Occupy Blogosphere – Thursday, August 16, 2012

PRAYER takes many forms and has many names –

 

Extension of Energy?

Love Wrap?

Distant Intentionality?

Who cares!  It works.

.

Every Thursday

we OCCUPY this space.

We give this planet a shot of

fun, support and positive energy.

.

Share something you’ve been wanting to tell the world.

or

Do an Occupy of your own and add a link in comments.

.

This space thrives on positive material.  Soul Dipper reserves the right to decline any submission that is presented with a flair for the negative, deemed  to be derogatory or could be surmised as slanderous.

  2. I was really taken with your post, thank you so much for sharing this. I’ve linked to the website and signed up as I’m keen to know more.

    I was struggling this morning walking to work as I had no idea what to write to add positivity to “Bring on the Light” today. As usual the universe provided. This is my wee snipped for today….

    • You amaze me, Jacqueline. I think your Writing Angel polishes up your heart as time chugs on to the “lunch 15” Well done – again, you have me in stitches. Thanks so much – the spirit of the elderly holds a very special place in my heart.

  3. Yes, I feel that this works. When my grandfather had leukemia a rush was made by family and friends to pray for his health and well-being. Over time he improved and I’m unable to say if he had an actual remission but he was able to continue along living normally. Eventually he passed away and I always felt that it was because as life went on less and less people prayed for him. Our own lives carried their own momentum and we “took up” other things. I felt that upon some people having learned that Grandpa still had leukemia they felt their prayers had gone unanswered.

    Such was not the case with me and I still pray for those that need prayers for their healthy well-being. I believe that the power of prayer wields all of the power and precision of a surgeons’ scalpel. We just have to use it .

    Thanks.

    • You’ve got the key, IF. We don’t know what the overall plan is at all. Dire circumstances exist not just for the one experiencing them. As we mature in faith, we realize the scope – the breadth and depth – of prayer is not just for the target, but also for the one praying. Transformation has a shotgun attitude, I’ve experienced. However, the buckshot only affects the ones willing to stand in the line of fire.

  4. I read Larry Dossey’s work long ago and was flabbergasted. Later on in my life (like today) I view prayer very differently. Some of this came about through my encounters with extreme right wing christians who have had upon me a rather negative effect. Today I see prayer as the energy of love (something that I suspect can be measured). Thank you for this. Isn’t he amazing?

    • Thanks, Raven, prayer is love energy in my life as well. It explains a lot about its inexplicability (my word). If I come across a link to any interview with him, I will happily share it with you, Raven. And anyone else, of course…

    • Aw, Arindam, that is such a wise statement. Don’t forget that you can link one of your posts with your comment. That’s what the Occupy is about, spreading the good, positive and inspirational.

      Do you do personal visits? 😀 But not today! Don’t ally-oop over here to cold ol’ Canada. In fact, it’s so hot here that I’m too lazy to even make a cup of tea. My computer is making funny noises because it’s so hot! Time to head for the beach.

      • Ha! Yes I do, but only if I am invited. 🙂 By the way do not worry about making tea; I am really good at that. You have to just share me your experiences and I will just keep on listening to this intelligent person’s voice. And again I am born and brought up in one of the most hottest place of my country that to be with out an air conditioned room, so do not worry about that too. 🙂

        Amy aunty, I want to link one post of mine, which I took while working for a chapter of my book. It will always remain special. Because this old man in picture has something similar in his way of standing to Mahatma Gandhi. But let me say you, I am not sure if when Mahatma gandhi’s dream of seeing India, a happy and shining India will come true. As nothing much really changed in small interior parts of my country.

        • Amy aunty sorry for all these typing mistakes.
          I wrote one picture, instead of one post and again “not sure when Mahatma Gandhi” instead of “if when Mahatma gandhi”. 🙂

          • Arindam, you’ve filled me with Awe today. By Awe, I mean having “deep respect and reverence for the Source of life.” – quoted from the Virtues Project. The goodness and reverence that comes from the common human being is powerful. It is an incredible antidote to the egoism seen in too many leadership positions. Any leader remembering this common goodness deserves the respect and support of a multitude. Gandhi achieved it. I hope his soul has been training another!

  6. That driftwood drifted exactly where it needed to be…with a little help from a very creative and spiritual friend. The same could be said for all of nature’s creations, don’t you think?

    • And, Becca, that’s what prayer is most for me. On another subject, I hear Texas had to spray the mosquitoes because of West Nile Virus…what a dilemma. What a decision to have to make! Hope it doesn’t bother anyone.

    • Just visited your Occupy…thanks, Diana! So how does the little red hen get away with doing everything herself? She hasn’t got knees so can’t get down to ask for help? 🙂

    • At times in my life when my faith faltered, I just wanted to swear at God. At one time, my Guides assured me that being cursed at least acknowledges Presence …the opposite of not believing. 🙂

  7. I do believe that the power of Prayer is an irrefutable aspect of life Amy…and that it is this Power or Distant Intentionality that has the power to change destiny or fate or whatever name we give it…
    Many thanks for sharing…

    God bless…

    • I’m going to meet with a Healer in Vancouver in December who taught Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Astronaut) how to heal himself. Dr. Mitchell had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and after using this healer’s techniques, the tumour disappeared. This man has taught thousands and healed just as many. I can hardly wait! I’d love to teach others the techniques.
