Wishing not Wanting
Have you ever had a desire or wish that you hoped would come true? Most of us are familiar with the terms, “Wishing on a star”, “The sky is the limit”, or “Be careful what you wish for.” What if you knew you really could wish on a star and it could come true, or that there really is no limit to the sky? What if I were to tell you the problem may be what you don’t wish for?
It is possible to receive whatever you wish for if:
- You truly desire it,
- It is in your highest good, and
- You believe you can receive it.
But maybe this is not how your life has worked in the past and you are questioning if it really works to wish.
Take a journey to the stars with me to test out intentional wishing.
Think about something you’ve really, really desired, but maybe didn’t believe you actually deserved or that you could have.
The seed of creation is an intention, which is planted and then nourished so it can grow into a beautiful outcome.
First, we need to make it clear there is a difference between wanting and desiring. The definition of desire is to wish for or expect something, whereas the definition of want means deficit or scarcity. Wanting something can have a negative effect on ones wellbeing or outlook, causing a sense of lack and even symptoms of depression or victimization.
The way to bring your desires to fruition is done through positive affirmations.
Intentions are powerful and flow through us and into the universe like a radio wave. If we “unintentionally” send out complaints, worries or regrets, the universe still responds to the signal. Those negative vibes can expand and return back to us.
A positive affirmation works with this universal signal and amplifies our intention. It is a phrase that we repeat, drawing attention to what we hope for or describing the met desire. The key is that we focus on what we want to have growing in our minds and in our lives. So we plant those seeds only. And then we allow them to grow.
Nourish your thoughts or desires and see where they take you.
When you first start saying your positive affirmations they may not be true, but with repetition they sink into your subconscious mind. You will start to believe them, and eventually they will become your reality. The seeds you have sewn and grown will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The ways to nourish the seeds through positive affirmations:
- Write them down and re-read them
- Record them and listen to them
- Repeatedly state them out loud
- Visualize yourself experiencing your wishes in “real time”
- Then all that is left is “waiting on the stars” to bring to you your new destiny.
The results of the journey speak for themselves
Amanda P. from Bear Lake, Utah, has taken this journey to the stars with me. She states that “By regularly using the affirmation exercises I have been able to create a more positive and healthy environment for myself and those who are a part of my life. My new-found belief in abundance provides a positive mentality in order feel good about myself and others. It allows me to prosper and attract even more abundance into my life.”
Using positive affirmations gives you back control of your mind and the information it receives. It puts you in the driver’s seat of intention and takes you on a road which will change you for the better!
