by Sonia Choquette, Ph.D: One of the best ways to assist your evolution into higher consciousness…
and stabilize your sixth sense so that you become an evolved being is to pray. Prayer immediately raises your personal vibration and ushers more light into your body, opens your heart chakra, which in turn activates your sixth sense and connects you with your Higher Self. Prayer isn’t complicated or difficult. It is simply the practice of communicating on an intimate heart-to-heart level with your Creator. When you pray you ask your personal ego to step aside and you surrender your personal energy over to a Higher Power, asking it to work through you, to bring about balance and healing. Prayer allows Divine power to do for you what your own personal power and resources operating on a five sensory level can’t. Just in case you don’t already know this, in blind study after blind study, research shows that prayer works, so even science confirms that prayer is probably a good idea. Prayer heals. Prayer calms. Prayer strengthens. Prayer balances and restores order. Prayer attracts solutions that we could never even imagine possible, which is what we call miracles. Prayer is a direct link to heaven and keeps us plugged into our source.
Some people wonder if there is a correct way to pray. I believe the answer to this is, “Yes, there is. Your way.” Prayer is such a personal and intimate connection with Divine Source that the right way to pray is in whatever way you personally intuitively feel moved to pray. After all, prayer, like everything else soulful, is an art, and your prayer is your art.
The other day I went to my computer to log onto the Internet for something and much to my dismay there was something wrong with my computer and I couldn’t establish the connection I had wanted to. I felt frustrated and really disappointed that I was unable to gain access to this vast and free resource when I really needed it. Praying is very similar to logging on to the Internet, only better. It is spiritually logging on to Divine Wisdom, the ultimate resource for needed support and guidance.
Like everything else that connects us to our sixth sense, prayer is most effective when practiced. That means we should pray all the time, until it becomes automatic. Pray when you first wake up in the morning. Pray when you take a shower. Pray before your drink your morning coffee and when you drive to work. Pray for direction, for the easiest and best way to get through your day. Pray for inspiration, and for your health. Pray for success in your projects and for patience when those around you get on your nerves. Pray for forgiveness and an open heart. Pray for the answer to your problems and where to find your car keys. Pray for creative inspiration and for better health. Pray to release the past and to open your mind and heart to a better future. Pray for the willingness to let go of the old and outdated and reach out for something new. Pray for understanding. Pray for faith. Pray for peace. Pray for a happy heart in spite of everything. That’s just for starters. You can then begin to pray for others, and their well-being. Pray for your family, your job, and your co-workers. Pray for your enemies and your competition. And most of all, pray for the world and world peace. In fact, pray for everything you can think of.
When you pray you instantly raise your personal vibration to a higher and more harmonious energy pattern. This higher vibration has a healing effect on your physical and emotional body. It calms your anxiety, soothes your nerves, and eases your tension. It has helped relieve high blood pressure, lift depression, and cure sickness, although the scientists aren’t sure how. In fact prayer has even been known to cause miracles!
Prayer is basic training for anyone who wants to become a six-sensory being. It not only opens you up to receiving assistance from a higher power, it also relieves you of the stress of “figuring things out” for yourself. Prayer simply turns things over to Divine Source for solution and takes the pressure off of you. One of the hallmarks of a six sensory being is the absence of worry over how things will work out.
There are no instructions when it comes to prayer. Pray whenever you feel like it, about anything you feel like, and in whatever way you feel like. Don’t worry if you are doing it right. God knows better than you what you mean and need. The point of prayer is not so much what you pray for, or how, because we are often confused when we pray, but that in praying we are allow for Divine Spirit to enter into our hearts and into our lives to straighten things out. The beauty of prayer is that with it God does straighten things out and always better than we could have asked for or imagined.
