Magic on ice

Award-winning travel writer Jini Reddy travels to Iceland to connect with nature, beauty and the queen of the elves

The magical has always been on my radar. As a child, although I was studious and guided towards the sciences, if I came fascinated. I was into nature, too. Over the years, my loves – nature, wild places and the magical – began to deepen and eventually, come together. While on travel-writing assignments, for instance, I yearned to go ‘o -piste’and track down the local shaman or indigenous elder – someone who could help me to interpret the nature around me in more meaningful ways. As a seeker of the magical, I was keen to connect with people who could summon it up! I believe that in keeping an open mind and heart, we open ourselves up to the possibility of connecting to a life force that is bigger than ourselves – and which animates the physical world.

When we override our logical, rational mind and connect with our wider, wilder consciousness, we become more sensitive to the life around us, we deepen our subtle listening skills and our field of perception expands. Nature becomes both a source of inspiration and an ally. And the cherry on the cake? We’re more able to invite the unexpected, magical, mysterious and synchronistic experiences into our lives.

About Psychologies

When we change our minds, we change our lives. This issue explores what happens when we do just this. What if you didn’t resign from a job, but could change the way you feel about it? Or what about finding a new way to open up to love? Or, what happens when we challenge the judgements we make about ourselves and each other? Read the astonishing life-changing effects of what happens when you think differently.   Change doesn’t always feel positive - you're made redundant, or your relationship breaks down, or we lose someone we love. And it's awful. Yes, we don’t always have control over what happens out there, but we always have control over how we react to it. This issue explores how to change our perspective to create the world we want.
