The Magic of a Wish

From finding a four-leaf clover to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have all felt inspired to make a wish…or, 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 at dawn. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, 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 arms unfolding to welcome an embrace.

There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, as it recalls the energy of childhood. Unlike the realm of adulthood, wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step-by-step to attain a goal. Wishing -- a playful volley across the universe -- is an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is an integral part of the process. Wishing inspires the possibility of magic, as we wait to see if the invisible realm will bring our wish to life. Being open to possibility is a beautiful gesture in and of itself, regardless of the outcome. We place ourselves in a magical mind, and this state of mind is arguably as wonderful as the fulfillment of our wish.

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 mind and make your wish.
