So some people here know I've been stressing a few things lately. I came up with something the other day that I'd like to share. If anyone else has any like ideas - please share them too... I live near the beach and go running several times a week. When I get to the water i usually sit and talk with the universe/my creator/god/the force - that indefinable thing i still don't feel comfortable giving a name to. i often notice that some of the stones washed upon the shore seem to attract me more than others, almost like they want me to take them home with me. the other day i took one and put it into my pocket. i started to get creative and began imagining that the stone was a battery, or a power pack of sorts from the universe. it's charge was that of love, peace, serenity, healing... all the good things in existence. it was packed with the stuff. i imagined that i could hold it in my fist at anytime throughout the day, and empower myself with all those things, while allowing all negativity in my body to flow into the rock. it could drain me of uselss crap, and fill me with wonderful things. at the end of the day it would be used up like the battery in a cellphone - useless and dead. i could then throw back outside where nature would charge it once again for the next person or whatever needed it. i'm usually not anywhere near that creative so i thought it was something i needed to put out there. hope someone finds a use for it. anyone else have any similar rituals that bring them peace and harmony????
