When you wish upon a star.
Fairy tale or ancient knowledge?

Written by The Gentle Rebel
Shamanic yogi, martial artist, writer & speaker. 

Remember the song ‘When you wish upon a star” from Disney’s Pinocchio?

There’s a deep meaning behind this song regarding ancient knowledge about manifestation. – The truth, hidden in plain sight.

First, a quick break down of the first verse, then onto some finer details.

When you wish upon a star
(This refers to Sirius the brightest star with a blue tinge. This is noticeable in a few scenes and also when the ‘shining blue’ fairy visits Pinocchio)
Makes no difference who you are
(The law of attraction is the universal cosmic law, applicable to everyone)
Anything your heart desires
(When you manifest, you must believe it in your heart. The desire must be pure [from the heart chakra] not carnal desire [lower chakra] )
Will come to you
(Truly believe it in your heart and the universe will bring it to you)

Are you aware of the truths in this song? Pinocchio was written by Carlo Lorenzini – who was a master freemason.

There are many, many metaphysical aspects in the film that are overlooked.

Magnificent ancient knowledge for those with eyes to see.


One Love

    Only wish there was more. I resonate with this but would love it if you went deeper. What about other myths? I’d love to hear you interpretation on other stories.

      Thanks Roderick. Many, if not all myths and stories have some significance. It’s definitely something that will appear here more.
