A Special Wishcasting Wednesday


Most Wednesdays, I do a wishcast using a prompt provided by Jamie Ridler. This week, she’s pausing while her Mom deals with a health issue, to be present for that, to help and support her. Rather than skipping the wish, I decided to use it for something special, important.

I wish for healing and comfort. For Jamie’s mom. For Jamie and her siblings as they surround her. For my friend Ann who has cancer and is trying to make some difficult decisions about finances and treatment options. For her partner. For anyone who is dealing with a health crisis and for everyone who loves them, I wish for their suffering to ease, for them to be filled with a sense of well-being.

As I was leaving the gym this morning, after practicing yoga with Ann, after hugging her and telling her I love her, both of us shaking with tears, after reading Jamie’s post about putting everything on pause, I looked up at the sky. I took a picture so you could see what I saw, but what you don’t know from the image is that the birds were singing all around, mad with love for Spring, and something about that comforted me–that and the big blue over my head, the vast love and space that exist no matter how many hard things happen.

May all beings be happy.
May all beings be well.
May all beings be safe.
May all beings be free from suffering.

    I notice the birds singing every morning now. They wake me up with their vigorous, urgent song. Now I can attach the words “mad with love for spring” to that sound. That is just what it sounds like.

    Interestingly, I also did wishcasting today, in honor of Jamie and her Mom’s healing. Coming here and seeing you wished as well, adds something even more sacred to the process. Community is precious and powerful.

    Oh, Jill, this went straight to my heart. Both of my sisters came here too and were blessed by your wish. Thank you for your sensitivity and heart. Blessings to everyone in need of healing and comfort. Thank you for being a wish come true.
