Jamie Ridler’s Wishcraft prompts are so inspiring and life changing. If you’re interested, here’s how they work…
What do you wish to transform?
You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt above on your blog and then add a direct link to your post in the box below. Support wishes by visiting other participants, leaving a comment saying “As (insert name) wishes for her/himself, so I wish for her/him also.” It’s that simple. There is great power in wishing together. Let the magic begin!
This is a very “simple” wish but hard to put “out there” for the world to know. I wish to transform my financial present and future…the way I think of the money I make, how I spend it, save it (or haven’t), how I can use it to help grow my best life.
My family history with money is mixed, my parents both grew up in the depression and they had/have memories of money always seeming to be hard to come by.
We grew up, not poor, but seemingly”lacking”, we couldn’t buy milk because it was so expensive so we had powdered milk (yuck, none of us would drink it), most of our meals were comprised of ground beef as a base, we couldn’t buy the “cool” jeans for the start of school–only the knockoffs, etc. At the time I didn’t realize it, but it was an atmosphere of lack–“we can’t afford that”. So…that seems to be my reality. I spend a lot of my money unconsciously without regard to the future I wish to have and often have a feeling of missing out on some really great opportunities because I don’t have the finances to take part. I know that a lot of my financial difficulties are because of my attitude and not because of the amount of money I bring into my household–I do make enough money to support myself very well.
One of my brother’s seems to spend his money similar to me–he makes a decent wage but does not necessarily save or think of the future when spending day to day. My other brother has not made as much in his earlier years–makes a decent wage now–but has always taken care of his finances in a way that supports his life so that he can live it pretty much how he wants. Not sure how children that grew up the same way can be so different, and how one brother learned the financial lesson so well–even as a child–but myself and my other brother just didn’t “get” it.
So…I wish to transform my financial consciousness to know that I CAN and DO support myself and my hopes and my dreams very well. I can save to support my future goals. I can have a budget that pays my living expenses easily and with gratitude for having a house/home to live and thrive in. So I can live in a way that “supports my life pretty much how I want”.
Beauty doesn’t lie in the expenditure of much money, but in the artistic disposition of little.

Prayer and housekeeping–they go together. They have always gone together. We simply know that our daily round is how we live. When we clean and order our homes, we are somehow cleaning and ordering ourselves. – Gunilla Norris
Work like you don’t need the money, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like no one is watching. – Satchel Paige
Thank you. As everyone wishes for themselves, I truly, truly wish for them as well!
