As Santa’s and Saturnalia’s little helper, I’m moving on to Day Three of the 12 Gifts of Enlightenment. Today’s magical, mystical and memorable gift for the metaphysician in your life is… Gift Number Three: Connecting Heaven and Earth with the Gift of Prayer
Behold the universal power of prayer, whether you refer to it as prayer, affirmation, manifestation, or direct contact, the results show that it works. What we think, what we focus on, what we speak aloud and shout to the heavens above, all is heard and reflected back down on the earth plane. Scientists are studying the energetic results of prayer, from how it affects healing, when groups of people pray for a person’s return to health, to global consciousness and focused thoughts and their effect on objects and circumstances.
On the Explore Your Spirit show, I interviewed Lynne McTaggart, author of The Intention Experiment and The Field. In Lynne’s investigative research, she worked with a group of frontier scientists who discovered an enormous field of quantum energy called the Zero Point Field. This discovery has spring boarded into research on how cells communicate and how spiritual healing, prayer and psychic abilities work. As Lynne pondered these findings, she asked the question… Can our thoughts heal the world? With this question, she began the world’s largest mind over matter experiments. Lynne’s work is inspiring scientists, scholars, healers and laypeople around the world and her work was mentioned in Dan Brown’s new best selling novel, The Lost Symbol, where Dan writes:“…human consciousness, as Noetic author Lynne McTaggart described it, was a substance outside the confines of the body. A highly ordered energy capable of changing the physical world. Katherine (Solomon) had been fascinated by McTaggart’s book ‘The Intention Experiment’, and her global, Web-based study – theintentionexperiment.com – aimed at discovering how human intention could affect the world”. – Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol (Random House, 2009).
Her latest global experiment (and there’s still time for you to participate) is her Water over Wine Experiment which begins in January 2010 or join in on her Intention of the Week experiment. Now is the time, to be part of the change you wish to see in the world.
In this season of thoughtfulness, selflessness and giving, let us turn our thoughts and prayers to our beautiful home. Author Karen Speerstra has created a lovely book entitled The Green Devotional: Active Prayers for a Healthy Planet , (RedWheel/Weiser/Conari) which includes prayers, quotes, essays and poems from Oscar Wilde, St. Francis of Assisi, Rachel Carlson, Thich Nhat Hanh, Dean Koontz, Caitlin and John Matthews and many other inspirational people from around the world. An uplifting and thought provoking read, the book allows us to turn to any page to receive a daily dose of inspiration and guidance and is dedicated to inspire humanity to reverse the man-made environmental destruction of earth.
The Green Devotional connects with the natural elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water and expands outwardly into the energy of Time, Space and Essence. Karen Speerstra weaves a powerful primer, calling forth voices from around the world, past and present, to inspire and remind humanity about the power of prayer and what miracles can occur when readers combine the energy of prayer with positive action. For the metaphysically inspired person on your list, this is an endearing gift which can be enjoyed cover to cover, as well as flipped open to a random page to receive a daily message.
