Wishcasting Wednesday

What Do You Wish To Nurture?

Because I'm located on the west coast, I'm often one of the last to post on any given Wednesday for Wednesday Wishcasting. And I often sit and read and offer up wishes on everyone else's posts before actually writing mine. But I did something different today. I did not want to be influenced by any other's wishes. I wanted to contemplate the question and write my own wish first. I guess I wanted to take it a bit more seriously than usual.

This week, Jamie asks, "What do you wish to nurture?" I wish to nurture my inner yogi. I love yoga, and I love some of the associated/similar habits and practices, like meditation. I just don't manage very often to actually stop everything else I'm doing and spend my time practicing. I know the benefits of yoga and meditation - I've experienced them!

Lately, I've had too frequent periods where I almost can't draw in a deep breath, or my breath catches, and I have to consciously make myself breathe slowly and deeply. And there have been too many days where I have had to stop and tell myself to lower my shoulders because they've been hunched up around my ears for too long. And I know how to fix it, but . . .

So I implore you, Universe, I come to you on bended knee (or maybe two bended knees in child's pose) I wish to nurture my inner yogi. Namaste!


  1. Namaste' gentle Janet...

    I understand. As a black belt in Aikido I,too understand how to return my focus back to my center and drop my breathing into correct rhythm, but still, like you, I often find my shoulders trying to suffocate my ears, and my breathing is shallow and harsh.

    Knowing better and doing better are two different skill sets. Blending the knowledge into the consistent awareness? AH! Now that is the spot where the magick of living resides.

    And so for you, because I adore your wish and can relate to it so much...As Janet wishes for herself, so I lovingly and with intention, wish for this yogi, also.

    Enjoy connecting with your center and your breath once again!

  2. As Yogi Janet wishes for herself, so I wish for her as well.

    Get ready to drop those shoulders, because these wishes are powerful magic!

  4. Yeah Janet~! Refill that inner well honey! I love that you did this for yourself and I know what a challenge it is in today's world.

  6. As Janet the Yogi wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. Namaste, sweet Janet.

  7. Indeed, Namaste! I took up yoga only a few months ago, but already I find myself more centrered than I've ever been. But, equally, I'm SO much more aware of how many times I day I seem to stop breathing. Madness! To have to remind yourself to breathe! but when you do the world re-centres and a little bit of peace flees in to your heart.
