Today’s personal journal assignment centers on dissolving pain and replacing it with beauty.
First, a Word about Prayer
To whom you pray and how you pray is personal. Prayer is a foreign word to some people. To others, prayer is a beloved companion. Some of us live with confused intention. We may desire healing through prayer, but simply don’t know how to pray effectively.
It’s vital to let go of expectation that your prayer will be answered at a certain time, on a certain day. Otherwise, we feel abandoned when prayer is not answered according to our guidelines.
If you have confused intention, here is all you need to know about prayer: any act of prayer made with pure intent engages a creative response.
Working through your personal journal, we will learn to dissolve pain, with a little known method of prayer – a prayer of denial. Yes, we will tell our pain “No” and divert our attention to beauty.
In Pain, we Pray
When we’re sick, when we’re troubled, when we’re confused, it is natural to turn to prayer to put an end to our pain. By our prayers, we set a mysterious energy in motion that begins healing in ways we do not understand.
I urge you to welcome unrealized possibilities even if the result of your prayer is not totally understandable at the moment.
Journal a Beauty Prayer
Here is your personal journal assignment:
Students of the mind have been taught the power of beauty in this manner. Take time to think of something you consider beautiful. It could be a beautiful piece of art. You could select from nature’s bounty of beauty, such as sunset or a rainbow. Beauty to you may be found in a flower garden or one flower. It may be an antique armoire.
When you have decided, name the beautiful thing on a clean page of your personal journal. Describe its image. Are there scents associated with our thing of beauty? What is its color? Texture? Do other feelings arise when you study the object of beauty?
Sit with the image. Feel its connection.
When you are ready, briefly write your statement of denial in your personal journal. You may use my sample or put in your own words:
“No!” I do not have to accept this pain. Spirit is dissolving all my negative thought of pain. I release pain and substitute beauty. I radiate and attract beauty. And, so it is.
If you’re not a prayer person, write a poem or short story or draw a picture about the object you selected entitled “Beauty”.
