Welcome to my journal!
There are many different kinds of prayer. I think a lot of people pray without even knowing they are doing it. A strong enough will towards something, whether it's a plea or a giving gesture of kindness; a cleansing of emotion through some form of release, or a renewal of energy through something inspirational; I think all of those things are prayer. Where there is intent and a flow of energy; that is prayer to me.
When I make a Prayer Crane, I write the prayer on a piece of origami paper. Then I fold the crane very purposefully, thinking of the thing I'm praying about. When it's finished, I spend a few more minutes meditating with the crane, imbuing it with my energy with the thought, "Make these things happen" or whatever is appropriate for that prayer. Then I hang them up with some string under my windowsill; every time I see them, I am reminded of the promise I made to myself about that prayer, and that I am always in possession of the tools I need to live my life the way I am called to.
I was inspired by ~kitton
's reaching out to her fellow deviants with her Prayer Stars
, and wanted to something similar.
At first I thought, "I'm too depressed right now, I don't have the energy to spare for other people."
But then I realized that it would probably be really good for me. Because the truth is, the energy is never really gone. Just because I feel like shit right now doesn't mean that at any moment that I choose I can't lift myself back up; there is always the means for me to do so; that energy is not gone, it's simply deep within myself, in a place that I somehow wandered away from and need to find my way back to.So, friends, is there something or someone you would like a prayer for?
You don't have to be religious or spiritual even to submit a request; for me, just knowing that a complete stranger was willing to spend time thinking about me and sending me good thoughts and energy was bolstering.Please leave a real name in your comment or note,
I think it helps it be more genuine, it's easier for me to picture a person and not a profile. If it's too personal you can send a note, but feel free to leave a comment on this journal too.
