‘Be careful what you wish for, it might come true’
have you ever heard these words before? Or ‘thoughts become things’?
“The dream that you wish, will come true” – Disney
There’s a lot out there to say “seek and you shall receive” – The Bible
But experiencing something first hand is better than any written word isn’t it?
As a Director of a registered UK limited company, I have to do tax returns, which are basically files to show what money came into my business and what money came out of it, in any given year.
I have needed to find an accountant to assist me with something more technical for a long while now and it was starting to bother me, because it was one of those things I kept putting to 1 side, burying my head in the sand, hoping it would go away type job, sound familiar?
I bought some wellbeing magazines the other day, a type of magazine i’ve never actually bought before might I add.. However, I am trying to keep my mind busy during lockdown and reading is something I enjoy and I wanted something different to a book.
I was doing one of the exercises in the magazine. It was about attracting something into your life that you want within the next week. I was going to brush it off, because as I asked myself half heartedly ‘what do you want’? and although I could answer with so many things, can’t we all? There wasn’t actually 1 poignant thing, standing out that I really wanted, but I found myself staying on the same page and so, I asked myself again, this time with more conviction, but also changing a word; “what do you really need”? As I thought longer and harder about it, “an accountant” came into my mind, this was perfect, something I really do need and within the next week would be great.
The idea is, once you ‘seek’ you let it go and I forgot about the exercise, I carried on reading through the magazine and I got to the end of the magazine where it’s full of ad’s, I would normally flick straight past these pages, don’t you? This time, I read through every single one and every single ad, but 1, was for some sort of holistic healing; reiki, psychic, angel healing and all sorts, but 1 ad struck me, an advertisement for an accountancy company, the lady who is also a psychic. See, I didn’t want just any old stuffy accountant, working from a plush office in central London, who expenses their posh coffees, I wanted one who actually has an interest in the things I have an interest in, so that we can resonate with one another.
3 pages of ads, only 1 differed and it’s for an accountancy, what are the odds?
The moral of the story is; ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get’, it’s one of my greatest traits as a human, as a woman, as an Aries, as a 90’s chick, as me. I don’t get het up on what people may thing of me if I ask a dumb question, no question is a stupid question in my eyes.
Also remembering, asking, or seeking/ wishing or thinking, it’s more than just what you want/need, but it’s about being aware of whether this want/need serves you well. Like I mentioned a quote at the beginning ‘thoughts become things’ be aware of how you talk to yourself. If you like reading and do fancy a good book, I recommend; ‘what to say when you talk to yourself’
