Prayer, Meditation, and Creative Thinking

Today, while looking through Facebook I saw quite a few people who were asking for prayer for themselves or family members that were experiencing some type of crisis.  It seems that we all need help at one time or another.

I remember years ago, even though I believed in God, I felt that prayer was a waste of time. I felt that life was going to be whatever it was going to be and we didn't really have a say in our own or other's future.  Basically, at that time, I didn't feel we had the ability to change our lives, and I felt that if God was going to save us then he would do it regardless of whether or not we asked for his help. I guess at that time I just believed that fate was inevitable.

I have since changed my opinion 180 degrees on this matter.  Since I have learned about universal energy and the Law of Attraction, I now understand that prayer, creative thought, or meditation all greatly influence the outcome the events in our lives because they add focused mental energy to possibility of a desired outcome.  I now believe that fate is never assured and life is just one set of probablities waiting to happen.  It is our choices that determine the reality of events that happen to us.

What is Prayer?  Prayer is the act of asking for something from God or to the Universe.

What is Meditation?  Meditation is the act of listening to God, the Universe, the Superconscious, or your Higher Self, for wisdom, advice or knowledge.

What is Creative Thought? Creative thought is focusing specific thoughts on desired outcome.  This is the Law of Attraction at work.

Let me explain further, energy is made up of everything and everyone.  Our thoughts are also energy.  We can control our thoughts so we can control this energy.  When we focus our thoughts on a desired outcome we can effectively create with this energy by using our minds.  When many people get together to focus their prayers or thoughts the effect is amazing. 

I remember hearing a story of a group that went to the highest crime rate cities around the world and sat and meditated or prayed for peace and love for one month in each city.  The results were amazing! Crime statistics later showed that in each of those cities the crime rates had reduced significantly in each city after the groups had prayed for 30 days.  This is the power of concentrated group mental focus.

So it doesn't matter if we pray, meditate, or think creatively; when we do we add energy to outcome that we desire. The more people who join the mental focus the more power the energy has to manifest.

Also for those of you who believe in angels, they are there ready to help anyone who needs them, but they usually will not respond without an invitation to do so.  That's how it works, so ask for a miracle and you just might get one.

Until next time,

My Spiritual Awakening

I consider myself a normal person who has, over a number of years and many life experiences become spiritually awakened.

In my early thirties, my life began to change.  First, for some unknown reason, I became very interested in spirituality and energy.  I did not know why but I began to read every book I could find on the subject and still do so today.  Then I got into martial arts which led me to learn Qigong, which is the balancing of unseen energy throughout the body.  This energy is called Qi (Chee).  I learned that this energy is in everything in our existence including ourselves.

In my search for knowledge, I also learned that there are natural Universal Laws that govern our lives regardless of whether or not we know of them or believe in them.  These laws can help our lives to flourish, or if we go against them they can bring misery to our lives.  Either way, it is our own free will that determines how these laws affect us.

The next few years of my life were filled with a series of unexplained personal crisis’s that I now see in hindsight were opportunities that allowed me to learn how to manifest this knowledge into my own life. 

These opportunities also allowed me to become spiritually awakened to the truth.  I learned that spirituality is about consciousness and subconsciousness, as well as energy and quantum physics. It is also involved in Eastern medicine and also in religions, and yet it is still a subject unto itself.  In the end, spirituality is about you getting in touch with much larger part of yourself.  This larger part of yourself is commonly called your “higher self” and when you become connected to it you can become empowered to create the life you desire.

When we connect to this larger part of ourselves we have the capability to create our future physical reality by consciously controlling this energy with our minds.  Our thoughts control how this energy manifests into physical form and our emotions are our guide to the direction of the future we are creating.  The amazing thing is that most people have unknowingly, for better or worse, already been creating their own reality with this energy their entire lives. Most people don’t realize that the repetitive thoughts in their heads actually do have an impact on their lives.  If they did they would be more selective about the thoughts they chose for themselves.

It is my wish to share this knowledge with you so that you can learn to empower your life and create the type of life you desire. 

We are all on the same journey of discovering the truth.  Some of us are at different points of the journey.  This means that not everyone is ready yet for this information.  For those who are attracted to it, it is here for them now.  For the rest, this info will be here waiting for them when they are ready.
