That calm, centre-point within each of us is what we call our Zenter. It’s our internal compass. And it’s either strengthened or weakened by our daily practices – our habits. The 9 happy habits are the practices that work together like spokes in a wheel to strengthen our Zenter. One of these happy habits is the practice of Making Wishes.

How Making Wishes Works
Kids process the world around them through fantasy and play. Using their imaginations helps them relax, problem solve, heal and grow. When they have dreams and feel hopeful, kids are developing their brains' circuitry for optimism. According to developmental research, optimism builds their resilience and helps them persevere through challenges.
Logic will get you from A to B
Imagination will take you everywhere
- Albert Einstein
Encouraging kids to use their imaginations and have dreams also connects them to what they want. Coupling their imaginations with strong feelings of hope creates the magnetism to draw their dreams to them. This is how the Power of Creation works, it’s the Law of Attraction in action.
Imagination is the beginning of creation
You imagine what your desire
You will what you imagine
And at last you create what you will
- George Bernard Shaw
