Remembering To Pray

When I was a kid I had a routine, as most in a fairly normal Catholic household would have (yes that is right, though my parents raised me mostly Baptists we started out Catholic), we would say grace over dinner and I would say my prayers before bed. These days, when I want to remember to say prayers, to set my intentions for the following day, when I want to speak to my guide, I find myself forgetting more and more. Why is it that we can so easily forget even that which we want so badly?

If I could remember each night I would get on my knees and thank the universe for another day. I would thank the universe for my health and my continuing learning progress. I would also send up to the universe my continued desire to learn and grow, to heal and nurture, and possibly even win the lottery. I would also ask the universe to continue to move me in the direction that I am meant to go in instead of show me, as movement gets MUCH better action and manifestation. I would also speak briefly with Samantha, my guide, and ask her to help me continue throughout the following day to stay true to my set path, to be kind, to be open-minded, and not let the ninnies on my commute to work bring me down. I would also ask for help finding a better paying job that is closer to my home because this 3 hours of commuting a day is really cutting into my down-time.

So, things are slowing down slightly in my Etsy store. I supposed I should have expected this to happen even though I am telling even more people. 8 sales is good, 8 sales in less than 1 month is pretty decent. I am hoping that when I raise my prices back up to what they should be my regular clients stick around. So far I have been very blessed with wonderful, encouraging, and paying customers.

I'm actually thinking about adding numerology reports and charts to my offerings but I'm a little nervous that too much "readings" will scare some away. I didn't start the shop to be a "reading" shop, but that seems to be what is most popular. I'm working on another tarot card/rune pocket which I'm hoping turns out really cute. I also want to put together this really nice necklace I've been thinking about with this lovely Hamsa pendant. I haven't made jewelry in a while so keep your fingers crossed for me!


  1. I find that the best time for me to talk to the Big Whatever is when I'm driving to work. It's not a very long commute for me, only fifteen minutes or so, enough for me to ask for the strength I need, and for my husband to be watched over.

  2. I agree completely! I've been attempting to do it on the last leg of my commute to and from work. (I metro in and out, about an hour and 15 each way)
