Spirituality blog post: Does God Answer prayer?

Praying Woman

 

The bible teaches that for God to answer prayer you must first believe and have faith that God is first able and willing to give you the desires of your heart; but there are ways to improve the chances that God will answer your prayer. A prayer is a special kind of intention. Therefore, the rules that apply to the Power of intentions, which are rules about consciousness, apply. Your prayer will be answered, or not, depending on events happening out of sight – but not out of mind. The mind furnishes the mechanics of making any intention come true. An intention or prayer request, sent to God needs faith to rocket it to the heavens. An intention to graduate at the top of your class or to marry the man of your dreams takes focus, diligence and action. The bible also teaches “Faith  Without Works Is Dead”.

– “What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?”

What makes any intention or prayer come true?

Three vital elements are at work:

1. How deep into the mind is the intention coming from- how badly do you want it?

2. How steady is your focus- do you think about it every day?

3. How fluid is your intention – are you attached to the outcome?

 

When you perfect these three things, the power of intention becomes real and powerful.

1: Depth of awareness – “Like a river that runs fast on the surface but much more slowly near the bottom, the mind is conceived of as both active and still.” Deepak Chopra

The stillness is present, for example, in the space between thoughts. When you are accustomed to experiencing your mind only through activity (i.e., sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts), the silent source of the mind has been missed. The whole point of Eastern meditation practices is to reacquaint a person with this source. The more often you dive into your silent mind, the deeper your intentions are coming from when you aren’t meditating. The bible also teaches that you can find God in the stillness. …

“Then a spirit passed by my face; The hair of my flesh bristled up. It stood still, but I could not discern its appearance; A form was before my eyes; There was silence, then I heard a voice: ‘Can mankind be just before God? Can a man be pure before his Maker?’…” Job 4:15 – 17

Some ways to access this quiet source are: your prayer closet, meditation, calm, peaceful surroundings, minimal mental agitation, stress free living, self-acceptance and self-awareness.

2: Steady mental focus – Calling up an intention is natural to everyone’s mind. The key is that the intention be one-pointed, that is, your desire doesn’t conflict with other desires or get dissipated in mental restlessness. We’ve all experienced moments of knowing exactly what we want and never losing focus as long as our desire holds our attention.

Does God answer prayer? Absolutely, once we are clear and specific about what we ask for, act purposefully, not lose sight of the goal, have confidence and faith, and do the works diligently; then we attract our intentions into our experience. When we tap into the supernatural, all power of God and the Holy Spirit, then we make quantum leaps to achieving our desires and intentions.

What hurts Intentions? Multitasking, mental confusion, conflicted desires, lack of self-knowledge, fantasy and daydreaming, short attention span, a craving to escape the self with drugs or alcohol and finally a lack of belief in God and in yourself.

 

3: Fluid awareness – Do you have an open mind that can adapt to any response from the world? Do you have a mind that is committed to the destination but allows God to map out the route and the stops along the way to the destination? No better example exists than playing a video game, where the player is fiercely intent of scoring points but must be open to every surprising, unexpected event in order to reach a high score. In everyday life, a desire is focused at its inception; but you should let your attachment to it go, and await whatever response comes your way.

In these three elements, as you can see, lies a lifetime of potentiality unfolding into actuality. Every thought has the power of intention behind it.

Every prayer can be answered if you empower it with faith, believe and action. The bible tells us of the paralyzed man who had faith and belief that Jesus can heal him; but Jesus was in a crowded place and he could not get in through the door so he had his helpers knock a hole in the roof of the building and let him down in front of Jesus. Jesus told him immediately that his “sins were forgiven” and he was healed.

nothing is too hard for god

“Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” – Mark 2:3-5

God not only answers prayers but you can access the Universal power of intention and begin co-creating your future. The only issue is how far you are willing to go to cooperate with this ability, to unearth its possibilities, and improve the quality of your life.

5 Ways to Radiate Happiness

The healing influence of happiness travels literally at the speed of light. Like a single inspiring thought that goes out on the internet and reaches millions of people in just a few hours; Happiness multiplies exponentially … Replacing chaos, confusion, and conflict with order, clarity, and peace.”Deepak Chopra

persuit of happiness

Why do we all want to be Happy? Everybody wants to be happy.

Happiness cannot be seen or touched,  it is Spiritual. There are two types of happiness: The first kind of happiness comes from things turning out the way we’d like them to. This is known as happiness for a reason. We say, “I’m happy because I have a family and friends,” or “I’m happy because I am in a relationship,” or “I’m happy because I’m going on vacation,” and so on. This kind of happiness is inherently fleeting because it depends on external reasons that can be taken away from us at any time. Although we tend to avoid thinking about it, we can lose our friends, our job, our savings, our health, and our loved ones at any time. These are temporary, external sources of happiness that come and go like a passing breeze. But, real Happiness can only flow from the inside out. It cannot be achieved by depending on people, things, employment etc. In the movie “show me the money” Tom Cruise made popular the phrase “you complete me” I know it sounds good and we all would like to know that someone feels that way about us; but someone else cannot truly complete us. Only God is our source of true Happiness. He promises to “never leave you or forsake you.

So how do you radiate Happiness from the inside out?

As a Spiritual Life Coach, I have researched the following ways:

  1. Laughter – Laughter is a symptom of spirituality. Laughter is the flow of love coursing through your body. Laughter is the nectar of present moment awareness. Invite more laughter into your life and relish the magic in every moment.

I am a very happy person. I have massive amounts of energy, I laugh frequently and smile naturally all the time. Once in a while something or someone would knock me off my happiness perch; but I don’t linger there. I immediately seek out  my Happy place. Remember the movie “Happy Gilmore”?  You can’t be your best if you are not in your happy place.  My Happy places are: Taking a walk in nature, either on the beach or in the park. When I lived in Toronto, and it was cold outside, I would take a drive, or watch a funny movie and laugh till I cried, or read a love story. You have to know your happy place and go there often. When you play and laugh with abandon, you enter into the present moment, which is the only place where you can experience happiness.

  1. Unconditional love – Love is a spiritual emotion. Physiology has a truly alarming statistic that states that if a mother gives up on a child he or she becomes truly lost. If the entire world gives up on him or her the child would still have hope; but if the mother is still supporting him, regardless of how many people write him/her off, that child can change and turn his or her life around. That is why God hard wired unconditional love into mothers. The Disney movie Maleficent does an awesome job with this theory with the love of a mother substitute! The message, the only true love is the love of a mother! I love Angelina, she is my hero. When you love unconditionally, you access your spiritual realm and radiate happiness from the inside out. The object of your love is able to feel that love and revel in it.

When we don’t practice unconditional love, we experience pain, doubt, and unhappiness. Love isn’t a capricious emotion but is a state of being. It is an experience of unity with all creation. In spirit we are pure love. We don’t have to search outside ourselves for love, because love is our essence.” David Simon

3        Meditation- Allows us to tap into your own inexhaustible source of inner peace, fulfillment, spiritual development, personal development and self- awareness. The essence of meditation is experiencing our innate wholeness, the unity of our body, mind, and spirit. True happiness is an internal state of consciousness that allows us to be happy for no reason at all. It is independent of the circumstances, events, people, and things in our lives. This happiness comes from the realization that our true self isn’t our body, thoughts, emotions, personality, possessions, accomplishments, relationships, or any other time-bound attribute. Our essential nature is pure, unbounded consciousness, also known as the field of all possibilities. The attributes of this field include happiness, love, timelessness, compassion, creativity, wisdom, silence, and grace. This state of consciousness can only be accessed through the stillness of meditation.

4   Replace Fear with Love – One of the clouds that obscure our innate state of happiness and block our spiritual awakening is unnecessary fear and anxiety. This fear is a negative emotion that causes anxiety, inflammation and pain. The root cause of this fear, is because we are afraid of rejection, failure, intimacy, embarrassment, abandonment, loss, the unknown, being judged, being alone, losing control, expressing our true feelings, and so many other things.

Spiritual Life Coaching can help you release the grip that fear has on you by expanding your awareness to the pure potentiality of your true self and nature, which is infinite, whole, and unbounded.

5        Become Conscious – In my book “Becoming Conscious, My Awakening” I write about becoming conscious of my spirituality, becoming conscious of Synchro-destiny, a term this is used to label that every moment is as it should be, and that there are no coincidences in life. Everything is preordained. When you accept this fact, then you will live more in the moment because you realize that in this moment is where miracles happen. The bible says “seek and you will find” if you look for the miracles of life, you will find them and then you will radiate Happiness from the inside out.  Just as a radiant sunrise can be hidden behind the clouds, our inner happiness can become obscured by constricted awareness, limiting thought patterns, and emotional turmoil. Yet no matter how long we have been lost in fear and limitation, we can learn to rise above the clouds of conditioning and awaken to the source of happiness within us.

Seven Levels of Spiritual Fulfillment

Success-Secrets

We are both the source and the recipients of the gifts of the Universe and God.

Spiritual awakening is natural. The process is similar to waking up in the 
morning and opening your eyes to the light. Your light is personal to you 
expressing your inner vision.
Visions come true by merging your inner and outer life.
We all have wishes and dreams to fulfill. For spiritually to be valid, it must be 
useful in bringing fulfillment. There are seven levels of fulfillment. 
When you are fully connected to the light of being which is the light of the 
self, your light shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest 
heavens. This is the light that shines within you!
1: The level of Pure Potential
We are in our essential state, pure consciousness. Pure consciousness is pure
potential. It is the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. When
you discover your essential nature and know who you really are, in that knowing
itself is the ability to fulfill any dream you have; because you are the eternal
possibility, the immeasurable potentiality of all that was, is and will be!
One way to access this field is through the daily practice of silence,
meditation and Life Coaching.

2: Fulfillment from Giving
Your body, mind and the Universe are in constant and dynamic change. Stopping 
the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood. Whenever blood 
stops flowing, it begins to clot, to stagnate. That is why you must give and 
receive in order to keep wealth, affluence, love, respect ...or anything you 
want...Circulating in your life.

I practice not only giving to God, but giving something to everyone I meet. It 
could be a smile, a compliment or a prayer. The most powerful forms of giving 
are the non-material. The gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation 
and love are some of the most precious gifts you can give or receive.

3: Fulfillment from Sowing and Reaping
Everyone has heard the expression "whatever you sow, you shall reap". It is 
obvious that if we want to create happiness in our lives, we must learn to sow 
the seeds that will grow Happiness. Therefore, we must life consciously, making 
good choices. Whether you like it or not, everything that is happening to you at 
this moment is a direct result of the choices you've made in the past. 

You cannot alter the past, but you can make the choice to design your future. 
Start now with the help of a Spiritual Life Coach. The more you bring your 
choices into the level of your conscious awareness, the more you will make 
those choices which are spontaneously correct for both you and those around you. 

4: Fulfillment from Love
When you seek money and power for the sake of the ego, you spend energy chasing 
the illusion of happiness from material things, instead of enjoying the happiness 
of the moment. On the other hand, when your actions are motivated by love, 
your energy multiplies and accumulates and the surplus can be channeled to 
create anything you want; including unlimited wealth.

5: Fulfillment from The Desires of your Heart
The whole Universe, in its essential mature, is the movement of energy and 
information. You can consistently change the energy and information of your own 
Quantum mechanical body and therefore influence the energy and informational 
content of your extended body...your environment, your world... and cause things 
to happen. In other words "You become what you think about, most of the time". The quality 
of your intention on the object of your attention will orchestrate an infinity 
of space-time events to bring about the outcome intended. So, never, never give 
up on your dreams. 

6: Fulfillment from Detachment
Detachment does not mean you give up the intention to create your desire. 
Instead, you give up your attachment to the result. The moment you relinquish 
your attachment to the result and just believe that it will be yours; you will 
have that which you desire. Detachment is based on the unquestioning belief in 
the power of God.
Detachment is also synonymous with wealth consciousness, because with detachment 
there is freedom to create. True wealth consciousness is the ability to have 
anything you want, anytime you want and with little effort. 
Start creating your wealth. Call for a free consultation 

7: Fulfillment from being on Purpose
We have taken manifestation in physical form to fulfill a purpose. There is 
something that you can do better than anyone else in this whole world. There are 
also unique needs. When these needs are matched with creative expression of 
talent, there is a spark that creates affluence. Expressing your talents to 
fulfill needs creates unlimited wealth and abundance.

It is said that "who you seek, is seeking you" my talent is to HELP you in 
discovering your purpose and fulfilling your destiny by creating awareness, 
discovering your essential nature, making conscious choices and co-creating for 
you and your loved ones. So let's connect and create wealth and abundance.
Call for a free consultation today.
