The Spiritual Practice of Abracadabra-ing

SpiritualPractice-MagicWandDo you ever wish you had a magic wand that you could wave over your life experience, and say the magic word “Abra-cadabra!” to create a better situation? While we can’t give you an actual magic wand, we do have an amazing spiritual practice that produces magical results!

This spiritual practice employs mindfulness meditation, affirmative prayer, visualization, and positive affirmations as the open sesames to healing and enlightenment.

Abracadabra, as an incantation, was first used in the third century AD in a book called Liber Medicinalis by Sammonicus, a Roman savant and physician. He recommended wearing an amulet displaying the word written in the form of a triangle:

A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B – R – A
       A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B – R
           A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A – B
             A – B – R – A – C – A – D – A
               A – B – R – A – C – A – D
                 A – B – R – A – C – A
                   A – B – R – A – C
                    A – B – R – A
                       A – B – R
                         A – B

The power of the amulet was believed to cure diseases and guarantee health and longevity. From a spiritual perspective, it is the ‘abracadabra nature’ of the divinely ordained powers within us – and not an external physical object like an amulet – that cure illnesses and disease, and guarantee us the health, wealth and happiness we seek!

This powerful spiritual practice invites you to employ all of the practices mentioned in the opening paragraph as spiritual ‘amulets:’

  • Spend time in the Silence,
  • Affirm your connection with Spirit,
  • Visualize your alignment with your Divine Nature, and
  • Repeat positive statements about your intentions to be, do and have from a consciousness of abundance, gratitude and connection.

mountaintop-JoyFind moments of extreme happiness, ecstasy, and joy — whether they occur from meditation experiences, becoming totally absorbed in a sunset or star-studded sky at night, being immersed in a physical and/or mental activity that brings you incredible joy, or experiencing heart-melting music.

Say to yourself: “Every time I face a troublesome life situation I’m going to say to myself ‘What spiritual principle can I use to give me the wherewithal to handle this situation?’” It sounds so simple, but it works. Having the intention to purposefully call upon the spiritual principles you know is a prerequisite for drawing them from your memory banks and making recall easier.

Outline key areas that you feel are critical for your spiritual unfoldment:

  • What are the necessary conditions for your spiritual progress?
  • What spiritual principles do you value above all others?
  • Define your theology.
  • Clearly articulate what you consider important about spiritual growth.
  • On what spiritual matters will you not compromise?
  • Design mindfulness meditations, affirmative prayers, visualizations, and positive affirmations around the answers to these questions.

We’ve seen this spiritual practice literally transform people’s lives. People get excited when they feel the congruence between what they believe and what they regularly and consistently practice. The excitement usually translates into action — which becomes contagious and rewarding.

We invite you to abracadabra your way into the next version of you, as you walk the spiritual path on practical feet!
