When we were kids we were encouraged to “make a wish” from blowing out candles on a birthday cake to when we saw a shooting star in the sky. As we grew older, life became hectic with work, family, and other obligations. No wonder Peter Pan never wanted to grow up and leave Neverland.
What if I said that being told to make wishes was not a cute way to make kids get excited about their birthday or to get them interested in astronomy. It was a way to instill hope and faith from a young age. Do you remember when you wished for that new bike? You saw it in the newspaper, cut it out and put it under your pillow. Dreamt about it and woke up thinking about it. You would talk about it constantly to anyone who would listen. Then one day you woke up and saw that new bike in your front yard. It was given to you as a gift. You may not have realized it then, but you manifested what you wanted.
If we already know how to manifest what we want, how come we don’t do it? We are distracted with our lives that we forget to go back to the basics of things. We are all guilty of it. Thankfully, there are ways to help us tap into that part of ourselves again.
