Just like in a fairytale, a genie pops out of a bottle and you are instantly granted three wishes………..what would they be?

  • The rules: you can’t ask for more wishes, and you can’t ask anything for yourself.

 

May you experience and display kindness and compassion today.

  1. I wish for all humanity to see the colour of our skin is just the covering containing the beauty within our unique expressions of our human condition.

    I wish for all of us to know our magnificence.

    I wish for violence to end so that we can all embrace life without fearing there are arms that bear malice.

    • Louise, these are absolutely beautiful wishes! To give others the ability to see beyond our exterior differences, to know our true worth and end of violence…………..what a wonderful world this would be! Thank you so very much for taking time to share…….I hope today is being kind to you. 🙂

  2. I am sitting here trying to figure out what my three wishes would be. I did not think about wishing to end Covid-19. I am not thinking about wishing for world peace. I was thinking smaller.

    1) My mom started a food bank in the village she lives in. It is reliant on volunteers and donations. I would wish for the food bank to have funds always. As in a million dollar donation or a trust set up. Something like that. So when she is gone (not being morbid but I mean…..lol) there is no worry as to how it will continue.
    2) Good health for friends and family. I have several friends who suffer from chronic illness and I would love to be able to wish it away. Not the strength it gave them. I would never want to take away from that for the strength you show is amazing. But I would love to take away the pain.
    3) This wish sounds so horrid because it is as though I think that it will happen again but I do not. My wish is that those who commit acts of atrocities are not given front page news. They are not given the light while the victims are. Front Page. No politicians. No using it as a platform for anything. A celebration of who the victims were. Their lives. The lives that have been destroyed. That is what I believe needs to be in the forefront.

    It took me a bit to think out the wording on all three but those are the wishes I would wish for. 🙂

    • Jay-lyn……..these are such beautiful wishes! I love that you want to keep a food pantry open and allow the hard work of your mother and so many others to continue. I love that you care so much about your ill friends and family and you would grant them healing. I agree that those who commint acts of horror should not be “honored” and instead give them NO voice, NO advertising for all the terrible things they did. Thank you so very much for sharing, I enjoyed reading these and I hope all your wishes to come true.

  3. I’d ask that everything stays as it is, without it we are lost. It all forces us to look inward and find an unconditional love from the conditional that we make it down here. This very playground is our free will in action, and every step will ever guide us to that most beautiful and profound place. From within it, it is a mixing bowl of every emotion to us humans…but from without it looking in, it is the most profound creation I could ever imagine dear lady.
    Wait till you arrive at its destination, its beauty will leave you in awe 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

      • A new building for the public library in town, a modern, safe, protected from rain and staffed bike parking lot downtown for cyclists, low cost university and college fees for students, and free for adult students.

      • these are beautiful wishes…….I am also a HUGE fan of the public library system (and a former employee)……they are so important for the community. Bike lot, that is an awesome idea and I am sure would be greatly appreciated too. And a low colst university would be amazing. If it was free for adult students, I would go back! 🙂 Thanks for sharing these wondeful wishes………….

      • thank you so very much. I am very sensitive to this as I make mistakes ALL THE TIME and I hate it when people are rude! We are only human and we all make mistakes. I wasn’t going to point it out but I REALLY wanted to know what your other wishes would be and I am so glad I did……..I love yours! 🙂

    • yes, i am so blessed to be able to read so many responses from so many amazing people. I have not thought much about mine but off the top of my head it would be 1. world peace……..if there was peace we could at least end war……..what a beautiful start to a peaceful Earth. 2. everyone would be healed from all illnesses known and unknown……now we have a peaceful world and healthy people, we could accomplish so much…….and 3. a healthy planet………if people feel peace, live peace experience peace, are healthy and live in a healthy environment, we could accomplish so many things……….
      I hope you are doing well!

  4. I would wish for my son to have a happy and successful life. For my husband to experience a spiritual awakening, and for everyone on earth to be healed of all fear and judgment. Once all fear and judgment is gone, there would be no more hunger, poverty, war, and most illness would go away. People would live through their hearts.

    • thank you so very much for stopping by and joining in on the questions, I am so happy you are here. I love that your first 2 wishes are for your immediate family…….I am sure with a wonderful mother that you are, your son will grow up to be an amazing human being. The other two wishes……….I have prayed for your husband and for the world as a whole……..may the prayers be heard and answered in a mighty way!

      • Thanks. As much as because I’ve been through spiritual awakening, it would bring us a lot closer if my husband at least had an interest in spirituality, I know it’s nothing he’s interested in and realistically will never become interested in. That said, I very much appreciate your prayers!

  6. Ah, Wendi. I had such a hard time with this that it’s taken me all night to consider how to answer. When you study quantum physics, you realized that everything that happens, has a reason. Contrast is necessary for the Universe to move forward. When we see what we don’t want, we get a clearer vision of what we do want and can work at manifesting it for ourselves. We do not have the right to change anyone else’s path. I would very much like to see more people escape the old paradigms and understand what we really are. When we get there, more of the good will come into existence. I’d very much like to see more experience the emotions of what they do to others, animals included. Everything we do affects everything else. We are not just individuals, we are a collective consciousness. It’s gone off the rails lately to wake us up. We have been sleeping in apathy. I’ve learned the hard way that you can’t always help someone in a difficult situation. It’s interfering with their path through life. They must find their own way unless they ask you how they get to the next step. They get the choice then to take it or not. I wish you better health and more happiness in your heart. Have a lovely day, Wendi.

    • wow! first let me express my deepest thanks and humbling response that you took so much time to think about this question in order to gather your response. I have to admit, when I wrote this question, I had NO idea people would reflect so deeply and I am just blown away.
      Your response is absolutely beautiful and I LOVE, love, love that you referenced quantum physics 🙂 You are absolutely spot on that everything we do affects other people and I also wish more people could see this…….your comments are awesome and I again, send my deepest thanks for allowing me to get another peak into your beautiful mind. 🙂

  8. Genie, I wish, hearts would look to God; to know true hope. I wish, hearts would trust God; let His love, plan their every tomorrow. I wish, that when every heart is burning; God’s love would be, what sets their hearts ablaze! Three wishes, but one desire… His love!

  9. 1. I would wish that we could have a definite answer as to what happens after we die.
    2. I would wish that not everyone was equal but there wouldn’t be super rich and then people who starve. A sort of happy medium.
    3. I would wish hatred for others for no good reason disappeared and everyone helped everyone else.

  12. if my wishes were for the world.. I would wish they learnt to unify and love.. and find grace and acceptance in tolerance and forgiveness of each other… This way All would treat each other with respect with less suffering, and I would hope harmony would follow.

    For me, it would be love, more love and even more love that ALL could share as they discovered their open hearts.. 💖🙏💖
