Prayer and Meditation. Medicine for the Mind, Body and soul
I have recently taken to a form of prayer and mediation. I find a quiet place, sit up straight, and plant my feet firmly so that the world’s positive energy flows up through the ground and my body. I endeavor to clear my mind of all distractions and close my eyes. I visualize myself relaxed and smiling as the hand of the Lord touches and begins to heal me. Heal me physically, heal me mentally and heal me spiritually. Then I pray these words.
Heavenly Father, I ask that you lay your healing hands upon my heart so that it is made stronger and able to carry the blood of life that you have blessed us with through out my entire body. I ask this Heavenly Father so that I may live a long life to shout your praise to all who will hear me. I ask this Heavenly Father so that through the special gifts you have bestowed upon me; I can share them with others so that they too can see your greatness and be motivated and inspired to help others reach for the stars. I ask this so that I can be an example to never give up your faith and trust in you even when it appears things are not going as well as they would like at the moment. I ask this Heavenly Father so that I may awake each day blessed with the senses you have so blessed me with to take in and appreciate the beauty and wonders of this magnificent world you have created for us. I ask this Heavenly Father so that I may continue to enjoy the fellowship and love of family, friends, and even strangers who you have so seen fit to place in my path as I travel this spiritual journey. I ask this Heavenly Father because, in my faith, I know that while man can help me maintain my health, mind, and spirituality, only you can truly heal my mind, body, and soul. I ask all of this in your name Heavenly Father. Amen
Then I open my eyes pause for a moment to allow the energy of the Lord to travel through my body. After a brief moment of silence and reflection with the energy of the Lord flowing through me, I close my eyes again and say the following: “The Lord is healing me I am getting stronger every day.” I repeat this for 5, 10, 15 minutes, whatever I am most comfortable with that day. When I am done, I remain sitting quietly, letting the power of the Lord flow throughout my body. Finally, I stand up and go about my day relaxed, renews, and encouraged by the knowledge that I am in God’s world and in his world nothing is impossible.
Visualize not what we are told is possible but what we are told isn’t
I came down to the promenade, where I am currently undergoing physical rehabilitation by myself this evening. I Sat down and endeavored to clear my mind. I began to count each breath I took as a gazed out at the Hudson River. A sense of calm overtook me, and I could feel the weight of my worries being lifted.
I genuinely believe that while traditional medicine and a healthy diet are essential in MAINTAINING my health. It is only through my mind and my spirituality will I HEAL. Doctors may say the reversal of my condition is not possible that through medication, I can control it but never eradicate it. Still, the truth is miracles happen every day, and only the Lord has the power to say what is and what isn’t possible.
God has blessed us all with a mind unlike any of his other creations. It is up to us to unlock our minds’ full potential, to allow it to visualize not only what we already know but to let in and imagine what we don’t know. To envision what science has conditioned us to believe in the impossible.
Moving forward, I will endeavor each day to allow my mind to step outside of my physical being and visualize my heart beating strongly and being healthy. With God’s light guiding me, I believe I will get better. He has brought me this far. He has given me a new life. September 1st represents my birthday, My first in this awaken state of spirituality and mind, and I plan on taking full advantage of the second life
He has blessed me with.
