(Bringing the positive back into my life)

What is the quality/skill/thing that gains me the attention I get? Can I bottle it? Is it marketable? Can I really be successful if I use it? These are the questions I have recently asked myself. I’ve backed away from a lot of online communities because I have learned that even when I am online I tend to collect people. Not just any people mind you. I collect people from all walks of life going through many different issues. And somehow that healer/councilor in me seems to leak out.

I may have distanced myself from previous communities where I had an experience that resulted in ill energies being thrown in my general direction. I have decided that although it was hurtful and painful to lose some people I cared dearly for. I will not allow this to torment me. I have a gift that was bestowed upon me to make a difference.

So once again I again step foot out into those online communities. Equipped with more experience and wisdom than I had before, I will again make myself available to use my gift.

I have this “ability”, for lack of a better word, to attract. I have that power; I attract people, situations, and a variety of experiences. It just “happens” for me, I do not consciously seek this attention, however, I learn as I respond to these people/situations that there was a reason I needed to know about it or be involved in it. So I have decided that not only do I need to use this ability as the Gods have bestowed it upon me, but I also need to focus that ability and strive to attract the most positive outcome for my life.

The future of my wellbeing is dependent on this. I have the ability to attract the security of a steady job or a solid relationship. I know love and I have experienced it with open arms and taken in all the emotions it can bring. However recently, I had allowed my life to slip and as I have attracted the negative, and so my attitude shall switch and I will attract the positive.

I wish not to sabotage my life, but wish only to make it better. My subconscious should be working together with my conscience for the greatest common goal. I will not allow my doubt rule my subconscious, lest I fall back into the pit of despair to which I hope to never reside in again. I will bring this to fruition. I will make my future a positive living experience. I will achieve my ultimate goal… to make a positive impact on as many lives as possible.

In meditation I sit, tears streaming down my face as I tap into that power given to me by the Goddess. The power that allows her love to flow through me, cleansing my heart of the pain and weakness I have experienced. The power that has freed my soul from the depression that bound it. Finally, again able to spread my wings and rejoin my family as a guardian of the earth and all her creatures.

I will no longer live in self-doubt. I know I’ve made a difference. Regardless of what others have said, regardless of what actions were taken against me. I am powerful today. I have earned the love and respect of many more than those who have shunned me. I have gained love and have let love go. But I will not allow that to hold my spirit back from loving again or loving those released.

I have captured the beauty of life; I can sing with the birds and soar on the winds. I can commune with nature and learn more of the Lady’s will for me. I will allow my voice to be heard on many planes. I will be known for my achievements and not my downfalls. I am a Priestess; I am filled with the power of the earth. I am learned in Gaia’s ways and have followed her teachings to the best of my human abilities.

I will once again tap into my true self. I will allow the nature of my being rule everything I touch. I will delve deep into the ancient powers that flow through my veins. I am a healer and a councilor. I will empower those who feel week without taking their pains as my own. I will lift up the downtrodden without allowing myself to be treaded upon.

For several years now, I have had the glorious opportunity to make footprints on people’s lives. Some were feint but had major impacts on their future; others washed over by selfishness have been buried in the sand. Although I may have only spent a short time with them, I cared for them. I loved them and gave them all I could to make their time in this plane better.

Someday, as the waves of reality come flooding back in to wash away illusions… that small imprint left years ago may resurface and again my heart will be tapped, overflowing with the love that I’ve always held aside for them. Even when they turned on me I will still allow myself to love. I will forgive and live as though that pain had never occurred.

Because in the whole, if I still love then they really didn’t hurt me, they only made me stronger and more willing to persevere. As I step again into the world, refreshed and uplifted from the solitary time I had to spend, I make a difference in my own life first. I renew my spirit through communing with the Goddess; I find better ways to allow my love to bring about change. I make things positive for myself first.

In the course of life I have learned that if I am not content with my current situation all I have to do is change it. So again, I take the lessons that the Gods have taught me, I apply them in my life to empower my spirit. I present to the world a new person, a new spirit, a new power. I carry with me her charged spark of healing and his power to persist. I have embraced it and have allowed it to heal my soul and push me forward.

Today I am a Priestess of light; carrying with me the gift of timeless love. May Gaia work through me today. May her light shine and her spirit bless.
