Positive Affirmation of the Day:

I listen to my intuition.

Central Theme of Your Writing Piece for the Day:

Anubis, Lord of the Afterlife, comes into your life reversed for four reasons: healing, guidance, lightness of spirit, and protection.  For some people, it means that they are the ones helping others achieve these four elements.  For other people, it means that they are in need of helping in these four areas.

Look internally to see which one you might be: the helper or the one needing help.

Life is not meant to be a struggle and there is no reason to go at it alone.  Dogs are pack animals and they create success together.  One lone dog does not fare well against the elements of nature.  In order for you to reach your highest potential and receive the greatest gifts as a person of light, gathering with likeminded people is essential.  Go find your pack.  If not create one.

Writing Focus:

It’s always been said that in order for you to write well, you need to know yourself first.  Experience comes in the form of many shapes and sizes.  I believe that you can draw upon your own experiences to write well.  However, sometimes talking to other people and listening to them express their own personal experiences on their life journey can help you with your writing as well.

Getting to Know Yourself: Now is the time to go inward so you can shine outward.  Part of  the healing and stepping into the lightness of spirit process is to wrestle with your own demons.  You have internal scars that you wish to keep hidden from the rest of the world to see.  It’s not necessary to stand on a wooden box in the center of town and air out your personal pain.   Journaling is an excellent tool for inner healing and allowing your inner turmoil onto the pages.

Why allow all that muck take space in your heart when you are clearly designed for bigger and better things?!!

Guiding questions:

When did you feel like you were in the most pain in your life and why?  What were the events surrounding you at that time? How did you get through it?

When did you experience a heavy feeling of dread?  Why did that feeling emerge? What were the events surrounding you at that time? How did you get through it?

When did you experience the most pain in your life?  What was the event that brought upon such great misery for you?  Who was the person that helped you through that rough patch?

Strengthening Your character: Your character has been on a solitary journey for quite some time.  Perhaps your character has not recovered from a traumatic moment and spends all of his/her time in that one specific moment.  Or your character notices that a co-worker or a fellow neighbor is suffering.  Now is the time for your character to step into the life of another and offer assistance.

Guiding Questions:

Who is the person that needs help?  What does the person need help with?  How can your character offer help?  What makes your character the right person to help this other person on their own personal journey towards healing?

If you’re not sure how to answer these questions because it has not been a personal experience for you, then reach out into your community and join some groups, so you can listen to the stories of others.  This is perfect material for your work today.

I Dare You To Take Action Prompt:

Prepare yourself for a deep mediation.  Light a candle and fill the air with your favorite incense.  Close your eyes, and breathe in deeply so you become relaxed.  Visualize yourself being bathed in loving white light.  Ask your spirit guide to step in at this time to help you with healing, guidance, lightness of spirit, and protection.  As you receive your answers, you are being wrapped in a protective bubble to protected you from any opposition that comes your way.

Your intuitive powers have increased tenfold and you have a strong internal compass that will lead you in the right direction of your life.  You also have the power to help others in their journeys.  Your heart radiates nothing but love and light.  Everyone you interact with today will feel your warmth and gentleness.

Wondering where in the world I got this amazing stone? It is part of The Eye of Horus: An Oracle of Ancient Egypt by David Lawson. I’m not an affiliate in any way. I bought the oracle stones over 10 years ago because they really spoke to me!*
