Un-Asked-For Prayers

We often hear that unanswered prayers are just a blessing from God, and I suppose that might sometimes be the case. However, in my studies of manifestation and the many miracles that are transforming lives simply because people are beginning to understand to expect more from life, and more from God, I have come to believe that that unanswered prayers are more often things that we never truly believe will occur. We ask for it, but then quickly retreat to "let God's will be done" and don't really believe that we should have a right to ask for the occurence. Our lack of faith may be why these prayers go unanswered.

So what is God's will? I believe God's will is to co-create our lives with us, which is the concept of free will. I don't believe he decides what is best for us; rather, that he allows us to live the lives we choose (or chose before we came here) and provides us with the circumstances to do so. Sometimes we have to be provided with additional circumstances or pushes, because we miss opportunities along the way, or because we did not believe enough to create the joy that was there for our taking.

There are so many incredible things happening with the power of thought, the power of positive expectations...the power of embracing our own role as creators with God. If we were made in God's image, then we can and should create alongside him. To leave everything up to "God's will" is somewhat of a cop-out, and I think that many people use it as a crutch so that they aren't really accountable for what comes their way, not accountable for creating their own realities. It is the Un-Asked-For prayers that we should be concerned with, for in the un-asking, our prayers often go unanswered, and miracles or gifts that could or should be ours are never realized.

When I followed the ideas of manifestation and asked for my purpose and Diving plan to be revealed to me, it came in full force almost immediately. Had I never asked, I might never have been reconnected to the gifts that had been available all along. I might never have realized my purpose of connecting others in a more powerful way, of being a messenger of thoughts that may lead others to a new and brighter way of thinking.

If you have not ventured into the ideas of manifestation, there are many good books and DVDs to guide you. The Secret was the primer, and provides a good foundation for the idea of manifestion and postive thought, and while it had somewhat of a materialistic tone to it, it provided a simple way for many to warm up to the idea of manifestation and see results. The Moses Code takes it to a more spiritual level, and is an excellent tool. I would encourage you to both read and watch the DVD for either or both of these, as they can provide a simple step into changing your life dramatically. Esther and Jerry Hicks' work with the law of attractions is slightly more indepth, and has provided a transformational path for many.

So, if you are ready for a more complete and fulfilling life, begin to practice the process of manifestation. It will change your life, and very possibly, the lives of others as well.

...Ask, and it shall be given.

I read this post last week, and it stayed on my mind, so I decided to re-read it tonight. Lack of faith is certainly one reason people might not pursue the ideas of manifestation and positive thought, but I also think (based on what I've seen since practicing Reiki) is that some people don't feel on some level that they deserve good things to happen to them. They are harboring such low self-love that on some level, they think if good things happen to them, it's just luck. I know this, because I used to be one of these people. Since practicing Reiki and since actively doing more work connecting with angels/spirit guides and establishing what I call my "gratitude practice", I have seen my prayers and requests answered more often than not. God's will is not this power that's out there in the ether somewhere; it's a part of us and like you so aptly said, we are charged with co-creating our lives through connection and inspiration from the Holy Spirit. Thanks again for reminding us of our responsibilities for realizing these Divine gifts.
