Sounds like positivity will go a long way. What to do though when doubt tries to creep into your mind? D: Tell those thoughts to go away I guess eh? Numbers are quite interesting. Some nights ago I saw the number 16, 21 and 24 in my dreams. What do those numbers mean I wonder? Meditation I do need to do more.I often WILL write or draw out what it is I want to happen and I concentrate on it. Meditate on it and make sure I'm totally focused on it happening the way I want it to happen. I will NOT be negative about it at all, just keep my focus on it actually happening the way I want it to. And then, it generally does--more often then not anyway. I don't do anything special with the paper that I write my intention(s) on or draw it on, save to look at it now and again and when I do, I tell myself it will be so. I will at times hold it also when I am meditating on it and envisioning it. I do this for people who are ill and I pray for--I'll write their name on a card and hold it and envision them getting well. If they have a badly broken leg--I meditate and envision them healing quickly and completely. I also do it for myself, when I am ill. It helps me to manage my pain when I have it without the aid of medicine.
However, your mom is correct. You have to be very careful what it is you wish for/pray for. Praying for money coming to you can indicate a death in the family and you inheriting monies--(just an example)--or another one is when you are angry, you shouldn't wish that hte person who made you angry suffers in any way--as it may just occur. So, always be careful what you wish for and be careful how you word it!
eys, that is cool! I love the numbers myself and pay close attention to them myself.
I also do a prayer meditation daily (or pretty much daily) and I keep a notebook on all the names and what I need to pray for them on. When I say my daily meditaiton prayer, I will say my intentions for the day then add "and for all those in this book I said I would pray for".
