SPELLS, PRAYERS, CREATIVE VISUALIZATION, AND AFFIRMATIONS
When we speak spells, prayers, affirmations and goal declaration what do they have in common? They have common components: a desire or need, a focus outside themselves to attain the desire or need and faith in a power and words.
Words are powerful. Learn to chose positive, powerful, and descriptive words that convey and paint a true picture of what you are thinking.
To hear more about the topic listen to my May 6, 2014 radio show 9:15 to 10 a.m. PST KOWS107-3.org. Streams on Internet.
A spell is direct in wording and intention - this is what I'm creating through the power of myself, the help of the universe (planets, Divine sources as in goddess and gods) and the energy from above, below and all around. Spell casters depend upon their own ability to manifest their dreams, visions, wants, needs etc. They cal in the power of energies from the four directions, east (air -mental clarity); south (fire- action, energy, passion); west (water - dreams, visions, spiritual connections) and north (earth - results, products, practicality) to support and enlighten them to create. They will also call in the energies from above (heavens) and below (on the earth). Before casting a spell it is advised everything humanly possible is done to attain whatever the caster wants. Also, advised before a spell it to be clear with what it is the person wants or believes they need (whether it is really is for them will be revealed in the process of manifesting.) With spells, once completed, don't look back. It is working. Give it time to work. Don't cast it again for at least thirty days or longer. That's unless you're doing a three, seven or nine day spell consecutively.
Prayers are asking for many things. Some people ask for little things, as in let me pass this test, let my team win the game (really?); show me a sign he or she loves me, and big things like for a miracle in a dire medical situation or world peace. Prayers can have too many words. Rambling thoughts. Desperate, pleading words for God, Allah, whomever, to fix whatever. Certainly in those worst moments of life, in dire times, we are desperate for a relief of our situation, our pain. Often we use words from prayers learned rather than prayers from your heart. People often go on and on, talking to their Divine Connection (God, Goddess, Buddha, Allah, or another) pouring out emotions, making deals, reminding God etc how they are good people, worthy people or unworthy because but now they see the error of their ways. Most people learn to pray by being dependent upon an entity greater than and outside of themselves to provide a hopeful successful outcome to a need, want and/or dream. They ask permission from this source. They give their power to this entity to receive if the entity deems them worthy of, and often bargain, if you give me this then I will do this_______. Their faith can often be focused outside of themselves whereas one who uses spells, depends upon her or his inner faith. If you are praying for an outcome of a rather serious need, remember to stop praying and listen for your Divine All (God, Mary, the Blessed One, Buddha, Allah etc.) to send you a message you are heard. Praying is talking, meditating is listening. Have faith.
Creative Visualization - Goal setting and practical applications: Creative Visualize is powerful for it is the images, symbols and all created in the mind. The mental self decides how it's going to look at something, the past, present and future. To be most successful at creative visualization take a good amount of time to be clear. Check what you are thinking (seeing in your mind). Have a talk with yourself to clear up any negative and/or fearful thoughts about what it is you wish to create in your life, different from what you have now. You might want to write what you are planning on creating. Does it sound reasonable? Are the words in line with the picture in your mind? If you can bring it down to one or two lines, you're in a better place to start creating. Keep it simple, keep it clear with clear wording. A bit of both inside and outside yourself is taking place - direct focus and placing faith in another occurs. For instance "I will work to fulfill my goal while realizing it's up to me to take action or not. I'm also dependent upon the support of another or others to fulfill this goal." Of course a goal setter can also cast a spell as well as pray. See Ask the Coaches for some goal setting and achieving advice.
Affirmations: I like affirmations no matter how I'm manifesting and/or praying for. An affirmation is a simple, one sentence thought to create a feeling, a power, and/or a situation. Positive wording is used. "I create loving people in my life to support my goals." - Nice and simple, no? Write an affirmation at least three times a day for twenty-one days, put down your pen and let it all happen. Chances are, it's already occurring before the twenty-one days are over. Pay attention to the often subtle signs.
I do all four to fulfill my valuable goals and live authentically my purpose and mission in life. Blessed be you and your dreams and goals this year.
