Each week I write these Visions of Possibility and Anticipation to practice asking for what I want. And to get clarity on what that really is, even when asking feels conflicted.

I always get useful information about my relationship with various aspects of the ask. Join in if you like!

Thing 1: More about transition.

Here’s what I want:

The Vicarage changed everything, as I knew it would.

Now it’s time for integration. And quiet processing. This is the voyage after the voyage.

The qualities inside of the want:

Presence. Grace. Trust. Congruence. Playfulness. Flow. Attentiveness. Quiet.

And the superpower of having a library whenever I need one.

Ways this might work:

Using silent retreat for everything.

I’m playing with…

Taking notes on the process for next time.

Thing 2: RALLY!

Here’s what I want:

This week is Rally (Rally!).

It is Rally #24, which is a lot of Rallies to have rallied/verb-ed.

And it’s been several months since the last Rally.

I want all the Rally superpowers to show up!

The qualities inside of the want:

Ease. Trust. Shelter. Hilarity. Play. Grounding. Spaciousness. Containment

The superpowers of Rally: Everything that happens at Rally is part of Rally. Nothing is wrong. Clews are everywhere. Proxies solve everything. Away Rio.

And the superpower of being the secret queen of the Humming Castle.

Ways this might work:

Well, you know. The fountain probably knows.

And the compass. I can use the compass.

I’m playing with…

Silent retreat.

Thing 3: A hot date with Incoming Me.

Here’s what I want:

Having just had two whole weeks to do nothing but sit with incoming me, it feels weird to have to schedule us-time.

I want us to PLAY.

The qualities inside of the want:

Sweetness. Excitement. Commitment. Delight. Wonder. Time.

And the superpower of following instincts unhesitatingly.

Ways this might work:

I don’t have to know this yet.

I’m playing with…

Finding out what would make this fun. It has to do with presence…

Thing 4: Related: the superpower of Joyful Presence.

Here’s what I want:

Either I make things fun through being present. Or I use fun to help myself be more present.

But this is the quality that I bring to things.

There is a version of me who knows how to do this, and I’m going to get to know her better.

It feels like getting ready for going out dancing. But my hot date is with me.

The qualities inside of the want:

Delight. Tingly anticipation. Willingness. Playfulness. Laughter. Curiosity. Presence.

And the superpower of secret smiles. Also the superpower of being TROUBLE. But in a good way.

Ways this might work:

I don’t have to know this yet.

I’m playing with…

Being clear about how I want to feel.

Noticings about the things I want this week…

It’s all about PLAY. Unsurprisingly. Which means: wear more costumes and let everything be a costume. I’m taking this to the Bat Cave!

Bonus wishes, please!

Some of these are secret agent code and some of them are things I’m silent retreat-ing on. Some are qualities that will help. And some are almost pre-wishes: tiny seeds for future processing.

  • Mini-epiphanies.
  • Letting the compass do what it needs to do.
  • Quiet companionship.
  • Bus passes.
  • Playmate playmate playmate.
  • Stones.
  • Clues
  • Treasure.
  • Rest.
  • Using the vault.
  • I hate to use the phrase “trust the process”, but oh man: trust the process.

I’m playing with…

Being at Stompopolis. Humming the hum.

Progress report on past Very Personal Ads.

Just to update you on what’s happened since last time.

Silent retreat for now…

Playing. Shelter for the comments.

What’s welcome: Your own wishes, gwishes, visions and personal ads, small or large. Updates on past ones if you like. Things sparked for your own process.

I’m receptive to warm wishes for the things I’m working on and playing with.

We ask for what we need, and we give each other space and spaciousness for the process.

This is a place of safety for creative play and exploration, with a very non-dogmatic approach. We don’t tell each other how to ask for things and we don’t give unsolicited advice. We play.

That’s it. Let’s throw a bunch of things in the pot!

As always, amnesty applies. Leave a wish here any time you want.
