Happy New Year everyone!
I believe in the power of prayer. Even if you have no belief but are willing to use your breath/thoughts to send out your vibrations into the universe, it is a prayer.
For some, like myself, nature is our religion. Among the Yoruba’s of South Western Nigeria, I will sometime refer to God as Olodumare, because of my involvement in their tradition, but my real reasoning as a spiritual elder, a spiritualist is that my God is energy, and it’s external existence is remarkable as well as it’s internal.
My perception of God is personal. I am at a place where I feel that accepting “it” ( The God energy) is enough. I pray you will find and personalize your God one day also. God has no ego, remember this.
Years ago when the going began to get harder and the rough waters of life splashed me and threatened to swallow me up, my only out look was to the God I served at that time (when I was Christian). I began to receive messages from that same Christian God I prayed to the night before I left Jamaica for the first time. God would send to me messages with human beings and they were countless, the many who came to me. The message they brought was
“Seek Ye the kingdom of God and all his righteousness and all things will be added unto you”, Matthew 6:33.
When the messages became too much, I would run down the street, covering my ears and cry. While in despair, God had remembered me and had reminded me that I had to reconnect. So humans became his messengers, and finally I heeded. I sought the kingdom of God and at that time for me it was church. From there I began to wake up. My consciousness unfolded, and eventually I realized who I was and my mission here.
Those years were hard but important.
Today, I want to pray for each and everyone of you who will read this post today or any other day.
Last night, I laid on my bed and cried, silent tears streaming down the side of my face, cool to the skin because of my ac. I was in the darkness of my room, overlooking my life from years gone by. In my mind, I was thanking God for life. Life is a gift, and most do not even know. I was thanking God for health, this is my wealth. I cried and I thanked my tears, for they offered me comfort and release. Freedom comes with pain at times, but the end result is what we are after.
To All of You…
May this new year find you all in good stead with your creator.
May all your goals and aspirations manifest from the beginning of this new year and continue for ever.
You will always have the strength to carry on.
You will face challenges, for they must come, but you will always overcome them, and they will never come with destruction.
This year, all negatives will turn into positives for you in every way
You will never lack.
You will always be content.
You will find peace and comfort.
You will find love and happiness.
You will enjoy success and prosperity.
You will see tears and pain as a transition into good things to come
You will find more light into your life this year.
You will show gratitude to all who have assisted you in life. Ingratitude soils the spirit and its journey, may your spirit nor your spiritual family never be soiled!
Remember the beggar, he is your helper, assist him while he assists you.
You will never see money as your God, for it shall serve you and you shall never serve it.
We are all our brothers keeper, so embrace all and everyone, do not discriminate, do not judge.
While assisting your fellow beings here on earth, they will assist you as well. May this be so.
Parents, you will never bury your children.
And to those who desperately want a child, this is the year your wish will come true. I declare it!
You will find your rightful spouse
Shine your light, if you were not a light bringer, you would not be reading this prayer, shine!
You will have no illness.
All that you need here in this earth realm will unfold this year to you, may you find your mission and complete it well.
You will arise and be conscious this year
From this, all your burdens will be laid to rest and you will find peace.
As of this new year, you will be released from bondage of any kind: emotional, spiritual, financial, etc.
I pray for the children of the world, may eternal light beam from within. Guide their way and protection be theirs.
May all wars come to an end and peace reign as we continue our journey to the new earth.
I pray for all the elders, good or bad in how they lived their life, that they find peace and happiness in their golden years, and come to a reckoning within themselves and pass on knowledge through their experience to the younger ones.
We must use our lives to benefit others. This is true wealth.
When you leave this earth, your name will be remembered in the minds of many who you have taught or enlightened.
2018 will not come with death for you and yours, but life and more life!
This is my prayer to you all for this new year 2018, may it be your year of true peace and happiness. Ase, Ase, Ase. (May it be so, may it be so, may it be so).
I love you all
