Yeah, I did! I feel like the wishing well has it's own magical power that even though I know wishes naturally don't come true, I still throw a coin on the well and made impossible wishes... Have you ever made a wish on a wishing well, fellow mylotters?

Hi dear, I have not done it and didn't get a chance for the same. I think here in my area of living, there is no such things around and I have not heard of it. Instead of this, people have a common faith that if we go to a new worship place like church, temple for the first time, our first 3 wishes will come through. But practically, I don't know how effective it is or it is just a faith and nothing other than that?? Regards, Thank-s

Hello thanks1961! That's okay if there is no wishing well, it is more important to have faith also, believing that your wishes and hopes will come true is much better! :-)

Hi dear, Yes, it is somewhat related to faith. But I am losing faith on these days. Regards, Thank-s

I did make a wish on the wishing well. Wishes are sometimes good in the sense that it may be some force in you who wanted to obtain something, it could sometimes serve as the stimulant for you to act on something to happen. I did wish, and it came true, I don't believe though it's because of the wishing well per se, I believe God blessed me to have it. It's more of a stimulant of the mind to command our body to act upon a course towards the realization of something that we wanted to have or achieve. So next time you wish, don't dwell too much on wishing, work more on ACTING on it. And you'd pretty much see good results. Then thank and bless God for letting it happen. God bless you frenzylady!

I couldn't agree more with you, chuyins123. Yes if you really want something, you should go for it and keep working on it, in the end, it is very rewarding indeed!

I did wish on a wishing well inside a mall more than once because I've been to the same mall everytime I visit the city. There are many coins thrown in by mallers and the people say that it's for a good cause because the management gets all the coins after sometime and give it to charity. I still make a wish though but more on other people's lives like to those getting the charity. But I still would want to wish on a wishing well that's really a wishing well like what I have seen in pictures. There's nothing like it here.

Hello frenzlady, I haven't made a wish to a wishing well and will never try it. I don't believe wishing wells can make your wish come true, it doesn't have any basis whether scientifically or spiritually. I wish only to God when I'm praying and make some actions to make it come true.
