How Magic Helps Build Up Our Imaginations | Potterhead July 2016July 17, 2016
Hello everybody! I am very excited to be a part of this year's Potterhead July, hosted by the lovely Aentee @ Read At Midnight. She has brought a bunch of people together to create a whooping 85 posts to appreciate Harry Potter before the release of The Cursed Child.Today, I decided to put together a bunch of ways Magic has helped build up our imaginations.
- It opens up your mind
If you are willing to believe in magic, something that seems so out of this world and impossible, you will definitely be willing to open your mind up to a wide range of other things that seem like huge stretches to accomplish. That's creativity for you, folks. Being able to think of and believe in basically anything, no matter how hard or how unreal it may seem.
- You are part of something which is practically unknown
Magic is a huge, huge blank canvas that you can splatter many different paints on. You can make it into anything and it would work. It's like the biggest ball of rainbow play-dough in the whole world. You can mould it into anything, make it in any colour, and squish it back into a ball and re-shape it when you're unhappy with it. This gives your mind the chance to explore all those endless possibilities and allows it to be as creative as it can be to bring out the magic in itself (ha ha).
- It excites you
I don't know about you guys, but whenever I think of world with magic, I think about a world where I wield a ginormously huge amount of power over my life, where I hold the ability to do anything with a sprinkle of the secret ingredient, where I can touch the sky and fly up high with no limitations. This excites me a lot, and in my experience, my mind is a lot more creative when it's pumped about something. Things like magic boost up your enthusiasm levels, transferring all that positivity and buzz to your mind, which jumps around with its hands in the air like it just does not care, goes bonkers, and comes up with the craziest and most innovative things.
- It helps you look at things differently
When you immerse yourself in the possibility of magic, it changes the way you look at the world. After reading or watching about magic, I always think of possibilities I could do little things in my life with magic - I could run faster, I could fly to school and bypass traffic and a long, boring bus ride, etc. I feel like this gives my mind an opportunity to be imaginative about usually boring things. It increases my minds ability to rain spirit and animation to any old mundane element.
Those are the ways I think magic helps build up imaginations most. What other ways do you think contribute? Do you agree with choices? What do you like most about magic? Why do you like magic? Leave a comment down below and let me know!
HAPPY POTTERED JULY!
