How To Manifest The Impossible

The poet laureate Robert Southey, when he wasn’t quilling epic poems about Joan of Arc, Robespierre or Nelson, said this: “To a resolute mind, wishing to do is the first step toward doing. But if we do not wish to do a thing it becomes impossible.” Isn't that fantastic?

Our seeing with eyes that can see the impossible might just be the step of faith needed to begin the journey towards its manifestation. There are big wishes hidden behind our jaded inner editors that have learned over the years that so many things are impossible.

Firstly, any journey needs a destination. Secondly, it is better to be going for the right destination, however big or impossible it may seem; you want what you want whether you think you can get to it or not. Thirdly, be careful! The biggest wishes are hiding behind all sorts of fears, doubts and comfort zone issues.

Here are my 10 favourite wishing questions which start off easy and get progressively more challenging.

  • Every New Year’s I resolve to . . .
  • I would be absolutely fantastic at . . .
  • Nobody knows I’m . . .
  • One thing everyone’s tried but me is . . .
  • If I wasn’t scared I would . . .
  • My dream is to . . .
  • If I could change one thing in my life it would be . . .
  • I really wish I would no longer . . .
  • If I won the big one I would . . .
  • If success were guaranteed I would . . .

You can leave your answers to any of these questions below or even suggest one of your own.

Water Vole - focussing on what is essential

It was only whilst researching this blog that I discovered that we have three different species of Vole : Water Vole, Field Vole and Bank Vole. The first of these will be my focus, and is, in fact, the most rare. This poor lass is the one most commonly mistaken for a Rat (somewhat unhelpfully Kenneth Grahame’s “Ratty” in The Wind in the Willows is actually a Water Vole) because both species tend to live near water courses. An employee of Severn Trent Water told me that Rats do not actually like getting wet, however, so if you see a swimming Rat you are almost certainly looking at a Vole. More ...

Common Frog - rediscovering familiar paths

Leaping suddenly from cover when you least expect him, he can still be hard to spot even when you know he is there. His skin colour varies hugely: green, brown, yellow, orange, black, red or cream. During the mating season he may have a bluish throat, whilst his mate could have a pinkish blush to her skin. His natural camouflage is enhanced by seemingly random dark patches and dark bars on his legs. He needs it, being the prey of foxes, birds of prey, snakes, large predatory fish and domestic cats. More ...
