Wishcasting Creatively


Jamie asks what do I wish for my creativity? I wish...I wish...I wish I respected my individual ability to create as much as I admire the creativity of others.

I wish that I could see it as readily as I'm able to see it in others.

I wish I were more kind with my own attempts as I am with the attempts that others make and miss. Yeah, I wish that I cheered for myself as much as I'm always cheering for those around me.

I wish that I did all that and opened my abilities even more.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

I didn't know you were a painter...and yet I'm not surprised!

As creative and talented Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her too!

My sponsor is frequently reminding me that I count too and I have to look with honesty to see if I owe myself an amends or am taking care of myself. It doesn't matter what others think of your artwork if you are not able to appreciate it fully.

Hey girl, I knew you were a wonderful painter because I saw the painting you did in Olivia's bedroom. I had no idea you could paint like this!!!! It's beautiful!!!

Giving ourselves credit where credit is due can be tough sometimes-- So when you don't do it for yourself know that I'm out here doing it for you!!!

As Snarky Sister wishes for herself, I wish for her as well. Go for it!!!

I think we find it hard to see the strength of our creativity in ourselves. But that is why we have friends to tell us how good we are. You are GOOD Holly!!

As you wish Holly I also wish for you, I love your painting, YOU are talented, you definately do offer a lot of support and encouragement to others. believe, believe, you got it going on, I remember the murial you painted on the wall, gorgeous. hugs

Take action beautiful Holly and let go of childhood conditioning :)

You know the one.... where it's not okay to shine as you may be considered a show off.

I'm just guessing here, but most of us have some form of childhood conditioning that stops us from self appreciating our capabilities.

be well
big love to you

The beautiful thing about wishing is that as soon as the words are in your heart, something is shifting. Here is to the nourishing and opening of your abilities, my friend. I love seeing your work!
