What is prayer? Some see it as a plea for help, a request from the higher powers to grant wishes or to create healing. The way I see it is as a conversation with the Universe, God, the Goddess, or angels, guides and helpers. How is prayer different than other activities? I don’t believe it has to be, that we can live in a way that makes every word and thought a prayer. It’s a description of enlightenment – taking each step in a sacred way, with love. To fully inhabit the truth of our connectedness to all things, to the recognition of the watcher within, and the infinity we are part of.
I am a mystic. I choose to see the world through prismatic rose colored glasses of a metaphorical variety. The colors, shapes, light and shadow that is forming itself into a 3D reality is possibly unrolling before each of us as our own personal theater of the Divine. What may be called the Law of Attraction holds the key to manifesting a desired reality, stepping through that portal takes a complete disengagement of the ego mind, the negative mind, the nay-sayers who chant “you can’t do it, you’re not good enough”. One truth I’ve experienced is that when my mind is sure of the outcome, it has never been disappointed. It is the process of training (healing) the subconscious mind which, like an unruly toddler is constantly derailing desires and intentions with its insecurities and negative self talk.
Recalling times in my life when things seemed to be going my way, my desires and intentions being granted, there is one common thread – the confidence rooted in my actions. The clarity of the big YES that has guided me along. There are other ways to talk about it – it can be called “vibration” and when my vibration is “high” or actually aligned then my life looks the way I think it should. Is there anything more important to contemplate? I think not!
As the recognition of my own priorities and desires is able to freely arise to the forefront of my awareness I have been able to more easily recognize my inner guidance system. Thanks to the many teachers who are freely available on the internet, I can tap into the wisdom of sages in an instant! Electronic enlightenment!
We live in a time where technology appears to have gained the capability of creating our heart’s desires in any medium. Our smartphones mean we can all be filmmakers, writers, photographers and musicians. In an instant – with one viral video we can become world famous! The lottery winnings have risen into the multi millions and all around us the possibilities have opened for many into the realms of the Gods.
My own life has lapsed back towards simplicity. Is there a butterfly in the garden today? Will I get to see a hummingbird? how little can I do in a day to make space for the inner journey, the quiet of contemplation and actuality of where the important things are taking place. Life as Prayer….
