Wishcasting Wednesday

Today Jamie Ridler asks us...

How do you wish to grow?


Usually I like to answer the prompt before reading other people answers, but I needed a little guidance with today's question, and it seemed I wasn't the only one.  When I got to this post from Gaelach with the Clan of the Moon Goddess, and read the first line of her poem: "I wish to grow like a weed," I remembered a drawing a did on the summer solstice a few years ago.  The painting that evolved from that drawing is the one you see above...

I *do* wish to grow like a weed, self-confident, unashamedly naked before the world, sharing my natural gifts and talents, creation, inspiration, magic, joy, and love, rainbows of joy & creativity sprouting from my finger tips, prosperity springing from my footsteps.

You can be a maker of magic and a tender of wishes. It’s easy. Answer the wish prompt on your blog and then add a direct link to your post in the box [at the link] 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.

  5. There's a Susan Piver quote that I love, “Confidence is the willingness to be as ridiculous, luminous, intelligent, and kind as you really are, without embarrassment.” This sounds exactly like how you want to grow. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too.
