Wishcasting Wednesday--Tending to Things

Wishcasting Wednesday again--it feels so good to be able to do this regularly again.  This week Jamie asks, "What do you wish to tend?"


My garden.  Not my physical garden.  I don't have one, although I have some dreams and desires in that direction.  I don't have much of a green thumb to go with those wishes, but I'm hoping to make some progress anyhow.

No, the garden I'm thinking of is inside me, in my heart and soul, inside my mind waiting for my attention.  It's my own secret garden, my inner landscape that waits for me filled with dreams and guides and visions.


I first learned of this garden in eighth grade from an odd book about meditation and visualization.  Going into my inner garden was once a fairly regular part of my personal spiritual practices, but I've let it slip away. And it needs tending now.  It needs time and attention and regular visits so I can figure out what my spiritual beliefs and needs are again. And besides, I miss my lovely garden by the sea with its benches and cottages and paths and waterfalls.  It's about time I go there again.

That sounds lovely. I'd love to know the name of the book if you remember--meditating is tough for me but the visualization of a garden, that resonates...

As Kim wishes for herself, I truly wish for her as well.
