Now Mom is older and mellower, and she has apologized profusely for her harsh ways of the past. She is a good friend and an ardent supporter of all my creative activities.
I found a trick to erase the past. I now keep a “magic wand” on top of my washing machine. Whenever I feel like it, I pick it up, touch it’s crystal head upon each of my shoulders and the crown of my head, while saying, “ I pronounce myself Queen of Joy and Organization” or whatever I need pronouncing for that day. The wand is made from a curtain rod with a multi-faceted glass ball on the end.
I keep more magic wands in pencil holders and drawers around the house. They are costume wands I’ve found at yard sales. One of my good friends keeps a wand at her house too, and we crown each other “Queen of Peaceful Abundance” and other fun titles as we see fit. It is powerful to physically emphasize the positive pronouncement.
