The Power of Prayer

Angel of ReceivingWhen I was a kid, I remember my father telling me, “Never underestimate the power of prayer.”

I remember thinking it a little odd, because at the time he claimed to be an atheist. (Although he would qualify it: “I’m a Christian atheist,” he would say.)

Maybe it was the very incongruity of it that made it stick in my mind. But stick it did, even though I didn’t understand it fully until years later.

You may or may not have noticed I’ve been a little quiet lately. I’ve been experiencing some profound shifts. I won’t go into them now, except to say that miracles happen.

Miracles DO happen.

And prayer DOES work.

Profoundly.

Never, EVER underestimate the power of prayer.

Homage to Black Elk

Today’s Affirmation:
“I am a relative to all that is.”
Something prompted me recently to pick an old copy of “Black Elk Speaks” up off the bookshelf. Thought I’d share with you a beautiful prayer inspired by his words, and recited by his biographer, John Neihardt:

According to Neihardt’s grandson Robin, “Neihardt wrote the prayer shortly after the 1931 historic talks he had with Black Elk at Pine Ridge Reservation. He was able to capture in poetic form what the great Sioux holy man was relating to him in Lakota conversation.” (You can read more and follow Robin on YouTube here.)
Enjoy!
Love & blessings,
Christie

Your job: love it or hate it?

Horse spirit animal affirmation posterI love my work. It’s super creative, and I love that I can help people, too!

But I didn’t always feel that way about work.

Before I created this job that I love, I had my share of not-so-fun occupations.

The worst was working in a call center. Crushing micromanagement and often crabby customers made working there kind of an ordeal. Most of us representative spent our days watching the clock, waiting for the work day, and the work week, to end.

After a while I decided something had to change.

One of my dad’s favorite sayings kept coming back to me: “Never underestimate the power of prayer!”

So, I started something new: each morning before going in to work, I would sit in the parking lot for a moment and say a little prayer.

I would ask for protection from negative energy. And I would ask that the work I did be for the highest good, and to bring blessings to everyone whose life I touched that day.

Did it work?

Well, I can’t tell for sure how it may have affected others, but the job did become more tolerable after that. Customers seemed happier. I felt less stressed at the end of the day. And after a few months of this the opportunity came to leave for a better job.

I hope that you are working a job you love.

But if you’re not, try my little experiment and see how it works for you. 🙂
Love & blessings,

Christie
