"N" is for Nature
Margie went on her dream trip to Scotland recently and the weather was glorious! Wait, what? Did we just say that the weather in Scotland was glorious? Yes, we did!
She put out a wish to the Universe: “I want the best weather for every situation while I’m in Scotland or better!”
Notice she didn’t ask for "warm and sunny" all the time. That wouldn’t have been ideal in some settings. For instance, when her, her husband, and some family members were driving over to the Isle of Skye, they had misty skies that split apart to show a rainbow. How does it get any better than that?
Barbara has a long history of weather-related wishing, even before she had her wish practice. She even acquired a reputation that made her a favorite at school events because every time she was involved in the planning, the weather was perfect.
Wishing for good weather may seem like risky business, but upon reflection, there are stories of humans doing this throughout recorded history. Margie remembers a story about how women in the Italian neighborhood of her hometown put rosaries in their windows the night before a wedding, so the Blessed Mother would intercede and provide good weather.
This is one of those traditions that we notice marks the long history of wish practicing in many different beliefs and cultures. Think about “rain dances,” but also think about stormy weather. We believe that our emotional vibration is what the Universe attends. Imagine being in a stormy mood - infuriated - for a long period of time, like more than a day. And then a storm comes. This is one we cannot answer definitively, but it’s interesting to consider that our power to bring our heart’s desires into reality can really work - whether we are mindful of good weather or preoccupied with our internal “storms.”
For us, this is the reminder that helps us maintain awareness. Our practice is an active, positive “inside job,” tuning our vibration and our highest good. When we lose that focus, it’s like we’re sending a message to the Universe saying, “Bring on the storm.”
Next week, we’ll discuss dandelion wishes!
Peace and All Good
