The act of prayer and praying can add a healing balm to the psyche. It can pull you up and help deflect negativity when it arises. It can protect you when everyone else is going down. And it also can protect others in your life.
On 11/01/2018, I decided to write short prayers to share with anyone who wanted to read them.
I wrote one prayer every day for one year as an experiment to prove that not only does prayer heal, but also to prove (to myself) that prayer is nourishment to every cell and tissue in my flesh and blood body, and reveals the full spectrum of perception that not only is rooted in this world but the spiritual world, as well.
Already these prayers have become a beautiful meditation piece (peace) a vision board with the prayer and an accompanying photograph I take on most occasions to illuminate the flow of the prayer, on the platform I have chosen to put them.
Here are 10 reasons why I have decided to write prayers:
1) to heal myself
2) to heal other people
3) as a meditation
4) as a way to concentrate
5) as a way to create something meaningful
6) as a way to create something meaningful everyday
7) It’s good writing practice to write a prayer every day.
8) In order to write a prayer a day, I must have organized times of solitude. This means I do not listen to the news or any other form of mindless chatter.
9) I am finding that my intuition is strengthened by the practice of writing prayers. For instance, I am more tuned into the art of taking care of myself, eating foods that agree with me, and staying away from those don’t.
10 )I love the act of reading the prayers I have written to people, like our 100 year old Aunt. She loves them!
I read a story one time written by Carolyn Myss. She said that a woman she knew was in a serious car crash, and had an out of body experience. The accident caused a multi-car pile up on a freeway in one of the major cities in America. Many of the people were complaining because they were going to be late for work.
But from one of the cars she saw the vibrations of a person who was praying for her. The energy field of the area all around the car was expansive. The woman who was in the crash felt the love. She felt it might be worth going back to the body because of the beauty of the love.
But before she returned, she took note of the person’s license plate number.
After several months of recuperation, she sought out that person and thanked her.
My hope for these prayers is that they help to raise the energy of those recipients of the prayer and that they soothe your spirit, as it reverberates outwardly to calm everyone in your life.
May the prayer calm your inward fears.
May it be your friend.
Om, Peace, Amen
