Prayer is the foundation of success. In the most carefully controlled scientific study ever performed on the effects of prayer on healing, cardiologist Randolph Byrd, formerly a University of California professor, showed that prayer is a powerful force in healing and that sometimes it can make the difference between life and death for the sick person. The sages tell us that for a prayer to be effective, faith in the Divine, concentration of the mind, and positive thinking is necessary prerequisites before, during and after the prayer.
If one prays for success and at the same time holds thoughts of failure within, the prayer will not be answered. Sages tell us that the mind is the transmitter of prayers. Thus, a prayer transmitted by a restless mind is akin to broadcasting over a broken transmitter. To receive God’s answer to our prayers, sages provide the following instructions for prayers: Meditate before praying to calm restless thoughts. Keep the body still throughout meditation. “Be still and know you are God.” According to yogic literature, the nerve center between the eye-brows (ajna chakra) is the transmitter of prayer and the heart is the receiver of God’s answer to the prayer. If a prayer is properly transmitted, God’s answer appears in the form of subtle feeling(s) arising in the heart following the prayer. To pray, focus attention at the center between the eyebrows and say the prayer mentally with the deepest devotion of your heart. Repeat the prayer until it becomes one with your consciousness. Always pray to God as His child, who demands the rightful share of all God’s bounties. Never pray to God as a beggar. I am a firm believer in Meditation and manifestation. I believe that you can change anything in your life if you wish to do so. Below are some techniques that may help you in reaching the pentacle point of your life and your aspirations.
Candle Prayers: In the evening find a quite place where you are able to read and relax. The following candles will give you what you need they need to be anointed with certain oils to give you the best possible solution also take a plain white piece of paper and write your aspiration on the paper and place the candle of your choice over the paper. I recommend the following bible verses to chant after your affirmation: 2 Samuel 22:45-51,Isaiah 54:17,Psalm 86,Psalm 35,psalm 91,John 15,John 1. These are your options. White can be anointed with protection oil and wisdom or lavender. Peace, healing tranquility. Green- Come to me oil or Prosperity oil or lavender (prosperity). Yellow candle should be anointed with Protection oil or lavender (Institution and friendliness). Orange- Wisdom oil or come to me – brings luck. I do not recommend red/pink for anyone that is going through problems at this time. Red is too fire and pink is passion that is difficult when one has not healed completely. After the candles have completely burnt out. Than bury the candle wax somewhere
Often in our lives we just need a little guidance to get us centered. Many of you are already aware I spend a lot of time doing poojas and meditations and Reiki. I try to find time early mornings around 4:30 to 5:30 and late night between 11:00-12:00. For those who feel the chaos of everyday life and just don’t feel centered at times below are some techniques that will help you find peace within your self and manifest sanctuary in your everyday life. Especially these planetary retrograde for those fixed signs do not forget to meditate and clean your home and burn frankincense and myrrh.
Meditation the proper way: Meditation provides the ability to silence the mind and experience the inner self. Meditation restores natural power to the mind just as charging restores power to a worn out battery. Meditation destroys worries, fear, and stress that people experience in the “cut-throat” competitive environment of modern societies. When the mind becomes quiet, the body becomes quiet too and knows how to repair itself. The following simple technique may be used to meditate daily: Sit in a cross-legged pose on the floor or on a chair with feet flat on the ground. Keep the spine straight and fully relax the body and mind. Your overall feeling should be as if you are sitting on the beach of a calm ocean, on a starry cool night of the summer. Close the eyes and gently focus attention at the center between the eyebrows (ajna chakra). Breathe normally (don’t force breathing in any way) and say mentally Rã (ã as in father) while inhaling and Mã (ã as in father) while exhaling. Practice this meditation technique 20 to 30 minutes twice daily, in the mornings and evenings, before meals. At the end of the meditation, with the eyes closed and attention focused at the center between the eyebrows, say the following prayer, as recommended by Paramahansa Yogãnanda: “I will reason, I will create, I will do everything I set my mind to do, but Oh Lord, guide my creative abilities to do the right thing that I should do.” Prayer and what it does. Prayer is a very powerful tool available to man to purify the mind and gain spiritual strength.
Meditation Techniques: Purchase some relaxing music (I prefer Indian flute or Fairies). Lay in your bed completely relaxed. Close your eyes and visualize God by you as if you were having a conversation. These are the words you can possibly say to him:” I love you, I think you are beautiful, we have shared so many wonderful moments, I love everything about you. God shine the light upon my soul and the guardian angles give me peace and harmony. Give me clarity, honesty and love that I deserve” Spiritual Baths: Fill your bathtub with some lavender oil and luke warm water. Place some sandalwood incense somewhere in your bathroom for you to get a sense of touch. Cover your eyes with a white cloth that is dipped in lavender oil. Relax and release the tension and the negative energy which maybe causing conflicts in your life
