– Louise Hay
And every word we speak is a prayer. This begs the question: are you praying for what you really want or something you don’t?
I love the wise expression, “Worrying is praying for what you don’t want to have happen.” A good reason to give up on worrying, eh?
Our thoughts and our words — these are two things that we have some control over. But in order to choose what we think and say, we first must become aware of our thoughts. Then we must learn to pause while we discern where to place our attention or what to speak out loud.
I know, this is easier said than done sometimes. This is where a meditation practice really helps. Meditating trains your mind to not only notice all the thoughts running around in your head, but also to intentionally cancel or neutralize the ones that are counterproductive to what’s best for you.
It’s time to focus your attention on what you want.
Inertia has been normalized to such an extent during these pandemic years that we so often have become numb to our real wants and needs and are afraid to dream big. Direct your energy intentionally and do your best to manage the jungle of thoughts that might be getting in the way.
One of my personal daily Goddess practices is to pull a morning oracle card and then sit down to journal. Lately, I’ve been pulling from the new deck I recently designed — The Goddess Inspired Life Oracle. This fresh set of oracle cards gives me new ideas and insights to reflect on, while providing a healthy focus that stays with me throughout my day.
We have to make time for this kind of reflection and keep asking ourselves the questions that will lead us to our happiest moments.
Where we place our energy is a choice, and it’s a powerful choice indeed.
Line up your thinking with your true heart’s desires and see what happens next. We’re moving through springtime and heading toward the fullness of summer soon, so asking yourself what you really want is important.
Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, moves into Taurus today. This energy is great for bringing in more money and prosperity, and as Taurus is ruled by Venus, the current energy amplifies love, pleasure and beauty. All receive an extra oomph this week.
Sending you a big whoosh of Goddess Love,
P.S. You can purchase your own oracle deck to use over and over again. It’s available now at gaydering.com in the Goddess Beautique!
Right on and beautifully expressed, Gay. I'm still learning to Ask…..so important!
Thanks for the reminder, and Happy Jupiter in Taurus!
