Prayer is the practice of connecting to something deeper and more meaningful in life. It is rooted in a sense of spirituality. Prayer has two dimensions, one internal in the form of self-reflection and self-awareness, and the other external in a sense of connection with a depth, something bigger than the self and an inner dependency with all the other creation.
I am a parent who feels it necessary to instil values in my children that will help them to stand up and be head and shoulders above the crowd when it comes to them being their authentic selves.
When I look at my journey of spirituality I have struggled immensely to have faith in myself and my abilities. It took me quite some time to clear off ingrained idiocies that were drummed into me. I had to clear my slate as such so that I could progress. I wish that I had the opportunity to start with something as simple as positive thinking. Read the rest of this entry

AND THANK YOU for stopping by!!
Okay, so I started affirming what I was grateful for on Facebook but I kind of lost track and although I can’t say that this year has been terrible – I can say that I would like the coming days to be better and better.
I am definitely being led to find things that I “just need to” get out there – put out into the world – inspiration – watch the love grow from one to another – and well – when I am inspired – I tend to inspire others it’s a ripple effect.
For a few months now, I have been drawn to the infinity symbol.
At one mind body and soul fair a drew the number 8 card and the lady reader likened the eight to infinity and that I would find myself better suited having grounded myself more. At that stage I had put my passion with animals aside completely, I was so focused on someone else’s dream that mine became clouded.
Then things changed, I had time to “see” my situation and how I wanted to change it. It’s been running over in my mind for days, years even but put on hold.
Eight is Infinity – Paradise regained.
My dreams, my paradise was on hold and I was obliviously blinded by unneeded rose coloured glasses. Now I can move forward fresh, no negative cloud over my head and do what makes me happy. Paradise regained… Journey firmly on route…
Here are the meanings of Eight and Infinity which made sense to me after I woke up with EIGHT shining in my mind a neon light saying you’ll be going in the right direction by doing this….
Infinity (symbol: ∞) is an abstract concept describing something without any limit and is relevant in a number of fields, predominantly mathematics and physics.
The 8 in numerology, balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic. The spiritual side of the 8 is practical, realistic and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations. On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet does not care much about money for the sake of money. It is not greedy, it sees money as a tool, not an end-result. It is generous and willing to take risks.
Angel Number 8 tells you to have faith and trust in your own abilities, skills and talents, and to use them to their highest potential.
The vibration and energy of the number 8 are those of authority, personal power and inner-strength, inner-wisdom, manifesting abundance and prosperity, giving and receiving, self-reliance and dependability and achieving success. Number 8 is also the number of Karma, the Universal Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect – so you sow, so shall you reap.
Angel Number 8 is a message from the angels that financial abundance is on its way to you. You have worked diligently and intelligently towards achieving your goals and aspirations, and your just rewards will be yours. Be grateful for the blessings in your life, and for those yet to come.
Eight is the number of Jesus, whose name in the Greek adds up to 888.
The number 8 in the Bible represents a new beginning, meaning a new order or creation, and man’s true ‘born again’ event when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life.
Kabbalah – Eight, on the other hand, is symbolic of an entity that is one step above the natural order, higher than nature and its limitations. That’s why Chanukah is eight days long—the greatly outnumbered Maccabees’ resolve to battle the Greeks wasn’t logical or natural. They drew on reservoirs of faith and courage that are not part of normative human nature. They therefore merited a miracle higher than nature – a miracle that lasted eight days – and to commemorate this, we light on Chanukah an eight-branched menorah
Eight is perfect intelligence; splendour. The digit value of “IHVH” is the “Number of the Lord”
Buddhist tradition: eight is completion, all possibilities.
Chinese system of belief eight represents the whole. It is all possibilities in manifestation.
Hindu: 8×8 symbolism is the order of the celestial world established on earth. Temples are built on the pattern of the MANDALA, which is the 8×8 symbol. In their belief system there are eight regions of the world, suns, divisions of the day, and eight chakras. *strangely I have been pointed in the direction of mandalas and at another soul fair, connected with the purple energy of a Guru who told me I was open to so much more growth and beautiful energy. *
The eighth strand of DNA vibrates with the pyrites crystal and vibrates to the number eight. And this is connected to the solar plexus chakra. The eighth strand of DNA is about looking at your emotional foundation. It forces you to look at how you honour and respect yourself. It asks you to look at the boundaries that you have set and those of you who are going through deep challenges at this time with regards to looking at boundaries you are working with the frequency of the eighth strand of DNA.
Tarot: As an evolved child of structure, the number eight seeks balance with non-structure. Number eight is about cycles, revolutions, and progress gained on the invisible level.
Eights Most obvious symbolic tell is its written Arabic form (“8”). When we recognize is voluptuous curves, we also identify the lemniscate or infinity symbol. This symbol deals with balance, time, and more interestingly, the recycling travel path of energy.
And that is why I chose Eight… with good balance, love, kindness, generosity and beautiful energy exchanges Eight will grow abundantly in every way that matters.
so… watch this space… I have new ideas and can’t wait to share them with you!
