My Mom Is A Magician

I know I told you that magic and miracles played a huge part in helping me to find the new Bull&Dragon...

But, did I ever tell you that my mom is a meditation teacher, crystal healer and a vegan? 

Yeah, I grew up a vegan. 

The irony of life. 

Sigh. 

After being immersed in the magic of life lately, I realized that my mom is a bonafide Magician. Not in the make a rabbit appear out of a hat kind of way, but essentially, my mom works as a miracle and magic maker, and therefore, at her core, she is a Magician. . 

Factually, we are all Magicians. 

We just need to learn how to channel the incoming and outflowing magic. 
 

I've got some Magic to share with you for New Year's Eve and the night before New Year's Eve. 
 

If you're looking for more Magic in your life and the people that believe in Magic and Miracles, I'd love for you to join me and the band of marry makers and Magicians who will be present these nights. 

 

My Mom Is A Magician

I know I told you that magic and miracles played a huge part in helping me to find the new Bull&Dragon...

But, did I ever tell you that my mom is a meditation teacher, crystal healer and a vegan? 

Yeah, I grew up a vegan. 

The irony of life. 

Sigh. 

After being immersed in the magic of life lately, I realized that my mom is a bonafide Magician. Not in the make a rabbit appear out of a hat kind of way, but essentially, my mom works as a miracle and magic maker, and therefore, at her core, she is a Magician. . 

Factually, we are all Magicians. 

We just need to learn how to channel the incoming and outflowing magic. 

For the past year, my mom and I have been meditating together. She had asked how she could help me move, literally and figuratively, out of the stuck state I was in, and I had replied that I'd like her to meditate with me. So, we've been doing that. Every. Day. 

It's made me a better human BE-ing, a better man, a better son, a better friend and a better chef. I'm more patient, kinder to myself, and more connected to the pulse of life in everything. I've learned things, too. About me. About the cycles of life. About magic and miracles. And, about my mom.

When I was 10, I decided I wanted to eat meat. My mom, who had raised me as a vegan, explained to me that if I wanted to eat meat, that I would have to kill what I ate. She wasn't punishing me. She wanted me to understand where meat came from, to have reverence for all life, and to honor and respect the life of each animal I ate. So my dad took me hunting, and I shot a duck, and then my dad and I butchered and ate that duck.  This was a powerful ritual for me to undertake at that age. Or, any age, really.  I've served over 10,000 meals and yet, I've only used 4 cows. Not many chefs can say that they understand the responsibilities of eating meat and have an underlying philosophy and consciousness about eating and serving meat. 

As I move into this new stage of growth, I have so much for which I want to thank my mother. Without her guidance and wisdom, I would not be a chef, I wouldn't be a proponent of regenerative farming and agriculture, and I wouldn't be in this new space. Literally and figuratively, my mom moved me. 

I'd like to share how she helped me and what I did to get unstuck. Looking back, I can see that it's a process that has a few components. I'll offer up the first one now. I've got some Special Events to cook for and this weekend's Dinner Parties in the Pop-up to prepare, so I'll come back and post the other couple of components over the next few days. 

STEP ONE: Take 5 Minutes and MEDITATE Your Way to Magic & Miracles

It's not what you might think. I mean, I'm not going to suggest that you try to quiet your mind. Instead, I'm going to ask that you just sit down for 5 minutes, breathe in 3x, close your eyes, and just listen. After you do this for 30-60 seconds, you will connect to that still, small voice within yourSelf. You know, the real YOU that's always just beyond the voice(s) screaming in your head. Now, I am going to ask that you notice how when you pay attention to yourSelf, it will quickly calm the voices, calm your body, calm you. 

Once you've found that calmness, ask yourSelf what it is that you want right NOW. 

Listen.

Get the answer. 

It will come to you. You don't have to search for it. Just be patient and breathe and it will pop in like magic. 

Take the guidance. 

The miracles will come after you take the guidance. Stay calm. The miracles will jkeep coming. 

The miracles are those little pieces of info that can seem insignificant, that you can so easily brush off as a whim or meaningless or even a nuisance. 

Pay attention to each one. Follow it like a bird on a trail of breadcrumbs. 

Yep. That's it. You've got it. 

I'd love to hear the magic that comes from this. And the miracles. Just send me an email LINK or make a post on my Instagram LINK or go to my FB page LINK. 

I'd love to share the magic of this time and space with you! Please book a seat at the new Bull&Dragon for New Year's Eve or New Year's Eve Eve. 

Let's raise a glass together and toast to Your. Best. Year. Ever.
