Good morning family, it’s Saturday morning. I let the dogs out and all the clear blue sky from yesterday has disappeared into more gray, wet and warm? It was gray, wet and cold. I actually ordered myself a lamp that simulates sunlight yesterday to try and help me with my “SAD” (https://www.psychologytoday.com/conditions/seasonal-affective-disorder). Hopefully it will help. Lately when the sun comes out I’ve been taking my cot outside and just laying in it lol.
This morning I woke up to a message relating to my experiences yesterday afternoon. I was asked to share my gifts with regards to energy healing yesterday and it was a very rewarding experience! Truly an honor every time! Well one of the women I attempted to work with was in a particularly difficult state of being and I felt like I was bumping up against a wall with her. I won’t go into any details because it’s personal to her, but I will say the wall I felt is literally inside of her mind and she told me so. It’s frustrating when you can’t reach the person you need to reach the most. So I’ve been praying for her the prayer I pray for everyone I pray for to include myself, “Whatever is for her greatest good, not as I would have it but as you would have it.”
It was her that I was thinking about when I got out of bed and wrote this message:
When you place expectations on how God, Source, The Universe, Allah, Buddha, Odin…..whatever the name of your divinity….is going to answer your cry for help, you are more times than not going to be disappointed! The reason you will often be disappointed is you can’t place expectations and or “parameters” to the will of God, Source, Universe, Energy. I used to pray with conditions and have learned that when I prayed like that, I was putting up road blocks to God answering me. When God didn’t answer me just like I asked, I got resentful and my faith wavered. I’ve had to learn to let go and let God.
(The God of my understanding is pure energy and everything in existence is a manifestation of God – we are all fragments of one energy force or one God)
One day I listened to a woman I know tell me she needed to have her fence fixed and couldn’t do it by herself. I asked her if she had help or if anyone had offered and she said dismissively that a relative had offered but she didn’t want THEM to do it. I then asked her, “Have you been praying about it?” and she said “Yes, of course.” I then said to her, “Then let your relative fix your fence! there is the answer to your prayers!” She was taken aback a bit but I could see in her eyes she got what I was saying. She was praying, God was answering and there she was judging the answer!
Have you been praying to the God of your understanding for something to happen in your life or been praying for someone else? Are you placing conditions on the answer? Are you placing expectations on God as to how “things should go?” STOP! You are obstructing the flow of a power greater than yourself. Let go, let God!
Even if you claim not to believe in a “God” or source of divinity (for me God is pure energy – “everything”), I tell you the winds of this planet are more powerful than you. You have no more power over the wind than you do over God. There are people on this planet who are playing with these forces of nature and it will be all of our undoing if they continue. For those who claim to have no faith in anything but themselves or Science, I would say there is force greater than you and if you are placed in the right conditions, you will find faith in that force. We all do in the end.
