Positive Affirmation of the Day:

My intuition grows and develops every day.

Central Theme of Your Writing Piece for the Day:

You have a story growing inside of you.  Heket brings the first signs of life and is involved with midwifery.  Granted, midwifery deals with childbirth and the home, but in this case, this “midwifery” can pertain to the birth of your new book or a new character.

How exciting!

Heket whispers to your intuition that now is the time for you to start that new project.  You are truly blessed!

Writing Focus:

You’re trying to move forward with your storyline.  Heket urges you to include a new character into the mix.  Sure, shake it up and add that bad boy that needs to force everyone in the small town to shake up their lives.  New characters, in some ways, are monkey wrenches — if used properly.

New characters can come in and raise havoc.  Or they can bring entire communities together.  Whatever role your new character plays in your storyline, know that Heket promotes adaptability, healing, and cleansing.  No matter which side of the fence your character is on, one thing for certain is change is inevitable.

What about your character being with child?  Ancient Egyptians wore the amulet of Heket around their necks so she would bless them during childbirth and help carry their child safely into this world.

I Dare You To Take Action Prompt:

Meditate and allow your intuition to guide you to what your new character will be like.  Allow yourself to mentally sketch this person?  What is the gender?  Are they good natured or just ill-mannered?  How does this person inject themselves into the lives of others?  Where do they work?  What is their main passions in life?

There are so many questions to ask and so little time.  Once you’ve really absorbed the essence of this new character, inject them into your rough draft.

When you are finished with your Take Action Prompt, be sure to offer thanks to your creative guides.

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!*
