Completeness is a wonderful word that describes our natural state as Divine beings. It can be experienced through prayer and meditation. This is a prayer that I have used every day for years;
“The I AM Self in the midst of me is omnipotent, all seeing, all knowing, eternally doing and being.I know this, I feel this, I am aware of the radiating energy of the I AM Self going before me, creating according to the perfect patterns, revealing the Divine Standards of Wholeness, Abundance, Right Relations and True Place Fulfillment. I am shining abundance, I am wholeness flowing into perfect expression, I am the radiation of Divine love, I am the light of harmony, the beam of happiness, the ray of contentment, I am all. All that I could ever see I am and because I am all, I have all. I now see through the eyes of the I AM Self the high vision of completeness, divine order and glorious harmony in the world. The divine have is in perfect expression.
I have seen the truth, my affairs are an extension of the I AM Self and expression of my Divine consciousness. Because I have all there is nothing more to seek. I have gone from an attitude of becoming to a consciousness of being – I now rest in my beingness.”
This is a prayer from John Randolph Price’s book Empowerment. I love that prayer because it resonates in my being as truth. It makes me conscious of my natural state as a divine being. Prayer and meditation is lining up with Truth. Bringing whatever you are dealing with in your human life within to the place that is filled with the Presence of God and letting your self be healed by that Presence and empowered to know that you are greater than the thing you are dealing with.
The personal breakthroughs and healing you experience in that space are taken with you out into the world and contribute to your success. The time you invest in prayer and meditation pays dividends in blessings that you experience in your day and your life. Prayer is not supplication and wailing but feeling the certainty of the arms of the Divine around you and knowing that certainty as your own nature.
In his book, This Thing Called Life, Ernest Holmes says:
“Your place in Life (Life is a synonym for God or Source) is to become an outlet for ITs wisdom, intelligence, love, beauty and creativeness.
Your relationship to Life is that you are of like nature to IT. You are in IT and IT is in you. Some part of you exists as pure, unmanifest Spirit. This side of your nature is superior to anything that happens to you. You can prove this easily enough by this simple experiment. Some day when you feel depressed, unhappy, or melancholy, sit quietly by yourself and begin mentally to climb up out of your difficulties. Push your thought up through every obstruction, practicing affirmations and your sense of depression and fear will fade away.
If you continue this practice long enough, you will find yourself emerging in some part of your being which has never been troubled. You will be demonstrating that some part of you lives above confusion. Through this simple act you will have demonstrated that you have the freedom to be unhappy, and that you also have the freedom to convert this unhappiness into joy. You will be proving that you are an individual, but an individual who can draw on an invisible power.”
That is a very powerful concept, pushing your thought up through every obstruction. In my practice that means really looking at the thing that is weighing me down. Just laying it out, acknowledging every aspect of it and thereby bringing it into the light to be seen for what it really is – a lie. Michael Beckwith says that anything that would tell you that you are less than perfect is a lie and we must always confront a lie. When you confront a lie it vaporizes and you feel the release in your being.
Fear wants to hold you hostage but disintegrates the minute you look it in the eye.
We can also think of this in terms of vibration – Vibration is resonance with something. What you vibrate at you attract so if you are vibrating at worry you will have more to worry about and if you are vibrating at ease obstacles do not appear on your path. I’ve always talked about raising your vibration to equal the thing that you want to experience but now I am realizing that maybe we don’t need to work to raise our vibration but simply identify with the Power that is us and obstacles that lower our vibration will automatically fall away. Our natural vibration is completeness.
“You don’t have to work at being in the high vibration that is natural to you, because it is natural to you. But you do have to stop holding the thoughts that cause you to lower your vibration. It’s a matter of no longer giving your attention to things that don’t allow your cork to float or don’t allow you to vibrate in harmony with who you really are.”
So it is not aspiring to be loving and graceful but letting the love and grace that is inherent within us out. The feeling of being out of harmony with who you really are is fear. It is unnatural. That is why it is uncomfortable. How wonderful to know that you can take refuge in that God Self and feel what is truly natural as what is unnatural fades away.
“I am shining abundance, I am wholeness flowing into perfect expression, I am the radiation of Divine love, I am the light of harmony, the beam of happiness, the ray of contentment, I am all. All that I could ever see I am and because I am all, I have all. I now see through the eyes of the I AM Self the high vision of completeness, divine order and glorious harmony in the world.” John
—Randolph Price – Empowerment
That is a great affirmation – The high vision of completeness, divine order and harmony in the world is talking about us – we are our world, we create our world and our world IS complete and in order right now. That is a wonderful thing to contemplate and identify with. Not only does it nurture tolerance and compassion for others but for ourselves as well. And any time we can cut ourselves some slack it’s a good thing. We are the ones that make things difficult for ourselves, we throw obstacles into our own path and that is also something to contemplate. Ease and flow are the vibrations of the God Self. They are the cues so to speak for leading an intuitive life. If you are not in ease and flow, it’s time to go within and get a healing.
I just want to end with this Note from the Universe I got recently that actually prompted this show:
Should you ever hear that voice inside exclaim that you’re working too slow, are too easily distracted, or that you should take life more seriously, please rest assured, dearest, that it absolutely, positively is not me.
I’m the one saying, “You totally rock!” –
Love and a Million Blessings
