The other day I came across something rather upsetting about myself. I realized that even though i have all these big dreams and wishes, my belief that they actually could ever come true was on a bit of a shaky ground .
It was one of those “Shit, have I lost my belief? When did that happen, and where did I leave it?” .
I remembered a blog post I read many years ago (that I can't find anymore ugh) that was about making your own magic spell list. The idea is that you write down your wishes and dreams you'd like to come true, and then you keep it in a safe place and actively keep those things in your vicinity.
You can write down very concrete small wishes that you'd like to see come true, that aren't too far away in the future. I decided to do this again to kind of break down all those distant and abstract hopes & dreams, and show myself that my wishes do have the potential to come true.
When I look back just a few years ago I wished more than anything to fall in love and be in a relationship. And, although there's probably many factors at play that resulted in that finally happening, i did close my eyes and make a wish many times when I saw a falling star. Just saying.
I've had other dreams come true too, like getting a cat (I even wrote a whole blog post about it, that's how serious I take it). And, at the moment we have TWO cats!! I mean if that's not magic I don't know what is ;) So, why couldn't my other dreams come true too?
Even if you don't believe in a bit of magic, then try making a wish list for the simple reason that when we articulate our goals we actually take more action towards achieving them.
I love making lists and the idea of jotting down the things I really wish for at the moment feels like a nice little way to send out some signals out in to the universe that says "hey, if you've got a spare minute I'd appreciate a helping hand with these things" :)
I'll end with a quote I came across by the genius T.S.Eliot:
"Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough"
What about you, do you ever write down your wishes & dreams?
