"Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes."
~ Mary Martin
Do you ever find yourself wishing for something that isn’t in your life at this time? Do you think about what you want in a wistful longing way? Do you wish that your wishes would come true…at least some of them?
Most of us do find ourselves wanting and wishing for something other than what we have. Whether it be something more or something different, it is the natural way of things. This is the way we are built. Wanting something more or something different is what drives us forward…it is what we are here to do.
As we identify things that we want or don’t want, we expand the Universe. This is exactly why we came to this physical plane…to experience, to grow through our identification of our preferences. And once we identify what we want, we set out a desire for it…that is exactly what a wish is.
Your dreams and goals are wishes. They are requests to the Universe for something that isn’t in our lives at this time. Here’s the good news…the Universe is always answering those wishes. Your dreams and desires are always being assembled for you. If you don’t believe me, just take a look around you. Take a good look. This is what you have been asking for.
Now you are thinking that I am crazy, but if you think about it, it is true. Perhaps you don’t like your situation, or perhaps you wish for something completely different…and nothing changes. That is because you have been looking at what you want from a point of not having it…this is the general feeling you have when you think of your desire…and so, that feeling manifests…and you get what you are thinking about…not having it.
I talk about this matter of perspective in “How Do You Think About Your Life.” It is an important consideration as you think about your dreams and desires. No matter if you believe me or not, you are surrounded by your wishes fulfilled.
Isn’t that good news? Don’t you love knowing that the Universe responds to and answers every wish. So, all you need do is allow the answer to come into your life. Don’t resist what you have asked for by thinking about the fact that you don’t see it right now. When you resist, you are actually just wishing for that wonderful thing to stay away from you until you can stop resisting. If you don’t resist, it will show up…and in the most amazing way.
Wishes fulfilled. That is the story of our lives. It is exactly what we get every day. So, the next time you are thinking about what you want…wishing…know that your wish is being granted…but also think about how you are wishing…are you wishing for what you want…or the lack of it?
Do you think I’m crazy to think like this? Do you feel that I missed something? Or do you agree with me and can see how this is working in your life? Let me know what you think. Leave a comment and share your views with the community. We’re listening.
