close up photo of arranged stones

I’ve been finding heart shaped rocks all over the place lately. Last week I brought one home and placed it on my dresser. That evening I read about a man who prays using a special object to center him. His object was a stone that said “Faith.”

Immediately I thought of “my” rock, and that night I wrote in my journal while holding the stone in my left hand. Journaling, of course, is a form of prayer.

I felt a little goofy doing it, but it seems to be working. I am reaching a level of clarity in my thoughts, and am experiencing more peace since I began this practice.

When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

Exercise: Find a sacred object of your own, and either hold it in your hand, place it in your pocket, or set it where you can see it before you begin journaling. Write at the top of the page: “What do I need to know right now?” and go on from there.
