Wishcasting Wednesday

"What do you wish to share?" Good question for this week's wishing. I want to share a revelation I had on Sunday while I sat waiting at work for someone, anyone to arrive. It rained and was cold and windy, and no one came to the model home where I work as a greeter. It was silent, snug and comfortable and I had lots of time to think.

I want to share what I have come to realize from wishing with you each week. I realize that I can't expect more without being totally aware of all I have and be completely in the moment of expressing my gratitude for it all.

How can I have more when I don't acknowledge its existence in the now and be thankful for all I have. So, I started my Cosmic "THANK YOU!!!!!" and came home that evening and made Michael sit while I carefully and with intention thanked him for all that he has provided and brought to my life. For all that he has made possible.

For the dreams that he's made come true. For the work he does every day to support us while I still work to find my way to contribute. For the love, friendship, and laughter he brings to my days.

I sat and ticked off all the things that are part of my life that, at one time, where nothing than a hope, a wish, a prayer, a plea...and now they are here. I need to shout thank you!

So, I share that I woke up and got it. And, I look forward to seeing where my wishes take me next. But not before I say thank you to all of you for being part of my Ah-HA moment.

I share how much this weekly ritual has come to mean to me. And, how grateful I am to be part of your wishing with you. Thank you Jamie...for all that you share...I hope to return the favor. But for today-I wish to express gratitude as much as I wish my wish.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka She Who Is Grateful

As Holly expresses and shares her gratitude with what is in her 'now', I express and share with her as well.

It is true, gratitude and acknowledging what we already have been blessed with is the beginning of receiving so many many more wonderful things in our life!

As Holly shares her gratitude, I join her in creating the best possible life for ourselves!

Holly, when I read your posts I always feel like I'm sitting around the fire chatting with you and nodding my head in agreement.

I think that makes us friends!

Love you and your kind deep heart.

As Holly realizes and cherishes all the blessings of her life, and as she feels gratitude for all her wishes come true, I wish for her more of the same.

Oh Holly what an insightful and beautiful wish. How easy it is to want more and forget all that we already have! Thank you for this important reminder. And if more couples acknowledged each other in this way, there would surely be much less anger and divorce and more love!

As Holly wishes for herself, so I lovingly and fragrantly bless her with my own wishes for her!

Holly,
I just followed a few threads from Sema's blog and what a delight to find you. As I peruse your site I see aspects of "me" all over it. I love how you describe yourself in your profile. You are a divine creature, as are we all. I've bookmarked your site and will return. Blessings upon your beautiful creation...(I especially appreciate your attitude of gratitude!)

Oh, wow. What a profound post. I actually teared up while reading it, because I was so happy for you, and I also realized how very much for which I have to be thankful.

As Holly shares her gratitude, so I share with her as well. Many blessings as you continue the journey.

KathrynAntyr said...

As Holly wishes for herself so I wish for her. Oh yes...we must be grateful for what we have before looking for anything more. I often tell myself, "start by taking care of what you have." By taking care includes taking note and being grateful for it. Wishcasting is a great practice. I'm happy to be joining in each week.
