I did a short video about breathing that you might like. I can’t figure out how to get the video thumbnail into the blog excerpt, so please click on the post title to go to the full post and see the video.
I say this prayer when lighting candles, when I am being attacked hard, before I go to sleep...any time I need protection. It's very effective and even more so when two of you pray together!
"In this fateful hour,
I place Mother Earth with all her power,
And the Sun with his brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightening with its rapid wrath,
And the winds with their swiftness along their path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the earth with its starkness.
All these I place,
With the Universe's almighty help and grace,
Between myself and the powers of darkness!"
- adapted from "A Swiftly Tilting Planet" by Madeleine L'Engle
Our Deepest Fear
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. "
