We are on round 3! For this round, the pronouns for the Guiding Thoughts change again; we will use the pronoun “we” or “us”, instead of “I” or “you”. When you listen to the Guiding Thoughts (or read them), unite yourself with me, and I will unite myself with you. We are the “we”—you and I—weeeee!
Before you begin each day, take a moment and think about this from Day 08’s Guiding Thought: Love-as-light streams from my heart to your heart! We are connected by Love; we are One in Love. You may even choose to listen to this quickly—it is a thought that will turn your mind to the right attitude for the day’s endeavor.
This is enough to connect us. Just that—a quick thought about connecting with me, and a quick dedication. If you want to connect with others as well, go ahead! (They do not need to be doing the Journey…you may choose to imagine your family members, friends, a group or class that you attend). Sometimes, I picture all of us sitting in a room together, sending love-as-light to each other’s hearts, listening to the Guiding Thought together. We all uplift each other.
Expect this round to be powerful. The intentional connection with others (or with just me), increases the energy that you receive, because you are intentionally giving it, and directing it to support another person. You may notice that you feel more assurance, more trust, greater inner strength. This round reminds you that you are not doing the work alone, that we are all in this together. Rest in the beautiful collaborative energy that we share!
Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…
Day 21 Guiding Thought
All hearts know how to love.
Everything is energy.
The most potent energy is love.
As we learn love, we invite the most powerful energy to express through us, to live as us, to be us!
The heart is Love’s abode.
The heart teaches only love.
We are willing and joyful students!

You can download this and play it in a loop while you allow your heart to speak to you :). I suggest Windows Media Player (I have not tested other players).
I knew that I wanted there to be an “us” in this picture. As the first day of using “we” in the Guiding thought, I wanted that aspect to really come out in the picture. So, the first thing I drew was a bunch of us, sitting on the ground around a teacher (the heart). The colors of the teaching-heart are reflected in each student’s own heart; the colors streaming out from the teaching heart are also those same colors—going into/through each of the students.
The teaching-heart itself is giving off “potent energy” in the form of blue squiggle-zags. That energy is contained by the light blue arch, showing that it is necessary to harness the energy of love in the material world, and to send it out, into the material world. But at the same time…everything is energy….
“Everything is energy” is depicted by the circles that forming a cross over everything in the picture. It extends beyond the boundary of the material and crosses/connects that which is beyond with the material, as well as, everything within the material (everything under the light blue arch).
