How Does Wish Work Fit with Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is an important component of wish work for several reasons, though wish work extends beyond being mindful in the moment.
In order to be effective at wish work, it's necessary to be crystal clear inside about the possibility that wishes can come true. A first step is being mindful of all the wishes that have come true in our lives including wishes we couldn’t even imagine.
Mindfulness awakens us to an awareness of what is flowing in our lives in the moment. Wishing involves being both thankful for what is already in our lives and looking forward to what we want to bring into our lives.
We've already discussed in some posts how to practice gratitude. We can't say enough words of encouragement for getting into the practice of conscious gratitude. It is the perfect method to set a positive, hope-filled inner environment which invites what we want to bring into our lives. Mindfulness brings us to this place of realization.
Doing this in a meditative state is ideal. In fact, your question has just inspired us to work on a "wish meditation". We can envision a guided meditation that will lead the listener to a place of gratitude contemplation and then invite their heart's desires to flow.
There it is!
Mindfulness is a key to unlocking the flow of your heart's desires by naming them and, most importantly, by inviting the feelings you will have when those heart's desires become real in your life.
For us, mindfulness practices like meditation, contemplation, and a host of other similar practices are a perfect fit with wish work. In these trying times, we all need a break from what weighs on our minds and hearts. Wish work enveloped in mindfulness is the perfect antidote!
