Prayers and meditation work best when consciousness is in the "NOW". Past harms, resentments, and fears are blocking the materialization of offerings from spirit. I have to let go of the barriers I have built to protect myself so I am presently emotionally available. Clearing the channel to connect consciously to my higher power is the direct route to my source and guidance.

 When I clear my relationship to my Creator as stated in the St. Francis Assisi prayer, "Lord make me a channel of  Thy peace," through releasing my past fearful ways and making amends to those I harmed, I am ready to be allied directly to the God of my understanding. 

 Abundance, health, and love are my inheritance. They manifest when I merge my energy with that of the source of my being. This aligns me in the flow of a beneficent spiritual energy. I feel bliss and prosperity. If you are following this column, you will find past articles that describe letting go of fear, guilt, shame, and other negative energies to allow emotional freedom. It is necessary to include acknowledging your part in past relationships and making them right. This further completes breaking emotional strings from the past. I describe the process in my book, "Paradigm Busters, Reveal the Real You" at Amazon.

Reading a book to learn to meditate did not work for me. Therefore, in prayer I asked God to teach me. I lay on my bed facing the cross on the wall with open arms. "Whatever you have for me God, I am here with open arms to hear." After a few days of silence, Daily, I began to hear unspoken messages, which were new to me about how to heal my relationship with my mother. The next year, I heard that I was to take action along with my new information. Each morning I listen for new understanding. For me life is about walking in faith.

After hearing Tesla's explanation about the universe, I understood. He said that to understand the universe, it is about energy, vibration, and frequency. Prayer is raising my consciousness beyond the ego and going directly to my Creator. When that higher contact is achieved, I am listening in the stillness. For me, it is like tuning into a higher frequency of a radio-tuning dial.

It took time to understand the more that I let go of past mental obstructs for protection, the more easily the answers and resolutions will appear. When I was in grade school visiting my aunt in California, I thought her baby grand piano was the most beautiful thing I ever saw. I prayed that I could have a piano like hers. At home, I played on an old upright, which was a decent, piano, but not beautiful. When I married, we could not afford an expensive one so we bought a quality spinet. In the divorce, he got the piano. This created an opening for a new piano for me.

I wanted to replace the piano I lost in the divorce. After a few years, I decided I would save for a baby grand piano like my aunt's. When I was ready to shop for my new piano, my best friend, who had perfect pitch, went with me to try out the many pianos at an outlet barn. While I was browsing, I heard her playing a black baby grand. It felt like it called out to me. I even wanted an electronic player installed like my other aunt had on her piano, which I loved to play, too.   

While refinancing my mortgage for my home two years later, I included the remaining loan amount of the piano. I had paid the cost of the piano I had in my marriage. The surprise was that the outstanding amount of the new loan did not make the latest mortgage payment any higher. It felt like God had paid for the rest of the piano, the difference of the cost of a baby grand from a spinet.

If I had tried to buy a keyboard sooner, my husband who took everything as his, would have ended up with the baby grand. The best part I realized later was that I had cleared out the past negative energies that stopped my prayer from manifesting. I deserved a baby grand piano. I cleaned the channel for the manifestation and it appeared at the right time.

If you have read my prior articles about the Universal Laws, I unconsciously had used The Law of Attraction. My vibrational offering equaled my point of attraction. Timing was the last part of the attraction to manifest. It showed up at the right time for me to enjoy and keep.

Prayer and Meditation raise me into an altered state of consciousness, where the ego cannot dominate my thinking and the solution to my problems can be rational, loving ones. Real prayer is going within and experiencing aligning and merging my energy to the consciousness of the universe. It is the direct way to connect with my guidance and direction.

My actions and thinking are now coming from a loving cause. In a higher vibration, the spiritual energy provides my needs that are the effect of the cause. Life is about cause and effect. I change the motive to get a new result. Love creates loving resolutions and answers. Most people call that beneficent energy God.

Self-searching, prayer, and meditation are very practical. Daily prayer and meditating builds a firm foundation for emotional balance. Correct understanding allows the highest-quality outcome possible. In my guidance to help others, my energy expands and it feels good. That expanded energy manifests into meeting my needs. “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, says, “Here is my secret. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”

Edgar Cayce, The Father of Holistic Health, said, “Mind is the builder,” that spirit is our source and the physical is our result. From his famous quote, I learned to change my mind set to create goodresults, inspiration, or solutions. I tune in through meditation listening for guidance and directions, accepting the results.

I do not pray for myself; my thoughts are not from selfishness, self-centeredness, and fear but to help others. In morning mediation, I hear information for my daily activities, especially for my writing books, this column, articles, and projects needing to be completed. Opportunities to be in service are also offered. Doing the right thing is never wrong. I call myself "God employed". 

It is not always easy to follow my inner messages. Yesterday, I had to approach a new gardener to work in my yard. I never got costs from the two former fellows I interviewed for the work. They just disappeared. So once again, my shy self had to speak up. 

My neighbor mentioned that he had yard maintenance people coming the following day. The best option was to talk with them while they were working next door. I spoke up and we quickly and easily agreed to his starting the next week. I felt a huge sense of relief that it had gone so well. I can apply using God's will in my daily life.

It shows me how practical the spiritual path is. I was hurriedly trying get all my ducks in a row like at the circus-shooting booth. My hasty search to find yard maintenance was not successful; however, the gardener working right in the neighbor's yard was the right one.

Some people call this surrender to the perfect will of God. When I listen to the silent voice inside, my life goes efficiently. Thy Will Be Done shows me that I need to let life happen and not be the director. I give up my ideas for better ones that are rational and productive. Thy will be done, proves to me that it is the easier, softer way.
