I’m a little late on this post ~ It would have been fitting if I’d written this before the Adirondack Balloon Festival ~ but it’s still helpful information.
The Chinese believe that there’s a great Dragon in the Sky that will help you to realize your dreams.
But first you must send those wishes out in a specific way. Take a Red, Yellow, White, Pink or Lavender colored helium-filled balloon and tie it with 9, 18 or 27 inches of Red Ribbon. Write your wish on the balloon with a New black felt-tip pen that you buy especially for this occasion. Only one wish per balloon. Be specific and concise when you write out your wish. Then on a slightly windy day when the sun is not too bright, release the balloon into the sky ~ continue to watch it as it flies higher until it slowly vanishes from sight. As the balloon disappears ~ visualize your wishes being fulfilled. Then, after you can no longer see your balloon on the horizon, know that the Sky Dragon has swallowed it and will now begin to actualize this wish for you. Of course, feel free to release as many balloons as you WISH ~ just one wish per balloon.
