“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.”

Archetype VI: The Magician
The Magician sees life in a similar way to the Innocent, but claims more power. While the Innocent will trust the universe to make things happen, the Magician will be a more active change-maker Magicians are willing to take a stand, even if it is risky or revolutionary. Yet, unlike the Warrior, they also give up the illusion of total control over their lives, and in doing so take on an ability to read the flow and move with greater effect. This is why they can appear to do ‘magical’ things. In their personal journeys, Magicians have allowed themselves to be transformed, and the reward is power.
