In this season of Light, how different would our world be if we prayed for Peace on Earth and Goodwill for All, absolutely believing that it was already so?

The Spiritual Law of "Pray Believing"
In this Season of Light we participate in the Mass Celebration of the Christ, or Christmas. Blessing the Light-workers, Peace-makers, Way-showers, Servants of the Most High and All of Life. That includes us all, praise God! Reporting the ways and means of recognizing, anchoring and magnifying the Go(o)d that is everywhere expressing.
It is time to reflect on the Guidance as given by the One Who became the Christ and dwelt among and within us all. That One who instructed us to “Pray believing that you have and you shall receive.” Have you tried this lately? This instruction was/is specifically given to/for you. Have you prayed absolutely believing? If not, could you be influenced to do so? In this season of Light, how different would your world be if you prayed, just as an example, for Peace on Earth and Goodwill for All, absolutely believing that it was already so? Join me in an experiment if you will, let’s say from now until the first day of the New Year, and "pray believing" for Peace on Earth. For Prosperity and Perfection. For the revelation of a world that works for everyone.
If the desire of your heart (again as an example,) is “Peace of Mind” and appears to be lacking, look for it somewhere, anywhere. And the Law, “Seek and you will find,” must be fulfilled. Find what you are seeking in your neighbor, co-worker, role model, secret santa, imaginary friend. You will realize that “what you are looking for, you are looking with.” Once you have found the quality of “Peace of Mind,” bless it and thereby automatically multiply and magnify it. In the blessing you begin to resonate and vibrate at the same frequency of “Peace of Mind.” It’s a good thing too, because another Law says “You can only have what you are willing to become in consciousness.” So in blessing the Peace (or Health, Prosperity, Confidence, whatever your soul is calling forth) you enter into an association/communion with it. And lo and behold, It is Done! As in, “…unto you as you believe.” Uniting with the Thing Itself allows It to express through you.
As a restatement of the so-called “Secret,” (Have you seen it seven times yet?) you attract what you are. And you are what you think. So what you think/bless you attract. No more seeing stuff in others and wishing that you had it/ were it. But knowing that you couldn’t recognize it in them if it were not already within you. This may all seem too simple to be true, but that’s how you know that it is (true.) Set your intention to follow these ‘simple’ Laws until the New Year/You and prove me now herewith if you are not showered with blessings without number.
The Gift of Grace
Speaking of simplicity, there’s someone here waiting in the wings of the angelic realms who wants to meet you. Her name is Grace. She is full of herself, if I must say so myself, in the most positive and wonder-filled ways. She’s come a great distance from the upper/inner spheres to usher in your New Life. Please open the door to your heart and welcome her. Don’t deny her entry because there is no room in the in/ner working of your mind. Meet Grace. You can’t make her happen, but you can make her welcome. She is the givingness/gift of the Spirit and comes not because you ‘deserve’ her, but simply as a part of your Divine Inheritance. Be willing to be touched by an angel. You are often entertaining them unawares. Evoke her entry/presence with your acceptance, receptivity and agreeability. Nurture her with your love. She is sufficient unto you. The Spirit says “Behold I send an angel before thee to keep thee in all thy ways.” Make her welcome and bid her to stay. Attune yourself to her vibration and become yourself graceful and gracious.
Grace will influence you to light a candle of understanding in your heart that will not be extinguished. Taking part in harmonious cerebrations and rituals helps to embody the quality of Grace and attract the attention of her other angel cousins- Faith, Serenity, Peace, Prosperity, whichever ones your New Life is calling forth. Acknowledge the blessings of Christmas, the Winter Solstice, Chanukah, and Kwanza with music, sacred readings and devotional reverence and celebration. Wherever you are go into Meditation and light a candle with a prayer in your heart. A candle emits such a small amount of actual light but the Illumination it ignites in the heart allows entrance into transcendence and peace.
Thomas Merton says, “Grace is not a strange, magic substance which is subtly filtered into our souls to act as a kind of spiritual penicillin. Grace is Unity, Oneness within ourselves, Oneness with God.” This Oneness that Grace is can attract the radiance of perfect health and wellbeing. Grace is ever-available to transform your financial energy into the “all needs met” consciousness. Grace is the infusion of Power and Beauty fueled by the Presence of God. Grace sanctifies and beautifies. She helps to harmonize. Since everything we need, require and desire is already within us, 100% of spiritual growth and development is about letting go of what no longer serves us. God’s Grace will see you through the process of releasing the pain, the attachments, the emotional tug of wars and unmerry-go-rounds.
Grace is Donum Dei, a Gift of God. She is given to you that the Word might be fulfilled, “By the Grace of God I am What I am.” In this Season of generosity of heart and receptivity of mind, may the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make Its face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
Grace be unto you and peace, from That Which is, and Which Was and Which Is to come. Now let us grow in Grace.
Always and All Ways
