Thank you so much for your prayers for healing in the Gulf of Mexico. If you have been following the news, you have seen the signs of healing grace (such as this July 27 New York Times excerpt, below).
NYT: Gulf of Mexico Oil Slick Appears to Vanish Quickly
The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico appears to be dissolving far more rapidly than anyone expected, a piece of good news that raises tricky new questions about how fast the government should scale back its response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The immense patches of surface oil that covered thousands of square miles of the gulf after the April 20 oil rig explosion are largely gone, though there continue to be sightings of tar balls and emulsified oil here and there…
Mother Nature has her ways of dissolving the oil– but it seems incredibly fast this time…Thank you Divine Mother for your Light shining on this. What a blessing! Thank God! – And hold that thought for continued healing of the area. Stay with the prayers. As the quantum physicists have learned, the very atoms respond to our expectations. And with focused prayer it is magnified even more. The progress of getting the permanent plug in place are moving ahead of schedule – another sign of harmony and grace). So continued prayer sees it through to the end. This is a blessing for everyone, because the oceans connect us all.
I am very happy how all of this has unfolded so far. Just a reminder to let you know I do have a healing blog: healingprayers.wordpress.comIf you can, please do take a look at it sometime. It has many prayer updates about prayers for the Gulf of Mexico, and some videos with guided healing prayer visualizations. But this newsletter keeps you updated on the main themes each month, so don’t worry if you can’t access the healing blog. I am very grateful for your continued prayers!
These group prayers for larger concerns are very powerful. As the prayer need in the Gulf is winding down, I’ve been receptive to Divine Mother’s inspiration and guidance for the next prayer theme:
Please pray for Nayaswami Kriyananda because August a big month for him.
August 8-15 Spiritual Renewal Weekat Ananda’s Expanding Light – August 18 – he moves to Los Angeles for several big projects there. See him strong and well! August 20-22, (first weekend) he has several events in Los Angeles. The highlight is his 6PM lecture on August 22: “Yogananda: Avatar for the New Age. This will be in a beautiful outdoor venue, the Ford Amphitheatre. Please keep this in your prayers so that many souls may be touched by the light of God, Christ, Gurus.
Swamiji has written a screen play on the life of Paramhansa Yogananda, “The Wayshower.” Please keep this very special project in your prayers over the next months as details are worked out. May it be blessed with harmony and divine solutions, each and every step of the way.
Many people will be helping Swamiji with these events and projects, and with general outreach.
The other night I led a one hour prayer satsang for Swamiji in the Crystal Hermitage Chapel. Over the years we have seen that often when he embarks on a new, expansive project to introduce many new souls to God, Christ, Gurus his body and being seem to burn off karma before hand. Frankly, it seems to be something much bigger than just “his own.” karma. As his bodily temple has aged (he is in his 80’s) – and as we have matured spiritually – we have increasingly realized our responsibility (and joy!) to assist him in prayer and in action.
Think of Swamiji, and the upcoming move to Los Angeles – the City of Angels, the “Benares of the West.” Lovingly invoke the blessings of Divine Mother…Send waves of blessing that awaken many hearts to God…. See many receptive souls opening up to that Presence, and moving toward the Light in their daily lives… See people opening up to Divine Light and Love and the presence of the our blessed line of Masters… Visualize the Light of our Masters bathing the city in a beautiful Divine Light.
In that spirit, please also bless: The Wayshower….Many things are in developmental stage right now, and this movie has the potential to touch many, many souls. This project is developing in Los Angeles –but of course it has the potential to touch many souls in America and throughout the whole world. May all souls be blessed.
There are three main aspects of God’s energy: Creator, Sustainer, and Dissolver. Each new push forward for a spiritual work is an aspect of the creator energy. Your prayers bless it all. God bless you all!
