Communicating with Spirit
There are two main ways to communicate with Spirit: one is prayer and the other is affirmation. Affirmation is a repetitive thought, or phrase we focus on to convince ourselves that what we are praying for is possible. Prayer is a space of surrendering to Great Spirit’s loving grace because we don’t know what to do in a challenging time in our lives.
It is important to use both of these spirit communication forms every day.
When will you take the time to pray today?
What thoughts will you allow yourself today?
Why do you say you have no time to pray with The Beloved when all of The Beloved’s attention is always focused on you?
Spirit Talks to Us
Our spiritual teachers and guides in the world can communicate with us when we call upon them. But in order for Great Spirit to talk to us, in order for us to hear the still small voice within, we must release attention to on pain, anger, fear, grief, and disappointments to place it firmly on Great Spirit’s Blessings.
It is necessary to bring our mind and the emotions to a place of silence even if that silence is only for a few moments. For it is only in that place of quiet that we can hear the inner guidance of Great Spirit.
The key to all of this is the act of surrender.
After you have a taste of True Spirit, you will want more and more all the time.
Learn to pray unceasingly!
Strive to pray with devotion-
Prayer is the road to spirit truth-
Good works are the vehicle
Meditation is the food-
Mantra is the conversation.
We usually pray and perform good works of Spirit for two reasons. One is from fear of punishment and the other is from the hope of reward. But there is a third reason to walk the path of spirit- to pray with a full heart- to listen with an empty mind- and to give to others kindness and blessings- This reason is because it comes from a heart centered on love, joy, peace, and light. We do good because it is the only thing we wish to do…and because it is the right thing to do. We are spiritual from love- not fear- and not from hope of reward. We become the prayer benefactors for the world- hoping to ease the suffering, even if we cannot eliminate it.
I am ready to hear you.
I am your servant.
Grant me wisdom and understanding
so I may bring comfort to troubled hearts.
Bend my heart that I might follow you
without hope of reward, or fear of punishment.
Beloved, you are my inspiration
and Giver of Light.
You alone can fully instruct me with your desires.
Speak therefore directly to me,
for I am ready to hear you!
The Beloved Speaks-
Prayer is to rejoice in My loving gift of life.
It is to see the world with the eyes of a child.
It is to dance with gladness,
and take delight in each day.
Discover your ability to be open-hearted.
Understand that your prayers
will result in inner peace
and bring joy to many hearts-
For you are my Beloved Child.
