Prayer is the most powerful technique to communicate to the unknown. The unknown is both within and without. It does not have the boundaries that our conscious mind creates and depends upon.
Many of us have old understandings of prayer. We think we have to sit and beg a distant saint or deity for acknowledgement or to fulfill a need. We were taught to ask or to plead and wish for something rather than communicate, recognize our Infinite nature and confirm our consciousness. We were told we were sinners and we had to redeem ourselves.
But, the Aquarian approach to prayer is different. Prayer is communication. You will learn so much more about prayer including:
-Prayer is tapping energy from the Unknown part of you. -Prayer is cultivated in two powerful ways ... Shakti and Bhakti.* -Prayer is the intunement of the mind into the Unknown. -Prayer is to create by intention.
-Prayer that moves the Divine comes with a full heart and love. -Prayer doesn’t give you God; you are already God.
Come to communicate prayerfully, to develop a prayerful attitude and to complete the link between your known and unknown.
$40 for 3 weeks or $15 to drop in.
