When We Wish For Something

Friday, March 27, 2020

When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.

From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into the fountain, we've all felt inspired to make a wish, to whisper our secret desires into the ears of the universe and wait for signs that we have been heard. Some wishes come true while others remain gossamer dreams that either remain tucked in the back of our subconscious or fade like stars with the coming of the dawn. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important messages, expressing our heart's desire as well as our intention to create something new in our lives. When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.



There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, something that recalls the energy of childhood. Wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step by step to attain a goal, which is our oh so wonderful world of adulthood. Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is a requisite of the exercise. Wishing inspires an innocent aperture to the possibilities of magic as we wait to see if the invisible realm will bring our wish to life. This opening is a beautiful gesture in and of itself, regardless of the outcome. We place ourselves in a magical mindset, and this is arguably as wonderful as the fulfillment of our wish itself.

In our straightforward, action-oriented population, we tend to dismiss the power of this seemingly passive process, yet the power of a wish is well known, hence the cautionary, "Be careful what you wish for." If you have given up wishing in favour of more adult pursuits,it's time we bring its magic back into your lives. The next time you see the first star of the evening or find yourself in front of a birthday cake covered in flaming candles, step back into the magical kingdom of wishing that you knew so well as a child--close your eyes, open your mind, and make your wish.

I know what I am wishing for...
