Prayer can be a very powerful activity, both in terms of making things happen in the world, as well as simply opening yourself up to feeling better.
Group prayer seems to be even more powerful, for when two or more people gather together, the total is greater than the sum of the parts. That is, people are even more powerful together than they are individually.
Something you can do with a group of people is to gather together and spend some time in group prayer. Focus on one person at a time and progress around the circle. For each person, say something like this:
“John, we now send you Divine Love. We set the intention for you to have the clarity and wisdom to see beyond your current level in order to understand how to evolve to the next level of consciousness.”
Notice how we’re not praying for the person to somehow be lifted up. Instead we pray for them to be opened to understanding how to better lift themselves up. (Ego transcendence is something you have to do yourself. No one is going to save you. Nothing outside of yourself will.)
The feeling of prayer seems ever more noticeable when others are praying for you. You can actually FEEL the Love flowing into you.
Love energy is transmitted through the heart chakra in the center of your chest. It is sent out from the front of your chakra and received from the back of your chakra. When praying for someone, you intend to send Love out from the front of your heart chakra.
As you open yourself up to receive Love from others, you can literally actually FEEL the back of your heart chakra starting to well up with beautiful loving energy.
To make the prayer even more powerful, hold the TAT pose while sending energy. In short, TAT is a technique allowing you to release emotional trauma. While holding the pose, we’ve found that it’s much easier to open yourself up to the flow of energy. The “stuckness,” so to speak, is much more quickly let go of.
If/when you pray, how do you do it?
