Wishcast Wednesday – What do you wish to celebrate?

Hooray!!

Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast prompt this week is…What do you wish to celebrate?
As soon as I saw that, my mind went to thoughts of “hooray!”, feeling great, and a huge smile on my face…that’s what I love about these prompts, the question takes you to that mental space and feeling of the question. 
I was at a workshop recently and the speaker talked about “positive inquiry” and how important those types of questions are to us each and every day.  When we ask questions that take us to a positive place, such as “What’s good?” our emotions follow along.  Jamie’s prompts take us there…brilliantly. 
So…what I want to celebrate are a few little things… 
After a week of feeling ill with one of the worst head and chest colds I’ve had in a looooooonnnnnnggg time, I’m feeling pretty spry.  I still sound like I’m ill, but my body knows better and has rebounded with lots of really good energy.
While I was ill I took some serious stock of my life and the direction it’s heading and I decided the direction was not in the interest of my best life.  Now, I talk the good talk, but the actions have not been following the talk.  So, I’m refocusing myself and setting some goals for myself that are pushing/pulling me more where I want to be.
I’ve had to do some begging and pleading with God/Spirit/the Universe, which I really hate to do–the begging and pleading part.  I feel I have a pretty good relationship with Spirit, but, again, I haven’t been living in Spirit lately.  I think I’ve been living a bit unconsciously (or a lot), but God and I are on a better foot now.
Mostly, I’m just celebrating having a renewed energy and drive to live my best life!!

Oh…and I want to celebrate along with Jamie for her new book – Wishcasting Journal: 52 Wishes to Awaken Your Dreams.  It must be such an amazing feeling for her!

I’m reading this book called “Soul-Full Eating” by Maureen Whitehouse and am thoroughly enjoying it.  Realizing that the food I choose, how I prepare it, and how I savor it are all part of the process of nourishing myself, not just the food itself or the act of eating. (another thing to celebrate!!)  In the book, I found these two quotes, I’m not sure if they match the “theme” today but I just love them!
Just Sit There
Just sit there right now.
Don’t do a thing.
Just rest.
For your separation from God
Is the hardest work in this world.
Let me bring you trays of food
And something you like to drink.
You can use my soft words
As a cushion
For your
Heart
– Hafiz, Persian Poet
Love is all there is.
You live that you may learn to love.
You love that you may learn to live.
There is no other lesson.
Hence, your Soul is always full,
Of Love.

  1. >Hooray for health and feeling spry again! I love the last poem that you posted. Thanks for sharing. As Ceanne wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

  2. >Sweet! Love the poem. As you wish, so I wish for you, too.

  3. >here's to your health, Ceanne! re the begging and pleading…for ME (just speaking from my experience), when i get in that place, i realize later i was coming from a place of scarcity. maybe you could reframe it so that it feels like you're asking from a place of empowerment. sending you big hugs as you move in new directions. as you wish for yourself, i wish for you also.

  4. >Isn't it amazing what feeling sick will do??? Suddenly we realize that without our health, most things are next to impossible to enjoy! SO HAPPY to read that you are back in good vibrations again.LOVE the Hazif poem..you can tell he was a close companion of Rumi!As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well – and congratulations on your new perspective on what's really true and important to you!
