Wishcasting Wednesday


"How do you wish to stretch?"

That's the Wishcasting question for the week. Y'all know that's not me in the picture. I found her sitting on the Internet looking all peaceful and very focused and limber. The image just spoke to me.

I want to stretch the notion of Myself. Stretch past my self-limiting thoughts. My fears of, "You can't do that, are you crazy?!" Don't try...you'll fail. No one will care what you think do, say... I want to stop twisting my spirit into a psychic pretzel, and instead reach and stretch for the heavens.

Yeah, I want to stretch past all of that old thought, internal chatter and noise.

And, I want to stretch every dollar that my husband works so hard for these days, especially since I've still not found a way to contribute to that burden. I can at least contribute by finding ways to make things stretch as much as possible here on the home front.

Finally, I want to stretch my desire to be shed of this excess weight even further than I think it's possible. Right now, I'm meeting with some success, and I don't want to give up. So help me stretch into my authentic shape and help me stretch my patience with the process. Because trust me, it will take perseverance and patience.

It'll be divine to walk around in my true form instead of stretching further into stretch pants. I'm worth all that though, don't you think?

Here's to stretching yourself into your authentic life...come on just a little further; I know you can do it! Reach for it!!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

You sound like you're half way there :)

Holly if that image spoke to you then it means it already exists in you.

You can stretch past the internal chatter and find the quiet of God. I recommend meditation.

You can stretch those dollars which are only energy anyway. I recommend GetRichSlowly.org, Manifesting Your Destiny by Wayne Dyer and Creating Money by Sanaya Roman.

You can drop the excess weight which only represents something other than weight anyway... boundaries maybe?. I recommend The Diet Cure by Julia Ross and the above Dyer book.

If you have the desire, it already exists in the Universe. You simply need to focus on manifesting it!

As Holly wishes for herself, so I fragrantly and lovingly wish for her also!

So inspiring and wonderful, you have made me think about stretching into my authentic body. i love this thought and thank you for it! Have a great week!

Chester said...

Good luck on that wearin' of the non-stretchy stuff. Would it be too much of a stretch to tell you to send all that good food you're tryin' not to eat my way? I'll do whatever I can to help with the weight loss.

Your buddy,
Chester ;0=)

I could do with stretching past the old inner critic too - a bit more self belief.
Keep stretching and every day you'll reach a bit further...

Ah, you are speaking to my authentic self with that line and she hears you. What Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.
Namaste!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

I'm behind you all the way - these are wishes we all can aspire too.

I found a new website called FitDay.com that is a free tool for journaling your food and exercise. It shows you the breakdown of carbs, proteins and fats.

I'm on the same journey as you - we can walk along together (and of course bring our Scotties too).

Although.... my mind's vision of you twisting your spirit into a psychic pretzel was kind of interesting.

Stretch away woman and stretch us along with you. You can do whatever you set out to do - if not this day, then definitely tomorrow. That's how I roll anyway. And you know me... always counting on those tomorrows.

PS: I too need a good stretch now and then. Thanks for the reminder.

Sarah said...

Hee hee I like the idea..hmmmmm - oh and I love you too!!!! Hugs, Sarah

Holly,

You said everything I wanted to say but so much better! Wouldn't it be nice if we had a switch that could just turn off all of those negative thoughts?

Namaste Holly... I see you stretching and as you reach out and up to the stars, you move into unfamiliar spaces, your body, mind and spirit release the old internal chatter that no longer server the beautiful Divine being you are.

Barbara said...

As Holly wishes for herself, So I happily wish for her also! And I love what Bonnie wrote on my comments about the idea of stretching implies that we have the ability inherent in us to begin with to use those muscles. She's so smart. So I hope you know everything you are is already divine. And whole. And perfect.

Marisa @ Getting Back To Basics said...
