I recently had this idea that I would throw a penny into every wishing well and fountain that I came across at the Disneyland Resort. However, I didn’t want to just throw in pennies — I needed wishes to go with them! Since I am working my way through the plan outlined in Manifesting Matisse, it seemed appropriate to state one of my affirmations each time I threw in a penny. (After all, affirming is better than wishing, right?) So, it became a challenge to find all the wishing wells (Disneyland has two: one near Sleeping Beauty’s castle, and the other at Minnie’s house) and the fountains. I even threw pennies into some of the waterfalls (such as the one behind the Dumbo ride), but decided against large bodies of water.
So, after going through both parks, I also managed to go through the pocketful of pennies I brought with me. And wouldn’t you know it, I reach into my purse a few days later and find a bunch of pennies in the pocket where I keep my cell phone! I never put change in there, so I have to believe my finding these stray pennies is another synchronicity. Isn’t life wonderful?
