Prayer

“Prayer and love are learned in the hour when prayer has become impossible and your heart has turned to stone. If you have never had any distractions you don’t know how to pray. For the secret of prayer is a hunger for God and for the vision of God, a hunger that lies far deeper than the level of language or affection.”    Thomas Merton

Prayer gives us hope.  Whereas meditation unfolds the wings contained deep within the heart, prayers unlocks the cocoon to inspire flight.  We silently listen and quietly observe through meditation.  Prayer helps us find lasting value and soulful embrace

It is our belief that prayer is the manner with which we each speak to God.  It is a means to have dialogue with that which we consider having greater power and influence over our lives.  While meditation is how we can clear our minds and open our hearts to the inner voice dwelling deep within, prayer holds the participants ability to will his spirit in a way that speaks to the forces of life we call God.  It is through the direction of this personal free will that we undertake and make the effort to pray. 

 Many of those throughout history have undertaken efforts to pray only to be dismayed at the lack of response, affect, or change in life circumstances.  They are told that when prayer is left unanswered it is not due to a lack of the confirmation that God or a greater power exists, but that circumstances within the individuals life need to be altered such as sin or karma.  Therefore, we propose that response to prayer is not of great importance in the immediate moment of prayer.  It is first significant that we find the courage to begin prayer.

We look at prayer as the other half of a coin containing meditation on the flip side.  The victory held and contained in prayer as well as meditation can be found in the effort to implement; that is the effort of directing ones free will toward answers to life’s questions outside of the realm of the laws and science of this world.  Just as we can not measure the depth of ones love, we can not measure the importance or value of prayer.  The farmer does not understand the workings of the seed and its DNA structure.  He only relies upon his faith in understanding that through the planting of the seed, he can sustain the physical lives of himself and his loved ones.

             “There is a voice that doesn’t use words.”   Rumi

It is in the faith the farmer has in a single seed, that we encourage the practice of prayer just as that of meditation.  The farmer understands that the seed will not bear fruit in a single day.  It is through the continual efforts which the farmer directs in the sustaining of the plant’s growth in which fruit is rewarded.  It is with this faith of things unknown that the farmer relies.

We each need to refrain from looking for immediate results or responses to our efforts in prayer.  In this attempt for immediate results we are truly deaf to the language of the heart, the dialogue of the soul.  We must understand that we cannot only listen with our ears.  We need to hear and trust in the silent words of faith.   We need to have the faith of the farmer to rely on his daily and consistent efforts.  It is through consistency of practice we must rely. 

Thus through the continued efforts to express our will through prayer do we find the unfolding of the great majesty of life.  There is far more available to us in this world than meets the eye.  Take the time to sit quietly and discover the beauty and magic within.  To do this, we must first quiet the mind and open the heart.  Listen to the voice of the heart. It speaks in a very different language, a language that cannot be heard with the ears, but only with the heart.  This is the language of God.  God listens to our hearts and that which emanates from it.  With an open heart we become like the farmer with his seeds.  The mystery of life then travels from our heart and into our prayer.  Our prayers then take flight and our journey  through life now just begins.  We discover that we have never been alone.  We discover that we have always been loved.  We become aware of the beauty and magic of God and how our spirit has always been one with His Spirit. If we would only be persistent in letting go and finding the trust held in hope. Silently listen and quietly observe the lasting value waiting deep within the wings of the heart.  Hope then fulfills its unspoken promise through God’s loving embrace.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” 

– Max Lucado  .

Blessing Your Food by gowithharmony.com

Bless Your Food for Healthier and Happier You

When you bless your food before eating your pure positive intention that you send out doesn’t only affect your food .  Whenever you feel grateful you are giving thanks from your heart.  Emotion of gratitude has a very high vibration.  
It activates positive emotions and responses from people around you and from the Universe.  Feeling grateful is the best emotion you can choose to feel at any moment.  It can literally transform your life. 

Many don’t realize that your gratitude also blesses all who were involved in your food’s journey like farmers, drivers, grocers and store clerks.   Your gratefulness even reaches the mother Earth,  the rain, the soil and all that is involved  in producing a great harvest and this incredible bounty. 

 

Bless Your Food And Pick the Better Choice Whenever You Can.

We all know that certain foods feel and taste so much better comparing to others.  Fresh, raw, sun ripen fruit or freshly squeezed juice has taste you will never forget and will always crave for.  Apples, strawberries and tomatoes picked from your  own garden have vibrant colors and luscious tastes that keep you happily planting your own garden over and over again.  

Why some foods taste so alive and different?  

It’s the energy of the food.  The energy absorbed from the sun, moon, wind and rain combined with nutrients from the soil  that give the food its incredible flavor and healing powers.    The vibration of this type of food is incredible.  When  you enjoy eating it this energy giving high vibration and all its nutrients are absorbed by every cell in your body for incredible benefits. 

 

All Living Things Have a Distinctive Energy Field Around Them.  

Blessing Further Increases This Energy

Foods that are closest to their natural state have very high vibrations.  They are grown in the most natural conditions like in your own garden or by responsible farmers. 

On the other side, toxicity has a large impact on your vibrations and we must do our best to reduce its impact within our bodies and our environment.  Foods that have been grown quickly, with use of harsh pesticides in depleted soils,  harvested while still green and not fully ripe, transported over long distances and stocked on shelves for days have very low 
vibration left to provide to your body.  
 
These foods have almost almost no taste and no smell left, which tells you they have almost no vibration left to feed your body.  Many of these lower vibration foods are further made into processed foods with added food additives, wrapped in plastic and  later heated up in microwaves.  

I’m sure you can see that these types of food can only fill your belly but they can’t nourish
you with life giving energy and nutrients.   

 

High energy foods keep your body nourished and going at full throttle.  And they keep your mind clear and your thoughts positive.  

Low energy foods keep you sluggish and negative.  Even if you eat a lot your body will ask for more.  Many of us simply misunderstand our body’s signals  Our body is asking for more high vibration foods ~ for life giving energy foods and not for more processed and low energy foods that we keep feeding it.

 

Do you feel the vibrational difference?  Can you imagine how your and your spirit feels after eating natural high energy foods or after eating processed or GMO foods?

Once you replace your diet with living foods your body will rebalance and you will find real satisfaction and happiness again. 

As you can see if you want to raise your vibration, your energy and feel alive and healthy, do your best to eat whole foods  that have high vibrations to start with.  Find and support responsible local farms, shop local food markets, plant your own  garden or grow your own sprouts to add to your daily smoothies or salads.  Anything you can do from where you are right now.  No excuses please!  Change IS exciting:)

 

Bless Your Food To Raise It’s Vibrations

In our daily life we all eat food that is not completely “perfect”. It’s just life!

Even if you want to eat junk food from time to time because it just tastes good, you can and should fully enjoy it. It’s good to know that you can raise the vibration of any food by blessing it. 

First of all, don’t ever eat the cake and then feel guilty about it.  It will affect your digestion and your guilt will make this food to be much more harmful to you than if you would just eat it and digest it with joy.

  
Our bodies are incredible chemical factories.  Incredible!  Do your best to enjoy and appreciate any food you eat.   Trust your body.  Say yourself that you will fully enjoy every food and your body’s incredible chemical factory will extract all  the goodness and eliminate everything else. 

This simple emotional shift will help your body’s ability to digest properly and eliminate what’s not needed.  Never blame yourself.  Don’t feel guilty.  Love yourself! 

This is very powerful affirmation you can use:

I love the food I eat and the food I eat loves me back.  All that I eat is good for me just because it is tasty and I enjoy eating it!  I digest and assimilate everything perfectly and easily.  I love and appreciate myself. 

Once you give yourself a permission to enjoy eating certain foods you will feel less and less cravings for them. 

How To Bless Your Food Before You Eat It

When you bless your food, you simply energetically connect with your food with positive intentions ~ you change its molecular structure and raise its vibration.   

This is a wonderful way to bless your food.  You can use any of your traditional blessings as well. 

Take slow and peaceful breath in and out, close your eyes, connect to your higher self by going deep within your heart, focus  that energy onto your food and affirm:  

I bless you with pure love and light.   I bless you with pure life energy. 
I bless you to bring only wellbeing and joy to every part of my body.

or I bless you to bring only wellbeing and joy to all of us (blessing for more people eating) 
or I bless you to bring only wellbeing and healing to my body (if you are improving your health)

And that’s it!  It only take a minute or two. 

 

You Can Also Bless Your Food While Cooking or Digesting It

 

Everything is vibration and connecting with your food energetically changes it’s molecular structure. 

Blessing your food while cooking it is a wonderful way of making your dish irresistibly tasty and nourishing.  Don’t be surprised when you will get a lot of compliments.  
 
If you forget to bless your food prior eating no worries.  You can bless your food and whole process of digestion.  It works very well!

Again take slow and peaceful breath in and out, close your eyes, connect to your higher self by going deep within your heart.  Send flow of loving and helping energy or light to your belly and affirm: 

I’m thankful and grateful for all the food I enjoyed.

I love the food I eat and the food I eat loves me back. 

I digest and assimilate perfectly and easily.  I love and appreciate myself. 

As we’ve mentioned before everything is vibration and we create reality around us.  This means that everything is subject to our vibrations,  including food and how we feel about it. 

See How Your Thoughts and Words Affect Molecular Structure of Water

I’m thankful and grateful for all the food I enjoyed. 

I love the food I eat and the food I eat loves me back. 

I digest and assimilate perfectly and easily. 

I love and appreciate myself. 

As we’ve mentioned before everything is vibration and we create reality around us.  This means that everything is subject to our vibrations,  including food and how we feel about it. 

Doctor Emoto beautifully captured the power of prayer when he exposed water to different intentions.  Once frozen and photographed the ice crystals tell the story.  

If positive prayer can affect the molecular structure of water, it can affect  your food and everything else.  Our food contains up to 95% of water (cucumber, zucchini, radish, celery)  and we are composed of 60-70% of water after all.
