Making Wishes Come True

Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never ever have enough. - Oprah Winfrey

When You Wish Upon a Star- Makes No Difference Who You Are- So, Make a Wish
By Jean Harper

The Holidays are quickly approaching and before you know it, Happy New Year 2012! The holidays can bring us lots of joy not to mention a lot of “gifts”. It seems there is always more we wish for yet we don’t take the time to really discover what our true wishes are let alone spend the time it takes to make them come true.  One approach to making your wishes come true is based on a theory called the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction is a force from which we attract to ourselves whatever we give our focus, attention or energy to. If you are constantly down on yourself about being out of work, alone or in debt, and you believe your thoughts, you will continue to attract more unemployment, loneliness and scarcity into your life. Fortuitously, according to this theory, the reverse is also true. If you focus your thoughts on achieving your dream job, marrying the person of your longing and being rich, you will attract just that into your life.

There are many books, CDs and even videos on this topic and you can certainly learn a lot about how to attract to yourself exactly what you desire.  The first step is to visualize the wishes you would like to manifest; close your eyes and make it tangible in your mind’s eye. You also have to believe that you deserve your wish for it to come true.


The Gratitude Ingredient

Gratitude is a positive emotion in acknowledgement of a benefit that one has or will receive. Everyone should express gratitude.  It really doesn’t matter to whom that you offer thankfulness; the important matter is that you express gratitude for the things and emotions that come into your life.I have noticed that people who tend to experience gratitude more frequently than others tend to be happier, more helpful, forgiving and less depressed. Everyone has something to be grateful for. You can start with the simple things like “I am grateful that I have a warm bed to sleep in.”

Close your eyes, make a wish, visualize and say “thank you.”  May all your wishes come true!

Happy Holidays!
