We will often light a candle for someone, send positive intentions & a particular color light depending on their needs. A few months back I decided to make a Prayer Bowl. I remembered a glass bowl that I had done some decoupage on many years ago & could never figure out it's use, only that I liked it.
So, the Kitchen Altar was born.
On the altar are some of my favorite creatures, a faery, bat, dragon & a tiny goose representing a donation to Heifer Project made in my name one birthday. There is also a small 1/2 gourd as a bowl for offerings to my home spirit & 2 candles.
I have a HUGE collection of wine corks, that I keep meaning to craft with, but never do. These became intention/prayer representations.
This small act helps me focus energy for these prayers, send them out to the Universe, & then release the outcome so I don't worry.
I used to feel overwhelmed by all the requests for "light & energy" & didn't know how to respond when a Christian friend asked me to pray for them. Now, I have feel like I can accept any request & determine how best to send off the prayer/light/energy & not be drained by the process.
The bowl is a constant reminder of how many wonderful people are in my life & of how each one of us is faced with challenges.
What do you do to send out positive vibes for your people while maintaining your strength??
Wild & Bright Blessings!
