It’s human nature to create; we’re happiest when we’re in a creative flow. Magic is a special act of creation, one that consciously links the divine world above with the mundane world below. In this episode, Donna explores the relationship between creativity and magic, and how you can begin to bring more of that divine spark to your own world.
