The voice of our soul… the voice of our intuitive knowing… it is our invaluable God-given privilege! We were created with the faculty of accessing some of the wisdom of our Creator! This all-knowing, eternal wisdom… We are gifted with the ability to become aware of its directions, its instructions and counsel. We can attune to Divine guidance. We can learn to communicate through this language of feelings and thoughts, this language of clear, spontaneous perceptions and understanding, of vivid images encoded with meaning. We can receive this profound, peaceful inner knowing, this experience of heavenly love, of feeling vibrantly alive.
Higher awareness opens up for us when we are eager to receive it, eager to honor it and hold on to it. It can spare us many mistakes, mishaps and confusions. It can save our lives. To hear it we must be willing to subdue our loud clamoring skepticism, fears and doubts. Perhaps there may have been many occasions in our lives when we heard that inner guidance. We just didn’t know what it was, where it came from. We just took it
for granted, as though it was coming from our reasoning mind.
There is an easy way to open ourselves to Divine guidance. It comes through the simple art known as prayer, the art of talking with the infinite One that created us. We can communicate with the Creator of the Universe because our inner being, our soul, is created with His very same qualities of love, joy, wisdom, and the ability to choose and be creative. It is our immense privilege “to be created in His image.” We have no idea what this means and how vast our potential is.
Addressing the Infinite Creative Presence is our most effective way to free ourselves from our burdens. From the deepest depths we can cry out to the Supreme Source of life and love, we can cry out for help in freeing ourselves from our limitations. We can pour out our heart and allow our soul to speak. Our soul, our innermost self, our divine essence, knows the truth. It knows our true origins.
As we take a moment to focus our attention on the Infinite Presence of Blissful Love and Eternal Power which created us, we can feel our heart opening, and our mind expanding. Soon a wondrous process of communication will flow forth in magical moments of high inspiration. Our heart feels light, our mind quiets down and
stays still, and this allows clear perceptions of true reality. As we persevere and continue focusing on the Infinite Presence, the healing process deepens. We eventually feel blessed with an increasing sense of well being, high expectation, true purpose and vast potential. And our inspired words reflect the very same understanding that the Divine Presence seeks to communicate to us.
Our words of prayer can flow forth like a melody: “Master of Creation, in the depths of our inner beings we know that You exist, that You are here, that our life is in Your hands, that You care. We trust in Your wisdom, in Your love for us. We trust that You planted us here in this world to learn some invaluable lessons and to strengthen our will to serve Your blessed Presence of love. We can sense that we are here to be refined and prepared to grow in strength and courage, in friendship, in compassion, devotion, creativity and oh, so much more! You have great plans for us. We trust that as we expand these precious qualities, we will eventually enter ever vaster realms of high awareness of strength, life abundant, eternal beauty and blissful love.
Please help us really understand all this as we struggle with our everyday busy lives in this world, as we plow through our stressful activities, as we are dealing with disappointments, hurts,
pain, anger and resentment. Help us still our minds, persevere in quietness, go much deeper in our search, in our dedication to true Reality. We yearn to focus more on Your awesome Being that can at times, manifest within us in robes of Light, enfolding us in peace. You created us to receive Your blessings, Your loving kindness, to hear Your voice. Our minds long to be flooded with the beauty and grace of Your awesome Presence.
You are inviting us to take refuge in Your love. We can curl up in Your arms like a child in its mother’s tender embrace. We are sharing all our hurts and fears with You, and we know that you can dissolve them and replace them with joy and confidence. We are releasing our disappointments, resentments, and anger into Your Presence of infinite compassion. We can learn to forgive just as you forgive us. We are handing over to You our loneliness, our mistakes, discouragements, confusions, weakness and temptations, and we trust that all these will soon be transmuted and dissolved into the bliss of Your Presence, for You are forever waiting to bless us. Through our eagerness to know you and to help ourselves and our fellow human beings, we can receive inner freedom, harmony and joy.
We are eagerly entrusting our hopes and dreams, our creative desires and plans, our yearnings for
the highest and the sacred into Your loving care. We know that soon Your answers will come, with the blessings, the strength, the calm and the clarity to act according to Your guidance.
Thank You, beloved Creator, for Your eternal love and compassion, Your invaluable support and help. You are sending us Your blessed guidance through the very words we are inspired to tell You! This is our heart to heart talk together.
We love and treasure everything about You. As we share our love with You, You respond with Your infinite Love from higher realms of bliss, so awesome we hardly dare to believe in it. You are our most invaluable Friend – our eternal, supreme, kindly Companion. You treasure and honor us. We yearn to serve You in joy and deep devotion to You and to Your children – to our family, friends, community and mankind. The more we love You, the more we love our brethren, the more Your loving kindness shines forth over us with a glowing sense of happiness.
Thank You for our immense privilege of receiving from Your Source of all Good – for the ability to open our awareness to Your abounding blessings of joy, of wisdom, peace and strength, through our choices for love.
Thank You, Master of Creation, for enlightening, instructing, and strengthening us through the very words we are affirming with You in our prayers. Thank You for the joy of spreading light together in partnership with You.”
