Pray Wisely, Knowing Less Is More

always pray wisely

Pray wisely, Lovebirds.

What difference can it make to pray wisely? Today’s little blog post can’t cause you to fully trust prayer, let alone upgrade your connection to God. However, everyone with an interest in prayer can learn to pray wisely. And then discover the difference this makes.

About the degree of splendor in your relationship to the Divine, here’s my advice. Let that most sacred, evolving relationship be what it is. Prayer celebrates that Divine connection and extends it. How? (Dare I say it?) Through skill. Yet again, skill is essential for personal growth.

So yes, prayer is a skill. Today it may help you to upgrade that skill just a bit. With one modest thought: Pray wisely by knowing that less is more.

Friending God

Friending God

Friending God can be as simple as clicking on LIKE at Facebook

Friending God? Sweet!  Except what if you’re not sure that your prayer skills are “perfect”?

Well, your relationship with God need not depend on prayer. Or [any other one thing].

(Fill in that blank with any religious obligation that occurs to you. What do you think might be a requirement for having It? The relationship of your dreams. Like the closeness you have wished for, a lively and productive and very personal relationship with God.)

Friending God. Both You And God Are Good At That.

Already that relationship might be better than you think.

But do you realize how easy it can be, friending God in a new and wonderful way?

Prayer Encouragement

Prayer Encouragement

May today’s Prayer Encouragement remind you that you have the right to benefit hugely from prayer.

Prayer encouragement is our topic for today.

Because you can pray. You can pray powerfully. Afterwards, prayer can help you to feel better, do better, be yourself better.

Did you ever think of it this way? You have as much right to benefit from prayer… as anyone else who has ever lived.

Nonetheless, whether or not you benefit from prayer is up to you.

Even if you already know so much about the inexhaustible resource of prayer, in the days leading up to the inauguration of Donald Trump, you might need an inner boost. So, today, let’s bring new encouragement into your prayers.

Receiving Prayer

Receiving Prayer

Receiving Prayer. Yes, let’s honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by launching a series on prayer to bring results.

Let’s celebrate this holiday — and prayer itself — with a new term: “Receiving prayer.”

Receiving prayer means that you pray in order to receive what you desire. It’s that simple. (At least the definition is simple, anyway.)

Practically speaking, what is “Receiving Prayer”? How can we pray effectively, for human results and also for spiritual awakening?

Let Today Be a Holiday that Includes a Receiving Prayer

When you have a dream, how can you do a Receiving Prayer?

The WHO Prayer Question

WHO prayer question

This series on prayer begins with the WHO prayer question

Prayer is as negotiable as it is personal. With the WHO Prayer Question, I’ll begin a series of blog posts designed to help you pray to your heart’s content.

After today’s focus on the WHO aspect of prayer, what’s to follow? Some thoughts on the what, where, when, and how of prayer.

Admittedly, I don’t consider myself an expert on prayer. So you might prefer to consult people who make religion their life work, such as clergy.

Prayer Secrets. Energetic Literacy Reveals WHAT?

Prayer secrets. What does aura reading show is happening energetically in a  picture-perfect prayer?

When you see prayer pictured in a photograph, what do you see? Today’s article shares prayer secrets revealed by Stage Three Energetic Literacy. My last article introduced this topic. Including why I think it’s fair to research public prayer. Not private prayer, but prayer on display at a media event.

Here’s the photo that inspired today’s blog post (as well as the lead article in my upcoming newsletter, “Reading Life Deeper”).

Join Me In A Prayer Secrets-Type Experiment

Before reading further, would you do this quick experiment? Click on the link above and look at the woman who is front and center. Gladys holds hands in prayer position; her mouth is open.

Take a quick look and then put your reaction into words. Is this a moving prayer? Do you find it courageous, beautiful, what? Please write a comment below. Then continue with the rest of today’s article.

Pray for Trump? I Sure Can.

Pray for President Trump? Yes, I do. And I will.

Pray for Trump? Suprisingly, I now believe that is a smart thing to do.

I do. I really do plan to pray every day for Donald Trump and his family.

You may hate me for even writing this paragraph. Apologies in advance. Ordinarily this is not a political blog. Nor have I blogged about prayers — until a recent article here in advance of the presidential election.

If you’re game to keep reading, I’d like to explain what I’m doing, and why. Perhaps I might even inspire you.

What Does NOT Count as Technique Time — 11 Exceptions to the General Rule

Celebrate Father's Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.

Celebrate Father’s Day today OR any holiday of your choice. Celebrate in a HUMAN way.

Blog-Buddies, I’m so glad to be explaining this last chunk of great importance to those of us who limit our Technique Time to 20 Daily Minutes, Tops. As described in yesterday’s article.

What is Technique Time? It’s all about voluntary positioning of consciousness.

During Technique Time a person positions awareness away from objective reality or surface thoughts and feelings… in order to improve himself or herself.

It’s a movement away from human vibrational frequencies towards Divine vibrational frequencies or — most commonly — the person winds up with awareness positioned squarely at astral vibrational frequencies.

Here are 11 things that could happen during a 24-hour period. None of them would count as your official Technique Time.

Notice the reasons given, however. Each of these exceptions is being named in a context, or a manner of doing a particular activity.

Technique Time Exception #1: Let’s Hear It for Insomnia

All that happens between going to bed for the night and getting out of bed to begin your new day….

If you have insomnia, that could be your lucky opportunity. Because you can pray or visualize or do whatever spiritual activity you like to your heart’s content.

In terms of states of consciousness, you’re moving in and out of waking/sleeping/dreaming. Enjoy that potentially glorious time!

The Power of Prayer, a Guest Post by JULIE from my Enlightenment Life List

 

Prayer power, in Enlightenment and as part of one's path to Enlightenment

Prayer power, in Enlightenment and as part of one’s path to Enlightenment

Blog-Buddies, so often the juice of this blog lies in the comments. Today’s Guest Post began as a shortish comment at Householder Enlightenment, a guest post by JULIE after nearly two years in Enlightenment .

What a gem from JULIE! Wisdom about Householder Enlightenment. JULIE was responding to Comment 4 by ALLISON at that aforementioned guest post.

How can an Enlightened person wisely handle distressing current events, troubling stories in the news? Maybe not too differently from people who have not yet crossed the threshold into Enlightenment.

For sure, I am not the only Enlightenment Coach around here! From me, headings and all the rest comes from Enlightenment Coach JULIE!

Being of  Service to Others, Pre-Enlightenment or in Enlightenment

The better I take care of myself, mentally and emotionally, the more I can be of service to myself and others. From that standpoint, I read and pay attention to the news, but not too much.

If there is something that troubles me deeply, I will hold a space for it.

Prayer with Head Bowed. Aura Reading for a Smart New Age Consumer

Prayer

Prayer with head up or down. Does it matter?

What does it mean to bow your head in prayer? We have been having quite the discussion about that, in terms of consciousness and energy, discussing this topic in terms of our consumer-oriented article about what is meditation and what is hypnosis.

Starting with JORDAN’s Comment 1, you were (and still are) invited to an experiment involving consciousness and prayer with my Comments 10-12.

Wonderful responses have come in already from JULIE, JORDAN, MELANIE, AMANDA, LARA, MERRIT, JNANA, and DAVID.

The consensus was exemplified by JNANA’s Comment 33:
