Affirmations, prayers, spells - whatever you want to call them - have power.
Saying words out loud of your wants, needs and desires is an ancient, sacred, divine right/rite that authentically connects you with your “higher power”.
This “higher power” called God, Goddess, Source, the Universe, Ancestors, Angels, Guardians, Guides, Benevolent Ones, Higher Self - however identified - listens to you. Can hear you. Responds to your clear communication.
So chose your words wisely. Make time to connect. Keep the dialogue open. As you ask so it is given.
