If a magic genie appears and bestows you with one wish what would that wish be?

Would you wish for wealth, power, fame, health, love, or peace?

Would you make a wish to improve someone else’s life?

When asked this question as a kid I would cleverly answer “I would wish for one hundred more wishes.” That answer is not allowed.

Here are some of the top answers for genie wishes:

  • Success
  • Fame
  • Enlightenment
  • Love
  • Mind reading abilities
  • Endless wealth
  • Teleportation skills
  • An end to the virus
  • To be better looking
  • To have everyone fall in love with me
  • Power to blend in with the shadows
  • To not live in fear
  • To end anxiety and depression
  • Immortality
  • World peace
  • To eat what ever I want without gaining weight
  • The ultimate singing voice
  • To make a living as a writer (I threw that one in)

Genie Wishes

Arabian Nights introduced us to the mysterious lamps and powerful genies. This idea became popular and combined with other fables such as Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp and The Ludicrous Wishes.

Powerful Wish Spells

The best time to make a wish come true is right before you fall asleep when your mind is most relaxed and clear. This state is known as hypnagogia.

Difference Between Genie Wishes And Wish Spells

A genie wish is very similar to a powerful wish spell. However, there is a huge difference. Genies often take the words of the person making the wish literally. This fulfillment can often turn dangerously creative and bizarre.

While we may not believe in genies and wishes anymore, we can remember the wonderful feelings we had as a child when we believed all things were possible.

Taking time to reflect upon on our deepest wishes and desires keeps us on track. We hold on to what is truly important to us.

What Is Your Wish?

A magic genie grants you one wish? What will it be?

Be careful what you wish for!

You just never know!
