How to Real Make Magic in 2017- Learn how to Coddiwomple !

Yes you heard me correctly. Isn’t that the best word? Just saying it out loud makes me want to know how to do it. It feels like it belongs in a magical Harry Potter universe even though it’s actually an old English slang word.

And no it’s not a dance, although in some way learning the art of coddiwomple is indeed something that is conscious of rhythm, but it’s the rhythm that arises from music heard by the soul, played through the web of invisible strands that make up our world as an instrument of Spirit.

Maybe dancing to the beat of a different drum where we’re meant to stumble across miracles and other unexpected gifts along the way. What way? To Where? Well, to nowhere specific other than to have experience for its own sake.

It’s not easy although it sounds like a funky and fun thing to do for those of us who know that the way forward is uncharted. (Actually a couple of people in my Uncharted Book Club on Facebook posted the same meme about the word which got me to writing this blog)

The key to coddiwompling is to be a determined traveler, but to release attachment to the “where” at the same time. To properly coddiwomple is to release all need to know the final destination, to let go attachments to a specific form or experience in favor of travelling “purposely toward a vague or as yet unknown destination”.

Manifesting your reality in the most magical way possible should include some coddiwompling. . Why? Because now more than ever the result of “where we end up” is less and less predictable as so many variables converge to reveal new directions and pathways, that come with uncovering truths hidden in the layers of life that seem to perplex even the most adventurous of us.


Magic happens as the result of the alchemy between us, our desires and Spirit, and when we surrender to Spirit, amazing things happen, formless becomes Form made manifest seemingly out of thin air. Synchronicity becomes more and more real as the invisible world proves itself to be the greater reality.

It’s why I refuse to listen to negative predictions and postulations about the future state of the world. We have power. We have the power to speak, to stand up for ourselves, to say what we believe, to know we are enough, to remember that freedom needs to be claimed and not assumed and to use whatever skills, talents and imaginations we have to better the world.

We can co-create a powerful magical life no matter what the current conditions of our world. Not like the radically ever happy Pollyanna but perhaps like her well informed twin sister with a goodness radar strapped to her forehead and her attention fixated on discovering what works, what can be shared and what can be healed. ( Ok she sounds kind of weird but you get the picture)

One of the participants in a current small group weekly intensive I hold told me today how she came to me and why she was still wanting to study with me. She is a woman I have seen blossom in front of my eyes in the most amazing ways. She is vibrant and brimming with life and possibility and her eyes twinkle in a way that just makes me smile in anticipation of a miracle.

She said “ You know, I don’t know why I keep coming but I just know I have to! No idea where it will take me but it’s already changed me so much. I just know it’s right.” How often have you just known you need to keep going, to keep exploring something with no clue other than your intuition and a deep sense of “ determined rightness” even if you have no destination in mind? That is what it means to coddimomple!

This week, consider the idea of following only that intuitive push, that invitation to travel into each 24 hours with only the goal of experience, and curiosity. I bet if you coddiwomple you will discover there is magic everywhere if you open your heart and eyes. Spirit has a plan .. and a destination much better than yours or mine. If we follow along… we will surely experience more than we could imagine.

    After had read this article I feel all of the sudden so much better. I came to your site hoping to be able to get some answers directly from you since I don’t have any strong guidance in the spirituality close at hand that I connect with. I wanted to shortened it because it’s rediculously long but I don’t think I can. I hope you can reply me sometime soon anyhow.

    My new life started about a year ago where I came to a point of needing to finally accept my gift as part of my true devine self in order to be truly happy in my life. Since then my gifts have… boomed, but it’s not fully blossomed. As I’m writing this it came to my mind that what I’m actually afraid of is my true potential, because I don’t know where it will take me. What if I end up on the darker spectrum of spirituality?

    I’m a buddhist and a believer of God and the devine (I believe that whichever of the top 5 religion you’re from, God is one and the same but we had different messengers on earth guiding us). I believe in the good, that whatever you wish or do upon others will always come back to you so I always try to use my gifts from that place. At the same time there are so many lies in our society of what’s percieved good or bad or deceitful or not and there are a lot of justification for acting selfishly especially when it comes to the spiritual world (one of the reasons I have a hard time connecting with someone that I can accept as a mentor).

    So going from that, today I ordered oracle cards for the first time online. I’ve had tarot cards before when I was younger but eventually didn’t really connect with them or even used them properly (also because I tried hard not to believe in the spiritual and took all those things as proof that spiritual world is just a fairytale). And your oracle devination cards was one of them. I later read you should’ve gone to a local store to feel the cards but it didn’t matter that much for me.

    I took an entire day to browse through the cards, because I tried super hard to find a deck of tarot cards to have one deck to use as a clear guidance to things on the physical plane, but no matter how light or beautiful their illustrations were they felt very murky to me. Even the angel tarot cards. So I gave up and only ordered oracle cards with the mindset to use and combine them in whichever form I need to since they’re more free from rules. I ordered 4 decks (one of which is a deck of angel cards for a friend since I heard she got sick after playing with tarot cards when she was younger) and I was happy with my choices although I questioned the need for three oracle decks at once. They all resonated with me and for my purposes, all very beautiful cards with clear messages to me.

    After my order I looked through reviews of the decks on youtube. I didn’t feel dfferently looking through the first two decks but when I looked through the deck review of your cards I was blown away. Through the computer as the person was showing card by card I was just hit with this powerful energy that gave me a WOW-feeling for every single card. Like when you’re at a big concert and the massive bass would just slam through your body. It was just so powerful but yet it’s from a source of light and not overbearing. I knew there and then these cards would speak the absolute truth directly from… archangels and whom else are up there… when I get to hold them in my hands.

    Because of that feeling I had to go back and looked at the other cards again and I was worried when I got darker feeling from the other cards. Not dark as evil dark, but it’s from a different source. Then I looked through a new deck of cards for lightworkers and got brighter feeling from it. A small part of me got slightly panicked and felt I need to change one of the decks I just previously ordered to one with angel oracles, but at the same time I wanted this deck. This deck (messenger oracle) for me represents the spiritual world in its entirety, the middle ground between the living and the angels, not only our direct spirit guides. And part of me was afraid of this complete coverage of the spiritual world because I know there can be “darker” energies and so far I’ve only been talking to my angels and spirit guides and just wanting to surround myself in that loving bright heavenly light. At the same time I had other people telling me that we need to accept whatever darkness might come up in us in order for us to grow stronger and heal from that so it doesn’t take up space in our life later on.

    So I wanted to ask you because as it seems I’m currently uncomfortable of darker energies, and maybe it’s in my head but because my friend told me she can’t handle tarot cards I thought it would be because of the energies that was used through those cards. Would it be a good idea to use these cards even though I’m not sure what to put this feeling I have about them? In one way I feel it’s the universe’s way of saying this is where I need to learn to grow and get past it. On the other hand I don’t know… I guess I’m lost lol. Help?

      only work with oracles that you feel good with. Example ALL my decks are created with the SPECIFIC intention to connect to your Higher Power. I can’t speak for other creators. So when you get a sense of whether a deck will be in synergy with you choose that one. Its the intention of the deck you’re tuning into – card decks are built on energy and intention.
