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,
