"When we wish for something our consciousness opens to receiving it like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee". by Madisyn Taylor
From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have 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 ethereal visions that either stay with us or fade like a star in the light of morning. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, expressing our hearts 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 the realm of the rational mind. Allow yourself to feel the feelings of what your wish feels like. You are making the connection with your hearts true desires. Typically what arises after the feelings of excitement run through you, come the questions and concerns about why “it" can’t happen to you. It’s ok, let them arise and be taken away by the soft breezes of the springtime air. This is an opportunity for you to see what is not in alignment with your highest good, and to love it free!
Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. If you have given up wishing in favor of more adult pursuits, you might want to bring its magic back into your life. The next time you see the first star of the evening, or find yourself in front of a birthday cake covered in flaming candles, give yourself the gift of the magical realm that you knew so well as a child, close your eyes, open your heart, and make your wish.
My wish for you is to breath deeply and allow the freshness of the Springtime to gently enter and support you as you experience the light and love that You are.
