Is It Prayer, Self-Empowerment, or Just Good Luck?

I decided to write about this because how we access the larger energy field seems to be at the heart of overcoming fear, gaining self –esteem, and in general getting more to go right than goes wrong.

In my book I write about learning slowly, with trepidation about manifestation, and then consciously testing it a little bit at a time.  I started small with things like parking spaces, and slowly worked myself up to a huge real estate development idea that easily could have bankrupted me. I memorialized these events and then together with Dr. Kerry Monick prepared a short guidebook.  One of the main themes of the guidebook is getting people to recall their major desires in life,  and to record when those desires were fulfilled. The time in between is referred to as the lag time. So much often happens in that interim period that we simply chalk it up to hard work and some lucky breaks. But what else might be in the mix?

For centuries mystics and the eastern religions have talked about Universal laws  and how they operate. Lately in the West the field of quantum physics has begun to give us much more insight into the idea of a universal field of energy and what some of its properties seem to be. There is the documentary film “What The Bleep Do We Know” and its subsequent  companion, “Down The Rabbit Hole.” There is the book The Field by Lynne McTaggert and her follow up called the Intention Experiment which shows the direction science is moving.

Greg Braden, writing in a book called the “The Isaiah Effect: Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophecy” suggests that perhaps we at one time possessed a more empowering way to relate to this energy field  by sending out feeling images to the Universe, Here is the excerpt:

“Recent translations of texts written by the ancient Essenes, the mysterious authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, invite us to embrace our lost mode of prayer as a consciousness that we become, rather than something that we do upon occasion. In words that are as simple as they are elegant, we are reminded to be “surrounded” by the answer to our prayers and “enveloped” by the conditions that we choose to experience. In the modern idiom, this description suggests that to effect change in our world, we are invited to first have the feelings within us that the change has happened around us. Once we allow the qualities of peace in our mind, and fuel our prayer through feelings of peace in our body, our lost mode of prayer states that the outcome has already happened.  In words that are as simple as they are elegant, we are reminded to be “surrounded” by the answer to our prayers and “enveloped” by the conditions that we choose to experience.

In this sense feeling what the projected outcome will produce in us is another way of putting an order into the field.

It is one thing to petition and another thing to order. And if two of us are involved in a zero sum game with only one winner possible, and we both petition to win, one of us will lose. But if we are not in a zero sum contest it seems to be a different issue.  If we are feeling a state of joyfulness as a condition we want, then joyfulness maybe able to appear much quicker as there maybe little to no outside impediments.

Maybe the most successful people simply practice connecting with these feeling states more than others.  As we become  more aware, more mindful,  of these connections, we may   start producing “more good luck than we ever thought possible.”  Start practicing this idea and see what happens. See if your creative decision making improves.
