I’m sharing this with you because it illustrates the power of prayer.
As we have all experienced, when we’re young, other young people can be unkind or they simply don’t think about the ramifications of their behavior. (This can hold true in adults too!) I can recall such a person when I was very young and how I just wanted that person to move away so I didn’t have to deal with their consistently bad behavior. I was not a victim personally, but saw how they treated other people. So, what does a young person do when in this situation? They simply wish the obstacle to disappear, with no harm coming to them, just go. I made such a wish on three separate occasions and to my surprise, all three families moved away. It was not until the third family had moved that I associated my wishes with their physically moving away. I thought how delusional it would be for me to think my wishing made it happen, but after the third occasion, I revised my thought process. For all I knew, they each moved on to better lives. Looking back on those times I truly hope that was the case.
More recently, I have prayed for healing clients to come to me that truly need my help. I’d sometimes go weeks without praying for clients and then one day I would make a prayer to work with clients who I could assist in their life challenges. Amazingly, each prayer was almost immediately answered with a new client. I had to remind myself I had asked for them to appear because we tend to think “things just happen”, but I know there are no coincidences in life. We are each powerful and connected beings.
I believe prayers and their manifestation into reality depend on how much you believe and how deeply you ask. Specifically, if you are asking for something you do not believe you deserve, it will not happen. I’ve asked to win the lottery many times over so I can open a healing center here in Los Angeles where all types of healers could come and practice their gifts. I haven’t won the lottery, but I still have the dream of giving back to healers and society as a whole.
Ultimately, prayer works, but as I say to my clients… be careful what you wish for because it will come true. In order to wish for things that will improve your quality of life, you must first possess the wisdom to know if such things will actually improve your life or contribute to you chasing that which is truly unimportant and ultimately brings no satisfaction.
I can remember being told about a book that I should read. I started looking for the book and could not find it anywhere. This was prior to the public having access to the internet. I went home and told my wife I was looking for this book. The very next day my wife was on the phone with her sister and asked her why she had not been able to reach her all day. Her sister replied that she had been at the library copying each page of a book on the copy machine because the library would not allow her to take the book out of the building. Guess what? It was the same exact book that I had been looking for and it was written way back in the early 1900’s. The book is called The Game of Life and How to Play It, authored by Florence Scovel Shinn. It outlines the importance of prayer and how to use it in your life. I only recommend two books to my clients and this is one of them. You can find it quite easily online now and if you follow its principles you will be amazed at how quickly your wishes can come true.
Remember, be careful what you wish for!
Wishing you love, joy, happiness, ease and contentment.
