For divining success, carry an almond with you for one full day before proceeding. Anoint a green or orange candle with lavender oil. Light the candle and visualize the success you seek. See yourself waking up each day with new ideas and the benefits of spirit guidance. Anoint the almond with the lavender oil, chanting three times:
As I lay me down to sleep,
Dreams and messages I will seek.
Spirit guidance, come to me.
Show me what I need to see.
Place the almond under your bed. Each night as you lie down to sleep, hold the intent to remember dreams that will show you the way to success.
Lincoln is called the Great Emancipator and is thought of as one of our great presidents. Know this, however: Lincoln was a rather unknown figure until the age of forty, when he first entered the Illinois state legislature. His later assassination threw the country into widespread mourning, inspiring Walt Whitman to write:
Coffin that passes through lanes and street,
Through day and night with the great cloud darkening the land. . .
I mourned, and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.
