WOTC Extra – A simple and powerful affirmation

 A simple and powerful affirmation

Every morning for at least one week, before you begin the activities in your day, take one minute to stand still in front of a mirror.

Take three deep, slow breaths, taking the air to the bottom of your lungs as you do so. Breathe in through your nose pushing your stomach out, and out through your mouth, pulling your stomach in. Look yourself straight in the eyes and say out loud:

“I am loved. All my needs are met. Everything is as it should be. Challenges I do not understand now I will in due course. I start this day with love in my heart for all creation. I love my family, my friends and my community. I love myself. I am a beautiful living aspect of the Divine. So be it.”

Keep at it and see how you feel after one week.

Let’s Talk Witch – The Power of Meditation and Prayer

The Power of Meditation and Prayer

The power of meditation and prayer Meditation takes many forms. It can loosely be described as a method of stilling the mind in order to experience inner peace or to connect with inner or higher guidance. Meditation frequently involves inner reflection but it can also be used to focus healing energies for self and others. It can be used to alter consciousness and access other realities. There are many schools of meditation or yoga and it is not difficult to find and learn a technique that suits your personality or to develop your own personal method of meditating. Any activity that stills the constant chatter of the busy mind can be described as meditation. Dance, cycling, knitting, and gardening may all be used as meditation to still the mind.

When people meditate for a specific purpose it is often in a still, quiet place and it usually involves standing, sitting or lying, with spine straight, in a comfortable position and following a set routine which will close down the conscious mind. Many people grossly underestimate the power of individual and particularly group meditations to affect the world around us. When a group of people sit together with a clear group focus and shift their consciousness as one, then it is possible to work miracles.

Prayer is a powerful way of clarifying and expressing your concerns directly to your own Higher Self, the Creator or the Oneness you are. It is best done with a little preparation in a special place that is still, beautiful and free of distractions. This can be a room or part of a room, or if you can access it, a private place in nature. You do not need to go to church to pray, nor do you need an intermediary. It is your birthright to talk to the Divine or the Oneness, however you perceive Her/Him, in the way that you feel most comfortable.

Affirmations spoken out loud, alone or in groups are one of the most powerful tools for personal transformation available to humans. Affirmations work by clearly and positively stating your intentions to both the superconscious and your own subconscious. The spoken word has the power to create its intention and when made repeatedly and with clear intent, affirmations will directly affect the reality of the person making them.

Both your own subconscious and the Universe will respond to repeated affirmations whether they be positive or negative. Consider the person who repeatedly tells themselves and others, “I am useless, I will never amount to anything, nothing ever goes right for me.” These statements often repeated become a self fulfilling prophecy. How can anyone else believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself?

As the Universe exists to serve us, it will respond automatically to our stated beliefs. Consider the person who states out loud, “What a magnificent day! I feel great! Everything is going splendidly!” How much easier it is for us to support and encourage someone in this frame of mind, how much easier it is for them to believe in themselves. Of course the Universe and their own subconscious respond accordingly.

If we hold images of perfection, health, abundance, peace and harmony in our minds and express them through our words, then they are registered in the superconscious mind as already existing and will come into our lives on this plane. This is the key to creating your own reality – a harmonious life full of abundance, joy and love.

Never underestimate the power of the spoken word! Affirmation combined with meditation and prayer create a mighty trinity. If practised in the ways outlined in this book they will create positive change in your life and the lives of your loved ones, that will assist your own evolution and planetary healing.

Personality Profile:

The Gemini Sun is a chameleon, which makes their personality hard to describe since it changes all the time. Those born under the sign of the “Twins” have at least two personalities, but often many more. Their insatiable curiosity keeps them learning new things, and this makes many of them like walking encyclopedias of knowledge.

You might hear the laughter of Gemini Suns before you see them, since they’re always finding something absurd to giggle over. They’re great wits and their interest in people often puts them in the role of social ice breaker.

Those with Sun in Gemini might be hard to pin down, but if you accept this shape-shifting quality, they’re excellent friends. This can even be true in a relationship, where they need an intellectual rapport with their mate. The ideal companions for them are those that think at their same speed of light, and don’t tie them up in one dull topic.

They need a certain kind of space to grow, and those close to them don’t try to hold on too tightly. The knows that the world is vast and full of endless fascinations to explore. If the door is open in a relationship for them to come and go at will, they’ll prove their own brand of loyalty over time.

The Gemini needs to be able to reinvent themselves many times and to follow the threads of inspiration wherever they lead. This can make them seem restless and inconsistent – another name for it is flaky. They’re always called the dilettante of the Zodiac because they’ll try anything once, and usually do! But once the Gemini finds a subject through that is worthy of that incredible kaleidoscopic mind, a deeper mastery can be sought and achieved.

The Gemini is a charmer and a clown. And often they wear a silly grin, as if they get the cosmic joke that all is well and it’s okay to sample everything from the smorgasbord of life.

Oh, one important thing I forgot…..

I meant to mention it at the first but forgot. In case you find the site hard to load or slow to load, I requested WordPress to clean out our Spam category in the back. Most of the time when they are cleaning and I am posting, the site does slow down. I don’t know what time they will show up but you and I will both know it when they do. So, please have patience, it won’t take but a few minutes for them to clean it out. Just keep refreshing and eventually, you won’t have to because they will be through working and things will be back to normal (hmm, that normal thing again).

 

Just wanted to let you know before, I had people complaining about the site loading slow. Now back to work!

Wishing All My Dear Loved Ones, A Very Happy & Blessed Tuesday!

Good Morning Images
Good morning, my sweets! How are you doing today? I hope great. My morning has started out with the damn phone ringing off the wall. And you know I wonder why I actually pay the phone bill (still scratching my head over that one, lol). But life goes on and the phone continues to ring, oh, brother!

 

As we start this new day together, I would like to leave you with an old Irish blessing. Enjoy, my precious ones!

 

Always remember to forget

The things that made you sad.

But never forget to remember

The things that made you glad.

 

Always remember to forget

The friends that proved untrue.

But never forget to remember

Those that have stuck by you.

 

Always remember to forget

The troubles that passed away.

But never forget to remember

The blessings that come each day.

May you have many a blessing to follow you all your life long,

May the Goddess Bless You & Keep You,

Love,

Lady of the Abyss
