I wish! I wish! How many times have you though about something you wanted and sort of implied to yourself you would never get it? It’s very easy to ask for something and at the same time limit the chances you have of getting it. After all, the world is full of messages that give us a belief that we can’t have what we want. One of the key messages is that you have to ‘derserve’ good fortune. That you only get it by earning it. That you have to work hard. And even then you still might not get it because it’s not meant for you.
Today I was sitting in the Centre with a group of interesting people drinking coffee and eating chocolate biscuits with my pink slippers on. We were relaxed and chatting about all sorts. It was one of those ‘pinch me, I must be dreaming’ moments. There I was, at work apparently, having a wonderful time in fab energy. There was no stress. It was lively. People were enjoying the moment. As I looked around I felt contented. My world was perfect for that moment. I felt the lift of my heart. Early this morning I woke from a dream feeling rather stressed. I had been chasing around trying to find where I needed to get to for a meeting. The clock was against me. It was as if I’d gone back to my old corporate life. It took me a moment to remind myself that it was old feelings coming to the surface to be released. Apparently my mind felt it was now safe to let go of that stuck energy. I spent a few moments Reiki-ing it away. As it cleared I wondered how much other stuff I’m carrying that I’d be better off without. Later in the day I also realised that I had an opportunity to appreciate how different my working life is now. These two moments in my day showed me how much passion I have for my work now compared to back then.
There was a point in my life when I wished that my working life could be different. So I changed direction and job. I wished for a new working life but still thought I had to earn it somehow. I spent a lot of time still stressed out but in a friendlier environment. Underneath I was still wishing that my working life could be different. It took me several changes of job to recognise that I carried the stress with me to each new start. What was missing was belief. I wished for better but didn’t think I deserved better. So I ended up getting more of the same. I feel very fortunate that I was brave enough to switch on my intuition. Doing so sent me off on an inner journey. I had to take a long look at what I was wishing for and the way I was sending out those wishes. I found that lack of belief in myself. I notices all my wishes were half-hearted, half-baked and half-right. No wonder the changes I needed never came about. How could they when I wasn’t even convinced I wanted or deserved them in the first place.
That is the point when I decided to take action on myself. I set up a ‘Wish’ and a ‘Granted’ board. I wrote down my wishes and pinned them to the board with pictures or items to represent the wish. As I got my wish I moved the wish, picture or item to my granted board. I felt a bit foolish doing this at first. I also realised that some things I really wished for weren’t even on the board in the first place. How could they ever happen then! I treated myself to a crystal wand and started waving it about in front of the wish board whenever I added a new item. I wanted to show the Universe I meant what I wished for. I got more ambitious in my wishing. I asked for more significant things. I allowed myself to spend some daydream time imagining that I’d got what I wished for. It’s surprised me that the more I wished and believed the more I received. Not always in the way I expected but certainly in a way that gave me a great feeling.
Now I have a slimmed down wish list. Most of what I’ve asked for has arrived and I can sense that the rest is on its way in. I believe beyond doubt that anything I wish for will be delivered. So I ‘work’ with passion in an easy, stress free way and I have an abundance of everything I want. One of my most useful wishes is “I want to feel like I’ve won the lottery every day.” I don’t wish about winning the lottery – it’s the feeling that matters to me. If something is going to make me feel that good every day I want more of it. So the Universe delivers – small, medium or large wishes so that I can honestly say that I have that lottery win feeling at least once every day. Today it was the contentment of knowing I’m no longer a wage slave. Who knows what it will be tomorrow. So make your wishes, believe and they will come true.
