I never knew how to pray. When I was young, I used to just call friends up and talked. But the conversations were usually mindless and self-serviced.
Recently I started to talk to myself, my very true self. I don’t have to worry about anything but to be utterly truthful and vulnerable.
But I also notice that these conversations can go either way. I can choose to talk to my mundane self such as, "Oh life sucks", "I just really want to eat a cookie right now", "She is just so mean to me", "I will clean the house tomorrow but not today".
Or I can choose to speak to my higher self. This is what I call my prayers. I tell myself my inspirations, my little understanding of life here and there. Sometimes I tell myself my hardships, sadness and anger, asking for strength, confidence and guidance, to face all the challenges.
Find time to take a walk in the woods. Rest in nature, or even a city park, or your own yard. Close your eyes, listen, and pray. The whole universe is here for us. She is always listening. Our whole being is a prayer.
