    PRAYER REQUESTS!!

    Need a helping thought? Post'em here.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: PRAYER REQUESTS!!

    I was actually hoping a few people could help me pray for someone else.
    Amanda, a fellow Pagan on her own Path, has been trying to have a child for some time. I don't know the whole story and I don't ask unless she wants me to, and she hasn't yet. However, her and her husband have been trying for years. I've already prayed, bought her a fertility candle, and have recently purchased some crystals for her that may help. She is trying to do this 'the old fashioned way' but may seek scientific intervention because she is just that desperate. I think she would be happier to know that her body is confident enough to have children (she is healthy enough, as far as she has pointed out; she has not spoken of perhaps the pregnancy being dangerous to her), but either way....
    Any prayers are appreciated. She is a wonderful person who would make a great mother. As a mother myself and knowing how much my daughter has given me, I really would like to try to help her!
    Thank you, and as always, Blessed Be.

    Its a long way back to Eden, dear. Don't sweat the small stuff.

    Duly noted. I will keep your friend in my thoughts.

    Was wondering if some of you nice people could keep my family in your thoughts. I am getting a fledgeling business off the ground (as everyone can see, I'm sure, since I post links all the time...sorry haha) and the problem is, we really a feeling financial strain. My husband is a truck driver and works VERY hard, but it just isn't enough to make ends meet completely. So, if you don't mind, can someone send money wishes our way? Maybe some ideas for money blessings?

    Thanks so much

    You all will be in my prayers. Personally, I think one of the simplest and best ways to convey a blessing is with some incense and prayer and/or chanting. A good money-drawing incense could be made with equal parts cinnamon and sage and half part of cloves. Light it up and chant or pray to your deity(ies).

    I too could use some financial assistance. I've applied for a job with our state government as an office assistant and today I went to take a written test to see if I qualify. Some of it was a bit difficult but I'm pretty sure I earned a decent score. Oddly enough, only three other people showed up. Anyhoo, if y'all could send some energy or squeeze me into your prayers and try to tip the scales in my favor I'd highly appreciate it. Thanks.

    You're in my prayers!

    I have a request of my own; my husband could use some healing energy - he's either got food poisoning or a virus - and pray that the baby and I don't catch it if it's the latter!

    Thanks for the advice Clive. I'll send some thoughts your way.

    I know this is shallow, but I could use any prayers you guys could spare for tomorrow! I've been very into cupcakes lately and I just found out today that there is a cupcake decorating contest going on tomorrow at noon! This would be EXACTLY what I need lately - I've been having some self-esteem issues, particularly related to my cooking skills, and this would make me feel competent again!

    Thanks, you all!!

    Thank you, guys! I'm making one of these and it's not going to be easy because I've never done the sugar glass stuff before. And I'm going to do a red filling, I just don't know what kind yet.
