Wishcasting Wednesday


This is a good week to start wishing again. Not that I stopped, especially with my birthday just a few days ago and you and I were doing a whole lotta' wishing then!

Today over at her lovely, artistic, and expansive new web page, Jamie Ridler Studios, Jamie asks, "What do you wish to invite in?" And after you read about my wish, make sure you stop by and see Jamie's new digs; it's really quite impressive.

So, I wish to invite in the fresh summer air especially just after the grass has been mown. Or, if it showers and you can smell the rain, I wish that air to waft through. Fragrant fresh air into my home and to my thinking.

I wish to invite in anyone who wants to stop by for a visit or a chat or a drink or a hug. Or maybe just a quiet sit by the fountain. Invite my Self in to visit with Me.

I wish to invite in a sense of peace. About my life. About my current internal struggles. About the world around me. I want to invite in, peace.

I wish to invite in a sense of order and structure to my days. I'm loosing too much time contemplating my navel these days. Time to get moving on things instead of just thinking about them. That may mean less time here in the blog world. I'm still considering my options with this one.

I wish to invite in a sense of whimsy and charm. It seems to have gone missing in action for awhile now, and I would dearly love to have it come home and race around me like a puppy, enticing me to romp and play.

I wish to invite in a song...into my heart. A melody that brings me cheer and lets me know that everything will be all right and as it is meant to be. My singular song...I wish to be able to hear it clearly.

And finally, I wish to invite in a continual dance in sync with The Divine...and be all right with following instead of insisting on leading all the time. Because when I insist on leading, I find the dance is not as magical as it could be.

These are the things, I wish to invite in.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

Hi Holly that last line struck a chord. You are right about when we try to lead ourselves, think we can go it alone-it somehow goes pear shaped very quickly.
I know things would get better if I let God in a little bit, but I am not talking to Him at the moment.
Just being stubborn.

Holly - the last part - dancing with the Divine - you already have that wish granted, although you may not know it 100% of the time. The other parts - as you wish!
I like blogging, even though it takes time - it's really a JOURNAL that other people happen to comment on. Most people would agree that it's a good thing!

As Holly wishes I wish for Holly also. I will sit with you by the fountain and we could just sit quiet understanding and planning. Ribbon had a nice post you may want to look at. It was just a reminder. You will find what your searching for, it might be there at the edge of your fingertips. Big,big Hug. XO

As Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

What beautiful wishes. I felt like I was invited in to the beautiful world of Holly.

And thank you for your kind words about the site. It means the world to me.

I'm sorry Mr. Linky's a bit under the weather this morning. I've sent him a get-well card and hopefully he'll be much better soon.

Holly, many of your wishes resonate with me. How I wish we could sit together and chat about them. When I visit your online home, it always seems that you've expressed perfectly what I'd been thinking.

I pray that you receive the peace, order and structure you seek and that music, whimsy and charm fill you to overflowing. And, may we both find it easier to follow more often.

Hugs,

Pamela

You spoke to longings I think a lot of us have.

Wishing you well as you dance whimsically with the Divine, balancing an inner life with the action life.

Whenever I read your wishcasting wednesdays, I think I want to do that too next wednesday, but I always forget (Maybe I should wish for more memory space in the hard drive in my head).

I own a Westie and I am So in love!!! I have had dogs my whole life and the last one I had was a Carin Terrier which I adored but *Ziggy* stole my heart the very second I laid my eyes on him. I will work on him as I learn which I think will create a stronger bond as well!

Scotties are adorable too!!! :) I adore terriers. They are little bindles of endless energy and love!~
