After her divorce, Mallory Leone opened herself up to the universe and was ready to receive. Sometimes, traumatic
moments in our life are also an amazing way to gain some perspective, and Mallory was no exception. Years of trying to fit
into the mold of what society dictates as successful or attractive left Mallory feeling unfulfilled and unhappy. What she received
was, for lack of a better word, magical.
Lets Talk Trauma
You have it! Yes. If your heart is beating, if you are breathing, if you are a human on planet earth right now, you have
trauma. No matter how large or small, whether it is your own trauma or it is inherited through your DNA (no joke, google it),
you have it. Are some traumatic experiences worse than others? Of course. Does that make your trauma any less
significant to YOU? Nope! Is your trauma a valid reason for continued self-victimization based on your past and/or general
dysfunction in your life? (I’ll let you answer that for yourself but here’s a hint: Nope)
Trauma and Trust
Practicing magic has a way of aligning your wants VS your needs. Quiet your mind and focus your energy, but don’t forget
to listen within quietness and make room for the universe to give you her answers. Trust these answers, feel the flow, and
check your expectations. Sometimes you and the universe will be aligned, other times (gasp) you will not. Allow your
guides, God, Goddess, Universe, or highest versions of yourself to inform your continued decisions and beliefs.
It takes a village to raise your inner-child. Enlist help and INVEST in help. This kind of work should not, dare I say cannot, be
done alone. It does not need to be expensive - some of us only have time to invest for now - and that is fine. Do your research,
identify your resources, determine your budget (time or money) and most importantly TAKE ACTION.
Magic is not something that floats around randomly happening to people. Much like success, it is cultivated and created by
YOU. You wicked enchanted beast you.
