Something I may or may not have learned since last Sunday


Ever since getting into this New Thought/New Age spirituality thing, I’ve been confused about something: If God isn’t God as I once thought him to be, but instead the substance of all that is and ever will be, who should I be praying to? I’ve been praying to God, since presumably the message still gets through. But it doesn’t feel quite right. Well, earlier this week, I remembered some advice from Kryon to talk out loud to the many angels and guides that surround us constantly … and so, that is what I did. I imagined a group of real beings with individuality and personality listening to me and going to work on my behalf (since, again, presumably that’s what they do). Beings who know me, like me, and are like me–not some ethereal love-fluff in the air.

It felt right. I felt heard. It made sense.

I think I really learned something here.

(Anyone else prefer this kind of prayer?)

  2. I have come to ease here. When I pray, if I am being somewhat more formal (when that just feels right) I pray to God. Most of the time, I simply talk “to God”, telling my likes my dislikes, what I hope happens, but allowing the universe (and God, or God) to have full sway as the universe (God) knows more than I do.
    I think whatever makes you feel comfortable works. I always had trouble with the Bible’s “Pray without ceasing” verse in the New Testament. I did not see how anyone could pray without ceasing. Now, I realize that my life is a prayer. I am constantly in touch with God even when I don’t know it. I do live in prayer without ceasing. I have been much more relaxed and I have been able to allow the rules and ideas of the universe to be solid in me. I do think with intent and believe in miracles. Pam Grout has become one of my newest heroines.
    Thanks, Mollie, for allowing us all this place to speak.
