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”!
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.
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 26 Guiding Thought
We listen to our hearts and with our hearts.
Our hearts pay attention to each other; we listen to each other’s inner voice, the unspoken words.
We care, and we attend with love to each other’s deeper, silent needs, asking each other’s heart, “How may I strengthen you and raise your energy?”

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).
In this drawing, all of the figures are “on the same page”, so to speak. Each of them is there, willingly connecting with the heart of unity, listening to each other “through it”, attending to each other’s heart-needs. The heart in the middle “feeds” each of them; each of them uses that energy to care for each other. Love from it surrounds them.
As I was drawing, I had the thought, “Where two or more are gathered in His name…”
The question is…how often do two or more people actually gather in the Name of Love?
More often, people are disconnected, looking to fulfill some need other than the heart’s. More often, people seek to fulfill their own needs, not someone else’s, or to fulfill each other’s disconnected needs—the needs of profit or consumerism (“keeping up with the Joneses”), the needs of pride (“ego-boosts”), or the needs of approval (“brown-nosing”).
More often, people look to each other for superficial fulfillment, so, if I attend to someone’s heart, listening to their deeper, silent needs, but they don’t know what I am doing, and I give them something their ego-personality does not want (but their heart does), how do they know…or (worse), what if they perceive it as conflict or attack?
For example, one way of supporting someone’s heart is simply to not acknowledge the “requests” of the ego-personality. Adults can throw fits or temper-tantrums like a two-year old—a way of saying, “I want it and I want it NOW.” Adults can make demands on others that do not take into consideration the other person’s needs or wants –the “it’s all about me syndrome” (which others often see, when the individual does not); they can be belligerent, stubborn, resisting, difficult. These are types of superficial (ego-personality) reactions. These reactions often reflect a singular (“me”)-mind, rather than a collective (“we”)-mind.
What would happen if you simply did not react and instead just stood there, streaming light from your heart, imagining your hearts connected through the Heart of Love, asking “How can I support you, and raise your energy”? This is one way to support someone’s heart-needs on a deeper level—by not participating in ego-personality demands and connecting with them at the heart-level (caveat: do not mistake this as a way to promote your own ego-personality; your Love-intention must be pure).
You know what you are doing and why you are doing it, but they do not. All they will see is that you are not giving them what they want, not giving-in to their ego-personality’s demands. Sometimes it’s hard to simply stand in Love. Sometimes you must choose with wisdom when to apply this, but it becomes easier over time, and with practice, to choose to stand in Love.
It’s also easier when the other person is “on the same page”—working on deepening his or her own heart connection, working to be aware of and to release the ego-personality’s needs. When that person is also working to increase his or her own love, to deepen the heart’s influence, he or she understands your support on a deeper level (even when the ego-personality may not like it). Then, two or more are gathered in His name.
