Welcome to your Sunday Sermonette
prepared by Rev Todd Puntolillo
Is prayer meant to be a session of begging?
Is God an old man in the sky that you want
to hear your cries and have compassion on you?
Does that feel right to you? It often works,
but there are higher ways to approach your Creator and Source.
God’s Laws provide for us, not our cries.
The Law of Cause and Effect gives us the opportunity to do things properly and have results that correspond. That is a Law from Our Creator and Source.
Another Law is The Law of Attraction that says our life evolves with our desires.
The higher the desire, the higher the experience that comes into our lives.
A tool for activating these Laws is Affirmations: Affirmations must always be positive. This tool is highly effective. Remember, these are not tools of the will. Force won’t get you where you want to be. Your declarations are meant to attune your thought to the frequency of the desired feeling and result. Expect to see changes. Never stop affirming!
Another great tool is visualization. What the mind sees, it believes and reproduces.
Picture every minute detail. Hold in your mind’s eye the joy; feel it, smell it, taste it. Open your heart to possibility and a miracle is on its way.
A word of caution: don’t overlook anything that is important to you. Don’t generalize. Don’t settle. You WILL manifest. Be sure you get what you really want. I have done this and have created the precise results I visualized, so I am not making idle promises.
THESE LAWS DO NOT SUPPORT GREED OR LUST! They support your highest and best only!
You, as a spiritual consciousness, are extremely powerful in your own experience and have the potential to influence the world by your consciousness, energy and presence.
It is very wrong to visualize or affirm for other people. That is meddling and will cause you the kind of problems that will send you back begging for help. Bless them and release them to a loving God, not a feisty, grumpy old man in the sky.
A higher recognition of the spirituality and eternality of God Consciousness will lift your experience dramatically!
Meditation stills the human mind and lets the Divine work through you. Life is not about willing things, it is about allowing God’s Laws to work through you!
My personal version of prayer is to write letters to my Divine Father-Mother and wait for the answers. This is asking and listening, and it seems to work exceptionally well for me when I quietly tune in.
I make it a point to ask for guidance rather than beg for a particular outcome. Remember that if you ask, answers will somehow come. They may come in dreams or flashes of brilliance, in visions, or just an inner knowing. It does not matter. Put time aside daily to ask and listen.
Trust that the Divine has more answers than you have questions. Raise your consciousness and energy and you’ll raise everything about your life and be a blessing to all who know you.
My blessings go with you!
