When you have learned how to decide with God, all decisions become as easy and as right as breathing. There is no effort, and you will be led as gently as if you were being carried down a quiet path to summer. — A Course in Miracles
I want to share a technique with you that I’ve been using for years. I feel it’s played a central role in manifesting miracles in my life. I have a box on a shelf in my home office that says “Help Wanted.” It sits by a lovely sculpture of a glass angel who watches over it. It contains letters I’ve sent to God. (Please substitute “Higher Power,” “Universe” or some other word if that better matches your beliefs.)
I consider prayer a vital element in allowing abundance into our lives. Prayer is how we talk with God and intuition is one of the ways God answers. I’m a bit of a pragmatist and sometimes I’d wonder if God heard my prayers. So I devised a system that satisfied my need for some sort of a tangible signal that I was sending a communication to God that I wished him to hear and take action on. It works like this:
I write a letter to God addressing my concerns. I always feel a sense of relief in writing these. It’s as if I’m talking with a good friend and sharing my concerns. I pour out my worries, fears and anxieties on the page.
Then I go a step further. I make specific requests of God to help me in certain ways, always adding, “if this is in my highest interest.” Far be it from me to tell God what to do in my life! But I like to think God is interested in helping me with my specific concerns and will assist me in unique ways that I could never have come up with on my own. I figure that the Power that created the Universe and all its inhabitants will certainly know how to assist each of us in an easy and effortless way.
What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts and results!
