“Once she received the great Carrot Colored Cloak, she rarely took it off. She believed that the cloak itself was the symbol of her talent.”
The fable of Carrot Colored Cloak concerns a young
woman, Shannon, who dearly wants to be an actress playing many great roles. She is quite committed to her dream, missing out on the amenities enjoyed by friends with less demanding careers in service of her long run goal.
But the carrot colored cloak is as much of a “player” in the story as is Shannon herself. It symbolizes her dream and reminds her of her desires, and it serves as her perceived source of power.
For Shannon, her dream is fueled and given physical form by the Carrot Colored cloak. “Once she received the great Carrot Colored Cloak, she rarely took it off. She believed that the cloak itself was the symbol of her talent.”
What a wonderful concept: to use a physical object as a tangible specification of your dream! and to invest it with the magical powers that enhance the chance of getting what you want.
How cool is that? You get to carry around an object that importantly and powerfully reminds you of your focus, making your dream more real for you. You get to increase your confidence, and you get to make your life a little more magical and fun you get to relive the part of your childhood where your favorite toy meant the entire world to you.
As a side note, because Carrot is in the orange family of the color wisdom cards, there are the associations of carrot/orange with the creativity,enthusiasm, vitality and fun that often get associated with the color orange.
But regardless of the color the size the expense or the visibility of the object, what “objects” mean something to you? Might it be worth taking Shannon’s experiment to the real world? Does carrying around a physical and tangible reminder of your dream help you take more action leading to manifestation does it bring you magical powers? Does it make life just plain more fun?
Check it out and see what you think.
Just maybe, as it did for a mythical actress named Shannon, your version of a carrot colored cloak can enliven and deepen the magic of your dreams as well.
