Thank you for coming, we couldn’t have done it without you.
The weekend was crammed as full of wonderful activities as we could get it (although we are learning to build in breathing room).
We hope the changes you made were positive, and you can get a chance to relax and integrate everything you took in during the conference. We wish for you a peaceful transition, continued benefit from the community, and a great holiday season.
Many of us are familiar with Invoking a Diety, Angel, Saint or other divine helper withe whatever we are trying to accomplish. Asking for help when it’s needed, is a good idea whether asking a friend or a neighbor or a god. Sometimes a job needs three hands- so we ask a friend to provide one. Sometimes a Working needs more energy than we have personally available, so we ask for divine energy. When you are trying to do something, you don’t generally want a random result, you want one favorable to you.
Remember you want to ask the right friend (earthly or otherwise). You don’t ask your Mom to help you raid the cookie jar, or your broke friend to loan you $25 until payday; you pick who you ask. Similarly you’ll ask Jesus, or Kwan Yin, or Eir for help healing, but not for giving a bully the “learning experience” he desperately needs. That’s why St. Joseph helps you sell your house, and St. Anthony helps you find lost items. People (and spirits) like doing what they’re good at. And don’t forget to thank them after, and show your appreciation before you start asking for favors.
