I am moving forward candle was created after a friend was fired from her job during the pandemic. At that time, she had already lost a family member to covid. Sometimes, I wish I could simply change the circumstances of my loved ones. However, I always remind them that setbacks are temporary. At any point in life, you can manifest a new life, a new job, even a new relationship. Keep your eyes on the true prizes of life and focus only on what is within your locus of control. Let go of everything that is outside of that locus. As best explained by the law of attraction, you attract the energies, people, and circumstances that mirror what you think. Control your conscious mind, move forward, and manifest what you want!
I am moving forward.
This Adinkra symbol called “Sankofa” translates to “retrieve”. It literally means to “go back, and get”, or fetch. The symbol is based on a mythical bird with its feet firmly planted forward with its head turned backwards. Thus, the Akan believe the past serves as a guide for planning the future. To the Akan, it is this wisdom in learning from the past which ensures a strong future. With the passing of time comes movement and learning; mistakes are part of the learning process. The knowledge you gain from those mistakes is what must never be forgotten. Mistakes are signs that you are living and learning. You are free as a bird to make mistakes! Now, forgive yourself first, and others next for the mistakes that have already happened. Next, welcome new and imminent mistakes as they are inevitable. Then, manifest the life you want to live by spreading your wings and fly away; live as your ancestors wished for you. You deserve to!
