The Power of Prayer
In the study of the evolution of the cosmos and sacred sites, more through direct experience than academically, I have come to understand that each living being and each energy centre on the living being, Mother Earth, is an aperture to the Divine so that the Divine can come to experience and know herself through the flowing through and interaction with himself. A pool of water is a pool of water until it cascades through the skies and tumbles down through the earth. Through these experiences water comes to know and experience itself, just like with the water of our soul, droplets of the Divine. Now the next I am going to offer without proof, but allow you the testing ground of your own truth as registered by your heart. As beings we do not all follow this path yet it is a progression of the Divine through more complex and then simpler forms for a life stream to evolve firstly embodied through simple cells, then animals on to human form and then into celestial form first becoming a planet, a young sun, through the spectrum of evolution and life span of a star and then exploding in a supernova to impregnate her life through the galaxy and become that star cluster. There is no death just change in form. I have come to know that these celestial bodies are truly beings further along the path of evolution. In fact sometimes they send an offshoot of their being to inhabit human form on Earth. I would not be surprised if the human population peaks at the same number as the stars in the galaxy.
That is an aside, I return to my point, our being and the beings within us are in a constant state of evolution growing to allow more light to shine through us and them and so for the planet and her energy centres known to us as sacred sites. We may bring more of this Divine light through, through the power of prayer. We can pray to higher beings to shower us with light, they themselves are apertures to the divine, we can pray to nature for her to shower us with light, she is an aperture to the divine. We can ask humans and gurus and lamas and teachers and avatars even in the form of animals to bring us wisdom and healing (shower us with the light) through the aperture to the Divine they are. When we pray we bring Divine light into our being (all the levels of our energy body) and of course most grossly our physical body. This Divine light reorders us on every level, physically bringing health to our auras and a sheen to our skin. And more than restore us to balance it will even allow us to grow and evolve into higher states of being and form, the physical effects of this will be manifest through ever more sophisticated sacred geometrical forms. One of the most magnificent manifestations of this is still to this day often manifested by high lamas and practitioners in Tibet, where they spend much of their time in ardent and specific prayer that reconfigure their body so that once the spirit has left the physical body and this body is cremated, many relics remain, pearls and mini stupas and statues that have manifested within the physicality of the body. These relics are the manifestation of profound prayers, prayers made form that have created an incredible energy field.
Most of us today are familiar with the great work of Doctor Masaru Emoto of Japan, whose work in showing the manifestation of prayers and emotions in water crystals (ice) has made obvious the power of prayer and importance of cleansing our emotions and having a beneficial intent (focus of the mind). Dr Emoto has shown clearly how there is a physical manifestation to thought forms, and intentions/prayers. This physical manifestation can be negative or positive. The two pictures is a crystal of polluted water from Fujiwara dam and then showing its form and spirit transformed through a Buddhist prayer.
Through positive prayer we shower our being with divine energy, which will flush out darker lower energies that have accumulated through negative thoughts, past karmas and environmental contamination in all forms including emotional. We bring well being to the body as well as becoming attractive to positive energy, people and circumstances. Try it now, stop whatever you are doing, put the magazine down and pray. Pray how best you pray, pray with a personal connection to the divine, if nature is how you experience the divine pray to mother earth to wash your energy system clean and bring divine order to your being, you may ask this of a master; Jesus, Mohammed, Mother Mary, Buddha and many more or your prayer may be a call out to the energy of life within the Universe. However you access the energy of the divine pray that she pour into you and through you.
Ahh that’s nice! Now we can take our prayers one step further we can become a walking sacred site, an aperture pouring divine light onto the planet and those we come in contact with. Maybe a trickle at first, we don’t have to be a big powerful storm (for sure they knock things over and lift things up, yet it is the cool soft breeze which is constant and gentle that really shapes the earth). So stop again, whether you be in a coffee shop or on the bus, and pray and really feel the energy flowing through you like rivers along your magnetic channels. Pray that the divine flow through you like a many headed hose, flow through you to redefine the environment around you, restore order and balance to the nature, wash the trauma or stress from people, make the patterns in the air happy and new. Just as the water crystals can be changed from sludge to beauty and radiate that charm so can the air, the pavement, the rocks the trees the molecules within humans allow this grace to flow through you.
Just as there are more powerful and serene sacred sites in the world and there are more powerful and blissful stars in the sky so there are more evolved beings who embody prayer to a greater extent. Just by coming in contact with their picture or the thought of them brings grace into your life, the prayer flows into you. To come into their physical energy field is a grace beyond measure, the effects of their profound energy field is like a sun to the blackest of nights. Their energy field will do to your being as Emoto’s prayers to the ice. One such being is His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Australia will be blessed by his presence once more this month, June 2011. Please do yourself a favour and all of your ancestors and descendents to come, take the time to be in his energy field, to transform your being and all those you are to come in contact with you, be ignited by his prayer, add it to your own and carry this flame of hope and goodness to reignite virtue and good values everywhere. May the divine bless you now and always.
Gyuto Monks of Tibet
Seven Tibetan monks form the Gyuto monastery once in Tibet now making its home in the Himalayan foothills of India will be opening proceedings for the Dalai Lama in Perth at the Burswood Dome on June 19th, they will then have a programme at Kulcha in Fremantle and Margaret River the following week. The Gyuto monks study the high tantric practices of Tibetan Buddhism, which are prayer rituals designed to transform the energy of the person performing them and more specifically the teaching space. To be present when one of their rituals is taking place (a ritual is an elaborate prayer) is a deeply peaceful and transformative experience as demonstrated by the change in water crystal structure. Their rituals include chanting, elaborate sand mandalas, meditation, healing prayers and more. For full details of the tour itinerary visit www.gyuto.va.com.au
