The Wishing Tree

Someone recently gave me a great idea- Tie some “wish” notes onto a tree or a plant with your kids.

What a beautiful and very real way to capture the imagination of your children and share your own wishes and desires with them too. I do believe putting energy, words, thoughts, dreams and desires into the world in words is powerful.

I’m a fan of road maps and truly believe this is the best way to get where you want to go in life. You can’t get there if you don’t know where “there” is.

Sometimes I find myself in lull periods, where the creativity and productivity and movement forward slow down and I wonder why.

Then I remember a simple truism that I learned once: Your results show what you are committed to. How TRUE!  I really do appreciate the quiet periods between the bursts of creativity, but I feel alive and powerful when those creative times come and I feel nothing can stop me.  I’m excited to share this with my 4 ½ year old daughter, Mikah and it was actually pretty entertaining to learn about the things she wants. Well, It’s a start to manifesting her own reality!

 On her list was a real baby sheep, dog and cat. Interesting!

I love the idea of my daughter and all our children realizing that the sky’s the limit, how a simple wish can blossom into a reality, and what a beautiful thing it is to share our dreams with them as well.

By the way, you can use any type of paper and if you don’t have string, opt for dental floss to tie the notes on! Have fun!
