We at Oh My Disney thoroughly believe in the power of setting your sights on a goal, following your hopes and dreams, and remembering that good things come to those who wish upon a star. If being the devout Disney fans we are has taught us anything, it’s that a wish is a powerful thing, especially when it comes from the heart. Proficient wishmaking is critical in order to garner an optimal result—problem is, most people just don’t know the importance of efficiency and procedure when making a wish! With our easy “Ultimate Guide to Wishmaking,” you too can make your dreams come true in just six simple steps:
Step One: The Acquisition of a Wishing Star
First, you need to get yourself a wishing star. We recommend a bright and sparkly one. Our advice is to simply look up at the sky in a northerly direction, approximately 434 light years away. For our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, you’re going to want to shift a litttttleeee bit closer to the equator. If that’s not feasible (and trust us, we understand) then any shooting star or bright celestial object will do. Heck, we’re not even above finding a wishing well.
Step One A: Dandelions are a Good Star Substitute
Step One B: And Ocean Rocks
Step One C: And Genies
Step Two: Introspection and Reflection
Next, you need to spend some time meditating. Think really hard about your hopes and dreams. You only get one chance to make a wish so it better be well worth it. Really ponder your very existence. Envision your future. Erase all doubt. This is a blue sky brainstorm here. Nothing is off limits.
Step Three: The Lead-Up
Here’s the part where things get serious. First, you’re going to need all of your concentration, so turn off your TV and music, put that cell phone on airplane mode, and don’t you even think about snapping this. You’re going to need to get comfortable, so if you’ve been saving a pair of pajamas for an extra cozy night, now is the time to pull them out.
Step Four: Positioning
Situate yourself so that you are facing the sky (or wishing well, or what have you), and tilt your gaze approximately. Furrow your brow if you must, just ensure that your eyes have locked onto that gloriously bright star.
Step Five: WISH WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. This is the moment we’ve been frantically preparing for over the last four paragraphs! Fold your hands if you must, visualize your hopes and dreams, and wish upon that star with all you’ve got! Keep your concentration and don’t even think about letting up—you’ve come so far!
Step Six: Take Action
Now that you have a vision, it’s time to do something about it! Goals are nothing without action. Get out there and seize the day—you’re almost there!
As Jiminy Crickett so eloquently put it, “When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.” So now we ask you, dearest readers, what will you do today to make your dreams a reality?
