Prayers for Las Vegas

We are saddened to hear of yet another tragedy for our nation. Many have not yet healed from the recent hurricanes that took lives and destroyed homes. Now we have another shooting, this time in the city of Las Vegas. Our hearts reach out to the families who have lost members and to those who must heal from physical and psychological wounds. While we have a right to be sad, we also have an opportunity to empower and heal ourselves and our country. This incident is not about political affiliation, race, or religion. It is about a person or persons who committed a crime. That crime was committed against our fellow citizens of this country and of Planet Earth. Let...

Sincere 'Thoughts and Prayers'

Sometimes, all we have to give are our thoughts and prayers. While some people will say this is silly, political correctness run amok, we know that research has shown that prayer and positive thoughts can assist in healing and create a favorable outcome. If you have no money or resources to help those in need, sending "thoughts and prayers" is perfectly fine, if you are sincere. If you pledge a prayer, then say one. See the situation as harmoniously and miraculously resolved, and give thanks for that happy outcome. Money is great, and will go a long way to help, but if you are working on your own prosperity. Wish someone who is in desperate need, a miracle. When one...

Miracles Happen

What if we decided that the answer to every prayer is a miracle?  What if we decided that the end result of a positive affirmation is a miracle? What if we decided that every spiritual or magical ritual would result in a miracle? You need $20 and you manifest $200. You request that your car be fixed and you are gifted a new one. You ask that your suffering dog be out of misery and she is miraculously healed and healthier than ever. Miracles, manifestation and magic are our birthright. Time...

Rethinking Prayer

From an early age, many of us are taught that prayer is something we "must" do. We think of it as a way of paying back the great spirit in the sky for the food and material blessings in our lives. So, what is prayer? It is a directed thought of gratitude and love. Of course, there is petition involved sometimes, but the prayer is powered by the faith that the thing we are asking for is already there and we are, simply, giving thanks. Masaro Emoto's work showed that prayer, thought intent and positive words and attention can physically change the structure of water, causing it to form beautiful, geometric crystals. If we think of prayer in this way,...
