When You Wish Upon a Star…

By: Janet Hall

Many forty plus year olds might recall sitting in front of their TV every Sunday night around 7 PM watching Disney and one of the first Disney songs they might recall is “When You Wish Upon a Star,” sung by the character ‘Jimmy Cricket’ in Pinocchio, a wooden puppet that wanted to become human.

Some of the song lyrics are:

“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do”

In many places in the world people wish on a star reciting the nursery rhyme:

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.

Many of us make a wish before we blow out the candles on a birthday cake, when we see a shooting star, when we toss a coin into a wishing well, when we blow a ladybug off our hand, or blow a dandelion “clock” and we even make wishes when breaking a wishbone from a turkey or chicken breast.

Are these wishes really thought out and detailed enough for the wish to come true? Does it matter?

Some say yes and some say no.

There seems to be a small debate on wishes, intentions, desires and dreams and how to make them come true or to you. Many believe, such as on the movie “What the Bleep do We Know” or the book “Ask and It Is Given, that once you have a thought - a wish or desire - it sends the vibration out to the Universe to find a match and make the thought (wish, desire, belief, intention, etc) come back to you in real life. It really comes to pass. Others believe intentions (wish, desire, belief, intention, etc) need to be worked on, creating affirmations, saying them, and working towards them. I think they can be both correct.

When you wish upon a star, or any of the above, – see the wish happening, smell it, taste it, walk in it. Believe it with all your heart, without any doubt, you can achieve, no matter who or where you are your dreams can come true.

I've had the honor of seeing Robert Allan, investment advisor and author of The One Minute Millionaire, present on stage twice. On one occasion he had the audience go through a "seeing" exercise.

First we had to write down something we wanted in our life and date it. Next we had to get detailed about what that wish would look like, feel like, smell like. For instance, if you wanted a big house on a hill, a personal chef, etc. What would your house look like: the shape/style, color, and even the driveway up to your house. Upon entering what type of flooring would you step onto, what would you smell, hear, what colors and textures would you see, where would you put your keys and what room would you go to? Every detail - see it - believe it.

When you add the ‘seeing’ to your wish, as if it has already started to come to you or as if it has happened already, your wish has more 'weight' and becomes stronger.

Throughout the world there are many people that help make wishes come true for others, such as:

  • Walt Disney brought us fun, fantasy, hopes, and dreams through his stories, characters, theme parks and now cruise ships.
  • Oprah Winfrey helps build and rebuild communities through her Angel Network and her own generous donations and surprises.
  • ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, along with the design team and sponsors rebuild family’s lives and touch whole communities.
  • Mother Theresa created Missionaries of Charity, whose mission was to care for (in her own words) "the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone."

The common thread - the common theme - is making wishes and dreams come true, building character, bringing communities together and most importantly bringing awareness to us all that no matter whom you are, or where you are, in life or the world, with a strong intention your dreams can come true. It can seem and is magical to some, including myself.
