Wishcasting Wednesday

Today's Wishcasting Wednesday question from Jamie is:

What is your Winter wish?

The first wish that pops into mind is simply emotional survival. I have clinical depression, which is often exacerbated by the darkness this time of year. The strangest part about all of this is that Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons! So no matter what I am dealing with a physical paradox, I suppose.

After sitting with the question a bit longer, my Winter wish is to use the time to prepare to launch my Etsy store and bring myself that much closer to my dream of bringing Wild Oak Cottage to life as a business that supports me and allows me to share my gifts with the world. I still have a ways to go to complete the dream, but an Etsy store is the most easily attainable first step. I also hope to have a school chosen to pursue my Massage Therapist License and to find the right teacher and tradition in Reiki so that I can have an avenue to share my healing gifts with a wider circle than just my immediate family.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who wished with me last week for closure. I had a telephone hearing yesterday and I know that no matter what the final judgement is, I have found closure and am able to put the whole miserable experience behind me. I am just sad that it had to happen in the first place, and that I allowed a betrayal by a pastor and co-workers to color my thoughts about an entire denomination that they represented.

I love that you have outlined concrete steps to bring you wishes into reality. I hope that you find your light within helps counter the effects of the season. I too am wanting to reconnect with reiki, so thank you for this reminder!

Sulwyn, of all the things I could read today, the opportunity to hear the peace in your voice about closure is the absolute best.

Reiki blessings on you as you search for what is right for you, and if I can help you, please know I'm always open to talking to you about that.

As Sulwyn wishes for herself, so I lovingly and with intention wish for her also! Namaste' Dear One.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also Sulwyn!

I know about the debilitating affects of depression. This time of year is so hard without the high voltage of the sun and it's kisses on our bodies...let alone for those who are chronically depressed. I wish you extra dosage of Light during this season, and instead of darkness, let your openess to the changes you want to make for yourself light the way to those whom you need to make these wishes come true.

Peace,
WRO

You have your feet on the path, and real-live stepping stones to set you on your way. I know you'll be able to do it.

Learning Reiki is a dream of mine, too. I hope you'll share your experiences.
