Well, I didn’t know that we ourselves have power to create! Create what? Create how? I thought only God could create anything and we are just small, weak beings. I heard countless sermons that if I obeyed all the rules, I could ask for help from the supernatural. However, this belief leaves a person with the idea that to have any help from God, you must become perfect, or near perfect. This would mean not speaking bad words, no smoking, no drinking, no lies, no angry thoughts, no laziness and so forth. If you fall short, you’re out of luck! The automatic guilt you feel will interfere with and short circuit the answer to your prayer request!
When you “believe” you are unworthy, then how can you have to “faith” you need to receive answers to your prayers? Just read the book by Kenneth E. Hagin called, “Authority of the Believer”. His revelations received from the “spirit realm” are fascinating.
Of course, you can ask forgiveness but there’s always the guilt thing, I didn’t feel free to stay hooked up and in tune because of the sin consciousness. In church we were told constantly that we were a bunch of sinners and are guilty. It was just an internal belief I had acquired because of the guilt I felt resulting from abuse. My belief was that I was not worthy of good things! I was told about sin over and over. So, there I was, just reacting to circumstances. My life circumstances were terrible!
No one really knew about the Law of Attraction. I read The Secret, by Rhonda Burne. The book gave a great basic explanation I needed to know. I discovered that I kept mentally focused on what I didn’t want! Then, I would have even more of what I didn’t want!
But now I know to focus on what I do want! I found out about the use of my own focus of attention when I heard about Esther Hicks and how she “received” messages from Abraham. I don’t know if you have heard of Abraham, but if you will dare to hear this, you will be able to see for yourself that exceptional wisdom is coming from this source. You will know that you know when you hear truth.
Don’t Focus on the Absence of What You Want
For instance, how many times have you wished circumstances were different? Do you visualize the life you want with a feeling of its absence? Do you dream of having better things, situations, people in your life with tears? This means you are focusing on the ABSENCE of what you want. Therefore, you are actually “creating” more of what you don’t want!
So, change that feeling of absence of what is wanted, to a feeling of having these things on the way! Check out how that feels! There are no tears now, no feeling of the absence! You now are happy and joyful because you know it is on the way. This is what is called, “faith”.
But first, you must understand the truth about your beliefs concerning whether God is mad at you. He is revealing to people all over the world that He is not mad! He has already forgiven us because we are “little” children down here trying to learn to love better. The messages reported by many people with near death experiences, state that our very own guilt interferes with our receiving prayers answered!
When we find out the truth, then we can stick with it. Did you ever hear that the truth will set you free? Free from what? Free from thinking and believing wrong beliefs! It is our own incorrect beliefs that interfere with our receiving help from the “unseen realm”.
MY PRAYER: Close your eyes, concentrate. Pretend as if you are speaking to your guardian angel, or guide, or God. Say this:
“If I have any beliefs which are interfering with my better life, I ask that I may become aware of this so that I can change them. When something comes to my mind, I will write it here and contemplate it.”
