One of my favorite movies that I used to watch with our children and now watch with my grandchildren is Never Ending Story. The film is about a little boy, Sebastian, with a vivid imagination who loves to read. He is often admonished to “get his head out of the clouds.” One day he is given a special book with a magnificent story about the quirky and beautiful Kingdom of Fantasia. As Sebastian reads he gradually becomes part of the story.Sebastian is carried along in the story as “The Nothing” gobbles up the kingdom. He follows along as the young hero Arturo tries to save the kingdom but alas, Arturo succumbs to “The Nothing” as well. In one of the final scenes, there is nothing left to the kingdom but the young princess of Fantasia and a single grain of sand. The princess tells Sebastian that he holds the key to bringing the kingdom back. All he has to do is make a wish. “How many wishes do I get?” asks Sebastian. “As many as you want,” replies the Princess.
I think of that line often when I am struggling to become the creator of my own life. Often I feel that I need to limit what I wish for; that I should focus on only one thing at a time; that the Universe will grant me only one wish. I can hear Sebastian’s voice asking the question “How many wishes do I get?” and especially the Princess’ reply, “As many as you want.”
Where along the way did I learn to believe that life is limited, that we only are allowed so many wishes; perhaps the Genie in the Bottle story where you only get three wishes? Maybe it was the parents who always said “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” or the teacher who said “You’re not cut out for that.” As a child, I remember dreaming and fantasizing what my life would be like; it seems like millions of years ago. To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I dreamed of all the things I wanted, things I wanted to do and see, things I wanted to have in my life. When did I learn to limit myself? Remember the movie, The Bucket List?
We live in a limitless universe, and all that we want is available to us, as long as we believe that it can be ours. Why is it so hard for us to believe that health, abundance, and love belong to us all?
I encourage you to remember to dream again. To dream big and large, to make as many wishes as you like. Make the list long and bold and magnificent. Write your wishes and affirmations down and repeat them everyday. Create the world that you dream of.
This excerpt from Notes from the Universe by Michael Dooley says it all:
It’s me the Universe.
I’ve got good news and bad news.
The good news is that you’ve passed the audition!
Yee-Haa! You’ve earned your wings! You’re a certified, bona fide Being of Light, capable of transcending all fears and manifesting all dreams.
From here on out, you have but to dwell upon what you want, and I must bring it forth.
The bad news is this message was supposed to reach you eons and eons ago.
It is our wish for you that all your wishes come true in 2012
