Something I have always found helpful is taking affirmative
action where the universe and my path in life are concerned.
Many years ago when I first read Louise Hay's You Can Heal Your
Life, one thing she said stuck in my mind; always put your order
in to the Universe. How do you receive what you want if you
never place your order? It's like going to a restaurant. I
found this concept very powerful at the time and continue to use
it today. One way I do that is by affirming to the Universe that
I am taking steps to achieve my goals. I do this through the
hands-on creative process of creating stepping stones. Not only
have I been making these stones for several years, but I teach
this process to others as well. It is a powerful spiritual
During this creative stepping stone process, you discover your
inner path, uncover your spiritual nature and open to the
Universe by setting your intentions to step forward. Taking a
step, figuratively and literally, by creating the 'stepping
stone' sends out a call to the Universe with an affirmation of
your intention and desire. Each stone you create can be a symbol
of that intention. Stepping forward opens up energy around you
to help you achieve your goals. It's always surprising to see
what wonderful things start to happen after you create new
Stones can be decorated with symbols of your intention, words,
colors, etc. This may include feathers, leaves, shells, stones
or crystals. Each stepping stone is as unique as your individual
path. No two stones are ever alike. It is a wonderful process
of self discovery and creative expression.
What message or 'order' would you like to place with the
Universe? Are you prepared to show the Universe you are ready to
take the steps involved in having what you're asking for? Think
about it? then take the action. Go to a local hardware store or
a Home Depot and buy masonry mix that only requires you to add
water. I use plastic trays that go underneath flower pots as
molds for stepping stones. Just follow directions for the mortar
mix and use a trowel to smooth it into place. While the mix is
still wet, decorate the stone with your intentions- I use a
pencil to draw words and intentions on mine, sometimes Chinese
symbols, maybe crystals, etc. It's all up to you! You are the
creator of your stones, and the creator of your path- you
determine what step you will take next. This is a wonderful
action to empower yourself and to send a clear message to the
Universe at the same time.
Let the stone dry for 24 hours in a warm place and then pop it
out of the mold. The stepping stones can be displayed in your
home, garden path, or flower bed upon completion.
Good luck with it and have fun!
