Part 2 of
Last month I introduced the idea of using an ongoing activity
such as walking to accomplish forms of prayer and creation work. I
suggested walking two possible sacred paths: the path of “Love and
Light” and the path of ‘Honoring Mother Earth”. Today I want to
share with you a few more.
The next sacred path is
‘Thanksgiving’. When walking this path, take the time to thank God
for every thing and every person in your life. Include thanks for
things that you have asked for, even those you have yet to receive.
Thanksgiving helps to bring the request into the present. The energy
of gratitude is a great energy to start any day, project, or
meditation. I have been guided to start every client’s healing or
spiritual session with thanksgiving.
worry so much about
what we don’t have and we often talk to God about what we need.
However, how often do we thank God for our life, for the home we
live in, for the food that we eat everyday. Many people in our area,
are focused on the fact that real estate seems to be sluggish. It is
easy to feel fearful about how you will be able to support
properties that are not currently selling and how to support
yourself when the commissions are not as available. It occurred to
me that instead, we need to focus on thanking God for the
opportunity to own a piece of property, even if appears to be a
Thanksgiving and gratitude provide an opening for
all kinds of wonderful things. So, this sacred path, if you choose
to take it, consists of consciously thanking God and the Universe
for what you have, for the people in your life, for the
opportunities God has given you, for the beauty of the earth, and
its nature… All while walking and breathing in healthy, fresh air.
How many of us are able to stay as focused as we would like to
on our chosen positive affirmations? Well, the next sacred path is
your opportunity to do just that. I call it the path of ‘Positive
Creation’. Walk this path like an ongoing mantra, saying your
affirmations with each step. Examples: "I am healthy body," and
repeat it for 10 footsteps. “I am supported always,” repeat it for
10 footsteps. “I am abundance,” repeat it for 10 footsteps. Your
body takes commands from your thoughts and words, and so does the
universe. Send out those commands. Use affirmations that reflect
what is going on with you, in your life.
creation path can also grow into intention setting, which is a form
of creation. Suggestion – “My intention is that: My day flows easily
and effortlessly. I get all the support I need and everything that
needs to get accomplished is accomplished. Thank you God for my
productive, effortless day.” Repeat this intention as you walk.
Alternatively, maybe intend that: “I attract healthy, spiritually
aware, positive friends to me. Thank you God for my friends who are
aware mind, body, spirit.”
Maybe you would like to walk the
sacred path of ‘Letting Go’ or ‘Forgiving,’ which uses the same
Now that you have the hang of this, try using
this sacred time while on the treadmill at the gym; while you ride
your bike, as you are waiting on line, as you are on hold on the
phone, as you are sitting in a waiting room, as you drive your car,
or as you sit on an airplane.
It is so hard to carve out the
time for healthy activities in our busy life, but the spiritual
practice of creating, thanking, praising, and sending prayers and
love to others is something we can do while doing something else.
Rather than skip this sacred work, or never have time for it,
incorporate into your ongoing routine!
Walk your sacred
path. I know you will enjoy it. It is a nice way to wake up in the
morning. Once you start to engage in this activity, you will find
other creative ways to utilize your sacred path and personalize it.
Footstep by footstep you will consciously intend love,
thanksgiving, praise, and a new way of being - filling yourself,
others, and the universe with a lightness of being. Remember, the
best way to change the world, is to change yourself first!
