Chilean Minors Rescue: The Power of Prayer and Thought Creates a Miracle.

We recently witness a modern day miracle when 33 miners we rescued after being trapped more than 2,000 feet down in a mine in Chile for an amazing 69 days.

When the miners first became trapped their chances of survival were next to nonexistent.  Many people had considered them as good as dead.  Still the miners prevailed with their persistent hope and faith while enduring very challenging conditions, and patiently wait for over two months before they would eventually be rescued.

During this time, the whole world watched and prayed for them.  I know I said a silent prayer asking the Archangel Michael to go to and help them.  I know much of the world did too.  I believe that this collective thought and prayer, as well as the miner's own will to live, are what ultimately created this modern day miracle.

In the book, "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, there is a chapter about The Power of the Mastermind.  In this chapter,  it discusses the amazing power of group thinking.  This power can be used to create new technology, grow a business, or even create a miracle for a group of miners in Chile.

In my blog about Prayer, Meditation, and Creative Thinking, I discussed how the power of thought and prayer can add energy to the manifestation of our desires.

You see the future is never set.  It is always just a set of probabilities waiting for one or more conscious minds to focus on it and create a physical reality.  When many of the minds on our planet and the Universe were focused on helping these miners survive their ordeal, a miracle was created.

For those who are not spiritual, I will explain in scientific terms using quantum physics principles.  In this case, many minds of this world worked together to influence the subatomic waves of energy into forming subatomic particles (matter) in the form of the physical miracle we just witnessed.  This is how The Law of Attraction works.

Once the world realizes how to use The Law of Attraction, we will see that miracles can become an every day event.  It is merely a matter of focusing enough conscious energy on a desired outcome.

It is interesting to note that this is why in sporting events that the home team usually has an advantage.  It is because most of the people at the game are consciously rooting for the home team.  This focused thought adds to momentum that the home team is able to translate into an advantage.

So in summary, the collective consciousness of the miners and the world was able to desire and see the eventual safe rescue of the miners.  This eventually attracted this successful outcome to the miners.

So the next time you see someone in need, take a minute and pray for them or just wish them good things.  You may just be saving their life, and in the process you will be bringing good energy back to yourself for your own future.

What It Means to be Grounded, Centered, or Present.

What Does It Mean to Be Grounded, Centered, or Present?

I struggled with this for many years as my spiritual teachers often told me that I need to be more grounded but they never told me what that meant. 

After years of wondering what this meant, it finally came to me.  Being grounded, centered, or present means being focused in the moment that is Now.

All too often, I was mentally off somewhere else preparing my future, but I this left me seemingly unconscious of what was really happening in any given moment.  Of course, I was able to go to work and do my daily tasks, but by not being grounded, I often was not able to really focus on how I was feeling at any given moment or to appreciate the beauty of it.  I was living life on auto pilot, and consequently was literally unable to smell the roses that were in front of me.

I have since learned that life is about balance.  There is nothing wrong with having your head in the clouds while you are trying to mentally create the future, but it is also important to come back down to earth often and to be present and aware of what each moment brings. 

So now I spend part of each day focused on my future, but I take frequent breaks to focus on how I feel and appreciate whatever is happening right now.

Appreciating the moment can be enjoying a smile on your child’s face.  It can be enjoying the lush diversity of colors in the garden.  It can be breathing in fresh air outside.  It can also be listening to how you are feeling or what your body is trying to tell you. Many of strokes and heart attacks could have been prevented by simply paying attention to how the body feels at any given point in time.  

By being grounded and focused on the present, you can also cure anxiety by avoiding the regrets of the past or the worry of possible future outcomes.  In the "now" moment you can change how you think to change how you feel.  

What does it mean to you?  Please share in the comments below how you use grounding in your daily life.
