Besides many images of the Sacred Feminine, my altar holds a statue of Asklepios, the god of healing through dreams. Another of my morning recitations is a brief prayer to him that is often some variation on this:
Hail, Asklepios, god of dreams and healing;
thank you for guidance and thank you for my innate wholeness.
This utterance helps me feel connected to the healthiest parts of myself and acts as a reminder that at my core I am already whole. To reflect on my wholeness rather than approaching my life from what’s “wrong” helps me to treat fellow humans and all of creation in an equally respectful manner. As they say in Appreciative Inquiry, “What we focus on becomes our reality.“
One of my favourite quotes by Eckart Tolle is:
In the deeper dimension of Being, you are complete and whole NOW.
My short Asklepian prayer keeps me in that energy.
