Wishcasting Wednesday - Nourishing

Today Jamie's Wishcasting Wednesday question is

What do you wish to nourish?

I wish to nourish my soul. I continue to seek out ways to live as my most authentic self in everything I do, but I find that the excavation process to find that self can be painful and slow. I wish to continue this work, even during the painful and slow times, because that nourishes and strengthens my soul. I am here in this time and place as a unique creation and I have a purpose to pursue and fulfill. I have been placed here to do and be something that no other person can do and be in each moment of my life. I may have spent a good deal of time covering that up and trying to do what others believe I should do and be, but that just slowly starves my soul.

I am not pretending that I will get rich or be famous or any other thing by pursuing my personal purpose in life. Most likely I will continue to run into obstacles that I must work with and around. It certainly won't be glamorous. But I will be most gloriously alive in every way that counts to me if I follow my soul's leading. So I seek to nourish my soul. That sweet, fiercely gentle flame at the heart of me that burns with the fire of living and living well.

My intention this week was to sink more deeply into my authentic self. It certainly can be tricky at times, but such an important task. I'm learning to go in the direction of what makes me feel good. As Sulwyn wishes for herself, I wish for her also!

I think if the excavation process was easy, the reward wouldn't be a great. What is it ... the struggle is what makes us stronger and transforms caterpillar into the butterfly?

I was really struck by what you wrote today especially, "I have been placed here to do and be something that no onther person can do and be in each moment of my life." What freedom this type of thinking gives us to be the special unique person we were meant to be. No more comparisions with others.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and words.

Oh Sulwyn...how beautiful is all that you've expressed...
The excavation process can be tiring and hard work, but the depth of the layers, and the delight of the treasures you may uncover as you continue working may be inspirational and fill your space in ways you cannot even begin to fathom..
As Sulwyn wishes for herself so I too wish for her as well...

Sulwyn - thanks for stopping by the mountain mermaid. It does seem that the 'nourishing' theme was similar with a lot of wishcasters. And I think it is important to nourish ourselves - for if we are nourished we can better deal with the other parts of our life.

I hope I have inspired you to get outside and get lost with your inner self! It is lovely!

As Sulwyn wishes for herself, I wish also for her.
