A Collection of Magical Moments that Touch the Soul

by Jeanette M. Pintar & Other Real People…


What is "Soul Magic"?

It's one of those magical moments that reaches your heart and touches your soul. It deepens your consciousness, heightens your awareness and changes your perception, perhaps transforming your life forever.

Sometimes we know the moment the magic occurs - and we know exactly how it will affect our lives. Other times we only discover it was Soul Magic much later when we look back and reflect on how we've arrived at this point in our journey.

Everyone experiences Soul Magic at some point in their life.

It comes in many shapes and sizes and through a variety of experiences… Soul Magic can be attained through traveling to foreign countries or visiting a part of your own. It can be unearthed through finding faith or discovering spirituality. It may be the success symbol of over-coming an addiction or working through therapy, transforming old wounds into lessons of healing.

If you have your own stories of Soul Magic to share, please e-mail them to Soul Magic. Your experiences will be included in the Soul Magic Collection on this page and may also run in issues of SFPNN or The SFPNN Special Edition.  When enough Soul Magic stories are collected, I may pursue publishing them in a book.  Although there is no guarantee that the book will transpire, I will do my best to ensure its creation.  In the meantime, thanks for sharing your experiences. 

 The pages that follow are filled with individual experiences of Soul Magic from people all over the world. Sit back, relax, and let some Soul Magic cast its spell over you.
