It's Wishcasting Wednesday - Today's topic is Luxury

It's Wednesday, and I always enjoy going to read about the topic for today's Wishcasting at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/

Usually, I read the topic and respond immediately.  Today, I decided to read all the other posts first to see what luxury meant to others.

Had you asked me this a year ago, I would have said what many others have said - the luxury of time.  Well, the universe gave me that luxury in March when I became unemployed.  On a leap of faith, my husband and I decided to 'retire' for as long as we financially can.  We've bought a 5th wheel RV and a truck and are planning to travel and see the US and Canada.  The luxury I wish for today would be to be able to do this for as long as we want.

When the time comes that we chose to have a regular home again, the luxuries I would want, and maybe even insist upon would be a deep soaking tub in a large master bathroom, and a lap pool.  I put this out there now because those two items have been on my manifestation list for years.  I know when the time is right, they will appear in my life, easily and effortlessly.  I just don't want the universe to forget!

Other luxuries I'd wish for:

The fast metabolism I had as a teenager, so I can eat whatever I want!

A good haircut, no matter where I am on my travels.

A mani/pedi every 1-2 weeks.

A monthly massage.

Whatever our idea of luxury, I know and affirm that we are all deserving of these things now!

Wishcasting Wednesday

It's Wednesday, and I always enjoy going to read about the topic for today's Wishcasting at http://jamieridlerstudios.ca/

Today is about stretching.  What do I wish to stretch?  I can think of a bazillion things to stretch,  from my muscles to my budget to last night's left overs (so I don't have to cook tonight...). 

But most of all, I'd like to stretch my imagination to include the unlimited possibilities of abundance, prosperity, joy and happiness.  I'd like to stretch my imagination to easily write the next chapter or two in my mystery novel so that it stays fresh.

And honestly, if I could touch my toes without bending my knees - I'd love it!

IN DEFENSE OF CLUTTER

You may look at my desk, and see clutter. I look at my desk and see that everything I need to do is right there. I tend to be suspicious of anyone with a tidy, clutter free desk. Years ago, when I worked in a medical office, my desk looked like a disaster, but I could put my hands on anything and everything in a blink of an eye. I knew where everything was. There was an office rule – Don’t mess with the piles on Betsy’s desk. When I left that job, my replacement came in and always had a spotless desk. I couldn’t figure out how she remembered what needed doing, if it wasn’t in front of her face. Turns out she didn’t, and she is no longer in that job.

What we call clutter can be a good thing. It keeps things out visible, in front of our eyes, and demands our attention. It’s what we do with the clutter that counts. Some clutter needs to be released and discarded. Some clutter needs filing away for safe keeping. Some clutter just needs attention and to be dealt with. We get in trouble when we no longer see the clutter.

Today, I see and appreciate my clutter. I am listening to the message my clutter has to offer. Release and let go of that which I no longer need. File or place things of value in a place for safe keeping (or viewing). Work on the projects in front of me, on my desk, for it is a place of honor and respect. It’s my working altar!

It's Wishcasting Wednesday

Twitter and Facebook are really amazing.  I met Charlie aka Shamsi331 on Twitter who posted a link to Jamie's (aka starshyne) website regarding Wishcasting Wednesday.  What a cool idea.  You post your wish on your blog and then link to others and offer support.  Same idea as a prayer circle.  I thought I would share, so here's the link:

This week's question/concern is what do you wish to begin?  My wish:  I wish to begin to create a simple routine that allows me time in the morning to meditate, journal, exercise and get ready for the day in a calm and peaceful manner.

Thank you Universe!
