Ouch, our dear Blog-Buddies in swampy Rhode Island! And all those whose basements have been flooded, cars ruined! All those who went out of state to buy sump pumps from Home Depot, since none were left locally! (A friend reported those pumps break within the first hours of use.)
Is it just me? That the most grumpifying, tooth-gnashing part I can imagine would be the frustration courtesy of Home Depot. There you are, at your basement, having driven by the underwater bits of shopping mall and the traffic congestion. A friend has gone out of state to buy you some pumps to start cleaning up the puddles.
You meet up, transfer the treasure to the trunk of your car. You start the pump slurping up water, and for the first time in hours you believe that the tide is going out on your collective nightmare. And then the thing breaks!
Prayer and energetic literacy
When you can read auras, does that make any difference in your approach to prayer?
For me, it does.
In my practice, facilitating aura healing for clients, I often encounter a form of aura-level debris called “Psychic coercion.”
Psychic coercion happens as a result of toxic prayer, well meant suggestions, or more serious bossiness. Psychic coercion tells people “shoulds.” If the person on the receiving end happens to have a vulnerability to receiving psychic coercion, that goop will stick in that person’s aura and greatly diminish the quality of life.
Just this last week, I devoted a session of Aura Healing and Transformation to Gladys, who had truckloads of it in her aura, plus more in her car and her home and her office. And the more psychic coercion you have, the harder it is to know what you need and want, even who you truly are.
Sure, we cleaned it all up, plus helped her heal that vulnerability pattern — providing a kind of insurance against future astral-level debris.
Even though I can facilitate healing like this in my sleep, it’s so easy (and I may well have done volunteer work of the same kind right in some dreams, helping others), I know the best prevention is simply to avoid sending out the STUFF.
How toxic prayer mucks up an aura
Unfortunately, prayer can become one more way to send forth psychic coercion into the vulnerable.
All you need to is add some shoulds. Or outline what you believe needs to happen, as in:
- Joe should recover from that cold he got trying to clean up his basement.
- Gladys should get her house dry and clean.
- Josephine should make a really big fuss at Home Depot and get them to give her at least five working sump pumps.
No, it’s safest to simply send a person love, light, and power. That’s like wiring money. The recipient will figure out how he or she wants to use it.
My favorite books on prayer are Power Prayer, by Chrissie Blaze, and Praying for Others by Birrell Walsh.
Psychic coercion is a separate kind of astral debris
One advantage of energetic literacy is that you can tell the difference between this particular kind of problem versus other forms of STUFF that can show up in a person’s aura.
When people got through a rough patch, being confused or drained by relationships (or life in general), it can be hard to distinguish these different types of problem:
- Psychic coercion
- A cord of attachment
- Being an unskilled empath
- PMS. (Okay, I’m just joking about that one.)
Bring on energetic literacy, a.k.a. the wisdom to know the differences. And, meanwhile, yes, free and clear prayers to those in Rhode Island are absolutely appropriate.
