Certain songs from childhood become a part our dreams, our hopes, and our wishes. Last week, out of the blue, I found myself searching for Jiminy Cricket singing When You Wish Upon A Star. I found a gentle stirring in my heart, a healing from those long forgotten words. An angel thought suggested a blog, but I didn't pay much attention.
Yesterday morning, with broom in hand, sweeping the front steps, a little brown cricket suddenly hopped out of the flowerbed. He landed near me and seemed to wait until I was sure that he was a cricket and not a grasshopper. It had been years since a cricket crossed my path.
Crickets have lots of folklore and myth mostly about the power of belief and stirring the intuition.
The male cricket sings by rubbing its wing bases together. The song of the cricket is of good cheer, especially in relationships. Our believing is about to be rewarded. Cricket heralds an awakening of sensitivities and the finding of light within the dark. Trust your own intuition, as it is more accurate than you may believe.
Here's the link if you'd like to hear Jiminy.
When You Wish Upon A Star
Keep on believing and never give up..."like a bolt out of the blue, faith steps in to see you through."
