Happy New Year! May we all be blessed with expanding our love into the world in our own unique way. Welcome to my Magic Happens column, for me this is an exciting leap allowing me to express my love of life.

Let me introduce myself, Anne Round, at your service. I am a lover of life, a big smile person, and a committed light bearer for humanity. On the ground in this life, I am a retired physiotherapist, a wife, a mother, a creative, a sailor, a skier, a dancer, an author, and a contemplative with a host of other interests and explorations. On the cosmic level, I am a brilliant light of vibrational energy, vast, and multidimensional, just like you are. Here on planet Earth, I reside in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. My spiritual journey has moved me towards meditation, shamanic journeying, and various energy healing methods. Step by step, my limiting beliefs that I had taken up and were restricting me from knowing myself as love in action have transformed. Now I like to flow with life, allowing ease and grace to be my companions. I have learned to trust in life. The more I trust and allow life to unfold, the easier it becomes. I walk forth in peace, love, and joy.
My creed is that by being the love we are, we are contributing to the expansion and evolution of humanity. When we acknowledge that we are love, a part of the fabric of the Universe, and a part of nature, then we can allow love to flow into us and radiate out of us to do its work in the world. The mystical is how love moves through us beyond our mental control. I am sure you have felt the sudden movement of energy flowing through you like a stream on its way to an unknown destination, love in action. Increasing our awareness that love is always flowing allows us to open ourselves to more love for ourselves and others and reduces our need to impede the flow. We gain trust that the Universe knows what it is doing and how to support us. We follow our intuition, knowing it is life guiding us. We share our love light with our smiles, in emails we send, books we write, and art we create. All our creative pursuits hold our energy. We get to choose whether we are going to add love with intention or not. Every fresh breath and every step, we are always creating anew. Doing so with an intention for the highest good and love for all expands every possibility. This is how we will consciously build a new world where the source of all action is love instead of fear.
Creating love in motion: Here is a simple practice that creates a pause and inward focus while walking. I take my first step thinking and being “Peace.” The second step being “Love” and the third step being “Joy.” I repeat this triad as I continue to step along contemplating the words and being present to my surroundings inside and outside. I hope you enjoy this simple walking meditation.
May the love you are shine into 2021 with diamond brilliance.
