Healing: The Power of Prayer & Where to start

39a95572-9d38-49de-87e4-842eac267f7aWe have all been on quite the healing journey. I know personally, a lot of past issues have made my own healing process more challenging. Being a believer in faith and in the power of prayer means not having to understand and almost having blind faith about your life. How it that, for example, we could go our entire is lives without seeing an elephant and still know they exist?  Many people cannot wrap their heads around the concept of knowing something exists without ever seeing it. Isn’t that the base core of faith? It can be difficult as it’s easy to get frustrated and see other people getting better while you feel you are stuck in this never ending process. Someone once told me, “the harder the process, the greater the purpose.” Along my own process, I have been desperate and seeking a miracle. If I could have, I would have gone to some remote island and drunk the water if someone told me it would help. I’ve watched online ministers and thrown my hands in the air believing with all my heart.

Recently, I had an amazing opportunity to see The Ancient Crystal Skull “Synergy” & caretaker Sherry Whitefield. I was introduced to crystal skulls about two years ago and then soon started my own little collection. I have to be honest; years ago I did not really understand what skulls were all about and what they represented. Skulls are actually incredible spiritual tools, and it would be through this experience I would learn just how much. Synergy is known as the skull of Joy, Laughter & Compassion. Synergy’s energetic frequency is so strong, that it can be felt over 40 miles away. If one person raises their vibration, that same person can impact 10,000 other people to raise their vibrations and so on. A few things the skull lets you do is leave behind, your fears, worry etc, so you can than expand to who you are meant to be. An experience with Synergy and Sherry is really a life changing experience where I have personally experienced deep impactful healing. For more information about The Ancient Crystal Skull Synergy and its keeper Sherry please visit their website http://www.crystal-skull.com/.  I fully believe that all you need to do to pray is speak from the heart and God will listen. I have often searched for healing prayers of all kinds and recently I came across the one below from inspirational author Rebecca Barlow Jordan. There was something about it, where suddenly it was all the words that were in my heart but could not express. I hope you enjoy it as well and find comfort in its words. Close your eyes, and let the prayer heal what you desire and raise your vibration so you can then go and make the impact Sherry and Synergy talks about.

“God, you know me so well. You created me. You know the number of hairs on my head, and you even know the thoughts conceived in my heart before I ever vocalize them. You’ve told us to come to you and ask for every need of life. You are Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals, and you have the final word on my destiny, the number of years I’ll live and serve you on earth.

I’m coming to you today as your child, longing to hear from you and asking for your divine healing. There’s so much I don’t understand about life. But I do know that with one touch, one word, you can make me whole. Please forgive me of my sins, cleanse me of my unrighteousness, and begin your healing from the inside out.

I don’t always know what your will is Lord, especially in times like now, when I desperately seek your face. I offer you no promises, no bargains, no deals to exchange for my health. I simply bow my heart before you to tell you the desire of my heart: that I want to spend as many years as I can loving you here, loving others, and wanting to become more like you. However you choose to accomplish that is up to you-and okay with me. If you use doctors to provide healing, give them wisdom to know what to do. Regardless of how you accomplish it, the healing you give is always miraculous. And you deserve all the praise.

I absolutely believe you have the power to heal. You demonstrated that on earth, and you still heal in miraculous ways today. Even when my faith is weak, you say it is enough, and my love for you is strong. And I know you already hold my heart and life in your hands. It’s up to you. If I can bring you more glory through healing, then that’s what I ask for. That’s what I desire.

But if your answer is no, or not now, I know that your grace is sufficient for me. Ultimately, I want your will to be my will. I look forward to spending an eternity with you. But Lord, if you have planned still more for me to do here on this earth, I not only need and want your physical healing, Lord, but a thorough, deep-down cleansing and strengthening-a whole-hearted renewal of all that I am. Because all that I am is yours. Use this trial to strengthen me from a “what-if” faith to a “no-matter-what” faith. And no matter what, I choose to honor you and give you glory.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.” – Rebecca Barlow Jordan

In my own personal meditation practice, I use a reflective meditation for any health issues I may be facing. I find that, not only does it decrease stress in the body, but it gives my body permission to heal and sometimes that is all we have to do in order to rise above our health challenges. I wanted to share this technique with all of you, so I created a Reflective Meditation for Healing mp3 download that you can use on your phone, or music device of your choice and listen to it as many times as you need.

Autumn Equinox: Time to Harvest

eeb91e25-ea3e-45de-928b-3aeb57e074d2

“In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day… And God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. God made the two great lights – the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night – and the stars. God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.” – The Bible

The Autumn Equinox also known as Mabon brings balance back between the light and the dark. The Spring Equinox brings in balance of the light and the Autumn Equinox brings in balance of the dark. Both the light and the dark co-exists because of each other. The balance of the darkening of the sky gives us time to reflect on all that we are thankful for, to process all of the energy and knowledge we learned during the previous seasons of abundance, and how we can continue to integrate that throughout the changing of the season.

Autumn is a time of Harvest, and the Equinox is a time to fill up your spiritual basket. Think of the last 4 months of the year as a harvest period. You were growing and learning new things about yourself and your life purpose and manifested how you would reach that goal of living on your path. Perhaps you took an energy class or started to meditate, or learned about spiritual grounding. There may also be some lessons you learned along the way and patterns that you were finally able to alter. Look back at all those things you learned and decide which items you are going to put in your basket and carry with you down your life path. Sometimes it can be hard to release some of these items, and maybe some of the lessons involved co-workers, friends, or people from your past. When you continue to place those kinds of items such as energy from the past of someone you may have parted with earlier in the year, it is only going to weigh down your basket and make less room for another tool you may need. Spend the week around the Equinox visualizing your basket and what you want to move forward with. It is ok to put certain things in and then take them out and reorganize it as you go. You may think you are almost done and then find something you really want to take with you on the next phase of your journey. That means you have to take something else out. It is ok to let it go, and if you are simply not ready that is ok also. Bring it with you and know that when the time is right for you, you can remove it anytime you want.

Here are some other ways that you can celebrate the Autumn Equinox & Mabon:

  • Meditate: With the Energies of the season shifting, spending some time meditating can be a good way for you to bring some the balancing and harmonizing energies into your energy field. You can also use meditation as a way to help you decide what goes into your spiritual harvest basket.
  • Go Apple Picking: Apples are often a symbol of the fall season, and filled with many spiritual meanings. Spending some time harvesting the apples, connecting to something that grew from the earth will not only help clear your mind, and increase your spiritual energy. It will also help ground you. You can also work with the apples and incorporate them into your diet for the fall such as apple cider, apple pie, apple jam, apple butter, apple bread. The list goes on and on. Apples are truly a sign of harvesting so if including apples into your Equinox activities is something you decide to do, why not make it a celebration itself and make it a family or friends event as well.
  • Clear & Clean your space: Just like spring cleaning it is a good idea to do a fall cleaning. Not only is it a good idea to do a thorough cleaning session in your home, or office, but you will want to clear the energy in your space to. Using sage, sweetgrass, holy water, palo santo or any other smudging tool you may have will not only help break up any stagnate energy, but clear it away and help you raise the vibrations around you, truly making your environment ready for the changing of the seasons.
  • Participate in an Autumn Equinox Ceremony: An Autumn Equinox Ceremony can be a really fun way to participate in the magic of the season. It can also be a great family event. There are many kinds of ceremonies, from drumming circles, bonfires, blessing circles and so forth. Any kind of Autumn Equinox Ceremony will also help you raise your energetic vibration and jump start the blessings that the fall months have to offer.
  • Connect with Nature & Honor Mother Earth: There is something about the crisp air in the fall that brings in clarity and an oneness to the Earth. While spending time in nature, whether it be a walking trail, mountain, ocean or your back yard you are making a conscious effort to connect with the earth’s energy. A great way to honor that connection would be to leave an offering to the earth. Things like birdseed, acorns, sticks etc. are all good items to leave as an offering and express your thankfulness to Mother earth. They are also good items for the animals as they start to stock up for their hibernation period.

Above all this season, express your gratitude for the lessons and the blessings of the past seasons and all that you have learned and gifts you have been given by the Universe. September is the month of Universal Love, Life Purpose, Soul Mission and Higher Perspective. The Universe is really asking you to take the energy of the Autumn Equinox and begin to live a soulful life and step into your purpose. You are in a true season of Harvest and it is time that you learn to appreciate the dark just as much as the light. Without one or the other, how would we know the difference or learn to appreciate what we have.
