Spinning Your Gold: Words that Open Hearts and Inspire Actions
“Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.” -Soren Kierkegaard
After months of COVID-19 self-quarantine and days of civil unrest, do you find that:
Your body is drained.
Your heart is aching.
Your mind is blown.
Your spirit is swirling.
What can you do to be a part of today’s solution and be changed?
How can you, as Mohandas Gandhi suggests, “Be the change you wish to see?”
Like many, you might not be able to march in the streets to protest. Yet, your heart seeks to walk for justice, peace, and the healing of racism.
With Number Five representing a change in numerology, here are five inspired steps you can now take to shift the negative energy to positive energy:
1. Join a mindful prayer community- You’re invited to my online Facebook event, WAVE-Praying Together Matters, to pause and pray each day from June 4 to July 4—Independence Day in the USA.
2. Pray- In this month-long “event,” you’re called to set the alarm to different times each day and pray, however, and to whomever. What’s essential is that you enter your private, sacred, and silent space.
That simple. That powerful.
RSVP now to WAVE-Praying Together Matters. (Women as Visionaries Everywhere & Friends)
3. Write a prayer- Even if you don’t think you’re a writer, your thoughts are things. They can become a prayer. Put them on paper. Share that positivity for a brighter future.
4. Post a prayer-full meme- Remember Meister Eckhart Tolle’s wisdom, “If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough.” On social media, share gratitude (or peace) memes and quotes for how you see the world; this is expressing robust advance appreciation and gratitude. You don’t have to wait for the good to appear. See it happening now. Use the hashtag #PrayingTogetherMatters.
5. Be the prayer. Be the light. - As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. fiercely and non-violently demonstrated in his life, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Together, we can do this, let us pray.
