  6. As I grow up, I realized that there is something more powerful than magic wands-prayers.

    God works amazingly. Sometimes when we least expect it, He let us experience something magical in our lives, like what happened to you.
    God is greater than any fairy godmothers in storybooks. With him by our side, the world we live in is more exciting and enchanted than Hogwarts.

    This post is very inspiring,btw. :)

  9. Hello Elvirah!
    Thank you for showing interest in my blog.

    I love fantasy stories. Imagining variety of scenarios with magic is one of my favorite past times. I even pen down stories with such themes.

    I can relate to your thoughts in this post. I enjoyed reading it. You have a lovely blog.
    Have a good day! :)

  11. I too love fantasy just like u and most of the readers of ur blog:) Just like the fantasy world we have prayers in form of a magic wand but not always this magic wand of our works.. As the real control of this magic wand is in Gods hand because he know that if we had the entire control of this magic wand in our hands den most of them would misuse this in the real world.
    I loved it.. Keep writing:)

  13. Your story shows that even though we lost that magical land in the beginning, some of that magic is sometimes allowed to seep out into our world to help us when we really need it.

  16. Your story certainly enchanted me the entire time. I honestly appreciate Writer's who can write with such depth and meaning. I enjoyed how you weaved all the details together . . . I don't have that kind of talent, which is why I'm "stuck" with poetry. Ah well . . .

    Thanks for visiting my blog the other day. I am sorry that I am "late" to getting to "visit" you. I like your writings, so you'll be seeing me again, for sure. :)

  17. So true! Happens with me too, when everything falls apart, a silent prayer helps the most.

  18. There is magic in everything. It happens around us everywhere. Sometimes in invisible forms. But, if we listen closely, watch carefully and smell gently, we will know that magic is a part of our life. Little things that shaped us, the way we are, our beliefs, our friends, surroundings, families...everything is nothing but magic. We all have our stories, which make us believe that, there are enough coincidences in the world to make us believe in magic and miracles. :)

    P.S - I wish we could have could talk to animals. But, some of us already communicate with them..don't we? :D
