Hello and Happy Monday,
We are supposed to have another warm sunny day in Northern Virginia and I am so happy.
During my full moon class, we pulled cards from three oracle decks. I was explaining that the cards were fun and how whenever I set an intention to manifest, the cards somehow support what I had put out there. I told a story of a question Joe asked me when we started dating.
We were in the car and Joe asked me if I believed if crystals healed people. I didn't know what he meant, so he elaborated, do you believe crystals can heal people of ailments? He went on, you are into that "stuff", so do you believe that crystals can heal people? I threw the question back at him, and he said, he didn't know that's why he was asking me. My response was, "If someone believes crystals can heal them, then maybe they can." Not really an answer, but the truth. And at the full moon class, I said something like, "what if they do? regarding the oracle cards. My friend laughed and said "what if" could be my new mantra/motto. I liked it.
What if I added "what if" after everything I questioned, or said, or did? So I've been adding it.I quickly changed where I put my "what if" and have added it before I say or do something AND after I make a comment. Yesterday, Melissa wanted to make cupcakes. She wanted to do all the parts on her own. It's definitely a practice in patience to not take over and do it my way, but know I would be stealing her opportunity for learning and growth. When it was time for the icing is when I asked myself, what if she makes a mess? What if she gets the icing all over her hands? What if I steal her joy if I take over. So I put aside my judging mind and was able to enjoy the process of watching her ice her cupcakes and she really wasn't even that messy. The pride she had in serving those cupcakes was incredible to witness.
So I ask you, what if you added those two words into your life for a week? What if they changed your perspective? What if they made a difference? Tell me about it!!!
