It’s not often I ask for specific things — make a wish and blow out the candles usually yields a simple request for a good and healthy year.
Sometimes, I’ll ask for a little guidance — never a lot, just a little. In the point-me-in-the-right-direction-I’ll-take-it-from-there kind of way.
“What do you want to know?” the psychic always asks before she begins. But I never really have questions, I just want hints. Hints about what comes next maybe or something I haven’t considered.
Is that wishful thinking?
“Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
— Matthew 7.7 (KJV)
I just never know what to ask or what I seek specifically and in detail, although I know some people who do.
Last week, in anticipation of candle blowing and wishes making, I sat with a deck of angel cards — a gift from a like-minded friend. Quietly I asked what I needed to know, on what I should focus my intentions. Their reply?
Simple requests. A little direction. Hints whispered. Angel wishes.
