Three wishes? MMMM!!! What would I do, I could End World Hunger, Create a Pagan Utopia, here on Earth. But I don't feel so enlightened today so I'm going to dish out my wrath and try to be a little origional.

1. Turn all politicians instantly into Lab mice. See hew they like to be experimented on and social engineered.

2. I want the kind of magick seen in Movies, I could then travel the world doing good, That's what I'd use it for Honest!!!

3. All those who try to push their religious beleifs on others, and harm others with their thoughts, words and deeds would be turned into Dung Beetles, a creature used to being in the Crap.

My Three Wishes Jan 29th. at 1:57:51 pm UTC

Flame (Hartford, Connecticut) Age: 40 - Email

What a nice question! My first wish would be selfish:

1. Abundant good health and prosperity until my passing at a respectable old age!

My second and third wishes would be more universal:

2. Appreciation and tolerance--if not acceptance--by human beings of other human beings' differences and viewpoints (spiritual, political, and otherwise).

3. Love for all creatures--animal, vegetable, mineral, spiritual--and gratitude when they are asked to give their life energy in service to another life energy as nourishment, protection, shelter, etc.

A happy and blessed Imbolc to all!


Where's My Fairy Goddess Mother? Jan 29th. at 2:39:58 pm UTC

Eryn Aine (College Park , MD) Age: 20 - Email

I was told a long time ago to phrase what you wish for very carefully, because the results of an
ill thought out wish can bring devestation.

so here are my happy-peace-mongering whishes. (trite? yes. Genuine? yes.)

1) world peace without destruction of humanity, culture, or the earth.
2)Health and prosperity for all nations and peoples, especially those people i hold dear.
3)and my last wish would be for understanding and love for all people.

Maybe Some Tolerance In The World... Jan 29th. at 2:47:05 pm UTC

Kathryn (NS) Age: 14 - Email

If I was lucky enough to have three wishes, they would be the following:

1) That those around me and all over the world would be openminded to
new ideas, opionions and thoughts. Before forming decisions and
opionions, they would look into the matter, and not base it upon
hollywood garbage.

2) I of course would wish that there was an end to world hunger, poverty
and war; all the typical wishes I believe need to be taken care of,
but right now, I would be elated if all child molesters and animal
abusers would crawl into a dark, damp hole and sit there 'til they
learned their lessons.

3) This last one is a bit more personal. I wish I had the confidence to
"come out of the broom closet" about my growing interest in Wicca and
Paganism. I hope to deal with the matter soon, I just hope my parents
will follow wish #1
