Every thought is a prayer. And it is the dominant thoughts that God answers.
Every word we speak is a prayer. And it is the words we dominantly speak out that God answers.
Every emotion we feel is a prayer. And is the dominate emotions we feel that God answers.
Every act we do is a prayer. And it is the dominate actions we partake in that God answers.
This is, in its simplicity, the basis of the New Thought movement.
Of course you replace God for “Universe” or “Life” or whatever you would want to call the non-physical entity that is considered by scientist as Source Energy.
So how does this apply to you? In the context of the New Thought movement, we attract people and things and circumstances and events and outcomes in our lives at some level (by word and/or thought and/ or feeling and/ or deed/ action).
We have so constructed our lifestyle in such a way that we do this (attracting the events in our lives) by default – this is still obviously within the framework of the New Thought perspective.
In short, all the things that you & I are complaining about or are experiencing, was attracted by us at some plane. But hold on, before you fuel up on me, let me tell why this notion, if tested, can benefit you for the better.
Because if what I wrote is true, you would just need to adjust the way you speak or think or feel or act so that you can receive something better that what you are currently experiencing. The saying, “change begins within” can never be truer.
You can cut this down to a science: whatever it is I am getting was due to a prior dominate mood, speech, act or thinking. So if you do NOT like what you are currently getting from life, change what you are giving.
But I won’t bullshit you into thinking that when you think & feel & speak of the life you want today, all that you are asking (praying/ affirming) for will be delivered to you tomorrow.
Remember, you spent the most part of your life thinking that life, as it is for you today, is just how life is and there is no changing it. So turning around telling yourself the opposite, it’s only natural for you to come across some resistance regarding this “new thinking.”
I say keep at it, when the municipality comes over to cut off your electricity, don’t go and play victim. Acknowledge its existence. See it as an inconvenience but CONTINUE affirming, or even writing out, in present tense, how you life should be. Regardless of things that challenge your conjuring.
Every day of our lives we are continuously shovelled with small amounts of unwanted nuisances but that doesn’t mean we should focus all our energy on piling it up as it happens. Recognise that is comes with the package of being human and find ways of using it as the fertilizer of your garden of life. Use it as a feedback mechanism of finding out at what level of attraction you aiming at.
If what you receive is not what you are wanting, alter what you are praying to confirm with what you prefer receiving.
And as mentioned, prayer equals:
