As It is in Heaven

Many believe that when Jesus prayed that “God’s will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” he was talking about the times we’re living in now. The time when a ‘Golden Age’ will come to the Earth.

The energy around us is changing and has been for some time.  Mother Earth is also evolving, as is mankind. It is time for humanity to wake up and smell the coffee and I believe that is what is happening. The people have been subdued for too long and now people are standing up and questioning the powers that be. In my previous article, 2012 – End of the World or Golden Age of Peace?, I wrote, “for too long the world has been controlled by governments, religions and multi-national banks and corporations. The time has come when people are refusing to continue being repressed and are taking things into their own hands. Prime examples of this are the revolutions in the Middle East, Occupy Wall Street and websites such as Wikileaks andDemand Progress.”  Internet TV channel ‘The People’s Voice’ gives people the opportunity to express views and opinions that would not otherwise be broadcast by the mainstream media.

These are exhilarating times as more and more people are becoming spiritually awakened. Actor and comedian, Russell Brand, is calling for what he calls a ‘spiritual revolution’.  Brand says that “politics just needs to be the administration of certain spiritual principles… We are all one. We’re all together and every individual’s rights need to be respected… Oneness, togetherness, tolerance of one another and making sure that everyone is taken care of.” Another exciting development is that spiritual author  Marianne Williamson is running for Congress in the US.

People are starting to become more altruistic and are taking things into their own hands by making positive changes. A prime example of this is Tangelo Park, where self-made millionaire, Harris Rosen, reduced crime by 50% and increased the high school graduation rate by 100% by offering free day care and scholarships for all graduates.

As I mentioned in another previous article, 2012 – The End of the World as We Know It, “I believe we are witnessing… the end of a world fuelled by greed, hatred and fear; the beginning of a Golden Age of peace, love and happiness.”

I am often criticised for being an idealist and I reply, “I am proud to be an idealist. If everyone in the World was an idealist, it would be a much better place.”

God’s Will Today Prayer

When I say God, I mean the God of my understanding; my higher power, the Universe, the Angels, the Divine, my Higher Self, Buddha, The Tao. I believe in all of those things and I believe that  they are inside me. I am the Universe. God is within me. We are all one and all part of the Divine. We are part of the universe and the universe is part of us.

For sometime now I have been healing through means of recovery programmes that encourage me to admit that I’m powerless and hand my problems over to God. I have no problem handing over my problems to God, although admittedly, sometimes I forget. When I first considered the idea of admitting that I’m powerless however, I felt a huge amount of resistance. “I am powerful. I have already made a number of significant changes in my life. I have had a number of successes,” I said to myself. After considering this and journaling about it I realized that I am powerful, by the grace of God. The Divine within me is what makes me powerful and without that I am nothing. My life is always smoother and more successful when I put my life in God’s hands.

Based on learnings from these programmes and teachings such as those of Marianne Williamson and Doreen Virtue, I say the following prayer every morning:

Dear God and the Angels,

Please send me the willingness to do your will and get out of the way so that your will can be done. Please show me clearly what your will for me is.

What would you have me do today? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom? What would you have me wear? How would you have me do my hair? How would you have me serve humanity?

Thank you. And so it is. Amen

I can hear some of you questioning and even ridiculing the part where I ask what I should I wear and how I should do my hair. This feels right for me and I believe that nothing is too small for God and the Angels to help with. I think my Angels enjoy helping me choose my clothes. They are my girlfriends after all. In my minds eye, I can see my angels pulling a dress out from my wardrobe and holding it up saying, “what about this one?”

I hope this prayer resonates with you and if so I encourage you to use it or devise your own. Enjoy the process and have fun with your higher power as you make choices together. Know that your Higher Power loves you and wants to wrap you up in comfort and security.

Exercise

Use this prayer daily, write your own or find something similar online. Remember to have fun with it.

How to Get What You Want – The Health Experiment

In my recent article How to Get What You Want – Focus on What You Want, I wrote about the importance of focusing on what you want instead of what you don’t want, as what you focus on is what you get. I always used to talk about not having any money and so I didn’t have any money. I changed my thinking and the abundance came. Now I am experiencing problems with my health. I have been ill with fatigue for the last twenty years and in the last year it has been much worse. I am always talking about how ill and tired I am and I know that in order to feel better I have to change my focus. The question is how can I avoid thinking and talking about being tired, when I am tired? What do I say when people ask me how I am?

In her book “A Return to Love”, Marianne Williamson recommends that when we are ill we ask ourselves how our thoughts have attracted this to us. When she was ill she asked herself “Where did my thinking deviate from the truth? Where was my wrong minded perception?” I have done the same for my fatigue and I realise that there are two reasons for it. 1) I like the attention and on some level I hope that my parents will pay me more attention and 2) I am sabotaging myself because I am on the verge of a transformational breakthrough and that scares me.  She recommends the following prayer:

“God, I totally understand how this happened. I return my mind to the point of my error and I atone. I go back. I ask that my perception be healed, and I ask to be released from the effects of my wrong minded thinking. Amen.”

Over the last week I have also been saying the following prayer, which I call the law of attraction prayer: “Please help me to use my words and my thoughts to attract good things into my life and attract vibrant physical and emotional health. I don’t know how I’m going to do it but I’m trusting in you that you can help me to find a way to do it. Please give me faith that my prayers will be answered.” I’ve been saying this prayer every day, at least once a day but I’ve still been feeling tired and I had to come home from work early yesterday as I was ill. As I drove home I prayed and asked why I’m still feeling tired when I’ve been trying so hard to be positive? The first thing that occurred to me that maybe “trying so hard” was the problem.

This morning I realised that I am thinking and talking about being ill a lot. So I’ve decided to do an experiment and stop thinking and talking about being ill. If I catch myself thinking about feeling ill I will say the law of attraction prayer. When people ask me how I am I will tell them that I’m getting better and that I’m thrilled to be alive, which is technically true. To a certain extent, it’s also important to admit how I feel to myself and to talk to someone about it, although I can choose one or two select friends or mentors to talk to, rather than talking about it to everyone I meet or communicate with. As well as admitting how I feel it’s also important to surrender to how I feel, accept it and take good care of myself.

I hope that the experiment will work and that I can attract vibrant physical and emotional health.
