About Prayers and Wishes

I’m not in any way religious, but don’t take that to mean I’m a non-believer.  I just don’t really want to be boxed in to one or another way of believing.  So I take a little bit from everyone’s belief systems and stick with the things I really enjoy.

I was reading skrambled’s blog on a wedding where guests were encouraged to send their wishes up in little hot air balloons.  And today my yoga teacher gave me a beautiful sequence to do that I have to share with y’all!  It’s a moving prayer.

Sitting on your knees (kneeling):  “Oh Universal Energy”
Rising up on your knees with your arms skywards:  “Giver of love, light and wisdom”
Bowing forwards with your arms forwards: “I choose to surrender to your purpose”
On hands and knees (cat stretch), arched back and head up: “Within the abundance of life”
Down Facing Dog :  “To find strength and stability”
Back to cat stretch: “To open my heart, awaken my intuition”
Back to bowing forwards with arms stretched forwards:  “Releasing my inner nonsense”
Back to rising up on knees: “So that I can rise in love, light and wisdom”
Kneeling: “of the universal self”

I’m a big believer in creating intention with our words.  It’s so important to focus on what we want to create in our lives and not what we already have that is not going well.

So here is my wish for all of us currently-fertility-challenged-ladies (I just can’t bring myself to use the IF word):

May we all be blessed by miracles
May all our futures be filled with morning sickness, sleepless nights, baby puke and smelly nappies (lots of them)
May we find peace in our souls
May the difficult journey we are on strengthen us, one way or another!
